1: Installing speakers
This receiver allows you to use a 7.1 channel system (7 speakers and one subwoofer).
Enjoying a 5.1/7.1 channel
system
To fully enjoy theater-like multi-channel
surround sound requires five speakers (two
front speakers, a center speaker, and two
surround speakers) and a subwoofer (5.1
channel system).
You can enjoy high fidelity reproduction of
DVD or Blu-ray Disc software recorded sound
in the Surround EX format if you connect one
additional surround back speaker (6.1 channel
system) or two surround back speakers (7.1
channel system.)

with the SPEAKERS switch (OFF/A/B/
A+B) on the front panel (page 48).
b)
Getting Started
When you connect a subwoofer with an auto
standby function, turn off the function when
watching movies. If the auto standby
function is set to on, it turns to standby mode
automatically based on the level of the input
signal to a subwoofer, then sound may not be
output.
c)
If you connect only one surround back
speaker, connect it to the SURROUND
BACK SPEAKERS L terminals.
Notes
• When you connect all the speakers with a nominal
impedance of 8 ohms or higher, set “Impedance” in
the Speaker settings menu to “8 Ω.” In other
connections, set it to “4 Ω.” For details, see “8:
Setting the speakers” (page 46).
• Before connecting the AC power cord (mains
lead), make sure that metallic wires of the speaker
cords are not touching each other between the
SPEAKERS terminals.
Tip
To connect certain speakers to another power
amplifier, use the PRE OUT jacks. The same signal
is output from both the SPEAKERS terminals and
the PRE OUT jacks. For example, if you want to
connect just the front speakers to another amplifier,
connect that amplifier to the PRE OUT FRONT L
and R jacks.
ZONE 2 connection
You can assign the SURROUND BACK
SPEAKERS terminals E and F to the
speakers of the zone 2. Set “Sur Back Assign”
to “ZONE2” in the Speaker settings menu.
See “Using Multi-zone Features” (page 88)
for details on connection and operation in zone
2.

Notes on converting video
signals
• When video signals from a VCR, etc., are
converted on this receiver and then output to
your TV, depending on the status of the
video signal output, the image on the TV
screen may appear distorted horizontally or
no image may be output.
• HDMI video signals cannot be converted to
component video signals and video signals.
• The converted video signals are not output
from the VIDEO OUT 1 jack.
• When you play a VCR with an image
improvement circuit, such as TBC, the
images may be distorted or may not be
output. In this case, set the image
improvement circuit function to off.
• The resolution of the signals output to the
COMPONENT VIDEO MONITOR OUT
jacks is converted up to 1080i. The
resolution of the signals output to the HDMI
OUT jack is converted up to 1080p.
• COMPONENT VIDEO MONITOR OUT
jacks have restrictions on resolution when
the resolution of video signals protected by
copyright technology is converted.
Resolution of up to 480p can be output to the
COMPONENT VIDEO MONITOR OUT
jacks. The HDMI OUT jack has no
restriction on resolution.
• Video signals for which the resolution has
been converted cannot be output from either
the COMPONENT VIDEO MONITOR
OUT jacks or the HDMI OUT jack. The
video signals are output from the HDMI
OUT jack when both are connected.
• Set “Resolution” to “AUTO” or “480i/576i”
in the Video settings menu to output the
video signals from the MONITOR VIDEO
OUT, COMPONENT VIDEO MONITOR
OUT jacks when both are connected.

The DCAC (Digital Cinema Auto Calibration)
function allows you to perform automatic
calibration, such as checking the connection
between each speaker and the receiver,
adjusting the speaker level, and measuring the
distance of each speaker from your seating
position automatically.
Before you perform the auto
calibration
Before you perform the auto calibration, set up
and connect the speakers (page 22-25).
• The AUTO CAL MIC jack is used for the
supplied optimizer microphone only. Do not
connect other microphones. Doing so may
damage the receiver and the microphone.
• During the measurement, the sound that
comes out of the speakers is very loud. The
volume of the sound cannot be adjusted. Pay
attention to the presence of children or to the
effect on your neighborhood.
• Perform the measurement in a quiet
environment to avoid the effect of noise and
get a more accurate measurement.
• If there are any obstacles in the path between
the optimizer microphone and the speakers,
the calibration cannot be performed
correctly. Remove any obstacle from the
measurement area to avoid measurement
error.
• When you use a bi-amplifier connection, set
“Sur Back Assign” to “BI-AMP” in the
Speaker settings menu before you perform
auto calibration.
Notes
• The auto calibration function does not work if
headphones are connected.
• Cancel MUTING if it is set to on.

Optimizer microphone
Note
Depending on the characteristics of the subwoofer
you are using, the setup distance value may be
further away from the actual position.
To use the receiver as a preamplifier
1
Connect the supplied optimizer
microphone to the AUTO CAL
MIC jack.
2
Set up the optimizer
microphone.
Place the optimizer microphone at your
seating position. Use a stool or tripod so
that the optimizer microphone remains at
the same height as your ears. Orient the L
end of the optimizer microphone toward
the front left speaker and the R end of the
optimizer microphone toward the front
right speaker.
Note
When you position the optimizer microphone
at the center of the two speakers, if the angle
between the two speakers is too narrow, the
optimizer microphone cannot measure the left
and right speakers properly.
On setting up the active
subwoofer
• When a subwoofer is connected, turn on the
subwoofer and turn up the volume
beforehand. Turn the MASTER VOLUME
knob to just before the mid-point.
You can use the auto calibration function when
you use the receiver as a pre-amplifier.
In this case, the distance value shown on the
display may differ from the actual distance
value. However, there will be no problems
even if you continue to use the receiver with
that value.
Performing auto calibration
The auto calibration function allows you to
measure the following:
• Speaker connectionsa)
• Polarity of speakers
• Speaker distanceb)
• Speaker angleb)
• Speaker sizeb)
• Speaker level
• Frequency characteristicsc)
a) This receiver corrects signals by analog
downmix processing only for the center speaker
and subwoofer when the multi-channel input is
selected. The correction is invalid for other
speakers.
b) The measurement result is not utilized when the
multi-channel input is selected.
c) • Signals with a sampling frequency of higher
than 96 kHz are always played back at either
44.1 kHz or 48 kHz.

Tips
• The “LARGE” and “SMALL” settings for each
speaker determine whether the internal sound
processor will cut the bass signal from that
channel.
When the bass is cut from a channel, the bass
redirection circuitry sends the corresponding bass
frequencies to the subwoofer or other “LARGE”
speakers.
However, since bass sound has a certain amount of
directionality, it is best not to cut it, if possible.
Therefore, even when using small speakers, you
can set them to “LARGE” if you want to output the
bass frequencies from that speaker. On the other
hand, if you are using a large speaker, but prefer not
to have bass frequencies output from that speaker,
set it to “SMALL.”
If the overall sound level is lower than you prefer,
set all speakers to “LARGE.” If there is not enough
bass, you can use the equalizer to boost the bass
levels.
• The surround back speakers will be set to the same
setting as that of the surround speakers.
• When the front speakers are set to “SMALL,” the
center, surround, and surround back speakers are
also automatically set to “SMALL.”
• If you do not use the subwoofer, the front speakers
are automatically set to “LARGE.”

D. Range Comp (Dynamic range
compressor)
Lets you compress the dynamic range of the
soundtrack. This may be useful when you want
to watch movies at low volumes late at night.
Dynamic range compression is possible with
Dolby Digital sources only.
x OFF
The dynamic range is not compressed.
x AUTO
The dynamic range is compressed
automatically.
x STD
The dynamic range is compressed as intended
by the recording engineer.
x MAX
The dynamic range is compressed
dramatically.
Tips
When a test tone is not output
from the speakers
• The speaker cords may not be connected
securely. Check to see if they are connected
securely and cannot be disconnected by
pulling on them slightly.
• The speaker cords may have the short-circuit
problem.
• Dynamic range compressor lets you compress the
dynamic range of the soundtrack based on the
dynamic range information included in the Dolby
Digital signal.
• “STD” is the standard setting, but it only enacts
light compression. Therefore, we recommend
using the “MAX” setting. This greatly compresses
the dynamic range and lets you view movies late at
night at low volumes. Unlike analog limiters, the
levels are predetermined and provide a very natural
compression.

Programming the remote
You can customize the remote to match the
components connected to your receiver. You
can even program the remote to control nonSony components and also Sony components
that the remote is normally unable to control.
The procedure below uses as an example a
case in which a VCR made by a company other
than Sony is connected to the VIDEO 2 IN
jacks on the receiver.
Main remote
RM SET
UP
For example, if you are going to control a
VCR connected to VIDEO 2 IN jack,
press VIDEO 2.
RM SET UP and the input button light up.
If you press the button for a component of
which you cannot program the remote,
such as TUNER, PHONO, DMPORT or
SOURCE, etc., the RM SET UP button
keeps flashing.

of the codes if more than one
code exists) corresponding to
the component and the maker
of the component you want to
control.

Using the Remote
Zone 2/Zone 3 remote
Press ENT/MEM or ENTER.
The numeric codes
corresponding to the component
and the maker of the component
Use the numeric codes in the tables below to
control non-Sony components and also Sony
components that the remote is normally unable
to control. Since the remote signal that a
component accepts differs depending on the
model and year of the component, more than
one numeric code may be assigned to a
component. If you fail to program your remote
using one of the codes, try using other codes.
Notes
• The numeric codes are based on the latest
information available for each brand. There is a
chance, however, that your component will not
respond to some or all of the codes.
• All of the input buttons on this remote may not be
available when used with your particular
component.

Additional Information
Glossary
x Cinema Studio EX
A surround sound mode that can be regarded
as the compilation of Digital Cinema Sound
technology, delivers the sound of a dubbing
theater using three technologies: “Virtual
Multi Dimensions,” “Screen Depth Matching,”
and “Cinema Studio Reverberation.”
“Virtual Multi Dimensions,” the virtual
speaker technology, creates a virtual multisurround environment with actual speakers up
to 7.1 channels, and brings the surround sound
experience of a theater with the latest facilities
into your home.
“Screen Depth Matching” reproduces treble
attenuation, fullness, and depth of sound
usually created in a theater using sound
emission from behind the screen. This is then
added to the front and center channels.
“Cinema Studio Reverberation” reproduces
the sound characteristics of state-of-the-art
dubbing theaters and recording studios,
including Sony Pictures Entertainment’s
dubbing studios. There are three modes, A/B/
C, available according to the studio type.
x Component video
x Composite video
A standard format for transmitting video
signal information. The luminance signal Y
and chrominance signal C are combined and
transmitted together.
x Deep Color
Video signals for which the color depth of
signals passing through an HDMI jack have
been raised.
The number of colors that could be expressed
by 1 pixel was 24 bits (16,777,216 colors) with
the current HDMI jack. However, the number
of colors which can be expressed by 1 pixel
will be 36, etc., bits when the receiver
corresponds to Deep Color.
Since the gradation of the depth of a color can
be expressed more finely with more bits,
continuous color changes can be more
smoothly expressed.
x Digital Cinema Sound (DCS)
Unique sound reproduction technology for
home theater developed by Sony, in
cooperation with Sony Pictures Entertainment,
for enjoying the exciting and powerful sound
of movie theaters at home. With this “Digital
Cinema Sound” developed by integrating a
DSP (Digital Signal Processor) and measured
data, the ideal sound field intended by
filmmakers can be experienced at home.
x Digital Concert Hall
“Digital Concert Hall” delivers richer sound
for 2ch stereo sources such as CDs, etc. With
the use of 5.1ch or 7.1ch speakers and virtual
speaker technology, stereoscopic
reverberation and reflected sound are
reproduced, and music software can be
enjoyed with richer sound and presence. The
sound field in a concert hall is recreated by a
geometrical analysis of the concert hall and
precise modeling of reflected and reverberant

Precautions
On safety
Should any solid object or liquid fall into the
cabinet, unplug the receiver and have it
checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
On power sources
• Before operating the receiver, check that the
operating voltage is identical with your local
power supply.
The operating voltage is indicated on the
nameplate on the back of the receiver.
• The unit is not disconnected from the AC
power source (mains) as long as it is
connected to the wall outlet, even if the unit
itself has been turned off.
• If you are not going to use the receiver for a
long time, be sure to disconnect the receiver
from the wall outlet. 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 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 receiver heats up during
operation, this is not a malfunction. If you
continuously use this receiver at a large
volume, the cabinet temperature of the top,
side and bottom rises considerably. To avoid
burning yourself, do not touch the cabinet.
On placement
• Place the receiver in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat buildup and
prolong the life of the receiver.
164GB
• Do not place the receiver 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.
• Do not place the receiver near equipment
such as a television, VCR, or tape deck. (If
the receiver is being used in combination
with a television, VCR, or tape deck, and is
placed too close to that equipment, noise
may result, and picture quality may suffer.
This is especially likely when using an
indoor antenna (aerial). Therefore, we
recommend using an outdoor antenna
(aerial).)
On operation
Before connecting other components, be sure
to turn off and unplug the receiver.
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
