Color: This unit is black with a gray front panel and white lettering.
Mounting Angles: This changer may be mounted at a 0 (horizontal), 22.5, 45, 67.5, or 90 (vertical) degree angle (a 10 degree maximum deviation above or below the listed values is acceptable, so practical mounting limits are -10 to +10 degrees, 12.5 to 32.5 degrees, 35 to 55 degrees, 57.5 to 77.5 degrees, or 80 to 90 degrees. The changer should not be mounted beyond 90 degrees).
Learning Skip: The changer "learns which slots [of the magazine] are empty, so it remembers to skip ahead, accessing only the CDs that are actually loaded."
Hologram Pickup: An integrated hologram pickup that combines the laser diode, photodiode, diffraction grating, and other small opto-electronic parts into a single assembly; the results are a small pickup with excellent trackability, and high performance despite temperature changes and the passage of time.
Multi-Stage Noise Shaping (MASH): This feature helps prevent zero-cross distortion and non-linear distortion during CD playback; digital noise (distortion) is moved out of the audible range.
1-bit D/A conversion: Digital to analog conversion is accomplished with one 1-bit digital to analog converter.
