    • RDS functions like AF (alternative frequencies search) and TA (traffic announcement standby) are only available when your radio is tuned in to an RDS station.

  • Best Stations Memory (BSM) Yes

    Best Stations Memory scans and memorises the six strongest, clearest stations available on each band.
  • Auto Alternative Frequency Search Yes

    Auto Alternative Frequency Search occurs when the tuner cannot get a good reception, and automatically searches for a different radio station in the same network.
  • Auto/Manual Frequency Search Yes

    Auto / Manual Frequency Search enables you to search for broadcast stations manually or automatically.

    The tuner will scan the frequencies until a broadcast strong enough for good reception is found.

Audio

  • Advanced Sound Retriever Yes

    ASR stands for Advanced Sound Retriever.
    Our ASR sound technology automatically restores the harmonics which were lost during the audio compression process.
    ASR adjusts frequency response and sound pressure, especially in the high and low frequency ranges, to revitalise the density and presence of the compressed signal.
    The result is an improved sound quality with its staging, density and feeling restored to the level of the original recording.
  • Attenuator Yes

    When you press the Attenuator (the ATT button), it immediately lowers the volume by around 90%. Press once more to return to the original volume level.
  • Auto EQ Yes

    Let your system take care of your sound. Our new Auto EQ feature monitors and analyses the acoustics inside of your car and uses the measurements to automatically adjust your audio equalisation levels.

    Using a 3-band parametric equaliser Auto EQ adjusts the front and rear speakers separately. The result is audio perfectly suited to your in-car environment. (Please note: an optional microphone is required.)

  • Auto Time Alignment Yes

    The auto time alignment is automatically adjusted for the distance between each speaker and the listening position.

    Auto time alignment adjusts the speaker sound output timing within your car for each speaker in steps of 2.5cm, so the sound form each speaker will reach your (the driver’s) ears at the same time.

    Auto time alignment automatically estimates the delay from each speaker to the listening position and adjusts the time alignment accordingly.
  • Automatic Sound Leveliser (ASL) Yes

    Compensating for additional outside noise, the automatic sound leveliser uses signal processing to automatically and electronically adjust the internal volume so that your music always sounds right.
  • Balance Yes

  • Bass, Mid, Treble Yes

  • Bass Booster Yes

  • Built in DSP Yes

    DSP uses digital technology to correct a vehicle's interior acoustics.

    The advanced DSP of this model combines the Burr-Brown 1-bit DAC with 24-bit resolution, Advanced Auto Time Alignment and Auto EQ, to achieve sound-tuning perfection.
  • D/A Converter Yes, Texas Instruments

  • Digital Direct Yes

  • Display Off Mode Yes

    For those who demand absolute audio perfection, this mode is available to eliminate even the slightest noise that could be created by the OEL displays power conversion circuits.

    In this way, the audio signal remains pure and unaffected by noise and unprecedented low distortion is realised.
  • Fader Yes

  • High Pass Filter Yes

    When the subwoofer is connected and you do not want low sound to play from the front or rear speakers, turn the high pass filter on. Only fre-quencies higher than those in the selected range will be output from the front or rear speakers.
  • Low Pass Filter Yes

    When you activate the Low Pass Filter, only those frequencies below a specified frequency are output through a specified speaker.
  • Listening Position Selector Yes

    The Digital Listening Position Selector automatically adjusts the sound field and stereo image to optimal levels for each of the four preset seating positions —front left, front right, rear left and rear right.
  • Loudness Yes

    At low volume levels, ambient noise levels in your car can overpower low and high frequency sounds in music.

    Loudness control proves a one-button way to boost these frequencies and provide a better overall sound at low level volumes.
  • Source Level Adjuster (SLA) Yes

    Source Level Adjuster (SLA): Allows you to independently adjust the volume ratio between all of the headunit's sources (using the FM volume level as a reference), so the start-up volume between sources will always be the same.
  • Spectrum Analyser Yes
