Aiwa introduces its XR-X7, a design-oriented CD component system that offers a wide range of advanced functions. The XR-X7 has a transparent acrylic top-opening CD lid and a curvaceous soft design. The main unit's stand makes it look like it's floating, giving a "light-footed" impression. Users can change the colors of the large, 12-color LCD display to suit their taste. As a final eye-pleasing touch, the entire system comes in a silver finish. But there's brawn with the beauty: the XR-X7 also offers high-quality sounds and easy operation. Its functions include a high-quality amplifier with 40W of powerful output, virtual QSURROUND that provides stereophonic acoustic effects, CD-R/RW playback and a CD optical digital output terminal that allows connection with a MD unit to further enhance the system.
