Precautions
On safety
• Caution – The use of optical instruments with this
product will increase eye hazard.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the cabinet,
unplug the system and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it any further.
On power sources
• The system is not disconnected from the AC power
source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall
outlet, even if the system itself has been turned off.
• If you are not going to use the system for a long time, be
sure to disconnect the system from the wall outlet. To
disconnect the AC power cord (mains lead), grasp the
plug itself; never pull the cord.
• Should the AC power cord (mains lead) need to be
changed, have it done at a qualified service shop only.
On placement
• Place the system in a location with adequate ventilation
to prevent heat build-up in the system.
• Do not place the system on a soft surface such as a rug
that might block the ventilation holes on the bottom.
• Do not place the system in a location 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
• 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.
On adjusting volume
• Do not turn up the volume while listening to a portion
with very low level inputs or no audio signals. If you
do, the speakers may be damaged when a peak level
portion is played.
If you have any questions or problems concerning your
system, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
Caution: The enclosed 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.

To avoid short-circuiting the speakers
Make sure the stripped end of each speaker cord
does not touch another speaker terminal or the
stripped end of another speaker cord.
Examples of poor conditions of the speaker cord
Stripped speaker cord is touching another speaker terminal.
• Be sure to match the speaker cord to the appropriate
terminal on the components: + to + and – to –. If the
cords are reversed, the sound will be distorted and will
lack bass.
• If you use front speakers with low maximum input
rating, adjust the volume carefully to avoid excessive
output on the speakers.
If you feel lack of bass frequency
Connect an active subwoofer (not supplied) to the
WOOFER OUT jack using a monaural audio cord (not
supplied).
When you connect an active subwoofer, disconnect the
supplied woofer from the SPEAKER WOOFER terminal.

Stripped cords are touching each other due to excessive
removal of insulation.
After connecting all the components, speakers,
and AC power cord, output a test tone to check
that all the speakers are connected correctly. For
details on outputting a test tone, see page 14.
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 whose name is currently displayed on the front
panel display, the speaker may be short-circuited. If this
happens, check the speaker connection again.

Bit rate (page 40)
Value indicating the amount of video data compressed in
a DVD per second. The unit is Mbps (Mega bit 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.
Chapter
Sections of a picture or a music piece on a DVD that are
smaller than titles. A title is composed of several chapters.
Each chapter is assigned a chapter number enabling you
to locate the chapter you want.
Digital Cinema Sound (DCS)
This is the generic name of the surround sound produced
by digital signal processing technology developed by
Sony. Unlike previous surround sound fields mainly
directed at the reproduction of music, Digital Cinema
Sound is designed specifically for the enjoyment of
movies.
Dolby Pro Logic Surround
As one method of decoding Dolby Surround, Dolby Pro
Logic Surround produces four channels from two-channel
sound. Compared with the former Dolby Surround
system, Dolby Pro Logic Surround reproduces left-to-right
panning more naturally and localizes sounds more
precisely. To take full advantage of Dolby Pro Logic
Surround, you should have one pair of rear speakers and
a center speaker. The rear speakers output monaural
sound.
61
Additional Information
Dolby Digital
This sound format for movie theaters is more advanced
than Dolby Pro Logic Surround. In this format, the rear
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”
because the subwoofer channel is counted as 0.1 channel
(since it functions only when a deep bass effect is needed).
All six channels in this format are recorded separately to
realize superior channel separation. Furthermore, since
all the signals are processed digitally, less signal
degradation occurs. The name “AC-3” comes from the
fact that it is the third audio coding method to be
developed by the Dolby Laboratories Licensing
Corporation.
Glossary
DTS
Digital audio compression technology that the Digital
Theater Systems, Inc. developed. This technology
conforms to 5.1-channel surround. The rear channel is
stereo 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 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 single-sided DVD,
at 4.7 GB (Giga Byte), is 7 times that of a CD.
Furthermore, the data capacity of a dual-layer and singlesided 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 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.
Additional Information
MPEG AUDIO (page 36)
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 7.1-channel surround.
Multi-angle function (page 37)
Various angles, or viewpoints of the video camera, for a
scene are recorded on some DVDs.
Multilingual function (pages 13, 35, 44)
Several languages for the sound or subtitles in a picture
are recorded on some DVDs.
Parental Control (page 46)
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.
62
Playback Control (PBC) (page 25)
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.
Title
The longest sections of a picture or a music piece on a
DVD; a movie, etc., for a picture piece on video software;
or an album, etc., for a music piece on an audio software.
Each title is assigned a title number enabling you to locate
the title you want.
Track
Sections of a picture or a music piece on a CD or VIDEO
CD. Each track is assigned a track number enabling you to
locate the track you want.
VIDEO CD
A compact disc that contains moving pictures.
The picture data uses the MPEG 1 format, one of the
worldwide standards 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
the 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.
