Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Digital Optimum Servo Control (DOSC):
This circuitry enables the CD changer to determine each disc's reflection rate
and the modulation rate of its pits, enabling the changer to set the ideal servo
gain for each disc. DOSC also adjusts servo gain and balance when it encounters
vibration, scratches, dust, or fingerprints, reducing mis-tracking and skipping.
Precision Digital Timing (DPAC):
A high-precision master clock circuit that is isolated from signal-processing
circuits to eliminate interference. This ensures that digital information is
processed at exactly the same rate as it was recorded, eliminating jitter
(time-based errors that make music sound harsh).
Integrated Quad 1-Bit
Digital-to-Analog Converter: Four
digital-to-analog converters, two for each channel, improve playback sound
quality, including musical detail and resolution. Using two converters for each
channel reduces distortion by half.
Anti-Vibration Disc Transport:
The disc transport mechanism uses soft butyl rubber insulators for exceptional
shock resistance, along with ceramic-injected silicon oil that absorbs jarring
vibrations even at extreme temperatures, reducing skipping and mis-tracking.
Mute: This feature shuts off the digital-to-analog
converter output during silent passages, yielding absolute silence between
This unit will play prerecorded CDs, finalized CD-R discs, and finalized CD-RW
MP3 Playback: This
unit can play MP3 files recorded on CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW discs in ISO9660
Level 1/Level 2, Joliet, and Romeo formats. In order for this changer to play
files, each disc should not have more than 8 directory levels, 50
folders, and 255 files per folder. Files and folders are accessed in the order
in which they were written by the CD writer.
When used with a compatible head unit, the changer allows Disc Naming for 100
You can install this changer at a 0-5 degree, 40-50 degree, or 85-90 degree
angle. There are angle switching dials on both sides of the unit that must be
set to agree with the mounting angle of the unit.
There is an O-N switch located behind the magazine door. When used with the
113KCAS200 adapter or older head units, it must be set to the O position which
disables CD text. When set to the N position it will display CD text when used
with a compatible head unit.
Warranty Note: Some units were
incorrectly packaged with a 1 year warranty card. Per Kenwood, the actual
warranty period is 2 years, parts and labor.
