About discs
Playable disc types
This system has been designed to play back the following discs:
DVD Video (DVD), Video CD (VCD), Super Video CD (SVCD),
Audio CD, CD-R and CD-RW.
• This system can also play back MP3 and JPEG files recorded on
CD-Rs and CD-RWs. (A pg. 23)
• This system can also play back finalized DVD-Rs recorded in
DVD VIDEO format. However, some discs may not be played
back because of their disc characteristics or recording conditions.

* Note on Region Code
DVD players and DVDs have their own Region Code numbers. This
system can only play back DVDs recorded with the color system of
NTSC whose Region Code number includes “1”.
Examples:
If a DVD with an improper Region Code number is loaded,
“REGION CODE ERROR” appears on the TV screen and playback
cannot start.
• The following discs cannot be played back:
DVD Audio, DVD-ROM, DVD-RAM, DVD-RW, CD-ROM,
CD-I (CD-I Ready), Photo CD, etc.
Playing back these discs will generate noise and damage the
speakers.
• On some DVDs, Video CDs or SVCDs, their actual
operation may be different from what is explained in this
manual. This is due to the disc programming and disc
structure, not a malfunction of this system.
Notes on CD-R and CD-RW
• User-edited CD-Rs (Recordable) and CD-RWs (Rewritable) can
be played back only if they are already “finalized”.
• This system can play back CD-Rs or CD-RWs recorded on a
personal computer if they have been recorded in the audio CD
format.
This system can also play back CD-Rs or CD-RWs if MP3 files
or JPEG files are recorded on them.
However, some discs may not be played back because of their
disc characteristics, recording conditions, or damage or stain on
them.
3
Especially, the configuration and characteristics of an MP3 disc
or a JPEG disc are determined by the writing (encoding) software
and hardware used for recording. Therefore, due to the software
and hardware used, the following symptoms may occur:
• Some discs may not be played back.
• Some tracks on an MP3 disc may be skipped or may not be
played back normally.
• Some files on a JPEG disc may be played back distortedly.
• Before playing back CD-Rs or CD-RWs, read their instructions
or cautions carefully.
• CD-RWs may require a longer readout time. This is caused by
the fact that the reflectance of CD-RWs is lower than that of
regular CDs.
About MP3 discs
MP3 is an abbreviation for Motion Picture Experts Group 1 (or
MPEG-1) Audio Layer 3. MP3 is simply a compressed data file
format. By using MP3 format, one CD-R or CD-RW can contain 10
times as much data as one regular CD.
About JPEG discs
A still-picture data compression system proposed by the Joint
Photographic Expert Group, which features small decrease in
image quality in spite of its high compression ratio.
Notes on MP3/JPEG discs
• MP3/JPEG discs (either CD-R or CD-RW) require a longer
readout time. (It differs due to the complexity of the directory/file
configuration.)
• When making an MP3/JPEG disc, select ISO 9660 Level 1 or
Level 2 for the disc format.
• This system supports “multi-session” discs (up to 5 sessions).
• This system cannot play “packet write” discs.
• The system can only play MP3/JPEG files with the following file
extensions;
MP3: “.MP3”, “.Mp3”, “.mP3” and “.mp3”
JPEG: “.jpg”, “.jpeg”, “.JPG”, “.JPEG” and any uppercase and
lowercase combination (such as “.Jpg”)
• If both MP3 files and JPEG files are recorded on a disc, set the
MP3/JPEG setting in the PICTURE menu to the appropriate
setting for the data to be read (“MP3” or “JPEG”). (A pg. 49)
• Some MP3/JPEG discs may not be played back because of their
disc characteristics or recording conditions.
Notes on MP3 discs only
• ID3* tags cannot be shown on the display.
* An MP3 file can contain file information called an “ID3 Tag”
where its album name, performer, track title, etc. are recorded.
There are two versions, ID3v1 (ID3 Tag version 1) and ID3v2
(ID3 Tag version 2).
• We recommend to record each piece of material (song) at a
sample rate of 44.1 kHz and at a data transfer rate of 128 kbps.
• Some tracks on an MP3 disc may be skipped or may not be
played back normally.
Notes on JPEG discs only
• We recommend to record a file at 640 x 480 resolution. (If a file
has been recorded at a resolution of more than 640 x 480, it will
take a longer time to be displayed.)
• This system can only play baseline JPEG files*. Progressive
JPEG files* or lossless JPEG files* cannot be played.
* Baseline JPEG format: Used for digital cameras, web, etc.
Progressive JPEG format:Used for web.
Lossless JPEG format: An old type and rarely used now.
• Some files on a JPEG disc may be played back distortedly.

When positioning the speakers, to obtain the best possible sound
from this system you need to place all satellite speakers at the same
distance from the listening position with the front of each speaker
facing toward the listener.
Center speaker
Powered subwoofer
When you cannot place them at the same distance from the
listening position, you can make adjustment so that
speakers operate as if they are placed at the best position.
(A
A pg. 50)
• Normally place the powered subwoofer in front of you. (Since
bass sound is non-directional, you do not need to place it at the
same distance as the other speakers.)
Front left
NOTE
• Although the satellite speakers and the powered subwoofer are
magnetically shielded, the TV screen may appear mottled. In this
case, keep the distance between them to the TV to over 10 cm
(4 inches).
• For safety reasons, always ensure that there is sufficient space behind
the powered subwoofer.
• When you position the satellite speakers in a relatively high place,
such as the top of your bookshelf, place them on a flat and level
surface.
• Speaker grilles are not removable (except SP-THM55C and
SP-THM55F). Trying to remove them by force may damage them.

Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Digital
• DTS Digital Surround

DAP modes
All Channel Stereo
% Dolby Surround
Dolby Pro Logic II*
Dolby Pro Logic II has a newly developed multichannel playback
format to decode all 2 channel sources — stereo source and Dolby
Surround encoded source — into a 5.1 channel.
The matrix-based encoding/decoding method used by Dolby Pro
Logic II makes no limitation for the cutoff frequency of the treble
from surround channel and enables stereo surround sound
compared to conventional Dolby Pro Logic.
Dolby Pro Logic II enables to reproduce spacious sound from
original sound without adding any new sounds and tonal coloration.
Dolby Pro Logic II has two modes — Movie mode and Music
mode:
• Pro Logic II Movie (PL II MOVIE)
Suitable for reproduction of Dolby Surround encoded sources
bearing the mark
. You can enjoy soundfield very
close to the one created with discrete 5.1 channel sounds.
% DTS Digital Surround**
Used to reproduce multichannel soundtracks of the software
encoded with DTS Digital Surround (
).
DTS Digital Surround (DTS) is another discrete multichannel
digital audio format available on CD, LD and DVD software.
Compared to Dolby Digital, audio compression ratio is relatively
low. This fact allows DTS Digital Surround format to add breadth
and depth to the reproduced sounds. As a result, DTS Digital
Surround features natural, solid and clear sound.
% DSP modes
DAP (Digital Acoustic Processor) modes
DAP modes have been designed to create important acoustic
surround elements.
The sound heard in a live club, dance club, hall or pavilion consists
of direct sound and indirect sound — early reflections and
reflections from behind. Direct sounds reach the listener directly
without any reflection. On the other hand, indirect sounds are
delayed by the distances of the ceiling and walls (see the diagram
below).
These indirect sounds are important elements of the acoustic
surround effects. The DAP mode can reproduce a realistic sound
field by adding these indirect sounds.
The following DAP modes are provided with this system.
LIVE CLUB
Gives the feeling of a live music club with a
low ceiling.
Suitable for reproduction of any 2 channel stereo music sources.
You can enjoy wide and deep sound by using this mode.
• When Dolby Pro Logic II is activated, the GPLII indicator
lights on the display window.
DANCE CLUB
Gives a throbbing bass beat.
HALL
Gives clear vocal and the feeling of a concert
hall.
Dolby Digital*
Used to reproduce multichannel soundtracks of the software
encoded with Dolby Digital (
).
Dolby Digital 5.1 ch (DOLBY D) encoding method (so-called
discrete multichannel digital audio format) records and digitally
compresses the front left channel, front right channel, center
channel, surround left channel, surround right channel and LFE
channel signals.
Since each channel is completely independent from the other
channel signals to avoid interference, you can obtain much better
sound quality with much stereo and surround effects.
PAVILION
Gives the spacious feeling of a pavilion with a
high ceiling.
• Pro Logic II Music (PL II MUSIC)
These DAP modes can be used to add the acoustic surround effects
while reproducing 2 channel stereo source, and can give you a real
“being there” feeling.
• When one of the DAP modes is selected, the DSP indicator lights
on the display window.
NOTE
• Dolby Digital software can be roughly grouped into two categoriesmultichannel (up to “5.1” channel) and 2 channel software. To enjoy
surround sounds while playing Dolby Digital 2 ch software, you can
use Dolby Pro Logic II.

Glossary
Aspect ratio
The ratio of vertical and horizontal sizes of a displayed image. The
horizontal vs. vertical ratio of conventional TVs is 4:3, and that of
wide-screens is 16:9.
Chapter
Multiangle
By recording multiple scenes progressing at the same time in a
single title, the user can select view angles. This feature is called
the multiangle function.
Multichannel
DVD is specified to have each sound track constitute one sound
field. Multichannel refers to a structure of sound tracks having three
or more channels.
Refers to individual chapters included in a title.
Multilanguage
Composite video signal
When a title is created to cope with multiple languages, it is
generally called a multilanguage title.
Refers to video signal comprised of three kinds of signals
combined: an image signal made up of luminance and chrominance
signals using the frequency multiplication technique; burst signal
providing the basis for color reproduction; and synchronization
signal.
Component video signal
A video signal system where parts of information necessary for
reproducing image signal comprised of the three primary colors of
light are transmitted via separate signal lines. Types of signal, such
as R/G/B, Y/PB/PR, etc., are available.
Parental Lock
A feature of this system to automatically determine whether or not
to reproduce particular DVD software by comparing its parental
level (a measure of undesirability of scenes, etc. from educational
viewpoint) set for the software beforehand with that set on this
system by the user; if the software’s level is less restrictive than the
user-set level, it will be reproduced.
Playback control (PBC)
A screen display prepared for allowing selection of images, sounds,
subtitles, multiangles, etc. recorded on a DVD.
Refers to the signal recorded on video CDs or SVCDs for
controlling reproduction. By using menu screens recorded on a
Video CD or SVCD that supports PBC, you can enjoy interactivetype software as well as software having a search function.
Interlaced scan
Progressive scan
In the conventional video system, a picture is shown on the display
monitor in two halves. The Interlaced scan system places lines of
the second half of the picture in-between lines of the first half of the
picture.
Progressive scan displays all the horizontal lines of a picture at one
time, as a single frame. This system can convert the interlaced
video from DVD into progressive format for connection to a
progressive display. It dramatically increases the vertical resolution.
JPEG
Region Code
A still-picture data compression system proposed by the Joint
Photographic Expert Group, which features small decrease in
image quality in spite of its high compression ratio.
A system for allowing discs to be played back only in the regions
designated beforehand. All the countries in the world are divided
into six regions, each region being identified by a specified Region
Code (or region number). If the Region Code given to a disc
includes a numeral which matches one in the Region Code of a
player, the player can play back the disc.
Disc menu
Letter box
A method of displaying wide images like movies in the center of a
4:3 TV screen with no part of the image deleted, by placing black
bands on the top and bottom of the screen. This name has resulted
from the screen form looking literally like a letter box.
Linear PCM (PCM: Pulse Code Modulation)
A system for converting analog sound signal to digital signal for
later processing, with no data compression used in conversion.
MP3
A file format with a sound data compression system. “MP3” is the
abbreviation of Motion Picture Experts Group 1 (or MPEG-1)
Audio Layer 3. By using MP3 format, one CD-R or CD-RW can
contain about 10 times as much data volume as a regular CD can.
59
Sampling frequency
Frequency of sampling data when analog data is converted to
digital data. Sampling frequency numerically represents how many
times the original analog signal is sampled per second.
Surround
A system for creating three-dimensional sound fields full of realism
by arranging multiple speakers around the listener.
Transfer rate
The rate of transferring digital data. Usually the measure is in baud
per second. The DVD system applies a variable transfer rate system
for high efficiency.
