Super-Silent Mechanism and Disc
Stabilizer: This design uses a belt and gear drive to ensure smooth disc
rotation and plastic rollers under the tray to allow it move more smoothly. The
disc being played is isolated from vibration on a separate tray and held in
place by a disc stabilizer. The quieter and smoother disc changing system helps
maximize the units sound quality.
Laser Pickup Floating Mechanism:
The laser pickup is isolated on a floating mechanism so its delicate operation
cannot be affected by vibration.
Intelligent Digital Servo System:
This type of system uses a microcomputer to monitor the signal, adjusting
pickup tracking and focus, as well as spindle motor speed, to compensate for any
Power Supply: The special
low-impedance power supply uses extra thick wires to ensure that power is
absolutely stable even under low-impedance conditions.
PlayXchange allows you to change up to 4 discs without interrupting playback.
Most of the tray extends from the unit when opened, which allows you to insert
all four CDs without rotating the tray.
CD Text: When a CD Text
encoded CD is played, this unit will display the CD Text information.

feature plays 8 seconds of each disc in the changer.
Up to 40 tracks from any combination of the 5 discs can be programmed and played in any order.
Random Play: This
unit allows you to choose single disc random or all disc
random play. Note: Random play is only accessible with the remote control.

remote there are buttons to skip disc in either direction. Direct track
selection is available on the remote.
Dimmer: Using the remote
control, the display brightness can be set to one of three levels.
Automatic Peak Level Search: This feature

recording automatically when the CD starts playing.
Automatic Tape Programming: By memorizing

choose from Off, 46, 54, 60, or 90. You can also choose to manual enter in the
