– With a DATA CD/DATA DVD that contains
DivX video files in addition to MP3 audio
tracks or JPEG image files, the system plays
only the DivX video files.
However, this system only plays a DATA CD of
format ISO 9660 Level 1/Level 2 or Joliet, and a
DATA DVD of Universal Disk Format (UDF).
Refer to the operating instructions supplied with
the disc drives and the recording software (not
supplied) for details on the recording format.
About playback order of data on a

Additional Information
Precautions
On power sources
• Unplug the system 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 system in a confined space where
ventilation is poor as this may cause overheating.
• Do not block the ventilation slots by putting anything
on the subwoofer. The subwoofer is equipped with a
high power amplifier. If the ventilation slots are
blocked, the subwoofer can overheat and
malfunction.
• Do not place the subwoofer on surfaces (rugs,
blankets, etc.) or near materials (curtains, draperies)
that may block the ventilation slots.
• Do not install the system 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 subwoofer in an inclined position.
It is designed to be operated in a horizontal position
only.
• Keep the control unit and discs away from
components with strong magnets, such as microwave
ovens, or large loudspeakers.
• Do not place heavy objects on the control unit and the
subwoofer.
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.
90GB
• If anything falls into the cabinet, unplug the
subwoofer and have it checked by qualified personnel
before operating it any further.
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 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).
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.

The front speakers in this system are magnetically shielded to prevent magnetic
leakage. However, some leakage may occur, as a high-strength magnet is
employed. If this happens, check the following items:
• If the speakers are used with a CRT-based TV or projector, install the speakers
at least 0.3 meters from the TV set.
• If the color irregularity persists, turn off the TV set once, then turn it on after 15
to 30 minutes.
• If howling occurs, reposition the speakers farther away from the TV set.
• Make sure that no magnetic object (magnetic latch on a TV stand, health care
device, toy, etc.) is placed near the speakers.

Glossary
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.
DTS
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.
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.
Interlace format
(Interlaced scanning)
The Interlace format is the NTSC standard
method for displaying TV images at 30 frames
per second. Each frame is scanned twice alternately between the even numbered scanning
lines and then odd numbered scanning lines, at
60 times per second.
102GB
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.
Progressive format
(sequential scanning)
In contrast to the Interlace format, the
progressive format can reproduce 50 - 60 frames
per second by reproducing all scanning lines
(525 lines for the NTSC system). The overall
picture quality increases and still images, text
and horizontal lines appear sharper. This format
is compatible with the 525 or 625 progressive
format.
