Kenwood 72X TrueX™ CD-ROM Drive

Technical Specifications >

The fastest CD-ROM drive on earth just got faster!

Kenwood's third generation of award-winning TrueX CD-ROM drives, the 72X TrueX CD-ROM Drive, has shattered speed barriers once again, creating the fastest CD-ROM drive on earth. By blending innovation and technology; Kenwood has created the 72X TrueX CD-ROM Drive offering even higher transfer rates at significantly low rotation speeds; thus a FASTER, QUIETER, MORE RELIABLE CD-ROM drive! With transfer rates ranging from 6,750 to 10,800 KB across the entire disc, the Kenwood 72X TrueX CD-ROM Drive is more than 80% faster than the average 50X Max CD-ROM drive available today. The Kenwood 72X TrueX CD-ROM Drives have a rotational speed of 5,100 to 2,700 RPM, which is half the rotational speed of the average 50X Max CD-ROM drive.

Equivalent to a 100X Max drive-- if one existed!*

The Kenwood 72X TrueX™ CD-ROM is made with Zen's TrueX technology and Kenwood's patented 7-Beam pickup, which illuminate multiple tracks simultaneously, read them in parallel, and process the data through a custom ASIC. By reading multiple tracks at once, the 72X TrueX CD-ROM drive actually spins the disc slower than conventional single-beam drives, resulting in extremely precise readability and very quiet operation.

The Kenwood 72X TrueX CD-ROM drive is faster, quieter, and more reliable than the average 50X Max drive. The 72X TrueX CD-ROM drive provides high performance data throughput across the entire disc making it ideal for graphic-intensive applications such as 3D games, multimedia, and other reference content.

Once again your CD-based applications and data get the highest performance possible from the beginning of the disc to the end. Innovative technology powered by Zen, available only from Kenwood.

High transfer rate delivers 6.75MB to 10.8MB/sec. across the entire disc


Lower rotation speeds minimize noise and vibration

Lower rotation speeds enhance precise disc readability

*Based on the estimated average transfer rate since a 100X Max drive is not available.
