Introduction
Thank you for purchasing this Cambridge Audio Sonata DV30 DVD/CD player. Like all
Cambridge Audio products, the Sonata DV30 adheres to three core principles –
stunning performance, ease of use and incredible value.
The new Sonata DV30 was designed from the ground up based on a new and highly
evolved DVD chipset, which includes the ability to reproduce a progressive scan image
in both PAL and NTSC formats via either analog component video or digital HDMI
output. Great care has been taken with both the digital and analog video circuitry to
achieve the best possible audio and video performance, whichever connection you
use. A Digital to Analog converter IC from Wolfson ensures audiophile replay of DVD
or CD soundtracks. The HDMI output is also capable of up-scaling DVDs to the latest
720p, 1080i or 1080p video formats for use with HD TV sets.
Your Sonata DV30 can only be as good as the system it is connected to and we
particularly recommend equipment from the Cambridge Audio Sonata range. The
matching AR30 (FM/AM, and Sirius radio-ready in the US) and DR30 (DAB/FM) 2.1
channel receivers have been designed together with the DV30. Both of these feature
trigger outputs to sync with your DV30, and can be seamlessly controlled with your
DV30 from one remote. They also are supplied with a matching DD30 dock for iPod.
Your speakers are an important part of the equation and we recommend speakers
from our Sirocco range which have been designed to the same exacting standards as
this product and are a perfect acoustic and aesthetic match.
Thank you for taking the time to read this manual; we recommend that you keep it for
future reference.
Matthew Bramble,
Cambridge Audio Technical Director
and the Sonata design team

Important safety instructions (continued)
Ventilation
Overloading
IMPORTANT - The unit will become hot when in use. Do not stack multiple units on top
of each other. Do not place in an enclosed area such as a bookcase or in a cabinet
without sufficient ventilation.
Do not overload wall outlets or extension cord as this can result in a risk of fire or
electric shock. Overloaded AC outlets, extension cords, frayed power cords, damaged
or cracked wire insulation, and broken plugs are dangerous. They may result in a shock
or fire hazard.
Ensure that small objects do not fall through any ventilation grille. If this happens, switch
off immediately, disconnect from the mains supply and contact your dealer for advice.
Be sure to insert each power cord securely. To prevent hum and noise, do not bundle
the interconnect leads with the power cord or speaker leads.
Positioning
Choose the installation location carefully. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight or close to
a source of heat. No naked flame sources, such as lighted candles, should be placed
on the unit. Also avoid locations subject to vibration and excessive dust, cold or
moisture. The unit can be used in a moderate climate.
This unit must be installed on a sturdy, level surface. Do not place in a sealed area
such as a bookcase or in a cabinet. Any space open at the back (such as a dedicated
equipment rack) is fine however. Do not place the unit on an unstable surface or shelf.
The unit may fall, causing serious injury to a child or adult as well as serious damage
to the product. Do not place other equipment on top of the unit.
Due to stray magnetic fields turntables or CRT TVs should not be located nearby due
to possible interference.
Cleaning
To clean the unit, wipe its case with a dry, lint-free cloth. Do not use any cleaning fluids
containing alcohol, ammonia or abrasives. Do not spray an aerosol at or near the unit.
Battery disposal
Batteries may contain substances harmful to the environment. Please dispose of
any discharged batteries with due consideration and in accordance with local
environmental/electronic recycling guidelines.
Loudspeakers
Electronic audio components have a running in period of around a week (if used
several hours per day). This will allow the new components to settle down, the sonic
properties will improve over this time.
Before making any connections to loudspeakers, make sure all power is turned off
and only use suitable interconnects.
Power sources
Servicing
The unit should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the
marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power-supply to your home, consult your
product dealer or local power company.
These units are not user serviceable, never attempt to repair, disassemble or
reconstruct the unit if there seems to be a problem. A serious electric shock could
result if this precautionary measure is ignored. In the event of a problem or failure,
please contact your dealer.
This unit has been designed to be left in Standby mode when not in use, this will
increase the life of the unit (this is true with all electronic equipment). To turn the unit
off, switch off at the rear panel. If you do not intend to use this unit for a long period
of time, unplug it from the mains socket.

5 SCART RGB
Use a SCART/Peritel cable to connect to the 21-pin SCART input jack of a TV. SCART
carries both audio (stereo) and video (as either Composite or RGB) at the same time.
With SCART RGB enabled, RGB and composite signals are output simultaneously via
the SCART socket. Your television will automatically select RGB (the better quality
signal) if it is able to support this signal. If you are having difficulty in obtaining an
RGB picture on your TV screen or want to check which SCART socket of your TV is
suitable, please consult your television manual.
Note: If RGB output via SCART is desired, then HDMI output must be set to ‘Off’ (HDMI
Resolution option) and SCART RGB must be selected instead of Component output
(Scart/Component option) in the Video Setup Menu.
6 Trigger In
The DV30 can be turned on and off (i.e. brought in and out of Standby mode) by the
presence of 5-12V DC at the Trigger input. The matching Sonata AR30 or DR30 2.1
receivers have a suitable output which provides such a trigger allowing them to
automatically turn the DV30 on or off as required.
8 2.1 Channel Audio Out
These sockets provide 2.1 output, i.e. stereo plus sub. They can be used to connect
to the 2.1 audio line-level inputs of an amplifier, AV receiver or amplified speaker
package as required.
Important Note
This unit has been designed to play video DVDs, compact discs,
recordable CDs (CD-R) and rewritable CDs (CD-RW) bearing the
identification logos shown here. No other discs can be used.
The CD-R/CD-RW discs should contain properly recorded TOC
(Table of Contents) information so that they can be played back.
This unit can play only the discs recorded in the CD-DA format
designed for music reproduction. Do not attempt to play a disc
containing other data, such as a CD-ROM for PCs with mp3 or
WMA files, on this unit.
7 Digital Outputs
Digital audio outputs can be used to connect to a suitable Audio/Video Receiver for
surround sound decoding (output must be set for ‘RAW Bitstream’ – refer to the Audio
Setup section). These outputs can also be used to connect to a separate DAC or digital
recording device (output must be set for ‘PCM Stereo’ – see Audio Setup section).
Note: The HDMI output can also carry surround sound or stereo audio (as well as
video). See the Audio Setup Menus section on page 23 for details.
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.
Important: To achieve the best results, we always recommend using high quality
Cambridge Audio leads which carry a lifetime guarantee.

HDMI connections
HDMI (High-Definition Multi-Media Interface) is a digital connection that can carry both
audio and video in one cable. Direct digital transfer of video and support for various
types of High Definition video content make this the best connection type for picture
quality.
TV or Monitor with
HDMI input

As HDMI can carry both digital audio and video, HDMI can also be used to connect to
AV receivers that support this function to allow decoding of surround-sound, etc. In
the diagram at right, option 1 shows direct connection to a TV while option 2 shows
connection via a surround-sound receiver with HDMI In/Out.
HDMI cable

DVI (Digital Video Interface) output can be supported simply by using DVI-to-HDMI
adaptors as these two connection types are compatible. When using DVI, only video
will be passed to the TV or monitor. A separate analogue or digital audio connection
would then need to be made from the DV30 to the AV receiver or TV.

The digital audio outputs can be used to send the surround-sound soundtracks of
DVDs to an external AV receiver (Note: SPDIF output must be set to ‘RAW Bitstream’
in the Audio Setup menu). The Sonata DV30 sends an undecoded audio bitstream to
the AV receiver for decoding into 5.1, 6.1 or 7.1, etc.

Surround-sound formats
Via its analogue outputs, the DV30 can play back CDs and DVDs in stereo or 2.1 output
when they have been encoded with Dolby Digital (5.1), Dolby Digital EX (6.1), ProLogic
II or IIx, or LPCM soundtracks.
In all cases, the DV30 will decode the soundtrack and output it as 2.1 (stereo plus
sub). Because it is a stereo unit, it cannot decode to 5.1, 6.1 or 7.1 outputs.
However, the machine is able to send a raw bitstream version of any soundtrack via
its digital outputs for decoding by an external AV receiver (such as Cambridge Audio’s
640R). This allows the decoding of the many surround-sound formats available in 5.1,
6.1 or 7.1 and beyond.
Dolby Digital EX
Also known as DD (3/3) or DD 6.1, this is an enhanced form of Dolby Digital. In addition
to the discretely encoded 5.1 channels, DD EX provides an extra sixth channel
(Surround Back, giving 6.1 or 7.1 with mono rear surrounds) matrix encoded into the
rear surrounds. Decoding Dolby Digital EX requires a Dolby Digital EX-encoded DVD
disc and a digital connection from the DV30 to a suitable AV receiver that can decode
this format. The DV30 will decode DD 6.1 soundtracks into analogue 2.1 only.
A brief guide to common surround-sound formats you may encounter follows:
Dolby ProLogic II
Dolby Digital (5.1)
This is the mandatory soundtrack encoding for DVD movies. Also known as DD (3/2) or
DD 5.1, DD provides (up to) 5.1 output from suitably encoded Dolby Digital DVDs. There
are five main channels (Front Left, Front Right, Centre, Surround Left, Surround Right)
and a Low Frequency Effects Channel for the subwoofer, all discretely encoded. Decoding
of Dolby Digital to full 5.1 requires a Dolby Digital encoded DVD disc (nearly all DVDs) and
a digital connection from the DV30 to a suitable AV Receiver. The DV30 itself can also
decode DD 5.1 soundtracks into analogue 2.1 only.
Note: Dolby Digital and DTS formats can sometimes carry fewer channels than their
maximum, e.g. Dolby Digital (2/0), in which case a Dolby Digital encoded signal is only
carrying a two-channel stereo signal (other channels inactive). This is dependent on
the way the DVD has been encoded during manufacture.
ProLogic II is a Dolby technology whereby five channels (Front Left, Front Right, Centre,
Surround Left and Surround Right) are encoded into a Stereo mix by an analogue
matrix process. This mix will just be played back as normal Stereo by equipment such
as the DV30 that does not decode PLII (as Stereo + Sub in the DV30’s case).
Decoding PLII soundtracks to five channels requires an analogue or digital connection
from the DV30 to a suitable surround-sound processor able to decode this format.
DTS 5.1, DTS-ES 6.1 Matrix, DTS-ES 6.1 Discrete, DTS Neo:6,
DTS 96/24
Various DTS technologies providing (up to) 5.1/6.1 (and 7.1 with mono rear surrounds)
output from suitably encoded DTS material. Some newer DVDs carry both the
mandatory DD and an optional DTS surround encoding on alternative audio tracks.
The DV30 cannot decode these optional DTS formats itself but is able to pass them,
via its digital outputs, for decoding externally by a suitable AV receiver. Decoding DTS
requires a suitably encoded DTS disc and a digital connection from the DV30 to an AV
Receiver capable of decoding the appropriate DTS encoding type.

Video formats
DVD player setup
Press Setup on the remote control to enter the DV30 Setup menus:
DVDs are encoded using the MPEG 2 lossy video format giving over two hours of highquality digital video on single layer discs or over four hours on dual-layer discs.
Note: Dual layer discs always exhibit a small pause or delay in playback when the layer
transition is made.
As well as the video itself, DVDs are also capable of storing up to eight alternative
tracks of digital audio, 32 subtitle tracks and nine camera angles (where used by the
film producers).
Setup
DivX is an even more compressed (than normal DVD) digital video format, rather like
MP3 for video. DivX compresses the video data to a fraction of its original size using
the more lossy MPEG 4 Part 2 compression. DivX enhances the basic MP4 encoding
by allowing extra features on the disc and various levels of quality or compression to
be applied at the encoding stage.
DivX or basic raw MPEG 4 files are supported by the DV30 on either CD or DVD discs.
The DV30 may also be able to play MP4 type files created with other CODEC programs
(such as Xvid®), but playback of these is not guaranteed.
The DV30’s on-screen Setup menu is available on all video outputs.
Note: The default setting for the HDMI output is ‘Enabled’.

Note: HDMI output must be set to ‘Off’ for this menu to be accessible. Select between
the following choices:
The default setting is ‘Enabled’. The default resolution is 720p (50Hz) for PAL, or 720p
(60Hz) for NTSC. Should you wish to change the resolution, select the one you desire:
Component-p – Enables progressive scan component (YPbPr) using the 3 phono/RCA
component outputs on the rear panel.
576p (50Hz) Progressive format PAL
720p (50Hz) Upscaled to PAL at 720 lines progressive

1080i (60Hz) Upscaled to NTSC at 1080 lines interlaced
1080p (60Hz) upscaled to NTSC at 1080 lines progressive
Component-i – Enables interlaced scan component (YCbCr) using the three phono/
RCA component outputs on the rear panel.
SCART RGB – Enables interlaced scan RGB + Sync using the SCART/Peritel output on
the rear panel.
Note: Not all TV sets can accept Progressive Scan Component and a blank screen may
result if the set does not support this format.
For Component-p, the component outputs will be 480p if the TV type has been set to
NTSC, or 576p if the TV type has been set to PAL. Similarly for Component-i, the
component outputs will 480i if the TV type has been set to NTSC, or 576i if the TV
type has been set to PAL. If the Auto setting is used the format will follow the disc type.
Note:
• The Composite (CVBS) and S-Video outputs are always present and always output
interlaced video, whether Component, RGB or HDMI is selected.
• Setting HDMI output to ‘On’ by selecting an output resolution disables the TV type
and SCART/Component menus and, in fact, always forces the component outputs
‘On’ in component-p (Progressive Scan) format.
• With HDMI output ‘On’, all analogue video outputs will output PAL if a 50Hz HDMI
mode is selected, or will output NTSC if a 60Hz HDMI mode is selected.
• With HDMI output ‘Off’, all analogue video outputs follow the TV type for their PAL/
NTSC mode choice.
Note: Selecting a 50Hz format will automatically cause the TV Type menu item to show
PAL. Selecting a 60Hz format will automatically cause the TV Type menu item to show
NTSC.
Important! If you select an HDMI resolution that your TV does not support, you may
lose the picture. In this case you may need to make an analogue video connection to
your TV to be able to see the picture again and select another resolution in the Setup
menu.

Important Note
Some TVs may have occasional problems re-acquiring an HDMI signal (no picture
or incorrect colour balance appears) when an HDMI setting is changed on the DVD
player.
For DVDs recorded with multi-angular scenes, you can change the angle of the screen.
There are two modes in the Angle Mark setting: ‘On’ and ‘Off’. When set to ‘On’, the
current playing angle number is displayed in the top right hand corner of the TV screen.
When set to ‘Off’, no angle mark number is displayed on the TV screen.
Should this happen, simply re-select the default HDMI Resolution via the DV30's

-- Dolby Digital S etup -Dynamic
When the DV30 is connected directly to a TV set which can receive stereo audio over
HDMI, PCM Stereo is the best setting to use. Your TV set will then always receive a
two-channel downmix from CDs or DVDs.
When HDMI Audio is set to ‘Follow SPDIF’, the HDMI output will follow exactly the SPDIF
output as per the previous section and table. When the DV30 is connected to an AV
receiver by HDMI, there are two possibilities depending on whether the receiver
accepts HDMI audio directly or switches HDMI video and uses SPDIF for digital audio
reception:
1. For AV receivers that can receive HDMI audio, set the HDMI Output to ‘Follow SPDIF’.
Now set the SPDIF Output to ‘Raw/Bitstream’. The AV receiver can now decode the
bitstream over HDMI into the formats it supports. The TV itself will then not receive
any audio (unless the receiver has the capability of making a stereo downmix and
outputting it over HDMI).
2. For AV receivers that switch HDMI and use SPDIF for audio reception, set the HDMI
output to ‘PCM Stereo’ and set SPDIF Output to ‘Raw/Bitstream’. The AV receiver
now receives and decodes surround-sound via the SPDIF connection. The TV will
always also receive a two-channel downmix directly from the DVD player over HDMI
which can be used if desired.
