CD Changer Control
MP3/WMA Playback: The Eclipse
CD5000 can play MP3 and WMA files recorded onto CD-R and CD-RW discs in ISO 9660
Level 1 and 2. Recommended bit rates for MP3 are
64-320 kbps and for WMA, 48-320 kbps. Variable bit
rates from 64 to 320 kbps for MP3 and 48 to 320 kbps for WMA can be used, however there will likely be a discrepancy in the time
display. The receiver can recognize a total of 999 files and folders, 255 folders, or 8
directory layers on a single disc. The receiver can show the names of albums and artists, and ID3 Tags
for MP3 and WMA.
CD Text: If a CD Text disc is
inserted, the receiver will display the artist name, disc title and track title
ATRAC3: This unit can play
ATRAC3 music files recorded onto Memory Stick media. Compatible media include
MagicGate (MG) Memory Sticks with a capacity of up to 128 MB. Memory Stick Duo
must be used with the Memory Stick Duo adapter. Playback functions include
Next/Previous track, Fast Forward/Rewind, Intro Scan (first 10 seconds of each
track), Track Repeat, and Track Random. Artist names and track titles up to 14
characters can be displayed when recorded on the MG Memory Stick. No Memory
Sticks are supplied with the unit. Note: Memory Sticks containing ATRAC3
Plus, MP3 or WMA files are not compatible.
ESN Security: This unit is
equipped with the Eclipse Security Network with three levels of security:
- Key CD: You can register a particular music
CD as a "key" device which unlocks the security. If the registered CD is not
detected, the navigation and audio functions will be disabled when the main unit
is disconnected from and reconnected to the vehicle's battery. You can turn the
security on or off, or change the "key" CD as desired.
- Memory Stick: You can
record a Memory Stick and a secret code (security code) with the main unit.
Once constant power is restored, you can insert the Memory Stick, enter the
4-digit code, and unlock the unit.
- ACC Security: This method
can be used when Memory Stick security has already been set. When security
is set, button operations are disabled when the ignition switch is turned to
OFF and then back to ACC.
New Area Shot: Using the special E-iSERV
website from Eclipse, you can download map data for the U.S. and Canada (from
NAVTEQ) and driving instructions to your destination and burn the data to a CD-R
or Memory Stick
for importing into the CD5000. The New Area Shot feature allows you to display the
driving instructions to your destination on the receiver, including arrows
indicating turn directions. Text information includes intersection street names
and turn directions. With the optional GPS unit connected (item # 099GPS105),
you get automatic map switching, a guidance tone, and real-time readouts of the
distance remaining to the next intersection as the car travels.
Radio Band Switching: If you
wish to take the receiver out of the country, the tuner frequencies and interval
can be switched on any of four possible regions:
- FM: 87.7-107.9 MHz (0.2
- AM: 530-1710 kHz (10 kHz
- Asia (includes Europe):
87.5-108.0 MHz (0.05 MHz step)
- AM: 522-1629 kHz (9 kHz
87.5-108.0 MHz (0.1 MHz step)
- AM: 522-1710 kHz (9 kHz
- Latin America:
87.75-107.9 MHz (0.1 MHz step)
- AM: 530-1710 kHz (10 kHz
Loudness: To provide a boost of
bass and treble when listening at low levels, you can turn on the Loudness
contour. When activated, the loudness provides a +10dB boost at 100Hz and a
+6.5dB boost at 10kHz.
High-volt Preamp Outputs: The CD5000
features three sets of 8-volt, low-impedance (55Ω) preamp outputs, including a
non-fading output for a subwoofer. You can independently adjust the level of the
non-fading output (0 to 6).
This unit is equipped with an advanced 24-bit Delta Sigma D/A converter.
Source Volume Controls (SVC):
Because the level of each source can vary greatly, the Source Volume Controls
allow you to raise or lower the volume of AM radio, CD, and Memory Stick audio
compared to the FM radio signal. The volume differences can be set within a
range of -10 to +20.
Sound Adjustment Modes: The
CD5000 is equipped with two different Sound Adjustment modes:
- Normal: The sound
characteristics can be adjusted using comparatively simple settings.
Adjustments that can be made include:
- DSP: The DSP function
reproduces the sound characteristics in certain environments. You can
select between Concert, Live, Club, Cathedral, and Stadium. Selecting
"Defeat" turns off the DSP effect.
- Seat Position: When a
listener's seat is selected, the time taken for the sound to travel from
the speakers to the listener is adjusted for a more natural sound. You
can select up to four different seating positions can be set: Front
Left, Front Right, Front, and Rear.
- Crossover: The
crossover setting allows you to apply a low pass filter (LPF) on the
non-fading output and a high pass filter (HPF) on the front and rear outputs.
You can independently select a cut-off frequency between 63Hz and 200Hz for the LPF and the HPF. The
slope for the crossover can be set to 6dB, 12dB, or 18dB per octave or Pass (no crossover).
The Multi-Harmonizer uses harmonic synthesis to restore the
high-frequency component that is lost as a result of the compression
process for MP3/WMA/ATRAC3. Better sound can be obtained during MP3,
WMA, or ATRAC3 playback when the Multi-Harmonizer is activated. You can
select between high and low effectiveness.
- Non-fader: The phase
and output level of the non-fading output can be adjusted. You can also
select a stereo or mono signal.
- Advanced: Some of the
normal settings are used, plus these more sophisticated settings:
- SRS Circle Surround II:
Surround sound is achieved by combining SRS TruBass, which uses the
difference between two different frequencies to boost bass tones, and
SRS Circle Surround, which uses 2-channel correlation to expand the
- Parametric EQ: The
parametric equalizer lets you adjust 7 frequency bands by +/-10dB. Up to
5 EQ patterns can be saved in memory for future use. The following
frequencies can be selected for each band:
- Band 1: 63Hz,
- Band 2: 125Hz,
- Band 3: 250Hz,
315Hz, 400Hz, 500Hz
- Band 4: 630Hz,
800Hz, 1kHz, 1.25kHz
- Band 5: 1.6kHz,
2kHz, 2.5kHz, 3.15kHz
- Band 6: 4kHz,
5kHz, 6.3kHz, 8kHz
- Band 7:
10kHz, 12.5kHz, 16kHz
- Time Alignment: Using
4 parameters (position selector, vehicle type, tweeter settings, rear
speaker settings), the time alignment settings for each speaker are set
without having to measure speaker distances.
- E-iSERV Sound Effect
Customizations: The parametric EQ, time alignment, and crossover
settings can be adjusted using the head unit or through the Eclipse E-iSERV
website. Settings can be stored on CD-R or Memory Stick and uploaded to
the head unit.
Motion Picture Display: The
background display can be selected from three motion picture displays and a
source icon. The motion picture displays include rockets, dancing shapes, and
motorcycles. The source icons include a semi-circular disc for CD and a
satellite antenna for the tuner. You can download other motion picture displays
from the E-iSERV website, or create your own with up to 70 digital still images
sequenced into a 7-second animated clip.
Illumination: During normal
operations, the main display is on and the Disc, AM/FM, Sound, and
Display buttons and the rings on the Audio Control and
Select dials are illuminated. When the vehicle's lights are turned on, the CD
Return, Power, up/down and the 6 preset buttons are illuminated as
well. The orange/white wire in the unit's harness must be connected to the
vehicle's headlight circuit in order for the additional buttons to illuminate
when the lights are turned on. You can select one of five button illumination
combinations: Blue/Red, Blue/Green, Blue/Amber, All Red, or All Amber.
