About the Panasonic CQ-DF802U
Panasonic uses its expertise with LCD display technology to take stealth faceplates to the next level. The CQ-DF802U CD receiver features a "Ghost" display a virtual control panel (there aren't any buttons) that seems to disappear into thin air when you turn off the unit! All that remains is a flat black panel.
The ghost LCD is also a touch sensor that lets you easily control the receiver. A light touch on the large, crisply-lit panel is all it takes. Plus, the LCD screen allows for dynamic controls that change function based on the particular menu you're in at the time. Choose from seven accent colors to customize the display to your vehicle. Multiple contrast and dimmer settings guarantee good visibility.
Sure, it looks great, hides itself, and is extremely easy to use, but how does it sound? This receiver packs a MOSFET50 amplifier for strong, clean power, so it sounds great! Super High Definition Bass offers two settings ("Boom" and "Tight") so you can adjust the bass to your tastes. And Panasonic technology ensures that CD playback and radio reception will be first-rate.
The list of features also includes 3 sets of 5-volt preamp outputs, CD changer controls, an auxiliary input, and a wireless remote. And the CQ-DF802U plays CDs, CD-Rs, and CD-RWs, so slide in your favorite disc and enjoy your drive!

Touch Sensor Screen: Since the CQ-DF802U has a touch sensor screen, a light touch of your fingertip is all it takes to perform most operations. Large text and button graphics make the display easy to read and easy to use. There is a different layout for each mode, allowing the interface to remain clear and understandable. Frequently used volume and menu buttons are rendered in lifelike 3D for a "virtual" car audio appearance.
"Ghost" Blackout Panel: When the unit is off, the display turns completely off. With the display illumination off, all you see is a flat, blank, gloss-black front panel, so it appears as though there isn't a radio in the dash. For added security, you can detach the panel and take it with you.
Shutter LCD: This unit uses a shutter LCD to deliver a sharp color display.
Super Bright Display: With a Super Bright Display, this unit provides high visibility even in daylight, thanks to its CFL (cold cathode fluorescent lamp) backlight. There's even a 3-step dimmer so you can adjust the brightness to match day and night driving conditions. In addition, you can adjust the display contrast from 1 to 5 for optimum readability.
Customizable Display Colors: You can choose one of the following colors for the "virtual" volume and menu buttons: Fire (red), Twilight (purple), Sky (blue), Ocean (aqua blue), Forest (green), Level (changes color according to the volume level), or Storm (cycles through all the colors plus white and yellow).
Spectrum Analyzer Display Patterns: You can select from 5 different spectrum analyzer display patterns.
Front Panel Brightness: In addition to the dimmer function, the front panel brightness can be adjusted to one of the following settings: Sleep (the entire front panel darkens and the illuminated colors inside the panel change in appearance), Peek (bright), or Look-In (brighter than Peek).
MOSFET50 Amplifier: This receiver is equipped with a 50 watts x 4 (peak) MOSFET amplifier for low distortion and high power output.
Multi-Stage Noise Shaping: This technology helps prevent zero-cross distortion and non-linear distortion. It requantizes the CD data, "shaping" it to move digital noise out of the audible range. Pulse width modulation (PWM) then reconstructs the analog waveform with true precision.
S-HDB (Super High Definition Bass): This feature accentuates bass output even at high volumes. This is different from ordinary loudness controls that often become ineffective when volume is raised. You may select "BOOM" (strong bass boost), "TIGHT" (moderately emphasized bass), or "Off".
Alphatuner V: The tuner is designed to help suppress multi-path distortion and reduce the problem of radio signal reflections in metropolitan areas. It also features increased sensitivity for weak signal areas.
Subwoofer Preamp Outputs: In addition to the 5V front and rear preamp outputs, this unit has a set of 5V subwoofer preamp outputs. The subwoofer preamp outputs have a selectable low-pass crossover that can be set to 80Hz or 120Hz. Additionally, the subwoofer volume level is adjustable from -6dB to +6dB in 2dB increments.
Auxiliary Input: A set of female RCA jacks is provided to allow the connection of a portable audio source. Just connect your portable cassette, MD or MP3 player to this unit, and you can listen to the audio from the portable player through the speakers in your mobile audio system. The jacks are on a 6" long pigtail attached to the back of the unit.
Blinking Security Indicator: When the face is removed, a red LED blinks on the front panel of the radio. The security indicator can be deactivated.
Compatibility: This unit can control compatible 6-disc and 8-disc Panasonic CD changers.
Multiple Changer Control: Using the optional CA-CD55 dual changer adapter, you can control two compatible Panasonic changers with this head unit.
Changer Controls: In addition to basic disc navigation features, this unit has the following changer controls: direct disc access (using the remote), disc intro scan (using the remote), track intro scan (using the remote), track repeat, disc repeat, disc random, and all disc random.Note
Display Illumination/Clock Display: When the Display Setting has been set to clock, pressing and holding the source section on the display turns off audio output, but the clock display and display illumination remain on. When the Display Setting has not been set to clock, pressing and holding the source section of the display turns the unit off completely. This unit's clock is "keyed" only when the Display Setting has been set to clock.
