24 Bit D/A Converter: The Kenwood Excelon KDC-X595 utilizes a
24-bit digital to analog converter for superior CD sound quality.
MOSFET Amplifier: The Kenwood Excelon KDC-X595 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. The power output specs for the
KDC-X595 are as follows:
- Full Bandwidth Power: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4
ohms, 20-20kHz, 1% THD)
- Maximum Output Power: 50 watts x 4 channels
Rotary Volume Control: The CD receiver uses a 7-way rotary
volume control that increases and decreases the volume of the stereo from 0 to
35. The rotary knob also controls other audio settings such as Balance, Fader,
Bass, Mid, Treble and preset EQ settings. In addition, the rotary knob allows
you to scroll through and select your music tracks when the Music Search
function is activated.
Volume Offset: The level of each source may be independently
adjusted to prevent radical leaps in output volume when switching from one
source to another. The available settings range from -8 to 0 (-8 to +8 for Aux
Supreme Setting: When MP3, WMA, and AAC files encoded at a low bit
rate (less than 96 kbps, 44.1k, 48kHz) are played, the Supreme Setting function
restores their high frequencies so the sound quality is closer to files encoded
at a high bit rate. The processing is optimized for the compression format and
the bit rate used. When the Supreme Setting is Off, the unit plays the original
sound stored in the audio file.
Speaker Settings: The Speaker Setting function tailors the
System Q Sound Control settings according to the type of speakers in your
vehicle. You may select a Speaker Setting of "SP Off" (flat), "SP OEM" (for OEM
factory speaker systems), "SP 6x9/6" (for systems with 6" and 6"x9" speakers),
