Notes
It
is
not
necessary
to
adjust the REC
LEVEL
controls
when recording a source
input
from the DIGITAL
IN
jack.
When the DIGITAL
IN
jack is
not
connected,
the
incoming source
from
the
LINE
IN jack
will
be
recorded as an
analog
source
regardless
of the
INPUT
select
button
setting.
Refer
to the
VTR
instruction
manual
on
details
on
operation.
To
monitor the recording
Be sure
that the
PCM-601ESD
VIDEO IN jack
is
connected to the
VTR VIDEO
OUT
jack.
Otherwise, t
he
peak program meters
will
not
indicate
the
PCM-601ESD
monitoring
level
and monitoring can
not
be
made.
To record two
tapes
simultaneously
Connect the second VTR's
VIDEO
IN
jack
to
the
PCM-
601ESD's COPY OUT
jack.
RECORDING LEVEL
ADJUSTMENT
Adjust
the
recording level with
the
REC LEVEL controls
so that the peak program meters
do
not deflect over 0
dB.
The
red
illumination of
the
OVER indicators warns of an
overload during recording. If the indicators
illuminate
frequently, the recording
level
is
set too high
(this
will
result
in
overload
and
distorted record
ing).
As the peak
program meters
used
in
this
unit
are far more sensitive
than
conventional
VU meters,
also
be
careful
not
to
set
the recording
level
too low, as
the
signal-to-noise ratio
will
deteriorate. The
correct
recording
level
settings vary
with
the
program source you
are
recording. Generally,
adjust
the
level
to about 15 dB.
The emphasis
circuit
automatically activates during
recording and the peak program
meters indicate
the
emphasized
input
signal
levels.
Note:
The OVER indicators
may light up frequently
when a
digital
recording is made
from a CD player,
which is equipped with
the
DIGITAL OUT
jack
such as
the
CDP-552ESD or
CDP-
650ESD.
The
frequent light ing
of the OVER indications shows
that the
highest CD
level
is
being
recorded,
not
that the sound
is
distorted.
