    Features

    Compressed File Playback: The KW-XG700 can play MP3, WMA, and AAC (iTunes only, but not Apple lossless) files recorded on CD-R and CD-RW discs. The disc must be recorded in ISO 9660 Level 1/Level 2, Joliet, or Romeo. MP3 files with bit rates from 8-320 kbps, WMA files with bit rates from 32-192 kbps, and AAC files with bit rates from 16-320 kbps are supported. Each disc can have a maximum of 512 files in 200 folders.

    Digital to Analog Converter: For high quality audio performance JVC uses a 24-bit audio DAC.

    Front Panel Auxiliary Input: A front panel stereo mini-jack is provided to allow easy connection of a portable audio source. Just connect your portable cassette, MD, or MP3 player and listen through your car system. The volume of the front panel auxiliary input can be adjusted so the level is consistent as you change from one input to another.

    Spectrum Analyzer Screen: The display background can be changed among five meter styles and two screen savers. You can also turn the spectrum analyzer off so only the alphanumeric characters and icons appear.

    3-Band Equalizer: Along with a user adjustable preset, there are five preset EQ curves; Rock, Classic, Pops, Hip Hop, and, Jazz. The user preset can be adjusted to your preference and stored in memory. The three EQ bands are centered at 60 Hz, 1 kHz, and 10 kHz. The level at each frequency can be adjusted from -12dB to +12dB in 2dB increments.

    CD Text: Song and album titles are displayed when playing CD Text encoded discs on the built-in CD player and a connected CD changer that supports CD Text. MP3, WMA, and AAC tags are also displayed.

    Amplifier Gain Control: When you are using the KW-XG700 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.

    Preamp Outputs: In addition to the 2.5 volt front and rear stereo preamp outputs, this unit has 2.5 volt line level Subwoofer outputs. The subwoofer output has independent level control, adjustable from 0 to +8.

    Crossover: The KW-XG700 has an internal low-pass subwoofer crossover; choose 95, 140, or 185 Hz.

    Optional Input Adapter: An optional JVC Line Input Adapter (item number 105KSU57 or 257KSU58) may be used to provide an additional auxiliary audio input on this unit. This feature allows you to connect a portable audio player, such as a portable MP3 player, to this unit as an additional audio source. The adapter connects to the CD changer input on this unit. When the adapter is connected to this unit, a CD changer cannot be connected.

    Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The KW-XG700 has a steering remote control jack compatible with the optional SWI-JACK interface (item number 127SWIJACK), you can retain the use of your steering wheel and/or rear seat radio controls when replacing the factory head unit in select vehicles.
