More details on the Kenwood KDC-C717
Digital Optimum Servo Control (DOSC): This circuitry enables the CD changer to determine each disc's reflection rate and the modulation rate of its pits, enabling the changer to set the ideal servo gain for each disc. DOSC also adjusts servo gain and balance when it encounters vibration, scratches, dust, or fingerprints, reducing mistracking and skipping.
Precision Digital Timing (DPAC): A high-precision master clock circuit that is isolated from signal-processing circuits to eliminate interference. This ensures that digital information is processed at exactly the same rate as it was recorded, eliminating jitter (time-based errors that make music sound harsh).
Integrated Quad 1-Bit Digital-to-Analog Converter: Four digital-to-analog converters, two for each channel, improve playback sound quality, including musical detail and resolution. Using two converters for each channel reduces distortion by half.
Anti-Vibration Disc Transport: The disc transport mechanism uses soft butyl rubber insulators for exceptional shock resistance, along with ceramic-injected silicon oil that absorbs jarring vibrations even at extreme temperatures, reducing skipping and mistracking.
CD Compatibility: This unit will play prerecorded CDs, finalized CD-R discs, and finalized CD-RW discs.
CD Text: When playing CD Text encoded CDs, this changer will transmit the data for display on compatible Kenwood head units equipped with CD Text display capability.
Disc Naming: When used with a compatible head unit, the changer allows Disc Naming for 100 discs.
Mounting Angles: You
can install this changer at a
0-5 degree, 40-50 degree, or 85-90 degree angle. There
are angle switching dials on both sides of the unit that must be set to agree
with the mounting angle of the unit.
O-N switch: There is an O-N switch located behind the magazine door. When used with the 113KCAS200 adapter or older head units, it must be set to the O position which disables CD text. When set to the N position it will display CD text when used with a compatible head unit.
