About the JVC EXAD KD-AVX1

No question about it: you're going to love JVC's KD-AVX1. It's an in-dash DVD receiver with a 3" LCD monitor built right into its motorized, fold-down faceplate. It offers up a great blend of eye-catching aesthetics and innovative technology that'll keep you entertained whether you're driving cross-country or just camped out in your driveway.

No question about it: you're going to love JVC's KD-AVX1. It's an in-dash DVD receiver with a 3" LCD monitor built right into its motorized, fold-down faceplate. It offers up a great blend of eye-catching aesthetics and innovative technology that'll keep you entertained whether you're driving cross-country or just camped out in your driveway.

Your DVD videos will show up right on the monitor. You can only watch them while you're parked, but you can always use the screen to display digital images you've uploaded from disc. The audio/video input's selectable modes let you mount a backup camera on your vehicle and connect it to the receiver, so you can use the monitor to give you a better view of what's behind you.

Like most DVD receivers, the KD-AVX1 plays your DVDs, standard CDs, MP3s, and WMAs. But here's the best part: Giga MP3 technology lets you load up to 100 hours of your favorite MP3s or WMAs on a single recordable DVD, and the KD-AVX1 will play them. That means you can store your entire music collection on just a few discs.

And finding your favorite tracks quickly is no problem, thanks to the intuitive front-panel keys (much like PDA controls) and helpful menu system. The combination of the two makes total system control quite easy, and contributes to the elegant style of the receiver.

Strong built-in power works with 24-bit digital-to-audio converters to deliver powerful, dynamic playback. Then the 7-band Intelli-EQ takes over, giving you the power to sculpt the sound to fit your vehicle's acoustics just the way you like it to.

The audio/video input lets you connect another source, such as your favorite game console. An audio/video output sends a signal to an external monitor and set of wireless headphones. Dual-zone capability means that the folks in back can enjoy a movie while you listen to another source up front.

Add a JVC SIRIUS tuner, antenna, and subscription for the endless variety of satellite radio. And three sets of 5-volt preamp outputs send a clean signal to any external amplifiers in your system. A wireless remote is also included for convenient operation.

General Features

3" TFT LCD Monitor: This unit features a 3" TFT LCD monitor built into the motorized, fold-down faceplate. The LCD serves as a video monitor and system information display.

Intelligent EQ (7-Band iEQ): This model has "Hard Rock", "R&B", "Pop", "Jazz", "Dance", "Country", "Reggae", "Classic", "User 1", "User 2", "User 3", and "Flat" preset EQ curves. "User 1", "User 2", and "User 3" 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 -5dB to +5dB in 1dB increments.

MP3/WMA Playback: The KD-AVX1 can play MP3/WMA files that have been recorded on CD-R and CD-RW discs. The disc must be recorded in one of the following formats: ISO 9660 Level 1/Level 2, Joliet or Romeo. MP3 files with a bit rate from 32-320 kbps and WMA files with a bit rate from 32-192 kbps are supported. Each disc can have a maximum of 1100 files and 250 folders, with a maximum of 999 files per folder.

Dual Zone Capable: The 2nd Audio Output allows you to route all A/V entertainment to an optional back seat monitor and headphone system, allowing front seat passengers to enjoy independent CD or radio programming.

SIRIUS Satellite Radio Controls: This unit can control an optional SIRIUS Satellite tuner (item #607SIRJVC1). In addition to the SIRIUS tuner, you will need an antenna and subscription in order to receive SIRIUS Satellite Radio programming.

Amplifier Gain Control: When you are using the KD-AVX1 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.

Source Naming: The KD-AVX1 allows you to assign names of up to 16 characters for AM and FM stations (30 station maximum), and a name up to 16 characters for a connected external component. You can also assign names of up to 32 characters for CDs (including a connected CD changer, but not MP3/WMA or CD Text discs--30 disc maximum).

+10/-10 and +100/-100 Buttons: When selecting CD tracks or MP3/WMA/JPEG file within a folder, you can jump ahead or jump back to the nearest track/file number that is a multiple of 10 by using the "+10" or "-10" buttons on the remote. For example, when selecting track/file 32 from track/file 6, you can press the "+10" button three times (>10, >20, >30) to get to 30, then the "track up" button twice (>31, >32) to get to track/file 32. For MP3/WMA/JPEG files with a number greater than 99, use the +100/-100 buttons.

Subwoofer Output: This unit has 2-volt gold-plated subwoofer preamp outputs (the front and rear preamp outputs are 5-volt outputs) on a 6" pigtail. The subwoofer output has independent level control, adjustable from 00 to 08, and a selectable low-pass crossover. You can select a cutoff frequency of 55, 85, or 125 Hz.

High-pass Filter: The front and rear speakers have an adjustable high-pass filter that can be set to 55, 85, or 125 Hz.

Audio/Video Input: The audio/video input can be set to one of the following modes:

  • Audio + Video: choose when connecting an A/V component like a VCR
  • Audio: choose when connecting an audio component like a cassette deck
  • Camera: use this mode when connecting an optional rear view camera
  • Camera Rev: the mirror image of the rear view through the rear view camera is automatically displayed on the monitor

Compatibility with Optional AUX Input Adapter: The optional JVC Line Input Adapter (item # 105KSU57) may be used to provide an auxiliary input on this unit. Item 105KSU57 connects to the CD changer input on this unit. When the aux input adapter is connected to this unit, a CD changer cannot be connected.

Dimmer: This unit is equipped with a wire that JVC calls an illumination lead, however, it acts as a dimmer lead. The dimmer can be set to Off (normal brightness at all times), Auto (display window automatically dims when your car head lights are turned on), or On (display is always dimmed). Also, this unit has a timer that allows you to turn the dimmer on for a period of time each day. The timer allows you to select a start time and an end time for the dimmer.

Note: The amount of dimming is fixed, it cannot be adjusted, and the illumination wire must be connected for Auto operation.

DVD/Video CD Features

MP3/WMA Playback (Giga MP3): The KD-AVX1 can play MP3/WMA files that have been recorded on DVD-ROM, DVD-R, and DVD-RW discs. The disc must be compliant with UDF-Bridge format. Discs must be created on a computer with a DVD burner. The DVD burner software application must be compliant with UDF-Bridge format.

Note: DVDs recorded on stand alone consumer DVD burners are not compatible with this unit.

Direct Access: Using the supplied remote, you can directly access any title or chapter on a DVD, and any track on a Video CD.

Slow Motion: When playing a DVD or Video CD, there are five slow motion speeds in both directions (1/32, 1/16, 1/8, 1/4, and 1/2).

Zoom: When playing DVDs, Video CDs or JPEG files, you can enlarge the picture using the zoom feature. You can choose one of six zoom settings. Once the image is enlarged, you can move the image around on the screen.

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.

You cannot use the KD-MK series CD changers with this unit, even with an adapter.

Inputs and Outputs Notes

Optical Digital Output: The optical digital output on the rear of the unit allows you to connect an optional digital audio processor.

Audio/Video Output: The 2nd Audio Output (left and right RCA audio jacks) and Video Output (RCA composite video jack) allow you to connect an optional back seat monitor and headphone system.
