About the JVC KD-G320
JVC knows you're looking for flexibility from your car audio system, so they packed the KD-G320 CD player with all sorts of performance and playback features. And, thanks to its clean, silver faceplate and rotary control knob, this is one entertainment hub that will fit in with just about any interior style.
The stout internal amplifier ensures powerful, clean sound, and a superior 24-bit digital-to-analog converter rare in this price range makes your CDs sound better, more faithful to the original recordings. You get six preset sound curves, treble and bass controls, and a loudness contour to adjust the sound to fit your vehicle. And you can command most functions from anywhere in the car with the wireless remote.
Not only will the KD-G320 play back your MP3- and WMA-loaded recordable discs, you can even connect JVC's optional iPod interface for full iPod control right from the faceplate. Satellite radio controls make it easy to add 120-plus channels of music, news, sports, and entertainment to the party.
Two sets of preamp outputs offer convenient connections for your external amplifiers and subs. You even get subwoofer level and frequency controls so you can adjust your bass settings on the fly, without ever leaving the driver's seat.

MP3 Playback: The KD-G320 can play MP3 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. You can directly access folders numbered 01-12 (they must be assigned two-digit numbers when recorded). Each disc can have a maximum of 8 folder hierarchies, 200 folders, and no more than a total of 512 files and/or folders on each disc.
Satellite Radio Ready: You can connect a satellite radio tuner to the KD-G320 in a couple of ways. The unit is directly compatible with the SIRIUS SIR-JVC1 Satellite Tuner for JVC (item # 607SIRJVC1). The Terk XMDirect universal XM Satellite Radio tuner (209XMD1000) can be connected to and controlled by the head unit when used with the XMDirect Smart Adapter for JVC (209XMDJVC1).
Note: In addition to the optional satellite tuner, you will also need the proper antenna and a subscription to SIRIUS or XM Satellite Radio.
Custom Equalizer (cEQ): In addition to manual bass and treble settings (-6dB to +6dB @ 100Hz and 10kHz), this unit also has six selectable preset tone control and loudness setting combinations. Each of the sound modes may be adjusted to your preference and stored in memory. The preset Custom Equalizer modes are:
- Rock: Bass = +3, Treble = +1, Loudness = On
- Classic: Bass = +1, Treble = -2, Loudness = Off
- Pops: Bass = +4, Treble = +1, Loudness = Off
- Hip Hop: Bass = +2, Treble = 0, Loudness = On
- Jazz: Bass = +2, Treble = +3, Loudness = Off
- User: Bass = 0, Treble = 0, Loudness = Off
Amplifier Gain Control: When you are using the KD-G320 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.
Switchable Rear Channel/Subwoofer Output: The rear pair of preamp outputs can be set to "Rear" for full range output with full fading capability, or a non-fading "Woofer" output with a low-pass filter and output level adjustment. When "Woofer" is selected, you can adjust the frequency of the low-pass filter (90, 135, or 180 Hz) and the subwoofer gain (0 to +8). When "Rear" is chosen, these preamp outputs have a voltage of 2.5 V. When "Woofer" is chosen, the voltage is 2.0 V.
Preferred Setting Mode: By activating the Preferred Setting Mode (PSM), you can set the clock, choose the time zone, select the dimmer mode, select the external component type (changer or line input), turn on/off ID3 Tag display, switch between US standard and European tuning spacing, and set the Amplifier Gain control (high/low).
Direct Track Access: You can directly access CD tracks 1-12 by pressing the station preset buttons. If a preset button is pressed for less than 1 second, the track corresponding to the number on the preset button is selected (for tracks 1-6). When a preset button is pressed for more than 1 second, the track corresponding to the number above the preset button is accessed (for tracks 7-12).
Clock Display: While playing a CD, you can switch between the clock display and the CD elapsed time display (the track number always appears). While listening to the radio you can switch between the clock display and the station frequency display. When you press the Display button during power off, the unit will turn on, display the clock for 5 seconds, then shut off. This can be done with the ignition on or off.
Dimmer: This unit is equipped with a dimmer that can manually be set to Off (normal brightness at all times) or On (display is always dimmed).
Optional Interface Adapter for iPod: The optional KS-PD100 adapter allows an iPod digital music player with a dock connector to be hooked up to and controlled by the KD-G320. You'll be able to scroll through all your playlists, albums, artists, genres, and composers directly from the head unit. Song titles and other file information show up right on the head unit display. The iPod is also charged while it is connected to the KD-G320.
Compatibility: This unit is equipped with JVC's "J-Link" CD changer control system. It is fully compatible with JVC's CD/MP3 changer (257CHX1500). Other JVC CH-X series CD changers (except CH-X99 and CH-X100) can be controlled directly by this head unit, however, they are not compatible with MP3 discs. You cannot use the KD-MK series CD changers with this unit, even with an adapter.
Compatibility with Optional Input Adapter: An optional JVC Line Input Adapter (item # 105KSU57) or Aux Input Adapter (item # 105KSU58) may be used to provide an additional auxiliary 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.
