Listening Caution
EST. 1924
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you’ve just purchased is only the start of your musical enjoyment. Now it’s time to
consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement your equipment offers. This manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics Group want you to get the most out
of your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that lets the
sound come through loud and clear without annoying blaring or distortion—and, most importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing.
We recommend you to avoid prolonged exposure to excessive noise.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level”
adapts to higher volumes of sound. So what sounds “normal” can
actually be loud and harmful to your hearing.
Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level
BEFORE your hearing adapts.
To establish a safe level:
• Start your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and
clearly, and without distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
• Set the dial and leave it there.
Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage
or loss in the future. After all, we want you listening for a lifetime.
THE FOLLOWING APPLIES ONLY IN THE U.S.A.
CAUTION:
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC
Rules.
These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference in a residential installation. This
equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency
energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not
occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause
harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be
determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is
encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the
following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different
from that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for
help.
Any unauthorized changes or modifications to this equipment
would void the user’s authority to operate this device.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is
subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not
cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any
interference received, including interference that may cause
undesired operation.

below. Keep these operating instructions handy for future reference.
Safety
1. Power source—Connect the unit to a power source of the type
described in these instructions or as marked on the unit.
2. Polarization—The unit is equipped with a polarized power plug
where one blade is wider than the other. This safety feature
ensures that the plug fits into your household AC outlet only one
way. If the plug doesn’t fit one way, try reversing it. If the plug still
doesn’t fit, contact an electrician to replace the obsolete outlet.
Do not attempt to defeat the safety purpose of the plug.
3. Power cord protection—Route the AC power supply cord so
that it will not be walked on or pinched by items placed on or
against it. Never take hold of the plug or cord with wet hands.
Always grasp the plug body firmly when connecting and disconnecting it.
4. Overloading—When connecting the AC power supply cord, be
careful not to overload the household AC outlet, extension cord, or
outlet from any other device as this can result in fire or electric
shock.

(b) Objects or liquids have gotten into the unit; or
(c) The unit has been exposed to rain; or
(d) The unit does not operate normally or exhibits a marked change
in performance; or
(e) The unit has been dropped, or the cabinet damaged.
2. Servicing—Do not attempt to service the unit beyond that
described in these operating instructions. Refer all other servicing to
authorized servicing personnel.
3. Replacement parts—When parts need replacing ensure the servicer uses parts specified by the manufacturer or parts that have the

• The unit will not respond to commands when a specified tray is
being opened or closed or while the unit is switching CD trays.
• 3-CD changer trays cannot be opened during recording even if
recording from an external source. (This prevents noise and
vibration from lowering the quality of the recording.)
• The track number is cleared from the music calendar when the
corresponding track has finished playing.
• In this example, playback proceeds through all of the tracks on
DISC1, DISC2 and DISC3, and stops automatically after the
last track on DISC3 has finished playing. This pattern changes
depending on the first disc selected for play, as described in the
following section.
When one or more CDs are already in the trays.

Notes
• The DISC SELECTOR 1, 2, and 3 buttons do not function during program and random play modes.
• If a tray is opened and closed when it is not the current tray in

When it becomes time to play the disc in this tray, the disc
information is read, and if there is no disc, the unit will move on
to the next tray.
• The total track time does not always match total play time (time
shown in display window) exactly because the playback time
includes lead-in and lead-out spaces as well.
Playing CDs using the CD Control PLAY p button
Press the CD Control PLAY p button to select the 3-CD changer

Notes
• When recording with the SYNCHRO button, recording starts
when the input level is detected. If the track starts very quietly
(with a low input level), the beginning of the track may not be
recorded. When recording from an analog source, such as records
or tapes, recording may not start if the recording level is too low.
When this occurs, please perform manual recording.
Performing synchronized recording of a digital source
• Recording is started based on the digital signal.
• Track marking is based on track information recorded in the
digital signal. For digital sources other than CD, MD and DAT,
track marking is based on silent track space.
Performing synchronized recording of an analog source
• Recording is started when the unit detects an audio signal.
• Track marking is based on silent track space which the unit
interprets to be track breaks. If automatic track marking has
been turned off, manual track marking is necessary during the
recording process.
To stop recording at any time
Press the CDR Control STOP s button on the main unit or the s
(stop) button on the remote control.
• Synchronized recording to the CDR from an external
source.

Skipping a Recorded Track on a
CD-R or CD-RW (Track Skip)
Occasionally, there may be tracks on a disc that are partial,
repeated, or are otherwise unwanted. Before a CD-R or CD-RW is
finalized, it is possible to enter a skip marker for that track in the
PMA (Program Memory Area). A maximum of 21 skip marks can
be inserted on one disc. When a disc is finalized, the information of
tracks assigned a skip mark is written to the disc’s TOC (Table of
Contents) and those tracks will never be played (i.e., just as if they
had never been recorded.)

Finalizing a Disc
Finalizing a disc marks the final process in recording on a CD-R or
CD-RW disc. In this process, a TOC (Table Of Contents) is written
to the disc. When this procedure is completed, it will be possible to
play the CD-R or CD-RW disc on CD players compatible with CDR and/or CD-RW discs.
• Please note that once a CD-R disc has been finalized,
it is no longer possible to record to that disc.
• If the power of the unit is turned off or the AC power cord
unplugged from the wall outlet during the finalizing process, the
recording may be lost and the disc may no longer be usable.
• Even after a CD-RW disc has been finalized, further recording
and/or editing is possible if the TOC information on the disc is
erased using the Unfinalize function.
• When an unfinalized CD-R or CD-RW disc is loaded in the
CDR and the OPEN/CLOSE 0 button is pressed to open the
CDR disc tray, “FINALIZE?” is shown in the information display. To skip the finalization process, press the OPEN/CLOSE
0 button one more time. The disc will be ejected in the unfinalized state.

Bypassing the FS Converter
(Sampling Frequency
Converter*) for More Efficient
Digital Recording
The FS converter of this unit performs the conversion of digital signals from sources that use sampling frequencies other than
44.1 kHz to the sampling frequency of 44.1 kHz, which is necessary for recording the signals to a CD-R or CD-RW disc.
• When the FS converter is turned off, the converter is bypassed if
the digital signal of the source has a sampling frequency of
44.1 kHz and when analog and multiple input recording are performed.
• If source sampling frequencies of 32 kHz or 48 kHz are
detected, the FS converter is activated automatically and the signal is routed through it.
• When the FS converter is turned on, all signals to be recorded
are routed through it regardless of the sampling frequency, even
the 44.1 kHz digital signal is passed through it as the converter
works as a filter to reduce signal fluctuation in the disc recording. For this reason, having the function set to “ON” is recommended for most recording purposes.
• When recording specially encoded discs such as dts*1,
HDCD*2, etc., be sure to turn the converter off (setting to
“OFF”) using the following procedure (see step 4).

Due to copyright and other considerations, the following restriction
is now in place for CD-R and CD-RW discs onto which the digital
signals of CDs have been copied.
SCMS (Serial Copy
Management System)
The following is a brief description of some of the acronyms used
in this manual.
ATIP (Absolute Time in Pregroove)
The digital quality of CDs and other digital media can be recorded
to CD-R and CD-RW using the CDR function of this unit. However, it is not possible to make a second generation digital copy
from a first generation copy. This restriction, known as SCMS
(Serial Copy Management System), is intended to prevent unlimited digital copying in the interests of artists and other copyright
holders.
This unit is designed to comply with SCMS restrictions.

Glossary
NO
The reflected light returned from the pregroove of a CD-R disc
generates a carrier signal providing tracking, motor control and
focus signals. Additional information including the Recommended
Optimum Recording Power value is also encoded in a frequency
modulation of the carrier signal.
CD-R (Compact Disc-Recordable)
Recordable disc media. Also often referred to as write-once discs
as data can only be recorded one time.
CD-RW (Compact Disc-ReWritable)
Recordable disc media to which data can be recorded and erased
repeatedly.
OPC (Optimized Power Control)

CD-RW)
Second generation
copy (CD-R or CDRW)
The copyright laws allow recordings to be made for the personal
enjoyment of the individual user but they do not allow such recordings to be used for any other purpose without permission from the
rightful owner of the copyrights.
Notes
• If digital recording of a first generation digital copy is
attempted, “SCMS PROTECT” is shown in the information display, and the recording operation is canceled.
• In the case of synchronized recording operations, Listening Edit
recording and Program Edit recording, when the first-generation copy is a finalized CD-R or CD-RW disc loaded in the 3CD changer, the recording type is automatically changed from
digital to analog, and the recording type indicators light accordingly. (If high-speed dubbing is turned on, it will be turned off
when the recording type is changed.)

RQT6087
Analysis of recordable CD media to determine the optimum power
setting for recording of data to the disc.
PCA (Power Calibration Area)
A space reserved at the beginning of a disc for calibrating the laser
power needed to record that disc.
PMA (Program Memory Area)
On a recordable disc, it is the area that “temporarily” holds the
information about the recordings on the disc: the track numbers
and the track starting and stopping points when written in a session
that is not yet closed (unfinalized disc). When the session is closed
(the disc is finalized), this information is written to the TOC.
TOC (Table of Contents)
The area on a CD to which is recorded various information of the
disc contents such as the number of tracks, their starting points, and
the total length of the data area.

Troubleshooting
If the unit fails to operate properly even when the remedial action suggested above has been taken:
This unit uses a microcomputer to perform a large number of operations. If it fails to operate no matter which button is pressed, disconnect the
power cord, and then wait a few moments before re-connecting it. Then set the time and re-program the timer.
Notes
• If something important is going to be recorded, always test-record first to check that the recording turns out properly before proceeding
with the actual recording.
• The manufacturer assumes no liability whatsoever for any damages resulting from missed opportunities or accidental erasure that occurs
while conducting recording or play operations due to malfunctioning of or trouble in the unit, or for any incidental damage.
