How to use this manual

This manual mainly explains operations using the remote, but the same operations can also be performed using the buttons on the unit having the same or similar names.

Playable discs

You can play back the following discs on this system. Other discs cannot be played back.

List of playable discs

Format of discs

Disc logo

Audio CDs

CD-R/CD-RW (audio data/MP3 files*)

* Except for JAX-N44/S44

Discs that this system cannot play

CD-ROMs

CD-Rs/CD-RWs other than those recorded in the following formats:

music CD format

MP3 format that conforms to ISO96601) Level 1/Level 2, Joliet or Multi Session2)

A disc that has a non-standard shape (e.g., card, heart).

A disc with paper or stickers on it.

A disc that has the adhesive, cellophane tape, or a sticker still left on it.

1)ISO9660 Format

The most common international standard for the logical format of files and folders on a CD-ROM. There are several specification levels. In Level 1, file names must be in the 8.3 format (no more than eight characters in the name, no more than three characters in the extension “.MP3”) and in capital letters. Folder names can be no longer than eight characters. There can be no more than eight nested folder levels. Level 2 specifications allow file names and folder names up to 31 characters long. Each folder can have up to 8 trees.

For Joliet in the expansion format (file and folder names can have up to 64 characters) make sure of the contents of the writing software, etc.

2)Multi Session

This is a recording method that enables adding of data using the Track-At-Once method. Conventional CDs begin at a CD control area called the Lead-in and end at an area called Lead-out. A Multi Session CD is a CD having multiple sessions, with each segment from Lead-in to Lead-out regarded as a single session.

CD-Extra: This format records audio (audio CD data) on the tracks in session 1 and data on the tracks in session 2.

Mixed CD: This format records data on the first track and audio (audio CD data) on the second and subsequent tracks of a session.

4GB

Notes on CD-R and CD-RW

Some CD-Rs or CD-RWs cannot be played on this system depending upon the recording quality or physical condition of the disc, or the characteristics of the recording device. Furthermore, the disc will not play if it has not been correctly finalized. For more information, see the operating instructions for the recording device.

Discs recorded on CD-R/CD-RW drives may not be played back because of scratches, dirt, recording condition or the driver’s characteristics.

CD-R and CD-RW discs recorded in multisession that have not ended by “closing the session” are not supported.

The system may be unable to play MP3 format files that do not have the “.MP3” extension.

Attempting to play non-MP3 format files that have the “.MP3” extension may result in noise or malfunction.

With formats other than ISO9660 level 1 and 2, folder names or file names may not be displayed correctly.

The following discs take a longer time to start playback.

a disc recorded with complicated tree structure.

a disc recorded in Multi Session.

a disc to which data can be added (nonfinalized disc).

Music discs encoded with copyright protection technologies

This product is designed to playback 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.

Cautions when playing a disc that is recorded in Multi Session

If the disc begins with a CD-DA session, it is recognized as a CD-DA (audio) disc, and playback continues until an MP3 session is encountered.

If the disc begins with an MP3 session, it is recognized as an MP3 disc, and playback continues until a CD-DA (audio) session is encountered.

The playback range of an MP3 disc is determined by the tree structure of files produced by analyzing of the disc.

A disc with a mixed CD format will be recognized as a CD-DA (audio) disc.

Notes

You cannot change the play mode during playback.

Some time may be needed to start playback of discs recorded in complex configurations such as many layers.

When the disc is inserted, the player reads all the tracks on that disc. If there are many albums or nonMP3 audio tracks on the disc, it may take a long time for play to begin or for the next MP3 audio track to start play.

Do not save unnecessary albums or tracks other than MP3 ones in the disc to be used for MP3 listening. We recommend that you do not save other types of tracks or unnecessary albums on a disc that has MP3 audio tracks.

An album that does not include an MP3 audio track is skipped.

Maximum album number: 150 (including root folder)

The maximum number of MP3 audio tracks and albums that can be contained on a single disc is 255.

Playback is possible up to 8 levels.

MP3 audio tracks are played back in the order that they are recorded on the disc.

Depending on the encoding/writing software, recording device, or the recording media used at the time an MP3 audio track is recorded, you may encounter such problems as disabled playback, sound interruptions, and noise.

Using the Radio Data

System (RDS)

(European model only)

What is the Radio Data System?

Radio Data System (RDS) is a broadcasting service that allows radio stations to send additional information along with the regular program signal. RDS is available only on FM stations.*

Note

RDS may not work properly if the station you are tuned in is not transmitting the RDS signal properly or if the signal is weak.

*Not all FM stations provide RDS service, nor do they provide the same types of services. If you are not familiar with the RDS system, check with your local radio stations for details on RDS services in your area.

Receiving RDS broadcasts

Simply select a station from the FM band.

When you tune in a station that provides RDS services, the station name appears in the display.

To check the RDS information

Each time you press DISPLAY, the display changes cyclically as follows:

Station name1) t Preset number2) and frequency t Clock display t Effect status

1)If the RDS broadcast is not properly received, the station name may not appear in the display.

2)Preset number is displayed only if you preset radio stations (page 14).

Additional Information

Precautions

On operating voltage

Before operating the system, check that the operating voltage of your system is identical with the voltage of your local power supply.

On safety

The unit is not disconnected from the AC power source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall outlet, even if the unit itself has been turned off.

Unplug the system from the wall outlet (mains) if it is not to be used for an extended period of time. To disconnect the power cord (mains lead), pull it out by the plug. Never pull the cord itself.

Should any solid object or liquid fall into the system, unplug the system and have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it any further.

AC power cord must be changed only at the qualified service shop.

On placement

Do not place the system in an inclined position.

Do not place the system in locations where it is;

Extremely hot or cold

Dusty or dirty

Very humid

Subject to vibrations

Subject to direct sunlight.

Use caution when placing the unit or speakers on surfaces that have been specially treated (with wax, oil, polish, etc.) as staining or discoloration of the surface may result.

On heat buildup

Although the system heats up during operation, this is not a malfunction.

Place the system in a location with adequate ventilation to prevent heat buildup in the system.

If you continuously use this system at a high volume, the cabinet temperature of the top, side and bottom rises considerably. To avoid burning yourself, do not touch the cabinet.

To prevent a malfunction, do not cover the ventilation hole for the cooling fan.

On the speaker system

This speaker system is not magnetically shielded and the picture on TV sets may become magnetically distorted. In such a case, turn off the power of the TV sets once, and after 15 to 30 minutes turn it on again. If there seems to be no improvement, locate the speaker system further away from the TV set.

On operation

If the system is brought directly from a cold to a warm location, or is placed in a very damp room, moisture may condense on the lens inside the CD player. Should this occur, the system will not operate properly. Remove the disc and leave the system turned on for about an hour until the moisture evaporates.

When you move the system, take out any disc.

If you have any questions or problems concerning your system, please consult your nearest Aiwa dealer.

Notes on discs

Before playing, clean the disc with a cleaning cloth. Wipe the disc from the center out.

Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner, commercially available cleaners or anti-static spray intended for vinyl LPs.

Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or heat sources such as hot air ducts, nor leave it in a car parked in direct sunlight.

When using discs that have glue or similar tacky substance on the label side of the disc or that used a special ink when the label was printed, there is a chance that the disc or label may become attached to parts inside this unit. When this occurs, it may not be possible to remove the disc, and may also cause this unit to malfunction. Be sure to check that the label side of the disc is not sticky before using.

The following types of disc should not be used:

Rental or used discs with attached seals where the glue extends beyond the seal. The perimeter of the seal on the disc is tacky.

Discs that have labels printed using a special ink that feels tacky when touched.

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.

Cleaning the cabinet

Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with a soft cloth slightly moistened with mild detergent solution. Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or solvent such as thinner, benzine or alcohol.
