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 audio.
[Off] (for DTS): If you select “Off”, the DTS signal is not output through the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack.
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 them. 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.
