Precautions
On safety
• Caution – The use of optical instruments
with this product will increase eye hazard.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into
the cabinet, unplug the player and have it
checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
• Do not put any foreign objects in the DC IN
10.5 V (external power input) jack.
On power sources
• Use only the supplied AC power adaptor.
Do not use any other AC power adaptor. It
may cause a malfunction.
Polarity of the plug
• If the AC power adaptor causes interference
to the radio reception, move it away from
the radio.
• Do not touch the AC power adaptor with
wet hands.
• The player is not disconnected from the AC
power source as long as it is connected to
the wall outlet, even if the player itself has
been turned off.
• If you are not going to use the player for a
long time, be sure to disconnect the player
from the wall outlet. To disconnect the AC
power cord, grasp the plug itself; never pull
the cord.
• Should the AC power cord need to be
changed, have it done at a qualified service
shop only.
• Use a commercially available AC plug
adaptor, if necessary, depending on the
design of the wall outlet.
Wall outlet
On placement
• Place the player in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the
player.
• Do not place the player and the AC power
adaptor on a soft surface such as a rug.
• Do not place the player and the AC power
adaptor in a location near heat sources, or in
a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive
dust, or mechanical shock.
• Do not put any object on top of the player.
The player may be damaged.
On operation
• If the player 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 player. Should this occur,
the player may not operate properly. In this
case, remove the disc and leave the player
turned on for about half an hour until the
moisture evaporates.
• Do not insert a disc with non-standard
shape (e.g., card, heart) into the player. The
disc may not be ejected and cause a
malfunction.
• When you move the player, take out any
discs. If you don’t, the disc may be
damaged.
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 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 player, please consult your
nearest Sony dealer.

Uses sound imaging to create virtual rear
speakers from the sound of the front speakers
(L, R) without using actual rear speakers. The
virtual speakers are reproduced as shown in
the illustration below. The sound imaging
effect is distinct and clearly reproduces each
aural element of the audio track.
This mode is effective when the distance
between the front L and R speakers is short,
such as with built-in speakers on a stereo TV.
TV
TVS WIDE
Uses sound imaging to create virtual rear
speakers from the sound of the front speakers
(L, R) without using actual rear speakers. The
virtual speakers are reproduced as shown in
the illustration below. This gives the sound
an expanded effect that fills the area
surrounding the listener.
This mode is effective when the distance
between the front L and R speakers is short,
such as with built-in speakers on a stereo TV.
Sound Adjustments
When you connect a stereo TV or 2 front
speakers, TV Virtual Surround lets you enjoy
surround sound effects by using sound
imaging to create virtual rear speakers from
the sound of the front speakers (L: left, R:
right) without using actual rear speakers.
This function is designed to work with the
AUDIO OUT L/R jacks. Note that if you
select one of the TVS settings while playing
a DVD, the player does not output the Dolby
Digital signals from the DIGITAL OUT

surround sound effects of “TVS WIDE.”
TVS STANDARD
Uses sound imaging to create virtual rear
speakers from the sound of the front speakers
(L, R) without using actual rear speakers. The

Notes
• When you select an effect, the sound cuts off for a
moment.
• When the playing signal does not contain a signal for
the rear speakers (page 52), the surround effects may
be difficult to hear.
• When you select one of the TVS modes, turn off the
surround setting of the connected TV or amplifier
(receiver).
• Make sure that your listening position is between
and at an equal distance from your speakers, and that
the speakers are located in similar surroundings.
Otherwise, the TVS effect may be hard to discern.

Glossary
Chapter (page 10)
Sections of a picture or a music feature that
are smaller than titles. A title is composed of
several chapters. Depending on the disc, no
chapters may be recorded.
Dolby Digital (page 22, 73)
Digital audio compression technology
developed by Dolby Laboratories. This
technology conforms to 5.1-channel
surround sound. The rear channel is stereo
and there is a discrete subwoofer channel in
this format. Dolby Digital provides the same
5.1 discrete channels of high quality digital
audio found in Dolby Digital cinema audio
systems. Good channel separation is realized
because all of the channel data are recorded
discretely and little deterioration is realized
because all channel data processing is digital.
Dolby Surround (Pro Logic) (page 71)
DTS (page 22, 73)
Digital audio compression technology that
Digital Theater Systems, Inc. developed.
This technology conforms to 5.1-channel
surround sound. The rear channel is stereo
and there is a discrete subwoofer channel in
this format. DTS provides the same 5.1
discrete channels of high quality digital
audio.
Good channel separation is realized because
all of the channel data is recorded discretely
and little deterioration is realized because all
channel data processing is digital.
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
single-sided DVD is 4.7 GB (Giga Byte),
which is 7 times that of a CD. The data
capacity of a double-layer and single-sided
DVD is 8.5 GB, a single-layer and doublesided DVD is 9.4 GB, and double-layer and
double-sided DVD is 17 GB.
The picture data uses the MPEG 2 format,
one of the worldwide standards of digital
compression technology. The picture data is
compressed to about 1/40 (average) of its
original size. The DVD also uses a variable
rate coding technology that changes the data
to be allocated according to the status of the
picture. Audio information is recorded in
Dolby Digital as well as in PCM, allowing
you to enjoy a more real audio presence.
Furthermore, various advanced functions
such as the multi-angle, multilingual, and
Parental Control functions are provided with
the DVD.
Index (CD)/Video Index (VIDEO CD) (page
47)
A number that divides a track into sections to
easily locate the point you want on a VIDEO
CD or CD. Depending on the disc, no index
may be recorded.
Parental Control (page 58)
A function of the DVD used to limit playback
of the disc according to the age of the user
and the limitation level in each country. The
limitation varies from disc to disc; when it is
activated, or playback is completely
prohibited, violent scenes are skipped or
replaced with other scenes, etc.
continued
Additional Information
Audio signal processing technology that
Dolby Laboratories developed for surround
sound. When the input signal contains a
surround component, the Pro Logic process
outputs the front, center, and rear signals. The
rear channel is monaural.
DVD (page 7)
77
Region Code (page 7)
This system is used to protect copyrights. A
region number is allocated on each DVD
player or DVD disc according to the sales
region. Each region code is shown on the
player as well as on the disc packaging. The
player can play the discs that match its region
code. The player can also play discs with the
ALL mark. Even when the region code is not
shown on the DVD, the region limit may still
be activated.
Scene (page 10)
On a VIDEO CD with PBC (playback
control) functions, the menu screens, moving
pictures and still pictures are divided into
sections called “scenes.”
Title (page 10)
The longest section of a picture or music
feature on a DVD, movie, etc., in video
software, or the entire album in audio
software.
Track (page 10)
Sections of a picture or a music feature on a
VIDEO CD or CD (the length of a song).
TV Virtual Surround (TVS) (page 53)
Technology from Sony developed to produce
surround sound for home use using just a
stereo TV. Designed to work with the sound
characteristics of your TV, this technology
brings the excitement of surround sound to
your home using nothing more than your
stereo TV’s internal speakers. Furthermore,
various TVS modes are available. For
example, “TVS WIDE” uses just two
speakers to create a virtual sound
environment that makes you feel like you are
surrounded by multiple speakers.
