The strong, onboard amplifier packs plenty of power to fill your speakers with clean sound. If you've got a larger system in mind, use the set of preamp outputs to connect an external amp or powered sub. Panasonic's SQ sound shaping tool makes it easy to get the sound you want, with four preset tone curves along with bass and treble controls.

    Features

    MP3 Compatible: The CQ-C1303U can play MP3 files recorded onto CD-R and CD-RW discs in ISO 9660 Level 1/Level 2, Apple Extension to ISO 9660, Joliet, and Romeo. The player can support up to 999 files, 255 files in one folder, 8 levels, and 255 folders.

    CEA-2006 Compliant: The specifications given by Panasonic for the built-in amplifier comply with the CEA-2006 mobile amplifier power testing and measurement standards from the CEA (Consumer Electronics Association). All manufacturers who comply with the standard can display the CEA-2006 logo on their product.

    Sound Quality (SQ): In addition to the bass and treble adjustments (+/- 12dB @ 100 Hz and 10kHz), the unit's Sound Quality function allows you to apply various sound adjustments at the touch of a button in accordance with your musical tastes. There are four SQ settings:

    • SQ-Rock: speedy and heavy sound; exaggerates bass and treble
    • SQ-Pop: wide-ranged and deep sound; slightly emphasizes bass and treble
    • SQ-Vocal: clear sound; emphasizes middle tone and slightly emphasizes treble
    • SQ-Flat: flat frequency response; no emphasis applied

    Display Note: Pressing and holding the Source button turns the unit off completely. After the unit has been turned off, you can use the DISP button to switch the clock display and face/button illumination on and off. If you leave the clock display and face/button illumination on, they are "keyed." If you turn the clock display and face/button illumination off, they only turn on when the unit is turned on ("unit on" operation).

    Note: The Source button stays lit even with the clock display and other button illumination turned off.
