Thank you very much for purchasing a Panasonic CD Player/Receiver.
The newly developed Alpha tuner enhances the reception sensitivity of FM broadcasts.
It is also less affected by receiving conditions inside and outside the vehicle.
The sensitivity in the AF mode is adjustable and the region-to-region signal strength is
memorized, which means the automatic best program reception can be achieved.
