Additional Information
Precautions
On power sources
• Unplug the unit from the wall outlet (mains) if you do
not intend to use it for an extended period of time. To
disconnect the cord, pull it out by the plug, never by
the cord.
On placement
• 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 unit on surfaces (rugs, blankets, etc.)
or near materials (curtains, draperies) that may block
the ventilation slots.
• Do not install the unit near heat sources such as
radiators, or air ducts, or in a place subject to direct
sunlight, excessive dust, mechanical vibration, or
shock.
• Do not install the unit in an inclined position. It is
designed to be operated in a horizontal position only.
• Keep the unit and discs away from components with
strong magnets, such as microwave ovens, or large
loudspeakers.
• Do not place heavy objects on the unit.
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 control unit.
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.
• If anything falls into the cabinet, unplug the unit and
have it checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
84GB
• 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.
On cleaning discs, disc/lens
cleaners
• Do not use cleaning discs or disc/lens cleaners
(including wet or spray types). These may cause
the apparatus to malfunction.
On your TV’s color
• 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 further away from the TV set.
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
Before moving the system, make sure that there is no
disc inserted, and remove the AC power cord (mains
lead) from the wall outlet (mains).
About S-AIR function
• As the S-AIR function transmits sound by radio
waves, sound may skip when radio waves are
obstructed. This is a characteristic of radio waves and
is not malfunction.
• As the S-AIR function transmits sound by radio
waves, equipment that generates electromagnetic
energy, such as a microwave oven, may interfere with
sound transmission.
• As the S-AIR function uses the radio waves that share
the same frequency as other wireless systems, such as
wireless LAN or Bluetooth, interference or poor
transmission may result. In this case, take the
following steps:
– Do not install the system near other wireless
systems.
– Do not use the system and the other wireless
systems at the same time.
• The transmission distance differs depending on the
usage environment. Find a location where
transmission between the S-AIR main unit and sub
unit is most effective, and install the S-AIR main unit
and sub unit there.
Notes about the Discs
On handling discs
• To keep the disc clean, handle the disc by its
edge. Do not touch the surface.
• Do not stick paper or tape on the disc.
On cleaning
• Before playing, clean the disc with a cleaning
cloth.
Wipe the disc from the center out.
Additional Information
• Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or
heat sources such as hot air ducts, or leave it in
a car parked in direct sunlight as the
temperature may rise considerably inside the
car.
• After playing, store the disc in its case.
• Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner,
commercially available cleaners, or anti-static
spray intended for vinyl LPs.
This system can only play back a standard
circular disc. Using neither standard nor circular
discs (e.g., card, heart, or star shape) may cause
a malfunction.
Do not use a disc that has a commercially
available accessory attached, such as a label or
ring.

Digital Cinema Auto Calibration
Digital Cinema Auto Calibration was developed
by Sony to automatically measure and adjusts
the speaker settings to your listening
environment in a short period of time.
Dolby Digital
This movie theater sound format 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.

Glossary
x Movie mode
The Movie mode is for use with stereo television
shows and all programs encoded in Dolby
Surround. The result is enhanced sound field
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
97GB
surround speakers and a center speaker. The
surround speakers output monaural sound.

Bluetooth applications.
DTS
Super Audio CD
Digital audio compression technology
developed by DTS, 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.
Super Audio CD is a new high-quality audio
disc standard where music is recorded in the
DSD (Direct Stream Digital) format
(conventional CD is 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.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia
Interface)
HDMI is an interface that supports both video
and audio on a single digital connection,
allowing you to enjoy high quality digital
picture and sound. The HDMI specification
supports HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital
Content Protection), a copy protection
technology that incorporates coding technology
for digital video signals.
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.
S-AIR
(Sony Audio Interactive Radio
frequency)
Recent times have seen the rapid spread of DVD
media, Digital Broadcasting, and other highquality media.
To ensure that the subtle nuances of these highquality media are transmitted with no
deterioration, Sony has developed a technology
called “S-AIR” for the radio transmission of
digital audio signals with no compression, and
has incorporated this technology into the EZWRT10/EZW-T100.
This technology transfers digital audio signals
with no compression using the 2.4 GHz band
range of ISM band (Industrial, Scientific, and
