RECORDING
Preparations
• Press STANDBY/ON (POWER on the remote) to
turn this unit on.
• Set the RX-E100 to the program source to be
recorded.
1 Insert an MD.
English
This unit allows you to make recordings from a wide
variety of program sources (both analog and digital).
When recording an analog source (such as an FM
broadcast or cassette) this unit converts the analog
signals to a 44.1 kHz digital signal before recording
them onto the MD.
When recording a digital source, this unit converts the
digital signals to 44.1 kHz for recording onto the MD.
However, if you are recording a 44.1 kHz source signal
(such as a CD) there is no conversion. This unit can
record 32, 44.1 and 48 kHz digital signals.

TOC writing may be impossible (or track number
marking may not perform as expected) when
recording a damaged CD or a broadcast source with
interference.
Adjusting Recording Levels
Setting the digital recording level
The digital recording level is set by default to 0 dB, the
level of the input source. Normally, it is not necessary to
adjust this level. However, because of the variance in
levels between different digital formats and sources, it is
possible to adjust the recording level of the digital
signal. The digital level can be adjusted up to +12 dB
and down to a minimum (MIN) level. Adjust DIGITAL
REC LEVEL so that the highest peak causes the 0 dB
level indicators to flicker. Do not cause the OVER
indicator to light. Once recording is stopped, the digital
recording level returns to the default level of 0 dB.
E-12
Setting the analog recording level
For best results, play the loudest passage of the source
to be recorded and watch the recording level meter in
the display. Adjust ANALOG REC LEVEL so that the
highest peak causes the 0 dB level indicators to flicker.
Do not cause the OVER indicator to light as it may
produce distortion in the audio signal.

When recording analog signals
Auto : Track numbers are written in synchronization
with the input level of the signal being recorded. During
recording, if no sound is detected for more than 1.5
seconds, the recorder interprets this to be a gap between
two tracks. When the source signal is detected again, a
track number is automatically written.
Manual : One track number is written automatically
when you start recording, but none are written during
recording. To mark a track number, press M-MARK at
the desired position while recording.
Note
When using manual marking, the marks must be set at least 4
seconds apart.
When recording digital signals
Track numbers are written in the same positions as the
original source (CD, etc.) with either automatic or manual
marking.
To add additional track numbers, set M-MARK to
MANUAL and press M-MARK at the desired position
while recording.
Notes
• When recording is paused, the portion recorded up to the
pause is counted as an individual track. When recording is
resumed, a new track number is created.
• During synchronized recording, manual track marking is
not possible.

English
This function lets you title recorded MDs and the
individual tracks. Titles may consist of uppercase and

MD SYSTEM LIMITATIONS
The recording system in your MD recorder is radically
different from those used in cassette and DAT decks and
is characterized by the limitations described below.
Note, however, that these limitations are inherent to the
MD recording system and are not a result of mechanical
trouble.
“Can’t REC!” is displayed before the maximum
recording time (60 or 74 minutes) has been
reached
Once 255 tracks have been recorded on one MD, “Can’t
REC” is displayed regardless of the total recorded time.
“TOC Full” is displayed before the maximum
number of tracks (255) have been recorded
During automatic track marking, fluctuations in
emphasis within songs may be interpreted as song
intervals, increasing the total number of tracks and
causing “TOC Full” to be displayed.
The remaining recording time does not increase
even after erasing numerous short tracks
Tracks under 12 seconds in length are not counted and
so erasing them may not lead to an increase in the
recording time.
“TOC Reading” is displayed continuously
The “TOC Reading” display lasts longer than normal
when a brand new (blank) disc is inserted.
The total recorded time and the remaining time
on the MD do not total to the maximum
recording time
• Recording is done in minimum units of 2 seconds
each, no matter how short the material.
• This unit displays the length of the largest continuous
blank area as the remaining time. Therefore, if there
are several separate blank spaces, the remaining time
will only display a time equivalent to the largest
continuous blank space.
Tracks created through editing may exhibit
sound dropout during search operations.
Track numbers are not recorded correctly
Incorrect assignment or recording of track numbers may
result when CD tracks are divided into several smaller
tracks during digital recording.
E-20
It is not possible to erase part of a track using
the A-B ERASE function
This unit organizes the audio data in sound groups and
clusters. The minimum size of these units may not
consist of less than 10 seconds of stereo sound.
Limitations when recording over an existing
track
• The correct remaining recording time may not be
displayed.
• You may find it impossible to record over a track if
that track has been recorded over several times
already. If this happens, erase the track using the
ERASE function.
• The remaining recording time may be shortened out of
proportion to the total recorded time.
• Recording over a track to eliminate noise is not
recommended since this may shorten the duration of
the track.
• You may find it impossible to label a track while
recording over another track.
The correct recorded/playing time may not be
displayed during playback of MDs recorded in
monaural.

COPY PROTECTION (SCMS)
As a digital audio component, this MD recorder
conforms with the Serial Copy Management System
(SCMS) standards. The Serial Copy Management
System restricts copies made by recording digital signals
to first-generation copies only. Therefore, an MD
recorded through a digital input cannot be used as a
source for making another digital recording.
Care of MDs
• Do not expose the MD to direct sunlight or heat
sources such as hot air ducts, nor leave it in a car
parked in direct sunlight as there can be a
considerable rise in temperature inside the car.
• Periodically remove dust and debris from the cartridge
surface by wiping it with a dry cloth.
• Because the MD itself is housed in a cartridge, you
can handle it normally without being concerned about
dirt or fingerprints. However, malfunctioning may
result if the cartridge itself is dirty or warped.
Do not open the shutter on the MD cartridge
Trying to force the shutter open will damage the shutter.
E-21
English
Can’t copy
Digital recording cannot be performed. (See “COPY
PROTECTION (SCMS)” on this page.)
TROUBLESHOOTING
If your MD recorder fails to operate normally, check the following table. It lists common operating errors and simple
measures which you can take to correct the problem. If it cannot be corrected, or the symptom is not listed, disconnect
