About the Aiwa CDC-X144
Aiwa's CDC-X144 is a low-priced CD receiver that has a lot to offer. You get a MOSFET amplifier section that offers plenty of tune-pumping power (22 watts RMS x 4 channels), plus seven preset tone curves and a 3-band equalizer for tuning the sound. Turn on H-Bass for some low-frequency reinforcement.
Driver's Sound Stage Adjustment shifts the musical image to make the driver's seat the center of the musical action. For adding to your listening fun, Aiwa's front-panel auxiliary input makes it easy to connect your portable music player. Choose from amber or green display lighting to make it look right at home in your dash.
Like to burn CD mixes at home? The CDC-X144 plays CD-Rs and CD-RWs as well as conventional audio CDs. If you're looking for even more hard-hitting action, a set of preamp outputs allows you to hook up an external amp to drive a subwoofer.Details:

DSSA: You can adjust the sound stage and tone balance to best serve a particular seat in the vehicle using the Driver's Sound Stage Adjustment (DSSA). The DSSA control is preset for the front left or front right seat. Once you have chosen a particular seat setting, you can further manually adjust the balance and fader settings.
Front Panel Aux Input: The CDC-X144 features a 1/8" stereo mini-jack on the front panel to allow you to connect a portable cassette, Minidisc, or MP3 player. The volume of the connected auxiliary source unit can be controlled by the receiver.
Switchable Rear Preouts: This unit has one pair of preamp outputs which can be switched between "Rear" and "Subwoofer." When the preouts are switched to "Subwoofer" they are not affected by the fader control, plus you can independently select the cutoff frequency of the low-pass filter (78Hz, 125Hz, or Off), and adjust the volume of the subwoofer (+10 to -10 and Attenuate).
H-Bass: Instead of a loudness control, this unit is equipped with an H-Bass function. Conventional bass boost circuits also affect the mid-bass and midrange, resulting in a muddy, "boomy" sound. H-Bass provides true deep bass enhancement for a dynamic bottom end that does not destroy the clarity of vocals and other mid-frequency content. H-Bass enhancement can be switched on or off, and does not affect the preamp output signal when it is switched to "Sub."
Equalizer: The receiver has 7 preset equalizer curves for different music types: Hip-Hop, Vocal, Club, Jazz, Pops, Rock, and Custom. Once you have selected a preset EQ curve, you can further adjust the low (60Hz), mid (1kHz), and high (10kHz) bands from -10 to +10dB.
Source Level Adjuster: The relative level of each source (FM/AM/CD/AUX) may be adjusted, from -6dB to +6dB in 1dB steps, 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.
Dimmer: You can lower the brightness of the display and button illumination by switching on the dimmer in the menu. The dimmer function is controlled manually, and is not affected by the vehicle's headlight circuit.
