There is a MDX-C150RDS variation, RDS standing for Radio Data System allowing the unit to decode data from FM such as station names and track info.

Features: ATRAC 2. Wired remote. Weird negatives (compared to the original MDX-U1 unit):

  • Can't label radio stations
  • Only 10 character display
  • Only 1 pre-amp output
  • Track info doesn't scroll by default

Positives (compared to the original MDX-U1 unit)

  • Better display
  • LOUDness option
  • Better look
  • Larger preset buttons

4 x 8 watts according to stereo review.. The RDS model claims 4 x 22 watts.

Release date on is incorrect. It is currently estimated based on the stereo review magazine date but even that is likely later than it's actual release date.

Optical Pickup: KMS-193A/J-N
ATRAC chip: CXD2531BR
