About discs
Introduction
Discs that cannot be played back
Playable disc types
This system has been designed to play back the following
discs:
DVD VIDEO, DVD AUDIO, VCD, SVCD, CD
This system can also play back the following discs:
• Finalized DVD-R/RW discs recorded in the DVD
VIDEO format.
• CD-R/RW discs recorded in the following formats
- Music CDs (finalized discs)
- VCDs
- SVCDs
- MP3/JPEG discs recorded in ISO 9660 (for details, refer
to “About MP3/JPEG discs ”)
However, some discs may not be played back because of
their disc characteristics, recording conditions, or
damage or stain on them.
Only sounds can be played back from the following discs:
MIX-MODE CD
CD-G
CD-EXTRA

* Note on Region Code
DVD players and DVD VIDEOs have their own Region
Code numbers. This system can only play back a DVD
VIDEO recorded with the Region Code number and
video format mentioned above.
Examples:
If a DVD VIDEO with an improper Region Code
number is loaded, “REGION CODE ERROR!” appears
on the TV screen and playback cannot start.
• On some DVD VIDEOs, DVD AUDIOs, VCDs 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.
• The following discs cannot be played back:
DVD-ROM, DVD-RAM, DVD-R/RW (recorded in VR
format), CD-ROM, CD-I (CD-I Ready), Photo CD,
SACD, etc.
Playing back these discs will generate noise and
damage the speakers.
Damaged discs and discs in an extraordinary shape
(other than a disc of 12 cm or 8 cm in diameter) cannot
be played back.
About MP3/JPEG discs
Playable MP3/JPEG discs and files
• Discs recorded in the ISO 9660 format are playable
(except discs recorded in the “packet write” format
(UDF format)).
• Discs recorded in the multi-session format are also
playable.
• Files with an extension of “.mp3,” “.jpg” or “.jpeg”
(extensions with uppercase and lowercase letters
mixed are also acceptable) are playable.
Notes on MP3/JPEG discs and files
• A disc may not be played, or reading it may take a long
time depending on its recording conditions or
properties.
• The time needed for reading varies with the number of
groups or tracks (files) recorded on the disc.
• If a character other than single byte English characters
is used in the file name of an MP3/JPEG file, the track/
file name will not be displayed correctly.
• The order of tracks/groups displayed on the MP3
Control screen, and the order of files/groups displayed
on the JPEG Control screen may be different from that
of files/folders displayed on PC’s monitor screen.
• An off-the-shelf MP3 disc may be played in an order
different from that indicated on the label attached to
the disc.
• Playing an MP3 file including a still image may take a
long time. The elapsed time is not displayed until
playing starts. If playing starts, the elapsed time may
not be displayed correctly.
• This system does not handle the ID3 tag of the MP3
file.
• For an MP3 file, a disc with a sampling frequency of
44.1 kHz and transmission rate of 128 kbps is
recommended.
• This system can play a baseline JPEG file, excluding
monochromatic JPEG files.
• This system can play JPEG data taken with a digital
camera conforming to the DCF (Design Rule for
Camera File System) standard (when a function is
applied such as the automatic rotation function of a
digital camera, data goes beyond the DCF standard,
so the image may not be displayed).
• If data has been processed, edited and restored with
PC image editing software, the data may not be
displayed.
• This system cannot play animations such as MOTION
JPEG, or still images (TIFF etc.) other than JPEG, and
image data with sound.
• The resolution of 640 x 480 pixels is recommended for
JPEG files. If a file has been recorded at a resolution
of more than 640 x 480 pixels, display may take a long
time. An image with a resolution of more than 8192 x
7680 pixels cannot be displayed.
• Files recorded on DVD-R/RW discs cannot be played
back.
Caution for DualDisc playback:
The Non-DVD side of a “DualDisc” does not comply with
the “Compact Disc Digital Audio” standard. Therefore,
the use of Non-DVD side of a DualDisc on this product
may not be recommended.

About discs (continued)
Disc structure
DVD VIDEO
A DVD VIDEO consists of “titles” and each title
may be divided into “chapters”.
Title 1
Title 2
Chapter 1 Chapter 2 Chapter 3 Chapter 1 Chapter 2
DVD AUDIO
A DVD AUDIO consists of “groups” and each group
may be divided into “tracks”.
Some discs include a “bonus group” that requires a
password for playing (A page 27).
Group 1

VCD/SVCD/CD
VCD, SVCD and CD consist of “tracks”.
In general, each track has its own track number.
(On some discs, each track may also be further
divided by indexes.)
Track 1
Track 2
Track 3
Track 4
Track 5
MP3 [JPEG] discs
On an MP3 [JPEG] disc, each still picture
(material) is recorded as a track [file]. Tracks [Files]
are usually grouped into a folder. Folders can also
include other folders, creating hierarchical folder
layers.
This unit simplifies the hierarchical construction of
a disc and manages folders by “groups”.
Group 1
Track 1
[File 1]
Track 2
[File 2]
Group 2
Group 3
Group 4
Group 5
This product can recognize up to 1000 tracks [files]
in a disc. Also, the product can recognize up to 150
tracks [files] per group and up to 99 groups in a
disc. Since the unit ignores the tracks [files] whose
numbers are exceeding 150 and the groups whose
numbers are exceeding 99, they cannot be played
back.
• If there is any type of files other than MP3 [JPEG]
files in a folder, those files are also counted in the
total file number.

natural wood for the diaphragm in order to
reproduce the original sound faithfully (the
EX-A1 speakers also employ natural wood for
the cabinet).
The appearance will therefore be different for
each unit.
• Impedance of speaker that can be connected to the
main unit is within a range of 4C to 16C.
• In order to have a sufficient cooling effect, leave a
space of more than 1cm between the main unit and
the speakers or other objects.
• If the speaker cabinet gets dirty, wipe it with the
supplied cloth (EX-P1 only).

Radio Data System (RDS)
Receiving FM stations
with RDS
RDS (Radio Data System) allows FM stations to
send an additional signal along with their regular
program signals.
For example, the stations send their station names,
as well as information about what type of program
they broadcast, such as sports or music, etc.
When tuned to an FM station which provides the
RDS service, “RDS” appears on the display
window on the main unit.
Example:
You can receive the following types of RDS
signals.
PS (Program Service):
Shows commonly known station names.
PTY (Program Type):
Shows types of broadcast programs.
RT (Radio Text):
Shows text messages the station sends.
Enhanced Other Networks:
Refer to page 37.
NOTE
RDS may not work correctly if the received station is
not transmitting the signals properly or if the signal
strength is weak.
Alarm function
If an “Alarm !” (Emergency) signal is received
from a station while listening to the FM station
with RDS, the system automatically switches to
the station broadcasting the “Alarm !” signal,
except when you are listening to non-RDS
stations (all AM and some FM stations).

• When PS, PTY, or RT signals appear on the display
window, some special characters and marks may
not be displayed correctly.
Searching for programs
by PTY codes
(PTY Search)
One of the advantages of RDS is that you can

Listening to radio
Switching to a program
type of your choice
temporarily
The Enhanced Other Networks function allows the
system to switch temporarily to a broadcast program
of your choice (TA, News, or Info) from a different
station when you are listening to a RDS station.
• Enhanced Other Networks function is applicable
only to the preset stations.
1
Press TA/News/Info while
listening to an FM station with
RDS.
How the Enhanced Other Networks function
actually works:
CASE 1
If there is no station broadcasting the program you
have selected:
The system continues tuning in to the current station.
When a station starts broadcasting the program you
have selected, the system automatically switches to the
station. The data type starts flashing on the display
window.
When the program is over, the system goes back to the
previously tuned station, but the Enhanced Other
Networks function still remains activated.
CASE 2
If there is a station broadcasting the program you
have selected:
The system tunes in to the program. The data type starts
flashing on the display window.
2
While “SELECT” is flashing,
press PTY
or PTY
repeatedly to select the
Enhanced Other Networks data
type you want.
Example: when “News” is selected as the data
type
When the program is over, the system goes back to the
previously tuned station, but the Enhanced Other
Networks function still remains activated.
To cancel the Enhanced Other Networks
function, select “OFF” in Step 2.
• The Enhanced Other Networks function will also
be canceled when you change the source or
when you turn off the main unit.
NOTE
TA:

News: News
Info: Programs the purpose of which is to
impart advice in the widest sense.
OFF: The Enhanced Other Networks
function is canceled.

stations may not be compatible with this system.
• While listening to a program tuned in to by the
Enhanced Other Networks function, the station
does not change even if another network station
starts broadcasting a program of the same
Enhanced Other Networks data.
• If the stations alternate intermittently between the
station tuned in to by the Enhanced Other Networks
function and the currently tuned station, press TA/
News/Info to cancel the Enhanced Other Networks
function.
While the data type is flashing,
press TA/News/Info.
