It also has the same 3-band sound equalizer. There is an AUX input in the front panel that enables connecting a portable music player like the iPod, or a plug-and-play satellite radio for comprehensive music, sports, or news coverage. The stereo also features a set of preamp outputs for connecting an external amp and subwoofer. This piece doesn't have a USB input, which may partially explain the cheaper price. It competes with the 4 channel x 50 watt Kenwood KDC-138.
