CAUTION: USE OF CONTROL OR ADJUSTMENT OR PERFORMANCE OF PROCEDURES OTHER THAN THOSE SPECIFIED HEREIN MAY RESULT IN HAZARDOUS RADIATION EXPOSURE. CAUTION: THE USE OF OPTICAL INSTRUMENTS WITH THIS PRODUCT WILL INCREASE EYE HAZARD. When you use this universal multi-CD system, the effective sensitivity of your radio will be reduced slightly. When you turn the car radio off, the system stays on. If you leave it on for a long time, the car battery may go flat. You can connect this unit to a Multi-CD controller (e.g. a head unit) with an IP-BUS cable (sold separately). If you do this, refer to the manual provided with the Multi-CD controller before using it to operate this unit. With this player, you can use the ITS functions to store up to 99 tracks per disc. Even if the Head units manual indicates ITS memory is up to 24 tracks per disc, this player can store up to 99 tracks per disc. When driving on an uneven road, the player may not reproduce every sound properly. When this universal multi-CD system is connected to a vehicles diversity antenna, there may be distortion if a station is broadcasting a strong signal on the frequency youre using for the system. If this occurs, switch to another frequency. During winter the inside of the vehicle may be very cold. If the heater is turned on and the player is used soon after, the disc or optical parts (prism, lens, etc.) may become misted up, and the player will not operate correctly. If the disc is misted up, wipe it with a soft cloth. If the optical parts are misted up, wait for about an hour for them to warm up. They will return to their normal condition. This product conforms to the track skip function of the CD-R disc. The tracks containing the track skip information are skipped over automatically.

In case of trouble When the unit does not operate properly, contact your dealer or the nearest authorized PIONEER Service Station.
Preparing to Use the Remote Controller Unit
This product is equipped with a remote control for convenient operation. Point the control in the direction of the unit to operate. Do not store the remote control in high temperatures or direct sunlight. The control may not function properly in direct sunlight. Do not let the remote control fall onto the floor, where it may become jammed under the brake or accelerator pedal.
Remove the battery if the remote control is not used for a month or longer. If the event of battery leakage, wipe the remote control completely clean and install a new battery.


Keep the lithium battery out of reach of children. Should the battery be swallowed, immediately consult a doctor. Slide out the tray on the back of the remote control and insert the battery with the (+) and () poles pointing in the proper directions. When using for the first time, pull out the film protruding from the tray. Use only lithium battery CR2025, 3 V.


Do not recharge, disassemble, heat or dispose of battery in a fire. Use a CR2025 (3 V) lithium battery only. Never use other types of battery with this unit. Do not handle the battery with metallic tools. Do not store the lithium battery with metallic materials.

Disc 1 to Disc 12

Changing disc trays
Disc tray Gently pull the disc tray out. Align the disc tray with the left and right grooves, and push it in until you hear it click.
Be sure to remove the disc before changing a disc tray. If the tray is not aligned with the right and left grooves, it cannot be pushed to the end. Do not bend or force the tray. Always load 12 trays in a magazine to prevent loss or warping of trays. If you load a disc with the label generally printed in black facing down, not only will the player not be able to recognize whether the disc is set or not, but also, the display unit will not display an error message to let you know about it. So make sure all the discs in each magazine have their label sides facing up.
Precautions when handling magazines
Do not put the magazine in a place where it will be exposed to high temperatures or direct sunlight. Do not disassemble the magazine. Take care not to drop the magazine or knock it against anything. Do not use cracked or warped trays. Never insert anything other than discs. Do not attach a label or tape to a disc. The use of benzine, thinner, insecticide, or other volatile chemicals may damage the magazine surface.

Notes on 8-cm (3-inch) CDs
Do not use an 8-cm CD adapter. If it is used, the player may fail. To load an 8-cm CD, you need a special 8-cm CD tray (Part No. CXB5931). Ask your Pioneer service station about it.

Attaching the label

Attach the supplied label in the specified position. Attaching the label in an incorrect place or attaching more than one label will cause malfunction.

Loading the magazine
