|This tiny little mp4 is great value for money! Its 4Gb capacity is fine for a few hundred songs as well as pictures AND movies. Easy-to-brake, while this feature from Sony shows strenghtness, meanwhile stays elegant. I must say that I enjoy watching movies with it.|

Before you perform Auto Calibration
Before you perform Auto Calibration, check the following items. Set up and connect the speakers (page 19, 21). Connect only the supplied optimizer microphone to the AUTO CAL MIC jack. Do not connect any other microphones to this jack. Set the SB Assign to BI-AMP in the Speaker Settings menu if you use bi-amplifier connection (page 65).

Remove any obstacles in the path between the optimizer microphone and the speakers to avoid measurement errors. Get accurate measurement by making sure the environment is free from noise and quiet. Notes
The speakers emit very loud sound during the calibration and the volume cannot be adjusted. Provide consideration to your neighborhood and to the children in presence. If the muting function has been activated before you perform Auto Calibration, the muting function will shut off automatically. The correct measurements may not be able to take or Auto Calibration cannot be performed when special speakers, such as dipole speakers are used.
Select the speaker pattern (page 34).
If you connect front high speakers, select the speaker pattern that has front high speakers (5/x.x or 4/x.x) each time you perform Auto Calibration. Otherwise, the characteristics of the front high speakers cannot be measured.
