This unit is designed to allow digital output when the
rear panel's DIGITAL OUT switch is set to ON.
The following button functions, however, will not oper-
ate in the DIGITAL OUT mode:
TER TEMPO. In the event that such non-functioning keys
are pressed, the display will show D-OUT ON.
Even if these functions are currently operating,they will
be non-functional when the Digital Out switch is set to
ON. (Cue Point memory alone will continue to be effec-
tive after Digital Out is reset to OFF.) In addition, other
control functions, such as relay play and fader start will
also not function when Digital Out is set to ON, and Auto
Cue will enter pause at the start of the playback track.
Any FL frames current displayed will be erased. In nor-
mal mode, when the Play/Pause button is pressed dur-
ing playback, the frame's interrupted sound will be out-
put, but when the same operation is attempted in the
digital out mode, the frame's interrupted sound will not
be output (during pause, no sound is output).
Also, after a cue point is memorized in normal mode, if
the DIGITAL OUT switch is set to ON, the analog output
will be somewhat delayed from the digital output.

Precautions Regarding Connections

¶ When connecting a cable to the DIGITAL OUT

jack, be sure the power is turned off both to this
unit and to the other unit (DAT, amplifier, etc.).

¶ Be sure that the other component's gain and vol-

ume control dials are set to their lowest settings
before switching this unit's DIGITAL OUT switch
to ON.
