About the CONTROL A11 Control System
This MD deck is compatible with the CONTROL A1ll
Control System.
The CONTROL ATI Control System was designed to
simplify the operation of audio systems composed of
separate Sony components. CONTROL All connections
provide a path for the transmission of control signals
which enable automatic operation and control features
usually associated with integrated systems.
Currently, CONTROL ATII connections between a Sony
MD deck, CD player, amplifier (receiver), and cassette
deck provide automatic function selection and
synchronized recording.
In the future the CONTROL A1ll connection will work as
a multifunction bus allowing you to control various
functions for each component.
Note
The CONTROL A1H Control System is designed to maintain
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.
6
CONTROL A1l and CONTROL A1 compatibility
The CONTROL Al control system has been updated
to the CONTROL Al which is the standard system
in the SONY 300 disc CD changer and other recent
Sonv components. Components with CONTROL AT
jacks are compatible with components with
CONTROL A1ll, and can be connected to each other.
Basically, the majority of the functions available with
the CONTROL AI control system will be available
with the CONTROL AI control system.
However, when making connections between
components with CONTROL AT jacks and
components with CONTROL A jacks, the number
of functions that can be controlled mav be limited
depending on the component. For detailed
information, refer to the operating instructions
supplied with the component(s).
Connecting the CONTROL A1I Control System
Connect monaural (2P) mini-plug cables in series to the
CONTROL Alll'jacks on the back of each component. You
can connect up to ten CONTROL AT compatible
components in any order. However, you can connect only
one of each type of component (i.e., 1 CD player, 1 MD
deck, 1 tape deck and 1 receiver).
(You may be able to connect more than one CD player or
MD deck, depending on the model. Refer to the operating
instructions supplied with the respective component for
details.)

On CONTROL A1 jacks and connections
tis possible to make connections between CONTROL AI
ind CONTROL. Alll jacks. For details regarding
articular connections or setup options, refer to the
yperating instructions supplied with component(s).
About the connecting cable
some CONTROL AIN compatible components are
supplied with a connecting cable as an accessory. In this
‘ase, use the connecting cable for your connection.
Nhen using a commercially available cable, use a
nonaural (2P) mini-piug cable less than 2 meters long,
with no resistance (like the Sony RK-G69HG).
Basic Functions of the CONTROL A1I
Control System
Automatic function selection
When vou connect CONTROL A1ll compatible Sony
components using CONTROL ATI cables (not supplied),
the function selector on the amplifier (or receiver)
poyezs Бицзео
automatically switches to the correct input when you
press the play button on one of the connected
components.
(If vou press = (play button) on the MD deck while the
CD 1s plaving, the tunction selector on the amplifier
switches from CD to MD.)
Notes
* This function only works when the components are connected
to the amplitier (or receiver) inputs according to the names on
the function buttons. Certain receivers allow you to switch the
names of the function buttons. In this case, refer to the
operating instructions supplied with the receiver.
* When recording, do not play any components other than the
recording source. It will cause the automatic function selection
to operate.
Synchronized recording
This function lets vou conduct synchronized recording
between the MD deck and selected source component.
1 Set the source selector on the amplifier (or
receiver) to the source component.
2 Set the source component to pause mode (make
sure both the => and Il indicators light together).
Ww
Set the deck to recording pause mode.
4 Press HI on the deck.
The source component is released from the pause
mode, and recording begins shortly thereafter.
When playback ends from the source component,
recording stops.
Notes
e Do not set more than one component to the pause mode.
* This MD deck is equipped with a special synchronized
recording function that uses the CONTROL A1H Control
System (see “Making a CD Svnchro-recording from a Sony CD
plaver connected with a control AUI cable” on page 22).

Recording on
MDs
This chapter explains the various
ways to record to an MD, as well as
how to mark track numbers and
perform synchro-recording with other
components.

Notes on Recording
About indications which appear while
recording
When “Protected” and “C11” alternate in the
display
The record-protect slot is open and the MD ts record-
protected. To record on the MD, slide the tab to close the
stot. For details, see “To prevent accidental erasure of the
recorded material” on page 16.
When “Din Unlock” and “C71” alternate in the
display
* The digital component selected with the INPUT selector
Is not connected correctly. Check the connection.
* [he selected digital component is not turned on. Turn
on the component.
When “Cannot Copy” appears in the display
The MD deck uses the Serial Copy Management System.
MDs recorded through the digital input connector can't be
copied to other MDs or DAT tapes through the digital
output connector. For details, see “Guide to the Serial
Copy Management System” on page 15.
When “TRACK” flashes in the display
The MD deck is recording over existing track(s) (see
“Recording on an MD” on page 15). The indication stops
tlashing when the deck reaches the end of the recorded
portion.
About indications which appear after
recording
When “TOC” lights up in the display
Recording has finished but the TOC (Table of Contents)
on the MD has not been updated to reflect the recording
results. The recording will be lost if you disconnect the
AC power cord while the indication is on. The TOC will
be updated only when vou eject the MD or turn off the
MD deck.
When “TOC Writing” flashes in the display
The deck 1s updating the TOC. Do not disconnect the AC
power cord or move the deck while the indication tlashes.
Automatic conversion of digital sampling
rates during recording
A built-in sampling rate converter automatically converts
the sampling frequency of various digital sources to the
44.1 kHz sampling rate of the MD deck. This allows vou
to monitor and record sources such as 32- or 45-kHz DAT
tape or satellite broadcasts, as well as the CDs and MDs.
Guide to the Serial Copy Management
System
Digital audio components, such as CDs, MDs, and DATs
make it easy 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 vou 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 given as follows:
* You can make a copy of a commercially available digital
sound program (for example, a CD or MD), but vou
can't 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 vou can't make a
second copy from the first-generation copy.
+ À first-generation copy means the first recording of a digital atadio
source through the decks digital input connecter. For example, if vet
record front a CD player connected to the DIGITAL OPTI or OPT 2
connector, that copy is a first-generation copy.
Note
The restrictions of the Serial Copy Management Svstem don't
apply when vou make a recording through the analog-to-analog
connections.

Marking Track Numbers While Recording
(Track Marking)
Y Additional information on Automatic Track Marking
* When recording trom a CD plaver or MD deck connected to the
DIGITAL IN connector, the entire material may be recorded as
a single track in the following cases:
— When vou consecutively record the same track two or more
times using single-track repeat play.
— When vou consecutively record two or more tracks with the
same track number but from different CDs or MDs.
— When vou record tracks from certain CD or multi-disc
players.
Also, it the source 15 an MD, a track number mav not be
marked for tracks less than four seconds long.
When recording from a component connected to the LINE
(ANALOG) EN jacks with “T.Mark Ott” selected or when
recording from a DAT deck or DBS tuner connected to the
DIGITAL IN connector, the entire material max be recorded as
a single track.
When recording from a DAT deck or DBS tuner connected to
the DIGITAL IN connector, the deck will mark a track number
whenever the sampling frequency of the input signal changes,
regardless of the track marking parameter setting (“T. Mark
Lsyn” or “T.Mark Off”).
e You can mark track numbers even after recording has
finished
See “Dividing Tracks” on page 33.
Note
If you turn off the deck or disconnect the AC power cord, the
deck will store the last settings (“T.Mark Lsvn” or “T.Mark Oft”
and the trigger level) and recall them the next time vou turn on
the deck.

Starting Recording With Six
Seconds of Prestored Audio
Data (Time Machine Recording)
Whenever the deck is in recording pause, the deck's
butter memory continuously stores the latest six seconds
worth of audio data. When vou press AMS (or TREO),
the recording then starts with the data in the buffer
memorv. Time Machine Recording thus allows you to
avoid missing the beginning of material recorded live
from an FM or satellite broadcast.

Additional
Information
This chapter provides additional
information that will help you
understand and maintain your MD
deck system.
Precautions
On safety
* Should anv solid object or liquid tall into the cabinet,
unplug the deck and have it checked by qualitied
personnel before operating it anv further.
* The use of optical instruments with this product will
Increase eve hazard.
On power sources
e Before operating the deck, check that the operating
voltage of the deck is identical with vour local power
supply. The operating voltage is indicated on the
nameplate at the rear ot the deck.
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.
If vou are not going to use the deck for a long time, be
sure to disconnect the deck from the wall outlet. To
disconnect the AC power cord, grasp the plug itself;
never pull the cord.
* AC power cord must be changed only at the qualified
service shop.
On condensation in the deck
If the deck is brought directly from a cold to a warm
location, or is placed in a very damp room, moisture may
condense on the lenses inside the deck. Should this occur,
the deck mav not operate properly. In this case, remove
the MD and leave the deck turned on for several hours
until the moisture evaporates.
On the MiniDisc cartridge
* Do not open the shutter to expose the MD.
* Do not place the cartridge where it will be subject to
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 anv type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or solvent
such as alcohol or benzine.
If vou have any questions or problems concerning your
deck, please consult vour nearest Sony dealer.

Handling MDs
The MD is enclosed in a cartridge to protect the disc from
debris or tingerprints and to make it casv to handle.
However, the presence of debris or a warped cartridge
may inhibit the disc from operating properly. To assure
that you can alwavs listen to the highest quality music,
follow the precautions below:
* Do not touch the internal disc directly. Forcing the
shutter open mav damage the internal disc.
* Be sure to stick the labels supplied with the MD to the
appropriate positions. The shape ot the labels mav vary
depending on the MD brand.
Proper location Shutter
of the labels
Where to keep the MDs
Do not place the cartridge where 1t mav be exposed to
direct sunlight or extremely high heat and humidity.
Regular maintenance
Wipe dust and debris from the surtace of the cartridge
with a dry cloth.
System Limitations
The recording system in vour deck is radicallv different
from 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 svstem itself and not 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 on the MD,
“Disc Full” appears regardless of the total recorded time.
More than 255 tracks can’t be recorded on the MD. To
continue recording, erase unnecessary tracks or use
another recordable MD.
50v
“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
even after erasing numerous short tracks
Tracks under 12 seconds in length are not counted and so
erasing them mav not lead to an increase in the recording
time.
The total recorded time and the remaining
recordable time on the MD may not total the
maximum recording time
Recording is done in minimum units of 2 seconds cach, no
matter how short the material. The contents recorded
mav thus be shorter than the maximum recording
capacitv. Disc space may also be further reduced by
scratches.
Limitations when recording over an existing
track
e [he correct remaining recordable time may not be
displaved.
You may find it 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 track.
* 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're searching for a point
while monitoring the sound.
Some tracks can't 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 is 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.
The correct recorded/playing time may not be
displayed during playback of MDs recorded in
monaural mode.
Troubleshooting
If you experience any of the following difficulties while
using the deck, use this troubleshooting guide to help vou
remedy the problem. Should any problem persist, consult
your nearest Sony dealer.
