About CD-R and CD-RW discs
CD-R discs can be recorded once only. Once they have been used for recording, they cannot be erased or rerecorded. However, if space is available on the disc, additional material can be recorded. The pack-aging of CD-R discs will include one of the following logos: CD-R and CD-RW discs are sensitive to the effects of heat and ultraviolet rays. It is important that they are not stored in a location where direct sunlight will fall on them, and which is away from sources of heat such as radiators or heat-generating electrical devices. Always store CD-R and CD-RW discs in their cases to avoid dirt and dust accumulating on their surfaces. By contrast, a CD-RW disc can be used in much the same way as a CD-R disc, but the last track or tracks recorded can be erased before the disc has been finalized, and the space on the disc can be re- used for other recordings. The packaging of CD-RW discs will include the logo one of the following logos:

High Speed

When labeling CD-R and CD-RW discs, always use a soft oil-based felt-tipped pen to write the information. Never use a ball-point or hard-tipped pen, as this may cause damage to the recorded side. Always keep the recording sides of the discs away from grime and dust to avoid a reduction in sound quality. To clean a disc, wipe gently with a soft dry cloth from the center towards the outside edge. Do not use thinner, gasoline, benzene or LP cleaning fluid, as these will damage the disc and cause the disc unplayable. Do not put labels or protective sheets on the discs and do not use any protective coating spray. If you are in any doubt as to the care and handling of a CD-R disc, read the precautions supplied with the disc, or contact the disc manufacturer directly.
H o w e v e r, y o u s h o u l d n o t e t h a t a n a u d i o C D created using a CD-RW900 disc may not play back satisfactorily on every audio CD player. It will, naturally, be playable on the CD-RW900. This is in no way a limitation of the CD-RW900 itself, but of the difference between the different types of media and the methods used to read them. There are precautions that you should take when handling CD-R and CD-RW discs. Avoid touching the recording (non-label) side of a disc on which you will be recording. Recording on a disc requires a cleaner surface than playing back, and fingerprints, grease, etc. can cause errors in the recording process.

Finalizing

Although audio data may be written on a CD-R or CDRW disc, a standard CD player will not be able to read the data (i.e. play back the audio) until a final *TOC has been written at the start of the disc.
*TOC=Table of contents: information of recorded data, which contains titles, starting and ending addresses, and etc.
In the case of a CD-RW disc which has been finalized, the whole of the disc may be erased, or the disc may be refreshed, and the disc re-used. In addition, a CD-RW disc that has been finalized may be unfinalized, i.e. only the TOC is removed. This allows further tracks to be recorded to the disc, provided that there is space on the disc.
The process of writing this table of contents is known as finalizing. Once this has been done, no further data can be written to the disc. See Finalizing on page 25 for details.

Recordable discs

In this maanual, we use the term recordable disc to describe a CD-R or CD-RW disc that has not been finalized, i.e. further recording is possible on the disc.
1 Introduction 1-Introduction
Environmental considerations
The CD-RW900 may be used in most areas, but to maintain top performance, and prolong operating life, observe the following environmental conditions: The nominal temperature should be between 5C and 35C (41F and 95F). Relative humidity should be 30 to 90 degrees noncondensing. As the unit may become hot during operation, always leave sufficient space above the unit for ventilation. Do not install this unit in a confined space such as a book case or similar product, and do not put any material goods on the unit. Avoid installing this apparatus on top of any heatgenerating electrical device such as a power amplifier. Make sure that the unit is mounted in a level position for correct operation.

The voltage supplied to the unit should match the voltage as printed on the rear panel. If you are in any doubt regarding this matter, consult an electrician.
Handling of compact discs
The CD-RW900 has been designed for the playback of CD-DA format discs and MP3 files recorded in ISO9660 format: In addition to ordinary 5-inch and 3-inch CDs, it can also play properly recorded CD-R and CD-RW discs. Always place the compact discs in the trays with their label facing upward. To remove a disc from its case, press down on the center of the disc holder, then lift the disc out, holding it carefully by the edges. Do not affix any labels or stickers to the label side of the disc. Do not write on the disc with a ballpoint pen. Do not insert discs that have adhesive remaining from tape or stickers that have been removed. If they are inserted into the player, they could stick to the internal mechanism, requiring removal by a technician. Do not use cracked discs. Only use circular compact discs. Avoid using noncircular promotional, etc. discs.
Avoid getting fingerprints on the signal side (opposite the label side). Grime and dust may cause skipping, so keep discs clean and store them in their cases when not being played. To clean the signal side of a disc, wipe gently with a soft dry cloth from the center towards the outside edge.
The CD-RW900 cannot play unfinalized CD-R/RW discs. Music discs with copy control, a compact disc copyprotection system, have been released form several record companies aiming to protect the copyright. Since some of these discs do not comply with the CD specifications, they may not be playable on the CD-RW900.
Do not use any record spray, anti-static solutions, benzene, paint thinner or other chemical agents to clean CDs as they could damage the delicate playing surface. It may cause CDs unplayable. Discs should be returned to their cases after use to avoid serious scratches that could cause the laser pickup to skip. Keep discs away from direct sunlight, and places of high heat and humidity. If left in such places, warping could result.

1-Introduction 5Recording
Before you start recording using the CD-RW900, make sure that you understand the following key points: Once you have recorded on a CD-R disc, the data cannot be erased from it. You can add tracks to an unfinalized recordable disc. Once finalized, a CD-R disc is fixed and behaves in the same way as a pre-recorded disc. Finalized CD-RW discs, however, can be erased, refreshed and re-recorded.

Input selection

To select the input to be recorded, press the INPUT SELECT key on the main unit. Repeated presses of the key cycle through the following options: ANALOG OPTICAL COAXIAL Analog Optical digital in Coaxial digital in Digital recording level The level of the digital signal may be controlled using the digital volume menu, as described below. 1 Call up the VOLUME option in the REC sub-menu (refer to Operation basics on page 14). Push the MULTI JOG dial to enter the function on. 2 Rotate the MULTI JOG dial to adjust the input volume between -54dB and +18 dB (relative to the original input level). There is also a - setting which represents a complete signal cut. The display shows Vol> ---dB for the - setting. 3 Press the MENU key or push the MULTI JOG dial to enter the setting and return to normal mode.
In the case of either the coaxial or optical inputs being selected, the appropriate indicator: COAXIAL or OPTICAL, lights on the right of the screen. If the analog signal is selected, the ANALOG indicator lights on the right of the screen. Analog recording level The level of the analog signals received at the ANALOG IN jacks are controlled with the INPUT controls. When recording analog signals, set the digital volume to 0 dB.

Input monitoring

When the unit is in record ready, or record mode, the input signal is output from the OUT jacks (digital and analog), allowing you to hear the input signal. 1 Press the RECORD key on the front panel or the remote control when a recordable disc is not inserted. The word Monitor appears on the display to show that the output signal is an echo of the input signal(s). 2 Exit the monitor mode by using the STOP key.

Frequency conversion

The sampling frequency for CDs is 44.1 kHz. The CDRW900 will always record (and play back) CDs at this frequency. However, if recording through a digital connection (either coaxial or optical) and the source has been recorded at a frequency other than 44.1 kHz, or is being played back at a non-standard speed using a varispeed unit (more than 1% away from the standard), the CDRW900s internal frequency converter: SRC (Sampling rate convertor) will automatically convert the incoming frequency to 44.1 kHz. To set the SRC Press the MENU key and select the SRC? option in the REC sub-menu (refer to Operation basics on
page 14). Rotate the MULTI JOG dial and select ON. Press the MENU key or push the MULTI JOG dial to enter and return to normal mode.
When the SRC function is off, receiving digital signals, the display shows the REC indicator flashing while recording or recording standby mode. The digital signals other than 44.1kHz cannot be recorded when SRC is off. The error message Not Fs44.1k! will appear on the display.

Basic recording

1 Load a recordable disc into the unit. As the disc loaded, the display shows TOC Reading., with the period flashing. 2 Press the INPUT SELECT key to select a recording source (see Input selection on page 21). If a digital source is selected, and the connection or the signal are improper, the error message D-IN UNLOCK! will appear on the display. 3 Press the RECORD key. The unit enters record ready mode, as shown by the REC and READY indicators on the display.
4 Press the PLAY key to start recording. Pressing the READY key stands by recording temporarily. To restart recording, press the READY key or PLAY key again. 5 Press the STOP key to stop recording. When recording stops, the display shows PMA Writing (Program Memory Area) flashing for a few seconds as the unit writes to the disc.
During the PMA Writing is shown, any key cannot be used. To confirm the total recording time, use the REC TIME opyion in the SYSTEM sub-menu (refer to Operation basics on page 14).

CAUTION

As the unit enters record ready mode, the display shows the Now OPC (Optimum Power Control) occasionally, as the unit prepares to record on the disc. To adjust the level of the source, following the guidelines in Input selection on page 21.
Do not vibrate the unit or turn off the power when the unit writes to the disc, otherwise, recording fails.
The red OVER indicators on the meters should never light. Unlike analog equipment, digital audio units produce extremely unpleasant sounds when distorted, and there is no headroom after the 0 mark. If recording digitally from a commercially-produced CD, the volume set in the menu should be 0 dB. This will maintain all the dynamic range of the source CD without clipping. Only boost the signal if the source is exceptionally quiet. An analog signal input at nominal level, with no cut or boost from the volume controls, is equivalent to a reading of 16 dB on the meters.
Time display while recording
When in record or record ready mode, repeated presses of the TIME key cycle through four different time modes: Elapsed track time (no display light indication) Remaining track time (REMAIN is lit in the display) Elapsed disc time (TOTAL is lit in the display) Remaining disc time (TOTAL and REMAIN are lit in the display)

Full disc

If recording a long program, when there is no space remaining on the disc for recording, as shown by the above time display, just before the end of the disc is reached, the unit starts a fade-out over four seconds (the display shows Fade Out). When the fade-out has finished, the display shows Disc Full!. Press the STOP key to exit. If the disc is a CD-RW, the final track can be erased, if required (see Erasing on page 26) and the disc then finalized. If the disc is a CD-R, it must be finalized prior to use (see Finalizing on page 25).
