□ Have you ever applied a sound effect to Bluetooth Audio Music, and then changed the mode to Radio to listen to a radio program hosted by an announcer? 

   Since the effect suitable for playing a live performance was still active, you may have thought the radio host's voice sounded a bit strange. Now you can set the

   sound effect according to each media mode! Enjoy the sound that is right for you for each mode, such as Radio, USB Music, and Bluetooth Audio

   ▷ You can change the effect using the Quick Menu button on the screen for each Media mode

      ※ Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto sound effects work well with the Bluetooth Audio effects
