Digital music fans! Aiwa's CDC-MA01 CD/MP3 receiver will play MP3 or Windows Media Files that you've recorded on CD-R or CD-RW. You can fit up to 200 songs on a disc, so it's like having a digital jukebox in your dash!

Digital music fans! Aiwa's CDC-MA01 CD/MP3 receiver will play MP3 or Windows Media Files that you've recorded on CD-R or CD-RW. You can fit up to 200 songs on a disc, so it's like having a digital jukebox in your dash!

This versatile receiver features the "Magic Flap" faceplate — a state-of-the-art security solution, dot matrix display, and easy-to-use control panel all rolled into one. When you power down, the motorized front panel with its red, white, and blue display flips over to become a featureless black panel in your dash.

Twenty-four watts RMS of 4-way high power delivers full-bodied sound, while 4, 2.2-volt preamp outputs will send a clean, strong signal to optional component amps for maximum efficiency. A steering wheel remote is included.

Features

Magic Flap: When you shut the unit down, the multicolor display flips over and the controls retract, leaving a nondescript black panel in your dash.

Selectable Key Button Illumination: The buttons are backlit with red illumination. The preset buttons have selectable illumination, allowing you to choose red or blue.

Display Contrast Adjustment: The display contrast may be adjusted to suit your viewing position and the lighting conditions of your vehicle.

MP3 Playback: This unit can play MP3 files recorded on CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW discs in ISO9660 format. This unit is compatible with constant and variable bit rates from 8kbps to 320kbps. During MP3 playback, the following functions are available:

  • Track Up/Down
  • Intro Play: plays the first 10 seconds of each track on a disc
  • Album Repeat Play: plays the current album repeatedly
  • One Track Repeat Play: repeats the current track
  • Random Play: plays all the tracks on a disc in random order
  • ID3 Tag Display: displays ID3 Tag information for tracks that have been recorded with ID3 tag information

WMA Playback: This unit can play WMA files recorded on CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW discs in ISO9660 format. This unit is compatible with constant and variable bit rates from 64kbps to 160kbps. During WMA playback, the following functions are available:

  • Album Up/Down
  • Track Up/Down

Front Panel Auxiliary Input: A front panel stereo mini-jack 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.

Source Level Adjuster: The relative level of each source (FM/AM/CD/AUX) may be adjusted, from -4 to +4, and the setting will be retained in memory. The level of each source can be set so there won't be drastic leaps in volume when changing from one source to another.

DSSA (Drivers Sound Stage Adjustment): This feature adjusts the sound stage and tone balance to sound best from one of the front seat positions. You may set the DSSA feature for the front left seat or the front right seat, or the DSSA feature may be turned off. When the DSSA feature is on, the balance, fader, bass and treble settings cannot be adjusted.

Advanced H-Bass (High Bass): Instead of a loudness control, this unit is equipped with an H-Bass function. You may choose from 3 H-Bass settings to obtain powerful bass, or the H-Bass feature may be turned off for normal playback.

Selectable Tuning Spacing: You may select standard spacing (100kHz for FM, 10kHz for AM) or European tuning spacing (50kHz for FM, 9kHz for AM). The spacing is set using a switch recessed into the bottom of the unit; when the switch is used to change the spacing, the reset button should be pressed to activate the new spacing.

My Information Switch (timer feature): This feature allows you to timer-activate the radio for up to two daily radio programs. You may set a start time, a stop time and a radio frequency into memory for up to two timer-activated radio playback events. To prevent battery wear, the timer will only turn the unit on when power is supplied to both power leads; when the unit is installed correctly, both power wires receive power only when the ignition key is in the "on" or "accessory" position.
