When the source you record from is:

• This system’s CD player

– The MD deck performs digital recording.* 1

– Track numbers are automatically marked as on the original CD.

• Other digital components connected to the DIGITAL

OPTICAL IN jack

– The MD deck performs digital recording.*

– Track numbers are marked differently depending on the source you record.

• This system’s tuner and other analogue components connected to the ANALOG IN jacks

– The MD deck performs analogue recording.*

Recording tracks in groups

— Group Function

What is the Group Function?

The Group Function allows you to play, record and edit the tracks on an MD in groups. This is convenient for managing multiple CD albums recorded in MDLP mode onto a single MD.

The Group Function is turned on and off by pressing GROUP.

Group Function: Off

Track

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

Group Function: On

Disc

Group 1 Group 2

Track Track

1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4

Operations using the Group Function

• Playing only the tracks in the desired group

(page 18)

• Labelling a group (page 32)

• Registering recorded tracks into a new group

(page 33)

• Releasing group registrations (page 34)

Note

MDs recorded using the Group Function of this system can be used with other system that supports the Group Function. However, note that the Group

Function operations of other system may differ from the operations for this system.

How is group information recorded?

When recording using the Group Function, the group management information is automatically recorded on the MD as the disc title.

Specifically, a character string such as the following is written in the disc title recording area.

Disc title recording area

0 ; Favourites // 1 – 5 ; Rock // 6 – 9 ; Pops // ...

1 2 3

1

The disc title is “Favourites”.

2

Tracks 1 to 5 are registered in the “Rock” group.

3

Tracks 6 to 9 are registered in the “Pops” group.

Therefore, when an MD recorded using the

Group Function is loaded on a system that does not support the Group Function or on this system with the Group Function turned off, the above character string is displayed in its entirety as the disc title.

Note that if you rewrite this character string by mistake using the Name

Function, you may be unable to use the

Group Function of that MD.

*

* The GROUP indicator flashes. To use the Group

Function again, first perform the procedure for

“Releasing the registrations of all tracks on an MD” on page 35 and release the registrations of all tracks on the MD.

Notes

• The Group Function setting is stored even if you eject the MD or turn off the system.

• When the Group Function is on, tracks which are not registered to a group are not displayed and cannot be played.

• You cannot change the group order.

• If you load a disc with group management information written in other than the proper format, the GROUP indicator flashes. In this case you cannot use the Group Function.

What is the Radio Data

System?

Radio Data System (RDS)* is a broadcasting service that allows radio stations to send additional information along with the regular program signal.

Note

RDS may not work properly if the station you tuned in is not transmitting the RDS signal properly or if the signal is weak.

* Not all FM stations provide RDS service, nor do they provide the same types of services. If you are not familiar with the RDS system, check with your local radio stations for details on RDS services in your area.

Receiving RDS broadcasts

Simply select a station from the FM band.

When you tune in a station that provides RDS services, the station name appears in the display.

To check the RDS information

Each time you press DISPLAY on the remote, the display changes cyclically as follows:

Station name* t Frequency t Clock t

BASS t TREBLE

* If the RDS broadcast is not properly received, the station name may not appear.

Additional Information

Precautions

On operating voltage

Before operating the system, check that the operating voltage of your system is identical with the voltage of your local power supply.

On safety

• The unit is not disconnected from the AC power source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall outlet, even if the unit itself has been turned off.

• Unplug the system from the mains if it is not to be used for an extended period of time.

To disconnect the mains lead, pull it out by the plug. Never pull the mains lead itself.

• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the system, unplug the system and have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it any further.

• AC power cord (mains lead) must be changed only at the qualified service shop.

• When you connect the mains lead to the mains, even if the power is off, the system begins charging for remote and timer functions. Therefore the surface of this unit become warm, this is normal.

• To prevent fire, do not Cover the ventilation of the apparatus with news papers, table-cloths, curtains, etc. And don’t place lighted candles on the apparatus.

On placement

• Do not place the system in an inclined position.

• Do not place the system in locations where it is;

— Extremely hot or cold

— Dusty or dirty

— Very humid

— Subject to vibrations

— Subject to direct sunlight.

• Use caution when placing the unit or speakers on surfaces that have been specially treated (with wax, oil, polish, etc.) as staining or discoloration of the surface may result.

On heat buildup

• Although the system heats up during operation, this is not a malfunction.

• Place the system in a location with adequate ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the system.

If you continuously use this system at a large volume, the cabinet temperature of the top, side and bottom rises considerably. To avoid burning yourself, do not touch the cabinet.

To prevent a malfunction, do not cover the ventilation hole for the cooling fan.

On operation

• If the system is brought directly from a cold to a warm location, or is placed in a very damp room, moisture may condense on the lens inside the CD player or the MD deck. Should this occur, the system will not operate properly. Remove the CD or

MD and leave the system turned on for about an hour until the moisture evaporates.

• When you move the system, take out any discs.

If you have any questions or problems concerning your system, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.

On the speaker system

This speaker system is not magnetically shielded and the picture on TV sets may become magnetically distorted. In such a case, turn off the power of the TV set once, and after 15 to 30 minutes turn it on again.

If there seems to be no improvement,

locate the speaker system further away from the TV set.

Also, be sure not to place objects in which magnets are attached or used near the speaker system, such as audio racks, TV stands, and toys. These may cause magnetic distortion to the picture due to their interaction with the system.

Notes on MDs

• Do not open the shutter to expose the MD. Close the shutter immediately if the shutter opens.

• Affix the label supplied with the disc only to the specified label indentation. Do not affix the label around the shutter or in other locations. Note that the shape of the indentation depends on the disc.

Label position

Shutter

• Wipe the disc cartridge with a dry cloth to remove dirt.

• 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.

• With the following kinds of CDs, you may experience a reading failure or noise when recorded on an MD:

— CDs with adhesive labels attached to them

— Irregularly shaped CDs (for example, heart- or star- shaped)

— CDs with printed text concentrated on one side only

— Old CDs

— Scratched CDs

— Dirty CDs

— Warped CDs

• If the following occurs during CD playback or recording, a reading error may occur or noise may be produced in the recorded results:

— The CD tray or other part of the system is bumped.

— The system is placed on an uneven or soft surface.

— The system is located near a speaker, door, or other source of vibration.

• If the above reading errors occur, an extra soundless track may be created. You can erase these extra tracks using Erase Function (see “Erasing recordings” on page 35).

Notes on CDs

• Before playing a CD, clean the CD surface with a cleaning cloth. Wipe the CD from the centre out.

• Do not play a CD with tape, stickers, or adhesives on any of its surfaces as this may damage the system.

• Do not use solvents.

• Do not expose the CDs to direct sunlight or heat sources.

• Discs with non-standard shapes (e.g., heart, square, star) cannot be played on this system. Attempting to do so may damage the system. Do not use such discs.

Note on CD-R/CD-RW playback

Discs recorded on CD-R/CD-RW drives may not be played back because of scratches, dirt, recording condition or the drive’s characteristics. Besides, the discs, which are not yet finalized at the end of recording, cannot be played back.

Cleaning the cabinet

Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with a soft cloth slightly moistened with mild detergent solution. Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or solvent such as thinner, benzene or alcohol.

Before placing a cassette in the tape deck

Take up any slack in the tape. Otherwise, the tape may get entangled in the parts of the tape deck and become damaged.

When using a tape longer than

90 minutes

The tape is very elastic. Do not change the tape operations such as play, stop, and fast-winding frequently. The tape may get entangled in the tape deck.

To save a tape permanently

To prevent a tape from being accidentally recorded over, break off the cassette tab from side A or B as illustrated.

Break off the cassette tab

If you later want to reuse the tape for recording, cover the broken tab with adhesive tape.

Cleaning the tape heads

Clean the tape heads after every 10 hours of use.

Be sure to clean the tape heads before you start an important recording or after playing an old tape.

Use a separately sold dry-type or wet-type cleaning cassette. For details, refer to the instructions of the cleaning cassette.

Demagnetising the tape heads

Demagnetise the tape heads and the metal parts that have contact with the tape after every 20 to 30 hours of use with a separately sold demagnetising cassette.

For details, refer to the instructions of the demagnetising cassette.

System limitations of MDs

The recording system in your MD deck has the limitations described below.

Note, however, that these limitations are due to the inherent nature of the MD recording system itself, not to mechanical causes.

“Disc Full!” appears before the MD has reached the maximum recording time

When 255 tracks have been recorded on the MD,

“Disc Full!” appears regardless of the total recorded time. More than 255 tracks cannot be recorded on the

MD. To continue recording, erase unnecessary tracks or use another recordable MD.

“Disc Full!” appears before the maximum number of tracks (255) is reached

Fluctuations in emphasis within tracks are sometimes interpreted as track intervals, increasing the track count and causing “Disc Full!” to appear.

“Group Full!” appears in the display

• When the Group Function is on, “Group Full!” may be displayed if editing is performed. This means there are insufficient characters for group management. Delete any unnecessary disc titles, group titles or other characters.

• Even when the Group Function is off, the group management information is updated automatically when Move, Divide and other editing operations are performed, so “Group Full!” may be displayed.

The remaining recording time does not increase even after erasing numerous short tracks

Tracks shorter than 12 seconds* are not counted, so erasing them may not increase the recording time.

* During Stereo recording:

In Monaural or LP2 Stereo mode: about 24 seconds

In LP4 Stereo mode: about 48 seconds

Some tracks cannot be combined with others

Track combination may become impossible when repeated editing has been done to the track(s).

The total recorded time and the remaining time on the MD do not add up to the maximum recording time

Recording is done in minimum units of 2 seconds* each, no matter how short the material. The recorded contents may be shorter than the maximum recording capacity. Disc space may also be reduced by scratches.

* During Stereo recording:

In Monaural or LP2 Stereo mode: about 4 seconds

In LP4 Stereo mode: about 8 seconds

The sound may drop-out while searching the edited tracks

Tracks created through editing may exhibit sound dropout during searching because high-speed playback requires time to search for the position on the disc when the tracks are not in order.

Track numbers cannot be marked

When “L-SYNC” (page 27) lights up in the display window during analogue recording, the track numbers may not be marked at the beginning of the track:

• if you repeatedly record the same track on the same disc using 1-track repeat, etc.

• if you record tracks on different discs but which have the same track number in succession.

• if the input signal is below a certain fixed level for less than 2 seconds between tracks.

• if the input signal is below a certain fixed level for more than 2 seconds in the middle of the track.

• if you record a track that is 4 seconds or less*.

* During Stereo, Monaural or LP2 Stereo recording mode (In LP4 Stereo recording mode: 8 seconds or less).

Extra tracks are created

When there is a long silence between CD tracks, an extra track may be created.

Guide to the Serial Copy

Management System

Digital audio components, such as CDs, MDs, and

DATs let you copy music easily with high quality by processing music as a digital signal.

To protect the copyrighted music programmes, this system uses the Serial Copy Management System that allows you to make only a single copy of a digitally recorded source through digital-to-digital connections.

You can make only a first generation copy

*

through a digital-to-digital connection.

For example:

1 You can make a copy of a commercially available digital sound programme (for example, a CD or MD), but you cannot make a second copy from the first-generation copy.

2 You can make a copy of a digital signal from a digitally recorded analogue sound programme

(for example, an analogue record or a music cassette tape) or from a digital satellite broadcast programme, but you cannot make a second copy.

* A first-generation copy means a digital recording of a digital signal made on digital audio equipment.

For example, if you record from this system’s CD player to the MD deck, you make a first-generation copy.
