INTRODUCTION  3
Introduction
Thank you for choosing Harman Kardon.
The CDR 30 CD Player/Recorder is a unique
product, designed not only to playback your
existing library of compact discs, but also to
record compact discs from either analog or digi-
tal programs. You may feed signals (for record-
ing) to the CDR 30 from external sources such
as an A/V receiver, a tuner, tape deck or a CD
player, or you may simply place a CD in one
deck, and make a copy using a recordable CD in
the other deck.
Designed and engineered by Harman Kardon,
the CDR 30 is among the first audio CD
recorders with x4 speed capability. This means
that it will take only 15 minutes to copy a 
60-minute disc. The CDR 30 is also the first 
CD-R/RW audio recorder to offer MP3 playback,
dubbing of MP3 discs to conventional CD discs,
and HDCD
®
playback.
The CDR 30 not only records with the highest
speed and quality available but it is also an
audiophile CD player. Through the use of audio-
phile-grade digital-to-analog converters (DAC’s),
the CDR 30’s performance rivals the most
sophisticated high-end players. Should you wish
to bypass the internal DAC’s and use an external
digital processor, coax and optical digital outputs
are available. Thanks to the CDR 30’s dual-tray
design, you may even play two separate discs at
the same time, for parties or multi-room applica-
tions. To make CD playback more enjoyable, the
CDR 30 also features a wide range of program
and repeat functions.
Since CD recorders and MP3 are a relatively new
technology, this may be your first CD-R product.
Although CD recorders resemble play-only CD
machines in many ways, there are some impor-
tant differences between a standard CD and a
CD-R. In addition, making a CD-R recording is
also a different process than what you may be
familiar with for making audio tape or cassette
recordings. For that reason, we encourage you to
read through this manual so that you are fully
acquainted with the way CD recording works.
This small investment in your time will pay major
dividends in the enjoyment that will result from
proper use of the CDR 30.
If you have additional questions about this 
product – its installation or operation – that are
not answered in this manual, please contact
your dealer, who is your best source of local
information.

Important Information About CD
Recording
In order to get the most enjoyment from your
new CD-R recorder, please pay special attention
to the following sections of the manual that pro-
vide information about the special features and
capabilities of CD Recorders.
■ The CDR 30 plays all standard CD audio discs
but for recording, the CDR 30 uses special
CD-R and CD-RW discs designed only for
audio use. CD-R discs designed for computer
use will not work in the CDR 30. See page 14
for more information on which types of discs
are used with the CDR 30.
■ The last step in making a CD-R and CD-RW
recording is the finalization process. Unless
this step is properly done, the disc will not
work in other players. See page 24 for infor-
mation on finalizing discs.
■ Once finalized, CD-R discs will play in any CD
player, but CD-RW discs will only play in the
CDR 30 and certain other machines. Check
the specifications of your CD player if you
have questions about compatibility with 
CD-RW discs.
■ As with all CD players, except those designed
specifically for portable use, you should never
move a CD player while there is a disc inside
one of the decks. NEVER move the CDR 30
until discs have been removed from both
decks.
SAFETY INFORMATION
Safety Information
Verify Line Voltage Before Use
Your CDR 30 has been designed for use with 
220- to 240 Volt AC current. Connection to a
line voltage other than that for which it is
intended can create a safety and fire hazard and
may damage the unit.
If you have any questions about the voltage
requirements for your specific model, or about
the line voltage in your area, contact your selling
dealer before plugging the unit into a wall out-
let.
Handle the AC Power Cord Gently
When disconnecting the power cord from an AC
outlet, always pull the plug, never pull the cord.
If you do not intend to use the unit for any con-
siderable length of time, disconnect the plug
from the AC outlet.
Do Not Open the Cabinet
There are no user-serviceable components inside
this product. Opening the cabinet may present a
shock hazard, and any modification to the prod-
uct will void your guarantee. If water or any
metal object such as a paper clip, wire or a
staple accidentally falls inside the unit, discon-
nect it from the AC power source immediately,
and consult an authorized service station.
CAUTION: The CDR 30 uses a laser system. To
prevent direct exposure to the laser beam, do
not open the cabinet enclosure or defeat any of
the safety mechanisms provided for your protec-
tion. DO NOT STARE INTO THE LASER BEAM. To
ensure proper use of this product, please read
this owner’s manual carefully and retain it for
future use. Should the unit require maintenance
or repair, please contact your local Harman
Kardon service station. Refer servicing to quali-
fied personnel only.
Installation Location
■ Place the unit on a firm and and level surface
that can support the weight of the product.
■ Make certain that proper space is provided
both above and below the unit for ventilation.
If this product will be installed in a cabinet or
other enclosed area, make certain that there
is sufficient air movement within the cabinet.
■ Do not place the unit directly on a carpeted
surface.
■ Avoid installation in extremely hot or cold
locations, or an area that is exposed to direct
sunlight or heating equipment.
■ Avoid moist or humid locations.
■ Do not obstruct the ventilation slots on the
top of the unit, or place objects directly over
them.
Cleaning
When the unit gets dirty, wipe it with a clean,
soft dry cloth. If necessary, wipe it with a soft
cloth dampened with mild soapy water, then a
fresh cloth with clean water. Wipe dry immedi-
ately with a dry cloth. NEVER use benzene,
aerosol cleaners, thinner, alcohol or any other
volatile cleaning agent. Do not use abrasive
cleaners, as they may damage the finish of metal
parts.
Moving the Unit
IMPORTANT NOTE: 
To avoid damage to the
CDR 30 which may not be covered by the war-
ranty, be certain that all discs are removed from
the unit before it is moved. Once the CDR 30 is
installed, discs may be left in the unit when it is
turned off, but the unit should NEVER be moved
with discs left in either deck.
Important Information for the User
This equipment generates, uses and can radiate
radio frequency energy and, if not installed and
used in accordance with the instructions, may
cause harmful interference to radio communica-
tion. However, there is no guarantee that harm-
ful interference will not occur in a particular
installation. If this equipment does cause harm-
ful interference to radio or television reception,
which can be determined by turning the equip-
ment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to
correct the interference by one or more of the
following measures:
■ Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
■ Increase the separation between the equip-
ment and receiver.
■ Connect the equipment into an outlet on a
circuit different from that to which the receiv-
er is connected.
■ Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV
technician for help.
Unpacking
The carton and shipping materials used to pro-
tect your new CD recorder during shipment were
specially designed to cushion it from shock and
vibration. We suggest that you save the carton
and packing materials for use in shipping if you
move, or should the unit ever need repair.
If you do not wish to save the packaging materi-
als, please note that the carton and other sec-
tions of the shipping protection are recyclable.
Please respect the environment and discard
those materials at a local recycling center.
