On cleaning
Precautions
On safety
• Caution – The use of optical instruments with
this product will increase eye hazard.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the
cabinet, unplug the player and have it checked by
qualified personnel before operating it any
further.
On power sources
• The player is not disconnected from the AC power
source as long as it is connected to the wall outlet,
even if the player itself has been turned off.
• If you are not going to use the player for a long
time, be sure to disconnect the player from the
wall outlet. To disconnect the AC power cord,
grasp the plug itself; never pull the cord.
• Should the AC power cord need to be changed,
have it done at a qualified service shop only.
On placement
Clean the cabinet, panel, and controls with a soft
cloth slightly moistened with a mild detergent
solution. Do not use any type of abrasive pad,
scouring powder, or solvent such as alcohol or
benzine.
If you have any questions or problems concerning
your player, please consult your nearest 3 dealer.
On cleaning discs
Do not use a commercially available CD/DVD
cleaning disc. It may cause a malfunction.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
Caution: This player is capable of holding a
still video image or on-screen display image on
your television screen indefinitely. If you leave
the still video image or on-screen display
image displayed on your TV for an extended
period of time you risk permanent damage to
your television screen. Projection televisions
are especially susceptible to this.
• Place the player in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the player.
• Do not place the player on a soft surface such as
a rug that might block the ventilation holes on the
bottom.
• Do not place the player in a location near heat
sources, or in a place subject to direct sunlight,
excessive dust, or mechanical shock.
On operation
• If the player is brought directly from a cold to a
warm location, or is placed in a very damp room,
moisture may condense on the lenses inside the
player. Should this occur, the player may not
operate properly. In this case, remove the disc
and leave the player turned on for about half an
hour until the moisture evaporates.
• When you move the player, take out any discs. If
you don’t, the disc may be damaged.
On adjusting volume
Do not turn up the volume while listening to a
section with very low level inputs or no audio
signals. If you do, the speakers may be damaged
when a peak level section is played.

Notes on playing DTS sound tracks on
a CD
• When playing DTS-encoded CDs,
excessive noise will be heard from the
analog stereo jacks. To avoid possible
damage to the audio system, the consumer
should take proper precautions when the
analog stereo jacks of the player are
connected to an amplification system. To
enjoy DTS Digital Surround™ playback, an
external 5.1-channel decoder system must
be connected to the digital jacks of the
player.
• Set the sound to “STEREO” using the
AUDIO button when you play DTS sound
tracks on a CD (page 48).
• Do not play DTS sound tracks without first
connecting the player to an audio
component having a built-in DTS decoder.
The player outputs the DTS signal via the
DIGITAL OUT (OPTICAL and
COAXIAL) jacks even if “DTS” in
“AUDIO SETUP” is set to “OFF” in the
Setup Display (page 71), and may affect
your ears or cause your speakers to be
damaged.

For 2 speaker setups
When you connect only 2 front speakers,
TVS (TV Virtual Surround) lets you enjoy
surround sound effects by using sound
imaging to create virtual rear speakers from
the sound of the front speakers (L: left, R:
right) without using actual rear speakers.
Select one of the following modes:
If the player is set up to output the signal from
the DIGITAL OUT (OPTICAL or
COAXIAL) jack, the surround effect will be
heard only when you set “DOLBY
DIGITAL” to “D-PCM” in “AUDIO
SETUP.” (page 71)
TVS (TV Virtual Surround) DYNAMIC
Uses sound imaging to create virtual rear
speakers from the sound of the front speakers
(L, R) without using actual rear speakers
(shown below). The sound imaging effect is
distinct and clearly reproduces each aural
element of the audio track.
This mode is effective when the distance
between the front L and R speakers is short,
such as with built-in speakers on a stereo TV.
TVS (TV Virtual Surround) NIGHT
The large sounds, such as explosions, are
compressed, but the quieter sounds are
unaffected. This feature is useful when you
don’t want to disturb other people but still
want to hear the dialog and enjoy the
surround sound effects of TVS WIDE.
TVS (TV Virtual Surround) STANDARD
Uses sound imaging to create virtual rear
speakers from the sound of the front speakers
(L, R) without using actual rear speakers. The
virtual speakers are reproduced as shown in
the illustration below. Use this setting when
you want to use TVS with 2 separate speakers
and retain the sound quality.

TVS (TV Virtual Surround) WIDE
Uses sound imaging to create virtual rear

virtual speakers are reproduced as shown in

an expanded effect that fills the area
surrounding the listener.
This mode is effective when the distance
between the front L and R speakers is short,
such as with built-in speakers on a stereo TV.

For 4 (or more) speaker setups
You can enjoy the following surround effects
by using the 2 front speakers and 2 rear
speakers.
Connect the player to the receiver with the
B-1 connection (page 21).
You can experience Dolby Surround (Pro
Logic) sounds or Digital Cinema Sound
(DCS). DCS uses sound imaging to shift the
sound of the rear speakers away from the
actual speaker position or create entire sets of
virtual rear speakers from one set of actual
rear speakers. “VIRTUAL REAR SHIFT,”
“VIRTUAL MULTI REAR,” and
“VIRTUAL MULTI DIMENSION” make
use of this technology.

NORMAL SURROUND
VIRTUAL MULTI REAR
Software with 2 channel audio signals is
decoded with Dolby Surround (Pro Logic) to
create surround effects. The rear speakers
will emit identical monaural sounds. If you
are using a center speaker, Dolby Surround
(Pro Logic) will also create the appropriate
sounds for the center speaker.
Uses sound imaging to create an array of
virtual rear speakers from a single pair of
actual rear speakers. The virtual speakers are
reproduced as shown in the illustration
below. The position of the virtual rear
speakers differs according to “REAR” or
“SIDE” setting of the rear speakers (page 72).

Additional Information
Digital audio compression technology
developed by Dolby Laboratories. This
technology conforms to 5.1-channel
surround sound. The rear channel is stereo
and there is a discrete subwoofer channel in
this format. Dolby Digital provides the same

A disc that contains up to 8 hours of moving
pictures even though its diameter is the same
as a CD.
The data capacity of a single-layer and
single-sided DVD is 4.7 GB (Giga Byte),
which is 7 times that of a CD. The data
capacity of a double-layer and single-sided
DVD is 8.5 GB, a single-layer and doublesided DVD is 9.4 GB, and double-layer and
double-sided DVD is 17GB.
The picture data uses the MPEG 2 format,
one of the worldwide standards of digital
compression technology. The picture data is
compressed to about 1/40 (average) of its
original size. The DVD also uses a variable
rate coding technology that changes the data
to be allocated according to the status of the
picture. Audio information is recorded in
Dolby Digital as well as in PCM, allowing
you to enjoy a more real audio presence.
Furthermore, various advanced functions
such as the multi-angle, multilingual, and
Parental Control functions are provided with
the DVD.
