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
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 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.
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.
Additional Information
• 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 system. The system is equipped with a high
power amplifier. If the ventilation slots are blocked,
the system can overheat and malfunction.
• Do not place the system 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 system in an inclined position. It is
designed to be operated in a horizontal position only.
• Keep the system and discs away from components
with strong magnets, such as microwave ovens, or
large loudspeakers.
• Do not place heavy objects on the system.
• 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 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).
79US
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.
• 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.
On cleaning
• Before playing, clean the disc with a cleaning
cloth.
Wipe the disc from the center out.
• 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.
80US
Troubleshooting
If you experience any of the following difficulties while using the system, use this troubleshooting
guide to help remedy the problem before requesting repairs. Should any problem persist, consult your

Digital Cinema Auto Calibration
Digital Cinema Auto Calibration was developed
by Sony to automatically measure and adjust the
speaker settings to your listening environment in
a short period of time.
Digital Direct Twin Drive Subwoofer
Utilizing Sony proprietary S-master technology,
the Digital Direct Twin Drive Subwoofer
features two S-master Digital Amplifiers that
provide dedicated power to a strategically
located subwoofer for astounding sound
performance. Easy to set up, Digital Direct Twin
Drive Subwoofer provides a stable sound field
over a much larger listening area without having
to adjust frequency levels.
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.
Additional Information
Dolby Digital
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.
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
surround speakers and a center speaker. The
surround speakers output monaural sound.
DTS
Digital audio compression technology
developed by DTS, Inc. This technology
conforms to 5.1-channel surround. This format
is comprised of a stereo rear channel and a
discrete subwoofer channel. 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 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.
Parental Control
A function of the DVD to limit playback of the
disc by the age of users according to the
limitation level in each country. The limitation
varies from disc to disc; when it is activated,
90US
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.
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-RT10A/EZW-T100.
This technology transfers digital audio signals
with no compression using the 2.4 GHz band
range of ISM band (Industrial, Scientific, and
Medical band), also used by wireless LANs and
Bluetooth applications.
Super Audio CD
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.
x Super Audio CD types
There are two types of discs, depending on the
Super Audio CD layer and CD layer
combination.
• Super Audio CD layer: A high-density
signal layer for Super Audio CD
• CD layer1): A layer that is readable by a
conventional CD player
Single layer disc
(a disc with a single Super Audio CD layer)
Super Audio CD
layer
Hybrid disc2)
(a disc with a Super Audio CD layer and a CD layer)
CD layer3)
A Super Audio CD layer consists of the 2
channel area or the multi-channel area.
• 2 channel area: An area in which 2 channel
stereo tracks are recorded
• Multi-channel area: An area in which multichannel (up to 5.1 channels) tracks are
recorded
