IĀ“ll move from germany back to the states pretty soon and IĀ“d like to know if I can keep my german headunit ( JVC KD MX 3000R). Someone has told me that the frequencies for the radio reception are different. I customized the headunit with faceplate in the sunvisor and different illumination and have become very attached to it. So if thereĀ“s a way to use it in the states that would be great. Your help on this one is greatly apprechiated.

yes and no.

i been there few months ago , and ended up buying a deck in the US.

the freq from euro will actually work in the US (not the other way around).
But there is a different issue that i found out recently.
Called pre emphasis.

do a search on pre emphasis on the net to learn more about it.
bottom line , you might hear lower quality for the high notes . Might not be big issue.
hard to tell.
