Music discs encoded with
copyright protection
technologies
This product is designed to playback discs that
conform to the Compact Disc (CD) standard.
Recently, various music discs encoded with
copyright protection technologies are marketed
by some record companies. Please be aware that
among those discs, there are some that do not
conform to the CD standard and may not be
playable by this product.
Note on DualDiscs
A DualDisc is a two sided disc product which
mates DVD recorded material on one side with
digital audio material on the other side.
However, since the audio material side does not
conform to the Compact Disc (CD) standard,
playback on this product is not guaranteed.
Cautions when playing a disc
that is recorded in Multi
Session
• This system can play Multi Session CDs
when an MP3 file (JPEG file) is contained in
the first session. Any subsequent MP3 files
(JPEG files) recorded in later sessions can
also be played back.
• If audio tracks and images in music CD
format or video CD format are recorded in the
first session, only the first session will be
played back.
• When playing a disc which contains audio
tracks in music CD format, MP3 files and
JPEG files, only the audio tracks in music CD
format can be played back.
• CD-R and CD-RW discs recorded in multisession that have not ended by “closing the
session” are not supported.
• With CD-ROMs/CD-Rs/CD-RWs that
contain DivX files in addition to MP3 files or
JPEG files, the system plays only the DivX
files.

To change the type of signal
output from the system
— Progressive
Progressive is the method for displaying TV
images which reduces flickering, and sharpens
the image. To display using this method, you
need to connect to a TV that accepts progressive
signals.
1
DVD software can be divided into 2 types: filmbased software and video-based software.
Video-based software is derived from TV, such
as dramas and sit-coms, and displays images at
30 frames/60 fields per second. Film-based
software is derived from film and displays
images at 24 frames per second. Some DVD
software contains both video and film.
In order for these images to appear natural on
your screen when output in progressive format,
the progressive signals need to be converted to
match the type of DVD software that you are
watching.
Note
When you play video-based software in progressive
signal format, sections of some types of images may
appear unnatural due to the conversion process when
output through the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks.
Even though you set to “P-SCAN,” images from the
VIDEO OUT jack are unaffected as they are output in
the interlace format.

on nearby a TV screen
Additional Information
Precautions
On operating voltage
If color irregularity is observed…
Before operating the system, check that the operating
voltage of your system is identical with the voltage of
your local power supply.
Turn off the TV set once, then turn it on after 15 to 30
minutes.
On safety
If color irregularity is observed
again…
• 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.
• Unplug the system from the wall outlet (mains) if it
is not to be used for an extended period of time. To
disconnect the power cord (mains lead), pull it out by
the plug. Never pull the cord itself.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the system,
unplug the system and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it any further.
• AC power cord must be changed only at the qualified
service shop.
On placement
• Do not place the system in an inclined position.
• Do not place the system in locations where it is;
– Extremely hot or cold
– Dusty or dirty
– Very humid
– Subject to vibrations
– Subject to direct sunlight.
• Use caution when placing the unit or speakers on
surfaces that have been specially treated (with wax,
oil, polish, etc.) as staining or discoloration of the
surface may result.
On heat buildup
• Although the system heats up during operation, this
is not a malfunction.
• Place the system in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat buildup in the system.
• If you continuously use this system at a high volume,
the cabinet temperature of the top, side and bottom
rises considerably. To avoid burning yourself, do not
touch the cabinet.
• To prevent a malfunction, do not cover the
ventilation hole for the cooling fan.
42GB
With the magnetically shielded type of speaker system,
the speakers can be installed near a TV set. However,
color irregularity may still be observed on the TV
screen depending on the type of your TV set.
Place the speakers farther 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 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 lens inside the CD/
DVD player. Should this occur, the system will not
operate properly. Remove the disc and leave the
system turned on for about an hour until the moisture
evaporates.
• When you move the system, take out any disc.
If you have any questions or problems concerning your
system, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.
Notes on discs
• 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.
• Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or heat
sources such as hot air ducts, nor leave it in a car
parked in direct sunlight.
• Do not use discs encircled with a protection ring.
This may cause a malfunction to the system.
• When using discs that have glue or similar tacky
substance on the label side of the disc or that used a
special ink when the label was printed, there is a
chance that the disc or label may become attached to
parts inside this unit. When this occurs, it may not be
possible to remove the disc, and may also cause this
unit to malfunction. Be sure to check that the label
side of the disc is not sticky before using.
The following types of disc should not be used:
– Rental or used discs with attached seals where the
glue extends beyond the seal. The perimeter of the
seal on the disc is tacky.
– Discs that have labels printed using a special ink
that feels tacky when touched.
When using a tape longer than
90 minutes
The tape is very elastic. Do not change the tape
operations such as play, stop, and fast-winding
frequently. The tape may get entangled in the tape
deck.
Cleaning the tape heads
Clean the tape heads after every 10 hours of use. Be
sure to clean the tape heads before you start an
important recording or after playing an old tape. Use a
separately sold dry-type or wet-type cleaning cassette.
For details, refer to the instructions of the cleaning
cassette.
Demagnetizing the tape heads
Demagnetize the tape heads and the metal parts that
have contact with the tape after every 20 to 30 hours of
use with a separately sold demagnetizing cassette. For
details, refer to the instructions of the demagnetizing
cassette.
Cleaning the cabinet
To save a tape permanently
To prevent a tape from being accidentally recorded
over, break off the cassette tab from side A or B as
illustrated.
Break off the
cassette tab
Additional Information
Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with a soft cloth
slightly moistened with mild detergent solution. Do not
use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or
solvent such as thinner, benzine or alcohol.
If you later want to reuse the tape for recording, cover
the broken tab with adhesive tape.
Before placing a cassette in the tape
deck
Take up any slack in the tape. Otherwise, the tape may
get entangled in the parts of the tape deck and become
damaged.

Dolby Digital
This sound format for movie theaters 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” 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.

DTS
Digital audio compression technology that the
Digital Theater Systems, Inc. developed. This
technology conforms to 5.1-channel surround.
The surround channel is stereo and there is
discrete sub woofer 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.

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
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
realistic audio presence.
Furthermore, various advanced functions such
as the multi-angle, multilingual, and Parental
Control functions are provided with the DVD.
DVD-RW
A DVD-RW is a recordable and rewritable disc
that is the same size as a DVD VIDEO. The
DVD-RW has two different modes: VR mode
and Video mode. DVD-RWs created in Video
mode have the same format as a DVD VIDEO,
while discs created in VR (Video Recording)
mode allow the contents to be programmed or
edited.
DVD+RW
A DVD+RW (plus RW) is a recordable and
rewritable disc. DVD+RWs use a recording
format that is comparable to the DVD VIDEO
format.
File
Sections of a picture or a music piece on a
DATA CD (MP3/JPEG/DivX file) or DATA
DVD (DivX file).

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 (CD) / Video Index (VIDEO CD)
A number that divides a track into sections to
easily locate the point you want on a VIDEO CD
or a CD. Depending on the disc, no indexes may
be recorded.
Interlace format
(Interlaced scanning)
Interlace format shows every other line of an
image as a single “field” and is the standard
method for displaying images on television. The
even number field shows the even numbered
lines of an image, and the odd numbered field
shows the odd numbered lines of an image.
Menu Playback
Playback using the menu screens recorded on
VIDEO CDs with PBC functions. You can enjoy
simple interactive software using the menu
playback function.
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.
Multi Session
This is a recording method that enables adding
of data using the Track-At-Once method.
Conventional CDs begin at a CD control area
called the Lead-in and end at an area called
Lead-out. A Multi Session CD is a CD having
multiple sessions, with each segment from
Lead-in to Lead-out regarded as a single session.
CD-Extra: This format records audio (audio CD
data) on the tracks in session 1 and data on the
tracks in session 2.
Parental Control
Region Code
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/region. 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.
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.
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.
This system conforms to Ver. 1.1 and Ver. 2.0 of
VIDEO CD standards. You can enjoy two kinds
of playback depending on the disc type.
VIDEO CDs without PBC functions
(Ver. 1.1 discs)
Enjoy video playback (moving pictures) as well
as music.
VIDEO CDs with PBC functions
(Ver. 2.0 discs)
Progressive format
(sequential scanning)
In contrast to the Interlace format, the
progressive format can reproduce 50 to 60
frames per second by reproducing all scanning
lines (525 lines for the NTSC system, 625 lines
for the PAL 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.
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 audio software. Each title is

VIDEO CD
A compact disc that contains moving pictures.
The picture data uses the MPEG 1 format, one of
the worldwide standards for 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.
