Temperature
Correct Handling
Do not operate your unit in ambient temperature above +60°C
(+140°F) or below -10°C (+14°F).
Do not drop the disc while handling. Hold the disc so you will
not leave fingerprints on the surface. Do not affix tape, paper, or
gummed labels to the disc. Do not write on the disc.
Moisture Condensation
CORRECT
You may notice the disc playback sound wavering due to
condensation. If this happens, remove the disc from the player
and wait about an hour for the moisture to evaporate.
Damaged Disc
Do not attempt to play cracked, warped, or damaged discs.
Playing a bad disc could severely damage the playback
mechanism.
INCORRECT
CORRECT
Maintenance
If you have problems, do not attempt to repair the unit yourself.
Return it to your Alpine dealer or the nearest Alpine Service
Station for servicing.
Disc Cleaning
New Discs
When a newly purchased disc is inserted into the changer
magazine, the disc may fail to play after initial loading.
This is caused by small bumps around the centre hole and outside
of the disc, which prevent stable loading into the correct position.
To remove the bumps, rub the inside edge of the hole and outside
edge of the disc with a ball-point pen or other such instrument,
then insert the disc again.
Fingerprints, dust, or soil on the surface of the disc could cause
the DVD changer to skip. For routine cleaning, wipe the playing
surface with a clean, soft cloth from the centre of the disc to the
outer edge. If the surface is heavily soiled, dampen a clean, soft
cloth in a solution of mild neutral detergent before cleaning the
disc.
• The mechanism automatically prevents this type of disc from
playing as a protective measure. This is not an indication of faulty
operation.

Tips for making your own CDs
Using DVD-Rs/DVD-RWs/DVD+Rs/DVD+RWs
The DHA-S690 plays DVD Video, DVD Audio, Video CD,
Audio CD, DivX® and has a built in MP3/WMA/AAC decoder.
• This unit is compatible discs recorded in the DVD-Video and
DVD-VR (DVD-R/DVD-RW only) mode.
• Note that discs not finalised (processed to enable to play on
playback-only DVD players) cannot be played on this DVD
changer.
• Some discs may not play back, depending on the recording
device and disc format.
• Discs or files utilizing copy protection, may not be playable.
Some recording systems may not properly format copied files
to enable proper playback.
• In the following cases, the disc may not play on this unit:
discs recorded by certain DVD recorders, certain irregular
discs, flawed discs, dirty discs, when the pickup lens of this
DVD changer is dirty, or when moisture condensation has
occurred inside the unit.
• Be sure to follow all cautions included with your DVD-Rs/
DVD-RWs/DVD+Rs/DVD+RWs discs.
• Do not put stickers, seals, or tape on the label side of DVD-Rs/
DVD-RWs/DVD+Rs/DVD+RWs.
• Compared to the regular discs, DVD-Rs/DVD-RWs/DVD+Rs/
DVD+RWs are more affected by heat, moisture, and direct
sunlight. If left in a car, etc., damage may occur and it might
not play on this unit.
• The operable temperature range for disc playback is as
follows:
DVD-R/DVD-RW: -25 ~ +70°C
DVD+R/DVD+RW: +5 ~ +55°C
The following information is designed to help you create your
own music CDs (either Audio CD or MP3/WMA/AAC encoded
CD-R/RW files).
What is the difference between an Audio and MP3/WMA/
AAC CD?
An Audio CD is the same format as the commercial CDs you buy
in the store (also known as CD-DA). MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio Layer
3)/WMA (Windows Media Audio)/AAC (Advanced Audio
Coding) is a data file that uses a compression scheme to reduce
the size of the music file.*
Hybrid Audio CD and Data (MP3/WMA/AAC) CD-R/RW
discs:
The DHA-S690 can read either sector on the disc. Choose
CD-DA to play the CD audio section or MP3/WMA/AAC to play
the MP3/WMA/AAC section.*
Multi session CD-R/RW:
Once a recording has been stopped, this is considered one
session. If the disc is not closed (finalised), additional data may
be added. Once this additional data has been recorded, this
becomes a “multi-session” CD. The DHA-S690 can only read
multi-session DATA Formatted discs (MP3/WMA/AAC files Not Audio CD files).
Properly formatted MP3/WMA/AAC Discs:
Use ISO9660 formatting to insure proper playback. You may use
standard ISO naming Level 1 (8.3 DOS standard), Level 2 (32
characters) or Joliet (Windows or Macintosh long filenames) file
naming conventions*.
* Please consult the Owner’s manual for additional information.
On handling compact discs (CD/CD-R/CD-RW)
•
•
•
•
•
•
Do not touch the surface.
Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight.
Do not affix stickers or labels.
Clean the disc when it is dusty.
Make sure that the disc is smooth and flat.
Do not use commercially available disc accessories.
Do not leave the disc in the car or the unit for a long time.
Never expose the disc to direct sunlight.
Heat and humidity may damage the disc and you may not be
able to play it again.

capable of compressing audio data at extremely high ratios,
reducing the size of music files to as much as one-tenth their
original size. This is achieved while still maintaining near CD
quality. The MP3 format realizes such high compression ratios
by eliminating the sounds that are either inaudible to the
human ear or masked by other sounds.
What is AAC?
AAC is the abbreviation for “Advanced Audio Coding”, and is
a basic format of audio compression used by MPEG2 or
MPEG4.
What is WMA?
WMA, or “Windows Media™ Audio”, is compressed audio
data.
WMA is similar to MP3 audio data and can achieve CD quality
sound with small file sizes.
Playback of the selected file starts.
• If a folder name or file name exceeds the display range, the last
character that appears in the display range is displayed as “~”
(tilda accent).
• DivX folder/file list is also displayed.

Method for creating MP3/WMA/AAC files
Audio data is compressed using software with MP3/WMA/AAC
codecs. For details on creating MP3/WMA/AAC files, refer to
the user’s manual for that software.
MP3/WMA/AAC files that can be played back by this device
have the following file extensions:
MP3: “mp3”
WMA: “wma” (ver. 2, 7 and 8 are supported)
AAC: “m4a”, “aac”
There are many different versions of the AAC format. Confirm
that the software being used conforms to the acceptable
formats listed above. It’s possible that the format may be
unplayable even though the extension is valid. Playback of AAC
files encoded by iTunes version 4.8 or earlier is supported.
Formats supported
This device supports CD-ROM XA, Mixed Mode CD,
Enhanced CD (CD-Extra) and Multi-Session.
This device cannot correctly play back discs recorded with
Track At Once or packet writing.
Order of files
Files are played back in the order that the writing software
writes them to the disc. Therefore, the playback order may not
be what is expected. Verify the writing order in the software’s
documentation. The playback order of the folders and files is
as follows.

This device supports ID3 tag v1 and v2, and WMA tag.
If tag data is in an MP3/WMA/AAC file, this device can display
the title (track title), artist name, and album name ID3 tag/
WMA tag data.
This device can only display single-byte alphanumeric
characters (up to 30 for ID3 tags and up to 15 for WMA tags)
and the underscore. For non-supported characters, the
display is blank.
The tag information may not be correctly displayed,
depending on the contents.
Producing MP3/WMA/AAC discs
MP3/WMA/AAC files are prepared, then written to a CD-R or
CD-RW (DVD-R/DVD-RW) using CD-R writing software. A disc
can hold up to 4,096 files/256 folders (including Root Folders).
Playback may not be performed if a disc exceeds the
limitations described above.
Media supported
The media that this device can play back are CD-ROMs,
CD-Rs, CD-RWs, DVD-R and DVD-RW.
Corresponding File Systems
This device supports discs formatted with ISO9660 Level 1 or
Level 2.
Under the ISO9660 standard, there are some restrictions to
remember.
The maximum nested folder depth is 8 (including the root
directory). The number of characters for a folder/file name is
limited.
Valid characters for folder/file names are letters A-Z (all
caps), numbers 0-9, and ‘_’ (underscore).
This device also can play back discs in Joliet, Romeo, etc.,
and other standards that conform to ISO9660. However,
sometimes the file names, folder names, etc., are not
displayed correctly.

Folder MP3/WMA/AAC/DivX®/JPEG/ASF/WAV File
* The folder No./folder Name will not be displayed if no file is
contained in the folder.
Terminology
Bit rate
This is the “sound” compression rate specified for encoding. The
higher the bit rate, the higher the sound quality, but also the larger
the files.
Sampling rate
This value shows how many times per second the data is sampled
(recorded). For example, music CDs use a sampling rate of 44.1
kHz, so the sound is sampled (recorded) 44,100 times per second.
The higher the sampling rate, the higher the sound quality, but also
the larger the volume of data.
Encoding
Converting music CDs, WAVE (AIFF) files, and other sound files
into the specified audio compression format.
Tag
Song information such as track title, artist names, album names,
etc., written into MP3/WMA/AAC files.
Root folder
The root folder (or root directory) is found at the top of the file
system. The root folder contains all folders and files. It is created
automatically for all burned discs.

Information
About DVDs
Music CDs and DVDs have grooves (tracks) in which the digital data
is recorded. The data is represented as microscopic pits recorded into
the track – these pits are read by a laser beam to play the disc. On
DVDs, the density of the tracks and pits is twice that of CDs, so
DVDs can contain more data in less space.
CDs
Minimum pit
length 0.9 µm
1.2 mm
Track pitch 1.6 µm
DVDs
Minimum pit
length 0.9 µm
0.6 mm
0.6 mm
Track pitch 0.74 µm
A 12 cm disc can contain one movie or about four hours of music.
In addition, DVDs provide sharp picture quality with vivid colours
thanks to a horizontal resolution of over 500 lines (compared to less
than 300 for VHS tape). With the addition of an optional, digital audio
processor (PXA-H701, etc.), you can recreate the power and presence
of a movie theatre with Dolby Digital 5.1-channel Surround.
In addition, DVDs offer a variety of functions.
• Multiple audio* (page 14)
Movies can be recorded in up to eight languages. The
desired language can be selected from the remote control.
• Subtitles function* (page 15)
Movies can include subtitles in up to 32 languages. The
desired subtitle language can be selected from the remote
control.
• Multi angle function* (page 14)
When the DVD contains a movie shot from multiple angles,
the desired angle can be selected from the remote control.
• Multi story function*
With this function, a single movie includes various story
lines. You can select different story lines to view various
versions of the same movie.
Operation differs from disc to disc. Story line selection
screens including instructions appear during the movie. Just
follow the instructions.
* The functions, audio languages, subtitle languages, angles, etc.,
differ from disc to disc. For details, refer to the disc’s instructions.

Terminology
Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is a digital audio compression technology
developed by Dolby Laboratories that allows large quantities
of audio data to be efficiently recorded on discs. It is
compatible with audio signals from mono (1 channel) all the
way up to 5.1-channel surround sound. The signals for the
different channels are completely independent, and since the
sound is high quality digital there is no loss of sound quality.
* The separately sold digital audio processor (PXA-H701, etc.) is
required to enjoy full 5.1-channel surround sound.
The DHA-S690 performs Dolby Digital decoding when it
outputs analog audio signals; 2-channel audio, not 5.1channel.
Dolby Pro Logic
Dolby Pro Logic is the technology used to decode
programmes encoded in Dolby Surround. Pro Logic decoding
will provide you with four channels of sound (front left/right,
centre and monaural rear surround) from a 2-channel (stereo)
source.
* The separately sold digital audio processor (PXA-H701, etc.) is
required to enjoy Dolby Pro Logic surround sound.
Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II plays 2-channel sources in 5 channels over
the entire frequency range.
This is done with an advanced, high sound quality matrix
surround decoder which draws out the spatial properties of the
original recording without adding any sounds to or changing
the sound of the source.
* The separately sold digital audio processor (PXA-H701, etc.) is
required to enjoy Dolby Pro Logic II surround sound.
Linear PCM audio (LPCM)
Centre
speaker
Front
speakers
Rear
speakers
LPCM is a signal recording format used for music CDs.
Whereas music CDs are recorded at 44.1 kHz/16 bits, DVDs
are recorded at 48 kHz/16 bits to 96 kHz/24 bits, thereby
achieving higher sound quality than music CDs.
Rating levels (parental lock)
This is a DVD function for restricting the viewing age as
stipulated by censorship laws in different countries. The way in
which viewing is restricted differs from DVD to DVD.
Sometimes the DVD cannot be played at all, other times
certain scenes are skipped, and other times certain scenes
are replaced with other scenes.
Subwoofer
Speaker layout for enjoying
Dolby Digital sound/DTS sound
DTS
This is a home-use digital sound format of the DTS Sound
System. This is a high quality sound system, developed by
DTS, Inc. for use in movie theatres.
DTS has six independent sound tracks. The theatre
presentation is fully realized in the home, etc. DTS is the
abbreviation for Digital Theatre System.
* To enjoy DTS surround sound you need the separately sold DTS
digital audio processor (PXA-H701,etc.). The DVD video software
must also have a DTS sound track.
The DHA-S690 has a built-in DTS 2-channel audio decoder.
Analog audio outputs are available.

Installation and Connections
Before installing or connecting the unit, please read the
following and pages 3 to 4 of this manual thoroughly
for proper use.
Warning
MAKE THE CORRECT CONNECTIONS.
Failure to make the proper connections may result in fire or
product damage.
USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND.
(Check with your dealer if you are not sure.) Failure to do so may
result in fire, etc.
BEFORE WIRING, DISCONNECT THE CABLE FROM THE
NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL.
Failure to do so may result in electric shock or injury due to
electrical shorts.
Caution
HAVE THE WIRING AND INSTALLATION DONE BY
EXPERTS.
The wiring and installation of this unit requires special technical
skill and experience. To ensure safety, always contact the dealer
where you purchased this product to have the work done.
USE SPECIFIED ACCESSORY PARTS AND INSTALL THEM
SECURELY.
Be sure to use only the specified accessory parts. Use of other
than designated parts may damage this unit internally or may not
securely install the unit in place. This may cause parts to become
loose resulting in hazards or product failure.
ARRANGE THE WIRING SO IT IS NOT CRIMPED OR
PINCHED BY A SHARP METAL EDGE.
Never cut away cable insulation to supply power to other
equipment. Doing so will exceed the current carrying capacity of
the wire and result in fire or electric shock.
Route the cables and wiring away from moving parts (like the
seat rails) or sharp or pointed edges. This will prevent crimping
and damage to the wiring. If wiring passes through a hole in
metal, use a rubber grommet to prevent the wire’s insulation from
being cut by the metal edge of the hole.
DO NOT DAMAGE PIPE OR WIRING WHEN DRILLING
HOLES.
DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WITH HIGH MOISTURE
OR DUST.
When drilling holes in the chassis for installation, take
precautions so as not to contact, damage or obstruct pipes, fuel
lines, tanks or electrical wiring. Failure to take such precautions
may result in fire.
Avoid installing the unit in locations with high incidence of
moisture or dust. Moisture or dust that penetrates into this unit
may result in product failure.
DO NOT SPLICE INTO ELECTRICAL CABLES.
DO NOT USE BOLTS OR NUTS IN THE BRAKE OR
STEERING SYSTEMS TO MAKE GROUND CONNECTIONS.
Bolts or nuts used for the brake or steering systems (or any other
safety-related system), or tanks should NEVER be used for
installations or ground connections. Using such parts could
disable control of the vehicle and cause fire etc.
KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BATTERIES OUT OF THE
REACH OF CHILDREN.
Swallowing them may result in serious injury.
If swallowed, consult a physician immediately.
DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WHICH MIGHT HINDER
VEHICLE OPERATION, SUCH AS THE STEERING WHEEL
OR SHIFT LEVER.
Doing so may obstruct forward vision or hamper movement etc.
and results in serious accident.
IMPORTANT
Please record the serial number of your unit in the space
provided below and keep it as a permanent record. The serial
number plate is located on the bottom of the unit.
Precautions
• Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (–) battery post before
installing your DHA-S690. This will reduce any chance of
damage to the unit in case of a short-circuit.
• Be sure to connect the colour coded leads according to the
diagram. Incorrect connections may cause the unit to
malfunction or damage to the vehicle’s electrical system.
• When making connections to the vehicle’s electrical system, be
aware of the factory installed components (e.g. on-board
computer). Do not tap into these leads to provide power for
this unit. When connecting the DHA-S690 to the fuse box,
make sure the fuse for the intended circuit of the DHA-S690
has the appropriate amperage. Failure to do so may result in
damage to the unit and/or the vehicle. When in doubt, consult
your ALPINE dealer.
• The DHA-S690 uses female RCA-type jacks for connection to
other units (e.g. amplifier) having RCA connectors. You may
need an adaptor to connect other units. If so, please contact
your authorized ALPINE dealer for assistance.
