If you have a double-sized dash opening in your car, why limit yourself to a regular receiver? JVC's KW-AVX710 DVD receiver boasts touchscreen controls and a bright 7" video screen it'll make a real statement in the dash of your car.
The receiver's bright, sharp picture lets you enjoy videos and movies when you're parked, and the powerhouse amplifier belts out your tunes with authority when you're driving. The 7-band iEQ equalizer offers precise adjustment of the bass, midrange, and treble, so the music sounds just right in your vehicle. The touchscreen interface makes it easy to access receiver functions on the fly, while the wireless remote lets your passengers make changes without disturbing your driving.
You'll enjoy all the musical variety you want. The KW-AVX710 plays standard and recordable CDs and DVDs; it even plays MP3 or WMA files you've burned to DVD, so you can cruise for days with the music on one disc. Add HD Radio with an optional JVC tuner.
Add an inexpensive optional adapter to enjoy easy control of your iPod, or add the variety of satellite radio to the mix. JVC's optional Bluetooth® adapter gives you the convenience of hands-free calling. You can entertain your backseat passengers by connecting an extra monitor to the video output. For some extra kick, wire an amp or powered sub to the set of preamp outputs.

Motorized 7" TFT LCD Touch-Screen Monitor: The KW-AVX710 features a motorized 7" TFT Active Matrix, 16:9 touch-screen monitor with an adjustable viewing angle. The pixel resolution of the display is 1440 horizontal x 234 vertical (336,960 pixels total). The LCD serves as a video monitor, system information display and touch-screen control panel. The monitor's brightness can be adjusted from -15 to +15.
Display Angle: The motorized display can be tilted (up) to one of seven angles.
Wallpaper: You can choose from four background wallpapers; Horizon, Metal, Art or Plain. The wallpaper color can be changed from blue, light-blue, red, orange, yellow, green, purple, dark-blue, dark-green, brown, light-brown or black.
Selectable Aspect Modes: You can choose from four aspect modes for the in-dash display:
- Regular: for 4:3 source material, 4:3 and 16:9 pictures display with black bars on either side (16:9 images are compressed)
- Full: expands 4:3 pictures horizontally to fill the entire width of the screen, distorting the picture slightly but retaining full image height
- Auto: the correct aspect mode is automatically chosen based on the incoming signal
Dimmer: When 12 volts is applied to the illumination lead and the dimmer set to Auto, the display dims. The dimmer can also be set to Off (normal brightness at all times), On (display is always dimmed), or Dimmer Time Set (you program the time for the dimmer to turn off an on). The unit also features 3 dimmer levels to choose from - Bright, Middle, or Dark.
Picture Adjust: Brightness, Contrast, Color, and Tint can each be adjusted from -15 to +15.
Disc Compatibility: The JVC KW-AVX710 supports the playback of the following disc types: DVD-Video, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, CD-Audio, CD-R/RW and Video CD.
Compressed File Playback: The KW-AVX710 can play MP3, WMA, WAV, JPEG, DivX, MPEG1, and MPEG2 files recorded on DVD-R, DVD-RW ,DVD+R, DVD+RW, CD-R, and CD-RW discs. The disc must be recorded in ISO 9660 Level 1/Level 2, Joliet, or Romeo. MP3 and WMA files with bit rates from 32-320 kbps are supported along with IDTag3 (version 1.0, 1.1, 2.2, 2.3 or 2.4) for album and artist information. DivX video files with resolutions 720 x 576 or less are also supported. Each disc can have a maximum of 5000 files and 250 folders, with a maximum of 999 files per folder.
MOS-FET Amplifier: The JVC KW-AVX710 features a MOS-FET amplifier that is CEA-2006 compliant and rated at 20 watts RMS x 4 channels in 4-ohm and 1% THD+N with a signal to noise ratio of 80 dBA.
Amplifier Gain Control: When you are using the KW-AVX710 with factory speakers (or those rated to less than 50 watts peak), the Amplifier Gain Control can limit the amount of power being sent to those speakers. When the Amp Gain Control is set to low, the volume control ranges from 0 (minimum) to 30 (maximum). When using speakers rated higher than 50 watts peak, you can set the Amp Gain Control to high, and the volume control will range from 0 to 50. The internal amp can also be turned off when all the speakers are powered by outboard amplifiers.
7-Band Equalizer: Along with a flat preset, there are 8 preset EQ curves and three user programmable fields; Hard Rock, R&B, Pop, Jazz, Dance, Country, Reggae, Classic, User 1, User 2, and User 3. The user presets can be adjusted to your preference and stored in memory. For each User preset, you can independently adjust the following frequencies: 60 Hz, 150 Hz, 400 Hz, 1 kHz, 2.5 kHz, 6.3 kHz, and 15 kHz. The level of each frequency can be adjusted from -10dB to +10dB in 2dB increments.
Dynamic Range Compression: This function reduces a Dolby Digital soundtrack's dynamic range so you can hear quieter dialog without being overwhelmed by loud sections. You can choose a setting of Auto or On.
Source Volume Control: The volume of each source (other than FM radio) can be adjusted relative to the FM volume, so the level is constant as you change from one input to another. The volume level of each source can be adjusted from -12 to +12.
