Overview

Our take on the JVC KD-R330

If you're looking to upgrade the sound in your car without shelling out serious cash, take a good look at this striking JVC. The KD-R330 CD receiver is perfect for a teenager's first car, for a family's second car, or any car with a factory radio that's on its last legs. And you just might have enough left over for a pair of speakers, too.

If you're looking to upgrade the sound in your car without shelling out serious cash, take a good look at this striking JVC. The KD-R330 CD receiver is perfect for a teenager's first car, for a family's second car, or any car with a factory radio that's on its last legs. And you just might have enough left over for a pair of speakers, too.

A serious improvement in sound
First of all, you'll get a lot more power — 20 blazing watts of continuous juice. By comparison, your factory stereo probably struggles to crank out 5-10 watts. More power doesn't just mean you can play louder, though, it elevates definition and accuracy at all frequencies, giving you greater realism in your music.

JVC also packs the KD-R330 with a superior CD deck that'll make your discs sound their best, a sophisticated equalizer for dialing in the perfect sound in your car, and two auxiliary inputs for plugging in your gear. Built-in frequency filters let you tailor the JVC's output so your speakers (and subs, if you got 'em) only play what they were designed to handle.

Expansion possibilities
You'll find two auxiliary inputs for adding sound sources — use the rear input for a permanent source like a satellite radio, and the front source for plugging your iPod® or other portable. Add JVC's Bluetooth® adapter (not included), and you'll be able to take hands-free while your cell phone stays in your pocket or purse. If you're planning to add an amp or a powered sub, you'll find a set of preamp outputs, switchable to subwoofer mode so you can adjust the bass independent of your faders.

Good, inexpensive

    Tired of installing budget car stereos and decided to go with a name-brand unit. JVC has been at the forefront of quality for a long time and I went with the KD-R330 from Crutchfield. Installation instructions and included install kit made the process painless. The price was great as I searched all over the net for the best deal. The workmanship is good as is to be expected from JVC. I just retired and am not as technically adept as younger folks but I was able to decipher the operating instructions fairy easily. It looks cool, especially at night and looks like a factory installation in my Jeep Cherokee. The sound quality made a surprising difference between the factory stereo and this one. I am going to install rear speakers as well because of the improved sound. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase.

    Pros: Exact fit for my Jeep Cherokee. Everything necessary for installation was included. Instructions were easy to follow. Appearance is cutting edge cool. Sound is exceptional. Radio sensitivity is great as previously weak stations come in loud and clear. Operating menu is intuitive and easy to navigate. Price was super and shipping very fast.

    Cons: Being an older guy and not up on all the newest tech devices, it took a little time to read and digest the operating instructions. Once I figured out the system it went very quickly. Technically savvy people would probably not even have to read the instructions.

    Honestly, I only bought this for the AUX cord capabilities. That, and it was the highest rated for a relatively cheap price. I wasn't expecting it to actually increase the sound quality that came out of my speakers. 9/10 would buy again.

    I recently decided to replace my car's factory stereo with an updated model that would allow me to play CDs. The customer service representatives were very knowledgeable and helpful, and the product arrived on time and in good condition. I have used the CD player and radio many times since it has been installed, and I am very pleased with the product. I would definitely recommend this item.

    I ordered this head unit on a Friday and it arrived at my house the following Wednesday. I did all of the installation myself, it took me about 3 and a half hours. All of the difficulty I faced was because I had never installed a head unit before. I know that it is not the highest quality out there but it has already made a world of difference from my stock head unit. I would recommend it to anybody looking for a good head unit to improve the sound system in their vehicle.

    Pros: Easy install, easy to use, good quality, great value.

    Cons: It may have made me want to spend more money on new speakers and possibly a sub

    This is a great stereo for the price. Contols are easy to use. Lots of presets, and a clock on your dash for those who don't have a stand alone chronometer from the factory. Sound is strong and you can up the decibles if needed. Also bluetooth can be added later if you change your mind.

    Pros: Price, clock, sound.

    Cons: No USB port.

    Got this for my 2007 Subaru Forester, it had the factory base stereo which was adequate but I wanted more. I'm a bit pressed for money so I ordered this only expecting the advantage of having an AUX cord (because I had been listening to CDs) but I was frankly blown away when I heard the improvement. Even with the factory speakers it simply sounds better. The equalizers are all great and if you buy the attachment it can be Bluetooth compatible. Great product, great price, would very highly recommend

    Pros: Great sound, very inexpensive, easy to install, looks great, easy to use

    Cons: No USB port

    Bought this unit after my factory radio gave out. Easy to install in my Dodge Ram 1500 with the wiring harness and adapter faceplate that I purchased. Great sound and much better audio than the factory unit. Just attached the faceplate to the unit and then wired up the units wiring harness to the factory adapter following the wiring colors. Unit fit perfect just like the factory unit.

    Pros: Great sound and easy to install. Great price.

    Cons: Most of the functions are accessed from a single knob by running through a menu. I realize most things these days work this way but I am use to a knob for every function ( I'm from the dinosaur era).

    This is by far one of the best head units for the price I have seen. After a few "off brand" deals, I went with a name brand budget radio. This will impress you. Very solid unit, it does not feel cheap. This is right on par with any JVC unit. Good sound, good display and good power for factory replacement speakers. It is hooked straight into 4 six and a halfs, no issues with sound quality. I am more than happy with every feature.

    For a Lincoln that I keep parked at the airport at the beach. The original stopped working and I replaced it with a guaranteed used one from a local recycle yard. After replacing it another time, I was told to replace the amplifier in the trunk, more money. Still no sound. This radio, along with its installation kit, cost much less than the used ones from the junk yard. It sounds much better than the original, and that was Lincoln's Premium Sound system. The best part of the whole project was how easy an unqualified person can install a first class sound system.

    Pros: It came in 2 days. First class sound from a relatively inexpensive radio. Clear, precise instructions for installation and removal tools for the old radio as well. All I needed was my soldering iron.

    Cons: Learning to set it up and use it. After getting used to it, it is quite easy, just different from stock systems.

    I've always turned to my audio/mechanic buddies in the past when it came to installing any kind of car-audio equipment. But after seeing pictures of the wiring harnesses and in-dash adapters you could get, I gave it a shot. I picked up this radio and the accessories to put in my 2005 Ford Focus station wagon to replace the stock 6-disc cd changer/radio. I have an iPod and wanted something with an audio jack. It took me about 90 minutes to splice the harnesses together and attach it to the harness under the dashboard. The colored wiring diagrams Crutchfield emailed me were easy-peasy and perfect. Fired it up and it works like magic! Quality sounds much better than the old stock radio. I love that it has two aux ins. Love that the faceplate is removable. It went so easily, three days later I ordered another of the same kit to put in our other car, a 2005 Ford Focus hatchback. Even faster installation since I knew exactly how to do it this time. Fantastic fast, free shipping, easy installation, and now I've got a sweet new deck in my car. Awesome. Thanks, Crutchfield

    Pros: Fast installation. Pretty darn easy to do, even for someone who was never car-audio savvy. Gorgeous deck. Love the color of the lights. Beautiful sound. I've never heard my stock speakers sound as nice. 2 AUX inputs; one in front and one in back. I can hook my iPod cable in the back and just leave it there like it was stock.

    Cons: Interface to set up presets can be a little clunky and take a little while to get the feel of it. Wish the clock was a default setting, or was always displaying somewhere. Not that big of a deal.

    Nice Sounding

    THis replaces my F250 stock radio. The clarity of the sound is so very much better than the OEM radio that came from Ford. Love the remote for easy "no taking my eyes off the road" adjustments.

    Pros: Sound clarity, easy to install.

    Cons: Display moves constantly, though I expect this is a setting I just have not found.

    The sound is good, not excellent but what would you expect in a $70 deck. I like it in my commuter Honda Civic. The fit was great and the install went easy. My only knock is on the ease of use. You HAVE to read the instruction manual to figure out the settings. On any other deck in any other vehicle I've owned I could figure out the settings and functions on my own. Not so much with this deck. Getting to the audio controls was a slight chore.

    Pros: Very good sound, great look.

    Cons: Control functions hard to access. Takes some getting used to.

    Perfect for the price.

    Perfect for the price. I bought this as a replacement for a 10 year old car. Worth every penny as Crutchfield offered service beyond what you would get at a brick and mortar store. Easy to install and easy to use. Simple buttons make for easy use while driving. Would buy another one if I were to replace an older stereo in a car.

    Pros: Easy installation. Buttons are easy to use (once you figure them out). Sound quality is clear.

    Cons: Not very visible in sunlight (even at its brightest).

    This is a great head unit if you're looking to upgrade your factory stereo. I wish that the display was a bit bigger/brighter, but for what I paid I am really happy with this. I especially like being able to easily toggle between the EQ settings when I am listening to vocal podcasts instead of music.

    Pros: price, quality, decent power

    Cons: display is sometimes hard to read

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Spent half a day (not to mention time buying additional tools) trying to install. I'm comfortable with electrical wiring but the interface & harness that were required are like trying to get an octopus and a squid together. Once that was done, the unit just kept turning itself on & off with display occasionally blinking. Tried to reset it multiple times with no rated with this mess.changes. Never heard anything from the speakers. Better to have my old system that works than to get frustrated with this mess.

    Pros: None

    Cons: Poor installation instructions for all equipment involved! Tripled the wiring already in the receiver area of the dashboard If you have a Toyota, don't buy this unit & additional materials

    Crutchfield response on August 27, 2014 Installing a stereo usually isn't that hard, but it sure can be confusing sometimes, especially in today's cars. Don't forget that one of the best reasons to buy from Crutchfield is our free, lifetime tech support. We can help you figure out all the wires and have those wrestling cephalopods shaking hands in no time.

    Got this for my sister for a gift and she was thrilled. Her stereo had died over a year ago and she just didn't have time to get another she said. Well I did it all for her. She cried when I gave this stereo to her. I had iy installed, she turned it on and hugged me so tight I thought she'd broken my back, lol. Honestly the sound quality of this stereo is amazing! It looks good and really is an excellent buy for the money. It sounds like a much more expensive unit. It arrived at my door step so quickly I was shocked. It was so easy to order also. I would give this stereo a 10 if I could!

    Pros: All good!

    Bought this a replacement for Toyota Tundra. This was my second JVC swap as my Avalanche has an older version of basically the same unit. My Tundra had a factory outboard amp with the 6 speaker system and I was was sceptical to bypass it and just use the built in amp on the JVC. Seems to handle it well. Controls are well thought out and and screen is easy to read. The wiring harness adaptor was easy to solder and was a breeze due to the color coded wires. Always use the heat shrink tubing for a clean and trouble free install. For the price this unit is hard to beat.

    Pros: Lots of bang for the buck.

    Cons: At this price, none really.

    I purchased this receiver as part of a budget upgrade for my commuter car, a 2001 Camry. The stock speakers had dry rotted & for the price I can't complain. My door speaker were replaced with DRVN 6 & 1/2's, the deck speakers with CSV6948 6x9's, & I also have a single 10inch sub & amp from my last commuter car. Overall, the JVC speakers & head unit are very well matched & sound very good considering the system cost under $125 & less than 2hrs for self-installation. Thank You Cruthfield for the install manuals & the excellent install kit. I listen to a wide range of music & this budget system destroys the "premium" audio of my weekend car. I chose to drill a small hole in the rear of the pocket including with my install kit, & ran a 3.5mm cable for my phone from the rear input. When not in use, the cable is pushed in to the connector & remains out of the way. My biggest complaint is, when the rear input/output is set to subwoofer I do not get sound & cannot use the adjustments for the rear output. The red button lighting is too bright & draws attention at night. I am very savvy, but I understand why some people are confused by the interface, it does require a lot of distracting menu shuffling to make small EQ, etc. adjustments. I love it personally.

    Pros: The Pro EQ settings, dual inputs jacks, remote is handy, can play mp3 discs, very good sound quality for the price.

    Cons: Red bright, look at me lighting, daytime display, rear I/O setting does not work when set to sub, direct sight remote, faceplate sticks,

    Pros: excellent upgrade or replacement for stock mobile audio

    we purchased the VC KD-R330 because the factory radio failed. This was for her car which is getting up there in age but the new radio gave her an upgrade, a few more features and performs very well with the factory system. Crutchfield provided the excellent support documentation and nice wiring harness adapters to make it a smooth transition to the new radio

    Pros: Nice features, performs well and blends in nicely with factory interior

    Cons: None

    Awesome

    This stereo really exceeds my expectations for the price. Sound is pretty good, and the features are good. I wanted a cheap stereo and this does a great job.

    Pros: Cheap and works great.
