INTRODUCTION
The GOLDMUND EIDOS 19 Universal Player
Goldmund was founded in 1978 and has ever since been dedicated to the accurate reproduction of sound
and image.
At Goldmund, we strive to lead in the creation, development and manufacture of the industry’s most
advanced technologies, including audio and video systems, home - networking and music distribution.
The guiding principle at Goldmund is to produce a precise sound with the least possible loss of quality
through the different stages. Goldmund will never adopt a technology before it is sufficiently developed to
satisfy the high quality standards we set. This is why Goldmund has often rejected mainstream technologies
and developed its own.

If you are a technician, musician, or a user who demands the very best in sound transcription,
we strongly recommend the use of one of our separate D/A converters - the Goldmund Mimesis
20M, Mimesis 21+ or SRDA2.
The built-in D/A converters are not up to the same quality standard and are provided for use in

The power supply of your unit has been adjusted to operate with the AC voltage of your area.
Check on the back panel of the unit if in any doubt. If you move after purchasing the player to
an area using different mains voltage, do not forget to switch the back panel selector to the new
voltage of your area. The unit tolerates 50 or 60 Hz mains.

C H O I C E O F T H E P L AY E R L O C AT I O N
To get the best result, especially in audio, you will have to select a very rigid support for your
DVD transport.
Due to the specific quality of its Goldmund «Mechanical Grounding» construction, the Goldmund
DVD Player is less critical than other designs in placement selection. Feedback is mostly so low
that no special precaution is required. Nevertheless, position the player as far as you can from
speakers if you want to totally avoid air coupling between the speakers and the player.
Locate the support so the transport has the most rigid possible connection to the floor. Solid
coupling is essential, and if your support is standing on a suspended floor, the support must
have at least one foot over a supporting beam or be located close to a supporting wall.
2.4
POWER CONNECTION
Plug the AC power cord to the back of the Eidos 19 and into a wall socket.
Switch the back power switch ON.
The front display will glow on as soon as you press any key or when pressing the remote control
STANDBY/ON button, meaning the unit is now powered on.

VIDEO CONNECTIONS
The EIDOS 19 offers 3 different type of Video signal outputs:
❑ S-Video Output connector.
❑ 3 x 75 Ohms RCA coaxial Component Video Output connectors.
❑ DVI Digital Video Output
Depending on your specific installation you may choose one of the above video outputs.
Always use high quality cables to get the best picture. The best results will be achieved by using
high quality DVI cable from the Digital Video Output. Always experiment to find the best
selection, readjusting the color and hue accordingly.

AUDIO CONNECTIONS
The Goldmund Eidos 19 is equipped as standard with the following stereo output standard
connectors:
❑ 75 Ohms RCA coaxial SPDIF connector.
❑ TOSLINK optical cable output.
You may use these connectors to connect your player to a D/A converter or digital preamplifier.
Goldmund recommends that the greatest care is taken when selecting the cable linking the
player to the D/A converter or digital preamplifier. The very accurate signal provided by the Eidos
19 can easily be ruined by an imperfect connection.
Use a «Goldmund Lineal TM » cable from the coaxial output if you want to reach the most
accurate jitter-free connection for CD playback.
In addition, there are the following analog Audio Outputs:
❑ 2 x RCA (Left/Right) coaxial stereo analog outputs.
❑ 6 x RCA 6 channel coaxial analog outputs
(needed for multichannel DVD-Audio and SACD connection).

SETTING THE TV SYSTEM
The default setting of this player is AUTO, and unless you notice that the picture is distorted
when playing some discs, you should leave it set to AUTO. If you experience picture distortion
with some discs, set the TV system to match your country or region’s system. Doing this,
however, may restrict the kinds of disc you can watch. The table below shows what kinds of
discs are compatible with each setting (AUTO, PAL and NTSC).
1 If the player is on, press STANDBY/ON to switch it to standby.
2 Using the front panel controls, hold down “Forward” then press STANDBY/ON
to switch the TV system.
The TV system changes as follows:
Note: You have to switch the player into standby
(press STANDBY/ON) before each change.

Watching NTSC on a PAL TV
Most models of the newly developed countdown PAL TV system detect 50 Hz(PAL)/
60 Hz (NTSC) and automatically switch vertical amplitude, resulting in a display without vertical
shrinkage. If your PAL TV does not have a V-Hold control, you may not be able to watch NTSC
discs because of picture roll. If the TV has a V-Hold control, adjust it until the picture stops rolling.
On some TVs, the picture may shrink vertically, leaving black bands at the top and bottom of the
screen. This is not a malfunction; it is caused by the NTSC to PAL conversion.

INTRODUCTION
Most of the features described in this chapter make use of on-screen displays. For an
explanation of how to navigate these, see Using the on-screen displays above.
Many of the functions covered in this chapter apply to DVD and SACD discs, Video CDs, CDs and
MP3 discs, although the exact operation of some varies slightly with the kind of disc loaded.
Some DVD discs restrict the use of some functions (random or repeat, for example). This is not
a malfunction.
When playing Video CDs, some of the functions are not available during PBC
playback. If you want to use them, start the disc playing using a number button to select a track.
USING
THE
DISC NAVIGATOR
TO BROWSE THE CONTENTS OF A DISC.
Use the Disc Navigator to browse through the contents of a disc to find the part you want to
play. You can use the Disc Navigator when a disc is playing or stopped.
Note: It’s not possible to use the Disc Navigator
when playing a Video CD in PBC mode, or when a
DVD disc menu is displayed.
1 Press SETUP and select ‘Disc Navigator’ from the on-screen display.
Alternatively, if a DVD-RW, CD, Video CD or MP3 disc is loaded, you can press MENU, which
takes you straight to the Disc Navigator
2 Select what you want to play.
Depending on the type of disc you have loaded, the Disc Navigator looks slightly different.
Note: It’s not possible to switch between Original
and Play list during playback. Not all DVD-RW discs
have a Play list.
Note: The Disc Navigator is not available unless
there is a disc loaded.

your DVD player.
Some discs also support the country code feature. The player does not play certain scenes on
these discs, depending on the country code you set.
Before you can set the Parental Lock level or the country code you must register a password. As
the password owner, you can change the Parental Lock level or country code whenever you like.
You can also change the password.

malfunction.
When set to DTS CD Playback, playback is optimized for DTS CDs. In this mode you cannot play
standard audio CDs through the analog outputs. Change the setting back to PCM Playback to
play standard CDs.

THE INITIAL SETTINGS MENU
Note: Even if you set Audio Output Mode to 5.1
Channel, you’ll only get sound from all speakers
when playing a multichannel DVD-Audio disc, SACD,
or Dolby Digital or DTS encoded DVD disc.
- When set to 5.1 Channel, only the front left/right channels
are output from the AUDIO OUT (2ch) jacks. Change to 2
Channel if you want to listen to downmixed stereo audio
(for example, because you are listening through the TV’s
built-in speakers).
- When set to 5.1 Channel there is no digital output when
playing DVD-Audio.
- If you set to 2 Channel, Dolby Digital, DTS and MPEG
audio is mixed down to two channels so you still hear all
the audio recorded on the disc.
- Some DVD-Audio discs don’t allow down-mixing of audio.
These discs always output multi-channel audio regardless
of the setting made here.
Note: You can see the effect of your changes in the
room graphic on the right of the screen.
- Except for the subwoofer, you can set speaker size to
Large or Small. If the main speaker cone in the speaker
is 12cm or more, set to Large, otherwise set to Small
(or Off if you don’t have that speaker).
- If you set the front L and R speakers to Small, the center
and surround speakers are automatically set to Small and
the subwoofer to On.
- The subwoofer can only be set to On or Off.
Note: When listening to a DVD-Audio or DTS source,
the C, LS, and RS speakers will automatically be set
to the Large size setting. However, the sound will not
be affected by the change. Listening to another
source will return the speakers to their original
settings.
- For DVD-Audio only, if the C, LS, or RS speaker is set to
Off, the audio is automatically down-mixed to stereo.
