WARNING
Correct Handling
PRECAUTIONS
Do not drop the disc while handling. Hold the disc so you will
not leave fingerprints on the surface. Do not affix tape, paper, or
gummed labels to the disc. Do not write on the disc.
Never Attempt the Following
Do not grip or pull out the disc while it is being pulled back into
the player by the automatic reloading mechanism.
Do not attempt to insert a disc into the unit when the unit power
is off.
CORRECT
INCORRECT
CORRECT
Inserting Discs
Your player accepts only one disc at a time for playback. Do not
attempt to load more than one disc.
Make sure the label side is facing up when you insert the disc.
Your player will automatically eject any disc that is inserted
incorrectly. If the player continues to eject a correctly inserted
disc, push the RESET switch with a pointed object such as a
ballpoint pen.
Playing a disc while driving on a very bumpy road may result in
skips, but this will not scratch the disc or damage the player.
Disc Cleaning
Fingerprints, dust, or soil on the surface of the disc could cause
the DVD player to skip. For routine cleaning, wipe the playing
surface with a clean, soft cloth from the centre of the disc to the
outer edge. If the surface is heavily soiled, dampen a clean, soft
cloth in a solution of mild neutral detergent before cleaning the
disc.
New Discs
As a protective measure to prevent the Disc from jamming, the
DVD player will automatically eject discs with irregular surfaces
or inserted incorrectly. When a new disc is inserted into the
player and ejected after initial loading, using your finger, feel
around the inside of the centre hole and outside edge of the disc.
If you feel any small bumps or irregularities, this could inhibit
proper loading of the disc. To remove the bumps, rub the inside
edge of the hole and outside edge of the disc with a ballpoint pen
or other such instrument, then insert the disc again.

diameter of the disc. Using such accessories can cause the disc to
be out of standard specifications and may create operational
problems. We recommend not using these accessories on discs
played in Alpine DVD players.

Basic Operation
Here we calculate the time correction value for the front left
speaker in the diagram at the left.
Conditions:
Farthest Speaker – listening position : 2.25 m (88-9/16")
Front left speaker – listening position : 0.5 m (19-11/16")
Calculation: L = 2.25 m – 0.5 m = 1.75 m (68-7/8")
Time correction = 1.75 ÷ 343* × 1000 = 5.1 (ms)
*Speed of sound: 343 m/s (765 mph) at 20˚C
Rotary encoder
BAND
In other words, giving the front left speaker a time
correction value of 5.1 ms makes it seem as if the distance
to the front left speaker is the same as the distance to the
farthest speaker.
T.CORR
About the Time Correction
The distance between the listener and the speakers in a
car vary widely due to the special conditions of the mobile
environment. This difference in the distances from the
speakers to the listener creates a shift in the sounds image
and frequency characteristics. This is caused by the time
delay between the sound reaching the listener’s right
versus the left ear.
To correct this, the DVA-7996 is able to delay the audio
signal to the speakers closest to the listener. This effectively
creates a perception of increased distance for those
speakers. The listener can be placed at an equal distance
between the left and right speakers for optimum staging.
The adjustment will be made for each speaker in a step of
0.1 ms.
Example 1. Listening Position: Front Left Seat
Adjust the time correction level of the front left speaker to a
high value and the rear right to zero or a low value.
The sound is not balanced because the distance between
the listening position and the various speakers is different.
The difference in distance between the front left speaker
and the rear right speaker is 1.75 m (68-7/8").
Time correction eliminates the differences in the time
required for the sound to reach the listening position.
The time of the front left speaker is corrected by 5.1 ms so
that its sound reaches the listening position at the same
time as the sound of other speakers.
Example 2. Listening Position: All Seats
Adjust the time correction level of each speaker to almost
the same level.

Tips
* Subwoofer speaker
You cannot change the Time Correction value for the
subwoofer, but you can set the subwoofer's apparent position
to the front by adjusting the Time Correction value of the front
and rear speakers.
For details, refer to the “Tips” on page 11.
10-EN
Sit in the listening position (driver’s seat, etc.) and
measure the distance (in meters) between your head
and the various speakers.
Calculate the difference between the distance to the
farthest speaker and the other speakers.
L = (distance to farthest speaker) – (distance to other
speakers)
Divide the distances calculated for the speakers by the
speed of sound (343 m/s (765 mph) at 20˚C).
These values are the time correction values for the
different speakers.
Bass Focus
Example of Steps 2 and 3 Setting
(1) After entering corrections for the front (left and right)
speakers in STEP 15, the time difference is 1.5 ms for
both front-left and front-right speakers.
The time difference between the front-rear/left-right
speakers, can be adjusted at the same time. With an
initial delay of 0.1 ms for each of the 0 to 99 steps,
audible time correction can be done.

(2) After entering corrections for the left (front and rear)

rear speaker.
* Because the time difference was already set to 1.5 ms
for the front left speaker in STEP 1, the additional
correction in STEP 15 makes the time difference of the
front left speaker 3.0 ms.

Tips
* Subwoofer speaker
Delay (turn the rotary encoder) the audio signal to the front
(left and right) speakers to make the apparent position of the
subwoofer to be at the front. In doing this, the apparent
position between the front (left and right) speakers and
subwoofer will appear equal to the driver. After performing
above, you can change the positions of left and right speakers
by delaying the time.

• What is MP3?
MP3, whose official name is “MPEG Audio Layer 3”, is a
compression standard prescribed by the ISO, the
International Standardization Organization and MPEG
which is a joint activity institution of the IEC.
MP3 files contain compressed audio data. MP3 encoding
is capable of compressing the audio data at extremely
high ratios shrinking music files by as much as one-tenth
their original size. This is achieved while still maintaining
near CD quality. The MP3 format realizes such high
compression ratios by eliminating the sounds that are
either inaudible to the human ear or masked by other
sounds.
• Method for creating MP3 files
The software used to create MP3 files is widely sold or
free from various sources. For details on creating MP3
files, refer to the user's manual for that software.
The MP3 files that can be played back by this device
have the file extension “mp3”. Files with no extension can
not be played back.
• Supported playback sampling rates and bit rates
The unit can be set to play only the audio data (“Mix
Disc CD”) or only the MP3 files (“Mix Disc MP3”) on
discs containing both audio data and MP3 data (when
using discs containing both audio data and MP3 data).

• Producing MP3 discs
MP3 files are prepared, then written to a CD-R or CD-RW
using CD-R writing software. A disc can hold up to 255
files/folders (including Root Folders).
• Media supported
The media that this device can play back are CD-ROMs,
CD-Rs, and CD-RWs.

• Corresponding File Systems
Terminology
This device supports discs formatted with ISO9660 Level
1 or Level 2.
Under the ISO9660 standard,
there are some restrictions to remember.
The maximum nested folder depth is 8 (including the
root directory). File/folder names are limited to 31
characters (including the extension).
Valid characters for folder/file names are letters A-Z (all
caps), numbers 0-9, and ‘_’ (underscore).
This device also can play back discs in Joliet, and other
standards that conform to ISO9660. However,
sometimes the file names, folder names, etc. are not
displayed correctly.
• Formats supported
This device supports CD-ROM XA, Mixed Mode CD,
Enhanced CD (CD-Extra) and Multi-Session.
This device can not correctly play back discs recorded
with Track At Once or packet writing.
• Order of tracks
The unit plays the files in the order that the writing
software writes them. Therefore, the playing order may
not be the same as the order you input. The playback
order of the folders and files is as follows.

Bit rate
This is the “sound” compression rate specified for
encoding. The higher the bit rate, the higher the sound
quality, but also the larger the files.
Sampling rate
This value shows how many times per second the data
is sampled (recorded). For example, music CDs use a
sampling rate of 44.1 kHz, so the sound level is
sampled (recorded) 44,100 times per second. The
higher the sampling rate, the higher the sound quality,
but also the larger the volume of data.
Encoding
Converting music CDs, WAVE (AIFF) files, and other
sound files into the specified audio compression
format.

Information
About DVDs
Music CDs and DVDs have grooves (tracks) in
which the digital data is recorded. The data is
represented as microscopic pits recorded into the
track – these pits are read by a laser beam to play
the disc. On DVDs, the density of the tracks and pits
is twice that of CDs, so DVDs can contain more
data in less space.
CDs
Moreover, DVDs offer a variety of functions.
• Multiple audio* (page 32)
Movies can be recorded in up to eight languages. The
desired language can be selected from the remote control
unit.
• Subtitles function* (page 33)
Movies can include subtitles in up to 32 languages. The
desired subtitle language can be selected from the remote
control unit.
• Multi angle function* (page 32)
Minimum pit

1.2 mm
Track pitch 1.6 µm

Track pitch 0.74 µm
A 12 cm disc can contain one movie or about four
hours of music.
In addition, DVDs provide sharp picture quality with
vivid colors thanks to a horizontal resolution of over
500 lines (compared to less than 300 for VHS tape).
With the addition of an optional, digital audio
processor (PXA-H900/PXA-H510/PXA-H700), you
can recreate the power and presence of a movie
theater with Dolby Digital 5.1-channel Surround.
46-EN
• Multi story function*
With this function, a single movie includes various story
lines. You can select different story lines to view various
versions of the same movie.
Operation differs from disc to disc. Story line selection
screens including instructions appear during the movie.
Just follow the instructions.
DVDs
Minimum pit
length 0.9 µm
When the DVD contains a movie shot from multiple
angles, the desired angle can be selected from the remote
control unit.
NOTE
* The functions audio languages, subtitle languages,
angles, etc., differ from disc to disc. For details, refer
to the disc’s instructions.
Terminology
Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is a digital audio compression technology developed by Dolby Laboratories that allows
large quantities of audio data to be efficiently
recorded on discs. It is compatible with audio signals
from mono (1 channel) all the way up to 5.1-channel
surround sound. The signals for the different channels are completely independent, and since the
sound is high quality digital there is no loss of sound
quality.
* The separately sold digital audio processor (PXAH510/PXA-H900/PXA-H700) is required to enjoy
full 5.1-channel surround sound.
The DVA-7996 performs Dolby Digital decoding
when it outputs analog audio signals, it just happens
to be 2-channel audio not 5.1-channel.
DTS
This is a home-use digital sound format of the DTS
Sound System. This is a high quality sound system,
developed by Digital Theater Systems Corp for use
in movie theaters.
DTS has six independent sound tracks. The theater
presentation is fully realized in the home and other
settings. DTS is the abbreviation for Digital Theater
System.
* To enjoy DTS surround sound you need the
separately sold DTS digital audio processor
(PXA-H900/PXA-H700). The DVD video software
must also have a DTS sound track.
Dolby Pro Logic
FR
Dolby Pro Logic is the technology used to decode
programs encoded in Dolby Surround. Pro logic
decoding will provide you with four channels of
sound (front left/right, center and monaural rear
surround) from a 2-channel (stereo) source.
* The separately sold digital audio processor (PXAH510/PXA-H900) is required to enjoy Dolby Pro
Logic surround sound.
ES
Dolby Pro Logic II
Center
speaker
Front
speakers
Rear
speakers
Dolby Pro Logic II plays 2-channel sources in 5
channels over the entire frequency range.
This is done with an advance, high sound quality
matrix surround decoder which draws out the spatial
properties of the original recording without adding
any sounds to or changing the sound of the source.
* The separately sold digital audio processor (PXA-DE
H700) is required to enjoy Dolby Pro Logic II
surround sound.
Linear PCM audio (LPCM)
LPCM is a signal recording format used for music
CDs. Whereas music CDs are recorded at 44.1 kHz/
16 bits, DVDs are recorded at 48 kHz/16 bits to 96
kHz/24 bits, thereby achieving higher sound quality
than music CDs.
IT

Rating levels (parental lock)
Speaker layout for enjoying
Dolby Digital sound/dts sound
This is a function of the DVD for restricting the
viewing age as stipulated by laws in different countries. The way in which viewing is restricted differs
from DVD to DVD. Sometimes the DVD cannot be
played at all, other times certain scenes are skipped,
and other times certain scenes are replaced with
SE
other scenes.

Installation and Connections
Before installing or connecting the unit, please read the
following and pages 3 and 4 of this manual thoroughly
for proper use.
Caution
HAVE THE WIRING AND INSTALLATION DONE BY
EXPERTS.
MAKE THE CORRECT CONNECTIONS.
The wiring and installation of this unit requires special technical
skill and experience. To ensure safety, always contact the dealer
where you purchased this product to have the work done.
Failure to make the proper connections may result in fire or
product damage.
USE SPECIFIED ACCESSORY PARTS AND INSTALL THEM
SECURELY.
USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND.
Be sure to use only the specified accessory parts. Use of other than
designated parts may damage this unit internally or may not securely
install the unit in place. This may cause parts to become loose
resulting in hazards or product failure.
Warning
(Check with your dealer if you are not sure.) Failure to do so may
result in fire, etc.
BEFORE WIRING, DISCONNECT THE CABLE FROM THE
NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL.
Failure to do so may result in electric shock or injury due to
electrical shorts.
DO NOT ALLOW CABLES TO BECOME ENTANGLED IN
SURROUNDING OBJECTS.
Arrange wiring and cables in compliance with the manual to
prevent obstructions when driving. Cables or wiring that obstruct
or hang up on places such as the steering wheel, gear lever, brake
pedals, etc. can be extremely hazardous.
DO NOT SPLICE INTO ELECTRICAL CABLES.
Never cut away cable insulation to supply power to other
equipment. Doing so will exceed the current carrying capacity of
the wire and result in fire or electric shock.
DO NOT DAMAGE PIPE OR WIRING WHEN DRILLING
HOLES.
When drilling holes in the chassis for installation, take
precautions so as not to contact, damage or obstruct pipes, fuel
lines, tanks or electrical wiring. Failure to take such precautions
may result in fire.
DO NOT USE BOLTS OR NUTS IN THE BRAKE OR
STEERING SYSTEMS TO MAKE GROUND CONNECTIONS.
Bolts or nuts used for the brake or steering systems (or any other
safety-related system), or tanks should NEVER be used for
installations or ground connections. Using such parts could
disable control of the vehicle and cause fire etc.
KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BATTERIES OUT OF THE
REACH OF CHILDREN.
Swallowing them may result in serious injury.
If swallowed, consult a physician immediately.
DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WHICH MIGHT HINDER
VEHICLE OPERATION, SUCH AS THE STEERING WHEEL
OR GEARSHIFT.
Doing so may obstruct forward vision or hamper movement etc.
and results in serious accident.
ARRANGE THE WIRING SO IT IS NOT CRIMPED OR
PINCHED BY A SHARP METAL EDGE.
Route the cables and wiring away from moving parts (like the
seat rails) or sharp or pointed edges. This will prevent crimping and
damage to the wiring. If wiring passes through a hole in metal, use a
rubber grommet to prevent the wire’s insulation from being cut by
the metal edge of the hole.
DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WITH HIGH MOISTURE
OR DUST.
Avoid installing the unit in locations with high incidence of
moisture or dust. Moisture or dust that penetrates into this unit
may result in product failure.
Precautions
• Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (–) battery post before
installing your DVA-7996. This will reduce any chance of damage
to the unit in case of a short-circuit.
• Be sure to connect the color coded leads according to the
diagram. Incorrect connections may cause the unit to
malfunction or damage to the vehicle's electrical system.
• When making connections to the vehicle's electrical system, be
aware of the factory installed components (e.g. on-board
computer). Do not tap into these leads to provide power for this
unit. When connecting the DVA-7996 to the fuse box, make sure
the fuse for the intended circuit of the DVA-7996 has the
appropriate amperage. Failure to do so may result in damage to
the unit and/or the vehicle. When in doubt, consult your ALPINE
dealer.
• The DVA-7996 uses female RCA-type jacks for connection to
other units (e.g. amplifier) having RCA connectors. You may
need an adaptor to connect other units. If so, please contact
your authorized ALPINE dealer for assistance.
IMPORTANT
Please record the serial number of your unit in the space
provided below and keep it as a permanent record. The serial
number plate is located on the bottom of the unit.
