Classe Audio CDP-102 CD Player User Manual

brightness The brightness setting has three possible values: low, medium, and high. Select
the appropriate setting based on the level of ambient light typically found in
your listening room while using the system. A
high brightness setting usually
works best in brightly-lit rooms; you may find that a lower setting is less visually
intrusive under more subdued lighting conditions.
timeout If you prefer listening to music in a dimly-lit or darkened room, you may find
even the low brightness setting of the display somewhat distracting. If so, you
can vary the
timeout of the backlighting so as to turn it off entirely after a
period of inactivity you select.
In this context, activity refers to any use of the user interface. This includes hard
buttons, the LCD touchscreen, and the remote control.
For example, if you reduce the timeout to its minimum setting, the backlighting
will illuminate the display as soon as you interact with any of the disc player
controls, and stay on for only three seconds—just long enough for you to check
on something. If you continue to use any of the controls (at least once every
three seconds), the display will remain lit. It will then extinguish itself after three
seconds of inactivity on your part.
If you prefer the display to remain on whenever not in standby
, choose the
never timeout setting. The lamp in the LCD display was designed for harsh
automotive environments and will give you many years of reliable operation.
If you plan to leave the unit on continuously, however, we recommend that
you keep the timeout delay set to less than one minute. (Note that setting the
brightness to a lower setting does not increase the life of the lamp.)
language The language menu allows you to chose one of five languages for the
touchscreen menu. Classé have provided our international distributors with a
software tool that makes it possible for them to customize the translations to suit
their local customs and terminology, in an effort to ensure that the operation of
the disc player is as intuitive to use in every country as it is in our home country
of Canada.
temporary display When playing a DVD, the touchscreen displays the picture information in a
“preview” mode. This can be helpful in cueing up material before sending the
picture to the main display (saving your guests from the otherwise inevitable
FBI warnings). It is also a wonderful way of navigating through DVD-Audio
disc menu systems without having to turn on your main video display simply to
enjoy some music.
When you use any of the control functions of the disc player, the display will
change from its normal preview mode to display the user interface screens.
The temporary display setting determines how long this user interface remains
displayed before the touchscreen reverts to its usual preview mode.
