Our take on the Axxera AC504BiM

by Dave Delamere
Dual

Why replace your factory radio?

Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.

An affordable workhorse

Axxera's AC504BiM CD receiver blends old-school design with new-world technology. Sporting an extra-large 3.7" LCD display, you get the wireless benefits of Bluetooth®, along with touch-less playback controls courtesy of Axxera's Motion Control. Combine this with convenient front USB and aux inputs, CD playback, a sensitive AM/FM tuner, and solid power, and you've got a budget-friendly powerhouse to replace your factory radio.

With a wave of your hand

Motion Control lets you access basic functions without touching the receiver. Simply swipe your hand up and down for volume adjustments, then move it left or right to select your favorite tracks or radio stations. When you place your hand in front of the sensor above the display, Motion Control mutes the AM/FM radio or pauses your CD, USB, or iPod playback. This feature comes in handy when you're concentrating on the road or pulling up to the drive-thru.

Bluetooth and Pandora®

Axxera included built-in Bluetooth for convenient hands-free calling and wireless audio streaming. The AC504BiM also includes a sensitive outboard microphone, which you install in a good spot in your vehicle for clear conversations.

You don't have to worry which type of phone you have in order to enjoy your Pandora Internet Radio stations. Android® or Blackberry® owners can use the AC504BiM's Bluetooth audio streaming for Pandora control, while iPhone owners will simply plug into the USB input to get your streaming radio fix. You can give a "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" and switch between your favorite stations.

Audio options

You can shape your sound with the AC504BiM's three preset EQ settings. The built-in amp delivers a strong 18 watts RMS per channel to get more volume and musical detail out of your speakers, while the two pairs of RCA preamp outputs let you connect an amp or powered subwoofer for a bigger bass impact.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.
