H General
H Condensation
I Do not use oil, solvents, gasoline, paint thinner or insecticides on
the unit.
I Do not expose the unit to moisture, to temperatures higher than
140°F (60°C) or to extreme low temperatures.
I Keep the unit away from direct sunlight, strong magnetic fields,
excessive dust, humidity and electronic/electrical equipment (home
computers, facsimiles, etc.) which generates electrical noise.
I Hold the AC power plug by the head when removing it from the AC
outlet, since pulling the cord can damage internal wires.
I Use the unit on a firm, level surface free from vibration.
I If the unit does not work properly while in use, press the POWER
button to turn the power off, then disconnect the AC power cord from
the AC outlet. Plug the AC power cord back in, and then press the
POWER button to turn the power on.
I If an electrical storm is taking place near you, it is suggested that
you disconnect the AC power cord from the AC outlet for safety.
I Before moving the unit, be sure to remove all CDs and MDs from the
unit. Then, turn the power off and unplug the AC power cord.
If you move the unit with CDs or MDs left in it, they may jam inside
the unit, leading to damage.
Sudden temperature changes and storage or operation in an extremely
humid environment may cause condensation inside the cabinet.
Condensation can cause the unit to malfunction.
Follow the procedure below to eliminate condensation.
I CD and MD pickups
Leave the power on with no disc in the unit until normal playback is possible
(about 1 hour).
I Remote control
Wipe off any condensation on the transmitter LED with a soft cloth before
operating the unit.
H 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.
I Do not write on either side of the disc, particularly the non-label side.
Signals are read from the non-label side. Do not mark on this surface.
I Keep your discs away from direct sunlight, heat, and excessive moisture.
I Always hold 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.
Warning:
The voltage used must be the same as that specified on this unit. Using
this product with a higher voltage than that which is specified is

damage to the unit. This may also cause malfunctions.
I Do not place two CDs in the disc tray.
I Do not push the disc tray while it is moving.
I If the power fails while the drawer is open, wait until the power is
restored before trying to close it.
I If the disc drawer is stopped forcibly, “ERROR” will appear on the
display and the unit will not function.
If this occurs, turn the power off, and turn it on again.
I If TV or radio interference occurs during CD operation, move the
unit away from the TV or radio.
I If the main unit is subjected to a sharp jolt or it is used where
vibrations are present, sound dropouts may occur. Use the unit in
a stable environment.
If the volume is set to too high, a dropout may occur due to vibrations
from the speakers. If this happens, move the main unit away from
the speakers or turn down the volume.
I Do not use CDs with loose cellophane tape or stickers or CDs which
have glue left on the surface from tape or stickers. If such a CD is
inserted, you may not be able to remove the CD or the unit may
malfunction.

BASIC INFORMATION ON MINIDISCS
H Differences from tape recordings
H Note about making digital copies
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 37)
You don’t need to search for the starting point at which to
record.
H About track numbers
The unit automatically finds the point at which recording can start.
Recording will start from that point.
When you make a recording on a MiniDisc, track numbers are created
automatically.
You can check the total or remaining recordable time (possible
recording) before recording.
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).
This lets you plan a recording session so that the last song will not
come to an abrupt end before it has finished. (Page 17)
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.
The date and time of a recording are automatically saved with
the recording.
First track
If you have set the date and time, they will be automatically recorded
when a recording is made. (page 8)
Track A
H Information (TOC) to be recorded on an MD
First track
Track A
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.

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).
I If the signal to be recorded contains some noise, the track numbers may
not be properly created.
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.)
I You can also record musical selections as a single track without using
the Auto mark function.
About 1.5

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

Do NOT unplug the power cord while the TOC is being recorded (“TOC”

Otherwise the TOC will not be correctly recorded, and consequently
proper playback may not be possible.
Note:
I When external units such as a DSS tuner or a DAT are connected and
a recording is made, the Auto mark function will work.

recording songs that were originally recorded in monaural, or for recording

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.
H
Handling MiniDiscs
H
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.
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.

Types of discs
There are two types of MiniDiscs: playback-only and recordable type.
I Playback-only MiniDisc:
This type of MiniDisc is used for commercially available pre-recorded
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).
Where not to store discs:
I Recordable MiniDisc:
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).
This is a “blank disc” is which recording can be performed. A magneto
optical disc is used.
Recordings are made using a laser and a magnet. Repeated recording
is possible.
Regular cleaning:
If the surface of the cartridge becomes dusty or dirty, clean it with a soft,
dry cloth.
H
Label
Label
To prevent recorded discs from being
erased accidentally
(accidental erasure prevention)
Shutters will be used on both sides.
H
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.
Helpful tip when attaching labels
To attach labels on MD cartridges, be sure to observe the following:
If a label is not properly attached, the MD may jam inside the unit and it may
not be possible to remove it.
I Only attach labels in the specified location. (Do not put labels anywhere
else.)
Tab
I Do not put a label on top of another one.
I If a label is peeled off or it lifts away, replace it with a new one.
H
What is a MiniDisc?
H
Shock-Resistant Memory
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.
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.

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
not 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 15
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.
