Cautions
• Do not let the bare speaker wires touch each other as this
could damage the amplifier and/or speakers.
• When connecting the speakers to this system, be sure to
connect the speaker wires properly. Do not mistake the
right channel for the left channel and the plus (+) terminal
for the minus (–) terminal.
• Set the SPEAKERS SELECTOR switch on the rear panel
of MX-S90 to the proper position before connections.
If you use YAMAHA Active Servo Processing Speaker
System NX-S90, set this switch to “NX-S90”.
If you use a speaker system other than NX-S90, set this
switch to “CONVENTIONAL”.
L
(Black wire with white line → plus (+) terminal,
black wire → minus (–) terminal)
Connecting the AC supply leads
These connections must be done after all other connections
have been completed.
• First, plug the AC supply lead of MX-S90 into the AC
OUTLET on the rear of CTX-S90.
• Next, plug the AC supply lead of CTX-S90 into a wall AC
outlet.
* Unplug the AC supply lead of CTX-S90 from the AC outlet
if the system is not to be used for a long period of time.
MX-S90
CTX-S90 (U.S.A. model)
AC OUTLET (SWITCHED) on the rear panel of CTX-S90
Use this to connect the AC supply lead from another
component to CTX-S90.
The power to this outlet is controlled by the POWER switch
of CTX-S90 or the provided remote control transmitter.
This outlet will supply power to the connected component
whenever CTX-S90 is turned on.
The maximum power (power consumption of component)
that can be connected to the AC OUTLET (SWITCHED) is
420 watts.
It is the best way to connect the AC supply lead of MX-S90
to this outlet. By doing so, the power of the whole system
can be turned on/off by the POWER switch of CTX-S90 or
the provided remote control transmitter.
After the connection, keep the POWER switch of MX-S90
in the ON position.

OPEN/CLOSE THE CONTROL DOOR
When it is not necessary to operate controls inside the
control door, close the door.
To open or close the door, press the right edge until it clicks.
TURNING THE POWER ON/OFF TO THIS SYSTEM
If the AC supply lead of CTX-S90 is connected to the AC
outlet, this system can be turned ON and OFF (STANDBY
mode) by pressing the POWER switch on the front panel of
CTX-S90 or on the remote control transmitter.
* If the AC supply lead of MX-S90 is not connected to the AC
OUTLET on the rear panel of CTX-S90, the POWER
switch of MX-S90 must also be pressed to turn it on
separately.
STANDBY mode
While the power is on, pressing the POWER switch (or the
POWER switch on the remote control transmitter) switches
the system to the STANDBY mode. (In this mode, the
display shows only the time.) In this mode, main voltage is
still present inside the system. If you want to switch off the
system completely, disconnect the AC power plug from the
AC outlet.

COMPACT DISC PLAYER OPERATION
Care of compact discs
Compact discs are fairly resistant to damage, however
mistracking can occur due to an accumulation of dirt on the
disc surface.
Follow the guidelines below for maximum enjoyment from
your CD collection and player.
• Do not write on either side of the disc, particularly the nonlabel side. Signals are read from the non-label side. Do
not mark this surface.
• Keep your discs away from direct sunlight, heat and
excessive moisture.
• Always hold the CDs by the edges. Fingerprints, dirt or
water on the CDs can cause noise or mistracking. If a CD
is dirty or does not play properly, clean it with a soft, dry
cloth, wiping straight out from the center, along the radius.

TUNING OPERATION
Automatic preset tuning
You can also make use of an automatic preset tuning
function. By this function, this unit performs automatic tuning
and stores stations with strong signals sequentially. Up to 40
stations are stored automatically in the same way as in the
manual preset tuning method on the previous page.

This unit performs automatic tuning and received stations are
programmed to A1, A2 ... A8 sequentially.
After the automatic preset tuning is completed
The display shows the frequencies of the first preset station
(stored to A1).
Check the contents and the number of preset stations by
following the procedure of the section “To recall a preset
station” on the previous page.
2
To recall a preset station
Simply follow the procedure of the section “To recall a preset
station” on the previous page.
Notes
• The automatic preset tuning search will be performed
through all frequencies until 40 stations are stored. If the
number of received stations is less than 40, the search will
stop after searching through all frequencies.
• With this function, only stations with sufficient signal
strength are stored automatically. If the station you want
to program is weak in signal strength, tune to it in
monaural manually and program it by following the
procedure of the section “To store stations” on the
previous page.
• You can replace a preset station by another FM or AM
(MW or LW) station manually by simply following the
procedure of the section “To store stations” on the
previous page.
Fundamental rules of internal automatic preset tuning
operation
Basically, FM stations are programmed onto area A, B and C,
and AM stations are programmed onto area D and E (MW
stations are onto D and LW stations are onto E) in that order
automatically.
* If, for example, the number of received FM stations is not
enough to fill up three areas (A, B and C), AM (MW or LW)
stations are programmed closely from the preceeding
empty areas. In such a case, AM (MW) stations are
programmed from area B or C (and LW stations are from
area C or D.)
* Moreover, one area is programmed with stations of the
same band only. If, for example, the last FM station is
programmed to B4, B5–B8 will be programmed with no
station, and AM (MW) stations are programmed from area
C.
Memory back-up
The memory back-up circuit prevents the programmed data
from being lost even if the AC supply lead is disconnected
from the AC outlet or the power is cut due to temporary
power failure. If, however, the power is cut for more than one
week, the memory may be erased. If so, it can be reprogrammed by simply following the Preset tuning steps.

Tab
Do not use C-120 tapes, tapes with internal reels or poorquality tapes, since they can cause malfunctions.
Before loading a tape into the cassette compartment,
tighten the slack tape with a pen or pencil.
Tapes have removable tabs which prevent accidental
recording or erasing from taking place. Removing the tab
on the top left protects the side facing you from erasure.
Cover the tab holes with adhesive tape to erase or record
again.
This deck is a Single Cassette Deck with Automatic
Reverse Function.
This deck features an auto tape selector. Just load the
tape, and the tape formula being used will be sensed
automatically.
This unit can play back metal tapes as well as normal or
chrome tapes, and recording can also be done on metal
tapes.
When covering erasure prevention tab holes, do not cover
the chrome and metal detection holes. Otherwise, the
deck will treat tape as normal tape.
Do not press the OPEN/CLOSE button during playback or
recording.

LINEAR COUNTER
This unit is equipped with a tape counter which is useful for
searching and locating a desired point on tape. The tape
counter is displayed by minutes and seconds, though the
displayed time is not so close to the actual elapsed time.
(It will be close to the actual elapsed time by using a tape
with the length of 60 minutes or 90 minutes.)
Pressing the RESET button on the left side of the tape
counter resets the tape counter to “0:00”.
REMAIN
EMPTY
REMAIN indicators
The remaining amount of the tape for the side now being
played back is shown by the illumination of these indicators.
According as the tape is played back, the indicators will go
out one by one.
When the tape playback nears the end of the side, the
indicator at the left end flashes rapidly. However, when using
a tape with large hubs, the tape may stop before the indicator
flashes. This is because the error between the displayed time
and the actual elapsed time becomes large when using these
tapes.
Dolby B and C Type Noise Reduction
Dolby HX PRO Dynamic Bias Servo System
With cassette tapes, the most noticeable form of noise is high
frequency hiss. To reduce this hiss noise, this unit has been
equipped with a newly developed Dolby C noise reduction
system in addition to its conventional Dolby B NR. Either type
of noise reduction may be selected with the switch provided.
Dolby B NR has a noise reduction effect of about 10 dB in
the high frequency range. The corresponding figure with
Dolby C NR is about 20 dB, but this is over the entire range
where the human ear is most sensitive to noise (2 kHz to 8
kHz). Also, Dolby C NR has the same noise reduction effect
at both high and low signal levels. In addition, Dolby C NR
improves the tape’s MOL (Maximum Output Level).
Dolby noise reduction is a 2 part process that acts both on
recording and playback; be sure that the noise reduction
button is set to the same position on record and play.
* Noise in the source material cannot be reduced with the
Dolby NR system.
This unit incorporates the Dolby HX Pro system which
automatically controls the effective bias to reduce distortion
and noise, improving high frequency response during
recording. Tapes recorded with this system retain the same
high quality even when played back on any other tape deck.

Port
Active Servo
Processing
Amplifier
Signals of low amplitude
Signals
Negative-impedance
output drive
Thus it is this problem that is resolved through the
employment of a design in which the amplifier functions to
supply the signals. If the electrical resistance of the voice coil
is reduced to zero, the movement of the speaker unit would
become linear with respect to signal voltage, and, to
accomplish this, a special negative-impedance output-drive
amplifier for subtracting output impedance of the amplifier is
used.
By employing negative-impedance drive circuits, the amplifier
is able to generate precise, low-amplitude low-frequency
waves with superior damping characteristics, and these
waves are then radiated from the cabinet opening as highamplitude signals. The system can, therefore, by employing
the negative-impedance output drive amplifier and a speaker
cabinet with the Helmholtz resonator, reproduce an extremely
wide range of frequencies with amazing sound quality and
less distortion.
The features described above are combined to be the
fundamental structure of the Active Servo Technology.
The theory of the Active Servo Technology is based upon two
major factors, the Helmholtz resonator and negativeimpedance drive. Active Servo Processing speakers
reproduce the bass frequencies through an “air woofer”,
which is a small port or opening in the speaker’s cabinet.
This opening is used instead of, and performs the functions
of, a woofer in a conventionally designed speaker system.
Thus, signals of low amplitude within the cabinet can,
according to the Helmholtz resonance theory, be output from
this opening as waves of great amplitude if the design is such
that the size of the opening and the volume of the cabinet are
in the correct proportion to satisfy a certain ratio.
In order to accomplish this, moreover, the amplitudes within
the cabinet must be both precise and of sufficient power
because these amplitudes must overcome the “load”
presented by the air that exists within the cabinet.
