WARNING
To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose the unit to rain or moisture. To avoid electrical shock, do not open the cabinet. Refer servicing to qualified personnel only. Do not install the appliance in a confined space, such as a bookcase or built-in cabinet.

Precautions
On safety
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.

On power sources
Before operating the amplifier, 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 amplifier. 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 amplifier for a long time, be sure to disconnect the amplifier from the wall outlet. To disconnect the AC power cord, 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 buildup 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
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 amplifier, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.

Connecting the AC power cord
Hooking Up the Components Before connecting the AC power cord of this amplifier to a wall outlet: Connect the speaker system to the amplifier (see page 13). Turn the MASTER VOLUME control to the leftmost position (0). Connect the AC power cord(s) of your audio/video components to a wall outlet. If you connect other audio/video components to the AC OUTLET(s) on the amplifier, the amplifier will supply power to the connected component(s), allowing you to turn the whole system on or off when you turn the amplifier on/off.
Caution
Make sure that the total power consumption of the component(s) connected to the amplifier's AC OUTLET(s) does not exceed the wattage stated on the rear panel. Do not connect high-wattage electrical home appliances such as electric irons, fans, or TVs to this outlet.

If you have a CONTROL A1 compatible Sony CD player, tape deck, or MD deck Use a CONTROL A1 cord (not supplied) to connect the CONTROL A1 jack on the CD player, tape deck, or MD deck to the CONTROL A1 jack on the amplifier. Refer to "CONTROL A1 Control System" on page 49 and the operating instructions supplied with your CD player, tape deck, or MD deck for details.
Note
If you make CONTROL A1 connections from the amplifier to an MD deck that is also connected to a computer, do not operate the amplifier while using the "Sony MD Editor" software. This may cause a malfunction.

If you have a Sony CD changer with a COMMAND MODE selector If your CD changer's COMMAND MODE selector can be set to CD 1, CD 2, or CD 3, be sure to set the command mode to "CD 1" and connect the changer to the CD jacks on the amplifier. If, however, you have a Sony CD changer with VIDEO OUT jacks, set the command mode to "CD 2" and connect the changer to the VIDEO 2 jacks on the amplifier.

Note
If the AC power cord is disconnected for about two weeks, the amplifier's entire memory will be cleaned and the demonstration will start.

Speaker System Hookup

To avoid short-circuiting the speakers
Short-circuiting of the speakers may damage the amplifier. To prevent this, make sure to take the following precautions when connecting the speakers. Hooking Up and Setting Up the Speaker System Make sure the stripped ends of each speaker cord does not touch another speaker terminal or the stripped end of another speaker cord. Examples of poor conditions of the speaker cord

Speaker impedance
To enjoy multi channel surround, connect front, center, and rear speakers with a nominal impedance of 8 ohms or higher, and set the speaker IMPEDANCE SELECTOR to "8." Check the instruction manual supplied with your speakers if you're not sure of their impedance. (This information is usually printed on a label on the back of the speaker.) If you connect any speaker with a nominal impedance between 4 ohms and 8 ohms to the FRONT, CENTER or REAR SPEAKERS terminals, you must set the IMPEDANCE SELECTOR to "4."
Notes
Be sure to connect front speakers with a nominal impedance of 8 ohms or higher if you want to select both sets (A+B) of front speakers (see page 25). Speakers with an impedance of less than 4 ohms cannot be used.

Stripped speaker cord is touching another speaker terminal.

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 19. 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 amplifier, the speaker may be short-circuited. If this happens, check the speaker connection again.

z *1~*3 correspond to the following Dolby Pro Logic modes
*1 NORMAL *2 PHANTOM *3 3 STEREO (*2 + *3 = 2ch mode).

z About speaker sizes (LARGE and SMALL)
Internally, the LARGE and SMALL settings for each speaker determine whether or not 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" speaker. However, since bass sounds have a certain amount of directionality it 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 equalizer to boost the bass levels. To adjust the equalizer, see page 37.

z About speaker distances
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 rear speakers are too close, setting the rear speaker distance closer (shorter) than the actual distance will create a larger soundstage. Adjusting these parameter while listening to the sound often results in much better surround sound. Give it a try!

p Sub woofer selection SUB WOOFER [YES] Initial setting : YES If you connect a sub woofer, select "YES". If you do not connect a sub woofer, select "NO". This activates the bass redirection circuitry and outputs the LFE signals from other speakers. In order to take full advantage of the bass redirection circuitry, we recommend setting the sub woofer's cut off frequency as high as possible.

p Sub woofer distance S.W XX.X meter Initial setting : 5.0 meter Set the distance from your listening position to the sub woofer. Sub woofer distance can be set in 0.1 meter (1 foot) steps from 1.0 to 12.0 meters (3 to 40 feet).

p Sub woofer phase polarity S.W PHASE [NORMAL] Initial setting : NORMAL Set the sub woofer phase polarity. There is usually no problem when the sub woofer phase polarity is set to "NORMAL". However, depending on the type of front speakers, the position of the sub woofer, and the cut-off frequency of the sub woofer, setting the phase polarity to "REVERSE" may produce better bass. Besides bass reproduction, the richness and tightness of the overall sound may also be affected. While listening from the main listening position, select the setting that best suits your environment. p Rear speaker position* REAR POSI [BEHIND] Initial setting : BEHIND This parameter lets you specify the location of your rear speakers for proper implementation of the Digital Cinema Sound "VIRTUAL" sound fields. Refer to the illustration below. Select "SIDE" if the location of your rear speakers corresponds to section A. Select "MIDDLE" if the location of your rear speakers corresponds to section B. Select "BEHIND" if the location of your rear speakers corresponds to section C. This setting only effects the "VIRTUAL" sound fields.

p Rear speaker height* REAR HEIGHT [LOW] Initial setting : LOW This parameter lets you specify the height of your rear speakers for proper implementation of the Digital Cinema Sound "VIRTUAL" sound fields. Refer to the illustration below. Select "LOW" if the location of your rear speakers corresponds to section A. Select "HIGH" if the location of your rear speakers corresponds to section B.

Enjoying Surround Sound
This chapter describes how to set up the amplifier to enjoy surround sound. You can enjoy multi channel surround when playing back software encoded with Dolby Digital or DTS.

You can take advantage of surround sound simply by selecting one of the amplifier's pre-programmed sound modes. They bring the exciting and powerful sound of movie theaters and concert halls into your home. You can also customize the sound modes to obtain the sound you desire by changing the various surround parameters. The amplifier contains a variety of different sound modes. The cinema sound modes are designed for use when playing back movie software (DVD, LD, etc.) encoded with multi channel surround sound or Dolby Pro Logic. In addition to decoding the surround sound, some of these modes also provide sound effects commonly found in movie theaters. The virtual sound modes contain compelling applications of the Sony Digital Cinema Sound digital signal processing technology. They shift the sound away from the actual speaker locations to simulate the presence of several "virtual" speakers. The music (etc.) sound modes are designed for use with standard audio sources and TV broadcasts. They add reverberation to the source signal to make you feel as if you were in a concert hall or stadium (etc.). Use these sound modes with two-channel sources like CD and stereo broadcasts of sports programs or musical concerts. For more information about the sound modes, see pages 28~30. A.F.D. The "Auto Format Decoding" sound mode presents the sound exactly as it was encoded, without adding any reverberation (etc.). To fully enjoy surround sound, you must register the number and location of you speakers. See "Multi Channel Surround Setup" starting on page 16 to set the speaker parameters before enjoying surround sound.
