Fold-down detachable face

Axxera's AXD130 CD receiver combines a sleek fold-down face design with some nice options to keep you entertained. You won't have any trouble taking charge when you're behind the wheel, thanks to the receiver's easy-to-use buttons and large control knob. Plus, you can detach the fold-down face when you're parking on the bad side of town.

USB and auxiliary inputs

If you get most of your music from sources other than CDs, the AXD130 features front-panel USB and auxiliary inputs. You can enjoy music by using the USB input for a thumb drive (sorry, no iPod® controls), or by plugging your satellite radio, smartphone, or any other audio devices into the aux input.

This receiver also offers a 3-band equalizer for adjusting the tone to match your taste, while a set of preamp outputs lets you add a powered sub to fill out your sound. Axxera includes a remote control so your back seat passengers can change songs without harrassing the driver.

    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.

    Disc/USB Playback

    CD Compatibility: The Axxera AXD130 head unit supports CD-Audio, CD-Text, CD-R, and CD-RW disc playback. The head unit supports playback of MP3/WMA music files recorded onto CD-R and CD-RW discs.

    USB Port: The Axxera AXD130 is equipped with front-panel USB (type-A) which enables connection of a portable USB mass-storage class (MSC) device; such as your Android smartphone, portable digital audio player, or USB thumbdrive. The head unit supports playback of MP3/WMA  music files stored on a compatible USB mass storage device. The unit's USB port will also charge (max. 0.5A) your USB devices during connection.

    Note: The unit's USB port is not iPod/iPhone compatible.

    Playback Features: The AXD130 offers playback features such as Repeat, Random and Intro scan.

    • Repeat: You can repeat a single track, a specific folder, or an entire disc.
    • Random: You can shuffle the playback order of all your songs or only the songs in a specific folder.
    • Intro Scan: You can scan the first 10 seconds of each track or the first 10 seconds of each track in a folder.

    File/Folder Search: This search function allows navigation through compressed music files' folders to find a specific file or for playback.

    Off Insert/Eject: A CD disc can be inserted or ejected with the power off. When a disc is inserted with the power off, the unit will automatically power up and begin playback.

    Auto-Reload: If a disc is ejected and not removed within 10 seconds, the unit will reload the disc.

    Radio & Aux Functions

    AM/FM Tuner: The Axxera AXD130 features a built-in AM/FM tuner with manual, seek, and preset tuning. You can store up to 18 FM station presets and 12 AM station presets.

    Auxiliary Input: The AXD130 is fitted with a front-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input for connecting an external portable audio device with a headphone output.

    Audio Section

    MOSFET Amplifier: The Axxera AXD130 is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit.

    CEA2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the AXD130 are compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers. The power output specs for the AXD130 are as follows:

    • CEA2006 Specs: 18 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • Maximum Power Output: 60 watts x 4 channels (240 watts total)

    Switchable Preamp Outputs: The Axxera AXD130 is equipped with a set of 2-Volt preamp outputs (R/Sub). The R/Sub preamp output can be switched between a rear-channel full-range output or a non-fading subwoofer preamp output.

    Subwoofer Control: When the subwoofer preamp output is activated, you can adjust the output level (0-12) of the sub preamp output. You can also set the low-pass crossover to 80, 120, 160Hz, or Through (full-range).

    Equalizer: The Axxera CD Receiver features the following preset EQ curves (Flat, Pop, Jazz, Classic, Beat, Rock, or User) to customize your music listening.  The User mode activates a 3-Band EQ which lets you adjust Bass, Midrange, and Treble manually from -6 to +6. EQ settings are stored for each source. 

    Loudness: The Loudness function enhances the bass & treble frequencies at low volumes.

    Source Volume Level: The Source Volume Level control allows a gain adjustment for each audio source (Tuner, CD, Aux and USB). You can set the source volume level (+/-6dB) for each mode, depending on the relative volume of each audio source.

    Display Features

    Detachable Fold-Down Face: The Axxera AXD130 features a manual fold-down face-plate. The head unit's face-plate is detachable to deter theft. A hard-plastic face-case is provided. An optional soft face case (142DFC1X, sold separately) can also be purchased for this unit.

    Note: The head unit needs 1.75" of clearance in front of it for the face-plate to fold down.

    Single Line Display: The AXD130 features a a single line, 12-character display with a black background and white text.

    Remote Control

    Wireless Remote Control: The AXD130 comes supplied with an 18-button IR wireless remote control which provides complete control of the Axxera CD Receiver.

    The product was exactly as advertized. I am rebuilding a Wrangler which will spend much of its life with the top off. I wanted an economical receiver in the event of vandalism or water damage. I also wanted the ability to use my MP3 player and utilize my CDs as well. So far... so good.

    Pros: Easy to install and reasonably priced.

    Cons: The lights on the faceplate are a bit distracting when night driving... they are brighter than the rest of my dash cluster.

    I purchased this stereo to replace a Blaupunkt unit which never lived up to my expectations and have been pleasantly surprised. The sound quality is excellent much better than the previous unit even though this is a low frills unit.Installation was a breeze and it is a lot nicer overall quality wise than I expected for a low priced stereo.

    Pros: Great sound,simple to operateand looks great also

    I did the research for affordable, feature packed, reliable, with good sound quality and loudness. There is no direct answer. But this model has met all of my expectations and then some. It was a gift for a special audiophile in my life and we have both been very pleased with all it has given. And buying from Crutchfield (for the lightly seasoned self installer) was the absolute best way to go.

    Pros: affordable, feature packed, reliable, with good sound quality and loudness, easy to install.

    Cons: Cannot be controlled by a Zune (XD i know, i know). No dimmer for the display lighting.

    I installed the unit with a long time friend. We both knew what we were doing and had the unit running after about 2 hours of work. One time while playing music through the aux input, the left side speakers stopped working, and the right side is extremely soft! Radio input still functions through all of the speakers, but it is infuriating to not have a fully functioning system! I want to exchange the unit for another model or just return it. At this point, I just want to get rid of it...

    Pros: worked well for 3 or so months enjoy the hidden CD input model was easy to install

    Cons: Stopped working as well as it should!

    Very Happy!

    Good sounding unit for a great price. I put this in a 20-year-old Dodge truck that we're fixing up for one of the kids. The installation was quick and easy, and it's a big plus to have the front aux input and USB connection.

    Pros: Good quality at a good price Nice features (3 FM, 2 AM, presets, USB, etc.)

    Cons: Lighting not dimmable

    I installed for my 70 year old mother. It was easy for her to understand and use. It was a breeze to install...though her car caused some difficulties

    Pros: Easy to use. Easy to Install.

    Cons: When tuning to non-preset channels, it's a little bit of a pain. No fast way to change channels except to quickly repeat hitting the tune button.

    Great radio, but!

    Installed into a 1989 Nissan 240sx hatchback. Existing radio connectors did not fit, had to splice a dozen wires to the new radio. Antenna cable had to be adapted to fit. Unit size fit ok, molding around face plate had to be removed, later adapted to fit. Was not an easy install, but well worth the trouble

    Pros: Sound quality

    Cons: Install problems

    This radio has a "very" small plastic button in the upper left hand corner to drop down the front plate to expose the CD slot!!! This is not clear on the website picture or description. If you want to play a CD you must first expose the slot, insert the CD and then close the front plate before you can access the CD controls! Getting the front plate off for security purposes is also difficult to accomplish. We never installed the product because these two features made the radio unacceptable to us!

    The only thing I have problems with is in the AM mode, seems like there is a lot of crossover (stations overlapping each other). Unable to pick up some stations that my manufacturer's radio could. But for the money it is a real good deal. Took a little time getting used to where the CD goes. Still playing with it to see what else it can do. For directions on using the unit Google the model number for the manual.

    Pros: Great unit for the price

    Cons: Like another reviewer said, the AM band is not the best.

    For a cheap unit, it does exactly what I need it to do. The sound quality is not great (but that also may be a function of my aging speakers), and it's functions are pretty minimal, but that's all I needed and the price was right! Installation was not that bad also - I figured it out myself with a little guidance from Dad and no experience doing this sort of thing in the past.

    Pros: Price, Functions were exactly what I wanted (CD, Aux cable, radio)

    Cons: Display is really bright and I haven't figured out if it's possible to dim it yet. Some buttons could be larger (the seek button is not too large, but the mute button is huge).

    First aftermarket radio I replaced in my Nissan. Not bad at all. Didn't hear of the brand axxera til Crutchfield. Settings could be a bit better to navigate. But I need to play with it some more to get used to it. Love the color blue. Overall not bad for what I paid for. Only had it for a few weeks and its grown on me. I hook up my auxiliary to Pandora and go.

    Pros: Does what it's meant to. Sound is pretty good.

    Cons: Settings could be clearer

    Sound is good, easy to use, but display options should include both clock and track #. Also, this is hard to believe, but the panel light is blinding coming through the on/off button. It is very bright, and annoying at night. I will have to paint it with shoe polish or something to dim it. All in all, though, for the money, not bad.

    Pros: Easy to use, not bad sound.

    Cons: Blinding light from on/off button, very bright at night.

    I purchased this item to replace the factory radio for my 1990 Grand Am Ponitac. It was reasonably priced and was the only radio with the USB port and Aux port located in the front. The product is well worth it's money.

    Pros: The brightness, very easy to operate, the USB port charges my iPhone 5 and the radio sounds really well.

    Pros: Low cost and sounds good for two speaker work truck. usb port

    It was a simple install, and added good tunes to the car. FM performance is good, CD and Aux performance excellent, AM performance is marginal. Not a LOT of power, but adequate. The part that my son loves (it is in his car) is the look: It is a very cool looking machine.

    Pros: Excellent value, great look.

    Cons: Might be underpowered in some applications- AM performance is not good.

    I got this car radio/player for it's ability to play from an USB flash drive. It enables me to access 100 albums and audio books from a tiny device. My only complaint is that I can't do a search or view more than a single line of text, so it's necessary to click sequentially through the contents. Because of that limitation, I'm using separate flash drives for different audio book subjects and different types of music. But that still enables me relatively easy access to a lot of entertainment in a small package.

    Pros: Supplies the perfect amount of power and style to the rest of my car. I love it.

    So far, so good!!! For the price, you can't go wrong with it. I know it's not a name brand like kenwood, jvc, pioneer, sony. The reason I picked this Axxera is because it's the only stereo that has USB and aux connection in front for the same exact price as the named brands. Another retailer is charging around a lot for installation and 3 hrs.+ of waiting. Crutchfield, and diy wiring and installation only 60 min. Of your time or maybe less. Like I said, so far so good. I hope this stereo will last for a while......

    Pros: More bang for your buck! Quality sound! Easy diy wiring and install. Can charge devices with USB connection and use the aux at the same time.

    Cons: This Axxera Stereo doesn't display words such as pass lock / disable, enable alarm. My stock or factory radio displays the words if u enable or disable pass lock/alarm.

    I bought this product recently for my very old 2000 Toyota Solara. My current stereo quit working after living for so many years so i decided to buy a new one from crutchfield. I never realized how easy it is to install new stereos. Crutchfield was very helpful in recommending stereos for the car i selected and to their word, it does fit and is very easy to install ourselves. the accessories (harness and plastic tray) they provide with this product and very necessary (especially the electrical harness) that makes installation a breeze. The self tapping screws that comes with this that fastens the factory bracket (already in the car) to the stereo set needs to be 5mm longer. A quick run to an hardware store could take care of that problem. It hardly took me 30 mins to take the old one out, make the electrical harness connections and put the new one in. I love the product so far. I am able to play songs directly from an usb which is a neat feature. Needless to say the cd player and aus input are useful as well. my kid loves the songs i play in it. All in all a very good product. I would highly recommend it.

    Was looking for something with usb, aux and mp3. For the price you can't go wrong. Just dont expect alot of bells and whistles, this is a great radio for a small amount of money. (and I know they say to post a review with-in a few days I felt I would put it through it's paces first, I have now owned this unit for about 2 months)

    Pros: Easy to use, Love that it was blue backlit, usb for playing MP3's, Aux if I every want to use my tablet to listen to music, easy to install

    Cons: very bright blue backlit at night wish they would have had a way to dim the brightness or be able to wire it into the factory harness dimmer.

    This unit is listed as fitting a 1997 Toyota Corolla. Prospective buyers should be aware that it will only fit after cutting into the dashboard to widen the opening and even then the trim ring will not fit.

    Easy to install. A little difficult to navigate through the various menus. Good sound, great reception. No problems with alternator interference as I grounded the chassis based on previous reviews. Lighting is strange as previous reviewers have stated. The on light is too bright and the menu back lighting is too dim. Annoying at night. Looks like a masking tape solution for the brightest lights. Overall a great value.

    Pros: Reception, volume, sound quality.

    Cons: Lighting

    4 months after installation stereo wouldn't turn on! Contact Crutchfield Support. Stated to try reset button. Worked for a day. Next day, wouldn't turn on! Called Axxera support NO HELP WHAT SO EVER! Instead of wasting my time pulling stereo out and sending back, I just bought reliable name brand stereo from Crutchfield.

    Pros: USB on front charged phone while using AUX port to play music on phone

    Cons: NOT RELIABLE!

    USB doesn't work with Apple products (iphone / ipod). You know, the most popular music device in the world. How has no reviewer mentioned this? Huge deal breaker, I'm returning it.

    Pros: Looks just like all the other tron-inspired faceplates.

    Cons: Doesn't work with iphone / ipod and doesn't make an effort to say so explicitly (however, it calls out specifically that the "auxiliary works with iphone and ipod". Dumb. I hate them.

    For the money this deck goes above and beyond, but when it comes to ease of use with the functions it lacks. It is a bit of a headache to navigate through a flash drive on the small single din screen. Sounds great though.

    Pros: Sound quality, and value.

    Cons: Not so easy to navigate through.

    Pros: Easy to install, looks good, operates great, good value

    Cons: Blue lighting on reciever is too bright at night and is very distracting to the driver

    Product works great! Couldn't be happier! The sound quality improved dramatically and I'm still running off stock speakers! It took me 2 hours to install the new radio, and with out the mounting package recommended by Crutchfield the radio would have been pointless! I'm really happy I spent the extra money on the kit. The axxera radio i invested in is on the cheaper side of the spectrum! I was honestly looking for a quick alternative to be able to get a working aux cord in the car... This radio system was probably one of the best and easy investments I've put in the car so far! Shipping was fast! Product made it safe and sound!

    Pros: Bright blue display, Great sound quality, easy to install (make sure you know how to properly solder wires), solid fit, no issues so far, aux cord, USB is pretty handy for charging my phone, and my car became a chick magnet... (Sweet!)

    Cons: None!

    I purchased this radio to replace a factory radio that had failed in my 1995 Dodge Spirit. I am very pleased with the radio and the convenience of aux and USB inputs. The remote is also handy. The display seems plenty bright to me. One change I would make is to provide a time display and scrolling selection display (they are exclusive). The unit is easy to program and use. Sound seems a little tinny to me, but perhaps I need to do some additional adjustments. Fader and balance work well. Excellent radio reception.

    Pros: Versatile I/O and MP3 capabilities. Remote. Good display. Excellent radio reception in AM and FM bands.

    Cons: Additional display options would be welcome, though the provided capabilities are not bad. Sound quality would probably be better on a more-expensive unit.

    Very satisfied overall, lacks brightness control!

    It's a great receiver overall! It gets the job done, and looks alright in the dash. My top reason for buying is to have an 3.5mm Aux connection to my speakers versus using a lousy cassette adapter. My only two complaints is the lack of brightness control. The backlight seems very bright and disruptive when driving at night and during the day the display is hard to see sometimes.

    Pros: Appearance, sound quality, playback features

    Cons: unclear menu options, no control of brightness, display

    A lot of features for a great price. Didn't want to spend too much on an older vehicle so this was a price purchase. Had all the features I was looking for including a clock which displays with radio off. Also included a remote which you don't usually get on a unit under $100.

    Pros: Fold down face, full display, remote

    Cons: Display a little dim

    I purchased this to replace my factory radio, which had quit working a few months ago. This unit was easy to install, the sound is superior to my factory radio and the price was awesome, too. I didn't replace my speakers but when I turned this on, they sounded like I installed new ones. I'm very happy with this purchase.

    Pros: Price and sound.

    Cons: The only thing that would be a con is that with my car we had to file down a tab and it would have been easier if we had a Dremel to do it. But, the instructions had told us that we would have to file it down. Also, there weren't any instructions for using this unit, but I figured it after playing around with it for a while.

    You have to understand that you are not buying a top of the line device. For the money, you can't beat it. Install was pretty straight forward. Wish the antenna adapter was a little better fit. Again though, like I said for the money it's a great deal.

    Very happy with this unit. Wanted something inexpensive for my daily driver, and this fills the bill. Took awhile to figure out the all buttons, and the quick start guide is lacking. Had to DL the manual from their site. However, the sound is excellent, and I like the look of it in my dash.

    Pros: Inexpensive, works great, sounds good.

    Cons: Only con is the lack of info on all the buttons in the quick start guide, there is no manual, have to download it.

    Love the front access USB port and flip down CD face. Cool head unit for the '87 Honda Prelude I installed it in.

    Pros: Easy to install, fitment was excellent, and the features and front access to USB and AUX connections made this a hard deal to pass on for the price.

    Cons: Wish the fron face flip down had a smoother release button.
