LASER PRODUCT
We Want You Listening For A Lifetime
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.
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.

Features of the PDR-609 CD recorder
Create your own audio CDs
At last, there's a convenient and affordable way to make your own audio CDs. Create your own original recordings, or put together
compilations of your favorite tracks from your existing CDs. Other uses include making high-quality recordings from radio or
satellite broadcasts, and making personal copies of CDs, MDs, etc. to keep in the car, keeping the originals safe at home. The CD text
feature of the PDR-609 allows you put text information on your recordings to easily identify and select from the contents.
Make digital recordings from any source
The PDR-609 can accept digital input via optical or coaxial cable, meaning that you can connect it to almost any other digital audio
component. Also, thanks to the built in sampling rate converter, you can make direct digital recordings from satellite (usually
32kHz), DCC and DAT (up to 48kHz), as well as CD and MD (both 44.1kHz). A sampling rate converter ‘through’ feature (for 44.1kHz
sources only) enables you to record HDCD and DTS encoded CDs too. Analog sources are also catered for with the analog line inputs,
suitable for connection to standard audio components such as cassette decks and turntables.
Use both ordinary recordable CDs and rewritable CDs
Ordinary recordable CDs (CD-R) can be recorded on just once, but the relatively cheap cost of blank discs and the ability to play the
recorded discs on any ordinary CD player* make them ideal for many applications. Compact Disc Rewritable, or CD-RW, is a more
recent type of recordable CD that allows erasing and re-recording of the disc. Although the blank discs are more expensive, this ability
to use the discs over and over gives them the edge in terms of flexibility over CD-R**.
* While most CD players should have no problems with
CD-R discs, if the laser pickup is dirty (from prolonged exposure to tobacco smoke, for example), the player may not be able to
read some CD-R discs.
** At the time of writing, most ordinary CD players cannot play CD-RW discs. Check in the instructions that came with the player for
compatibility.
Checking what’s in the box
Hints on installation

English
Putting the batteries in the remote control
• Turn over the remote control, then press and slide the battery compartment cover off.
• Put in the batteries supplied, taking care to match the plus and minus ends of each battery with the markings inside the
compartment.
• Slide the cover back on, and your remote is ready for use.
Caution!
Incorrect use of batteries can result in hazards such as leakage and bursting. Please observe the following:
• Don’t mix new and old batteries together
• Don’t use different kinds of battery together—although they may look similar, different batteries may have different voltages.
• Make sure that the plus and minus ends of each battery match the indications in the battery compartment.
• Remove batteries from equipment that isn’t going to be used for a month or more.
• When disposing of used batteries, please comply with governmental regulations or environmental public institution’s rules that
apply in your country or area.
Avoiding condensation problems
Handling discs
Condensation may form inside the player if it is brought into
a warm room from outside, or if the temperature of the room
rises quickly. Although the condensation won’t damage the
player, it may temporarily impair its performance. For this
reason you should leave it to adjust to the warmer temperature for about an hour before switching on and using.
When holding CDs of any type, take care not to leave
fingerprints, dirt or scratches on the disc surface. Hold the disc
by its edge or by the center hole and edge. Damaged or dirty
discs can affect playback and/or recording performance. Take
care also not to scratch the label side of the disc. Although not
as fragile as the recording side, scratches can still result in a
disc becoming unusable.
Care and maintenance
Should a disc become marked with fingerprints, dust, etc.,
clean using a soft, dry cloth, wiping the disc lightly from the
center to the outside edge. If necessary, use a cloth soaked in
alcohol, or a commercially available CD cleaning kit to clean
a disc more thoroughly. Never use benzine, thinner or other
cleaning agents, including products designed for cleaning
vinyl records.
Cleaning external surfaces
To clean the compact disc recorder, wipe with a soft, dry cloth.
For stubborn dirt, wet a soft cloth with a mild detergent
solution made by diluting one part detergent to 5 or 6 parts
water, wring well, then wipe off the dirt. Use a dry cloth to
wipe the surface dry. Do not use volatile liquids such as
benzene and thinner which may damage the surfaces.
Moving the unit
If you need to move the unit, first switch it off and unplug
from the wall outlet. Never lift or move the unit
during playback or recording—the disc rotates at a
high speed and may be damaged.
Wipe lightly from the
center of the disc
using straight strokes.
Don’t wipe the disc
surface using circular
strokes.
Storing optical cable
When storing optical cable, coil loosly as
shown at right. The cable may be
damaged if bent around sharp corners.

Storing discs
Discs to avoid
Although CD, CD-R and CD-RW discs are more durable than
vinyl records, you should still take care to handle and store
discs correctly. When you're not using a disc, return it to its
case and store upright. Avoid leaving discs in excessively cold,
humid, or hot environments (including under direct
sunlight).
CDs spin at high speed inside the player during playback and
recording. If you can see that a disc is cracked, chipped,
warped, or otherwise damaged, don't risk using it in your CD
recorder or player—you could end up damaging the unit.
When labeling discs, use a felt-tip pen sold for marking CDs.
Don't glue paper or put stickers onto the disc, or use a pencil,
ball-point pen or other sharp-tipped writing instrument.
These could all damage the disc.
For more detailed care information see the instructions that
come with discs.
About CD, CD-R and
CD-RW discs
The PDR–609 is compatible with three types of compact disc:
Playback-only CDs
This unit will playback any ordinary audio CDs
carrying the Compact Disc Digital Audio mark
shown right.
CD-Recordable discs
Recordable CDs, or CD-R, carry the mark
shown right, and are 'write once'. This means
that having recorded something on the disc it
is permanent—it can't be re-recorded or
erased.
CD-Rewritable discs
Rewritable CDs, or CD-RW, carry the mark
shown right. As the name indicates, you can
erase and re-record material on these discs so
that they can be used over and over again.
CD TEXT discs
8
En
CD Text discs, carry the mark shown right.
These are commercially available discs that
will display the disc title, artist name, and
track titles of the disc when played in a CD
text compatible player.
Downloaded from www.Manualslib.com manuals search engine
The PDR–609 is designed for use with conventional, fully
circular CD’s only. Use of shaped CD’s is not recommended for
this product. Pioneer disclaims all liability arising in
connection with the use of shaped CD’s.
CD lens cleaner
The compact disc recorder's pickup lens should not become
dirty in normal use, but if for some reason it should
malfunction due to dirt or dust, consult your nearest Pioneer
authorized service center. Although lens cleaners for compact
disc recorders are commercially available, we do not
recommend using them since some may damage the lens.
Consumer-use discs
The PDR–609 is only compatible with special consumer-use
CD-R and CD-RW discs. These are clearly marked For
Music Use Only, For Consumer, or For Consumer Use. Other types of CD-R or CD-RW discs, such as
those available for computer-based CD recorders, will not
work with this recorder.

1 Before you start
Recording copyright material
Unlike other recording media, recordable CDs have a number
of distinct states, and what you can do with a disc depends on
the current state of the disc. The figure below shows the three
states—blank, partially recorded, and finalized—and
summarizes what’s possible (✔) and impossible (✘) in each.
The price of a consumer-use disc includes a copyright fee that
has been paid to the copyright owner (in countries where the
copyright fee collection system has been established based on
their respective copyright laws). This means that you can use
these discs to record music and other material for your
personal use. If you want to use a disc for anything other than
personal use, you must get permission from the copyright
owner (note that copyright laws vary from country to country;
check the copyright-related laws in your particular country for
more information).

Recording and finalizing discs
The process of finalization fixes the contents of a CD-R in
place for good by creating a Table of Contents (TOC, for short)
at the beginning of the disc which tells other players exactly
what's on the disc and where to find it. See Finalizing a disc
on page 42 for more on finalization.

Before making or changing the connections, switch off the
power and disconnect the power cord from the AC outlet.
Note: It is not possible to daisy-chain several units together
for digital duplication.
Connecting up for digital
playback & recording
The diagrams on these pages show possible connections with
various other components in your system. Before you start
connecting your system, make sure that all the components
are switched off and disconnected from the wall outlet.
About optical and coaxial jacks
The PDR–609 has both optical and coaxial jacks for both
digital input and output. There’s no need to connect both, but
since some equipment has only one type of connector—and
you can only connect like with like—having both on this
unit can be an advantage.
To use the optical jack, you’ll need an optical cable. These are
readily available at audio dealers. When buying, check that
the cable is no longer than 3m.
10
Choose either the coaxial
or the optical connector.
or
Digital recording component
(CD-R, MD, DAT recorder, etc.)
cable around sharp corners as this can damage the cable.
Likewise, when storing optical cable, coil loosely (as shown on
page 8).
If you’re using one of the coaxial-type digital connectors
you’ll need a lead with an RCA/phono plug at each end (the
same type of connector as the Video cable).
Using the digital inputs
To make direct digital recordings on the PDR–609 you’ll need to
connect the digital output of a source (like a CD, MD, or DAT
player) to one of the digital inputs on this unit. To make
recordings from analog sources (like a turntable or cassette
deck) it’s usually easiest to connect this player to your amplifier/
receiver’s tape inputs and outputs—see page 15 for more on this.
Using the digital outputs
If you have another digital recorder, such as a MD or DAT
recorder, you might want to use the PDR–609 as a digital
source. In this case, connect one of the digital outputs of the
PDR–609 to a similar digital input on your other digital
recorder.
CD text compatible components
Pull out the dust cap and store it in a safe
place for future use. Check that both
optical plug and socket are free from
dust—if necessary, clean with a soft, dry
cloth. The optical lead will only go in one
way, so match up the jack and the plug
before inserting fully.
If you wish to record CD text as well as audio information
from an external CD player (compatible with CD text), you
must connect the CONTROL IN on the unit to the
CONTROL TEXT jack on the PDR-609 using a commercially available cord with a mono mini-plug. At the time of
writing, the Pioneer PD-F1009 is the only CD player that can
perform this operation.
When connecting optical leads, take care not to bend the
Note: Make sure that at least one set of analog terminals is
connected to the amplifier when using CD text control cords.

Connecting up for analog
playback & recording
Before you start, make sure that all the components are
switched off and disconnected from the wall outlet.
Next, connect this unit to your amplifier/receiver using the
two sets of supplied audio leads—one set for playback, the
other for recording. On the rear panel of your amplifier find
an unused set of inputs/outputs for a tape/md recorder (check
the instruction manual that came with your amplifier if
you’re unsure about which terminals to use).
POWER-CORD CAUTION
Handle the power cord by the plug part. Do not pull out the
plug by tugging the cord, and never touch the power cord
when your hands are wet, as this could cause a short circuit or
electric shock. Do not place the unit, a piece of furniture, or
other object on the power cord or pinch the cord in any other
way. Never make a knot in the cord or tie it with other cords.
The power cords should be routed so that they are not likely to
be stepped on. A damaged power cord can cause a fire or give
you an electric shock. Check the power cord once in a while.
When you find it damaged, ask your nearest Pioneer
authorized service center or your dealer for a replacement.
Using this set up you can make recordings from any other
component connected to the amplifier, via the analog inputs
of this unit.
Connecting other Pioneer Î
components
If you are using a Pioneer amplifier or receiver that has this
feature, you can control this unit with the multi-remote
controller that came with your amplifier/receiver. The
advantage of this is that you can use a single remote control
to operate several components. Check the instruction manual
that came with your amplifier or receiver for more information on using its remote as a multi-controller.
Use a commercially available cord with a mono mini-plug at
either end to connect the CONTROL OUT terminal of the
amplifier/receiver to the CONTROL IN terminal of this unit.
Note: Make sure that at least one set of analog terminals is
connected to the amplifier when using Î control cords.

The PDR-609 is designed to let you make
extremely high quality digital recordings
onto recordable compact discs. For
flexibility, you can use either rewritable
discs (CD-RW) or write-once discs (CD-R).
For more general information on the discs
you can and can’t use with this recorder,
see About CD, CD-R and CD-RW Discs on
page 10. The following 2-page overview
gives you some idea of what the PDR-609
is capable of, and also provides guidance
on what to avoid and things to be careful
of when recording. We strongly recommend that you read these pages fully
before proceeding to the more detailed
instructions on the following pages.

In addition to standard audio CDs, this
recorder will record DTS encoded audio
CDs and HDCD format CDs (in this case,
the recording level must be set to 0dB).
Almost all commercial digital source
material is protected by copyright laws. For
this reason, the PDR-609 uses special
consumer-use blank CD-R and CD-RW
discs on which a copyright fee has already
been paid. A further restriction comes in
the form of SCMS (an acronym for Serial
Copy Management System).

4 Getting Started
This generally allows just one generation of digital recording.
In other words, you can make a digital recording from an
original source (such as a commercial CD), but you can’t
then make further digital recordings from that copy. Most
digital recording equipment uses the SCMS system, including
CD and MD recorders, and DAT decks. You may also find that
you can’t record certain DVD discs as the digital output of the
DVD player can be disabled by the disc.
Of course, if you do encounter SCMS or other digital-copy
restrictions, you can always record through the analog inputs
of the PDR-609. To check whether a source is digital-copy
protected, see Checking for Digital Copy Protection on page
60.
Recording modes
The recorder is equipped with a set of analog input terminals,
as well as both optical and coaxial digital inputs. This means
that the PDR–609 is compatible with almost all audio
sources—analog or digital. It even has a built in sampling
rate converter making it ideal for recording DAT tapes or
satellite broadcasts, for example, which are often at sampling
rates different to that of CD. Since CDs are always recorded at
a sampling rate of 44.1kHz, sample rate conversion is
completely automatic—if the recorder senses a digital signal
at either 32 or 48kHz, it will convert it to 44.1kHz. Note that
this recorder can't convert 96kHz digital sources (such as
some DAT tapes and DVD discs).
Miscellaneous information
• The minimum recordable time is four seconds.
• Usually, track numbers are recorded onto the disc
automatically when recording. If you decide to switch off
this feature (for example, when you’re recording from a
satellite broadcast), be sure to input track markers as
recording is taking place—you can’t add them after
recording is complete. See pages 33 for more on manual
and automatic track numbering.
• The maximum number of tracks on a disc is 99.

En
Downloaded from www.Manualslib.com manuals search engine
Digital recording from DAT
If you’re recording a DAT tape that was recorded using the
DAT machine's auto ID function, the IDs on the tape are
slightly after the beginning of the actual recording. This can
cause problems for the CD recorder:
• The start of the track may not be recorded.
• The track number will be recorded on the disc after the
start of the track.
• The beginning of the next track on the DAT is unintentionally recorded.
To avoid these problems, we recommend recording start IDs
on the DAT manually, if possible. If this is not possible, or if
there are no start IDs on the DAT, we recommend using
manual track numbering while recording to CD to ensure
that new tracks are starting in the right places. Refer to the
instructions for your DAT recorder for more information.
You might also encounter problems if you try to synchrorecord all tracks from a DAT that is set to program play. If you
want to record a DAT in program play mode, use the 1-track
synchro recording mode—see pages 20 for how to do this.
Digital signal interruptions
Sources of signal interruption include power or source
component failure, accidental disconnection of the interconnect cord, and interruption of digital satellite broadcasts. In
all these cases, if the signal resumes within about five seconds,
the result will just be a blank section on the disc. If the
interruption is longer than five seconds, the recorder displays
the error message: DIN UNLOCK and recording is paused.
Power interruptions
Never switch off the PDR-609 while it's recording, or while the
display shows PMA REC (Program Memory Area Recording).
If there's a power failure, or you accidently disconnect the
power from the wall outlet while recording is in process, you'll
lose at least part of the recording.
After recording, always remove the disc from the recorder
before switching the power off. Failure to do this could result
in you losing some of the recorded material on the disc.
4 Getting Started
If you want to record just a single track, or
a few selected tracks, from a digital (CD,
MD, DCC or DAT) or an analog source, the
recorder can start and stop automatically.
With digital recording, there's no need to
worry about recording levels—you'll get a
perfect digital copy of the original (if you
want to change the digital recording level,
see pages 23).
If you are recording from a noisy analog
source, such as a vinyl record, or from a
source with long quiet sections, the
recorder may not recognize the end of the
track. In this case, we recommend using
manual recording (see pages 22).

If the recorder detects no signal for one

recording is possible after this so make
sure that there aren’t any spaces of more
than one minute during the source you’re
recording). See Automatically numbering tracks on page 33 to set the silence
threshold.
Finalization takes about two minutes,
during which time none of the buttons are
operative.
Never turn the power off during finalization!
• If a digital signal is interrupted, the
recorder continues recording. However,
if no signal has been detected within
five seconds, the recorder pauses
recording and will not finalize the
disc—see Digital signal interruptions
on page 18.
• If the recorder reaches the end of the

Manual recording
Use the manual recording method with a
source where syncho recording is not
suitable. For example, if you are recording
from either radio, or a digital satellite,
synchro recording is not possible since
there are no track numbers or start IDs to
signal the start and end points of the
recording. Manual recording is also useful
with a noisy analog source, such as a vinyl
record, or from a source with long quiet
sections, where the recorder may not
recognize the end of tracks.

One of the advantages of digital-to-digital
recording is that you don't have to set
recording levels—and risk distortion by
overloading the disc. If you're recording
commercial material from CD or MD, the
digital level has already been optimized
and you don't need to change it. If you're
making a digital copy of a CD, DAT or MD
that was not commercially produced and
that was consistently under-recorded, you
can boost the overall level by up to +20dB.
Remember though, that any peaks in the
original recording run the risk of
distorting the copy.

4 Getting started
Finalizing a disc
Before you can play a CD-R on an ordinary
CD player, the disc must go through a
process called finalization. Once finalized,
a CD-R disc is no longer recordable, nor
will you be able to set or clear skip IDs.
Finalization is not reversible for CD-Rs so
be absolutely sure that everything on the
disc is the way you want it before you start.
CD-RW discs can also be finalized,
although you can still erase the disc
afterward and reuse it, so it's not anything
like as final as it is with a CD-R disc. A
finalized CD-RW disc can only be played
on a CD player that is compatible with CDRW discs (at present, these are very few).
Caution!
Finalization takes a couple of minutes.
During this time never switch off the power
to the unit—the disc may become
unusable as a result.
1
Load the CD-R or CD-RW you
want to finalize.
Check that the disc is free from dust, dirt
and scratches—if necessary, clean the
disc, following the guidelines on page 8.
2
Press FINALIZE.
The FINALIZE indicator lights.
After a short while you should see a display

changes to simply CD.

For a CD-RW, the finalize indicator lights

None of the controls on the player or the
remote have any effect during finalization.
If, however, the recorder hasn't managed
to finalize the disc within 10 minutes, you
can abort the operation by pressing 7 . If
you do this, the disc won't be playable on
an ordinary CD player.

Although you can't erase tracks on a CD-R
disc, you can set what are called 'skip IDs'.
These tell a CD player (though not all
recognize skip IDs) not to play a particular
track, and to skip to the next one on the
disc.
You can also set skip IDs on CD-RWs,
although it's probably a less useful feature
since erasing the last track is possible
should you make a mistake in recording.
If you make a mistake when setting a skip
ID, you can clear it, but be careful: you
can set up to 21 skip IDs per disc, but
repeatedly setting and clearing skip IDs
will reduce this number.

If you're recording from CD, MD, DCC or
DAT, you can usually let the recorder
number the tracks automatically as they
change on the source material. When
recording other digital or analog sources,
the recorder will start a new track if it
detects more than 2 seconds of silence.
However if you’re recording a noisy vinyl
record or a classical recording with long
quiet sections, the recorder may not always
regognize the gap between tracks. For this
reason you can adjust the level of sound
that the recorder regards as ‘silence’.

Although automatic track numbering is
the default mode of the recorder, you can
number tracks manually as recording is
taking place. In some cases—such as
recording from digital satellite or
Laserdisc, or from an analog source—
auto track numbering may not work
reliably (in these cases, a new track is
started after the recorder detects two
seconds of silence), and it's better to use
manual track numbering.
