Our take on the Blaupunkt Austin
From Joe Ely to Commander Cody, all the hot sounds of Texas will sound cool as a canyon breeze with Blaupunkt's Austin CD receiver. Four-way high power (25 watts RMS/50 peak) helps to satisfy your longing for "loud," while X-Bass adds some Lone Star-style low-frequency punch to your sound.
For full-tilt crankability, three sets of preamp outputs front, rear, and subwoofer are available for connection to external amps and subs. The ORC V tuner quenches your thirst for great reception. The Austin features CD changer controls .Details:

Display/Button Illumination: This unit has a negative blue display with white indicators. The buttons are backlit with red illumination.
Level Meter Displays: There is a left channel level meter along the left portion of the display, and there is a right channel meter along the right portion of the display. You may select from four meter patterns, or you may turn the meter displays off.
Source Tone Memory: Each source (AM/FM/CD) can store its own bass and treble levels.
Selectable Maximum Turn-on Volume: You may set the maximum volume level that will be active when the unit is turned on. Once you've set the maximum turn on volume into memory, you won't have to worry about being overpowered by an unexpected, high volume blast of output when you turn the unit on.
Subwoofer Preamp Outputs: In addition to the 3V front and rear preamp outputs, there is a set of 3V subwoofer preamp outs. The signals passed by the subwoofer preouts are low-pass filtered with a 100Hz, 12dB/octave crossover.
X-Bass Bass Boost: The X-Bass feature boosts bass response, centered at 72Hz, for more dynamic sound. You may select from four levels of boost, or you may turn the X-Bass feature off.
Tuner: This unit is equipped with Blaupunkt's ORC V Tuner.
Scan and Preset Scan Tuning: The scan feature allows you to listen to each station in a band (AM or FM) for 8 seconds, until you stop the scan function by selecting the station you want to hear. The preset scan feature allows you to listen to each preset station in a band (AM or FM) for 8 seconds, until you stop the scan function by selecting the preset station you want to hear.
Station Naming: You can enter names of up to 8 characters each for up to 30 radio stations.
Station Call: Once you've entered names for radio stations, you may search for and select stations by name.
Ignition-off Clock Recall: When the ignition is off, the clock can be displayed for 5 seconds by pressing the display button.
Turn On/Off Messages: When you turn on the unit, "HELLO" will be displayed, then "WELCOME" will be displayed for a brief period before output is heard. When you turn off the unit, "SEE YOU" will be displayed, then "GOOD-BYE" will be displayed for a brief period. You may edit the on/off messages, so messages of your choice are displayed. Each of the preset messages ("HELLO", "WELCOME", "SEE YOU" and "GOOD-BYE") may be replaced with a message of up to 8 characters.
Aux Input "Ready": An optional aux input harness may be purchased and connected to this unit (as long as a CD changer is not connected) to provide input for a portable cassette, MD or MP3 player. The input on the optional harness is a male 3.5mm stereo mini-jack. When a CD changer is connected to the head unit, there is no place to connect the AUX input adapter, so CD changer use prevents access to the AUX input feature.
Compatible With Optional Remote: This unit is compatible with the optional RC823 wireless remote.

Display Illumination/Clock Display: The clock display and display illumination may be set to turn on with the ignition, or you may configure the unit so the clock and display illumination are active only when the unit is on. When your vehicle has no accessory position on the ignition switch and both power wires of the radio are connected to constant power, the unit should be set so the clock and illumination only display when the unit is on.
