On operation
Precautions
On safety
• 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.
• Do not climb on the subwoofer, as you may fall down
and injure yourself, or system damage may result.
On power sources
• Before operating the system, 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 subwoofer.
• If you are not going to use the system for a long time,
be sure to disconnect the system from the wall outlet
(mains). To disconnect the AC power cord (mains
lead), grasp the plug itself; never pull the cord.
• AC power cord (mains lead) must be changed only at
the qualified service shop.
• The unit is not disconnected from the mains as long as
it is connected to the AC outlet, even if the unit itself
has been turned off.
Before connecting other components, be sure to turn off
and unplug the system.
If you encounter color irregularity on
a nearby TV screen
Color irregularities may be observed on certain types of
TV sets.
If color irregularity is observed...
Turn off the TV set, then turn it on again after 15 to 30
minutes.
If color irregularity is observed
again...
Place the subwoofer or the speakers further away from
the TV set.
On cleaning
Clean the system with a soft dry cloth. Do not use any
type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or solvent such
as alcohol or benzine.
If you have any question or problem concerning your
system, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.
On heat buildup
Although the system heats up during operation, this is
not a malfunction. If you continuously use this system
at a large volume, the system temperature of the back
and bottom rises considerably. To avoid burning
yourself, do not touch the system.
On placement
• Place the system in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat buildup and prolong the
life of the system.
• Do not place the system near heat sources, or in a
place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust, or
mechanical shock.
• Do not place anything at the rear of the subwoofer that
might block the ventilation holes and cause
malfunctions.
• Do not cover the grill of the subwoofer.
• Do not place the system near equipment such as a TV,
VCR, or tape deck. (If the system is being used in
combination with a TV, VCR, or tape deck, and is
placed too close to that equipment, noise may result,
and picture quality may suffer. This is especially
likely when using an indoor antenna. Therefore, we
recommend using an outdoor antenna.)
• Use caution when placing the system on surfaces that
have been specially treated (with wax, oil, polish, etc.)
as staining or discoloration of the surface may result.

Glossary
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 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.
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 channel 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 due to the all
channel data being recorded discretely and
processed in digitally.
HDMI
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)
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 (Highbandwidth Digital Contents Protection), a copy
protection technology that incorporates coding
technology for digital video signals.
64GB
A method of converting analog audio to digital
audio for easy enjoyment of digital sound.
S-AIR (Sony Audio Interactive Radio
frequency)
Recent times have seen the rapid spread of DVD
media, Digital Broadcasting, and other highquality 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 EZWRT10/EZW-RT10A/EZW-T100/EZW-T100A.
This technology transfers digital audio signals
with no compression using the 2.4 GHz band
range of ISM band (Industrial, Scientific, and
Medical band), also used by wireless LANs and
Bluetooth applications.
S-Force PRO Front Surround
Sony’s long-term involvement in surround
technology (and the vast amounts of acoustic
data accumulated as a result) has led to the
development of all-new processing method and
advanced DSP to handle this task effectively,
which we call S-Force PRO Front Surround.
Compared with previous front surround
technologies, S-Force PRO Front Surround
reproduces a more convincing sense of distance
and space, resulting in a true surround sound
experience without the need for rear speakers.
S-Master
S-Master is an all-digital amplifier technology
developed by Sony, which effectively minimizes
the occurrence of sound fragmentation and jitter,
delivering superb dialog clarity and faithful
reproduction of the original sound. The compact
amplifier section supports a higher power
efficiency and improved thermal performance.
x.v.Colour (x.v.Color)
“x.v.Colour (x.v.Color)” enables the more
faithful reproduction of various colors such as
the brilliant colors of flowers and the turquoise
blue of the southern ocean.
“x.v.Color” is a promotion name given to the
products that have the capability to realize a wide
color space based on the xvYCC specifications
and is a trademark of Sony Corporation.
xvYCC is an international standard of the
technical specifications of the extended-gamut
color space for video signals. The color gamut of
xvYCC is wider than the one of sRGB that is
used with the current television system.
