iRV iRV6500BT

Guest from Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada on 8/16/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

If there was a way to put a minus sign in front of the stars I would. It is a terrible unit. I didn't even have it a year when the cd player crapped out. Trying to find a Video format that the machine is "happy" to play has been an exercise in futility. I would never recommend this equipment to anyone. Stick to a reliable brand.

Selecting a source (MODE) not operational

David C from Grand Junction, CO on 12/28/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I received the iRV6500BT and installed it in my travel trailer to upgrade the old cassette / stereo system. Installation was fairly simple however once powered up the unit would not switch modes between tuner, disc, usb, sd, digi-port, bt play, aux in, and av in as the instruction manual calls for. It would only select following modes: tuner, iPod, BTplay, aux in, and av in then repeat the same sources. With assistance from Crutchfield tech support for an hour, we tried everything that we could to get a disc to play. Afterwards I tried the Bluetooth and paired to my iPhone, which worked fine. The sound functions and remote unit all appeared to work well. The following day I received a call from tech support, and he had corresponded with iRV, who indicated the unit was defective. I get to wait another week now for a new unit to be shipped....by the way, this was a discount dollar off 'open box' unit, and I specifically asked before ordering, what that meant in terms of quality as there were no indications that it had been installed or used upon receipt. Will I ever order something 'open box' again? NOT

Disc Player: The iRV6500BT's built-in disc player will support playback of CD-audio and DVD-video discs. It also supports playback of MP3 and WMA music files recorded onto CD-R/RW discs. In addition, the unit will play back finalized DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW discs. DVD-video will be played back on a connected external monitor (sold separately).

SD Card Slot: The unit's front-panel SD card slot supports playback of MP3/WMA music files, MP4 video files, and JPEG photo files loaded onto a SD or SDHC memory card (up to 32GB). Photos and video will be played back on a connected external monitor (sold separately).

USB Port: The iRV6500BT's front-panel USB (type-A) port supports playback of MP3/WMA music files, MP4 video files, and JPEG photo files stored on a USB mass storage class device, like your USB thumbdrive (up to 1TB). Your USB thumbdrive must be formatted in FAT or FAT32. Photos and video will be played back on a connected external monitor (sold separately). The unit's USB port (5V/0.5A) will also charge many USB-enabled devices. 

Bluetooth Audio Streaming: The unit features built-in Bluetooth (v2.0), so you can wirelessly stream stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or tablet (like Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad or Android) to the iRV6500BT. From the iRV6500BT's front-panel controls, you can operate basic playback functions such as Play/Pause and Previous/Next Track. Advanced music navigation and song/artist information is still done from your Bluetooth-enabled mobile device.

Note: This unit does not support Bluetooth hands-free phone communication. This unit may not be compatible with all Bluetooth audio devices.

AV Input: The iRV6500BT is outfitted with a front-panel AV input which consists of a 3.5mm minijack. This allows connection of an external portable audio/video device. A minijack-to-RCA adapter cable is provided for added convenience. Audio is heard through the speakers connected to the iRV6500BT, while video is seen through an external monitor (sold separately) you have connected to the iRV6500BT.

Dual Composite Video Outputs: The unit's dual composite video outputs allow you to playback video from the iRV6500BT's built-in disc player, USB port, SD-card slot, or AV input on an external monitor (sold separately). The two composite video outputs share a stereo RCA output.

AM/FM Tuner: The unit's built-in AM/FM tuner provides 3 FM bands and 2 AM bands. Each band can be manually or auto programmed with 8 stations presets; giving you a total of 24 FM presets and 16 AM presets. The unit also offers manual tuning, seek tuning, and preset scan.  You can select "Local" tuning in areas with strong signals to let the radio stop at only strong stations during manual tuning. Select "Distant" tuning in area with weak signal to listen to all stations. When reception of an FM station is week, listening quality can be improved by switching to "Mono" mode. The unit can be switched to USA or European tuning.

3 Speaker Zones: The iRV6500VT provides 3 stereo speaker zones. 45 watts (peak) x 6 channels is distributed between the zones. You can listen to all zones or turn on only one or two of the zones. The same source will be played back in each zone and the volume level is the same for each zone. The head unit is also fitted with a 2Ch/2V RCA output for adding an external amplifier.

  • EQ Modes: The unit offers preset EQ modes to tailor the sound to your type of music and taste. Choose from Flat, Classic, Pop, Rock, or Off.
  • Bass & Treble: When the preset EQ mode is set to "Off", you can adjust the head unit's bass & treble manually (-10 to +10).
  • Loudness: The Loudness function enhances the unit's bass & treble at lower volumes.
  • Key Beep: A beep sound indicates button operation. This can be turned on or off.

[ Ryan  Jul 05, 2018 ]  Staff
Q
I see in the specs that the power for this unit is 45 watts x 6. Does this mean that each individual channel is receiving 45 watts or is the wattage divided between the channels? 45/6 = 7.5 watts/ channel.
[ Ricky  Dec 15, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
The built-in amp is rated to produce 45 watts x 6 channels; so it can power (up to) 6 speakers with 45 watts per speaker. Hope that helps!
[ Larry  Dec 19, 2017 ]  Staff

Q
Is there a universal remote that will work with the iRV system?
[ Heather  Sep 19, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
The iRV6500BT comes packaged with a 40 button infrared remote for controlling the basic functions of the receiver so, a "universal" remote is not required.

Q
DOES THIS UNIT HAVE AN ANTENNA?
[ P  Jun 26, 2017 ]

A
Thanks for your question. There is no antenna included. You can check to see what comes with the unit on the main product page under "What's in the Box". If you need further help with a compatible antenna I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer your question.

Q
Is there any way to add a sleep time on this? I like to play the radio as I go to sleep, but would like it to turn off in an hour or so.
[ Rick  Mar 24, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
The DVD receiver does not offer a sleep timer or a way to add one with a separate accessory. If you're connecting it to an external TV/monitor, it may have a sleep timer you can use for the display but the stereo will not power off when the TV/monitor does.
