Listening caution (For Canada)
Getting started
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you’ve just
purchased is only the start of your musical enjoyment. Now it’s
time to consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement
your equipment offers. This manufacturer and the Electronic
Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics Group want you
to get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a safe level.
One that lets the sound come through loud and clear without
annoying blaring or distortion-and, most importantly, without
affecting your sensitive hearing.
We recommend that you avoid prolonged exposure to excessive
noise.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level”
adapts to higher volumes of sound. So what sounds “normal”
can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing.
Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level
BEFORE your hearing adapts.
To establish a safe level:
• Start your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably
and clearly, and without distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
• Set the dial and leave it there.
RQT8052
Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing
damage or loss in the future. After all, we want you listening for a
lifetime.

instructions handy for future reference.
1)
Read these instructions.
2)
Keep these instructions.
3)
Heed all warnings.
4)
Follow all instructions.
5)
Do not use this apparatus near water.
6)
Clean only with dry cloth.
7)

9)
Voltage
Do not use high voltage power sources. This can overload the unit and
cause a fire.
Do not use a DC power source. Check the source carefully when
setting the unit up on a ship or other place where DC is used.
AC mains lead protection
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or
grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has two blades with
one wider than the other. A grounding-type plug has two
blades and a third grounding prong. The wide blade or the
third prong are provided for your safety. If the provided plug
does not fit into your outlet, consult an electrician for
replacement of the obsolete outlet.
10) Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched
particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the
point where they exit from the apparatus.
11) Only use attachments/accessories
manufacturer.
Placement
Set the unit up on an even surface away from direct sunlight, high
temperatures, high humidity, and excessive vibration. These conditions
can damage the cabinet and other components, thereby shortening the
unit’s service life.
Do not place heavy items on the unit.

shock or malfunction.
Do not let liquids get into the unit. This can cause electric shock or
malfunction. If this occurs, immediately disconnect the unit from the power
supply and contact your dealer.
Do not spray insecticides onto or into the unit. They contain flammable
gases which can ignite if sprayed into the unit.
Service
Do not attempt to repair this unit by yourself. If sound is interrupted,
indicators fail to light, smoke appears, or any other problem that is not
covered in these instructions occurs, disconnect the AC mains lead and
contact your dealer or an authorized service center. Electric shock or
damage to the unit can occur if the unit is repaired, disassembled or
reconstructed by unqualified persons.
Extend operating life by disconnecting the unit from the power source if
it is not to be used for a long time.

or table specified by the manufacturer, or
sold with the apparatus. When a cart is
used, use caution when moving the cart/
apparatus combination to avoid injury from
tip-over.
13) Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when
unused for long periods of time.
RQT8052
14) Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing
is required when the apparatus has been damaged in any
way, such as power-supply cord or plug is damaged, liquid

formats).
• If you have recorded MP3/WMA on the same disc as CD-DA, only
the format recorded in the first session can be played.
• This unit is compatible with multi-session but if there are a lot of
sessions it takes more time for play to start. Keep the number of
sessions to a minimum to avoid this.
• If there is a large amount of JPEG data etc. within a WMA/MP3 file,
sound may not be output and play may not be possible.
• The unit can play a maximum of 400 albums and 999 tracks. If there
are multiple folders with many levels, there may be files and folders
that cannot be recognized.
Naming folders and files
At the time of recording, prefix folder and Example:
root
file names with 3-digit numbers in the
001 group
order you want to play them (this may not
work at times).
Files must have the extension:
001 track.mp3
002 track.mp3
“.WMA” or “.wma”
003 track.mp3
“.MP3” or “.mp3”
• This unit is compatible with Windows Media Audio 9 (WMA9),
however not compatible with WMA9 Professional/Lossless/Voice
and MBR*.
*Multiple Bit Rate: A file that contains the same content encoded at
several different bit rates.
• Noise may occur when playing WMA files.
• You cannot play WMA files that are copy protected.

• Reduce the volume in the following cases to avoid damage.
– When playing distorted sound.
– When the speakers emit strange noise (howling) from a record player,
noise from FM broadcasts, or continuous signals from an oscillator,
test disc, or electronic instrument.
– When adjusting the sound quality.
– When turning the unit on or off.

Speaker
How you set up your speakers can affect the bass and the sound field.
Note the following points.
• Place speakers on flat secure bases.
• Placing speakers too close to floors, walls, and corners can result in
excessive bass. Cover walls and windows with thick curtain.
• Keep your speakers at least 10 mm (13/32") away from the system for

n Limitations on high-speed recording
This unit uses a copy management system to limit the use of high-speed
recording.
• You cannot use high-speed recording to record the same CD for a
second time within 74 minutes of finishing the first high-speed
recording. (You can record at normal speed.)
If you try to start high-speed recording again, “PLEASE WAIT XX MIN.”
appears on the display. (“XX” is the number of minutes you must wait
before starting high-speed recording again.)
You can record up to 24 discs within 74 minutes.
If you finish recording 24 discs within approximately 74 minutes, you
cannot start recording the twenty-fifth disc.
n When recording at high-speed from CD to SD
Use Panasonic SD Memory cards with a transfer speed of 10 MB/sec or
better (SUPER HIGH SPEED/PRO HIGH SPEED types) for best results.
• The maximum transfer speed may not be achieved or high-speed
recording may not be possible if you use other cards.
• See our homepage for details.
http://panasonic.co.jp/pavc/global/cs
(This site is in English only.)
• You can use any kind of SD Memory card when recording at
normal-speed.
Note
• Depending on the condition of the disc, it may not be possible to record
at four times normal speed or to high-speed record. Record the CD at
normal speed.
• You cannot use high-speed recording when discs contain WMA/MP3
files.
• Discs are not recorded continually at four times normal speed. (Different
parts of the disc are read at different speeds.)
• You will not hear sound when using high-speed recording.
Your attention is drawn to the fact that recording pre-recorded
tapes or discs or other published or broadcast material may
infringe copyright laws.
