1 FEATURES
1. Digital transfer connectors
The DVD-3910 can be connected to another digital transfer
compatible Denon component (AV amplifier, etc.) using a
single cable (included) for high quality digital sound with little
transfer loss.
(1) Denon Link terminal
This terminal can be used for digital transfer of not only
DVD video signals, but also multi-channel audio signals of
DVD audio.
(2) IEEE 1394 terminal
This terminal can be used for digital transfer of not only
DVD video signals, but also DVD audio signals, Super
Audio CD signals and other multi-channel audio signals.
6
Digital transfer of video signals is possible by connecting an
HDCP compatible display device equipped with one of the
connectors below using a special cable.
When playing DVD AUDIO with CPPM, the video signal cannot
be output, and then the audio signal cannot be output from the
HDMI connector too.
(3) HDMI connector
Digital video signals are transferred in color space (Y/Cb/Cr)
or RGB.
The audio signals can be transferred simultaneously, so
both audio and video signals can be transferred with a
single cable.
(4) DVI-D connector
Digital video signals are transferred in RGB.
ENGLISH
2. Super Audio CD multi-channel playback compatibility
In addition to playing DVD audio and video discs, the DVD3910 can play multi-channel Super Audio CDs with a playback
frequency range covering 100 kHz and a dynamic range of 120
dB or greater within the audible frequency range, and a
maximum of 5.1 channels can be output.
10. Thorough vibration-resistant design
(1) Mechanism using a hybrid loader.
(2) The pickup mechanism is positioned at the center to
reduce the effects of external vibrations.
(3) A heavyweight chassis and low center of gravity make for
a low vibration design.
3. AL24 Processing Plus at all channel
AL24 Processing Plus compensates the input digital data to
reproduce the sound with analog waveforms as close as
possible to those existing in nature and with 24-bit quality. The
result is increased musical reproduction capabilities of
reverberations, etc., at low levels, for a sound that seems to
draw you into the concert hall.
Equipped for not only the left and right channels but also for
the front left and right, the surround left and right, center and
subwoofer channels.
11. Multiple functions
(1) Still picture playback function
Kodak Picture CD (NOTE 6) and Fujifilm Fujicolor CD
(NOTE 7) can be played on the DVD-3910.
Still images stored in JPEG format on CD-R/RWs can also
be played.
(2) Windows Media™ playback function (NOTE 8)
Windows Media™ CDs can be played on the DVD-3910.
(3) Multiple audio function
Selection of up to 8 audio languages.
(The number of languages offered differs from DVD to
DVD.)
(4) Multiple subtitle function
Selection of up to 32 subtitle languages.
(The number of languages offered differs from DVD to
DVD.)
(5) Multiple angle function
The angle of view can be changed.
(For DVDs on which multiple angles are recorded.)
(6) GUI (Graphical User Interface) function
The DISPLAY button on the remote control unit can be
used to display player and disc information on the TV
screen.
(7) Marker function
The positions of up to five scenes can be stored in the
memory, so you can watch your favourite scenes
whenever you want.
(8) Playback disable function
This function can be used to disable playback of DVDs you
do not want children to watch.
4. High precision 24-bit D/A converter
The audio playback circuit includes an advanced segment type
D/A converter with the high technical specifications in the
business, manufactured by Burr-Brown, a company with an
established reputation for D/A converters. This high
performance D/A converter allows not only input of the 24bit/192 kHz data of DVD-Audio discs, it also includes an analog
pure FIR filter for ideal DSD playback of Super Audio CDs.
Furthermore, the same DAC is used unsparingly for the front,
the surround, center and LFE channels to provide optimum
sound quality during multi-channel playback as well.
5. HDCD® (High Definition Compatible Digital®) decoder
(NOTE 1)
HDCD is an encoding/decoding technology that greatly
reduces the distortion occurring at the time of digital recording
while maintaining compatibility with the conventional CD
format. HDCD allows 20-bit data to be converted into the 16bit data of current CDs with no loss in sound quality.
The use of this HDCD decoder makes it possible to achieve
the high resolution and low distortion characteristic of HDCD
when playing HDCD-compatible discs, and DENON’s digital
technology optimizes the high sound quality possibilities of
HDCD technology. Furthermore, normal CDs and HDCDcompatible CDs are automatically identified, and the optimum
digital signal processing for that type of disc is used.
6. Dolby Digital/DTS decoder (NOTE 2, 3)
The DVD-3910 is equipped with a built-in Dolby Digital/DTS
decoder, allowing you to recreate the atmosphere of a movie
theater or concert hall when using the DVD-3910 in
combination with an AV amplifier and speakers.
7. Progressive Scan circuit “DCDiTM” (NOTE 4)
The DVD-3910 is equipped with a high precision Progressive
Scan circuit “DCDi™” allowing it to reproduce movies and
other images on DVDs with a quality near that of the original.
8. Newly developed video processing circuit
The differences in brightness and color level between adjacent
picture elements in the horizontal, vertical and diagonal
directions are detected to adjust the contours. The brightness
signal and color signal are processed separately, resulting in
natural, clear images.

6 REMOTE CONTROL UNIT
2 The DVD-3910 can be controlled from a distance using the included remote control unit (RC-972).
(1) Inserting Batteries
q Remove the remote control unit’s rear cover.
w Place two R6P/AA batteries in the battery compartment in the
direction indicated by the marks.
e Close the rear cover.
Cautions On Batteries
• Use R6P/AA batteries in this remote control unit.
• Replace the batteries with new ones approximately once
a year, though this depends on the frequency with which
the remote control unit is used.
• If the remote control unit does not operate from close to
the main unit, replace the batteries with new ones, even
if less than a year has passed.
• The included battery is only for verifying operation.
Replace it with a new battery as soon as possible.
• When inserting the batteries, be careful to do so in the
proper direction, following the < and > marks in the
remote control unit’s battery compartment.
• To prevent damage or battery fluid leakage:
• Do not use a new battery with an old one.
• Do not use two different types of batteries.
• Do not short-circuit, disassemble, heat or dispose of
batteries in flames.
• Remove the batteries when not planning to use the
remote control unit for a long period of time.
• If the batteries should leak, carefully wipe off the fluid
from the inside of the battery compartment, then insert
new batteries.
(2) Using the Remote Control Unit
• When operating the remote control unit, point it at the
remote control sensor as shown on the diagram.
• The remote control unit can be used from a direct
distance of approximately 7 meters. This distance will
be shorter, however, if there are obstacles in the way
or if the remote control unit is not pointed directly at
the remote control sensor.
• The remote control unit can be operated at a horizontal
angle of up to 30° with respect to the remote control
sensor.

recreated using only the two front stereo speakers. This results in
a sound with a nearly natural sense of movement that seems to
surround the head, without the strong directivity characteristic of
multi-speaker systems.

no effect.

w When “DIGITAL OUT” is selected:
NORMAL (Factory default)
When playing DVDs recorded in Dolby Digital or DTS, bitstream signals
are output from the digital audio output terminals. When playing DVDs
recorded in linear PCM or packed PCM, linear PCM signals are output.
Select “NORMAL” when making digital connections to an AV
amplifier with built-in Dolby Digital and DTS decoder.
PCM
When playing Dolby Digital/DTS bitstream signals or DVDs recorded in
linear PCM or packed PCM, the signals are converted into 48 kHz/16bit PCM (2-channel) signals and output from the digital outputs. When
playing DVDs recorded in PCM, linear PCM signals are output.
3
e When “LPCM (44.1 kHz/ 48 kHz)” is selected:
OFF (Factory default)
When playing linear PCM or packed PCM DVDs that are not
copyright-protected, for 2-channel PCM audio signals up to 96 kHz,
linear PCM signals are output as such without being converted from
the digital outputs. (176.2 kHz and 192 kHz signals are converted to
88.2 kHz and 96 kHz, respectively.)
For DVDs containing multi-channel PCM signals, the digital signals
are down-mixed for output into two channels, front left and right.
(Only the front left and right channels are output for sources for
which down-mixing is prohibited.)
When playing copyright-protected linear PCM or packed PCM DVDs,
in consideration of copyrights, no digital signals are output for
sources exceeding 48 kHz/16 bits. When playing such sources,
either set to “ON” or make analog connections. (See page 14.)
ON
Linear PCM and packed PCM signals are converted to 44.1 kHz or
48 kHz and output. (The PCM digital audio output signals are
converted to 48 kHz or less in consideration of copyrights.) When
making digital connections to an AV amplifier that is not compatible
with 96 kHz/88.2 kHz signals, set to “ON”.
r When “SOURCE DIRECT” is selected:
OFF (Factory default)
Please set to OFF when performing speaker settings or setting the
delay time and playing back.
ON
Set to ON when playing back without performing the processing of
speaker settings. Performing this setting will result in the setting of
the DTS recommended all-channel, full bandwidth playback. (Note
that the volume of the sub woofer will increase by 5 dB, and there
will be an increase of 15 dB with a Super Audio CD.) This is also set
when playing back a 6-channel source of DVD audio that has been
recorded with all channels and full bandwidth. When set to “ON”,
the speaker size will be set to “Large” for all speakers and the sub
woofer will be set to “Yes”. When playing back software such as
this, perform the analog connections according to the software
instruction manual.

Using the DVD Menu
2 Some DVDs include special menus called DVD menus.
For example, DVDs with complex contents may contain guide menus, and DVDs with multiple languages may contain audio and
subtitle language menus.
These menus are called “DVD menus”.
Here we describe the general procedure for using DVD menus.

22 PLAYING MP3
Listening to MP3 CD, CD-Rs and CD-RWs
2 There are many music distribution sites on the internet from which music files in MP3 format can be downloaded. Music downloaded
as instructed on the site and written onto a CD-R/RW disc can be played on the DVD-3910.
If music recorded on commercially available music CDs is converted on a computer into MP3 files using an MP3 encoder (conversion
software), the data on a 12 cm CD is reduced into about 1/10 the amount of the original data. Thus, when written in MP3 format, the
data of about 10 music CDs can fit onto the one CD-R/RW disc. The one CD-R/RW disc can contain over 100 tracks.
✽ Values when 5-minute tracks are converted with a standard bit rate of 128 kbps into MP3 files and using a CD-R/RW disc with a
capacity of 650 MB.
✽ Uses of recordings you have made other than for your personal enjoyment are not permitted under the Copyright Law
without permission of the copyright holder.

NOTES:
• The DVD-3910 is compatible with the “MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3” standards (sampling frequency of 44.1 or 48 kHz). It is not
compatible with such other standards as “MPEG-2 Audio Layer 3”, “MPEG-2.5 Audio Layer 3”, MP1, MP2, etc.
• It may not be possible to play some CD-R/RW discs due to disc properties, dirt, warping, etc.
• The digital signals output when playing MP3 files are MP3 signals converted into PCM, regardless of whether the audio output
presetting is set to “normal” or “PCM”. The signals are output with the same sampling frequency as that of the music source.
• In general, the higher an MP3 file’s bit rate, the better the sound quality. On the DVD-3910, we recommend using MP3 files
recorded with bit rates of 128 kbps or greater.
• MP3 files may not be played in the expected order, since the writing software may change the position of the folders and the
order of the files when writing them on the CD-R/RW.
• Programmed playback are not possible with MP3 discs.
• When writing MP3 files on CD-R/RW discs, select “ISO9660 level 1” as the writing software format. This may not be possible
with some types of writing software. For details, refer to the writing software’s usage instructions.
• The number of files playable with the DVD-3910 is approximately 600 or less.
• With the DVD-3910 it is possible to display folder names and file names on the screen like titles. The DVD-3910 can display up
to 8 characters, consisting of numbers, capital letters, and the “_” (underscore) mark.
• If recorded in a format other than “ISO9660 level 1”, normal display and playback may not be possible. In addition, folder and file
names including other symbols will not be displayed properly.
• Be sure to add the extension “.MP3” to MP3 files. Files cannot be played if they have any extension other than “.MP3” or if they
have no extension. (with Macintosh computers, MP3 files can be played by adding the extension “.MP3” after the file name
consisting of up to 8 capital or numbers and recording the files on the CD-R/RW.)
• Do not apply stickers, tape, etc., to either the label side or the signal side of CD-R/RW discs. If adhesive gets on the surface of
a disc, the disc may get stuck inside the DVD-3910 and be impossible to eject.
• The DVD-3910 is not compatible with packet write software.
• The DVD-3910 is not compatible with ID3-Tag.
• The DVD-3910 is not compatible with play lists.
• The DVD-3910 is not compatible with MP3 PRO.
• Do not play CD-R/RW discs containing any files other than music CD files (in CDDA format), WMA, MP3 and JPEG files. Doing
so may result in malfunction or damage, depending on the type of file.

• The method of playback is the same as “Listening to Recorded MP3 CD/CD-R/CD-RW” on Pages 73 and 74.
• In the file display of the disc information screen, WMA files will be displayed with the “WMA” icon instead of the “MP3” icon. (Files
for which the “WMA” icon is not displayed cannot be played. There will be a skip and the next file with an icon will be played.)
NOTES:
• Files recorded with a sampling frequency (fs) of 44.1, and 48 kHz are supported.
• Programmed playback cannot be performed with WMA discs.
• The digital output at the time of WMA file playback is converted to PCM regardless of the initial settings.
• Please use discs that have been recorded in conformity with the ISO 9660 level 1/level 2 CD-ROM file system. (Extended formats
are excluded.)
• Copyright protected files cannot be played. Also note that depending on the writing software and conditions, playback might not
be possible, or the files might not be displayed properly.
• Playback of the CD-R/RW might not be possible depending on the disc characteristics, soiling, scratches, and other factors.
• Bit rates of 64 k to 160 kbps are supported for WMA files that have an extension of “.wma” or “.WMA”.
• This unit can display the folder names and file names on the screen. Up to 11 half-width alphanumeric upper case characters and
symbols (including the underscore symbol) can be displayed. Kanji, hiragana, katakana and other characters cannot be displayed.
• While in the stop condition, the DISPLAY button of the remote control can be used to switch and display the title names and the
artist names. (One folder has a capacity of up to 99 files.)
• Recorded discs with no more than 99 files per folder are recommended. Multiple folder configurations are possible; however,
depending on the configuration, recognition and playback of all the folders and files might not be possible.
• Multi-session discs can also be played back, however, playback of discs that have had session closure within 10 sessions.
• Direct track selection using the remote control numerical keys (0 to 9, and +10) can specify up to 179 tracks (179 files) per folder.
When 179 tracks are exceeded, while the unit is stopped, use the cursor buttons at the disc information screen to select the
files, and use the play button or the ENTER button to play.

JPEG format can be viewed.
• Files with sizes of up to 30 Mbytes can be displayed.
• It may not be possible to play some CD-Rs/RWs due to disc properties, dirt, scratches, etc.
• When storing JPEG files on the CD-R/RW, set the writing program to store the files in the “ISO9660 level 1” format.
• Be sure to give JPEG files the extension “.JPG” and “.JPE”. Files with other extensions or with no extensions cannot be viewed
on the DVD-3910.
• Do not apply stickers, tape, etc., to either the label side or the signal side of CD-R/RW discs. If adhesive gets on the surface of
a disc, the disc may get stuck inside the DVD-3910 and be impossible to eject.
• Do not play CD-R/RW discs containing any files other than music CD files (in CDDA format), WMA, MP3 and JPEG files. Doing
so may result in malfunction or damage, depending on the type of file.
