RECORDING ON CASSETTE TAPES
You can record from the radio or the CD player. â¢ It should be noted that it may be unlawful to re-record pre-recorded tapes, records, or discs without the consent of the owner of copyright in the sound or video recording, broadcast or cable program and in any literary, dramatic, musical, or artistic work embodied therein. â¢ The recording level is automatically set correctly, so it is not affected by the other sound settings. Thus, during recording you can adjust the sound you are actually listening to without affecting the recording level. â¢ If recordings you have made have excessive noise or static, the unit may be too close to a TV. Increase the distance between the TV and the unit. â¢ You can only use type I tape for recording. â¢ DO NOT turn off the unit while playing back or recording a tape. The cassette deck or tapes may be damaged. â¢ DO NOT use type II and type IV tapes since the unit is not compatible with such tapes. â¢ The use of C-120 or longer tape is not recommended, since characteristic deterioration may occur and this tape easily jams in the pinch rollers and the capstans. To protect your recordings Cassettes have two small tabs on the back to protect against unexpected erasure or re-recording. To protect your recording, remove these tabs. To re-record on a protected tape, cover the holes with adhesive tape. GROUP -/+

The file name needs to be up to 20 characters. â¢ This unit recognizes files and folders on a disc in the following conditions: â up to 999 MP3 files, â up to 499 folders (including the root folder), â up to 8th layers (including the root folder). Note that the number of the folders or layers mentioned above may increase and can be played back depending on the contents recorded on the disc. â¢ It is recommended that you record your material at a 44.1-kHz sampling rate, using the 128-kbps data transfer rate. â¢ Some MP3 files or discs may not be played back because of their characteristics or recording conditions. â¢ MP3 discs require a longer readout time than normal discs because of the complexity of the folder/file configuration. â¢ MP3i and MP3 Pro are not available. â¢ The title, artist name and album name can be displayed as the ID3 TAG (ID3v1/1.1) information.
