Our take on the Valor ITS-700W

by Matt Holliday
Valor

DVD receivers: They're not just for movies

DVD receivers add a new level of entertainment to your vehicle. You can watch a movie on the screen when you're parked on a Saturday night, or play a DVD through your rear seat video setup on the road. Touchscreen receivers allow you to breeze through menus with the tip of your finger. Most DVD receivers feature a USB input for audio from your iPod, and the ability to add an adapter that allows video to display on the screen. Some receivers even offer connections for a center speaker and a subwoofer, so you can build a full-fledged theater in your car, just like at home.

The Valor ITS-700W DVD receiver brings DVD movies to your vehicle at a great price. Your movies come through bright and clear on the motorized, 7" LCD screen when you're parked, and you can also use the touchscreen to scroll through menus. On the go, the ITS-700W will play all your CDs, including your recordable discs — you can even load a DVD with MP3 and WMA files for days of music from a single disc.

The ITS-700W includes an audio input for adding a portable music player or other music source. You can use the receiver's video outputs to connect rear seat video screens, and keep your passengers entertained while you drive. A built-in Dolby® Digital stereo processor makes your movie soundtracks sound great, and you can hook up an amplifier and subwoofers to the preamp outputs to add movie-theater style punch to your system.

Note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver or its optional iPod adapter.
