How to connect speaker cables
Connect speaker cables as illustrated below.
*
Strip the jacket to 10 mm (13/32 in) at each end of the speaker cables.
Confirming active subwoofer setup
When a subwoofer is connected, turn on the subwoofer and turn up the volume prior to
activating the subwoofer. Turn the LEVEL to just before the mid-point.
If you connect a subwoofer with a crossover frequency function, set the value to
maximum.
If you connect a subwoofer with an auto standby function, set it to off (deactivated). For
details, refer to the operating instructions of the subwoofer.
Note
Depending on the characteristics of the subwoofer you are using, the setup distance
value may be different from the actual position.
Auto Format Direct (A.F.D.)/2-channel sound mode
Auto Format Direct (A.F.D.) mode: This mode allows you to listen to higher-fidelity
sound and select the decoding mode for listening to a 2-channel stereo or monaural
sound as multi-channel sound.
2-channel sound mode: You can switch the output sound to 2-channel sound regardless
of the recording formats of the software you are using, the playback device connected, or
the sound field settings of the receiver.
A.F.D./2CH: Auto Format Direct (A.F.D.):
Presets the sound as it was recorded/encoded without adding any surround effects.
However, for USA and Canada models, this receiver will generate a low-frequency signal for
output to the subwoofer when there is no LFE signals.
Multi Stereo (MULTI ST.):
Outputs 2-channel left/right or monaural signals from all speakers. However, sound may not
be output from certain speakers depending on the speaker settings.
2ch Stereo (2CH ST.):
The receiver outputs the sound from the front left/right speakers only. There is no sound from
the subwoofer.
Standard 2-channel stereo sources completely bypass the sound field processing and multi-
channel surround formats are downmixed to 2-channels.
Analog Direct (A. DIRECT):
You can switch the audio of the selected input to 2-channel analog input. This function
enables you to enjoy high-quality analog sources.
Only the volume and front speaker level can be adjusted when using this function.
Note
You cannot select [Analog Direct] while using the BD/DVD, GAME, VIDEO 2,
BLUETOOTH, USB, Home Network, Music Services, AirPlay or Screen mirroring
function.
[Multi Stereo] does not work when multi-channel audio signals are being received.
Depending on the audio format, if you select [A.F.D./2CH: Auto Format Direct] and play a
5.1ch source when surround speakers and two surround back speakers are connected,
the same audio as that from surround speakers will be output from surround back
speakers, similar to that of a 7.1ch surround system. The sound level of surround and
surround back speakers are adjusted automatically for optimum balance.
[Movie] mode
You can take advantage of surround sound simply by selecting one of the receiver’s preprogrammed sound fields. They bring the exciting and powerful sound of movie theaters into
your home.
HD-D.C.S.:
HD Digital Cinema Sound (HD-D.C.S.) is Sony’s new innovative home theater technology
using the latest acoustic and digital signal processing technologies. It is based on the precise
response measurement data of a mastering studio.
With this mode, you can enjoy Blu-ray and DVD movies at home with not only a high-quality
of sound but also the best sound ambience, just as the movie’s sound engineer intended in
the mastering process.
Dynamic: This setting is suitable for an environment which is reverberant but lacks a
spacious feel (where sound absorption is not sufficient). It emphasizes the reflection of
sound and reproduces the sound of a large, classic movie theater. This emphasizes the
spacious feel of a dubbing theater and creates a unique acoustic field.
Theater: This setting is suitable for a general living room. It reproduces the reverberation
of sound just like in a movie theater (dubbing theater). It is most appropriate for watching
content recorded on a Blu-ray Disc when you want the atmosphere of a movie theater.
Studio: This setting is suitable for a living room with the appropriate sound devices. It
reproduces the reverberation of sound provided when a theatrical sound source is
remixed for a Blu-ray Disc to a volume level suitable for home use. The level of reflection
and reverberation of sound is kept to a minimum, while dialogues and surround effects
are reproduced vividly.
PLll Movie:
Performs Dolby Pro Logic II Movie mode decoding. This setting is ideal for movies encoded
in Dolby Surround. In addition, this mode can reproduce sound in 5.1-channel format when
watching videos of overdubbed or old movies.
PLllx Movie:
Performs Dolby Pro Logic IIx Movie mode decoding. This setting expands Dolby Pro Logic II
Movie or Dolby Digital 5.1 to 7.1 discrete movie channels.
Neo:6 Cinema (Neo:6 CIN):
Performs DTS Neo:6 Cinema mode decoding. Sources recorded in 2-channel format are
enhanced up to 7 channels.
[Music] mode
You can take advantage of surround sound simply by selecting one of the receiver’s preprogrammed sound fields. These bring the exciting and powerful sound of concert halls into
your home.
Concert Hall A (HALL A):
Reproduces the acoustics of a vineyard style concert hall in Berlin famous for its clear
acoustics.
Concert Hall B (HALL B):
Reproduces the acoustics of a shoe box style concert hall with plaster walls in Amsterdam.
Concert Hall C (HALL C):
Reproduces the acoustics of a wooden shoe box style concert hall in Vienna.
Jazz Club (JAZZ):
Reproduces the acoustics of a jazz club.
Live Concert (CONCERT):
Reproduces the acoustics of a 300-seat live house.
Stadium (STADIUM):
Reproduces the feel of a large open-air stadium.
Sports (SPORTS):
Reproduces the feel of sports broadcasting.
Portable Audio (PORTABLE):
Upscales existing sound sources to near hi-resolution sound quality with DSEE HX. This
sound field makes you feel as if you are really at the recording studio or concert.
DSEE HX only works on 2-channel sound sources with a sampling frequency of 44.1 kHz or
48 kHz. However, it does not work during AirPlay playback.
PLll Music:
Performs Dolby Pro Logic II Music mode decoding. This setting is ideal for normal stereo
sources such as CDs.
PLllx Music:
Performs Dolby Pro Logic IIx Music mode decoding. This setting is ideal for normal stereo
sources such as CDs.
Neo:6 Music (Neo:6 MUS):
Performs DTS Neo:6 Music mode decoding. Sources recorded in 2-channel format are
enhanced up to 7 channels. This setting is ideal for normal stereo sources such as CDs.
When listening with headphones
You can only select this sound field if headphones are connected to the receiver.
Headphone(2ch) (HP 2CH):
This mode is selected automatically if you use headphones (except when [Analog Direct] is
selected). Standard 2-channel stereo sources completely bypass the sound field processing
and multi-channel surround formats are downmixed to 2 channels except LFE signals.
Headphone(Direct) (HP DIRECT):
This mode is selected automatically if you use headphones when [Analog Direct] is selected.
This mode outputs analog signals without processing by the equalizer, sound field, etc.
Checking the information of a connected BLUETOOTH
device
You can check the BLUETOOTH device information by pressing DISPLAY MODE on the
receiver repeatedly.
Each time you press DISPLAY MODE, the display will change cyclically as follows:
