JVC's KD-AR7500 — from its versatile audio features, to its stunning, 256-color OEL display screen — is one CD receiver that truly does it all.
The OEL's wide viewing angle ensures that your text is crisp and images are easy to see from all over the car. The motorized, slide-out face even detaches for an extra measure of security when you're away from the vehicle.
JVC's KD-AR7500 offers multi-format playback. Just load a CD-R or CD-RW disc with MP3 or WMA files — up to 10 hours' worth will fit onto a single disc — and enjoy the convenience of an in-dash jukebox. The Arsenal KD-AR7500 can even play tunes back from SD memory cards.
The on-board MOSFET amplifier (20 watts RMS x 4) ensures clean, realistic sound, while the 7-band iEQ (with its 12 preset tone curves) gives you the tools to shape that output to match your music. Your external amps will love the powerful, 5-volt signal they get from the KD-AR7500's three sets of preamp outputs.
JVC's DiAS digital AM/FM tuner delivers powerful radio reception, and you'll enjoy superb sound across the board thanks to the Advanced Multi-bit DAC (digital-to-analog converter). BBE processing restores the punch and dynamic range to your compressed digital music files. Connect the optional SIRIUS satellite radio tuner for more than 120 channels of music and news.
