Introduction
Precautions
Installation
• Install in a place which is level, dry and neither too hot nor
too cold—between 5°C and 35°C.
• Install the System in a location with adequate ventilation to
prevent internal heat buildup inside the System.
DO NOT install the System in a location near
heat sources, or in a place subject to direct
sunlight, excessive dust or vibration.
• Leave sufficient distance between the System and the TV.
• Keep the speakers away from the TV to avoid interference
with TV.
Power sources
• When unplugging the System from the wall outlet, always
pull on the plug, not the AC power cord.
DO NOT handle the AC power cord with wet
hands.
• If you are not going to operate the System for an extended
period of time, unplug the AC power cord from the wall outlet.
If anything goes wrong, unplug the AC power cord and
consult your dealer.
How to Read This Manual
To make this manual as simple and easy-to-understand as
possible, we have adapted the following methods:
• Button and control operations are explained as listed in the
table below. In this manual, the operations using the remote
control is mainly explained; however, you can use the
buttons and controls on the main unit if they have the same
(or similar) name and marks.
• Some related tips and notes are explained later in the
sections “Learning More about This System” and
“Troubleshooting,” but not in the same section
explaining the operations. If you want to know more about
the functions, or if you have a doubt about the functions, go
to these sections and you will find the answers.
Indicates that you press the button
briefly.
Moisture condensation
Moisture may condense on the lenses inside the System in
the following cases:
• After starting to heat the room
• In a damp room
• If the System is brought directly from a cold to a warm
place
Should this occur, the System may malfunction. In this case,
leave the System turned on for a few hours until the moisture
evaporates, unplug the AC power cord, then plug it in again.
Indicates that you press the button
briefly and repeatedly until an option
you want is selected.
Indicates that you press one of the
buttons.
Internal heat
• A cooling fan is mounted on the rear panel to prevent heat
buildup inside the main unit (see page G-1).
2 sec.
For safety, observe the following carefully:
• Make sure there is good ventilation around
the main unit. Poor ventilation could
overheat and damage the System.
• DO NOT block the cooling fan and the
ventilation openings or holes. If they are
blocked by a newspaper or cloth, etc., the
heat may not be able to get out.
Indicates that you turn the control
toward the specified direction(s).
Others
• Should any metallic object or liquid fall into the System,
unplug the AC power cord and consult your dealer before
operating any further.
DO NOT disassemble the System since there
are no user serviceable parts inside.

• To correct a misentry during the process, press CANCEL.
You can return to the previous step.
How Daily Timer actually works
Once the Daily Timer has been set, the timer (
)
indicator and timer number indicator (1, 2, or 3) are lit on
the display. Daily Timer is activated at the same time
everyday until the timer is turned off manually (see the
next page) or another Daily Timer is activated.
When the on-time comes
The System turns on, tunes in to the selected station, or
starts playing the specified disc or the tape.
The volume level is the level when the unit was turned off
last time.
• When selecting “P – – –,” the last tuned station will be
selected for Daily Timer.
About one hour after turning on the System, the System
stops it, and turns off (stands by) automatically.
• While Daily Timer is working, the timer (
) and
timer number indicators (1, 2, or 3) flash on the display.
• The timer setting remains in memory until you change
it.
• Without canceling the Daily Timer, you can change the
source or adjust the volume after Daily Timer starts
playback.
How Recording Timer actually works
When Recording Timer has been set, Timer (
)
indicator and the REC indicator are lit on the display.
Recording Timer works only once.
When the on-time comes
The System turns on, tunes in to the specified station, and
starts recording.
The volume level is the level when the unit was turned
off last time.
When the off-time comes
The System stops recording, and turns off (stands by).
• The timer setting remains in memory until you change
it.

Additional Information
Learning More about This System
Daily Operations—Playback (see pages 8 to 12)
Listening to the Radio:
• If you store a new station into an occupied preset number,
the previously stored station in that number will be erased.
• When you unplug the AC power cord or if a power failure
occurs, the preset stations will be erased in a few days. If
this happens, preset the stations again.
Playing Back a Disc:
• When using an 8 cm disc, place it on the inner circle of the
disc tray.
• This System cannot play “packet write” discs.
• For MP3 playback...
– MP3 discs are required a longer readout time than regular
CDs. (It depends on the complexity of the group/file
configuration.)
– Some MP3 files cannot be played back and will be
skipped. This result from their recording processes and
conditions.
– When making MP3 discs, use ISO 9660 Level 1 or Level
2 for the disc format.
– This System can play back MP3 files with the extension
code <.mp3> (regardless of the letter case—upper/
lower).
– Some characters or symbols will not be shown correctly
on the display.
The maximum character number shown on the display is
32 (without the extension code) for files, and 30 for ID3
tag.
– It is recommended that you make each MP3 file at a
sampling rate of 44.1 kHz and at bit rate of 128 kbps.
– This System can recognize the total of 500 tracks and of
200 groups. Those exceeding the maximum number
cannot be recognized.
– Playback order of MP3 tracks may be different from the
one you have intended while recording. If a folder does
not include MP3 tracks, they are ignored.
When discs* are loaded on more than one tray, they are
played in sequence as follows:
Ex.: When CD 2 is selected:
CD 2 -> CD 3 -> CD 4 -> CD 5 -> CD 1
(then selects CD 2, and stops)
* When no disc is loaded on the tray, that disc number is
skipped.
You can exchange discs while playing or selecting another
disc.
Playing Back a Tape:
• It is not recommended to use the C-120 or longer tapes.
These tapes easily jams in the pinch rollers and capstans,
and may cause characteristic deterioration.

Daily Operations—Sound & Other Adjustments
(see pages 13 and 14)
Adjusting the Volume:
• Be sure to turn down the volume before connecting or
putting the headphones.
Adjusting the Sound:
• This function also affects the sound through the
headphones.
• SOUND TURBO and AHB PRO cannot be used at the
same time.
Setting the Clock:
• “0:00” will flash on the display until you set the clock.
• The clock may gain or lose 1 to 2 minutes per month. If this
happens, reset the clock.
Turning off the Power Automatically:
• Auto Standby cannot be canceled by the following
operations.
– Changing the display brightness.
– Adjusting the volume.
– Adjusting the sound.
Advanced Disc Operations (see pages 15 to 17)
Programming the Playing Order—Program Play:
• If you try to program a 33rd track, “FULL” appears on the
display.
• While programming steps...
Your entry will be ignored if you have tried to program an
item number that does not exist on the disc (for example,
selecting track 14 on a disc that only has 12 tracks).
Advanced Tape Operations (see pages 18 and 19)
Recording on a Tape:
• The recording level is automatically set correctly. Thus,
you can adjust the sound you are actually listening to
without affecting the recording level.
• There is leader tape which cannot be recorded onto at the
start and end of cassette tapes. Thus, when recording CDs
or radio broadcasts, wind the leader tape first to ensure that
the recording will be made without any music part lost.
• If you start recording with no cassette inserted, “NO
TAPE” appears on the display. If a protected tape has been
inserted, “NO REC” appears.
• When using Reverse mode for recording, start recording in
the forward (3) direction first; otherwise, recording will
stop when only one side (reverse) of the tape is recorded.
• You can also change Reverse mode setting (
and
)
after starting recording.
Synchronized Disc Recording:
• If you open the current disc tray while recording, the
recording is stopped.
• When the disc reaches to its end before the tape ends, the
unit starts playback next disc and continues recording.
UX-G5[UJ].book Page 23 Friday, June 10, 2005 1:07 PM
Timer Operations (see pages 20 and 21)
• When you unplug the AC power cord or if a power failure
occurs, the timer will be canceled. You need to set the
