Note on video component
hookups
You can connect your TV’s audio output jacks
to the VIDEO 2 AUDIO IN jacks on the
receiver and apply sound effects to the audio
from the TV. In this case, do not connect the
TV’s video output jack to the VIDEO 2
VIDEO IN jack on the receiver. If you are
connecting a separate TV tuner (or satellite
tuner), connect both the audio and video output
jacks to the receiver as shown above.
9GB
Digital component hookups
Connect the digital output jacks of your DVD player and satellite tuner (etc.) to the receiver’s digital
input jacks to bring the multi channel surround sound of a movie theater into your home. To fully
enjoy multi channel surround sound, five speakers (two front speakers, two surround speakers, and a
center speaker) and a sub woofer are required. You can also connect an LD player with an RF OUT
jack via an RF demodulator, like the Sony MOD-RF1 (not supplied).
Notes
• You cannot connect an LD player’s DOLBY DIGITAL RF OUT jack directly to this unit’s digital input jacks.
You must first convert the RF signal to either an optical or coaxial digital signal. For details, see
“Troubleshooting” on page 49.
• All the OPTICAL and COAXIAL jacks are compatible with 96 kHz, 48 kHz, 44.1 kHz and 32 kHz sampling
frequencies.

Multi channel input hookups
STR-DE585 and STR-DE485 only
To fully enjoy multi channel surround sound, five speakers (two front speakers, two surround
speakers, and a center speaker) and a sub woofer are required. Refer to the operating instructions
supplied with your DVD player, multi channel decoder, etc., for details on the multi channel
hookups.
Notes
• When using the connections described below, adjust the level of the surround speakers and sub woofer from the
DVD player or multi channel decoder.
• See page 13 for details on speaker system hookup.
Hooking Up the Components
Although this receiver incorporates a multi channel decoder, it is also equipped with multi channel
input jacks. These connections allow you to enjoy multi channel software encoded in formats other
than Dolby Digital and DTS. If your DVD player is equipped with multi channel output jacks, you
can connect them directly to the receiver to enjoy the sound of the DVD player’s multi channel
decoder. Alternatively, the multi channel input jacks can be used to connect an external multi channel
decoder.

Notes
• Twist the stripped ends of the speaker cords about
10 mm (2/3 inch). 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 speakers with low maximum input rating,
adjust the volume carefully to avoid excessive
output on the speakers.
To avoid short-circuiting the
speakers
Short-circuiting of the speakers may damage
the receiver. To prevent this, make sure to take
the following precautions when connecting the
speakers.
Make sure the stripped ends of each
speaker cord does not touch another
speaker terminal, the stripped end of
another speaker cord, or the metal parts of
the receiver.
Examples of poor conditions of the
speaker cord
Stripped speaker cord is touching another
speaker terminal.
14GB
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 20.
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 receiver, the
speaker may be short-circuited. If this happens,
check the speaker connection again.
To avoid damaging your
speakers
Make sure that you turn down the volume
before you turn off the receiver. When you turn
on the receiver, the volume remains at the level
you turn off the receiver.
Performing initial setup
operations
Tip
To check the audio output during settings (to set up
while outputting the sound), check the connection
(page 20).
Before using your receiver for the first time,
adjust SET UP parameters so that the receiver
correspond to your system. For the adjustable
parameters, see the table on page 54. See pages
16–20 for speaker settings and pages 36-37 for
other settings.
Multi channel surround
setup
Clearing the receiver’s
memory
For the best possible surround sound, all
speakers should be the same distance from the
listening position (A).
Before using your receiver for the first time, or
when you want to clear the receiver’s memory,
do the following.
However, the receiver lets you place the center
speaker up to 1.5 meters (5 feet) closer (B)
and the surround speakers up to 4.5 meters (15
feet) closer (C) to the listening position.
This procedure is not necessary if the
demonstration activates when you turn on the
power.
1 Turn off the receiver.
2 Hold down ?/1 for 5 seconds.
The demonstration starts (page 4) and all of
the following items are reset or cleared:
• All preset stations are reset or cleared.
• All sound field parameters are reset to
their factory settings.
• All index names (of preset stations and
program sources) are cleared.
• All SET UP parameters are reset to
their factory settings.
• The sound field memorized for each
program source and preset stations are
cleared.
• The master volume is set to VOL MIN.
Hooking Up and Setting Up the Speaker System
Once you have hooked up the speakers and
turned on the power, clear the receiver’s
memory. Then specify the speaker parameters
(size, position, etc.) and perform any other
initial setup operations necessary for your
system.
Performing initial setup
operations
The front speakers can be placed from 1.0 to
12.0 meters (3 to 40 feet) from the listening
position (A).
You can place the surround speakers either
behind you or to the side, depending on the
shape of your room (etc.).

speakers (if set to “LARGE”) or sub woofer.*1
Internally, 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 sub woofer or other “LARGE”
speakers.
However, since bass sounds have a certain amount of
directionality, it is best not to cut them, 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 BASS +/– to boost the bass levels. To
adjust the bass, see page 29.
• If you do not connect a center speaker, select
“NO”. The sound of the center channel will be
output from the front speakers.*2
Tip
Hooking Up and Setting Up the Speaker System
• If the sound is distorted, or you feel a lack of
surround effects when using multi channel
surround sound, select “SMALL” to activate
the bass redirection circuitry and output the
front channel bass frequencies from the sub
woofer.
x Surround speaker size (
• If you connect large speakers that will
effectively reproduce bass frequencies, select

The receiver allows you to input the speaker position
in terms of distance. However, it is not possible to set
the center speaker further than the front speakers.
Also, the center speaker cannot be set more than
1.5 meters (5 feet) closer than the front speakers.
Likewise, the surround speakers can not be set further
away from the listening position than the front
speakers. And they can be no more than 4.5 meters
(15 feet) closer.
This is because incorrect speaker placement is not
conducive to enjoy surround sound.
Please note that, setting the speaker distance closer
than the actual location of the speakers will cause a
delay in the output of the sound from that speaker. In
other words, the speaker will sound like it is farther
away.
For example, setting the center speaker distance
1~2 m (3~6 feet) closer than the actual speaker
position will create a fairly realistic sensation of being
“inside” the screen. If you cannot obtain a satisfactory
surround effect because the surround speakers are too
close, setting the surround speaker distance closer
(shorter) than the actual distance will create a larger
sound stage.
Adjusting these parameter while listening to the
sound often results in much better surround sound.

This parameter lets you specify the height of
your surround speaker(s) for proper
implementation of the Digital Cinema Sound
surround modes. Refer to the illustration below.
The surround speaker position parameter is designed
specifically for implementation of the Digital Cinema
Sound modes with virtual elements.
With the Digital Cinema Sound modes, speaker
position is not as critical as other modes. All modes
with virtual elements were designed under the
premise that the surround speaker would be located
behind the listening position, but presentation remains
fairly consistent even with the surround speakers
positioned at a rather wide angle. However, if the
speakers are pointing towards the listener from the
immediate left and right of the listening position, the
sound fields with virtual elements will not be
effective unless the surround speaker position
parameter is set to “PL. SIDE”.
Nevertheless, each listening environment has many
variables, like wall reflections, and you may obtain
better results using “PL. BEHD.” or “PL. MID” if
your speakers are located high above the listening
position, even if they are to the immediate left and
right.
Therefore, although it may result in a setting contrary
to the “Surround speaker position” explanation, we
recommend that you playback multi channel surround
encoded software and listen to the effect each setting
has on your listening environment. Choose the setting
that provides a good sense of spaciousness and that
best succeeds in forming a cohesive space between
the surround sound from the surround speakers and
the sound of the front speakers. If you are not sure
which sounds best, select “PL. BEHD.” and then use
the speaker distance parameter and speaker level
adjustments to obtain proper balance.

Additional Information
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 unit, check that the operating
voltage is identical with your local power supply.
The operating voltage is indicated on the nameplate
at the rear 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 receiver 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,
grasp the plug itself; never pull the cord.
• (Models of area code U, CA only)
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 must be changed only at the
qualified service shop.
On heat buildup
On placement
• Place the receiver in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat buildup and prolong the
life of the receiver.
• 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.
If you experience any of the following
difficulties while using the receiver, use this
troubleshooting guide to help you remedy the
problem. Also, see “Checking the connections”
on page 20 to verify that the connections are
correct. Should any problem persist, consult
your nearest Sony dealer.
There is no sound or only a very low-level sound
no matter which component is selected.
• Check that the speakers and components are
connected securely and correctly.
• Check that both the receiver and all components
are turned on.
• Check that the MASTER VOLUME control is
not set at VOL MIN.
• Press MUTING to cancel the muting function.
• Check that the headphones are not connected.
• The protective device on the receiver has been
activated because of a short circuit (“PROTECT”
flashes). Turn off the receiver, eliminate the
short-circuit problem and turn on the power
again.

Additional Information
Although the unit heats up during operation, this is
not a malfunction. If you continuously use this unit at
a large volume, the cabinet temperature of the top,
side and bottom rises considerably. To avoid burning
yourself, do not touch the cabinet.
Troubleshooting
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 abrasive pad, scouring powder or
solvent such as alcohol or benzine.
If you have any question or problem concerning your
receiver, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.
