Our take on the Axxera XDMA7100

by Ken Nail
Axxera

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.

Sure, you might pull out a CD every once in a while, but it's nice to have choices if you usually listen to music on an iPod® or memory device. That's why the Axxera XDMA7100 gives you plenty of ways to enjoy your music when you're on the road.

Ready for anything
Once you connect your iPod to the front-panel USB slot, you'll enjoy the ease of browsing through the tunes in your music library with the '7100's control knob, so you can place your iPod out of the way in the console.

If you don't use an iPod you're still covered — you can plug a thumb drive loaded with MP3 or WMA files into the USB slot. Need more options? The SD card slot behind the fold-down face will handle cards with up to 16GB of music. You'll find a minijack input on the front panel, along with RCA inputs on the back of the receiver, giving you the ability to add just about any audio source.

And CDs haven't been forgotten — slide in all your store-bought discs or home-brewed mixes, including MP3 and WMA discs.

More features
Axxera gives you some nice tools for sound, with a 3-band EQ for fine adjustments and seven handy EQ presets for quick changes to the overall sound. You'll also appreciate the remote control for easy control on-the-fly, especially if you have demanding passengers. Two pairs of preamp outputs let you add amps and subs for a high-powered system.

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

    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.

    Optional iPod/iPhone Cradle: The optional Axxera iPod/iPhone cradle (070SAM7100, sold separately) provides a place to secure your iPod or iPhone next to the Dual Axxera head unit. The cradle will attach to the XDMA7100 when ISO-mounting or DIN-mounting the head unit in your dash.

    Dual Auxiliary Inputs: The XDMA7100 features dual auxiliary inputs. There is a front-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input for connecting an external portable audio device such as a portable MP3 player. There is also a rear-panel stereo RCA auxiliary input for connecting a permanent external audio device.

    Audio Section

    MOSFET Amplifier: The Dual Axxera XDMA7100 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 XDMA7100 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 XDMA7100 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 Axxera CD Receiver features the following preset EQ curves to customize your music listening - Flat, Pop, Jazz, Classic, Beat, Rock, or User.

    Bass & Treble: The User Mode lets you independently adjust bass & treble (+/-6dB).

    Loudness: The Loudness function enhances the bass & treble frequencies at low volumes.

    2V/4Ch Preamp Outputs: The Dual Axxera XDMA7100 is equipped with two pair of 2-Volt preamp outputs (Front, R/Sub). The R/Sub preamp output can be switched between a rear-channel full-range output or a non-fading subwoofer preamp output.

    Note: The unit does not feature a built-in low-pass crossover for the subwoofer preamp output (when activated). You will need an external amp with a built-in low-pass crossover.

    Subwoofer Level: When the subwoofer preamp output is activated, you can adjust the output level (0-12) of the sub preamp output.

    Source Volume Level: The Source Volume Level control allows a gain adjustment for each audio source (Tuner, CD, Aux and USB). You can set the source volume level (+/-6dB) for each mode, depending on the relative volume of each audio source.

    Program Volume: You can se the XDMA7100 to power-on to the same volume level (1-46) every time.

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

    Radio Functions

    AM/FM Tuner: The Dual XDMA7100 features a built-in AM/FM tuner with manual, seek, scan, and 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 headunit 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 face-plate is detachable to deter theft and comes supplied with a hard-plastic carrying case to store the receiver's face when detached.

    Note: The headunit includes two face-fixing screws for use if you prefer that the unit's face-plate always stays attached.

    Display Settings: The headunit 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 headunit'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 headunit 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  units demonstration mode.

    Remote Control

    Wireless Remote Control: The XDMA7100 comes supplied with a 21-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).

    Note: Please consult the Crutchfield Car Selector to see if your vehicle is compatible.

    Great receiver. This is a well built, great sounding, easy to use receiver. I bought it for my 2003 F-150 SuperCrew as I just wanted to listen to my Iphone through the radio. I'm now listening to some radio stations again! I love Bluegrass and the radio sounds great through my factory stereo. The bass is clear and the treble is still high lonesome!!
    Pros:
    Nice display. Easy to use with Iphone.

    Does Not Fit!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I just received my XDMA7100 tonight. I purchased it with a Double Din faceplate so that I could stack it with my scanner and run the scanner through the rear input.

    After wiring the harness and taking apart my dashboard (2008 Hyundai Sonata), I went to put the units into the double din faceplate and to my great dismay I found that the XDMA was too wide! I didn't actually measure it, but I'd estimate it was about an 1/8 of an inch too wide for a standard DIN slot! I checked my scanner, which is DIN compliant and it fit fine (albeit tightly)... sure enough when I compare the XDMA and my scanner, the XDMA is wider.

    I immediately called tech support to see if there was something wrong with my faceplate (unlikely) or my radio (hopefully not!). After doing some looking, the operator did in fact tell me that the radio was too big for a DIN slot. Maybe my Hyundai just has a very small space for radios, but I think this is a serious oversight on the part of Axxera.

    I still rated this with 3 stars because after a long time in my workshop manipulating the faceplate with my dremel, I was able to get the radio and my scanner mounted in their slots and installed in my car.

    Feature wise the radio is great, although I wish I would have sprung for the 7200 with the Bluetooth, didn't see that till now! However, I only recommend buying this to those who are willing to be creative during their install, not for those that were hoping to just slide it in.
