Operating Instructions
WARNING
WARNING
This symbol means important instructions. Failure
to heed them can result in serious injury or death.
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
DO NOT OPERATE ANY FUNCTION THAT TAKES YOUR 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.
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.
DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OR ALTER.
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.
Temperature
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
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.
Damaged Disc
Do not attempt to play cracked, warped, or damaged discs. Playing
a bad disc could severely damage the playback mechanism.
Doing so may result in an accident, fire or electric shock.
Maintenance
USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND.
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.
(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.
Never Attempt the Following
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.
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.
Use for other than its designed application may result in fire,
electric shock or other injury.
DO NOT PLACE HANDS, FINGERS OR FOREIGN OBJECTS IN INSERTION
SLOTS OR GAPS.
Doing so may result in personal injury or damage to the product.
CAUTION
This symbol means important instructions. Failure
to heed them can result in injury or material
property damage.
6-EN
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.
New Discs
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)
If the surface is heavily soiled, dampen a clean, soft cloth in a
solution of mild neutral detergent before cleaning the disc.
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.
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.

time before the file is played back or searched.
• The unit can play back “mp3”, “wma” or “m4a” file extensions.
• Do not add the above extensions to a file other than audio data. This
non-audio data will not be recognised. The resulting playback may
contain noise that can damage speakers and/or amplifiers.
• It is recommended to back up important data on a personal
computer.
• Do not remove the USB device while playback is in progress. Change
SOURCE to something other than USB, then remove the USB device

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 is supported.

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 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.
ID3 tags/WMA tags
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, “NO SUPPORT” is displayed.
If information contains characters other than ID3 tag information, the
audio file may not be played back.
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.
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.
15-EN
Verify the writing order in the software’s documentation. The playback
order of the folders and files is as follows.

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.

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.
• If no operation is performed for 5 seconds, the unit automatically
returns to normal mode.
• Loudness introduces a special low- and high-frequency emphasis at low
listening levels. This compensates for the ear’s decreased sensitivity to
bass and treble sound.

Installation and Connections
Before installing or connecting the unit, please read the following
and refer to “Operating Instructions” on page 6 for proper use.
CAUTION
WARNING
HAVE THE WIRING AND INSTALLATION DONE BY EXPERTS.
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.
(Check with your dealer if you are not sure.) Failure to do so may
result in fire, etc.
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.
BEFORE WIRING, DISCONNECT THE CABLE FROM THE NEGATIVE BATTERY
TERMINAL.
ARRANGE THE WIRING SO IT IS NOT CRIMPED OR PINCHED BY A SHARP
METAL EDGE.
Failure to do so may result in electric shock or injury due to
electrical shorts.
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.
USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND.
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.
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-134BT. 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-134BT to the fuse box, make sure the fuse for the intended
circuit of the CDE-134BT 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-134BT 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.
