CONTROLLER
17 (FAR SIDE)
The radio section of your new sound system does not require any
maintenance. We recommend you keep this manual for reference
on the many features found in this unit as well as how to set the
clock.
The compact disc player section also requires no routine maintenance, but proper understanding of its use and handling will help you
obtain maximum enjoyment of its capabilities. The following points
should be observed:
l When cleaning the interior of the vehicle, do not get water or
cleaning fluids on the unit.
l The CD player is a precision instrument and will not operate
properly in extreme hot or cold. In case of such conditions, wait
until the interior temperature of the vehicle reaches a normal
temperature before using the player.
l If the temperature inside the player gets too hot, a protective
circuit will automatically stop play of the disc. In this case, allow
the unit to cool off before operating the player again.
l Never insert anything other than a 5" (12 cm) compact disc into
the player as the mechanism can be damaged by foreign objects.
l Do not attempt to use 3" (8 cm) CD-Single discs in this unit, either
with or without an adaptor, as damage to the player and/or disc
may occur. Such damage will not be covered by the Warranty on
this product.
l When not using the disc player, always remove the compact disc.
l When the vehicle warms up during cold weather or under damp
conditions, moisture may condense on the lens of the disc player.

Should this occur, the player will not operate properly until the
moisture has evaporated.
l The unit is designed with a vibration dampening CD mechanism to
minimize interruption of disc play due to normal vibration in a
moving vehicle. When driving on very rough roads,
however,occasional sound skips may occur. This will not scratch
or damage the disc and normal play will resume when the rough
conditions cease.
HANDLING COMPACT DISCS
Dirt, dust, scratches, and warpage can cause skips in the playback
and deterioration of sound quality. Please follow these guidelines
to take care of your compact discs:
l
l
l
l
l
l
Use only compact discs with the mark
.
Fingerprints, dust, and dirt should be carefully wiped off the disc’s
playing surface (shiny side) with a soft cloth. Wipe in a straight
motion from the inside to the outside of the disc.
Never use chemicals such as record sprays, household cleaners
or thinner to clean compact discs. Such chemicals can
irreparably damage the disc’s surface.
Discs should be kept in their storage cases when not in use.
Do not expose discs to direct sunlight, high temperatures or high
humidity for extended periods.
Do not stick paper, tape, or labels on the disc surfaces nor write
on them with any type of marker.
NOTES ON DISCS
Attempting to use non-standard shape discs (e.g.; square, star,
heart) may damage the unit. Be sure to use round-shape CDs only
in this unit.

NOTES ON CD-Rs (Recordable CDs)/CD-RWs (Rewriteable
CDs):
1. Be sure to use discs with the following marks only for play
in this unit:
.
2. The unit cannot play a CD-R or CD-RW that is not finalized.
(Please refer to the manual of your CD-R/CD-RW software
for more information on the finalization process.)
3. Depending on the recording status, conditions of the disc
and the equipment used for the recording, some CD-Rs/
CD-RWs may not be played on this unit.
RELIABLE PLAYBACK:
To ensure more reliable playback, please note the following
recommendations:
1. Use CD-RWs with speed 1x to 4x.
2. Use CD-Rs with speed 1x to 8x, and write with speed 1x to
2x.
3. Do not play a CD-RW which has been written on more than
5 times.
NOTES ON MULTI-SESSION DISCS:
If the first track of the first session is audio CD data, then the unit
will play only the audio CD data.
ELECTRONIC SKIP PROTECTION (ESP)
The CD Player in this unit is equipped with Electronic Skip
Protection (ESP) circuits. This capability enables the CD Player to
project disc play approximately 10 seconds ahead of its current play
position. As a result, if a severe road bump is encountered during
Player operation, play of the current track will not be interrupted, or
result in a skip.
