If you're an iPod® or iPhone® user, Dual's been thinking of you. Not only does their XDMA6510 CD receiver offer built-in controls for your player, but they've included a mount for it too. So, now you can keep your player right where you'd like it while you drive.

XDMA6510 with included mount

Dual also equips the XDMA6510 to handle all your mobile music needs. You can plug any other USB device into the handy front-panel input, or jack in a couple of audio players to the front and rear auxiliary inputs. Discs are covered too — you can play discs loaded with MP3 and WMA files, as well as your store-bought CDs.

Sound shaping is handled competently by bass and treble controls, along with seven preset EQ settings. And if you need more power, you can hook up external amps or a powered sub to the two pairs of preamp outputs. The receiver's sub level control lets you go to town when you want to crank the bass.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?
In most vehicles, you can an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Dual stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the Dual, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls.

Note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver.

    Why replace your factory radio?

    Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.

    Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the head unit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to wait until a newer software update is available.

    iPod/iPhone Cradle: The Dual XDMA6510 includes an iPod/iPhone cradle which provides a place to secure your iPod or iPhone next to the Dual head unit. The cradle will attach to the XDMA6510 when ISO-mounting or DIN-mounting the head unit in your dash.

    Dual Auxiliary Inputs: The Dual XDMA6510 is equipped with a front-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input & a rear-panel stereo RCA auxiliary input.

    • Stereo Minijack (3.5mm) Input: The XDMA6510 features a front-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input for temporary connecting an external portable audio device, such as a portable MP3 player.
    • Stereo RCA Input: The XDMA6510 is fitted with a rear-panel stereo RCA auxiliary input for permanent connection of an external audio source.

    Audio Section

    MOSFET Amplifier: The Dual XDMA6510 is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit.

    CEA2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the XDMA6510 are compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers. The power output specs for the XDMA6510 are as follows:

    • CEA2006 Specs: 18 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • Maximum Power Output: 60 watts x 4 channels (240 watts total)

    Preset EQ Curves: The Dual CD Receiver features the following preset EQ curves (Flat, Pop, Jazz, Classic, Beat, Rock, & User) to customize your music listening.

    Bass &Treble: The Bass & Treble can be independently adjusted from -6 to +6. Bass & Treble settings are retained for each mode individually. Any adjustments to the Bass or Treble settings automatically cancel the current EQ curve.

    2V/4Ch Preamp Outputs: The XDMA6510 is equipped with two sets of preamp outputs (Front, Rear/Sub). The unit's rear-channel can be used as a full-range preamp output with fade control, or as a non-fading subwoofer preamp output. When used as a subwoofer preamp output the level can be adjusted independently from 0-12. Adjusting the subwoofer level to 0 turns the subwoofer output off.

    Programmable Turn-On Volume: You can program the unit to turn on at a specific volume (1-46).

    Source Volume Level: The Source Volume Level control allows a gain adjustment for each audio source (AM, FM, CD, Aux & USB). You can set the source volume level for each mode, depending on the relative volume of each audio source.

    Key Beep: When this function is enabled, every button press will output a beep tone.

    Radio Functions

    AM/FM Tuner: The Dual 6510 features a built-in AM/FM tuner with manual, seek, & preset tuning.

    Preset Tuning: The built-in AM/FM tuner allows you to store up to 18 FM station presets and 12 AM station presets. You can tune your presets manually or have the head unit do it automatically.

    Local: The Local function allows only strong radio stations to be received, blocking stations with weaker signals.

    European Tuning: You can switch the tuner between USA or European tuning.

    Display Features

    Detachable Face: The Dual CD Receiver features a detachable faceplate and comes supplied with a hard-plastic carrying case to store the receiver's face when detached. The head unit includes two face-fixing screws for use if you prefer that the unit's faceplate always stays attached.

    Note: An optional soft face case (142DFC1X, sold separately) can also be purchased for this unit.

    10-Character LCD: The XDMA6510 features a 10 character LCD with white text & black background for easy viewing during the day or nighttime.

    Display Settings: The head unit offers the following display settings.

    • Scrolling: You can change the scrolling style used for displayed information on the LCD screen. Choose from Off (no scrolling), Once (scrolls once), 15 Secs (scrolls once per 15 seconds), and On (constantly scrolls).
    • Display Dimmer: The head unit's display features three illumination dimmer settings (High/Medium/Low).

    12/24 Hour Clock: The unit's built-in clock will display 12-hour AM/PM time in USA frequency spacing mode. In European frequency spacing mode, the clock will display 24-hour time.

    Note: The clock can be set to stay on even when the head unit is turned off.

    Power-On Message: This feature allows a "Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening" text message to be shown on the unit's LCD screen when it is powered on.

    Demo Mode: You can enable or disable the unit's demonstration mode.

    Remote Control

    Wireless Remote Control: The XDMA6510 comes supplied with an 18-button IR wireless remote control which provides complete control of the Dual CD Receiver.

    Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The head unit features an OEM steering wheel remote control input on the rear of the unit to allow you to keep your vehicle's radio steering wheel remote controls when used with the optional PAC SWI-RC Steering Wheel Control Interface Adapter (541SWIRC, sold separately); or the optional Metra ASWC Steering Wheel Control Interface Adapter (120ASWC, sold separately).

    Good Basic CD/Stereo

    For basic stuff, this is a pretty good stereo. It was inexpensive, has a detachable face, aux input, usb input, and the ability to send sound to a preamp via rca (I chose not to do this). I would buy it again if I needed another one. Tech help from Crutchfield was great. I'm a little colorblind (just a little) so the wiring diagram which listed the matching wires was almost useless to me. The good folks on the tech line sent me a diagram that showed colors and positions on the actual harness. AFter that, just a little splicing and crimping and I was done.!

    Pros: Great sound, simple design, detachable face, all of the necessary inputs. Cool blue light display.

    Cons: Because there are so many functions, and buttons for those functions (ex. band, tuning, input, etc), sometimes accurately punching the little buttons while driving can be a little difficult. On the other hand, it has so much potential! I'm happy with my purchase.

    I wanted to replace the Factory head unit in a newly acquired Wrangler. Knowing that the doors and top would rarely be on the vehicle, I was leery of putting an expensive head unit in for fear of weather and/or theft. Although I was not familiar with Dual as a name brand, I relied on reviews like this to make my decision. Pound for pound and dollar for dollar this head unit cannot be beat. Powerful with good sound quality at a more than fair price. In fact, I was impressed enough that I ordered the same unit as a replacement for the aged Alpine in my boat! With the installation kit and instructions that Crutchfield sends alog with the purchase, the install could not have gone smoother. Thanks.

    Pros: powerful, many options and affordable

    Cons: non yet

    Excellent replacement for the stock stereo in my 1996 Dodge Ram. It sounds very good and has a lot of nice features. For the price you can't beat it.

    Pros: Sounds good and looks good for a great price.

    I bought this radio so I can use my iPod and iPhone in my 2004 Chevy 2500HD Truck that didn't have a USB or auxiliary port. Crutchfield told me that this wAs a fix for my truck and they were right. The sound quality is excellent and the radio is easy to use. I do recommend that you buy for the extra mounting face plate for the radio install .

    Ordered this stereo to replace the factory GM stereo. My order was shipped quickly and everything I needed was there. Super east to install with all of the guides and information as well as other component parts. Would be a good stereo for any replacement. The iPhone or iPod dock is great to have, I can keep it close by now and it's easy to see while driving when needed.

    Pros: Easy to install. Sound is good. Lots of good options on the stereo.

    Crutchfield makes it flawless to install a quality product at a quality price.

    Pros: The installation with the exact harness required was so easy. Simply color for color wiring took me perhaps an hour from box to using the product. A box of color crayons could not be easier. This is the second of these units I have installed now I have them in both of my cars.

    Cons: absolutely none.

    I've installed for years and this install was the quickest and easiest. With all accessories provided by crutchfield I installed this stereo in 23 minutes. Sound quality was 100 percent better than stock and the accessories offered allowed me to use my iPod, and input my smartphone via aux input. This allows me to play all my stored music on iTunes and even stream pandora through my smartphone. The 60 watts by 4 channels is one of the heist on the market for head units and immediately made a difference in my ride. This unit pushes my 6x9 Rockford fosgates and my 6.5 Polk audio speakers to the brink of clipping out. P

    Pros: Value for price, aux capability, this unit has everything higher priced units have, but it's MOSFET 60x4 amp is the highest on the market especially for the price of 72.99$

    Cons: Has everything but blue tooth and a built in media program such as pandora, of note these items can be accessed and provided via aux connection from a smartphone.

    The installation kit and radio unit were a snap to install. The set up works very well and looks cool in my old Subaru. It gives the car a new and fresh upgrade. I would recommend this system to anyone that wants a relatively inexpensive but yet very good sounding audio system.

    Pros: The system looks and sounds great for the money. It is a relatively inexpensive upgrade to an old car. I wish that I had done it a few years ago. The installation kit was very easy to install.

    Cons: The wiring harness took a little bit of time to set up correctly. That could be because of the small print on the wires.

    I have not bought a new car stereo in years; and this Dual car stereo with IPhone USB cable plug in is a great option. Not only can you play your own music from your Iphone; but it also charges your Iphone at the same time. It's controls are easy to figure out unlike your smartphone that took awhile to figure out when new.

    Pros: iPhone plug in. Ease of controls

    Cons: None that I have found

    The radio works great, so easy to install with the kit and instructions. Unfortunately for me, but fortunately for Crutchfield I order speakers a couple of days later as the originals were incapable to take advantage of the radios output!

    I bought one, liked it so much, I purchased another. Sound and quality is really good for the price. Easy to install. The ipod holder is really convenient and the front accessory ports are great. Nice illumination and easy to use the buttons. I would recommend this unit.

    Pros: Easy to install especially with accessory kit. The trim kit for specifically for your vehicle is excellent.

    Cons: I installed this unit in a 1995 saturn. When the volume was turned way up the unit lost all power. The radio fuse was fine. After researching I learned that some aftermarket units additionally rely on the fuse for the chime which has a 5 amp fuse. I replaced it with a 7.5 amp and it seem to be working fine.

    Definately a winner. Great features for the price and , so far, outstanding operation!

    Pros: Ease of use and selectable feature options. The remote is a plus (don't use it while driving unless you have it memorized!)

    Cons: None so far.

    Easy to install after an easy removal of the factory radio. Great look and has all the features we wanted.

    Pros: Ease of use, remote, removable faceplate. Looks great where the other radio was.

    Cons: Faceplate framework couldn't be used on our install. Didn't see where the instructions said which mounting screws went where, but we figured it out.

    Great for the price

    While this unit is easy to operate, plays CDs, drives the operation of your iPod, and can play music from a thumb drive, the coolest feature was the holder for your iPod/MP3 player. I expected some cheap plastic thing that glued onto my dash, or attached to a air vent. Instead the holder is an integral part of the unit. It's functional and looks great. This unit also made my stock speakers come to life. The sounds quality is exceptional. Thinking of getting this unit for my RV, as the include remote control for this unit would be quite useful in an RV to drive your music from the RV's kitchen table.

    Pros: Easy to use interface - did not need to read the manual! Sound quality exceeded my expectations.

    Cons: none - zero - nada

    Exceeded my expectations

    This cd player works better than I expected. Given the price of the unit I would have expected a lower build quality, less sound output and clarity, and an overall lack of design. However, I am glad to write that this is not the case. This thing feels as sturdy as many of the higher priced units I have purchased in the past and it certainly puts out a lot of clear sound. Matched up with the appropriate speakers and you can have some cranking music. Yes, it is lacking in a lot of the fancy stuff higher priced units have (blue tooth, XM radio, etc.) but what it does have it does well. I also liked how it comes packaged with a phone mount - something I would have never thought to use if it were not included. Super easy install and super sleek look once finished. Really have nothing to complain about.

    Pros: Fast install, super sleek face plate, easy controls, inclusion of a phone mount, easy sound shaping, usb port, and sturdiness.

    Cons: Nothing really - I got more than I was expecting. Is it a $400 unit? No, it is exactly what it claims to be.

    Love it! Easy to install. Great value. Was looking for an inexpensive unit to put in my old car & this is it. Haven't used the CD player yet but the USB & front aux. ports work great. Didn't realize that the IPod mount needed to be attached to the unit BEFORE putting the player in to the car. Not worth pulling it out to redo it.

    Pros: everything

    Even at the lowest dim setting this radio is BRIGHT!.. I used permanent black marker on it just to limit some of the glare.

    Pros: Sounds decent enough.

    Cons: Its cuts out about 3-4 times per week. Ive check the ground wires. They are all good. Way too bright! Even on the lowest brightness setting its bright..

    This receiver would be a great value if not for the poor FM reception. I thought the poor reception was due to the antenna in my car is embedded in the windshield. Well, it was months before I decided to install a fender mount antenna. I discovered the fault was with the receiver. Antenna booster did not help either. If I had discovered this sooner, it would be going back to Crutchfield.

    Cons: very poor FM reception

    If your looking for a great radio that's cheap this is it. Sounds great, especially if you buy the rockford fosgate replacement speakers. I have 2 of these radios in work trucks with no issues so far.

    Pros: Price, sound, and easy to use.

    Cons: If you have to think about it to come up with a con then there isn't a con.

    great radio for the price. Fits in my 75 Nova even though Crutchfield said it wouldn't. It was easy to install. I like the AUX jack in the front. I can plug my Zune into it and play all the music I enjoy. The Ipod holder works with the Zune also. I would definitely buy a second one if the need arose.

    Cons: did not find anything pertaining to install of Ipod holder mount. Put the mount on the radio and stumbled onto what it was for while browsing Crutchfield web site.

    Nice Stereo, I miss having a seek button even though you can hold the tune button for a second and have it seek. If you hold it for 2 sec it doesn't seek.

    Pros: Good Sound, Good tuner, Low static, USB and mp3 play are excellent additions

    Cons: Seek button takes some practice to use correctly, controls are hard to read
