iPod® and iPhone® lovers — here's the receiver for you
Dual designed the XML8150 digital media receiver with an integrated flip-out dock that provides a direct connection and mount for your iPhone® or iPod®. You can adjust the mount for vertical or horizontal orientation of your device, whatever works best with the layout of your dashboard. You can use the controls on the receiver or your iPod to access your tunes, and the receiver dock keeps your device charged as you drive, too.
Even more ways to play your tunes
The XML8150 won't play CDs, but you sure won't be at a loss for entertainment. You can use the receiver's front-panel auxiliary input to connect a Dock & Play satellite radio, an MP3 player, or other audio source. You can also use the USB input or SD card slot to play back music files — it's like having a CD changer built into the player.
It's time to quit fumbling for your phone when you're driving, as this Dual offers hands-free calling with any compatible phone. When a call comes in, the XML8150 mutes your music, while you conduct your conversation over your vehicle's speakers. If you've got music stored on your mobile device, you'll appreciate how Bluetooth audio streaming lets you listen to your favorite music without plugging in your phone.
Your system, your sound
This Dual's sound controls are a definite step up from most factory systems. The 3-band parametric equalizer lets you adjust the levels and slope of specific frequencies, making it easy to custom tune the audio output to your liking. If you like a one-button approach, select from one of the seven preset EQ curves. Three sets of preamp outputs simplify hooking up amps, and you can even control the level of bass with the subwoofer level control.
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 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.
This digital media receiver will not play CDs. If you want to play CDs in your vehicle, we offer a wide selection of CD receivers.
