Playing your tunes

The USB slot is also perfect for connecting thumb drives or other portable music players. The CD drive plays your favorite MP3 or WMA files, so you can load a disc with multiple albums or stacks of files and hit the road. A front-panel auxiliary input makes the XHD6430 even more versatile, providing a convenient place to plug in your portable player or a Dock & Play satellite radio.

Ever hear a tune you like on the radio but couldn't remember it when you got home? With your iPod connected and an HD Radio station tuned in, you can "tag" the songs you like to buy later on iTunes. Once a song is tagged, you'll be reminded to purchase it from the iTunes store the next time you sync your iPod on your home computer.
Power and tone
Dual designed the XHD6430 to play great no matter what the source. The built-in amplifier boasts plenty of power, to improve your music's clarity and impact, and five selectable EQ curves sculpt the tone to match your car's environment. The two sets of preamp outputs allow plenty of options if you're considering adding amps and subs. The rear output can be switched to subwoofer mode, giving you control over your bass level from the driver's seat.
