Play all your tunes
Dual includes their patented iPlug™, a 40" cable which connects your iPod® or another portable directly to the XDVD710 for maximum fidelity. Just mount the iPlug in a convenient spot so you can plug in without getting tangled up in wires.

The XDVD710 will also play discs loaded with MP3 and WMA files for even more options. A handy audio/video input lets you hook up even more sources, like a game system, satellite radio, or an MP3 player.

Watch videos
Watch movies up front while you're parked, or hook up a monitor in back so your riders can watch their favorite DVDs while you drive. The rear A/V input lets you connect another source, giving your backseat passengers even more entertainment options, so you and your co-pilot can enjoy peace and quiet up front.

Nice sound, right out of the box
A strong built-in amplifier belts out your tunes and movies with ease, while the 24-bit digital-to-analog converter ensures superior sound. Tweak the tone to your liking using the bass and treble controls. Front, rear, and sub preamp outputs help you build a complete system with amps and subs.

Note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver.

2002 Chrysler Sebring
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Decent little head unit with a couple of drawbacks. The installation was simple provided you have a soldering iron, a steady hand and the ability to read wire diagrams. The screen opens and closes relatively quickly, but it is there that the issues begin. The touchscreen is very hard to read in bright sunlight, even at 100% brightness, and does not always register touches on the first attempt. The sound is exquisite, definitely loud enough through the factory speakers in a 2002 Sebring. The unit shipped with a defective remote, but once I figured out how to access the menu through the touchscreen it was a non-issue. Buyers should know that the 7" screen is useless when using the integrated iPlug cable, as it just comes up "No Video Signal" and shows an ugly blue Dual logo background. EQ and audio settings are also not available for Aux-In. All-in-all a good unit, it just has some firmware and feature quirks that definitely set it apart from higher-priced units.
