Our take on the Blaupunkt Miami Beach CD52 by Crutchfield's Robert Ferency-Viars
Fun. That's what Blaupunkt's engineers had in mind when they created the Miami Beach CD52 CD receiver. They know there's nothing like listening to your music on a high-powered receiver that sounds good, looks good, and is easy-to-use.
The control panel layout features a rotary control for quick adjustments and a simple, intuitive button arrangement. The multicolor display ensures maximum visibility. The Miami Beach packs a punch with a built-in high-power amplifier (25 watts RMS/50 peak x 4) that will make your CDs, CD-Rs, and CD-RWs sound terrific.
Blaupunkt's Codem III+ tuner provides crystal-clear AM/FM reception whether you're cruising 5th Avenue or out on Highway 55. Source tone memory stores different tone settings for CD or radio, eliminating annoying changes in volume and tone when switching sources. X-Bass provides effective low-frequency enhancement without muddying up your mids and highs.
Add the optional auxiliary input and power up your portable MP3 player, video game, or plug-and-play satellite radio system with some Blaupunkt muscle. Or hook up a CD changer to enjoy the entertainment variety of multi-disc playback. You can use the two sets of 3-volt preamp outputs to connect an external amplifier to your speakers or subwoofers. Add the optional remote for convenient control while watching the road.

Spectrometer Display: The Miami Beach CD52 features a selectable spectrometer level display. The spectrometer briefly provides a symbolic display of the volume and audio control settings while you are adjusting them. When no settings are being adjusted, the display will show a representation of the radio's output level. There are two spectrometer patterns to choose from, or the display can be turned off.
X-Bass: The X-Bass feature boosts bass response, centered at 72Hz, for more dynamic sound. You may select from two levels of boost (high/low), or you may turn the X-Bass feature off.
Source Tone Memory: The settings for Bass, Treble, Loudness, and X-Bass can be independently stored for each source (FM, AM, CD, CD-Changer, or AUX).
Power-On Volume Limit: Once the power-on volume limit is set, the receiver will turn on with the volume set at either the preset maximum or the volume setting when the receiver was last turned off, whichever is lower. This feature prevents you from being overpowered by an unexpected, high volume blast of output when you turn the unit on.
Adjustable Mute: You can quickly reduce the volume of the receiver by pressing the Mute button. The amount of volume reduction can be adjusted in the menu.
Ignition-off Clock Recall: When the ignition is off, the clock can be displayed for 5 seconds by pressing the display button.
Tuner: The Miami Beach CD52 has the Codem III+ analog tuner.
Tuner Configuration: This unit is equipped with a multi-band tuner. You can choose tuner parameters for America, Europe, Asia and Thailand.
Travel Store: You can automatically store the strongest 6 AM and 6 FM station using the Travel Store function. These presets are stored in bands FMT and AM.
Adjustable Sensitivity: You can select low or high sensitivity for the tuner when the radio is in the seek mode. When set to low sensitivity, the tuner stops only at the strongest stations, and when set to high sensitivity, the tuner stops at any receivable station.
Adjustable Scan Tuning: The scan feature briefly plays all the receivable stations. You can set the scanning time between 5 and 30 seconds. Note: When the radio scan time is changed, it also resets the CD intro scan time for the in-dash player and the connected CD changer.
Aux Input "Ready": If you're not connecting a CD changer to this unit, you can connect an optional auxiliary input harness (023AUXIN1R) to the CD changer connector to provide input for a portable cassette, MD or MP3 player. The inputs on the optional harness are female stereo RCA jacks.
Compatible With Optional Remote: This unit is compatible with the optional RC10 "Thummer"-type steering wheel mounted remote.
Changer Compatibility: The Miami Beach CD52 is compatible with the following Blaupunkt CD changers: CDC A08, CDC A06, CDC A072, CDC A02, and IDC A09. When connected to a compatible CD changer, it will control the following functions:
- Disc up/down
- Track up/down
- Track audible search (either direction)
- Track scan: the first 10 seconds of each track on each loaded disc are played
- Track repeat
- Disc repeat
- One Disc Random (called "Mix"): all the tracks on the current disc are played in random order
- Disc Random (called "All Mix"): Selects randomly from all discs in the changer and plays tracks in random order
