Discs that this system cannot
play
• CD-ROMs
• CD-Rs/CD-RWs other than those recorded in
the following formats:
– music CD format
– MP3 format that conforms to ISO96601)
Level 1/Level 2, Joliet or Multi Session2)
• A disc that has a non-standard shape (e.g.,
card, heart).
• A disc with paper or stickers on it.
• A disc that has the adhesive, cellophane tape,
or a sticker still left on it.
• Data part of CD-Extras3)
• Data track of Mixed CDs4)
1)
ISO9660 Format
The most common international standard for the
logical format of files and folders on a CD-ROM.
There are several specification levels. In Level 1,
file names must be in the 8.3 format (no more than
eight characters in the name, no more than three
characters in the extension “.MP3”) and in capital
letters. Folder names can be no longer than eight
characters. There can be no more than eight nested
folder levels. Level 2 specifications allow file
names and folder names up to 31 characters long.
Each folder can have up to 8 trees.
For Joliet in the expansion format (file and folder
names can have up to 64 characters) make sure of
the contents of the writing software, etc.
2)
Multi Session
This is a recording method that enables adding of
data using the Track-At-Once method.
Conventional CDs begin at a CD control area called
the Lead-in and end at an area called Lead-out. A
Multi Session CD is a CD having multiple sessions,
with each segment from Lead-in to Lead-out
regarded as a single session.
3)
CD-Extra: This format records audio (audio CD
data) on the tracks in session 1 and data on the tracks
in session 2.
4)
Mixed CD: This format records data on the first
track and audio (audio CD data) on the second and
subsequent tracks of a session.

Notes on CD-R and CD-RW
• Some CD-Rs or CD-RWs cannot be played
on this system depending upon the recording
quality or physical condition of the disc, or
the characteristics of the recording device.
Furthermore, the disc will not play if it has not
been correctly finalized. For more
information, see the operating instructions for
the recording device.
• Discs recorded on CD-R/CD-RW drives may
not be played back because of scratches, dirt,
recording condition or the driver’s
characteristics.
• CD-R and CD-RW discs recorded in multisession that have not ended by “closing the
session” are not supported.
• The system may be unable to play MP3
format files that do not have the “.MP3”
extension.
• Attempting to play non-MP3 format files that
have the “.MP3” extension may result in noise
or malfunction.
• With formats other than ISO9660 level 1 and
2, folder names or file names may not be
displayed correctly.
• The following discs take a longer time to start
playback.
– a disc recorded with complicated tree
structure.
– a disc recorded in Multi Session.
– a disc to which data can be added (nonfinalized disc).
Music discs encoded with
copyright protection
technologies
This product is designed to playback discs that
conform to the Compact Disc (CD) standard.
Recently, various music discs encoded with
copyright protection technologies are marketed
by some record companies. Please be aware that
among those discs, there are some that do not
conform to the CD standard and may not be
playable by this product.
Cautions when playing a disc
that is recorded in Multi
Session
• If the disc begins with a CD-DA session, it is
recognized as a CD-DA (audio) disc, and
playback continues until an MP3 session is
encountered.
• If the disc begins with an MP3 session, it is
recognized as an MP3 disc, and playback
continues until a CD-DA (audio) session is
encountered.
• The playback range of an MP3 disc is
determined by the tree structure of files
produced by analyzing of the disc.
• A disc with a mixed CD format will be
recognized as a CD-DA (audio) disc.

Precautions
On operating voltage
Before operating the system, check that the operating
voltage of your system is identical with the voltage of
your local power supply.
On safety
• The unit is not disconnected from the AC power
source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall
outlet, even if the unit itself has been turned off.
• Unplug the system from the wall outlet (mains) if it
is not to be used for an extended period of time. To
disconnect the power cord (mains lead), pull it out by
the plug. Never pull the cord itself.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the system,
unplug the system and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it any further.
• AC power cord must be changed only at the qualified
service shop.
On placement
On heat buildup
• Although the system heats up during operation, this
is not a malfunction.
• Place the system in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the system.
• If you continuously use this system at a high volume,
the cabinet temperature of the top, side and bottom
rises considerably. To avoid burning yourself, do not
touch the cabinet.
• To prevent a malfunction, do not cover the
ventilation hole.
On operation
• If the system is brought directly from a cold to a
warm location, or is placed in a very damp room,
moisture may condense on the lens inside the CD
player. Should this occur, the system will not operate
properly. Remove the disc and leave the system
turned on for about an hour until the moisture
evaporates.
• When you move the system, take out any disc.
If you have any questions or problems concerning your
system, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.
Notes on discs
• Before playing, clean the disc with a cleaning cloth.
Wipe the disc from the center out.
• Do not use solvents such as benzene, thinner,
commercially available cleaners or anti-static spray
intended for vinyl LPs.
• Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or heat
sources such as hot air ducts, nor leave it in a car
parked in direct sunlight.
• Do not use discs encircled with a protection ring.
This may cause a malfunction to the system.
• When using discs that have glue or similar tacky
substance on the label side of the disc or that used a
special ink when the label was printed, there is a
chance that the disc or label may become attached to
parts inside this unit. When this occurs, it may not be
possible to remove the disc, and may also cause this
unit to malfunction. Be sure to check that the label
side of the disc is not sticky before using.
The following types of disc should not be used:
– Rental or used discs with attached seals where the
glue extends beyond the seal. The perimeter of the
seal on the disc is tacky.
– Discs that have labels printed using a special ink
that feels tacky when touched.
• Discs with non-standard shapes (e.g., heart, square,
star) cannot be played on this unit. Attempting to do
so may damage the unit. Do not use such discs.
Additional Information
• Do not place the system in an inclined position.
• Do not place the system in locations where it is;
– Extremely hot or cold
– Dusty or dirty
– Very humid
– Subject to vibrations
– Subject to direct sunlight.
• Use caution when placing the unit or speakers on
surfaces that have been specially treated (with wax,
oil, polish, etc.) as staining or discoloration of the
surface may result.
This speaker system is not magnetically shielded and
the picture on TV sets may become magnetically
distorted. In such a case, turn off the power of the TV
set once, and after 15 to 30 minutes turn it on again.
If there seems to be no improvement, locate the
speaker system further away from the TV set.
Cleaning the cabinet
Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with a soft cloth
slightly moistened with mild detergent solution. Do not
use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or
solvent such as thinner, benzine or alcohol.

deck
Take up any slack in the tape. Otherwise, the tape may
get entangled in the parts of the tape deck and become
damaged.
When using a tape longer than
90 minutes
The tape is very elastic. Do not change the tape
operations such as play, stop, and fast-winding
frequently. The tape may get entangled in the tape
deck.
Cleaning the tape heads
Clean the tape heads after every 10 hours of use.
Be sure to clean the tape heads before you start an
important recording or after playing an old tape.
Use a separately sold dry-type or wet-type cleaning
cassette. For details, refer to the instructions of the
cleaning cassette.
Demagnetizing the tape heads
Demagnetize the tape heads and the metal parts that
have contact with the tape after every 20 to 30 hours of
use with a separately sold demagnetizing cassette. For
details, refer to the instructions of the demagnetizing
cassette.
