  • MBP (My Best Position) -- Optimizes system for listener's position; one push; easy operation.
  • D-Bass -- (Dynamic Bass) Sony's unique low frequency enhancement system which provides up to 18dB of gain to frequencies below 75Hz, without midrange coloration or interference.
  • Preamp Output -- Typically found on headunits, a preamp output provides low level, high quality audio signal for use with external amplifiers. Provides an ideal expansion point for high quality audio systems.
  • 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.
  • CD Text -- A compact disc and player feature utilizing disc, track and artist information encoded directly on the CD media. Both playback and media components must have CD Text compatibility.
  • 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.
  • Negative LC Display -- A liquid crystal display employing a dark backfield with its elements. This results in a primarily dark display, which improves cosmetic integration with a dark colored headunit.
  • Flip-Down Detachable Faceplate -- A DIN headunit who's faceplate hinges at the bottom to reveal a media loading slot. Provides a larger area on the face for the display and controls.
