Full Digital CD Receiver

The CQ-C8803N uses Radio DSP for digital conversion and processing of FM/AM signals, and a digital amp to provide amplification of the digital data. With this technology, Panasonic achieves full digital processing of radio and CD signals from input to speaker output. This means faithful reproduction of the original sound.

Radio DSP

By digitally converting and processing FM/AM broadcast signals, this greatly reduces adjacent interference and multipath distortion.

A radio's IF filter has the job of preventing neighboring broadcast frequencies from interfering with reception of your desired station. Panasonic's Radio DSP uses an advanced algorithm to perform this task with digital control. It maintains the optimum balance between noise suppression and sound quality by automatically adjusting the IF filter bandwidth in response to the changing interference characteristics as you drive.

MP3/WMA Player

What is MP3/WMA?

MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer-3) and WMA (Windows Media TM

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 (This 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.

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”.

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 play back.

Displayable characters

¡

Displayable length of file name/folder name: within 64 characters (Unicoded file and folder names are reduced by half in the number of displayable 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.

ASCII character set

A to Z, a to z, digits 0 to 9, and the following symbols:

(space) ! ” # $ % & ’ ( ) * + , - . / : ; < = > ? @ [ \ ] ˆ

_ ` { | } ~

Notes:

¡ 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 (

*

).

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.

30

CQ-C8803N

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.

¡
