How many portable CD players have you seen
with a remote as complicated as this one? Not too many I'll bet! The DAV309
comes with a small remote control that measures 3.25" x 2". The keys on the
remote enable the user control over every aspect of the player from up to
about 7 feet away, and within 60 degrees of the sensor. The only key which is
important and not there is the power key. Power for the unit (either batteries
or through the AC adapter) is controlled from a small switch on the side.
Included among the remotes 32 buttons are the following:
Numbers 1-10/0, OSD, Time, Rewind, Fast Forward, R/L Mode, Play/Pause, Volume
(-0), Step, Return, Volume (+), Stop, Pal/NTSC, Skip Previous, Skip Next, Slow,
Mode, PBC, Tone Control, and Digest.
The remote comes loaded and ready to go from NAPA with a
Panasonic CR2025 3V button cell. The battery is accessible from a small port at
the base of the remote which pulls out so the battery can be replaced.
