The MD Deck – Recording

Before you start recording

MDs (Mini Disc) let you digitally record and play music with high quality sound comparable with the sound of CDs. Another feature of MDs is track marking. The track marking feature lets you quickly locate a specific point or easily edit the recorded tracks. However, depending on the source you record, the recording method varies.

Also, the way the track numbers are recorded differs depending on the source.

When the source you record from is:

• This system’s CD player

– The digital signal from the CD is recorded as it is (digital recording)*.

– Track numbers are automatically marked as on the original CD.

• This unit’s tuner and other analogue components (e.g., the optional tape deck TC-TX313)

– The analogue signal is converted to a digital signal and recorded (analogue recording).**

– A track number is marked at the beginning of a recording, but when you turn on the

Level Sync function (see page 33), track numbers are automatically marked in sync with the level of the input signal.

* For details on the limitations for digital recording, see page 52.

**This signal is converted because these systems do not use digital signals.

Note on MD track numbers

On an MD, the track number (track sequence), track start and end point information, etc., are recorded in the TOC* area independent of the sound information. You can edit recorded tracks quickly by modifying the TOC information.

* TOC: Table Of Contents.

After recording

/

Press MD § to remove the MD or press POWER to turn off the system power.

The MD recording is complete only after the recording information is entered to

Note

The MD recording is complete only after all the recording information is entered to TOC at which point TOC stops flashing and goes out. Be careful disconnect the mains lead or move the deck before this point. Before disconnecting the mains lead, do the following:

– Remove the MD.

– Press POWER, to turn off the system.

Protecting a recorded MD

• To protect a recorded MD, slide the tab on the side of the MD to open the slot.

Additional Information

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 system is not disconnected from the mains as long as it is connected to the wall outlet, even if the system itself has been turned off.

• Unplug the system from the wall outlet if it is not to be used for an extended period of time.

To disconnect the 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.

• The mains lead must be changed only at a qualified service shop.

• When you connect the mains lead to mains, even through the power is off, the system begins charging for remote and timer functions.

Therefore the surface of this unit become warm, this is normal.

On placement

• Make sure the system fan is on during use.

Place the system in a location with adequate air circuration, and do not place a any on the system.

• Place the system in a location with adequate ventilation to prevent heat build up.

• 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.

On installing

When you move the system, remove the CD or MD.

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 or the MD deck. Should this occur, the system will not operate properly. Remove the CD or MD and leave the system turned on for about an hour until the moisture evaporates.

• When you move the system, take out any discs.

If you have any questions or problems concerning your system, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.

On the speaker system

This speaker system is not magnetically shielded and the picture on TV sets may becomes 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. Also, be sure not to place objects in which magnets are attached or used near the TV set, such as audio racks, TV stands and toys. These may cause magnetic distortion to the picture due to their interaction with the system.

Notes on MDs

• Do not open the shutter to expose the MD. Close the shutter immediately if the shutter opens.

Shutter

• Wipe the disc cartridge with a dry cloth to remove dirt.

• Do not expose the MD to direct sunlight or heat sources such as hot air ducts, nor leave it in a car parked in direct sunlight.

Notes on CDs

• Before playing, clean the CD with a cleaning cloth.

Wipe the CD from the center out.

• Do not use a CD with tape, seals, or paste on it as this may damage the player.

• Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner, commercially available cleaners, or antistatic spray intended for vinyl LPs.

•Do not expose the CD to direct sunlight or heat sources such as hot air ducts, nor leave it in a car parked in direct sunlight.

Cleaning the cabinet

Use a soft cloth slightly moistened with mild detergent solution.

System limitations of MDs

The recording system in your MD deck has the limitations described below.

Note, however, that these limitations are due to the inherent nature of the MD recording system itself, not to mechanical causes.

“Disc Full” lights up before the

MD has reached the maximum recording time (60 or 74 minutes)

When 255 tracks have been recorded on the MD,

“Disc Full” lights up regardless of the total recorded time. More than 255 tracks cannot be recorded on the MD. To continue recording, erase unnecessary tracks or use another recordable MD.

“Disc Full” lights up before the maximum number of tracks (255) is reached

Fluctuations in emphasis within tracks are sometimes interpreted as track intervals, increasing the track count and causing “Disc Full” to light up.

The remaining recording time does not increase even after erasing numerous short tracks

Tracks shorter than 12 seconds are not counted, so erasing them may not increase the recording time.

Some tracks cannot be combined with others

Track combination may become impossible when tracks are shorter than 12 seconds.

The total recorded time and the remaining time on the MD do not add up to the maximum recording time (60 or 74 minutes)

Recording is done in minimum units of 2 seconds each, no matter how short the material. The recorded contents may be shorter than the maximum recording capacity. Disc space may also be reduced by scratches.

The sound may drop-out while searching the edited tracks

Tracks created through editing may exhibit sound dropout during searching because high-speed playback requires time to search for the position on the disc when the tracks are not in order.

Track numbers cannot be marked

When “LEVEL-SYNC” (page 33) lights up in the display window during analogue recording, the track numbers may not be marked at the beginning of the track:

• if the input signal is below a certain fixed level for less than two seconds between tracks.

• if the input signal is below a certain fixed level for more than two seconds in the middle of the track.

Guide to the Serial Copy

Management System

Digital audio components, such as CDs, MDs, and

DATs let you copy music easily with high quality by prosessing music as a digital signal.

To protect the copyrighted music programmes, this system uses the Serial Copy Management System that allows you to make only a single copy of a digitally recorded source through digital-to-digital connections.

You can make only a first generation copy* through a digital-to-digital connection.

For example:

1 You can make a copy of a commercially available digital sound programme (for example, a CD or

MD), but you cannot make a second copy from the first-generation copy.

2 You can make a copy of a digital signal from a digitally recorded analog sound programme (for example, an analog record or a music cassette tape) or from a digital satellite broadcast programme, but you cannot make a second copy.

* A first-generation copy means a digital recording of a digital signal made on digital audio equipment. For example, if you record from this system’s CD player to the MD deck, you make a first-generation copy.

Note

This copy management system doesn’t apply when you make a recording through analog-to-analog connections.

Self-diagnosis

Display
