enables you to fully enjoy Dolby Digital and
Dolby Pro Logic Surround sound. Dolby Pro
Logic Surround is a decoding system standardized
in TV programs and movies. Dolby Pro Logic
Surround improves the sound image by using four
separate channels. These channels manipulate the
sound to be heard and enhance the action on the
TV screen.
When you have finished setting up the speakers
and adjusting the balance and level (see page 11),
be sure to perform the on-screen setup (see
“Speaker settings” on page 21).
Positioning the speakers

pads
Attach the supplied speaker pads to the bottom of
the front speakers to stabilize the speaker and
prevent it from slipping.

or if the signal strength is weak.
Locating a station by program
type (PTY)
* Not all FM stations provide RDS service, nor do
they provide the same type of services. If you are
not familiar with the RDS system, check with your
local radio stations for details on RDS services in
your area.
You can locate a station you want by selecting a

Precautions
On operating voltage
Before operating the system, check that the operating
voltage of your system is identical with the voltage of
your local power supply.
On safety
• 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.
• Unplug the system from the wall outlet (mains) if it
is not to be used for an extended period of time. To
disconnect the cord (mains lead), pull it out by the
plug. Never pull the cord itself.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the
component, unplug the stereo system and have the
component checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
• The AC power cord must be changed only at a
qualified service shop.
On placement
• Place the unit in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the unit.
• Do not place the unit in an inclined position.
• Do not place the unit in locations where it is;
— extremely hot or cold
— dusty or dirty
— very humid
— vibrating
— subject to direct sunlight.
3 Press ?/1.
The disc tray closes automatically, and the system
turns off.
4 After the front panel display turns off, unplug the
AC power cord.
Notes on discs
• Before playing, clean the disc with a cleaning cloth.
Wipe the disc from the center out.
• Do not use solvents such as benzene, thinner,
commercially available cleaners or anti-static spray
intended for vinyl LPs.
• Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or heat
sources such as hot air ducts, nor leave it in a car
parked in direct sunlight.
• Do not use discs encircled with a protection ring.
This may cause a malfunction to the system.
• When using discs that have glue or similar tacky
substance on the label side of the disc or that used a
special ink when the label was printed, there is a
chance that the disc or label may become attached
to parts inside this unit. When this occurs, it may
not be possible to remove the disc, and may also
cause this unit to malfunction. Be sure to check that
the label side of the disc is not sticky before using.
The following types of disc should not be used:
— Rental or used discs with attached seals where
the glue extends beyond the seal. The perimeter
of the seal on the disc is tacky.
— Discs that have labels printed using a special ink
that feels tacky when touched.
Cleaning the cabinet
Use a soft cloth slightly moistened with mild
detergent solution.
On operation
To save a tape permanently
• If the unit is brought directly from a cold to a warm
location, or is placed in a very damp room, moisture
may condense on the lens inside the DVD player.
Should this occur, the system will not operate
properly. Remove all discs in the unit and leave the
system turned on for about an hour until the
moisture evaporates.
• When you move the system, take out any discs.
To prevent a tape from being accidentally recorded
over, break off the cassette tab from side A or B as
illustrated.
If you have any questions or problems concerning
your system, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.

Take up any slack in the tape. Otherwise the tape may
get entangled in the parts of the tape deck and become
damaged.
When using a tape longer than
90 minutes
The tape is very elastic. Do not change the tape
operations such as play, stop, and fast-winding, etc.
frequently. The tape may get entangled in the tape
deck.
Cleaning the tape heads
Demagnetizing the tape heads
Demagnetize the tape heads and the metal parts that
have contact with the tape every 20 to 30 hours of use
with a separately sold demagnetizing cassette. For

GLOSSARY
Bit rate
Value indicating the amount of video data
compressed in a DVD per second. The unit is
Mbps (Mega bits per second). 1 Mbps indicates
that the data per second is 1,000,000 bits. The
higher the bit rate is, the larger the amount of data.
However, this does not always mean that you can
get higher quality pictures.
Dolby Digital
Digital audio compression technology that the
Dolby Laboratories Corporation developed. This
technology conforms to 5.1-channel surround
sound. The rear channel is stereo and there is
discrete subwoofer channel in this format. Dolby
Digital provides the same 5.1 discrete channels of
high quality digital audio found in Dolby Digital
cinema audio systems. The good channel
separation is realized because the all channel data
is recorded discrete and processed in digital.
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 singlesided DVD, at 4.7 GB (Giga Byte), is 7 times that
of a CD. Furthermore, the data capacity of a duallayer and single-sided DVD is 8.5 GB, a singlelayer and double-sided DVD 9.4 GB, and a duallayer and double-sided DVD 17 GB.
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.
Dolby Pro Logic
MPEG AUDIO
Audio signal processing technology that Dolby
Laboratories Corporation developed for surround
sound. When the input signal has the surround
component, the Pro Logic process outputs the
front, center and rear signals. The rear channel is
monaural.
International standard coding system to compress
audio digital signals authorized by ISO/IEC.
MPEG 1 conforms to up to 2-channel stereo.
MPEG 2 used on DVDs conforms to up to 7.1channel surround.
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.
98
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.
Playback Control (PBC)
Signals encoded on VIDEO CDs (Version 2.0) to
control playback.
Parts Identification for
