3: Connecting speakers
Connect your speakers to the receiver. This receiver allows you to use a 7.1 channel system (except for
STR-DA3000ES models of area code CEL, TW) or 6.1 channel (STR-DA3000ES models of area code
CEL, TW only).
To fully enjoy theater-like multi channel surround sound requires five speakers (two front speakers, a
center speaker, and two surround speakers) and a sub woofer (5.1 channel).
You can enjoy high fidelity reproduction of DVD software recorded in the Surround EX format if you
connect one additional surround back speaker (6.1 channel) or two surround back speakers (7.1
channel. Except for STR-DA3000ES models of area code CEL, TW) (see “Selecting the surround back
decoding mode” on page 36).
Example of 7.1 channel speaker system configuration

The “LARGE” and “SMALL” settings for each
speaker determine whether or not 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 sub woofer or other “LARGE”
speakers.
However, it 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 equalizer to boost the bass levels. To
adjust the equalizer, see page 41.

1.0 meter to 7.0 meters (3 to 23 feet) in 0.1 meter
(1 foot) steps.
* For models of area code U, CA, “X feet” is
displayed.
Tip
The receiver lets you to input the speaker position in
terms of distance. However, it is not possible to set the
center speaker further than the front speakers. Also, the
center speaker cannot be set more that 1.5 meters (5
feet) closer than the front speakers.
Likewise, the surround speakers can not be set farther
away from the listening position than the front
speakers. And they can be no more than 4.5 meters (15
feet) closer.
This is because incorrect speaker placement is not
conducive to the enjoyment of surround sound.
Please note that, setting the speaker distance closer
than the actual location of the speakers will cause a
delay in the output of the sound from that speaker. In
other words, the speaker will sound like it is farther
away.
For example, setting the center speaker distance 1–2
meters (3–6 feet) closer than the actual speaker
position will create a fairly realistic sensation of being
“inside” the screen. If you cannot obtain a satisfactory
surround effect because the surround speakers are too
close, setting the surround speaker distance closer
(shorter) than the actual distance will create a larger
sound stage.
Adjusting these parameter while listening to the sound
often results in much better surround sound. Give it a
try!

Note
In this mode, the receiver automatically detects
the type of audio signal being input (Dolby
Digital, DTS, standard 2 channel stereo, etc.)
and performs the proper decoding if necessary.
This mode presents the sound as it was recorded/
encoded, without adding any surround effects.
However, when “A.F.D. 2CH SW” in the SURR
SET UP menu is set to “CREATE” and if there
are no low frequency signals (Dolby Digital
LFE, etc.) it will generate a low frequency signal
for output to the sub woofer.
No sound is output from the sub woofer in the 2CH
STEREO mode. To listen to the 2 channel stereo
sources using the front L/R speakers and a sub woofer,
select “A.F.D. AUTO” and set “A.F.D. 2CH SW” in
the SURR SET UP menu to “CREATE”.
Press A.F.D. repeatedly to select “A.F.D.

The receiver automatically detects the type of
audio signal being input and performs the proper
decoding if necessary.
Tip
In most cases, “A.F.D. AUTO” provides the most
appropriate decoding. You may want to use SURR

Tip
Surround speaker position is designed specifically for
implementation of the Cinema Studio EX modes.
For other sound fields, speaker position is not so
critical. Those sound fields were designed under the
premise that the surround speakers would be located
behind the listening position, but presentation remains
fairly consistent even with the surround speakers
positioned at a rather wide angle. However, if the
speakers are pointing toward the listener from the
immediate left and right of the listening position, the
surround effects becomes unclear unless set to “SIDE”.

Advanced Adjustments and Settings
Nevertheless, each listening environment has many
variables, like wall reflections, and you may obtain
better results using “BEHD” if your speakers are
located high above the listening position, even if they
are to the immediate left and right.
Therefore, although it may result in a setting contrary
to the above explanation, we recommend that you
playback multi channel surround encoded software and
select the setting that provides a good sense of
spaciousness and that best succeeds in forming a
cohesive space between the surround sound from the
surround speakers and the sound of the front speakers.
If you are not sure which sounds best, select “BEHD”
and then use the speaker distance parameter and
speaker level adjustments to obtain proper balance.
x VIR.SPEAKERS (Virtual speakers)
This parameter is especially for the Cinema Studio EX
modes (page 34).

CONTROL A1II Control
System
The CONTROL A1II Control System was
designed to simplify the operation of audio
systems composed of separate Sony
components. CONTROL A1II connections
provide a path for the transmission of control
signals which enable automatic operation and
control features usually associated with
integrated systems.
Currently, CONTROL A1II connections
between a Sony CD player, amplifier (receiver),
MD deck and cassette deck provide automatic
function selection.
If, however, you have a Sony CD changer with
VIDEO OUT jacks, set the command mode to
“CD 2” and connect the changer to the VIDEO
2 jacks on the amplifier (receiver).
Connections
You can connect up to 10 CONTROL A1II
compatible components in any order. However,
you can connect only one of each type of
component (i.e., 1 CD player, 1 MD deck, 1 tape
deck and 1 receiver).
(You may be able to connect more than one CD
player or MD deck, depending on the model.
Refer to the operating instructions supplied with
the respective component for details.)
Example
Note
Do not operate a 2 way remote control unit when the
CONTROL A1II jacks are connected via a PC
interface kit to a personal computer running “MD
Editor” or similar application. Also, do not operate the
connected component in a manner contrary to the
functions of the application, as this may cause the
application to operate incorrectly.
CONTROL A1II and CONTROL A1
compatibility
The CONTROL A1 control system has been updated
to the CONTROL A1II which is the standard system in
the Sony 300 disc CD changer and other recent Sony
components. Components with CONTROL A1 jacks
are compatible with components with CONTROL
A1II, and can be connected to each other. Basically,
the majority of the functions available with the
CONTROL A1 control system will be available with
the CONTROL A1II control system.
However, when making connections between
components with CONTROL A1 jacks and
components with CONTROL A1II jacks, the number
of functions that can be controlled may be limited
depending on the component. For detailed information,
refer to the operating instructions supplied with the
component(s).
If you have a Sony CD changer with a
COMMAND MODE selector
If your CD changer’s COMMAND MODE
selector can be set to CD 1, CD 2, or CD 3, be
sure to set the command mode to “CD 1” and
connect the changer to the CD jacks on the
amplifier (receiver).
Amplifier CD
(Reciever) player
MD
deck
Tape
deck
Other
components
In the CONTROL A1II control system, the
control signals flow both ways, so there is no
distinction of IN and OUT jacks. If a component
has more than one CONTROL A1II jack, you
can use either one, or connect different
components to each jack.
Some CONTROL A1 compatible components
are supplied with a connecting cord as an
accessory. In this case, use the connecting cord
for your connection.
When using a commercially available cord, use
a monaural (2P) mini-plug cord less than 2
meters long, with no resistance.
Basic Functions
The input selector on the receiver automatically
switches to the correct input when you press the
play button on one of the connected components
(Auto input selection).
The CONTROL A1II functions will operate as
long as the component you want to operate is
turned on, even if all of the other connected
components are not turned on.
Note
When recording, do not play any components other
than the recording source. It will cause the automatic
input selection to operate.
