About
3D surround:
SRS is a breakthrough technology that creates 3-dimensional
sound by processing sound signals based on the human auditory
system. It produces real depth and localization of the sound
image which cannot be accomplished by ordinary stereo. SRS
only requires two speakers.

BASIC INFORMATION ON MINIDISCS
H Note about making digital copies
H Differences from tape recordings
MiniDiscs are designed so that further copies cannot be made
from digitally recorded MiniDisc tracks. This is a specification of
the SCMS (Serial Copy Management System).
You cannot record music on the back side of a MiniDisc.
MiniDiscs cannot be inserted when they are turned over.
(Page 18)
H About track numbers
You don’t need to search for the starting point at which to
record.
When you make a recording on a MiniDisc, track numbers are
created automatically.
The unit automatically finds the point at which recording can start.
Recording will start from that point.
When recording from CDs inserted in this unit or making
a digital recording from an external unit (CD or MD)
New track numbers will be created automatically according to the
original tracks (Synchro mark function).
You can check the total or remaining recordable time
(possible recording) before recording.
I When you record from a CD to a MiniDisc, the track numbers
recorded on the MiniDisc may not match the track numbers on
the CD.
This lets you plan a recording session so that the last song will
not come to an abrupt end before it has finished. (Page 30)
First track
The date and time of a recording are automatically
saved with the recording.
Track A
If you have set the date and time, they will be automatically
recorded when a recording is made. (Page 25)

When recording from this unit's radio
One continuous recording is regarded as a single track.
The TOC (Table of Contents) is information on track numbers
and recording areas to allow the unit to recognize musical
selections or sounds.
The entire MD is controlled depending on this TOC, which
enables the unit to find the beginning of a track quickly or to
automatically record in a vacant area.

First track
(Track A)
When recording from external analog equipment
If there is 1.5 seconds or more of silence, the blank space is
assumed to be the space between tracks, and a new track
number is created automatically (Auto mark function).
Area for TOC (recording track
numbers, track names, etc.)
I If the signal to be recorded contains some noise, the track
numbers may not be properly created.
Area for recording
the sound
I You can also record musical selections as a single track
without using the Auto mark function.
When you start recording or editing, “TOC” will appear in the
display window.
This indicates that information in the TOC is now being changed
according to recording or editing being performed. (The changed
TOC is not yet recorded on the MiniDisc at this time.)
About 1.5

Silence
The TOC is recorded when
• you stop recording.
• you switch to another input source.
• you eject the MiniDisc.
• you turn the power off.

Note:
Do NOT unplug the power cord while the TOC is being recorded
(“TOC” is flashing) Also, donot subject the unit any shocks or
sharp jolts. Otherwise, the TOC will not be correctly recorded,
and consequently proper playback may not be possible.
I When an external unit, such as a DAT, is connected and a recording
is made, the Auto mark function will work properly.

When a recording is made in the monaural long-play mode,

that were originally recorded in monaural, or for recording

A track can be divided into two tracks. If two selections were
recorded as a single track because there was not enough silent
space between the tracks, you can use the DIVIDE function to
separate the selections.
This feature is also convenient for identifying specific points with
one selection so that you can locate those points easily whenever
you like.
(Page 33)
D
Two adjacent tracks (for example, the third and fourth tracks) can
be combined.
If there is a prolonged silence in the middle of a selection that is
recorded, a single piece of music may be recorded as two tracks.
If this happens, these two tracks can be combined into a single
track.

WHAT IS A MINIDISC?
The disc is stored in a cartridge. You can handle it easily without
worrying about dust, fingerprints, etc.
However, dust entering the opening of the cartridge, dirt on the
cartridge, etc. may cause malfunctions. Please note the following.
Disc
Shutter
Cartridge
H Handling MiniDiscs
Do not touch the disc directly!
Do not open the shutter or touch the disc directly.
If the shutter is opened forcibly, it may break.
Where not to store discs:
Do not store discs in places with high temperatures or humidity.
Specifically, do not leave discs in places exposed to direct
sunlight or in cars with doors and windows closed.
Do not leave discs in places where sand can get into the cartridge
easily (e.g., a beach).
Regular cleaning:
If the surface of the cartridge becomes dusty or dirty, clean it with
a soft, dry cloth.
H To prevent recorded discs from being
erased accidentally
(accidental erasure prevention)
Slide the accidental erasure prevention tab, located on the side
of the disc, in the direction indicated by the arrow.
I The disc will then be protected against accidental erasure.
I To add a recording to such a disc, slide the accidental erasure
prevention tab back to its original position.
Tab
H What is a MiniDisc?
I A MiniDisc is a 2-1/2" (64-mm) diameter disc which is stored
in a cartridge. MiniDiscs are easy to handle, compared with
compact discs, because they are protected against dust and
scratches.
I Recording and playback use a digital system with a sound
quality that is similar to that with compact discs.
MiniDiscs cannot twist or stretch like tapes. The quality of
sound will not deteriorate. MiniDiscs are extremely durable.
I Never disassemble a MiniDisc.
H Adaptive TRansform Acoustic Coding
[ATRAC]
ATRAC (Adaptive TRansform Acoustic Coding) is a new technology that is designed to eliminate the information in sounds which
you can not hear and to compress the remaining sound data so
that the recording uses about 1/5 of the original sound information.
Sound data is analyzed and filtered to take advantage of psycho
acoustic masking. The acoustic quality of the sound is not
impaired.
52
38-58
52
98.6.23, 10:34 AM
(Continued)
H Types of discs
There are two types of MiniDiscs: playback-only and recordable
type.
Label
I Playback-only MiniDisc:
This type of MiniDisc is used for commercially available prerecorded music. This is the same kind of optical disc as a CD.
Playback is performed using an optical pickup. (Recording
and editing are not possible.)
A shutter is used on only one side (back).
Label
I Recordable MiniDisc:
This is a “blank disc” which recording can be performed. A
magneto optical disc is used.
Recordings are made using a laser and a magnet. Repeated
recording is possible.
Shutters will be used on both sides.
H High-speed access
Disc
A unique feature of the MiniDisc is the ability to locate the
beginning of a desired track at high speed.
This is because the track number and track name data are stored
in a TOC (Table of Contents).
H Shock-Resistant Memory
TOC
Sound data
During playback, approximately 10 seconds of information is
stored in the semiconductor memory. Therefore, even when the
pickup cannot read information for a second or two because of
external shock, the sound continues without interruption because the information stored in memory is output.
MINIDISC SYSTEM LIMITATIONS
Even if the maximum recording time of a MiniDisc is not
reached, “DISC FULL” or “TOC FULL” may be displayed.
When the number of tracks used reaches the limit, regardless of the remainder being
recording time, further recording will be impossible. (Maximum number of tracks: 255)
Even if the number of tracks and the recording time have
reached the limit, “DISC FULL” may be displayed.
When emphasis information (equalizer treatment in the treble section) in a track
switches on/off many times, each change is assumed to be the beginning of a new
track, which will quickly use up all available track numbers, making further recording
impossible, regardless of the remaining time, recording time or the number of tracks
on the original.
Even if several short tracks are erased, the remaining
recording time may not show an increase.
When the remaining recording time of a disc is displayed, short tracks less than 12
seconds long may not be included in the total.
Two tracks may not be combined in editing.
For MiniDiscs which repeated recording and editing operations were performed, the
COMBINE function may not work.
The total of the recorded time and time remaining on a disc
may not add up to the maximum possible recording time.
A cluster (about 2 seconds) is normally the minimum unit of recording. So, even if a
track is less than 2 seconds long, it will use about 2 seconds of space on the disc.
Therefore, the time actually available for recording may be less than the remaining time
displayed.
If there are scratches on a disc, those sections will be automatically avoided (no
recording will be placed in those sections). Therefore, recording time will be
reduced.

H Moisture condensation
H If a power failure occurs during
recording
In the following cases, condensation may form inside the unit.
I Shortly after turning on a heater.
I When the unit is placed in a room where there is excessive steam or
moisture.
I When the unit is moved from a cool place to a warm place.
If the AC power plug is disconnected from the AC outlet or a
power failure occurs during recording (before the TOC information has been recorded on the disc), the audio portion being
recorded at that time will be erased.
When a recording is being added to a MiniDisc which already has
a recording on it, if the TOC is not updated before the power
failure, the added recording will be erased.
When the unit has condensation inside, the disc signals cannot
be read, and the product may not function properly.
I If this happens, remove the disc. The condensation should evaporate
in approximately 1 hour. The unit will then function properly.
