Discs
Discs which can be played on this unit:
M Conventional audio CDs bearing the CD-DA logo on the label:
M Properly finalized CD-R and CD-RW discs
M MP3/WMA CDs
< Use a soft oil-based felt-tipped pen to write the information on
the label side. Never use a ball-point or hard-tipped pen, as this
may cause damage to the recorded side.
< Never use a stabilizer. Using commercially available CD stabilizers
with this unit will damage the mechanisms and cause them to
malfunction.
< Do not use irregular shape CDs (octagonal, heart shaped, business
card size, etc.). CDs of this sort can damage the unit:
Note:
< Depending on the quality of the disc and/or the condition of the
recording, some CD-R/CD-RW discs may not be playable.
< Copy-protected discs and other discs which do not conform to
the CD standard may not play back correctly in this player. If you
use such discs in this unit, TEAC Corporation and its subsidiaries
cannot be responsible for any consequences or guarantee the
quality of reproduction. If you experience problems with such
non-standard discs, you should contact the producers of the disc.
< Always place the disc on the disc tray with the label side
uppermost. (Compact discs can be played or recorded only on
one side.)
< To remove a disc from its storage case, press down on the center
of the case and lift the disc out, holding it carefully by the edges.
How to remove the disc
How to hold the disc
< Should the disc become dirty, wipe the surface radially (from
the center hole outward towards the outer edge) with a soft, dry
cloth:
< Never use such chemicals as record sprays, antistatic sprays or
fluid, benzine or thinner to clean the discs. Such chemicals will do
irreparable damage to the disc’s plastic surface.
< Discs should be returned to their cases after use to avoid dust
and scratches that could cause the laser pickup to “skip”.
< Do not expose discs to direct sunlight or high humidity and
temperature for extended periods. Long exposure to high
temperatures will warp the disc.
< Do not play any disc that is warped, deformed or damaged.
Playing such discs may cause irreparable harm to the playing
mechanisms.
< CD-R and CD-RW discs are more sensitive to the effects of heat
and ultraviolet rays than ordinary CDs. It is important that they
are not stored in a location where direct sunlight will fall on
them, and which is away from sources of heat such as radiators or
heat-generating electrical devices.
< If you are in any doubt as to the care and handling of a CD-R/CDRW disc, read the precautions supplied with the disc, or contact
the disc manufacturer directly.
MP3 and WMA
< This unit can play MP3 and WMA files recorded on a CD-R, CDRW.
< File names of MP3 or WMA should be alphanumeric characters.
This unit cannot display symbols and full-size or double-byte
characters (such as Japanese, Chinese, etc.) correctly. Also, be
sure to use the file extension. (“.mp3” for MP3 files, “.wma” for
WMA files.)
< MP3 files are mono or stereo MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3 format. This
unit can play MP3 files with sampling frequency 44.1 kHz or 48
kHz, bit-rate 320 kbps or less.
< This unit can play WMA files with sampling frequency 44.1 kHz,
bit-rate 192 kbps or less. WMA means Windows Media Audio.
< Audio encoded at 128 Kbps should sound close to regular audio
CD quality. Although this player will play lower bit-rate MP3
tracks, the sound quality becomes noticeably worse at lower bit
rates.
< The disc must be finalized in order to play.
< The CD-ROM must be ISO 9660 compatible.
< When more than 255 files are recorded on the disc, the unit
might not be able to play it correctly.
Speaker Installation
You can mount the left and right speakers on a wall. Or you can
stand the speakers in vertical position.
Precautions
< Be aware that the length of the cables are approximately 2 m. Do
not attempt to mount the speakers too far from the subwoofer.
< To hook the speakers on the wall, drill holes into solid wall
support, such as wooden frame or concrete wall.
< TEAC supplies the wall mounting brackets as a convenience
to the product owner. Consult your local building codes and
exercise all necessary caution when mounting these brackets. If
you are unsure how to use the supplied brackets, consult with a
local tradesmen or building supply expert.
To stand the speakers in the vertical position
1. Remove the stand of the speakers.
Remove the screws of the speaker stand.
To hook on the wall
1. Fix the brackets on the rear panel of the speakers using the
supplied screws.
2. Reattach the stand in the vertical position.
2. Use the supplied guide sheet to mark the exact drilling
points on the wall.
3. Drill holes in the wall at the marked points.
4. Screw the commercially available screws into the wall.
Leave about 3 mm space between the screw’s head and the wall.
5. Before going on, make connections between the subwoofer
and the speakers by referring to pages 6-7.
6. Carefully hang the speakers onto the screws.
Note:
Ensure that the speaker locks onto the hooks and that the hooks
are strong enough to support the weight before removing your
hands.

e Ensure that DAB coverage exists in your area.
Display goes out or displays “Station off-air”.
e This may occur if a broadcaster changes the label of a service
or removes a label whilst you are listening to it. The MCDX450iDAB will try to retune to this station, or alternatively
follow the procedure for auto tune on page 21.
Cannot listen to the selected station.
e Ensure you have pressed the SELECT button when you want to
listen to your selection. The station you are currently listening
to will be displayed on the first line of the display, as you
scroll through the station order list the second line will show
other station options. Press the SELECT button to activate your
selection.
A burbling sound is heard on some stations.
e DAB like other digital media is good at producing quality audio
from a low level signal. However, if this signal level is too low, a
“burbling” sound can sometimes be heard. To reduce this, try
repositioning your antenna to gain maximum signal strength.
If normal operation cannot be recovered, unplug the power
cord from the outlet and plug it again.
Beware of condensation
When the unit (or a disc) is moved from a cold to a warm place,
or used after a sudden temperature change, there is a danger of
condensation; vapor in the air could condense on the internal
mechanism, making correct operation erratic or impossible.
To prevent this, or if this occurs, leave the unit for one or two
hours with the power turned on. The unit will stabilize at the
temperature of its surroundings.
Maintenance
If the surface of the unit gets dirty, wipe with a soft cloth or
use diluted mild liquid soap. Never spray liquid directly on this
unit. Apply your cleaner to your cleaning cloth and wipe gently.
Be sure to remove any excess completely. Do not use thinner,
benzene or alcohol as they may damage the surface of the unit.
Allow the surface of the unit to dry completely before using.
