MP3/WMA Playback: The Eclipse
CD3000 can play MP3 and WMA files recorded onto CD-R and CD-RW discs in ISO 9660
Level 1 and 2. Recommended bit rates for MP3 are
64-320 kbps and 48-320 kbps. Variable bit
rates from 64 to 320 kbps for MP3 and 48 to 320 kbps can be used, however there will likely be a discrepancy in the time
display. The receiver can recognize a total of 999 files and folders, 255 folders, or 8
directory layers on a single disc. The receiver can show the names of albums and artists, and ID3 Tags
CD Text: If a CD Text disc is
inserted, the receiver will display the artist name, disc title and track title
ESN Security: This unit is
equipped with the Eclipse Security Network. You can register a particular music
CD as a "key" device which unlocks the security. If the registered CD is not
detected, the navigation and audio functions will be disabled when the main unit
is disconnected from and reconnected to the vehicle's battery. You can turn the
security on or off, or change the "key" CD as desired.
Tilting Motorized Faceplate:
The CD3000 is equipped with a motorized faceplate with a bright 3-color
dot-matrix display. You can change the contrast, plus adjust the angle of the
faceplate for best visibility.
Area Shot: Using the special E-iSERV
website from Eclipse, you can download map data for the U.S. and Canada (from
NAVTEQ) and driving instructions to your destination and burn the data to a CD-R
for importing into the CD3000. The Area Shot feature allows you to display the
driving instructions to your destination on the receiver, including arrows
indicating turn directions. Text information includes intersection street names
and turn directions. A maximum of 9 characters can be displayed on a single
screen, with the excess characters scrolling across the screen.
Radio Band Switching: If you
wish to take the receiver out of the country, the tuner frequencies and interval
can be switched on any of four possible regions:
- USA: 87.7-107.9 MHz (0.2
- Asia (includes Europe):
87.5-108.0 MHz (0.05 MHz step)
87.5-108.0 MHz (0.1 MHz step)
- Latin America:
87.75-107.9 MHz (0.1 MHz step)
3-Band Graphic Equalizer (3-band
GEQ): You can adjust the bass +/-12dB at 80Hz, the midrange from +/-12dB at
630Hz, and the treble +/-12dB at 10kHz.
Loudness: To provide a boost of
bass and treble when listening at low levels, you can turn on the Loudness
contour. When activated, the loudness provides a +10dB boost at 100Hz and a
+6.5dB boost at 10kHz.
Equalizer Mode: The CD3000 has
an Equalizer Mode with 3 preset values of bass, midrange and treble according
to the type of music you're listening to. You can also store your own settings
in the Custom Mode, or bypass the EQ settings in the Defeat mode. The EQ presets have the following settings:
- Power (bass emphasized):Bass +06, Mid +1, Treble +02
- Vocal (midrange emphasized):Bass +02, Mid +6, Treble +02
- Sharp (treble emphasized): Bass 0,
Mid +1, Treble +04
- Custom:Bass 0, Treble 0 (stores user preferences)
- Defeat:Bass 0, Treble 0 (turns off EQ mode)
Preamp Outputs: The CD3000
features three sets of 5-volt, low-impedance (55Ω) preamp outputs, including a
non-fading output for a subwoofer. You can independently adjust the level of the
non-fading output (0 to 6).
Source Volume Controls (SVC):
Because the level of each source can vary greatly, the Source
Volume Controls allow you to raise or lower the volume of AM radio and CD audio compared to the FM radio signal. The volume differences can
be set within a range of -10 to +20.
Sound Adjustment Mode: The
Sound Adjustment mode allows you to apply an 80Hz low pass filter (LPF) on the
non-fading output and a 100Hz high pass filter (HPF) on the front and rear
slope for the crossovers is 18dB/octave. In addition, you can choose between
normal and reverse phase on the non-fading output, whichever makes the best
improvement on the sound.
Illumination: During normal
operations, the main display is on and the Disc, AM/FM, Sound, and
Display buttons and the rings on the Audio Control and
Select dials are illuminated. When the vehicle's lights are turned on, the CD
Return, Power, up/down and the 6 preset buttons are illuminated as
well. The orange/white wire in the unit's harness must be connected to the
vehicle's headlight circuit in order for the additional buttons to illuminate
when the lights are turned on.
Optional Remote Control: The
CD3000 can be controlled by the optional RMC105 remote control (item #
099RMC105). With the remote you can
access the following functions: Power, Mode, Volume Up/Dn, Source select
(Disc/Tuner/Aux), Band select, Mute, Preset Channel Up/Dn, Disc Up/Dn, Track Up/Dn,
and Tune/Seek Up/Dn.
Compatible with Factory Steering Wheel Radio Controls: Through
the special E-iSERV website from Eclipse, you can download software that enables
factory steering wheel remote operation of the CD3000. This software can be
burned to a CD-R and imported into the receiver. Two wires (brown/black and
brown) in the supplied wiring harness need to be connected to factory wiring in
order for steering wheel remote commands can operate. To take advantage of the optional wired remote capability of this unit, you must have a vehicle with steering wheel radio controls. Note: Depending
upon the vehicle's make and model, not all downloaded material may be compatible
with steering wheel remote functions.
Auxiliary Input Ready: The optional
AUX105 Aux cord (item #099AUX105) can be plugged into the E-LAN
connector so you can connect an auxiliary source, such as a portable MP3 player
or plug-n-play satellite radio tuner. If the AUX105 is used, you
cannot add a CD changer.
iPod Ready: You can enjoy music from your Apple iPod
when it's connected to the head unit via the optional Eclipse iPC-106 Interface
Adapter for iPod (item # 099IPC106). The adapter is compatible only with iPods
with a dock connector. While connected, the unit will power the unit, and charge
the iPod's battery. You can perform playlist, album, artist, genre, or song
searches. Playback functions include track up/dn, fast forward/rewind, track
repeat, track random play, and album random play. Display selections include
song, album, or artist. The iPC-106's E-LAN pass-through allows you to add a CD
changer to your system.
HD Radio Ready: The CD3000 is
compatible with the optional HDR105 HD Radio Tuner (item #099HDR105). When the
HDR105 is connected, you can enjoy the digital
sound quality of your favorite radio stations that are now broadcasting in HD.
Digital broadcasts from FM stations sound as good as CDs, and AM stations sound as good
as today's analog FM stations. The tuner has an E-LAN pass-through connection,
allowing you to daisy chain an Eclipse CD changer.
SIRIUS Satellite Ready: The
SIRIUS Connect SIR-ECL1 (item # 099SIRECL1) plugs directly into the CD3000's
E-LAN bus connection to give you access to over 120 channels of digital-quality
radio programming, including 65 commercial-free music channels and over 55
channels of sports, news, and original programming. When you are listening to
SIRIUS programming, you can choose to display (one line) the channel name,
category name, song/program title, artist, or SIRIUS unit ID number. Long
names/titles will scroll across the display. The SIR-ECL1 has an E-LAN
pass-through connection that allows you to connect other compatible Eclipse
components such as a CD changer. Note: A subscription to SIRIUS is
required in order to receive programming.
