Adjusting the Sound Quality
Enjoying Immersive
Surround Experience
(VERTICAL S.)
You can feel immersed by the sound
from not only the horizontal direction,
but also from the upward direction by
using Vertical Surround Engine*
effectively for sound modes (page 48)
other than [News]. This function also
works for the 2.0 channel signal such as
a TV program.
* Vertical Surround Engine is a highly
precise digital sound field processing
technology developed by Sony that
produces the sound field in the height
direction virtually in addition to a sound
field in the horizontal direction by only
using front speakers and without using
top speakers.
You do not need to install speakers on a
ceiling and you can enjoy the sound with
rich presence regardless of the ceiling
height. Also, this function is hardly
affected by the shape of a room because
it does not use the sound reflected from
a wall and enables improved surround
playback.

On BLUETOOTH
Communication
• BLUETOOTH devices should be used
within approximately 10 meters (33 feet)
(unobstructed distance) of each other.
The effective communication range may
become shorter under the following
conditions.
– When a person, metal object, wall or
other obstruction is between the
devices with a BLUETOOTH connection
– Locations where a wireless LAN is
installed
– Around microwave ovens that are in use
– Locations where other electromagnetic
waves occur
• BLUETOOTH devices and wireless LAN
(IEEE 802.11 b/g/n) use the same
frequency band (2.4 GHz). When using
your BLUETOOTH device near a device
with wireless LAN capability,
electromagnetic interference may occur.
This could result in lower data transfer
rates, noise, or inability to connect. If this
happens, try the following remedies:
– Use this system at least 10 meters
(33 feet) away from the wireless LAN
device.
– Turn off the power to the wireless LAN
device when using your BLUETOOTH
device within 10 meters (33 feet).
– Install this system and BLUETOOTH
device as closer to each other as
possible.
• The radio waves broadcast by this system
may interfere with the operation of some
medical devices. Since this interference
may result in malfunction, always turn off
the power on this system and
BLUETOOTH device in the following
locations:
– In hospitals, on trains, in airplanes, at
gas stations, and any place where
flammable gasses may be present
– Near automatic doors or fire alarms
• This system supports security functions
that comply with the BLUETOOTH
specification to ensure secure connection
84GB
during communication using BLUETOOTH
technology. However, this security may
be insufficient depending on the setting
content and other factors, so always be
careful when performing communication
using BLUETOOTH technology.
• Sony cannot be held liable in any way for
damages or other loss resulting from
information leaks during communication
using BLUETOOTH technology.
• BLUETOOTH communication is not
necessarily guaranteed with all
BLUETOOTH devices that have the same
profile as this system.
• BLUETOOTH devices connected with this
system must comply with the
BLUETOOTH specification prescribed by
the Bluetooth SIG, Inc., and must be
certified to comply. However, even when
a device complies with the BLUETOOTH
specification, there may be cases where
the characteristics or specifications of the
BLUETOOTH device make it impossible to
connect, or may result in different control
methods, display or operation.
• Noise may occur or the audio may cut off
depending on the BLUETOOTH device
connected with this system, the
communications environment, or
surrounding conditions.
If you have any questions or problems
concerning your system, please consult
your nearest Sony dealer.

Precautions
On safety
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into
the system, unplug the system and have
it checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
• Do not climb on the main unit and
subwoofer, as you may fall down and
injure yourself, or system damage may
result.
On power sources
• Before operating the system, check that
the operating voltage is identical to your
local power supply. The operating voltage
is indicated on the nameplate at the
bottom of the main unit.
• If you are not going to use the system for
a long time, be sure to disconnect the
system from the wall outlet (mains). To
disconnect the AC power cord (mains
lead), 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 (mains) only one way.
If you are unable to insert the plug fully
into the outlet, contact your dealer.
• AC power cord (mains lead) must be
changed only at a qualified service shop.
On heat buildup
Although the system heats up during
operation, this is not a malfunction. If you
continuously use this system at high
volume, the system temperature at the
rear and bottom rises considerably. To
avoid burning yourself, do not touch the
system.
On placement
• Do not place the system near heat
sources or in a place subject to direct
sunlight, excessive dust, or mechanical
shock.
• Do not place anything at the rear of the
main unit and subwoofer that might block
89GB
the ventilation holes and cause
malfunctions.
• Do not place metal objects other than a
TV around the system. Wireless functions
may be unstable.
• If the system is being used in combination
with a TV, VCR, or tape deck, noise may
result and picture quality may suffer. In
such a case, place the system away from
the TV, VCR, or tape deck.
• Use caution when placing the system on a
surface that has been specially treated
(with wax, oil, polish, etc.), as staining or
discoloration of the surface may result.
• Take care to avoid any possible injury
from the corners of the main unit and
subwoofer.
• Keep 3 cm or more space under the main
unit when you hang it on a wall.
• The speakers of this system are not of
magnetically shielded type. Do not place
magnetic cards on the system or near it.
On handling the subwoofer
Do not place your hand into the slit of the
subwoofer when lifting it. The speaker
driver may be damaged. When lifting it,
hold the bottom of the subwoofer.
On operation
Before connecting other devices, be sure
to turn off and unplug the system.
If you encounter color irregularity
on a nearby TV screen
Color irregularities may be observed on
certain types of TV sets.
If color irregularity is observed...
Turn off the TV set, then turn it on again
after 15 to 30 minutes.
If color irregularity is observed
again...
Place the system further away from the TV
set.
