ATTENTION AWAY FROM SAFELY DRIVING YOUR VEHICLE.
Any function that requires your prolonged attention should only be
performed after coming to a complete stop. Always stop the vehicle
in a safe location before performing these functions. Failure to do
so may result in an accident.
KEEP THE VOLUME AT A LEVEL WHERE YOU CAN STILL
HEAR OUTSIDE NOISES WHILE DRIVING.
CAUTION
This symbol means important instructions.
Failure to heed them can result in injury or
material property damage.
HALT USE IMMEDIATELY IF A PROBLEM APPEARS.
Failure to do so may cause personal injury or damage to the
product. Return it to your authorized Alpine dealer or the nearest
Alpine Service Centre for repairing.
PRECAUTIONS
Product Cleaning
Use a soft dry cloth for periodic cleaning of the product. For more
severe stains, please dampen the cloth with water only. Anything
else has the chance of dissolving the paint or damaging the plastic.
Excessive volume levels that obscure sounds such as emergency
vehicle sirens or road warning signals (train crossings, etc.) can be
dangerous and may result in an accident. LISTENING AT LOUD
VOLUME LEVELS IN A CAR MAY ALSO CAUSE HEARING
DAMAGE.
Temperature
DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OR ALTER.
You may notice the CD 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.
Doing so may result in an accident, fire or electric shock.
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.
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.
Be sure the temperature inside the vehicle is between +60°C
(+140°F) and –10°C (+14°F) before turning your unit on.
Moisture Condensation
Damaged Disc
Do not attempt to play cracked, warped, or damaged discs. Playing
a bad disc could severely damage the playback mechanism.
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.
USE THE CORRECT AMPERE RATING WHEN REPLACING
FUSES.
Failure to do so may result in fire or electric shock.
DO NOT BLOCK VENTS OR RADIATOR PANELS.
Doing so may cause heat to build up inside and may result in fire.
USE THIS PRODUCT FOR MOBILE 12V APPLICATIONS.

Never Attempt the Following
Installation Location
Do not grip or pull out the disc while it is being pulled back into the
player by the automatic reloading mechanism.
Do not attempt to insert a disc into the unit when the unit power is
off.
Make sure this unit will not be installed in a location subjected to:
•
•
•
•
Direct sun and heat
High humidity and water
Excessive dust
Excessive vibrations
Correct Handling
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.
CORRECT
Inserting Discs
Your player accepts only one disc at a time for playback. Do not
attempt to load more than one disc.
Make sure the label side is facing up when you insert the disc.
“ERROR” will be displayed on your player if you insert a disc
incorrectly. If “ERROR” continues to be displayed even though the
disc has been inserted correctly, push the RESET switch with a
pointed object such as a ballpoint pen.
Playing a disc while driving on a very bumpy road may result in
skips, but this will not scratch the disc or damage the player.
To prevent the CD from jamming, “ERROR” is displayed if discs
with irregular surfaces are inserted or if discs are inserted
incorrectly. When a new disc is ejected immediately after initial
loading, use your finger to feel around the inside of the centre hole
and outside edge of the disc. If you feel any small bumps or
irregularities, this could inhibit proper loading of the disc. To
remove the bumps, rub the inside edge of the hole and outside edge
of the disc with a ballpoint pen or other such instrument, then insert
the disc again.
Bumps
CORRECT
Disc Cleaning
New Discs
Centre Hole
INCORRECT
Fingerprints, dust, or soil on the surface of the disc could cause the
CD player 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.
Centre Hole
New Disc
Outside
(Bumps)
Irregular Shaped Discs
Be sure to use round shape discs only for this unit and never use
any special shape discs.
Use of special shape discs may cause damage to the mechanism.
Disc Accessories
There are various accessories available on the market for protecting
the disc surface and improving sound quality. However, most of
them will influence the thickness and/or diameter of the disc. Using
such accessories can cause the disc to be out of standard
specifications and may create operational problems. We
recommend not using these accessories on discs played in Alpine
CD players.

About MP3/WMA/AAC
CAUTION
Except for private use, duplicating audio data (including MP3/
WMA/AAC data) or distributing, transferring, or copying it,
whether for free or for a fee, without permission of the copyright
holder is strictly prohibited by the Copyright Act and by
international treaty.
What is MP3?
MP3, whose official name is “MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3,” is a
compression standard prescribed by the ISO, the International
Standardization Organization and MPEG which is a joint activity
institution of the IEC.
MP3 files contain compressed audio data. MP3 encoding is
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 realises such high compression ratios
by eliminating the sounds that are either inaudible to the human
ear or masked by other sounds.
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.
What is AAC?
AAC is the abbreviation for “Advanced Audio Coding,” and is a
basic format of audio compression used by MPEG2 or MPEG4.
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 are playable on this device have the
file extensions “mp3”/“wma”/“m4a.” Files with no extension
cannot be played back (WMA ver. 7.1 , 8 and 9 are supported).
Protected files are not supported, neither are raw AAC files
(using the “.aac” extension).
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 6.0 or earlier is
supported.
Supported playback sampling rates and bit rates
MP3
Sampling rates: 48 kHz, 44.1 kHz, 32 kHz, 24 kHz, 22.05 kHz,
16 kHz, 12 kHz, 11.025 kHz, 8 kHz
Bit rates:
8 - 320 kbps
WMA
Sampling rates: 48 kHz, 44.1 kHz, 32 kHz

16 kHz, 12 kHz, 11.025 kHz, 8 kHz
Bit rates:
16 - 320 kbps
This device may not play back correctly depending on sampling
rates.
ID3 tags/WMA tags
This device supports ID3 tag v1 and v2, and WMA/AAC 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/
AAC 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, “NO
SUPPORT” is displayed.
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 using CD-R writing software. A disc can hold up to 510
files/folders (including Root Folders), and the maximum number
of folders is 255.
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,
and CD-RWs.
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.
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.

Installation and Connections
Before installing or connecting the unit, please read the
following and pages 3 and 5 of this manual thoroughly
for proper use.
Caution
HAVE THE WIRING AND INSTALLATION DONE BY EXPERTS.
Warning
MAKE THE CORRECT CONNECTIONS.
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.
Failure to make the proper connections may result in fire or product
damage.
USE SPECIFIED ACCESSORY PARTS AND INSTALL THEM
SECURELY.
USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND.
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.
(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.
DO NOT SPLICE INTO ELECTRICAL CABLES.
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.
DO NOT DAMAGE PIPE OR WIRING WHEN DRILLING
HOLES.
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.
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 or the
engraved serial number is located on the bottom of the unit.
ARRANGE THE WIRING SO IT IS NOT CRIMPED OR
PINCHED BY A SHARP METAL EDGE.
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 INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WITH HIGH MOISTURE OR
DUST.
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.
Precautions
• Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (–) battery post before
installing your CDE-9881R/CDE-9881RB. 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 CDE-9881R/CDE-9881RB to the fuse box, make
sure the fuse for the intended circuit of the CDE-9881R/
CDE-9881RB 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 CDE-9881R/CDE-9881RB 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.
• Be sure to connect the speaker (–) leads to the speaker (–) terminal.
Never connect left and right channel speaker cables to each other or
to the vehicle body.
