About the Dual XDMA760BT
You deserve Bluetooth®
You deserve Bluetooth®
If you're carrying a smartphone in your pocket or purse, you're ready to take advantage of all the potential benefits of Bluetooth when you're in the car. If you don't have a car stereo with Bluetooth, you can upgrade with Dual's XDMA760BT CD receiver, and you'll love the results (and how little it'll cost you!). This Dual's 3" LCD display offers sharp-looking graphics, making this car stereo a nice addition to your dash.
Enter the hands-free zone
Think about it. No more distractions when you get that important call while driving. Press a button on the receiver and just carry on a conversation. And that podcast you're dying to finish? You can start listening the moment you start the car. With Bluetooth streaming audio, you won't even have to plug in.
USB and you
The handy front-panel USB input supports iPhones® and iPods® — plug in and you'll have easy access to your favorite playlists, artists, podcasts, as well as control of your Pandora® account. And you can use the USB to plug in thumb drives loaded with MP3 and WMA music files as well. If you're not an iOS user, the auxiliary input handles the audio output from other phones or music players. If you love your CD collection, there's no reason to leave them at home. Slide in your favorite discs, whether store-bought or home-burned.
Kick up the sound
You've got seven easy-to-use preset EQ curves for adjusting the sound, or you can play sound engineer with the 3-band parametric equalizer. Three pairs of preamp outputs let you build a full-blown system with amps for your front and rear speakers, plus your subwoofer.

The XDMA760BT provides control over the Pandora music service and displays Artist, Album, and Song information.

MOSFET Amplifier: The Dual XDMA760BT is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit.
CTA2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the XDMA760BT are compliant with the CTA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Technology Association (CTA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers. The power output specs for the XDMA760BT are as follows:
- CTA2006 Specs: 18 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
- Maximum Power Output: 60 watts x 4 channels (240 watts total)
2V/6Ch Preamp Outputs: The Dual XDMA760BT is equipped with three pair of 2-Volt preamp outputs (Front/Rear/Sub). The front and rear preamp outputs are fadining, while the sub preamp output is non-fading.
Subwoofer Control: When the subwoofer preamp output is activated, you can adjust the output level (0-12) of the sub preamp output. You can also set the low-pass crossover to 80, 120, 160Hz, or Through (full-range).
Equalizer: The Dual CD Receiver features the following preset EQ curves (Flat, Pop, Jazz, Classic, Beat, Rock, or User) to customize your music listening. The User mode activates a 3-Band EQ which lets you adjust Bass, Midrange, & Treble manually. EQ settings are stored for each source.
|Bass||60, 80, 100, 200 Hz||-6 to +6|
|Midrange||0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.5 kHz||-6 to +6|
|Treble||10.0, 12.5, 15.0, 17.5 kHz||-6 to +6|
Loudness: The Loudness function enhances the bass & treble frequencies at low volumes.
Source Volume Level: The Source Volume Level control allows a gain adjustment for each audio source (Tuner, CD, Aux, Bluetooth, USB, iPod, Pandora). You can set the source volume level (+/-6dB) for each mode, depending on the relative volume of each audio source.
Program Volume: You can set the XDMA760BT to power-on to the same volume level (0-30) every time.
Key Beep: When this function is enabled, every button press will output a beep tone.
Detachable Fold-Down Face: The Dual XDMA760BT features a manual fold-down face-plate. The head unit needs 1.75" of clearance in front of it for the face-plate to fold down. The head unit's face-plate is detachable to deter theft. An optional soft face case (142DFC1X, sold separately) can be purchased for this unit.
3" LCD Screen: The Dual XDMA760BT features a 3" QVGA (320x24) TFT LCD screen with 3D-like background graphics. The 3" screen provides enough room to display song, artist, and album information at the same time. You can adjust the color, contrast, and brightness of the LCD screen.

12/24 Hour Clock: The unit's built-in clock can be set to 12-hour or 24-hour mode.
Demo Mode: You can enable or disable the units demonstration mode.
Wireless Remote Control: The XDMA760BT comes supplied with an 18-button IR wireless remote control which provides complete control of the Dual CD Receiver.
