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.

Big screen for a small opening

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.

Soundstream VR-732B DVD receiver

Bluetooth® is built in

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.

Lots of media

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.

Expand and control your system

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.

Want to keep your steering wheel audio controls?

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.

    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.

    Touchscreen + Remote Features

    7" Motorized Touchscreen Display: The Soundstream VR-732B features a motorized 7" LCD monitor (800 x 480) with LED backlighting and iGlass touchscreen technology. iGlass touchscreen technology offers more precise control, greater clarity, and less glare. This unit's touchscreen controls with interactive video graphics make menu navigation easy. The monitor electronically slides out for loading or ejecting a disc, and allows you to adjust the viewing angle (1-4) of the screen.

    Note: The motorized LCD monitor measures 7.3125" (w) x 4.5" (h). It extends 2.375" below the bottom of the head unit's chassis and does not retract inside of the unit. This type of design may interfere with your vehicle's instrument panel. As always, please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car and talk to one of our Sales Advisors to verify fit with your vehicle.

    Detachable LCD Monitor: The unit's LCD touchscreen monitor is detachable to deter theft, and comes with a padded carrying case for added protection.

    Hard-Key Controls: There are also push-button controls along the side-panel of the detachable touchscreen monitor. The controls included a 3-way rotary dial and 4 push-buttons (Eject, Home, Set, EQ).

    Dimmer: You can adjust the unit's LCD monitor brightness in 4 steps, including Off.

    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. Video on the LCD monitor can only be displayed when this unit's Parking Brake wire (pink) senses that the parking brake has been engaged in the vehicle.

    Remote Control: The Soundstream VR-732B includes an IR remote control for wireless operation of the multimedia unit.

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.

    Note: Before using the unit's Bluetooth functions, you must pair your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone or audio device to the VR-732B.  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-732B.

    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

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    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.

    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.

    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
