Overall, the stereo gets 5 eggs because it does what it does well. I might be ultra-picky with the file selection. The unit comes with two colors blue and green. The blue is BRIGHT (sunglasses at night), the green is a lot better.

Music discs encoded with copyright protection technologies
This product is designed to play back discs that conform to the Compact Disc (CD) standard. Recently, various music discs encoded with copyright protection technologies are marketed by some record companies. Please be aware that among those discs, there are some that do not conform to the CD standard and may not be playable by this product.

Notes on discs

To keep a disc clean, do not touch its surface. Handle the disc by its edge. Keep your discs in their cases or disc magazines when not in use. Do not subject discs to heat/high temperature. Avoid leaving them in a parked car or on a dashboard/rear tray. Do not attach labels, or use discs with sticky ink/residue. Such discs may stop spinning when used, causing a malfunction, or may ruin the disc.

Note on DualDiscs

A DualDisc is a two sided disc product which mates DVD recorded material on one side with digital audio material on the other side. However, since the audio material side does not conform to the Compact Disc (CD) standard, playback on this product is not guaranteed.

About MP3 files

MP3, which stands for MPEG-1 Audio Layer-3, is a music file compression format standard. It compresses audio CD data to approximately 1/10 of its original size. The unit is compatible with the ISO 9660 level 1/level 2 format, Joliet/Romeo in the expansion format, ID3 tag version 1.0, 1.1, 2.2, 2.3 and 2.4, and Multi Session. The maximum number of: folders (groups): 150 (including root and empty folders). MP3 files (tracks) and folders contained in a disc: 300 (if a folder/file names contain many characters, this number may become less than 300). displayable characters for a folder/file name is 32 (Joliet), or 32/64 (Romeo); ID3 tag is 15/30 characters (1.0, 1.1, 2.2 and 2.3), or 63/ 126 characters (2.4). continue to next page t
Do not use any discs with labels or stickers attached. The following malfunctions may result from using such discs: Inability to eject a disc (due to a label or sticker peeling off and jamming the eject mechanism). Inability to read audio data correctly (e.g., playback skipping, or no playback) due to heat shrinking of a sticker or label causing a disc to warp. Discs with non-standard shapes (e.g., heart, square, star) cannot be played on this unit. Attempting to do so may damage the unit. Do not use such discs. You cannot play 8 cm CDs.
Playback order of MP3 files
MP3 Folder (group) MP3 file (track)
Note Be sure to create the ATRAC CD using authorized software, such as SonicStage 2.0 or later, or SonicStage Simple Burner 1.0 or 1.1, which are supplied with Sony Network products.
If you have any questions or problems concerning your unit that are not covered in this manual, consult your nearest Sony dealer.


Fuse replacement
Notes Be sure to finalize the disc before using on the unit. When naming an MP3 file, be sure to add the file expansion.mp3 to the file name. If you play a high-bit-rate MP3, such as 320 kbps, sound may be intermittent. During playback of a VBR (variable bit rate) MP3 file or fast-forward/reverse, elapsed playing time may not display accurately. When the disc is recorded in Multi Session, only the first track of the first session format is recognized and played (any other format is skipped). The priority of the format is CD-DA, ATRAC CD and MP3. When the first track is a CD-DA, only CD-DA of the first session is played. When the first track is not a CD-DA, an ATRAC CD or MP3 session is played. If the disc has no data in any of these formats, NO MUSIC is displayed.
When replacing the fuse, be sure to use one matching the amperage rating stated on the original fuse. If the fuse blows, check the power connection and replace the fuse. If the fuse blows again after replacement, there may be an internal malfunction. In such a case, consult your nearest Sony dealer.

This unit is designed for negative earth 12 V DC operation only. Do not get the leads under a screw, or caught in moving parts (e.g. seat railing). Before making connections, turn the car ignition off to avoid short circuits. Connect the power connecting lead to the unit and speakers before connecting it to the auxiliary power connector. Run all earth leads to a common earth point. Be sure to insulate any loose unconnected leads with electrical tape for safety. Notes on the power supply lead (yellow) When connecting this unit in combination with other stereo components, the connected car circuits rating must be higher than the sum of each components fuse. When no car circuits are rated high enough, connect the unit directly to the battery.

Connection example ()

Notes (-B) Be sure to connect the earth lead before connecting the amplier. The alarm will only sound if the built-in amplier is used.

If you have a power aerial without a relay box, connecting this unit with the supplied power connecting lead may damage the aerial.
Notes on the control and power supply leads The power aerial control lead (blue) supplies +12 V DC when you turn on the tuner. When your car has built-in FM/AM aerial in the rear/side glass, connect the power aerial control lead (blue) or the accessory power input lead (red) to the power terminal of the existing aerial booster. For details, consult your dealer. A power aerial without a relay box cannot be used with this unit. Memory hold connection When the yellow power input lead is connected, power will always be supplied to the memory circuit even when the ignition switch is turned off. Notes on speaker connection Before connecting the speakers, turn the unit off. Use speakers with an impedance of 4 to 8 ohms, and with adequate power handling capacities to avoid its damage. Do not connect the speaker terminals to the car chassis, or connect the terminals of the right speakers with those of the left speaker. Do not connect the earth lead of this unit to the negative () terminal of the speaker. Do not attempt to connect the speakers in parallel. Connect only passive speakers. Connecting active speakers (with built-in ampliers) to the speaker terminals may damage the unit. To avoid a malfunction, do not use the built-in speaker leads installed in your car if the unit shares a common negative () lead for the right and left speakers. Do not connect the units speaker leads to each other. Note on connection If speaker and amplier are not connected correctly, FAILURE appears in the display. In this case, make sure the speaker and amplier are connected correctly.
