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, 44.1kHz or 48kHz. Incompatible files will not play.

This player is not compatible with MP3 PRO, ID3-Tag and packet write.

When using a variable bit rate, files may be played back at speeds between 32Kbps and 320Kbps.

This player cannot play DVD-R/RW discs with recorded MP3 music data.

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 about total 600 files/ folder.

While this player is designed to be able to handle image data recorded in JPEG format, no assurances are given that the player will be able to display image data recorded in all JPEG formats.

Display is limited to the display of files up to 30MB in size.

This player cannot display progressive JPEG images.

When writing JPEG files to CD-R/RW discs, always be sure to set the writing format to ISO 9660 Level 1.

Always be sure to specify a file extension of “.JPG” or “.JPE” for JPEG files. The file will not be able to be displayed if a file extension other than “.JPG” or “.JPE” is specified or if no file extension is assigned to the file. (Note that this means that JPEG files created on a Macintosh will not be able to be displayed as is.)

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 cannot be played.

For more information on using DVD-R/RW and CD-R/RW discs, see “Handling discs” on page 55.

Never try to replay anything other than a music CD (CDA format) or a CD-R/RW on which MP3 and/or JPEG files have been stored. Depending on the type of file, there may be times when doing so will result in problems or erroneous operation.

There may be times when it is impossible to replay a CD-R/RW disc because of the characteristics of the disc being used or because of dirt or scratches on the disc.

S-Video or composite video?

S-Video should give a better picture, so if you have an S-Video input, use it. S-Video cables are available from any good audio/ visual dealer.

Connecting HDMI cables

With an HDMI cable, both uncompressed video data and digital audio data (e.g., LPCM or bit stream data such as Dolby Digital, DTS, or MPEG data) can be transmitted with just a single connector.

By transmitting DVD image data directly as digital data without it being first converted into analog format, it becomes possible to provide the very finest in image quality (see pages 32, 52).

Note

The HDMI output of this unit can be connected to a DVI jack on a TV or other device using a conversion adapter. In this case, it is necessary to use a TV or display with an HDCP-compat- ible DVI input. (see page 52)

There may be no image output if connected to a TV or display that is not compatible with the above format.

Refer to the instruction manual of the TV or display to be connected to this unit for detailed information regarding the HDMI terminal.

When connecting a progressive input TV with the component output of the player, select Progressive in the Components Out setting (see page 47).

Audio Out

• Default setting: 2 Channel

If you connected this player to your amplifier using the 5.1 channel analog outputs (front, surround, center and subwoofer outs), set this to 5.1 Channel; if you connected only the stereo outputs, set to 2 Channel.

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, multichannel Super Audio CD disc, Dolby Digital or DTS encoded DVD disc.

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

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

Sound recorded on MPEG is outputted on 2 channel even if Audio Out is set to 5.1 CH.

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 Setup 1 menu, audio output for each source will be as shown in the following table.

Speaker Size

Default setting: Front L/R: Large | Center: Large | LFE: On | Surround L/R: Large

You only need to make this setting if you connected this player to your amplifier using the 5.1 channel analog outputs. This setting does not affect digital audio output.

Follow the on-screen displays to describe which speakers are in your system and their sizes and positions.

Set the size of your speakers in the Speaker Size screen. The front left/right (L/R), center (C) and surround left/right (LS/RS) speakers can each be set to Large, Small or Off. Set a speaker to Large if the main speaker cone is 12cm or more; set to Small if it’s less than 12cm.

The subwoofer (LFE) can only be set to On or

Off.

The graphic of the screen represents your speaker setup, with the currently selected speaker’s name highlighted in yellow.

Press ENTER

Cursor buttons (2/3): Speaker Change

Cursor buttons (5/): Size Change

Note

Selecting Initial from on-screen will cause all settings to return to their default settings.

For DVD-Audio and DTS-CD, if the C, LS or RS speakers is set to Off, the audio is automatically down mixed to stereo.

Distance

• Default setting: Unit: Feet | Distance: 10 feet

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 Speaker Size screen will be disappeared. For the other speakers, enter the distance to the nearest 1 feet (0.3m). You can set the distance for the L/R speakers between 1.0 feet (0.3m) and 40 feet (12m). Note that you must set the C and SW speakers within 15 feet (4.5m) of the L/R setting. The LS and RS speakers must be set within –15 feet (–4.5m) and +15 feet (+4.5m) of the L/R setting.

The graphic of the screen represents your speaker setup, with the currently selected speaker’s name highlighted in yellow.

Press ENTER

Level

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

Press ENTER

Press ENTER

Cursor buttons (2/3): Speaker Change

(at manual test tone)

Cursor buttons (5/): Output Level

Change

To help you gauge the correct gain levels, set the Test Tone to Manual (test tone from just that speaker) or Auto (test tone from each speaker in turn), then adjust the gain so that all speakers appear to be the same volume from your listening position.

Follow the on-screen displays to select speakers and set the Output Levels.

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

As the test tone plays through a speaker, its name is highlighted in yellow on-screen.

Remember

You can't use the test tone function when the

Audio Out setting is 2 Channel (see page 39). The test tone will not work with the disc tray open, or while a disc is playing.

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 Compression) 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.

When TruSurround is On, the audio can be output only for the L/R channels on the Front.

SRS TruSurround

SRS TruSurround uses technology that simulates multichannel surround sound using only two speakers.

Remember

Audio DRC is only effective with Dolby Digital audio sources.

The effect of Audio DRC depends on your speakers and AV amplifier settings.

TruSurround

• Default setting: Off

If you connected your DVD player using only the stereo analog outputs and set Audio Out to 2 Channel (page 39), you can simulate surround sound by setting TruSurround to On.

Note

Works with DVD-Video and VCD only.

The digital audio output is processed by TruSurround when playing 2 channel Dolby Digital DVDs or Video CDs with TruSurround On. It is recommended that TruSurround be turned Off when connecting the player to your amp using a coaxial or optical connection.

How good the surround effect is varies with the disc.

Super Audio CD Play

• Default setting: DSD

Either DSD or PCM is selected using the cursor button (2/3).

• DSD

DSD that is the original format of Super Audio CD plays. It is not possible to set the Distance in the speaker settings.

• PCM

DSD signals are played converted to PCM. It is possible to set the Distance in the speaker settings.

TV Aspect

• Default setting: 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 Squeeze

 

setting. The picture you see on your TV will be

 

determined by the disc. See page 46 for more

 

information.

 

If you have a conventional TV, choose either 4:3 L-

 

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).

Some discs will not allow you to change the aspect ratio.

Components Out

• Default setting: Interlace

Compared to a standard interlaced TV picture, a progressive scan TV is capable of stable, flickerfree images.

Set only if you connected the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT to a progressive scan-compatible TV or monitor.

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 – 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 to ‘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 Squeeze.

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.

Compatibility of this unit with progressive-scan TVs:

Note that not all high definition television sets are fully compatible with this unit and may cause artifacts to be displayed in the picture. In case of progressive scan picture problems, try switching the connection to the “STANDARD DEFINITION” output.

Pause Mode

• Default setting: Auto

The player uses one of two processes when displaying a still frame from a DVD disc. The default Auto setting automatically chooses the best setting each time.

Field – produces a stable, generally shake-free image.

Frame – produces a sharper image, but more prone to shake than field stills.

If a constant image is displayed on a conventional CRT-type TV, it can “burn in” leaving a ghost image on the screen. Switch to On to make sure that a constant image is not displayed for a dangerously long time.

TV System

• Default setting: Multi

The default setting of this player is Multi, and unless you notice that the picture is distorted when playing some discs, you should leave it set to Multi.

If you experience picture distortion with some discs, set the TV system to match your country or region’s system. Doing this, however, may restrict the kinds of disc you can watch. The table below shows what kinds of disc are compatible with each setting (Multi, PAL and NTSC).

Shrink

Most models of the newly developed countdown PAL TV system detect 50 Hz (PAL)/60 Hz (NTSC) and automatically switch vertical amplitude, resulting in a display without vertical shrinkage.

If your PAL TV does not have a V-Hold control, you may not be able to view NTSC discs, because the picture may roll. If the TV has a V- Hold control, adjust it until the picture stops rolling. On some TVs, the picture may shrink vertically, leaving black bands at the top and bottom of the screen. This is not a malfunction; it is caused by the NTSC to PAL conversion.

Note

When the selected format is changed to a different format from the TV format in which a program was recorded, the picture may become jerky and the upper and lower parts of the screen may disappear. The above setting should be specified to match the format of your own TV.

Changes can be made only in the Stop mode. When RESUME is indicated on the display, put the player in the Stop mode by repressing

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

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

English

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.

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 heat-generating 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.

HDCP

HDCP is the acronym for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection.

It is an encrypting method for DVI-use images and its purpose is the protection of image content against illegal copying. Receiving the encrypted signals requires a display with HDCP-compatible DVI input.

HDMI

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is an interface that expands DVI for next-generation digital audiovisual devices.

HDMI terminals can simultaneously transmit uncompressed digital images and the digital audio signals of Dolby Digital DTS, Linear PCM, etc.

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 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.

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.
