MP3/WMA Play
CD-R MP3/WMA discs
When you record MP3 files on the CD-R, please refer to the following.
GB
• Your MP3 or WMA files should be ISO 9660 or JOLIET format.
ISO 9660 format and Joliet MP3 or WMA files are compatible with Microsoft's DOS and Windows, and with Apple's
Mac. These two formats are the most widely used.
• When naming your MP3 or WMA files do not exceed 8 characters, and place ".mp3, .wma" as the file
extension.
General name format of: Title.mp3. or Title.wma. When composing your title, make sure that you use 8 characters or
less, have no spaces in the name, and avoid the use of special characters including: (.,/,\,=,+).
• Use a decompression transfer rate of at least 128 Kbps when recording MP3 files.
Sound quality with MP3 files basically depends on the rate of compression/decompression you choose. Getting audio
CD quality sound requires an analog/digital sampling rate, that is conversion to MP3 format, of at least 128 Kbps and
up to 160 Kbps. However, choosing higher rates, like 192 Kbps or more, only rarely give better sound quality.
Conversely, files with decompression rates below 128 Kbps will not be played properly.
• Use a decompression transfer rate of at least 64Kbps when recording WMA files.
Sound quality with WMA files basically depends on the rate of compression/decompression you choose. Getting audio
CD quality sound requires an analog/digital sampling rate, that is conversion to WMA format, of at least 64Kbps and
up to 192Kbps.
Conversely, files with decompression rates below 64Kbps or over 192Kbps will not be played properly.
• Do not try recording copyright protected MP3 files.
Certain "secured" files are encrypted and code protected to prevent illegal copying. These files are of the following
types: Windows MediaTM (registered trade mark of Microsoft Inc) and SDMITM (registered trade mark of The SDMI
Foundation). You cannot copy such files.
• Important: The above recommendations cannot be taken as a guarantee that the DVD player will play MP3
recordings, or as an assurance of sound quality.
You should note that certain technologies and methods for MP3 file recording on CD-Rs prevent
optimal playback of these files on your DVD player (degraded sound quality and in some cases,
inability of the player to read the files).
• This unit can play a maximum of 500 files and 300 folders per disc.

Center Speaker
Ideally, the center speaker should be positioned at the same height as the front speakers, but it may be
placed above or below your TV set.
2
Surround Speakers
It is better to place these speakers behind your listening position, facing slightly downwards, about 24 to 35
inches (60-90 cm) above your ear.
If your listening position is too close to the rear wall, place these speakers at the left and right of the listening
position so that they face each other.
3
Front Speakers
It is better to place these speakers so that their tweeters are at your ear level, facing inwards (about 45°)
toward you.
4
Subwoofer
The position of the subwoofer is not so critical. Place it anywhere you like.
➢
Please do not set up the Subwoofer near by TV or monitor because the Subwoofer is not fully
magnetic shielded.

Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II is new form of multi-channel audio signal
decoding technique that is improved from the existing
Dolby Pro Logic.
Dolby Pro Logic II separates Dolby Sound recordings as well as
regular stereo audio (video audio, TV broadcast, external input)
into 5.1 channels (front left and right, center, and surround left
and right) so you can enjoy regular audio signals with 6
speakers.
In addition, you can set different modes depending on the
content and format of audio and more accurately adjust the
sound field.
