Introduction
We would like to thank you for purchasing one of our JVC products.
Before operating this unit, read this manual carefully and thoroughly to
obtain the best possible performance from your unit, and retain this manual
for future reference.
About This Manual
Power sources
This manual is organized as follows:
• When unplugging from the wall outlet, always pull the
plug, not the AC power cord.
• The manual mainly explains operations using the buttons
and controls on the unit. You can also use the buttons on
the remote control if they have the same or similar
names (or marks) as those on the unit.
If operation using the remote control is different from
that using the unit, it is then explained.
• Basic and common information that is the same for
many functions is grouped in one place, and is not
repeated in each procedure. For instance, we do not
repeat the information about turning on/off the unit,
setting the volume, changing the sound effects, and
others, which are explained in the section “Basic
Settings” and “Common Operations” on pages 10, 11,
and 12.
• The following marks are used in this manual:
DO NOT handle the AC power cord with wet
hands.
Moisture condensation
Moisture may condense on the lens inside the unit in the
following cases:
• After starting heating in the room
• In a damp room
• If the unit is brought directly from a cold to a warm
place
Should this occur, the unit may malfunction. In this case,
leave the unit turned on for a few hours until the moisture
evaporates, unplug the AC power cord, and then plug it in
again.
Others
Gives you warnings and cautions to prevent
from a damage or risk of fire/electric
shock.
Also gives you information which is not
good for obtaining the best possible
performance from the unit.
• Should any metallic object or liquid fall into the unit,
unplug the unit and consult your dealer before operating
any further.
• If you are not going to operate the unit for an extended
period of time, unplug the AC power cord from the wall
outlet.
Gives you information and hints you had
better know.
DO NOT disassemble the unit since there are
no user serviceable parts inside.
If anything goes wrong, unplug the AC power cord and
consult your dealer.
Precautions
Installation
• Install in a place which is level, dry and neither too hot
nor too cold — between 5˚C (41˚F) and 35˚C (95˚F).
• Install the unit in a location with adequate ventilation to
prevent internal heat built-up in the unit.
• Leave sufficient distance between the unit and the TV.
• Keep the speakers away from the TV to avoid
interference with TV.
DO NOT install the unit in a location near heat
sources, or in a place subject to direct sunlight,
excessive dust or vibration.

RDS allows FM stations to send an additional signal along
with their regular program signals. For example, the
stations send their station names, as well as information

How the EON function actually works:
More about the EON function
• EON data sent from some stations may not be compatible with
this unit.
• While listening to a program tuned in by the EON function, the
station does not change even if another network station starts
broadcasting a program of the same EON data.
• While listening to a program tuned in by the EON function, you
can only use the EON and DISPLAY buttons as the tuner
operation buttons.
• If the stations alternate intermittently between the station tuned
by the EON function and the currently tuned station
(“WAITING” flashes in the main display), press EON to cancel
the EON function.
If you do not press the button, the currently tuned station is
received finally, and the indication of the EON data type
flashing on the display disappears.

lights on the display window), you cannot erase a preset station.

The unit tunes in the program. The indicator of received
PTY code starts flashing.
«
When the program is over, “EON END” appears in the
main display, and the unit goes back to the previously
tuned station, but the EON function still remains
activated.
CASE 3

Recording onto an MD
Things to Know Before You Start Recording
• It may be unlawful to record or play back copyrighted material without the consent of the
copyright owner.
• When you record onto partially recorded MD, its contents are not erased or overwritten. The recording starts from
the point following the last recorded track of the MD.
If you want to record on such an MD from the beginning, you have to erase its contents first (see “ALL ERASE
Function” on page 37).
• The recording level is automatically set correctly, so it is not affected by the VOLUME control. Thus, during
recording you can adjust the sound you are actually listening to without affecting the recording level.
• While recording, you can hear sound modes and/or the active bass extension effect through the speakers or
headphones. However, the sound is recorded without these effects (see page 12).
To avoid erasing important recordings
About the track marks
When playing an MD, you can move among the tracks
using MULTI JOG or 4 / ¢ of the MD control, or
even select directly a track using the remote control.
You can do this because there is a mark recorded at the
front of each track enabling you to locate the track. This
mark is called a “track mark” and the portion between
two adjacent track marks is called a “track.”
Recordable MDs have an erasure prevention tab so that
important recordings are not accidentally erased. When you
finish recording or editing, slide open the erasure
prevention tab on the cartridge side surface. New recording
or editing is now no longer possible.
To do re-recording or editing, return the tab to the closed
position.
• When recording from a digital source such as the
CD player, a track mark is recorded automatically at
the beginning of each track.
• When recording from an analog source such as
FM/AM broadcasts, no track mark is recorded on
the MD. This means that, when playing this MD, the
MD recorder will regard the entire recording as one
track (track 1). You will not be able to select directly
a song or navigate through songs.
Erasure prevention tab
However, if there is a blank of 3 seconds or more, the
MD recorder will consider it as a blank separating 2
tracks and consequently put a track mark.
Recording/Editing
possible
To put a track mark manually while recording an
analog source, press SET at the place you want to put a
track mark.
To add a track mark after recording is over, you can
use the DIVIDE function (see page 33).

Maintenance
To get the best performance of the unit, keep your discs and mechanism clean.
Handling MDs
General Notes
In general, you will have the best performance by keeping
your CDs, MDs and the mechanism clean.
• Store CDs and MDs in their cases, and keep them in
cabinets or on shelves.
• Keep the CD disc compartment, and the MD loading
slot cover closed when not in use.
• Do not open the shutter.
- The shutter is locked so that it
will not open. Trying to force it
open will break the MD. If the
shutter opens accidentally, close
it again quickly without
touching the MD inside.
Handling CDs
• Do not place MDs in the following places:
- High temperature areas such as
in direct sunlight or inside a
car.
- High humidity areas, e.g. in a
bathroom.
- On a beach or sandy area.
• Remove the CD from its case by
holding it at the edge while
pressing the center hole lightly.
• Do not touch the shiny surface of
the disc, or bend the CD.
• Put the CD back in its case after
use to prevent warping.
• Be careful not to scratch the
surface of the CD when placing it
back in its case.
• Avoid exposure to direct sunlight,
temperature extremes, and
moisture.
• Clean MDs regularly.
- If dust or dirt gets on cartridge, wipe it off with a soft
dry cloth.
To clean the CD
Wipe the CD with a soft cloth in a
straight line from center to edge.
DO NOT use any solvent — such as conventional
record cleaner, spray, thinner, or benzine — to clean
the CD.

Additional Information
MD Disc Types
There are two types of MDs: Premastered (prerecorded) and Recordable (blank).
Premastered MDs
Premastered MDs, which have been recorded at music studio, can be played back like regular CDs. On an MD of this type,
data is recorded as the presence or absence of tiny pits. A laser beam focuses on the pits on the surface of the MD and
reflects the detection back to the lens in the MD recorder. The MD recorder then decodes the signals and plays them back as
music. This type of MD is called an “optical disc.”
Recordable MDs
Recordable MDs, which use magneto-optical technology, can be recorded and played back repeatedly. The laser inside the
MD recorder applies heat to the MD, demagnetizing the magnetic layer of the MD for recording and playback. This type of
MD is called an “magnetic-optical disc.”
ATRAC (Adaptive TRansform Acoustic Coding)
The MD provides 74 minutes recording and playback time, the same as an audio CD, but in a diameter of only 64 mm. This
ability to store such a large amount of data is the result of ATRAC, an audio compression technique developed for MD. This
technology cuts out faint sounds that would not be heard by the human beings. This technology, based on human sensitivity
to sounds, reduces recorded data volume up to about one-fifth of that of the original data.
UTOC (User Table Of Contents)
Found only on recordable MDs, this area contains sub-data (track number, recording data, etc.) which can be rewritten by
the user.
UTOC enables us to search tracks quickly and edit tracks on the MD.
3:12
4:15
6:05
Serial Copy Management System (SCMS)
The MD recorder integrated to this unit uses the Serial Copy Management System which allows only first-generation digital
copies to be made of premastered software (like CDs or prerecorded MDs).

Sound Skip Guard Memory
The biggest weakness of discs is their susceptibility to vibration. The “Sound Skip Guard Memory” has been developed to
cope with this weakness.
With this function, a few seconds of signals read by the optical read head from the disc are first stored in memory before
being reproduced as audio signals. Thus, even when vibration or shock interrupts signals being read, these stored signals
can continue to reproduce sounds for the few seconds. Thus, the user will enjoy uninterrupted music.
When “vibrated”....
Normally....
MD limitations
The MD records data in an original format that differs from that of conventional cassette tapes or DATs. Since there are
some limitations with this recording format, the following types of symptoms may occur. These symptoms are not
malfunctions.
Cause
Symptoms
“DISC FULL” appears, even though there is still enough
remaining time on an MD.
“DISC FULL” appears even though the number of tracks
and recording time do not reach the limit.
The JOIN function sometimes does not work.
The remaining time on the MD does not increase even
when tracks are erased.
The sound drops out during fast forward or fast rewind.
The amount of recorded time on the MD added to the
amount of remaining time is shorter than the MD’s total
possible recording time.
There is a maximum number of tracks which can be
recorded, regardless of recording time. More than 254
tracks cannot be recorded on an MD.
• Repeating erasure and recording on the same MD creates
many blank portions sparsely on the MD. When recording on such an MD, a track is recorded on these blank
portions sparsely. If a track is divided and recorded into
so many portions, “DISC FULL” appears.
• If a divided portion of less than 8 seconds is made while
a track is recorded on the MD, that track cannot be
joined to another track using the JOIN function. Furthermore, if that track is erased, the remaining time of the
MD may not increase exactly by the erased amount.
• If a track has been divided into many portions while
being recorded on the MD, sounds will drop out while
fast forwarding or reversing such an MD.
You cannot record on a blank portion of less than 2 seconds
in the MD. For this reason, the actual recording time of
discs may become shorter.
