Dual's XHD6420 CD receiver puts the latest in radio technology in your dash. Its built-in HD Radio tuner lets you enjoy the outstanding sound quality and programming choices offered by free HD Radio broadcasts.

The sturdy internal amp provides the power needed to fill your car with sound. You can adjust the audio with the five selectable EQ curves, or tweak the bass and treble to your personal taste. The audio memory saves the settings for each of your sources, so you'll get the sound you want whether you're listening to CDs, HD Radio, or even an outboard source.

A front-panel auxiliary input offers a convenient connection for your portable player or a plug-and-play satellite radio. The CD drive plays discs burned with your favorite MP3 or WMA files, so you can hit the road with your ultimate long-playing road trip mix. A set of preamp outputs supplies signal to an amplifier or powered sub.

    Display Features

    Detachable Faceplate: The headunit features a detachable faceplate and comes supplied with a hard plastic carrying case.

    Display Priority: You can set the unit to a source display or clock display priority. When set to source display priority, the radio tuner frequency, CD track/elapsed time, selected MP3/WMA information (track name, directory name, title, artist, or album), or Aux display will be displayed. The display priority is easily changed with the Display button.

    Clock Display: Normally, the clock display illuminates only when the unit is on. You can program it so the clock is displayed when the ignition key is turned on and the unit is off.

    Audio Section

    CEA-2006 Compliant Amplifier: The Dual XHD6420 features a CEA-2006 Compliant rated amplifier that offers 17 watts RMS x 4 channels in 4 ohms at 1% THD+N with a Signal-To-Noise Ratio of 80dBA. The headunit also features one set of 2-volt preamp outputs for connecting an external amplifier.

    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.

    Bass And Treble: The headunit's Bass and Treble can be independently adjusted from -6 to +6 dB.

    Source Audio Memory: Individual bass and treble settings are retained in memory for AM, FM, CD, and AUX modes. This allows you to save the Bass and Treble settings separately for each mode.

    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.

    Beep Confirmation: You can enable or disable beep confirmation for the headunit's control buttons.

    HD Radio Tuner

    Built-In HD Tuner: In addition to the unit's standard analog AM/FM tuner, the headunit features a built-in HD AM/FM tuner. With the built-in HD Radio tuner, you can receive digital AM/FM broadcasts from local stations where available. This technology will significantly improve audio quality and reception, as well as include information such as artist name and song titles or traffic news, viewable on the receiver's display. HD radio delivers near CD quality sound to FM broadcasts, and FM sound to AM broadcasts. You can store up to 18 FM stations and 12 AM stations, including HD Radio stations. This headunit also supports HD Radio multicasting and allows multicast HD Radio stations to be stored as presets.

    Note: Your local stations much be broadcasting HD AM/FM broadcasts to receive HD Radio content. No subscriptions fee needed for HD Radio programming.

    HD Seek Mode: In addition to searching through both analog and digital stations, you can search only HD stations by using the headunit's HD Seek Mode. During this mode the headunit will skip over all analog stations and tune to only HD Radio stations.

    Automatic Presets: The headunit can automatically store the six strongest stations in the current band selected. Multicast channels are not stored during Auto Preset and must be manually preset.

    CD Playback

    SRAM Buffer: An internal SRAM buffer provides ESP (Electronic Skip Protection) to virtually eliminate skipping of your MP3/WMA CD-R/RW discs and allows alphanumeric or direct track search even while a song is currently playing.

    DSP Processor: The headunit's powerful on-board DSP processor decodes MP3/WMA compressed audio files while maintaining near-CD sound quality.

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

    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 for all available files within a folder

    External Device Connection

    Auxiliary Input: There is a front-mounted 3.5mm auxiliary input on the headunit for connecting an external portable audio device such as a portable MP3 player. If you aren't using the aux input, it can be turned off in the menu so when you toggle through the sources aux doesn't appear.
