Using the Radio Data
System (RDS)
(European model only)
What is the Radio Data System?
Radio Data System (RDS) is a
broadcasting service that allows radio
stations to send additional information
along with the regular program signal.
This tuner offers convenient RDS features
like station name. RDS is available only
on FM stations.*
* Not all FM stations provide RDS service, nor
do they provide the same types of services. If
you are not familiar with the RDS system,
check with your local radio stations for details
on RDS services in your area.
Note
RDS may not work properly if the station you
are tuned in is not transmitting the RDS signal
properly or if the signal is weak.
Receiving RDS broadcasts
Simply select a station from FM
band.
When you tune in a station that provides
RDS services, the station name appears in
the display.
To check the RDS information
While receiving an RDS station,

Precautions
Discs that this system CAN play
• AUDIO CD
• CD-R/CD-RW (audio data/MP3 files)
Discs that this system CANNOT play
• CD-ROM
• CD-R/CD-RW other than those recorded in
music CD format or MP3 format conforming
to ISO9660 Level 1/Level 2, Joliet (expansion
format)
• CD-R/CD-RW recorded in multisession that
have not ended by “closing the session”
• CD-R/CD-RW of poor recording quality,
CD-R/CD-RW that have scratches or are
dirty, or CD-R/CD-RW recorded with an
incompatible recording device
• CD-R/CD-RW which is finalized incorrectly
• Disc containing files other than MPEG 1
Audio Layer-3 (MP3) files
• Discs of non-standard shape (for example,
heart, square, star)
• Discs that have adhesive tape, paper, or
sticker attached to them
• Rental or used discs with attached seals where
the glue extends beyond the seal
• Discs that have labels printed using ink that
feels tacky when touched
Notes on discs
• Before playing, wipe the disc with a cleaning
cloth from the center out to the edge.
• Do not clean discs with solvents, such as
benzine, thinner, or commercially available
cleaners or anti-static spray intended for vinyl
LPs.
• Do not expose discs to direct sunlight or heat
sources such as hot air ducts, nor leave it in a
car parked in direct sunlight.
On safety
• The unit is not disconnected from the AC
power source (mains) as long as it is
connected to the wall socket, even if the unit
itself has been turned off.
• Completely disconnect the power cord (mains
lead) from the wall socket (mains) if it is not
going to be used for an extended period of
time. When unplugging the unit, always grip
the plug. Never pull the cord itself.
48GB
• Should any solid object or liquid get into the
system, unplug the system, and have it
checked by qualified personnel before
operating it again.
• The AC power cord can be changed only by a
qualified service facility.
On placement
• Do not place the system in an inclined
position or in locations that are extremely hot,
cold, dusty, dirty, or humid or lacking
adequate ventilation, or subject to vibration,
direct sunlight or a bright light.
• Be careful when placing the unit or speakers
on surfaces that have been specially treated
(for example, with wax, oil, polish) as staining
or discoloration of the surface may result.
• If the system is brought directly from a cold to
a warm location or is placed in a very damp
room, moisture may condense on the lens
inside the unit, and cause the system to
malfunction. In this situation, remove the
disc, and leave the system turned on for about
an hour until the moisture evaporates.
On heat buildup
• Heat buildup on the unit during operation is
normal and is not a cause for alarm.
• Do not touch the cabinet if it has been used
continuously at a high volume because the
cabinet may have become hot.
• Do not obstruct the ventilation holes.
On the speaker system
This speaker system is not magnetically
shielded, and the picture on nearby TV sets may
become magnetically distorted. In this situation,
turn off the TV, wait 15 to 30 minutes, and turn
it back on. If there is no improvement, move the
speakers far away from the TV.
Cleaning the cabinet
Clean this system with a soft cloth slightly
moistened with a mild detergent solution.
Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring
powder, or solvent, such as thinner, benzine,
or alcohol.
