I was wondering what COMP and AVC means on the stock single cd player. I played around with it and noticed some differences, but wanted to know exactly what it means.

AVC is auto volume control. will turn the vol up as speed increases and down as it decreases o keep a constant volume with the windows down.

comp is audio compression if im not mistaken... i believe it helps with the high amount of compression there is on mp3/burned discs, as well as compression on cd's as well

Awesome. Thanks for the quick responses. What would you recommend for the settings on these?

COMP does indeed mean compression - and it works just like a pro audio or musicians compressor, i.e. it squashes the dynamic range so that, among other things, you hear all the quiet bits in music better in the far-from-perfect audio environment of a car driving around.

This is especially important with, say, classical music and old album rock; however, today's pop/rock recordings (meaning everything since the 90's), assuming that's what you listen to, are ALREADY so compressed that COMP won't do much for you.

I don't use either AVC or COMP because I'm super-critical of audio and can usually hear them working to the degree that they annoy me - but they're nevertheless cool features.

AVC is very much a personal preference setting. Play around with it and see if you notice differences at different speeds. Its a cool feature that I kind of miss now that I have an aftermarket HU.
