Introduction
ENGLISH
Thank you for purchasing this Cambridge Audio Azur Blu-ray Player. Like
all Cambridge Audio products, our Blu-ray players adhere to our three
core principles – stunning performance, ease of use and incredible
value.
The 651BD/751BD both features almost universal disc compatibility and
can play back CD, HDCD, DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, Super Audio CD and BluRay discs including those with 3D content. 24/192kHz Digital to Analogue
converters and our usual careful audio design ensure that the
651BD/751BD can reproduce the dynamics and scale required for
modern movie soundtracks whilst also being able to reproduce a
genuinely musical performance with either stereo or multi-channel music
discs.
A full range of HDMI, digital and analogue outputs are fitted. These allow
the connection of suitably equipped TVs and AV receivers.
Twin HDMI outputs allow two screens or a screen and a projector to be
connected at the same time. Both are fully compatible with the HDMI 1.4
standard for 3D TV and deepcolour support.
The primary output also features a Marvell QDEO scaler with motion
adaptive noise reduction and a host of technologies to further improve
the picture quality for this output.
An Ethernet connection is provided for BD Live and other interactive
features via the internet. Additionally the 751BD is supplied with a USB
Wi-Fi dongle.
The latest surround-sound formats are supported including decoding of
Dolby True HD, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD Master Audio and DTS-HD High
Resolution Audio in Stereo, 5.1 or 7.1 variants. In particular support for
the true lossless Dolby True HD and DTS HD Master Audio formats
provides unprecedented audio fidelity from Blu-ray discs.
The 651BD/751BD is also capable of outputting all of these formats as
bitstreams over HDMI for decoding in a suitable AV Receiver.
Both models use 24/192kHz Digital to Analogue converters. The 651BD
features a Cirrus Logic CS4382A 8 Channel multi-dac to create its 7.1
analog output (which can be set to Stereo mode also).
The 751BD instead uses five WM8740 stereo DACs from Wolfson
Microelectronics and features both a permanent 7.1 and a separate
Stereo output. For the 751BD all analog outputs are also up-sampled via
an Analog Devices DSP running our proprietary Q5 Upsampling and jitter
suppression algorithm from Anagram Technologies to 24 bits and
192kHz.
Both models feature an environmentally friendly low power (1W) standby
circuit.
All this proprietary engineering is housed within our low resonance,
acoustically damped chassis. An Azur Navigator remote control is also
provided, giving full remote control of your Blu-ray player and if required
a Cambridge Audio amplifier or AV receiver in an attractive and easy to
use handset.
Remember your 651BD/751BD can only be as good as the system it is
connected to. Please do not compromise on your AV receiver or speaker
package and always use good quality video and audio cabling. Naturally
we particularly recommend AV receivers such as those from the
Cambridge Audio Azur range, which has been designed to the same
exacting standards as this product. Your dealer can also supply excellent
quality Cambridge Audio interconnects to ensure your system realises its
full potential.
Thank you for taking the time to read this manual; we recommend you
keep it for future reference.

Cambridge Audio Technical Director
and the 651BD/751BD design team

Plug-fitting Instructions (UK only)
The cord supplied with this appliance is factory-fitted with a UK mains plug fitted with
a 3-amp fuse inside. If it is necessary to change the fuse, it is important that a
3-amp fuse is used. If the plug needs to be changed because it is not suitable for
your socket, or becomes damaged, it should be cut off and an appropriate plug
fitted following the wiring instructions below. The plug must then be disposed of
safely, as insertion into a mains socket is likely to cause an electrical hazard. Should
it be necessary to fit a 3-pin BS mains plug to the power cord, the wires should be
fitted as shown in this diagram. The colours of the wires in the mains lead of this
appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals
in your plug. Connect them as follows:
The wire which is coloured BLUE must be
connected to the terminal which is marked with
the letter ‘N’ or coloured BLACK.
The wire which is coloured BROWN must be
connected to the terminal which is marked with
the letter ‘L’ or coloured RED.
The wire which is coloured GREEN/YELLOW must
be connected to the terminal which is marked
with the letter ‘E’ or coloured GREEN.
If a standard 13-amp (BS 1363) plug is used, a 3-amp fuse must be fitted or, if any
other type of plug is used, a 3-amp or 5-amp fuse must be fitted, either in the plug
or adaptor, or on the distribution board.

resolution audio of up to 24/96 5.1 or 24/192 resolution
with video or still pictures. Some DVD-Audio discs also contain a DVDVideo portion.
BD-ROM compatibility
Since the Blu-ray Disc specifications are new and evolving, some discs
may not play properly depending on the disc type, version and encoding.
It is possible that a Blu-ray disc manufactured after the player was
manufactured uses certain new features of the Blu-ray Disc
specifications. To ensure the best possible viewing experience, the player
may need a firmware or software update from time to time.
Copyright protection
This product incorporates copyright protection technology that is
protected by U.S. patents and other intellectual property rights. Use of
this copyright protection technology must be authorized by Macrovision
Corporation, and is intended for home and other limited viewing uses only
unless otherwise authorized by Macrovision Corporation. Reverse
engineering or disassembly is prohibited.
Region management information
This player is designed and manufactured to respond to the region
management information of DVD or BD discs. If the region number of a
BD-Video or DVD disc does not correspond to the region number of this
player, this player cannot play the disc.
BD-Video – This player plays BD-Video with marks that match the code on

by its edge. Do not touch the recording surface.
• HD DVDs
• BD-Video/DVD-Video with a different region code to the Blu-ray player
you have purchased.
• Some DualDiscs: A DualDisc is a two sided disc with DVD on one side
and digital audio on the other side. The digital audio side does not
generally meet the technical specifications of the Compact Disc Digital
Audio (CD-DA) format so playback is not guaranteed.
• Music discs encoded with copyright protection technologies: among
such discs, some again do not conform to the CD standard so playback
is not guaranteed.
• Blu-ray Discs record data in very high density and the record layer is
very close to the disc surface. For this reason, Blu-ray Discs are more
sensitive to dust and fingerprints than DVD. Should you encounter
playback problems and see dirty spots on the disc surface, clean the
disc with a cleaning cloth. Wipe the disc from the centre out along the
radial direction. Do not wipe the disc in a circular motion.
• Do not use record cleaning sprays or solvents such as benzene, thinner
and anti-static spray.
• Do not attach labels or stickers to discs as this may cause the disc to
warp, become imbalanced or too thick, resulting in playback problems.
• Avoid exposing the discs to direct sunlight or heat sources.
• Do not use the following discs:
– Discs with exposed adhesive from removed stickers or labels. The
disc may get stuck inside the player.
– Warped or cracked discs.
– Irregularly shaped discs, such as heart or business card shapes.

Separate analogue stereo (751BD only)
The analogue stereo outputs should be used for play back of CDs, DVDs
etc in stereo through a conventional amplifier or AV receiver with analogue
stereo inputs.
Analogue stereo is also usually the best connection method for listening
to CDs and other stereo discs for best possible sound quality. It is often
a good idea to connect both the analogue stereo outputs (for CD
playback) and digital audio outputs or HDMI (for surround sound
decoding) at the same time.
To connect an analogue stereo system to the 751BD, use stereo phono
cables (stereo 2RCA-2RCA).
2
Digital audio
The digital audio outputs should be used to decode the surround-sound
soundtracks of BD/DVDs with an external AV Receiver (Note: Digital output
must be set to "RAW" in the Audio setup page). The 651/751BD sends an
undecoded audio bitstream to the AV Receiver for decoding into 5.1/7.1 etc.
Note: The latest HD audio types, SACD and DVD-A cannot be output over
SPDIF/TOSlink and an HDMI connection must be used for these.
Either a 75ohm co-axial cable designed for digital audio or a TOSlink fibre
optic cable should be used (only one at a time).
Note: It is also possible to output stereo digital audio from the Digital
Outputs for recording on conventional CD-R/MD etc. machines, see
section on 651/751BD setup.

Analogue 2 ch/5.1/7.1
The 651/751BD is also capable of decoding Surround-Sound
soundtracks itself and outputting these as analogue Stereo, 5.1 or 7.1
depending on the settings in the Speaker setup page in the 651/751BD
setup menu.
For 5.1, connect to an AV receiver or amplified speaker system, use 6 x
phono/RCA cables.
For 7.1, connect to an AV receiver or amplified speaker system, use 8 x
phono/RCA cables.

651/751BD
The 651/751BD can output video in both fully digital (HDMI) and
analogue (Composite or Component) formats. If your TV set supports
HDMI then this is the preferred format (see next section).
If your TV set supports only analogue video the preferred connection is (in
declining order of quality) Component and then Composite.
Set the Primary Output option in the setup menu to ‘Analog’,
see later section.
Note: The 651/751BD will output BD content (including 1080p) as up to
1080i over the component connections only.
Also note video up-conversion of content over the component connections
is limited by CSS encryption on most discs.
The HDCP protected HDMI outputs do not suffer this limitation and offer
full up-conversion of all content.

HDMI connections
HDMI (High-Definition Multi-Media Interface) is a digital connection that
can carry both audio and video in one cable. Direct digital transfer of
video and support for various types of high definition video content make
this the best connection type for picture quality.
The 651/751BD supports two HDMI outputs, both are 3D TV compatible.
For normal use with a single TV or TV and AV Receiver use HDMI output
1 (Primary Output) as this benefits from the Marvell QDEO Video
processor, as shown below.
Note: The Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby True HD, DTS HD High Resolution and
DTS HD Master Audio can only be passed by the 651/751BD over HDMI.
As HDMI can carry both digital audio and video, HDMI can be used to
connect to AV receivers that support this function for external decoding.

Accessing the Easy Setup Wizard
When the player is turned on for the first time, an Easy Setup Wizard
screen will appear. This is a series of guided instructions designed to
configure the basic settings for the unit.
Note: If the Easy Setup Wizard has previously been completed or
cancelled, it will no longer initiate when you turn on the unit. To access
Easy Setup Wizard again, press the Setup button on the remote control,
select Device Setup, then Reset Factory Default. Select "OK" to confirm
loading the factory default settings. Once the factory default settings are
loaded the Easy Setup Wizard will appear again.
To start the Easy Setup Wizard, please follow these steps:
1. Turn on the TV.
2. Turn on the player.
3. Switch the input selection on your TV so that the TV displays the signal
from the player. You should see the first step of the Easy Setup Wizard.
The first step of the Easy Setup Wizard gives you the opportunity to skip
the entire wizard. If you are familiar with setting up audio/video
equipment and would like to fully customize the player settings using its
setup menu, you may use the  button to select the "Cancel" option,
then press the Enter button to exit the Easy Setup Wizard.

Choose the primary video output
The player can output video through its HDMI and component output
terminals. Composite video output is always available but not
recommended. By setting the "Primary Video Output" option, the player
can optimize video output of the selected terminal. The choices are
"HDMI 1", "HDMI 2" and "Analog". If you connect the player to the TV using
an HDMI cable, please select "HDMI 1" or "HDMI 2" correspondingly. If
you connect the player to the TV using component video cables, please
select "Analog".
Select the best output resolution
For the latest generation of 1080p, "Full HD" or "True HD" TV displays, the
best output resolution will naturally be 1080p. For all other digital
televisions this will likely be 720p or 1080i. These are general
recommendations that work for most users, but there can be exceptions.
Advanced users may want to try all supported resolutions and choose the
one that provides the best visual result.
The 651/751BD supports a special "Source Direct" output resolution on
its HDMI output. This resolution is recommended for use with external
video processors or high-end TVs with high quality scalers. In "Source
Direct" mode, the player works as a "transport". It decodes video from the
discs and then sends the raw video signal in its native resolution and
format, without extra processing, to the external video processor or TV.
The actual output resolution thus varies by content:
Content
PAL DVD
NTSC DVD
Most Blu-ray Movies (film-source)
Most Blu-ray TV shows or Concerts
(video-source)
SACD and DVD-Audio
Source Direct Output Resolution
576i
480i
1080p 23.976Hz or 1080p 24Hz

1080i
Enter
Depending on your selection of "Primary Video Output", the available
output resolution selections will differ. For the HDMI 1 and HDMI 2 output,
the following output resolutions are available:
Auto, 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p/576p, 480i/576i, and Source Direct. If
"Auto" is selected, the player will determine its output resolution based on
the best signal resolution that the TV can display.
For the Analog (component) output, the following output resolutions are
available: 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p/576p and 480i/576i.
Note: 1080p only applies to HDMI output, if it is selected for component
video outputs, it will automatically be down-scaled to 1080i. Please refer
to the specifications of your TV to find the best resolution to use.
Auto
Enter
Enter
Note: The best performance will be provided over the HDMI connection.

Note:
• In case you are not able to get a picture using the HDMI or component
output, please connect the player to the TV using the composite video
output, and then use the Setup Menu to adjust the player settings.
• Video up-conversion over the component output is only available for
unencrypted discs such as home video and consumer-created
contents. Most commercially pressed DVD discs are CSS-encrypted and
will be limited to 480i/480p resolution. This restriction applies to the
component output only. The HDMI output is protected with HDCP and
has no such restriction.
Determine the display aspect ratio
Select the audio setting
The Blu-ray disc format brings not only high resolution video, but also high
bit rate audio such as Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD High
Resolution and DTS-HD Master Audio. Blu-ray Discs may also include
additional audio features such as menu click sound and Secondary Audio
Program (SAP – audio associated with the secondary video in Picture-inPicture mode). Depending on the user preferences and other audio/video
equipment connected to the player, the audio settings need to be
adjusted to achieve the best result. The Easy Setup Wizard offers two
basic selections to get you started.
Use to select the screen format to fit your TV screen.
4:3 Letterbox - Alternatively you can select
this screen when connected to a 4:3 TV
set. The full widescreen picture is
displayed on the screen with black strips
on the top and bottom of the screen.
4:3 PanScan - You can select this screen
when connected to a 4:3 TV set. The
widescreen picture will display on the full
screen, but some parts of the video picture
will be cut off automatically.
Enter
The "Compatible" setting configures audio output in a way that is generally
compatible with all types of equipment and content. If you connect the
player to a television directly, or to a receiver with an HDMI 1.1/1.2 or
optical/coaxial input, selecting the "Compatible" setting is recommended.
When menu click sound and Secondary Audio Program are presented in
the content, those will be mixed into the audio output.
16:9 Wide - Select this screen when
connected to a 16:9 widescreen TV set.
The full picture will now normally be
displayed with no picture cropping (unless
the movie itself has black bars recorded
into the video).
16:9 Wide/Auto - 16:9 (widescreen) as well as 4:3 sources will be
displayed in their native aspect ratio. Please note that in this mode 4:3
sources will be displayed with black borders on both sides to maintain
the correct 4:3 aspect ratio.
The "Advanced" setting configures audio output to send the original main
audio content to a connected receiver for decoding and reproducing. It
requires a receiver capable of decoding all high bit rate audio formats. If
you connect the player to a receiver supporting HDMI 1.3 and high bit
rate audio formats (such as our 650R AV Receiver), selecting the
"Advanced" setting is recommended. Menu click sound and Secondary
Audio Program are turned off by default to preserve the original quality of
the main audio content.
to avoid leaving black bars on the screen for any length of time as you may
encounter temporary "burn-in" where the display retains memory of the
"used" part of screen and the unused (black bar) portions are clearly
defined on the screen during subsequent viewing sessions. The "16:9
Wide" mode is the best choice for these types of displays.

presence of these functions on the disc) can be turned off using the
Setup Menu of the player.
Some Blu-ray disc titles are released with the BD-Live feature. BD-Live
offers extra downloadable contents and additional online interactive
programs. The available BD-Live content varies by disc and studio, and
may include additional subtitles, commentaries, preview trailers, games,
and online chat. The player needs to be connected to the Internet in order
to play BD-Live contents.
18
Depending on how the studios organise their BD-Live contents, some Blu-ray
discs may start downloading BD-Live content when playback starts; some
have a BD-Live selection on its main menu; some may show a prompt to ask
whether you would like to start downloading; and some may ask you to sign
up for a membership or account. Please follow the instructions that come with
the disc to enjoy BD-Live contents.
Your Internet connection speed, the overall Internet traffic situation and
the capacity of the BD-Live content servers can all affect how fast BDLive content can be downloaded. If you encounter slow downloading or
intermittent playback, please play the disc without accessing the BD-Live
features, or try again at a different time.
When you use the BD-Live feature, the player or disc ID and your IP
(Internet Protocol) address may be sent to the content provider via the
Internet. Generally, no personally identifiable information is sent. However
technologies exist to match your IP address to a certain geographical area
or service provider. Your Internet service provider also has the knowledge
of who is using which IP address. If the BD-Live content provider requires
you to login using a membership or account, the content provider will
have access to your membership or account information. Please check
with your Internet service provider and the BD-Live content providers for
their privacy policy.
You can also choose to restrict BD-Live access using the player’s Setup Menu.
Output resolution
If you would like to change the output resolution, you may do so by
pressing the Res/TV Type button on the remote control:
1. Make sure the video cable is properly connected.
2. Turn on the TV. Make sure the correct input is selected.
3. Make sure that the player is turned on. Although the output resolution
can be changed "on the fly", it is recommended that you stop playback
and take out the disc before changing the output resolution. Press the
Res/TV Type button. A "Resolution Setting" menu appears on the TV
screen. In case the TV does not support the current resolution and you
cannot see the "Resolution Setting" menu, the current resolution is
also displayed on the front panel.
4. Use the   buttons to select the new output resolution. Pressing
the Res/TV Type button cycles through the available output resolutions.
The new resolution is displayed on the front panel just in case you
cannot see the "Resolution Setting" menu (if it is incompatible with your
TV).
5. Press the Enter button to apply the selected output resolution. Or, if
you do not want to change the output resolution, press the
button.
The following output resolutions are available:
PAL output via HDMI 1 or 2– Auto, 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 576p, 576i, Source
Direct.
NTSC output via HDMI 1 or 2 – Auto, 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p, 480i, Source
Direct.
PAL output via Analog (component) – 1080p*, 1080i, 720p, 576p, 576i.
NTSC output via Analog (component) – 1080p*, 1080i, 720p, 480p,
480i.
* When 1080p is selected with Analog output selected as the primary
video output, HDMI output resolution will be 1080p and component
output resolution will be 1080i.
651/751BD
TV system selection
The 651/751BD can be set to output all video as PAL or NTSC or output
the video in the same format it was recorded in (Multi). Some TVs only
support PAL or NTSC and not both so forcing the output type to one or the
other can be useful.
Press and hold the Res/TV Type button on the remote control to cycle the
video output to PAL, NTSC or "Multi" system. The TV screen displays the
selected system name.
Some points to keep in mind:
• When the video output is set to PAL or NTSC, the player will convert the
disc content if different to the selected system.
• When the video output is set to "Multi", the player will not perform
system conversion and will output the video in its native format on the
disc. The "Multi" mode should only be used if your TV supports both
NTSC and PAL systems.
• Some TV sets only support one of the PAL or NTSC systems. If the wrong
output is selected, the TV may not display a picture. In this case keep
holding the Res/TV Type button until a supported system is selected.
• The output system selected with the Res/TV Type button will be
remembered when the player is turned off. The output system selection
can also be done by setting the "TV System" item in the "Video Setup"
section of the player’s Setup Menu.
Viewing pictures on DVD-Audio discs
Some DVD-Audio discs contain static pictures, such as photos of the band
or narration of the album. When a DVD-Audio track is playing, you may use
the Page  and Page  buttons to select the picture.
Note: Availability of static pictures depends on the DVD-Audio disc.
Pure Audio mode
You can enjoy higher quality audio by turning off the video processing and
output. The Pure Audio mode reduces any potential interference between
the video and audio signals.
1. Press the Pure Audio button on the remote control to turn off video
and enter Pure Audio mode. Video output will be turned off.
2. Press the Pure Audio button again to resume video and cancel Pure
Audio mode.
Note:
• Pure Audio mode is automatically cancelled when the unit is switched
off or when playback is stopped.
• Since HDMI carries audio together with video, the HDMI output cannot
be completely turned off. A black screen (inactive video but sync is still
present) is transmitted instead to minimize any potential interference.
Shuffle
When playing a CD or SACD, press the Blue button on the remote control
to activate the Shuffle and Random modes. Each press of the Blue button
switches the playback mode in the following sequence: Shuffle , Random
and Normal.
Note:
• Some TV sets do not support one more output resolutions (particularly
1080p). If an incompatible output resolution is selected, you will get a
blank screen or an error message. In this case please select an output
resolution that is supported by the TV.
• In case you are not able to get a picture using the HDMI or component
output, please connect the player to the TV using the composite video
output, then use the Setup menu to adjust the player settings.
• Video up-conversion over the component output is only available for
unencrypted discs such as home video and consumer-created
contents. Most commercially pressed DVD discs are CSS-encrypted and
will be limited to 480i/480p resolution. This restriction applies to the
component output only. The HDMI output is protected with HDCP and
has no such restriction.

Other media playback
As well as normal CD’s, SACD’s, DVD’s and BD’s the 651/751BD can play
some music, movies and photo files either from optical datadiscs (such
as CD-R, DVD-R etc.) or external memory such as USB flash-drives/thumbdrives or e-Sata hard-drives.
Connecting a USB or an e-Sata Drive
The 651/751BD is equipped with two USB 2.0 ports, one on the front of
the unit and the other on the back, and also an e-Sata port at the back.
You may use either USB port to plug in a USB drive or use the e-Sata port
with an e-Sata drive loaded with digital music, movies and photo files.
Playing music files
To play digital music files stored on an optical disc or external drive, select
"Music" from the Home Menu. A file browser will appear to assist you in
navigating the files and folders.
The first step is to select the "Data Disc" or external device that contains
the music files. The player will take a moment to read the disc and list the
folders and music files.
The USB ports are rated to provide a maximum of 5V, 1A power to the
attached device. This is usually sufficient to bus power (i.e. self power)
USB flash drives and flash memory card readers, but may not be sufficient
for USB hard disks.
To use the e-Sata port, an external power supply is needed to power up
the e-Sata drive. Note that the e-Sata port does not support “hotplugging”. To avoid damaging your e-Sata drive, always plug-in/unplug
the e-Sata drive when the 651/751BD is turned off.
Note:
• This unit supports Mass Storage Class Bulk Transport devices only.
Most USB thumbs drives, portable hard disk drives and card readers
conform to this device class. Other devices such as MP3 players, digital
cameras, and mobile phones that include their own memory
management may not be compatible.
• Supported USB drives must be formatted with the FAT (File Allocation
Table), FAT32 or NTFS (New Technology File System) file system.
• In some cases, an incompatible device may cause the player to stop
responding. If this occurs simply turn off the power, remove the device,
and turn the player back on.
• The player accesses the USB drive in read-only mode. In order to
minimize the risk of data corruption, it is recommended that you only
unplug the USB device when playback has completely stopped.
• DO NOT attempt to plug in a USB drive into the e-Sata port, or plug in
an e-Sata drive into the USB port, as this could damage both the drive
and the port.
The Home Menu
When a drive or an optical disc stored with media files is inserted, the
player presents a "Home menu" to assist you in navigating and playing
the files. You can also bring up the Home menu with the button on the
remote control. The Home menu is the starting point for accessing media
files.

1. Picture Adjustment
This is used to adjust picture control parameters. The 651/751BD
provides a wide array of picture controls. Please refer to the "Picture
Adjustment" section of this manual for details of each control.
2. Primary Output
To select the primary video output method. The options are:
HDMI 1 – Use HDMI 1 as the primary video output port. This setting will
ensure that the HDMI 1 output gets the best possible picture quality. The
dedicated Marvell QDEO video processor will be used unless “Source
Direct” for output resolution is selected, in which case the QDEO DE2750
video processor is bypassed. Component and composite video output
may not be available or may be limited to a lower resolution based on
content source limitations.
HDMI 2 – Use HDMI 2 as the primary video output port. Similar to “HDMI
1”, this setting ensures that the HDMI 2 output gets the best possible
picture quality, except that it utilizes the video decoder in the Mediatek
Chipset to perform necessary video processing, not the QDEO video
processor.
Analog – Use component video as the primary video output port. This
setting will ensure that the component output is always available and
displays proper video signals. The video decoder in the player performs
any necessary format conversion, and the QDEO video processor is
completely bypassed.
Note: Copyright control mechanisms encoded on the disc may limit the
output resolution of the component video output. For DVD, if CSS
encryption is in use the output resolution is limited to no more than
480p/576p; for Blu-ray Discs, the output resolution is limited to no more
than 1080i, and could be lower if the disc contains an Image Constraint
Token.
3. 3D Mode
To choose the video output mode for available 3D content at the HDMI
output ports. The options are:
Auto – Output 3D if supported both by the disc content and the display.
The player automatically checks for the existence of 3D content on the
disc and the 3D compatibility of the TV or projector. If both are qualified,
the player sends 3D video from its HDMI output terminals, otherwise only
2D video is sent out. Active shutter 3D-compatible glasses are required
compatible with your TV.
Forced – Always output 3D video format for 3D Blu-ray discs. You might
experience a black screen (no video output) if your TV is not 3D
compatible.
Off – Always output 2D video format, even when 3D video exists on the
disc. This can guarantee the video quality in case that your TV is not 3D
compatible, or some necessary part (such as the 3D glasses) is missing.
4. 3D TV Size
To enter the diagonal screen size of your HDTV. This option applies to 3D
mode, to facilitate the player adjusts the 3D image for better visual
quality.
The diagonal size of your TV screen, by default it is 46 inches.
5. TV Aspect Ratio
To set the aspect ratio of the player’s output image. The options are :
4:3 Letterbox – Choose this when the display is standard 4:3. A
widescreen image is displayed in "letterbox" format with black borders on
top and bottom.
4:3 Pan & Scan – Choose this when the display is standard 4:3. A
widescreen image will be stretched.
16:9 Wide – Choose this when the display is widescreen 16:9. 16:9
materials will be displayed in its native aspect ratio, and 4:3 materials
will be stretched horizontally.
16:9 Wide/Auto – Choose this when the display is widescreen 16:9. 16:9
materials will be displayed in its native aspect ratio, and 4:3 materials
will be displayed with black borders on both sides in order to maintain
the original 4:3 aspect ratio.
6. TV System
To choose the output video standard (PAL/NTSC) to match your TV. The
options are:
PAL – When playing PAL-encoded discs, no system conversion is
performed. NTSC-encoded contents are converted to PAL output. Blu-ray
discs encoded with 24Hz frame rate are converted to 50Hz frame rate if
neither 1080p24 Output nor Source Direct output resolution is enabled.
NTSC– When playing NTSC-encoded discs, no system conversion is
performed. PAL encoded contents are converted to NTSC output. Blu-ray
discs encoded with 24Hz frame rate are converted to 60Hz frame rate if
neither 1080p24 Output nor Source Direct output resolution is enabled.
651/751BD
9. HDMI Options
To configure video options that apply only to the HDMI output. This item
contains a sub-menu of the Video Setup menu allowing configuration of
some video settings that are unique to the HDMI outputs. To enter this
sub-menu, select “HDMI Options” from the Video Setup menu.
To exit this sub-menu, press the
button or the  key. Options are
present for HDMI1 (using the Marvell QDEO scaler) and HDMI2 (using
the scaler built into the Mediatek chipset).
The following HDMI options are available:
Colour Space (HDMI 1) – Used select the colour space for the HDMI 1
output.
The Marvell QDEO scaler can perform various conversions for this output.
The available options are:
Auto (Recommended) – The player checks with the display device to
automatically determine what colour spaces it can support and uses
those. Usually avoids extra colour space conversion.
RGB Video Level – Forces the HDMI output to use RGB colour space
and normal signal range suitable for TV type displays.
RGB PC Level – Forces the HDMI output to use RGB colour space and
expands the signal range that to suitable for personal computer (PC)
type displays.
Mostly used for TVs with DVI inputs designed to be also used as PC
monitors, these can expect signal in expanded RGB range when the DVI
input is selected. For these displays if the video signal uses the normal
RGB range, the black-white contrast will be reduced. You can set the
player to use the RGB PC Level output and restore proper contrast.
YCbCr 4:4:4 – The HDMI output is forced to use the YCbCr 4:4:4 colour
space.
YCbCr 4:2:2 – The HDMI output is forced to use YCbCr 4:2:2 colour
space. Generally this is the colour space that is closest to the colour
space encoded on the discs. (Discs are generally encoded in YCbCr
4:2:0 colour space, and the video decoder decodes it into YCbCr 4:2:2.)
Multi-system – No system conversion is performed. The output video
system is the same as that encoded on the disc. Blu-ray discs encoded
with 24Hz frame rate are converted to 60Hz frame rate if neither
1080p24 Output nor Source Direct output resolution is enabled. This
mode requires a TV that supports both NTSC and PAL systems.
Colour Space (HDMI 2) – To select the colour space for the HDMI 2
output. The Mediatek decoders own in-built scaler is used for this output.
The available options are the same as those for HDMI 1.
and NTSC systems. The TV display may become a black screen upon
inserting a disc encoded in a different system than your TV supports.
Should this happen, you can press the OPEN button to eject the disc tray,
and then use the Setup Menu to correct the "TV System" setting.
Normally, each pixel of the video image is transmitted using 24-bit data
(8-bit per channel for R, G, B or Y, Cb, Cr). If Deep Colour is supported on
your TV each pixel of the video image can be transmitted using 30-bit
(10-bit per channel) or 36-bit (12-bit per channel) data. The increased bit
depth should result in smoother colour transitions and better gradients
for better picture quality.
Note: Do not select "Multi-system" if your TV does not support both PAL
7. Output Resolution
To choose the output resolution that best matches your television’s native
resolution. For a detailed description on how to choose a proper output
resolution, please refer to the "Select the Best Output Resolution" section
of this manual.
8. 1080p24 Output
This option only applies to the HDMI output at 1080p resolution. Many
Blu-ray discs that originated from theatrical movies are encoded using
24Hz frame rate, the same number of frames per second as the original
theatrical film. If your TV properly supports 1080p 24Hz, smoother motion
can be achieved by enabling 1080p24 output for such discs. The
available options are:
HDMI Deep Colour (HDMI 1) – To select Deep Colour modes for the HDMI
1 output. Deep Colour is an OPTION for some TVs or projectors that
feature HDMI v1.3 or higher input.
For BD discs with native deep colour on them the extra information will
be passed to the TV. For up-scaled content such as DVDs the deep colour
output will be interpolated but can still result in a smoother picture. The
dithering/limiting options allow discs with deep colour content to be sent
to TVs with limited deep colour support.
Dithering is a way to softly limit any extra colour information in the source
material that the display cannot handle by adding ‘noise’ to prevent an
abrupt step in the levels.
Auto (default)– Video encoded in 24Hz frame rate will be output as
1080p 24Hz if the TV informs the player that it can support the 1080p24
signal.
On – Video encoded in 24Hz frame rate will be output as 1080p 24Hz
without regard to whether the TV can support the 1080p24 signal or not.
This is useful if the TV can actually support 1080p24 but does not
properly state its capability. Please note that if the TV cannot support
1080p24, selecting this option will result in no video.
Off – Video encoded in 24Hz frame rate will be converted to 50Hz (PAL)
or 60Hz (NTSC)
25
ENGLISH

Setup menu continued
The available options are:
36 Bits – Always use the maximum 36-bit per pixel Deep Colour mode
for the output.
30 Bits (Dithered) – Use the 30-bit per pixel Deep Colour mode with
dithering of any over 30 bit content.
30 Bits – Use the 30-bit per pixel Deep Colour mode and hard limit
output at 8 bits per colour.
Off (Dithered) – Do not use Deep Colour, dithering any over 24 bit
content.
Off (default) – Do not use Deep Colour, hard limit output at 8 bits per
colour.
HDMI Deep Colour (HDMI 2) – Select the Deep Colour mode for the HDMI
2 output. The available options are the same as those for HDMI 1.
Note: Since the Deep Colour feature is OPTIONAL and may not be
supported by all TVs, enabling Deep Colour while connected to a TV
without this feature may result in no effect or no video.
At the time of writing, no BD discs are yet encoded with Deep Colour.
Demo Mode – To enable a special split-screen demonstration mode. This
is designed for the demonstration of the QDEO video processing
technology. It can also be used as an aid for setting picture control
adjustments for Noise Reduction, Colour Enhancement and Contrast
Enhancement. It should NOT be used for normal movie watching. The
available options are:
On – The video screen will be split in half. The left side shows video
without the help of QDEO video processing, and the right side
demonstrates the result of QDEO video processing.
Off (default) – Normal viewing mode.
Note: The demo mode is cancelled automatically whenever the player is
turned off.
Video Only (HDIM 1) – To choose whether to only send video signal (no
audio signal) to HDIM 1 terminal or not. The available options are:
Yes – Only video signal is sent to HDMI 1 terminal. This can be useful
if you use HDMI 1 only for video display, no need to lower the volume or
mute the HDTV connected to it.
No (default) – Both video and audio signals are sent to HDMI 1 terminal.
10. Display Options
To configure the options for displaying on-screen information. The
following display options are available:
Subtitle Shift – To set the display position for subtitles. When the “Subtitle
Shift” is set at 0 (default), subtitles are displayed at the original position
as specified on the disc. When it is set at a value between 1 and 5,
subtitles are shifted up. When it is set at a value between -1 and -5,
subtitles are shifted down. This feature is helpful for instance to
customers using a 2.35:1 “Constant Image Height” video projection
system. Subtitles can be shifted to the active video area so they do not
get cut off.
OSD Position – To set the display position for on-screen display (OSD).
When the “OSD Position” is set at 0, OSD is shown at the top and bottom
of the video screen. When it is set at a value between 1 and 5, OSD is
shifted towards the vertical center line of the video screen. Similar to the
subtitle shift setting above, the “OSD Position” feature is helpful to
customers using a 2.35:1 “Constant Image Height” video projection
system.
OSD Mode – To select how long the on-screen display information, such
as elapsed or remaining time, stays on the TV screen. The available
options are:
Normal – On-screen display information stays on the TV screen until
the user cancels it.
Silent – On-screen display information shows on the TV screen for a few
seconds and then disappears. The front panel display still maintains
the selected display information.
Remaining – On-screen display information stays on the TV screen until
the user cancels it. By default display remaining time instead of elapsed
time.
26
Angle Mark (on/off) – To turn on/off the display of an angle mark when
a DVD or Blu-ray Disc with multiple available angles is played. Keeping
the angle mark off avoids distraction from normal movie watching.
PIP Mark (on/off) – To turn on/off the display of a Picture-in-Picture mark
when a Blu-ray Disc with secondary video is played. Keeping the PIP mark
off avoids distraction from normal movie watching.
SAP Mark (on/off) – To turn on/off the display of a Secondary Audio
Program mark when a Blu-ray Disc with secondary video and audio is
played. Keeping the SAP mark off avoids distraction from normal movie
watching.
Screen Saver – To turn on/off the screen saver function. The screen saver
is designed to minimize burn-in concerns for plasma and CRT display
devices. The available options are:
On – After about 3 minutes of inactivity, the player will show an
animated Cambridge Audio logo moving on a black background. This
allows most areas of the screen to rest and gives all areas an equal
opportunity to refresh.
Off – The screen saver will not be activated. Use this option if your TV
does not have a burn-in issue.
Energy Saver – Video output will be turned off after 3 minutes of
inactivity. Many projectors and LCD TVs will go into a standby or sleep
mode and turn off their projection lamp or LCD backlight lamp, thus
saving energy and prolonging the lamp life. When you press any button
on the remote control or the player’s front panel, the screen saver will
be cancelled and video output will be restored. If your TV is already in
standby or sleep mode, you may need to wake up the TV by pressing a
button on its remote or control panel.
Audio Format Setup
Bitstream – Digital audio output via HDMI will be in bitstream format.
This option is recommended when connecting the HDMI output to an A/V
receiver or processor that supports advanced audio decoding of Dolby
TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio etc.
Off – No digital audio output via HDMI.

1. Secondary Audio
To set the Secondary Audio Program mixing option. Some Blu-ray discs
contain a secondary audio and video program, such as a director’s
commentary. Some Blu-ray Discs have a sound effect when you make
menu choices. This Setup Menu item allows you to decide whether to mix
the Secondary Audio Program and menu clicking sound into the primary
audio. The options are:
On – The Secondary Audio Program and menu clicking sound are mixed
into the primary audio. Usually this will cause the primary audio volume
to be slightly reduced. High resolution primary audio will be converted to
a normal resolution in order to mix with the secondary audio.
Off – The Secondary Audio Program and menu clicking sound are not
mixed into the primary audio and you cannot hear the secondary audio
or menu clicking sound. This setting preserves the highest possible audio
quality for the primary audio.
2. HDMI Audio
To select digital audio output format from the HDMI output. The options
are:
Auto (default) – The player checks with the device connecting to HDMI
output to automatically determine which audio format to use.
LPCM – Digital audio output via HDMI will be multi-channel Linear PCM
format. When this option is selected, compressed audio bit streams will
be decoded by the player and then sent as multi-channel PCM. This
setting is recommended when connecting the HDMI output directly to a
TV or to a receiver without advanced audio decoding capabilities.
Note: If you use HDMI to connect audio to an HDMI A/V receiver or audio
processor, it is important that you choose 720p or higher HDMI output
resolution when playing high resolution audio content (DVD-Audio,
SACD, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio). According to the HDMI
specification, the bandwidth available for audio is proportional to the
total bandwidth used by video. At 480p/576p resolution, the HDMI
specification can only support 2 channels of audio with high sample rate
(up to 192kHz), or 8 channels of audio with standard sample rate (up to
48kHz). If you play high resolution audio content at the 480p/576p
resolution, you may get reduced audio resolution, incomplete audio
channels, or even no audio/video output at all. Choosing a higher output
resolution such as 720p or above allows enough bandwidth for all high
sample rate audio channels.
3. Coaxial/Optical Output
Used to set the output format for the coaxial/optical digital audio outputs.
The options are:
LPCM – Forces down-mixed 2-channel digital audio output. Choose this
setting if your receiver/amplifier or DAC only supports stereo digital (PCM)
audio.
Bitstream – Passes audio as compressed bitstream format to the
receiver/amplifier. Choose this setting if your receiver/amplifier is capable
of decoding Dolby Digital and/or DTS etc.
4. LPCM Rate Limit
To set the maximum Linear PCM output frequency for the coaxial/optical
digital output. This menu item is intended to ensure that the audio output
is compatible with equipment that cannot support high sample rates. It
sets an upper limit to decide whether the player shall down-sample audio.
The options are:
Note: When using the Stereo or 7.1 Analog Audio outputs the LPCM rate
limit should always be set to 192kHz to allow the internal playback engine
to feed the up-sampler with the maximum sample-rate the content
supports.
48kHz – Supported by most equipment. Higher sample rate material will
be downsampled to 48kHz.
96kHz – Allows a higher sampling rate and frequency response. If using
an externally connected AV receiver or DAC via coaxial or optical, ensure
that the receiver/amplifier can support it. Higher sample rate material
will be downsampled to 96kHz.
192kHz – Allows the highest sampling rate and frequency response. If
using an externally connected AV receiver or DAC via coaxial or optical,
ensure that the receiver/amplifier can support it.
5. SACD Output
To select audio output format for SACD. The options are:
PCM – SACD Direct Stream Digital (DSD) data is decoded by the player
and converted into multi-channel, high resolution PCM data. The HDMI
output can be sent to an external AV receiver capable of receiving multi
channel PCM (HDMI 1.1 or higher inputs are required). The 651/751BD’s
own audio outputs are also active and playback of SACD material is
possible by the 651/751BD itself.
DSD – SACD DSD data is output over HDMI without any conversion. For
decoding by an external AV receiver capable of receiving DSD (HDMI 1.2a
or higher inputs are required and the receiver must actually include
support for DSD as it is not a mandatory requirement of the HDMI spec).

6. HDCD Decoding
To set the audio decoding option for HDCD (High Definition Compatible
Digital) discs. The options are:
On – HDCD is decoded by the 651/751BD. For HDCD discs, this gives
expanded dynamic range and improved audio resolution.
Off – HDCD is treated as regular CD and output as a native bitstream
preserving the hidden encoding. This is useful when the 651/751BD is
connected to an HDCD-capable A/V receiver via a digital audio output
link (Coaxial, Optical, or HDMI) the output is unprocessed so the A/V
receiver can perform HDCD decoding instead.

The speaker distance parameters sets delay control for the corresponding
audio channel. This delay is used to compensate for the audio
propagation time difference caused by the placement of speakers of
different distances from the listening position.
Speaker distance delay is only applied if the player is decoding multichannel audio. If you use bitstream audio output to your A/V receiver, the
bitstream audio is not adjusted for speaker distance delay.
Since the delay is calculated based on the distance difference from each
speaker to the listener’s position, it is important to set the distance for the
front speakers first and then the other speakers. Anytime you change the
distance of the front speakers, the distance of the other speakers will be
automatically adjusted to maintain the same distance difference.

subwoofer and surround channels to make sure sound waves from
different speakers arrive at the listener at the same time.
Setup Menu
Notes:
– The distance between the surround speakers and the listener must be
shorter than or equal to that between the front speakers and the
listener.
– The front, surround and surround back speakers are configured as
pairs. Changes to the distance of one speaker will automatically change
the other speaker of the pair.
3. Trim
The speaker trim level parameters sets the volume of each individual
channel. For most accurate results, it is recommended that you use test

4. HDMI CEC
CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) is an optional HDMI feature that can
enable convenient remote control and automatic setup of consumer
electronics over the HDMI connection. The remote control function allows
you to use a single remote handset to operate multiple devices connected
via HDMI. For example, you may use the TV remote to control playback of
the Blu-ray disc player. The automatic setup function can automatically
turn on the TV and change to the correct input when you start playing a
disc in the Blu-ray Disc player. It can also turn off the player automatically
when you turn off the TV. The implementation and compatibility of this
feature varies by device manufacturer. Each may only implement part of
the features or add their own proprietary functions. The manufacturerspecific implementation of the HDMI CEC function is often given a
proprietary name of "…Link" or "…Sync". The 651/751BD provides three
modes for the HDMI CEC function:
HDMI 1 & 2 – HDMI CEC is enabled. Use this mode if your other devices
are compatible with the player.
HDMI 1 & 2 (Limited) – HDMI CEC is enabled but the 651/751BD will
only respond to playback control commands. It will not respond or issue
power on/off and input selection commands. Use this mode if you do not
want the automatic setup function to turn on/off your devices.

6. IP Setting
To determine how the player obtains its IP address. The available options
are:
Auto (DHCP) - The player automatically obtains its IP address information
using DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). This is the default
setting. In most cases, automatic IP configuration is best and requires no
user intervention.
Depending on your primary video output, the detailed Picture Adjustment
menu will be slightly different as HDMI1 uses the Marvell QDEO scaler
which has more sophisticated features and algorithms for adjustment as
below.
Manual – Manually enter the numeric IP address information. For more
information on how to manually configure the Internet connection and
what values to use, please consult your broadband router/modem
instruction manuals or call your Internet service provider.
IP Address – The Internet Protocol address of the player. When "IP
Configuration" is set to "Auto (DHCP)", the value displayed here is
obtained using DHCP and cannot be changed.
Subnet Mask – Each IP address has an associated subnet mask. It is
used by the player to decide whether to route network traffic through the
router or directly to another device on the same network. When "IP
Setting" is set to "Auto (DHCP)", the value displayed here is obtained
using DHCP and cannot be changed.
Gateway – The IP address of the router. It is also called "default
gateway" or "default router". When "IP Setting" is set to "Auto (DHCP)",
the value displayed here is obtained using DHCP and cannot be
changed.
DNS 1 – The IP address of the first (primary) DNS (Domain Name
System) server. DNS is the mechanism to translate human-readable
addresses to numeric IP addresses. When "IP Setting" is set to "Auto
(DHCP)", the value displayed here is obtained using DHCP and cannot
be changed.
DNS 2 – The IP address of the second (secondary) DNS server. When
"IP Setting" is set to "Auto (DHCP)", the value displayed here is obtained
using DHCP and cannot be changed.
7. Proxy Setting
To configure the proxy server settings. A proxy server works as an
intermediary for network communication between clients and other
servers, which can provide benefits like security, anonymity, speedup or
circumventing regional restrictions.
On – To access the Internet via a proxy server.
Proxy Host: To enter the proxy host name using the remote control.
Proxy Port: To enter the proxy host port number using the remote
control.
Off (default) – Do not use a proxy server.
8. Connection Test
To test the Internet connection. It is recommended that you test the
connection when you initially connect the player to the Internet, or
whenever changes to "IP Setting" and other network parameters are
made.
Picture Adjustment
Picture Adjustment is a special section of the Video Setup menu. It allows
you to fine tune many picture control parameters in order to achieve the
optimal picture quality and visual result. To use Picture Adjustment, press
the Setup button on the remote control to enter the player’s Setup Menu,
and then choose "Video Setup" – "Picture Adjustment", then select the
primary video output terminal. The Setup Menu will be replaced by the
Picture Adjustment menu:
For information on how to choose your primary video output, please refer
to Primary Output section of this manual.
34
To change a picture adjustment parameter, use the / buttons to
highlight the parameter, and use the / buttons to change its value.
To aid in the adjustment of picture control parameters, the picture
adjustment menu will be reduced to only show the parameter being
adjusted once you press the / buttons. The reduced menu will be
positioned near the bottom of the screen.
You can continue adjusting the current parameter by pressing the /
buttons. To select another parameter, press the / buttons. Press the
Enter button to return to the large Picture Adjustment menu.
To exit the Picture Adjustment menu and return to the Setup Menu, either
select "Exit" or press the Return button.
The following picture adjustment controls are available, for HDMI1,
HDMI2 and Component video:
Picture Mode – The 651/751BD allows you to save up to three (3)
customized video modes.
Press the / buttons to switch the mode and all parameters will be
automatically adjusted to their stored values. Changes to the current
parameter values will be stored automatically when you exit the Picture
Adjustment screen or, switch to another Picture Mode.
Brightness – To adjust the brightness (black level) of the video output.
Contrast – To adjust the contrast (white level) of the video output.
Note: Proper brightness and contrast settings are necessary for a quality
video output. If you do not have the correct black and white levels, your
images can appear washed out or can lose detail in shadows when
watching darker scenes. Televisions have brightness (black level) and
contrast (white level) controls; however it may require a combination of
tweaking both the player and your television to get the optimal result.
First adjust the television’s picture controls for the best possible picture.
Once that is done, try changing the player’s settings to further refine the
picture to the optimal result.
Hue – To adjust the hue (tint) of the video output.
Saturation –To adjust the saturation (colour intensity level) of the video
output.
Sharpness – To set the sharpness of the video output (Detail/Edge
Enhancement), this a video processing function that can control the
image sharpness but if overdone may cause unwanted artifacts.
For HDMI 1, the sophisticated QDEO video scaler is used sharpness level
can be set between -16 and +16. The default is level 0, which turns off
sharpness enhancement. The negative levels may be used to reduce or
eliminate overly sharpened video, the picture being progressively
softened.
The positive levels increase the sharpness. At level 1, the player applies
low level Detail Enhancement, during which the video processor isolates
the detailed parts from the original image, processes them separately
and integrates back before the final output. At level 2, the player
increases Detail Enhancement to a higher level. Generally, to make an
image “sharper”, we recommend using level 1 and 2. At level 3 and
above, the player adds Luminance Transition Improvement (LTI) and
Chroma Transition Improvement (CTI), which further sharpen the
luminance transition and chroma transition. However, we do not
recommend using level 3 and above unless the source content is from a
poor source.
azur
651/751BD
For HDMI 1, the noise reduction level can be set between 0 and 8. The
default is level 0, which turns off noise reduction. When set to level 1,
the QDEO scaler adjusts the picture quality by reducing “mosquito noise”
(artifacts around the outlines of objects) and “block noise” (mosaic-like
patterns caused by video compression). These two noise reduction are
also called Compression Artifacts Reduction (CAR) and have several levels
of aggressiveness. When set to level 2, the player applies the Motion
Adaptive Video Noise Reduction (VNR), which handles the random noise
and the film-grain noise (natural variation of picture intensity caused by
film grain).
Its level is automatic because there is a noise estimator circuitry in the
video processor that calculates how much noise presents and adjusts
the level of VNR accordingly. When set to a high level between 3 and 4,
the player applies both CAR and Motion Adaptive VNR, with more
aggressive “block noise” reduction at level 4. At level 5, the player applies
aggressive CAR for low quality video content, and adds Motion Adaptive
VNR at level 6. At level 7, the player applies the most aggressive CAR for
very low quality video, and adds Motion Adaptive VNR at level 8.
Remember that excessive noise reduction may cause a loss of detail. We
recommend using the noise reduction function only when you encounter
poorly encoded or compressed video that has apparent noise artifacts.
For HDMI 2 & Analog, the noise reduction level can be set between 0 and
+3. The default is level 0. When user increases the level, the player
adjusts the picture quality by applying mosquito noise reduction, random
noise reduction and MPEG block noise reduction at the same time. The
higher level user sets, the more aggressive noise reduction functions

Colour Enhancement (HDMI 1 video output only) – Used to select a
colour enhancement level (enhance certain colours in the spectrum) of
the video output. It provides the ability to make more vivid some colours
without causing hue shifts, loss of details or changes in skin tones.
Contrast Enhancement (HDMI 1 video output only) – Used to select a
colour enhancement level (expands details in the shadows) on the video
output.
This runs our proprietary code from Anagram Technologies which
performs jitter suppression, up-sampling and anti-alias filtering for all 10
analog outputs (7.1 and Dedicated Stereo).
The front panel Filter button allows cycling between three different antialias filters as described below.
The three different Filter functions are: Linear Phase, Minimum Phase
and Steep. All three filters are optimised specifically for audio playback.
Each offers excellent sound quality but differs subtly in optimisation,
hence we’ve made all three available to you.
Note: For clarity, all diagrams show the theoretical response of the DSP
itself, excluding any analog filtering at the DAC outputs or the anti-aliasing
filter applied during recording and/or mastering of the digital source.

The Linear Phase filter is a highly regarded audio filter offering low ripple
in both the pass and stop bands, and what is known as constant group
delay. Constant group delay means that audio signals of all frequencies
are always delayed by the same amount when passing through the filter.
All audio is therefore fully time-coherent at the output.
The trade-off with this type of filter is that due to internal feed-forward in
the DSP, its impulse response will exhibit some pre-ringing. In other
words, when excited with a theoretical impulse, the output has both a
small amount of pre- and post-spike amplitude ringing (albeit well
damped).

For HDMI 2 & Analog, the Mediatek chipsets in-built scaler is used and
sharpness level can only be set between 0 and +2. The default is level 0.
The higher the level, the sharper the video details are. However, too high
a sharpness level may cause while line etching around objects.

The Minimum Phase filter is another highly regarded audio filter that
offers even lower ripple in the pass and stop bands. Unlike the Linear
Phase filter, group delay is not constant so some time-coherence is lost;
however, phase shift is low and the particular benefit with this filter is that
the impulse response exhibits no pre-ringing.

Our Steep filter is a linear phase filter that has been optimised for stop
band attenuation of close-in aliasing images. Here we have traded a little
attenuation of the very highest frequency response (for 44.1kHz sampled
material it would be -2dB at 20kHz) and a little more pre- and post-ringing
for a very steep attenuation just outside the pass band. The Steep filter
is able to attenuate aliasing at 22kHz by some 80dB.

Note: All filters exhibit the same ultimate roll-off of approximately 140dB.

material as an example:

best to your ears and using your source equipment/programme material.
