Question about Marantz ZS5300 6-Channel Amplifier

1 Answer

I have a 6 CD Changer but dont know how to use it?

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.

How to use a renault cd changer A 42. We bought the car but dont know how to use the cd and we miss our music - help!!!!


surely u just put a cd in it, & press the cd botton on the dash of the radio?

yes I know it a ch changer in the boot that requires you to open it take out the stacker & replace it, then in the car somewhere on your dash board or radio is the mode button for changing the audio source from radio to cd, google online for the make of car & cd changer & get an online manual, or go to the Renault forum. some cd changers require u to put the cds in upside down in the stacker, could be the prob if its automatic its not reading them.

Hey guys, I've just installed a CD changer in my car - having some difficulties getting it to work. After some Googling I came across this forum so I figured I'd see if any of you guys know where I'm...


there should be a small connector on the changer itself for the power ground and remote wire for power to the changer unit. the cord coming from the unit to the changer doesn't supply this power and this is why it wont eject and also your head unit wont recognize it until it gets powered up and able to communicate with the head unit and then it will show up as a selectable source when switching between sources of music. check the back of the changer for a small connector containing 3 or 4 pins and you should have a connector with the corresponding wires coming from it to plug into this spot after connecting the wires properly. if you bought it on ebay it is possible you didn't get this piece which is critical when connecting this changer.

How to work 12 disk changer in 2001 corvette with a bose radio


Hello my name is Ben. I have had 2 of these cars and they both worked the same. Once you load the cartridge with your CDs and insert the cartridge into changer and close that little door on the changer the rest is automatic. On the dash you will see two buttons to the left of the radio display. One says TAPE AUX. That is the button that switches from radio to the CD changer. Push the TAPE AUX button and the CD changer will play whichever CD is selected. The PREV button if pressed during the first 8 seconds of a song will go to the previous song, if PREV is pressed after 8 seconds it will go to the beginning of the song. The PROG button will go to the next CD. The NEXT button will go to the next song on the CD you are playing. The REV and FWD allow you to quickly move within a song, either forward or backward. If you have any other questions, just ask, I have the owners manual readily available. I know it should be in the car, LOL
