SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
“SOME DOS AND DON’TS ON THE SAFE USE OF EQUIPMENT”
This equipment has been designed and manufactured to meet international safety standards, but like any electrical equipment,
care must be taken if you are to obtain the best results and safety is to be assured.
✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮

equipment) are properly made and in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Switch off and withdraw the mains plug
when making or changing connections.
Do consult your dealer if you are ever in doubt about the installation, operation or safety of your equipment.
Do be careful with glass panels or doors on equipment.
✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮
DON’T continue to operate the equipment if you are in any doubt about it working normally, or if it is damaged in any way
—switch off, withdraw the mains plug and consult your dealer.
DON’T remove any fixed cover as this may expose dangerous voltages.
DON’T leave equipment switched on when it is unattended unless it is specifically stated that it is designed for unattended

same or similar names (or marks), unless mentioned
otherwise.
• Basic and common information that is the same for many
functions is grouped in one place, and is not repeated for
each procedure. For instance, we do not repeat the
information about turning on/off the unit, setting the
volume, changing the sound effects, and others, which are
explained in the section “Basic and Common Operations”
on pages 9 to 12.

Moisture may condense on the lenses inside the unit in the
following cases:
• After starting to heat the room.
• In a damp room.
• If the unit is brought directly from a cold to a warm place.
Should this occur, the unit may malfunction. In this case,
leave the unit turned on for a few hours until the moisture
evaporates, unplug the AC power cord, then plug it in again.
Others
• Should any metallic object or liquid fall into the unit,
unplug the AC power cord and consult your dealer before
operating any further.
• If you are not going to operate the unit for an extended
period of time, unplug the AC power cord from the wall
outlet.

Receiving FM Stations with RDS
RDS (Radio Data System) allows FM stations to send an
additional signal along with their regular program signals.
For example, the stations send their station names, as well as
information about what type of program they broadcast, such
as sports or music, etc.
When tuned in to an FM station which provides the RDS
service, the RDS indicator lights up on the display.
With the unit, you can receive the following types of RDS
signals.
Searching for Programs by PTY Codes
(PTY Search)
One of the advantages of RDS is that you can locate a
particular kind of program by specifying the PTY codes.
• For details on the PTY codes, see “Additional Information”
on page 27.
PS (Program Service):
Shows commonly known station names.
To search for a program using the PTY codes
REMEMBER you must preset FM RDS stations to use the
PTY codes. If not yet done, see page 13.

services in your area, check with local radio stations.
• RDS may not work correctly if the received station is not
transmitting the signals properly or if the signal strength is weak.
Changing the RDS Information
You can see RDS information on the display while listening
to an FM station.

Playing Back Discs on the 5-CD Changer
This unit has been designed to play back the following
discs—CD, CD-R, and CD-RW.
You can play back the discs containing the tracks in music
CD format or MP3 files in ISO 9660 format.
• In this instruction, we call a disc recorded MP3 files “MP3
disc,” and “file” is also referred to as “track.”
When playing CD-Rs or CD-RWs
• Before playing CD-Rs or CD-RWs, read their instructions
or cautions carefully.
• User-edited CD-Rs (CD-Recordable) and CD-RWs (CDReWritable) can be played only if they are already
“finalized.”
• This unit supports “multi-session” discs (up to 5 sessions).
• This unit cannot play “packet write” discs.
• Some CD-Rs or CD-RWs may not be played back on this
unit because of their disc characteristics, damage or stain
on them, or if the player’s lens is dirty.
• CD-RWs may require a longer readout time. This is
because the reflectance of CD-RWs is lower than for
regular discs.
Loading Discs
On the unit ONLY:
1 Press one of the disc eject buttons (CD10 –
CD50) for the disc tray you want to load a
disc onto.
The unit automatically turns on and the selected disc tray
comes out.
CD1
CD2
CD3
CD4
CD5
2 Place a disc correctly on the circle of the disc
tray, with its label side up.
Notes for MP3 files
• The player can only recognize files with “MP3” or “mp3”
as the extensions, which can be in any combination of
upper and lower case.
• It is recommended that you record your material at a 44.1
kHz sampling rate, using the 128 kbps data transfer rate.
• Some MP3 files or discs may not be played back because
of their characteristics or recording conditions.
• MP3 discs requires a longer readout time than normal discs
because of the complexity of the group/file configuration.
• MP3i and MP3 Pro are not available.
Good
General notes
In general, you will have the best performance by keeping
your discs and the mechanism clean.
• Store discs in their cases, and keep them in
cabinets or on shelves.
• Keep the unit’s disc trays closed when not in use.
• Continued use of irregular shape discs (heartshape, octagonal, etc.) can damage the unit.
