Thank you for purchasing this Sony
Compact AV System. Before
operating this system, please read
this manual thoroughly and retain it
for future reference.
Installing
• Do not install the appliance in a
confined space, such as a bookcase
or built-in cabinet.
• Allow adequate air circulation to
prevent internal heat buildup.
• 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
equipment with strong magnets,
such as microwave ovens, or large
loudspeakers.
• Do not place heavy objects on the
unit.
• If the unit is brought directly from
a cold to a warm location,
moisture may condense inside the
Compact AV System and cause
damage to the lenses. When you
first install the unit, or when you
move it from a cold to a warm
location, wait for about 30 minutes
before operating the unit.
3US
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 system and have it checked
by qualified personnel before operating it any
further.
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 on the top surface are blocked, the unit can
overheat and malfunction.
• Do not place the system on a soft surface such
as a rug that might block the ventilation holes
on the bottom.
• Do not place the system in a location near heat
sources, or in a place subject to direct sunlight,
excessive dust, or mechanical shock.
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 system. 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 discs.
If you don’t, the disc may be damaged.
• For power saving purposes, the system can be
completely turned off by the POWER button on
the main unit. Though the LED remains lit for a
while, the system is completely off.
4US
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 system, please consult your nearest Sony
dealer.
On cleaning discs
Do not use a commercially available CD/DVD
cleaning disc. It may cause a malfunction.
On your TV’s color
If the speakers should cause the TV screen to have
color irregularity, turn off the TV at once then
turn it on after 15 to 30 minutes. If color
irregularity should persist, place the speakers
further away from the set.
The nameplate is located on the bottom exterior.
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 carrying the system
When you carry the system, use the following
procedure to protect the inner mechanism.
Remove the disc, and then press and hold the x
button on the system. After “MECHA LOCK” is
displayed on the front panel display, turn off the
system.

To avoid short-circuiting the speakers
Short-circuiting of the speakers may damage the system. To prevent this, be sure to follow these
precautions when connecting the speakers. Make sure the bare wire of each speaker cord does
not touch another speaker terminal or the bare wire of another speaker cord.
Examples of bad conditions of the speaker cord
Exposed end speaker cord
is touching another speaker
terminal.
Exposed end cords are
touching each other due to
sloppy removal of insulation.
After connecting all the components, speakers, and AC power cord (mains lead), output a test
tone to check that all the speakers are connected correctly. For details on outputting a test tone,
see page 28.
If no sound is heard from a speaker while outputting a test tone, or a test tone is output from a
speaker other than the one currently displayed on the front panel display, the speaker may be
short-circuited. If this happens, check the speaker connection again.
Note
Be sure to match the speaker cord to the appropriate terminal on the components: 3 to 3, and # to #. If the
cords are reversed, the sound will be distorted and will lack bass.

Speaker Setup
Getting Started
For the best possible surround sound, all the speakers other than the subwoofer should be the
same distance from the listening position (A).
However, this system allows you to place the center speaker up to 1.6 meters (5.0 feet) closer
(B) and the rear speakers up to 4.6 meters (15.0 feet) closer (C) to the listening position.
The front speakers can be placed from 1.0 to 15.0 meters (3.0 to 50.0 feet) (A) from the
listening position.
You can place the rear speakers either behind you or to the side, depending on the shape of your
room, etc.

About magnetically shielded speaker (to prevent color irregularity occurring on
the TV screen)
The subwoofer in this system is magnetically shielded to prevent magnetic leakage. However,
some leakage may occur, as a high-strength magnet is employed. If the subwoofer is used with
a CRT-based TV or projector, install the subwoofer at least 0.3 meters (1.0 ft) from the TV set,
etc. If it is installed too close, color irregularity may occur on the screen.
If color irregularity occurs…
Turn off the TV set once, then turn it on after 15 to 30 minutes.
If color irregularity occurs again…
Place the subwoofer farther away from the TV set.
If color irregularity still occurs after performing the above…
Make sure that no magnetic object is nearby the subwoofer. Color irregularity may occur as a
result of interaction between the subwoofer and the magnetic object.
Examples of possible sources of magnetic interference include: magnetic latches on a TV stand,
etc., healthcare devices, toys, etc.

About MP3 audio tracks
You can play MP3 audio tracks on CDROMs, CD-Rs, or CD-RWs. However, the
discs must be recorded according to
ISO9660 level 1, level 2, or Joliet format for
the system to recognize the tracks. You can
also play discs recorded in Multi Session.
See the instructions of the CD-R/RW device
or recording software (not supplied) for
details on the recording format.

Notes
• Only the letters in the alphabet and numbers can be
used for album or track names. Anything else is
displayed as “ ”.
• If the MP3 file you play back has an ID3 tag, the
ID3 tag information is displayed as a track name.
To play a Multi Session CD
The system can play Multi Session CDs
when an MP3 audio track is located in the
first session. Any subsequent MP3 audio
tracks, recorded in the later sessions, can
also be played back.
When audio tracks and images in music CD
format or video CD format are recorded in
the first session, only the first session will be
played back.
Notes
• If you put the extension “.MP3” to data not in MP3
format, the system cannot recognize the data
properly and will generate a loud noise which could
damage your speaker system.
• The system cannot play audio tracks in MP3PRO
format.

About Cinema Studio EX
Cinema Studio EX consists of the following
three elements.
• Virtual Multi Dimension
Creates 5 sets of virtual speakers
surrounding the listener from a single pair
of actual rear speakers.
• Screen Depth Matching
In a movie theater, sound seems to come
from inside the image reflected on the
movie screen. This element creates the
same sensation in your listening room by
shifting the sound of the front speakers
“into” the screen.
• Cinema Studio Reverberation
Reproduces the reverberations peculiar to a
movie theater.
Cinema Studio EX is the integrated mode
which operates these elements
simultaneously.
Notes
• The effects provided by the virtual speakers may
cause increased noise in the playback signal.
• When listening with sound fields that employ the
virtual speakers, you will not be able to hear any
sound coming directly from the rear speakers.
Selecting other sound fields
Press SOUND FIELD –/+ on the system or
SOUND FIELD on the remote repeatedly

the front panel display.

signals is played back according to the way
it was recorded. Software with 2 channel

HALL (Hall)
Reproduces the acoustics of a rectangular
concert hall.
JAZZ CLUB (Jazz Club)
Reproduces the acoustics of a jazz club.
GAME (Game)

game software.
HP. THEATER (Headphone Theater)
When you connect your headphone to the
PHONES jack of the system, the
HEADPHONE THEATER mode allows you
to experience a theater like environment
while listening through a pair of
headphones. This mode is very effective
with 5.1 ch discrete signal sources like
Dolby Digital and DTS. Selecting any
Sound Field selections (except AUTO
DECODING or 2 CH STEREO) enables the
mode.
field selected for each function mode (Sound
Field Link)
Whenever you select a function such as DVD or
TUNER, the sound field that was last applied to the
function is automatically applied again. For example,
if you listen to DVD with HALL as the sound field,
then change to another function, and then return to
DVD, HALL will be applied again. With the tuner,
sound fields are memorized separately for all preset
stations.
z You can identify the encoding format of
program software by looking at its packaging

Chapter
Sections of a picture or a music piece on a
DVD that are smaller than titles. A title is
composed of several chapters.
Digital Cinema Sound (DCS)
This is the generic name of the surround
sound produced by digital signal processing
technology developed by Sony. Unlike
previous surround sound fields mainly
directed at the reproduction of music,
Digital Cinema Sound is designed
specifically for the enjoyment of movies.
Dolby Digital
This sound format for movie theaters is
more advanced than Dolby Pro Logic
Surround. In this format, the rear 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” because the
subwoofer channel is counted as 0.1 channel
(since it functions only when a deep bass
effect is needed). All six channels in this
format are recorded separately to realize
superior channel separation. Furthermore,
since all the signals are processed digitally,
less signal degradation occurs.
Dolby Pro Logic Surround
As one method of decoding Dolby
Surround, Dolby Pro Logic Surround
produces four channels from two-channel
sound. Compared with the former Dolby
Surround system, Dolby Pro Logic Surround
reproduces left-to-right panning more
naturally and localizes sounds more
precisely.
78US
To take full advantage of Dolby Pro Logic
Surround, you should have one pair of rear
speakers and a center speaker. The rear
speakers output monaural sound.
Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II creates five fullbandwidth output channels from twochannel 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.
Movie mode
The Movie mode is for use with stereo
television shows and all programs encoded
in Dolby Surround. The result is enhanced
soundfield directionality that approaches the
quality of discrete 5.1-channel sound.
Music mode
The Music mode is for use with any stereo
music recordings, and provides a wide and
deep sound space.
DTS
DVD
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, at 4.7 GB (Giga Byte), is
7 times that of a CD. Furthermore, the data
capacity of a dual-layer and single-sided
DVD is 8.5 GB, a single-layer and doublesided DVD 9.4 GB, and a dual-layer and
double-sided DVD 17 GB.
Film based software, Video based
software
DVDs can be classified as Film based or
Video based software. Film based DVDs
contain the same images (24 frames per
second) that are shown at movie theaters.
Video based DVDs, such as television
dramas or sit-coms, displays images at 30
frames (or 60 fields) per second.
Interlace format
Interlace format shows every other line of an
image as a single “field” and is the standard
method for displaying images on television.
The even number field shows the even
numbered lines of an image, and the odd
numbered field shows the odd numbered
lines of an image.
Additional Information
Digital audio compression technology that
the Digital Theater Systems, Inc. developed.
This technology conforms to 5.1-channel
surround. The rear channel is stereo 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 because
the all channel data is recorded discrete and
processed in digital.
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 of its original size.
The DVD also uses the variable rate coding
technology that changes the data to be
allocated according to the status of the
picture.
The audio data is recorded in Dolby Digital
as well as in PCM, allowing you to enjoy
more real audio presence.
Furthermore, various advanced functions
such as the multi-angle, multilingual, and
Parental Control functions are provided with
the DVD.
Multi-angle function
Various angles, or viewpoints of the video
camera, for a scene are recorded on some
DVDs.
Multilingual function
Several languages for the sound or subtitles
in a picture are recorded on some DVDs.
Parental Control
A function of the DVD to limit playback of
continued
79US
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.
The longest sections of a picture or music
feature on a DVD, movie, etc., in video
software, or the entire album in audio
software.
Playback Control (PBC)
Track
Signals encoded on VIDEO CDs (Version
2.0) to control playback.
By using menu screens recorded on VIDEO
CDs with PBC functions, you can enjoy
playing simple interactive programs,
programs with search functions, and so on.
Sections of a picture or a music piece on a
Super Audio CD, CD, VIDEO CD or MP3.
An album is composed of several tracks
(MP3 only).
Progressive format
Compared to the Interlace format that
alternately shows every other line of an
image (field) to create one frame, the
Progressive format shows the entire image at
once as a single frame. This means that
while the Interlace format can show 30
frames (60 fields) in one second, the
Progressive format can show 60 frames in
one second. The overall picture quality
increases and still images, text, and
horizontal lines appear sharper. This player
is compatible with the 480 progressive
format.
Region Code
This system is used to protect copyrights. A
region number is allocated on each DVD
system or DVD disc according to the sales
region. Each region code is shown on the
system as well as on the disc packaging. The
system can play the discs that match its
region code. The system can also play discs
with the “ ” mark. Even when the region
code is not shown on the DVD, the region
limit may still be activated.

Title
VIDEO CD
A compact disc that contains moving
pictures.
The picture data uses the MPEG 1 format,
one of the worldwide standards of digital
compression technology. The picture data is
compressed to about 1/140 of its original
size. Consequently, a 12 cm VIDEO CD can
contain up to 74 minutes of moving pictures.
VIDEO CDs also contain compact audio
data. Sounds outside the range of human
hearing are compressed while the sounds we
can hear are not compressed. VIDEO CDs
can hold 6 times the audio information of
conventional audio CDs.
There are 2 versions of VIDEO CDs.
• Version 1.1: You can play only moving
pictures and sounds.
• Version 2.0: You can play high-resolution
still pictures and enjoy PBC functions.
This system conforms to both versions.
Super Audio CD
This audio format is based upon the current
audio CD standards but includes a greater
amount of information which provides
higher quality sound. There are three types
of discs: single layer, double layer and
hybrid discs. The hybrid disc contains both
standard audio CD and Super Audio CD
information.
