Connecting the system control
Connecting system control cords after connecting a KENWOOD
audio component system lets you take advantage of convenient
system control operations.
This unit is compatible only with the [SL-16] mode. The system
control operation is not available if the unit is connected in the
[XS8], [XS], or [XR] connection mode.
If your component has the mode select switch, set the connected
components to the [SL16] mode.
• You may connect the system control cord to either the left or right jack.

• In order to take advantage of the system control operations, the
components must be connected to the correct jacks. To use a CD
player it must be connected to the CD jacks. To use a cassette deck
(or MD recorder) it must be connected to the MD/TAPE jacks. When
using more than one CD player (etc.) only the one connected to the
specified jacks may be connected for system control.
• Some CD players and cassette decks are not compatible with the
[SL16] system control mode. Do not make system connections with
equipment that is not [SL16] compatible.
• Some MD players are not system control compatible. You cannot
make system control connections to this kind of equipment.
1. [SL16] equipment cannot be combined with [XR], [XS], and [XS8]
equipment for system operations. If your equipment consists of this
kind of combination, please do not connect any system control cords.
Even without system control cords, normal operations can be carried
out without effecting performance.
2. Do not connect system control cords to any components other than
those specified by KENWOOD. It may cause a malfunction and
damage your equipment.
3. Be sure the system control plugs are inserted all the way in to the
