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 mains as long as it is
connected to the mains outlet,
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.
• Keep the unit and discs away from
equipment with strong magnets,
such as microwave ovens, or large
loudspeakers.
• Do not place heavy objects on the
unit.
• If the unit is brought directly from
a cold to a warm location,
moisture may condense inside the
Compact AV 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.
Precautions
On safety
Should any solid object or liquid fall into the
cabinet, unplug the receiver and have it checked
by qualified personnel before operating it any
further.
On power sources
• The unit is not disconnected from the AC power
source (mains) as long as it is connected to the
wall outlet, even if the unit itself has been
turned off.
• AC power cord must be changed only at the
qualified service shop.
On placement
• Place the receiver in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the
receiver.
• 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 ventilation slots by putting
anything on the receiver. The receiver is
equipped with a high power amplifier. If the
ventilation slots on the top surface are blocked,
the unit can overheat and malfunction.
• Do not place the receiver on a soft surface such
as a rug that might block the ventilation holes
on the bottom.
• Do not place the receiver in a location near heat
sources, or in a place subject to direct sunlight,
excessive dust, or mechanical shock.
On operation
• If the receiver 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 receiver. Should this occur, the
receiver may not operate properly. In this case,
remove the disc and leave the receiver turned on
for about half an hour until the moisture
evaporates.
• When you move the receiver, take out any discs.
If you don’t, the disc may be damaged.
• For power saving purposes, the receiver can be
completely turned off by the POWER button on
the main unit. Though the LED remains lit for a
while, the receiver is completely off.
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 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 receiver, 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 colour
If the speakers should cause the TV screen to have
colour irregularity, turn off the TV at once then
turn it on after 15 to 30 minutes. If colour
irregularity should persist, place the speakers
further away from the set.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
Caution: This receiver 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.

Getting Started
Quick Overview
This chapter presents a quick overview so you can begin enjoying your new receiver right away.
For selecting a language used in the on-screen display, refer to page 65.
For selecting the aspect ratio of the TV to be connected, refer to page 66.
Check that you have the following items:
• AM loop antenna (1)
• FM wire antenna (1)

• Remote Commander (remote) RM-SP10 (1)
• R6 (size AA) batteries (2)
Getting Started
Unpacking
15GB
Inserting Batteries into the Remote
You can control the receiver using the supplied remote. Insert two R6 (size AA) batteries by
matching the 3 and # ends on the batteries to the markings inside the compartment. When
using the remote, point it at the remote sensor on the receiver.
Notes
•
•
•
•
Do not leave the remote in an extremely hot or humid place.
Do not use a new battery with an old one.
Do not drop any foreign object into the remote casing, particularly when replacing the batteries.
Do not expose the remote sensor to direct light from the sun or lighting apparatus. Doing so may cause a
malfunction.
• If you do not use the remote for an extended period of time, remove the batteries to avoid possible damage from
battery leakage and corrosion.
Step 1: Speaker System Hookup
You can enjoy surround sound by connecting 5 speakers (front L/R speakers, centre speaker,
rear L/R speakers) and active subwoofer to the receiver. If you do not connect 5 speakers and
active subwoofer to the receiver, the receiver optimizes the surround signal depending on the
number of connected speakers. When you connect 2 speakers to the receiver, connect the
speakers to the SPEAKERS FRONT L/R jacks.
Notes
•
•
•
•
16GB
Be sure to match the speaker cord to the appropriate terminal: 3 to 3, # to #, L to L, and R to R jack.
Use the high performance speakers.
Use the same size and performance speakers for the front, centre, and rear speakers.
To obtain the best possible surround sound, specify the speaker parameters (number, distance, level, etc.) on page
23.

To avoid short-circuiting the speakers
Short-circuiting of the speakers may damage the receiver. 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 terminal 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.
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 26.
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 on 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 be distorted and will lack bass.
• If you use front speakers with low maximum input rating, adjust the volume carefully to avoid excessive output
on the speakers.

About DCS (Digital Cinema Sound)
In the 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
movie director.
SOUND
FIELD +/–
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.
About Cinema Studio EX
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 rear 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.

Sony Pictures Entertainment “Kim Novak
Theater” cinema production studio. This
mode is ideal for watching science-fiction or
action movies with lots of sound effects.

cause increased noise in the playback signal.
• When listening with sound fields that employ the
virtual speakers, you will not be able to hear any
sound coming directly from the rear speakers.

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.
Additional Information

(xx is a number)
Cause and/or Corrective
Action
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.
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.
continued
75GB
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 centre speaker.
The rear speakers output monaural sound.
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
all the channel data is recorded discrete and
processed in digital.
76GB
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.
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 an
Super Audio CD/CD or VIDEO CD.
Depending on the disc, no index may be
recorded.
Multi-angle function
Various angles, or viewpoints of the video
camera for a scene are recorded on some
DVDs.
Multilingual function
Several languages for the sound or subtitles
in a picture are recorded on some DVDs.
DVD
Parental Control
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 single-sided
DVD is 8.5 GB, a single-layer and doublesided 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.
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 programmes,
programmes with search functions, and so
on.
Region Code
VIDEO CD
This receiver 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
receiver as well as on the disc packaging.
The receiver can play the discs that match its
region code. The receiver can also play discs
with the “ ” mark. Even when the region
code is not shown on the DVD, the region
limit may still be activated.
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 receiver conforms to both versions.
ALL
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
This audio format is based upon the current
audio CD standards but includes a greater
amount of information which provides
higher quality sound. There are three types
of discs: single layer, double layer and
hybrid discs. The hybrid disc contains both
standard audio CD and Super Audio CD
information.
The longest sections of a picture or music
feature on a DVD, movie, etc., in video
software, or the entire album in 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.
