Any modern car does not do without musical system. On all new cars already in a basic complete set are established the radio tape recorder together with columns. But we can , and the musical system is installed already at the choice of car maker. Our requirements to quality of sounding constantly change, and at some point already there are a wish to choose the autoradio tape recorder which would possess the best characteristics and higher functionality. And, as we know, technologies are done not stand still. And every year producers of automobile audio equipment let out more and more models of autoradio tape recorders, both budgetary, and equipped so to speak "against the stop".
Autoradio tape recorder CD/MP3/DVD
The quantity and type of the supported formats of reproduction of audio and video will be defining at an autoradio tape recorder choice. Cassette autoradio tape recorders in this article will not be considered as demand for them gradually decreases. They are in demand only for at whom the archive of records on cartridges remained. Though many important characteristics are the general at a choice (power, number of channels, inputs and outputs, the tuner). Therefore information stated in article will be useful to all.
CD автомагнитолы are most widespread: carriers are very practical, reliable and available at the price. As optimum option will be to choose the autoradio tape recorder with the MP3 decoder that will allow to contain a large number of songs on one disk. For today appeared and gradually win market DVD автомагнитолы which in couple the monitor give the chance of viewing of video. Reproduction from disks of any format has one big shortcoming. When joltings pieces of music can "drop out". Producers fight against it or at the expense of the better mechanism of reproduction, or use "anti-shock" – the memory buffer in which this piece is read out in advance.
Output power of the autoradio tape recorder
On what it is necessary to pay attention, choosing the autoradio tape recorder, so it on output power. The main indicators of output power are nominal and maximum capacities of the radio tape recorder. Long listenings of music happens to rated power therefore to choose the autoradio tape recorder according to this characteristic. Than more there will be a power of the autoradio tape recorder chosen by you, especially high-quality sounding can achieve at the smaller level of a sound. But often on packing only the maximum power which matters only in those short intervals of time when at reproduction there are jumps in loudness is specified. To be convinced of correctness of a choice of this or that autoradio tape recorder, it is necessary to glance the registration certificate of the device (rated power has smaller value).
The number of channels on the autoradio tape recorder can be both two, and four, for connection of the corresponding number of loudspeakers.
Connection of the autoradio tape recorder
Connection of the autoradio tape recorder can strongly affect a choice of this or that model. In the majority of modern autoradio tape recorders for connection to the power supply and the speaker system the ISO connector is used. It represents the socket in which one part the wires going to food in the second – to columns are collected. In cars of the last years of release connection of the autoradio tape recorder is calculated on the ISO connector therefore problems should not arise. If in your car there is no ISO connector, and in the chosen autoradio tape recorder only such type of connection, or on the contrary, it is possible to buy the ISO socket separately and to part wires.
On sale there are also models of autoradio tape recorders which connection is carried out by means of the soldering. Not the most convenient type of connection taking into account that in the future should be chosen other autoradio tape recorder.
On the back panel there is a socket for connection of the external . Are not equipped with the built-in antennas of the autoradio tape recorder therefore for operation of the tuner you need this socket.
Additional sockets of the autoradio tape recorder
Choosing the autoradio tape recorder pay attention to additional sockets on the back panel. First of all can the socket under a CD changer is required. Indispensable condition: the autoradio tape recorder and a changer chosen by you have to be from one manufacturing firm.
Linear inputs and outputs of the autoradio tape recorder
Linear entrances and exits are intended for expansion of the audio system. Therefore choosing the autoradio tape recorder, pay attention to their existence and their quantity, especially if connection of the additional amplifier is planned.
Linear exits are used for connection of the external amplifier. On exits the signal from a preamplifier is given, passing the built-in amplifier. Sockets of linear exits are in most cases executed in the form of RCA "tulips". Less often the exits connected via the ISO connector therefore, choosing the autoradio tape recorder meet, consider this subtlety.
It is also possible to connect the crossover or an equalizer to a linear exit.
If you choose to the autoradio tape recorder from the cheapest, linear exits can be absent or there will be only one linear exit (on lobbies or rear columns) that will give the chance to operate only one of couples of columns.
Autoradio tape recorder panel
The autoradio tape recorder panel can also affect what model to choose. Mainly due to convenience of use and design.
Often the choice costs between autoradio tape recorders, similar on technical characteristics, but thus with the different panel. Inconvenient small buttons will spoil impression of any equipment. Producers independently think over ergonomics but what to choose, depends on your personal feelings – try to press all upon purchase. Illumination of the display, its color and brightness is also important – at night it can blind. Therefore choosing the autoradio tape recorder with bright illumination displya, control of intensity of its luminescence will be very useful function.
For safety of the panel of autoradio tape recorders do removable. To avoid troubles upon purchase, it is recommended to check latches of removable mechanisms of the chosen autoradio tape recorder (marriage cases are not excluded). In expensive models the forward panel disappears, turning governing bodies inside.
Autoradio tape recorder equalizer
The equalizer is traditionally used for control of a sound. The number of these settings differs depending on the autoradio tape recorder chosen by you.
In autoradio tape recorders the three-lane equalizer allowing to make settings of low, average and high frequencies most often meets. In more expensive professional it is possible to meet a seven-band equalizer. But choosing such autoradio tape recorder you have to own a certain knowledge in this area, differently the equalizer will only complicate management.
For simplification the preset modes with the exposed values of settings of an equalizer are management in autoradio tape recorders.
Also function of a tonkompensation which increases high and low frequencies with a small loudness is useful.
Autoradio tape recorder tuner
Any autoradio tape recorder does not do without FM/AM tuner. Despite the general similarity tuners in each model of the autoradio tape recorder have the features.
The main thing for the radio receiver – availability of full range of necessary frequencies. In most cases reception of FM waves in the range from 80 to 110mgts suffices. Quantity of cells of memory for frequencies of radio waves on each autoradio tape recorder a miscellaneous, but always the sufficient.
The tuner already in the majority of models is digital and function of automatic search of waves is available. That it is necessary to check, choosing the autoradio tape recorder – sensitivity of the tuner. Function of change of sensitivity of the receiver, and also the stereo switch / mono also vliyashchy on quality of reception of a signal will be useful.
Also in autoradio tape recorders the RDS function can be applied to the tuner. It displays information transferred by radio station. Function could be useful, but unfortunately, the few from ours radio station conduct such broadcasting.
Coming into shop, eyes run up from a set of the presented autoradio tape recorders, it is necessary to choose among the proved producers. Such companies as Sony, Pioneer, Alpine, Clarion, Kenwood, Blaupunkt specialize in area of autoradio tape recorders. Among models of these producers you to choose the most suitable autoradio tape recorder it will be also difficult. But, at least, it is possible to be sure that the equipment will give out a qualitative sound and will serve long enough.
Successful to you choice and pleasant music on the way!
