Question

How do I connect my DVD Player to my home stereo, using a red/white (L+R) audio connection?

Answer

  1. Connect (1) the Audio Outputs (L/R: red and white socket) on the DVD Player to (2) the Audio Inputs (L/R: red and white socket) on the home stereo or Home Theatre System.

    Note that the ends of the cable are colour-coded. Insert the red end to the red socket on the devices; and white end to the white socket on the devices. 

  2. On the home stereo, select the corresponding input source (for example, “DVD player” or “AUX” or “AUDIO”).

Tip:
If your stereo has inputs for digital audio, using the digital audio output, instead of red/white audio output from the DVD player is recommended.

Digital audio connection will allow you to take advantage of different sound technologies such as:

  • Dolby Digital (AC-3)
  • PCM audio (including PCM from CDs)
  • DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
  • MLP audio (from DVD-Audio discs).
