On heat buildup
Although the system heats up during operation, this is
not a malfunction. If you continuously use this system
at a large volume, the system temperature of the back
and bottom rises considerably. To avoid burning
yourself, do not touch the system.

On placement
• Place the system in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat buildup and prolong the
life of the system.
• Do not place the system near heat sources, or in a
place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust, or
mechanical shock.
• Do not place anything under the speakers that might
block the ventilation holes and cause malfunctions.
• Do not place the system near equi pment such as a TV,
VCR, or tape deck. (If the system is being used in
combination with a TV, VCR, or tape deck, and is
placed too close to that equipment, noise may result,
and picture quality may suffer. This is especially
likely when using an indoor antenna. Therefore, we
recommend using an outdoor antenna.)

A method of converting analog audio to digital

S-Force PRO Front Surround
Sony's long-term involvement in surround
technology (and the vast amounts of acoustic
data accumulated as a result) has led to the
development of all-new processing method and
advanced DSP to handle this task effectively,
which we call S-Force PRO Front Surround.
Compared with previous front surround
technologies, S-Force PRO Front Surround
reproduces a more convincing sense of distance
and space, resulting in a true surround sound
experience without the need for rear speakers.
S-Master
S-Master is an all-digital amplifier technology
developed by Sony, which effectively minimizes
the occurrence of sound fragmentation and jitter,
delivering superb dialog clarity and faithful
reproduction of the original sound. The compact
