Precautions
Safety
• If anything falls into the cabinet, unplug the unit and
have it checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
• 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.
3US
Precautions
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 ventilation slots by putting anything
on the system. The system 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 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.
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, the system can be
completely turned off by the "/1 button on the
system. Though the LED remains lit for a while, the
system 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 suddenly played.
4US
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 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 farther away from the 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
When you carry the system, use the following
procedure to protect the inner mechanism. Remove the
disc, and then press and hold the x button on the
system. After “MECHA LOCK” is displayed on the
front panel display, remove the AC power cord from a
wall outlet.

15US
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 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.
After connecting all the components, speakers, and AC power cord, output a test tone to check that all
the speakers are connected correctly. For details on outputting a test tone, see page 72.
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.
Note
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.
16US
To change the speaker cables
Detaching
Getting Started
If you want to use a different speaker cable, you can detach the plug for attachment to another cable.
Catcher
With the catcher facing down, press and hold the plug down against a flat surface and remove the cords
from plug.
Attaching
While pressing the plug down against a flat surface, insert the new speaker cords.
Note that the cord marked with a line should be attached to the minus (-) side of the plug.
Note
Be careful not to damage the surface you use (desk, etc.) when attaching/detaching the speaker cords.
Tips
• You can use any commercially sold speaker cable of gauge cord AWG #18 - AWG #24.
• Before attaching a new cable, strip off 10 mm (13/32 in.) of its insulation and twist the bare wires of both cords.

Step 4: Connecting the AC Power Cords
Before connecting the AC power cords of this system and subwoofer to a wall outlet, connect the
speakers to the system (see page 15).
22US
Speaker Setup
North American numerical equivalents:
a) 5 feet (1.5 metres)
b) 15 feet (4.5 metres)
c) 3 to 23 feet (0.9 to 6.9 metres)
Place speakers as illustrated below
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 metre (1.0 foot) from the
TV set. If it is installed too close, colour
irregularity may occur on the screen. If colour
irregularity occurs, turn off the TV set once, then
turn it on after 15 to 30 minutes. If colour
irregularity occurs again, place the subwoofer
farther away from the TV set. If colour
irregularity still occurs after performing the
above, make sure that no magnetic object is
placed near the subwoofer. Colour 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.
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 allows you to place the
centre speaker up to 1.6 metres a) closer (B)
and the surround speakers up to 4.6 metres b)
closer (C) to the listening position.
The front speakers can be placed from 1.0 to
7.0 metres c) (A) from the listening position.
About magnetically shielded
speakers (to prevent colour
irregularity occurring on the TV
screen)
Specifying the speaker
parameters
Note
Do not place the centre and surround speakers farther
away from the listening position than the front
speakers.
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 “Setting for the
Speakers” (page 71).

This movie theatre 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.
x Movie mode
The Movie mode is for use with stereo television
shows and all programs encoded in Dolby
Surround. The result is enhanced soundfield
directionality that approaches the quality of
discrete 5.1-channel sound.
x Music mode
Design and specifications are subject to change
without notice.
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 centre 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.
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

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 theatres. Video based DVDs,
such as television dramas or sit-coms, displays
images at 30 frames (or 60 fields) per second.
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.
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.
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.
Progressive format
(sequential scanning)
In contrast to the Interlace format, the
progressive format can reproduce 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 progressive format.
VIDEO CD
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.
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.
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.
