Overview

The receiver supports the Dolby Pro Logic II system used in creating 5.1-channel audio from twochannel sources such as television or video, and allows you to enjoy high quality digital surround sound. The receiver is also equipped with Network Media, which allows you to view photographs (still images), watch video, or play back music on a VAIO computer through the 5.1-channel speaker system and television connected to the receiver. It even allows you to access data saved on VAIO computers in remote locations by establishing network connections to the receiver in the same way you would access a DVD or other source. Furthermore, if you connect a VAIO computer capable of receiving television broadcasts to the receiver, you can watch these broadcasts on your television or control programme recording on the VAIO computer from the receiver.

Centre speaker

Front speaker (R)

Surround speaker (R)

Front speaker (L)

Subwoofer

Surround speaker (L)

Notes

• The subwoofer is not a directional device, therefore you can place it wherever you want.

• When connecting the speaker cables, make that you attach the supplied speaker plugs to the cables. Refer to the separate sheet for details.

Speaker impedance

To fully enjoy multi-channel surround sound, make sure that you connect speakers of a nominal impedance of 6

or more to the FRONT, CENTER, and SURROUND jacks of the receiver. If you are unsure of the nominal impedance of your speakers refer to their documentation. (The nominal impedance of most speakers appears on their rear.)

Tip

The LARGE and SMALL settings of each speaker determine whether the internal sound processor will cut the bass signal from that channel. When the bass is cut from a channel, the bass redirection circuitry sends the corresponding bass frequencies to the subwoofer or other LARGE speakers.

However, it is best not to cut them, if possible.

Therefore, even when using small speakers, you can set them to LARGE if you want to output the bass frequencies from that speaker. On the other hand, if you are using a large speaker, but prefer not to have bass frequencies output from that speaker, set it to

SMALL.

If the overall sound level is lower than you prefer, set all speakers to LARGE. If there is not enough bass, you can use the equaliser to boost the bass levels. To

adjust the bass, see page 46.

Step 3: Connections

Evaluating your home network

You can connect the receiver to your VAIO computer(s) using the Ethernet port of your computer(s), a router with a built-in network switch, or a network switching device.

These examples of home networks can help you determine the best connection method for the receiver and VAIO computer(s).

Optional equipment and cables may be necessary to connect your network media receiver and VAIO computer(s).

Attaching the ferrite core to the network cable

Before connecting the receiver to your network or VAIO computer, make sure that you attach the supplied ferrite core. The ferrite core is used to reduce electrical interference.

1

Open the ferrite core and place is approximately 10 to 12 cm from one end of the network cable.

2

Wrap the network cable lengthwise around the ferrite core, so that the cable runs through the groove at the centre of the core.

3

Close the ferrite core around the network cable.

Note

Make sure that the ferrite core is secure around the network cable.

10 to 12 cm

Tip

The dynamic range compressor lets you compress the dynamic range of the soundtrack based on the dynamic range information included in the Dolby Digital signal.

STD is the initial setting, but it only enacts light compression.

Therefore, we recommend using the MAX setting.

This greatly compresses the dynamic range and lets you watch movies late at night at low volumes. Unlike analogue limiters, the levels are predetermined and provide a very natural compression.

Note

Dynamic range compression is possible with Dolby

Digital sources only.

x EFCT. XXX (Effect level)

Lets you adjust the size of the current surround effect. This parameter is displayed only when

Using Network Media

Optimising Network Media

With the following settings, you can configure the VAIO computer to start automatically when you

start Network Media (page 53) or select the VAIO computer to be connected to each function that you

use (page 49).

Useful setting 1: Setting the VAIO computer normally connected

You can pre-select the VAIO computer to be connected to each function of Network Media (television, video, music, photographs). Doing so prevents you from having to make the selection each time you use Network Media. In this manual, the VAIO computer connected automatically to each function is referred to as the “VAIO computer normally connected”. Even if there is only one VAIO computer to which the receiver can be connected, you can still select the VAIO computer normally connected.

The following description uses the video function as an example. First turn on the television and select the input connected to the receiver. Start the VAIO computer that you want to set as the VAIO computer normally connected.

Precautions

Safety

Should any solid object or liquid fall onto the cabinet, unplug the receiver and have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it any further.

Power sources

• Before operating the unit, check that the operating voltage is identical to your local power supply. The operating voltage is indicated on the nameplate at the rear of the receiver.

• The unit is not disconnected from the AC power source (mains) as long as it is connected to the power outlet, even if the unit itself has been turned off.

• If you are not going to use the receiver for a prolonged period, be sure to disconnect the receiver from the power outlet. To disconnect the AC power cord, grasp the plug itself; never pull the cord.

• The AC power cord must be replaced only at a qualified servicing centre.

Heat buildup

Although the unit heats up during operation, this is not a malfunction. It is also not a malfunction for the upper left corner of the unit to heat up while the power is on.

If you continuously use this unit at a high volume, the cabinet temperature of the top, side, and bottom rises considerably. To avoid burning yourself, do not touch the cabinet.

Positioning

• Place the receiver in a location with adequate ventilation to prevent heat buildup and prolong the life of the receiver.

• Do not place the receiver near heat sources, or in a location 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.

• 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.

Operation

Before connecting other components, be sure to turn off and unplug the receiver.

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, consult your nearest Sony dealer.

Troubleshooting

If you experience any of the following difficulties while using the receiver or Network

Media, use this troubleshooting section to help you remedy the problems. Should any problem persist, consult your nearest Sony dealer.

General troubleshooting

Cannot turn on the receiver.

• Verify that the power cord is correctly connected to the power supply.

• Verify that all the cables are correctly connected

to the receiver (see pages 9–18).

• If the receiver is connected to a multi-plug adapter with a power switch, for example, make sure that the adapter is on and that the receiver power cord is correctly connected.

There is no sound no matter which component is selected.

• Check that both the receiver and all components are turned on.

• Check that you have selected the correct component on the receiver.

• Check that the headphones are not connected.

• Check that the VOLUME control is not set to

MIN.

• Check that all the speaker cables are connected correctly.

• Press the MUTING button on the remote to cancel the muting function.

• The protection circuit may be activated. Turn off the receiver, eliminate the short-circuit problem, and turn on the power again after about

20 seconds.

There is no sound from a specific component.

• Check that the component is connected correctly to the audio input jacks for that component.

• Check that the cable(s) used for the connection is

(are) fully inserted into the jacks on both the receiver and the component.

• Check that you have selected the correct component on the receiver.

There is no sound from one of the front speakers.

• Connect headphones to the PHONES jack to verify that sound is output from the headphones. If only one channel is output from the headphones, the component may not be correctly connected to the receiver. Check that all the cables are fully inserted into the jacks on both the receiver and the component. If both channels are output from the headphones, the front speaker may not be correctly connected to the receiver. Check the connection of the front speaker which is not outputting any sound.

The multi-channel surround effect of the

Dolby Digital or DTS is not obtained.

• Check that the DVD software, etc., is recorded in

Dolby Digital or DTS.

• If you connect the DVD player, etc., to the digital input jack on this system, check the audio setting

(for digital audio output) of the component.

• Check that the audio track is correctly selected on the DVD player. (Check the audio setting of the

DVD menu.)

There is no sound when performing DTS-CD playback, etc.

• Select the desired digital component, and then set

DEC. XXXX to DEC. AUTO in the SET UP menu.

There is noise when playing back CD.

Server screen (page 49). Any VAIO computer to

which you already connected appears on this screen.

• If you disconnect the amplifier power cord, all the registered VAIO computer information is lost, therefore you must connect the amplifier to the

VAIO computer. (In this situation, all the receiver settings except the IP address are reset.)

• When you connect the receiver to a VAIO computer for the first time, you cannot use

Network Media to start the VAIO computer from standby.

• In some instances, you may not be able to start some VAIO computers with Network Media If you are using a wireless LAN or other type of network card, you may also not be able to start the
