pg.137 Dolby Pro Logic Surround Sound HU-801 (option)



Dolby Pro Logic Surround Sound (HU-801 only)

During CD playback, Dolby Pro Logic Surround Sound, together with the speaker in the center of the dashboard, offers you very clear and realistic sound.

The Dolby unit divides the normal stereo channels from left - right to left - center - right. In addition, ambient surround sound is produced by the rear speakers. This ambient surround sound mirrors the resonance of a recording studio.

Most recordings today are made so that the vocalist/soloist is heard from the center foreground while the orchestra is heard over the entire left-right panorama as well as from behind. This enables the Dolby Pro Logic Surround Sound system to provide a unique listening experience.


Dolby Pro Logic Surround Sound

To select Dolby Pro Logic during CD playback, press " PL". "Dolby Pro Logic" is displayed. Press "OFF" to return to 2 channel stereo.

pg.140 Audio systems - general information



Cassettes

· Store cassettes in their cases.

· Do not touch the tape surface with your fingers.

· Tapes should not be exposed to direct sunlight or extreme temperatures.

· Keep tapes away from oil, grease and other contaminants.

· For optimal tape deck performance Volvo does not recommend the use of C-120 tapes.

· Take up slack using a pen or a pencil before inserting a cassette in the cassette slot.

Cassette cleaning

We recommend the use of the Volvo Cleaning Cassette available as a genuine Volvo accessory. Regular use improves sound quality, cleans vital parts and prevents tape tangle.

Compact disc care

· Before using a new disc for the first time, remove any burrs in the center/outer edge by running the stem of a pen or similar object around the hole/edge of the disc.

· Use high quality discs only.

· Keep the discs clean. Wipe them with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth, working from the center outwards. If necessary, dampen the cloth with a neutral soap solution. Dry thoroughly before using.

· Never use cleaning spray or antistatic liquid. Use only cleaners specifically made for CD's.

· Use discs of the correct size only (3.5" discs should never be used).

· Do not put tape or labels on the disc itself.

· Volvo does not recommend the use of plastic outer rings on the disc.

· Condensation may occur on discs/optical components of the changer in cold winter weather. The disc can be dried with a clean, lint-free cloth. Optical components in the CD changer may, however, take up to one hour to dry off.

· Never attempt to play a disc which is damaged in any way.

· When not in use, the discs should be stored in their covers. Avoid storing discs in excessive heat, direct sunlight or dusty locations.
