Important safety instructions

Please read and strictly observe the following instructions!

You are not permitted to disassemble, modify or repair the car radio. Never open the case of the car radio; it does not contain any serviceable parts! If the case is open, there is a risk of fatality due to electric shock. Do not give your car radio and especially the accessories to children. Never let your children use electrical devices without supervision. Children are not always able to recognise potential hazards. Also keep plastic packaging away from children. There is a danger of suffocation. The car radio and the accompanying components must not be exposed to dripping or sprayed water. Make sure that no containers filled with liquid, such as bottles or cups, are placed in the vicinity of the device. Make sure that the display is not subjected to any knocks. This can damage the display. Please familiarise yourself with the different functions of your device before you begin driving. Excessively high volumes can pose a risk for you and other road users. Therefore, always set the volume at such a level that ambient noises (horns, sirens etc) can still be heard. Multimedia CDs also contain recordings of files other than audio files. If you play such a CD despite the warning information, it may result in noise at a volume that endangers traffic. Furthermore, damage may be caused to the power amplifier and speakers. Do not use the car radio at an excessive volume. This poses a risk to your hearing.

English

Please make any adjustments to the settings only when your vehicle is parked as your concentration could otherwise be adversely affected.

The SilverCrest CRB-532 Bluetooth car radio supports the formats CD-Audio; CD-R; CD-RW and MP3/WMA/OGG-CD. Note: Conditional on the quality differences of the media as well the characteristics of the recording, it may happen that some individually recorded CDs are unable to be read. Such events do not constitute a malfunction of the device. Audio CDs (CD-R and CD-RW) that are recorded individually have to be finalised at the end of the burning process. Note that the file names of the audio tracks have to correspond to ISO-9660 standard. During the playback of MP3 CDs, individual tracks may be skipped or not played back correctly. This may be due to the respective disc configuration, the decoder software, or the hardware that was used for the recording. Copy-protected CDs do not correspond to the specifications of audio CDs (CD-DA), do not carry the respective logo, and can therefore cause playback errors.
