1 Before You Start

Features

An HDCP-compatible HDMI*1 terminal is provided for fully digital transmission that ensures the very highest picture and digital sound quality.

This unit comes with a High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) jack; an extended DVI interface for next-generation televisions. This interface allows transfers of uncompressed digital video and digital audio (audio streams such as Dolby Digital and DTS as well as linear PCM) with a single connector. HDMI standard Ver. 1.1 compatibility means the unit can also transfer DVD-Audio multi-channel audio over HDMI.

End-to-end full-digital transfers with all digital processing allow the enjoyment of realistic video without any image

degradation caused by AD/DA conversions. And the unit can up-convert 480p video signals to 720p, 1080i, and 1080p video output signals using the scaling function and the HDMI jack (see pages 11, 46).

High quality 12-bit/216 MHz Video D/A converter*2

The unit uses a Video D/A converter that performs D/A conversion of all video signals in 12-bits and can perform 8x oversampling to let you enjoy beautiful video possible with DVD. Furthermore, NSV technology suppresses noise during DA conversion.

DCDi *3

DCDi (Directional Correction Deinterlacing) computes and tracks the angle of the screen edge to fill in the missing pixels on the TV screen. DCDi significantly optimizes the image quality, especially during slow motion playback. This function is available only for progressive scan output.

High quality 24-bit/192 kHz DAC

The high specification 24-bit/192 kHz DAC delivers dynamic, smooth and expansive analog sound from CDs and DVDs.

Superlative audio performance with Super Audio CD, DVD-Audio, Dolby*4 Digital and DTS*5 software

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, MPEG data or DVD Audio Multi channel) 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 6, 40, 41, 46).

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-compatible DVI input.

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 ON in the Progressive setting (see page 44).

2 Connecting Up

Home theater audio connections

This player outputs multi-channel audio in digital form. Check the manual for your

amplifier/receiver to see what equipment it is compatible with (especially which digital formats such as Dolby Digital, DTS, etc. It can decode).

1 If your amplifier has 5.1 channel analog 2 inputs, connect them here. Connect

to the L (left)/R (right), SURR.L/.R (SURROUND L/R), CENTER and SUB WOOFER inputs of your amplifier.

Important

Before making or changing any rear panel connections, make sure that all components are switched off and unplugged from the wall outlet.

While a connected component is turned on, do not unplug the power cord of this DVD player from the wall outlet. The speaker may be damaged.

If your amplifier has stereo inputs only, connect them here. You can connect a subwoofer to the SUBWOOFER Jack.

Connect to the coaxial or

if it has digital inputs.

4

Plug into a standard

AC wall outlet.

Connecting analog audio cables

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

Connecting coaxial cables

 

Use an interconnector with a pin-type

 

(also called RCA

COAX

or phono) plug on

 

each end to connect

 

up digital coaxial-

 

type jacks. Make

 

sure that the plug is

 

pushed fully home.

 

Connecting optical cables

Optical intercon-

OPT

nects only plug in

 

one way, so make

 

sure the plug is

 

correctly lined up

 

with the jack before

 

insertion. 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.

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 (192 kHz or 176.4 kHz) will be downsampled to 96 kHz, 88.2 kHz, 48 kHz or 44.1 kHz, depending on the disc. Multi channel and high sampling rate DVD-Audio are only available through the analog outputs.

All DVD-Audio and all Super Audio CD audio are output only through the analog outputs. (see page 39)

Introduction

Many of the functions covered in this chapter apply to DVD discs, Video CDs and CDs, although the exact operation of some varies slightly with the kind of disc loaded.

When playing DVD discs, if the icon appears on-screen when you try to use a particular function, either the player or the disc doesn’t allow the use of that function.

When playing Video CDs, some of the functions are not available in PBC mode. If you want to use them, press the MENU to turn the PBC function off (see page 17).
