Wanted a reasonably priced receiver, mostly to get speaker-quality sound for sat TV and DVD player. Fills the need well. Pretty easy to set up. Nothing special but above average power for this price range.

x S-AIR (Sony Audio Interactive Radio frequency)
Recent times have seen the rapid spread of DVD media, Digital Broadcasting, and other high quality media. To ensure that the subtle nuances of these high quality media are transmitted with no deterioration, Sony has developed a technology called S-AIR for the radio transmission of digital audio signals with no compression, and has incorporated this technology into the EZWRT10/EZW-T100. This technology transfers digital audio signals with no compression using the 2.4 GHz band range of ISM band (Industrial, Scientific, and Medical band), such as wireless LANs and Bluetooth applications.

x DTS Digital Surround

Digital audio encoding/decoding technology for theaters developed by DTS, Inc. It compresses audio less than Dolby Digital, delivering a higher quality sound reproduction.

x DTS-ES

Format for 6.1 channel playback with surround back information. There are two modes, Discrete 6.1 which records all channels independently, and Matrix 6.1 which matrixes surround back channel into LS (left surround) and RS (right surround) channels. It is ideal for playback of motion picture soundtracks.

x Sampling frequency

To convert analog audio to digital, analog data should be quantified. This process is called sampling, and the number of times per second the analog data is quantified is called the sampling frequency. A standard music CD stores data quantified at 44,100 times per second, which is expressed as a sampling frequency of 44.1 kHz. Generally speaking, a higher sampling frequency means better sound quality.

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. The AC power cord (mains lead) must be changed only at a qualified service shop.

The surround effect cannot be obtained. Make sure the sound field function is on (press MOVIE, or MUSIC). Sound fields do not function for signals with a sampling frequency of more than 48 kHz. Dolby Digital or DTS multi channel sound is not reproduced. Check that the DVD, etc. you are playing is recorded in Dolby Digital or DTS format. When connecting the DVD player, etc., to the digital input jacks of this receiver, check the audio setting (the settings for the audio output) of the connected component. There is no sound from the component connected to the DIGITAL MEDIA PORT adapter. Adjust the volume of this receiver. The DIGITAL MEDIA PORT adapter and/or component is not connected correctly. Turn off the receiver, then reconnect the DIGITAL MEDIA PORT adapter and/or component. Check the DIGITAL MEDIA PORT adapter and/or component device to make sure it supports this receiver.
There is no picture or an unclear picture appears on the TV screen. Select the appropriate input using the input buttons. Set your TV to the appropriate input mode. Move your audio components away from the TV. Depending on the DIGITAL MEDIA PORT adapter, video output may not be possible. Recording cannot be carried out. Check that the components are connected correctly (page 22). Select the source component using the input buttons (page 36).
The control for HDMI function does not work. Check the HDMI connection (page 23). Make sure CONTROL FOR HDMI is set to CTRL ON in HDMI menu. Make sure the connected component is compatible with the Control for HDMI function. Check the Control for HDMI settings on the connected component. See the operating instructions of the connected component. If you change the HDMI connection, connect/disconnect the AC power cord, or there is a power failure, repeat the procedures of Preparing for the BRAVIA Sync (page 76). No sound is output from the receiver and TV speaker while using the System Audio Control function. Make sure the TV is compatible with the System Audio Control function. If the TV does not have System Audio Control function, set the AUDIO FOR HDMI settings in HDMI menu to TV+AMP if you want to listen to the sound from the TV speaker and receiver. AMP if you want to listen to the sound from the receiver. If you cannot listen to the sound of a component connected to the receiver Select the appropriate input when you want to watch a program on a component connected via HDMI connection to the receiver. Change the TV channel when you want to watch a TV broadcast. Select the component or input you want to watch when you watch a program on the component connected to the TV. Refer to the operating instructions of the TV on this operation.
