Installation Note: Soundstream's VR-732B requires adequate clearance for its oversized display when mounted in your vehicle's dashboard (see Details). Please call us at 1-888-955-6000 if you require assistance in determining if it will work in your vehicle.
You'd like the touchscreen controls a larger DVD receiver offers, but you can't get that larger chassis in your vehicle's dash. Soundstream's VR-732B DVD receiver solves that problem. You'll get a detachable 7" touchscreen display on the body of a smaller single-DIN (2" tall) radio, so it can fit a wide variety of vehicles. Along with its cool display, the VR-732B offers solid power, DVD and CD playback, a USB port, an SD card slot, and Bluetooth for wireless audio and hands-free calling.
You'll enjoy crystal-clear hands-free phone calls and great-sounding audio streaming using the VR-732B's built-in Bluetooth technology. Your phone book info transfers in moments, so you can quickly make calls and identify incoming callers. And you'll be able to control your streaming music from the receiver, without having to use your phone to change tracks.
Soundstream built in a sensitive built-in Bluetooth microphone for your calls, located closer to the driver on the upper left corner of the receiver's faceplate.
Soundstream equipped this receiver with a USB port and SD™ card slot for plugging in storage devices with up to 32 GB of capacity, so you should never be at a loss for your MP3 music or MP4, AVI, and DivX video. And of course it plays CDs and DVDs, along with just about any kind of recordable disc. If you've got a gaming console or other A/V sources, plug them into the front A/V input. When you're ready for some video entertainment, set the brake and enjoy video from DVDs, USB devices, or SD cards.
Once you've picked your music, you can tweak it with the five EQ presets. You'll appreciate the five preamp outputs if you're adding amps to your system.
Color-coded icons on the touchscreen let you quickly set up the receiver, and then provide you access to your music and video — no more clumsy flicking through layered menus to find your source.
In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with a new car stereo. Check “Details” for more information, and the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters. If you're not sure if you need an adapter, call, chat, or email an Advisor for help determining what you'll need for your vehicle.
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.
Video 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 or downloaded video through your rear seat video setup on the road. Touchscreen receivers allow you to breeze through menus with the tip of your finger. Most video receivers feature a USB input for iPod audio, and the ability to add an adapter that allows video to display on the screen.
I purchased this product to put in a 2003 Ford Crown Victoria P71. The website said it would fit my vehicle and the Crutchfield representative over the phone also assured me that it would fit my vehicle. Needless to say I wasted my time trying to install this in my car considering it was not a direct fit. I was highly disappointed that it would not fit. So I had to ship this Soundstream VR 732 b back and go with a standard single din that would fit my car. Just a heads up for anyone trying to put this specific product in their Crown Victoria, Grand Marquis etc... This unit will not fit as the site says, in order to make it fit you would have to do some form of modification. For example cutting or grinding on part of the dash for the screen to attach to the unit and still clear the dash. I ended up going with the Soundstream VR 345B which so far is working well. Only had it in the car for about a week.
Cons: Did not fit my vehicle like Crutchfield assured me that it would.
5 stars for each category!
Pros: It has more features than I thought it would. It exceeded my expectations!
Cons: Putting the panel on and taking it off was difficult for me.
Bought this unit a year ago... within 3-6 months the screen went south. You can see the display, but not able to use touchscreen. Called Crutchfield, and they told me it was a manufacturer issue. Crutchfield told me to use the remote that came with it... When I call Manufacturer, I always go to a voicemail for this model. The manufacturer never calls me back. This past weekend I had a McDonalds cup spill out in my truck, and now the remote doesn't work... So the system is worthless. Went back to stock. Very unhappy Crutchfield.
Handsfree gets lots of people saying they can't hear me.
Can only have 6 preset stations even though the remote looks like you can have 10.
I have an 02 Avalanche, and the screen covers my HVAC controls.. I can't see what I am turning on, but they are still usable. Just have to learn which controls do what.
1 year later the radio is unusable unless I want to listen to 1 station on the radio or want to put in a cd and let it play in its' entirety.
Pros: It's a radio...
Cons: Read above... piece of junk.
this thing is awesome. a small display can have all the stuff that we need and can't believe it also has a DVD player. it's more than i expect!
Pros: hand free. steering wheel control.
Cons: the only problem is when i play music with my blue tooth and it can't setting the display. you can not do it at the same time. i holp they will change that.
overall a very good entry level touch screen multi function receiver. I purchased for my mom which is 64 and is not good with techy stuff butt was easy for her to get around and good display for her to see.
Pros: great upgrade for the older factory radio. easy to plug and play
Cons: no cup holder lol
Installation was straightforward, and it performed all the advertized functions. I mainly bought it for blue-tooth phone and the ability to play my music collection from a memory card. While it is not an audiophile component by any stretch of the imagination it does sound better than the factory stereo and I have not had any complaints about voice quality of phone calls. It does take awhile to pair, but once connected seems to keep the connection. The user interface is not very refined and moving through some of the menus interrupts the current play list or program. A few program updates and menu refinements could make this unit a great value, but I'll be replacing mine soon with something that has a better user interface.
Pros: Good sound for the price. A lot of features. Functional hands-free phone. It is a fair option to update a 10-15 year old factory radio.
Cons: Listening from a memory card - when turned off it forgets the random setting and occasionally even forgets the last track played. In order to get back into random mode you have to push the random button twice. Doesn't seem like a big deal, but iPod has been able to pickup where it left off for years. The user interface is clunky and not optimized for my needs. Some menu selections interrupt the current program material. The color theme is not very pleasing.
Bought this unit to replace a dated unit in my 1996 mustang. I've installed plenty of radios before and this one was a breeze to install. All the wires are clearly marked and the mounting hardware fit flawlessly. It works as advertised. Touch screen is clear and easy to navigate. Bluetooth paired easily and worked good. I was able to change songs with the touch screen while connected to my phone. The CD player worked great and played my recorded disks which was a problem with the unit I replaced. The DVD player also worked great and had a very nice picture. In all I would definitely recommend this unit and am thinking about buying another one for a different car I own.
Pros: Large screen, Bluetooth functionality, coolness!
Cons: If I had any gripes at this point it would be that there is a little sound quality issue while listening to music while connected in Bluetooth. But for the money it's not a huge issue for me.
It's great! It has great attributes awesome sound and it just looks awesome
I now have checked out all the functions of this unit and they work just find, but I'm going to reprogram my sd card cause it I can't find how to get into the other folders.
Pros: Easy setup, Sounds great
Cons: The kit from Metra is off on the cover for the units face that extends out of the frame, I had to dremel it down a bit.
So far I've haven't any complaints but I yet to ry all the modes out, just aux in and usb still need to find out how they work.
Pros: no problems so far back up camera has a better picture than my old unit. need o check out dvd player.
Cons: none so far
Amazing! Looks get in my truck. Thanks Crutchfield!
Great picture. Easy to use/figure out.
Pros: Big screen in a single DIN unit.
Cons: Can be a tricky install depending on your application.
This cd/DVD player is a bang for your buck easy to install, installed it in a 05 Cadillac Deville pretty nice sound Quality with the Bose speakers, DVD picture decent quality Bluetooth works flawless
Pros: USB,sd card slot, Bluetooth, 7inch detachable screen easy to install
Cons: Can't upload screen savers, pretty basic
I give it a 9 out of 10
Pros: Shows a great picture
Cons: The face hangs over the heat control.switch
Super easy to use Bluetooth works great parking brake easy to bypass so you can play DVDs anytime. Love this unit. Plays songs from my smart phone via Bluetooth perfectly
Pros: great value easy to use and set up
Cons: installed in a 2002 GMC 2500 and it sucked. Got it installed and love it but be prepared to trim and cut. Doesn't fit like the web site says. It requires some creative engineering
I thought this would be awesome. It has good ratings and cool features with an awesome price. The downside for me is the Bluetooth connection is slow and produces a ton of static. Therefore its useless for music, and I have to use an auxillary cable. I could've gotten that function for a lot cheaper. The a/v input leaves me with a screen with a lot of noise and high pitched whine in the sound. So that's useless. The dvd player is too. It'll drain your battery if your car isn't running. The radio isn't too easy to control. They way you have to switch from station to station takes forever. And even though Crutchfield said it would fit in my car without any modification, the area around it had to be trimmed a bit to fit it in.
Pros: Good audio for the radio and input through auxillary cable. Simple and intuitive interface.
Cons: Slow and noisey Bluetooth. Bad av input. No visualiser of any sort. Kills battery. Slow radio controls.Crutchfield response on August 5, 2014 We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
The flip down screen is a solid idea. The flip up wouldn't work in my car so I gave this a shot and I like it! The goods definitely outweigh the bads with this radio. There are some issues. One thing that really bugs me is the power antenna. No matter what, if I'm listening to the radio or a CD or Bluetooth, my antenna is up and I don't really like that. And my only other issue is the interface of the radio. The LCD screen could be sharper and some personalization settings with some different colors or layouts would make this radio a 10/10.
Best stereo I've ever owned, easy to use big screen for me to see while driving, handsfree phone is awesome
Pros: Easy to use
Cons: Can't think of one
Basically this radio works great. There are some quirks about the interface that I think could have been worked out better but overall it's a good machine. I bought it mainly to be an inexpensive view screen for the backup camera I wanted to install. Got a kid and I back up into the driveway a lot. It works great for this application.
Pros: Large interface buttons for most applications. Wiring well defined and labelled. Bright screen. Easy to use. Excellent price. I was able to install this and a backup camera for about $300. Another retailer wanted about $650 for something similar. Installation was really pretty simple. My first car stereo install and it only took me about 2 hours including crawling under my car to run the backup cam.
Cons: First con is the adapter that Crutchfield sent me. It fit in it but it didn't fit. Basically the base of the receiver fit. But the screen didn't. I had to cut away a lot of the thing to get it to actually function. Second, the dimmer line doesn't work. If you buy this don't connect the dimmer wire at all. It causes the receiver to reboot, especially if using SD card loaded music. Last, this is specific to my truck. I had to make the thing stick out to function properly. Not a real con though.
I used this unit to replace a stolen stereo (try riding around with no tunes for a while). It looks good, installed easily, and worked well. The sound is solid, and the touchscreen works well. The SD works, and the phone /BT features were solid.
Pros: good looks, clean install, 1 din install, 7 inch screen
Great Product would purchase again for 2nd car.

It comes with a wire harness type thing where you plug into the back of the head unit and you will have the female RCA ports for your the RCA's to go to you amp for your front speakers and your rear speakers. [ MICHAEL ANTHONY Jan 29, 2016 ]
YEs [ O Jan 15, 2016 ]
Yes with the preamp RCA jack on the back. That way when to turn your ignition switch to accessory or on it all powers up, and connect your subwoofer to your amp. [ Christopher Jan 15, 2016 ]

It has an input cable for it, but I don't know the compatabilities of different manufacturers. [ BRIAN ANTHONY Aug 24, 2015 ]
The VR-732B does have a rear view camera input. [ Seth Aug 23, 2015 ]
YEp. [ Peter Alan Aug 23, 2015 ]
Not sure about a roku. The USB and SD card are finicky about what formats they will play. I couldn't get it to work right. In the end I just got Google play music on my phone and stream it via bluetooth. Way easier. [ Calhoun Aug 18, 2015 ]
Sorry, but I do not know [ Scott Aug 18, 2015 ]
I plugged one in this weekend and it would charge while plugged into usb. [ Scott Aug 10, 2015 ]
Yes, the USB port has power [ Kurt Aug 08, 2015 ]
It charges my S5 so I would think that yes it would. [ S Aug 08, 2015 ]
No [ O Aug 08, 2015 ]
Yes [ Ravi Aug 08, 2015 ]
Yes, it will. I don't remember it being able to use the hd though. [ dale Aug 08, 2015 ]
no [ Paul H. Jun 30, 2015 ]
No. I got this system and the monitor broke. When trying to get it replaced I was on back order for over a month. Look into a clarion system. A lot better [ Colin Jun 30, 2015 ]
No, it does not. You can control the phone, but it doesn't display any music data. (at least with win8.1) It does display call information [ Kurt Jun 29, 2015 ]
No, just device name. [ Ravi Jun 29, 2015 ]
IT will display all info about it that you have on your phone,iPod etc. [ steven michael Jun 28, 2015 ]
No [ Christian Jun 28, 2015 ]
No, unfortunately not. It shows your devices name but no song info. Other than that I really like this unit for the price. [ Jay Jun 28, 2015 ]
Short answer: No I believe if you get the non Bluetooth version there is something called smart control for your phone, that might let you see your phone screen on the receiver display... This unit has a composite video in, so if your phone has some kind of video out you can connect it that way... [ Paul H. May 22, 2015 ]
no [ Vernon May 14, 2015 ]
Paired via Bluetooth it will play your tunes and answer your phone but won't display your GPS screen. There is a way to hard wire video to it e.g. a rear cam and you may be able to display your phone GPS that way but I don't have the instructions in front of me. As you can see from the pic on the web site it has an AV in. If you can get AV out from you phone it will display it, I doubt this is doable on this unit. Aside from that, it installed nicely in my 93 Jeep Cherokee. You need to look closely at your install location. The screen needs to be able to flip up and down freely. [ O May 13, 2015 ]
No, it can only stream audio from phone for music and phone calls. [ Ravi May 13, 2015 ]
If your phone has a video out option that will plug into an RCA line, maybe [ Kurt May 13, 2015 ]
No. You'll be a bit dissapointed. [ JEANNIE May 13, 2015 ]
Not that I know of. [ ANTHONY May 13, 2015 ]
No, when you are in blue tooth mode you look at a default phone screen. [ dale May 13, 2015 ]

No but Its a great unit. Installed in my 93 Grand Cherokee easypeze working fine for more than a year now. [ O Aug 08, 2015 ]
Yes it can I've had this head unit for a while now and as long as you pair the phone through Bluetooth to the reciever it works like a charm every time. I just get into my car, it pairs up automatically and I can make calls and play music from my phone wirelessly. If your think about getting it, GET IT! You won't regret it. [ wilson May 21, 2014 ]
