If you're looking for a stereo to replace your car's factory radio, consider the CQ-C3303U CD player from Panasonic. It comes loaded with a variety of entertainment options for your ears, and offers expansion flexibility that you just won't get from a factory system.

You can play recordable discs, including those you've loaded with MP3 and WMA music files, and you can control a Panasonic satellite radio right from the faceplate. Best of all, you can even use Panasonic's optional iPod interface to manage your digital music library while you're on the go. An auxiliary input allows you to connect your non-iPod portable player or any other source to the system.

The CQ-C3303U also features a flip-down, detachable faceplate with a wide, easy-to-read blue display, along with a potent built-in amplifier that'll power up your tunes. Anyone in the car can play DJ with the wireless remote.

    Features

    Level Meter: The display features a one-line level meter at the bottom of the display. You can select one of four patterns or turn the level meter off.

    MP3/WMA Compatible: The CQ-C3303U can play MP3 and WMA 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 511 files, 255 files in one folder, 8 levels, and 255 folders.

    Satellite Radio Ready: You can connect a satellite radio tuner to the CQ-C3303U in a number of ways. The unit is directly compatible with the SIRIUS SIR-PAN1 Satellite Tuner for Panasonic (item # 607SIRPAN1). Additionally you can connect an independently controlled "plug 'n play" unit to the head unit through the rear aux input.

    Auxiliary Input: A set of female RCA jacks is provided to allow the connection of a portable audio source. Just connect your portable cassette, MD or MP3 player to this unit, and you can listen to the audio from the portable player through the speakers in your mobile audio system.

    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

    Mute/Attenuate: This unit allows you to choose between mute (volume at 0) or attenuate (volume decreased by 10 steps) when you want to decrease the volume instantly. After selecting mute or attenuate in the menu, pressing the Mute button activates either function and the Mute indicator light glows in the display.

    Remote Control: The CQ-C3303U is equipped with a wireless remote control (EUR7641010). The dimensions of the remote are: W=1.64", H=0.664", L=3.762". The remote is powered by a CR2025 lithium battery (supplied).

    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.

    Optional iPod Adapter: This receiver is compatible with the optional Panasonic CA-DC300U iPod adapter (item #133DC300). When an iPod is connected using the adapter, all of the iPod's controls will be disabled and it will be controlled from the receiver. With this interface, you'll be able to play your iPod music files through your Panasonic receiver and in most cases have all the titling information appear on the receiver's display.

    Optional Hands-Free Phone System: Connection of the optional Hands-Free Phone System (Hands-Free Kit featuring Bluetooth technology: item #133BT100) allows you to talk on a handsfree cellular phone if the phone supports Bluetooth.

    Note: This unit is designed only for receiving calls. It cannot send calls.

    Optional Expansion Module (hub unit): Connection of the Expansion Module (hub unit, CY-EM100U) allows you to connect up to 4 optional components. You can choose from the following devices: CD changer (maximum of 1 can be connected), iPod (maximum of 2 can be connected), Hand-Free Phone System (maximum of 1 can be connected), or SIRIUS tuner (maximum of 1 can be connected).

    CD Changer Controls

CD Changer functions include: Disc Skip, Direct Disc Select (remote only), Track Skip, Track Search (FF/RW), Disc Intro Scan, Track Intro Scan, Disc repeat, Track repeat, Disc random and Track random.
