WARNING

To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose the unit to rain or moisture.

Do not install the appliance in a confined space, such as a bookcase or built-in cabinet.

To prevent fire, do not cover the ventilation of the apparatus with news papers, table-cloths, curtains, etc.

And don’t place lighted candles on the apparatus.

To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not place objects filled with liquids, such as vases, on the apparatus.

Don’t throw away the battery with general house waste, dispose of it correctly as chemical waste.

• If the unit is brought directly from a cold to a warm location, moisture may condense inside the DVD

Home Theatre System and cause damage to the lenses. When you first install the unit, or when you move it from a cold to a warm location, wait for about

30 minutes before operating the unit.

This appliance is classified as a CLASS 1

LASER product. The label is located on the bottom of the unit.

Precautions

Safety

• If anything falls into the cabinet, unplug the unit and have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it any further.

• The unit is not disconnected from the AC power source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall outlet (mains), even if the unit itself has been turned off.

• Unplug the unit from the wall outlet if you do not intend to use it for an extended period of time. To disconnect the cord, pull it out by the plug, never by the cord.

Installing

• Allow adequate air circulation to prevent internal heat buildup.

• Do not place the unit on surfaces (rugs, blankets, etc.) or near materials (curtains, draperies) that may block the ventilation slots.

• Do not install the unit near heat sources such as radiators, or air ducts, or in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust, mechanical vibration, or shock.

• Do not install the unit in an inclined position. It is designed to be operated in a horizontal position only.

Welcome!

Thank you for purchasing Sony DVD Home

Theatre System. Before operating this system, please read this manual thoroughly and retain it for future reference.

Precautions

On power sources

AC power cord must be changed only at the qualified service shop.

On placement

• Place the system in a location with adequate ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the system.

• At high volume, over long periods of time, the cabinet becomes hot to the touch. This is not a malfunction.

However, touching the cabinet should be avoided. Do not place the unit in a confined space where ventilation is poor as this may cause overheating.

• Do not block the cooling fan or ventilation slots by putting anything on the system. Also, do not place the system on a soft surface such as a rug that might block the ventilation holes on the bottom. The system is equipped with a high power amplifier. If the cooling fan or ventilation slots are blocked, the unit can overheat and malfunction.

• Do not place the system in a location near heat sources, or in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust, or mechanical shock.

On operation

• If the system is brought directly from a cold to a warm location, or is placed in a very damp room, moisture may condense on the lenses inside the system. Should this occur, the system may not operate properly. In this case, remove the disc and leave the system turned on for about half an hour until the moisture evaporates.

• When you move the system, take out any disc. If you don’t, the disc may be damaged.

• For power saving purposes, set the system to standby mode by pressing the " / 1 button (the STANDBY indicator lights up). To turn off the system completely, remove the AC power cord (mains lead) from the wall outlet (mains).

On adjusting volume

Do not turn up the volume while listening to a section with very low level inputs or no audio signals. If you do, the speakers may be damaged when a peak level section is suddenly played.

On cleaning

Clean the cabinet, panel, and controls with a soft cloth slightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or solvent such as alcohol or benzine.

If you have any questions or problems concerning your system, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.

On cleaning discs

Do not use a commercially available CD/DVD cleaning disc. It may cause a malfunction.

On your TV’s color

If the speakers should cause the TV screen to have color irregularity, turn off the TV at once then turn it on after 15 to 30 minutes. If color irregularity should persist, place the speakers farther away from the set.

The nameplate is located on the bottom exterior of the unit.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Caution: This system is capable of holding a still video image or on-screen display image on your television screen indefinitely. If you leave the still video image or on-screen display image displayed on your TV for an extended period of time you risk permanent damage to your television screen.

Notes on placing speakers

• Do not set the speakers in an inclined position.

• Do not place the speakers in locations that are:

– Extremely hot or cold

– Dusty or dirty

– Very humid

– Subject to vibrations

– Subject to direct sunlight

• Use caution when placing the subwoofer, tall speakers, or speaker stands (not supplied) that are attached with the surround speakers on a specially treated (waxed, oiled, polished, etc.) floor, as staining or discoloration may result.

Notes on placing front speakers

• Don not install the speakers in a location near heat sources, or in a place subject to direct sunlight.

• Do not place any hot object on the speakers.

• When cleaning, use a soft cloth and a diluted mild detergent, then wipe and clean with a moistened cloth. Do not use undiluted detergent or any type of solvent such as alcohol or benzine.

Note

Do not catch the speaker cable insulation in the SPEAKER jack.

Tip

Connect the speaker cable after bending the speaker wire at the end of the insulation. This prevents the speaker cable from being caught in the SPEAKER jack.

To connect the surround back speaker

This system is compatible with the 6.1 surround system. When you enjoy a DVD that is compatible with the 6.1 surround system such as a DTS-ES disc, connect the surround back speaker (not supplied)

Note for connecting the speaker cords to the system

Connect the stripped ends of the cords to the terminals, taking care to avoid contact between the cords.

Make sure the cords are firmly connected to the speaker and speaker terminals.

To avoid short-circuiting the speakers

Short-circuiting of the speakers may damage the system. To prevent this, be sure to follow these precautions when connecting the speakers. Make sure the bare wire of each speaker cord does not touch another speaker jack or the bare wire of another speaker cord.

Examples of poor conditions of the speaker cord

Stripped speaker cord is touching another speaker terminal.

Stripped cords are touching each other due to excessive removal of insulation.

Front speaker

Surround speaker

After connecting all the components, speakers, and AC power cord (mains lead), output a test tone to

check that all the speakers are connected correctly. For details on outputting a test tone, see page 77.

If no sound is heard from a speaker while outputting a test tone, or a test tone is output from a speaker other than the one currently displayed in the front panel display, the speaker may be short-circuited. If this happens, check the speaker connection again.

Notes

• Be sure to match the speaker cord to the appropriate terminal on the components:

3

to

3

, and

#

to

#

. If the cords are reversed, the sound will lack bass and may be distorted.

• If you connect the speaker cord incorrectly or turn up the volume in a state of a short circuit, “PROTECT” appears in the front panel display and the system enters standby mode. In this case, disconnect and then reconnect the AC power cord (mains lead) from the wall outlet (mains), and then turn the system on.

Notes

• Make connections securely to prevent unwanted noise.

• Refer to the instructions supplied with the TV.

• The system cannot output component video signals.

• The system cannot output an audio signal to the connected TV. Only the audio signal of the TV is output from the system speakers.

Tips

• When you want to output the TV sound or stereo sound of a 2 channel source from the 6 speakers, select any sound

field other than “AUTO FORMAT DIRECT AUTO” or “2CH STEREO” (page 46).

• If a distortion occurs during playback of the component that is connected to the VIDEO AUDIO IN jacks, connect the component to the SAT AUDIO IN jacks.

If you connect a digital satellite receiver with an OPTICAL OUT jack

The digital satellite receiver can be connected to the SAT OPTICAL DIGITAL IN jack instead of the

SAT AUDIO IN (L/R) jacks of the system.

Speaker Setup

Positioning the speakers

For the best possible surround sound, all the speakers other than the subwoofer should be the same distance from the listening position ( A ).

However, this system allows you to place the center speaker up to 1.6 meters closer ( B ) and the surround speakers up to 4.6 meters closer

( C ) to the listening position.

The front speakers can be placed from 1.0 to

7.0 meters ( A ) from the listening position.

Place speakers as illustrated below

Notes

• Do not place the center and surround speakers farther away from the listening position than the front speakers.

• When you connect an optional surround back speaker, place the surround back speaker behind the listening position (place ( D ) as illustrated above). In this case, set [SURROUND BACK] to [YES] in the

[SIZE] setting (page 75) to output sound from the

surround back speaker.

About magnetically shielded speakers (to prevent color irregularity occurring on the TV screen)

The subwoofer in this system is magnetically shielded to prevent magnetic leakage. However, some leakage may occur, as a high-strength magnet is employed. If the subwoofer is used with a CRT-based TV or projector, install the subwoofer at least 0.3 meter from the TV set. If it is installed too close, color irregularity may occur on the screen. If color irregularity occurs, turn off the TV set once, then turn it on after 15 to 30 minutes. If color irregularity occurs again, place the subwoofer farther away from the TV set. If color irregularity still occurs after performing the above, make sure that no magnetic object is placed near the subwoofer.

Color irregularity may occur as a result of interaction between the subwoofer and the magnetic object.

Examples of possible sources of magnetic interference include: magnetic latches on a TV stand, etc., healthcare devices, toys, etc.

Specifying the speaker parameters

To obtain the best possible surround sound, first specify the distance of the speakers from your listening position, then set the level and balance.

Use the test tone to adjust the speaker level and balance to the same level.

Select [SPEAKER SETUP] in the setup display.

For details, see “Settings for the Speakers”

Enjoying Surround Sound

You can take advantage of surround sound simply by selecting one of system’s preprogrammed sound fields. They bring the exciting and powerful sound of movie theaters into your home.

To select sound field, press AUTO FORMAT

DIRECT or MODE on the remote repeatedly until the sound field you want appears in the front panel display.

Tip

When you want to output the TV sound or stereo sound of a 2 channel source from the 6 speakers of the system, select a sound field other than “AUTO FORMAT

DIRECT AUTO” or “2 CHANNEL STEREO”.

Automatic decoding of the audio input signal (AUTO

FORMAT DIRECT AUTO)

The auto decoding function automatically detects the type of audio signal being input

(Dolby Digital, DTS, or standard 2 channel stereo) and performs the proper decoding if necessary. This mode presents the sound as it was recorded/encoded, without adding any effects (e.g. reverberation).

However, if there are no low frequency signals

(Dolby Digital LFE, etc.), it will generate a low frequency signal for output to the subwoofer.

About DCS (Digital Cinema Sound)

In collaboration with Sony Pictures

Entertainment, Sony measured the sound environment of their studios and integrated the data of the measurement and Sony’s own DSP

(Digital Signal Processor) technology to develop “Digital Cinema Sound.” “Digital

Cinema Sound” simulates in a home theater an ideal movie theater sound environment based on the preference of the movie director.

C. ST. EX C (Cinema Studio EX C)

Reproduces the sound characteristics of the

Sony Pictures Entertainment scoring stage. This mode is ideal for watching musicals or classic films where music is featured in the soundtrack.

About Cinema Studio EX

Cinema Studio EX is ideal for enjoying the movie software encoded with multi channel format, such as the Dolby Digital DVD. This mode reproduces the sound characteristics of

Sony Pictures Entertainment’s studios.

Cinema Studio EX consists of the following three elements.

• Virtual Multi Dimension

Creates 5 sets of virtual speakers surrounding the listener from a single pair of actual surround speakers.

• Screen Depth Matching

In a movie theater, sound seems to come from inside the image reflected on the movie screen.

This element creates the same sensation in your listening room by shifting the sound of the front speakers “into” the screen.

• Cinema Studio Reverberation

Reproduces the reverberations peculiar to a movie theater. Cinema Studio EX is the integrated mode which operates these elements simultaneously.

Notes

• The virtual speaker effect may cause increased noise in the playback signal.

• When listening with sound fields that employ virtual speakers, you will not be able to hear any sound coming directly from the surround speakers.

• This system is not compatible with the DTS 96/24 decoding function. When you play the DTS 96/24 disc, the system plays it as a normal disc.

Tips

• When you want to output the TV sound or stereo sound of a 2 channel source from the 6 or 7 speakers, select any sound field other than “AUTO FORMAT

DIRECT AUTO” or “2CH STEREO.”

• The system memorizes the last sound field selected for each function mode.

Whenever you select a function such as DVD or

TUNER, the sound field that was last applied to function is automatically applied again. For example, if you listen to DVD with HALL as the sound field, then change to another function, and then return to

DVD, HALL will be applied again. With the tuner, sound fields are memorized separately for all preset stations.

System (RDS)

What is the Radio Data

System?

The Radio Data System (RDS) is a broadcasting service that allows radio stations to send additional information along with the regular program signal. This tuner offers convenient

RDS features, such as station name display.

RDS is available only for FM stations.*

Note

RDS may not work properly if the station you are tuned to is not transmitting the RDS signal properly, or if the signal strength is weak.

* Not all FM stations provide RDS service, nor do they provide the same type of services. If you are not familiar with the RDS system, check with your local radio stations for details on RDS services in your area.

Receiving RDS broadcasts

Simply select a station from the FM band.

When you tune in a station that provides RDS services, the station name* appears in the

TUNER information.

* If an RDS broadcast is not received, the station name may not appear in the display.

Glossary

Album

Section of a music piece or an image on a data

CD containing MP3 audio tracks or JPEG files.

Chapter

Subdivision of a title on a DVD. A title is composed of several chapters.

Digital Cinema Sound (DCS)

This is the generic name of the surround sound produced by digital signal processing technology developed by Sony. Unlike previous surround sound fields mainly directed at the reproduction of music, Digital Cinema Sound is designed specifically for the enjoyment of movies.

Dolby Digital

This movie theater sound format is more advanced than Dolby Surround Pro Logic. In this format, the surround speakers output stereo sound with an expanded frequency range, and a subwoofer channel for deep bass is independently provided. This format is also called “5.1,” with the subwoofer channel designated as the 0.1 channel (since it functions only when a deep bass effect is needed). All six channels in this format are recorded separately for superior channel separation. Furthermore, since all the signals are processed digitally, less signal degradation occurs.

Dolby Digital EX

An enhanced compatible format of Dolby

Digital 5.1, developed by Dolby Laboratories and Lucasfilm THX, which adds an extra surround back channel, and can be used for

6.1(three surround speakers) channel playback, using matrix encoding.

Dolby Pro Logic II

Dolby Pro Logic II creates five full-bandwidth output channels from two-channel sources. This is done using an advanced, high-purity matrix surround decoder that extracts the spatial properties of the original recording without adding any new sounds or tonal colorations.

x

Movie mode

The Movie mode is for use with stereo television shows and all programs encoded in Dolby

Surround. The result is enhanced sound field directionality that approaches the quality of discrete 5.1-channel sound.

x

Music mode

The Music mode is for use with any stereo music recordings, and provides a wide and deep sound space.

Dolby Surround Pro Logic

As one method of decoding Dolby Surround,

Dolby Surround Pro Logic produces four channels from two-channel sound. Compared with the former Dolby Surround system, Dolby

Surround Pro Logic reproduces left-to-right panning more naturally and localizes sounds more precisely. To take full advantage of Dolby

Surround Pro Logic, you should have one pair of surround speakers and a center speaker. The surround speakers output monaural sound.

DTS

Digital audio compression technology developed by Digital Theater Systems, Inc. This technology conforms to 5.1-channel surround.

This format comprises of stereo rear channels and a discrete subwoofer channel. DTS provides the same 5.1 discrete channels of high quality digital audio. The good channel separation is realized due to all channel data being recorded discretely and processed digitally.

DTS-ES

An enhanced compatible format of 5.1 channel, which adds an extra surround back channel.

There are two formats: Discrete 6.1, which processes the surround back signal independently, and Matrix 6.1, which processes it along with the Surround (L/R) channels.

DVD

A disc that contains up to 8 hours of moving pictures even though its diameter is the same as a CD.

The data capacity of a single-layer and singlesided DVD, at 4.7 GB (Giga Byte), is 7 times that of a CD. Furthermore, the data capacity of a dual-layer and single-sided DVD is 8.5 GB, a single-layer and double-sided DVD 9.4 GB, and a dual-layer and double-sided DVD 17 GB.

The picture data uses the MPEG 2 format, one of a worldwide standard of digital compression technology. The picture data is compressed to about 1/40 of its original size. DVD also uses variable rate coding technology that processes allocated data according to the status of the picture.

The audio data is recorded in Dolby Digital as well as in PCM, allowing you to enjoy more realistic audio presence.

Furthermore, various advanced functions such as the multi-angle, multilingual, and Parental

Control functions are provided with the DVD.

File

Section of a picture on a data CD containing

JPEG image files.

Film based software, Video based software

DVDs can be classified as Film based or Video based software. Film based DVDs contain the same images (24 frames per second) that are shown at movie theaters. Video based DVDs, such as television dramas or sit-coms, displays images at 30 frames (or 60 fields) per second.

Index (Super Audio CD, CD)/Video

Index (VIDEO CD)

A number that divides a track into sections to easily locate the point you want on a VIDEO

CD, Super Audio CD, or CD. Depending on the disc, no indexes may be recorded.

Multi-angle function

Various angles of a scene, or viewpoints of the video camera are recorded on some DVDs.

Multilingual function

Several languages for the sound or subtitles in a picture are recorded on some DVDs.

Neo:6

Developed by Digital Theater Systems, Inc., applies a conventional 2-channel or Dolby

Digital source signal to a high-precision, digital matrix decoder to achieve 6.1 channel surround playback.

CINEMA mode allows for more separation of channels to enhance the 6.1 channel effect, and is best suited for movies.

MUSIC mode allows the front L and R channels to go unprocessed for optimum stereo, with the addition of the surround components adding a special quality to the sound.

Parental Control

A function of the DVD to limit playback of the disc by the age of the users according to the limitation level in each country. The limitation varies from disc to disc; when it is activated, playback is completely prohibited, violent scenes are skipped or replaced with other scenes and so on.

Playback Control (PBC)

Signals encoded on VIDEO CDs (Version 2.0) to control playback.

By using menu screens recorded on VIDEO

CDs with PBC functions, you can enjoy playing simple interactive programs, programs with search functions, and so on.

Region Code

This system is used to protect copyrights. A region number is allocated on each DVD system or DVD disc according to the sales region. Each region code is shown on the system as well as on the disc packaging. The system can play the discs that match its region code. The system can also play discs with the “

ALL

” mark. Even when the region code is not shown on the DVD, the region limit may still be activated.

Scene

On a VIDEO CD with PBC (playback control) functions, the menu screens, moving pictures and still pictures are divided into sections called

“scenes.”

Super Audio CD

A Super Audio CD disc can reproduce sounds that are extremely faithful to the original sound by use of DSD (Direct Stream Digital) technology. This technology utilizes a sampling frequency of 2.8224 MHz, which is 64 times that of a conventional CD, and 1-bit quantization that enables the disc to hold 4 times the amount of information that a standard PCM format CD can hold. Super Audio CDs are divided into the following types.

• Super Audio CD (single layer disc)

This disc consists of a single HD layer*.

* High density signal layer for the Super Audio CD

HD (high density) layer

• Super Audio CD (dual layer disc)

This disc consists of dual HD layers and is capable of extended play over long periods.

Also, as the dual layer disc consists of dual HD layers on one side only, you do not have to turn the disc over during playback.

HD layer

• Super Audio CD + CD (Hybrid disc)

This disc consists of an HD layer and a CD layer. Also, as the dual layers are on one side only, you do not have to turn the disc over during playback. You can play this CD layer using a conventional CD player.

• 2 channel + Multi-channel Super Audio CD

This disc consists of a 2 channel playback area and a multi-channel playback area.

Title

The longest section of a picture or music feature on a DVD, movie, etc., in video software, or the entire album in audio software.

Track

Section of a picture or a music piece on a Super

Audio CD, CD, VIDEO CD or MP3. An album is composed of several tracks (MP3 only).

VIDEO CD

A compact disc that contains moving pictures.

The picture data uses the MPEG 1 format, one of a worldwide standard of digital compression technology. The picture data is compressed to about 1/140 of its original size. Consequently, a

12 cm VIDEO CD can contain up to 74 minutes of moving pictures.

VIDEO CDs also contain compact audio data.

Sounds outside the range of human hearing are compressed while sounds we can hear are not compressed. VIDEO CDs can hold 6 times the audio information of conventional audio CDs.

There are 2 versions of VIDEO CDs.

• Version 1.1: You can play only moving pictures and sounds.

• Version 2.0: You can play high-resolution still pictures and enjoy PBC functions.

This system conforms to both versions.
