On safety
Caution The use of optical instruments with this product will increase eye hazard. To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not place objects filled with liquids, such as vases, on the apparatus. Should any solid object or liquid fall into the cabinet, unplug the player and have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it any further.

On adjusting volume
Do not turn up the volume while listening to a section with very low level inputs or no audio signals. If you do, the speakers may be damaged when a peak level section is played.

About MP3 audio tracks
You can play MP3 audio tracks on CD-ROMs or CD-Rs/CD-RWs. However, the discs must be recorded according to ISO9660 level 1, level 2, or Joliet format for the player to recognize the tracks. You can also play discs recorded in Multi Session.

When audio tracks and images in music CD format or video CD format are recorded in the first session, only the first session will be played back.

When you insert a DATA CD and press H, the numbered tracks are played sequentially, from 1 through 7. Any sub-albums/tracks contained within a currently selected album take priority over the next album in the same tree. (Example: C contains D so 4 is played before 5.) When you press MENU and the list of MP3 albums appears (page 30), the albums are arranged in the following order: A t B t C t D t F t G. Albums that do not contain tracks (such as album E) do not appear in the list.

When playing a VIDEO CD, CD, or DATA CD (MP3 audio) The default setting is underlined. STEREO: The standard stereo sound 1/L: The sound of the left channel (monaural) 2/R: The sound of the right channel (monaural) When playing a Super VCD The default setting is underlined. 1:STEREO: The stereo sound of the audio track 1 1:1/L: The sound of the left channel of the audio track 1 (monaural) 1:2/R: The sound of the right channel of the audio track 1 (monaural) 2:STEREO: The stereo sound of the audio track 2 2:1/L: The sound of the left channel of the audio track 2 (monaural) 2:2/R: The sound of the right channel of the audio track 2 (monaural)

Changing the Sound
When playing a DVD recorded in multiple audio formats (PCM, Dolby Digital, or DTS), you can change the audio format. If the DVD is recorded with multilingual tracks, you can also change the language. With CDs, DATA CDs, or VIDEO CDs, you can select the sound from the right or left channel and listen to the sound of the selected channel through both the right and left speakers. For example, when playing a disc containing a song with the vocals on the right channel and the instruments on the left channel, you can hear the instruments from both speakers by selecting the left channel.

About audio signals
Audio signals recorded in a disc contain the sound elements (channels) shown below. Each channel is output from a separate speaker. Front (L) Front (R) Center Rear (L) Rear (R) Rear (Monaural): This signal can be either the Dolby Surround Sound processed signals or the Dolby Digital sound's monaural rear audio signals. LFE (Low Frequency Effect) signal

Virtual Surround Settings
When you connect a stereo TV or 2 front speakers, Virtual Surround lets you enjoy surround sound effects by using sound imaging to create virtual rear speakers from the sound of the front speakers (L: left, R: right) without using actual rear speakers. If the player is set up to output the signal from the DIGITAL OUT (COAXIAL) jack, the surround effect will only be heard when "DOLBY DIGITAL" is set to "D-PCM" (page 54).

Notes
If "DTS" is set to "OFF" in "AUDIO SETUP," the DTS track selection option will not appear on the screen even if the disc contains DTS tracks (page 54). While playing a Super VCD on which the audio track 2 is not recorded, no sound will come out when you select "2:STEREO," "2:1/L," or "2:2/R."

Notes
When the playing signal does not contain a signal for the rear speakers, the surround effects will be difficult to hear. When you select one of theVirtual Surround modes, turn off the surround setting of the connected TV or amplifier (receiver). Make sure that your listening position is between and at an equal distance from your speakers, and that the speakers are located in similar surroundings. Not all discs will respond to the "NIGHT" function in the same way.
