CD/MP3 Player

(continued)

This player allows you to play MP3 files recorded on CD-ROMs, CD-Rs

(Recordable) and CD-RWs (Rewritable).

What is MP3?

MP3, short for MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3, MPEG-2 Audio Layer 3 LSF (Low Sampling Frequency), is a standard for compressing digital video data adopted for video CDs and similar media. It is one of the audio compression systems covered by

MPEG's (Motion Picture Experts Group) digital audio compression standards. What it does is reduce the number of bytes in a song without detracting from the sound quality by eliminating big sound waves within the sound range that is imperceptible to the human ear. This compression allows you to reduce the contents of a conventional music CD by a factor of around 10. This means that you can record the contents of 10 music CDs on a single CD-R or CD-RW. (The 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.)

Points to Remember When Recording an MP3 Disc

Converting (encoding) audio data to an MP3 file

¡

It is recommended that you set the bit rate to “128 kbps or more” and “Fixed”.

¡

Bit rate 8 kbps of MPEG-2 and sampling frequency 16 kHz of MPEG-2 can not be reproduced.

¡ VBR (Variable Bit Rate) is not supported.

¡

The playback sound quality differs depending on the encoding software and the bit rate. For details refer to the user manual of your encoding software.

Recording MP3 files on a CD-R/RW

¡ Do not record files other than MP3s or unnecessary folders on a disc. If many folders or files other than MP3s are recorded on a disc, it may take some time before playback starts.

¡

Use ISO 9660 file system (Extension of the ISO 9660 file systems are included.) (

a

page 31). APPLE HFS file

system is not supported. If they do not conform to ISO 9660 file system, the file may not play normally, or the file or folder names may not be displayed correctly.

¡ Make sure to add the “.mp3” extension to each MP3 file name. A file with a different file name extension or none at all will not play.

¡ Although Multi session recording is supported, the use of Disc-at-Once is recommended. Make sure to close the session when you finished recording on a disc.

¡

A disc recorded by the packet writing software are not supported.

¡ A playlist function is not supported. Record files and folders in the order in which you want them to be played.

Some writing software lets you specify the recording order by adding a prefix in the range of “01” - “99”, etc. to the file name. For details refer to the user manual of your writing software.

Notes:

¡ You may encounter trouble in playing MP3s or displaying the information of MP3 files recorded with certain writing softwares or CD recorders (CD-R/RW drives).

¡ If a disc contains both MP3 and CD-DA, only CD-DA data is reproduced properly. (MP3 files are played but no sound is output).

Warning: Never assign the “.mp3” file name extension to a file that is not in the MP3 format. This may produce noise from the speakers and cause speaker damage and can damage your hearing.

Music. The way it was meant to be heard.

Completely commercial-free.

You are riding in your car. Your crank up your favorite music station. You never hear a commercial. Not one.

Nice fantasy? No fantasy. It is Sirius Satellite Radio. 60 original music channels, all commercial-free-not just some of them - all of them. Guaranteed. So it is just you, the road and the music.

100 channels of the best in-car entertainment

Only Sirius has 60 original music channels, from today's hits to R&B oldies to classical masterpieces. From authentic country and real bluegrass to cool jazz, hot latin, reggae, rock and many more. Plus 40 channels of world-class sports, news and entertainment, like ESPN,

The Speed Channel, CNBC, Fox News, Radio Disney and

E! Entertainment Radio.

Rely on Sirius rocket science for superior coverage

Only Sirius has three powerful satellites that fly in figureright orbits to ensure coast-to-coast coverage. These orbits allow Sirius satellites to broadcast a high angles for a “clear line of sight” and a direct signal to our car.

Count on S>PLEX technology for superior sound resolution

Sirius employs S>PLEX technology (statistical multiplexing), which optimizes the fidelity on each channel to give you superior digital sound. So rock really soars, jazz really jams and country really sings.

Once you experience 100 channels for digital entertainment, you will never want to leave your car. For more information, visit sirius.com

With Sirius, the emphasis is on the music and entertainment you want. Our music is hosted by Master Music

Programmers and on-air personalities who are true experts. They back up the music with compelling information about the song being played, and they understand that sometimes it is best to just let the music speak for itself.

ID Code setting

Prior to operating this unit, it is advisable to assign your 4-digit ID code for security.

(Make sure to use four digits for ID code.)

Once the ID code has been set, the unit cannot be operated if the main power supply is disconnected then re-connected. It is electronically locked so that a thief could not use the stolen unit unless that person knows the code you have set.

The ID code operation must be performed only by the person whom the unit belongs to.

Generally, it is not necessary to enter the ID code each time when using the unit if it has never been disconnected from the main power supply (car battery).

¡

Do not install the monitor in a location which obstructs driving, visibility or which is prohibited by

applicable laws and regulations. If the monitor is installed in a location which obstructs forward visibility or operation of the air bag or other safety equipment or which interferes with operation of the car, it may cause an accident.

¡ Never use bolts or nuts from the car's safety devices for installation. If bolts or nuts from the steering wheel, brakes or other safety devices are used for installation of the monitor, it may cause an accident.

¡ Attach the wires correctly. If the wiring is not correctly performed, it may cause a fire or an accident. In particular, be sure to run and secure the lead wire so that it does not get tangled with a screw or the moving portion of a seat rail.

¡ Use with 12 volt DC negative ground car. This unit is only for use with a 12 volt DC negative ground car. It cannot be used in large trucks or diesel cars which are

24 volt DC cars. If it is used in the wrong type of car, it may cause a fire or an accident.

Cautions:

¡ Use the specified fuse. Be sure to always use the specified fuse. If a fuse other than the specified fuse is used, it may cause a fire or an accident.

¡ Do not damage the cord by pinching or pulling it. Do not pull or damage the cord. If the cord is not treated properly, it will short out or be severed and may cause a fire or an accident.

Identify All Leads

The first step in installation is to identify all the car wires you’ll use when hooking up your LCD monitor.

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 display unit until you have made all connections. If there are no plastic caps on the 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

(continued)

individual leads. Turn the ignition on to the accessory position, and ground one lead of the test bulb to the chassis.

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.

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 or other functions.)

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 (not supplied speaker)

Identify the car speaker leads. There are two leads for each speaker, 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 a speaker 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.

Connect All Leads

Now that you have identified all the wires in the car, you're ready to begin connecting them to the LCD monitor wires.

The wiring diagram ( a page 74-85) shows the proper wiring and color coding of the leads.

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 (not supplied speaker)

Connect the speaker wires. See the wiring diagram 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 45 W of audio power. If using an optional audio power, 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

Ω, which is typically marked on most speakers. Lower or higher impedance speakers will affect output and can cause both speaker and stereo unit damage.

Caution: Never ground the speaker cords. For example, do not use a chassis ground system or a three-wire speaker common system. Each speaker must be connected separately using parallel insulated wires. If in doubt about how your car’s speakers are wired, please consult with your nearest professional installer.

Battery

Connect the yellow battery lead to the correct radio wire or to the battery fuse port on the fuse block.

Equipment

Connect any optional equipment according to the instructions furnished with the equipment. 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 LCD monitor functions properly with all these connections made, disconnect the wires and proceed to the final installation.

66

CQ-VAD7300U

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 LCD monitor into the mounting collar.

Congratulations! After making a few final checks, you’re ready to enjoy your new LCD monitor.

Final Checks

1. Make sure that all wires are properly connected and insulated.

2. Make sure that the LCD monitor 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.

Notes on CD-Rs/RWs

¡

You may have trouble playing back some CD-R/RW discs recorded on CD recorders (CD-R/RW drives), either due to their recording characteristics or dirt, fingerprints, scratches, etc. on the disc surface.

¡

CD-R/RW discs are less resistant to high temperatures and high humidity than ordinary music CDs. Leaving them inside a car for extended periods may damage and make playback impossible.

¡

The unit may not successfully play back a CD-R/RW that was made by the combination of writing software, a CD recorder (CD-R/RW drive) and a disc if they are incompatible with one another.

¡

This player cannot play CD-R/RW discs if the session is not closed.

¡

This player cannot play CD-R/RW discs which contain other than CD-DA or MP3 data (Video CD, etc.).

¡

Be sure to observe the handling instructions of CD-R/RW discs.

Definition of Terms

Digital audio output connector (Optical)

The digital audio output connector (optical) converts electrical signals into optical signals and transfers them to the amplifier. Consequently, it has a number of features including its immunity from electrical interference from external sources and its ability to prevent the generation of noise and its minimal effect on the external environment.

Dolby Digital

This fully discrete format divides the music signals into 5.1 channels: Front Left (L), Front Right (R),

Center (C), Left Surround (LS), Right Surround (RS) and Subwoofer (SW: 0.1 channel) for recording and playback. The number of channels that are recorded depends on the software. (1 to 5.1 channels)

Manufactured under license from Dolby

Laboratories. “Dolby” and the double-D symbol are trademarks of Dolby Laboratories.

Confidential unpublished works. Copyright

1992 – 1997 Dolby Laboratories. All rights reserved.

Dolby Pro Logic

This format records signals from four channels [Front

Left (L), Front Right (R), Center (C), and Monaural

Surround (S)] in two channels, decodes those channels through a Dolby Pro Logic decoder, and then outputs the resulting signals in four channels.

dts

This format requires more data than Dolby Digital, and provides higher quality surround playback.

Similar to Dolby Digital, this fully discrete format divides the music signals into 5.1 channels: Front Left

(L), Front Right (R), Center (C), Left Surround (LS),

Right Surround (RS) and Subwoofer (SW: 0.1 channel) for recording and playback.

Interactive DVD

An interactive DVD is DVD software which includes multiple angles, multiple plot endings, etc.

Letterbox screen

This refers to a screen on which the playback picture of wide-screen DVDs or Video CDs appears with black bands running along the top and bottom.

LPCM (Linear PCM audio)

In this format, the audio signal is converted to digital data and recorded in two channels without compression. Because the capacity of a DVD video disc is large, it can store more data with better accuracy than a CD.

Pan & Scan screen

This refers to a screen on which the playback picture of wide-screen DVDs or Video CDs is cut off at the left and right sides.

Playback control (Video CD)

If the Video CD has “With Playback Control” or others written on the disc surface or on the jacket, the scenes or information to be viewed (or listened to) can be selected interactively with the screen by looking at the menu shown on the screen.

In these instructions, playback using the menu screen is referred to as the “menu play” for video CDs. This player supports Video CDs with playback control.

Title, Chapter (DVD)

DVDs are divided into some large sections (titles) or some small sections (chapters). Each section is numbered; these numbers are called “Title number” or

“Chapter number”.

Title 1 Title 2

Chapter 1 Chapter 2 …… Chapter 1 ……

Track (Video CD/CD)

Video CDs or CDs are divided into some sections

(tracks). Each section is numbered; these numbers are called “Track number”.

Track 1 Track 2 Track 3 Track
