Crystal-clear digital radio
Love listening to local radio? The JVC Arsenal KD-AHD79 CD receiver lets you tap into the wicked digital sound of HD Radio™. When you tune into a participating AM or FM station, you'll really notice the difference in fidelity and reception, plus you can check out the alternate programming offered by many stations. And here's another cool feature — you can adjust this receiver's variable-color display to match your dash lighting. You can even set one color for the main display, and pick another for the buttons and controls.
Tag the tunes you like
First, plug your iPod or iPhone® into the handy front-panel USB slot. Now, get ready to fly through your songs and playlists with the KD-HDR70's controls. You can also switch control to the iPod itself for all those DJs in the back seat. All song and artist info will show up on the receiver's 2-line display.
Once your iPod's connected, you can take advantage of the tagging feature — just "tag" a song you're hearing on an HD Radio station, and you'll be prompted to buy it from the iTunes® store the next time you connect your iPod to the computer.
iPod 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.
It all starts with the sound
You'll get plenty of clean volume without distortion from the muscular built-in amplifier, and you can dial in the perfect tone for your vehicle using the flexible 3-band parametric EQ.
Play all your music
This versatile stereo will handle all your CDs and recordable discs, as well as discs or or thumb drives you've loaded with MP3 and WMA files. With two auxiliary inputs, you can connect a satellite radio dock semi-permanently to the rear input, while you use the front input to plug in a game console or other audio source.
Building a system?
Three sets of high-powered 5-volt preamp outputs send a super-clean signal to your outboard amps. The subwoofer output features a selectable low-pass filter, and you can use the sub level control to add just the right amount of bass. The KD-AHD79 also works with JVC's Bluetooth® adapter so you can conduct phone conversations while both hands stay on the wheel.
Want to keep your steering wheel controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this JVC stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the JVC, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.
