Digital Cinema Sound: This is a collaboration between Sony Electronics and Sony Pictures where the actual measurements of the sound acoustics in certain studios are taken.

  • Cinema Studio Ex. A: reproduces the sound characteristics of Sony's "Cary Grant Theater" cinema production studio
  • Cinema Studio Ex. B: reproduces the sound characteristics of Sony's "Kim Novak Theater" cinema production studio
  • Cinema Studio Ex. C: reproduces the sound characteristics of Sony's scoring stage

Surround Modes: This receiver incorporates a wide variety of surround modes to bring you maximum enjoyment from your video software and music sources. The surround modes include:

  • Dolby Digital
  • Dolby Pro Logic II
    • Dolby Pro Logic
    • Pro Logic II Movie
    • Pro Logic II Music
  • DTS
  • Cinema Studio Ex. A
  • Cinema Studio Ex. B

  • Hall
  • Jazz (Jazz Club)

A.F.D (Auto Format Direct): This feature automatically detects the type of audio signal being input (Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Pro Logic II, 2 channel stereo) and performs the proper decoding without adding any effects.

Sleep Timer: The unit may be set to automatically turn off after 2 hours, 1 hour and 30 minutes, 1 hour, or 30 minutes.

Station and Source Naming: Each preset station and program source may be given an index name of up to 8 characters. For example, two VCRs can be displayed as 8MM and VHS.

RM-U755 Remote: The supplied receiver remote is pre-coded to control Sony A/V equipment, including VCRs, DVDs, Minidiscs, Tape decks, CDs or Tuners. It has a joystick control for easy navigation through the various menus.

Speaker System

Satellite Speakers: The speaker system consists of two SS-MSP760 front satellite speakers, two SS-MSP760S rear satellite speakers, and a matching SS-CNP760 center channel speaker. Each speaker has a 3.15" full-range driver. The rear-mounted spring clip terminals on each speaker will accept bare wire and pin connectors. Each enclosure is covered by a non-removable gray cloth grille. Speaker wire is included.

Mounting: The M5 threaded female inserts on the back of the satellite speakers allow them to be mounted using optional brackets or stands. If you do not wish to mount the speakers on the wall or stand, you can place them on any flat surface using the supplied self-adhesive foot pads.

Subwoofer Driver and Enclosure: The SA-WMSP76 has an 7-7/8" front-firing woofer powered by a 100-watt amplifier. For extended bass response, the woofer is loaded in a bass-reflex enclosure with a front-firing port. A subwoofer cable is included.

Subwoofer Controls: A front-mounted level control on the front of the subwoofer allows you to match the output of the subwoofer to the rest of your system. The power button is located next to the level control.

Video-shielded: The front satellites, center channel speaker and subwoofer are video-shielded, allowing them to be placed near your television without causing picture distortion. The rear satellites are not video shielded.
