Pros

Detachable faceplate drastically reduces likelihood of unit theft or vehicle break-in - disengages quickly at the user's convenience

1 agrees

Stripped-down feature set is well-suited to the sub-$100 price point - provides decent capabilities with suitable sound quality amongst auxiliary and CD material

1 agrees

Auxiliary input is a major selling point - allows users to connect CD players and portable media devices via 1/8" stereo mini jack

1 agrees

Preamp output enables high-quality external connectivity - excellent feature for users hoping to add a subwoofer or other type of additional speaker

Cons

Manual radio tuner is a surprising and ultimately disappointing feature - analog knob-based control is at odds with all other digital features

1 agrees

AM/FM radio tuning is inconsistent - playback quality may be low-quality and sporadic in nature regardless of vehicle antenna and proximity to station

1 agrees

Radio doesn't incorporate preset capabilities - puts unit at a severe disadvantage compared to similar models from Supersonic and Pyle

The XD5125 is a lower-end in-dash receiver from car audio manufacturer Dual. It supports 100 W of total output power, distributed among four channels. To the XD5120's standard AM/FM/CD feature set, the XD5125 adds DVD playback and extra connectivity in the form of an AUX input and 1-pair preamp output. Other features include a bass boost option, and an anti-shock mechanism which minimizes CD skipping. Unlike the XD5110 and 5120, the XD5125 features a detachable faceplate. But like the lower-end models, the XD5125 lacks many features common in today's in-dash receivers, like USB connectivity and support for iPods and satellite radio. It is no longer manufactured by Dual.
