* When the System is in use, the display shows other items as well.
For simplicity, we show here only the items described in this section.
Recording onto a cassette from any of the sound sources is simple.
Just place a tape in Deck B, have the source ready, make one or
two settings, and you’re ready to record. For each source, the procedure is a little bit different so we explain each separately. But
first, here are a few things to make your recordings better.
Things To Know Before You Start Recording
❏ It may be unlawful to record or play back copyrighted
material without the consent of the copyright owner.
❏ The recording level, which is the volume at which the new tape
is being made, is automatically set correctly, so it is not affected
by the VOLUME Control on the System. Also, it is not affected
by adjusting the sound effects. Thus, during recording, you can
adjust the sound you are actually listening to without affecting
the recording level.
❏ Two small tabs on the back of the cassette tape, one for side A
and one for side B, can be removed to prevent accidental erasure
or recording.
Adhesive tape
❏ To record on a cassette with the tabs removed, you must cover
the holes with adhesive tape first.
❏ Type I tape can be used for recording.
17
• At the start and end of cassette tapes, there is leader tape
which cannot be recorded onto. Thus, when recording
CDs, radio broadcasts, etc., wind on the leader tape first
to ensure getting the beginning of the recording.
CAUTION:
• If a recording you make has excessive noise or

This is the basic method for recording any source. The System also
has special ways for recording CD to tape, and tape to tape, which
save you time and effort, as well as give you some special effects.
However, when you need to add a selection to a tape you have
made, or are combining selections from several sources on one
tape, use the method described below; just substitute the source
you want into this procedure, such as a tape in Deck A, a CD, or
the Tuner. You can also record from an external equipment with
this procedure.

Use the Sleep Timer to turn the System off after a certain number
of minutes when it is playing. By setting the Sleep Timer, you can
fall asleep to music and know that your System will turn off by itself rather than play all night.
• You can only set the Sleep Timer when the System is on.
Since each timer can be set independently, you may wonder what
happens if the settings overlap. Here are the priorities for each timer:
❏ The REC Timer always has priority. This means that:
• If other timer is set to come on during a time when the REC
Timer is operating, the other timer just won’t come on at all,
so you will always get the entire program on a tape.
• If the REC Timer is set to come on while other timer is operating, the other timer will turn off just before the REC Timer
is set to turn on, and the REC Timer will then take over.
❏ The SLEEP Timer has the least priority. This means that if the
SLEEP Timer is set while DAILY Timer is operating, the
SLEEP Timer settings are cancelled. However, if DAILY Timer
is set to come on while the SLEEP Timer is operating, the
SLEEP Timer setting will be cancelled and the System will use
the settings from the DAILY Timer.

octagonal, etc.) can damage the System.
• Do not touch the tape surface.
English
• Remove the CD from its case by holding
it at the edges while pressing the case’s
center hole lightly.
• Do not touch the shiny surface of the
CD, or bend the CD.
English
English
• Put the CD back in its case after use to
prevent warping.
• Be careful not to scratch the surface of
the CD when placing it back in the case.
• Avoid exposure to direct sunlight, temperature extremes, and moisture.
• A dirty CD may not play correctly. If a
CD does become dirty, wipe it with a
soft cloth in a straight line from center to
edge.
CAUTION:
• Do not store the tape:
- In dusty places
- In direct sunlight or heat
- In moist areas
- On a TV or speaker
- Near a magnet
Cassette Deck
• If the heads, capstans, and pinch-rollers of the Cassette Deck
become dirty, the following will occur:
- Loss of sound quality
- Discontinuous sound
- Fading
- Incomplete erasure
- Difficulty recording
• Clean the heads, capstans, and pinch-rollers using a cotton
swab moistened with alcohol.
Capstan
Pinch-roller
• Do not use any solvent (for example, conventional record cleaner, spray thinner, benzine,
etc.) to clean a CD.
In general, you will have the best performance by keeping your
CDs and the mechanism clean.
• Store CDs in their cases, and keep them in cabinets or on
shelves.
• Keep the System’s Top Cover closed when not in use.
Moisture Condensation
Moisture may condense on the lens inside
the System in the following cases:
• After turning on heating in the room.
• In a damp room.
• If the System is brought directly from a
cold to a warm place.
Should this occur, the System may malfunction. In this case, leave the System
turned on for a few hours until the moisture
evaporates, unplug the AC power cord, and
then plug it in again.
English
English
