no way to make the clock display by default

3 agree

The display doesn't shows music info (folder, artist, song, etc) when playing a CD or USB as a default. U need to push 'D' and then it appears for a while only. Annoying and dangerous to the traffic.

1 agrees

a number of translation errors in the manual, although nothing critical that will affect setup

The front USB port can be used to play back MP3 or WMA files on a storage device as well as connect directly to an iPod, and the built-in CD player can play audio discs or data discs with compatible files. Output runs through 4 channels at 45 watts, and dual 2 volt RCA outputs are available for additional rear or subwoofer drivers. Bass output is enhanced with a subwoofer volume control and built-in low-pass filters, and the Magna Bass EX Dynamic Bass Enhancement fills out the lower range.

You just go into the settings menu and disable the screen saver. Then the display button alternates between the clock or artist info.
