Dual XD5125


$55.00 Released September, 2004

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Auxiliary input is a major selling point - allows users to connect CD players and portable media devices via 1/8" stereo mini jack. Stripped-down feature set is well-suited to the sub-$100 price point - provides decent capabilities with suitable sound quality amongst auxiliary and CD material. Preamp output enables high-quality external connectivity - excellent feature for users hoping to add a subwoofer or other type of additional speaker.

The Cons:AM/FM radio tuning is inconsistent - playback quality may be low-quality and sporadic in nature regardless of vehicle antenna and proximity to station. Manual radio tuner is a surprising and ultimately disappointing feature - analog knob-based control is at odds with all other digital features. Radio doesn't incorporate preset capabilities - puts unit at a severe disadvantage compared to similar models from Supersonic and Pyle.

The XD5125 is a lower-end in-dash receiver from car audio manufacturer Dual. It supports 100 W of total output power, distributed among four channels. To the XD5120's standard AM/FM/CD feature set, the XD5125 adds DVD playback and extra connectivity in the form of an AUX input and 1-pair preamp output.

Other features include a bass boost option, and an anti-shock mechanism which minimizes CD skipping. Unlike the XD5110 and 5120, the XD5125 features a detachable faceplate. But like the lower-end models, the XD5125 lacks many features common in today's in-dash receivers, like USB connectivity and support for iPods and satellite radio. It is no longer manufactured by Dual.
