Do not play heart-shaped, octagonal, or other
specially shaped compact discs.
Some CDs recorded in the CD-R/CD-RW mode
may not be usable.
Handling
• Compared to ordinary music CDs, CD-R and
CD-RW discs are both easily affected by high
temperature and humidity and some CD-R and
CD-RW discs may not be playable. Therefore,
do not leave them for a long time in the car.
• New discs may

are used, the player
may not work or the sound
may skip. Use a ball-point pen
or the like to remove any
roughness from the edge of the disc.
• Never stick labels on the surface of the
compact disc or mark the surface with a pencil
or pen.
• Never play a compact disc with any cellophane
tape or other glue on it or with peeling off
marks. If you try to play such a compact disc,
you may not be able to remove it from the CD
player or it may damage the CD player.

break the internal mechanism.
Storage
• Do not expose compact discs to direct sunlight
or any heat source.
• Do not expose compact discs to excess
humidity or dust.
• Do not expose compact discs to direct heat
from heaters.
Cleaning
• To remove fingermarks and dust, use a soft
cloth and wipe in a straight line from the center
of the compact disc to the circumference.
• Do not use any solvents, such as commercially
available cleaners, anti-static spray, or thinner
to clean compact discs.
• After using special compact disc cleaner, let
the compact disc dry off well before playing it.

CAUTION
• Always close the SLOPING CONSOLE
before removing the DCP.
• If you remove the DCP with the SLOPING
CONSOLE open, the sloping console
closes immediately. Be careful not to get
your fingers caught.
• The DCP can easily be damaged by shocks.
After removing it, be careful not to drop it
or subject it to strong shocks.
• If the [RELEASE] button is pressed and the
DCP is not locked into place, it may fall out
from vibration of the car. This can break the
DCP, so after removing it, either install it on
the unit or put it in its DCP case.
• The connector connecting the unit and the

Dolby Pro Logic II is a matrix decoding
technology in which updated digital matrix
technology is applied and Dolby Pro Logic is
further improved. Dolby Pro Logic II realizes
excellent 5.1 channel reproduction of Dolby
surround source as well as stereo sound
sources such as CDs, thereby causing a
surround channel to be full-ranged (20 Hz to 20
kHz) and become stereo. Therefore, you can
enjoy any stereo sources with dynamic sound of
5.1 channel. The Music Mode or Matrix Mode
can be selected according to a source to be
reproduced.

● Compensation
There is no need to compensate frequency
characteristics if they are flat (no peaks or
valleys) when you have measured the
frequency characteristics with a measuring
device. However, sometimes the frequency
characteristics rise or fall in some places. If this
happens, the frequency characteristics must be
compensated. Create a frequency curve having
characteristics that are opposite to the center
frequency of parts where the characteristics rise
and fall to cancel out these peaks and values,
and make the frequency characteristics as flat
as possible.
Making the frequency characteristics as flat as
possible is called “compensation.”
On this unit, frequency characteristics can be
compensated by P.EQ (Parametric Equalizer).

CD / MP3 / WMA Operations
MP3 is an audio compression method and is
classified as audio layer 3 of the MPEG
standard.
This audio compression method has gained
ground into PC users and Become a standard
format.
This MP3 features original audio data
compression to about 10 percent of its initial
size while keeping high sound quality intact.
This means that about 10 music CDs can be
recorded on a CD-R disc or CD-RW disc to
allow a long listening time without having to
change CDs.
What is WMA?
WMA is the abbreviation of Windows Media

displayed as the title in the case of MP3/
WMA play but the title must be within 128
single byte alphabetical letters and numerals
(including an extension).
3. Do not give a name to a file inside a folder
having the same name.
● Folder structure
1. A disc with a folder having more than 8
hierarchical levels is not allowed.
● Number of files or folders
1. Up to 255 files can be recognized per folder.
Up to 500 files can be played.
2. Tracks are played in the order that they were
recorded onto a disc. (Tracks might not
