Special Features

The player uses Atrac generation 4.5.

Jog dial: The player has a jog dial which, besides being used to access tracks and titling is also used for accessing a set up and edit menu to select many of the recording/playback options.

Hybrid pulse D/A converter: This places the converter and digital filter on the same IC to reduce signal leads and minimize interference.

Converter: The A/D converter is 20 bits.

Shock protection: A shock resistant buffer holds up to six seconds of music for shock protection and time shift.

Recording level: In addition to the standard analog level, this unit also allows you to set digital recording levels for better control over your digital recordings.

Peak hold: This function freezes the level meter display at the highest level reached by the input signal.

Track numbers: The track numbers may be set manually or automatically. When recording from an analog source auto track marking is based on the signal dropping to a specified level for 1.5 seconds or longer. The level can be set from -72 to 0 dB in 2dB steps.

Smart Space: Long silent spaces will be replaced with a 3 second blank. This feature may be turned on/off and you must be using the digital input.

Auto Cut: When the source is connected through the digital input, if no sound is input for 30 seconds it will replace the silence with 3 seconds of silence and place the unit into record pause.

Time machine recording: The last 6 seconds of data is stored in buffer so you can start recording 6 seconds before you actually engage the record function.

Updating: After recording, editing, or changing the table of contents the MD is only updated when power is turned off on the front panel or the disc is ejected. An interruption of power through the AC cord will cause everything that was changed since the last updating occurred to be lost.

Name erase: This function allows you to erase all titles on a disc simultaneously or you can erase them one by one.

Undo: This function cancels the last edit and restores the MD to the way it was prior to edit.

Automatic conversion of digital sampling rates: This allows you to convert 32 and 48kHz to the 44.1 kHz sampling rate of MD, so you can record from DSS with digital out or DAT/DCC.

Sleep function: You can select on (60 minutes) or off.

Music synch: This allows you to synchro-record with any audio equipment.

Synchro buttons and CD buttons on remote: These buttons allow you to synchro-record with a Sony CD player.
