Product information

Plays Music From USB Sticks

The USB connection lets you directly play back music files from your USB sticks. Songs from USB memory are automatically put in alphabetical order.

24-bit DAC

Rather than using the iPod for D/A conversion, the Digital Media Receiver takes the digital signal from the iPod and converts it to analogue using its own 24-bit DAC for much higher signal quality.

Upgrade Your System



A great system addition that gives you hands-free operation of your Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone with full phonebook access and A2DP AV streaming and AVRCP Device Operation ready. Parrot software updates provide support for future phones.


This compact upgrade instantly boosts the power of your system. Easy to install, it fits neatly behind your head unit, so there’s no need for additional wiring or special installation.
