About the Dual XDM6830

The oversized control knob on Dual's XDM6830 CD/MP3 player makes system and volume adjustments a snap, but it's the stereo's large, bright display that really turns heads. Press a button and the whole faceplate motors down to accept your disc, while soft blue illumination lights up the control buttons.

The oversized control knob on Dual's XDM6830 CD/MP3 player makes system and volume adjustments a snap, but it's the stereo's large, bright display that really turns heads. Press a button and the whole faceplate motors down to accept your disc, while soft blue illumination lights up the control buttons.

You can fill up a CD-R or CD-RW disc with your favorite MP3 and WMA tunes and hit the road without having to worry about a stack of CDs. The XDM6830 can even display ID tag information for each of your digital music tracks. Five preset tone curves make on-the-fly sound adjustments a snap, while the loudness setting helps fill out the low frequencies at all volume levels.

If system building is your goal, the stereo's set of preamp outputs offers a convenient connection for an external amplifier or powered sub. Use Dual's unique "iPlug" to mount an input jack for your portable music player in a handy spot. The XDM6830 even comes with a wireless remote so your passengers can get in on the act.

Features

Auxiliary Input: The Dual XDM6830 is equipped with rear-mounted, stereo RCA auxiliary input jacks on a 5" pigtail.

iPlug: This unit features the iPlug, a 39" interface cable that connects a portable MP3 player (such as an iPod), or other portable audio source unit, to the receiver's auxiliary input. The iPlug has a dash-mountable 3.5mm female minijack that can be attached using the supplied adhesive pad or self-tapping screws.

MP3/WMA Playback: This unit can play MP3 and WMA files that have been recorded with constant bit rate (MP3: 8 to 320 kbps/WMA: 32-192 kbps) or variable bit rate compression on CD-R and CD-RW discs. The disc must be in one of the following formats: ISO 9660 level 1 or level 2, or Yellow Book MODE 1 or MODE 2 FORM 1. In addition, this unit is compatible with MP3 ID3 Tag version 1.0. Discs should be recorded with a maximum of 256 folders and files and 8 folder levels.

Skip Protection: An internal buffer provides ESP (electronic skip protection) to virtually eliminate skipping. The ESP is for MP3/WMA files only.

MP3/WMA Search Modes: The preset buttons and other buttons on the front panel can be used for entering letters or numbers to assist you in locating specific MP3 or WMA files and folders. The following search functions can be performed by this unit:

  • Direct File Select: search for specific file number
  • Alphanumeric File/Folder Search: search for file or folder names by entering alphanumeric characters
  • File/Folder Navigate: search the current folder for all available files

Preset EQ Curves: You can choose from five preset curves: Pop, Jazz, Classic, Beat and Rock. Any adjustment to the bass or treble settings automatically cancels the current EQ curve.

Source Audio Memory: Individual bass and treble settings are retained in memory for AM, FM, CD, and AUX modes.

Turn-on Volume: You can preset the unit's volume when it is powered on. Each time the unit is turned on, the volume is reset to the preset level regardless of the volume level when the unit was last turned off.

Display Priority: You can set the unit to a source display or time display priority. When set to source display priority, the radio tuner frequency, CD track/elapsed time, selected MP3/WMA information, or Aux display will be displayed by default. The clock can be accessed temporarily when the Display button is pressed. When set to time display priority, the clock is displayed by default, while the source information can be accessed temporarily with the Display button.

12/24 Hour Clock: When the unit's radio tuning interval is set to USA spacing, the clock is displayed in a 12-hour format. If the unit is switched to European frequency spacing, the clock switches to a 24-hour format.

Clock Display Note: Normally, the display illuminates only when the unit is on. You can program it so the clock is displayed when the unit is off. In this case, the clock display is "keyed," and will turn on and off as the ignition key is turned on and off.
