You've got options

Boss packs some pretty cool features into their 752UAB CD receiver. Not everyone gets their music from CDs, so they've included a front-panel auxiliary input and a USB port. You can plug your favorite device into the aux in, or plug a thumb drive loaded with music into the USB port. You can even play music from select Android™ phones through the USB input (USB port not compatible with iPod® or iPhone®).

Fold down the front face and you can slide in your favorite CDs, even discs burned with MP3 files. And you'll also find an SD™ card slot behind the face too, so you can slip in a card loaded with MP3 files and enjoy the music whenever you want. Finding songs on your media is easy, thanks to an alphabetic directory search feature. 

And Bluetooth® too

Boss sweetens the deal with built-in Bluetooth. You can answer a phone call with the push of a button, and talk as if your caller is sitting next to you, freeing up your hands and letting you concentrate on the drive. And the 752UAB supports Bluetooth audio streaming, so you can stream music wirelessly from compatible devices to the receiver, with basic control functions like "play" or "pause."

    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.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth Technology: The Boss 752UAB CD receiver is equipped with built-in Bluetooth, providing hands-free communication and audio streaming for added convenience and safety in the vehicle.

    Pairing: Before using the unit's Bluetooth functions, you must pair your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone or audio device to the 752UAB. Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some mobile devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Boss 752UAB.

    Hands-Free Communication (w/ Integrated Mic): The Boss 752UAB allows for wireless communication between the head unit and your Bluetooth enabled cell-phone. The head unit will display the caller's information and an audible ring tone will be heard through your vehicle's speaker during an incoming call. You can manually answer or end a call through the head unit's front-panel controls. The 752UAB allows you to carry on the phone conversation using the head unit's integrated microphone and your car audio speakers. Your music will mute automatically during a call. You will still need to use the mobile phone to dial a number (there is no phonebook transfer).

    Wireless Audio Streaming: The Boss 752UAB also allows you to play back stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth enabled phone, PDA, or personal music player using a Bluetooth connection. You can control basic music playback functions (Play/Pause) of from the 752UAB. Advance music navigation and song/artist information will still need to be handled through the Bluetooth mobile device. This unit does not display song/artist information from Bluetooth audio devices.

    Boss Audio Radio Stream App (for Android): The Boss Audio Radio Stream app lets you wirelessly control the 752UAB in-dash CD receiver from your Bluetooth-paired Android (OS 2.2+) smartphone. You are also able to stream your compatible Bluetooth-paired Android smartphone's music library to the 752UAB head unit. Now you can control your Android smartphone's music library and all the Boss receiver sources right from your Android device conveniently and safely through the free Boss Audio Radio Stream app (available at Google Play). From the app on your Android smartphone you can -

    • select between sources that are available on the Boss 752UAB receiver
    • turn the 752UAB receiver's volume up or down
    • seek and select available radio stations on the 752UAB's built-in AM/FM tuner
    • control playback and search functions for the 752UAB's built-in CD player, a connected USB device, or inserted SD memory card
    • adjust audio & EQ settings on the Boss head unit
    • view the Boss CD receiver's clock display

    CD/USB/SD/Aux Playback

    Disc Compatibility: The Boss 752UAB features a single disc player that will playback CD-Audio and finalized CD-R/RW audio discs. The unit supports playback of MP3 music files recorded onto CD-R/RW discs.

    SD-Card Slot: The Boss CD receiver features a hidden SD-card slot located behind the unit's fold-down faceplate. The 752UAB supports playback of MP3 music files loaded onto a SD/SDHC memory card.

    USB Port: The 752UAB is equipped with a front-panel USB (type-A) port for connection of a USB mass storage class device; such as your Android smartphone (Froyo/Gingerbread OS only), digital audio player, or thumbdrive. The unit supports playback of MP3 music files loaded onto a compatible USB msc device. USB portable devices that can be charged via USB will be charged when plugged into the CD receiver's USB port (0.5A), and the vehicle's ignition switch is set to ACC or On.

    Note: The unit's USB port is not compatible with Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad.

    Aux Input: The CD receiver is fitted with a front-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input for connection of any portable audio player with a 3.5mm headphone output.

    Directory Search: You can search for music files on a CD, USB device, or SD card by track number or alphabetically. You can enter the track number or the first 3 letters of a music file to begin song playback.

    Intro Scan: During music playback, you can play the first 10 seconds of each track or file.

    Repeat/Random: The 752UAB offers Repeat Track and Random All modes.

    On/Off Eject: A CD, USB device, or SD-card can be inserted or ejected with the power off. When a CD, USB device, or SD-card is inserted with the power off, the unit will automatically power up and begin playback.

    Auto Reload: If an ejected disc is not removed within 10 seconds, the disc is automatically inserted again into the loading slot to protect it from dust.

    Audio & Tuner Section

    60W (Peak) x 4Ch Amp: The Boss 752UAB CD receiver employs a 60W (peak) x 4ch amplifier.

    2V/4Ch RCA Outputs: The Boss 752UAB is fitted with front & rear 2-volt RCA outputs to connect an external amplifier.

    EQ Presets: You can choose between 4 preset modes - Pop, Rock, Classic, Flat, or Off.

    Bass & Treble: In addition to the EQ Presets, the 752UAB offers independent Bass & Treble control.

    Loudness: This function enhances low and high frequencies to make the sound clearer at lower volumes.

    Programmable Turn-On Volume: You can set the head unit to turn-on to a pre-defined volume level (0-45) every time you power up the radio.

    Key Beep: The in-dash head unit provides an audible beep to confirm button operation. This function can be turned On or Off.

    RDS AM/FM Tuner: The Boss 752UAB features a built-in RDS AM/FM tuner. The Radio Data System (RDS) feature displays radio broadcast information such as artist & track information when listening to compatible AM/FM stations. The 752UAB features 3 FM banks and 2 AM bank for storing presets (automatically or manually). You can store 6 presets for each AM/FM bank giving you a total of 18 FM presets and 12 AM presets (total of 30). The Scan function will play the first five seconds of each station, until you find a station you like. Local seek tuning lets you tune in only those radio stations with sufficiently strong signals for good reception. You can also switch between Stereo/Mono modes for better reception.

    Note: You can set the built-in AM/FM tuner between US standard and European tuning spacing.

    Display & Remote Features

    Detachable Fold-Down Faceplate: The Boss 752UAB features a manual fold-down faceplate with a single-line alphanumeric-text display. The 752UAB's's face-plate is detachable to deter theft. A zippered, padded soft face case (142DFC1X, sold separately) can be purchased to protect the face when removed.

    Note: The fold-down faceplate needs approximately 1.625" of clearance to open.

    IR Remote: The Boss 752UAB includes a 30-button IR remote control for wireless operation of the CD receiver. The remote does not allow you to answer/end Bluetooth phone calls.

    Warranty

    This CD receiver installed very easily into my 1999 Ford F250 Crew Cab truck. The dash adapter kit fits nicely, the CD receiver is very stylish looking, and the sound quality is excellent. The instructions were very clear and thorough and the total installation time was approx one hour.

    Pros: Sound quality, good looks

    Cons: Some of the controls are not intuitive

    Great stereo for the money. Easy install and I had one question on install and Crutchfield tech support took care of quickly. I replaced an aftermarket Pioneer head unit that was way more expensive and a lot less features.

    Cons: User manual is not very good.

    Initially I wasn't going to get this radio because I'm not familiar with the brand but after purchasing it and installing it, I was more than happy with my purchase!

    Pros: Bluetooth sound quality is the best I'll say out of all the features...easy navigation once you get use to it even if you didn't read the manual.

    Cons: Always gotta reconnect once I get back in the car or if my girlfriend phone was connected.

    Great replacement unit for my truck. Sound is fantastic and the display is nice. Paired with my phone without any issue. The only drawback I have, is the instructions are not always clear. Not enough of a issue to take away a star....

    Pros: Good sound, BT paired with iPhone first time.

    Cons: Instructions not always clear.

    More than I was expecting for the price. Beautiful display and easy to use most features. It arrived exactly when Crutchfield said it would and in perfect condition.

    Pros: Installation and wiring instructions were perfectly written, it couldn't have been easier. Looks great when installed in the vehicle.

    Cons: The only con that I can think of is the owners/users manual. Very poorly written and/or translated. It leaves you guessing about how to use a lot of the functions. The manual should be re-written or proof-read by someone whose first language is English

    I bought this and got exactly what I expected. A very decent radio for an extremely good price. I have it hooked up to 4 brand new speakers as well as a sound ordinance subwoofer. The bluetooth works nicely as well as the auxiliary input. I havent used the USB or memory nor do I plan to.

    Pros: extremely well priced. Everything works as expected.

    Cons: there's not really any cons. As long as you are expecting inexpensive radio. Not that it is of poor quality at all. It's just not a blaupunkt

    This is a great stereo for the price. Unfortunately it is all that I can afford. But it was really easy to install. Well, as it is the only car stereo I have installed I can only really say that it was easier to install than I expected! The sound quality is not as great as I expected, although that may be due to the speakers I was able to afford. Also, it took me forever to figure out how to change the start-up volume. Press the biggest button for at least 2 seconds and the first menu setting is the start-up volume. This will change the default volume that it always goes to when you turn on the car.

    Pros: Easy to install Great with Bluetooth! It has a remote! Not sure what it's for, but it has one.

    Cons: Not the best sound quality Weird to put the CD in behind a face plate Really cryptic and short owner's manual which doesn't even include all of the instructions

    Pros: USB port, SD card slot, Bluetooth.

    Cons: The Bluetooth phone feature is very poor quality in the microphone side. People say they can't hear me really well. CD player skips at high volume. Poor radio reception. Stations that I had no issues with on my stock unit will barely come in now.

    Confusing info regarding bluetooth antenna

    Freaking awesome stereo for the price!

    When I was first looking into getting a stereo, I was little conflicted with what I should get. A lot of people said go with Kenwood. To be quite honest, I wasn't really convinced with Kenwood. You're paying for the brand and cool flashing colors than the actual quality of the stereo. Bosh surprised me with the quality of sound and accessibility of options. This bosch stereo didn't just amplify my sound, it kicked my old stereo's ass. Definitely recommend buying it.

    Pros: The installation kit it comes with was super nice! The installation process was easy. Super easy. The wiring diagram shows you what goes to what and the wiring harness the kit comes with is super nice! It connects to the old wiring harness in your vehicle.

    Cons: The settings for the volume when you turn your car on are nonexistent as far as I'm concerned. Your volume is set at a certain volume and you can't change or adjust the settings. Other than that, it's tight!

    The radio performs its functions competently, but is not designed well in several areas. When I installed it, I noticed that when the radio was not on, the clock did not display. My wife does not use it constantly, but would like to see the clock, as she did on the factory radio. You can actually see the figures if there is enough light, but they are not lit as they would be in the factory radio, or on my aftermarket unit. I called support about this, and the tech said this was a software issue that was being addressed, and to call back in a couple months at which time he would e-mail me a software update to load. After several months I sent them an e-mail, but never got a response. I called and waited forever, but was given the option of leaving my number for a call-back. They never called. Finally I sent another e-mail, and was told that if there were a software update the unit would need to be returned, but that they did not plan to update anything. So she is stuck with no clock. Other features are poor; for example, to put a CD in the unit, you need to drop the front down. Once you put a CD in the unit, you cannot use the radio without removing it; there is no mode or function switch. I like to leave a disk in mine so I can go back and forth when I don't want to listen to the radio, I am between stations, or whatever. I do not want to have to have a CD holder and fumble around with dropping the front and loading it every time. Price is good but features are not.

    Pros: Performs basic functions well

    Cons: No clock unless the radio is on, and even then you need to toggle the display. Drop-down door for loading CD's. Will not play the radio if CD is in the unit. Terrible customer support.

    Bought this unit because of the Bluetooth connectivity. BT works awesome. I like the fact that I can get sufficient volume when listening to BT Media unlike other receivers.

    Pros: Good value for the price. Displays traffic info. Built-in microphone for phone conversations.

    Cons: Display is very dim. Hard to see in sunlight.

    The unit looks nice. But it just about ends there for me. The button presses have a cheap sound and feel. There is no treble so the sound is muffled. The bass is hurting too. Worst thing is that during the installation I had trouble receiving radio stations. I had to jiggle the antenna jack to get it to receive. After about 1 day in the car, the signal was lost again. I'm going to consider this a defect and will be returning the unit and buying something better for a bit more money.

    Pros: Features like Bluetooth, SD card slot, USB, auxiliary input, remote control, and anti-theft removable face.

    Cons: Very cheap feel, poor sound, defective antenna jack.

    Definitely the biggest bang for your buck, not a complaint with the product nor assistance when I called looking for guidance. Doesn't have the "made in China" feel I expected. Built sturdy. Once again a great buy through crutchfield.

    Cons: None

    I don't every write reviews, but I needed to in this case. I bought the deck for the Bluetooth media streaming functions and they work flawlessly. I've never had an easier time installing a stereo, Crutchfield knows exactly what is needed in order to install the stereo, and they provide you with everything you need to know to install it. Good work Crutchfield, I will recommend your company.

    Pros: Ease to install Functions perfectly Great product for the price

    Cons: Somewhat bland design

    Dissatisfied with the unit and am returning. Poor reception and the clock will not keep time. Also doesn't appear to be a way to toggle the clock on, even if it did work. The display isn't the easiest to see either.

    The unit was trouble from the jump! You truly get what you pay for! Price was good but this units clock doesn't keep the correct time! Radio is ok unit recognizes the USB & SD card but plays them sometimes & the other times it displays error 2 I have no idea what that means and the manual is not very detailed and doesn't have troubleshooting! The CD skips at the end of most songs! The USB /SD card & CD all were new and plays just find in my other cars! This unit is a nightmare I'm going to buy a new unit like I should have done from the start!

    UPDATED 1/21/14: I want to thank you for your help I formatted the USB drive and it now works just fine. I noticed you mentioned not to use an SD or USB drive over 16GB well funny thing is that the 16GB USB drive was the only USB drive that would work till you told me about formatting them because I was trying to use the 8GB USB drives at first & would always get that error 2 message when I didn't get it on the 16GB drive. I feel a lot better now about buying the Boss now. I figured out how to set the time you have to hit clk on the remote & use the - or the + to set the time. I don't know why this isn't mentioned in the owners manual but I'm glad that the Crutchfield Tech team was there to explain & help me out.

    Pros: Good price and sales pitch works well on paper!

    Cons: Clock doesn't keep the right time and had to get too. Manual is not very detailed for this unit! USB/SD Cards plays sometimes other times it displays error 2 I don't know what that means and there isn't a troubleshooting page in the manual! Can't find songs CD skips threw songs put it in my other cars the CD USB & SD card all works fine!

    It does what it says it will do.

    It's ok. It does what it says it will do. The Bluetooth was what I was looking for, and that works. Good price for the component with a bluetooth option. However... moving through music files on the SD card is nearly impossible. It's a linear progression, period, you can't skip through folders. So plan on pressing the forward button a lot to advance through your collection. The display is always blue and is always at a predetermined brightness. I see no way to change either. Also, I had inquired if this console would work with the steering wheel controls, and I was told it would... it doesn't. So, bottom line, if you're deadset on having bluetooth, like I was, then the trade off for losing the DVD player, steering wheel controls, and XM radio is worth it in my '06 Honda Pilot. The price is good for what it does, just don't expect anything fancy.

    Pros: Works as described

    Cons: Not as intuitive as I would have hoped.

    Considering the low price on this car stereo this is a great buy. It does everything it is supposed to do, it was easy to install with Crutchfield's excellent customer support and produces great sound. Plus, the Bluetooth capability rocks... The look of the unit is very sleek. I don't see why you would have spent twice the money for the same features in a product of a more well-known brand. I would recommend this product to anyone.

    This is a great in-dash receiver. Installation was a breeze with the custom kit. Sounds great, all features work fine and it dresses up the dash on my van. I highly recommend for a good bargain that works fine.

    Nice cd reciever overall, love the aux input and the fact it has a detachable face. Sd card slot and bluetooth mic built in. Great sound... not just for the price, good sound period. Got it from Crutchfield at a great price with discounted install gear. Saving up for speakers to go with it. Cust svc answered all my questions thoroughly. With the price and value I got from Crutchfield, why would I buy one anywhere else?

    Pros: nice sound, detachable face, bluetooth mic, sturdy unit

    Crutchfield said it would fit. It actually doesn't fit. It doesn't fit in the mount kit that Crutchfield sent. Technical support said they didn't know it until I found out. Crutchfield didn't even check if the stereo fits in the kit and car properly and just keep selling the same product with wrong information. If you don't want to waste your time to figure out how it fits in your car, don't buy from Crutchfield. They just don't know if the stereo fits in your car.

    Pros: Nothing

    Cons: Doesn't fit in my car

    This is the 2nd Boss radio Crutchfield has sent me and its just like the first. FM radio reception is horrible. It barely pulls in any FM channels. (no there is not a problem with my antenna or reception in my area) The sound quality is tinny at best with no individual treble or bass adjustments. The clock doesn't keep accurate time. (have to keep adjusting it) This is my fault for trying to cheap out and by a budget radio. Never again!

    Pros: It does have usb and SD card readers as well as Bluetooth for phone and cd player. For the price, cant beat that

    Cons: Good luck trying to find just that one single song you want to hear on your usb or SD card which you will be listening to frequently because your fm radio doesn't work haha. With out the remote just to see what time it is you have to go into the menu and push buttons several times. Not a driving friendly kind of radio.
