Create your own ATRAC CDs In addition to the usual audio CDs, you can play an original CD, called ATRAC CD, that you create with the supplied software, SonicStage. Using SonicStage, about 30 audio CDs* can be recorded on one CD-R or CD-RW. The following is a quick overview of how you listen to music on your ATRAC CD.

Install SonicStage on your computer. SonicStage is software that takes music downloaded from audio CDs and the Internet on your computer and creates original CDs. It can be installed from the supplied CD-ROM.

Create an ATRAC CD. After selecting your favorite songs from music stored on your computer, record them on a CD-R/CD-RW using SonicStage.

Listen to them with this CD player. You can enjoy lots of songs on your original CD.

Please see the supplied Installation/Operating Guide for how to install SonicStage and how to create ATRAC CDs.

* When the total playing time of one CD (album) is estimated at 60 minutes and you are recording on a 700MB CD-R/CD-RW at 48kbps in ATRAC3plus format.

Audio CDs: CDDA format CDs CDDA (Compact Disc Digital Audio) is a recording standard used for Audio CDs.

ATRAC CDs: CD-R/CD-RW on which audio data compressed in the ATRAC3plus or/and ATRAC3 format has been recorded* ATRAC3 (Adaptive Transform Acoustic Coding3) is audio compression technology that satisfies the demand for high sound quality and high compression rates. ATRAC3plus is audio compression technology developed from the ATRAC3 format and can compress audio files to about 1/20 of their original size at 64kbps. You can create an ATRAC CD using SonicStage.

MP3 CDs: CD-R/CD-RW on which audio data compressed in the MP3 format has been recorded* MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio Layer3) is audio compression technology that can compress audio files to about 1/10 of their original size.

CD-R/CD-RW on which mixed audio data compressed in the ATRAC3plus/ATRAC3, or MP3 formats has been recorded by using an software other than SonicStage can also be played. With SonicStage, you cannot create a CD on which mixed audio data is recorded.

* Only ISO 9660 Level 1/2 and Joliet extension format discs can be played.

The structure of ATRAC CDs/MP3 CDs ATRAC CDs/MP3 CDs consist of files and groups. A file is equivalent to a track of an audio CD. A group is a bundle of files and is equivalent to an album. For MP3 CDs, this CD player recognizes an MP3 folder as a group so that ATRAC CDs and MP3 CDs can be operated in the same way.

Playing order of ATRAC CDs and MP3 CDs For ATRAC CDs, files are played in the order selected in SonicStage. For MP3 CDs, the playing order may differ depending on the method used to record MP3 files on the disc. In the following example, files are played in order of 1 to 7.

Notes on ATRAC CDs Maximum number of groups: 255

Maximum number of files: 999 CD-Rs/CD-RWs recorded in the ATRAC3plus/ATRAC3 format

cannot be played on your computer.

Notes on MP3 CDs Maximum number of groups: 100

Maximum number of files: 400 Maximum directory level: 8

A group that does not include an MP3 file is skipped. Be sure to add the file extension mp3 to the file name.

However, if you add the file extension mp3 to a file other than an MP3 file, the player will not be able to recognize the file properly.

This player can play bit rates of 16 to 320 kbps, and sampling frequencies of 32/44.1/ 48 kHz. Variable Bit Rate (VBR) file can also be played.

To compress a source in an MP3 file, we recommend setting the compression parameters to 44.1 kHz, 128 kbps, and Constant Bit Rate.

To record up to the maximum capacity, set the writing software to halting of writing.

To record to the maximum capacity at one time up on media that has nothing recorded on it, set the writing software to Disc at Once.

Do not place anything within 10 mm of the side of the cabinet. The ventilation holes must be unobstructed for the player to operate properly and prolong the life of its components.

If the player is left in a car parked in the sun, be sure to choose a location in the car where the player will not be subjected to the direct rays of the sun.

Since a strong magnet is used for the speakers, keep personal credit cards using magnetic coding or spring-wound watches away from the player to prevent possible damage from the magnet.

On operation If the player 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 section. Should this occur, the player will not operate properly. In this case, remove the CD and wait about an hour for the moisture to evaporate.

If the player has not been used for a long time, set it in the playback mode to warm it up for a few minutes before inserting a cassette.

Troubleshooting (continued)

43

Maintenance Cleaning the tape heads and tape path Wipe the heads, the pinch rollers and the capstans with a cleaning swab slightly moistened with cleaning fluid or alcohol after every 10 hours of operation for optimum playback and recording quality. To make the best possible recording, however, we recommend that you clean all surfaces over which tape travels before each recording.

After cleaning, insert a tape when the areas cleaned are completely dry.

Demagnetizing the tape heads After 20 to 30 hours of use, enough residual magnetism will have built up on the tape heads to begin to cause loss of high frequency sound and hiss. At this time, you should demagnetize the heads and all metal parts in the tape path with a commercially available tape head demagnetizer.

Cleaning the cabinet Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with a soft cloth slightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder, or solvent, such as alcohol or benzine.
