To Connect an AV amplifier
6-Channel audio connection: When the connected AV
amplifier has 6-channel audio input jacks, connect
the 6CH. OUTPUT jacks of the player to them.
¶ When an amplifier which is not compatible with 6-
channel inputs is connected, use the signals from
the MIX LINE OUTPUT jacks of the player. The
multi-channel surround audio will be down-mixed
Audio connection: Connect the MIX LINE OUTPUT
jacks of the player to the audio input jacks of the AV
amplifier using the provided audio cables.
Digital audio connection: Connect the COAXIAL
DIGITAL OUTPUT connector of the player to the
digital audio input connector of the AV amplifier.
¶ It is also possible to perform digital connection
using a commercially available optical fiber cable
and the OPTICAL DIGITAL OUTPUT jack.
Video connection: Connect the VIDEO OUTPUT jack
of the player to the video input jack of the AV ampli-
fier using the provided video cable.
S Video connection: When the connected TV has an S
Video connector, connect the S VIDEO OUTPUT

the original number of channels recorded in the DVD
AUDIO disc, regardless of the speaker setting. When the

DTS disclaimer clause
DTS Digital Surround™ is a discrete 5.1 channel digital
audio format available on CD, LD, and DVD software
which consequently cannot be decoded and played
back inside most CD, LD, or DVD players. For this
reason, when DTS-encoded software is played back
through the analog outputs of the CD, LD, or DVD
player, excessive noise will be exhibited. To avoid
possible damage to the audio system, proper
precautions should be taken by the consumer if the
analog outputs are connected directly to an
amplification system. To enjoy DTS Digital Surround™
playback, an external 5.1 channel DTS Digital
Surround™ decoder system must be connected to the
digital output (S/P DIF, AES/EBU, or TosLink) of the
CD, LD or DVD player.
This unit is equipped with DTS Digital Surround™
