Notes on playing DTS sound tracks on a DVD
The signals of the DTS sound tracks are output only when you have made the
connections using an optical digital connecting cord. No sound will be output when
you have made the connections using an audio connecting cord.
• If the player is connected to an audio component lacking a built-in DTS decoder, do
not set “DTS” in “DIGITAL OUT” to “ON” in “AUDIO SETUP” in the setup
display. Otherwise, when you play the DTS sound track, a loud noise will come out
from the speakers, affecting your ears or causing the speakers to be damaged.
• When you set “DTS” in “DIGITAL OUT” to “OFF,” no sound will come out even if
you have made the connections using an optical digital connecting cord and play
DTS sound tracks on DVDs.

display, and may affect your ears or cause your speakers to be damaged.
• Set the sound to “STEREO” when you play DTS sound tracks on a CD. (See
“Changing the Sound” on page 52.) If you have made the connections using an
optical digital connecting cord and set the sound to “1/L” or “2/R,” no sound will
come out.
• If you have made the connections using an audio connecting cord and play a CD
with a DTS sound track, a loud noise may come out, affecting your ears or causing
the speakers to be damaged.

– you have made the connections using an optical digital connecting cord
(when you set “DOLBY DIGITAL” to “D-PCM” in “DIGITAL OUT”)
• DOLBY SURROUND: when the player is connected to an audio
component that conforms to Dolby Surround (Pro Logic). The output
signals which reproduce the Dolby Surround (Pro Logic) effect are mixed
down to 2 channels.
• NORMAL: when the player is connected to an audio component that does
not conform to Dolby Surround (Pro Logic). The signal without the Dolby

connecting cord. For connection details, see pages 17 and 20.
Note
When you have made the connections using an optical digital connecting cord and
play sound tracks with a 96 kHz sampling frequency, the output signals are converted
to 48 kHz (sampling frequency). When you have made the connections using an
audio connecting cord, sampling frequency stays at 96 kHz and the output signals are
converted to analog signals.
x DOLBY DIGITAL
Selects the Dolby Digital signals to be output when you have made the
connections using an optical digital connecting cord.
• D-PCM (Downmix PCM): when you play Dolby Digital sound tracks, the
output audio signals are mixed down to 2 channels. You can select
whether the signals conform to Dolby Surround (Pro Logic) or not by
making adjustments to the “DOWNMIX” item in “AUDIO SETUP.”
• DOLBY DIGITAL: when the player is connected to an audio component
with a built-in Dolby Digital decoder.
If the player is connected to an audio component lacking a built-in Dolby
Digital decoder, do not set this. Otherwise, when you play the Dolby

Additional Information
Glossary
Bit rate (page 62)
Value indicating the amount of video
data compressed in a DVD per second.
The unit is Mbps (Mega bit per second).
1 Mbps indicates that the data per
second is 1,000,000 bits. The higher the
bit rate, the larger the amount of data.
However, this does not always mean
that you can get higher quality pictures.
Chapter (page 7)
Sections of a picture or a music piece on
a DVD that are smaller than titles. A title
is composed of several chapters. Each
chapter is assigned a chapter number
enabling you to locate the chapter you
want.
Digital Cinema Sound (DCS) (page 58)
The general name of technology that
Sony developed to enjoy surround
sound in a home. It simulates the sound
of a movie editing studio instead of the
usual concert hall so that you can enjoy
the surround sound of a movie theater
in the comfort of your own home. The
VES (Virtual Enhanced Surround)
system contained in DCS programs can
create the sound image of virtual rear
speakers from the sound of the front
speakers (L, R) without using actual rear
speakers.
Dolby Digital (pages 20, 92)
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 5.1 discrete channels
of high quality digital audio found in
Dolby Digital cinema audio systems.
Good channel separation is realized
because all of the channel data is
recorded discretely and processed in
digital.
Dolby Pro Logic (page 91)
Audio signal processing technology that
Dolby Laboratories developed for
surround sound. When the input signal
contains a surround component, the Pro
Logic process outputs the front, center
and rear signals. The rear channel is
monaural.
DTS (page 8, 92)
Digital audio compression technology
that Digital Theater Systems, Inc.
developed. This technology conforms to
5.1-channel surround. The rear channel
is stereo and there is a discrete
subwoofer channel in this format. DTS
provides the same 5.1 discrete channels
of high quality digital audio. Good
channel separation is realized because
all of the channel data is recorded
discretely and processed in digital.
DVD (page 6)
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 dual-layer and single-sided
DVD is 8.5 GB, a single-layer and
double-sided DVD is 9.4 GB, and a duallayer and double-sided DVD is 17 GB.
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
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.
continued
Additional Information
105
Glossary (continued)
Audio data 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.
MPEG audio (page 92)
International standard coding system
used to compress audio digital signals
authorized by ISO/IEC. MPEG 1
conforms to up to 2-channel stereo.
MPEG 2 used on DVDs conforms to up
to 7.1-channel surround.
Multi-angle function (page 56)
Various angles for the scene (viewpoints
of the video camera) are recorded on
some DVDs.
Multilingual function (pages 26, 55, 79)
Several languages for the audio track or
sub-titles in a picture are recorded on
some DVDs.
Parental Control (page 84)
A function of the DVD used to limit
playback of the disc according to the age
of the user and the limitation level in
each country. The limitation varies from
disc to disc; when it is activated,
playback is completely prohibited,
violent scenes are skipped or replaced
with other scenes, and so on.
Playback Control (PBC) (page 37)
Signals encoded on VIDEO CDs (Version
2.0) to control playback.
By using menus recorded on VIDEO
CDs with PBC functions, you can enjoy
playing simple interactive programs,
programs with search functions, and so
on.

Additional Information
Title (page 7)
The longest section of a picture or a
music piece on a DVD; a movie, etc., for
a picture piece on video software; or an
album, etc., for a music piece on audio
software. Each title is assigned a title
number enabling you to locate the title
you want.
Track (page 7)
Sections of a picture or a music piece on
a CD or VIDEO CD. Each track is
assigned a track number enabling you to
locate the track you want.
VIDEO CD (page 6)
A compact disc that contains moving
pictures.
The picture data uses the MPEG 1
format, one of the worldwide standards
of digital compression technology. The
picture data is compressed to about 1/
140 of its original size. Consequently, a
12 cm VIDEO CD can contain up to 74
minutes of moving pictures.
VIDEO CDs also contain compact audio
data. Sounds outside the range of
human hearing are compressed while
the sounds we can hear are not
compressed. VIDEO CDs can hold 6
times the audio information of
conventional audio CDs.
There are 2 versions of VIDEO CDs.
• Version 1.1: You can play only moving
pictures and sounds.
• Version 2.0: You can play highresolution still pictures and enjoy PBC
functions.
This player conforms to both versions.
