Overview

Our take on the Blaupunkt MP3000

You want a Blaupunkt, but you rock with MP3s? Say no more! The MP3000 CD receiver plays MP3 files plus Windows Media Audio (WMA) files stored on a CD-R or CD-RW. For easy identification, the blue and white display scrolls MP3 text information (ID3 tags). Not sure where you saved your favorite song? No problem — use the file/folder search function to locate it quickly.

You want a Blaupunkt, but you rock with MP3s? Say no more! The MP3000 CD receiver plays MP3 files plus Windows Media Audio (WMA) files stored on a CD-R or CD-RW.

No problem — use the file/folder search function to locate it quickly.

Of course, the MP3000 will also play your prerecorded CDs, and its sensitive ORC V tuner will make a believer out of AM/FM fans. The built-in amp has plenty of power (23 watts RMS/47 peak x 4) for most situations — if you want some extra punch, you'll find a set of preamp outputs for connection to an external amplifier. The MP3000 also has an auxiliary input for plugging in a portable cassette deck, an MD player, or a "plug and play" satellite radio tuner. An optional wireless remote is available.

Source Tone Memory: Each source (AM/FM/CD) can store its own bass and treble levels.

Selectable Maximum Turn-on Volume: You may set the maximum volume level that will be active when the unit is turned on. Once you've set the maximum turn on volume into memory, you won't have to worry about being overpowered by an unexpected, high-volume blast of output when you turn the unit on.

Illumination/Clock Display Note

Display Illumination/Clock Display: The clock display and display illumination may be set to turn on with the ignition, or you may configure the unit so the clock and display illumination are active only when the unit is on. When your vehicle has no accessory position on the ignition switch and both power wires of the radio are connected to constant power, the unit should be set so the clock and illumination only display when the unit is on.
