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.
Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (VLSC): The DX-C390 uses Vector
Linear Shaping Circuitry to remove stray pulse noise for a smoother, richer analog
Direct Digital Path: Direct Digital Path signal routing provides
a shorter, cleaner path from the signal processing PC board to the digital outputs
than typically found on other players. This direct signal path routing is used to
prevent corruption of the signal by noise from the ICs and power supply.
MP3 Playback: This unit will play MP3 files recorded onto CD-R,
and CD-RW discs using the ISO 9660 level 1/level 2, Romeo, or Joliet formats. MP3
files with a sampling rate of 8-48 kHz and a bit-rate of 8-320 kbps are supported.
Fixed bit-rate MP3 files are recommended, however, variable bit-rate MP3 files are
supported. Each disc can have a maximum of 499 files and 99 folders.
Disc Exchange: You can exchange up to 5 discs while playing a
sixth; once the drawer is open, 2 CDs can be changed, then you must use the Disc
Skip button to remove the remaining three.
Next Selection: This feature allows you to choose the next track,
folder, or disc for playback, without interrupting the current song playing.
RI: RI remote control input and output mini-jacks allow you to
transmit remote codes from a compatible Onkyo unit to this unit.
Note: When only the RI cable is
connected, remote control operation is not possible;
the audio cables must also be connected.
