• MP3 discs must be ISO 9660 Level 1 or Level 2,
Romeo or Joliet compliant. Supported formats:
Mode 1, Mode 2 XA Form 1.
• Folders can be up to eight levels deep.
CD-RW
MP3

Audio CD (Session 1),
MP3 (Session 2)
• Some audio CDs use copy protection that doesn’t conform to the official CD standard. Since these are nonstandard discs, they may not play properly in the
DX-C390.
• The DX-C390 supports CD-R and CD-RW discs.
However, some CD-R and CD-RW discs may not
work properly for any of the following reasons: disc
burner characteristics, disc characteristics, the disc is
damaged or dirty. See the manual supplied with your
disc burner for more information. Condensation or dirt
on the optical pickup lens can also affect playback.
• MP3 files must be MPEG-1/MPEG-2 Audio Layer 3
format with a sampling rate of between 8 kHz and
48 kHz and a bit-rate of between 8 kbps and 320 kbps
(128 kbps recommended). Incompatible files cannot
be played.
• Fixed bit-rate MP3 files are recommended, however,
variable bit-rate (VBR) MP3 files between 8 kbps and
320 kbps are supported. (Playing times may display
incorrectly.)
• MP3 files must have a “.mp3” or “.MP3” file name
extension. MP3 files without the proper extension will
not be recognized. To prevent noise and malfunction,
do not use these extensions for other types of files.
• The DX-C390 does not support disc types not listed.
• On a single disc, the DX-C390 can recognize a total of
499 files and folders, with 99 being the maximum
number of folders. Files and folders in excess of this
cannot be played. Note that if the file and folder structure is very complicated, the DX-C390 may not be
able to read or play all of the MP3 files on the disc.
• Don’t use discs with an unusual shape, such as those
shown below, because you may damage the DX-C390.
• Disc, file and folder names may contain up to 32 characters.
• The DX-C390 supports 8 cm and 12 cm discs.
• The maximum time that can be displayed for a single
track is 99 minutes and 59 seconds.
• The remaining time cannot be displayed when playing
MP3 files.
• Don’t use discs that have residue from adhesive tape,
rental discs with peeling labels, or discs with custommade labels or stickers. Doing so may damage the
DX-C390 and you may not be able to remove the disc
properly.
• MP3 file and folder names (excluding the extension)
are shown on the display.
• Multisession discs are supported, however, some multisession discs may take a long time to load and some
may not load at all. When burning CDs we recommend that you use a single-session (disc-at-once), and
select “Disc Close.”
• Normally, the music in the audio session of a CD Extra
disc is played. However, you can set the DX-C390 so
that it plays any MP3 files in the data session of a
CD-R/RW disc instead. If the data session contains no
MP3 tracks, the audio session will be played regardless. See “MP3 & APD (Auto Power Down) Preferences” on page 24 for more information.
6
Disc Notes—Continued
• The following ID3 tags are supported: versions 1.0/1.1
and 2.3/2.4. Versions 2.2/2.5 and later are not supported. Normally, version 2.3/2.4 tags have priority
and will be displayed regardless of the ID3 VER 1
preference on page 24.
Handling Discs
• Never touch the underside of a disc. Always hold discs
by the edge, as shown.
• For ID3 version 2 tags, information in the first 2,048
bytes at the beginning of the file are recognized. We
recommend that you include only title, artist name,
and album name information in ID3 tags. Compressed, encrypted, and unsynchronized ID3 tags cannot be displayed.
Underside
• Never attach adhesive tape or sticky labels to discs.
Notes:
• With CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW discs that contain
many files and folders, and files other than MP3s, it
may take a long time to read the disc. We recommend
that you include only MP3 files on your discs, use
about 20 folders, and limit folder nesting to three levels deep.
• In this manual, MP3 files are referred to as tracks.
Cleaning Discs
• For best results, keep your discs clean. Fingerprints
and dust can affect the sound quality and should be
removed as follows. Using a clean soft cloth, wipe
from the center outwards, as shown. Never wipe in a
circular direction.
✔
• To remove stubborn dust or dirt, wipe the disc with a
damp soft cloth, and then dry it with a dry cloth.
• Never use solvent-based cleaning fluids, such as thinner or benzine, commercially available cleaners, or
antistatic sprays intended for vinyl records, because
they may damage the disc.
Storing Discs
• Don’t store discs in places subject to direct sunlight, or
near heat sources.
• Don’t store discs in places subject to moisture or dust,
such as in a bathroom or near a humidifier.
• Always store discs in their cases and vertically. Stacking, or putting objects on unprotected discs may cause
warping, scratches, or other damage.

• If the remote controller doesn’t work reliably, try
replacing the batteries.
• Don’t mix new and old batteries or different types of
batteries.
• If you intend not to use the remote controller for a long
time, remove the batteries to prevent damage from
leakage or corrosion.
• Flat batteries should be removed as soon as possible to
prevent damage from leakage or corrosion.
Notes:
• The remote controller may not work reliably if the
DX-C390 is subjected to bright light, such as direct
sunlight or inverter-type fluorescent lights. Keep this
in mind when installing the DX-C390.
• If another remote controller of the same type is used in
the same room, or the DX-C390 is installed close to
equipment that uses infrared rays, the remote controller may not work reliably.
• Don’t put anything, such as a book, on the remote controller, because the buttons may be pressed inadvertently, thereby draining the batteries.
• The remote controller may not work reliably if the
DX-C390 is installed in a rack behind colored glass
doors. Keep this in mind when installing the
DX-C390.
• The remote controller will not work if there’s an
obstacle between it and the DX-C390’s remote control
sensor.
11
Connecting the DX-C390
Audio Connections
• Read the manuals supplied with your other audio
equipment.
• Don’t connect the power cord until you’ve completed
all audio connections.
The DX-C390 has analog and digital (coaxial and optical) audio outputs. The digital outputs offer the best
audio quality, so if your digital recorder or amp has a
digital input you should use it.
ANALOG AUDIO OUTPUT
If your hi-fi amp or AV receiver doesn’t have a digital
input, use the supplied RCA/phono audio connecting
cable to connect the DX-C390’s ANALOG AUDIO
OUTPUTs to your amp’s analog CD inputs.
Notes:
• RCA/phono audio connecting cables are usually color
coded: red and white. Use red plugs to connect rightchannel inputs and outputs, and use white plugs to
connect left-channel inputs and outputs.
• Push each plug in all the way to
make a good connection (loose
connections can cause noise or
malfunctions).
• To prevent interference, keep
audio cables away from power
cords and speaker cables.
DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT
If your CD-R, MiniDisc, or DAT recorder has a digital
input, use a commercially available coaxial or optical
fiber digital audio cable to connect the DX-C390’s
COAXIAL or OPTICAL DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT
to your recorder.
You can also use the digital outputs to connect to an amp
that has a digital input, for the best audio quality.
Notes:
• With MP3 tracks, the digital outputs only work if the
sampling rate is 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz, or 48 kHz.
Optical Digital Output
The DX-C390’s optical digital connector has a shuttertype cover that opens when an optical plug is inserted,
and closes when it’s removed. Push the plug in all the
way.
Caution: To prevent shutter damage, hold the optical
plug straight when inserting and removing.

Connecting the DX-C390—Continued
 Connections
With  (Remote Interactive) you can control the
DX-C390 together with your other -compatible
Onkyo AV components. With some Onkyo AV receivers
you can use one remote controller to control all your
Onkyo components and use the following special 
functions:
To use the  functions, you need to connect one of the
DX-C390’s  connectors to an  connector on
another AV component in your system.
See the manuals supplied with your other -compatible AV components for more information.
■ Auto Power On
If your DX-C390 is connected to an -compatible
Onkyo AV receiver, when you turn on the DX-C390, the
AV receiver will turn on and select the DX-C390 as the
input source.
Notes:
• To use  you must make an analog RCA/phono
connection between your DX-C390 and Onkyo AV
receiver even if they are connected digitally.
■ Direct Change
If your DX-C390 is connected to an -compatible
Onkyo AV receiver, when you start playback on the
DX-C390, the AV receiver will select the DX-C390 as
the input source.
■ Auto Power Off
When you set an -compatible Onkyo AV receiver to
Standby, all other AV components connected via 
enter Standby as well.
• The DX-C390 has two  connectors. You can connect either one to your Onkyo AV receiver. The other
connector is for connecting additional -compatible
components.
• Connect the DX-C390’s  connector to only Onkyo
AV components. Connecting to other manufacturer’s
AV components may cause them to malfunction.
• Some Onkyo -compatible AV components may not
support the special functions described here.
■ Dimmer
When you dim the display brightness on an -compatible Onkyo AV component, the displays on all other AV
components connected via  are dimmed as well.
To use  you must make an analog audio connection (RCA/phono)
between the DX-C390 and your other Onkyo equipment even if they are
connected digitally.
Disconnect the power
cord before making any

FOLDER NAME (SCROLL/NOT SCROLL)
This preference determines whether or not the folder
name scrolls across the display when an MP3 folder is
selected.
BAD NAME (REPLACE/NOT REPLACE)
This preference determines whether or not track and
folder names that contain undisplayable characters are
replaced with “TRACK n” or “FOLDER n,” “n” being
the track or folder number. When set to NOT REPLACE,
displayable characters are displayed and underscores are
used in place of any undisplayable characters.
For ID3 tags, underscores are used in place of undisplayable characters regardless of this preference.

30 minutes. The default setting for North American
models is OFF. For other models it’s ON.
Note:
Track and folder names are scrolled in Navigation mode
(page 17) regardless of the TRACK NAME and
FOLDER NAME preferences.
Extra Items
ID3 VER 1 (READ/NOT READ)
This preference determines whether or not version 1.0/
1.1 tags are read and displayed. When set to NOT
READ, version 1.0/1.1 tags will not be displayed.
ID3 VER 2 (READ/NOT READ)
This preference determines whether or not version 2.3/
2.4 tags are read and displayed. When set to NOT
READ, version 2.3/2.4 ID3 tags will not be displayed.
CD-EXTRA (AUDIO/MP3)
This preference applies to CD Extra discs and determines whether music in the audio session or MP3 tracks
in the data session are played.
JOLIET (USE SVD/ISO9660)
This preference applies to MP3 discs in Joliet format and
determines whether the DX-C390 reads the SVD data or
treats the disc as an ISO 9660 disc. Normally, this preference doesn’t need to be changed.
SVD (Supplementary Volume Descriptor) supports long
file and folder names and characters other than letters
and numbers. Some CD burning software refers to the
Joliet format as “Windows format.”
Initializing the MP3 Preferences
This section explains how to initialize the MP3 preferences to their default values.
You must use the buttons on the DX-C390 for this procedure, not the remote controller.
1. Stop playback.
If the Memory function is on, turn it off.
2. Press and hold the STOP [] button until “SETTING” appears on the display (about 4 seconds).
3. Press the []/[] button.
“INITIALIZE” appears on the display.
4. Press the STOP [] button.
“CANCEL” appears on the display.
5. Use the []/[] buttons to select “EXECUTE.”
If you want to cancel this procedure, select “CANCEL.”
6. Press the STOP [] button.
The MP3 preferences are initialized, “INITIALIZED” appears on the display, and then the
DX-C390 enters Standby mode.
Troubleshooting
If you have any trouble using your DX-C390, check the following table for possible causes and remedies. If you still
can’t resolve the issue yourself, please contact your Onkyo dealer.
Trouble
No power.
The remote controller does
not work.
Possible Cause
The power cord is not connected properly.
CD playback skips.
Can not enter track numbers for memory playback.
It takes a long time to
locate certain tracks.
Connect the power cord properly to a suitable wall
outlet (page 14).
There are no batteries in the remote controller.
Install new batteries (page 11).
The batteries are flat.
Replace with new batteries (page 11).
The batteries are installed incorrectly.
Check the batteries and correct as necessary
(page 11).
You’re not pointing the remote controller at the
DX-C390’s remote sensor.
Point the remote controller at the DX-C390’s
remote sensor (page 11).
You’re too far away from the DX-C390.
Use the remote controller closer to the DX-C390
(page 11). The remote controller has a range of
approximately 5 meters (16 ft.).
A strong light source is interfering with the
DX-C390’s remote sensor.
Make sure that the DX-C390 is not subjected to
direct sunshine or inverter-type fluorescent lights.
Relocate if necessary.
If the DX-C390 is installed in a cabinet with
colored glass doors, the remote controller may
not work reliably when the doors are closed.
Open the doors, or use a cabinet without colored
glass.
The disc is upside down.
Load the disc with the label-side facing up
(page 14).
The disc is dirty.
Remove the disc and clean it (page 7).
Condensation has formed inside the DX-C390.
Remove your discs and leave the DX-C390 turned
on for several hours until the condensation has
evaporated.
The CD-R/RW disc is nonstandard.
See “Disc Notes” on page 6.
Can not play a CD.
There is no sound.
Remedy
The DX-C390 is not connected properly.
Check all connections and correct as necessary.
The wrong input source is selected on your
amp.
Check your amp’s input source setting. Refer to
your amp’s manual.
The DX-C390 is subject to vibration.
Install the DX-C390 somewhere free of vibration.
The disc is dirty.
Remove the disc and clean it (page 7).
The disc is very scratched.
Buy a new disc.
No disc is loaded.
Load a disc (page 14).
The track number entered doesn’t exist on the
disc.
Enter the correct track number (page 18).
The disc is dirty.
Remove the disc and clean it (page 7).
The disc is very scratched.
Buy a new disc.
 does not work.
There’s no RCA/phono analog audio connection.
To use  you must make an analog audio connection (RCA/phono) between the DX-C390 and
your Onkyo AV receiver, even if they are connected digitally.
The digital outputs do not
work.
The sampling rate of the currently playing MP3
track is not 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz, or 48 kHz.
Select a track with a sampling rate of 32 kHz,
44.1 kHz, or 48 kHz.
Abnormal Behavior
The DX-C390 contains a microcomputer for signal processing and control functions. In very rare situations, severe
interference, noise from an external source, or static electricity may cause it to lockup. In the unlikely event that this
should happen, unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, wait at least five seconds, and then plug it back in again.
