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
DVD+VCR's DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT 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 amplifi-
er. 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
Sampling Freq. (Frequency)
If your receiver or amplifier is NOT capable of han-
dling 96 kHz signals, select 48 kHz. When this choice
is made, this unit automatically converts any 96 kHz
signals to 48 kHz so your system can decode them.
If your receiver or amplifier is capable of handling 96
kHz signals, select 96 kHz. When this choice is
made, this unit passes each type of signal through
without any further processing.
Check the documentation for your amplifier to verify
DRC (Dynamic Range Control)
With the DVD format, you can hear a program's
soundtrack in the most accurate and realistic presen-
tation 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). This allows
you to listen to a movie at a lower volume without los-
ing clarity of sound. Set DRC to [ON] for this effect.
