Introduction
Reality reproduced:
Super Audio CD
SACD ; reality in sound...
and vision
The future in digital sound reproduction is no longer
limited to a close approach of reality. The new audio
standard ís reality! The human ear is no longer capable
of distinguishing audible reality from digital reproduction.
At Micromega the future starts today with the SACD
Super Audio Compact Disc player. This Super Audio CD
player combines superior sound quality with the
possibility to play almost all existing audio and video
formats with one player. Your precious CD collection
will keep its value!
The SACD will not only surprise you with its
superior reproduction of almost all existing audio
formats. Connected to your TV your SACD
presents VCD and DVD video information as perfect
digital studio-quality pictures with truly 3-dimensional
digital multi-channel audio. Story sequences can be
screened from your own choice of camera angle. You
can break down language barriers with sound tracks in
as many as eight languages, plus - if available on disc - as
many as 16 subtitles. Video becomes a new experience.
And that makes the SACD an essential component
in a state of the art audio-video configuration.
The Super Audio standard is based on Direct Stream
Digital (DSD) technology. This new direct-stream digital
format comprises a 1-bit system, that has a digital
sampling frequency 64 times higher than that of
conventional audio CD. The results are spectacular: a
frequency response of over 50k Hz and a 120 dB
dynamic range over the entire audible spectrum. Mixed
with as many of the original frequencies as possible the
audio information, audible for human ears, sounds much
more natural.
All audible frequencies are after all embedded in the
frequency range as emitted by the sound source. A
better reproduction does not exist! For the first time
your ears will relive reality.
The next standard: hybrid disc
The Super Audio CD is the evolution of CD that
provides ultra-high quality sound. Additional features like
multi-channel can be offered. On the high density (HD)
Super Audio CD you may have access to separate areas,
containing two-channel stereo and multi-channel.
But that is not all! The hybrid version of the SACD disc
guarantees backward compatibility with the installed base
of CD and DVD players. The hybrid disc contains,
besides the HD layer, a standard density CD layer with
conventional two-channel stereo CD audio information.
The two layers are read from the same side of the disc.
The HD layer is read by a DVD laser. The bottom
reflective layer with conventional CD sound, is read by
the CD laser through the second, semi-transmissive HD
layer.

Super Audio CD
You will recognise Super Audio CDs by
the logo. There are three types of
Super Audio CDs: single layer, dual
layer and hybrid discs. Each type may
contain two areas of recorded information. A High
Quality Stereo area and a High Quality Multi-channel
area.
- The single layer disc may contain both information
areas.
- The dual layer disc may contain both information areas
but a double amount of information can be stored on
the disc because of the second layer.
- The hybrid disc may not only contain both information
areas but also a second, standard CD layer which makes
it playable on standard CD players.
Recorded information may vary per area. This is
indicated in the disc inlay. Areas can be selected
separately before or during playback. When playing
Super Audio CDs the player can be operated via the
keys on the player front and the remote control or via
the On Screen Display on your TV.

Audio CD (CDDA)
Video CD
Audio CDs contain music tracks only.
You will recognise CDs by their logo.
You can play them in conventional style
through a stereo system, using the keys
on the remote control and/or front panel, or via the TV
using the On Screen Display (OSD).
You will recognise Video CDs by the
logo.
Depending on the material on the disc
(a movie, video clips, a drama series,
etc.) these discs may have one or more tracks, and
tracks may have one or more indexes, as indicated on
the disc case. To make access easy and convenient, your
player lets you move between tracks, and between
indexes.
Note: Please note that the DTS audio format on the SACD
is only supported on DVD. This product does not
support the playback of DTS encoded CDs.
Digital video
DVD-Video uses state-of-the-art MPEG 2 data
compression technology to register an entire movie on a
single 5-inch disc. DVD’s variable bitrate compression,
running at up to 9.8 Mbits/second, captures even the
most complex pictures in their original quality.
The crystal-clear digital pictures have a horizontal
resolution of over 500 lines, with 720 pixels (picture
elements) to each line. This resolution is more than
double that of VHS, superior to Laser Disc, and entirely
comparable with digital masters made in recording
studios.
DVD-Video discs conform to either the PAL or NTSC
video standard. This dual-standard player can play both
types, and presents them in the best possible way on
your multistandard TV screen.
As the universal video system of the future, DVD-Video
offers optimal pictures on any TV screen.
DVD-Video
You will recognise DVD-Video discs by
the logo.
Depending on the material on the disc
(a movie, video clips, a drama series,
etc.) these discs may have one or more Titles, and each
Title may have one or more Chapters. To make access
easy and convenient, your player lets you move between
Titles, and also between Chapters.
Unpacking
First check and identify the contents of your SACDplayer package, as listed below:
- SACD-player
- Remote Control Handset with separately-packed
batteries
- IEC power cord
- Euroconnector cable (Europe only)
- Audio cable (1x)

Placement
● Place the player on a firm, flat surface.
● Keep away from domestic heating equipment and
direct sunlight.
● In a cabinet, allow about 2 inch (5 cm) of free space
all around the player for adequate ventilation.
● If the SACD-player cannot read SACDs/CDs/DVDs
correctly, use a commonly available cleaning
CD/DVD to clean the lens before taking the SACDplayer to be repaired. Other cleaning methods may
destroy the lens. Always keep the tray closed to
avoid dust on the lens.
● When replacing from a cold to a warm environment
allow the SACD player to acclimatize for at least 2
hours in order to avoid damage. Suddenly placed in
a warm environment the lens may cloud over.
Playing a SACD/CD/DVD is not possible then. Wait
until the moisture evaporates.
● The player should not be exposed to dripping or
splashing, no objects filled with liquids such as vases,
should be placed on the player.

Measure the distances in centimeters from the front
speaker plane and from the surround speaker plane to
the listening positioning plane.
Substract the surround distance from the front distance
and divide by 30. The result is the required Surround
Channel delay time in milliseconds.
If the center speaker is on the front speaker plane, no
center speaker delay is needed. You can adjust the delay
time in the “User Preference Settings”. See Personal
preference - Sound - Speaker Settings. If, however, it is
nearer to the listening position, measure the distance in
centimeters between the front and center speaker

your equipment doesn't include a digital multichannel
decoder, set the digital output to PCM. Both coaxial and
optical outputs are then switched on. See ‘Digital and
Analog output Settings for DVD/VCD’ above.
PCM output
PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) is a method of encoding
audio information in a digital format. PCM samples
analog audio information at a fixed sampling rate and
measures the amplitude (volume) of the audio signal with
a precision determined by the sampling size. Audio is
encoded on CDs in the PCM format with a sampling
frequency of 44.1 kHz and a 16-bit sampling size. A 16bit sample size can contain 65,536 possible levels of
sound volume which corresponds to a dynamic range of
96dB. A DVD can be encoded in PCM with a sampling
frequency of up to 96 kHz and a 24-bit sample size.

outputs. You can set it to either 48 kHz or 96 kHz.
Factory setting is 48 kHz.
Notes when using digital outputs:
● If you have a digital amplifier with a PCM input of 96
kHz, connected via digital output, choose this
frequency in the menu. Do not choose 96 kHz if
your amplifier has a digital PCM input of 48 kHz
since then a strong distorted sound may be
produced.
● Due to copy-protection the digital outputs may be
muted when 96 kHz is selected, while the analog
outputs will remain active. Switching the PCM
output back to 48 kHz will reactivate the digital
output.

soundtracks. No Dolby Pro Logic
decoding is done with (Super) Audio
CD discs.
Dolby Surround : Select this setting when using
equipment with a Dolby Surround Pro
Logic decoder. In this setting the 5.1
audio channels (Dolby Digital, MPEG2) are downmixed to a Dolby
Surround compatible 2-channel output.
