Surround speaker (L)
Getting Started
• 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 speakers and/or speaker stands (not supplied) that are attached with the 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.
To connect the speaker cords
Connect the speaker cords after bending the bare wire at the end of the insulation. This prevents the
speaker insulation from being inserted in the speaker terminal.
Note
• Do not catch the speaker cord insulation in the SPEAKER jack.
Avoiding short-circuiting the speakers
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 terminal or the bare wire of another speaker cord.
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.
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 76.
continued
17US
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.
Note
• 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 will lack bass and may be distorted.
Installing the speakers on the wall

DVD software can be divided into 2 types: film-based software and video-based software.
Video-based software is derived from TV, such as dramas and sit-coms, and displays images at 30
frames/60 fields per second. Film-based software is derived from film and displays images at 24 frames
per second. Some DVD software contains both video and film.
In order for these images to appear natural on your screen when output in progressive format, the
progressive signals need to be converted to match the type of DVD software that you are watching.
Note
• When you play video-based software in progressive signal format, sections of some types of images may appear
unnatural due to the conversion process when output through the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks. Even though
you set to “PROGRESSIVE AUTO” or “PROGRESSIVE VIDEO,” images from the MONITOR (VIDEO or S
VIDEO) jack are unaffected as they are output in the interlace format (NORMAL).

Positioning the speakers
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 (5 ft) closer (B)
and the surround speakers up to 5.0 meters (16
ft) closer (C) to the listening position.
The front speakers can be placed from 1.0 to
7.0 meters (4 to 23 ft) (A) from the listening
position.
Place speakers as illustrated below.
Note
• Do not place the center and surround speakers farther
away from the listening position than the front
speakers.
About magnetically shielded
speakers (to prevent color
irregularity occurring on the TV
screen)
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 (1.0 foot) 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
30US
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.

What is MP3/JPEG?
MP3 is audio compression technology that
satisfies the ISO/MPEG regulations. JPEG is
image compression technology.
Discs that the system can
play
You can play back DATA CDs (CD-ROMs/CDRs/CD-RWs) recorded in MP3 (MPEG1 Audio
Layer 3) and JPEG format. However, the discs
must be recorded according to ISO 9660 Level
1, Level 2 or Joliet format for the system to
recognize the tracks (or files). You can also play
discs recorded in Multi Session.
See the instructions supplied with the CD-R/
CD-RW drives and the recording software (not
supplied) for details on the recording format.
About the multi-session disc
If MP3 audio tracks or JPEG image files are
recorded in the first session, the system will also
play MP3 audio tracks or JPEG image files in
other sessions. If audio tracks and images in
audio CD format or video CD format are
recorded in the first session, only the first
session will be played back.
Note
• The system may not be able to play some DATA CDs
created in the Packet Write format. In this case, you
cannot view the JPEG images recorded.
MP3 audio track or JPEG
image file that the system can
play
The system can play the MP3 audio tracks or
JPEG image files:
• which have the extension “.MP3” (MP3 audio
track) or “.JPG”/“.JPEG” (JPEG image file)
• which conform to the DCF* image file format

next album in the same tree. (Example: C
contains D so 4 is played before 5.)
Note
When you press MENU and the list of album
names appears (page 40), the album names are
arranged in the following order:
A t B t C t D t F t G. Albums
that do not contain tracks (or files) (such as
album E) do not appear in the list.
• The system will play any data with the
extension “.MP3,” “.JPG,” or “.JPEG” even if
they are not in MP3 or JPEG format. Playing
this data may generate a loud noise which
could damage your speaker system.
• The system does not conform to audio in
MP3PRO format.
Playback order of MP3 audio
tracks or JPEG image files
The playback order of MP3 audio tracks or
JPEG image files recorded on a DATA CD is as
follows:
x Structure of disc contents
Tree 1

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.

Additional Information
Precautions
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 ventilation slots by putting anything
on the system. The system is equipped with a high
power amplifier. If the ventilation slots are blocked,
the unit can overheat and malfunction.
• Do not place the system on a soft surface such as a rug
and do not block the ventilation holes.
• 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 adjusting volume
• 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 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.
78US
• 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.

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.

Design and specifications are subject to change
without notice.
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 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 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.
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
84US
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. This
technology conforms to 5.1-channel 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
DVD-RW
A DVD-RW is a recordable and rewritable disc
that is the same size as a DVD VIDEO. The
DVD-RW has two different modes: VR mode
and Video mode. DVD-RWs created in Video
mode have the same format as a DVD VIDEO,
while discs created in VR (Video Recording)
mode allow the contents to be programmed or
edited.
A DVD+RW (plus RW) is a recordable and
rewritable disc. DVD+RWs use a recording
format that is comparable to the DVD VIDEO
format.
File
A JPEG image recorded on a DATA CD. (“File”
is an exclusive definition for this system.) A
single file consists of a single image.
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.
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.
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.
DVD+RW
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.
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.

85US
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 discs
that match its region code. The system can also
play discs with the “ ” mark. Even when the
region code is not shown on the DVD, the region
limit may still apply.
ALL
Scene
On a VIDEO CD with PBC (playback control)
functions, the menu screens, moving pictures
and still pictures are divided into sections called
“scenes.”
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
VIDEO CD, 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.
86US
• Version 2.0: You can play high-resolution still
pictures and enjoy PBC functions.
This system conforms to both versions.
