• With DVD-V 5.1 Surround media, surround sound is maintained until Step 4 of the Fade control is reached while fading rearward. At that point the audio system output changes to Stereo to prevent the loss of Center channel output when the full rearward fade position is reached.

If the Rear Seat Audio (RSA) is turned on, the radio disables FADE and mutes the rear speakers.
