Our take on the Dual XD7500 by Crutchfield's Tim Sprinkle
Give your dash some 21st-century style with Dual's sleek, silver XD7500 CD receiver. Its two-step, motorized faceplate (a feature usually found on much more expensive receivers) slides into position at the touch of a button giving you access to all of the receiver's controls, the bright dot-matrix LCD display, and the oversized encoder knob. Hit the Eject button, and the display lowers itself to reveal the CD slot.
Five selectable EQ curves make it easy to adjust your sound on the fly, while audio memory lets you jump back and forth between sources without adjusting your EQ settings. Looking for more options? The auxiliary input allows you to add a portable music player, add-on satellite radio tuner, or other music source. You can even connect an external amp or powered subwoofer to the set of preamp outputs to give your music a little more thumption!

Two-step, Motorized Faceplate: When the open button is pressed, the outer faceplate motorizes in a slide down motion to reveal a dot-matrix LCD. All information is viewed on the display, while system control is performed from the outer faceplate. When you hit the Eject button, both faceplates lower to reveal the CD slot.
