Smartphone compatibility in your car

A lot of people ask us whether they can use their Android™ device with a new car stereo. With JVC's KD-AR755 CD receiver, the answer is yes. Plug your Android into receiver's USB input and use JVC's Smart Music Control app to access the media you've stored on your Android. You'll enjoy cool features like voice and gesture controls, and voice readout of SMS text messages. Plus, JVC protects this Arsenal Series receiver with a 2-year warranty.

For Apple® fans, simply plug your iPod®, iPhone®, or iPad® into the handy front-panel USB input, and you'll be able to speed through your music library with the receiver's controls. You can also use the receiver to control your Pandora account when your iPhone is plugged in.

Multi-color to the max

Whatever media you're listening too, all song and artist info will appear in bright characters on the receiver's display. And while many receivers offer selectable colors for their display and controls, JVC goes a step further. With the KD-AR755 you can set up to three different color zones on the face — creating thousands of possible color combinations. You can also choose from preset patterns for color changes — a pretty cool way to personalize your car.

JVC Arsenal KD-AR755CD receiver

You can set separate illumination colors in up to three different zone on the receiver's face.

Looking to add on?

Bluetooth® adds some attractive capabilities to your driving experience, including the ability to take calls hands-free and stream music wirelessly from your Bluetooth equipped devices. Add JVC's optional   Bluetooth adapter to the KD-AR755 to get on board with this technology.

If you're building a top-end audio system, you'll find three sets of high-voltage preamp outputs that'll provide a strong, noise-free signal to your outboard amplifiers. You can activate a selectable low-pass filter on the subwoofer outputs, and use the subwoofer level control to dial in the right amount of bass.

Keep your car's steering wheel audio controls

In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) 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 receiver, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls.

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.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

    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.

    Audio Section

    16 Bit D/A Converter: The JVC Arsenal KD-AR755 utilizes a 24-bit digital to analog converter for superior sound quality.

    MOSFET Amplifier: The JVC KD-AR755 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. The power output specs for the KD-AR755 are as follows:

    • Full Bandwidth Power: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20-20kHz, 1% THD)
    • Maximum Output Power: 50 watts x 4 channels (200 total watts)
    Note: When you are using the KD-AR755 with factory speakers (or those rated to less than 50 watts peak), the Amplifier Gain Control can limit the amount of power being sent to those speakers. When the Amp Gain Control is set to "low," the volume control ranges from 0 (minimum) to 30 (maximum). When using speakers rated higher than 50 watts peak, you can set the Amp Gain Control to "high," and the volume control will range from 0 to 50.

    6ch/4.8V Preamp Outputs with Sub Control: The KD-AR755 is equipped with 6ch/4.8V preamp outputs (Front, Rear, Subwoofer). The front and rear preamp outputs allow fader control, while the subwoofer preamp output is non-fading. The head unit's sub preamp output features a low pass crossover and independent volume control. You can set the cutoff frequency of the low-pass filter at 55Hz, 85Hz, or 120Hz. You can adjust the head unit's subwoofer level between -8 and +8 (separate from the main volume level).

    High-Pass Filter (for Front & Rear Speakers): You can activate a variable high-pass filter (100, 120, 150, Hz or Through) for the unit's front & rear channels (speaker- or preamp-level), so low frequency signals are cut off from your system's front & rear speakers.

    Pro EQ: The KD-AR755 is equipped with JVC's Pro EQ. The integrated equalizer offers 12 preset sound modes (Flat, Hard Rock, Jazz, Pop, R&B, Talk, vocal Boost, Bass Boost, Classical, Dance, User 1, or User 2) suitable for the music genre of your choice. The User modes allow you to manually adjust the head unit's 3-band parametric EQ (Frequency, Level, and Q-Factor).

    Pro EQ
    Frequency Level Q
    Bass 60, 80, 100, 200 Hz +/- 12 dB (-6 to +6) 1.0, 1.25, 1.5, 2.0
    Midrange 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.5 kHz +/- 12 dB (-6 to +6) 0.75, 1.0, 1.25
    Treble 10.0, 12.5, 15.0, 17.5 kHz +/- 12 dB (-6 to +6) Fixed
    Note: You can store Pro EQ bass, middle and treble tone settings for each source (CD, AM/FM, Aux, USB, iPod, Pandora/iHeart Radio).

    Sound Enhancements: The head unit provides further sound enhancements for your car audio system.

    • Digital Track Expander: The digital Track Expander utomatically enhances compressed music files and restores the original richness of the recording.
    • Bass Boost: The unit's Bass Boost enhances low bass frequencies.
    • Loud (Loudness): This feature boosts low and high frequencies to produce a well-balanced sound at a low volume level. You can set this feature to High, Low, or Off.
    • Volume Adjust: The input level of each source (other than FM) is adjustable relative to the FM radio volume, so there isn't a significant volume difference when changing sources. Each source is individually adjustable from -5 to +5.

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

    Display Features

    Detachable Face: The JVC Arsenal KD-AR755 features a detachable face to deter theft. No face-case is provided. An optional soft face case (142DFC1X, sold separately) can be purchased for this unit. A face-fixing screw is supplied for making the face non-detachable, if desired.

    3 Zone Variable Color: The head unit's variable color illumination is separated into 3 Zones (Zone 1, Display Zone, and Zone 2). The KD-AR755 offers 29 color presets and custom colors for each of these zones. You can choose one of these color presets or select the ColorFlow mode which scrolls through all 29 color presets. Additionally, there is a User preset, allowing you to individually adjust the intensity of Red, Green, and Blue from 0 to 31; resulting in approximately 30,000 custom color options. You can choose to use the same color for all 3 Zones, or use a different color for each separate Zone.

    • Zone 1: Zone 1 consists of the rotary knob and the following buttons (iPod, Previous/Next Track, Power/Source, Menu, and Back).
    • Display Zone: The Display Zone consists of the LCD, preset buttons, and display button.
    • Zone 2: Zone 2 consists of the USB port and Aux input.

    Lighting Effects + Color Guide: You can select a preset color change pattern/speed for all 3 Zones (Zone 1, Display Zone, and Zone 2). Choose from Spectrum, Groove, Techno, Emotion, Relax, and Night Sweep. When activated, the Color Guide mode changes the display and all button illumination to white when menu settings or music list search are performed.

    Brightness & Dimmer Control: The unit offers a daytime and nighttime brightness setting for the LCD, button, and USB input terminal. You can adjust the brightness level of each zone manually from 0-31. The unit's dimmer control can be set automatically or manually; select "Off" for daytime brightness setting, "On" for nighttime brightness setting, or "Auto" which switches between day and nighttime brightness setting automatically when you turn off/on the headlights (orange/white wire of harness must be connected to headlamp circuit).

    Day & Time: The unit displays a 12-or 24-hour clock, as well as the day (Sun/Mon/Tue/Wed/Thu/Fri/Sat). The day & time can be selected to remain on, even if the head unit is switched off (as long as the vehicle's key is in the accessory or start position).

    Demo Mode: This unit features a Demo mode which can be turned On or Off within the menu.

    Remote-Bluetooth Control

    Wireless Remote Control: The KD-AR755 comes supplied with a wireless remote control (RM-RK52). The remote contains Attenuator, Sound, Source, Tracking, and Volume functions. The remote operates off of a single CR2025 3V Lithium-cell battery (included).

    I have bought 3 JVC radios in 18 months for 3 different vehicles. They are a great value for the money. My 2nd purchase I was dis-appointed because it wouldnt play WAV flles from the front USB port. 3rd radio does and at less than 1/2 the price of my first one and about the same price as my second one. Great value for the money - this is a good buy.

    Pros: 3 different color zones. speakers sound better. plays wav & mp3 from front usb drive. set-up & user functions are better than a lot of other brands. Has great "cool" factor ;)

    Cons: fast forward button is small.

    Only had it a week but so far great. Sound is much better than the stock radio that fried for some reason. Installing it was a breeze following Crutchfield mastersheet. Used the posi connecters for the wiring harness, they worked great.

    Pros: Sound quality, like the 3 zone display color option. All I wanted was a good radio and CD player this more than fits the bill.

    Cons: None yet.

    good product

    I love music, so, of course, one of the first things I replaced in my 2000 Jeep Wrangler was the Head Unit. This one I got for just over $100, and, especially for the price, its been great! We installed it a little over a week ago, and, though it was a bit tricky finding all the settings, it really does give you a lot of options, so you just have to get used to it. The way I see it, I'd rather have to channel through a full menu than not have all the options it offers. I also only have a soundbar- no speakers or amps, subs, etc. yet, and the sound is near perfect, just coming from the roof, even when it gets turned up. I'd definitely recommend this unit to anyone who wants a little more than the basics so far!

    Pros: Easy to install Great Sound- even just out of the soundbar Ready for Amps and Subs Aux, CD, USB, Pandora, iHeartRadio, Bluetooth capable and more options for listening to your music

    Cons: Menu can be tricky at first, but I also didn't read the instruction- just have to play with it for a while- be glad there is so much this unit offers you!

    Works very well

    Great head unit especially for the price. It has tons of features, produces great sound, was an easy install, and plays CD's, USB, Radio, with bluetooth capabilities as well you can add on satellite as well for under 120 I don't know how you beat it really.

    Pros: Tons of features great sound quality super low price with add ons readily available.

    Cons: Have not found a single one!

    Pretty good deck with some short comings

    This deck does not recognize the Android Jelly Bean OS via USB connection. That was the reason I went with this deck in the first place. I do like the preset equalizer profiles. They sound more full and balanced than other manufacturers. The color changing quadrants is another pretty cool. It'd be even better if they changed in conjunction with the rhythm or beat of the music, but maybe someday that will happen. The connections are pretty easy. The 3 pre amp outputs all work. Bottom line is that I would recommend this deck to anyone who likes colorful lights and has an older model Android phone.

    Very happy with unit

    Great upgrade from stock for sure. Had another high-end brand before this in another car, but this one tops it by far.

    Pros: Awesome features, great price, loud and clear

    Cons: none, and none

    Love this cd player. My husband bought this for me and took my old jvc cd player which only was a 2 color. Best buy ever. Thanks so much

    Pros: Very cool cd player with so many colors and things to change. Love it.

    Cons: Demo mode is a little crazy but can be turned off. Other then that have found nothing that I didn't like
