Our take on the Soundstream VR-622HB

by Dave Delamere
Soundstream

DVD receivers: They're not just for movies

DVD receivers add a new level of entertainment to your vehicle. You can watch a movie on the screen when you're parked on a Saturday night, or play a DVD through your rear seat video setup on the road. Touchscreen receivers allow you to breeze through menus with the tip of your finger. Most DVD receivers feature a USB input for audio from your iPod, and the ability to add an adapter that allows video to display on the screen. Some receivers even offer connections for a center speaker and a subwoofer, so you can build a full-fledged theater in your car, just like at home.

Multimedia haven

Take one look at the touchscreen controls on Soundstream's VR-622HB DVD receiver, and you'll quickly realize that it gives you lots of ways to enjoy your music and video. Its sharp 6.2" display provides a simple menu to access your entertainment on DVD, CD, USB, and AM/FM radio. The VR-622HB also supplies robust power, Bluetooth® connectivity, and their MobileLink™ feature to integrate your smartphone.

MobileLink for your smartphone

Soundstream's MobileLink™ function displays your phone's screen information on the receiver's big screen, providing you an easier way to see your apps at a glance. You can check out turn-by-turn directions from your navigation apps, as well as artist and track info from your music apps. You'll use your smartphone to control the apps, but you can check them out on the receiver's larger 6.2" display.

The VR-622HB's MobileLink uses the receiver's rear HDMI input to display your smartphone's apps, while the rear USB port charges your phone. Here's what you need depending on your smartphone:

Wireless convenience

Bluetooth gives you hands-free calling convenience, plus a wireless connection to the songs stored on your compatible music player. Soundstream built in a sensitive front-panel microphone that's close to you, so callers can hear you loud and clear.

Added cool stuff

You can play your MP3 music using the VR-622HB's front USB input or the DVD/CD player. Once you've picked your music, you can tweak it with the five EQ presets. You can also use the two sets of preamp outputs to add amps to your system for more power.

Use the VR-622HB's front analog audio/video input to hook up your favorite portable audio player, game console, or another video source. This receiver provides two video outputs to send movies to rear video screens, so you can keep the backseat crew happy. You'll appreciate the input for a rear-view camera — helpful for when you're maneuvering your vehicle in tight spaces.

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.

    Touchscreen & Remote Features

    6.2" LCD Touchscreen: The Soundstream VR-622HB features a 6.2" LCD touchscreen monitor (800x480) with LED backlighting. This unit's touchscreen controls with interactive video graphics make menu navigation simple and intuitive. You can adjust the screen's brightness.

    Hard-Key Controls: There are also push-button controls along either side of the LCD touchscreen monitor, including a 3-way rotary dial.

    Parking Brake Detection: For safety reasons, you cannot view a video source on the built-in monitor as long as the vehicle is in motion. In order to display video, the pink wire of the included harness must be hardwired into the vehicle's parking brake light circuit, and the vehicle's parking brake must be engaged.

    2-DIN Chassis: The VR-622HB has a 2-DIN chassis (also known as "Double-DIN"), and will fit in many vehicles with a large dash opening. The unit can be ISO-mounted using factory brackets, or Euro-mounted using the supplied mounting sleeve. As always, please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to verify fit with your vehicle.

    Remote Control: The Soundstream VR-622HB includes a 40-button IR remote control for wireless operation of the multimedia unit. The head unit also features an OEM steering wheel remote control input that lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with the Farenheit or Metra ASCW-1 Steering Wheel Control Interface (sold separately).

    Smartphone Integration

    MobileLink Input: The Soundstream VR-622HB features a rear-panel HDMI audio/video input and USB charging port (max 0.5A) for connection of select Apple iOS devices and MHL-enabled Samsung smartphones. You'll be able to listen to audio from stored music and music apps, watch video from stored movies and movie apps, and view navigation apps on your compatible Apple iOS or MHL-enabled smartphone, using the head unit's HDMI input and USB charging port (know as the "MobileLink" input). The HDMI connection provides the audio/video playback, while the USB connection charges your compatible Apple iOS or Android device (max 0.5A). Even though the VR-622HB will mirror the display of your connected device, it will not allow you to operate playback functions of your mobile device; you will still continue to use your Apple iOS or Android device's touchscreen to navigate your smartphone's menu and control audio/video playback. You will need to purchase additional cables for connection based on your type of smartphone device (see below).

    • Apple iOS Connectivity: If you have an Apple iPhone 4/4S or iPod touch (4th gen) with a 30-pin Dock connector, you will need Soundstream's 30-pin to HDMI/USB cable (530HDMI4, sold separately). If you have an Apple iPhone 5/5C/5S or iPod touch (5th gen) with the Lightning connector, you will need Apple's Lightning Digital AV adapter, Lightning-to-USB cable, and a mobile-grade HDMI cable (sold separately).
    • Android Connectivity: Most MHL-enabled Android devices, will require Soundstream's microUSB 5-pin to HDMI/USB cable (530HDMA2, sold separately). If you have a Samsung Galaxy S3/S4 or Note II/III, you will need Soundstream's microUSB 11-pin to HDMI/USB cable (530HDMA3, sold separately).
    Note: Parking brake does not have to be engaged for MobileLink input to function. Will not charge the Apple iPhone/iPad or Android smartphones with a amperage rating above 0.5A.

    Bluetooth (v2.0) Technology: The Soundstream VR-622HB features built-in Bluetooth (Ver 2.0) Technology. With built-in Bluetooth, you can wirelessly connect your Bluetooth capable mobile phone to listen to calls through your car's audio system. You can also stream audio from a Bluetooth enabled audio player. In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles. This unit is compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles - HFP (Hands Free Profile), A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), & AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).

    • Hands-free Communication w/ Integrate Mic: The VR-622HB supports wireless hands-free communication for your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. The VR-622HB allows you to carry on a phone conversation from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone using the head unit's integrated front-panel microphone and your car audio speakers. The VR-622HB allows you to answer a call from the head unit's touchscreen monitor. Incoming phone call information will be displayed on the unit's LCD monitor. You can make a call from the VR-622HB using the unit's on-screen keypad (0-9) or a call history data log of dialed, received, and missed calls. Your car audio speakers will mute automatically during a call. During a conversation, you can switch between the Private Mode (talking directly on your cell phone) and the Hands Free Mode. 
    • Audio Streaming: The Soundstream VR-622HB also allows you to play back stored music and streamed music from your Bluetooth enabled phone, PDA, or personal music player using a Bluetooth connection. You can control (Play/Pause/Skip) the music stored on your Bluetooth audio player from the VR-622HB. This unit does not display song/artist information from Bluetooth audio devices.

    Note: Before using the unit's Bluetooth functions, you must pair your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone or audio device to the VR-622HB. 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 VR-622HB.

    Disc/USB/Tuner Functions

    Disc Compatibility: The Soundstream VR-622HB supports playback of DVD-Video, DVD-R/RW, CD-Audio and CD-R/RW discs. The unit can play back MP3 music files and MP4/DivX video files recorded onto a compatible DVD-R/RW or CD-R/RW disc.

    Front-Panel USB Port: The Soundstream VR-622HB is fitted with a front-panel USB (type-A) 2.0 port for connection of a USB mass storage class device, such as a USB thumbdrive. The unit supports playback of MP3 music files, MP4/DivX video files, and JPEG photo files stored on a compatible USB MSC device (up to 32GB).

    Note: The unit's USB port is not compatible with direct USB connection of Android or Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad devices. There is also a rear USB port, but it is for charging purposes only.

    RDS AM/FM Tuner: The Soundstream VR-622HB is equipped with an AM/FM tuner with manual, preset, and seek tuning. The VR-622HB lets you store up to 18 FM and 12 AM preset stations. These presets can be stored manually or automatically. The unit's tuner also is equipped with a Seek mode that when used with the Local function, only allows radio stations with a strong local radio signals to be played.  If an analog FM stereo broadcast is hard to receive, you can manually switch the tuner to Mono operation.

    Note: The tuner features selectable North America and European tuning.

The User mode allows you to independently adjust the Bass & Treble from -7 to +7. The Loudness function enhances low and high frequencies to make the sound clearer lower volumes.

    Front-Panel AV Input: The unit features a front-panel 3.5mm audio/video input for connecting a temporary external A/V source, such as a MP3 player or game console.

    Functional Radio

    Written By SubRMC, Kingsland,Ga on Thursday, September 18, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I bought this radio and installed it in my F-150. In the usual Crutchfield fashion, the required instructions and material were more than adequate. The screenshots on the website do not accurately reflect the UI installed on the unit. Had the appropriate screenshots been provided, I likely would not have purchased. The radio is functional for the price, but beware if you are using the provided screenshots as an indication of what you are purchasing.
    Pros:
    Decent sound quality. Easy installation and setup.
    Cons:
    Software is not aesthetically pleasing.

    Everything about this stereo seems to be as advertised. Installation was smooth, options are all there. For the price it is a good unit so far. My expectations were not very high at this price point.
    Pros:
    Quick and easy install, easy to connect Bluetooth, sound quality is good.
    Cons:
    Screen is washed out in the sun and very bright at night. Even the cheapest nav systems auto dim.

    Works as advertised

    Written By Joe, Lake Cormorant, MS on Thursday, August 14, 2014
     
    Very nice all the way around. Good sound and quality. Would buy again for same price. The usb port doesn't play well with I-phone, but good with Galaxy... more than likely apple issue, not the radio.. but can't say for sure. Blue tooth works great though. Seems like the remote should work at a greater distance than it does, but I don't expect to use that very much.
    Pros:
    O.S. is nice and intuitive. Easy to operate. Nice quality and sound.
    Cons:
    Installed in 2001 cavalier. Installation brackets seemed weak and generic. Trouble with Iphone through USB port. You have to be very close and line of sight with the remote.

    Nice radio

    Written By David, Desert hot springs ca on Friday, August 01, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    It was a easy instalation. The only thing that really troubled me was the back up camera. I had it connected and then it wasn't working then to find out I had to connect the radio to the reverse gear too. Very easy to use. I had it for about 3 months and it stoped working as in it blew up in my car. But I just told soundstream and they said send it back we will give u a new one and that's what they did. It's a very nice radio. Easy to use and very cheap. I have the smartphone adapter coming it by mail so I can't wait to use that. I'm still trying to figure out how to out a subwoofer in. This radio doesn't say how.
    Pros:
    Easy cheap and reliable company
    Cons:
    None it's a perfect product

    Poor Sound Quality

    Written By JayP, Huntsville, AL on Wednesday, July 23, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I got this unit to replace one that I had recently gotten from Crutchfield that had connection issues with my Galaxy S5 over bluetooth. The bluetooth worked well on this unit as far as connectivity goes. That was my best experience with this unit. The mobilelink doesn't always work and if you do want to be able to see anything well your phone has to be displaying in landscape format (there may be a setting for that, but I didn't bother to try and find it). The screens are very basic which is fine for a unit in this price range. My big complaint with this stereo was the sound quality. The "equalizer" is pretty much non existent. It's pretty much what you'd find on a stock radio- treble and bass + or -. There are a few presets but there's only so much you can do with that kind of set up. The volume controls seemed to like to jump and I did the majority of my volume control through my phone so that I could have some kind of control over it. The unit had a very empty sound and sometimes sounded like poor radio reception. There were a few times listening to some music the hi hats sounded like maracas. I had seen a review on another website for this product that mentioned a similar experience and I thought it was possibly their speakers but going straight from another unit to this one, it is the head unit.
    Pros:
    Pretty simple to use and connects to bluetooth
    Cons:
    Bad Sound quality No customization (sound or display) Poor volume controls Poor radio reception Inconsistent functionality of mobile link

    Total junk

    Written By Mike L, Orlando on Monday, June 16, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I installed this thing in my truck and tried to use my iPhone 5 with it. After buying around $80 worth of adapters and cables to connect it, it wouldn't stay connected and the screen just flickered. I would have to reset the unit to make it work again. The bluetooth connection wouldn't stay connected either, with poor sound quality too. I was genuinely disappointed with Soundstream, as they used to be known as a "better than average" product, about 20 years ago.. Couldn't return this thing fast enough...
    Pros:
    It is a less expensive DVD player
    Cons:
    Geeze, too many to list

    Soundstream VR-622HB

    Written By fraziee, Idianapolis, IN on Wednesday, June 11, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I installed this unit in a 2003 Silverado. I also bought the cable assembly to retain the factory alert tones. (highly recommended) The unit was fairly easy to install and fit nicely in the existing opening. I had to call the support number for help with the cable harness, one of the wires was not clearly labeled. The 'power antenna' wire needed to be connected to the 'internal amp trigger' wire to get sound from the speakers. The support team was very helpful in getting me pointed in the right direction. (THANKS)
    Pros:
    Touch screen is great. Easy to navigate between menus.
    Cons:
    No control over the user interface look and feel. (button layout, color, and wallpaper ect.) Time and date display is very poor and does not display unless the unit is turned on so you loose you clock.

    installation was easy but it would've been nice to know that the gear shifter needed to be moved from park before you disconnect the battery. To allow clearance for the heater control trim to be removed

    Soundstream VR-622HB

    Written By skewzme, Prince George VA on Tuesday, May 06, 2014
     
    First, I'm not an audiophile. But this thing seems to have everything I could want and more. Screens are very intuitive. Bluetooth works perfectly. Hands free calling is great, and the built in mic seems to pick up my voice without having to shout. I couldn't be happier. Had to call the Cruthfield tech support 3 times during installation. They answered every time within a minute, and told me everything I needed quickly. Install took a couple hours, but I was taking my time. Probably could have done it in half that. Very, very pleased with this unit.
    Pros:
    Feature packed.
    Cons:
    You have to buy an additional adapter if you want to display your smartphone screen on the unit's screen. It''s $50 bucks, so I decided against it for now.

    Can you hook this up to steering wheel radio controls? [ Devin A Abrams  Aug 26, 2014 ]
    1 answer
    • The ability to retain steering wheel controls with aftermarket receivers will be determined by the receiver you are using and the vehicle you have. For full information on this type of integration (including the parts you will need) please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy Staff  Aug 27, 2014 ]

    Are the pigtail cables on the back of the unit long enough to hang below most dash boards? I ask because there numerous cables you need to use the MHL function depending on which phone you have and if you needed to switch cables for some reason and they didnt hang below the dash you would need to pull out the entire unit to change the cable. [ scott  Aug 17, 2014 ]

    • The pigtails on the back of the unit are the same length as other aftermarket stereos I have seen, about 6 inches. The adapter that Crutchfield sends with the unit is usually soldered to the pigtails, and that adds another 6 inches. If you need more wire length, just solder in your own wire. Hope this helps. [ Stephen   Aug 22, 2014 ]
    • they do not according to who installed the unit you have to supply the cable. which I had he wrong ones and I have to redue it when I get the right cables. [ James   Aug 20, 2014 ]

    I installed this unit in my versa '09 but I notice that when I turn my headlights on, the unit stops working. I matched the wire colors, any idea why it does that? [ Liz  Jul 30, 2014 ]
    3 answers
    • If the unit shuts off when the lights are turned on, perhaps the dim wire is tied to the switched 12v supply or wired to it incorrectly. Could be a low voltage issue. Mine did this when the battery was low from sitting with the doors open. I had to reset the head unit. .there's a small hole on the face for it. [ Taylor   Aug 01, 2014 ]
    • I'm returning this unit I had multiple problems and I am fed up with it [ Bailey   Jul 31, 2014 ]

    • The date and time are in the top right corner just touch it and the time will show up [ KELLY   Jul 25, 2014 ]
    • Honestly, I couldn't get that piece of junk out of my dash fast enough, didn't keep it long enough to check into screen savers. Sorry... [ Michael   Jul 25, 2014 ]
    • I'm not sure [ Raymond   Jul 25, 2014 ]

    • I think there is no way only the time and date [ ROLANDO   Jul 25, 2014 ]
    Has anyone used this with the iPhone 5? I was wondering how well it integrates video from the iPhone 5. I want to use it with a navigation app, youtube, and Netflicks. I would also like to run iheart radio, and pandora. [ Tony  Jun 14, 2014 ]

    • As much as I hate to bash a product, I spent two weeks trying to just get this thing to work right. It never did and I couldn't return it fast enough! The hard wired connection will cost you at least $80, to include the Apple adapter, HDMI cable and lighting to usb cable. Even then, it only connects occasionally and the screen just flickers on and off. The bluetooth won't stay connected and I had to reset the unit every time I got back into my truck. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. I learned my lesson... Crutchfiled was great though, no issues with them at all.... [ Michael   Jun 16, 2014 ]
    • It's works pretty well with pandora I haven't tested mobile link yet for you tube videos, but I have played DVD movies without an issue [ ramon warn   Jun 16, 2014 ]
    • when I bought this thing in was pretty upset,, there is a front usb but it didn't read ipods an the eq on this thing sucks all u get is treble an bass to eq bleh I would not get it,, I even sold mine for a $100 only cuz if I sold it for any more I would feel like I was ripping someone off [ NOAH   Jun 15, 2014 ]
    • I just installed this a few weeks ago in my Acadia, I currently use a iphone 5 and it works flawlessly. You just need to buy the adapter for your iphone and esentially anything on the screen of your phone will show up on the screen of this unit. Very happy with the VR-622! [ DANIEL   Jun 15, 2014 ]
    • I don't use the phone options,but the picture is very clear.The main thing that I don't like w/this unit is every time I shut the car off the volume goes back to minimal instead of staying @ the volume I set it at.Also,the clock will not keep correct time. [ CHARLES M   Jun 15, 2014 ]
    How do you add the date and time on the home screen? just installed it and its not showing up. The instructions say nothing about it. [ Michael  May 09, 2014 ]
    2 answers
    • I had the same question. It's simple. Just touch the upper right side of the display. There is a area that allows you to turn on/off the time and date so it does not display during DVD playback. [ EARL   May 16, 2014 ]
