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 and
Common Operations” on pages 10 – 12.
• The following marks are used in this manual:
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.
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
• 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.
Precautions
If anything goes wrong, unplug the AC power cord and
consult your dealer.
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.

How the EON function actually works:
Alarm function
CASE 1
If an ALARM (Emergency) signal is received from a
station while listening to the radio, the unit automatically
switches to the station broadcasting the ALARM signal,
except when you are listening to non-RDS stations (all
AM – MW/LW and some FM stations).
If there is no station broadcasting the program you
have selected
The unit continues tuning in the current station.
«
When a station starts broadcasting the program you
have selected, the unit automatically switches to the
station. 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.
Test function
The TEST signal is used for testing the ALARM signal.
Therefore, it makes the unit work in the same way as the
ALARM signal does.
If a TEST signal is received from a station while
listening to the radio, the unit automatically switches to
the station broadcasting the TEST signal, except when
you are listening to non-RDS stations (all AM – MW/
LW and some FM stations).
CASE 2
If there is a station broadcasting the program you
have selected
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
If the FM station you are listening to is broadcasting
the program you have selected
The unit continues to receive the station but the
indicator of received PTY code starts flashing.
«
When the program is over, the indicator of received
PTY code stops flashing and remains lit, but the EON
function still remains activated.
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 (“NOT FOUND” appears this time), and the
indication of the EON data type flashing on the display
disappears.

Before You Start Recording
• Recording is only possible on MD deck B.
• 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 43).
• 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 mode effect 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.
You can do this because there is a mark recorded at the
beginning 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.”
• When recording from the CD player or MD deck
A built in this unit, a track mark is recorded
automatically at the beginning of each 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. (If you try to do,
“DISC PROTECTED” appears in the main display.)
To do re-recording or editing, return the tab to the closed
position.
• When recording an analog or digital source using
Standard Recording (see page 31) or AUX
Recording (see page 31) and when recording an
analog source using Long Recording (see page 37),
no track mark is recorded on the MD. This means
that, when playing this MD, the MD deck B 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 no sound comes in for about 3 seconds or
more while recording, the MD deck B will consider it
as a blank separating 2 tracks and consequently put a
track mark.
To put a track mark manually while recording,
press SET at the place where you want to put a track
mark.
• To add a track mark after recording is over, you
can use the DIVIDE function (see page 40).
Recording/Editing

If “PLAY BACK” appears in the main display when

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 trays, 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 deck. MD deck 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 deck 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 minute 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.

SCMS (Serial Copy Management System)
MD deck 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 MD 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 reverse.
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.
