Precautions
Safety
• If anything falls into the cabinet, unplug the unit and
have it checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
• The unit is not disconnected from the AC power
source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall
outlet (mains), even if the unit itself has been turned
off.
• Unplug the unit from the wall outlet 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.
Installing
• 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.

• If the unit is brought directly from a cold to a warm
location, moisture may condense inside the DVD
Home Theatre 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.
Welcome!
Thank you for purchasing Sony DVD Home
Theatre System. Before operating this system,
please read this manual thoroughly and retain it
for future reference.
Precautions
On power sources
AC power cord (mains lead) must be changed only at
the qualified service shop.
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 cooling fan or ventilation slots by
putting anything on the system. Also, do not place the
system on a soft surface such as a rug that might block
the ventilation holes on the bottom. The system is
equipped with a high power amplifier. If the cooling
fan or ventilation slots are blocked, the unit can
overheat and malfunction.
• 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 disc. If you
don’t, the disc may be damaged.
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 farther away from the set.
The nameplate is located on the rear of the unit.
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 moving the system
When you carry the system, use the following
procedure to protect the inner mechanism

Notes on placing speakers
Getting Started
• Do not set the speakers in an inclined position.
• Do not place the speakers in locations that are:
– Extremely hot or cold
– Dusty or dirty
– Very humid
– Subject to vibrations
– Subject to direct sunlight
• Use caution when placing the subwoofer or a speaker stand that is attached with the front/surround speakers on a
specially treated (waxed, oiled, polished, etc.) floor, as staining or discoloration may result.
• Do not lean or hang on the speaker, as the speaker may fall down.
Notes on placing IR transmitter and IR receiver
• Do not install the IR receiver in a place exposed to direct sunlight or strong light such as an incandescent lamp.
• The cords of the IR transmitter and IR receiver are for this system only. You cannot use a commercially available
extension cord.
Note
Do not catch the speaker cable insulation in the SPEAKER jack.
Tip
Connect the speaker cable after bending the speaker wire at the end of the insulation. This prevents the speaker cable
from being caught in the SPEAKER jack.

• Do not use the speaker cord cover and holder without
the supplied screw.
• Before detaching the speaker cord cover, first remove
the screw, then the speaker cord holder. Forcing the
speaker cord cover off with the screw in place may
cause damage.
• Gently pull apart the side of the speaker cord cover
when detaching.
To avoid short-circuiting the speakers
Examples of poor conditions of the speaker cord
Stripped speaker cord is
touching another speaker
terminal.
Stripped cords are touching
each other due to excessive
removal of insulation.
Getting Started
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 jack or the bare wire of another speaker cord.
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 79.
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 in the front panel display, the speaker may be short-circuited. If
this happens, check the speaker connection again.
Notes
• 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 and will lack bass may be distorted.
• If you connect the speaker cord to the system incorrectly, or turn up the volume in a state of a short circuit, the
system enters standby mode and the STANDBY indicator flashes in red. In this case, disconnect the AC power cord
(mains lead) of the system from the wall outlet (mains), reconnect, and then turn the system on.
• If you connect the speaker cord to the surround amplifier incorrectly, or turn up the volume in a state of a short
circuit, the POWER/ON LINE indicator turns off. In this case, disconnect the AC power cord (mains lead) of the
surround amplifier from the wall outlet (mains), reconnect, and then turn the surround amplifier on.
To change the speaker cables
If you want to use a different speaker cable, you can detach the plug for attachment to another cable.
Detaching
Catcher
With the catcher facing down, press and hold the plug down against a flat surface and remove the cords
from plug.

Speaker Setup
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 closer (B) and
the surround speakers up to 4.6 meters closer
(C) to the listening position.
The front speakers can be placed from 1.0 to
7.0 meters (A) from the listening position.
Place speakers as illustrated below
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 meter from the TV set. 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 placed near 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.

Note
Do not place the center and surround speakers farther

To obtain the best possible surround sound, first

listening position, then set the level and balance.
Use the test tone to adjust the speaker level and
balance to the same level.

into your home.
To select sound field, press AUTO FORMAT
DIRECT or MODE on the remote repeatedly
until the sound field you want appears in the
front panel display.
Using only the front speaker
and subwoofer (2 CHANNEL
STEREO)
This mode outputs the sound from the front left
and right speakers and subwoofer. Standard two
channel (stereo) sources completely bypass the
sound field processing. Multi channel surround
formats are downmixed to two channels.
This allows you to play any source using only
the front left and right speakers and subwoofer.

audio input signal (AUTO
FORMAT DIRECT AUTO)
The auto decoding function automatically
detects the type of audio signal being input
(Dolby Digital, DTS, or standard 2 channel
stereo) and performs the proper decoding if
necessary. This mode presents the sound as it
was recorded/encoded, without adding any
effects (e.g. reverberation).
However, if there are no low frequency signals
(Dolby Digital LFE, etc.), it will generate a low
frequency signal for output to the subwoofer.

Glossary
Album

CD containing MP3 audio tracks or JPEG files.
Chapter
Subdivision of a title on a DVD. A title is
composed of several chapters.
Digital Infrared Audio Transmission
Recent times have been witness to the rapid
spread of DVDs, Digital Broadcasting Satellite
Receiver and other high-quality media. In order
to ensure that the subtle nuances endowed by
these high-quality media would be transmitted
with no accompanying deterioration, Sony
developed a technology called “Digital Infrared
Audio Transmission” for the infrared
transmission of digital audio signals using no
compression, and it introduced it into the DAVSB500W.
This technology transfers digital audio signals
using no compression inside the subcarrier
frequency band allocated by the IEC
(International Electronic Committee) and
JEITA (Japan Electronics and Information
Technology Industries Association) for hi-fi
audio transmission applications. (See Fig. 1)
Analog

Digital transmission (Digital
infrared Audio Transmission)
This movie theater sound format for 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.
Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II creates five full-bandwidth
output channels from two-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 soundfield
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.

As one method of decoding Dolby Surround,
Dolby Surround Pro Logic produces four
channels from two-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 Digital Theater Systems, Inc.
developed. This technology conforms to 5.1channel surround. This format comprises of
stereo rear channel 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 due to the all channel data being
recorded discretely and processed in digitally.
DVD
File
Section of a picture on a data CD containing
JPEG image files.
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.
A number that divides a track into sections to
easily locate the point you want on a VIDEO
CD, Super Audio CD, or CD. Depending on the
disc, no indexes may be recorded.
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.
Multi-angle function
Various angles of a scene, or viewpoints of the
video camera 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 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.
Additional Information
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
dual-layer and single-sided DVD is 8.5 GB, a
single-layer and double-sided DVD 9.4 GB, and
a dual-layer and double-sided DVD 17 GB.
The picture data uses the MPEG 2 format, one of
a worldwide standard 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
processes allocated data 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
realistic audio presence.
Furthermore, various advanced functions such
as the multi-angle, multilingual, and Parental
Control functions are provided with the DVD.

Playback Control (PBC)
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.
Progressive format
(sequential scanning)
In contrast to the Interlace format, the
progressive format can reproduce 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 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 “ ALL ” mark. Even when
the region code is not shown on the DVD, the
region limit may still be activated.
Scene
On a VIDEO CD with PBC (playback control)
functions, the menu screens, moving pictures
and still pictures are divided into sections called
“scenes.”
only, you do not have to turn the disc over
during playback. You can play this CD layer
using a conventional CD player.

Super Audio CD
A Super Audio CD disc can reproduce sounds
that are extremely faithful to the original sound
by use of DSD (Direct Stream Digital)
technology. This technology utilizes a sampling
frequency of 2.8224 MHz, which is 64 times that
of a conventional CD, and 1-bit quantization that
enables the disc to hold 4 times the amount of
information that a standard PCM format CD can
hold. Super Audio CDs are divided into the
following types.
• Super Audio CD (single layer disc)
This disc consists of a single HD layer*.
* High density signal layer for the Super Audio CD
HD (high density) layer
• Super Audio CD (dual layer disc)
This disc consists of dual HD layers and is
capable of extended play over long periods.
Also, as the dual layer disc consists of dual HD
layers on one side only, you do not have to turn
the disc over during playback.

Title
The longest section of a picture or music feature
on a DVD, movie, etc., in video software, or the
entire album in audio software.
Track
Section 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).
VIDEO CD
A compact disc that contains moving pictures.
The picture data uses the MPEG 1 format, one of
a worldwide standard 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 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.
