LISTENING TO CASSETTE TAPE
General operation
Press the “FUNCTION” button (24) to select and activate the TAPE Mode, the LCD display will show “TAPE”:
Cassette Playback The system will start playback automatically after a pre-recorded cassette tape has been
inserted into the Cassette slot of the unit (see line drawing below for the correct direction in
which to insert the tape).
The “Tape Forward / EJECT “ button (21) will stay at full height position while playing the tape.
Stop and Ejection
Press the “Tape Forward / EJECT“ button (21) completely inwards
- the cassette tape will be ejected though the Cassette Door
Cover (22).
The “Tape Forward / Eject“ button will stay at the lowest height position.
Fast forward
Press the “TAPE FORWARD / EJECT “ (21) button halfway in during Playback Mode - the tape
will wind in a forward direction. The button will stay at mid-height position.
Slightly press the “Tape Forward / EJECT “ button in again to resume normal playback - the
“Tape Forward / Eject“ button will resume at the highest position while playing.
Notes:
-
Make sure the direction is correct when inserting a tape into the cassette slot. Some searching noise will be
heard, this is quite normal.
The system cannot perform the normal playback function during Fast Forward mode.
It is strongly recommended the cassette tape is removed from the Cassette Player slot after each use - don’t
leave the cassette tape inside the system when you do not intend to play it.
Cassette Care
Two common causes of trouble experienced when using cassettes are:
1. Tape jamming, leading to uneven speed during playback.
2. Tape entangling, when the tape wraps itself around vital parts of the mechanism.
To avoid these problems occurring, take the following precautions:
a) Check that there are no loose layers of tape visible through the cassette centre window
(see fig. 1).
b) Take up any loose layers (using a pencil or ballpoint pen with hexagonal barrel) before
inserting the cassette (see fig. 2) into the mechanism.
Notes:
If the cassette feels tight whilst performing this operation (see fig. 2), the tape may
be jamming due to ridges formed in the winding of the tape (visible through the centre
window). In most cases, these may be removed by fast rewinding of the cassette from
one end to the other, turning it over and repeating this action again.
Do not expose cassettes to direct sunlight, dust or oil, and do not touch the tape surfaces.
Compact Disc Care
To remove a disc from its storage case, press down on the centre of the case and lift the disc out, holding it carefully
by the edges. Fingerprints and dust should be carefully wiped off the disc’s recorded surface with a soft cloth.
Unlike conventional Vinyl or Shellac records, compact discs have no grooves to collect dust and microscopic debris,
so a gentle wipe with a soft, lint-free dry and clean cloth should remove most particles. Wipe in a straight line from
the inside to the outside of the disc. Never use detergents or abrasive cleaners to clean the disc. If necessary,
use a CD cleaning kit. Small dust particles and light stains will have absolutely no effect on sound reproduction
quality. Never fix labels to the surface of compact discs or write on them, except gently with a special CD-R Pen.

B. CD RECORDING SETTINGS (on the remote control only)
i) Recording level
The recording level can be adjusted with the REC LEVEL +/- button (53/54) on the remote control to avoid distortion
if the record source level is too high.
ii) Track Separation during CD Recording
It is possible to separate the music tracks that are being recorded track-after-track, by using either the Auto (a) or
the Manual (b) mode before or during recording:
a) Auto mode
Press the “ AUTO/MANUAL“ button (57) when getting ready to use the recording function, the LCD display will show
-20db, -30db, -40db, and the “AUTO TRACK” icon will appear on the LCD display.
When the recording sound level has dropped below the -20 / -30 / -40dB (recording signal) respectively, the track
that is currently being recorded will end and at that moment a new track will be generated – afterwards the unit will
automatically continue recording the next track.
Note: It is recommended to set a lower recording level for a music source with clear performance (such as a CD or
MP3 via Aux-in), and set a higher recording level for a higher noise music source - such as a vinyl record (Phono):
“ – 20db or – 30db “ – for recording from Aux-in with a digital music source.
“ – 30db or – 40db “ – for recording from Tape or Phono mode.
“ ------- “ – auto mode off.
The above is just a recommendation, the actual performance varies and is affected by the differences in music
source. If the cut-off is always misjudged for certain music files, please use the Manual Mode (b) instead.
b) Manual mode
Press the “CD 2 track separation “
“ button (28) on the front panel (or 57 on the Remote Control) once - at any
time during recording - in any mode - and the system will generate a new track and continue recording. The word
“bUSY “ will briefly show on the LCD display, which indicates the unit is successfully creating a new track.
iii) Finalizing a CD-R(W) disc
You must convert the CD-R(W) disc into a standard Audio CD before you can play it back in any another Audio CD
player, including CD 1. This process is known as “FINALIZING” - a table of contents (TOC) will be written on the
CD at the same time. The procedure is as follows:
1. Select the CD 2 function mode (24), ensure the recorded CD-R(W) disc to be finalized is in the CD 2 tray.
2. Ensure the CD 1s not playing, and then press the FINALIZE button (26). “ Fin-d “ appears on the CD Recorder
operation display. (If you wish to quit the finalizing mode for any reason, press the “CD 2 Stop ” button (18).
3. Press the “CD 2 Play/Pause
” button (19) to start finalizing and the CD Recorder operation display will show
“ bUSY“ during this process.
4. After finalizing has completed, the CD tray will open automatically and “OPEN“ will appear on the CD Recorder
operation display.
Notes:
- The time it takes to finalize a disc depends on the contents of the recorded disc - this may take up to 15 minutes,
but usually less.
- No buttons will be working during the finalizing process.
- Never turn the power off or unplug the power cord during the finalizing process.
- Once recorded on and after finalizing a disc you cannot record again on a “CD-R” disc or erase any tracks.
- Although a finalized “CD-R” disc may play on other CD Players, remember that a finalized “CD-RW” disc is not
guaranteed to play on all other CD Players.
- Due to differences in compatibility with the unit of CD-R or CD-RW discs, please change to another brand, or
another disc in the pack, if you find the performance of the recording not satisfactory - this is not a malfunction.
iv) Erasing or Un-finalizing a CD-RW Disc
It is possible to erase the last recorded track or erase all tracks recorded on a “CD-RW” (re-writeable) disc.
Notes: It is NOT possible to un-finalize or delete tracks from a “CD-R” disc.
If you wish to erase the last track of a finalized “CD-RW”, you must UN-FINALIZE THE WHOLE disc first.
