About the Dual XD1222
Talk about bang for your buck — Dual's XD1222 CD receiver gives you a slew of handy features for a fraction of the cost of most other stereos. Its user-friendly controls, detachable face, and solid tone make it a nice upgrade from many factory radios.
Play all your store-bought or recordable CDs, and you can tweak the sound to your liking with the bass and treble controls or by choosing from three preset EQ curves. Use the handy front-panel auxiliary input to listen to your iPod®, MP3 player, or Dock & Play satellite radio. You can also connect an amp or a powered sub to the set of preamp outputs.
Dual adds another handy feature — a front-panel USB charging port. It'll charge most USB-equipped devices, including MP3 players and cell phones, so your important devices won't go dead during a long road trip.
