Want style and substance in your mobile sound system? Take a good hard look at Dual's XDMR7710 CD player, a hip-looking stereo that offers loads of entertainment options. The faceplate slides down at the touch of a button to reveal the display screen and CD slot, leaving the oversized encoder knob and other controls within easy reach.

You can play MP3/WMA discs, each packed with up to 10 hours of your favorite tunes. You can easily read system information, including songs titles and track information for your MP3/WMA files, on the high-contrast display — even in bright sunlight.

The XDMR7710 can also be connected to Dual's optional PlaysForSure adapter, which lets you plug in, control, and charge many thumb drives or portable MP3 players (sorry, no iPods). With this adapter, you can even record directly to USB thumb drives from the tuner, CD, or auxiliary input.

Dual includes the unique iplug with the XDMR7710. Just mount the iplug wherever you like — under the dash, in the glove compartment, or in the center console — plug the 39" cable into the player, and you've got a handy input connection right where you need it. No more dangling wires to get in the way of your clean installation. You can also add an optional XM satellite radio (subscription required, see "Accessories") for under $50.

The XDMR7710's strong, built-in amplifier will make whatever you're listening to sound great. You can personalize the sound with the five tone presets — "Pop," "Jazz," "Classic," "Beat," and "Rock." Use the set of preamp outputs to connect an external amp or powered sub.

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.

Features

Two-step, Motorized Display: The rotary knob, preset buttons and other control buttons reside on the outer face plate. This unit has a 3-13/16" x 5/8" display behind the face plate. When the open button is pressed, the motorized face plate slides down to reveal the display. Note: The face plate is detachable, however, it first requires removing two screws from the bottom of the face beneath the trim ring.

Auxiliary Input: The Dual XDMR7710 is equipped with rear-mounted, stereo RCA auxiliary input jacks on a 5" pigtail.

iplug: This unit features the iplug, a 39" interface cable that connects a portable MP3 player (such as an iPod), or other portable audio source unit, to the receiver's auxiliary input. The iplug has a dash-mountable 3.5mm female minijack that can be attached using the supplied adhesive or self-tapping screws.

Media Player Link Ready: With the optional EAUSB20 Media Player Link (item # 070EAUSB20), the XDMR7710 lets you command and control a number of leading portable MP3 players, and play or record music directly to or from USB mass storage devices, including most standard thumb drives. This unit supports WMA files, including music purchased from PlaysForSure online stores from select portable audio players.

XM Satellite Radio Controls: This unit can control an optional XMD1000 XM Satellite Radio tuner (item 209XMD1000)), without any additional adapters. In addition to the 209XMD1000, which includes an antenna, you'll need an XM Satellite Radio subscription to receive the service. XM Satellite Radio programming features over 150 channels of programming beamed coast-to-coast. During XM Satellite Radio play, you can store up to 20 XM stations in memory presets.

MP3/WMA Playback: This unit can play MP3 and WMA files that have been recorded with constant bit rate (MP3: 8 to 320 kbps/WMA: 32-192 kbps) or variable bit rate compression on CD-R and CD-RW discs. The disc must be in one of the following formats: ISO 9660 level 1 or level 2, or Yellow Book MODE 1 or MODE 2 FORM 1. In addition, this unit is compatible with ID3 Tag version 1.0. Discs should be recorded with a maximum of 256 folders and files and 8 folder levels.

Skip Protection: An internal SRAM buffer provides ESP (electronic skip protection) to virtually eliminate skipping. The ESP is for MP3/WMA files only.

MP3/WMA Search Modes: The preset buttons and other buttons on the front panel can be used for entering letters or numbers to assist you in locating specific MP3 or WMA files and folders. The following search functions can be performed by this unit:

  • Direct File Select: search for specific file number
  • Alphanumeric File/Folder Search: search for file or folder names by entering alphanumeric characters
  • File/Folder Navigate: search the current folder for all available files

Preset EQ Curves: You can choose from five preset curves: Pop, Jazz, Classic, Beat and Rock. Any adjustment to the bass or treble settings automatically cancels the current EQ curve.

Source Audio Memory: Individual bass and treble settings are retained in memory for AM, FM, XM, CD, and AUX modes.

Turn-on Volume: You can preset the unit's volume when it is powered on. Each time the unit is turned on, the volume is reset to the preset level regardless of the volume level when the unit was last turned off.

Display Priority: You can set the unit to a source display or time display priority. When set to source display priority, the radio tuner frequency, CD track/elapsed time, selected MP3/WMA information, or Aux display will be displayed by default. The clock can be accessed temporarily when the Display button is pressed. When the time display priority, the clock is displayed by default, while the source information can be accessed temporarily with the Display button.

12/24 Hour Clock: When the unit's radio tuning interval is set to USA spacing, the clock is displayed in a 12-hour format. If the unit is switched to European frequency spacing, the clock switches to a 24-hour format.

Clock Display Note: Normally, the display illuminates only when the unit is on. You can program it so the clock is displayed when the unit is off. In this case, the clock display is "keyed", and will turn on and off as the ignition key is turned on and off.

Dual XDMR7710 CD player

I installed this CD player into my Chevy Crew Cab and I'm very impress with its performance. One of the best Player I have ever own. It also looks good with the black and grey interior.

Execellent CD Player

Written By Matt, Gary, IN on Thursday, August 17, 2006

This CD Player is an execellent player. From the press stuff that I read it is basically ONE of the first recievers to work with play for sure technology. On the back of the radio there is basically three extra connections aside from what you would get with a normal stereo. 2 are for the XM radio. One is for the I plug and the last is for the usb connector. Installation on the reciever was a snap. This was the first time I actually installed a reciever by myself without assistance, and it was relativily easy. Every color matched up exactly. Only thing I forgot about was to take the two screws that hold the face plate in place out. They tell you to do this before full installation. Also you need to be aware that the face plate removal is optional, you don't have to have it removable. Although EXTREMELY recomened since the face plate sticks out like a sore tumb waiting for someone to rip it off. However removing and re-attaching the face plate is a pain, you really have to get used to it. Sound quality is awesome, however I don't think that there is a way to have an adjustable EQ curve built within the unit, I think there is only the five presets they give you, and trebble and bass setting, but nothing that is individualized. Which I am not used to because with my old pioneer I was able to fine tune the eq which was awesome. In terms of features I think that this is probably this best you can buy in its range. I mean unless you are planning on spending over 300.00 or more. However I don't have that kind of money to just blow on a reciever. All in all it is definatly worth the investment, and if your like me you will definatly be happy with it.
