About the Axxera AXM120
Spruce up that older dash without going overboard
Spruce up that older dash without going overboard
Axxera's AXM210 digital media receiver offers an incredible value for those drivers who have given up on compact discs but don't really care for tethering their phone to their stereo (and vice-versa). For fans of files, it offers a front-panel USB port (sorry, no iPhone® or Android™ compatibility) and an SD™ card input behind the faceplate — they'll accommodate your memory media holding MP3s and WMAs. And for those who want to tap into their phone's music (or a portable media player), a front-panel auxiliary input makes it easy to jack right in and get the tunes rolling. And you can always listen to your favorite local radio stations, too.
You'll enjoy some pretty potent power from the AXM210's built-in amplifier. And if you want to add a little more punch, a set of preamp outputs make it easier to add an outboard amp or a powered sub.
You wanted the knob, you've got the knob
Axxera knows there's no feeling like hitting the open highway and cranking up the volume (to a safe level) as the wind and road noise start to kick in. The AXM210 features a handy knob so you can turn things up or down to your delight without the hassle of tiny buttons or a sensitive touchscreen. Axxera throws in a detachable faceplate and a wireless remote for added security and convenience.
