The built-in MOSFET50 amplifier will work its magic on your vehicle's speaker system, bringing new power (25 watts RMS/50 peak x 4) and vitality to your music. Expand your entertainment options with the auxiliary input — plug in a portable MP3 or MiniDisc player, or even an XM Satellite Radio tuner. For hours of non-stop music, connect an optional Panasonic CD changer.

Super High Definition Bass lets you crank up your bass output even at high volumes — select "BOOM" for a strong boost or "TIGHT" for moderately emphasized bass. If you crave more power and thump, add component amps and subs to the three sets of 2.5-volt preamp outputs. Panasonic includes a wireless remote so you can keep your eyes on the road.

Product Research

Changer Controls


3-D Dot Matrix Display: This advanced full-dot LCD + CFL technology enables 4-level gradation for remarkably smooth and attractive display capability. A dedicated high-capacity display memory allows 3-D animations and richly detailed setup screens, and the CFL backlight means it's super-bright.

Day & Night Faceplate: During daylight conditions, the faceplate is a solid brushed aluminum color. At night, or whenever it's dark in your vehicle, the outside edges of the faceplate illuminate in blue.

Super Bright Display: With a Super Bright Display, this unit provides high visibility even in daylight, thanks to its CFL (cold cathode fluorescent lamp) backlight. There's even a 3-step dimmer so you can adjust the brightness to match day and night driving conditions. In addition, you can adjust the display contrast from 1 to 5 for optimum readability.

Spectrum Analyzer Display Patterns: You can select from the following 6 display patterns: A (shows a cube that continues to change), B (shows a globe that continues to change), C (shows the image of a skateboard), D (shows a text pattern), E (shows the image of a circuit), or STD (shows a standard 9-band spectrum analyzer).

MOSFET50 Amplifier: This receiver is equipped with a 50 watts x 4 (peak) MOSFET amplifier for low distortion and high power output.

Multi-Stage Noise Shaping: This technology helps prevent zero-cross distortion and non-linear distortion. It requantizes the CD data, "shaping" it to move digital noise out of the audible range. Pulse width modulation (PWM) then reconstructs the analog waveform with true precision.

S-HDB (Super High Definition Bass): This feature accentuates bass output even at high volumes. This is different from ordinary loudness controls that often become ineffective when volume is raised. You may select "BOOM" (strong bass boost), "TIGHT" (moderately emphasized bass), or "Off".

Alphatuner V: The tuner is designed to help suppress multi-path distortion and reduce the problem of radio signal reflections in metropolitan areas. It also features increased sensitivity for weak signal areas.

Subwoofer Level Adjustment: The volume level of the subwoofer preamp outputs is adjustable from -6dB to +6dB in 2dB increments.

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. The jacks are on a 5" long pigtail attached to the back of the unit.

Blinking Security Indicator: When the face is removed, a red LED blinks on the front panel of the radio. The security indicator can be deactivated.

Changer Controls

Changer Controls: In addition to basic disc navigation features, this unit has the following changer controls: direct disc access, disc intro scan, track intro scan, track repeat, disc repeat, disc random, and all disc random.

Multiple Changer Control: Using the optional CA-CD55 dual changer adapter, you can control two compatible Panasonic changers with this head unit.


Display Illumination/Clock Display: Pressing and holding the Source button turns off audio output, but the clock display and face/button illumination remain on. Using the DISP button in this mode, you can 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).
