this unit Be sure to use only CD-R and CD-RW discs made by reliable manufacturers. CD-R and CD-RW digital audio discs that display either of the following marks can be used with this unit.

Discs that can be used for recording CD-R discs can only be recorded on once, and the recorded

material cannot be erased.

CD-RW discs can be recorded on, have the recorded material erased, and then recorded on again.

Discs that cannot be used for recording on this unit

Discs bearing marks other than those shown above.

Discs intended for recording computer data.

Discs intended for professional use or labeled FOR PROFESSIONAL USE ONLY.

79-minute CD-R disc The actual recordable time of the CD-R disc with 80 written on its package is 79 minutes 57 seconds. This manual describes such CD-R disc as 79-minute CD-R disc.

Finalization of CD-R/CD-RW discs To play back CD-R discs on a standard CD player and CD-RW discs on CD-RW-compatible players, you need to perform the process known as finalization. In the finalization process, the Table of Contents (TOC) is written onto the discs.

NOTES ON DISCS Handling of discs Heed the following notes on handling of discs not to create any cause for a recording failure, a loss of the recorded data, or a malfunction of this unit.

This compact disc recorder is designed for use with CDs (including 8cm [3] discs) bearing the following marks only. Never attempt to load any other type of disc into this unit.

CDs are not subjected to wear during play. However if the disc is handled improperly, damage may be created on the disc to adversely affect the discs play.

When writing on the label side of CD-R or CD-RW discs, use an oil-based felt-tipped pen.

Do not use cleaning discs or warped discs. All of these could damage this unit.

Although playback of CDs is generally not affected by small particles of dust or fingerprints on their playing surface, dust, fingerprints, small scratches and direct sunlight on the recording surface of a CD-R or CD-RW disc may make recording impos- sible. Therefore, for optimal performance of the recorder and for long-term enjoyment of your CD collection, handle discs correctly as outlined in the following guidelines.

1. Hold discs by touching only the edges or center hole. When setting/removing a disc to/from the disc tray, be careful not to damage the disc surface.

2. When a disc is not currently being used, remove it from the recorder and store in an appropriate case.

3. With proper disc maintenance, cleaning should not be necessary. However, should cleaning be required, wipe by using a clean, dry cloth. Do not wipe with a circular motion; wipe straight outward from the center.

Do not try to clean the discs surface by using any type of disc cleaner, record spray, antistatic spray or liquid, or any other chemical-based liquid, because such substances might irreparably damage the discs surface.

Do not expose discs to direct sunlight, high temperature, or high humidity for a long period of time, because this might warp or otherwise damage the disc.

To prevent a malfunction of this unit

Do not use any non-standard shaped CDs (heart, flower shaped, etc.) available on the market, because they are off-balance in their weight. If a non-standard shaped CD is loaded into this unit, it may create problems such as improper playback, opening the disc tray, creating an usual noise, and this units failure.

Be sure to use a felt-tip pen or similar writing tool when writing on the label side of the disc. Do not use a ball-point pen, pencil, or other hard-tipped writing tool, as these may damage the disc and may adversely affect further recording on the disc.

Do not use the discs with glue left on their surface. It may get stuck in this unit or create damage to this unit.

When using an 8cm (3) disc, do not place a normal 12cm (5) disc on top of it.

Do not use the discs printed with commercially available label printers.

No!

SELECTING THE GROUP OR TRACK MODE

Data on the HDD The data recorded onto the built-in HDD of this unit will be numbered and organized based on the following concept:

Group A collection of disc(s), album(s), and a bookmark are generically called group.

Disc

One consequent recording is counted and numbered as one unit of disc. The HDD of this unit can record 999 discs at maximum. (However, the number of discs to be created may be less than 999 for the space availability on the HDD.) The maximum length of one disc on the HDD is 179 minutes 59 seconds.

Album

A group of the source programs selected from different discs and recorded as the playlist is called album. Album corresponds to the program function (to play back favorite tracks in the desired order) of a standard CD player. This unit can record 999 albums at maximum onto the HDD.

Bookmark

This unit can make a temporary bookmark on a favorite track as playing back. The list of the program sources marked is called bookmark. This marking is temporary and cannot be duplicated. However, an album can be easily created by copying the bookmarked tracks (P.54).

Track 99 tracks can be recorded onto a disc at maximum. (However the number of discs tracks to be recorded may be less than 99 for the space availability on the HDD.) One track must be 4 seconds at shortest and 179 minutes 59 seconds at longest.

RECORDING FROM AN EXTERNAL COMPONENT ONTO THE HDD

Using an external timer to record Notes on recording time setting This unit is not equipped with the clock function. Use an external timer when making a timer recording.

It may take 30 seconds to 1 minute after the power of this unit is turned on by an external timer until an actual recording starts. (This length of time is subject to change depending on the condition.) During this time, no recording is made. Therefore set the time that is 2-minute earlier than the starting time of the program to be recorded for turning on this unit.

As a characteristic of an HDD recorder, it is necessary to store information to control audio data as well as audio data itself. This informa- tion is normally recorded when recording is stopped. Therefore if the power of this unit is turned off before recording is stopped, no information to control audio data and no audio data are stored. Set the time that is longer than 3-minute after the program to be recorded finishes for turning off this unit by an external timer.

Set the time that is 2-minute longer than actual recording time for the total recording time.

Following chart indicates the time flow when this unit makes timer recordings.

Example: To record the program that starts at 9:00 and ends at 10:00.

Set the external timer to be turned on at 8:58.

Set the external timer to be turned off after 10:03.

Set 1 hour 2 minutes for the total recording time on this unit.

Memo

Actual recorded material includes a little more than the set amount of time at both beginning and end of the recording. Delete unnecessary parts using the editing operation.

Recording will be stopped if copy protected digital signals are input while timer recording is being made.

If you set the total recording time over 179 minutes 59 seconds, recording will be made extending several discs. To play the recorded materials sequentially, select Style All as the play style (P.20).

GLOSSARY

Album

An album is a unit used while playing back or recording audio signals on this unit. For detailed information, see Data on the HDD (P.16).

Audio Master Quality Recording

Audio Master Quality Recording is a high quality recording mode used to create an audio CD with its original quality. By minimizing the jitter that subtly degrades the audio quality or even causes data transmission failure, Audio Master Quality Recording actualizes a clear sound close to the original sound.

Bookmark

A bookmark is a collection of audio tracks of your preference. You can play back or record audio data using a bookmark, and an album can be created from a bookmark. For detailed information, see Data on the HDD (P.16) or Data on CDs (P.17).

CD TEXT

CD TEXT is text information (album title, track title, etc) recorded on CDs and can be read only with a CD player or CD-ROM drive that supports CD TEXT.

Digital Move

Digital move implies moving audio data recorded on the HDD onto CD-R/RW discs. The audio data once digital moved onto CD-R/RW discs are erased from the HDD. Because digital move is regarded as one generation of digital copying, audio data can be digitally copied from CDs onto the HDD and then from the HDD onto CD-R/RW discs. However, audio data cannot be copied onto several CD-R/ RW discs at the same time.

Disc

A disc is a unit used while playing back or recording audio signals on this unit. For detailed information, see Data on the HDD (P.16) or Data on CDs (P.17).

Emphasis

Emphasis is a recording mode used to improve the quality of audio data. Emphasis turns the volume of the upper register up before recording and down while playing back, resulting in a decrease in the noise level of the upper register.

Finalize

Finalize is a process to enable audio data recorded onto CD-R/RW discs to be played back on CD players or other CD-RW compatible devices. An audio disc created on this unit must be finalized to be played back on other playback devices.

Group

A group is a unit used while playing back or recording audio signals on this unit and is a collective term for albums, discs and book- marks. A group consists of several audio tracks. For detailed information, see Data on the HDD (P.16) or Data on CDs (P.17).

SCMS

SCMS (Serial Copy Management System) is a system developed by JASRAC (Japanese Society for Rights of Authors, Composers and Producers) to prevent unlimited digital copying of CDs and other prerecorded media. In essence, SCMS prevents more than one generation of digital copying (i.e. a copy of an SCMS copy- protected source cannot be duplicated).

TOC

TOC (Table of Contents) is a disc index recorded on a finalized disc and enables playback devices to distinguish audio tracks recorded on the disc.

Track

A track is equivalent to one audio recording and is the smallest unit used while playing back or recording audio signals on this unit. For detailed information, see Data on the HDD (P.16) or Data on CDs (P.17).

Track Mark

A track mark is a mark made at the beginning of a track and enables playback devices to distinguish the starting position of each audio track. A track mark also facilitates track search and intro playback. You can make a track mark on this unit either automatically or manually.

Rules of digital recording SCMS (Serial Copy Management System) As a digital audio component, this unit conforms with the Serial Copy Management System (SCMS) standards. The Serial Copy Management System restricts copies made by recording digital signals to first-generation copies only.

The digital program sources that have been recorded cannot be digitally recorded again.

There are 2 rules as follows:

Rule 1

Digital sources such as commercially available CDs can be copied digitally onto other recordable digital media with this unit (a first- generation digital copy). However, the first-generation digital copy cannot be copied digitally any further.

Rule 2

The source that was recorded via the ANALOG LINE IN (REC) jacks can be copied digitally onto other recordable digital media (a first-generation digital copy). However, the first-generation digital copy cannot be copied digitally any further.

This unit monitors the SCMS status for each track when a digital recording is made. If the track is protected from digital recording and copying, it is not possible to make a digital recording and copy of that track.

The SCMS standard does not apply to analog recording and copying.

When making a copy from a CD onto the HDD, or from the HDD onto a CD-R or CD-RW disc, any of the copy methods described below can be selected. The following selections are contained in Copy Method.

Auto Dig/Anlg: Automatically switches to analog recording if the track cannot be digitally recorded for SCMS.

Digital Copy: Performs digital copying of only those tracks that can be digitally copied.

Digital Move: Performs digital copying of the tracks that cannot be digitally copied by Digital Copy when copying from the HDD onto a CD-R or CD-RW disc.

Analog Copy: Performs analog copying regardless of the SCMS standard.

Digital Move This unit has a built-in HDD with large space that makes a long recording possible. You can create your own CD by editing the various program sources that have been recorded onto the HDD of this unit and copying them onto a CD-R or CD-RW disc.

If you want to make a digital copy of the original data that has been created on the HDD to a CD-R or CD-RW disc, the Digital Move method is convenient. You can make a digital copy from the HDD onto a CD-R or CD-RW disc even if the track is protected from making a second-generation copy by the SCMS standard.

However, since the concept of Digital Move is that the data is moved from the HDD onto a CD-R or CD-RW disc, the original data on the HDD is erased when moving is complete.

RULES OF DIGITAL RECORDING AND NOTES ON SYSTEM Notes on system Number and length of recordable discs and tracks One CD-R or CD-RW disc, or one disc on the HDD can be

recorded with up to 99 tracks on them.

Once 99 tracks have been recorded, no further recording is possible even if space for recording is available on the disc.

The minimum length of one track must be 4 seconds. If a recording is stopped while the track is less than 4 seconds long, this unit will record for 4 seconds, and then stop recording. The maximum length of one track is 179 minutes 59 seconds for the HDD.

999 discs can be created at maximum on the HDD of this unit. However, the number of discs that can be created is limited according to the space availability (total recordable time) on the HDD.

The maximum length of one disc on the HDD is 99 minutes 59 seconds. However, since each track on the HDD is handled in the unit of frame (75 frames are equal to one second), the maximum length of one track or disc may vary slightly.

When recording on a CD-R or CD-RW disc, 2-second silence will be automatically added to the beginning of the first track. Therefore the actual total recordable time will be 2 seconds shorter than the total recordable time of a CD-R or CD-RW disc.

Source sampling rate conversion Digital input of this unit supports sampling frequencies of 32kHz,

44.1kHz, 48kHz, and 96kHz. This unit converts these inputs to the 44.1kHz,16-bit digital signals and records them onto the HDD, or a CD-R or CD-RW disc.

Analog input is also converted to the same digital signal to be recorded.

This unit outputs the signals at the sampling frequency of 44.1kHz, 16-bit from its digital output.

Recording of non-audio signals This unit is designed exclusively for recording audio signals.

Recording is only possible for audio signals.

When a CD with CD TEXT is copied onto the HDD, CD TEXT will be automatically copied if it is not copy protected. When a CD with CD TEXT is recorded from an external CD player, CD TEXT cannot be copied even if it is not copy protected. To copy CD TEXT, use the built-in CDR drive of this unit.

If the digital signals contain graphic data such as CD graphics, the non-audio signals will not be recorded.

It is not possible to record from non-audio sources such as CD- ROM or DVD.

Data processing A small amount of space may be used for data processing besides

recording the actual program sources.

Although this unit is capable of recording 999 albums at maximum onto the HDD, the data processing speed may slow down if a large number of albums is created.
