Product Reviews: Car Stereos

Harry from Pioneer Electronics came to visit us here at Crutchfield and showed us some of the great features available on their DEH-80PRS CD receiver.

Pioneer's 2013 navigation receivers give you great sound, smartphone connectivity (including iPhone 5, with an adapter), and snappy, accurate navigation.

The top end of Alpine's 2013 CD receiver line gives you exciting features, like Bluetooth, App Direct mode, and the ability to tune your sound using your smartphone.

JVC's 2014 digital media receivers are great for everyone who uses their smartphone as their main source of music, and they work great with popular music apps.

Clarion's Intelligent VOICE software lets you talk in conversational English, and delivers relevant results quickly, thanks to incorporated Google Voice technology.

The Sony MEX-XB100BT CD receiver includes a small hideaway amp that delivers 40 watts RMS per channel, which is double the power output of similar receivers.

Clarion's CZ505 CD receiver lets you upgade the sound in your car and add some cool features, like built-in Bluetooth for music streaming and Pandora control.

Clarion's CX505 double-DIN CD receiver fills out your vehicle's dash and gives you some nice upgrades, like streaming music, hands-free calling, and Pandora® control.

Crutchfield had the opportunity to chat with Kenwoods General Manager of Product Research and Development, Rick Noetzli. He provided some great insight about Kenwoods philosophy in creating outstanding mobile audio gear.

The Pioneer SPH-10BT smartphone receiver turns your phone into a touchscreen display. We tested a few features to see how well the stereo and Pioneer's Smart Sync app work together to create the full touchscreen stereo experience.
