movie theater (dubbing theater). It is most
appropriate for watching content
recorded on a Blu-ray Disc when you
want the atmosphere of a movie theater.
• Studio: This setting is suitable for a
living room with the appropriate sound
equipment. It reproduces the
reverberation of sound provided when a
theatrical sound source is remixed for a

for home use. The level of reflection and
reverberation of sound is kept to the
minimum. However, dialogues and
surround effects are reproduced vividly.

• This function does not work when “Analog
Direct” is being used.
To adjust the size of each speaker
You can adjust each speaker’s (front left/
right, front left/right high, center, surround
left/right, surround back left/right) size.
1 Select the speaker on the screen for
which you want to adjust the size,
then press
.
2 Select the parameter under “Size”,
then press
.
3 Set the size of the selected speaker,
then press
.
• Large: If you connect large speakers
that will effectively reproduce bass
frequencies, select “Large”. Normally,
select “Large”.
• Small: If the sound is distorted, or you
feel a lack of surround effects when
using multi channel surround sound,
select “Small” to activate the bass
redirection circuitry and output the
bass frequencies of each channel from
the subwoofer or other “Large”
speakers.
Notes
• Distance and Size cannot be set when
headphones are connected.
• This function does not work when “Analog
Direct” is being used.
Tips
• The “Large” and “Small” settings for 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, since bass sound has a certain amount
of directionality, it is best not to cut it, 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.
• The surround back speakers will be set to the
same setting as that of the surround speakers.

Release all buttons.
The input buttons are reset to the
default settings.
• Before operating the receiver, check that
the operating voltage is identical with
your local power supply.
The operating voltage is indicated on the
nameplate on the back of the receiver.
• The unit is not disconnected from the AC
power source (mains) as long as it is
connected to the wall outlet, even if the
unit itself has been turned off.
• If you are not going to use the receiver for
a long time, be sure to disconnect the
receiver from the wall outlet. To
disconnect the AC power cord (mains
lead), grasp the plug itself; never pull the
cord.
• (USA and Canada models only)
One blade of the plug is wider than the
other for the purpose of safety and will fit
into the wall outlet only one way. If you
are unable to insert the plug fully into the
outlet, contact your dealer.
• The AC power cord (mains lead) must be
changed only at a qualified service shop.
On heat buildup
Although the receiver heats up during
operation, this is not a malfunction. If you
continuously use this receiver at a large
volume, the cabinet temperature of the top,
side and bottom rises considerably. To
avoid burning yourself, do not touch the
cabinet.

On placement
On operation
Before connecting other equipment, be sure
to turn off and unplug the receiver.
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.
On Bluetooth
communication
• Bluetooth devices should be used within
approximately 10 meters (33 feet)
(unobstructed distance) of each other.
The effective communication range may
become shorter under the following
conditions.
– When a person, metal object, wall or
other obstruction is between the
devices with a Bluetooth connection
– Locations where a wireless LAN is
installed
– Around microwave ovens that are in
use
– Locations where other electromagnetic
waves occur
• Bluetooth devices and wireless LAN
(IEEE 802.11b/g) use the same frequency
band (2.4 GHz). When using your
Bluetooth device near a device with
wireless LAN capability, electromagnetic
interference may occur. This could result
in lower data transfer rates, noise, or
inability to connect. If this happens, try
the following remedies:
– Use this receiver at least 10 meters
(33 feet) away from the wireless LAN
device.
– Turn off the power to the wireless LAN
equipment when using your Bluetooth
device within 10 meters (33 feet).
– Install this receiver and Bluetooth
device as closer to each other as
possible.
• The radio waves broadcast by this
receiver may interfere with the operation
of some medical devices. Since this
interference may result in malfunction,
always turn off the power on this receiver
and Bluetooth device in the following
locations:
– In hospitals, on trains, in airplanes, at
gas stations, and any place where
flammable gasses may be present
– Near automatic doors or fire alarms
• This receiver supports security functions
that comply with the Bluetooth
specification to ensure secure connection
during communication using Bluetooth
technology. However, this security may
be insufficient depending on the setting
contents and other factors, so always be
careful when performing communication
using Bluetooth technology.
105US
Additional Information
• 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 place 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.
• Do not place the receiver near equipment
such as a TV, VCR, or tape deck. (If the
receiver 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 (aerial).
Therefore, we recommend using an
outdoor antenna (aerial).)
• Use caution when placing the receiver on
surfaces that have been specially treated
(with wax, oil, polish, etc.) as staining or
discoloration of the surface may result.
• Sony cannot be held liable in any way for
damages or other loss resulting from
information leaks during communication
using Bluetooth technology.
• Bluetooth communication is not
necessarily guaranteed with all Bluetooth
devices that have the same profile as this
receiver.
• Bluetooth devices connected with this
receiver must comply with the Bluetooth
specification prescribed by the Bluetooth
SIG, Inc., and must be certified to
comply. However, even when a device
complies with the Bluetooth
specification, there may be cases where
the characteristics or specifications of the
Bluetooth device make it impossible to
connect, or may result in different control
methods, display or operation.
• Noise may occur or the audio may cut off
depending on the Bluetooth device
connected with this receiver, the
communications environment, or
surrounding conditions.
If you have any questions or problems
concerning your receiver, please consult
your nearest Sony dealer.
