DVD Video regions

All DVD Video discs carry a region mark on the case somewhere that indicates which region(s) of the world the disc is compatible with. Your DVD player also has a region mark, which you can find on the rear panel. Discs from incompatible regions will not play in this player. Discs marked ALL will play in any player.

MP3 compatibility information

The CD-ROM must be ISO 9660 compatible.

Files should be MPEG1 Audio Layer 3 format, 44.1 or 48kHz. Incompatible files will not play and “UNPLAYABLE MP3 FORMAT” will be displayed.

Not compatible with some variable bit-rate (VBR) files.

VBR files may not show play times correctly.

This player only plays tracks that are named with the file extension “.mp3” or “.MP3”.

This player is not compatible with multi-session discs. If you try and play a multi-session disc, only the first session will be played.

Use CD-R or CD-RW media for recording your MP3 files. The disc must be finalized in order to play.

Audio encoded at 128Kbps should sound close to regular audio CD quality. Although this player will play lower bit-rate MP3 tracks, the sound quality becomes noticeably worse at lower bit-rates.

Only the first 8 characters of folder and track names (excluding the “.mp3” extension) are displayed.

This player can recognize a maximum of 250 folders and 250 tracks. Discs containing more than 250 folders or tracks will play, but only the first 250 folders/tracks.

Caution!

DVD-R/RW and CD-R/RW discs recorded using a personal computer or a DVD or CD recorder may not play if the disc is damaged or dirty, or if there is dirt or condensation on the player’s lens.

If you record a disc using a personal computer, even if it is recorded in a compatible format, there are cases in which it may not play because of the settings of the application software used to create the disc. (Check with the software publisher for more detailed information.)

Unfinalized DVD-R/RW discs cannot be played.

Unfinalized CD-R/RW discs can be played, but not all time information (playing time, etc.) will be displayed.

3 Connect to the coaxial or optical input of your amplifier, if it has digital inputs.

Connecting analog audio cables

Be sure to fully insert each plug for the best connection. The plugs and jacks are colourcoded to make connection easier.

Connecting optical cables

Optical interconnects only plug in one way, so make sure the plug is

correctly lined up with the jack before insert-

ing. When inserting the plug, the protective

shutter will open and you should hear it click into position when fully inserted. Be careful that you do not force the plug, because this could result in damage to the

protective shutter, the cable, or the unit itself.

4 Plug into a standard AC wall outlet.

Connecting coaxial cables

Use an interconnect with a pin-type (also

 

called RCA or phono)

 

plug on each end to

COAX

connect up digital

 

coaxial-type jacks.

 

Make sure that the

 

plug is pushed fully

 

home.

 

Note

If you listen to multichannel DVD-Audio through one of the digital outputs, it will be downmixed to stereo. Also, high sampling rate DVD-Audio (192kHz or 176.4kHz) will be downsampled to 96kHz, 88.2kHz, 48kHz or 44.1kHz, depending on the disc. Multi channel and high sampling rate DVD-Audio is only available through the analog outputs.

Some DVD-Audio and all SACD audio is output only through the analog outputs.

Using repeat play

You can set the player to repeat individual tracks on CDs or VideoCDs, chapters/tracks or titles/group on DVD discs, or the whole disc. It's also possible to loop a section of a disc.

You can use the repeat together with the programming mode to repeat the tracks/chapters in the program list (see page 27 for how to make a program list).

You can’t use any repeat mode or looped play with a Video CD playing in PBC mode.

Looped playback is not possible with SACD.

Note

You can’t use repeat and random play at the same time.

If you switch camera angle during repeat play, repeat play is cancelled.

Each press switches the repeat mode:

Repeat Chapter/Track

Repeat Title/Group

Repeat Off

Repeat Track

Repeat All

2To resume normal playback, press CLEAR.

Tip

You can use repeat play with program play. During program play, press

REPEAT.

Looping a section of a disc

1Press (REPEAT) A-B once at the start of the section you want to repeat, then again at the end.

Playback immediately jumps back to the start point and plays the loop round and round.

On a DVD disc, the start and end points of the loop must be in the same title/group.

2To resume normal playback, press CLEAR.

You can also repeat a section of a disc just once by pressing 3to mark the end point (instead of A-B).

Playing Discs

Bookmarking a place in a disc (LAST MEMORY)

If you watch only part of a DVD Video disc with the intention of picking up later where you left off, you can bookmark the place then resume playback at a later date without having to manually search for the right place.

You can use this feature for up to five discs (after that the oldest bookmark is deleted to make space for a new one).

Bookmarking also works with Video CDs, but for one disc only, and you must leave the disc in the player—opening the disc tray erases the memory. Last Memory may not work reliably with some PBC Video CDs.

You can’t use bookmarking with DVD-Audio and DVD-RW discs. Depending on the disc, you may not be able to use bookmarking with DVD-Video or Video CD discs.

At the point from which you want to resume playback next time, press LAST MEMO.

Press 7if you want to stop playback here.

To resume playback, load the disc and press LAST MEMO.

If the disc starts auto playback, stop it first.

To clear the bookmark for the disc loaded, press LAST MEMO then CLEAR while ‘Last Memory’ is displayed on-screen.

Memorizing disc settings (CONDITION MEMORY)

If you have a particular set of preferences for a disc, you can memorize them using the Condition Memory function. Once memorized, your settings will be recalled automatically whenever you load that disc. The player can store settings for 15 discs; after this, memorizing another replaces the oldest one stored.

Condition Memory does not work with DVD-Audio and DVD-RW discs.

The settings memorized are:

Multi-Angle (page 25)

Subtitle Language (page 25)

Audio Language (page 26)

On Screen Display (page 40)

Audio DRC

• Default setting: Off

When watching Dolby Digital DVDs at low volume, it’s easy to lose the low level sounds completely— including some of the dialog. Switching on Audio DRC (Dynamic Range Control) can help things by bringing up the low level sounds, while keeping the lid on high level peaks.

The Off setting leaves the original dynamics intact; On ‘squashes’ the dynamics; but exactly how much difference you can hear between the settings will depend on the material you’re watching.

Linear PCM Out

• Default setting: Down Sample On

You only need to make this setting if you connected the player to another component (AV amplifier, etc.) using one of the digital outputs.

If your AV amplifier (or other connected component) is compatible with high sampling rates (96 kHz), set this to Down Sample Off, otherwise set it to Down Sample On (96 kHz audio is converted to a more compatible 48 kHz). Check the manual that came with the other component if you’re unsure whether it is 96 kHz compatible.

About source audio output

Note

Even if you set Audio Out to 5.1 Channel, you’ll only get sound from all speakers when playing a multi-channel DVD-Audio disc, or Dolby Digital, DTS or MPEG encoded DVD disc.

If you set to 2 Channel, Dolby Digital, DTS and MPEG audio is mixed down to two channels so you still hear all the audio recorded on the disc.

Some DVD-Audio discs don’t allow down-mixing of audio. These discs always output multi-channel audio regardless of the setting made here.

When the source output mode has been switched between the 5.1 Channel and 2 Channel mode settings using the Audio Out setting in the Setup screen Audio 2 menu, audio output for each source will be as shown on the following table.

Note

When listening to a DVD audio source, the C, LS, and RS speakers will automatically be set to the Large size setting. However, the sound will not be affected by the change. Listening to another source will return the speakers to their original settings.

For DVD-Audio only, if the C, LS, or RS speakers is set to Off, the audio is automatically downmixed to stereo.

The graphic on the right of the screen represents your speaker setup, with the currently selected speaker’s name highlighted in blue, and the speakers set to On highlighted in yellow.

Set the distance from your main listening position to each speaker in the Distance screen. The distance setting for any speaker that was set to Off in the Size screen will be grayed out. For the other speakers, enter the distance to the nearest 0.1m (10cm). You can set the distance for the L/R speakers between 0.3m and 9m. Note that you must set the C and SW speakers within 2m of the L/R setting. The LS and RS speakers must be set within -6m and +2m of the L/R setting. The graphic on the right of the screen represents your speaker setup, with the currently selected speaker’s name highlighted in blue, and the speakers set to On highlighted in yellow.

Note

If your subwoofer is placed beyond the adjustment range (L/R±2m), set to the nearest

setting possible. Surround sound cohesion should not be affected very much.

This setting does not apply to SACD playback.

Gain Settings

• Default setting: Fix

You may want to make this setting if you connected this player to your amplifier using the 5.1 channel analog outputs.

Under the default setting, all channels are output at the relative volumes they were recorded at. Change the setting to Variable if you want to adjust the relative volume levels of any of the speakers. Adjustment is in the range of -6dB to +6dB, in steps of 0.5dB.

When set to Variable, the overall output level may sound quieter than when set to Fix. This is not a malfunction.

Gain settings are not effective when playing a CD with

Follow the on-screen displays to select speakers and set the channel levels.

You can adjust the Test Tone setting only when the player is stopped.

Many AV amplifiers allow you to make similar settings at the amplifier stage. In this case, set the channel levels at the player or the amplifier, not both.

Set in Setup Navigator (Default: 16:9 (Wide))

If you have a widescreen TV, select the 16:9 (Wide) setting—widescreen DVD software is then shown using the full screen area. When playing software recorded in conventional (4:3) format, the settings on your TV will determine how the material is presented—see the manual that came with your TV for details on what options are available. If your TV does not have settings for how 4:3 sources look, choose the 16:9(Compressed) setting. The picture you see on your TV will be determined by the disc. See page 68 for more information.

If you have a conventional TV, choose either 4:3 (Letter Box) or 4:3 (Pan & Scan). In Letter Box mode, widescreen software is shown with black bars at the top and bottom of the screen. Pan & Scan chops the sides off widescreen material to make it fit the 4:3 screen (so even though the picture looks larger on the screen, you’re actually seeing less of the movie).

Progressive – Use this setting with TVs and monitors that have progressive scan component video inputs. Check the TV’s instruction manual if you are not sure about this.

Interlace – (default setting) use this setting with regular TVs that are not compatible with progressive scan. Check the TV’s instruction manual if you are not sure about this.

Tip

If this player is set to output progressive-scan video, it’s possible that the picture will appear stretched when playing discs recorded in 4:3 format. This happens when the TV’s aspect ratio is set ‘Full’. To see the picture in its correct aspect ratio, change the TV setting to ‘Normal’.

If your TV doesn’t have settings to change the aspect ratio of the picture, set this player to

16:9(Compressed).

Note

If you connect a TV that is not compatible with a progressive scan signal and choose one of the progressive scan settings, you will not be able to see any picture at all. With your TV connected using either the composite or S-Video terminals, choose the Interlace setting in the Component Video menu.

Some DVD Video discs feature a Parental Lock level. If your player is set to a lower level than the disc, it will require you to enter a password before the disc will play. This gives you some control about what your children watch on your DVD player.

Some discs also support the Country Code feature. The player does not play certain scenes on these discs, depending on the country code you set.

Before you can set the Parental Lock level or the Country Code you must register a password. As the password owner, you can change the Parental Lock level or Country Code whenever you like. You can also change the password.

Handling discs

When holding discs of any type, take care not to leave fingerprints, dirt or scratches on the disc surface. Hold the disc by its edge or by the center hole and edge.

Damaged or dirty discs can affect playback performance. Take care also not to scratch the label side of the disc. Although not as fragile as the recorded side, scratches can still result in a disc becoming unusable.

Should a disc become marked with fingerprints, dust, etc., clean using a soft, dry cloth, wiping the disc lightly from the center to the outside edge as shown in the diagram below.

Wipe lightly from the

Don’t wipe the disc surface

center of the disc using

using circular strokes.

straight strokes.

 

If necessary, use a cloth soaked in alcohol, or a commercially available CD/DVD cleaning kit to clean a disc more thoroughly. Never use benzine, thinner or other cleaning agents, including products designed for cleaning vinyl records.

Storing discs

Although CDs and DVD discs are more durable than vinyl records, you should still take care to handle and store discs correctly. When you're not using a disc, return it to its case and store upright. Avoid leaving discs in excessively cold, humid, or hot environments (including under direct sunlight).

Don't glue paper or put stickers onto the disc, or use a pencil, ball-point pen or other sharp-tipped writing instrument. These could all damage the disc.

For more detailed care information see the instructions that come with discs.

Do not load more than one disc into the player.

Discs to avoid

Discs spin at high speed inside the player. If you can see that a disc is cracked, chipped, warped, or otherwise damaged, don't risk using it in your player—you could end up damaging the unit.

This unit is designed for use with conventional, fully circular discs only. Use of shaped discs is not recommended for this product.

Cleaning the pickup lens

The DVD player’s lens should not become dirty in normal use, but if for some reason it should malfunction due to dust or dirt, consult your nearest MARANTZ-authorized service center. Although lens cleaners for CD players are commercially available, we do not recommend using them since some may damage the lens.

Problems with condensation

Condensation may form inside the player if it is brought into a warm room from outside, or if the temperature of the room rises quickly. Although the condensation won’t damage the player, it may temporarily impair its performance. For this reason you should leave it to adjust to the warmer temperature for about an hour before switching on and using.

58

Additional Information

Hints on installation

We want you to enjoy using this unit for years to come, so please bear in mind the following points when choosing a suitable location for it:

Do...

Use in a well-ventilated room.

Place on a solid, flat, level surface, such as a table, shelf or stereo rack.

Don’t...

Use in a place exposed to high temperatures or humidity, including near radiators and other heatgenerating appliances.

Place on a window sill or other place where the player will be exposed to direct sunlight.

Use in an excessively dusty or damp environment.

Place directly on top of an amplifier, or other component in your stereo system that becomes hot in use.

Use near a television or monitor as you may experience interference—especially if the television uses an indoor antenna.

Use in a kitchen or other room where the player may be exposed to smoke or steam.

Use on a thick rug or carpet, or cover with cloth— this may prevent proper cooling of the unit.

Place on an unstable surface, or one that is not large enough to support all four of the unit’s feet.

Moving the player

If you need to move the player, first press POWER ON/OFF button on the front panel to turn the player off, then unplug the power cord. Never lift or move the unit during playback—discs rotate at a high speed and may be damaged.

Power cord caution

Handle the power cord by the plug part. Do not pull out the plug by tugging the cord, and never touch the power cord when your hands are wet, as this could cause a short circuit or electric shock. Do not place the unit, a piece of furniture, or other object on the power cord or pinch the cord in any other way. Never make a knot in the cord or tie it with other cords. The power cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be stepped on. A damaged power cord can cause a fire or give you an electric shock. Check the power cord once in a while. If you find it damaged, ask your nearest MARANTZ authorized service center or your dealer for a replacement.

Glossary

Analog audio

An electrical signal that directly represents sound. Compare this to digital audio which can be an electrical signal, but is an indirect representation of sound. See also Digital audio.

Aspect ratio

The width of a TV screen relative to its height. Conventional TVs are 4:3 (in other words, the screen is almost square); widescreen models are 16:9 (the screen is almost twice as wide as it is high).

Bonus Group (DVD-Audio only)

An ‘extra’ group on some DVD-Audio discs that requires a key number to access. See also Group.

Browsable pictures (DVD-Audio only)

A feature of some DVD-Audio discs in which the user can browse still pictures recorded on the disc as the audio is played. See also Slideshow.

Chapter (DVD-Video, DVD-RW)

Just as a book is split up into several chapters, a title on a DVD disc is usually divided into chapters. See also Title.

Digital audio

An indirect representation of sound by numbers. During recording, the sound is measured at discrete intervals (44,100 times a second for CD audio) by an analog-to-digital converter, generating a stream of numbers. On playback, a digital-to- analog converter generates an analog signal based on these numbers. See also Sampling frequency and

Analog audio.

Dolby Digital

1

Using a maximum of 5.1 channels of audio, this high quality surround system is used in many of the finer movie theaters around the world.

DTS

R

DTS stands for Digital Theater System. DTS is a surround system different from Dolby Digital that has become a popular surround sound format for movies.

Dynamic range

The difference between the quietest and loudest sounds possible in an audio signal (without distorting or getting lost in noise). Dolby Digital and DTS soundtracks are capable of a very wide dynamic range, delivering dramatic cinema-like effects.

File extension

A tag added to the end of a filename to indicate the type of file. For example, “.mp3” indicates an MP3 file.

Group (DVD-Audio only)

A collection of tracks on a DVD-Audio disc. Equivalent to a DVD-Video title. See also Title and

Track.

Interlaced video

A method of displaying a picture in which oddnumbered lines are updated in one pass, then even-numbered lines updated in the next. See also

Progressive scan video.

MP3

MP3 (MPEG1 audio layer 3) is a compressed audio file format. Files are recognized by their file extension “.mp3” or “.MP3”.

MPEG audio

An audio format used on Video CDs and some DVD discs. This unit can convert MPEG audio to PCM format for wider compatibility with digital recorders and AV amplifiers. See also PCM.

60

Additional Information

MPEG video

The video format used for Video CDs and DVDs. Video CDs uses the older MPEG-1 standard, while DVD uses the newer and much better quality MPEG-2 standard.

Multi-session

A CD-R/RW that contains two or more ‘sessions’. Each session is a complete recording process, so each session is read as a complete disc. This player can only read the first session on a disc.

Optical digital output

A jack that outputs digital audio in the form of light pulses. Connect components with optical digital jacks using a special optical cord, available from good audio dealers.

Packed PCM (DVD-Audio only)

A lossless compression system that enables more PCM audio to be stored on a DVD-Audio disc than would otherwise be possible.

PCM (Pulse Code Modulation)

The most common system of encoding digital audio, found on CDs and DAT. Excellent quality, but requires a lot of data compared to formats such as Dolby Digital and MPEG audio. For compatibility with digital audio recorders (CD, MD and DAT) and AV amplifiers with digital inputs, this unit can convert Dolby Digital, DTS and MPEG audio to PCM. See also Digital audio.

PBC (PlayBack Control) (Video CD only)

A system of navigating a Video CD through onscreen menus recorded onto the disc. Especially good for discs that you would normally not watch from beginning to end all at once—karaoke discs, for example.

Progressive scan video

Also called non-interlaced video, this method of displaying a picture updates all the lines in one pass, resulting in a more stable, flicker-free image than interlaced video (for a given scanning rate). See also Interlaced video.

PureCinema (DVD-Video only)

Video on a DVD discs may be either video material (originally shot on video) or film material (originally shot on film). Video material has a frame rate of 30 frames/sec.(NTSC), compared with 24 frames/sec. for film. This player converts film material to 60 frames/sec. (in progressive scan mode). PureCinema adjusts the picture so that it matches more closely the picture quality of a cinema screen.

You can see whether video on a DVD disc is film or video material by displaying the video transmission rate (see page 34). If a hash mark (#) appears above the transmission rate display, it is film material.

Regions (DVD-Video only)

These associate discs and players with particular areas of the world. This unit will only play discs that have compatible region codes. You can find the region code of your unit by looking on the rear panel. Some discs are compatible with more than one region (or all regions).

Sampling frequency

The rate at which sound is measured to be turned into digital audio data. The higher the rate, the better the sound quality, but the more digital information is generated. Standard CD audio has a sampling frequency of 44.1kHz, which means 44,100 samples (measurements) per second. See also Digital audio.

Slideshow (DVD, Video CD)

A feature of some DVD discs in which still pictures recorded on the disc cycle automatically as the audio is played. See also Browsable pictures.

Title (DVD-Video only)

A collection of chapters on a DVD-Video disc. Equivalent to a DVD-Audio group. See also

Chapter and Group.

Track

Audio CDs, Video CDs and DVD-Audio discs all use tracks to divide up the content of a disc. The DVD-Video equivalent is called a chapter. See also

The disc containing the MP3 tracks won’t play.

If the disc is a recordable CD, make sure that the disc is finalized. If the message ‘UNPLAYABLE MP3 FORMAT’ is displayed when you try to play a disc/track:

Check that the track(s) are in the MPEG1 Audio Layer 3 format.

Check that the sampling rate of the track(s) are 44.1 or 48kHz.

Some MP3 tracks appear to be missing from a disc.

If a track name does not end in “.mp3” or “.MP3”, this player will not recognize it as an MP3 track.

This player only recognizes the first 250 folders and tracks on a disc. If there are more folders/tracks than this, you will not be able to play them.

This player is not compatible with multi-session discs. If the disc is multi-session, you will only be able to play tracks recorded onto the first session.

Can’t perform frame search, or the frame number is not displayed

Check that the Frame Search option is set to On (page 47).

You can only use frame search with DVD-Video discs.

Frame numbers are only displayed with DVD-Video discs, and only when the disc is paused or during frame advance/reverse.

Frame search doesn’t find the frame number input, or some frames are skipped when using frame advance.

You may experience this with discs recorded in 24 frames/ second progressive scan format. With these discs, the player ‘misses’ one frame every six frames. For this reason, the frame numbers do not appear continuous when using frame advance, and it may not be possible to display the exact frame you searched for. The player does not actually drop any frames that are recorded on the disc, however.

8Additional Information

Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you’ve just purchased is only the start of your musical enjoyment. Now it’s time to consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement your equipment offers. This manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics Group want you to get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that lets the sound come through loud and clear without annoying blaring or distortion-and, most importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing.

Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level” adapts to higher volumes of sound. So what sounds “normal” can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing adapts.

To establish a safe level:

Start your volume control at a low setting.

Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and without distortion.

Once you have established a comfortable sound level:

• Set the dial and leave it there.

Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage or loss in the future. After all, we want you listening for a lifetime.

We Want You Listening For A Lifetime

Used wisely, your new sound equipment will provide a lifetime of fun and enjoyment. Since hearing damage from loud noise is often undetectable until it is too late, this manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics Group recommend you avoid prolonged exposure to excessive noise. This list of sound levels is included for your protection.

Decibel

 

Level

Example
