This symbol is intended to alert the user
to the presence of uninsulated
“dangerous voltage” within the
product’s enclosure that may be of
sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk
of electric shock to persons.
This symbol is intended to alert the user
to the presence of important operating
and maintenance (servicing)
instructions in the literature
accompanying the appliance.
This Class B digital apparatus meets all
requirements of the Candadian
Interference Causing Equipment
Regulations.

This equipment has been tested and
found to comply with the limits for a
Class B digital device, pursuant to Part
15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are
designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference
in a residential installation. This
equipment generates, uses, and can
radiate radio frequency energy and, if
not installed and used in accordance
with the instructions, may cause
harmful interference to radio
communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not
occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television
reception, which can be determined by
turning the equipment off and on, the
user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the
following measures:
– Reorient or relocate the receiving
antenna.
– Increase the separation between the
equipment and receiver.
– Connect the equipment into an outlet
on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected.
– Consult the dealer or an experienced
radio/TV technician for help.
CAUTION
You are cautioned that any changes or
modification not expressly approved in
this manual could void your authority
to operate this equipment.
Precautions
On safety
Should any solid object or liquid fall
into the cabinet, unplug the amplifier
and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it any
further.
On power sources
• Before operating the amplifier, check
that the operating voltage is identical
with your local power supply. The
operating voltage is indicated on the
nameplate at the rear of the amplifier.
• If you are not going to use the
amplifier for a long time, be sure to
disconnect the amplifier 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.
• Should the AC power cord need to be
changed, have it done at a qualified
service shop only.
On placement
• Place the amplifier in a location with
adequate ventilation to prevent heat
build-up and prolong the life of the
amplifier.
• Do not place the amplifier 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.
On operation
Before connecting other components, be
sure to turn off and unplug the
amplifier.
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 question or problem
concerning your amplifier, please
consult your nearest Sony dealer.

Dolby Pro Logic Surround
Decoding system of Dolby Surround sound
standardized in TV programs and movies.
Compared with the former Dolby Surround
system, Dolby Pro Logic Surround improves
sound image by using four separate channels:
off-screen audio effects, on-screen dialog,
left-to-right panning, and music. These
channels manipulate the sound to be heard
and enhance the action as it happens on the
screen. To take advantage of Dolby Pro Logic,
you should have at least one pair of rear
speakers and/or one center speaker. You also
need to select the appropriate center mode to
enjoy a full effect.
Test tone
Signal given out by the amplifier for
adjusting the speaker volume. The test tone
will come out as follows:
• In a system with a center speaker
(NORMAL/WIDE/3 CH modes)
The test tone is output from the front L
(left), center, front R (right), and rear
speakers in succession.

Encoding and decoding system of Dolby
Surround sound for consumer use. Dolby
Surround decodes the extra channels on the
Dolby Surround-encoded sound tracks of
movie videos and TV programs and produces
sound effects and echoes that make the action
seem to envelop you.
The amplifier offers Dolby Surround as one
of the pre-programmed sound fields. If you
have rear or center speaker(s), we
recommend that you customize the Dolby
Surround sound field by selecting the
appropriate center mode to take advantage of
Dolby Pro Logic Surround sound.
