We Want You Listening For
A Lifetime
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the
unit you’ve just purchased is only the start of
your musical enjoyment. Now it’s time to
consider how you can maximize the fun and
excitement your equipment offers. This
manufacturer and the Electronic Industries
Association’s Consumer Electronics Group
want you to get the most out of your
equipment by playing it at a safe level. One
that lets the sound come through loud and
clear without annoying blaring or distortionand, most importantly, without affecting your
sensitive hearing.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your
hearing “comfort level” adapts to higher
volumes of sound. So what sounds “normal”
can actually be loud and harmful to your
hearing. Guard against this by setting your
equipment at a safe level BEFORE your
hearing adapts.
To establish a safe level:
0 Start your volume control at a low setting.
l Slowly increase the sound until you can
hear it comfortably and clearly, and without
distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable
sound level:
l Set the dial .and leave it there.
Taking a minute to do this now will help to
prevent hearing damage or loss in the future.
After all, we want you listening for a lifetime.
Used wisely, your new sound equipment
will provide a lifetime of fun and enjoyment.
Since hearing damage from loud noise is
often undetectable until it is too late, this
manufacturer and the Electronic Industries
Association’s Consumer Electronics Group
recommend you avoid prolonged exposure to
excessive noise. This list of sound levels is
included for your protection.

found on some amplifiers and AV
receivers.
Using other types of video
output
This player has standard (composite), SVideo and component video outputs. The
main difference between them is the quality
of the ptcture. S-Video delivers a better
picture than standard composite video, while
component video gives better picture quality

Cleaning the pickup lens
The DVD player’s lens should not become dirty

nearest Pioneer-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:

envrronment.
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
(!I STANDBY/ON on the front panel to turn the
player off. Wait for -OFF- to disappear from the
display, 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 Pioneer
authorized service center or your dealer for a
replacement.

Screen sizes and disc formats
DVD-Video discs come in several different
screen aspect ratios, ranging from TV
programs, which are generally 4:3, to
CinemaScope widescreen movies, with an
aspect ratio of up to about 7:3.
Set to 4:3(Pan&Scan), widescreen discs are
shown with the left and right sides cropped.
Although the picture looks larger, you don’t
actually see the whole picture.
Televisions, too, come in different aspect
ratios: ‘standard’ 4:3 and widescreen 16:9.
Widescreen TV users
If you have a widescreen TV the TV Screen
setting (page 43) of this player should be set
to 16:9(Wide).
Please note that many widescreen discs
override the player’s settings so that the disc
is shown in letterbox format regardless of the
sett i ng
When you watch discs recorded in 4:3
format, you can use the TV controls to select
how the picture is presented. Your TV may
offer various zoom and stretch options; see
the instructions that came with your TV for
details.
Please note that some movie aspect ratios
are wider than 16:9, so even though you have
a widescreen TV, these discs will still play in
a ‘letterbox’ style with black bars at the top
and bottom of the screen,
l
Tip
Using the 16:9 (Wide) setting with a
standard 4:3 TV or either of the 4:3
settings with a widescreen TV, will result
in a distorted picture.

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).
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-todigital 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
l?E%Y
Using a maximum of 5,l channels of audio,
this high quality surround system is used in
many of the finer movie theaters around the
world.
The on-screen display shows which channels
are active, for example showing 3/2.1. The 3
being the two front channels and the center
channel; the 2 being the surround channels,
and the .I being the LFE channel.
DTS stands for Digital Theater Systems, DTS
is a surround system different from Dolby
Digital that has become a popular surround
sound format for movies.
tn
m (Additional Information
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,
EXIF (Exchangeable Image File)
A file format developed by Fuji Photo Film for
digital still cameras. Digital cameras from
various manuafcturers use this compressed
file format which carries date, time and
thumbnail information, as well as the picture
data.
File extension
A tag added to the end of a filename to
indicate the type of file. For example, “.mp3”
indicates an MP3 file.
JPEG
A file format used for still images, such as
photographs and illustrations, JPEG files are
identified by the file extension “.jpg” or
“.JPG”. Most digital cameras use this format,
MP3
MP3 (MPEGI audio layer 3) is a compressed
audio file format. Files are recognized by
their file extension “.mp3” or “.MP3”.
MPEG audio
An audio format used on Video CDs and
some DVD discs. This unit can convert
MPEG audio to PCM format for wider
compatibility with digital recorders and AV
amplifiers, See also PC/V.
MPEG video
The video format used for Video CDs and
DVDs. Video CD uses the older MPEG-1
standard, while DVD uses the newer and
much better quality MPEG-2 standard.
En
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 D/gifa/ audio.
PBC (PlayBack Control) (Video CD only)
A system of navigating a Video CD through
on-screen menus recorded onto the disc.
Espectally good for discs that you would
normally not watch from beginning to end all
at once-karaoke discs, for example.
Regions (DVD-Video only)
These associate discs and players with
particular areas of the world. This unit WIII
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 44.1 kHz, which means 44,100
samples (measurements) per second. See
also DigItal audio.
