If you cannot place the center speaker and surround speakers at the same distance as (

A

), place them within 7.0 meters of the listening position.

Place the surround speakers to the rear of the listening position ( B ).

The subwoofer can be placed anywhere in the room.

About wireless LAN security

Since communication via the wireless LAN function is established by radio waves, the wireless signal may be susceptible to interception. To protect wireless communication, this system supports various security functions. Be sure to correctly configure the security settings in accordance with your network environment.

No Security

Although you can easily make settings, anyone can intercept wireless communication or intrude into your wireless network, even without any sophisticated tools. Keep in mind that there is a risk of unauthorized access or interception of data.

WEP

WEP applies security to communications to prevent outsiders from intercepting communications or intruding into your wireless network. WEP is a legacy security technology that enables older devices, which do not support

TKIP/AES, to be connected.

WPA-PSK (TKIP), WPA2-PSK (TKIP)

TKIP is a security technology developed to correct for the deficiencies of WEP. TKIP assures a higher security level than WEP.

WPA-PSK (AES), WPA2-PSK (AES)

AES is a security technology that uses an advanced security method that is distinct from

WEP and TKIP.

AES assures a higher security level than WEP or

TKIP.

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.

The station name appears on the TV screen as well.

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 front panel display.

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

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.

Tip

• While receiving an RDS broadcast and pressing

DISPLAY, you can change between the station name and frequency in the front panel display.

Additional Information

Precautions

On safety

• To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not place objects filled with liquids, such as vases, on the system, or place the system near water, such as near a bathtub or shower room. 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.

• Do not touch the AC power cord (mains lead) with wet hands. Doing so may cause an electric shock.

On power sources

• Unplug the unit from the wall outlet (mains) 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.

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 system in a confined space where ventilation is poor as this may cause overheating.

• Do not block the ventilation slots by putting anything on the system. The system is equipped with a high power amplifier. If the ventilation slots are blocked, the system can overheat and malfunction.

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

• Do not install the system in a confined space, such as a bookshelf or similar unit.

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

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

• Keep the system and discs away from components with strong magnets, such as microwave ovens, or large loudspeakers.

• Do not place heavy objects on the system.

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 unit. 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 do not, the disc may be damaged.

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

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, disc/lens cleaners

• Do not use cleaning discs or disc/lens cleaners

(including wet or spray types). These may cause the apparatus to malfunction.

On replacement of parts

• In the events that this system is repaired, repaired parts may be collected for reuse or recycling purposes.

On your TV’s color

• If the speakers should cause the TV screen to have color irregularity, turn off the TV then turn it on after

15 to 30 minutes. If color irregularity should persist, place the speakers further away from the TV set.

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.

Projection televisions are especially susceptible to this.

On moving the system

• Before moving the system, make sure that there is no disc inserted, and remove the AC power cord (mains lead) from the wall outlet (mains).

Notes about the 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.

• 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 the temperature may rise considerably inside the car.

• After playing, store the disc in its case.

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.

This system can only play a standard circular disc. Using neither standard nor circular discs

(e.g., card, heart, or star shape) may cause a malfunction.

Do not use a disc that has a commercially available accessory attached, such as a label or ring.

Troubleshooting

If you experience any of the following difficulties while using the system, use this troubleshooting guide to help remedy the problem before requesting repairs. Should any problem persist, consult your nearest Sony dealer.

Note that if service personnel changes some parts during repair, these parts may be retained.

In the event of a problem with the S-AIR function, have a Sony dealer check the entire system together

(S-AIR main unit and sub unit).

Glossary

AVCHD

The AVCHD format is a high-definition digital video camera format used to record SD

(standard definition) or HD (high definition) signals of either the 1080i specification* or the

720p specification** on DVDs, using efficient data compression coding technology. The

MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format is adopted to compress video data, and the Dolby Digital or

Linear PCM system is used to compress audio data. The MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format is capable of compressing images at higher efficiency than that of the conventional image compression format. The MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format enables a high definition (HD) video signal shot on a digital video camera recorder to be recorded on DVD discs in the same way as it would be for a standard definition (SD) television signal.

* A high definition specification that utilizes 1080 effective scanning lines and the interlace format.

** A high definition specification that utilizes 720 effective scanning lines and the progressive format.

BD-J application

The BD-ROM format supports Java for interactive functions.

“BD-J” offers content providers almost unlimited functionality when creating interactive BD-ROM titles.

BD-R

BD-R (Blu-ray Disc Recordable) is a recordable, write-once Blu-ray Disc, available in the same capacities as the BD below. Since contents can be recorded and cannot be overwritten, a BD-R can be used to archive valuable data or store and distribute video material.

BD-RE

BD-RE (Blu-ray Disc Rewritable) is a recordable and rewritable Blu-ray Disc, available in the same capacities as the BD below. The re-recordable feature makes extensive editing and time-shifting applications possible.

BD-ROM

BD-ROMs (Blu-ray Disc Read-Only Memory) are commercially produced discs and are available in the same capacities as the BD below. Other than conventional movie and video contents, these discs have enhanced features such as interactive content, menu operations using pop-up menus, selection of subtitle display, and slideshow. Although a BD-ROM may contain any form of data, most BD-ROM discs will contain movies in High Definition format, for playback on Blu-ray Disc/DVD players.

Blu-ray Disc (BD)

A disc format developed for recording/playing high-definition (HD) video (for HDTV, etc.), and for storing large amounts of data. A single layer Blu-ray Disc holds up to 25 GB, and a dual-layer Blu-ray Disc holds up to 50 GB of data.

Digital Cinema Auto Calibration

(D.C.A.C)

Digital Cinema Auto Calibration was developed by Sony to automatically measure and adjust the speaker settings to your listening environment in a short period of time.

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 designed 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 Plus

Developed as an extension to Dolby Digital, the audio coding technology supports 7.1 multichannel surround sound.

Dolby Pro Logic II

Dolby Pro Logic II creates five full-bandwidth output channels from 2 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.

Dolby Surround Pro Logic

As one method of decoding Dolby Surround,

Dolby Surround Pro Logic produces four channels from 2 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.

Dolby TrueHD

Dolby TrueHD is a lossless coding technology that supports up to 8 channels of multi-channel surround sound for the next generation of optical discs. The reproduced sound is true to the original source bit-for-bit.

DTS

Digital audio compression technology developed by DTS, Inc. This technology conforms to 5.1-channel surround. This format includes a stereo rear channel 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 the all channel data being recorded discretely and processed in digitally.

DTS-HD High Resolution Audio

Developed as an extension to DTS Digital

Surround format. It supports a maximum sampling frequency of 96 kHz, and 7.1 multichannel surround.

DTS-HD High Resolution Audio has a maximum transmission rate of 6 Mbps, with lossy compression.

DTS-HD Master Audio

DTS-HD Master Audio has a maximum transmission rate of 24.5 Mbps, and uses lossless compression, and DTS-HD Master

Audio corresponds to a maximum sampling frequency of 192 kHz, and maximum of 7.1ch.

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia

Interface)

HDMI is an interface that supports both video and audio on a single digital connection, allowing you to enjoy high quality digital picture and sound. The HDMI specification supports HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital

Content Protection), a copy protection technology that incorporates coding technology for digital video signals.

Interlace format

(Interlaced scanning)

The Interlace format is the NTSC standard method for displaying TV images at 30 frames per second. Each frame is scanned twice - alternately between the even numbered scanning lines and then odd numbered scanning lines, at

60 times per second.

LTH (Low to High)

LTH is a recording system that supports organic pigment type BD-R.

Parental Control

A function of the BD/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.

PhotoTV HD

“PhotoTV HD” allows for highly-detailed pictures, and photo-like expression of subtle textures and colors. By connecting Sony

“PhotoTV HD” compatible devices using an

HDMI cable, a whole new world of photos can be enjoyed in breathtaking Full HD quality. For instance, the delicate texture of the human skin, flowers, sand and waves can now be displayed on a large screen in beautiful photo-like quality.

Pop-up menu

An enhanced menu operation available on BD-

ROMs. The pop-up menu appears when POP

UP/MENU is pressed during playback, and can be operated while playback is in progress.

Progressive format

(sequential scanning)

In contrast to the Interlace format, the progressive format can reproduce 50 - 60 frames per second by reproducing all scanning lines

(525 lines for the NTSC system). The overall picture quality increases and still images, text and horizontal lines appear sharper. This format is compatible with the 525 or 625 progressive format.

S-AIR

(Sony Audio Interactive Radio frequency)

Recent times have seen the rapid spread of BD/

DVD media, digital broadcasting, and other high-quality media.

To ensure that the subtle nuances of these highquality media are transmitted with no deterioration, Sony has developed a technology called “S-AIR” for the radio transmission of digital audio signals with no compression, and has incorporated this technology into the EZW-

RT10/EZW-RT10A/EZW-T100.

This technology transfers digital audio signals with no compression using the 2.4 GHz band range of ISM band (Industrial, Scientific, and

Medical band), such as wireless LANs and

Bluetooth applications.

24p True Cinema

Movies shot with a film camera consist of 24 frames per second.

Since conventional televisions (both CRT and flat panels) display frames either at 1/60 or 1/50 second intervals, the 24 frames do not appear at an even pace.

When connected to a TV with 24p capabilities, the player displays each frame at 1/24 second intervals — the same interval originally shot with the film camera, thus faithfully reproducing the original cinema image.
