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.

100dB signal-to-noise rating listed in the Crutchfield database appears on the CDC-A08 box
and is Blaupunkt's "weighted" S/N rating. Also, shown on the box is an
"unweighted" S/N rating of 95dB, and the manual gives an unweighted rating of
94dB. The 94dB unweighted rating shown in the manual and the 95dB rating shown on the box
