    Thank you for choosing theHarman Kardon DMC 1000

    The DMC 1000 merges a high-end DVD player,including upscaling to 1080p with an HDMIoutput, with a media server capable of storing

    up to 60,000 songs on its 250Gb hard drive.Simultaneous playback of different tracks is pos-sible in up to four zones, or you may link any orall of the zones to each other.

    Thanks to GracenoteMusicID,* all contentrecorded from a CD to the DMC 1000s harddrive is identified by album name, artist andgenre, with additional information to show thetitle of each track. Even better, for most popularalbums, the DMC 1000 will display the coverart when connected to the Internet. The contentis automatically organized by the identificationfields and by the cover, and you may select it andprogram playlists to suit any mood or occasion.

    The graphical presentation of system content isavailable in both high-definition and standard-definition outputs, for crisp, easy-to-read displayson any video screen.

    To enable you to get the maximum quality fromDVDs, the DVD is equipped with the latest indesign techniques, including advanced 10-bitvideo digital-to-analog converters (DAC) andVideo (composite), S-Video and RGB video (RGBvia SCART) outputs, to ensure that you get all thequality inherent in todays DVD medium.For optimum playback of NTSC and PAL DVDwith compatible high-definition display devices,DVD is equipped with progressive componentvideo outputs.

    When used with an HDMI-compatible audio/video receiver and video display, the programquality is preserved.By passing an uncompressed signal, degrada-tion is virtually nonexistent. And the single-cableconnection eliminates the problem of wiremanagement.

    If you have not yet upgraded to an HDMI videodisplay, you may still enjoy pristine picture qual-ity with the DMC 1000s precision video DACs,which output a Y/Pr/Pb progressive-scan com-ponent signal and composite and S-video. Thus,

    no matter what type of video display used, youwill see images that are the closest thing to theoriginal film or performance this side of your localtheater.

    When playing audio CDs, the playback quality isstate-of-the-art, matching that of the finest play-ers available.

    In addition to DVD and CD playback, the DMC1000 offers audio and still-image playback fromboth solid-state media cards and USB drives. Youcan even record analog sources such as your oldtapes, cassettes and even vinyl records (with anoptional, external phono preamp) to store virtu-

    ally any audio content for instant playback. Andthe DMC 1000 allows content to be transferredfrom the hard drive to the memory cards or a USBdrive, or even a recordable CD. This flexibility lets

    you take your music with you in a wide range ofportable players, or in your car.

    Additional features of the DMC 1000 includeiPod audio playback through Harman Kardonsoptional The Bridge accessory, with charging and

    navigation available to any zone in your system.System control options include the units backlitremote, optional external IR sensor/receivers.

    Since they share some of the characteristics andtechnology of CD players, many of the terms andoperational concepts used in a DVD player aresimilar to what you may be familiar with from CD

    players and changers, or older video disc formatssuch as Laser Disc. However, if this is your firstDVD product, some of the terms used to describethe features of a DVD player may be unfamiliar.The following explanations should solve some ofthe mysteries of DVD, and help you to enjoy allthe power and flexibility of the DVD format andthe DVD.

    With the arrival of DVD, disc data capacity hasincreased dramatically. On a DVD Video discmost of this capacity is taken up by MPEG 2video and the multichannel movie soundtrackin Dolby Digital and/or DTS. This information iscompressed.

    Aspect Ratio:This is a description of the widthof a video image in relation to its height.A conventional video screen is four units wide forevery three units of height, thats why the ratiois called 4:3. Newer wide aspect ratio videodisplays are 16 units wide for every nine units ofheight, making them more like the screen in amovie theater. The program material on a DVDmay be recorded in either format and, in addition,you may configure the DVD to play back in eitherformat, depending on the features recorded ona disc.

    Media Library:The Media Library refers to

    the content stored on the DMC 1000s internalhard-disc drive. It contains all of the
