on the extent and contour of space through
which sound waves move and on how
sounds bounce off the stage, walls, floors
and ceilings. At a live performance you
hear music in three stages: direct sound,
early reflections, and late reflections, or reverberations. Those factors are programed
into the SFC circuitry to recreate the acoustics of various performance settings.

CAUTION
! Carrying out auto TA and EQ under the following conditions may damage the speakers. Be
sure to check the conditions thoroughly before carrying out auto TA and EQ.
— When speakers are incorrectly connected.
(e.g., When a rear speaker is connected to
a subwoofer output.)
— When a speaker is connected to a power
amp delivering output higher than the
speaker’s maximum input power capability.
! If the microphone is placed in an unsuitable
position the measurement tone may become
loud and measurement may take a long time,
resulting in a drain on battery power. Be sure
to place the microphone in the specified location.
Before operating the auto TA and EQ
function
! Carry out auto TA and EQ in as quiet a
place as possible, with the car engine and
air conditioning switched off. Also cut
power to car phones or portable telephones
in the car, or remove them from the car before carrying out auto TA and EQ. Sounds
other than the measurement tone (surrounding sounds, engine sound, telephones ringing etc.) may prevent correct
measurement of the car interior acoustic
characteristics.
! Be sure to carry out auto TA and EQ using
the supplied microphone. Using another
microphone may prevent measurement, or
result in incorrect measurement of the car
interior acoustic characteristics.

2 Fix the supplied microphone in the center of the headrest of the driver’s seat, facing forward, using the belt (sold
separately).
The auto TA and EQ may differ depending on
where you place the microphone. If desired,
place the microphone on the front passenger
seat to carry out auto TA and EQ.
Available accessories
! When front speaker is not connected, auto
TA and EQ cannot be carried out.
! When this unit is connected to a power
amp with input level control, auto TA and
EQ may not be possible if you lower power
amp input level. Set the power amp’s input
level to the standard position.
! When this unit is connected to a power
amp with an LPF, turn off the LPF on the
power amp before carrying out auto TA and
EQ. In addition, the cut-off frequency for
built-in LPF of an active subwoofer should
be set to the highest frequency.
! The time alignment value calculated by
auto TA and EQ may differ from the actual
distance in the following circumstances.
However, the distance has been calculated
by computer to be the optimum delay to
give accurate results for the circumstances, so please continue to use this
value.
— When the reflected sound within a vehicle is strong and delays occur.
— When delays occur for low sounds due
to the influence of the LPF on active
subwoofers or external amps.
! Auto TA and EQ changes the audio settings
as below:
— The fader/balance settings return to the
center position. (Refer to page 53.)
— The equalizer curve switches to FLAT.
(Refer to page 61.)
— When a subwoofer is connected to this
unit, it will be adjusted automatically to
both subwoofer output and high pass filter setting for rear speaker.
! If you carry out auto TA and EQ when a previous setting of this already exists, the setting will be replaced.

Terms
AAC
AAC is short for Advanced Audio Coding and
refers to an audio compression technology
standard used with MPEG 2 and MPEG 4.
Bit rate
This expresses data volume per second, or bps
(bits per second) units. The higher the rate,
the more information is available to reproduce
the sound. Using the same encoding method
(such as MP3), the higher the rate, the better
the sound.
Chapter
DVD titles are in turn divided into chapters
which are numbered in the same way as the
chapters of a book. With DVD video discs featuring chapters, you can quickly find a desired
scene with chapter search.
DivX
DivX is a popular media technology created by
DivX, Inc. DivX media files contain highly compressed video with high visual quality that
maintains a relatively small file size. DivX files
can also include advanced media features like
menus, subtitles, and alternate audio tracks.
Many DivX media files are available for download online, and you can create your own
using your personal content and easy-to-use
tools from DivX.com.
DivX Certified
DivX Certified products are officially tested by
the creators of DivX and guaranteed to play all
versions of DivX video, including DivX 6.
Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II can create five full-bandwidth output channels from two-channel
sources. This new technology enables a discrete 5-channel playback with 2 front channels, 1 center channel, and 2 rear channels. A
music mode is also available for 2-channel
sources in addition to the movie mode.
DTS
This stands for Digital Theater Systems. DTS is
a surround system delivering multi-channel
audio from up to 6 independent channels.
Dynamic range control
Dolby Digital has a function for compressing
the difference between the loudest and softest
sounds: Dynamic range control. This control
ensures sounds with an increased dynamic
range are heard clearly even at low volume levels.
Additional Information
Aspect ratio
This is the width-to-height ratio of a TV screen.
A regular display has an aspect ratio of 4:3.
Wide screen displays have an aspect ratio of
16:9, providing a bigger picture for exceptional
presence and atmosphere.
the same as the Dolby Digital surround sound
system used in theaters.
EXIF (Exchangeable image file)
A file format developed by Fuji Photo Film for
digital still cameras. Digital cameras from various manufacturers use this compressed file
format which carries date, time and thumbnail
information, as well as the picture data.
ID3 tag
This is a method of embedding track-related
information in an MP3 file. This embedded information can include the track title, the artist’s name, the album title, the music genre,
the year of production, comments and other
data. The contents can be freely edited using
software with ID3 Tag editing functions.
Although the tags are restricted as to the number of characters, the information can be
viewed when the track is played back.
Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital provides multi-channel audio
from up to 5.1 independent channels. This is
En

Appendix
Additional Information
ISO9660 format
This is the international standard for the format logic of CD-ROM folders and files. For the
ISO9660 format, there are regulations for the
following two levels.
Level 1:
The file name is in 8.3 format (the name consists of up to 8 characters, half-byte English
capital letters and half-byte numerals and the
“_” sign, with a file-extension of three characters).
Level 2:
The file name can have up to 31 characters (including the separation mark “.” and a file extension). Each folder contains less than 8
hierarchies.
Extended formats
Joliet:
File names can have up to 64 characters.
Romeo:
File names can have up to 128 characters.
JPEG
This stands for Joint Photographic Experts
Group, and is an international still image compression standard.
Linear PCM (LPCM)/Pulse code
modulation
This stands for linear pulse code modulation,
which is the signal recording system used for
music CDs and DVDs. Generally, DVDs are recorded with higher sampling frequency and
bit rate than CDs. Therefore, DVDs can provide
higher sound quality.
m3u
Playlists created using the “WINAMP” software have a playlist file extension (.m3u).
MP3
MP3 is short for MPEG Audio Layer 3. It is an
audio compression standard set by a working
group (MPEG) of the ISO (International Standards Organization). MP3 is able to compress
audio data to about 1/10th the level of a conventional disc.
78
En
MPEG
This stands for Moving Pictures Experts
Group, and is an international video image
compression standard. Some DVDs feature digital audio compressed and recorded using
this system.
MS ADPCM
This stands for Microsoft adaptive differential
pulse code modulation, which is the signal recording system used for the multimedia software of Microsoft Corporation.
Multi-angle
With regular TV programs, although multiple
cameras are used to simultaneously shoot
scenes, only images from one camera at a
time are transmitted to your TV. Some DVDs
feature scenes shot from multiple angles, letting you choose your viewing angle as desired.
Multi-audio (Multilingual dialog)
Some DVDs feature dialog recorded in multiple languages. Dialog in up to 8 languages
can be recorded on a single disc, letting you
choose as desired.
Multi-session
Multi-session is a recording method that allows additional data to be recorded later.
When recording data on a CD-ROM, CD-R or
CD-RW, etc., all data from beginning to end is
treated as a single unit or session. Multi-session is a method of recording more than 2 sessions on one disc.
Multi-subtitle
Subtitles in up to 32 languages can be recorded on a single DVD, letting you choose as
desired.
Number of quantization bits
The number of quantization bits is one factor
in the overall sound quality; the higher the
“bit-depth”, the better the sound quality. However, increasing the bit-depth also increases
the amount of data and therefore storage
space required.
Appendix
Additional Information
Packet write
This is a general term for a method of writing
on CD-R, etc., at the time required for a file,
just as is done with files on floppy or hard
discs.
Playback control (PBC)
This is a playback control signal recorded on
Video CDs (Version 2.0). Using menu displays
provided by Video CDs with PBC lets you enjoy
playback of simple interactive software and
software with search functions. You can also
enjoy viewing high- and standard-resolution
still images.
Additional Information
Parental lock
Some DVD video discs with violent or adult-oriented scenes feature parental lock which prevents children from viewing such scenes. With
this kind of disc, if you set the unit’s parental
lock level, playback of scenes inappropriate for
children will be disabled, or these scenes will
be skipped.
WMA
WMA is short for Windows Mediaв„ў Audio
and refers to an audio compression technology that is developed by Microsoft
Corporation. WMA data can be encoded by
using Windows Media Player version 7 or
later.
Windows Media and the Windows logo are trademarks or registered trademarks of Microsoft
Corporation in the United States and/or other
countries.
Region number
DVD players and DVD discs feature region
numbers indicating the area in which they
were purchased. Playback of a DVD is not possible unless it features the same region number as the DVD player.
Title
DVD video discs have high data capacity, enabling recording of multiple movies on a single disc. If, for example, one disc contains
three separate movies, they are divided into
title 1, title 2 and title 3. This lets you enjoy the
convenience of title search and other functions.
VBR
VBR is short for variable bit rate. Generally
speaking CBR (constant bit rate) is more
widely used. But by flexibly adjusting the bit
rate according to the needs of audio compression, it is possible to achieve compressionpriority sound quality.
