Introduction

We would like to thank you for purchasing one of our JVC products.

Before operating this unit, read this manual carefully and thoroughly to obtain the best possible performance from your unit, and retain this manual for future reference.

About This Manual

This manual is organized as follows:

The manual mainly explains operations using the buttons and controls on the unit. You can also use the buttons on the remote control if they have the same or similar names (or marks) as those on the unit.

If operation using the remote control is different from that using the unit, it is then explained.

• Basic and common information that is the same for many functions is grouped in one place, and is not repeated in each procedure. For instance, we do not repeat the information about turning on/off the unit, setting the volume, changing the sound effects, and others, which are explained in the section “Common Operations” on pages 9 to 11.

• The following marks are used in this manual:

Gives you warnings and cautions to prevent from damage or risk of fire/electric shock.

Also gives you information which is not good for obtaining the best possible performance from the unit.

Gives you information and hints you had better know.

Power sources

• When unplugging from the wall outlet, always pull the plug, not the AC power cord.

DO NOT handle the AC power cord with wet hands.

Moisture condensation

Moisture may condense on the lens inside the unit in the following cases:

• After heating starts in the room

• In a damp room

• If the unit is brought directly from a cold to a warm place

Should this occur, the unit may malfunction. In this case, leave the unit turned on for a few hours until the moisture evaporates, unplug the AC power cord, and then plug it in again.

Internal heat

A cooling fan is mounted on the rear panel to prevent heat buildup inside the unit.

For safety, observe the following carefully:

• Make sure there is good ventilation around the unit. Poor ventilation could overheat and damage the unit.

• DO NOT block the cooling fan and the ventilation openings or holes. If they are blocked by a newspaper or cloth, etc., the heat may not be able to get out.

Precautions

Installation

• Install in a place which is level, dry and neither too hot nor too cold—between 5˚C (41˚F) and 35˚C (95˚F).

• Install the unit in a location with adequate ventilation to prevent internal heat buildup in the unit.

• Leave sufficient distance between the unit and the TV.

• Keep the speakers away from the TV to avoid interference with TV.

DO NOT install the unit in a location near heat sources, or in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust or vibration.

Others

• Should any metallic object or liquid fall into the unit, unplug the unit and consult your dealer before operating any further.

• If you are not going to operate the unit for an extended period of time, unplug the AC power cord from the wall outlet.

DO NOT disassemble the unit since there are no user serviceable parts inside.

If anything goes wrong, unplug the AC power cord and consult your dealer.

Disc Play Introduction

This unit has been designed to play back the following discs:

• CD (Audio CD)

• CD-R (CD-Recordable)

• CD-RW (CD-ReWritable)

• MP3 disc (MP3 files recorded on a CD-R or CD-RW)

When playing a CD-R or CD-RW

User-edited CD-Rs (CD-Recordable) and CD-RWs

(CD-ReWritable) can be played back only if they are already

“finalized.”

• You can play back your original CD-Rs or CD-RWs recorded in music CD format or in MP3 format. (However, they may not be played back depending on their characteristics or recording conditions.)

• Before playing back CD-Rs or CD-RWs, read their instructions or cautions carefully.

• Some CD-Rs or CD-RWs may not be played back on this unit because of their disc characteristics, damage or stain on them, or if the player’s lens is dirty.

• CD-RWs may require a longer readout time. This is caused by the fact that the reflectance of CD-RWs is lower than for regular discs.

About the CD ready lamps

Each CD ready lamp corresponds to the disc tray of the same number.

• When and why they light up?

– When you turn on the unit for the first time after plugging into a wall outlet, all CD ready lamps (CD1

READY, CD2 READY, and CD3 READY) light up.

From the next time on, CD ready lamp(s) light(s) up according to the previous condition.

– Each time you press the disc tray open/close buttons

0

(CD1, CD2, and CD3), the corresponding CD ready lamp lights up.

• When and why they go off?

Only when the unit detects there is no disc loaded on a certain tray, the corresponding CD ready lamp goes off.

(“NO DISC 1,” “NO DISC 2,” or “NO DISC 3” appears on the display.)

• When and why they flash?

The corresponding CD ready lamp flashes during playback and pause.

MP3 Introduction

What is MP3?

MP3 is an abbreviation of Motion Picture Experts Group 1

(or MPEG-1) Audio Layer 3. MP3 is simply a file format with a data compression ratio of 1:10 (128 kbps*). By using

MP3 format, one CD-R or CD-RW can contains 10 times as much data volume as a regular CD can.

* Bit rate is the average number of bits that one second of audio data will consume. The unit uses kbps (1,000 bits per second). To get a better audio quality, choose a higher bit rate. The most popular bit rate for encoding (recording) is 128 kbps.

MP3 disc structure

On an MP3 disc, each song (material) is recorded as a file.

Files are grouped into a directory (or folder). Directories can also include other directories, creating hierarchical directory layers. (See “How are MP3 files recorded and played back?” on page 14.)

This unit manages files and directories as “tracks” and “groups.”

This unit can recognize up to 255 tracks per group, up to 64 groups per disc (up to 16,320 tracks). The unit ignores those exceeding the maximum numbers and cannot play them back.

About MP3 discs

• MP3 discs (either CD-R or CD-RW) require a longer readout time.

(It varies due to the complexity of the recording configuration.)

• When making an MP3 disc, select ISO 9660 Level 1 or Level 2 as the disc format.

• This unit does not support multisession recording.

• This unit can play MP3 files only with the following file extensions—

“.MP3,” “.Mp3,” “.mP3,” and “.mp3.”

• Files other than MP3 are ignored.

• Some MP3 discs may not be played back because of their disc characteristics or recording conditions.

If the loaded disc is an MP3 disc

The corresponding CD ready lamp and the MP3 indicator will light up.

How are MP3 files recorded and played back?

MP3 “tracks (files)” can be recorded in “group”—folders or directories, in PC terminology.

During recording, the tracks and groups can be arranged similarly to the tracks and folders/directories of computer data. “Root” is similar to the root of a tree. Every track and group can be linked to the root.

In compliance with ISO 9660, the maximum allowable depth of nested directories—so called “hierarchy”—is eight

(inclusive of the root).

Playback order, track search order, and group search order of the MP3 tracks recorded on a disc are determined by the writing (or encoding) application; therefore, playback order may be different from the one you have intended while recording the groups and the tracks.

The illustration shows an ordinary example of how MP3 tracks are recorded on a CD-R or CD-RW, how they are played back and how they are searched for on this unit.

• The numbers in circles next to the MP3 tracks ( ) indicate the playback order and search order of the MP3 tracks.

Normally this unit plays back MP3 tracks in the recorded order.

• The numbers inside the groups indicate the playback order and search order of the groups on an MP3 disc. Normally this unit plays back MP3 tracks in the groups in the recorded order.

The groups marked with asterisk (*) will be skipped since they do not include any MP3 tracks.

• Noise (often caused by much use or poor quality dubbing) which fills the blank.

• Long, very soft passages or pauses in a song.

The use of the C-120 or thinner tape is not recommended, since characteristic deterioration may occur and this tape easily jams in the pinchrollers and the capstans.

Recording

IMPORTANT:

It should be noted that it may be unlawful to re-record pre-recorded tapes, records, or discs without the consent of the owner of copyright in the sound or video recording, broadcast or cable program and in any literary, dramatic, musical, or artistic embodied therein.

• The recording level is automatically set correctly, so it is not affected by the VOLUME, the SUBWOOFER LEVEL, and the SOUND MODE controls. Thus, during recording you can adjust the sound you are actually listening to without affecting the recording level.

• If there are excessive noise or static in the recording you have made, the unit may be too close to a TV. Increase the distance between the TV and the unit.

• You can use type I tape for recording.

To protect your recording

Cassettes have two small tabs on the back to protect from unexpected erasure or rerecording.

To protect your recording, remove these tabs.

To re-record on a protected tape, cover the holes with adhesive tape.

To keep the best recording and playback sound quality

If the heads, capstans, and pinch rollers of the cassette deck become dirty, the following will occur:

• Impaired sound quality

• Discontinuous sound

• Fading

• Incomplete erasure

• Difficulty in recording

To clean the heads, capstans, and pinch rollers

Use a cotton swab moistened with alcohol.
