PREPARATION FOR USE

Speaker connection Connect each speaker wire to the SPEAKERS terminals.

Cautions Do not let the bare speaker wires touch each other as this

could damage the amplifier and/or speakers. When connecting the speakers to this system, be sure to

connect the speaker wires properly. Do not mistake the right channel for the left channel and the plus (+) terminal for the minus () terminal.

Set the SPEAKERS SELECTOR switch on the rear panel of MX-S90 to the proper position before connections. If you use YAMAHA Active Servo Processing Speaker System NX-S90, set this switch to NX-S90. If you use a speaker system other than NX-S90, set this switch to CONVENTIONAL.

Connecting the AC supply leads These connections must be done after all other connections have been completed. First, plug the AC supply lead of MX-S90 into the AC

OUTLET on the rear of CTX-S90. Next, plug the AC supply lead of CTX-S90 into a wall AC

outlet. * Unplug the AC supply lead of CTX-S90 from the AC outlet

if the system is not to be used for a long period of time.

AC OUTLET (SWITCHED) on the rear panel of CTX-S90 Use this to connect the AC supply lead from another component to CTX-S90. The power to this outlet is controlled by the POWER switch of CTX-S90 or the provided remote control transmitter. This outlet will supply power to the connected component whenever CTX-S90 is turned on. The maximum power (power consumption of component) that can be connected to the AC OUTLET (SWITCHED) is 420 watts. It is the best way to connect the AC supply lead of MX-S90 to this outlet. By doing so, the power of the whole system can be turned on/off by the POWER switch of CTX-S90 or the provided remote control transmitter. After the connection, keep the POWER switch of MX-S90 in the ON position.

So you do not have to reset the time if the AC power supply is resumed within about 30 minutes. When the AC power supply is resumed after more than 30 minutes pass without power supply, the time display will flash on and off to indicate that the time must be reset.

Note If this system is left for several minutes without setting the time after the AC power lead of this system is connected to the AC outlet, there may be a case that the display is turned into a demonstration mode. (This mode is virtually unnecessary for using this system.) In this case, first turn the power on by pressing the POWER switch to cancel the mode, and then set the time.

Care of compact discs Compact discs are fairly resistant to damage, however mistracking can occur due to an accumulation of dirt on the disc surface. Follow the guidelines below for maximum enjoyment from your CD collection and player. Do not write on either side of the disc, particularly the non-

label side. Signals are read from the non-label side. Do not mark this surface.

Keep your discs away from direct sunlight, heat and excessive moisture.

Always hold the CDs by the edges. Fingerprints, dirt or water on the CDs can cause noise or mistracking. If a CD is dirty or does not play properly, clean it with a soft, dry cloth, wiping straight out from the center, along the radius.

Automatic preset tuning You can also make use of an automatic preset tuning function. By this function, this unit performs automatic tuning and stores stations with strong signals sequentially. Up to 40 stations are stored automatically in the same way as in the manual preset tuning method on the previous page.

1 Press the TUNER input selector button.

2 Press and hold the AUTO MEMORY button for about 2 seconds. * The MEMORY and AUTO TUNING indicators will flash.

This unit performs automatic tuning and received stations are programmed to A1, A2 ... A8 sequentially.

After the automatic preset tuning is completed The display shows the frequencies of the first preset station (stored to A1). Check the contents and the number of preset stations by following the procedure of the section To recall a preset station on the previous page.

To recall a preset station Simply follow the procedure of the section To recall a preset station on the previous page.

Notes The automatic preset tuning search will be performed

through all frequencies until 40 stations are stored. If the number of received stations is less than 40, the search will stop after searching through all frequencies.

With this function, only stations with sufficient signal strength are stored automatically. If the station you want to program is weak in signal strength, tune to it in monaural manually and program it by following the procedure of the section To store stations on the previous page.

You can replace a preset station by another FM or AM (MW or LW) station manually by simply following the procedure of the section To store stations on the previous page.

TUNING OPERATION

Fundamental rules of internal automatic preset tuning operation Basically, FM stations are programmed onto area A, B and C, and AM stations are programmed onto area D and E (MW stations are onto D and LW stations are onto E) in that order automatically. * If, for example, the number of received FM stations is not

enough to fill up three areas (A, B and C), AM (MW or LW) stations are programmed closely from the preceeding empty areas. In such a case, AM (MW) stations are programmed from area B or C (and LW stations are from area C or D.)

* Moreover, one area is programmed with stations of the same band only. If, for example, the last FM station is programmed to B4, B5B8 will be programmed with no station, and AM (MW) stations are programmed from area C.

Memory back-up The memory back-up circuit prevents the programmed data from being lost even if the AC supply lead is disconnected from the AC outlet or the power is cut due to temporary power failure. If, however, the power is cut for more than one week, the memory may be erased. If so, it can be re- programmed by simply following the Preset tuning steps.

General information Do not use C-120 tapes, tapes with internal reels or poor-

quality tapes, since they can cause malfunctions. Before loading a tape into the cassette compartment,

tighten the slack tape with a pen or pencil. Tapes have removable tabs which prevent accidental

recording or erasing from taking place. Removing the tab on the top left protects the side facing you from erasure. Cover the tab holes with adhesive tape to erase or record again.

This deck is a Single Cassette Deck with Automatic Reverse Function.

This deck features an auto tape selector. Just load the tape, and the tape formula being used will be sensed automatically.

This unit can play back metal tapes as well as normal or chrome tapes, and recording can also be done on metal tapes.

When covering erasure prevention tab holes, do not cover the chrome and metal detection holes. Otherwise, the deck will treat tape as normal tape.

Do not press the OPEN/CLOSE button during playback or recording.

Tape playback 1 Press the TAPE input selector button.

2 Open the cassette compartment by pressing the OPEN/CLOSE button.

3 Load the tape into the cassette compartment.

4 Set the Dolby NR switch to B or C if the tape has been recorded with Dolby noise reduction, and to OFF if Dolby NR was not used. * For selection of the Dolby B or C position, refer to the

Dolby B and C Type Noise Reduction on page 27.

5 Set the reverse mode switch as desired.

The reverse mode switch can be operated before or during playback, and changes tape playback as follows:

Dolby B and C Type Noise Reduction With cassette tapes, the most noticeable form of noise is high frequency hiss. To reduce this hiss noise, this unit has been equipped with a newly developed Dolby C noise reduction system in addition to its conventional Dolby B NR. Either type of noise reduction may be selected with the switch provided. Dolby B NR has a noise reduction effect of about 10 dB in the high frequency range. The corresponding figure with Dolby C NR is about 20 dB, but this is over the entire range where the human ear is most sensitive to noise (2 kHz to 8 kHz). Also, Dolby C NR has the same noise reduction effect at both high and low signal levels. In addition, Dolby C NR improves the tapes MOL (Maximum Output Level). Dolby noise reduction is a 2 part process that acts both on recording and playback; be sure that the noise reduction button is set to the same position on record and play. * Noise in the source material cannot be reduced with the

Dolby NR system.

DOLBY B.C NR HX PRO

Dolby HX PRO Dynamic Bias Servo System This unit incorporates the Dolby HX Pro system which automatically controls the effective bias to reduce distortion and noise, improving high frequency response during recording. Tapes recorded with this system retain the same high quality even when played back on any other tape deck.

To stop playback Press the stop button.

Note When removing the tape, press the stop button, and then open the cassette compartment.

Direct operation Even if an input source other than tape deck is selected, pressing the play button (or the fast wind button) will start playback (or fast winding) directly.

Tape Counter (LINEAR COUNTER) and RESET button This unit is equipped with a tape counter which is useful for searching and locating a desired point on tape. The tape counter is displayed by minutes and seconds, though the displayed time is not so close to the actual elapsed time. (It will be close to the actual elapsed time by using a tape with the length of 60 minutes or 90 minutes.) Pressing the RESET button on the left side of the tape counter resets the tape counter to 0:00.

REMAIN indicators The remaining amount of the tape for the side now being played back is shown by the illumination of these indicators. According as the tape is played back, the indicators will go out one by one. When the tape playback nears the end of the side, the indicator at the left end flashes rapidly. However, when using a tape with large hubs, the tape may stop before the indicator flashes. This is because the error between the displayed time and the actual elapsed time becomes large when using these tapes.

ACTIVE SERVO TECHNOLOGY (for Speaker System NX-S90 only)

Port

Cabinet

High- amplitude bass sound

Signals of low amplitude

Negative-impedance output drive

Active Servo Processing Amplifier

Air woofer (Helmholtz resonator)

Signals

The theory of the Active Servo Technology is based upon two major factors, the Helmholtz resonator and negative- impedance drive. Active Servo Processing speakers reproduce the bass frequencies through an air woofer, which is a small port or opening in the speakers cabinet. This opening is used instead of, and performs the functions of, a woofer in a conventionally designed speaker system. Thus, signals of low amplitude within the cabinet can, according to the Helmholtz resonance theory, be output from this opening as waves of great amplitude if the design is such that the size of the opening and the volume of the cabinet are in the correct proportion to satisfy a certain ratio. In order to accomplish this, moreover, the amplitudes within the cabinet must be both precise and of sufficient power because these amplitudes must overcome the load presented by the air that exists within the cabinet.

Thus it is this problem that is resolved through the employment of a design in which the amplifier functions to supply the signals. If the electrical resistance of the voice coil is reduced to zero, the movement of the speaker unit would become linear with respect to signal voltage, and, to accomplish this, a special negative-impedance output-drive amplifier for subtracting output impedance of the amplifier is used. By employing negative-impedance drive circuits, the amplifier is able to generate precise, low-amplitude low-frequency waves with superior damping characteristics, and these waves are then radiated from the cabinet opening as high- amplitude signals. The system can, therefore, by employing the negative-impedance output drive amplifier and a speaker cabinet with the Helmholtz resonator, reproduce an extremely wide range of frequencies with amazing sound quality and less distortion. The features described above are combined to be the fundamental structure of the Active Servo Technology.
