INTRODUCTION
LOCKABLE REM TRACK TIME MODE
The CD time display can be toggled between the various modes of display.
In addition to this, when a display mode is set the unit will remain in the
selected mode until you change it.
This is particularly useful for DJ’s monitoring the audio during performances
and programs.
Thank you for selecting the Marantz PMD350 combination Stereo Cassette
Deck/CD Player. Please read these operating instructions carefully. We
recommend that you read the entire user guide prior to connecting and
operating the unit. It is also recommended that all connections be made
prior to operating the unit.
ONE TRACK PLAY AND STOP MODE
Please refer to this manual to identify controls and connections
for operation of the unit.
The PMD350 can be set to allow for the CD player to play the selected track
and return to the stop mode rather than continue on to the next track on the
CD.
PRECAUTIONS
The following precautions should be taken when operating the equipment.
AUDIO QUE CD PLAY
GENERAL PRECAUTIONS
The CD player on the PMD350 contains the Audio Que feature. This feature
allows the CD player to advance to the beginning of the audio within the
track rather than start from the track start
flag. This feature helps to minimize the silence at the beginning of a CD track
playback.
When setting the equipment ensure that:
- Air is allowed to circulate freely around the equipment.
- The equipment is on a vibration free surface.
- The equipment will not be exposed to interference from an external
source.
- The equipment will not be exposed to excessive heat , cold, moisture
or dust.
- The equipment will not be exposed to direct sunlight.
• In addition, never place heavy objects on the equipment.
• Never place heavy objects on the equipment.
• Should the unit become exposed to moisture do not operate the unit
until it has been thoroughly inspected by a electrically competent
technician.
• Do not break the connection to the AC main power by pulling the power
cord. Remove from the outlet by pulling on the plug only.
DOLBY NR SYSTEMS
The Dolby Noise Reduction systems compress and amplify the tape during
recording in order to raise the signal-to-noise ratio on the tape. During
playback, these signals are expanded and
attenuated by the same amount in order to regain the original dynamic
range of music. An additional result of this expansion and attenuation is that
the noise floor of the recording is reduced significantly. Dolby B typically
reduces noise by 10dB.
Dolby C typically reduces noise by 20 dB.
DOLBY HX PRO HEADROOM EXTENSION
The Dolby HX PRO system monitors the total amount of effective bias
during recording and instantaneously compensates for any excess bias by
reducing the deck’s bias signal level accordingly. The system operates
independently on
each channel. HX Pro is unlike a noise reduction system because it
functions only during recording and no decoding is required. Therefore a
tape recorded with the HX Pro system
can be played back on any other cassette deck while retaining the benefits
of HX Pro.
FEATURES
QUICK OPTICAL AUTOREVERSE
In addition to the normal tension reversing circuitry the PMD350 tape
transport also employs optically sensed quick autoreverse circuitry. This
circuitry reacts to the clear areas of the tape, usually the leader tape, and,
when detected will reverse the
direction of the tape transport. This process minimizes the lose of signal
being recorded or played back. This reverse process applies to all tape
playback and recording modes , including autoreverse and continuous
mode.
TAPE AND CD PITCH CONTROL
The PMD350 tape player and CD player both allow for adjustment of the
playback pitch from -12% to +12%.The feature is particularly usefully for
adjusting the unit playback pitch to allow you to tune the PMD350 to
accompanying instruments and choirs.
RC-5 REMOTE CONTROL COMPATIBILITY
The PMD350 comes equipped with an RC-5 remote in and out port.
Through the use of various remote control options
Marantz has available the major functions of the unit can be operated via
wired or wireless remote control.
ONE TOUCH DUBBING
The PMD350 allows for the dubbing of the CD to the tape with one button
start control. This feature allows you to manually or automatically select the
recording level you desire.
DUAL CD MEMO POINTS
The PMD350 allows you to select two points within the CD playback mode
and repeat the audio playback within these points until a stop command is
issued.

By using the cascade feature on the PMD350 with other PMD350’s
or other Marantz products offering the cascade feature, several
units can be connected to supply long playback or recording
functionality.
If the cascade function is started with the tape first the PMD350
will go to CD playback next and then to the next component. If the
playback is started with the CD first the PMD350 will play the CD
then go to the next component.
Before beginning the cascade record function hand wind the tape
leaders so that no leader is showing. This will minimize interruptions in your recordings.

SYNCHRONIZED RECORDING CONTROL
be performed to optimize the operation of your Marantz equipment.
The PMD350 is capable of connecting with other Marantz RC-5
based products to allow for synchronized start of the product
recording through the starting of the play function of the CD player
or the tape transport of the PMD350.
By connecting the RC-5 output jack to the RC-5 input jack of
another Marantz recorder, the PMD350 will issue a command for
the recording to start as soon as the play control button is pressed
on the PMD350. Pressing the stop or the stop/eject control button
on the PMD source deck will place the attached component into
the record pause mode.
MAINTENANCE FOR TAPE
Head Cleaning
If the heads are not cleaned for a long period, dirt or dust may be
deposited on the heads and capstans, causing degraded highfrequency characteristics, volume drop, or degraded recording and
erasure performances.
To prevent this, clean the heads, etc., periodically as follows.
1. Turn the power off.
2. Open the cassette holder by pressing the EJECT button.
3. As shown in Figure 2, clean the parts which come in contact
with tape, including the heads, capstans, tape guides, pinch
wheels, etc., with a cotton swab soaked in head cleaning
solution.
During the cascade recording mode, the PMD350 can be attached
to other Marantz RC-5 based decks for the purpose of small scale
duplication of the dubbing source. This is accomplished by linking
the RC-5 output connector to the RC-5 input of the recording deck
and placing the PMD350 reverse mode control switch into the
cascade position.
Head Demagnetization
When a magnetized metallic objects (such as a screwdriver tip,
etc.) comes in contact with a head or capstan, or when the deck has
been used for a long period of time, the head may be magnetized
and noise may be generated. If the head is extremely magnetized,
the high frequencies in recorded tapes could even be erased.
To prevent this, demagnetize the heads and capstans periodically
(every 20 hours of use) using a commercially-available head demagnetizer. (For the operation, please refer to the instruction
manual supplied with your head demagnetizer.)
REMARKS
CAUTION
• If you must stop playback or recording in the middle of a tape,
be sure to press the STOP - button first, then turn the power off.
If the power is turned off in the middle of an operation, the
cassette tape remains loaded, and it may be impossible to eject.
In such a case, turn the power on, enter PLAY mode, then press
STOP, and the eject the tape.
• The same caution as above applies in case of power failure.
To prevent damage, never attempt to force the removal of a
cassette while the power is off.
Caution:
ERASURE OF TAPE
When a program source is recorded onto a tape, the previously
recorded sound is erased automatically, and replaced with the new
recording. If you wish to erase a tape without recording, set the
REC LEVEL control to the minimum(0) position and let the tape
travel in the Record mode.
CLEANING OF EQUIPMENAL SURFACES
The exterior finish of your unit will last indefinitely with proper care
and cleaning. Never use scouring pads, steel wool, scouring
powders or harsh chemical agents (e.g., lye solution), alcohol,
thinners, benzine, insecticide or other volatile substances, as these
will mar the finish of the equipment. Likewise, never use cloths
containing chemical substances. If the equipment gets dirty, wipe
the external surfaces with a soft, lint -free cloth.
AUTO TAPE SELECTOR
This unit is equipped with an auto tape selector whitch automatically sets the bias and equalizer level using the detection holes
porovided in the cassette shell. The bias and equalizer levels are
automatically set according to the type of cassette as follows. (See

Quick reverse operation will only occur after the transport has
been moving for 15 seconds. Before that time it take
approximatery 4 seconds to reverse.
One second of audio is lost during quick reverse.
Automatic search operations can only operate on one well at a
time.
Eject buttons will not function unless the deck is in the stop
mode. Thus, if the power is turned off without hitting the STOP
button, the door may not open.
The tape counters are only approximate measurements of minutes and seconds and are not intended for timing-critical applications. They are most accurate with 60 minute tapes.

COMPACT DISCS
The glossy side shining like a rainbow is the front side of the disc,
and the side on which the label is printed is the back.
Unlike conventional turntables for playing analog discs, Compact
Disc Player reads the information recorded on the disc from
underneath without contacting it using a beam of laser light.
Therefore, the performance of a compact disc will not degrade like
conventional analog records.
