Audio Settings

Each DVD disc has a variety of audio output options.
Set the recorder's Audio Output according to the type
of audio system you use.

Dolby Digital / DTS / MPEG

[Bitstream]: Select "Bitstream" if you connect the
recorder's DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack to an amplifier
or other equipment with a Dolby Digital, DTS or
MPEG decoder.
[PCM] (for Dolby Digital / MPEG): Select when
connected to a two-channel digital stereo amplifier.
DVDs encoded in Dolby Digital or MPEG will be
automatically downmixed to two-channel PCM
[Off] (for DTS): If you select "Off", the DTS signal is
not output through the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack.

Sampling Frequency

If your receiver or amplifier is NOT capable of
handling 96 kHz signals, select [48 kHz]. When this
choice is made, this unit will automatically convert any
96 kHz signals to 48 kHz so your system can decode
If your receiver or amplifier is capable of handling
96 kHz signals, select [96 kHz]. When this choice is
made, this unit will pass each type of signal through
without any further processing.

DRC (Dynamic Range Control)

With the DVD format, you can hear a program's
soundtrack in the most accurate and realistic
presentation possible, thanks to digital audio
technology. However, you may wish to compress the
dynamic range of the audio output (the difference
between the loudest sounds and the quietest ones).
Then, you may listen to a movie at a lower volume
without losing clarity of sound. Set DRC to [ON] for
this effect.


Set Vocal to [ON] only when a multi-channel karaoke
DVD is playing. The karaoke channels on the disc will
mix into normal stereo sound.
