Product Features

This unit can playback the outstanding sound performance in Super Audio CD. This unit has the following unique features.

D/A converter section that accurately converts DSD/CD signal into high-quality analog signal with the DEM(Dynamic Element Matching) Super DAC(CS4397).

Low-noise low-distortion filter circuit and high-speed current- feedback-type output amplifier with the differential input type HDAM.

Text information display function that can display disc titles, track titles etc. in Super Audio CD/CDs.

CD-R/CD-RW discs can be played.

About super audio

The Super Audio standard is based on Direct Stream Digital (DSD) technology. This new direct-stream digital format comprises a 1-bit system that has a digital sampling frequency that is 64 times higher than that of conventional audio CD. The results are spectacular: a frequency response of over 50k Hz and a 120 dB dynamic range over the entire audible spectrum. Mixed with as many of the original frequencies as possible, the audio information audible for human ears sounds much more natural.

All audible frequencies are, after all, embedded in the frequency range as emitted by the sound source. A better reproduction does not exist! For the first time your ears will relive reality.

Playing CD-RW discs

This unit can play back the CD-RW (ReWritable) discs as well as ordinary music CD and CD-R (Recordable) discs.

The CD-R and CD-RW discs should contain properlyrecorded TOC information so that they can be played back. With the CD recorder system, writing the TOC information in a disc is referred to as finalizing the disc. A disc cannot be recognized as a CD disc and played back unless it has been finalized properly. For details, please read the instruction manual provided with a CD recorder.

*TOC stands for Table Of Contents and contains information such as the total number of tracks and total playing time of the disc.

This unit can play only the discs recorded in the CD-DA format designed for music reproduction. Do not attempt to play a disc containing other data, such as a CD-ROM for PCs, on this unit.

As the playback of a CD-RW disc necessitates partial change of the player setup, it may take longer time for reading the TOC information than when a music CD or CD- R disc is played.

PREPARATION

Compact discs

The glossy side shining like a rainbow is the front side of the disc, and the side on which the label is printed is the back. Unlike conventional turntables for playing analog discs, the SA8260 Super Audio CD Player reads the information recorded on the disc from underneath without contacting it using a beam of laser light. Therefore, the performance of a compact disc will not degrade like conventional analog records.

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

To protect the disc, avoid placing it in the following locations:

In direct sunlight or near a source of heat like a heater.

In a place which is damp or dirty.

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

Always keep the disc surface clean.

Up to six billion data units are recorded on the front 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 direction.

Do not wipe in circumferential direction.

Do not use conventional record cleaner for analog records, as this will adversely affect the disc surface.

Store discs properly by placing them in their disc cases.

Do not attach a piece of paper or sticker on the label side of disc.

When a disc has a piece of plastic tape or rental CD label with paste protruded from the edge or when a disc has a trace of such a sticky object, do not attempt to play the disc. If such a disc is played on the CD player, impossibility of taking out the disc or other malfunction may result.

Do not use a disc with a special shape.

Do not attempt to play a disc with a special shape such as a heart-shaped disc or octagonal disc. Otherwise the equipment malfunction may result.
