Spectrometer: When playing
music, a five band level indicator gives a graphic representation of the audio
signal level. When making balance, fader, bass, and treble adjustments, the
level indicator gives a graphic representation of the adjustment being made.
EQ: This unit has a 5-band digital parametric
EQ. The EQ allows you to select Sub Low EQ (32 to 50Hz), Low EQ (63 to 250Hz),
Mid EQ (315 to 1250Hz), Mid/High EQ (1600 to 6300Hz), and High EQ (8000 to 12500Hz).
Once chosen, each frequency can be adjusted from +8 to -8dB. In addition
to the independently adjustable EQ bands, this unit has the following EQ
presets: Classic, Pop, Jazz, Rock, Techno and Speech.
Car Acoustics Presets: To
further improve the sound properties in your vehicle, you can match your vehicle
to one of six Car Acoustics Presets: Compact, Limousine (Sedan), Van, Roadster,
Mini, or Truck.
Sound: This function automatically adjusts the
volume of the unit depending on your driving speed. The automatic volume
adjustment can be set to one of six levels (0-5). The head unit's white wire
needs to be connected to the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS). With the signal from
the Vehicle Speed Sensor, this feature can increase and decrease the volume
level of the unit. Assuming the vehicle has a non-mechanical speedometer, this
feature will work.
Technology: As a
result of advanced high-integration strategies, the complete functionality of a
car radio has been reduced to a two-chip set (an analog tuner IC and a digital
radio IC). The digital IC performs the following functions: A/D conversion at
the IF-level (intermediate frequency level), IF filtering, AM/FM demodulation,
stereo and RDS decoding, RDS error correction, tone control (bass, treble,
loudness, EQ), D/A conversion at audio frequencies, and volume control. The
digital chip contains additional inputs for analog (AUX input) and digital
sources (CD/CD changer). Compared to conventional Blaupunkt receivers, the
number of components required to perform the functions listed above has been
reduced by 200.
(Radio Data System): This
unit supports the following RDS functions:
Name Display: When a broadcast containing
RDS station name information is received, the name will appear in the
Text: A number of radio stations use the
RDS signal to transmit advertising, or other text in place of their station
names. These "radio texts" will appear in the display. You can
adjust the radio so the "radio texts" do not appear.
Browsing: If a
radio broadcasting network has more than one station, you can page through
the "broadcasting network"
Clock Set: When "CLOCK AUTO" is
selected in the menu, the unit will automatically set the time when tuned to
a RDS station that broadcasts RDS-CT (clock time) information.
Adaptive IF Switching:
The SHARX feature may be turned On or Off. When turned on, the SHARX feature
changes the IF (intermediate frequency) bandwidth to eliminate most, if not all,
interference caused by strong adjacent radio stations.
CD Naming: This unit allows you
to name up to 30 of your CDs. Each name can be up to eight characters long. The
name you give to the CD will not be deleted when you remove the CD from the CD
player. When the CD is inserted again at a later date, the name will appear in
the display. When a compatible CD changer is connected,
names for up to 99 CDs may be entered. Each name for a disc loaded in the
changer can be up to seven characters long.
Pause: This unit allows you to pause CD
and CD changer playback.
Input "Ready": Two optional aux
input harnesses (items 023AUXIN and 023AUXIN2) may be purchased and connected to
this unit to provide inputs for portable cassette, MD, or MP3 players. The input
on each optional harness is a 3.5mm male stereo mini-jack. When a CD changer is
connected to the head unit, there is no place to connect the Aux 1 (item
023AUXIN) input harness, but the Aux 2 input is not affected. Since the Aux 2
input is not affected by a CD changer, you may connect a CD changer and item
023AUXIN2 at the same time.
with Optional Thummer III Remote: This
unit is equipped with an input that will accept the connector from the Thummer
III steering wheel remote control's receiving "eye"; this unit is not
compatible with RC-06H remote (item 023RC06H).
Turn On with 1-Hour Shut Off: This unit
may be turned on while the ignition is off (no power supplied to the accessory
12V wire), then, after an hour of playback, the unit automatically shuts off
to prevent the battery from going dead.
Clock Recall: When the ignition is turned
off, this feature allows you to briefly display the clock by pressing the
Mute Wire: The cellular mute wire may be
connected to the muting output wire found on some cell phones. When this wire
has been connected to an appropriate cell phone muting output and the cell phone
rings, this wire receives a signal and automatically mutes the head unit's
Mounting: The CD mechanism can
be mounted at any angle from -10 to 105 degrees, giving you greater mounting
System: The menu system allows you to
customize the unit's settings. You may access the menu system by pressing the Menu
button. The menu system options are as follows:
Display: Allows you to turn the clock
display on or off. When the clock display is turned on, the clock will
appear when the ignition is on, but the stereo is off.
Allows you to select one of six levels to boost the bass and
treble when the volume is low
Volume: This feature allows you to set
the default turn-on volume. The volume level can be adjusted from 0 to 66.
- Mute Level:
Allows you to set the mute volume. When you
press the mute button, the volume of the unit will be reduced to the volume
level specified. The mute level can be adjusted
from 0 to 66.
Volume: Allows you to choose the volume
level that output will be set to when the telephone mute function is
activated. The volume level can be adjusted from 0 to 66.
2: Allows you to turn the Aux 2 input
on or off
1: Allows you to turn the Aux 1 input
on or off. This menu option will not appear when a CD Changer is connected,
because you cannot connect an Aux input adapter and a CD Changer to the Aux
1/CD changer connector on the back of this unit.
- FM Tuner:
Allows you to select one of the
following tuning settings: America (AM 10 kHz, FM 200 kHz), Europe (AM 9

Manual. If Auto is selected and the station being received supports the RDS
clock time function, the unit's clock will be set automatically. When in
Manual mode, you must manually set the unit's clock.
Set: Allows you to manually set the

- CD Naming: When
a compatible CD changer is connected, names for up to 99 CDs may be entered.
Each name can be up to seven characters long. The name you give to
the CD will not be deleted when you remove the CD from the changer. When the
CD is inserted again at a later date, the name will appear in the display.
Illumination/Clock Display: When the Clock
Display has been turned on, pressing and holding the source button turns off
audio output, but the clock display and face/button illumination remain on. When
the Clock Display has not been turned on, pressing and holding the source button
turns the unit off completely. This unit's
illumination and clock are "keyed" only when the Clock Display has
been turned on. When the Clock Display has not been turned on, the unit is off
and power is supplied to both power wires, nothing illuminates. If power is then
supplied to the orange wire, the ON button illuminates.
Wire: The orange illumination wire does
nothing unless power is supplied to the yellow constant and red power wires. If
the unit is off and you apply voltage to the orange wire, only the blue
"ON" button will illuminate.
