Features

The DCM-290 lets user to enjoy regular CDs as well as MP3 and WMA encoded CD-R/RW discs. It allows CD-R and CD-RW playback. Multilevel Noise Shaping DAC installed removes the adverse effects of jitter and because it is built into the output amp, a clean analog output with suppressed high-frequency interference can be directly obtained.

Moreover, user enables to control connected amplifier or receiver (only if it supports Remote Control IN/OUT feature), allowing more control and will be handy if the main unit is placed in another room. Plus, it enables user to combine up to 32 tracks from up to five CDs loaded for full selection of program playback.
