The "Do-it-all" car stereo

Play all your music

The USB slot on the front gives you a couple of ways to play your tunes: through your iPod or a USB drive. Connect your iPod, and you can browse your music library using the stereo's control knob, letting you stash your iPod safely in your glove box or console.

But if you don't have an iPod, that's fine, too — just load up a thumb drive with MP3 and WMA files, plug it into the USB slot, and navigate your files and folders in much the same way. Got both? Axxera includes a second USB drive in the rear. As a bonus, Axxera builds an SD card slot behind the fold-down face. However you carry your music files, Axxera's XDMA7800 CD receiver can play them.

Built-in hands-free calling

Keep your eyes on the road while you drive with built-in Bluetooth®. Simply pair your compatible phone and you'll hear your caller over your speakers. Axxera includes an external mic you can mount right nearby, so your callers can hear you loud and clear. Plus, you can stream music from a compatible device through this receiver — no wires needed.

Sounds great, looks great

Axxera gives you the tools you need to dial in just the right sound. High- and low-pass filters let you send your speakers and subs the frequencies they were designed to handle, which lets them hit harder and run more efficiently. Then use the 3-band EQ to fine-tune your sound — you can even set the center frequency on each band for precise adjustments. Axxera includes a remote for on-the-fly changes. You can choose from 31 display colors, or create your own custom color, so this Axxera will look right at home in your dash.

Bluetooth note: Bluetooth compatibility of this device may vary, depending on your phone and service provider.

Smartphone note: If you're going to use your smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit.

    • CEA2006 Specs: 18 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
