Product Specifications

Trendy and progressive, unique innovation and style appeals to you. And so will the vividly chic MCM240 with dynamic sound performance packed in a sleek design with MP3-CD playback that can also be wall mounted. MP3 stands for "MPEG 1 Audio layer-3". MP3 is a revolutionary compression technology by which large digital music files can be made up to 10 times smaller without radically degrading their audio quality. MP3 has become the standard audio compression format used on the World Wide Web, allowing quick and easy audio file transfer. Digital Sound Control lets you select from pre-set modes that control the frequency bands of sound to optimize certain musical styles. You can chose between different sound settings - Optimal, Jazz, Rock, Techno, Pop or Classic. Each mode uses graphic equalizing technology to automatically adjust the sound balance and enhance the most important sound frequencies in your chosen music style. Digital Sound Control lets you get the most out of your music by adjusting the sound balance to match the music type you are playing. Dynamic Bass Boost maximizes your music enjoyment by emphasizing the bass content of the music throughout the range of volume settings - from low to high - at the touch of a button! Bottom-end bass frequencies usually get lost when the volume is set at a low level. To counteract this, Dynamic Bass Boost can be switched on to boost bass levels, so you can enjoy consistent sound even when you turn down the volume.
