IP Bus YesYou can control multiple sources through the IP-Bus connection; you can literally transform your car into a mobile multimedia centre. Add a DVD player or TV Tuner, for example.
Additionally, you can add several unique adapters that will enable you to enjoy your Bluetooth mobile phone, for example. Click the 'Accessories' tab above to see all your available options.
Optical Digital In Yes
Optical Digital Out Yes
Bluetooth is an industrial specification that provides a way to connect and exchange information between devices such as mobile phones, PCs, printers, digital music devices and game consoles over a secure, globally unlicensed short-range radio frequency.
Bluetooth offers you the convenience of true wireless in car communication, without having to hook up your Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone to any other hands-free kit, headgear or earpiece.
All the models in our Bluetooth range include a microphone.
Radio Data System (RDS) is a system for providing information along with FM broadcasts.
This inaudible information provides such features as program service name, program type, traffic announcement standby, automatic tuning and program type tuning, and is intended to aid you in finding and tuning in to a desired station.
• RDS service may not be provided by all stations.
• 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.
The Traffic Announcement (TA) feature lets you receive traffic announcements automatically, no matter what source you are listening to.
For example, if you are listening to an mp3, and a live traffic announcement is being broadcast on a particular radio station, TA will automatically detect the announcement, mute your mp3 and broadcast the announcement as it is being made.
Best Stations Memory scans and memorises the six strongest, clearest stations available on each band.
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 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.
PTY Search YesA PTY search is performed by program type as indicated in the PTY list (the program types are: News&Inf, Popular, Classics, Others). PTY also provides automatic tuning to emergency broadcasts (PTY alarm).
CD Player Features
CD Text YesUse the CD Text feature to view text information from a music CD.
By pushing the display key, you can scroll between disc titles, track titles and artist name.
Disc Title Memory enables you to programme a 10-digit descriptive title to be displayed when a particular CD is selected.
Last Position Memory automatically resumes CD play from the last point if there is interruption to CD play.
Random Play Yes
Audio Components • 70µm thin copper film subtrate for low impedance and large current capacity
• Custom condenser
• High-purity OFC power cable
• Temperature-stable amorphous chocking coil
Only the highest quality components have been selected for this system, specially selected through listening trials.
A 70µm thin copper film substrate – twice as thick as the conventional one – results in lower impedance and larger current capacity for all circuit blocks and the CD mechanism.
The custom condenser also ensures larger capacity, as well as a higher sound quality.
A high-purity Oxygen-Free Copper power cable and a highly efficient and temperature-stable amorphous chocking coil accomplish a full sound quality.
Attenuator YesWhen 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.
Display Off Mode YesFor 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.
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.
These ultra-precise sound master clock circuits thoroughly eliminate jitter.
One clock circuit is dedicated to the Sampling Rate Converter, Digital Interface Transmitter and other digital processing circuits. The second is designated for the CD mechanism.
Together, the clock circuits ensure maximum accuracy of the master clock, not only for digital signal reading, by also for transmission.
CD Mechanism • Highly stable to ensure noise and vibration-free signal processing
• Stable hologram technique and laser diode enables the reading of the most subtle music signals; even after continous reproduction and high heat
• Copper-plated chassis which avoids magnetic-induction noise
• M2052 damping alloy clamper prevents degradation of digital signal by minimising the pick-up control current caused by disc vibration
• High torgue spindle motor stables sound quality
• Hi-bit conversion
Every detail in this CD mechanism ensures that the music signal is read from the CD with complete accuracy, with virtually no vibration or noise to affect the signal.
The high-precision data pick-up has the capability to read the subtlest of music signals; even after hours of continuous reproduction and high heat.
Reliability is maintained thanks to a stable hologram technique and laser diode.
The chassis is copper-plated to avoid magnetic induction noise. The clamper is made of high-performance damping material (M2052 damping alloy), which prevents degradation of the digital signal by minimising the pick-up control current caused by disc vibration.
An enhanced high torque spindle motor stabilises the sound quality more quickly, if revolution changes during start-up or external influences prevent playback.
All these components contribute to a highly stable and pure digital audio signal with reproduction of all the fine details.
Hi-bit conversion re-quantises the 16-bit digital data from a CD into 24-bits; consequently, the resolution is enhanced, offering and impressive S/N ratio and a wider dynamic range.
This technology restores the lost elements and reproduces a more nuanced, natural sound closer to the original performance.
Power Supply Systems • 3 for the CD mechanism
• 4 for the control/display/tuner
There are 7 power supply systems: 3 for the CD mechanism / digital audio section and 4 for the control / display / tuner mechanisms.
The 2 system groups are separated to eliminate signal interference. As a result, the purity of the digital signal is preserved.
The influence of power fluctuation is minimised, as the power systems drive with extreme stability. A large capacity power supply condenser is equipped with a specially chosen back-up power line, which further ensures high sound quality.
