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.
The CDX-GT200 features the Drive S chassis platform. Drive S includes the CD
mechanism, audio stages, 12 V power supply, and tuner section. The CD mechanism
includes a suspension to resist shocks, a motor that draws less power, and a
fast low-current pickup that improves durability and CD playback accuracy. The
52W x 4 S-MOSFET Power IC produces clearer, more accurate sound, less
distortion, and a higher signal-to-noise ratio than previous designs.
ATRAC CD Playback: The
CDX-GT200 plays ATRAC3plus/ATRAC3 files recorded on CD-R and CD-RW discs. Each
ATRAC disc can have a maximum of 255 groups and 999 files.
This unit can play MP3/WMA files recorded on CD-R and CD-RW discs in ISO9660
Level 1/Level 2, Joliet, and Romeo formats. Each disc should have a maximum of
150 folders and 300 files/folders. During playback, the unit displays any
recorded ID3 Tag information.
EQ3: You may select one of the
following EQ presets: Xplod, Vocal, Club, Jazz, New Age, Rock, or Custom. For
each preset, you can adjust the following frequencies: 60 Hz (Low), 1 kHz (Mid),
and 10 kHz (High). The level of each frequency can be adjusted from +10 dB to
-10 dB in 1 dB increments.
Best Tuning Memory (BTM):
This feature selects stations with the strongest signals within the selected
band and stores them in order of their frequency.
Rear/Subwoofer Preamp Outputs:
The CDX-GT200 has a set of preamp outputs that can be set
for Rear or Subwoofer output. When Subwoofer is selected, the outputs have a
selectable low-pass filter (78 Hz, 125 Hz, or Off) and the output level is
Front Panel Auxiliary Input: A
front panel stereo minijack is provided to allow the connection of a portable
audio source. Just connect your portable cassette, MD or MP3 player to this
unit, and you can listen to the audio from the portable player through the
speakers in your mobile audio system.
For flexibility of installation, this unit can be mounted between 0 (horizontal)
and 45 degrees.
Pressing the Off button once will turn off audio output, but the clock display
and face/button illumination remain on. This makes the clock display and
face/button illumination "Keyed" instead of "Unit On" only. To turn the unit off
completely, you must press the Off button for two seconds.
When installing in a vehicle without an accessory power wire at the
radio location, you must turn the radio completely off (this defeats
keyed operation), or you may wire the accessory power wire of this radio
to an alternate source of accessory power to retain keyed clock and
face/button illumination operation.
