If you're just not listening to CDs anymore, Dual's XR4120 digital media receiver gives you a wallet-friendly way to enjoy your music collection on the road. You can listen to your favorite AM/FM stations, plug a thumb drive full of music into the USB port, jack your music player into the front minijack aux input, or fold down the faceplate to insert an SD card. It all sounds great on this Dual receiver, thanks to the healthy output of the built-in MOSFET amplifier. (Need Bluetooth? Check out the Axxera AM118BT digital media receiver.)

MOSFET Amplifier: The Dual XR4120 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. The power output specs for the XR4120 are as follows:
- CEA2006 Specs: 16 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
- Maximum Power Output: 60 watts x 4 channels (240 watts total)
Note: The power specifications for the XR4120 are compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers.
2V/2Ch Preamp Outputs: The Dual XRA4120 features a pair of 2-volt preamp outputs to connect an external amplifier. The preamp outputs are fading and cannot be set to non-fading.
Equalizer: The Dual digital media receiver features the following preset EQ curves (Flat, Pop, Jazz, Rock, & Off/User) to customize your music listening. The Bass & Treble can be independently adjusted from +/-7 when in Off/User EQ mode. Activating the Loudness feature will enhance the bass and treble frequencies when listening to music at low volumes.
Key Beep: When this function is enabled, every button press will output a beep tone.
AM/FM Tuner: The Dual XR4120 features a built-in AM/FM tuner with manual, seek, & preset tuning. The built-in AM/FM tuner allows you to store up to 18 FM station presets and 12 AM station presets. You can tune your presets manually or have the head unit do it automatically.
- Preset Scan: The Preset Scan feature automatically scans your saved preset stations in the selected AM/FM band for five seconds each.
- Local: The Local function allows only strong radio stations to be received, blocking stations with weaker signals.
- Mono Mode: Selecting the Mono mode can improve reception in areas with weak FM signals.
Note: You can switch the tuner between USA or European tuning.
Detachable Face: The Dual digital media receiver features a detachable faceplate to deter theft (no face case is supplied). An optional soft face case (142DFC1X, sold separately) can be purchased for this unit.
10-Character LCD: The XR4120 features a 10 character LCD with white text & black background for easy viewing during the day or nighttime; plus blue button illumination.
12/24 Hour Clock: The unit's built-in clock will display 12-hour AM/PM time in USA frequency spacing mode. In European frequency spacing mode, the clock will display 24-hour time.
Wireless Remote Control: The XR4120 comes supplied with an 17-button IR remote control which provides wireless control over the Dual digital media receiver.
