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.
MP3 Playback: The unit can
play MP3 files recorded onto CD-R and CD-RW discs using ISO9660 Level 1
or 2, Joliet, or Romeo formats. The player can recognize up to 8 hierarchical
levels, up to 254 total files, and up to 128 total folders. Bit rates for MP3
are 8-320 kbps, plus VBR (Variable Bit Rates).
The Z-Enhancer function features three types of sound tone effects stored in
memory. You may select Z-Enhancer 1 (bass emphasized), Z-Enhancer 2 (treble
emphasized) or Z-Enhancer 3 (bass and treble emphasized). When the Z-Enhancer
feature is on, the bass and treble controls cannot be adjusted.
Magna Bass EX (Extend):
Magna Bass EX feature provides an extra boost of bass when activated. Unlike
conventional loudness features which boost the low frequency range at around
100Hz, the Magna Bass EX boosts the low- and center-range frequencies of about
50Hz. By focusing on the lower frequencies, the added bass impact won't distort
or muffle the high frequencies.
bass control range is +/-14dB at 100Hz. The treble control range is +/-14dB at
Thirty seconds after a button is
pressed, the screen saver will activate, displaying a series of moving dashes.
It can be deactivated at any time.
Top Function: The Top
function resets the CD player to the first track of the disc.
Reload: When a CD is ejected and left
sticking out of the CD slot for 15 seconds, the unit automatically reloads the
CD to protect if from damage.
Position Memory: If you turn off the unit
while a disc is playing, it will resume playback at the stopping point when it
is turned on again.
Station Recall (ISR): You
can store one radio station in Instant Station Recall (ISR) memory and recall it
from any mode (except Power Off). Once the ISR station has been recalled, you
cannot tune to another station without first disengaging the ISR function. You
can, however, switch to another source.
Wireless Remote: The
DB355 is equipped with the RCB-172 infrared wireless remote control.
Dimensions: L=4.452", W=1.723", D=0.491".
