INTRODUCTION
GOLDMUND EIDOS REFERENCE BLUE – Blu-Ray 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, homenetworking 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.

ASSOCIATED EQUIPMENT
Sound technicians, musicians, or users who demand the very best in sound
transcription, may decide to use of one of our separate D/A converters, such as
the Goldmund Mimesis 22H. However, the D/A converters built into the Eidos
Reference Blue are high quality units that can be used with all systems and
formats.
To obtain the best quality out of your system, we recommend using one of the
Goldmund acoustic processors (Mimesis 32.5 or Mimesis 16.5).

POWER SUPPLY VOLTAGE SELECTION
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 Universal Player to an area using a different voltage, do not forget to
switch the back panel selector to the voltage used in your new country of residency.
The unit can operate at 50 or 60 Hz mains.

CHOICE OF PLAYER LOCATION
Thanks to the specific quality of the Goldmund Mechanical Grounding and the
Goldmund Magnetic Damping construction, the choice of the player location is not
critical when using the Eidos Reference Blue. Feedback is mostly so low that no
special precaution is required. Nevertheless, we recommend you position the
player as far as you can from the speakers if you want to totally avoid the air
coupling between the speakers and the player.
Locate the player to provide the most rigid possible connection to the ground.
Solid coupling is essential and the support used must be as rigid and solid as
possible.

POWER CONNECTION
Plug the AC power cord to the back of the Eidos Reference Blue and in a wall
socket. Switch the back power switch to “ON”. The front display will light up as
soon as you will press “OPEN” button on the front panel or when pressing the
remote control “POWER” button, indicating that the unit is powered on.
Unplug the power cord if you are not going to use the player for an extended period
of time. Hold the power plug when unplugging. Do not pull on the cord.

NOTE
In all system and specially in HDMI
wiring, to guarantee the HD signal
throughout the full system, Goldmund
recommends to perform all the wiring
when all units are turn off and
successively turn on the units
according to the following combination:
screen,
acoustic
processor
or
preamplifier and finally the player.

BACK PANEL CABLE CONNECTIONS
VIDEO CONNECTIONS
There are two HDMI output connectors for the video signal output; we recommend
using the HDMI 1 for video and HDMI 2 for audio. This configuration is required to
offer the best video quality.
NOTE
The Eidos Reference Blue uses the
HDCP stands for High-bandwidth
Digital Content Protection in HDMI
connection. To prevent copying of
digital audio and video content as it
travels across connections
HDCP encrypt the digital audio and
video content. The TV must support
HDCP in order to decrypt and properly
display the content.

PCM connection: Connecting to a Receiver/Amplifier in
PCM or Digital 7.1/5.1 multichannel
Goldmund recommends that the greatest care is taken when selecting the cable
linking the player to the D/A converter or the preamplifier. The very accurate
signal provided by the Eidos Reference Blue can easily be ruined by an imperfect
connection. Use a "Goldmund Lineal" cable from the coaxial output if you want
to achieve the most accurate jitter-free connection for CD playback.

Analog connection: Connecting to a Receiver/Amplifier in
Analog 7.1/5.1 multichannel
Please use 8 interconnect cables to connect the FRONT-L (Front Left), FRONT-R
(Front Right), SURR-L (Surround Left), SURR-R (Surround Right), Center, SUB
(Subwoofer), REAR-L (Surround Back Left) and REAR-R (Surround Back Right),
analog output terminals of the Eidos Reference Blue to the corresponding multichannel analog audio input of your A/V receiver or amplifier. If the A/V receiver or
amplifier only has 5.1ch audio input, the REAR-L (Surround Back Left) and REAR-R
(Surround Back Right) terminals do not need to be connected and set the Down Mix
option in the Setup Menu to 5.1ch to make sure that any 7.1 channel signals are
converted to 5.1 channels. Goldmund recommends using Goldmund Interco
cables.
Connecting to a Stereo Audio System
If your audio system only offers stereo audio inputs, or if you would like to connect a
dedicated stereo system in addition to the surround system, you can connect it to the
FRONT-L & FRONT-R audio output terminals of the player.
NOTE
The stereo audio output terminals will always provide a down-mixed stereo signal
from multi-channel sources. The “Down Mix” and other speaker settings in the Audio
Processing Setup Menu do not affect the stereo audio output.
Speaker Configuration applies to the multi-channel analog audio outputs only. All
digital bitstream and LPCM outputs are unaffected by these settings.

INTERNET & FIRMWARE
Internet connection
In order to utilize the BD-Live feature or to update the firmware via the Internet, the
player needs to be connected to a broadband Internet connection. It is not necessary
to connect to the Internet if you do not intend to use the network streaming, BD-Live
or online firmware update features.
Plug one end of a network cable (Category 5/5E straight Ethernet cable) into the
LAN port on the back of the Eidos Reference Blue.
• Plug the other end of the network cable into a LAN port on the broadband router
or modem.
• After physically connecting the player to a broadband Internet connection, some
network configuration may be required. Refer to your official Goldmund
representative for more details.
Firmware updates
The Eidos Reference Blue supports the BD-Live feature offered on some Blu-ray
Disc titles. BD-Live offers extra downloadable content and additional online
interactive programs. Content available on BD-Live varies by disc and studio, and
may include additional subtitles, commentaries, movie trailers, games, and online
chat. Connecting the player to the Internet will also allow the player to obtain
firmware updates.

• Firmware Information: Displays the currently installed firmware version.
• Firmware Upgrade: Upgrades the player’s firmware. This operation is only
available when the playback is completely stopped or when there is no disc
loaded.
The firmware is the system software that controls the features and functions of the
player. Since the Blu-ray Disc specifications are new and evolving, it is possible that
a Blu-ray Disc manufactured after the player was manufactured uses certain new
features of the Blu-ray Disc specifications. To ensure the best possible viewing
experience, the player may need a firmware update from time to time.
If the player has a working Internet connection (see page 11), you may upgrade the
player directly over the Internet. Please follow the instructions on your TV screen.
• Firmware Notification: Allows you to set whether the player should
automatically check for new firmware versions on the Internet server and notifies
you about new firmware.
• On – Checks for firmware updates automatically and notifies the user about
new firmware. Requires a working network connection.
• Off – Does not check for new firmware version automatically.

EXTERNAL CONNECTIONS
IR connection
The Eidos Reference Blue features an IR IN port on its back panel. If the player is to
be installed in an equipment cabinet where direct line-of-sight is not available for the
remote control, you can purchase an external IR Remote, Goldmund recommends to
use the iGoldmund Remote control in addition of your player.
WARNING
When an external IR sensor is plugged in, the original IR sensor window on the front
panel will be disabled.
• When an IR IN port receives a connector, the main remote functions are not
available.
• Goldmund cannot guarantee that the IR IN port will be compatible with devices
that are not recommanded by Goldmund. Connecting the IR IN port to an
incompatible device may result in damage to the connected device or the player.
• Please contact your official Goldmund support if you plan to integrate the player
into an IR distribution system. Customer support can provide recommendations
on how to properly connect the control signals.
RS232 control
The Eidos Reference Blue has an RS232 control port and can be integrated into
most custom home theater control systems.
Please ask your custom installer to contact Goldmund for the RS232 control
protocol.

SETTINGS
The Setup Menu of the Eidos Reference Blue player presents many setup and
configuration options. For most users, the default configuration will be sufficient and
will not require any changes to the settings. However if you need to configure the
player to perfectly match your home theater settings and viewing preferences, please
refer to the following sections for details about each configuration option.
Using the Setup Menu System
In many places of this guide, the player’s Setup Menu needs to be adjusted to match
your specific audio/video configuration. When performing menu adjustments, we will
use the following terminology to indicate the location of the desired function:
Setup Menu Section > Menu Item > Selection
Setup Menu Section is the uppermost Setup Menu level. There are six Setup Menu
sections listed in the left column of the Setup Menu screen. They are: Playback
Setup, Video Setup, Audio Format Setup, Audio Processing, Device Setup, and
Network Setup.
GOLDMUND EIDOS REFERENCE BLUE – Blu-Ray Player - 16

SETTINGS (Ctd.)
Menu Item is the parameter to be adjusted which appears in the center column of the
Setup Menu. Once you enter a Setup Menu Section, the list of Menu Items and their
current value are displayed in a box. Selection is the actual numeric or descriptive
element that represents the change being made to the selected parameter. It is the
item located to the right of its corresponding Menu Item.
A Scroll Icon appears at the top or bottom of the menu when there are more Menu
Items or Selections than what can fit in a screen. You may use the UP and DOWN
ARROW buttons to scroll the display in order to access additional items.
The diagram on the left should give a good description of the various elements and
their context. In this screen we could, for example, instruct you to set the Auto Play
Mode parameter to Off in the Playback Setup section.
To indicate where we were, you would see the following:
Playback Setup > Auto Play Mode > Off.
To exit the SETUP menu at any time, press the SETUP button on the remote
control or select Exit from the Setup Menu sections.
The settings are permanently saved when the player is turned off using either the
front panel power button or the remote control. If the AC power is interrupted before
the player enters standby status, the settings will not be saved. To ensure proper
saving of the SETUP menu settings, please turn off the player and turn it back on
after you make major changes to the SETUP menu options.
NOTE
It is possible that some setup items may be grayed-out and inaccessible. This can be
caused by a disc being played back or having changed a prerequisite setup item.
Please stop playback or eject the disc before trying to change these setup items. If
you still cannot access the setup item, please check for configuration conflicts and
consistency. For example, if Video Setup > 3D Output is set to Off, the 3D Setting
menu item will be grayed-out. Setting 3D Output to On (or Auto) will enable the 3D
Setting menu.

4. Auto Resume: Select whether disc playback will start from the previously saved
point or not. This setting applies to CDs, SACDs, DVDs and certain Blu-ray Discs.
• On – Playback automatically starts from the previously saved point.
• Off – Playback starts from the beginning.
5. Parental Control: Sets parental control ratings in order to prevent minors from
watching inappropriate content. This function depends on whether the disc has been
properly rated and encoded. Press the ENTER button to bring up the rating selection
menu.
Adjust the parental control settings by entering the current parental control password.
If you have not yet set a parental control password, default the password is “0000”.
The Parental Control Menu contains the following sub-items:
• BD Ratings – Press the UP/DOWN ARROW buttons to select the rating allowed
for Blu-ray Discs. Off means no ratings control and all discs are allowed to play.
Numbers 1 to 21 corresponds to the age limit. Discs encoded with an age limit that
is less than the selected age will be allowed, and any rating equal to or above the
selected age will be blocked.
• DVD Ratings – Press the UP/DOWN ARROW buttons to select the rating to
allow for DVDs. The available ratings are Kid, G, PG, PG-13, PGR, R, NC-17,
Adult and Off. These selected rating and above will be blocked, and any rating
below will be allowed. If Off is selected, all discs are allowed to play.
Area Code – Some Blu-ray Discs may have different parental control ratings for
different geographical areas. At this time the player only supports parental control
ratings used in the United States.
• Change Password – To change the parental control password, enter a 4-digit
number as the new password. Enter the new password again to confirm. If the two
entries match, the new password replaces the old parental control password.

6. Language: Configures language preferences. This menu contains the following
sub-items:
NOTE
• Player Language – Allows you to choose the language for the player’s Setup
Menu and the on-screen display. Currently the player supports 9 languages.
If your preferred language is not listed in the
Audio, Subtitle or Disc Menu options, select
“Other” and enter the Language provided by
your official Goldmund representative.
• Disc Menu Language – Allows you to choose the preferred language for
displaying DVD and Blu-ray Disc menus. If a disc menu of the selected language is
available, that menu will be shown instead of the default disc menu.
• Audio Language – Allows you to choose the preferred audio language for DVD
and Blu-ray Discs. If an audio track of the selected language is available on the
disc, the audio track will be played back.
• Subtitle Language – Allows you to choose the preferred subtitle language for
DVDs. If a subtitle of the selected language is available, it will be displayed. When
Auto is selected, the subtitle display is determined by the disc.
NOTE
The player can automatically adjust the
resolution of digital audio and video signals
depending on the capabilities of the
connected television and receivers.
For HDMI 1 OUT, the dedicated QDEO
video processor will be used unless Source
Direct is selected, in which case QDEO is
bypassed.
In Split A/V mode, HDMI 1 OUT has video
only with no audio, but HDMI 2 OUT will
have audio and possibly video. This is
because HDMI embeds audio into video
data so there must always be a video signal,
even if it’s only a blank screen, to carry
audio through.
Video Setup
The Video Setup section of the Setup Menu allows you to configure video output
options.
1. Picture Adjustment: Adjusts picture control settings. The Eidos Reference Blue
provides a wide array of picture controls. Please refer to the Picture Adjustment
section for more details about each control.
2. Dual HDMI Output: Allows you to select the output mode when both HDMI Output
ports are in use. If only one HDMI Output is active, this selection will not apply.
• Split A/V (recommended) – Use HDMI 1 OUT as the dedicated video output port
and HDMI 2 OUT as the dedicated audio output port. This setting will ensure the
best possible picture quality and the highest possible audio resolution.
GOLDMUND EIDOS REFERENCE BLUE – Blu-Ray Player - 20

SETTINGS (Ctd.)
• Dual Display – Send digital audio and video signals to both HDMI Outputs
simultaneously. This setting is only recommended when two HDMI displays are
required, since the surround sound audio signal may be down-mixed to stereo and
the original audio quality may be lost.
3. 3D Output: Allows you to choose the video output mode for 3D content.
• Auto – Outputs 3D if supported both by both the disc content and the display.
The player automatically checks for the existence of 3D content on the disc and the
3D compatibility of the TV or projector.
If both criteria are met, the player sends 3D video from its HDMI output terminals;
otherwise, only 2D video is sent out. Active shutter 3D glasses (which are not sold
by Goldmund) are required to enjoy the 3D movie on your TV.
• Off – Always output 2D video format, even when 3D video exists on the disc. This
guarantees the video quality if your TV is not 3D compatible, or if some necessary
components (such as the 3D glasses) are missing.
• Forced – Always output 3D video format for 3D Blu-ray Discs. You may
experience a black screen (no video output) if your TV is not 3D compatible.
4. 3D Setting: Adjusts the playback settings for better 3D visual quality.
• Blank HDMI 2 (Yes/No) – Allows you to force HDMI 2 OUT to output a blank 2D
screen when HDMI 1 OUT outputs 3D video. During 3D movie playback, when
HDMI 1 is connected to a 3D display and HDMI 2 is connected to a non-3D
receiver which is in turn connected to the same 3D display, you may encounter an
issue where there is no audio coming from the receiver. Setting this option to "Yes"
can resolve this issue.
• 2D->3D Depth – Adjusts the 3D depth perception when performing 2D-to-3D
conversion (also called “simulated 3D”). The default value is 8.
GOLDMUND EIDOS REFERENCE BLUE – Blu-Ray Player - 21

SETTINGS (Ctd.)
• 3D TV Size – Allows you to enter the diagonal screen size of the 3D HDTV. This
option applies to 3D mode only. Use the number buttons on the remote to enter the
actual diagonal size of the TV screen, and then press the ENTER button to
confirm. The default value is 46 inches.
5. TV Aspect Ratio: Sets the aspect ratio of the player’s output image.
• 16:9 Wide – Choose when the display is widescreen 16:9. 16:9 material will be
displayed in its native aspect ratio, and 4:3 materials will be stretched horizontally.
• 16:9 Wide/Auto – Choose when the display is widescreen 16:9. 16:9 material will
be displayed in its native aspect ratio, and 4:3 materials will be displayed with black
borders on both sides in order to maintain the original 4:3 aspect ratio.
NOTE
DO NOT select Multi-system if your TV does
not support both NTSC and PAL systems.
The TV display may become a black screen
when you insert a disc encoded in a different
system than your TV supports. Should this
happen, you can press the OPEN button to
eject the disc tray, and then use the Setup
Menu to correct the TV System setting.
6. TV System: Allows you to choose the output video system or broadcast standard
(PAL/NTSC) to match the type of TV.
• NTSC (default) – When playing NTSC-encoded discs, no system conversion is
performed.
PAL-encoded content is converted to NTSC output. Blu-ray Discs encoded at a
24Hz frame rate are converted to a 60Hz frame rate if neither 1080p24 Output nor
Source Direct output resolution is enabled.
• PAL – When playing PAL-encoded discs, no system conversion is performed.
NTSC encoded content is converted to PAL output. Blu-ray Discs encoded with a
24Hz frame rate are converted to a 50Hz frame rate if neither 1080p24 Output nor
Source Direct output resolution is enabled.
GOLDMUND EIDOS REFERENCE BLUE – Blu-Ray Player - 22
8
SETTINGS (Ctd.)
• Multi-system – No system conversion is performed. The output video system is
the same as that encoded on the disc. Blu-ray Discs encoded with a 24Hz frame
rate are converted to a 60Hz frame rate if neither the 1080p24 Output nor Source
Direct output resolution is enabled. Requires a TV that supports both NTSC and
PAL systems.
7. Output Resolution: Allows you to choose the output resolution that best matches
your television’s native resolution.
8. 1080p24 Output: Allows you to set the 1080p 24Hz output options. This option
only applies to the HDMI output at 1080p resolution. Many Blu-ray Discs of theatrical
movies are encoded using 24Hz frame rate, the same number of frames per second
as the original theatrical film. If the TV properly supports 1080p 24Hz, smoother
motion can be achieved by enabling 1080p24 Output for these discs.
• Auto (default) – Video encoded at a 24Hz frame rate will be output as 1080p
24Hz if the TV informs the player that it can support the 1080p24 signal.
• On – Video encoded at a 24Hz frame rate will be output as 1080p 24Hz without
regard to whether the TV can support the 1080p24 signal or not. This is useful if
the TV can actually support 1080p24 but does not properly state its capability.
Please note that if the TV cannot support 1080p24, selecting this option will result

• Off – Video encoded at a 24Hz frame rate will be converted to 60Hz (NTSC) or
50Hz (PAL).

SETTINGS (Ctd.)
9. DVD 24p Conversion: Allows you to enable 24Hz frame rate conversion for DVD.
This option is only available when 1080p24 Output is enabled (set to Auto or On).
Many DVDs that originate from theatrical movies are encoded with a technique
called “3:2 telecine” in order to convert the 24 frames per second film to 60Hz video
signal. The player can convert the 60Hz video signal back to 24 frames per second
film and output as 1080P/24Hz. Smoother motion may be achieved by enabling this
option, if both the TV and the DVD disc meet the conversion conditions.
The available options are:
• On – Converts DVD to 24Hz frame rate when possible. Remember that motion
errors may be observed if the DVD is not suitable for such conversion.
• Off (default) – Does not convert DVD to 24Hz frame rate.
10. HDMI Options: Configures video options that apply only to the HDMI output.
This item contains a sub-menu with multiple configuration options.
11. Display Options: Configures the options for displaying on-screen information.
• Subtitle Shift – Sets the display position for subtitles.
When the Subtitle Shift is set at 0 (default), subtitles are displayed at the original
position as specified on the disc. When it is set at a value between 1 and 5,
subtitles are shifted up.
When it is set at a value between -1 and -5, subtitles are shifted down.
This feature is helpful for customers using a 2.35:1 “Constant Image Height” video
projection system.
Subtitles can be shifted to the active video area so they do not get cut off. You can
also press and hold the SUBTITLE button for 3 seconds to activate this selection.

• OSD Position – Allows you to set the display position for the on-screen display
(OSD). When the OSD Position is set to 0, the OSD is shown at the top and bottom
of the video screen. When it is set at a value between 1 and 5, the OSD is shifted
towards the centre of the video screen.
Similar to the subtitle shift setting above, the OSD Position feature is helpful for
customers using a 2.35:1 “Constant Image Height” video projection system.
• OSD Mode – Allows you to select how long the on-screen display (OSD)
information, such as playback operation icons (PAUSE, STOP, SKIP, etc.), stays
on the TV screen.
• Normal – OSD information stays on the TV screen until the user cancels it.
• Minimal – OSD information stays on the TV screen for a few seconds and
then disappears. The front panel display still maintains the selected display
information.
• Remaining – OSD information stays on the TV screen until the user cancels
it. By default, displays remaining time instead of elapsed time.
• Angle Mark (On/Off) – Turns on/off the display of the angle icon when a DVD or
Blu-ray
Disc with multiple angles is played. Keeping the angle mark off avoids distraction
from normal movie watching.
• Screen Saver – Allows you to turn on/off the screen saver function. The screen
saver is designed to minimize burn-in concerns for plasma and CRT display
devices.
• On (recommended) – After about 3 minutes of inactivity, the player will show
an animated logo moving on a black background. This allows most areas of the
screen time to rest and gives all areas an equal opportunity to refresh.
• Off The screen saver will not be activated. Only use this option if your TV
does not have any burn-in issues.

SETTINGS (Ctd.)
• Energy Saver – Video output will be turned off after 3 minutes of inactivity.
Many projectors and LCD TVs will go into a standby or sleep mode and turn off
their projection lamp or LCD backlight lamp, thus saving energy and prolonging
the lamp life. When you press any button on the remote control or the player’s
front panel, the screen saver will be canceled and video output will be restored.
If your TV is already in standby or sleep mode, you may need to wake up the
TV by pressing a button on its remote or control panel.
Audio Format Setup
The Audio Format Setup section of the Setup Menu allows you to configure
preferences for audio output formats.
1. Secondary Audio: Allows you to set the Secondary Audio Program mixing option.
Some Blu-ray Discs contain a secondary audio and video program, such as a
director’s commentary. Some Blu-ray Discs have a sound effect when you make
menu choices. This Setup Menu item allows you to decide whether to mix the
Secondary Audio Program and menu sounds into the primary audio.
• On – The Secondary Audio Program and menu sounds are mixed into the
primary audio.
Usually this will cause the primary audio volume to be slightly reduced.
• Off – The Secondary Audio Program and menu sounds are not mixed into the
primary audio and you cannot hear the secondary audio or menu sounds. This
setting preserves the highest possible audio quality for the primary audio.
2. HDMI Audio: Allows you to select the digital audio output format from the HDMI
port. The options are:
Auto (default) – The player checks with the device connecting to the HDMI output to
automatically determine which audio format to use.

NOTE
If you use HDMI to connect audio to an HDMI
A/V receiver or audio processor, it is important
that you choose 720p or higher HDMI output
resolution when playing high resolution audio
content (DVD-Audio, SACD, Dolby TrueHD and
DTS-HD Master Audio). According to the HDMI
specification, the bandwidth available for audio is
proportional to the total bandwidth used by video.
At 480p/576p resolution, the HDMI specification
can only support 2 channels of audio with high
sample rate (up to 192kHz), or 8 channels of
audio with standard sample rate (up to 48kHz). If
you play high resolution audio content at the
480p/576p resolution, you may get reduced
audio resolution, incomplete audio channels, or
even no audio/video output at all.
Choosing a higher output resolution such as
720p or above allows enough bandwidth for all
high sample rate audio channels.
NOTE
Due to copyright restrictions and bandwidth
limitations, SACD audio cannot be sent through
the coaxial/optical audio output, and the high
resolution audio on DVD-Audio and Blu-ray discs
will be sent out at reduced resolution.
SETTINGS (Ctd.)
• LPCM – Digital audio output via HDMI will be in the multi-channel Linear PCM
format. When this option is selected, compressed audio bit streams will be
decoded by the player. This setting is recommended when connecting the HDMI
output directly to a TV or to a receiver without compatible audio decoding
capabilities.
• Bitstream – Digital audio output via HDMI will be in bitstream format. This option
is recommended when connecting the HDMI output to an A/V receiver or processor
that supports compatible audio decoding, such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD
Master Audio.
• Off – No digital audio output via HDMI.
3. Coaxial/Optical Output: Allows you to set the audio format and the upper sample
rate limit for coaxial/optical (S/PDIF) digital outputs. The upper sample rate limit is
used to decide whether the player will down-sample audio (the player does not upsample audio to higher sample rates).
• 48k LPCM – Forces down-mixed 2-channel, linear PCM (LPCM) digital audio
format, and sets the maximum sample rate to 48kHz. This is supported by most
receivers/amplifiers.
• 96k LPCM – Forces down-mixed 2-channel, linear PCM (LPCM) digital audio
format and sets the maximum sample rate to 96kHz. It can result in better audio
quality but ensure the receiver/amplifier can support it.
• 192k LPCM – Forces down-mixed 2-channel, linear PCM (LPCM) digital audio
format and sets the maximum sample rate to 192kHz. It can result in better audio
quality but ensure the receiver/amplifier can support it.
• Bitstream – Passes audio as compressed bitstream format to the
receiver/amplifier. Choose this setting if your receiver/amplifier is capable of
decoding Dolby Digital and/or DTS.

4. SACD Output: Allows you to select HDMI the audio output format for SACD
playback.
NOTE
Due to the hardware limitation, DSD output
is only available from the HDMI 2 OUT port.
To listen to SACD using the HDMI 1 OUT
port, please set SACD Output to PCM.
• PCM – SACD data is converted into multi-channel, high-resolution PCM data.
The converted PCM data is then output through HDMI or the internal DAC (Digital
to Analog Converter) for the analog audio output ports. If you use a receiver that
supports HDMI v1.1 to listen to SACD, please select this option. You may also
want to select this option if you prefer the sound quality of the DSD-to-PCM
conversion.
• DSD – SACD Direct Stream Digital (DSD) data is output over HDMI without any
conversion.
For the analog audio outputs, DSD data is converted into an analog signal directly
by the internal DAC. If you use a receiver that supports HDMI v1.2a with DSD over
HDMI, or you prefer the sound quality of straight DSD to analog, please select this
option.
5. HDCD Decoding: Allows you to set the audio decoding option for HDCD (High
Definition Compatible Digital) discs.
• On – HDCD is decoded by the player. You can enjoy expanded dynamic range
and improved audio resolution.
• Off – HDCD is treated as regular CD. This is useful when the player is connected
to an HDCD capable A/V receiver via a digital audio output link (Coaxial, Optical, or
HDMI) so the A/V receiver can perform HDCD decoding.
WARNING
If your receiver is capable of HDCD decoding, it is recommended that you set the
HDCD Decoding setting to Off on the Eidos Reference Blue in order to avoid
decoding HDCD twice. This will prevent the occasional pop or crackle sounds that
occur when HDCD is decoded twice.
