Introduction
Important safety instructions
Thank you for purchasing this Cambridge Audio Azur 752BD 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.
For your own safety please read the following important safety
instructions carefully before attempting to connect this unit to the mains
power supply. They will also enable you to get the best performance from
and prolong the life of the unit:
The 752BD features almost universal disc/file compatibility and can
play back CD, HDCD, DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, Super Audio CD and
Blu-ray discs including those with 3D content plus most audio and
video file formats from both USB connected hard-drives and network
connected NAS drivers or servers.
1. Read these instructions.
Five WM8740 2-channel DACs from Wolfson Microelectronics are
featured giving both a permanent 7.1 and a separate Stereo analog
output. All analog outputs are also up-sampled via an Analog Devices
DSP running our proprietary ATFTM upsampling and jitter suppression
algorithm from Anagram Technologies to 24 bits and 192kHz.
This careful audio design ensures that the 752BD 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.
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 deep-colour support and both can receive Audio
Return Channels (ARC) from TVs that support this feature.
ARC allows the TV to become an audio source to the BD Player allowing
you to listen to music or video streaming services that your TV may
feature in the best possible quality when up-sampled and output by the
752BD player.
The primary HDMI 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 from any source. Up-scaling
to 4K x 2K is possible for the very latest TVs that support this resolution.
S/P DIF, Toslink and two HDMI inputs (one of which also supports
MHL) plus the two ARC inputs allow the 752BD to be your digital hub
connecting a wide range of audio and video sources all of which can be
up-sampled and up-scaled by the 752BD for the best possible audio or
audio-visual experience.
2. Keep these instructions.
3. Heed all warnings.
4. Follow all instructions.
5. Do not use this apparatus near water.
6. Clean only with a dry cloth.
7. Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in accordance with the
manufacturer’s instructions.
8. Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat registers,
stoves, or other apparatus (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
9. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or grounding-type
plug. A polarized plug has two blades with one wider than the other.
A grounding-type plug has two blades and a third grounding prong.
The wide blade or the third prong are provided for your safety. If the
provided plug does not fit into your outlet, consult an electrician for
replacement of the obsolete outlet.
10. Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched, particularly
at plugs, convenience receptacles and the point where they exit from
the apparatus.
11. Only use attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer.
12.Use with only the cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table
specified by the manufacturer, or sold with the apparatus.
When a cart is used, use caution when moving the cart/
apparatus combination to avoid injury from tip-over.
13.Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when
unused for long periods of time.
An Ethernet connection is provided for BD Live, Network playback from
UPnP/DNLA servers and NAS drives and other interactive features via
the internet such as Picasa and YouTube. Additionally the 752BD is
supplied with a USB Wi-Fi dongle.
14.Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing is
required when the apparatus has been damaged in any way, such
as the power-supply cord or plug having been damaged, liquid has
been spilled or objects have fallen into the apparatus, the apparatus
has been exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate normally, or
has been dropped.
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.
This product utilises a Laser. Use of controls or
adjustments or performance of procedures other
than those specified herein may result in hazardous
radiation exposure. Do not open covers and do not
repair yourself. Refer servicing to qualified personnel.
The 752BD is also capable of outputting all of these formats as
bitstreams over HDMI for decoding in a suitable AV Receiver.
Lastly, the 752BD features an environmentally friendly low power
(<0.5W) standby circuit.
All this proprietary engineering is housed within our low resonance,
acoustically damped chassis. A backlit Azur Navigator remote control is
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 752BD 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.

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.

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.

Cinavia Notice
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.
This product uses Cinavia technology to limit the use of unauthorized
copies of some commercially-produced film and videos and their
soundtracks. When a prohibited use of an unauthorized copy is detected,
a message will be displayed and playback or copying will be interrupted.
Copyright protection
More information about Cinavia technology is provided at the Cinavia
Online Consumer Information Center at http://www.cinavia.com. To
request additional information about Cinavia by mail, send a postcard
with your mailing address to: Cinavia Consumer Information Center, P.O.
Box 86851, San Diego, CA, 92138, USA.
This Product incorporates copy protection technology that is protected
by U.S. patents and other intellectual property rights of Rovi Corporation.
The use of Rovi Corporation’s copy protection technology in the product
must be authorized by Rovi Corporation. Reverse engineering and
disassembly are 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 the back of the unit (i.e. A, B or C).
Discs that have no region coding are also playable. These usually have
all 3 region codes on the packaging in a pyramid.
DVD-Video – This player plays DVD-Video with marks that match the
region code on the back of the unit (i.e. 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5).
Discs that are encoded for All regions are also playable.
Disc care and handling
• T o keep the disc clean from scratches or fingerprints, handle the disc
by its edge. Do not touch the recording surface.
• 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.

a suitable Audio/Video Receiver for surround sound decoding (output
must be set for "Bitstream" - refer to the "Audio setup" section). HDMI is
however the preferred correction to AV Receivers as the latest lossless
CODECS are only supported over HDMI. These outputs can also be used
to connect to a separate DAC or digital recording device (output must be
set for "LPCM" - refer to the "Audio setup" section).
Toslink Optical - Use a high quality TOSLINK fibre optic cable.
S/P DIF Co-Axial Digital - Use a high quality 75 ohm digital RCA/Phono
interconnect cable designed specifically for digital audio use.
5. HDMI output 2
Secondary HDMI output. Both outputs 1 and 2 can be used at the same
time to send the same audio/video to two displays (with both being 3D
TV compatible) or to send audio over one HDMI link and video over the
other.
Always use a "HDMI 1.4 High Speed" certified Cable.
HDMI 1 and 2 both support Audio Return Channel from TVs that have this
function. See later section.
6. HDMI output 1 (primary output)
The HDMI (High-Definition Multi-Media Interface) is a purely digital
connection that can carry both audio and video. Use a dedicated HDMI
cable to connect to a TV/Monitor or AV Receiver with a compatible HDMI
input.
Always use a "HDMI 1.4 High Speed" certified Cable.
Note:
• 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 USB device may cause the player to
stop responding. If this occurs simply turn off the power, remove the
USB 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.
8. IR (Infra-Red) emitter in
Allows modulated IR commands from multi-room systems or IR repeater
systems to be received by the unit.

Separate analogue stereo
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 752BD, 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 752BD 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).
12
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 752BD setup.

Analogue 2 ch/5.1/7.1
The 752BD 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 752BD 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.

752BD
Note: The Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby True HD, DTS HD High Resolution
and DTS HD Master Audio can only be passed by the 752BD over HDMI.
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.
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.
The 752BD supports two HDMI outputs, both are 3D TV and ARC
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.

The 752BD is pre-configured from the factory for the best settings for
most modern TVs and AV Receivers.
Both can accept up to 1080p video and digital audio.
However to ensure you have the basic settings right please read the
following sections on setting the best output resolution, display aspect
ratio and audio settings. Many more advanced options are also covered
later in the manual.
The front panel HDMI is combined with an MHL input, either type of
connection can be used with portable devices such as digital camcorders.
For HDMI devices the 752BD can received audio and video in the normal
way, for MHL devices the 752BD receives audio and video and also

Setting up the player
Operating instructions
Selecting the best output resolution
Getting started
For the latest generation of 1080p, "Full HD" or "True HD" TV displays,
the best output resolution will naturally be 1080p. For earlier “HD Ready”
digital televisions this might be 720p or 1080i. It is usually best to set
the output of the 752BD to the native resolution of the TV, consult the
TVs manual for details of the actual resolution of its panel. Large TVs
are often 1080p (1920 x 1080) but smaller TVs are sometimes 720p
(1280 x 720). 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.
Turn on the power of the 752BD, TV, amplifier/AV receiver and any other
components which are connected to the 752BD. Make sure the TV and
the audio receiver are set to the correct input channel.
The 752BD also supports a special "Source Direct" output mode via its
HDMI output. This mode 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
1080i
For both HDMI outputs, the following output resolutions are available:
4Kx2K, Auto, 1080p, 1080i, 720p,480p/576p, 480i/576i, and Source
Direct.
If Auto is selected, the player will determine the output resolution based
on the best signal resolution that the TV can display. It does this by
reading the EDID of the TV via the HDMI connection, if all is well the TV
will tell the 752BD the range of video outputs it can support and the
752BD will pick the highest one. The 752BD will then allways scale the
output to this resolution.
If any of the other resolutions is selected the 752BD will always scale
the output to the resolution you select. Note that 4K x 2K is a very new
standard and only a handful of TVs currently support this. For most TVs
selecting this option will cause the picture to be lost.
To change the output resolution, press the Res button on the remote to
bring up the Resolution Menu, then press the  or  buttons on the
remote to highlight the desired output, press the Enter button to confirm
and return. If your TV does not support the selected resolution, you may
see a black screen or an error message. In this case, try a different
resolution that your TV can support.
Note:
• In case you are not able to get a picture using the HDMI outputs, please
connect the player to the TV using the diagnostic composite video
output, and then use the Setup Menu to adjust the player settings.

Note:
• Audio Return Channel (ARC) is a feature introduced in HDMI V1.4,
which allows you to send digital audio signals from the television back
to the player or receiver. Instead of listening through TV speakers, ARC
allows the sound to be processed and produced by the home theater
audio system.
• A HDMI 1.4 cable is required and you need to make sure the HDMI
input port on the TV is ARC capable . Usually, ARC also has to be
enabled in the TV’s settings.
The volume control buttons on the remote handset only affect the analog
audio outputs. Volume control does not apply to the digital audio/video
outputs (HDMI, Co-axial and Optical). The remote can alternatively be
made to control the volume (plus source change, mute, on/off and zone
2 where available) of most Cambridge Audio azur range AV Receivers and
amplifiers See the previous section on the remote control for full details.

after specifying a search location.
• Some Blu-ray Discs feature their own search.
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.
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 button on the remote control:
Picture-in-Picture and Secondary Audio
Certain Blu-ray discs contain secondary video (Picture-in-Picture/PIP) and
secondary audio. This feature is often called BONUSVIEW. When such
a disc is played, a Picture-in-Picture mark (PIP Mark) and a Secondary
Audio Program Mark (SAP Mark) may be displayed on the screen to alert
you to the availability of the secondary audio/video content.
1. Make sure the video cable is properly connected.
2. Turn on the TV. Make sure the correct input is selected.
T he disc menu usually features interactive controls to turn on/off the
Picture-in-Picture video and Secondary Audio Program. Please use those
controls to select the desired secondary audio/video content.
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 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 to the unit.
There is also a PIP button on the remote control. If the disc menu does
not offer interactive Picture-in-Picture controls, please use this button
to turn on/off Picture-in-Picture or select from multiple secondary video
programs.
4. Use the   buttons to select the new output resolution. Pressing
the Res 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).
Similarly there is a SAP button on the remote control. If the disc menu
does not offer interactive secondary audio controls, please use this
button to turn on/off Secondary Audio Program or select from multiple
secondary audio tracks. Secondary Audio Programs are generally only
available when Picture-in-Picture is shown.
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.
Note:
• This function is available only when the discs are recorded with
secondary video and audio programs.
• Discs may not always be played back according to the PIP and SAP
remote buttons. Certain discs can ignore or override the remote
control commands.
• The PIP and SAP Marks on the screen (which alert the user to the
presence of these functions on the disc) can be turned off using the
Setup Menu of the player.

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. You will
still be able to see the resolution selected on the front panel display.
• In case you are still not able to get a picture using the HDMI outputs,
please connect the player to the TV using the composite video output,
then use the Setup menu to adjust the player settings.
azur
752BD
TV system selection
The 752BD 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 the 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 pressing the TV Type button until a supported system is selected.
• The output system selected with the 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.
As well as normal CD’s, SACD’s, DVD’s and BD’s the 752BD 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/
thumb-drives or hard-drives.
Connecting a USB Drive
The 752BD is equipped with three USB 2.0 ports, one on the front of the
unit and two on the back. You may use any USB port to plug in a USB
drive loaded with digital music, movies and photo 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 all USB hard disks.
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.
Note: Availability of static pictures depends on the DVD-Audio disc.
Network Media Playback
Pure Audio mode
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.
T he 752BD can remotely Playback music, photos, and video files stored
on media devices that are connected to the same home net work. Set
the My Network selection to On in the Setup Menu. Press the
button
on the remote to bring up the Home Menu, select the Network icon
and press Enter button to show the list of available servers and shared
folders. In some cases, you might need to disable your firewall to allow
the 752BD to see your devices.
2. Press the Pure Audio button again to resume video and cancel Pure
Audio mode.
The 752BD can perform Network Playback in one of the following three
ways:
Note:
• As a digital media player (DMP): the 752BD can actively search, access
and pull content from media servers on you network.
You can enjoy higher quality audio by turning off the video processing
and front panel display. The Pure Audio mode reduces any potential
interference between the video and audio signals.
• 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.
• As a digital media renderer (DMR): the 752BD plays content received
(‘pushed‘)from a digital media controller (DMC). A DMC-capable UPNP/
DNLA media server is required. Plus the control APP you wish to use
which must be connected to the same network as the server and
752BD. Refer to the server and APPs respective user instructions for
correct configuration and operation.
• Accessing a SMB/CIFS client: the player can directly access files
shared by computers through SMB/CIFS clients over the network, as
if accessing a local USB hard drive. Most computers especially those
installed with Windows, already have an SMB client embedded. Please
refer to your respective OS instructions to set up the SMB/CIFS shared
file/folder.
Note:
• A NAS is a network attached storage device that provides file-based
data storage services to other devices on the network. Commercial
products are available that often incorporate a UPnP/DNLA Server.
• SMB (Server Message Block) or Cifs (Common Internet File System) is
mostly known as the folder sharing method of Microsoft Windows. It
does not require an extra media server or perform any media format
transcoding.
• Compatibility with local network sharing hardware/software is on a
best effort basis with no guarantee, due to variations in NAS devices,
media servers and their configurations

Note: It is possible that some setup items are greyed-out and inaccessible.
This can be caused by a disc still being played back or interlocking with
mutually exclusive setup items. Please stop playback or eject the disc
before trying to change these setup items. If you still cannot access the
setup item, please check for configuration conflicts and consistency. For
example, if "Video Setup > 1080p24 Output" is set to "Off", the "DVD 24p
conversion" menu items "Auto" and "Source Direct" will be grayed-out.
Setting "1080p24 Output" to "On" will enable the "DVD 24p conversion"
menu items "Auto" and "Source Direct" to be set.

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 and
HDMI2:
Picture Mode – The 752BD 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.
For HDMI 2, the Mediatek chipsets in-built scaler is used and sharpness
level can 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 white line etching around objects.
752BD
For HDMI 2, 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 apply.
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.
2. Dual HDMI Output
Allows you to select the output mode when both HDMI Output ports are
in use. If only one HDMI Output is active, this selection will not apply.
The options are:
Split A/V (Recommended) – Use HDMI 1 Out as the dedicated video
output port and HDMI 2 Out as the dedicated audio output port. This
setting will ensure the best possible picture quality and the highest
possible audio resolution.
Dual Display – Send digital audio and video signals to both HDMI
Outputs simultaneously. This setting is only recommended when two
HDMI displays are required, since the surround sound audio signal may
be down-mixed to stereo and the original audio quality may be lost.
Note: The player can automatically adjust the resolution of digital audio
and video signals depending on the capabilities of the connected
television and receivers. For HDMI 1 Out, the dedicated QDEO video
processor will be used unless Source Direct is selected, in which case
QDEO is bypassed.
3. 3D Output
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. 3D-compatible glasses are required compatible
with your TV.
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.
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.
4. 3D Setting
Adjusts the playback settings for better 3D visual quality.
Noise Reduction – To select whether the player shall apply video noise
reduction processing.
Blank HDMI 2 – This allows the 752BD to force HDMI 2 to output a 2D
blank screen when HDMI 1 outputs 3D video.
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).
2D->3D Depth – Adjusts the 3D depth perception when performing
2D-to-3D conversion (also called "simulated 3D"). The default value is 8.
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.
3D TV Size – To enter the diagonal screen size of your HDTV. This option
applies to 3D mode only, 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:
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.

10. HDMI Options
To choose the output video standard (PAL/NTSC) to match your TV. The
options are:
To configure video options that apply only to the HDMI outputs. To enter
this sub-menu, select "HDMI Options" from the Video Setup menu.
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.
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).
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.
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.
Note: Do not select "Multi-system" if your TV does not support both PAL
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.
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 "”Output resolution” on page 18 of
the manual.
8. 1080p24 Output
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:
uto (Recommended) – The player checks with the display device to
A
automatically determine what colour spaces it can support and uses
those. Usually avoids extra colour space conversion.
GB Video Level – Forces the HDMI output to use RGB colour space
R
and normal signal range suitable for TV type displays.
GB PC Level – Forces the HDMI output to use RGB colour space and
R
expands the signal range that to suitable for personal computer (PC)
type displays.
ostly used for TVs with DVI inputs designed to be also used as PC
M
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.
CbCr 4:4:4 – The HDMI output is forced to use the YCbCr 4:4:4 colour
Y
space.
CbCr 4:2:2 – The HDMI output is forced to use YCbCr 4:2:2 colour
Y
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.)
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Off – Video encoded in 24Hz frame rate will be converted to 50Hz (PAL)
or 60Hz (NTSC)
9. DVD 24p Conversion
Allows you to enable 24Hz frame rate conversion for DVD. This option
is only available when 1080p24 Output is enabled (set to Auto or On).
Many DVDs that originate from theatrical movies are encoded with a
technique called "3:2 telecine" in order to convert the 24 frames per
second film to 60Hz video signal. The player can convert the 60Hz video
signal back to 24 frames per second film and output as 1080P/24Hz.
Smoother motion may be achieved by enabling this option, if both the TV
and the DVD disc meet the conversion conditions.
The available options are:
On – Converts DVD to 24Hz frame rate when possible. Remember
that motion errors may be observed if the DVD is not suitable for such
conversion.
Off (default) – Does not convert DVD to 24Hz frame rate.
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.
The available options are:
6 Bits – Always use the maximum 36-bit per pixel Deep Colour mode
3
for the output.
0 Bits (Dithered) – Use the 30-bit per pixel Deep Colour mode with
3
dithering of any over 30 bit content.
0 Bits – Use the 30-bit per pixel Deep Colour mode and hard limit
3
output at 8 bits per colour.
ff (Dithered) – Do not use Deep Colour, dithering any over 24 bit
O
content.
Off (default) – Do not use Deep Colour, hard limit output at 8 bits per
colour.
26
HDMI Deep Colour (HDMI 2) – Select the Deep Colour mode for the HDMI
2 output. The options for HDMI 2 are more limited (no QDEO scaler) and
are simply off, 30 bits or 36 bits.
Audio Format Setup
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.
Note: At the time of writing, no BD discs are yet encoded with
Deep Colour.
11. 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:
ormal – On-screen display information stays on the TV screen until
N
the user cancels it.
inimal – On-screen display information shows on the TV screen
M
for a few seconds and then disappears. The front panel display still
maintains the selected display information.
emaining – On-screen display information stays on the TV screen
R
until the user cancels it. By default display remaining time instead of
elapsed time.
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.
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:
n – After about 3 minutes of inactivity, the player will show an
O
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.
ff – The screen saver will not be activated. Use this option if your TV
O
does not have a burn-in issue.
nergy Saver – Video output will be turned off after 3 minutes of
E
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.­­

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.
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.
27
Setup menu continued
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 (DVDAudio, 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
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 LPCM– Supported by most equipment. Higher sample rate
material will be downsampled to 48kHz.
96kHz LPCM– 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 LPCM – 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.
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. 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 752BD’s own
audio outputs are also active and playback of SACD material is possible
by the 752BD 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).
5. HDCD Decoding
To set the audio decoding option for HDCD (High Definition Compatible
Digital) discs. The options are:
On – HDCD is decoded by the 752BD. 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 752BD 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.

Down Mix Mode
Down mix is the process of converting multi-channel audio to a lesser
number of channels. For example, converting a 5.1ch source to stereo or
converting a 7.1ch source to 5.1ch. Down mixing allows the audio output
from the player to match the exact number of speakers available in your
home theatre system.
The current down mix mode is displayed in the lower right corner of the
speaker placement illustration.
To change the audio down mix setting, press the Enter button while the
cursor is over the "Down Mix" option. The following down mix modes are
available:
1. Size
The speaker size parameter sets bass filtering control for the speakers.
The bass frequency is set in the "Crossover Frequency" option of the
"Audio Processing" section of the Setup menu:
Large – Bass frequencies are passed to the speakers.
Small – Bass frequencies are not passed to the speakers to reduce
possible distortion. If a subwoofer is available, bass frequencies are
redirected to a subwoofer.
On (for subwoofer only) – Specify that a subwoofer is available.
Off – Speaker for the corresponding position does not exist. Audio for
the missing speaker is redirected to other speakers or discarded if
redirection is not possible.
LT/RT – Left Total/Right Total. The centre and surround channels are
decoded and then Matrix encoded into the two front channels. A Dolby
Pro Logic receiver can then decode the two channel audio that is output
back into surround audio.
Note: The front, surround and surround back speakers are configured as
pairs. Changes to the size of one speaker will automatically change the
other speaker of the pair.
Stereo - This mode down-mixes multi-channel audio to 2-channel stereo
output. For original stereo content the output will not change. For original
multi-channel content the surround and centre channels will be mixed
with the left and right front channels. Recommended for use with TV sets
or stereo receiver/amplifiers (without Pro Logic decoding).

2. Distance
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.

For example, in the above diagram, measure the distance (in feet) from
the primary listening position to the Front Left or Front Right Speaker.
Your Front Right and Left speakers must be the same distance from the
listener. Enter the distance of the Front Speakers (1. in the above picture)
into the "Speaker Configuration" menu.
Next, measure the distance (in feet) from the centre speaker (2) to the
listening position. Move the cursor to highlight the Centre speaker in the
Channel Delay setup page, and enter the distance (as close as possible)
in feet. Repeat for each speaker in the system (Centre, Surround
Left, Surround Right, Surround Back Left, Surround Back Right and
Subwoofer) as available. The player will insert appropriate delay to the
center, subwoofer and surround channels to make sure sound waves
from different speakers arrive at the listener at the same time.
Other Audio Processing Settings
1. Crossover Frequency
When the speaker size is set to "Small" in "Speaker Configuration",
bass frequencies are not passed to the speakers to reduce possible
distortion, bass frequencies will instead be redirected to the subwoofer.
The available options are:
40Hz / 60Hz / 80Hz / 90Hz / 100Hz / 110Hz / 120Hz / 150Hz / 200Hz
/ 250Hz – These are the available crossover frequencies. You can press
the / buttons and the Enter buttons to select it. This option applies
to all speakers (center, front, surround, and surround back speakers). By
default the crossover frequency is 80Hz.
2. Dynamic Range Control
To set the Dynamic Range Compression (DRC). DRC can smooth out the
sonic peaks and valleys common with wide-range digital audio. Enabling
DRC may make low level audio more audible during low-level listening.
Turning off DRC restores the sonic energy present in the original
recording. The available options are:
Auto – Play at the dynamic range specified by the disc. This option
applies to Blu-ray Discs only. For other disc types no dynamic range
compression is applied.
On – Turn on dynamic range compression.
Off – Turn off dynamic range compression.
Note: Dynamic Range Compression is applied to the analog audio output
and digital audio outputs (HDMI, Coaxial and Optical) when the audio
format is set to PCM.
3. DTS Neo:6 Mode
Allows you to enable DTS Neo:6 audio processing and select the
listening mode. DTS Neo:6 is a digital signal processing that can
expand the original stereo source to 7.0 (L, R, C, LS, RS, LR, RR) or 7.1
(with Bass Management) surround.
Music – Enables DTS Neo:6 audio processing for stereo music sources.
Cinema – Enables DTS Neo:6 audio processing for digital TV box or
stereo movie sources.
Off (default) – Turns off the DTS Neo:6 to keep the original audio quality.
Notes:
4. Output Volume
– The distance between the surround speakers and the listener must
be shorter than or equal to that between the front speakers and the
listener.
Allows you to enable or disable the analog volume controls (also known
as Variable Audio). The available options are:
– 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
tones from a calibration disc, such as Digital Video Essentials HD Basics,
and a SPL (Sound Pressure Level) meter. The trim level can be set to +/10dB in 0.5dB increments.
32
Variable – Enables the analog volume control. Use the Volume buttons
on the remote to decrease/increase the analog audio output level
(the maximum is 100). Both the 7.1 and dedicated stereo outputs are
affected.
Both the 7.1 and dedicated stereo outputs are affected.

1. Firmware Information
To display the currently installed firmware version.
2. Firmware Upgrade
To upgrade the player’s firmware. This operation is only available when
the playback is completely stopped or when there is no disc loaded.
The firmware is the system software that controls the features and
functions of the player. Since the Blu-ray disc specifications are new
and evolving, it is possible that a Blu-ray disc manufactured after the
player was manufactured use certain new features of the Blu-ray disc
specifications. We may also introduce new features from time to time.
There are three ways to upgrade the player’s firmware. The options are:
Via Disc – From time to time, you may be able to download a disc image
from the Cambridge Audio’s website www.cambridge-audio.com/care
and burn an upgrade disc.
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 manufacturer-specific implementation of the HDMI CEC
function is often given a proprietary name of "…Link" or "…Sync". The
752BD provides three modes for the HDMI CEC function:
HDMI 1 – HDMI CEC is enabled on HDMI 1 output. Use this mode if your
other devices are compatible with the player.
HDMI 1 (Limited) – HDMI CEC is enabled on HDMI 1 output, but the
752BD 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.
HDMI 2 – HDMI CEC is enabled on HDMI 2 output. Similar to HDMI 1.
HDMI 2 (Limited) – HDMI CEC is enabled on HDMI 2 output, but the
752BD will only respond to playback control commands. Similar to HDMI
1 (Limited).
Off (default) – HDMI CEC feature is turned off on both HDMI output
terminals. The player will not respond to HDMI CEC commands from
other devices, nor will it setup other devices automatically.
5. Standby Mode
Allows you to choose the unit’s standby mode between Energy Efficient
and Quick Start Mode. The available options are:
Quick Start – Player starts significantly faster, but uses more power on
standby.
Energy Efficient – Player starts slower, but uses only 0.5W in standby.
6. Sleeper Timer
This allows the 752BD to turn itself off after a specific amount of time.
This function can be disabled (set to Off) or set to a specific time of 30,
45, 60, 90 or 120 mins.
7. Front Panel Brightness
To control the display intensity of the front panel Vacuum Fluorescent
Display (VFD) information window. This option allows you to dim it or turn
it off. The available options are:
Standard - The VFD window is at full brightness.
Dim - The VFD window is at reduced brightness.
Off – The VFD window is turned off. In this mode the display resumes
momentarily when there is any user operation.
Via USB – You may also be able to download the firmware files from
Cambridge Audio’s web site to a USB drive and then use the USB
drive to upgrade the player. For the above two cases closely follow any
instructions on our website.
Via Network – If the player has a working Internet connection, you
may upgrade the player directly over the Internet. Please follow the
instructions on your TV screen.

5. Wireless Setting
Note: The 752BD includes a wireless adaptor. Other wireless adaptor
will not work.
To start the wireless setting procedure. The wireless setting procedure
can be started either by selecting the "Wireless Setting" option, or by
selecting "Wireless" in "Connection Method" option, the procedure is
described as follows:
The player first searches for the last successful wireless settings. If any
exist, a message will pop up as below:
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.
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.
ubnet Mask – Each IP address has an associated subnet mask. It is
S
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.
ateway – The IP address of the router. It is also called "default gateway"
G
or "default router". When "IP Setting" is set to "Auto (DHCP)", the value
displayed here is obtained using DHCP and cannot be changed.
NS 1 – The IP address of the first (primary) DNS (Domain Name
D
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
Use Previous – To use the last successful wireless setting. A summary of
the previous wireless setting will pop up showing information like SSID
(Service Set Identifier), Security Mode and Security Key (in asterisk *).
Then a connection test will be automatically performed and the test
result shown on the screen.
Start New – To start a new wireless configuration. The 752BD supports
three wireless configuration methods and the available options are:
can – To scan for available wireless networks. The player automatically
S
scans for any available wireless networks nearby and the search results
are listed in a window. You can press the / buttons to highlight
a network then press the Enter button to select it. If this network is
secured, you need to input the security key using the remote control.
Then a connection test will be automatically performed and the test
result is shown on the screen.
anual – To manually set the information for a wireless network. You
M
need to use the remote control to input the SSID, select the Security
Mode and input the Security Key. Then a connection test will be
automatically performed and the test result is shown on the screen.
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.
roxy Port: To enter the proxy host port number using the remote
P
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.
PS – To start the Wi-Fi Protected Setup. 752BD supports the WPS
W
standard to provide an easy and secure establishment of a wireless
home network. If you have a router/wireless access point that also
support WPS. The available options are:
PIN – To configure the WPS using a Personal Identification Number.
The player will generate a PIN and you need to input it into the
software control panel of your wireless router or access point. Please
follow the on-screen instruction.
BC - To configure the WPS using Push Button Control. You need to
P
push a PBC button on your wireless router or access point to initiate
the wireless connection. Please follow the on-screen instruction.
Note: – SSID is short for Service Set Identifier. It is an identifier for each wireless
router or access point, and is also referred as a network name.
– WPS is short for Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS). It is the latest standard
for easy and secure wireless home network configuration. It is also
named Wi-Fi Simple Config. To use WPS, a WPS compatible router or
access point is required.

Filters
For all sources the 752BD up-samples all internally decoded material to
24/192kHz via an Analog Devices SHARC DSP.
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 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.

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.

frequency/FS (input sampling rate)
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).

Check that the interconnects are inserted correctly.
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.
Check if the output has been set incorrectly to Bitstream or LPCM.

Check that the disc is not too scratched or dirty.
Ensure that the 752BD is on a firm surface and not subject to vibrations.
