or the like to remove any
roughness from the edge of the disc.
• Never stick labels on the surface of the
compact disc or mark the surface with a pencil
or pen.
• Never play a compact disc with any cellophane
tape or other glue on it or with peeling off
marks. If you try to play such a compact disc,
you may not be able to remove it from the CD
player or it may damage the CD player.

such discs may cause misoperation or
damage.
• To remove a compact disc from its storage
case, press down on the center of the case
and lift the disc out, holding it carefully by the

break the internal mechanism.
Storage
• Do not expose compact discs to direct sunlight
or any heat source.
• Do not expose compact discs to excess
humidity or dust.
• Do not expose compact discs to direct heat
from heaters.
Cleaning
• To remove fingermarks and dust, use a soft
cloth and wipe in a straight line from the center
of the compact disc to the circumference.
• Do not use any solvents, such as commercially
available cleaners, anti-static spray, or thinner
to clean compact discs.
• After using special compact disc cleaner, let
the compact disc dry off well before playing it.

English
4. DCP
The control panel can be detached to prevent
theft. When detaching the control panel, store it
in the DCP (DETACHABLE CONTROL PANEL)
case to prevent scratches.
We recommend taking the DCP with you when
leaving the car.
Attaching the DCP
1. Place the DCP to the SLOPING CONSOLE,
adjusting the metal connecters on DCP and
the SLOPING CONSOLE.
2. Press the DCP until it clicks into the
SLOPING CONSOLE.
Removing the DCP
1. Turn off the power.
2. Press the [Q] button to open the DCP.
3. Move the DCP detaching slider to the
“RELEASE” side.
\
4. Push and slide the DCP upward to remove.
CAUTION
• If the slider is on the [RELEASE] side and
the DCP is not locked into place, it may fall
out from vibration of the car. This can break
the DCP, so after removing it, either firmly
reattach it on the unit or put it in its DCP
case.
• The connector connecting the unit and the
DCP is an extremely important part. Be
careful not to damage it by pressing on it
with fingernails, screwdrivers, etc.
∗ The SLOPING CONSOLE without DCP
closes automatically in a few seconds.
Note:
• If the DCP is dirty, wipe off the dirt with a soft, dry
cloth only.
CAUTION
• Do not try to remove or attach while
driving.
• The DCP can easily be damaged by shocks.
After removing it, be careful not to drop it
or subject it to strong shocks.
• This DCP is equipped with a highly
advanced device. In order to make the best
performance, it is required to get an
electrical calibration by authorised service
shop. Please consult with your Clarion
dealer or distributor.

RDS (Radio Data System)
AF function
This unit has a built-in RDS decoder system that
supports broadcast stations transmitting RDS
data.
This system can display the name of the
broadcast station being received (PS), and can
automatically switch to the broadcast station
with the best reception as you move over long
distances (AF switching).
If a traffic announcement or programme type is
broadcasted from an RDS station, this
broadcast is received no matter what mode you
are in.
Also, if EON information is received, this
information enables automatic switching of other
preset stations on the same network and
interruption of the station being received with
traffic information from other stations (TP). This
function is not available in some areas.
When using the RDS function, always set the
radio to the FM mode.

When the same programme is broadcasted by
both RDS and DAB, and this function is ON, this
unit automatically switches to receive the
broadcast with the better reception.
• This function only operates when the DAH923

What is MP3?
MP3 is an audio compression method and
classified into audio layer 3 of MPEG standards.
This audio compression method has penetrated
into PC users and become a standard format.
This MP3 features the original audio data
compression to about 10 percent of its initial
size with a high sound quality. This means about
10 music CDs can be recorded on a CD-R disc
or CD-RW disc to allow a long listening time

Setting the ADF
• ADF is the abbreviation of Anti Distortion
Filter.
The adopted “Liveliness Enhancement Filter”
and “Sound Tone Compensation” functions
allow well-modulated realistic playback without
affecting the characteristics of the original sound
tone.
This unit is provided with 4 types of sound tone
effects stored in memory. Select the one you
prefer.

ADF-2 : Suitable for separate speakers
ADF-3 : Suitable for co-axial speakers
USER : This setting can be adjusted by the
user to his or her individual preference.

• The factory default setting is “OFF”.
Notes:
• As the volume changes when ADF is switched,
switch ADF with the volume and “SW VOLUME”
(sub-woofer) and “CTR VOLUME” (center
speaker) turned down as far as possible.
• On some speaker systems, sufficient effect
sometimes cannot be obtained. If this happens,
adjust the volume.
• When ADF is set to “USER”, “1”, “2” or “3”, the

Q (Q curve selection)
Sets one of 1, 3, 5, 7, or 20 as the sharpness of
the Q curve.
● Compensation
There is no need to compensate frequency
characteristics if they are flat (no peaks or
valleys) when you have measured the frequency
characteristics with a measuring device.
However, sometimes the frequency
characteristics rise or fall in some places. If this
happens, the frequency characteristics must be
compensated. Create a frequency curve having
characteristics that are opposite to the center
frequency of parts where the characteristics rise
and fall to cancel out these peaks and values,
and make the frequency characteristics as flat
as possible.
Making the frequency characteristics as flat as
possible is called “compensation”.
On this unit, frequency characteristics can be
compensated by P.EQ (Parametric Equalizer).
