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 you to 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:
チStart your volume control at a low setting.
チSlowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and
clearly, and without distortion.
CAUTION!
THIS PRODUCT UTILIZES A LASER.
USE OF CONTROLS OR ADJUSTMENTS OR
PERFORMANCE OF PROCEDURES OTHER
THAN THOSE SPECIFIED HEREIN MAY
RESULT
IN
HAZARDOUS
RADIATION
EXPOSURE.
DO NOT OPEN COVERS AND DO NOT REPAIR
YOURSELF. REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED
PERSONNEL.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
チSet the dial and leave it there.
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.

Glossary
•SD Audio
An audio standard for SD Memory Cards. An encryption technology is
used in order to protect copyrights and the legal rights of the consumer as well as help develop a healthy music culture. There are
restrictions upon the copying of data etc. Use an application like SDJukebox etc. for creating data.
Adjust [TEMPO] on unit 2 (track B) and
match the BPM (beats per minute) on
track A and track B by listening
•Cue
Used to begin play. On this unit the cue point is used to store the
beginning of a track or an arbitrary point of a track to memory and
then to instantly begin play from this point.
•Use [TEMPO] on unit 2 (track B)
to adjust track B’s BPM value to
approximately match the BPM
value of track A indicated in the
display.
•Platter slip surface
The rotatable surface on an analog turntable which you place a record.
Although this unit is a digital turntable, play functionality is the same
as when operating a platter slip surface on an analog turntable.
BPM
•MP3 album
When creating multiple MP3 files on a computer and writing to a CDROM, you can organize the files using folders. These folders are called
albums on this unit. When you want to play tracks in sequential order
on this unit, use numbers like 001 and 002 etc. for naming the albums. ( Page 22)
•AAC
A compression standard that makes recording and play of high quality audio possible including MPEG2 (an international standard). Used
in SD Audio and broadcast satellite digital signals.
•MP3
MP3 is the abbreviated form of the international standard MPEG1/
Audio Layer3. MP3 allows you to achieve approximately ten to one
compression rates with bit rates of 128 kbps. MP3 is used widely with
SD Audio, CDs, and computers.
•Sampling frequency
The number of samples taken approximately each second when an
audio signal is digitally converted and stored in memory. The higher
the value the wider the frequency range can be used for digital conversion thus providing near original audio quality reproduction, however the resulting size of the audio data does become quite large.
•Bit rate
A value that indicates the audio signal compression rate. Indicates
the number of bits sampled approximately each second, the larger
the bit value the more information is contained resulting in better audio quality, however the size of the audio data does become quite
large.
Handling SD Memory Cards
When handling SD Memory Cards
Avoid the following:
•Altering or disassembling the SD Memory Card
•Striking, bending, dropping, or getting water on the SD Memory
Card
•Touching the metal connectors with your fingers or with metal objects
•Peeling off attached labels
•Attaching new labels or stickers
Concerning CDs
With this system, you can only play CDs having this
mark.
•Do not use irregularly shaped CDs. (May

not play properly if you are using a nonstandard conforming disc.
•For CDs with greater than 80 minutes total play time, the portion
beyond 80 minutes cannot be played on this unit.
•Depending on the CD, there may be apparent noise or the total
number of tracks may not be read properly. In either case, try reinserting the CD.
•Recorded music CDs that are partially or fully translucent may not
be usable with this unit.
•Do not use CDs that are dirty.
Note about using a DualDisc
•The digital audio content side of a DualDisc does not meet the
technical specifications of the Compact Disc Digital Audio (CDDA) format so play may not be possible.
•Do not use a DualDisc in this unit as it may get scratched or scraped.
Handling precautions
•If you are taking the CD from a cold to a warm environment, moisture may form on the CD. Wipe this off with a soft, dry, lint-free
cloth before using the CD.
•Do not write on the label side with a ball-point pen or other writing
instrument.
•Do not use record cleaning sprays, benzine, thinner, static electricity prevention liquids or any other solvent.
•Do not attach labels or stickers to CDs. (Do not use CDs with exposed adhesive from tape or left over peeled off stickers.)
Storage
