You should hear it click into position
when fully inserted.
Avoid using optical interconnects longer
than 3 meters. Optical interconnects are
available from any good audio dealer.
Connecting coaxial cords
Use a regular interconnect with a pin-
type (also called RCA or phono) plug on
each end to connect components with
digital coaxial-type jacks. These are
available from any good audio dealer.
Make sure that the plug is pushed fully
home.

4 Getting Started 4 Démarrage
6 Press CD=CD-R START (REC THIS).
The recorder automatically copies at double speed, so if
you're listening to the recording as it's being made it will
sound a little strange!
After the CD in the changer has finished playing, the
recorder will finalize the CD-R to make it playable on most
ordinary CD players (for more information on this process,
turn to page 9). This process takes just a few minutes after
the CD has been copied.
Remove the disc from the recorder before switching off.
6 Appuyez sur CD=CD-R START (REC THIS).
L’enregistreur copie automatiquement à double vitesse; si vous
écoutez l’enregistrement qui se fait, cela pourra sembler un
peu bizarre!
A la fin de la lecture du CD dans le changeur, l’enregistreur
finalisera le CD-R pour le rendre lisible sur la plupart des
lecteurs CD ordinaires (tournez la page 9 pour obtenir plus
d’informations sur ce processus). Ce processus exige seulement
quelques minutes après le copiage du CD.
Retirez le disque de l’enregistreur avant de couper l’appareil.
Recording tracks during playback
You also have the option of choosing to record the track that’s
currently playing in the changer. Make sure there is a CD-R or CD-
RW in the recorder, then simply press CD=CD-R START (REC
THIS) while the track is playing, and the CD changer will jump to
the beginning of the track and the CD-R starts recording. The
recorder stops automatically at the end of the track.
Setting the headphone level
You can set the headphone level so that the output is relatively
louder or softer.
1 Press MENU/DELETE.
2 Turn the jog dial until H.P. LEVEL appears in
the display, then press to ENTER.
The display shows the current level: H (high), or L (low).
3 Turn the jog dial (4 and ¢ on the
remote)to change the level.
4 Press the jog dial (ENTER) to confirm the
new level.
Enregistrement de plages pendant la
lecture
Vous avez la possibilité d’enregistrer la plage actuellement en cours
de lecture dans le changeur. Assurez-vous qu’un CD-R ou CD-RW se
trouve dans l’enregistreur, puis pressez sur CD=CD-R START
(REC THIS) pendant la lecture de la plage; le changeur CD
sautera au début de la plage et l’enregistrement du CD-R
commence. L’enregistreur s’arrête automatiquement à la fin de la
plage.
Réglage du niveau de casque d’écoute
Vous pouvez ajuster le niveau de sortie du casque pour le rendre
relativement plus fort ou plus doux.
1 Appuyez sur MENU/DELETE.
2 Tournez la bague Jog jusqu’à apparition de

Recording individual tracks
Here's how to copy individual tracks from any disc in the changer:
1 Load the CD(s) you want to copy tracks from
in to the CD changer.
You can use any of the three disc trays in the changer.
4 If you want the disc finalized after recording,
press FINALIZE.
The FINALIZE indicator blinks.
Remember: Finalizing a CD-R fixes the tracks on the
disc—you can't record anything else on to the disc, but it
does become playable on most ordinary CD players.
5 Press the DISC (CD SELECT on the front
panel) button for the disc you want to
record.
If you want to adjust the recording level, do so here. The
default is 0dB. See Setting the recording level on page 48
for how to adjust it.
6 Press CD=CD-R START (front panel only).
The recorder starts copying the disc. If FINALIZE is on, the
recorder will finalize the disc after copying it.
• If the button is blinking, there’s not enough space on the
disc for what you want to record. Press again to start
recording anyway, or press 7 to cancel.
4 Si vous souhaitez finaliser le disque après
l’enregistrement, appuyez sur FINALIZE.
L’indicateur FINALIZE clignote.
Rappel: La finalisation d’un CD-R fixe les plages sur le
disque — vous ne pouvez plus rien enregistrer sur le disque,
mais il devient lisible sur la plupart des lecteurs CD.
5 Appuyez sur la touche DISC (CD SELECT sur
le panneau avant) pour le disque que vous
souhaitez enregistrer.
Si vous souhaitez ajuster le niveau d’enregistrement, faites-
le ici. La valeur par défaut est 0 dB. Consultez Réglage du
niveau d’enregistrement à la page 48.
6 Appuyez sur CD =CD-R START (panneau
avant seulement).
L’enregistreur commence à copier le disque. Si FINALIZE
est activé, l’enregistreur finalisera le disque après le copiage.
• Si la touche clignote, l’espace libre sur le disque n’est pas
suffisant pour effectuer l’enregistrement souhaité. Appuyez à
nouveau pour démarrer l’enregistrement quand même, ou
bien appuyez sur 7 pour annuler.
Enregistrement de plages individuelles
Voici comment copier des plages individuelles de n’importe lequel
des disques dans le changeur.
1 Chargez le(s) CD dont vous souhaitez copier
des plages dans le changeur CD.
Vous pouvez utiliser l’un des trois tiroirs dans le changeur.

Error messages
Below is a list of error messages you may see during playback or
recording, with possible causes and remedies. If you need more
information, turn to the page indicated.
Digital synchro recording troubleshooting
If digital synchro-recording fails to operate correctly, check the
following:
1 Pause playback of the source, then
press the digital synchro button
again.
If you’re recording from a portable CD player, etc., make
sure that the shock-protection feature is switched off.
2 Start playback of the source compo-
nent once you see the SYNCHRO
indicator start to blink.
Message Cause Remedy
CHECK DISC The disc is damaged or dirty. Take out the disc and check for dust, dirt,
scratches, etc. Clean as necessary.
The disc is loaded upside down. Take out the disc and reload it label-side up.
If the same message is displayed again after
the disc is reloaded, unplug the power cord
and plug it in again. If the message is still
displayed, please contact a Pioneer
authorized service center.
CHECK
(blinking
display)
A system error occurred, perhaps due to
noise or static electricity.
Unplug the power cord and plug it in again.
If the same message is displayed again,
please contact a Pioneer authorized service
center.
E1 The disc was not loaded properly. Open the disc tray and reload the disc. Make
sure that it is seated properly in the disc
guide.
E2 The disc mechanism is not working
properly.
Open the disc tray and make sure that
nothing is obstructing it. If the problem
persists, contact a Pioneer authorized service
center.
3 If none of the above solves the prob-
lem, use manual digital recording to
record.
• Digital synchro-recording uses a digital sub-signal
contained in the source player’s digital output. Some CD/
MD/DAT/DVD players are not compatible with synchro
recording.

Messages relating to recording
Message Cause Remedy Page
Can't REC The input signal is digital-copy
protected with SCMS.
Record the source through the analog
inputs.
p.65-70
D.IN UNLOCK The digital source was interrupted. Check that the digital input cable is
connected properly and that the power of
the source player is on.
p.11
The source is not audio, or is an
incompatible format (e.g. a
CD–ROM).
Check that the source is a regular music
source.
Can't SYNC The digital source is not recognized as
CD, MD, DVD, DAT, or DCC.
If recording from a source other than CD,
MD, DVD, DAT or DCC, try using the
manual digital recording mode.
p.70
CHECK
INPUT ?
The source player was already playing
when the SYNCHRO button was
pressed.
Stop the source player. After a short time,
SYNC–1 or SYNC–ALL is displayed,
and the recorder goes into synchro–record-
pause mode.
p.67
REPAIR The recorder was switched
off/unplugged after recording without
ejecting the disc. The recorder could
not write essential recording
information onto the disc.
While REPAIR is displayed, the recorder
automatically examines the recorded area
of the disc and updates the track numbers
and recording time data. This process takes
about 40 minutes for a fully recorded disc.
Finalization or further recording is possible
once the REPAIR message disappears.
REC FULL No more recording is possible because
the available recording time of the disc
has been used up, or 99 tracks have
already been recorded on the disc.
Use another disc, or erase the
CD–RW disc.
Pro DISC The loaded disc is a CD–R or CD–RW
disc for professional use without the
Consumer Use designation.
Load a CD–R or CD–RW disc that is
designated as being for consumer use.
