This system can play back a standard CD, CD-R/RW in the CD format and CD-R/RW
with MP3 or WMA files, but cannot record on them. Some audio CD-R and CD-RW
discs may not be playable due to the state of the disc or the device that was used for

MP3:
MP3 is a form of compression. It is an acronym which stands for MPEG
Audio Layer 3.
MP3 is a type of audio code which is processed by significant
compression from the original audio source with very little loss in
sound quality.
z This system supports MPEG 1 Layer 3 and VBR files.
z During VBR file playback, time counter in the display may differ from its actual
playback time.
z Bitrate which is supported by MP3 is 32 ~ 320 kbps.

„ Before transporting the unit
„ Care of compact discs
Remove the CD from the unit. Make sure there is no CD in the disc tray. Then, set the
unit to the power stand-by mode. Carrying the unit with disc left inside can damage
the unit.
Compact discs are fairly resistant to damage, however mistracking can occur due to
an accumulation of dirt on the disc surface. Follow the guidelines below for maximum
enjoyment from your CD collection and player.
z Do not write on either side of the disc, particularly the non-label side from which
signals are read. Do not mark this surface.
z Keep your discs away from direct sunlight, heat, and excessive moisture.
z Always hold the CDs by the edges. Fingerprints, dirt, or water on the CDs can
cause noise or mistracking. If a CD is dirty or does not play properly, clean it with
a soft, dry cloth, wiping straight out from the centre, along the radius.
