Overview

Our take on the Aiwa CDC-X227

Aiwa takes pride in the great features they build into their lower-priced radios, and the CDC-X227 CD receiver is a shining example. The built-in amp (22 watts RMS/45 peak) has the muscle to make your CDs, CD-Rs, and CD-RWs sound great, even with the windows down. If you need some extra "thump," a set of preamp outputs sends a healthy signal to an outboard amp and subwoofer, while H-Bass lets you pump up the lows at the press of a button.

The detachable faceplate features a two-color display with volume meter, and you can select red or blue button illumination to match your dash. The large, illuminated "Smart Jog" knob makes it a breeze to make system adjustments. The CDC-X227 includes an auxiliary input, so you can connect a portable MP3, tape, or MD player — or even a plug-and-play satellite radio tuner!

Features

Smart Jog Knob: This unit is equipped with a large rotary knob that provides a convenient way to make adjustments.  Volume, bass, treble, balance, fader, H-Bass and clock adjustments are made using the Smart Jog knob. When the Smart Jog knob is turned, the button and face accent backlighting flashes on and off.

Source Level Adjuster: The relative level of each source (FM/AM/CD/AUX) may be adjusted, from -4 to +4, and the setting will be retained in memory. The level of each source can be set so there won't be drastic leaps in volume when changing from one source to another.

H-Bass: Instead of a loudness control, this unit is equipped with an H-Bass function. The H-Bass function can be turned on to obtain powerful bass, or it may be turned off for normal playback.

Front Panel Auxiliary Input: A front panel stereo mini-jack 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.
