Features
Built-in AM/FM tuner for HD Radio (IBOC
system*) broadcasts
Digital broadcasts can now be heard along with
conventional analog broadcasts thanks to the
incorporation of the IBOC system that adds digital
signals to the existing analog radio signals. As a
result, during digital reception AM broadcasts take
on a sound quality comparable to FM broadcasts,
and FM broadcasts have a sound quality on a par
with CDs. The station names, call signs, artists and
song titles can also be displayed.
*“IBOC” stands for In Band On Channel. It refers to
analog digital simulcast broadcasting that uses the
double sideband of the existing FM 400 kHz and
AM 40 kHz broadcast carrier frequencies.
MP3/WMA Playback from CD-R/RW
You can play your MP3/WMA (Windows Media
Audio) files as well as regular CDs.
With up to 10 to 12 times* the capacity of a
conventional CD, a single MP3/WMA-encoded disc
can keep you entertained throughout your entire
journey.
*Depending on bit rate.
SQ7 (7 bands Sound Quality)
SQ is a function that can call up various sound
types at the touch of button in accordance with your
listening music type.
At SQ7, SQ presets 2 to 6 can also be finely
adjusted as desired (page 32).
HPF (High Pass Filter)/LPF (Low Pass Filter)
Genuine subwoofer system achieved thanks to HPF
(High Pass Filter) and LPF (Low Pass Filter)
CD Changer Control
You can connect the optional CD changer unit. For
details, refer to the operating instructions on the CD
changer unit.
≥ 2 CD changers (option) can be controlled with
this unit. To connect 2 CD changers to it, the
dual CD changer selector CA-CD55U (option) is
necessary.
Large-sized Volume Control
An large-sized rotary volume control that looks like
one belonging to a Hi-Fi audio system is featured.
What is HD Radio™?
Today’s AM and FM radio is broadcast in analog,
which has lower audio quality and is filled with
static, hiss, pops and fades. Radio stations have
begun a transformation to the world of digital using
a new technology called HD Radio™. Today’s
analog signals and the new HD Radio digital signals
will be transmitted at the same time from AM and
FM stations. The radios you use today will continue
to function for years, however, new receivers
are needed to hear the HD Radio digital signals
broadcast from the stations.
Using these new receivers, you can pick up the
new HD Radio digital signals at the same place on
the dial (106.7 KROQ will be digital 106.7 KROQ
broadcasting in HD Radio, 710 WOR will be digital
710 WOR broadcasting in HD Radio). Your favorite
HD Radio digital station will be right where you left
it. Additionally, new HD Radio receivers will still
pick up stations broadcasting in analog, so you don’t
need two radios.
The benefits of digital far outweigh old analog
technology. HD Radio makes radio “fun” again. FM
digital will sound like a CD throughout the coverage
area, and AM digital will sound like today’s FM
throughout the coverage area, both without the
static, hiss, pops or fades that you’ve had to put up
with for almost a century.
While HD Radio will bring you pristine audio quality,
it will also provide data services*. Both AM and
FM HD Radio stations will transmit song and artist
title, traffic updates, weather alerts, news reports
and much more. For more information, visit
www.hd-radio.com. Stay tuned!
*This unit supports text displays for the following
items;
station name, call sign, artist, song title.

Notes on MP3/WMA
What is MP3/WMA?
MP3 (MPEG audio layer 3) and WMA (Windows
Media™ Audio) are the compression formats of
digital audio. The former is developed by MPEG
(Motion Picture Experts Group), and the latter is
developed by Microsoft Corporation. Using these
compression formats, you can record the contents
of about 10 music CDs on a single CD media. (These
figures refer to data recorded on a 650 MB CD-R
or CD-RW at a fixed bit rate of 128 kbps and a
sampling frequency of 44.1 kHz.)
Note:
≥ MP3/WMA encoding and writing software is not
supplied with this unit.
≥ CD writing software is not supplied with this unit.
Points to Remember
When Making MP3/WMA Files
Common:
≥ High bit rate and high sampling frequency are
recommended for high quality sounds.
≥ Selecting VBR (Variable Bit Rate) is not
recommended because playing time is not
displayed properly and sound may be skipped.
≥ The playback sound quality differs depending on
the encoding circumstances. For details, refer to
the user manual of your own encoding software
and writing software.
MP3:
≥ It is recommended to set the bit rate to “128 kbps
or more” and “fixed”.
Display Information

∫ Displayable Characters

A to Z, a to z, digits 0 to 9, and the following
symbols:
(space) ! ” ’ # $ % & ( ) * + , - . / : ; < = > ? @ [ \ ] ^
_`{|}~
Special characters:
ÀÁÂÃÅÄàáâãåä
ÒÓÔÕÖòóôõö
ÙÚÛÜùúûü
≥ Displayable length of file name/folder name:
within 64 characters
≥ Name files and folders in accordance with
the standard of each file system. Refer to the
instructions of writing software for details.
≥ ASCII character set and special characters in each
language can be displayed.
Note:
≥ With some software in which MP3/WMA format
files have been encoded, the character information
may not be displayed properly.
≥ Undisplayable characters and symbols will be
converted into an asterisk.
WMA:
≥ It is recommended to set the bit rate to “64 kbps
or more” and “fixed”.
≥ Do not set the copy protect attribute on the WMA
file to enable this unit to playback.
Caution:
≥ Never assign the “.mp3”, or “.wma” file
name extension to a file that is not in the
MP3/WMA format. This may not only produce
noise from the speaker damage, but also
damage your hearing.

Recording MP3/WMA Files
on a CD-Media
≥ You are recommended to minimize the chances
of making a disc that contains both CD-DA files
and MP3/WMA files.
≥ If CD-DA files are on the same disc as MP3
or WMA files, the songs may not play in the
intended order, or some songs may not play at
all.
≥ When storing MP3 data and WMA data on the
same disc, use different folders for each data.
≥ Do not record files other than MP3/WMA files and
unnecessary folder on a disc.
≥ The name of MP3/WMA file should be added by
rules as shown in the following descriptions and
also comply with the rules of each file system.
≥ You may encounter trouble in playing MP3/WMA
files or displaying the information of MP3/WMA
files recorded with certain writing software or CD
recorders.
≥ The file extension “.mp3” or “.wma” should be
assigned to each file depending on the file format.
≥ This unit does not have the play list function.
≥ Although Multi-session recording is supported,
the use of Disc-at-Once is recommended.
Folder Selection Order/File
Playback Order
Maximum number of files/folders:
≥ Maximum number of files: 999
≥ Maximum number of files in one folder: 255
≥ Maximum depth of trees: 8
≥ Maximum number of folders:
255 (Root folder is included.)
Note:
≥ This unit counts the number of folders irrespective
of the presence or absence of MP3/WMA file.
≥ Operation returns to the start of the disc when
a folder with no MP3 or WMA format files is
selected.
≥ Playback order may be different from other
MP3/WMA players even if the same disc is used.
≥ “ROOT” appears when displaying the root folder
name.

Installation Guide (continued)
Identify All Leads
The first step in installation is to identify all the
car wires you’ll use when hooking up your sound
system.
As you identify each wire, we suggest that you label
it using masking tape and a permanent marker. This
will help avoid confusion when making connections
later.
Note:
≥ Do not connect the power connector to the stereo
unit until you have made all connections. If there
are no plastic caps on the stereo hooking wires,
insulate all exposed leads with electrical tape until
you are ready to use them. Identify the leads in
the following order.
Power Lead
If your car has a radio or is
pre-wired for one:
Cut the connector wires
one at a time from the plug
(leaving the leads as long
as possible) so that you can
work with individual leads.
Turn the ignition on to the accessory position, and
ground one lead of the test bulb to the chassis.
Touch the other lead of the test bulb to each of the
exposed wires from the cut radio connector plug.
Touch one wire at a time until you find the outlet
that causes the test bulb to light.
Now turn the ignition off and then on. If the bulb
also turns off and on, that outlet is the car power
lead.
If your car is not wired for an audio unit:
Go to the fuse block and find the fuse port for radio
(RADIO), accessory (ACC), or ignition (IGN).
Battery Lead
If your stereo unit has a yellow lead, you will need
to locate the car’s battery lead. Otherwise you may
ignore this procedure. (The yellow battery lead
provides continuous power to maintain a clock,
memory storage, or other function.)
If your car has a radio or is pre-wired for one:
With the ignition and headlights off, identify the car
battery lead by grounding one lead of the test bulb
to the chassis and checking the remaining exposed
wires from the cut radio connector plug.
If your car is not wired for an audio unit:
Go to the fuse block and find the fuse port for the
battery, usually marked BAT.
Speakers
Identify the car speaker leads. There are two leads
for each speaker which are usually color coded.
A handy way to identify the speaker leads and the
speaker they are connected with is to test the leads
using a 1.5 V AA battery as follows.
Hold one lead against one pole of the battery and
stroke the other lead across the other pole. You will
hear a scraping sound in one of the speakers if you
are holding a speaker lead.
If not, keep testing different lead combinations until
you have located all the speaker leads. When you
label them, include the speaker location for each.
Antenna Motor
If your car is equipped with an automatic power
antenna, identify the car motor antenna lead by
connecting one bulb tester lead to the car battery
lead and touching the remaining exposed wires
from the cut radio connector plug one at a time. You
will hear the antenna motor activate when you touch
the correct wire.
Antenna
The antenna lead is a thick, black wire with a metal
plug at the end.
Connect All Leads
Now that you have identified all the wires in the
car, you are ready to begin connecting them to the
stereo unit wires. The wiring diagram (page 56)
shows the proper connections and color coding of
the leads.
We strongly recommend that you test the unit
before making a final installation.
You can set the unit on the floor and make
temporary connections to test the unit. Use
electrical tape to cover all exposed wires.
Important:
≥ Connect the red power lead last, after you have
made and insulated all other connections.
Ground
Connect the black ground lead of the power
connector to the metal car chassis.
Speakers
Connect the speaker wires. See the wiring diagram
(page 56) for the proper hookups. Follow the
diagram carefully to avoid damaging the speakers
and the stereo unit.
The speakers used must be able to handle
more than 50 W of audio power. If using an
optional audio amplifier, the speakers should be
able to handle the maximum amplifier output
power. Speakers with low input ratings can be
damaged. Speaker impedance should measure
4–8 ≠, which is typically marked on most speakers.
Lower or higher impedance speakers will affect
output and can cause both speaker and stereo unit
damage.
Motor Antenna
Connect the car motor antenna lead to the dark blue
motor antenna relay control lead.
(Do not confuse the antenna lead with blue/white
stripe lead for a power amplifier.)
Equipment
Connect any optional equipment such as an
amplifier, according to the instructions furnished
with the equipment. Leave about 12q (30 cm) of
distance between the speaker leads/amplifier unit
and the antenna/antenna extension cord. Read
the operating and installation instructions of any
equipment you will connect to this unit.
Power
Connect the red power lead to the correct car radio
wire or to the appropriate fuse port on the fuse
block.
If the stereo unit functions properly with all these
connections made, disconnect the wires and
proceed to the final installation.
Final Installation
Lead Connections
Connect all wires, making sure that each connection
is insulated and secure. Bundle all loose wires and
fasten them with tape so they will not fall down
later. Now insert the stereo unit into the mounting
collar.
Congratulations! After making a few final checks,
you’re ready to enjoy your new auto stereo system.
Final Checks
1. Make sure that all wires are properly connected
and insulated.
2. Make sure that the stereo unit is securely held in
the mounting collar.
3. Turn on the ignition to check the unit for proper
operation.
If you have difficulties, consult your nearest
authorized professional installer for assistance.
Battery
Connect the yellow battery lead to the correct radio
wire or to the battery fuse port on the fuse block.
Antenna
Connect the antenna by plugging the antenna lead
into the antenna receptacle.
