How to Record

SCMS (Serial Copy Management System)

The SCMS copy management system is designed to prevent consumer recorders from making unlimited digital copies of a digital source. Most consumer CD recorders will not make a digital copy when SCMS is present in the digital source, while a professional CD recorder (CDR300) will act differently.

If the digital source being recorded on the CDR300 contains no SCMS information then the copy will also not include SCMS. If the digital source material being recorded on the CDR300 contains SCMS information then the copy will also include SCMS.

The SCMS copy management system does not apply to analog source material.

How to Record continued

AUTO TRACK

When recording with AUTO TRACK ON the CDR300 will automatically increment tracks.

If AUTO TRACK is ON and the source of recording is a digital source that has tracks, such as a CD player connected to the AUX IN jacks or a source input via the DIGITAL IN jack (CD/MD), those tracks will be included in your recording. This source data is usually found only in an SPDIF format digital connection.

If AUTO TRACK is ON and the source is digital (without track data) or analog, the CDR300 will use a silence gap to mark a track. When the source audio signal drops below -80dB for digital, or -40dB for analog, for 3 seconds or more and then rises to above those levels, the CDR300 will mark a new track and continue recording.

You can manually introduce a new track when AUTO TRACK is ON or OFF by pushing TR INC on the remote.

How to turn AUTO TRACK ON or OFF

6The display returns to AUTO TRACK.

AUTO STOP

When recording with AUTO STOP ON the CDR300 will automatically stop after a period of silence. The silence will be recorded onto the last track of the recording session.

When recording with AUTO STOP ON from an analog source, the recording will stop after recording 20 seconds of silence (a signal lower than -40dB). When recording with AUTO STOP ON from a digital source (without track and stop data), the recording will stop after recording 4 seconds of silence (a signal lower than -80dB).

How to Finalize

Finalizing is writing the TOC (table of contents) on a disc so a CD player can recognize the number of tracks, the total time for each track, and their location on the disc. A recorded disc must be finalized to playback on a standard CD player. Once finalized a CD-R disc can be played on CD players that support CD-R playback. CD-RW discs can only be played on CD players that support CD-RW playback. Consult your CD player owner's manual to confirm supported formats.

Finalizing is necessary to:

be able to play a recorded CD-R or CD-RW disc on a CD player

prevent further recording on a disc

avoid erasing tracks on a CD-RW disc

record text information onto a disc you record

Notes:

A finalized CD-R disc can never be recorded onto again.

A finalized CD-RW disc can be unfinalized for more recording.

The CDR300 can play back unfinalized CD-R or CD-RW discs.

SYNC REC+FINAL mode automatically finalizes.

About CD discs

The CDR300 can play CD, CD-R, or CD-RW discs and can record on CD-R or CD-RW discs.

CD-R (record once)

CD-R discs are only able to be recorded onto a single time but will playback in most CD players.

CD-R discs can be recognized by the following logos:

Recordable Recordable

CD-RW (multiple recording)

CD-RW discs are able to be recorded onto many times but will only playback in CD players offering CD-RW compatibility. Products that offer CD-RW compatibility are available from Marantz, Marantz Professional, and Superscope. Please contact your dealer for more information on these products.

CD-RW discs can be recognized by the following logos:

Notes:

Some DVD players cannot playback CD-R discs and CD-RW discs because of laser power differences.

Some CD players may be able to playback finalized CD-RW discs.

Some CD players can not play finalized CD-R discs because of the low reflectivity of such discs.

Which discs to use:

The CDR300 is able to record onto any 1X or 2X compatible CD-R and CD-RW disc, including discs for Consumer use and Professional (computer) discs.

The CDR300 records according to the Orange Book specification. Every CDR disc sold should be according to the Orange Book specification and therefore compatible with the CDR300.

In practice however, the quality of the recording depends on the match between the disc used and the writing strategy of the recorder. At 1X speed (stand alone audio) the match between disc and recorder is

important. Higher recording speeds are less critical in terms of recording quality.

Consumer CD Recorders can only record on CD-R Audio discs and those discs are optimized for single speed automatically. Professional CD Recorders can use both Audio and Data discs. When using Data discs, one should take care to use discs with a good single speed compatibility.

Recording Capacity:

Discs with higher capacity than 74 minutes (80 minutes) are out of the Orange Book standard and may perform below your expectations.

Compact disc care

The glossy side is the record side of the disc, and matted (dull) side is the label side.

Handle discs carefully so as not to damage or scratch the record side.

Avoid placing discs in the following locations:

In direct sunlight or near a source of heat such as a heater.

In a place that is damp or dirty.

In a place which could be exposed to rain, such as near a window.

Disc cleaning

Always keep the disc surface clean. Up to six billion data units are recorded on the record side of the disc. When cleaning the disc surface always be sure to use a special compact disc cleaner and wipe as shown below.

Wipe in a radial

Do not wipe in

direction.

circumferential

 

direction.

Do not use record cleaner, it will adversely affect the disc surface.

Store discs in their disc cases.

Do not attach a piece of paper or sticker to the label side of the disc. When a disc has a piece of plastic

- 31 -

tape or rental CD label with paste protruding from the edge or when a disc has a trace of such a sticky object, do not attempt to play the disc. The disc may be impossible to take out, or another malfunction may result.

Write only on the printed side of a CD-R or CDRW disc, and only with a soft

felt-tipped pen.

Do not attempt to record a disc with a special shape.

Do not attempt to play a disc with a special shape such as an octagonal or heart shaped disc. Equipment malfunction may result.

CD text

CD text, when present, provides text information such as the CD title, artist, track titles, and track artists.

The CDR300 can record text information on an unfinalized CD-R or CD-RW disc that you record.

CD text during playback

When a disc is inserted in the CDR drive the CDR300 automatically detects if a disc has text information and automatically displays the CD title. The CDR300 can display 14 characters, if the text information is longer than that the text automatically scrolls from right to left.

Recording CD text

Before finalalization of a CD you can enter text information. Only the CD title and track titles can be entered.
