Overview

Our take on the JVC KW-XC770



Can't decide between CD and cassette for your Japanese car? Why not get both with the double-size KW-XC770? You'll be in for a real musical treat when you fire up this spectacular receiver. A 7-mode spectrum analyzer dances to your music's energy while the high-power 4-way amplifier invigorates your speakers. And the oversized buttons and rotary control make it so easy to turn features on and off or adjust settings!

You'll get a special 1-bit DAC to eliminate audible distortion for superior CD sound, and an oil-dampened suspension to virtually prevent CD skipping. Connect an optional JVC 12-disc CD changer, and presto — you'll have four music sources at your command!

JVC's HS-II tuner with 24 presets will satisfy even the most demanding listener. The built-in full-logic cassette deck also has Dolby B for hiss-free highs, and automatic tape EQ so you can play high bias tape without the music sounding shrill. Multi Music Search helps you find that one song on the cassette without a lot of hassle. Sound Control Memory saves the bass, treble and loudness settings. A wireless remote is supplied.

Add a JVC disc changer to your order and you'll save $$ with our package discount.
