  • MD/CD/TV Control w/Custom File – The ability of a component to operate a CD or MD disc changer and a TV tuner.
  • Custom File – A feature package that provides intuitive and safe source management for an audio and A/V system. Examples include Disc Memo , Station Memo and Memo List.

  • Station Memo – A Custom File feature that allows the user to assign an eight character name to a tuner frequency.
  • Shock Resistant Memory – An electronic circuit that stores the audio data stream from a CD or MD in a memory buffer. If the laser pick-up mistracks, audio still flows from the buffer preventing an interruption.
  • Wide Bit Stream Processing – This technology maintains 20-bit precision through the recording process for clearer reproduction of delicate, low-level music.
  • 8x Oversampling – A digital filter which calculates 7 additional samples between those taken from the disc which provides a closer representation of the original analog signal and therefore better sound quality.
