CAUTION
During playback, turning pitch control playback
ON or OFF might cause the playback sound to skip
momentarily.
Using pitch control playback with a data CD (MP3,
WAV) sometimes causes the playback sound to skip.

Auto cue function (audio CDs only)

If the auto cue function is ON, when a track is selected, the
silence at the beginning of the track is skipped and the unit
pauses at the position where the "signal" actually starts in
the track. This allows sound to be heard immediately after
playback is started.
The auto cue function cannot be used with data CDs.
When the auto cue function is ON, even if a track
is selected during playback, playback pauses at the
position where the "signal" actually starts after the
track is selected.
You can also set the audio signal detection threshold level
auto cue level) for use with the auto cue function. In short,
this unit recognizes signals above the auto cue level as
"signal" and ignores any signal below the auto cue level as
"silence."

auto cue function ON and OFF and set the auto cue level.
