Turn On/Off Messages: When
turning on and off the receiver, messages will appear on the display. There are
two turn-on messages ("Hello" and "Welcome") and two
turn-off messages ("See You" and "Good-bye"). These messages
can be customized to any 8-character message you desire. You can also turn off
the messages entirely in the menu.
Sound Stage: You can select the
position of the sound stage to best serve a particular seat. There are 4 preset
positions and 2 user modes, each stored in one of the preset buttons (1-6). They
are accessible when you are in Balance/Fader adjust mode in the Audio Menu. Each
preset has a corresponding balance and fader setting which presents a balanced
sound to that particular seat or group of seats. Furthermore, you can adjust the
preset sound stage settings and re-store them under the same preset number. Note:
These Sound Stage settings do not use any digital time alignment or time
delay to create the effect.

front panel. Note: CD Text is not a function of the current compatible CD

characteristics in one of the two User EQ curves (Presets 5-6). You can also
turn off the EQ curves if desired.

sound. You may select from four levels of boost, or you may turn the X-Bass

A changer adapter (023BPVA08) and an aux input
harness (023AUXIN1R) must be purchased and connected
to this unit (as long as a CD changer is not connected) to provide input for a
portable cassette, MD or MP3 player. Once connected, you can enter a name for the input of up to 8 characters. You can also set the level of the Aux input source in comparison to the other sources. When a CD changer is connected to the head unit, there is no place to connect the AUX input adapter, so CD changer use prevents access
to the AUX input feature.

compatible with the optional RC823 wireless credit card-sized remote. You can
also control the unit with an optional "Thummer"-type steering wheel
