Thank you for having the manual I needed for an older model Aiwa stero I had found on Ebay --- I wanted the Aiwa because I had tapes and cd's but I did not have a manual as to how to operate the system... I found what I needed and it has enabled me to set the system up for my enjoyment.
I wished detailed information of the JBL S310 and here I found it! Very happy with the service from this site!

â You should plug the headphones/earphones directly to i jack on the main unit. Use only headphones/earphones with stereo mini plugs. You cannot use headphones/ earphones with micro plugs.
What is an MD?
How MiniDisc works
MiniDisc (MD) comes in two types: premastered (prerecorded) and recordable (blank). Premastered MDs, recorded at music studios, can be played back almost endlessly. However, they canât be recorded on or over like cassette tapes. To record, you must use a ârecordable MDâ. Premastered MDs Premastered MDs are recorded and played like regular CDs. A laser beam focuses on the pits in the surface of the MD and reflects the information back to the lens in the recorder. The recorder then decodes the signals and plays them back as music.
Stereo mini plugs
Recordable MDs Recordable MDs, which use magnetooptical (MO) technology, can be recorded again and again. The laser inside the recorder applies heat to the MD, demagnetizing the magnetic layer of the MD. The recorder then applies a magnetic field to the layer. This magnetic field corresponds exactly to the audio signals generated by the connected source. (The north and south polarities equate to digital â1â and â0â.) The demagnetized MD adopts the polarity of the magnetic field, resulting in a recorded MD.
