Talk about a lot for a little. Boss's 660BRGB CD receiver includes an auxiliary input for your portable player, while the front-panel USB port let you play your MP3 and WMA music as well.

Bluetooth gets in the game
With the built-in Bluetooth technology, you can answer a phone call with the push of a button, and talk as if your caller is sitting next to you, freeing up your hands and letting you concentrate on the drive. The sensitive microphone's built into the faceplate, saving some installation time.

Add more to the mix
Once you've got your music going, you can tweak the sound using the four EQ presets for just the right tone. The 660BRGB also includes three sets of preamp outputs to connect amplifiers to add more power to your speakers and subwoofers. Need a different color to match your dash lighting? The variable illumination lets you pick your favorite color for the look you want.
