How to Change the Audio Settings on the Sony DVP-S9000ES CD/DVD Player


The Audio Setup menu in the Sony DVP-S9000ES CD/DVD player features many tools you can use to adjust the sound, including "Dynamic Range Control," "Downmix" and "Audio Filter." Here's how to use them.

Things You'll Need

  • Sony DVP-S9000ES CD/DVD

Select Audio Setup

  • Select "Audio Setup" in the Setup menu.

  • Change the settings in "Audio Att" (attenuation), "Audio DRC" (dynamic range control), "Audio Filter," "Downmix" and "Digital Out" as desired.

Change Audio Att

  • Select "Audio Att" from "Audio Setup." This will decrease the audio output level if the playback sound is unclear.

  • Turn off the audio attenuation by selecting "Off" in "Audio Setup."

  • Choose "On" to decrease the audio output level to get a clearer signal. Use this option when the playback sound from the built-in TV speaker is distorted.

Change Audio DRC (Dynamic Range Control)

Change Audio Filter

  • Select "Audio Filter" from "Audio Setup" to reduce noise above 22.5 kHz, 24 kHz or 48 kHz.

  • Get wide frequency range and spatial feeling by selecting "Sharp."

  • Choose "Slow" to get smooth and warm sound.

Change Downmix

  • Select "Downmix" from "Audio Setup." This switches the mixing-down techniques when you play a DVD on which rear signal features such as LS (Rear left), RS (Rear right) and S (Rear monaural) have been recorded in Dolby digital format.

  • Choose "Dolby Surround" when the player is connected to an audio component that conforms to Dolby Surround.

  • Select "Normal" when the player is connected to an audio component that does not conform to Dolby Surround (Pro Logic).

Change Digital Out

  • Select "Digital Out" from "Audio Setup." This will select output signal through the digital out optical and coaxial connectors.

  • Choose "On" to set "Dolby Digital, "DTS" and "48 kHz/96kHz PCM."

Tips & Warnings

  • Changes to these settings only affect the sound quality when you play DVDs with Audio DRC.
  • Changing the digital filter will have varying effects depending on the disk and the playback environment.
