Before You Start

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.

For more information on using DVD-R/RW and CD-R/RW discs, see Handling discs starting on page 58.

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.
