Files in audio CD format and MP3
files on a finalized CD-R or CD-RW.
• MP3 discs require a longer readout time than
regular CDs. (It depends on the complexity of
the folder/file configuration.)
• Some MP3 files cannot be played back and will
be skipped. This results from their recording
processes and conditions.
• When making MP3 discs, use ISO 9660 Level 1
for the disc format.
• This unit can play back MP3 files with the
extension code <.mp3> (regardless of the
letter case upper/lower).
• It is recommended that you make each MP3
file at a sampling rate of 44.1 kHz and at a bit
rate of 128 kbps.
• Playback order of MP3 files may be different
from the one you have intended when
recording. If a folder does not contain MP3
files, it is ignored.
• This unit cannot play “packet written” discs.
• If a CD-RW has been recorded in a different
format, erase all data on the CD-RW completely
before recording on it.
• This unit can recognize up to 511 tracks and
255 folders on a disc. Those exceeding the
maximum number cannot be recognized.
• The reflection factor of CD-RW is lower than
that of other CDs, possibly causing CD-RW to
take a longer time to read.
• In this manual, “file” and “track” are
interchangeably used for MP3 operations.
MP3 folders/tracks configuration
This unit plays back MP3 tracks as follows.

Notes on cassette tapes
• Type-I tape is recommended for playback on
this unit. You can also play back type II and type
IV tapes; however, the sound quality (tone) may
not be reproduced properly.
• The use of tapes longer than 120 minutes is not
recommended, since characteristic deterioration
may occur and these tapes easily jam the pinch
roller and the capstan.
• To prevent recordings from being erased
accidentally, remove the tab(s) with a
screwdriver. If you want to re-record on a tape
or erase the content of it after its tabs have been
broken off, reseal the slots with adhesive tape.
R03 (UM-4)/AAA (24F) (supplied)
• If the range or effectiveness of the remote control
decreases, replace both batteries.
• The power will not be supplied through the batteries when the power is supplied through the AC IN
jack on the unit.
• The battery is consumed more quickly than usual when operating the unit continuously or operating it in a cold place.
To avoid battery leakage or explosion, handle batteries properly.
• If you are not going to use this unit for a month or more, remove the batteries from the battery compartment.
• Dispose of batteries in the proper manner, according to federal, state, and local regulations.
• Do not mix with batteries of different types or with new and old ones.
• Do not attempt to charge any batteries other than rechargeable ones.
• Discard leaky batteries immediately. Battery leakage can cause skin burns or other personal injuries.
• If chemicals leak onto the unit, clean the unit completely.
• Battery shall not be exposed to excessive heat such as sunshine, fire or the like.
To get the best performance from the unit, keep
your discs, tapes and mechanism clean.

Cleaning the unit
• Disconnect the power cord before cleaning.
• Wipe off stains with a soft cloth. If the unit is
heavily stained, wipe it with a cloth soaked in
water-diluted neutral detergent and wrung well,
then wipe clean with a dry cloth.
• Since the unit may deteriorate in quality,
become damaged or get its paint peeled off, be
careful about the following:
– DO NOT wipe it with a hard cloth.
– DO NOT wipe it forcefully.
– DO NOT wipe it with thinner or benzine.
– DO NOT apply any volatile substances such as
insecticides to it.
– DO NOT allow any rubber or plastic to remain
in contact for a long time.
Cleaning the CD pickup lens
Keep the CD pickup lens clean, or the sound may
be degraded. Use a blower (available at a camera
store, etc.) to blow dust off the lens.
Cleaning the heads, capstan and pinch roller
Clean the heads, capstan and pinch roller every 10
hours of use; otherwise, the following may occur:
• Sound quality is degraded.
• The sound output level decreases.
• The previous recording is not completely erased.
• The sound is not recorded well.
Open the cassette holder and clean the heads,
capstan and pinch roller with a cleaning kit (available
at an audio store). Do not use thinner or benzine for
After cleaning, make sure that the cleaning fluid has
dried completely before loading a cassette.

If the head is magnetized, noise will increase and
the sound quality will be degraded. To avoid this,
demagnetize the recording/playback head every
20 to 30 hours of use with a head demagnetizer
(available at an audio store). Turn off the unit before
demagnetizing the head.
• Do not demagnetize the erasure head as it is of
magnetic type.
Handling discs
• Remove the disc from its case by holding it at the
edge while pressing the center hole lightly.
• Do not scratch or touch the reflective recorded
• Do not stick or write anything on the label side.
• Do not bend discs.
• Avoid exposure to direct sunlight, extreme
temperature or moisture.
• When cleaning the disc, wipe it with a soft cloth
in a straight line from center to edge. DO NOT use
thinner, benzine, record cleaner or antistatic spray.
Handling cassette tapes
• Take up the slack of tape by inserting a pencil into
one of the reels and rotating. If the tape is played
without taking up the slack, it may get stretched,
cut or caught in the cassette.
• Be careful not to touch the tape surface.
• Avoid storing tapes in the following places:
– In dusty places
– In direct sunlight or heat
– In moist areas
– On a TV or a speaker
– Near a magnet
