MP3 CDs

The MP3 format (MPEG 1,2 & 2,5 Audio Layer 3) is an audio compression standard that permits recording of 10 times as many musical files on one CD.

Your radio only plays back files which have the extension У.mp3Ф.

Other types of files (.wav, .mpg4, .ogg, midi...) cannot be played back.

When you insert an MP3 CD, the radio searches all the musical tracks. Playback may require some tens of seconds before starting.

Playback of the MP3 CD is optimised if the level of the cover is limited to 2.

Burning format

Some burnt CDs cannot be read by your equipment (quality, speed of recording, etc.).

When you burn a CD-R or CD-RW, select the burning standard ISO 9660 level 1.2 or Joliet. Playback of other formats may not occur correctly.

Use the Joliet standard to burn multi-session CDs.

On a given CD, always use the same burning standard.

To obtain the best possible acoustic quality, select the lowest burning speed.

It can handle transmission speeds of 8 to 320 kbits/s and playback of 22.05 to 44.1 kHz.

MP3 CD player

Your Audio CD system may be MP3 compatible.

As you insert a CD recorded in MP3 format, playback starts of the first song of the first CD-cover.

You can select a particular track by using buttons N or K and CD-covers using buttons J or M.

To select a track

To display the list of CD-covers, press on button G.

Use buttons J or M to select the CD-cover you wish to listen to.

To open a CD-cover, press L.

Use buttons N or K to select the track you wish to listen to.

Validate with a press on L.

Menu

This menu is for activation/deactivation of three options:

Playback of the first 7 seconds (approx.) of each track of the CD.

Repetition of the current CDcover.

Random playback of CD-cover tracks by CD-cover.

This can be accessed in two ways:

Either by pressing button O and proceeding as for Scanning of RDS stations Ц the submenu for Audio Preferences.

Or, provided you are in CD source, by pressing on button L. You can then access the Audio menu.

Your Audio equipment may enable you to listen to musical works. Musical work is protected by law. Non-respect of the law can lead to prosecutions.
