CDs, MP3s, and more

Use the XDM270's tuner to listen to your favorite radio stations, or slide in your favorite CDs, including those loaded with MP3 and WMA files, The convenient front-panel USB input lets you play MP3 or WMA files from USB thumb drives (sorry, no iPhone® or Android™ compatibility). You'll appreciate the front-panel aux input for playing music from a smartphone or other device.

Crank it up

You'll enjoy some pretty potent power from the XDM270's built-in amp. And if you want to add some punch, a set of preamp outputs make it easier to add an amp or a powered sub.

    I got this for my 2003 F150 Ford truck. It was a bit challenging to mount and connect it but I've had good reception from the radio. For an older vehicle it's hard to beat but you have to be resourceful to install it.

    Q
    Does the XDM270 have good radio (especially FM reception)?, cause the last radio I bought last year from here for my wife's truck, don't get me wrong, it was a nice radio with great sound, good CD player, and all that, but I guess depending on what location I was in, a few FM stations I kinda struggled with trying to get good reception.
    [ Perry  May 30, 2020 ]

    This Dual receiver does have an FM tuner that is stronger than the tuners found in some brands but not all. I recommend contacting an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 to get an idea of how it compares to the one you have and if needed, get a recommendation on a radio with a stronger FM tuner
    [ Paul  Jun 21, 2020 ]  Staff
    A
    Yes. It is a good radio, especially with the CD player. And setting it up was easy too.

    Q
    Will the AUX input jack work even if the factory one I have already in my Scion is not working? The factory one only sometimes works so i suspect a loose wire or something. Will this bypass that input?

    yes it should work because it bypasses the factory input.

    Unfortunately no it doesn't. This is an entry level radio that offers mp3 capabilities through CD or USB flash drive. It also does not allow for SiriusXM connection and controls, but does have an auxiliary input for phone or external device and plug and play SiriusXM radio.

    What does no iPod / Iphone control mean?
    [ Amber  Nov 24, 2018 ]
    1 answer
    A
    It means that while the stereo has a USB port, it does not have the ability to display, control or play content from an iPod/iPhone connected to the port. It can charge these devices via USB but offers no other functionality for them.
