The CDP-D12 is a compact-size CD player with a variety of playback functions that are useful for audiovisual presentations or sound effects in theaters, etc.

The features of the CDP-D12 are as follows:

Auto Pause and Auto Cue functions

The Auto Pause function pauses playback after each track, while the Auto Cue function locates the point where the audio content begins and pauses at that point.

Compact design

The CDP-D12 has a height of 1U, allowing it to be mounted in a standard EIA 19-inch rack.

RELAY IN/OUT connectors

Sequential playback is possible over multiple CDP-

D12 units linked by the RELAY IN/OUT connectors.

Flexible output interfaces

Two types of analog audio connectors (balanced XLRtype connectors and unbalanced phono connectors) are provided, as well as coaxial and optical digital outputs.

Various remote control configurations

Remote control functions are provided via RS-232C, parallel, and CTRL-S connectors. The supplied remote control unit can be used as both a wired remote and wireless IR remote.

CD-R/RW

The CDP-D12 can play CD-R and CD-RW discs, as well as commercially sold CDs.

Variable-speed playback

The ability to vary the playback speed within a range of ±12.5% in 0.5% intervals makes it easy to adjust the playing time.

Mark & Locate function

Through simple operations, any point on the CD can be marked and then located.

Precautions

Notes on use

• The CDP-D12 must be used within a temperature range of 0°C to 40°C (32°F to 104°F).

• Installing the CDP-D12 in a hot place or in a place exposed to direct sunlight may cause it to malfunction or the color finish to fade. Do not place the CDP-D12 near a heat source such as lighting equipment or a power amplifier.

• After using the CDP-D12 in a place that is moist, dusty place, or exposed to activated gas, clean the surface and the connectors as soon as possible. If you do not, or if the CDP-D12 is kept in such a place, the service life of the player may be shortened.

• Clean the surface and the connectors of the CDP-D12 with a dry, soft cloth. Never use thinner, benzene, alcohol or any other chemicals, since these may mar the finish.

Installation

Do not place the CDP-D12 in the following places:

• On an unstable place or uneven surface

• On a carpet or mattress

• Humid or poorly ventilated places

• Dusty places

• Under direct sunlight or where the temperature is high

• Where the temperature is very low

• Near a tuner, TV set, or video deck

(When using the CDP-D12 with the above equipment, the close proximity of the CDP-D12 may cause noise or distortion in audio or visual signals, especially in the case of equipment that use an interior antenna. In this case, it is recommended that an outdoor antenna be used instead.)

On condensation in the player

If the player is brought directly from a cold place to a warm location, or is placed in a very damp room, moisture may condense inside the player.

Moisture may condense inside the player when the temperature suddenly rises, such as when a heater is turned on. In this event, the player may not operate properly, and damage may even occur to the CD or player mechanism. If there is condensation, remove the

CD and leave the player turned on for about an hour until the moisture evaporates. If the player does not operate normally even after a few hours, consult Sony service personnel.

On cleaning

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

On carrying the player

Always remove the CD before transporting the player.

After inserting the CD

A beep or mechanical noise may be heard. This is caused by the automatic adjustment of the servomechanism inside the player. A noise may also be heard if the inserted CD is warped, due to an automatic adjustment function.

Note on adjusting the volume

Compact discs contain less noise than normal records.

If you adjust the volume as you listen to the sound between tracks, as you might do with normal records, an unexpectedly high volume may be output, damaging the speakers. Be sure to turn down the volume before the start of playback.

Precautions

Handling CDs

Handling

• When holding the CD, do not touch the recorded side

(the side without the label).

• Do not attach any paper or seals onto the CD.

• If the CD is extremely dirty, wipe it with a soft cloth lightly moistened with water, and then finish with a dry cloth.

• Do not use solvents such as benzene, record cleaner, or anti-static spray intended for vinyl LPs.

Notes on CD-R/CD-RW playback

Discs recorded on a CD-R/CD-RW drive may not play back due to scratches, dirt, recording conditions, or properties of the drive. In addition, discs for which the recording process was not finalized cannot be played back.

• The CDP-D12 can play round CDs only. Playing irregularly shaped CDs such as star-shaped or heartshaped CDs may damage the player.

• Do not use CDs on which labels or stickers have been attached, for example by second-hand CD or CD rental shops.

Preservation

• Do not leave CDs in a place subject to high temperature or high humidity, especially places exposed to direct sunlight.

• Store CDs in their case. CDs that are piled or stacked without cases may become deformed.

Cleaning

• Fingerprints or dust will affect the quality of the sound. Keep CDs clean.

• When cleaning a CD, wipe it with a soft cloth from the center outward.

Fader Play

Fader Play is available only when the CDP-D12 is connected to a mixer equipped with a remote fader function in which the –

position (lowest position) is

OFF and all other positions are ON.

If you connect the mixer’s fader to the CDP-D12’s

PARALLEL connector terminal to which the Fader

PLAY function is assigned, the fader can be used to control player operations. When the fader is lowered to

, the player cues to and pauses at the beginning of the next track. When the fader is changed to another position, the player starts playing the track.

To do 1 Track Repeat Play

Because of the design of the CDP-D12, if you cue to the next track during 1 Track Repeat Play, the player will play the next track repeatedly. To do repeat play of only one track using Fader Play, make a program containing that track only (see “Programming the tracks” on page 28) and select Repeat All Play (see

“Playing Tracks Repeatedly” on page 25) on the player.

Connecting the RELAY IN/OUT connectors

When you connect multiple CDP-D12s through the

RELAY IN/OUT connectors, control signals are sent through the connectors to cause the players to play in sequence.

Connect the RELAY OUT connector of the first player to the RELAY IN connector of the second player using an optional stereo mini plug cable (RK-G136, etc.). Do the same with succeeding players. If you connect all the players in the loop, continuous repeat playback is possible.

1st player

2nd player

Last player

To mixer

Notes

• To do Relay Play properly, two lines of control signals are required. Be sure to use stereo-type mini plug cables for the connections. Using the monaural mini plug cables may result in operation failure.

• Relay Play may not be carried out properly if the cables with resistor are used for connection.

Relay Play

When multiple CDP-D12s are connected as shown above, when playback on the first player ends, control signals are output through the RELAY OUT connector to the RELAY IN connector on the second player and playback on the second player starts to automatically.

If the second player is connected a third player via the

RELAY IN/OUT connectors, playback on the third player will start when playback on the second player ends, and so on.

Notes

• If one of the players is set to Repeat All Play, Repeat

1 Play, or Repeat A-B Play, no control signals are output from that player and Relay Play ends at that point.

• All of the following conditions must be met on the second and succeeding players in order to perform

Relay Play.

— CDs which can be played are inserted in the players.

— Players are stopped.

— Players are not in menu operation.

• If the point is marked while a minus time indication appears at the beginning of the track

• If the point marked by a menu operation is located within the last few seconds of the track

The discrepancy is due to the mechanical limits of the player and does not reflect a problem in the actual operation. It is, however, recommended that you do not mark a point at such a location.

Marking the point (Mark)

While the player is playing, press the AMS control (or the MARK button on the remote).

The playback point at the time the AMS control (or the

MARK button) is pressed is entered as the locate point.

Adjusting the marked point

(Rehearsal)

The position of the marked point can be adjusted while listening to the playback.

1

While the player is stopped, press the MENU/

EXIT button, rotate the AMS control until

“Rehearsal” appears in the display, and then press the control.

After a few seconds, “Rehearsal Start” appears and a few seconds of the track up to the marked point begins to play back repeatedly.

To mark a point by a menu operation

You can enter the track number and time data to mark a point.

1

Press the MENU/EXIT button, rotate the AMS control until “Direct MARK” appears in the display, and then press the control.

2

Rotate the AMS control to select the track number, and then press the control.

3

Rotate the AMS control to select the minute of the point, and then press the control.

4

Rotate the AMS control to select the second of the point, and then press the control.

5

Press the MENU/EXIT button to complete the setting.

Marked point

2

Rotate the AMS control to move the marked point.

The time indication of the moved point and “Pos ok?” alternates in the display.

The point can be moved up to 8 seconds in the forward or reverse direction in 5-frame intervals (5 frames = approximately 0.0667 seconds).

Amount of shift

3

After adjusting the point, press the AMS control.

“Rehearsal Complete” appears in the display for a few seconds.

30

4

Press the MENU/EXIT button to complete the setting.

Notes

• If no point is marked, “Rehearsal” does not appear in the display in the step 1 of the procedure above.

• If you press the MENU/EXIT button without moving the marked point, “Not Changed” appears in the display.

• The point can be moved within the boundaries of one track; it cannot be moved to the other track.

Cueing to the marked point

(Locate)

Press the LOCATE button.

The player cues to the marked point and pauses.

Notes

• When the marked point is located, the player may pause at a point several frames after the marked point due to the recording condition of the disc. If the time of the marked point is near the change-over to the next second, the time of the located point may differ by one second with the time of the marked point.

• If during Program Play you press the LOCATE button, but the track containing the marked point is not included in the program, “XX t Not PRG” appears in the display. (“XX” indicates a track number.)

31

Locating the Beginning of a Track (Auto Pause/

Auto Cue)

Two functions are provided for locating the beginning of the track. When Auto Pause is selected, the player pauses at the beginning of the next track after playback of each track. When Auto Cue is selected, the player pauses at the beginning of the next track after skipping the portion with no sound, allowing immediate playback of the sound content.

Numeric buttons

Pausing after playback of each track (Auto Pause)

The player pauses automatically at the beginning of the next track. This function is convenient for recording a single track or several tracks that are not sequential.

Press the A•CUE button (or A.CUE A.PAUSE button on the remote) repeatedly until “AUTO PAUSE” appears in the display.

To resume normal play

Press the A•CUE button (or A.CUE A.PAUSE button on the remote) repeatedly until “AUTO:OFF” appears in the display.

When using numeric buttons to select the track

Since the player locates and pauses at the point where sound begins in the selected track, it is not necessary to do step 3 below.

3

Press the AMS control or the HX button (or the

H button on the remote).

“AUTO CUE” appears in the display and the player locates and pauses at the point at which the sound begins in the selected track.

4

Press the HX button (or the H button on the remote).

Sound playback starts immediately.

To resume normal play

Press the A•CUE button (or A.CUE A.PAUSE button on the remote) repeatedly until “AUTO:OFF” appears in the display.

Changing the Playback Speed (Vari Speed Play)

The playing time can be adjusted by varying the playback speed within a range of ±12.5%. When the playback speed is set lower than 0%, the pitch falls; when it is set higher than 0%, the pitch rises. The selected speed is memorized even after Vari Speed

Play is turned off. When you select Vari Speed Play again, the player begins playing in the selected speed.
