Off : Select this option to turn off the Dynamic Range Compression and have the soundtrack presented exactly as it was created.

PSEUDO PAL ON/OFF

On : A NTSC DVD disc can be played back with the PAL colour system TV set, depending on the disc.

Off : A NTSC DVD disc cannot be played back with the PAL colour system TV set.

ABOUT DRC (DYNAMIC RANGE COMPRESSION)

With the DVD format you have the opportunity to hear a programs soundtrack in the most accurate and realistic presentation possible, thanks to the use of digital audio technology. However, in certain instances you may wish to slightly compress the dynamic range of the audio output (the difference between the loudest sounds and the quietest ones) so that you may listen to a movie at a lower volume without losing dialogue intelligibility.

NOTES

• The DRC function works only during playback of Dolby Digital recorded discs.

• The level of Dynamic Range Compression may differ depending on the DVD disc.

• When playing karaoke, connect appropriate audio equipment (such as an amplifier) to the DVD video player.

• The Pseudo PAL can be displayed when the SYSTEM selector on the rear panel is switched to PAL mode.

• If there are any problems during playback of a NTSC disc, select the Pseudo PAL to On mode.

• The picture can be streamed according to TV type when the Pseudo PAL is in On mode.

• The maximum allowable depth of nested directory is 50.

• Disc format is compatible with ISO9660 only.

• If you record mp3 files using the software which cannot create a FILE SYSTEM, for example Direct-CD etc., it is impossible to playback mp3 files. We therefore recommend that you use Easy-CD Creator , which creates an ISO9660 file system.

• A single session disc requires mp3 files in the first track. If there is no mp3 file in the 1st track, it cannot playback mp3 files. If you wish to playback mp3 files, format all the data in the disc or use a new one.

• If there are already data files which are not mp3 files on the CD-R disc, please, do not use that disc; use a new one instead. However, if the disc is a CD-RW disc, this does not apply.
