Overview

Our take on the Dual XDM6351

Just the basics...and then some
No iPod? No problem, if you have Dual's XDM6351 CD receiver in your dash. This sharp-looking car stereo will play all of your CDs, and it's got plenty of power to make your music sound great. Load up a USB drive or an SD™ card with your favorite MP3 and WMA music files, and you're good to go. You can store hundreds, even thousands, of tunes on either one, so you'll never want for music while you're driving around. Dual even gives you a wireless remote so your passengers can control the action.

Plug in other sources, plus add on
Dual gives you a convenient front-panel auxiliary input for adding more music sources to the mix — plug in a Dock & Play satellite radio, your iPod, or another portable player. You'll also get a set of preamp outputs, good for adding an amp or powered sub.

The customer service was outstanding. I had never replaced a car stereo before. The online help and the step-by-step instructions were spot on. Thanks.

    • CEA2006 Specs: 18 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • Maximum Power Output: 60 watts x 4 channels (240 watts total)
