Our take on the Dual XDVD3201

by Zak Billmeier
Dual

DVD receivers: They're not just for movies

DVD receivers add a new level of entertainment to your vehicle. You can watch a movie on the screen when you're parked on a Saturday night, or play a DVD through your rear seat video setup on the road. Touchscreen receivers allow you to breeze through menus with the tip of your finger. Most DVD receivers feature a USB input for audio from your iPod, and the ability to add an adapter that allows video to display on the screen. Some receivers even offer connections for a center speaker and a subwoofer, so you can build a full-fledged theater in your car, just like at home.

A touchscreen that won't break the bank
If you've got the space in your dash, why not fill it with a big screen? Dual's XDVD3201 DVD receiver plays DVDs while you're parked, then becomes your touchscreen commander when you're on the road.

Tap your way through all your tunes
iPod® and iPhone® lovers, all you have to do is plug in your player to the XDVD3201's rear USB input, and you can tap your way through your music library as you see plenty of song info on the 6.2" screen. And if you don't have an iPod, no big deal — you can load up an SD™ card or a USB thumb drive with tunes, too.

Ready to grow with you
Are you planning a system? Dual gives you three sets of preamp outputs that'll make it easier to add amps and subs. You'll also find video outputs so you can hook up video screens in the back seat for your passengers to enjoy. A handy rear-camera input lets you connect a backup camera so you can park in tight spaces with confidence. And a handy front-panel audio/video input handles just about any other source that might come down the pike.

Want to keep your steering wheel controls?
In most vehicles, you can use 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 XDVD3201, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.

    Touchscreen Display

    6.2" Touchscreen Display: The Dual XDVD3201 features a fixed 6.2" wide, 16:9 touchscreen display. The screen has a resolution of 800 (H) x 480 (V) x RGB with 1,152,000 total pixels. This unit has touchscreen controls with interactive video graphics, making menu navigation easy.

    Note: The unit's touchscreen display is not detachable.

    Picture Adjustment: You can adjust the touchscreen display's brightness, contrast, and color.

    Video Lockout: For safety reasons, you cannot view a video source on the built-in monitor as long as the vehicle is in motion. In order to display video, the included yellow/blue wire must be hardwired into the vehicle's parking brake light circuit, and the vehicle's parking brake must be engaged and disengaged in a preset sequence.

    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. The head unit also display day, month, and year

    Hard-Key Controls: In addition to the touchscreen controls, the unit includes frequently used buttons and a rotary dial along the left edge of the screen.

    Anti-Theft Code: You may program the unit with a 4 digit security code. Once the unit has been programmed with a security code, the code must be entered to use the unit after it has been disconnected from power for more than 40 seconds.

    2-DIN Chassis: The XDVD3201 has a 2-DIN chassis, and will fit in many vehicles with a large dash opening. The unit can be ISO-mounted using factory brackets, or Euro-mounted using the supplied mounting sleeve.

    Note: As always, please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to verify fit with your vehicle.

    Audio Section

    24 Bit D/A Converter: The Dual XDVD3201 utilizes a 24-bit digital to analog converter for superior sound quality.

    MOSFET Amplifier: The Dual XDVD3201 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 XDVD3201 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 XDVD3201 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)

    5ch/2V Preamp Outputs: The XDVD3201 features front, rear, and subwoofer 2.0-volt preamp outputs. The front & rear speaker preamp outputs are balance/fade adjustable. The subwoofer preamp output is non-fading.

    Subwoofer Controls: The unit's subwoofer output has a dedicated low-pass filter (80/120/160Hz) and output level adjustment.

    Preset EQ Curves: The Dual DVD Receiver features the following preset EQ curves to customize your music listening. You can choose from User, Flat, Jazz, Pop, Rock, Soft, Vocal, Classic, Dance, Movie, and Hip-Hop.

    3-Band EQ: The User Preset EQ setting allows you to adjust the unit's 3-Band EQ.

    • Bass: select from 60Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, or 200Hz
    • Midrange: select from 500Hz, 1kHz, 1.5kHz, or 2.5kHz
    • Treble: select from 10khz, 12.5kHz, 15kHz, or 17.5kHz

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

    Source Volume Level: The Source Volume Level control allows a gain adjustment for each audio source (Disc, SD, USB, iPod, Tuner, AV1, and AV2). You can set the source volume level for each mode, depending on the relative volume of each audio source.

    Radio Functions

    AM/FM Tuner: The Dual XDVD3201 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 18 AM station presets. You can tune your presets manually or have the head unit do it automatically.

    Preset Scan: You can scan all your stored preset stations and listen to the first 10 seconds of each.

    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.

    Disc/SD-Card Playback

    Disc Compatibility: The unit has a front-loading disc-slot to make loading your disc easier because there is no panel to slide or fold-down. The Dual XDVD3201 supports playback of DVD-Video, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, and CD-R/RW discs.

    Front-Panel SD-card Slot: The Dual XDVD3201 is equipped with front-panel SD-card slot for playback of MP3/WMA music files stored on a SD/SDHC memory card (up to 16GB).

    MP3/WMA Playback: The XDVD3201 can play MP3/WMA audio files that have been recorded on CD-R/CD-RW, DVD-R/RW, or DVD+R/RW discs, as well as SD/SDHC memory cards. The files must be recorded in ISO 9660 Level 1 or 2, or Joliet file format. Compatible bit rates are 8-320 kbps for MP3, and 32-192 kbps for WMA. Recorded discs and SD-cards can have up to 2,000 files and 200 folders. The head unit will display MP3 ID3 Tag and WMA Tag information.

    Internal Buffer: An internal buffer provides ESP (Electronic Skip Protection) for MP3/WMA discs to virtually eliminate skipping.

    JPEG Playback: The XDVD3201 also supports playback JPEG still images recorded onto a CD-R/CD-RW, DVD-R/RW,, or DVD+R/RW discs. JPEG photos can be viewed as thumbnails as well as rotated clockwise/counterclockwise. It is not possible to view JPEG still images while the vehicle is in motion; the vehicle must be in park with the parking brake engaged.

    Touchscreen Controls: During DVD playback, you can control certain operations simply by touching an area of the screen. You can touch the bottom left two-thirds of the screen to start the current chapter over, or the bottom right two-thirds of the screen to skip to the next chapter. Touching the top left one-third of the screen allows to display the Main menu; while touching the top center of the screen displays DVD disc information. Pressing the middle of the screen activates the DVD playback control functions.

    Play List: The XDVD3201's touchscreen monitor will display five folders, tracks, or image files on a disc or SD-card for easier access to your media files.

    Playback & Search Functions: The XDVD3201 provides various playback & search functions.

    • Playback: Normal, Random (all/folder), Repeat (track/all/folder)
    • Search: Fast Forward/Reverse (2/4/8/16x), Previous/Next track

    Parental Control: Parental Control allows you to restrict DVD playback according to a predetermined level. You can select a parental control rating from 0-8, which is protected by a 4-digit password.

    Off Eject: You can eject a disc even after the head unit has been turned off.

    USB/iPod Connectivity

    USB Port: The Dual XDVD3201 features a rear-panel USB (type-A) port and includes a dash-mount iPlug adapter for playback of MP3, WMA, and JPEG files stored on a USB mass storage class device. The files must be recorded in FAT16 or FAT32 file format. Compatible bit rates are 8-320 kbps for MP3, and 32-192 kbps for WMA. Recorded discs can have up to 2,000 files and 200 folders. The head unit will display MP3 ID3 Tag and WMA Tag information. Playback functions include Play List, Play/Pause, Fast Forward/Reverse, Previous/Next Track, and Repeat/Random. Your USB device's rechargeable battery will be recharged while it is connected to the USB port (max. 500mA) of the XDVD3201 and the unit is turned on.

    iPod/iPhone Connectivity: The Dual XDVD3201 supports audio/video playback from select Apple iPods and iPhones. The Dual XDVD3201's rear-panel USB (type-A) port and rear-panel composite video input allow you to connect your Apple iPod/iPhone using the Dual's IPV40 iPod cable (070IPV40, sold separately). Video can only be displayed while the vehicle is in park. If you only want to playback audio from your iPod or iPhone, you can simply connect it to the XDVD3201's USB port using the included iPlug adapter and either the USB/iPod dock cable that came with your iPod/iPhone or the PIE iPod Direct Connect Cable (469USBIPH, sold separately).

    iPod/iPhone DAC Bypass: Because the Dual XDVD3201 uses its USB connection for audio & control transfer, your iPod/iPhone's stored music is loaded instantly to the head unit and sound quality is maximized through the head unit's 24-bit D/A converter, allowing for a Signal-to-Noise ratio up to 80dB.

    iPod Control: The Dual head unit allows you to navigate your iPod's music library by Playlist, Artists, Album, Song, Genre, Composer, Podcast, and Audiobook. Your iPod's video library can be searched by Video Playlist, Movie, Music Video, TV Show, Video Podcast, or Rented Movie. You can then search each of these categories using the head unit's touchscreen. The head unit also supports Repeat (track) & Random (album) playback functions of your connected iPod/iPhone.

    Note: Your iPod/iPhone's touchscreen or clickwheel will be locked during connection.

    iPod/iPhone Display: The XDVD3201 will display your iPod/iPhone's music file information of your stored music, regardless of control mode. The head unit will display Track number, Elapsed playing time, Artist name, Song title, and Album label.

    Note: Your iPod/iPhone's downloaded apps will not display on the unit's LCD monitor.

    iPod Charging: The head unit's USB connection provides 500mA of current to power and charge your connected iPod/iPhone when your vehicle's ignition switch is set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position. This unit does not charge the iPad.

    Note: If your iPod/iPhone has no initial battery charge, then the unit will not recognize it.

    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.

    AV Connections

    Dual A/V Inputs: The Dual XDVD3201 DVD receiver is fitted with two audio/video inputs. The unit features a front-panel 3.5mm audio/video input on the front panel of the head unit for connecting a temporary external A/V source, such as a game console.  The head unit also features a composite video/stereo audio RCA input on the rear panel for connecting a permanent external A/V source, such as a Blu-ray player or mobile ATSC tuner.

    Note: This rear-panel composite video input also serves as the A/V input for your USB-connected iPod (using proprietary Dual cable).

    Dual Video Outputs: The two rear-panel composite video outputs allow you to connect optional external monitors. You can watch the same audio/video source that is being played on the DVD receiver on your connected external monitors.

    Camera Input: The unit features a composite video input for connecting an optional rear view camera (sold separately). The video from this connection can be set to display when switched to this input, or display the rear view camera video automatically when the vehicle is shifted into Reverse gear. The white/brown wire (within 16-pin harness) must be connected to the vehicle's reverse lamp circuit for automatic video switching. Automatic video switching takes approximately 2.8 seconds. The camera image can be set to Normal or Mirrored.

    Note: Audio from your music source will continue playing, while the back-up camera is displayed.

    Remote Control

    Wireless Remote Control: In addition to the unit's touch-screen panel and hard-key controls, the XDVD3201 also comes supplied with a full-functioning IR wireless remote control for convenient operation.

    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.

    Updating Honda Stereo

    Written By John D, Rogers, AR on Friday, November 15, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I bought this stereo to update my 05 Honda Accord. I am very happy with the product for the amount I paid. I had a question about connecting the park brake wire the radio needs to play video, and a call to Crutchfield customer service was all it took. The CSR even emailed me a photo I needed and I had gotten the email before we were off the phone.
    Pros:
    Good Sound Easy to use
    Cons:
    Only one USB input. Does not display special characters in the file names or iPod lists. (Mötley Crüe, Beyoncé, etc)

    Dual DVD stereo reciever

    Written By Steve, Wilmington NC on Sunday, September 22, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    The unit overall is ok but if I was doing it again would ensure the outputs were more up to date, ie this unit is solely aimed at video with audio being a secondary focus.
    Pros:
    inexpensive with decent picture for the price
    Cons:
    Unit does not fit and the kit included does not help.. The directions to make it fit are bad. Because the unit is mainly video focused its outputs do not work with an audio out cable without wiggling it to make connections. If I had it to do over this would not be my choice additionally this unit was two years old and that was not evident when I ordered it, that would have impacted my choice.

    Great Value

    Written By Clayton M., Muncie, Indiana on Saturday, June 01, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    At first I was a little scheptical of the brand name, but after having great luck with a couple Dual brand amplifiers, I thougt I'd give it a try. It turns out to be a nice, feature packed unit.
    Pros:
    Easy to use controls. Several inputs and outputs. A backup camera was a snap to hook up to this unit.
    Cons:
    Can't really think of any cons right off. You get more than you pay for with this one.

    Great Unit for the Price. Has awesome connectivity and expandability. Can connect a rear view camera, ipod, usb, play dvd's, the whole 9!
    Pros:
    Easy to use, Sound quality, Picture quality, Connectivity, Expandability
    Cons:
    Screen freezes at times. Just need to turn it off and back on and it goes away. Kind of annoying when it happens, but doesn't happen all the time

    Good but flawed shuffle

    Written By Reviewer987, Wilmington, NC on Tuesday, November 20, 2012
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Good unit, sounds good, Plenty of power. Front card SD. Graphics are OK, but counter-intuitive and look "old" to modern interfaces. Biggest beef is the shuffle/randon function is not random... same songs in the same order. Can manually jump to another song way down list, and will do better, but will get stuck once back in the same general area.
    Pros:
    Good unit, sounds good, Plenty of power. Front card SD.
    Cons:
    Not Random

    Not a bad unit.

    Written By Kevin, Gray, GA on Wednesday, September 26, 2012
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I was looking for a new unit after my factory Xterra's 6 disc changer ate two of my CD's. After looking on this website for a few days I decided to get the Dual. I was blown away with the sound quality I was getting compared to the factory unit and was made by Fosgate. I also bought Kicker's to replace the stock speakers. If your looking for a budget car DVD player don't pass this one up. It works better than you might think.
    Pros:
    Price, ease of use and decent sound to factory speakers.
    Cons:
    Could use more features such as displaying album art. I that would add more coolness to the unit.

    Daul Dvd Review The Good and The Bad

    Written By Eric Y, Denver, Co on Saturday, September 08, 2012
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This is a great entry level unit that will provide you with a touch screen and the ability to play your Mp3 files. Crutchfield tech support was quite helpful in answering questions and saved me some time by making sure I hooked up my Fm antenna correctly with the adaptor for my nissian. They supplied all the necessary parts from face plate (looks almost good as stock perfect fit BTW) wiring harness and fm adaptor at no additional cost plus they even gave me printed instructions easy install thanks to all this. I would suggest skipping there wiring nuts they are just plastic retention rings with a small metal band I ended up pitching these in the trash and solder it the old fashioned way. Since I could pull the nuts off with my bare hands 99 cents gone no loss though. As for the the video lock out easy fix just think about it I am sure a Toggle switch will go off in your mind and find you the work around for that problem. I will always come here for future purchases for any car stereo stuff or maybe even some of the other equipment they sell great prices good customer service a win win plus many bonus equipment to get the job done usually for free. Another con is that this unit will NOT play movies from the SD card slot only from the dvd player or from an external PMP like my cowon which it does a great job I can use the rear inputs (provided with the unit) or the front audio input jack (cables included for this too) IN short a great starter unit to get the job done.
    Pros:
    1. Touch Screen that is no glare (huge plus) 2. Mp3 playback (even though my album art does not show up) 3. plays dvd's and allows you to hook up external devices such as a PMP or game console ect (even includes the necessary input cables) 4. Physical controls for volume, Mute and eject + power. Con it does not have any for FF or Rew or skip buttons but the touch screen does these things 5. Has option (night Mode) to turn off screen at night while music still plays
    Cons:
    The biggest one is no GENERE Support no I can't believe that either but it does not so two Choices one you can just play one folder at a time or two dump all your files in one folder so you can hear all your songs not just one band at a time ps this means that it sees the file name like a computer does the outside name not the one embedded in the music. yes it can take up to a 16gig card but it has a 2000 file limit (including folders) so really at best about 9gigs meaning get an 8 gig card.

    Headunit is ok. I've had it in for a week and it's already glitching and freezing on me. I'm gonna see if I can return it and switch to a different brand. If your looking for a cheap headunit it's not bad until it freezes. I'd try looking at another headunit for a few more bucks.
    Pros:
    Easy install iPod navigation Slim and low profile
    Cons:
    Clunky ui Freezes Graphics could use some work

    Nice head unit

    Written By Wildcat1, Paducah, KY on Sunday, July 15, 2012

    Nice little entry level DVD Head unit. Takes appox 10 secs to load a disc, which is annoying. Lots of options, and easy to navigate. The Parking Brake lockout is VERY annoying. The parking brake wire to hook it to is not in the factory harness, and very hard to get to. Of course, one would need to abide by local laws regarding watching DVDs while driving. Makes factory speakers sound nice. Very good display.
    Pros:
    Nice display, Ease of use. options to add accessories. Remote included.
    Cons:
    Load time is annoying, parking brake lockout is troublesome. Sub out hookup is crappy.
