In addition to rock, jazz, country, blues, classical and other genres on more than 60 music channels, you also have over 30 channels of news, sports, talk and entertainment, plus over 20 dedicated channels of XM instant traffic and weather. With XM Radio, you can look forward to a mobile listening experience that's always fresh and never boring.

MOS-FET High Power Amp for Pure Sound
A MOS-FET high power amplifier (50W x 4 max.) delivers pure signal output by minimizing crossover distortion during current-to-voltage conversion of the signal from the preamp stage. What does this mean? Benefits are apparent in an excellent high-range signal-to-noise ratio, reflecting minimal treble noise. The result is highly faithful sound reproduction with expressive musical detail.

3D Graphics in Motion
Spice up your drive with our CD receiver's 3D action graphics that look especially cool on the illuminated blue display. There are five motion patterns, including Formula 1 racecar action and a scenic cityscape called Metropolis, and 10 still images to choose from.

Play Many Popular Music Formats
This CD receiver not only plays CDs, but also CD-R/RW discs, including MP3 and WMA formats. If you've got WMA and MP3 music files recorded on the same CD-R/RW disc, no problem-our CD receiver can handle it. For your listening pleasure, the acclaimed Alphatuner V FM/AM tuner circuitry is built into this unit as well, and there are 18 FM and 6 AM presets. Through years of experience, our advanced technology has made it possible to pack all of these incredible features into such a compact 1-DIN form.

Easily Upgrade to an External Amp System
You can easily upgrade to an external amp system by using the dual preamp outputs on this 4-channel head unit. This allows for a maximum output voltage of 5V and output impedance of 60 ohms that not only help protect the signal from external noise, but also permit low power amp gain for powerful reproduction of transient peaks with minimum distortion. In addition, a non-fading, low impedance subwoofer output is available to make adding a dedicated subwoofer amplifier to your system easy.

Personalize Your Sound with the Great Equalizer
Personalize your sound system with our SQ7 seven-band graphic equalizer. Not only does it provide manual adjustments to help you fine tune your music, but it also offers a series of one-touch equalizer settings, such as Rock, Pop, Vocal, Jazz, Club and Flat.
