Question about Marantz ZS5300 6-Channel Amplifier
I bought a 98 corvette and it came with a 6 cd changer thats located in the back on the car.
Well inside the car in front aka my radio has an AM/FM radio and AUX.
But it only has TAPE AUX it doesnt have a CD AUX button anywhere?
The guy that sold it to me said you need to use it through the radio
station like pick up a station and the cd changer will work and such?
So how exactly does this work and what station.
I would really like if someone could fully explain this to me.
This is an older way that makers of CD changers used to get CDs into cars that didn't have them. This is what they tried to get people to by them. I was never a fan of this system as the sound quality was never better than listening to FM radio. There is a unit in the car, usually under the dash behind the glove box, that the CD changer is plugged into. This unit has the FM antenna from the car plugged into it, and then a cable that is the same as that coming from the antenna going from the unit under the dash plugged into the FM antenna jack of the radio in the dash. All this unit does is take the digital, high quality sound from the CDs, transmit it on an FM frequency (usually low on the FM band 80s, 90s or low 100s) and then you tune the radio into that FM frequency to get the sound form the CDs. Problem is, the sound quality was only as good as FM radio. A pretty poor way of getting CDs into cars. But they sold millions of these things. If it isn't working, the wiring may have come loose, the fuse to the unit under the dash might be blown, or something is disconnected. if you go all through the FM dial, 0.1 at a time and don't hear it, it is time to get under the dash near the glove box and poke around. Good luck. If it were me, I would take all this gear out and put a new CD/MP3 player where the factory radio currently sits.
