Using the CONTROL A1!l
control system
This MD deck is compatible with the CONTROL Alll
Control System.
The CONTROL All control system was designed wo
simplify the operation of audio systems composed of
separate Sony components, CONTROL Alll connections
provide a path for thé transmission of control signals that
enable automatic operation and control features usually
associated with integrated systems.
Currently, CONTROL ATI connections between a Sony
MD deck, CD player, amplifier (receiver), and casselte
deck provide automatic function selection and
synchronized recording.
In the future the CONTROL ATT connection will work as
a mulifuncion bus allowing you to control various
functions for cach component.
Note
The CONTROL AT control system is designed 10 mamtan
upward compatibility as the control system is upgraded to handle
new functions, In this case, however, Older components will not
be compatible with the new functions,
CONTROL Ati! and CONTROL Ат
compatibility
The CONTROL Al control system has been updated to
the CONTROL All which is the standard system in
the Sony 300 disc CD changer and other recent Sony
components. Components with CONTROL Al jacks
are compatible with components with CONTROL ATIL
and can be connected to each other. Basically, the
majority of thé functions available with the |
CONTROL Al control system will be available with
the CONTROL Alll control system. However, when
making connecnons berween components with
CONTROL Al jacks and components with
CONTROL ALI jacks. the number of functions that
can be controlled may be limited depending on the
component. For detailed information, refer to the
operating instructions supplied with the componentis).
GE 44 Using the CONTROL A1IT control system
Connecting the CONTROL A1ll control
system
Connect monaural (2P) mimi-plug cables in series to the
CONTROL All jacks on the back of each component.
You can connect up to ten CONTROL ATI compatible
components in any order. However, you can connect only
one of cach type of component (1e, | CD player, | MD
deck, 1 tape deck and | receiver). (¿You may be able to
connect more than one CP player or MD deck, depending
on the model. Refer to the operating instructions supplied
with the respective component for détails.)
Example
Amplifier CD player MD deck Tape deck — Other
(Receiver) component
In the CONTROL All control system, the control signals
flow both ways, so there 1s no distinction of IN and OUT
jacks, If a component has more than one CONTROL All
jack. vou can use either one, or connect different
components to each jack.
About the connecting cable
When a CONTROL All compatible component 15 mol
supplied with a connecting cable, use a commercially
available monaural (2P) mini-plug cable less than 2
meters (6.6 fect) long. with no resistance (such as the
Sony KK-Gö9HG).
Basic functions of the CONTROL AI
control system
Automatic function selection
When you connect CONTROL Alll compatible Sony
components using CONTROL ATT cables (not supplied),
the function selector on the amplifier (or receiver)
automatically switches to the correct inpul when you press
the play button on one of the connected components.
(For example, when vou press [= (play button) on the
MD deck while the CD is playing, the function selector on
the amplifier switches from CD to MD)
Notes
* This function works only when the components arc connected
to the amplifier (or receiver) inputs according Lo the names on
the function buttons. Certain receivers allow vou to switch the
names of the function buttons. In this case, refer to the
operating instructions supplied with ihe receiver,
* When recording. do not play any components other than the

On the MiniDisc cartridge
* Do not open the shutter to expose the MD.
* Do not place the cartndge where it will be subject wo
extremes of sunlight, temperature, moisture or dust,
On cleaning
Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with a soft cloth
slightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not
use any ype of abrasive pad, scouring powder or solvent
such as alcohol or benzine.
If vou have any questions or problems concerning your

Handling MDs
The MD 1s enclosed in a cartridge to protect the disc from
debris or fingerprints and to make it easy to handle.
However, the presence of debris or a warped cartridge
may inhibit the disc from operating properly. To ensure
that you can always listen to the highest quality music,
follow the precautions below:
* Do not touch the internal disc directly. Forcing the
shutter open may damage the internal disc.
* Be sure to stick the labels supplied with the MD to the
appropriate positions. The shape of the labels may vary
depending on the MD brand.

a—r— Shuller
Where to keep the MDs
Do not place the canndge where it may be exposed to
direct sunhght or extremely high heat and humidity.
Regular maintenance
Wipe dust and debris from the surface of the cartridge
with a dry cloth.
System limitations
The recording system in your deck is radically different
trom those used in cassette and DAT decks and is
characterized by the limitations described below. Note,
however, that these limitations are due to the inherent
nature of the MD recording system itself and nat to
mechanical causes,
“Disc Full” appears in the display even before
the MD has reached the maximum recording
time
When 255 tracks have been recorded to the MD,
“Disc Full” appears regardless of the total recorded time.
More than 255 tracks cannot be recorded to the MD. To
continue recording, erase unnecessary tracks or use
another recordable MD.
“Disc Full" appears before the maximum
number of tracks is reached
Fluctuations in emphasis within tracks are sometimes
interpreted as track intervals, incrementing the track count
and causing “Disc Full” to appear.
The remaining recording time does not
increase aven after erasing numerous short
tracks
Tracks under 12 seconds® in length are not counted and so
erasing them may not lead to an increase in thé recording
time.
* During stereo recording
a MONO or ir? mode: about 24 seconds
fn LP mode: about 48 seconds
The total recorded time and the remaining
recordable time on the MD may not total the
maximum recording time
Recording 15 done in minimum units of two seconds*
each, no matter how short the material is. The contents
recorded may thus be shorter than the maximum recording
capacity. Disc space may also be further reduced by
scratches.
* fluring stereo recording,
he MONO or LP? mode: abon 4 seconds
Im LPS mode: abonar E seconds
Limitations when recording over an existing
track
* The correct remaining recordable time may not be
displayed.
* You may find ii impossible to record over a track if that
track has been recorded over several times already. If
this happens, erase the track (see page 31).
* The remaining recordable time may be shortened out of
proportion to the total recorded time.
+ Recording over a track to eliminate noise is not
recommended since this may shorten the duration of the
(rack.
« You may find it impossible to name a track while
recording over an existing track,
Tracks created through editing may exhibit
sound dropout as you are searching for a point
while monitoring the sound.
Some tracks cannot be combined with others
Tracks may not be combined if they have been edited.
Track numbers are not marked correctly
Incorrect assignment or marking of track numbers may
result when CD tracks are divided into several smaller
tracks during digital recording. Also, when the Automatic
Track Marking 1s activated during recording, track
numbers may not be marked as in the original, depending
on the program source.
“TOC Reading” appears for a long time
If the inserted recordable MD is brand new, “TOC
Reading” appears in the display longer than for MDs that
have already been used.

Guide to the Serial Copy Management
System
Digital audio components, such as CDs, MDs, and DATS,
make it casy to produce high-quality copies of music by
processing music as a digital signal.
To protect copyrighted music sources, this deck uses the
Serial Copy Management System, which 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.
Examples are as follows:
* You can make a copy of a commercially avilable
digital sound program (for example, a CD or MD), but
vou cannot make a second copy from the first-
generation copy.
* You can make a copy of a digital signal from a digitally
recorded analog sound program (for example. an analog
record or a music cassette tape) or from a digital
satellite broadcast program, but you cannot make a
second copy from the first-generation copy.
Il A first-generation copy means the first recording of a digital
audio source Mroueit the decks digital inpul connector For
Example, von recora fram a CL plaver connected ro the
DIGITAL IN connector, Mat copy is a firt generation copy.
Note
The restrictions of the Serial Copy Management System do mot
apply when you make a recording through the analog-1o-analog
connections,
