! The acoustics of different performance en-
vironments are not the same and depend
on the extent and contour of space through
which sound waves move and on how
sounds bounce off the stage, walls, floors
and ceilings. At a live performance you
hear music in three stages: direct sound,
early reflections, and late reflections, or re-
verberations. Those factors are programed
into the SFC circuitry to recreate the acous-
tics of various performance settings.

Using the dynamic range control
The dynamic range refers to the difference be-
tween the largest and softest sounds. The dy-
namic range control compresses this
difference so that you can clearly hear sounds
even at low volume levels.
! The dynamic range control is effective only
on Dolby Digital sounds.
! When playing other than the DVD disc, you
cannot switch to Dynamic Range Control.

Setting the speaker setting
You need to make with/without (or yes/no) and
size (bass reproducing capacity) selection/ad-
justments depending on the installed speak-
ers. The size needs to be set to Large (large) if
the speaker is capable of reproducing sounds
of about 100 Hz or below. Otherwise select
Small (small).
! Low frequency range is not output if the
subwoofer is set to Off and the front and
rear speakers set to Small or Off.
! It is imperative that non-installed speakers
be set to Off.
! Set the front or rear speaker to Large if the
speaker is capable of reproducing bass
content, or if no subwoofer is installed.

Correcting the subwoofer’s phase
If trying to boost the bass output of the sub-
woofer doesn’t do much or rather makes you
feel that the bass gets more murky, this may
indicate that the subwoofer’s output and bass
content you hear over other speakers cancel
each other out. To remove this problem, try
changing the phase setting for the subwoofer.

equalizer curves separately by selecting a cen-
ter frequency, an equalizer level and a Q factor
for each band.
! A separate Custom1 curve can be created
for each source.
! A Custom2 curve can be created common
to all sources.
! The center speaker largely determines the
sound image and getting the balance right
isn’t easy. We recommend reproducing a 2-
ch. audio (a CD for example) and getting
the balance right among the speakers ex-
cept for the center, and then reproducing a
5.1-ch. audio (Dolby Digital or DTS) and ad-
justing the center speaker output to the
balance you have already got among the
other speakers.

Auto TA and EQ (auto-time
alignment and auto-equalizing)
The auto-time alignment is automatically ad-
justed for the distance between each speaker
and the listening position.
The auto-equalizer automatically measures
the car interior acoustic characteristics, and
then creates the auto-equalizer curve based
on that information.
WARNING
To prevent accidents, never carry out auto TA and
EQ while driving. When this function measures
the car interior acoustic characteristics to create
an auto-equalizer curve, a loud measurement
tone (noise) may be outputted from the speakers.
CAUTION
! Carrying out auto TA and EQ under the follow-
ing conditions may damage the speakers. Be
sure to check the conditions thoroughly be-
fore carrying out auto TA and EQ.
— When speakers are incorrectly connected.
(e.g., When a rear speaker is connected to
a subwoofer output.)
— When a speaker is connected to a power
amp delivering output higher than the
speaker’s maximum input power capabil-
ity.

! If the microphone is placed in an unsuitable
position the measurement tone may become
loud and measurement may take a long time,
resulting in a drain on battery power. Be sure
to place the microphone in the specified loca-
tion.
Before operating the auto TA and EQ
function
! Carry out auto TA and EQ in as quiet a
place as possible, with the car engine and
air conditioning switched off. Also cut
power to car phones or portable telephones
in the car, or remove them from the car be-
fore carrying out auto TA and EQ. Sounds
other than the measurement tone (sur-
rounding sounds, engine sound, tele-
phones ringing etc.) may prevent correct
measurement of the car interior acoustic
characteristics.
! Be sure to carry out auto TA and EQ using
the supplied microphone. Using another
microphone may prevent measurement, or
result in incorrect measurement of the car
interior acoustic characteristics.
! When front speaker is not connected, auto
TA and EQ cannot be carried out.
! When this unit is connected to a power
amp with input level control, auto TA and
EQ may not be possible if you lower power
amp input level. Set the power amp’s input
level to the standard position.
! When this unit is connected to a power
amp with an LPF, turn off the LPF on the
power amp before carrying out auto TA and
EQ. In addition, the cut-off frequency for
built-in LPF of an active subwoofer should
be set to the highest frequency.
! The time alignment value calculated by
auto TA and EQ may differ from the actual
distance in the following circumstances.
However, the distance has been calculated
by computer to be the optimum delay to
give accurate results for the circum-
stances, so please continue to use this
value.
— When the reflected sound within a vehi-
cle is strong and delays occur.
— When delays occur for low sounds due
to the influence of the LPF on active
subwoofers or external amps.
! Auto TA and EQ changes the audio settings
as below:
— The fader/balance settings return to the
center position. (Refer to page 77.)
— The equalizer curve switches to Flat.
(Refer to page 83.)
— It will be adjusted automatically to high
pass filter setting for front, center and
rear speaker.
! If you carry out auto TA and EQ when a pre-
vious setting of this already exists, the set-
ting will be replaced.
Carrying out auto TA and EQ
1 Stop the car in a place that is as quiet
as possible, close all doors, windows and
the sun roof, and then turn the engine off.
If the engine is left running, engine noise may
prevent correct auto TA and EQ.
2 Fix the supplied microphone in the cen-
ter of the headrest of the driver’s seat, fa-
cing forward, using the belt (sold
separately).
The auto TA and EQ may differ depending on
where you place the microphone. If desired,
place the microphone on the front passenger
seat to carry out auto TA and EQ.

Liquid crystal display (LCD) screen
! If the display is near the vent of an air con-
ditioner when it is opened, make sure that
air from the air conditioner is not blowing
on it. Heat from the heater may damage
the LCD screen, and cool air from the cool-
er may cause moisture to form inside the
display resulting in possible damage. Also,
if the display is cooled down by the cooler,
the screen may become dark, or the life
span of the small fluorescent tube used in-
side the display may be shortened.
! Small black dots or white dots (bright dots)
may appear on the LCD screen. These are
due to the characteristics of the LCD
screen and do not indicate a problem with
the display.
! At low temperatures, the LCD screen may
be dark for a while after the power is turned
on.
! The LCD screen will be difficult to see if it is
exposed to direct sunlight.
! When using a portable phone, keep the an-
tenna of the portable phone away from the
display to prevent disruption of the video by
the appearance of spots, colored stripes,
etc.
For viewing the LCD comfortably
Due to its construction, the viewing angle of
the screen size is limited. You can adjust it by
changing either screen size or picture adjust-
ment.
Changing the wide screen size
By changing the screen size from 4:3 to 16:9,
you can adjust the screen so that the screen
can fit to the video image you are playing.
For details concerning operation, refer to
Changing the wide screen mode on page 58.
Changing the picture adjustment
You can make the best adjustment to the pic-
ture display by the Brightness, Contrast,
Color, Hue, Temperature and Black Level.
You can also dim or brighten the overall pic-
ture the Dimmer.
For details concerning operation, refer to
Changing the picture adjustment on page 59.

cleaning the display, first turn the system
power off, then wipe with a soft dry cloth.
! When wiping the screen, take care not to
scratch the surface. Do not use harsh or
abrasive chemical cleaners.
Small fluorescent tube
! A small fluorescent tube is used inside the
display to illuminate the LCD screen.
— The fluorescent tube should last for ap-
proximately 10 000 hours, depending on
operating conditions. (Using the display
at low temperatures reduces the service
life of the fluorescent tube.)
— When the fluorescent tube reaches the
end of its useful life, the screen will be
dark and the image will no longer be
projected. If this happens, consult your
dealer or the nearest authorized
PIONEER Service Station.

Terms
AAC
AAC is short for Advanced Audio Coding and
refers to an audio compression technology
standard used with MPEG 2 and MPEG 4.
Aspect ratio
This is the width-to-height ratio of a TV screen.
A regular display has an aspect ratio of 4:3.
Wide screen displays have an aspect ratio of
16:9, providing a bigger picture for exceptional
presence and atmosphere.
Bit rate
This expresses data volume per second, or bps
(bits per second) units. The higher the rate,
the more information is available to reproduce
the sound. Using the same encoding method
(such as MP3), the higher the rate, the better
the sound.
Chapter
DVD titles are in turn divided into chapters
which are numbered in the same way as the
chapters of a book. With DVD video discs fea-
turing chapters, you can quickly find a desired
scene with chapter search.
DivX
DivX is a popular media technology created by
DivX, Inc. DivX media files contain highly com-
pressed video with high visual quality that
maintains a relatively small file size. DivX files
can also include advanced media features like
menus, subtitles, and alternate audio tracks.
Many DivX media files are available for down-
load online, and you can create your own
using your personal content and easy-to-use
tools from DivX.com.
DivX Certified
DivX Certified products are officially tested by
the creators of DivX and guaranteed to play all
versions of DivX video, including DivX 6.
Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital provides multi-channel audio
from up to 5.1 independent channels. This is
the same as the Dolby Digital surround sound
system used in theaters.
Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II can create five full-band-
width output channels from two-channel
sources. This new technology enables a dis-
crete 5-channel playback with 2 front chan-
nels, 1 center channel, and 2 rear channels. A
music mode is also available for 2-channel
sources in addition to the movie mode.
DTS
This stands for Digital Theater Systems. DTS is
a surround system delivering multi-channel
audio from up to 6 independent channels.
Dynamic range control
Dolby Digital has a function for compressing
the difference between the loudest and softest
sounds: Dynamic range control. This control
ensures sounds with an increased dynamic
range are heard clearly even at low volume le-
vels.
EXIF (Exchangeable image file)
A file format developed by Fuji Photo Film for
digital still cameras. Digital cameras from var-
ious manufacturers use this compressed file
format which carries date, time and thumbnail
information, as well as the picture data.
ID3 tag
This is a method of embedding track-related
information in an MP3 file. This embedded in-
formation can include the track title, the ar-
tist’s name, the album title, the music genre,
the year of production, comments and other
data. The contents can be freely edited using
software with ID3 Tag editing functions.
Although the tags are restricted as to the num-
ber of characters, the information can be
viewed when the track is played back.

ISO9660 format
This is the international standard for the for-
mat logic of CD-ROM folders and files. For the
ISO9660 format, there are regulations for the
following two levels.
Level 1:
The file name is in 8.3 format (the name con-
sists of up to 8 characters, half-byte English
capital letters and half-byte numerals and the
“_” sign, with a file-extension of three charac-
ters).
Level 2:
The file name can have up to 31 characters (in-
cluding the separation mark “.” and a file ex-
tension). Each folder contains less than 8
hierarchies.
Extended formats
Joliet:
File names can have up to 64 characters.
Romeo:
File names can have up to 128 characters.
JPEG
This stands for Joint Photographic Experts
Group, and is an international still image com-
pression standard.
Linear PCM (LPCM)/Pulse code
modulation
This stands for linear pulse code modulation,
which is the signal recording system used for
music CDs and DVDs. Generally, DVDs are re-
corded with higher sampling frequency and
bit rate than CDs. Therefore, DVDs can provide
higher sound quality.
m3u
Playlists created using the “WINAMP” soft-
ware have a playlist file extension (.m3u).
MP3
MP3 is short for MPEG Audio Layer 3. It is an
audio compression standard set by a working
group (MPEG) of the ISO (International Stan-
dards Organization). MP3 is able to compress
audio data to about 1/10th the level of a con-
ventional disc.
MPEG
This stands for Moving Pictures Experts
Group, and is an international video image
compression standard. Some DVDs feature di-
gital audio compressed and recorded using
this system.
MS ADPCM
This stands for Microsoft adaptive differential
pulse code modulation, which is the signal re-
cording system used for the multimedia soft-
ware of Microsoft Corporation.
Multi-angle
With regular TV programs, although multiple
cameras are used to simultaneously shoot
scenes, only images from one camera at a
time are transmitted to your TV. Some DVDs
feature scenes shot from multiple angles, let-
ting you choose your viewing angle as desired.
Multi-audio (Multilingual dialog)
Some DVDs feature dialog recorded in multi-
ple languages. Dialog in up to 8 languages
can be recorded on a single disc, letting you
choose as desired.
Multi-session
Multi-session is a recording method that al-
lows additional data to be recorded later.
When recording data on a CD-ROM, CD-R or
CD-RW, etc., all data from beginning to end is
treated as a single unit or session. Multi-ses-
sion is a method of recording more than 2 ses-
sions on one disc.
Multi-subtitle
Subtitles in up to 32 languages can be re-
corded on a single DVD, letting you choose as
desired.
Number of quantization bits
The number of quantization bits is one factor
in the overall sound quality; the higher the
“bit-depth”, the better the sound quality. How-
ever, increasing the bit-depth also increases
the amount of data and therefore storage
space required.

Appendix
Packet write
This is a general term for a method of writing
on CD-R, etc., at the time required for a file,
just as is done with files on floppy or hard
discs.
Parental lock
Some DVD video discs with violent or adult-or-
iented scenes feature parental lock which pre-
vents children from viewing such scenes. With
this kind of disc, if you set the unit’s parental
lock level, playback of scenes inappropriate for
children will be disabled, or these scenes will
be skipped.
Playback control (PBC)
This is a playback control signal recorded on
Video CDs (Version 2.0). Using menu displays
provided by Video CDs with PBC lets you enjoy
playback of simple interactive software and
software with search functions. You can also
enjoy viewing high- and standard-resolution
still images.
Region number
DVD players and DVD discs feature region
numbers indicating the area in which they
were purchased. Playback of a DVD is not pos-
sible unless it features the same region num-
ber as the DVD player.
Title
DVD video discs have high data capacity, en-
abling recording of multiple movies on a sin-
gle disc. If, for example, one disc contains
three separate movies, they are divided into
title 1, title 2 and title 3. This lets you enjoy the
convenience of title search and other func-
tions.
VBR
VBR is short for variable bit rate. Generally
speaking CBR (constant bit rate) is more
widely used. But by flexibly adjusting the bit
rate according to the needs of audio compres-
sion, it is possible to achieve compression-
priority sound quality.
WMA
WMA is short for Windows Media™Audio
and refers to an audio compression technol-
ogy that is developed by Microsoft
Corporation. WMA data can be encoded by
using Windows Media Player version 7 or
later.
Windows Media and the Windows logo are tra-
demarks or registered trademarks of Microsoft
Corporation in the United States and/or other
countries.

AAC AAC is short for Advanced Audio Coding and refers to an audio compression technology standard used with MPEG 2 and MPEG 4. Aspect ratio This is the width-to-height ratio of a TV screen. A regular display has an aspect ratio of 4:3. Wide screen displays have an aspect ratio of 16:9, providing a bigger picture for exceptional presence and atmosphere. Bit rate This expresses data volume per second, or bps (bits per second) units. The higher the rate, the more information is available to reproduce the sound. Using the same encoding method (such as MP3), the higher the rate, the better the sound. Chapter DVD titles are in turn divided into chapters which are numbered in the same way as the chapters of a book. With DVD video discs featuring chapters, you can quickly find a desired scene with chapter search. DivX DivX is a popular media technology created by DivX, Inc. DivX media files contain highly compressed video with high visual quality that maintains a relatively small file size. DivX files can also include advanced media features like menus, subtitles, and alternate audio tracks. Many DivX media files are available for download online, and you can create your own using your personal content and easy-to-use tools from DivX.com. DivX Certified DivX Certified products are officially tested by the creators of DivX and guaranteed to play all versions of DivX video, including DivX 6. Dolby Digital Dolby Digital provides multi-channel audio from up to 5.1 independent channels. This is

the same as the Dolby Digital surround sound system used in theaters. Dolby Pro Logic II Dolby Pro Logic II can create five full-bandwidth output channels from two-channel sources. This new technology enables a discrete 5-channel playback with 2 front channels, 1 center channel, and 2 rear channels. A music mode is also available for 2-channel sources in addition to the movie mode. DTS This stands for Digital Theater Systems. DTS is a surround system delivering multi-channel audio from up to 6 independent channels. Dynamic range control Dolby Digital has a function for compressing the difference between the loudest and softest sounds: Dynamic range control. This control ensures sounds with an increased dynamic range are heard clearly even at low volume levels. EXIF (Exchangeable image file) A file format developed by Fuji Photo Film for digital still cameras. Digital cameras from various manufacturers use this compressed file format which carries date, time and thumbnail information, as well as the picture data. ID3 tag This is a method of embedding track-related information in an MP3 file. This embedded information can include the track title, the artist’s name, the album title, the music genre, the year of production, comments and other data. The contents can be freely edited using software with ID3 Tag editing functions. Although the tags are restricted as to the number of characters, the information can be viewed when the track is played back.

ISO9660 format This is the international standard for the format logic of CD-ROM folders and files. For the ISO9660 format, there are regulations for the following two levels. Level 1: The file name is in 8.3 format (the name consists of up to 8 characters, half-byte English capital letters and half-byte numerals and the “_” sign, with a file-extension of three characters). Level 2: The file name can have up to 31 characters (including the separation mark “.” and a file extension). Each folder contains less than 8 hierarchies. Extended formats Joliet: File names can have up to 64 characters. Romeo: File names can have up to 128 characters. JPEG This stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group, and is an international still image compression standard. Linear PCM (LPCM)/Pulse code modulation This stands for linear pulse code modulation, which is the signal recording system used for music CDs and DVDs. Generally, DVDs are recorded with higher sampling frequency and bit rate than CDs. Therefore, DVDs can provide higher sound quality. m3u Playlists created using the “WINAMP” software have a playlist file extension (.m3u). MP3 MP3 is short for MPEG Audio Layer 3. It is an audio compression standard set by a working group (MPEG) of the ISO (International Standards Organization). MP3 is able to compress audio data to about 1/10th the level of a conventional disc. MPEG This stands for Moving Pictures Experts Group, and is an international video image compression standard. Some DVDs feature digital audio compressed and recorded using this system. MS ADPCM This stands for Microsoft adaptive differential pulse code modulation, which is the signal recording system used for the multimedia software of Microsoft Corporation. Multi-angle With regular TV programs, although multiple cameras are used to simultaneously shoot scenes, only images from one camera at a time are transmitted to your TV. Some DVDs feature scenes shot from multiple angles, letting you choose your viewing angle as desired. Multi-audio (Multilingual dialog) Some DVDs feature dialog recorded in multiple languages. Dialog in up to 8 languages can be recorded on a single disc, letting you choose as desired. Multi-session Multi-session is a recording method that allows additional data to be recorded later. When recording data on a CD-ROM, CD-R or CD-RW, etc., all data from beginning to end is treated as a single unit or session. Multi-session is a method of recording more than 2 sessions on one disc. Multi-subtitle Subtitles in up to 32 languages can be recorded on a single DVD, letting you choose as desired. Number of quantization bits The number of quantization bits is one factor in the overall sound quality; the higher the “bit-depth”, the better the sound quality. However, increasing the bit-depth also increases the amount of data and therefore storage space required.

Packet write This is a general term for a method of writing on CD-R, etc., at the time required for a file, just as is done with files on floppy or hard discs. Parental lock Some DVD video discs with violent or adult-oriented scenes feature parental lock which prevents children from viewing such scenes. With this kind of disc, if you set the unit’s parental lock level, playback of scenes inappropriate for children will be disabled, or these scenes will be skipped. Playback control (PBC) This is a playback control signal recorded on Video CDs (Version 2.0). Using menu displays provided by Video CDs with PBC lets you enjoy playback of simple interactive software and software with search functions. You can also enjoy viewing high- and standard-resolution still images. Region number DVD players and DVD discs feature region numbers indicating the area in which they were purchased. Playback of a DVD is not possible unless it features the same region number as the DVD player. Title DVD video discs have high data capacity, enabling recording of multiple movies on a single disc. If, for example, one disc contains three separate movies, they are divided into title 1, title 2 and title 3. This lets you enjoy the convenience of title search and other functions. VBR VBR is short for variable bit rate. Generally speaking CBR (constant bit rate) is more widely used. But by flexibly adjusting the bit rate according to the needs of audio compression, it is possible to achieve compressionpriority sound quality. WMA WMA is short for Windows Media™ Audio and refers to an audio compression technology that is developed by Microsoft Corporation. WMA data can be encoded by using Windows Media Player version 7 or later. Windows Media and the Windows logo are trademarks or registered trademarks of Microsoft Corporation in the United States and/or other countries.
