A HDMI cable (not supplied)
We recommend that you use a Sony HDMI cable.
Notes on HDMI connections
Use a HDMI cable with the HDMI logo (made by Sony). An audio signal input to the HDMI IN jack is output from the SPEAKERS jacks and HDMI OUT jack. It is not output from any other audio jacks. Video signals input to the HDMI IN jack can only be output from the HDMI OUT jack. When you want to listen to the sound from the TV speaker, set AUDIO FOR HDMI to TV+AMP in the VIDEO menu (page 40). If you cannot play back multi channel software, set to AMP. However, the sound will not output from the TV speaker. The multi/stereo area audio signals of a Super Audio CD are not output. Be sure to turn on the receiver when the video and audio of a playback component are being output to a TV via the receiver. If the power supply of the receiver is not turned on, neither video nor audio is transmitted. Audio signals (sampling frequency, bit length, etc.) transmitted from a HDMI jack may be suppressed by the connected component. Check the setup of the connected component if the image is poor or the sound does not come out of a component connected via the HDMI cable. Sound may be interrupted when the sampling frequency or the number of channels of audio output signals from the playback component is switched.
When the connected component is not compatible with copyright protection technology (HDCP), the image and/or the sound from the HDMI OUT jack may be distorted or may not be output. In this case, check the specification of the connected component. You can enjoy multi channel Linear PCM only with an HDMI connection. Set the resolution of the image of the playback component to 720p, 1080i or 1080p when you output 96 kHz multi channel sound over a HDMI connection. We do not recommend using a HDMI-DVI conversion cable. When you connect a HDMI-DVI conversion cable to a DVI-D component, the sound and/or the image may not be output. You may need to make certain settings on the image resolution of the player before you can enjoy multi channel Linear PCM. Refer to the operating instructions of the player. For details on HDMI setup of the connected component, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the connected component.
The DCAC is designed to obtain proper sound balance in your room. However, you can adjust the speaker levels and balance manually according to your preference. For details, see 7: Adjusting the speaker levels and balance (TEST TONE) (page 28).
Under normal conditions, the batteries should last for about 3 months. When the remote no longer operates the receiver, replace all the batteries with new ones.
Before you perform Auto Calibration
Before you perform the Auto Calibration, set up and connect the speakers (page 11, 14). The AUTO CAL MIC jack is used for the supplied optimizer microphone only. Do not connect other microphones to this jack. Doing so may damage the receiver and the microphone. During the calibration, 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 Auto Calibration in a quiet environment to avoid the effect of noise and to 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 obstacles from the measurement area to avoid measurement error. Note
If the muting function has been activated before you perform Auto Calibration, the muting function will be set to off automatically.
Connect the supplied optimizer microphone to the AUTO CAL MIC jack. Set up the optimizer microphone.
Place the optimizer microphone at your listening position.You can also use a stool or tripod so that the optimizer microphone remains at the same height as your ears.
When you face the speaker towards the optimizer microphone, you will get a more accurate measurement.

x D. RANGE (Dynamic range compressor)
Lets you compress the dynamic range of the sound track. 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. COMP. OFF The dynamic range is not compressed. COMP. STD The dynamic range is compressed as intended by the recording engineer. COMP. MAX The dynamic range is compressed dramatically. Tip
Dynamic range compressor lets you compress the dynamic range of the soundtrack based on the dynamic range information included in the Dolby Digital signal. COMP. STD is the standard setting, but it only enacts light compression. Therefore, we recommend using the COMP. 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.

x Dolby Digital
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 Entertainments dubbing studios. There are three modes, A/B/ C, available according to the studio type.
Digital audio encoding/decoding technology developed by Dolby Laboratories, Inc. It consists of front (Left/Right), center, surround (Left/Right) and subwoofer channels. It is a designated audio standard for DVD-video and also known as 5.1 channel surround. Since surround information is recorded and reproduced in stereo, more realistic sound with fuller presence is delivered than with Dolby surround.
x Dolby Pro Logic II
This technology converts 2 channel stereo recorded audio into 5.1 channel for playback. There is a MOVIE mode for movies and MUSIC mode for stereo sources such as music. Old movies encoded in the traditional stereo format can be enhanced with 5.1 channel surround sound.
x Dolby Surround (Dolby Pro Logic)
Audio processing technology developed by Dolby Laboratories, Inc. Center and mono surround information is matrixed into two stereo channels. When reproduced, audio is decoded and output in 4 channel surround sound. This is the most common audio processing method for DVD-video.
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 Digital Cinema Sound (DCS)
A 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 HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is an interface that supports both video and audio on a single digital connection, allowing you to enjoy high quality digital picture and sound. The HDMI specification supports HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Contents Protection), a copy protection technology that incorporates coding technology for digital video signals.
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, grasp the plug itself; never pull the cord. The AC power cord must be changed only at a qualified service shop.
x L.F.E. (Low Frequency Effects)
Sound effects of low frequencies which are output from a subwoofer in Dolby Digital or DTS, etc. By adding a deep bass with a frequency between 20 to 120 Hz, audio becomes more powerful.
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.
Outdoor FM antenna
Ground wire (not supplied)
Radio stations cannot be tuned in. Check that the antennas are connected securely. Adjust the antennas and connect an external antenna, if necessary. The signal strength of the stations is too weak (when tuning in with automatic tuning). Use direct tuning (page 48). Make sure you set the tuning interval correctly (when tuning in AM stations with direct tuning). No stations have been preset or the preset stations have been cleared (when tuning by scanning preset stations). Preset the stations (page 48). RDS does not work. Make sure that you are tuned to an FM RDS station. Select a stronger FM station. Additional Information The RDS information that you want does not appear. Contact the radio station and find out whether they actually provide the service in question. If so, the service may be temporarily out of order.
The FM reception is poor. Use a 75-ohm coaxial cable (not supplied) to connect the receiver to an outdoor FM antenna as shown below. If you connect the receiver to an outdoor antenna, ground it against lightning. To prevent a gas explosion, do not connect the ground wire to a gas pipe.
The remote does not function. For receiver operation, you can only use the DISPLAY button when the TUNER input is selected. Point the remote at the remote sensor on the receiver. Remove any obstacles in the path between the remote and the receiver. Replace all the batteries in the remote with new ones, if they are weak. Make sure you select the correct input on the remote.
If the problem persist
Consult your nearest Sony dealer. Note that if service personnel changes some parts during repair, these parts may be retained.
