Unlike analog equipment, digital audio units produce extremely
unpleasant sounds when distorted. When you record, set the digital
recording level where-during the loudest passage of music-the
recording level meter doesn't reach above 0 dB. Only boost the
recording level if the source is exceptionally quiet.
The recording level is set to 0 dB when the power is turned on.
To set the recording level:

adjustment is necessary play the loudest section of the music to be
recorded, and adjust the DIGITAL REC LEVEL. The loudest section of
music should not exceed the 0 dB mark on the display's level meter.
