1: Installing speakers
To fully enjoy theater-like multi channel
surround sound requires five speakers (two
front speakers, a center speaker, and two
surround speakers) and a sub woofer (5.1
channel).
Example of a 5.1 channel
speaker system configuration
Installing the speakers on a flat
surface
Before you install the speakers and sub
woofer, be sure to attach the supplied foot pads
to prevent vibration or movement as shown in
the illustration below.
Installing the speakers on the
speaker stand
For greater flexibility in positioning the
speakers, use the optional WS-FV11 speaker
stand (available only in certain countries). For
details, refer to the operating instructions
supplied with the speaker stand

fasten them to the wall. Install the speakers on a
vertical and flat wall where reinforcement is
applied.
• Contact a screw shop or installer regarding the wall
material or screws to be used.

(AUTO CALIBRATION)
This receiver is equipped with D.C.A.C.
(Digital Cinema Auto Calibration)
Technology which allows you to perform
automatic calibration as follows:
• Check the connection between each speaker
and the receiver.
• Adjust the speaker level.
• Measure the distance of each speaker to your
listening position.
You can also adjust the speaker levels and
balance manually. For details, see
“8: Adjusting the speaker levels and balance
(TEST TONE)” (page 34).
• You can also fix the optimizer microphone to a
tripod (not supplied) and place the tripod at your
listening position.
• Be sure to remove any obstacles in the path
between the optimizer microphone and the
speakers.
• When you face the speaker towards the optimizer
microphone, you will get a more accurate
measurement.

Adjusting the level
(LEVEL menu)
You can use the LEVEL menu to adjust the
balance and level of each speaker. These
settings are applied to all sound fields.
Select “1-LEVEL” in the amplifier menus. For
details on adjusting the parameters, see
“Navigating through menus” (page 39) and
“Overview of the menus” (page 40).
LEVEL menu parameters
x D. RANGE (Dynamic range
compressor)
Lets you compress the dynamic range of the
sound track. This may be useful when you
want to watch movies at low volumes late at
night. Dynamic range compression is possible
with Dolby Digital sources only.
• COMP. OFF
The dynamic range is not compressed.
• COMP. STD
The dynamic range is compressed as
intended by the recording engineer.
• COMP. MAX
The dynamic range is compressed
dramatically.
x T. TONE (Test tone)
Tip
Lets you adjust the speaker levels and balance
while listening to the test tone from your
listening position. For details, see “8:
Adjusting the speaker levels and balance
(TEST TONE)” (page 34).
Dynamic range compressor lets you compress the
dynamic range of the soundtrack based on the
dynamic range information included in the Dolby
Digital signal.
“COMP. STD” is the standard setting, but it only
enacts light compression. Therefore, we recommend
using the “COMP. MAX” setting. This greatly
compresses the dynamic range and lets you view
movies late at night at low volumes. Unlike analog
limiters, the levels are predetermined and provide a
very natural compression.
x FRT BAL (Front speaker
balance)
Lets you adjust the balance between front left
and right speakers.
x CNT LVL (Center speaker level)
x SL LVL (Surround left speaker
level)
x SR LVL (Surround right speaker
level)
x SW LVL (Sub woofer level)

x CNT DIST. (Center speaker

x SR DIST. (Surround right

Lets you set the distance from your listening
position to the surround right speaker.
Surround right speaker distance should be set
from a distance equal to the front speaker
distance (A) to a distance 15 feet closer to
your listening position (D).
Tip
The receiver lets you to input the speaker position in
terms of distance. However, it is not possible to set
the center speaker further than the front speakers.
Also, the center speaker cannot be set more than 5
feet closer from the front speakers.
Likewise, the surround speakers can not be set
further away from the listening position than the
front speakers. And they can be no more than 15 feet
closer. This is because incorrect speaker placement
is not conducive to the enjoyment of surround
sound.
Please note that, setting the speaker distance closer
than the actual location of the speakers will cause a
delay in the output of the sound from that speaker. In
other words, the speaker will sound like it is further
away.
For example, setting the center speaker distance 3-6
feet closer than the actual speaker position will
create a fairly realistic sensation of being “inside”
the screen. If you cannot obtain a satisfactory
surround effect because the surround speakers are
too close, setting the surround speaker distance
closer (shorter) than the actual distance will create a
larger sound stage.
Adjusting these parameter while listening to the
sound often results in much better surround sound.
Give it a try!
Lets you set the distance from your listening
position to the center speaker. Center speaker
distance should be set from a distance equal to
the front speaker distance (A) to a distance 5
feet closer to your listening position (B).
x SL DIST. (Surround left speaker
distance)
Lets you set the distance from your listening
position to the surround left speaker. Surround
left speaker distance should be set from a

2-662-265-11 (1)
Amplifier Operations
Surround speaker position is designed specifically
for implementation of the Cinema Studio EX modes.
For other sound fields, speaker position is not so
critical.
Those sound fields were designed under the premise
that the surround speakers would be located behind
the listening position, but presentation remains fairly
consistent even with the surround speakers
positioned at a rather wide angle. However, if the
speakers are pointing toward the listener from the
immediate left and right of the listening position, the
surround effects become unclear unless set to
“SIDE/LO” or “SIDE/HI”.
Nevertheless, each listening environment has many
variables, such as wall reflections, and you may
obtain better results using “BEHD/HI” if your
speakers are located high above the listening
position, even if they are located to the immediate
left and right.
Therefore, although it may result in a setting
contrary to the above explanation, we recommend
that you playback multi channel surround encoded
software and select the setting that provides a good
sense of spaciousness and that best succeeds in
forming a cohesive space between the surround
sound from the surround speakers and the sound of
the front speakers. If you are not sure which sounds
best, select “BEHD/LO” or “BEHD/HI” and then
use the speaker distance parameter and speaker level
adjustments to obtain proper balance.

About CINEMA STUDIO EX
modes
CINEMA STUDIO EX modes are suitable for
watching motion picture DVDs (etc.), with
multi channel surround effects. You can
reproduce the sound characteristics of Sony
Pictures Entertainment’s dubbing studio in
your home.
The CINEMA STUDIO EX modes consist of
the following three elements.
• Virtual Multi Dimension
Creates 5 sets of virtual speakers from a
single pair of actual surround speakers.
• Screen Depth Matching
Creates the sensation that the sound is
coming from inside the screen like in
theaters.
• Cinema Studio Reverberation
Reproduces the type of reverberation found
in theaters.
The CINEMA STUDIO EX modes integrate
these three elements simultaneously.
Using only the front
speakers and sub woofer
(2CH STEREO)
In this mode, the receiver outputs the sound
from the front left/right speakers and the sub
woofer.
When multi channel surround formats are
input, the signals are downmixed to 2 channel
with bass frequencies being output from the
sub woofer.
When standard 2 channel stereo sources are
input, the receiver’s bass redirection circuitry
will be activated. The front channel bass
frequencies will be output from the sub
woofer.
MULTI CH
2CH

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 surround speakers.
• This function does not work in the following cases:
– MULTI CH IN is selected.
– For signals with a sampling frequency of more
than 48 kHz.

Using the Remote
Programming the remote
You can program the remote to control nonSony components by changing the code. Once
the control signals have been memorized, you
can use those components as part of your
system.
Furthermore, you can also program the remote
for Sony components that the remote is unable
to control. Note that the remote can only
control components that accept infrared
wireless control signals.

Press the numeric buttons to
enter the numeric code (or one
of the codes if more than one
code exists) corresponding to
the component and the maker
of the component you want to
control.
See the tables on page 70 for information
on the numeric code(s) corresponding to
the component and the maker of the
component (the first digit and the last two
digits of the numeric code correspond to
the category and the maker’s code
respectively).
4
Press ENTER.
Once the numeric code has been verified,
the indicator slowly flashes twice and the
remote automatically exits the
programming mode.
To cancel programming
Press RM SET UP during any step. The
remote automatically exits the programming
mode.
To activate the input after
programming
Press the programmed button to activate the
input you want.
If programming is
unsuccessful, check the
following:
• If the indicator does not light up in step 1, the
batteries are weak. Replace both batteries.
• If the indicator flashes 4 times in quick
succession while entering the numeric code,
an error has occurred. Start again from step
1.
Notes
• The indicator turns off while a valid button is
pressed.
• In step 2, if several input buttons are pressed, only
the last pressed button is valid.
• In step 2, if you press TV ?/1, only TV VOL +/– ,
TV CH +/–, TV/VIDEO and WIDE buttons are
reprogrammed.
• In step 3, if an input button is pressed, the new
input is selected and the programming procedure

The numeric codes
corresponding to the
component and the maker of
the component
Use the numeric codes in the tables below to
control non-Sony components and also Sony
components that the remote is normally unable
to control. Since the remote signal that a
component accepts differs depending on the
model and year of the component, more than
one numeric code may be assigned to a
component. If you fail to program your remote
using one of the codes, try using other codes.
Notes
• The numeric codes are based on the latest
information available for each brand. There is a
chance, however, that your component will not
respond to some or all of the codes.
• All of the input buttons on this remote may not be
available when used with your particular
component.

A standard format for transmitting video
signal information. The luminance signal Y
and chrominance signal C are combined and
transmitted together.
x Dolby Digital
Digital audio encoding/decoding technology
developed by Dolby Laboratories, Inc. It
consists of front (left/right), center, surround
(left/right) and sub woofer channels. It is a
designated audio standard for DVD-video and
also known as 5.1ch surround. Since surround
information is recorded and reproduced in
stereo, more realistic sound with fuller
presence is delivered than with Dolby
surround.
x Dolby Pro Logic II
This technology converts 2ch stereo recorded
audio into 5.1ch for playback. There is a
MOVIE mode for movies and MUSIC mode
for stereo sources such as music. Old movies
encoded in the traditional stereo format can be
enhanced with 5.1ch surround sound.

Logic)
Audio processing technology developed by
Dolby Laboratories, Inc. Center and mono
surround information is matrixed into two
stereo channels. When reproduced, audio is
decoded and output in 4ch surround sound.
This is the most common audio processing
method for DVD-video.
x DTS Digital Surround
Digital audio encoding/decoding technology
for theaters developed by Digital Theater
Systems, Inc. It compresses audio less than
Dolby Digital, delivering a higher quality
sound reproduction.
x HDMI (High-Definition
Multimedia Interface)
Technology developed by modifying the
display connecting technology, DVI (Digital

On safety
Should any solid object or liquid fall into the
cabinet, unplug the receiver and have it
checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
On power sources
• Before operating the receiver, check that the
operating voltage is identical with your local
power supply.
The operating voltage is indicated on the
nameplate on the back of the receiver.
• The unit is not disconnected from the AC
power source (mains) as long as it is
connected to the wall outlet, even if the unit
itself has been turned off.
• If you are not going to use the receiver for a
long time, be sure to disconnect the receiver
from the wall outlet. To disconnect the AC
power cord, grasp the plug itself; never pull
the cord.
• One blade of the plug is wider than the other
for the purpose of safety and will fit into the
wall outlet only one way. If you are unable to
insert the plug fully into the outlet, contact
your dealer.
• The AC power cord must be changed only at
a qualified service shop.
On heat buildup
Although the receiver heats up during
operation, this is not a malfunction. If you
continuously use this receiver at a large
volume, the cabinet temperature of the top,
side and bottom rises considerably. To avoid
burning yourself, do not touch the cabinet.

Additional Information
To convert analog audio to digital, analog data
should be quantified. This process is called
sampling, and the number of times per second
the analog data is quantified is called the
sampling frequency. A standard music CD
stores data quantified at 44,100 times per
second, which is expressed as a sampling
frequency of 44.1 kHz. Generally speaking, a
higher sampling frequency means better sound
quality.

masterpage: Left
US01COV_HT-7000DH-U.book Page 74 Wednesday, January 25, 2006 3:30 PM
On placement
• Place the receiver in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat buildup and
prolong the life of the receiver.
• Do not place the receiver near heat sources,
or in a place subject to direct sunlight,
excessive dust, or mechanical shock.
• Do not place anything on top of the cabinet
that might block the ventilation holes and
cause malfunctions.
• Do not place the receiver near equipment
such as a television, VCR, or tape deck. (If
the receiver is being used in combination
with a television, VCR, or tape deck, and is
placed too close to that equipment, noise
may result, and picture quality may suffer.
This is especially likely when using an
indoor antenna. Therefore, we recommend
using an outdoor antenna.)
• Use caution when placing the receiver or
speakers on surfaces that have been specially
treated (with wax, oil, polish, etc.) as
staining or discoloration of the surface may
result.
If color irregularity is observed
again...
Place the speaker further away from the TV
set.
If howling occurs
Reposition the speakers or turn down the
volume on the receiver.
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 receiver, please consult your
nearest Sony dealer.
On operation
Before connecting other components, be sure
to turn off and unplug the receiver.
If you encounter color
irregularity on a nearby TV
screen
The front and center speakers and the sub
woofer are magnetically shielded to allow it to
be installed near a TV set. However, color
irregularities may still be observed on certain
types of TV sets. As the surround speakers are
not magnetically shielded, we recommend that
you place the surround speakers slightly
further away from the TV set (page 14).
If color irregularity is
observed...
Turn off the TV set, then turn it on again after
15 to 30 minutes.
