AC adapter caution
• Make sure to grasp the body of the AC adapter
when removing it from the power outlet. If you pull
the power cord, it may become damaged which
could lead to fire and/or electrocution.
• Do not attempt to plug in or remove the AC
adapter with wet hands. This may result in
electrocution.
• Insert the prongs of the AC adapter all the way into
the power outlet. If the connection is incomplete,
heat may be generated which could lead to fire.
Furthermore, contact with the connected prongs
of the adapter may result in electrocution.
• Do not insert the AC adapter into a power outlet
where the connection remains loose despite
inserting the prongs all the way into the outlet.
Heat may be generated which could lead to fire.
Consult with the retailer or an electrician
regarding replacement of the power outlet.
• Do not place the unit, a piece of furniture, etc., on
the power cord, or pinch the cord. Never make a
knot in the cord or tie it with other cords. The
power cords should be routed such that they are
not likely to be stepped on. A damaged AC adapter
and power cord can cause a fire or give you an
electrical shock. Check the AC adapter and the
power cord once in a while. When you find it
damaged, ask your nearest PIONEER authorized
service center or your dealer for a replacement.
Radio wave caution
This unit uses a 2.4 GHz radio wave frequency, which is
a band used by other wireless systems (Microwave
ovens and Cordless phones, etc.). In this event noise
appears in your television image, there is the possibility
this unit (including products supported by this unit) is
causing signal interference with the antenna input
connector of your television, video, satellite tuner, etc. In
this event, increase the distance between the antenna
input connector and this unit (including products
supported by this unit).

• A separate contract with/payment to an Internet
service provider is required to use the Internet.
POWER-CORD CAUTION
Handle the power cord by the plug. Do not pull out the
plug by tugging the cord and never touch the power
cord when your hands are wet as this could cause a
short circuit or electric shock. Do not place the unit, a
piece of furniture, etc., on the power cord, or pinch the
cord. Never make a knot in the cord or tie it with other
cords. The power cords should be routed such that they
are not likely to be stepped on. A damaged power cord
can cause a fire or give you an electrical shock. Check
the power cord once in a while. When you find it
damaged, ask your nearest PIONEER authorized service
center or your dealer for a replacement.

Chapter 6:
Disc playback
This system can play back a standard CD, CD-R/RW in the CD
format and CD-R/RW with MP3 or WMA files, but cannot
record on them. Some audio CD-R and CD-RW discs may not
be playable due to the state of the disc or the device that was
used for recording.
MP3:
MP3 is a form of compression. It is an acronym which stands
for MPEG Audio Layer 3. MP3 is a type of audio code which is
processed by significant compression from the original audio
source with very little loss in sound quality.
• This system supports MPEG-1/2 Audio Layer 3 (Sampling
rates: 8 kHz to 48 kHz; Bit rates: 32 kbps to 320 kbps).
• During VBR file playback, time counter in the display
may differ from its actual playback time.
WMA:
WMA (Windows Media Audio) files are Advanced System
Format files that include audio files which are compressed
with Windows Media Audio codec. WMA is developed by
Microsoft as an audio format file for Windows Media Player.
• This system supports WMA (Sampling rates: 32 kHz/44.1
kHz/48 kHz; Bit rates: 64 kbps to 320 kbps).
• During VBR file playback, time counter in the display
may differ from its actual playback time.

to read an MP3/WMA disc than a normal CD
(approximately 20 to 90 seconds).
• When the beginning of the first track is reached during fast
reverse, the unit will enter the playback mode (only for CD).
• If TV or radio interference occurs during CD operation,
move the unit away from the TV or radio.

Using the tuner
Listening to the radio broadcasts
The following steps show you how to tune in to FM radio
broadcasts using the automatic (search) and manual (step)
tuning functions. Once you are tuned to a station you can
memorize the frequency for recall later. See Saving station
presets below for more on how to do this.
Tuning
1 Press the  STANDBY/ON to turn
the power on.
2 Press TUNER.
3 Press TUNE +/– on the remote control to
tune in to the desired station.
Automatic tuning:
Press and hold TUNE +/–, scanning will start automatically
and the tuner will stop at the first receivable broadcast
station.
Manual tuning:
Press the TUNE +/– repeatedly to tune in to the desired
station.
Note
• When radio interference occurs, automatic tuning may
stop automatically at that point.
• Automatic tuning will skip weak signal stations.
• To stop the automatic tuning, press .
• When an RDS (Radio Data System) station is tuned in,
the frequency will be displayed first. Finally, the station
name will appear.
• Full auto tuning can be achieved for RDS stations using
Auto Station Program Memory (ASPM) mode, see
page 37.
To receive an FM stereo transmission:
• Press ST/MONO to select stereo mode and “AUTO” will
be displayed.
Improving poor FM reception:
1 Press ST/MONO repeatedly to select MONO.
This will change the tuner from stereo to mono and usually
improve the reception.
Saving station presets
If you often listen to a particular radio station, it’s convenient
to have the unit store the frequency for easy recall whenever
you want to listen to that station (Preset tuning). This saves
the effort of manually tuning in each time. This unit can
memorize up to 30 stations.
1 Tune to a station you want to memorize.
See Tuning for more on this.
2 Press MEMORY/PROGRAM.
The preset number will flash.
3 Press PRESET +/– to select the preset
channel number.
4 Press MEMORY/PROGRAM to store that
station in memory.
If the preset number has changed from flashing to lighting,
before the station is memorized, repeat the operation from
step 2.
• Repeat steps 1 to 4 to set other stations, or to change a
preset station. When a new station is stored in the
memory, the station previously memorized for that
preset channel number will be erased.
Note
• The backup function protects the memorized stations for
a few hours should there be a power failure or the AC
power cord become disconnected.

Using the Radio Data System (RDS)
An introduction to RDS
Radio Data System (RDS) is a system used by most FM radio
stations to provide listeners with various kinds of
information—the name of the station and the kind of show
they’re broadcasting, for example.
One feature of RDS is that you can search by type of program.
For example, you can search for a station that’s broadcasting
a show with the program type, JAZZ.
You can search the following program types:
Searching for RDS programs
You can search a program type listed above.
1 Press TUNER on the remote control.
2 Press RDS PTY on the remote control.
“SELECT” will appear for about 6 seconds.
3 Press / or / to select the
program type you want to hear.
Each time the button is pressed, the program type will appear.
If the button is held down, the program type will appear
continuously.
4 While the selected program type is
displayed (within 6 seconds), press RDS PTY
again.
After the selected program type has been lit for 2 seconds,
“SEARCH” will appear, and the search operation will start.
Note
• If the display has stopped flashing, start again from step
2. If the unit finds a desired program type, the
corresponding channel number will be lit for about 8
seconds, and then the station name will be displayed.
• If you want to listen to the same program type of another
station, press the RDS PTY while the channel number or
station name is flashing. The unit will look for the next
station.

Information provided by RDS
Each time the RDS DISPLAY is pressed, the display will
switch as follows:
When tuning in to a station other than an RDS station or to an
RDS station which sends weak signal, the display will change
in the following order:
Using the Auto Station Program
Memory (ASPM)
While in the ASPM operation mode, the tuner will
automatically search for new RDS stations. Up to 30 stations
can be stored.
If you have already stored some stations in memory, the
number of new stations you can store will be less.
1 Press TUNER on the remote control.
2 Press and hold down RDS ASPM on the
remote control.
After “ASPM” has flashed for about 4 seconds, scanning will
start (87.5 MHz to 108 MHz).
After scanning, the number of stations stored in memory will
be displayed for 4 seconds, and then “END” will appear for 4
seconds.
To stop the ASPM operation before it is
complete:
Press  while it is scanning for stations. The stations which
are already stored in memory will be kept there.
Note
• If the same station is broadcasting on different
frequencies, the strongest frequency will be stored in
memory.
• Any station which has the same frequency as the one
stored in memory will not be stored.
• If 30 stations have already been stored in memory, the
scan will be aborted. If you want to redo the ASPM
operation, erase the preset memory.
• If no station have been stored in memory, “END” will
appear for about 4 seconds.
• If the RDS signals are very weak, station names may not
be stored in memory.
• The same station name can be stored in different
channels.
• In a certain area or during certain time periods, the
station names may temporarily be different.
Notes for RDS operation
If any of the following events occur, it does
not mean that the unit is faulty:
• “PS”, “No PS” and a station name appear alternately,
and properly.
• If a particular station is not broadcasting properly or a
station is conducting tests, the RDS reception function
may not work properly.
• When you receive an RDS station whose signal is too
weak, information like the station name may not be
displayed.
• “No PS”, “No PTY” or “No RT” will flash for about 5
seconds, and then the frequency will be displayed.
Notes for radio text:
• The first 8 characters of the radio text will appear and
then they will scroll across the display.
• If you tune in to an RDS station which is not
broadcasting any radio text, “No RT” will be displayed
when you switch to the radio text position.
• While radio text data is received or when the text
contents change, “RT” will be displayed.

Do not place objects on this unit
Do not place any objects on top of this unit.
Do not obstruct the ventilation holes.
Do not use this unit on shaggy rugs, beds, sofas, etc., or
wrapped in cloth, etc. Doing so will prevent the heat from
dispersing, leading to damage.
Do not expose to heat.
Do not place this unit on top of an amplifier or other
component that generates heat. When rack mounting it, to
avoid the heat given off by the amplifier or other audio
component, place it on a shelf below the amplifier.
• Turn off the unit’s power when not using it.
• Depending on signal conditions, striped patterns may
appear on a TV screen and noise may enter the sound of
radio broadcasts when the unit’s power is on. If this
happens, turn the unit’s power off.
About condensation
If this unit is moved suddenly from a cold place into a warm
room (in winter, for example) or if the temperature in the room
in which this unit is installed rises suddenly due to heater
operation, etc., water droplets (condensation) may form
inside (on operating parts and the lens). When condensation
is present, this unit will not operate properly and playback is
not possible. Let this unit stand at room temperature for 1 or
2 hours with the power turned on (the time depends on the
extent of condensation). The water droplets will dissipate and
playback will become possible. Condensation can also occur
in the summer if this unit is directly exposed to the air flow
from an air-conditioner. If this happens, move this unit to a
different place.
Cleaning the product
• Unplug the power cord from the power outlet when
cleaning this unit.
• Clean this unit using a soft cloth. For tough dirt, apply
some neutral detergent diluted in 5 to 6 parts water to a
soft cloth, wring out thoroughly, wipe off the dirt, then
wipe again with a soft, dry cloth.
• Alcohol, thinner, benzene, insecticides, etc., could cause
the print or paint to peel off. Also, leaving rubber or vinyl
products in contact with this unit for long periods of time
could mar the cabinet.
• When using chemical-impregnated wipes, etc., read the
cautions included with the wipes carefully.
Cleaning the lens
• This unit’s lens should not become dirty in normal use,
but if for some reason it should malfunction due to dust
or dirt, consult your nearest Pioneer authorized service
center. Although lens cleaners for players are
commercially available, we advise against using them
since some may damage the lens.
Handling discs
Storing
• Always place discs in their cases and store them
vertically, avoiding hot, humid places, places exposed to
direct sunlight and extremely cold places.
• Be sure to read the cautions included with the disc.
Cleaning discs
• Discs may not play if there are fingerprints or dust on
them. In this case, use a cleaning cloth, etc., to gently
wipe the disc from the inside towards the outside. Do not
use dirty cleaning cloths.
• Do not use benzene, thinner or other volatile chemicals.
Also do not use record spray or antistatic agents.
• For tough dirt, apply some water to a soft cloth, wring out
thoroughly, wipe off the dirt, then wipe off the moisture
with a dry cloth.
• Do not use damaged (cracked or warped) discs.
• Do not let the signal surface of discs get scratched or
dirty.
• Do not attach pieces of paper or stickers to discs. Doing
so could warp discs, making it impossible to play them.
Also note that rental discs often have labels attached to
them, and the label’s glue may have oozed out. Check
that there is no glue around the edges of such labels
before using rented discs.
