1Before You Start

Features

An HDCP-compatible HDMI*1 terminal is provided to ensure the very highest picture and digital sound quality by fully digital transmission.

This unit is equipped with an HDCP-compat- ible digital image output terminal (HDMI) to provide copyright protection.

Direct digital transmission without analog conversion of DVD image data makes it possible to enjoy real-life images without any image deterioration resulting from AD/ DA conversion. The unit has also been designed to make it possible to handle the transmission of both digital video and digital audio with a single connector.

High quality 14-bit/216MHz Video D/A converter*2

The unit uses a Video D/A converter that performs D/A conversion of all video signals in 14-bits and can perform 8X over-sampling to let you enjoy beautiful video possible with DVD. Furthermore, NSV technology suppresses noise during DA conversion.

dts 96kHz/24 bit compatibility

It is equipped with a dts 96/24 decoder that lets you enjoy dts audio with sound quality as high as 96kHz/24bit. This product does not support dts 88.2kHz/24bit.

Dolby Headphone compatibility

It is the world’s first single DVD Player equipped with a Dolby Head Phone.

The Head Phone can reproduce the world of Dolby Surround with realistic ambience like that you would experience using a 5.1 ch system (Excluding Super Audio CD) (see page 13).

Lip Sync capability

When it is connected to a plasma display or projector, it corrects the time lag between the video and audio created by the video circuit processing time in units of 10msec up to a maximum of 200msec. It precisely synchronizes the actors’ voices and the

6movements of their mouths (see page 31).

Equipped with a Super Audio CD Distance compensation function

It can perform Distance adjustment of Super Audio CD that was formerly impossible by converting it to PCM (see page 44).

Superlative audio performance with Super Audio CD, DVD-Audio, Dolby*3 Digital and DTS*4 software

Logos: 1 R

The DV9500 delivers breathtaking sound quality with Super Audio CD, DVD-Audio, Dolby Digital and DTS discs.

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.

JPEG compatibility information

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.

Note

When connecting to a standard TV, select

4:3 L - Box or 4:3 Pan Scan in the TV Aspect setting (see page 45).

Connect the video output of the player directly to your TV.

3 Plug into a standard AC wall outlet.

Connecting S-Video cables

S-Video cables will only plug in one way, so make sure the plug is correctly lined up with the jack before inserting. Be sure to fully insert for a good connection.

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).

2Connecting Up

Home theater audio connections

This player outputs multi-channel audio in both analog and digital form. Check the manual for your amplifier/receiver to see what equipment it is compatible with (especially which digital formats—Dolby Digital, DTS, etc.—it can decode).

Connecting analog audio cables

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

Connecting optical cables

Optical interconnects OPT only plug in one way, so

make sure the plug is correctly lined up with the jack before inserting. 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.
