Using SonicStage, about 30 audio CDs* can be recorded on one CD-R or CD-RW. The following is a quick overview of how you listen to music on your ATRAC CD. Install SonicStage on your computer. SonicStage is software that takes music downloaded from audio CDs on your computer and creates original CDs. It can be installed from the supplied CD-ROM. ATRAC CD Create an ATRAC CD. After selecting your favorite songs from music stored on your computer, record them on a CD-R/CD-RW using SonicStage. Audio CDs, MP3 ﬁles Listen to them with this CD player. You can take lots of songs wherever you go on your original CD. Please see the supplied “Installation/Operating Guide” for how to install SonicStage and how to create ATRAC CDs. * When the total playing time of one CD (album) is estimated at 60 minutes and you are recording on a 700 MB CD-R/CD-RW at 48 kbps in ATRAC3plus format. 4 Which discs can you play on this CD player? Audio CDs: CD-DA format CDs CD-DA (Compact Disc Digital Audio) is a recording standard used for Audio CDs. ATRAC CDs: CD-R/CD-RW on which audio data compressed in the ATRAC3plus format has been recorded by using SonicStage* ATRAC3plus (Adaptive Transform Acoustic Coding3plus) is audio compression technology that satisﬁes the demand for high sound quality and high compression rates. ATRAC3plus can compress audio ﬁles to about 1/20 of their original size at 64 kbps. Bit rates and sampling frequencies this CD player can play are: Bit rates Sampling frequencies ATRAC3 66/105/132 kbps 44.1 kHz ATRAC3plus 48/64/256 kbps 44.1 kHz Up to 62 characters can be displayed on this CD player. MP3 CDs: CD-R/CD-RW on which audio data compressed in the MP3 format has been recorded by using a software other than SonicStage* Bit rates and sampling frequencies this CD player can play are shown below. Variable Bit Rate (VBR) ﬁles can also be played. Bit rates Sampling frequencies MPEG-1 Layer3 32 - 320 kbps 32/44.1/48 kHz MPEG-2 Layer3 8 - 160 kbps 16/22.05/23 kHz MPEG-2.5 Layer3 8 - 160 kbps 8/11.025/12 kHz This CD player conforms to Version 1.0/1.1/2.2/2.3/2.4 of the ID3 tag format. ID3 tag is a format for adding certain information (track name, album name, artist name, etc.) to MP3 ﬁles. Up to 64 characters of ID3 tag information can be displayed on this CD player. CD-Extra and Mix-Mode CDs: CD-R/CD-RW on which CD-DA format data and CD-ROM format data are recorded together.* If you cannot play your CD, change the “CD-EXTRA” setting in the OPTION menu ( page 32). Then you may play your CD. An ATRAC CD on which audio data compressed in the MP3 format has been recorded using software other than SonicStage can also be played. With SonicStage, you cannot create a CD on which mixed format audio data is recorded. * Only ISO 9660 Level 1/2 and Joliet extension format discs can be played. Continued 5 Music discs encoded with copyright protection technologies This product is designed to play back 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. Note on DualDiscs A DualDisc is a two sided disc product which mates DVD recorded material on one side with digital audio material on the other side. However, since the audio material side does not conform to the Compact Disc (CD) standard, playback on this product is not guaranteed. Difference in File structures of ATRAC CDs and MP3 CDs ATRAC CDs and MP3 CDs consist of "ﬁles" and "groups." A "ﬁle" is equivalent to a "track" of an audio CD. A "group" is a bundle of ﬁles and is equivalent to an "album." For MP3 CDs, this CD player recognizes an MP3 folder as a "group" so that ATRAC CDs and MP3 CDs can be operated in the same way. The usable number of groups and ﬁles • Maximum number of groups: 256 • Maximum number of ﬁles: 999 Playing order of ATRAC CDs and MP3 CDs For ATRAC CDs, ﬁles are played in the order selected in SonicStage. For MP3 CDs, the playing order may differ depending on the method used to record MP3 ﬁles on the disc. A "play list" which contains an MP3 ﬁle playing order can also be played. In the following example, ﬁles are played in order of to . 6 MP3 Group File (Maximum directory levels: 8) Notes • If ATRAC3plus ﬁles and MP3 ﬁles are recorded on the same CD, this CD player plays the ATRAC3plus ﬁles ﬁrst. • The playback capability of this CD player may vary depending on the quality of the disc and the condition of the recording device. • Acceptable characters are A to Z, a to z, 0 to 9, and _ (underscore). • On a disc that has ATRAC3plus/MP3 ﬁles, do not save ﬁles in other formats and do not make unnecessary folders. About ATRAC CDs • CD-Rs/CD-RWs recorded in the ATRAC3plus format cannot be played on your computer. About MP3 CDs • Be sure to add the ﬁle extension "mp3" to the ﬁle name. However, if you add the extension "mp3" to a ﬁle other than an MP3 ﬁle, the player will not be able to recognize the ﬁle properly. • To compress a source in an MP3 ﬁle, we recommend setting the compression parameters to "44.1 kHz," "128 kbps," and "Constant Bit Rate." • To record up to the maximum capacity, set the writing software to "halting of writing." • To record up to the maximum capacity at one time on media that has nothing recorded on it, set the writing software to "Disc at Once." Precautions On safety • Should any solid objects or liquid fall into the CD player, unplug it and have it checked by qualiﬁed personnel before operating it any further. • Do not put any foreign objects in the DC IN 3 V (external power input) jack. On the CD player • Keep the lens on the CD player clean and do not touch it. If you do so, the lens may be damaged and the CD player will not operate properly. • Do not put any heavy object on top of the CD player. The CD player and the CD may be damaged. • Do not leave the CD player in a location near heat sources, or in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust or sand, moisture, rain, mechanical shock, unleveled surface, or in a car with its windows closed. • If the CD player causes interference to the radio or television reception, turn off the CD player or move it away from the radio or television. • Discs with non-standard shapes (e.g., heart, square, star) cannot be played on this CD player. Attempting to do so may damage the CD player. Do not use such discs. On headphones/earphones Road safety Do not use headphones/earphones while driving, cycling, or operating any motorized vehicle. It may create a trafﬁc hazard and is illegal in some areas. It can also be potentially dangerous to play your headsets at high volume while walking, especially at pedestrian crossings. You should exercise extreme caution or discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations. Preventing hearing damage Avoid using headphones/earphones at high volume. Hearing experts advise against continuous, loud and extended play. If you experience a ringing in your ears, reduce volume or discontinue use. Consideration for others Keep the volume at a moderate level. This will allow you to hear outside sounds and to be considerate to the people around you. On handling CDs • To keep the CD clean, handle it by its edge. Do not touch the surface. • Do not stick paper or tape onto the CD. • Do not expose the CD to direct sunlight or heat sources such as hot air ducts. Do not leave the CD in a car parked under direct sunlight. 7 Getting Started Checking the Supplied Accessories • AC power adaptor (AC-ES3010K2) • Charging stand • External battery case with cover • Rechargeable battery • Battery carrying case • Carrying pouch • Earphones • Remote control (Remote) (For this CD player only) • CD-ROM (SonicStage) Do not play this CD-ROM on an audio CD player including this player. • Operating instructions (This book) • Installation/Operating Guide • AC plug adaptor (Supplied with tourist model) Note Use only the supplied remote.
