between On and Off.
Dynamic Range Control (DRC)
With the DVD format, you can hear a program’s sound-
track 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.
Set Playback Control (PBC) to On or Off.
On: Video CDs with PBC are played according to the PBC.
Off: Video CDs with PBC are played the same way as Audio
You can set up the DVD/VCR Receiver so a DVD disc

If Auto Play mode is set to On, this DVD/VCR Receiver
will search a title where playback time is longest and
then play back the title automatically.

commercially available test disc that contains pluge sig-
Off: For normal use.
DNR (Digital Noise Reduction)
You can reduce ambient noise in the picture.
DNR1: Normal level
DNR2: Expanded level.
Actual picture enhancement may vary depending on the
quality of the disc.
While the DNR2 (expanded level) can provide additional
improvement in the reduction of noise in the video signal, it
may produce undesirable picture artifacts on some discs.
Should this occur, select a more appropriate DNR level (nor-
mal or off).
Depending on the disc, some picture detail may be lost by
the picture enhancement.
