Don't limit yourself to a single-sized receiver when you've got a double-sized dash opening in your car. JVC's KW-AVX810 DVD receiver will look right at home in your dash, with a 7" video touchscreen that makes it easy to access receiver functions on the fly. A handy proximity sensor illuminates the receiver's buttons when your hand approaches the screen.

Enjoy videos and movies on the KW-AVX810's bright screen when you're parked. The built-in amplifier brings out the best in your your tunes when you're driving, and you can compensate for your car's acoustics with the 7-band iEQ equalizer. The wireless remote lets your passengers adjust your system without disturbing your driving.

Playback options
The KW-AVX810 plays standard and recordable CDs and DVDs, including MP3, WMA, WAV, and AAC files you've burned to DVD, so you can cruise for days with the music on one disc. If you prefer, you can load up an SD™ card or a thumb drive with files to play back through the receiver's SD card slot or USB input.

Expansion options
Control your iPod® on the big screen with an optional adapter, or add the programming variety of satellite radio to the mix. JVC's optional Bluetooth® adapter gives you the convenience of hands-free calling as you listen to your caller over your car's speakers.

With an optional second monitor, your backseat passengers can watch a video in the back while you enjoy peace and quiet up front. Three sets of high-powered preamp outputs let you add amps and subs to get extra kick and clarity from your music or soundtracks.

    Detachable Motorized 7" TFT LCD Touch-Screen Monitor: The KW-AVX810 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. You can detach the touch-screen LCD monitor and place it in its supplied soft face case to prevent theft.

    Display Angle: The motorized display can be tilted (up) to one of seven angles.

    Wallpaper: You can choose from four background wallpapers; Metal, Sky, Bright and 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
    • Panorama: for viewing 4:3 pictures naturally on the unit's wide-screen display
    • 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-AVX810 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-AVX810 can play MP3, WMA, AAC, 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) and WMA/WAV Tag for album and artist information. The unit supports AAC files with bit rates of 16-320 kbps. 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-AVX810 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-AVX810 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.

    Source Naming: The KW-AVX810 allows you to assign names of up to 16 characters each for the A/V input, the EXT input (connected to the CD changer input using an optional adapter), and up to 30 AM and FM stations.

    Menu Language: There are nine options for the menu language; English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Swedish, Danish, and Russian.
