ERASE PROTECTION
When you record new material, the cassette deck records over whatever is on a tape. To protect a tape from accidental erasure, break
off one or both plastic tabs (one for each tape side) on the top of the
cassette tape. If you decide later to record on the tape, seal the
hole with a piece of cellophane tape.

A little bit of slack in your tape can cause scratches on the tape, or worse yet, the tape
could break. If you notice some slack in the tape, use a pencil to tighten it up before you
insert it in the tape deck.
TIP
The use of tapes longer than 120 minutes is not recommended, since characteristic deterioration may occur and
these tapes easily jam in the pinch-roller and the capstan.

• 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 work embodied therein.
• The recording level is automatically set correctly, so it is not affected by the other sound settings. Thus,
during recording you can adjust the sound you are actually listening to without affecting the recording
level.
• If recordings you have made have excessive noise or static, the unit may be too close to a TV. Increase
the distance between the TV and the unit.
• You can only use type I tape for recording.
• DO NOT turn off the unit while playing back or recording a tape. The cassette deck or tapes may be
damaged.
• DO NOT use type II and type IV tapes since the unit is not compatible with such tapes.
• The use of C-120 or longer tape is not recommended, since characteristic deterioration may occur and
this tape easily jams in the pinch rollers and the capstans.

• Digital audio CD
• Recordable digital audio CD (CD-R)
• Rewritable digital audio CD (CD-RW)
When playing a CD-R or CD-RW
You can play back finalized CD-R or CD-RW recorded in music CD format or in MP3 format. (If a CDRW has been recorded in a different format, erase all the data on the CD-RW completely before recording
on it.)
• You can play back CD-R or CD-RW like an audio CD.
• Some CD-R or CD-RW may not be played back on this unit because of their disc characteristics,
damage or stain on them, or if the player lens is dirty.
• The reflection factor of CD-RW is lower than that of other CDs, possibly causing CD-RW to take longer
time to read.
Notes for MP3 files
• The unit can only recognize files with “MP3” or “mp3” as the extensions, which can be in any
combination of upper and lower cases. The file name needs to be up to 20 characters.
• This unit recognizes files and folders on a disc in the following conditions:
– up to 999 MP3 files,
– up to 99 folders (including the root folder),
– up to 8th layers (including the root folder).
Note that the number of the folders or layers mentioned above may increase and can be played back
depending on the contents recorded on the disc.
• It is recommended that you record your material at a 44.1-kHz sampling rate, using the 128-kbps data
transfer rate.
• Some MP3 files or discs may not be played back because of their characteristics or recording
conditions.
• MP3 discs require a longer readout time than normal discs because of the complexity of the folder/file
configuration.
• MP3i and MP3 Pro are not available.

during recording you can adjust the sound you are actually listening to without affecting the recording
level.
• If recordings you have made have excessive noise or static, the unit may be too close to a TV. Increase
the distance between the TV and the unit.
• You can only use type I tape for recording.
• DO NOT turn off the unit while playing back or recording a tape. The cassette deck or tapes may be
damaged.
• DO NOT use type II and type IV tapes since the unit is not compatible with such tapes.

THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE PLAYING CDs
Playable CDs:
Only CDs bearing these marks can be used with this system.
Recordable
ReWritable
This unit has been designed only to play back the following CDs.
• Digital audio CD
• Recordable digital audio CD (CD-R)
• Rewritable digital audio CD (CD-RW)
When playing a CD-R or CD-RW
You can play back finalized CD-R or CD-RW recorded in music CD format or in MP3 format. (If a CDRW has been recorded in a different format, erase all the data on the CD-RW completely before recording
on it.)
• You can play back CD-R or CD-RW like an audio CD.
• Some CD-R or CD-RW may not be played back on this unit because of their disc characteristics,
damage or stain on them, or if the player lens is dirty.
• The reflection factor of CD-RW is lower than that of other CDs, possibly causing CD-RW to take longer
time to read.
Notes for MP3 files
• The unit can only recognize files with “MP3” or “mp3” as the extensions, which can be in any
combination of upper and lower cases. The file name needs to be up to 20 characters.
• This unit recognizes files and folders on a disc in the following conditions:
– up to 999 MP3 files,
– up to 99 folders (including the root folder),
– up to 8th layers (including the root folder).
Note that the number of the folders or layers mentioned above may increase and can be played back
depending on the contents recorded on the disc.
• It is recommended that you record your material at a 44.1-kHz sampling rate, using the 128-kbps data
transfer rate.
• Some MP3 files or discs may not be played back because of their characteristics or recording
conditions.
• MP3 discs require a longer readout time than normal discs because of the complexity of the folder/file
configuration.
• MP3i and MP3 Pro are not available.
• The title, artist name and album name can be displayed as the ID3 TAG (ID3v1/1.1) information.
Caution for DualDisc playback
The Non-DVD side of a “DualDisc” does not comply with the “Compact Disc Digital Audio” standard. Therefore,
the use of Non-DVD side of a DualDisc on this product may not be recommended.
