Overview

Our take on the JVC KD-X200

Join the digital revolution

If you're ready to ditch that bulky album full of scratched-up CDs and go digital, JVC's KD-X200 digital media receiver offers an impressive array of features for its price range, along with plenty of connections for all your devices.

Ready for iPods and iPhones

Plug your iPod® into the front USB port and enjoy complete control, not to mention faster charging. The KD-X200's built-in iPod controls let you access your playlists intuitively. If you're a Pandora® Internet Radio fan, you can connect your iPhone® and access basic controls like "play," "pause," "thumbs-up," and "thumbs-down" on the onscreen display. For added convenience, the 2-way control feature lets you pick your music using the receiver or the phone itself.

Android friendly

If you have a compatible Android phone, you can use your phone's touchscreen to control the action using finger swipes and gestures — for example, make an upside-down "V" to change the source. With your Android phone safely attached to a mount, you can reach down and skip a track without taking your eyes off the road. If you want to plug in a USB thumb drive and hit the road, you can put together a custom road mix using JVC Playlist Creator software on your Windows® PC. The KD-X200 will play MP3, WMA, and WAV files.

Do more with your USB connection

The powerful 1A USB port lets you keep a smartphone charged while it's performing many battery-draining tasks at once. And with your smartphone connected, you can listen to your phone's internal memory as one source and access the little microSD card as another.

Expand your system

If you're planning to build a complete car audio system sometime in the future, the KD-X200 includes rear 2.5-volt preamp outputs that you can switch over to subwoofer mode. You can also add Bluetooth® connectivity with an optional adapter. A front aux input lets you hook up other gear, like a Dock & Play satellite radio.

This digital media receiver will not play CDs. If you want to play CDs in your vehicle, we offer a wide selection of CD receivers.

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

Very nice looking, easy to install, great sound, love the little remote.

    Pros: Great upgrade from the basic stereo system I had. Easy to install and use.

    Cons: Did not come with wire crimps, but I made use of my electrical tape, so no harm no foul.

    The installation of the JVC-X200 was fairly simple and setting up my own preferences was easy enough. The sound quality is great and I appreciate having the choice between auxiliary and USB inputs. There are a few weird features of the unit, one being when an iPod is first plugged in. The unit displays, CANNOT PLAY, and will not display any information, but does play music. Weird. Also, if the unit is in shuffle mode, the tag for the songs will not change and will only display the name of the first song shuffled. Other than that, great unit.

    Pros: price sound quality versatility

    Cons: weird features mostly plastic

    I fell head over heels in love with this item as soon as I opened to package and saw it. I went straight to installing it which with the wiring diagram was very simple to do. It took no more than 30 minutes to finish and sounded amazing after some tweaking. I went to school the next day and friends crowded around my car to get a view of my new receiver and hear the difference of sound quality. I highly recommend this item and more over this website to all my friends.

    Pros: The pros of JVC KD-X2000 is that it chargers your apple device will playing music you can control the volume and playback with the remote without taking your hands off the wheel or being in the vehicle.

    Cons: The con to this product is once an apple device is plugged in you must press a button on the face in order to change iPod modes from ext(exterior mode),which only allows control of the volume and not playback, to head mode,which does allow control of volume and playback. It becomes tedious to have to remember to switch iPod modes.

    I installed the JVC KD X200 in a '99 Mercedes wagon I recently bought. Its original radio security code didn't unlock it and even if it did, I don't have any cassettes anymore and never carry CDs around. I wanted something like my son has in his Mitsubishi with an AUX port. I got a local quote of $217 to install a Pioneer head unit - providing the Bose amp and speakers were in good shape. This JVC cost me less than 75 bucks, including everything I needed to install it and detailed instructions. It took a little over an hour to install, looks like it belongs and sounds great through the Bose system. The USB port is a great bonus. I use it more than I do the AUX port. If you don't do the CD thing, this is fantastic stereo.

    Pros: Ease of installation, great sound, priced right for my budget

    Cons: Controls are an adjustment but not that hard to figure out.

    Very good unit for the price. There are many ways to adjust the sound and the ability to hook up your phone or iPod eliminates the need for a cd player. The stereo provides plenty of power and makes your speakers loud and sound great.

    Pros: Easy to install, multiple sound adjustments, iPod compatible

    Cons: None

    i really like this stereo, it looks nice and is a great improvement over my stock radio which did not have and aux input or usb. i am able to turn the bass up more and adjust the sound quality to my liking.

    Pros: just about everything is great.

    Cons: when using pandora, it sometimes wont recognize my phone and pandora wont play.

    I bought this head unit to replace the stock radio in a 2002 Chevy Silverado 1500 Standard Cab. I'm no audiophile by any means, but in short, the factory head sounded like crap and this one sounds amazing (comparatively speaking). Installation was a breeze, as is usual with Crutchfield products. I mainly use the AUX input and listen to my iPods. I haven't really gotten into the weeds of this thing yet, but so far so good. For the price, you can't beat it.

    Pros: Low price, ease of installation, great quality sound.

    Cons: No CD player....but who still listens to CD's???

    I think this media play is great. At first I was continuously docking my iphone, which works perfectly. But because I was tired of dealing with the lightning cable I bought a low profile usb drive. It's a bummer that these sort of stereos don't play AAC files. It took several nights to convert a majority of my music to mp3 but now that its done all my music lives in my truck. I like that JVC organizes the folder list in alphabetical order, it makes it very convenient for searching. Most stock stereos with a usb reader will organize folders off a usb in the order they were written, which just doesn't make any sense. In any case, this is an excellent stereo for what it cost.

    Pros: I like that it reads the usb stick in alphabetical order. The sound is excellent. Because it's small and light weight my console seems more tight and sturdy not having to support the weight of a cd deck.

    Cons: I drive several different types of cars for work and 2 other personal cars. I've always found navigating all the different car stereo menus simple and intuitive. However, this stereo takes some getting used to. Some of the menu navigation orders don't make sense, so there's a learning curve. All the features are there tho.

    It was easy to install. Pretty good sound. The biggest reason I got this was so I could plug in my moto x via USB but it only works with mass storage android devices. And I phones. So just beware of that before u get it. Although I just plugged it in with an aux and it works fine

    I remain impressed with this JVC unit. A lot of capability and value for a modest price. I wasn't a fan of the factory "demo mode" as default, but once I read the instructions.... very happy with this purchase!

    Cons: Default 'factory demo mode" just get rid of it immediately, and you will be pleased!

    The harnesses to connect the radio do not work or are the wrong kind. I spent over an hour with a Crutchfield tech trying to figure out why it would not work.

    Pros: I am guessing, if and when the right harness is found, it might be an excellent radio.

    Cons: Harness limited ability to connect and operate.

    Got this to replace a family members stock stereo in a 2002 Dodge Neon. Everything sounds much better than the stock head unit, features on this unit are pretty nice. I like the additional EQ controls and subwoofer output. I did order this from Crutchfield, and the only issue i came across was that the screws required to screw this onto the mounting adapter were not included.

    Pros: Works great and sounds MUCH better than the stock head unit.

    Cons: Screws to mount were not included.. Shame on you crutchfield.

    The USB port doesn't work with Android devices with versions past Gingerbread. If you have a new Android device or are planning on upgrading, go with a Bluetooth enabled receiver, all of the features will work great and it will save you from a headache. When you plug in your device it searches for a USB Mass Storage Device. This means you won't be able to play Pandora or stream music from Youtube or google Play from your older Android. This is old technology that works great with flash drives, but not smartphones.

    Pros: Works great with iPhone Charges Androids

    Cons: Does not play music from newer android devices, JVC app is garbage

    This stereo fit the bill perfectly! Including soldering every wire separately, the install took less then 1.5 hours, the soldering took 45 mins alone to tape off every joint all perfectionist like to the factory wire harness kit I also got from Crutchfield. After soldering, the whole in car install experience was just over 1/2 hour (very much "plug and play" like) and off I went with new stereo perfectly fitted! The features of the stereo was what was described and more! Melds with my iPhone IOS7 perfectly just as I wished.

    Pros: Great instructions, easy install, all the features I expected, awesome deal too!

    Cons: None noted.

    I just wanted a head unit to use with my IPod, nothing else, it works great ! the sound quality is great since the speakers in my old klunker arent but it sounds like I put new speakers in ! Think of what it will sound like when I do put new speakers in. I do not need Bluetooth so that wasn't an issue. This is defiantly worth the money.

    Installation strait forward, not so with the Toyota maze of configurations (had a JBL system) rewired and modified by previous owners. The receiver/radio fit exactly, sounds great, more bells and whistles than I need but will grow into them.

    Pros: Price and ease of installation from the receiver end. Got a little more than I needed but got exactly what I asked for.

    Cons: No legitimate cons.

    I installed this receiver in two cars. Easy installation. The integration. Of this received was spectacular in both cases it looked like a factory radio. No fit problems at all.

    Pros: Good economical receiver with iPod Integration.

    Cons: Only problem with one installation was the face frame came off after 1 week had to take dash apart and re-install. Not sure why may have been loose from factory.

    Very happy with this stereo

    I got this to replace a failing factory unit and CD changer in a 2001 Corolla S. I couldn't be happier with the purchase. The JVC KD-X200 looks and feels well made. The basic black with red illuminated buttons looks like it was made for my car's interior. The display is easily visible in daylight and more than adequate for my needs. I'm still figuring out the controls, but that is to be expected. The sound is phenomenal compared to the factory unit. I wasn't expecting too much given the price, but even with the factory speakers, it's like I've gotten a whole new sound system. Depending on where your stereo will be located, you might want to consider a low-profile USB drive. I am using a SanDisk Fit which protrudes from the faceplate the same distance as the volume knob. I neither need nor desire Bluetooth connectivity, so this model is perfect for me. I think it can be added later though, so don't let that deter you. The installation was a non-issue thanks to the Crutchfield parts and instructions. There's not much else to say. I highly recommend the JVC KD-X200 to anyone looking for a great sounding, great looking, reasonably priced stereo.

    Pros: Great sound, looks, price etc. No more CDs! A USB drive means I have my entire music collection in the vehicle.

    Cons: None that I can see.

    I wasn't expecting much when I ordered this unit but I am thoroughly impressed. The faceplate feels sturdy and pressing the buttons has a solid click and feel to them. The equalizer allowed me to personalize the sound to my liking and the display works a lot better in sunlight than my last deck. I like that its low key and doesn't have flashy lighting. It looks very simple and works amazingly. There is a slight learning curve when controlling the iPod through the deck but that didn't last long. Overall I am very happy to have bought this deck.

    Pros: easy to use, easy to install, great sound output

    Cons: none

    I like the all black, non flashy look. Owning a convertible car and worrying about thieves who cut the top first and then find out my cheap radio is not worth their time of stealing. It will be too late for the damaged top that will cost a lot more to replace than the radio. The radio meets all my requrement for the money. I may buy another one for another car.

    Pros: Good enough for me for the money. Small enough to fit tight space.

    Cons: None

    Great product!!! Convinient, good price, and the sound is incredible! I bought for my boyfriend as a birthday present, and he said it was the best present he has ever got! It makes his 6-hour drive to Michigan a lot better. He can listen to whatever he wants (pandora, 8tracks or his own music), and charge his phone at the same time! It's an awesome price for what it is too... :)

    Pros: You can listen to whatever you want (pandora, 8tracks, your own music - in your iphone or flash drive), you can charge your phone at the same time, and the sound is incredible!

    Cons: Nothing!!

    These media players are great! Who uses CD's anymore? Very simple install and it has great options. The USB port and auxi input are all that is needed these days AND I LOVE IT. So simple. I also use a bluetooth adapter and it works perfectly and sounds great. I'm so happy I went with this unit. How can you beat the price! I got mine for $49 using V.me card. Great deal!

    Pros: Easy install. Streamlined and simple use!

    Cons: The LCD display reminds me of the 80's. Its pretty basic to be honest, but I can live with it.

This is an exceptional unit for the prices. Fit, Finish and sound is great. The added features of supporting all our digital attachment was the closing feature expecially the ability to play direct from our ipod.

    Pros: Exceptional preformance for the price. Easy installation, great technical help given by sales tech before our purchase.

    Got this in today and took an hour to install while showing my Wife how to do it too. Came with the install kit for my Van. Used to bigger units due to cd motors and such so it just seemed small as a head unit. Everything went in fine. Tried out a thumb drive and it sounded so much better than the old factory radio. Even the radio function worked and sounded better. I have a droid based phone so that is a little sketchy but will try out the app and see if it connects better. It charges the phone fine though...lol. Other than that one thing... this is a great value so far just to replace the factory unit.

    Pros: all digital, small, lightweight

    Cons: maybe the droid phone stuff but not that big of a deal

    Ok, I realize that this is way down at the bottom of the stereo price list but it's fantastic. You always hear that you get what you pay for, in this case that is not true. What you get is a nicely laid out stereo that includes all the basic features plus a decent equalizer. No gaudy chrome etc, it looks great in my e36 M3! Ipod/iphone control, pandora...no problem! Who has CD's anymore? They are going away like cassettes and 8 tracks before them.

    Pros: Simple efficient layout. Connection for amp/sub. Sounds great!

    Cons: Can't change display colors. Why can't they put the USB port on the back so you can hide the wire??

    Much smaller and lighter than the stereo I took out of there. Sounds great and very simple.

    Pros: Very light and smaller (on the back side) than normal stereos. Shouldn't have any clearance or fitment issues. Sounds great.

    I recently installed the JVC KD-X200 in my pickup truck. The sister model KD-X250BT is more popular, but I decided for this less expensive model as the Bluetooth comm is a wasted feature for me. I wanted to point out the key difference, and that is the red lights on the 200, as opposed to blue on the 250. The radio I replaced was a blue display, and I discovered that it hurts my night vision when driving. The red color buttons on the KD-X200 are easier on my eyes, even if they're less pretty. This radio does auto-dim with the orange/white harness wire connected to the factory headlight wire common to most vehicles, something not all radios have. Both of these radios are easy to navigate folders (up/down function), as are next/prev tracks. I use a Sandisk Cruzer Fit pen drive, which sticks out only a quarter-inch from the front panel when inserted - and isn't a protrusion easily broken when moving one's hand in front of the dashboard. I use a 16GB capacity drive loaded with WMA format music imported from Windows Media Player. The unit has no problems with this capacity, which is sheer overkill when considering navigating 200 albums encoded at 192 Kb/S. I like this radio. The white display isn't fancy, but it is easy to read. The basic two-speaker setup in my pickup truck is the simplest kind of installation there is, so I can't comment on the preamp outputs and so forth.

    Pros: Easy navigation Doesn't hurt night vision reliable (so far!)

    Cons: Wish it accepted a SD card flush with the front panel, which it doesn't

    The installation instructions were spot on. The radio is fine, the control menus took a little to get used to. All of the FM presets are in one group, so if you have a preset 7 or higher, then you have to scroll through the channels starting at 1 and working your way up. An "FM2" with its 6 presets would be a little easier. On the optional items, the wiring harness is a good idea. I had to go to another retailer after the fact and paid a little more for one. There were complaints that the in dash receiver kit for my 2000 Honda had a very tiny pocket. I didn't get it and bolted the radio in place. I removed the pocket from the stock radio and set it back in the opening under the JVC and it looks fine. It isn't fastened in place, but still holds things and looks fine.

    Pros: easy install with wiring harness

    Cons: radio presets beyond 6 are awkward to get to

    Replaced the factory radio off a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500. No premium sound package. Installation was super easy and took less than 30 min. The hardest part was putting together all the color coded wires. For the price, this unit is a steel. Great functionality with basic operation. I will mainly be using my iPhone through the USB connection. Sound quality improved slightly through stock speakers. Before I put this unit in, I always felt the speakers sounded flat. Now they're thumping along with the back window. There are plenty of audio settings to get the sound you like. I prefer a crisp, warm sound. With an adjustment of the EQ and Audio Level, I was pretty close to getting what I want. Probably can use some more tweaking. Even with the slight improvements, I still plan on replacing the speakers at a later date. A couple of tips... As you plug in your iPhone, make sure your not fiddling with the screen or the unit will be stuck on READING. You will have to reset the unit or detach/attach faceplate. Don't start swiping the screen until the music starts playing. Pandora integration is pretty cool. When listening to Pandora, everything is controlled from the unit, not the phone. If listening from your music library, you can use unit and phone for controls. Overall, very satisfied with this purchase. Tech hotline is great. Already called them twice about installation, and they were very helpful.

    Pros: Price. Pandora. No CD slot! Charges phone while listening to music. Detachable face.

    Cons: Red illumination can't be changed. Music text sometimes doesn't match to song. But it shouldn't matter when driving. There's a slight lag time from the time you press play to when the song actually starts. No biggie.

    The receiver is perfect since I don't use CDs anymore. Plus it takes up way less space behind the receiver for easy install. I need speakers badly in my 95 m3 so I can't really say how we'll it sounds, but so far it's better than the relic kenwood tape player that came with the car.

    Overall this stereo is perfect except for some minor glitches. Sometimes pressing a button will make the stereo think there's no USB. Your music will stop. And it will read and resume playing instantly. But it gets in the way of whatever settings you were changing and you must restart the process. This may be an issue with my head unit and no one else's.

    Pros: Lots of settings. Nice design. Lots of sound quality.

    I bought this for a work truck. I didn't want a CD player for simplicity but did want a USB port. This receiver is just right and works very well. The reason for 4 stars on 'ease of use' is only due to the fact that you need the manual to figure out some of the settings, but that is pretty typical.

    Pros: Inexpensive, works great, I would recommend it.

    Cons: none

    Exactly what I was looking for

    I was looking for a product that would work with my ipod, and this does flawlessly. The menu features are nice: displaying radio station names, ipod tracks, etc. If you plan on installing this yourself, be sure to have a long socket wrench arm, and real pry bars! I thought I was prepared to do it myself, but ended up taking it to a stereo place and payed their installation fee.

    Pros: easy to use, ipod integration, good value

    Cons: installation instructions could be more clear.

    Acceptable

    All things considered, this is a great buy. It looks good, performs well, and was an easy install. I needed something durable for my 1972 Toyota Landcruiser, and because of prolonged exposure to dust and vibration, didn't want to install a unit with a CD player. With its easy access USB connector on the front, bright display, good power output, and remarkably lightweight design, the JVC KD-X200 is near perfect. As a couple other reviews mention, a lot of the advanced controls are hidden through a combination of controls and require having the manual handy. This seems to be a common "feature" of many new stereos and providing more functionality in the same amount of space, so I'm OK with it. I would buy this again.

    Pros: Lightweight, looks good, great value

    Cons: Advanced menu requires having the manual nearby

    I had one of these in a company vehicle. I liked the pandora/iphone compatibility so much I ordered one for my personal vehicle. Works great, easy intall, very pleased

    Pros: inexpensive, good sound, easy install, pandora/iphone compatible

    Cons: I wish I could see channel information and clock at same time and/or scrolling is about the only thing I could come up with. Very happy with unit.

    Just installed it and it works like a dream compared to my old '07 Focus stereo. Definitely love having the AUX input. If you're sick of hauling CDs around with you and have an MP3 player, this is definitely worth it.

    Pros: Automatically dims when you turn on your headlights, don't have to lug around CDs anymore, and has a really modern tuner car look to it.

    Cons: Installation manual was a bit confusing, and couldn't figure out how to lock the unit into the cradle. Not sure if there were supposed to be screws that came with it or not.

    Simple install. Works and sounds great

    I bought this unit to replace the terrible CD player in my 2006 Crossfire. I've never been good when it comes to building, repairing, or installing anything, but Crutchfield provides all the tools you need, making the installation of this unit truly idiot-proof. After I connected the wires (using Posi-Products Car Stereo Connectors), I simply slid the unit into my dash and I was done. As for the unit itself, the sound is vastly superior to my car's stock radio. It's louder, the frequency response is flatter, and there is SO much more bass. iPod connectivity is simple. The stereo recognizes the iPod music starts playing withing seconds. You can navigate the iPod's library using the stereo's controls, but it's a little clumsy. Luckily you can still use the iPod itself to change songs, but you must press the "iPod" button until it's on the correct setting (it took me a while to figure this out). Although the unit works well, there is a small learning curve. The stereo has a lot of functions but you can only get to them by navigating various hidden menus. I strongly suggest reading the manual thoroughly, as the unit has several hidden features. Simple controls are easy and work well though. One thing that was disappointing was the build quality of the radio. The buttons feel very cheap and plastic-y. They work well and should hold up under normal use, but it's clear that you're getting what you paid for. All in all I love this receiver and it should work for anyone on a budget

    Pros: Low Price iPod support works great Great sound Simple Install Simple but effective styling

    Cons: Cheap plastic buttons Slight learning curve for interface/controls

    Great stereo

    It took longer to install but that was because of my inexperience with car recovers. Otherwise great product to go with my car.

    Pros: EQ control, USB and AUX, ease of use

    Cons: The display always switches. I would like it to stay at the time or just AUX

    Excellent Value

    So i purchased this head unit as an upgrade to my 97 Ford Explorer XLT. The main reason i selected this one was for the "no longer having to carry around a big pouch of cds" feature, given by the usb adapter on the front of the unit. Sounds awesome and definitely brang a lot more punch to my factory speakers...

    Pros: easy to use. Front usb input as well as an aux input. Ability to control the amp gain from the head unit.

    Cons: no high pass cross over.

    Perfect pair for the mp3 enthusiasts

    I have an older JVC unit in my truck that I love so when it came time to get an upgrade for my car, I knew JVC wouldn't let me down. Perfect pair for the digital music age.

    Pros: Hook ups for every mp3 player currently available. Easy to install since it fit my vehicle without any major modifications. The pro eq is perfect for most audio enthusiasts.

    Cons: It can get a bit confusing with all the different buttons and menu options for those that aren't accustom to aftermarket head units.

    I am happy with the unit overall. Sounds good, installation was no big deal, etc Well worth the price. Have a problem with poor reception and was big time disappointing but I have found out it is an antenna issue. not the receiver. So I will jump straight the two things I don't like. The white display is impossible to read in su
