There is a PS-2 (also called IBM type) input on the front panel of the player for a keyboard. Using a keyboard will make naming discs much faster. You can control a second Sony CD changer with this unit if it: (1) Has a control A1 (or Control A1II) Jack and (2) The command mode of the unit can be set to CD3 The 2nd Unit's RCA outputs are connected to the RCA inputs of this unit (marked 2ND CD) and the control 1 jack is connected between both units. When the CD players are connected in this way you can load the Disc Memos of the second CD player to this unit's memory if the second player has Disc Memo. You can label the discs of the second player using this unit or change the discs memos which you load from the second player.
When you do this you are using this player's memory, so you can not display them on the second CD player display. A total of up to 800 Disc Memos of up to 20 characters each may be loaded.
The controls of both units will function. When you press the play button on either unit the operating player stops and the resting player starts.
Play changes from player to player after each track. The player starts play without a break in sound immediately after the current player ends play (skips lead-in portion and starts playing from where sound actually begins). Play changes from player to player after each track OR at a specified interval of 30, 60 or 90 seconds.
When players change the sound output of both players is mixed, with one player fading out and the other fading in. The player stores four types of custom file information for each disc. Disc Name: Label discs with names up to 20 characters. Delete Bank: Deletes unwanted tracks from CDs.Group file: Group discs in up to eight groups. Each disc can only be in one group. Group files can be used in continuous, shuffle or repeat play. Each group can be given a group memo of up to 13 characters. Artist File: Classify discs according to an artist name. Are stored in the player's memory. If the player is not used for about one month you will lose custom file information. Custom files can be erased one at a time or all at once.
CD-Text information can not be replaced by a Disc memo file. Deleted tracks are skipped even in Shuffle play and program mode. All deleted tracks can be recovered simultaneously.
You can create up to three programs each of which can contain up to 32 steps (track or entire disc). When playing a CD with CD Text the display will show you the current disc title, artist name and track title if it is recorded on the CD. A CD-Text indicator lights up on the display whenever the player detects a CD with CD-Text information.If the CD Text information is available in various languages, you can select the language that the information is displayed in. There is a jog dial on the unit for quick selection of discs and a second jog dial on the unit for track selection.
