Tips
• To improve FM broadcast reception, adjust the

• To improve AM broadcast reception, adjust the
antenna (for CMT-EP505) or reorient the main unit
itself (for CMT-EP404).
• You can change the display into the clock display
(for five seconds) by pressing DISPLAY.
Radio Data System (RDS) is a broadcasting
service that allows radio stations to send
additional information along with the regular
program signal. This tuner offers convenient
RDS features like station name display and
location of stations by program type. RDS is
available only on FM stations.*
Note
RDS may not work properly if the station you are
tuned in is not transmitting the RDS signal properly
or if the signal strength 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, “RDS” appears in the display.
To check the RDS information
Each time you press DISPLAY, the display
changes as follows:
Frequency t RDS name* t RDS TEXT*
t RDS type* t Clock display (for five

Additional information
On operation
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 system is not disconnected from the AC power
source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall
outlet, even if the system itself has been turned off.
• Unplug the system from the wall outlet (mains) if it
is not to be used for an extended period of time. To
disconnect the cord (mains lead), pull it out by the
plug. Never pull the cord itself.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the
component, unplug the stereo system and have the
component checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
• The AC power cord must be changed only at a
qualified service shop.
• The nameplate is located on the bottom exteror.
• Place the system in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat build-up the system.
• 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
– Vibrating
– 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.
If you have any questions or problems concerning
your stereo system, please consult your nearest Sony
dealer.
Notes on CDs
• Before playing, clean the CD with a cleaning cloth.
Wipe the CD from the center out.
• Do not use solvents.
• Do not expose the CD 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.
Additional Information
On placement
• 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. Should this occur, the system will not
operate properly. Remove the CD and leave the
system turned on for about an hour until the
moisture evaporates.
• When you move the system, take out any 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
Use a soft cloth slightly moistened with mild
detergent solution.
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.
On heat buildup
• Although the system heats up during operation, this
is not 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.
Break off the
cassette tab of
side A
If you later want to reuse the tape for recording, cover
the broken tab with adhesive tape.
To prevent a malfunction, do not cover the ventilation
hole.

Specifications
Before placing a cassette in the tape
deck
AUDIO POWER SPECIFICATIONS:
(CMT-EP505, U.S.A. model only)
Take up any slack in the tape. Otherwise the tape may
get entangled in the parts of the tape deck and become
damaged.
POWER OUTPUT AND TOTAL
HARMONIC DISTORTION:
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 (etc.)
frequently. The tape may get entangled in the tape
deck.
Cleaning the tape heads
Clean the tape heads after every 10 hours of use.
Make sure to clean the tape heads before you start an
important recording or after playing an old tape. Use
separately sold dry-type or wet-type cleaning cassette.
For details, refer to the instructions of the cleaning
cassette.
Demagnetizing the tape heads
Demagnetize the tape heads and the metal parts that
have contact with the tape every 20 to 30 hours of use
with a separately sold demagnetizing cassette. For
details, refer to the instructions of the demagnetizing
cassette.
