Precautions
On safety
• Caution – The use of optical instruments with this
product will increase eye hazard.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the cabinet,
unplug the system and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it any further.
On power sources
• The system is not disconnected from the AC power
source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall
outlet, even if the system itself has been turned off.
• If you are not going to use the system for a long time, be
sure to disconnect the system from the wall outlet. To
disconnect the AC power cord (mains lead), grasp the
plug itself; never pull the cord.
• Should the AC power cord (mains lead) need to be
changed, have it done at a qualified service shop only.
On placement
• Place the system in a location with adequate ventilation
to prevent heat build-up in the system.
• Do not place the system on a soft surface such as a rug
that might block the ventilation holes on the bottom.
• Do not place the system in a location near heat sources,
or in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust or
mechanical shock.
• Do not place anything on top of the cabinet that might
block the ventilation holes and cause malfunctions.
• Place the system on a horizontal surface.
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.
On adjusting volume
• Do not turn up the volume while listening to a portion
with very low level inputs or no audio signals. If you
do, the speakers may be damaged when a peak level
portion is 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.
• Clean the disc tray if it becomes dusty.
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 further away from the set.
6
On transporting the system
• Follow the instructions below before transporting the
system to prevent any damage to the DVD player if
dropped accidentally:
1 Remove all discs from the disc trays.
If you leave any discs inside the disc trays, you may
not be able to remove them later.
2 Press A of DISC 1 and place the dummy disc on the
disc tray. Do not press A of DISC 1 again to close
the disc tray.
3 Press ?/1.
The disc tray closes automatically, and the system
turns off.
4 After the front panel display turns off, unplug the AC
power cord.
5 Remove both of the front speakers from the main
units.
Front speaker
Main unit
• Check that the power of all the components is off and
all operations are completed before transporting the
system.
If you have any questions or problems concerning your
system, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
Caution: The enclosed 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.
Projection televisions are very susceptible.
Notes on Discs
On handling discs
• To keep the disc clean, handle the disc by its edge. Do
not touch the surface.
• Do not stick paper or tape on the disc.
If there is glue (or a similar substance) on the disc,
remove the glue completely before using the disc.
Note on DVD 5-disc changer
with EXCHANGE
mechanism
You can change other discs while playing a disc
(EXCHANGE mechanism).
Disc changer system
Stocker
• Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or heat sources
such as hot air ducts, or leave it in a car parked in direct
sunlight as there can be considerable rise in temperature
inside the car.
• After playing, store the disc in its case.
• Do not use discs fitted with a protection ring. This may
cause the system to malfunction.

On cleaning
• Before playing, clean the disc with a cleaning cloth.
Wipe the disc from the center out.
• Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner,
commercially available cleaners or anti-static spray
intended for vinyl LPs.
The disc changer consists of a playing unit, trays
which hold the discs, and a stocker which transports
the discs on their trays to the disc slot and the
playing unit.
For example, if you press DISC 3, the stocker moves
until the DISC 3 tray comes to the position of the
playing unit and then moves the DISC 3 tray over the
playing unit. If you press A of DISC 4 while playing
DISC 3, the stocker leaves the DISC 3 tray over the
playing unit, moves so that the DISC 4 tray comes to
the position of the disc cover, opens the disc cover
and pushes out the DISC 4 tray (EXCHANGE
mechanism).
Note
Noise may come from the disc changer when changing
discs or turning the system on and off. However, this is just
noise produced by the operation of the internal
mechanisms and does not indicate a malfunction.

Speaker Setup
Getting Started
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 lets you to place the center speaker
up to 5 feet closer (B) and the rear speakers up to 15 feet
closer (C) to the listening position.
The front speakers can be placed from 3 to 15 feet (A)
from the listening position.
z Positioning the center and rear speakers for better surround
sound effect
For better surround sound quality, position each speaker as
shown below. Each rear speaker should be placed as its
tweeter is on the inner side.
The grille can be detached to visually verify the orientation.
The “SONY” logo on each satellite speakers can be rotated to
match the speaker’s orientation.
Rear speaker (right)
You can place the rear speakers either behind you or to
the side, depending on the shape of your room, etc.

Source sound displays
The letters (L, C, R, etc.) indicate the source sound. The boxes around the letters vary to
show how the system downmixes the source sound (based on the speaker settings).
When using music sound modes like HALL, the system adds reverberation based on
the source sound.
Although the table below shows almost all of the configurations available from multichannel surround signals, the ones marked “✩” are the most common.

Notes
• The system performs Pro Logic decoding and the display conforms to 2/0** when using the following
movie sound modes with 2/0** or STEREO PCM format signals. (C. STUDIO A, B, C, V. MULTI. D.)
• When using music sound modes like HALL with standard audio formats, like PCM, the system creates
rear signals from the front L and R signals. However, a center speaker signal is not created. In this case,
sound is output from the rear speakers, but output channel indicators for the rear speakers do not light.
24
Customizing Sound Fields
By adjusting the surround parameters of the front, rear
and center speakers, you can customize the sound fields
to suit your particular listening situations.
See the table on page 28 for the parameters available in
each sound field.
To get the most from multi-channel surround
sound
Position your speakers and do the procedures described
in “Speaker Setup” starting on page 16 before you
customize a sound field.
The level parameters let you adjust the balance and
speaker volumes of each speaker. The settings available
here are applied to all sound fields.
However, the parameters you have already adjusted in
“Speaker Setup” on page 18 need not to be adjusted again
to customize the sound fields.
Playing Discs
Once you customize a sound field, the changes are stored
in memory indefinitely (unless the system is unplugged
for about a day). You can change a customized sound
field any time by making new adjustments to the
parameters.
Adjusting the level parameters
1
Start playing a program source encoded with
multi-channel surround sound.
2
Press LEVEL.
3
Sit at your listening position and select the item to
be adjusted using the M/m buttons.
4
Adjust the volume level using the </, buttons.
The adjusted value will appear on the front panel
display. If you do not operate the remote for a few
seconds, the value turns off and is stored in the
system.
x BALANCE
You do not have to adjust here. See page 18.
x LEVEL
You do not have to adjust here. See page 18.
x LFE MIX (Low Frequency Effect mix level)
Initial setting: –4 dB
This parameter lets you attenuate the level of the LFE
(Low Frequency Effect) channel output from the
subwoofer without effecting the level of the bass
frequencies sent to the subwoofer from the front,
center, or rear channels via the Dolby Digital (AC-3)
bass redirection circuitry.
• The level can be adjusted in 1 dB step from –20 dB to
0 dB (line level). 0 dB outputs the full LFE signal at
the mix level determined by the recording engineer.
• Selecting MUTING mutes the sound of the LFE
channel from the subwoofer. However, the low
frequency sounds of the front, center, or rear
speakers are output from the subwoofer.
Continued to the next page
25
Customizing Sound Fields
Playing Discs
x dts LFE MIX
(dts Low Frequency Effect mix level)
Initial setting: 0 dB
This parameter lets you attenuate the level of the LFE
(Low Frequency Effect) channel output from the
subwoofer without effecting the level of the bass
frequencies sent to the subwoofer from the front,
center, or rear channels via the “dts” bass redirection
circuitry.
• The level can be adjusted in 1 dB step from –20 dB to
+10 dB (line level).
• Selecting MUTING mutes the sound of the LFE
channel from the subwoofer. However, the low
frequency sounds of the front, center, or rear
speakers are output from the subwoofer.
zAbout the level differences in the LFE MIX settings
The “dts LFE” level is set to +10 dB and “LFE MIX” (Dolby
Digital) is set to 0 dB. This is because there is an initial difference
of 10 dB in the overall mix between the Dolby Digital and dts
LFE channel levels. Essentially, with the “dts LFE” level set to +10
dB and the “LFE MIX (Dolby Digital)” level set to 0 dB,
approximately the same amounts of LFE channel signal are
distributed to the other audio channels in the overall mix.
x D.COMP. (Dynamic range compressor)
Initial setting: OFF
This parameter lets you compress the dynamic range
of the sound track.
This may be useful when you want to watch movies at
low volumes late at night.
• OFF reproduces the sound track with no
compression.
• 0.1~ 0.9 allow you to compress the dynamic range in
small steps to achieve the sound you desire.
• STD reproduces the sound track with the dynamic
range intended by the recording engineer.
• MAX provides a dramatic compression of the
dynamic range.
Note
Dynamic range compression is only possible with Dolby Digital
sources.
zAbout the Dynamic Range Compressor
This parameter allows you to compress the dynamic range of the
soundtrack based on the dynamic range information included in
the Dolby Digital signal. “STD” is standard compression, but
because many sources have only light compression, you may not
notice much difference when using 0.1~ 0.9.
Therefore, we recommend using the “MAX” setting. This greatly
compresses the dynamic range and allows you to view movies
late at night at low volumes. Unlike analog limiters, the levels are
predetermined and provide a very natural compression.
26
Adjusting the surround parameters
The surround parameters let you customize various
aspects of the current sound field. The settings available
here are stored individually for each sound field.
1
Start playing a program source encoded with
multi-channel surround sound.
2
Press AMP MENU repeatedly on the remote to
display <<SURROUND>> on the front panel display.
3
Sit at your listening position and select the item to
be adjusted using the M/m buttons.
4
Adjust the volume level using the </, buttons.
The adjusted value will appear on the front panel
display. If you do not operate the remote for a few
seconds, the value turns off and is stored in the
system.
x EFFECT (Effect level)
Initial setting: (depends on sound mode)
This parameter lets you adjust the “presence” of the
current surround effect.
x WALL (Wall type)
Initial setting: center
When sound is reflected off soft materials, such as a
curtain, the high frequency elements are reduced. A
hard wall is highly reflective and does not
significantly effect the frequency response of the
reflected sound. This parameter lets you control the
level of the high frequencies to alter the sonic
character of your listening environment by simulating
a softer (S) or harder (H) wall. The center position
designates a neutral wall (made of wood).
x REVB. (Reverberation)
Initial setting: center
Before sound reaches our ears, it is reflected
(reverberated) many times between the left and right
walls, ceiling, and floor. In a large room, sound takes
more time to bounce from one surface to another than
in a smaller room. This parameter lets you control the
spacing of the early reflections to simulate a sonically
longer (L) or shorter (S) room.
• The reverberation can be adjusted ±6 from S (short,
–6) to L (long, +6) in 13 steps.
• The center position (0) designates a standard room
with no adjustment.

Bit rate (page 46)
Value indicating the amount of video data compressed in
a DVD per second. The unit is Mbps (Mega bit per
second). 1 Mbps indicates that the data per second is
1,000,000 bits. The higher the bit rate is, the larger the
amount of data. However, this does not always mean that
you can get higher quality pictures.
Chapter
Sections of a picture or a music piece on a DVD that are
smaller than titles. A title is composed of several chapters.
Each chapter is assigned a chapter number enabling you
to locate the chapter you want.
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 Pro Logic Surround
As one method of decoding Dolby Surround, Dolby Pro
Logic Surround produces four channels from two-channel
sound. Compared with the former Dolby Surround
system, Dolby Pro Logic Surround reproduces left-to-right
panning more naturally and localizes sounds more
precisely. To take full advantage of Dolby Pro Logic
Surround, you should have one pair of rear speakers and
a center speaker. The rear speakers output monaural
sound.

Additional Information
Dolby Digital
This sound format for movie theaters is more advanced
than Dolby Pro Logic Surround. In this format, the rear
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”
because the subwoofer channel is counted as 0.1 channel
(since it functions only when a deep bass effect is needed).
All six channels in this format are recorded separately to
realize superior channel separation. Furthermore, since
all the signals are processed digitally, less signal
degradation occurs. The name “AC-3” comes from the
fact that it is the third audio coding method to be
developed by the Dolby Laboratories Licensing
Corporation.
Glossary
DTS
Digital audio compression technology that the Digital
Theater Systems, Inc. developed. This technology
conforms to 5.1-channel surround. The rear channel is
stereo and there is discrete subwoofer channel in this
format. DTS provides the same 5.1 discrete channels of
high quality digital audio. The good channel separation is
realized because the all channel data is recorded discrete
and processed in digital.
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 single-sided DVD,
at 4.7 GB (Giga Byte), is 7 times that of a CD.
Furthermore, the data capacity of a dual-layer and singlesided 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 the
worldwide standards of digital compression technology.
The picture data is compressed to about 1/40 of its
original size. The DVD also uses the variable rate coding
technology that changes the data to be allocated 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 real audio presence.
Furthermore, various advanced functions such as the
multi-angle, multilingual, and Parental Control functions
are provided with the DVD.
Multi-angle function (page 43)
Various angles, or viewpoints of the video camera, for a
scene are recorded on some DVDs.
Additional Information
Multilingual function (pages 15, 41, 43)
Several languages for the sound or subtitles in a picture
are recorded on some DVDs.
Parental Control (page 54)
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) (page 30)
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.
72
Title
The longest sections of a picture or a music piece on a
DVD; a movie, etc., for a picture piece on video software;
or an album, etc., for a music piece on an audio software.
Each title is assigned a title number enabling you to locate
the title you want.
Track
Sections of a picture or a music piece on a CD or VIDEO
CD. Each track is assigned a track number enabling you to
locate the track you want.
VIDEO CD
A compact disc that contains moving pictures.
The picture data uses the MPEG 1 format, one of the
worldwide standards 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
the 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.
