Connecting Up





Connecting analog audio cables

Be sure to fully insert each plug for the best
connection. The plugs and jacks are color-
coded to make connection easier.

Connecting optical cables

Optical interconnects only
plug in one way, so make
sure the plug is correctly
lined up with the jack
before inserting. When
inserting the plug, the
protective shutter will open and you should
hear it click into position when fully in-
serted. Be careful that you do not force the
plug, because this could result in damage to
the protective shutter, the cable, or the unit

Connecting coaxial cables

Use an interconnect with a
pin-type (also called RCA or
phono) plug on each end to
connect up digital coaxial-
type jacks. Make sure that the plug is
pushed fully home.

Home theater audio connections

This player outputs multi-channel audio in
both analog and digital form. Check the
manual for your amplifier/receiver to see
what equipment it is compatible with
(especially which digital formats—Dolby
Digital, DTS, etc.—it can decode).

Connecting i.LINK cables

4-pin, S400 i.LINK connectors for connec-
tions to i.LINK-equipped receivers and other

Each i.LINK connector acts simultaneously
as both input and output. (page



If you listen to multichannel DVD-Audio through
one of the digital outputs, it will be downmixed to
stereo. Also, high sampling rate DVD-Audio
(192kHz or 176.4kHz) will be downsampled to
96kHz, 88.2kHz, 48kHz or 44.1kHz, depending
on the disc (see page 38). Multi channel and high
sampling rate DVD-Audio is only available through
the analog outputs and i.LINK outputs.

All DVD-Audio and all Super Audio CD audio is
output only through the analog outputs and
i.LINK outputs (see pages 39, 55).


Before making or changing any rear panel connec-
tions, make sure that all components are switched
off and unplugged from the wall outlet.
