Sound does not affect the sensitivity of ears

Sensitivity of ears

Lowest and highest frequencies are not audible unless the sound has a certain level of volume. Lowest frequencies Highest frequencies
Small sound near large sound A small sound is not audible to human ears if it is produced at the same time as a large sound. (Masking effect)
Sound-skip prevention memory
During playback, this unit always stores signals in memory temporarily to prevent sound from being skipped in case of vibration. As a result, even when the data from the optical pickup is interrupted due to vibration, etc., the music will not be interrupted because the memory holds the data for several seconds.

During normal playback

Mini Disc Several sec. of data

In case of vibration

The sound data for several seconds is always stored during playback.
When the readout from disc is interrupted momentarily due to vibration or shock, the reproduced sound from the memory will not be interrupted. Reproduced sound
Digital memory Reproduced sound

System connections

Make connection as shown below. When connecting the related system components, refer also to the instruction manuals of the related components. Caution: Do not plug in the power lead until all connections are completed.
Malfunction of microprocessor
If operation is not possible or erroneous display appears even though all connections have been made properly, reset the microprocessor refero ring to In case of difficulty.


R-SE7 (optional)

System control cord


DP-SE7 (optional)

Optical fiber cable Audio cords




Remove the protective cap before using the DIGITAL IN jack. Remove cap.


For CD recording, the CD-TEXT function, and for positive system operation, connect the CD player (DP-SE7) to DIGITAL IN OPTICAL 1. Commercial digital equipment (BS tuner, DAT, etc.) can be connected to OPTICAL 2.
1. Connect all cords firmly. If connections are loose, there could be loss of sound or noise produced. 2. When plugging and unplugging connection cords, be sure to first remove the power cord from the AC outlet. Plugging/unplugging connection cords without removal of the power cord can cause malfunctions or damage to the unit.

Note on connection of optical-fiber cable
The optical-fiber cable is designed for use in the connection of the CD player (DP-SE7 or DP-SE9). The digital signal transmission makes it possible to record the high-quality sound of CDs without degradation.
Insert the optical-fiber cable straight into the connector until it clicks. Be sure to attach the protection cap when the connector is not used. Never bend or bundle the optical-fiber cable.
Connection of system control cord
Plugging the connector. Unplugging the connector
Insert the connector straight until it clicks.
While pushing the two sides of the connector, pull it straight out.
System operation features

Easy operation function

When this unit is connected with the amplifier-tuner (RSE7) via a system control cord, the basic operations of this unit can be controlled from the remote control unit provided with the R-SE7. This connection also makes possible the easy operation function which activates operations according to the input selection made on the R-SE7 (two-way operations). For details, refer to the Instruction Manual of the R-SE7.

Timer recording/playback

When this unit is connected with the amplifier-tuner (RSE7) via a system control cord, timer playback of a disc and timer recording of radio broadcasting are possible. For details, read this instruction manual as well as the Instruction Manual of the R-SE7. Operations on this unit: Steps 1 to 4 in Analog recording.

Each press switches the mode. 1 goes off (AUTO) : Track numbers are added au tomatically. 2 MANUAL : Track numbers are added manually. Extinguished in AUTO mode, lit in MANUAL mode.


4 Adjust the recording level.
1 Play the source to be recorded. 2 Press the key. 3 Adjust the recording level.

To decrease level

When the key is pressed, the recording automatically is paused.

To increase level


Level value

Adjust so that the 0 dB segments of the level meter light occasionally. Decrease the level if the red segments of the peak level meter light. The recording level can be adjusted with the 1 and keys of the remote control unit.

5 Start recording.

Pressing the pause (8) key also allows to cancel record-pause mode and start recording.
Recording is not possible if the following characters are displayed. DISC FULL : Disc is full \Erase undesired tracks. PROTECTED : The accidental erasure protect tab is open. 9 \ Close it. PLAY ONLY : A playback-only Mini Disc is loaded. \ Load a recordable Mini Disc. 0

During CD recording, the track number is sometimes incremented by 1 when the CD starts to be played. This is caused by a signal contained in the digital signal components recorded on the CD. Unnecessary track numbers can be deleted by referring to Erasing several tracks at a time (QUICK ERASE) or Erasing a single track during playback (TRACK ERASE). w
Digital recording and SCMS
Digital recording on a Mini disc is not possible under the following conditions. 1 In case the source contains the copy prohibit code (SCMS Serial Copy Management System). SCMS ON is displayed and the unit enters the record-pause mode. 2 Locking to the reference clock is not possible. UNLOCK is displayed and Pause status is engaged.
Sampling frequency Three types of digital signals are usually used according to the sampling frequencies. The sampling frequencies vary depending on the types of digital equipment as shown below. 32 kHz : Standard and long-hour modes of DAT, A mode broadcasting of BS tuner, etc. 44.1 kHz : Standard mode of DAT, CD, MD, etc. 48 kHz : Standard mode of DAT, B mode broadcasting of BS tuner, etc. (DAT : Digital Audio Tape deck) In general, high-quality recording based on digital signal transmission is not possible unless the source and recorder components use the same sampling frequency. As this unit has a built-in sampling rate converter, digital signals with 32 kHz and 48 kHz can be recorded by conversion to the MD sampling frequency (44.1 kHz).
SCMS (Serial Copy Management System) Designed for copyright protection, the SCMS is a prescription that copying of digital signals as they are in the digital form between digital audio equipment is allowable only for one generation.

Copy using digital input

Digital copy cannot be repeated.

Copy using analog input

Simplified CD recording
When a KENWOOD CD player equipped with a system control jack (DP-SE7 or DP-SE9) is connected to this unit via a system control cord, it is possible to select and record desired CD tracks from this unit. This function is referred to as O.T.E. (One Touch Edit). The synchronized recording with CD also possible in this configuration.
Connect the CD player to OPTICAL 1. Select the CD input on the amplifier. Open the write protect tab of the Mini Disc to make it recordable. Load the Mini Disc.
Recording a single CD track (O.T.E.)
1 Play a CD. 2 Start one-touch edit recording.
When the O.T.E. key is pressed during CD playback, the track being played will be replayed from the beginning and only this track will be recorded. After the track has been recorded, the MD recorder stops and the CD player enters pause mode.

Press the 7 key to stop recording in the middle.
Recording all tracks on a CD (O.T.E.)
1 Stop CD playback. 2 Start one-touch edit recording.
When the O.T.E. key is pressed while the CD player is in stop mode, all of the tracks of the CD will be recorded. After all of the CD tracks have been recorded, both the MD recorder and CD player stop.
Synchro recording with CD player
By connecting a KENWOOD CD player equipped with a system control jack (DP-SE7 or DP-SE9) to this unit via a system control cord and starting recording with the following procedure, the recording (MD) and playback (CD) can be started simultaneously so that there is no sound interruption.
1 Select the CD input on the amplifier. 2 Put the CD player in pause mode. 3 Select the desired CD track with the 4 or key. 4 Put the MD recorder in record-pause mode. 5 Start playback of the CD player.
