5700 USER MANUAL ENG(b)
A higher setting such as -40 dB means that:
During digital SYNCHRONIZED mode recording, a relatively loud
input signal will be required to trigger the start of recording.
During A-TRACK mode recording, a fairly silent passage-with some
background hiss-will trigger an increase to the next track number
on the disc being recorded.
A lower setting such as -60 dB means that:
During digital SYNCHRONIZED mode recording, a relatively quiet
input signal will trigger the start of recording.
During A-TRACK mode recording, a very silent passage-with little
or no background hiss-will be required to trigger an increase to
the next track number on the disc being recorded.
ABOUT DIGITAL SYNCHRONIZED RECORDING
In Digital Synchronized Recording mode, recording automatically
begins when signal from an external source is received. Recording
automatically ends when the signal from an external source ends.
Digital synchronized recording is only possible when recording
through a digital input from an external source such as a CD player
or MiniDisc deck.
Note that the INCREMENT LEVEL setting (discussed in the previous
section of this manual) affects how loud an input signal must be in
order to trigger recording.
To start Digital Synchronized Recording:
1. Place a CD-R or CD-RW disc in TRAY II
2. Select the digital source (input) to be recorded by pressing INPUT
(see the Basic Recording section for more information).
3. Select the mode of track division by pressing MANUAL/AUTO.
4. Press RECORD.
5. Press SYNC 1/ALL and select SYNC 1 or SYNC ALL.
To record only one track, select SYNC 1.
To record all the tracks, select SYNC ALL.
6. After READY is displayed, press the PLAY (ENTER) [
of TRAY II.
7. Start playback on the source device. The DA-5700 will start
synchronized recording. When the source device stops playing,
the DA-5700 enters the record pause mode.
8. Press STOP [
] when you want to exit recording mode.
ABOUT RECORDING FROM YOUR TURNTABLE
Unless your turntable has a built-in preamplifier, the signal from
your turntable must be passed through a preamplifier before it is
routed into the DA-5700.
Here's how you must connect if your turntable doesn't have a built-
Turntable connected to Receiver with Built-In Phono Preamp
(use receiver's PHONO input) connected to DA-5700
Turntable connected to Standalone Phono Preamp
