CMD4A Marine CD receiver has been treated for use in the harsh marine
environment. The receiver meets or exceeds ASTM B117 Salt/Fog Exposure and ASTM
D4329 UV Exposure standards. The faceplate features a unique rubber gasket and
door assembly offering the internal components complete water protection. The top of the chassis is covered with an
integrated drip shield and mounting gasket to seal the bulkhead, and to further
augment the water-resistant faceplate. The
microprocessor and circuit board are sealed with a Pelgan Z conformal
clear coating to protect them from corrosion.

the auxiliary source to the other sources.
Non-fading Output: In addition
to the front and rear preamp outputs, the CMD4A is equipped with a
non-fading preamp output with an adjustable volume from -6 to +6. There is no
low-pass filter on the non-fading output.
Reload: When a 12cm CD is ejected and left
sticking out of the CD slot for 15 seconds, the unit automatically reloads the
CD to protect if from damage. (8cm/3-1/2" CDs are not reloaded automatically)
