Recording
on MDs
When recording digital signals from a CD
Before Recording
MD allows you to digitally record and play
back music with a sound quality similar to
CD. In addition, because MDs are opticalmagnetic discs, they are free from the
problems of stretching or becoming tangled
like ordinary cassette tapes. The recording
method is also different from that of
cassette tapes, because it is possible to write
track numbers and edit recordings.
Before Recording
Recording a CD
Recording from the Radio
Recording on an MD
Manually
Marking Track Numbers
While Recording
The MD deck automatically marks track
numbers in the same sequence as the
original CD.
However, if recording is paused, the
portion recorded up to that point is counted
as one track. When recording is started
again, the track number increases by one.
track

number
A
sound source
track
number
This unit uses one of the following
recording methods, depending on the
sound source to be recorded and how the
unit is connected to the sound source.
Digital recording
When recording from this unit's CD player,
the MD deck records the digital signal in
the form of a digital signal.
Analog recording
In the cases listed below, the MD deck
converts an analog signal into a digital
signal and records the digital signal.
•When recording from this unit's Radio
•When recording from audio equipment
connected to this unit's TAPE jacks
MD recording and the Serial Copy
Management System
Since the MD deck uses the SCMS (Serial
Copy Management System), MDs recorded
from a CD played back from this unit's CD
player cannot be used to make digital
copies onto other MDs.
MD track numbers (TOC)
In an MD, the track number (track
sequence) and track start and end point
information, etc., is recorded in an area
called the “Table of Contents” (TOC) that is
managed apart from the music. As a result,
not only can you instantaneously find the
start of a track, but you can quickly edit
recorded tracks simply by changing the
TOC information.
For example, with a cassette tape, erasing a
track entails re-recording the track with no
sound from the start. With an MD, you can
delete a track simply by writing over the
information in the TOC.

If a single track from the same CD is
recorded repeatedly, the track or tracks are
recorded as a single, continuous track with
a single track number.
You can also mark track numbers manually
during recording (see “Marking Track
Numbers Manually (track marking
function)”).
If you select “LEVEL SYNC” during analog
recording
The track number is written in sync with
the level of the input signal from the sound
source. In other words, if the input signal
from the sound source is continuously at or
below a certain fixed level for two seconds
or more, a track number is written the next
time the input signal exceeds that level.

Precautions
If you have any questions or problems
concerning your stereo system, please
consult your nearest Sony dealer.
On safety
• The use of optical instruments with this
product will increase eye hazard.
• 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 AC power
outlet if it is not to be used for an
extended period of time. To disconnect
the AC power cord, pull it out by the
plug. Never pull the cord itself.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into
a component, unplug the stereo system
and have the component checked by
qualified personnel before operating it
any further.
• AC power cord must be changed only at
the qualified service shop.
Troubleshooting Guide
Specifications
Index to Parts and Controls
Index
On installation
Place the stereo system in a location with
adequate ventilation to prevent heat buildup in the stereo system.
On condensation in the CD player
and the MD deck component
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 CD player or the MD
deck will not operate. Remove the CD or
the MD and leave the system turned on for
about an hour until the moisture
evaporates.
Notes on handling MDs
Because the MD itself is housed in a
cartridge, you can handle it normally
without being concerned about dirt or
fingerprints. However, malfunctioning may
result if the cartridge itself is dirty or
warped.
In case colour irregularity is
observed on a nearby TV screen
With this magnetically shielded type of
speaker system, the speakers can be
installed near a TV set. However, colour
irregularity may still be observed on the TV
screen depending on the type of your TV
set.
If colour irregularity is observed...
Turn off the TV set once, then turn it on
after 15 to 30 minutes.
If colour irregularity is observed
again...
Place the speakers farther away from the
TV set.
Maintenance
To clean the cabinet
Use a soft cloth slightly moistened with
mild detergent solution.
To clean the CD
When a CD is dirty, clean it with a cleaning
cloth. Wipe the CD from the center out.
Notes on CD
• Do not use solvents such as benzene,
thinner, commercially available cleaners,
or anti-static spray intended for vinyl
LPs.
• If there is a scratch, dirt or fingerprints on
the CD, it may cause a tracking error.
Notes on MD
• 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
as there can be a considerable rise in
temperature inside the car.
• Periodically remove dust and debris from
the cartridge surface by wiping it with a
dry cloth.
Do not open the shutter on the MD
cartridge
Trying to force the shutter open will
damage the shutter.

Guide to the Serial
Copy Management
System
An MD recorded through a digital input
cannot be used to make another recording
with digital input. As a digital audio
component, this MD deck conforms with
the Serial Copy Management System
standards. The Serial Copy Management
System restricts copies made by recording
digital signals to first-generation copies
only.
However, subsequent recording from the
first-generation copy onto another
recordable DAT tape or MD is possible
through the analog input jack on the DAT
or MD deck.
There are three general rules that apply to
this unit.
Rule 1
You can record from digital program
sources (CDs, DATs or premastered MDs)
onto a DAT tape or recordable MD via the
digital input jack on a DAT or MD deck.
You cannot, however, record from this
recorded DAT tape or MD onto another
DAT tape or recordable MD via a digital
input jack on the DAT or MD deck.
CD player
DAT deck
Rule 2
You can record a digital signal input from a
digital satellite broadcast onto a DAT tape
or recordable MD via the digital input jack
on the DAT or MD deck which is capable of
handling a sampling frequency of 32 kHz
or 48 kHz. (This unit supports 44.1 kHz
only.)
You can then record the contents of this
recorded DAT tape or MD (first-generation)
onto another DAT tape or recordable MD
via digital input jack on the DAT or MD
deck to create a second-generation digital
copy. Note, however, that on some BS
tuners, second-generation digital copying
may not be possible.
Rule 3
You can record a DAT tape or MD recorded
via the DAT or MD deck’s analog input jack
onto another DAT tape or MD via the DAT
or MD deck’s digital output jack. You
cannot, however, make a second-generation
DAT tape or MD copy via the DAT or MD
deck’s digital output jack.

System Limitations
of MD
The recording system in your MD deck is
radically 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 system itself and not to
mechanical causes.
”Disc Full” lights up even 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 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 under 12 seconds in length are not
counted and so erasing them may not lead
to an increase in the recording time.
Some tracks cannot be combined
with others
Track combination may become impossible
when tracks are edited.
The total recorded time and the
remaining time on the MD may not
total 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 contents recorded may thus
be shorter than the maximum recording
capacity. Disc space may also be further
reduced by scratches.
Tracks created through editing may
exhibit sound dropout during search
operations.
Track numbers are not recorded
correctly
Incorrect assignment or recording of track
numbers may result when CD tracks are
divided into several smaller tracks during
digital recording.
”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 been used.
Limitations when recording over an
existing track
• The correct remaining recording time
may not be displayed.
• 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 using the Erase
Function.
• The remaining recording 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 label a
track while recording over it.
The correct recorded/playing time
may not be displayed during
playback of monaural-format MDs.
