Great little amp if you can afford to leave it on. i used this with an old pair of dm330i that are very sensitive and the 60w rms was plenty.

WARNING
To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose the unit to rain or moisture.

Precautions

On safety
Do not disassemble the cabinet as this may result in an electrical shock. Refer servicing to qualified personnel only. Should any solid object or liquid fall into the cabinet, unplug the amplifier and have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it any further.
To avoid electrical shock, do not open the cabinet. Refer servicing to qualified personnel only.
Do the following: lower the volume. keep the turntable as far from the speakers as possible. use commercially available audio insulators on the bottom of the turntable. keep the microphone away from the speakers during use. For further protection against howling, set the speakers or turntable on top of a heavy wooden board or concrete slab. If you have any questions or problems concerning your amplifier, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.

On power sources

Do not install the appliance in a confined space, such as a bookcase or built-in cabinet.
Before operating the amplifier, check that the operating voltage of the amplifier is identical with your local power supply. The operating voltage is indicated on the nameplate at the rear of the amplifier. If you are not going to use the amplifier for a long time, be sure to disconnect the amplifier from the wall outlet. To disconnect the AC power cord (mains lead), grasp the plug itself; never pull the cord. AC power cord must be changed only at the qualified service shop.

On placement

Place the amplifier in a location with adequate ventilation to prevent heat built-up and prolong the life of the amplifier. Do not place the amplifier 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

Before connecting other components, be sure to turn off and unplug the amplifier.
On cleaning the amplifier
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.

Welcome!

Thank you for purchasing the Sony Integrated Stereo Amplifier. Before operating the amplifier, please read this manual thoroughly and retain it for future reference.

Instructions in this manual describe the controls on the amplifier. For details on the remote buttons control, see Remote Button Descriptions on page 11. The following icon is used in this manual:

Unpacking

Check that you have received the following supplied items: Remote commander (remote) (1) RM-S336 Sony batteries R6 (size-AA) (2)
Indicates hints and tips for making the task easier.
Inserting batteries into the remote
Insert two R6 (size-AA) batteries, matching the + and on the batteries with the markings inside the battery compartment. When using the remote, point it at the remote control sensor g on the amplifier.

When to replace batteries
With normal use, the batteries should last for about 6 months. When the remote no longer operates the amplifier, replace all the batteries.
Do not leave the remote near an extremely hot or humid place. Do not drop any foreign object into the remote casing, particularly when replacing the batteries. Do not expose the remote sensor to direct sunlight or lighting equipment. Doing so may cause a malfunction. If you dont use the remote for an extended period of time, remove the batteries to avoid possible damage from battery leakage and corrosion.

Hookup Overview

The amplifier allows you to connect and control the following audio components. Follow the hookup procedure indicated for each component that you want to connect. To learn the location and name of each jack, see Rear Panel Descriptions on page 11.

Before you get started

Turn off the power to all components before making any connections. Do not connect the mains leads of the various components until all connections are completed. Use the audio connecting cords supplied with each component for hooking up with the amplifier. Purchase and use optionally available cords as required. Be sure to make connections firmly to prevent hum and noise. When connecting an audio connecting cord, be sure to match the R (right) and L (left) jacks of the amplifier to the R and L jacks on the other components.

Twist the stripped ends of the cord about 10 mm. 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.

Hookups }

EON CONTROL
If your tuner is equipped with an EON CONTROL OUT terminal, connect it to the EON CONTROL IN terminal on the amplifier to allow use of the EON (Enhanced Other Networks) function of the RDS (Radio Data System) (see page 8).
Connecting to bi-wire system speakers
Since the two pairs of speaker terminals on your amplifier, SPEAKERS A and B, can provide simultaneous speaker output, you can use them to connect a bi-wire speaker system. To drive both speaker systems simultaneously, set SPEAKERS to A+B. To select the speaker system A or B
Set SPEAKERS to A or B. To drive both speaker systems simultaneously, set SPEAKERS to A+B.

Mains Lead Hookups

Connecting the mains lead
Connect the mains lead from this amplifier and from your audio/video components to wall outlets.

You can power other components through AC OUTLET on the amplifier
By connecting other audio components to AC OUTLET on the amplifier, you can supply power to the connected components through the amplifier and turn them all on or off when you turn the amplifier on or off.
Use speakers with a nominal impedance of 4 to 16 ohms. When outputting at the same time to two speaker systems, use speakers with a nominal impedance of 8 to 16 ohms.

Caution

Make sure that the total power consumption of all components connected to the outlets on the amplifier does not exceed 100 watts. Do not connect electrical home appliances such as an electric iron, fan, TV, or other highwattage appliances to these outlets.
Separate the mains lead, audio connecting cords and speaker cords. Noise or sound deterioration may occur when audio connecting cords are in contact with the mains lead, or when the mains lead or speaker cords are placed near the tuners loop aerial or aerial wire.

To listen directly to the input signal
Press SOURCE DIRECT so that the indicator lights up. Since the circuits of TONE controls, BALANCE control, LOUDNESS button, and SUBSONIC button are bypassed, you cannot adjust bass, treble, the balance, reinforce the bass and treble, or reduce subsonic noise components while listening to a source directly.
Avoid high speaker output at which the sound is distorted. High-frequency distortion may damage the tweeters.
Press POWER to turn on the amplifier and turn VOLUME fully anticlockwise to prevent damaging the speakers with excessive output. The PROTECTION indicator lights up, then goes off. Turn on the programme source you want to listen to.

What is the Enhanced Other Networks (EON)?
One convenient RDS service is Enhanced Other Networks (or EON). This allows the unit to automatically switch to a programme type of your choice when one starts in your broadcast area.
To receive the Enhanced Other Networks (EON) programmes
When your amplifier is connected to a Sony tuner with the EON CONTROL system, the amplifier switches to any EON programme that is broadcast in your EON area, and switches back to the last selected programme source when the programme ends. TA-FB940R

SOURCE
Make sure that the amplifier and the tuner are connected through the EON CONTROL terminals (see page 5). Press EON LINK so that the indicator lights up. Whenever an EON programme starts on the radio frequency that your tuner is set to, you will receive it.

To cancel EON reception

Press EON LINK again so that the indicator goes off.
If you select another programme source while receiving an EON programme, EON reception ends. However, as long as the EON LINK indicator lights up, you can receive EON programmes automatically. Make sure to cancel EON reception before starting to record since an EON programme may interfere with your recording. If you activate the Tape Monitor function (see page 9) while the EON LINK indicator is lit, the indicator goes off and you cannot receive EON programmes. If this happens, deactivate the Tape Monitor function so that the indicator lights up again.
