Ventilation
* Place the unit in a well ventilated position at least 10 cms away
from wall surfaces etc.
= Ensure that curtains and similar materials do not obstruct the
ventilation holes.
Stacking
Never place heavy items on top of the unit or the power cord.
Voltage
* ii iS very dangerous io use an AC power source of high voltage
such as for an air conditioner.
A lire might be caused by such a connection,
«A DC power source can not be used.
Be sure to check the power source carefully, especially on a
ship or other place where DC is used.
Power cord protection
e Avoid cuts, scratches or poor connection of the AC mains cord,
as this may resulf in fire or electric shock hazard,
"чт чья — | "OL Red WR Nf wr IR
Excessive bending. pulling or slicing of the cord should also be
avolded.
« Do not pull on the cord when you are disconnecting the power,
as this could cause an electric shock. Grasp the plug firmly

remove the batteries and store them in a cool, dark place.
If a battery leaks, remove all batteries and dispose of them pro-
perly. Thoroughly clean the battery compartment before Inser-
ting new batteries.
If the leaking electrolyte comes Into contact with skin or clothes,
flush with water immediately.
Keep batteries out of reach of children.
Do not use rechargeable (nickel-cadmium) type batteries.
Do not attempt to recharge alkaline or carbon batteries.
Do not dispose of used batteries in household rubbish.
Method for use
Use the remote control within 60 degrees ; and within 7 meters
(23 ft.) facing directly toward the remote control signal sensor.

About the Dolby noise-reduction
system [ACC only]
The Dolby noise-reduction system is designed to effectively
reduce the annoying high-frequency “hissing” noise typical of
cassette tapes. During recording, the system functions to in-
crease the high-frequency sound level, the sound, and then, dur-
ing playback, that same portion is weakened to bring It back to
the previous level.
This unit includes two types of Dolby noise-reduction systems,
the Dolby B NR-type and C NR-type.
Dolby B-type noise-reduction
Noise is reduced to about one-third.
Use this system when playing back tapes recorded by the Dolby-
B noise-reduction system, such as prerecorded music tapes, etc.
Dolby C-type noise-reduction
Noise is reduced to about one-tenth,
Use this system for the recording and playback of sound sources
that have a wide dynamic range and good tone quality, such as
FM broadcasts of live performances, etc, and for playing back
such tapes.

Sampling frequency Indicators
Because the deck has three types of sampling frequencies for
digital signals (i.e. 48 kHz, 44.1 kHz and 32 kHz), the deck can
perform recording of digital signals from not only CDs but also
from DAT and other digital sources.
The sampling frequency Indicators light up according to the
current sampling frequency of input signals.
48 kHz: Used for DAT tapes recorded with analog input
signals, etc.
44.1 kHz: Used for CD, commercially sold DCC music tapes
or analog-recorded DCC tapes, etc.
32 kHz Used for a source with a sampling frequency of 32
kHz.

DCC Tape: Abbreviated for Digital Compact Cassette Tape

About the DCC tape
There are two types of DCC tapes.
(D Commerclally sold music tapes
(2) Blank DCC tapes for recording of 45, 60, 75 and 90 minutes,
etc.
Construction of a DCC tape
Unlike an ACC, a DCC tape is sealed. It is protected by a slider,
The slider protects the tape and hub holes from dust, which may
cause possible dropouts {digital signal losses), and also prevents

Handling precautions
* Be carefui noi io damage the cassette tape length identification
holes. Damaged holes may cause possible malfunction of the
deck.
* Do not attempt to open the slider of the DCC tape in order to
pull out or touch the tape.
» Be careful not to drop the cassette or subject it to strong vibra-
tions.
Only use DCC tapes in a deck bearing the " EC ‘ logo. Do
not load DCC tapes into an ordinary analog "cassette deck. H
this occurs, the tape may be damaged.
A recorded tape can be protected agalnst any accldental erasure
by sliding the erasure-protect switch on the rear side of the
cassette Up to set the safety tab to the Protect positlon (closed
position) as shown in the diagram.

Recording cannot be performed
with this safety tab closed.

ACC tapes
Besides normal ACC tapes. this deck can also use CrO, and
metal tapes. (The automatic tape selection function equipped
with this deck determires the types of ACC tape.)
Note for using ACC tapes longer than
90-minute
H is not recommended that tapes longer than 90 minutes be
used, because the tapes are too ihin for adequate tension during
any tape movement (ie. repeated stop, fast forwarding or rewind).
Therefare these tapes may be stretched and tangled up in the
head assembly (the heads, capstans and pinch rollers) of the
deck.
Please take up the tape slack.
Possible damage to the tape may occur if there is too much
slack.
