audio delay When a disc has been incorrectly authored, the audio can be out of sync from
the video. Audio Delay allows you to compensate for this by inserting a delay
that repositions the audio in relation to the video and brings them into sync.
The delay is adjustable in 10ms steps and operates within a range of +/- 200 ms
digital output The digital outputs can be conﬁgured in any of three ways, based on how you
plan to use the player:
• off — for example, if you plan to use only the stereo analog outputs, and
not send a digital signal along to a separate processor.
• raw — which passes along the native signal of whatever disc is playing,
whether that is PCM, Dolby Digital, DTS, or anything else. This setting
assumes that your external processor can handle anything you might send
• PCM stereo — if the soundtrack you are playing contains multichannel
information, it will be “downmixed” to a two-channel PCM signal that
would be compatible with stereo playback, or further processing with
Dolby Pro Logic II or DTS Neo:6 (as examples).
volume setup The volume setup menu allows you to set up several volume-related parameters
to suit your needs. If you elect not to use the variable volume capability, these
settings will not be available.
• max volume — The maximum volume screen allows you to establish a
maximum volume setting for your system. This scale runs from 0 to 100,
with 100 indicating that you do not want any artiﬁcial limit placed on
the maximum gain your surround processor can provide. This setting is
interactive. You can set the value to something less than 100, and then
adjust the volume to see whether it is appropriate.
• startup volume — Here you may select the level you prefer after the
units wakes out of standby. This can be conﬁgured two different ways:
last volume is the last level selected before the unit was powered down.
Furthermore, the status of the mute will be remembered. The speciﬁc
setting allows you to select a favorite level with the mute on or off.
• mute setup — Gives you three different types of muting function.
• Classic muting literally mutes the output when you engage the mute
button; no sound will be heard.
• Speciﬁc muting allows you to select a speciﬁc volume setting that you
want used when you engage
mute, regardless of what setting you might
have been using the moment before.
• Dampening works as most mute buttons work, attenuating the current
volume by the amount you specify.
