Install the player in a well-ventilated location where it
will not be exposed to high temperatures or humidity.
Do not install the player in a location which is exposed
to direct sunlight, or near stoves or radiators. Excessive
heat can adversely affect the cabinet and internal com-
ponents. Installation of the player in a damp or dusty
environment may aiso result in a malfunction and can
be hazardous. Avoid installation near cookers etc., where
the player may be exposed to oily smoke, steam or heat.

Installation guidelines

÷ Placing and using the compact disc player for long

periods on heat-generating sources such as amplifi-
ers or near spotlights, etc. will affect product perform-
ance. Avoid placing the player on heat-generating

÷ Install this compact disc player as far as possible away

from tuners and TV sets. A compact disc player in-
stalled in close proximity to such equipment may
cause noise or degradation of the picture.

÷ Noise may be noticeable when an indoor antenna is

used. In such cases, make use of an outdoor antenna
or turn off power to the compact disc player.

÷ When the unit is used in a loud-sound environment, e.g.,

near a speaker, sound skip may occur. Install the unit
away from the speaker or reduce the listening volume.

÷ Place this unit on a level surface and a stable platform.

÷ Be sure the player, including its audio and power sup-

ply cords, does not touch vibrating materials. Any
cause of vibration other than the insulators may cause
the disc to skip. Take special care when using the
player while it is installed in a carrying case.


Do not place on or against
vibrating materials!

Cleaning the player

To clean the PLAYER wipe with a polishing or a soft, dry
cloth. For stubborn dirt, moisten a soft cloth with a weak
solution of neutral detergent (diluted in five to six parts
water), wring the cloth well, and wipe away the dirt. Use
a dry cloth to wipe the surface dry. Do not use volatile
liquids such as benzene or thinner which will damage to
the unit.

CD lens cleaner

The player’s pickup lens should not become dirty in nor-
mal use. If for some reason, the lens becomes soiled
and malfunctions, contact your nearest PIONEER author-
ized service center. Lens cleaners for CD players are com-
mercially available, but special care should be exercised
in their use as some may cause damage to the lens.

Storing discs

÷ Discs are made of the same kinds of plastic used for

conventional analog audio records. Be careful not to
allow discs to warp. Always store discs in their cases
vertically, avoiding locations with high heat, humid-
ity, or extremely low temperatures. Avoid leaving discs
in cars; the interior of a car in direct sunlight can be-
come extremely hot.

÷ Always read and abide by the precautionary notes

listed on disc labels.


When this unit is brought into a warm room from previ-
ously cold surroundings or when the room temperature
rises sharply, condensation may form inside the unit and
impair its performance. In such cases, allow the unit to
stand for about an hour or raise the room temperature

Cleaning and handling compact discs

÷ The presence of fingerprints or smudges on the sur-

face of the disc will not directly affect the recorded
signals, but, depending on the degree of contamina-
tion, the brightness of the light reflected from the sig-
nal surfaces may be reduced causing degradation of
sound quality. Always keep your discs clean by wip-
ing them gently with a soft cloth from the inner edge
toward the outer edge.

÷ If a disc becomes very dirty, dampen a soft cloth with

water, (be sure to wring it out well) and wipe the away
dirt gently. Remove any water drops with another soft,
dry cloth.

÷ Do not use record cleaning sprays or anti-static agents

on discs. Never clean discs with benzene, thinner, or
other volatile solvents or damage to the disc surface
may result.

÷ With this player, use only those discs

which display the mark shown right
(Optical audio digital discs).

÷ When holding discs, do not touch their signal surfaces.

Hold by the edges, or by one edge and the center hole.

÷ Do not affix gummed labels or tape to the disc sur-

face. Also, do not scratch or damage the label.

÷ Discs rotate at high speeds inside the player. Do not

use damaged, cracked or warped discs.


Do not play a CD with a special shape

Do not play a CD having other shape than a circular disc,
such as heart shaped disc. Otherwise malfunction may
