About the Super Audio CD
Super Audio CD is a new high-quality audio
disc standard where music is recorded in the
DSD (Direct Stream Digital) format
(conventional CDs are recorded in the PCM
format). The DSD format, using a sampling
frequency 64 times higher than that of a
conventional CD, and with 1-bit quantization,
achieves both a wide frequency range and a wide
dynamic range across the audible frequency
range, and so provides music reproduction
extremely faithful to the original sound.
Types of Super Audio CDs
There are two types of discs, depending on the
SA-CD layer and CD layer combination.
• SA-CD layer: A high-density signal layer
for Super Audio CD
• CD layer*1: A layer that is readable by a
conventional CD player
2 channel area*4
Multi channel area*4
SA-CD layer
*1 You can play the CD layer on a conventional CD
player.
*2 Since both layers are on one side, it is not necessary
to turn the disc over.
*3 To select a layer, see “Selecting a Playback Area for
a Super Audio CD” (page 39).
*4 To select an area, see “Selecting a Playback Area for
a Super Audio CD” (page 39).
Region code
Single layer disc
(a disc with a single SA-CD layer)
SA-CD layer
Hybrid disc*2
(a disc with an SA-CD layer and a CD layer)
CD layer*3
Your system has a region code printed on the
back of the unit and will only play DVDs labeled
with the same region code.
DVD VIDEOs labeled ALL will also play on this
system.
If you try to play any other DVD VIDEO, the
message [Playback prohibited by area
limitations.] will appear on the TV screen.
Depending on the DVD VIDEO, no region code
indication may be given even though playing the
DVD VIDEO is prohibited by area restrictions.
SA-CD layer*3
An SA-CD layer consists of the 2 channel area
or the multi-channel area.
• 2 channel area: An area in which 2 channel
stereo tracks are recorded
• Multi-channel area: An area in which multichannel (up to 5.1 channels) tracks are
recorded

Note
• Do not set the speakers in an inclined position.
• Do not place the speakers in locations that are:
– Extremely hot or cold
– Dusty or dirty
– Very humid
– Subject to vibrations
– Subject to direct sunlight
• Use caution when placing the speakers and/or speaker stands (not supplied) that are attached with the speakers on
a specially treated (waxed, oiled, polished, etc.) floor, as staining or discoloration may result.
• When cleaning, use a soft cloth such as a cleaning cloth for glasses.
• Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder, or solvent such as alcohol or benzine.
• Do not lean or hang on the speaker, as the speaker may fall down.
To connect the speaker cords
Connect the speaker cords after bending the bare wire at the end of the insulation. This prevents the
speaker insulation from being inserted in the speaker terminal.
Note
• Do not catch the speaker cord insulation in the SPEAKER jack.
Avoiding 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 terminal or the bare wire of another speaker cord.
20GB
Examples of poor conditions of the speaker cord
Stripped cords are touching each
other due to excessive removal of
insulation.
Getting Started
Stripped speaker cord is
touching another speaker
terminal.
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 82.
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 Setup 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.
Installing the speakers on the wall

Connect the system to your TV using the SCART (EURO AV) cord.
Be sure to connect the SCART (EURO AV) cord to the EURO AV T OUTPUT (TO TV) jack on the
system.
When you connect using the SCART (EURO AV) cord, check that the TV conforms to S video or RGB
signals. If the TV conforms to S video, change the input mode of the TV to RGB signals. Refer to the
operating instructions supplied with the TV to be connected.
When connecting to a TV with the COMPONENT VIDEO IN jacks
Connect a component video cord (not supplied). To use the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks (Y, PB/
CB, PR/CR), your TV monitor must be equipped with via COMPONENT VIDEO IN jacks (Y,PB/CB,
24GB
PR/CR). If your TV accepts progressive format signals, you must use this connection and set the output
channel of the system to progressive format (page 25).

x P VIDEO (PROGRESSIVE VIDEO)
Select this setting when:
– your TV accepts progressive signals, and,
– the TV is connected to the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks, and,
– you want to fix the conversion method to PROGRESSIVE VIDEO for video-based software.
Select this if the image is not clear when you select PROGRESSIVE AUTO.
Note that the picture will not be clear or no picture will appear if you select these settings when
either of the above conditions is not met.
x INTERLACE
Select this setting when:
– your TV does not accept progressive signals, or,
– your TV is connected to jacks other than the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks (EURO AV
T OUTPUT (TO TV)).
About DVD software types and the conversion method
DVD software can be divided into 2 types: film-based 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 “PROGRESSIVE AUTO” or “PROGRESSIVE VIDEO,” images from the EURO AV T OUTPUT (TO
TV) jack are unaffected as they are output in the interlace format.
• If you set [LINE] in [SCREEN SETUP] to [RGB] (page 78), the system switches to “INTERLACE.” This will
happen even though you select “PROGRESSIVE AUTO” or “PROGRESSIVE VIDEO.”
• If you set [LINE] in [SCREEN SETUP] to [RGB] (page 78), the system outputs no component video signals.

About MP3 Audio Tracks
and JPEG Image Files
Discs that the system can
play
You can play back DATA CDs (CD-ROMs/CDRs/CD-RWs) recorded in MP3 (MPEG1 Audio
Layer 3) and JPEG format. However, the discs
must be recorded according to ISO 9660 Level
1, Level 2 or Joliet format for the system to
recognize the tracks (or files). You can also play
discs recorded in Multi Session.
See the instructions supplied with the CD-R/
CD-RW drives and the recording software (not
supplied) for details on the recording format.
About the multi-session disc
If MP3 audio tracks or JPEG image files are
recorded in the first session, the system will also
play MP3 audio tracks or JPEG image files in
other sessions. If audio tracks and images in
audio CD format or video CD format are
recorded in the first session, only the first
session will be played back.
Note
• The system may not be able to play some DATA CDs
created in the Packet Write format. In this case, you
cannot view the JPEG images recorded.
MP3 audio track or JPEG
image file that the system can
play
The system can play the MP3 audio tracks or
JPEG image files:
• which have the extension “.MP3” (MP3 audio
track) or “.JPG”/“.JPEG” (JPEG image file)

• The system will play any data with the
extension “.MP3,” “.JPG,” or “.JPEG” even if
they are not in MP3 or JPEG format. Playing
this data may generate a loud noise which
could damage your speaker system.
• The system does not conform to audio in

Precautions
On your TV’s color
• AC power cord (mains lead) must be changed only at
the qualified service shop.
• If the speakers should cause the TV screen to have
color irregularity, turn off the TV then turn it on after
15 to 30 minutes. If color irregularity should persist,
place the speakers farther away from the set.
On placement
The nameplate is located on the rear of the unit.
On power sources
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.
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.
1
Press FUNCTION repeatedly to select
“DVD.”
2
Make sure that all discs are removed from
the system.
3
Press x and "/1 simultaneously.
“MECHA LOCK” appears in the front panel
display after “STANDBY.”
4
Remove the AC power cord (mains lead)
from the wall outlet (mains).
Additional Information
• 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 are blocked,
the unit can overheat and malfunction.
• Do not place the system on a soft surface such as a rug
and do not block the ventilation holes.
• 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 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.
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.

Glossary
Album
Section of a music piece or an image on a data
CD containing MP3 audio tracks or JPEG files.
Chapter
Subdivision of a title on a DVD. A title is
composed of several chapters.
DivX®
Digital video technology created by
DivXNetworks, Inc. Videos encoded with DivX
technology are among the highest quality with a
relatively small file size.
Dolby Digital
Additional Information
This movie theater sound format for 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.
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
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 2 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 center 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 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.
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. The DVD also
uses the 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.
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
90GB
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
A JPEG image recorded on a DATA CD or a
DivX video on a DATA CD/DATA DVD.
(“File” is an exclusive definition for this
system.) A single file consists of a single image
or movie.
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.
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.
• Version 2.0: You can play high-resolution still
pictures and enjoy PBC functions.
This system conforms to both versions.
Region Code
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 discs
that match its region code. The system can also
play discs with the “ ” mark. Even when the
region code is not shown on the DVD, the region
limit may still apply.
ALL
On a VIDEO CD with PBC (playback control)
functions, the menu screens, moving pictures
and still pictures are divided into sections called
“scenes.”
Title
The longest section of a picture or music feature
on a DVD, movie, etc., in video software, or the
entire album in audio software.
Additional Information
Scene
Track
Section of a picture or a music piece on a
VIDEO CD, CD, or MP3. An album is
composed of several tracks (MP3 only).
VIDEO CD
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.
