CD-400 PDF Brochure (http://www.nakamichi.com/pdf/Naka%20-%20CD400%20FA.pdf)

This revolutionary head unit represents a radical departure from the industry norm as it delivers true audiophile-sound quality.

The CD-400 incorporates state-of-the-art 24-bit digital-to-analog converters – an advanced technology application unheard of before in the mid-price range. The result – audibly superior musical reproduction!

To complement the ultimate in digital-to-analog conversion accuracy, a high-resolution preamplifier circuit topology was developed to achieve ultra low-noise and distortion levels and a highly linear signal transmission to the powerful and dynamic 47 W x 4 channel power amplifier. Additionally, triple-band tone controls, a Nakamichi tradition, are included to allow for fine-tuning the bass, midrange and high frequency ranges - essential for the corrective compensation of the poor acoustics in automobile interiors or source program material.

The unit's extraordinary mechanics and electronics are combined with an equally refined cosmetic design. Understated, yet sophisticated, CD-400 will grace the dashboard of any automobile in which it is fitted. The color of the front panel illumination is user-selectable to best match the color scheme of the automobiles' dash. On the LCD display, green or amber is selectable as are the units illuminated push buttons, allowing for four different color combinations.
