Kristen P's 1998 Jeep Wrangler
|Kristen likes the great sound and features her new JVC receiver brings to her Jeep Wrangler|
Kristen loves driving her 1998 Jeep Wrangler, but she wasn't too happy about the old factory radio. The addition of a JVC Arsenal KD-AHD69 CD receiver changed all that. Here's some of what Kristen had to say about it.
What are some of the features you like best about the new receiver?
I especially like that I can plug my iPod® into the receiver. And my new receiver has a CD player, which I use a lot too. I also like that when you're listening to music the face plate changes colors, I thought that was really cool.
This JVC receiver has an HD Radio tuner built in. Are you using the HD Radio tuner in the receiver much? What do you like best about listening to stations that broadcast in HD Radio?
The receiver automatically picks up the stations that I listen to that broadcast in HD Radio. I like the sound of HD Radio a lot better — the stations seem to come in more clearly and they sound better through the speakers.
What's the biggest difference you hear, or the features you like best, when you compare your new radio and the old factory radio?
The old radio didn't have a place where you could hook up my iPod or insert a USB drive. I like that I plug my iPod in and listen to my own music instead of being limited to listening to radio. And I like that the new radio actually works, because my old one only worked when I hit a bump in the road!
Anything that surprised you about the new receiver?
I found it interesting that the receiver came with a remote. I didn't think I would use it, but I've actually found it very useful.
