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.
Inputs and Outputs Notes
The DCM-390 features an HDCD (High Definition Compatible Digital) decoder. HDCD
is an encoding/decoding technology that greatly reduces the distortion occurring
at the time of digital recording while maintaining compatibility with the
conventional CD format. HDCD allows 20-bit data to be converted to the 16-bit
data of current CDs with no loss in sound quality. HDCD-compatible CDs are
automatically identified by the player, and the optimum digital signal
processing is used.
Disc Exchange: You
can exchange up to 4 discs while playing a fifth;
once the drawer is open, 3 CDs can be changed, then you must use the disc skip
button to remove the remaining one.
Music Calendar: The
player has a 20-track music calendar.
MP3/WMA Playback: This unit will
play MP3 and WMA files recorded onto CD-R and CD-RW discs using the ISO 9660 level format. A maximum of
256 folders can be played and the total number of files and folders is 512.
Up to 32 tracks can be programmed and played in any order.
Random Play: This
unit allows you to choose Full Random Play, Program Random Play, or Disc
Sequential Random Play. When Full Random Play is selected, all the tracks on the
loaded discs are played in random order. When Program Random Play is selected,
all the programmed tracks are played in random order. When Disc Sequential
Random Play is selected, you can select the CDs to be played in random order. Up
to 5 discs can be selected.

you to repeat the current track, current disc, or all discs. In addition, you
