Our take on the Blaupunkt RPD555 by Crutchfield's Charlie Pastorfield
Blaupunkt packs a tenacious AM/FM tuner, an excellent CD deck, and a powerful built-in amplifier (25 watts RMS/55 peak x 4) into its attractively-priced RPD555 CD receiver. The 1-bit D/A converter (with 8-times oversampling) delivers dead-quiet CD performance, and you'll appreciate little conveniences like the detachable face, seek tuning, scan, preset scan, CD repeat, and CD random play.
Source tone memory stores different bass and treble levels for CD or radio. For big bass performance, you'll find a set of preamp outputs to simplify adding an external amplifier and subwoofer. Press the attenuator button, and the volume will drop to the background level of your choice.Details:
- detachable face
- blue display
- ORC V tuner
- 18 FM/12 AM presets, including travel presets
