System requirements
The following system environment is required
to use the network function of the receiver.
A Broadband line connection
A Broadband line connection to the Internet is
required in order to enjoy Internet content or to
use the software update function of the
receiver.
Modem
This is the device that is connected to the
broadband line to communicate with the
Internet. Some of these devices are integrated
with the router.
44US
Router
• Use a router compatible with 100 Mbps to
enjoy content on your home network.
• We recommend that you use a router
equipped with the built-in DHCP (Dynamic
Host Configuration Protocol) server.
This function automatically assigns IP
addresses on the LAN.
• The receiver does not support a network
connection with transmission speeds of
1 Gbps or greater.
LAN cable (CAT5)
• We recommend that you use this type of
cable for a wired LAN.
Some flat-type LAN cables are easily
affected by noise. We recommend that you
use normal-type cables.
• If the receiver is used in an environment in
which there is power supply noise from
electric products or in a noisy network
environment, use a shielded-type LAN
cable.
Connecting the AC power cord
(mains lead)
Connect the supplied AC power cord (mains
lead) to the AC IN terminal on the receiver
firmly, then connect the AC power cord (mains
lead) to a wall outlet.

AC IN terminal
To the wall outlet
AC power cord
(mains lead)
(supplied)
A several space is left between the plug and the
rear panel even when the power cord (mains
lead) is inserted firmly. The cord is supposed
be connected this way. This is not malfunction.
Notes
• The AC OUTLET(s) on the rear of the receiver is a
switched outlet, which supplies power to the
connected component only while the receiver is
turned on.
• If the power for zone 2 or zone 3 is turned on, the
AC OUTLET(s) supplies power to the connected
component even when the receiver (main zone) is
in standby mode.
You can also turn on the receiver using ?/1 on
the remote control.
When you turn off the receiver, press ?/1
again. “STANDBY” flashes on the display
window. Do not disconnect the AC power cord
(mains lead) while “STANDBY” is flashing.
This may cause a malfunction.
To save the power in standby
mode
Set “Control for HDMI” (page 114), “Pass
Through” (page 114), “Network Standby”
(page 116), and “RS232C Control” (page 120)
to “Off” or “Auto” (for “Pass Through” only),
and turn off the power for zone 2/zone 3.
If “Control for HDMI” (page 114), “Pass
Through” (page 114), or “Network Standby”
(page 116) is set to “On,” or the power for zone
2 or zone 3 is turned on, the lamp above ?/1
lights up in amber.
Note
The top of the receiver may become hot while the
receiver is in standby mode. This condition occurs
because current is flowing in the internal circuits of
the receiver. This is not a malfunction.
45US
Getting Started
8: Preparing the receiver
and the remote control
• Make sure that the total power consumption of the
equipment connected to the receiver’s AC
OUTLET(s) does not exceed the wattage stated on
the rear panel. Do not connect high-wattage
electrical home appliances such as electric irons,
fans, or TVs to this outlet. This may cause a
malfunction.
Inserting batteries into the
remote control
Insert two R6 (size-AA) batteries in the
RM-AAU194 remote control.
Observe the correct polarity when installing
batteries.
RM-AAU194

standby function, set it to off (deactivated).
• Depending on the characteristics of the subwoofer
you are using, the setup distance value may be
different from the actual position.
• If you perform “Speaker Settings (Auto
Calibration)” using the Easy Setup, the
measurement results will be overwritten and saved
on the currently selected position (“Pos.1” is
selected as the factory default setting).
Tips
• Depending on the position of the subwoofer, the
measurement results for polarity may vary.
However, there will be no problems even if you
continue to use the receiver with that value.
• Depending on the speakers, “Out Phase” may
appear even if there is no problem with the speaker
connection. This is caused by the speaker
specifications, and there will no problems even if
you continue to use the speakers.
When you connect two
subwoofers to the receiver
If you cannot obtain measurement results of
the “Auto Calibration” function correctly,
depending on the environment, or you want to

HD-D.C.S.
HD Digital Cinema Sound (HD-D.C.S.) is Sony’s new innovative home theater
technology using the latest acoustic and digital signal processing technologies.
It is based on the precise response measurement data of a mastering studio.
With HD-D.C.S., you are able to enjoy Blu-ray and DVD movies at home with
not only the high quality of sound, but also the best sound ambience, just as the
movie’s sound engineer intended in the mastering process.
You can select the effect type for HD-D.C.S. For details, see “About the effect
type for HD-D.C.S.” (page 63).

About the effect type for HDD.C.S.
HD-D.C.S. has three different types:
Dynamic, Theater, and Studio. Each type has
different reflection and reverberation sound
mixture levels and is optimized to match a
listener’s room uniqueness, taste and mood.
x Dynamic
Enjoying Sound Effects
The “Dynamic” setting is suitable for an
environment which is reverberant but lacks a
spacious feeling (where sound absorption is
not sufficient). This setting emphasizes the
reflection of sound and reproduces the sound
of a large, classical movie theater. Thus, the
spacious feeling of a dubbing theater is
emphasized and a unique acoustic field is
created.
x Theater
Factory default setting. The “Theater” setting
is suitable for a general living room. This
setting reproduces the reverberation of sound
just like in a 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.
x Studio
The “Studio” setting is suitable for a living
room with the appropriate sound equipment.
This setting reproduces the reverberation of
sound provided when a theatrical sound source
is remixed for a Blu-ray Disc to a volume level
suitable for home use. The level of reflection
and reverberation of sound is kept to the
minimum. However, dialogues and surround
effects are reproduced vividly.

Precautions
On safety
Should any solid object or liquid fall into the
cabinet, unplug the receiver and have it
checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
On power sources
• 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.
• 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.
• 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.
• 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.
* The top of the cabinet may become too hot to touch.
On placement
• Place the receiver in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat buildup and
prolong the life of the receiver.
128US
• 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.
On cleaning
Clean the cabinet, panel, and controls with soft
dry cloth. 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, please consult your
nearest Sony dealer.
Troubleshooting
General
The receiver is turned off
automatically.
• “Auto Standby” is set to “On” (page 119).
• The sleep timer function is working
(page 92).
• “PROTECTOR” is working (page 139).
The receiver is turned on automatically.
• “Control for HDMI” is set to “On” or

the receiver may be turned on by operating
other equipment connected to it.
No picture and no sound are output, or
the picture and sound are corrupted.
• The receiver is placed near equipment
such as a television, VCR, or tape deck.
If the receiver is being used in
combination with a television, 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).
The top of the receiver is hot.
• Phenomenon is specific to this amplifier.
This is not a malfunction. If “Control for
HDMI” or “Network Standby” is set to
“On,” or “Pass Through” is set to “On,” or
“Auto,” the power for zone 2 or zone 3 is
turned on, the top of the receiver may
become hot even while the receiver is in
standby mode. This condition occurs

“BRAVIA” Sync (Control for
HDMI)
“Control for HDMI” cannot be set to
“On.”
• Set “Zone2 Out” in the “HDMI Settings”
to “Off.”
The Control for HDMI function does not
work.
• Check the HDMI connection (page 28, 30,
32, 33).
• Make sure “Control for HDMI” is set to
“On” in the HDMI Settings menu.
• When “Zone2 Out” is set to “On,” the
Control for HDMI function does not work.
• Make sure the connected equipment is
compatible with the Control for HDMI
function.
• Check the Control for HDMI settings on
the connected equipment. Refer to the
operating instructions of the connected
equipment.

connect/disconnect the AC power cord
(mains lead), or there is a power failure,
repeat the procedures of “Preparing for the
“BRAVIA” Sync” (page 83).
• When you select “HDMI OUT B” or
“OFF,” the Control for HDMI function
does not work properly.
• If you select “HDMI OUT A” after you
have selected “HDMI OUT B” or “OFF,”
the Control for HDMI function may not
work properly for a while. This is because
the equipment connected to the HDMI
OUT A jack must re-recognize the
receiver that is equipped with the Control
for HDMI function. If the Control for
HDMI function does not work properly for
a long time, perform the steps given in
“Preparing for the “BRAVIA” Sync”
(page 83).
• The types and the number of devices
which can be controlled by the “BRAVIA”
Sync feature are restricted in the HDMI
CEC standard as follows.
– Recording equipment (Blu-ray Disc
recorder, DVD recorder, etc.): up to 3
devices
– Playback equipment (Blu-ray Disc
Player, DVD player, etc.): up to 3
devices
– Tuner-related equipment: up to 4
devices (The receiver uses one of them
for its GUI operations.)
