  2. Burn the file firmware1p84.wav to CD #1 as an AUDIO CD. Label the disc CD #1 DSP Software Update 1.84 .

NOTE: Check the coaxial digital audio output settings of your DVD player before beginning. Turn off any 3D, normalization, spatialization, and compression features that the DVD player may have. Ensure that "bitstream" is selected in the menu setting for the digital audio output format.

  1. Access the rear of the compatible DVD player and connect the audio patch cable to the DVD player’s coaxial digital audio output connector. If the player only has an optical digital audio output, a optical to coaxial converter must be used.
  2. Connect the other end of the audio patch cable to the Data IN jack (RCA-type jack with a white center) of the PS1 power stand.

Step 4: Update the Firmware

NOTE: The upgrade procedure must be done in the following order with the DSP firmware update followed by the preset upgrade. The PS1 power stand may not accept the preset upgrade if the DSP firmware upgrade was not performed successfully first.

  2. Insert the CD #1 DSP Software Update 1.84 disc into the DVD player. Press the STOP button twice.
