About the iRV iRV66
This multi-function remote gives your passengers total control over the entertainment action.
RVs pose particular challenges for audio installations. Their interior space is much larger than a car or truck, and this makes it difficult to get sound to every corner of the vehicle. iRV designed their iRV66 DVD receiver to meet these challenges and provide a fully featured entertainment system for your RV. This versatile receiver features an AM/FM tuner and a CD/DVD drive, along with an SD card slot and a USB port that'll handle all your non-disc entertainment.
The faceplate also features an HDMI port that's great as a gaming and laptop interface, plus a minijack A/V input and two rear HDMI ports for other audio and video sources. You can control the digital 5.1 surround sound through on app on your iOS or Android device. And to top it off, you can stream audio from your Bluetooth devices.
Three listening zones
The iRV66 features 200 watts of total peak power sent to three different speaker zones, so you can set up three different listening areas in your RV. You also get three HDMI outputs, two RCA outputs, and two audio inputs for setting up outboard video screens, along with two speaker-level sub outputs for controlling those all-important low notes. And iRV includes a full-featured wireless remote control so your passengers can run the show.
The combination of this iRV66 receiver and the iRV66-ACWH wiring harness is a plug-and-play replacement for the Concertone ZX800, ZX700, ZX690 and Genesis Technologies GT3.0 receivers often found in RVs.
If you're looking for a serious entertainment center to accompany you on your travels, you just found it.

iRV iRV66 reviews
Great replacement awesome sound. If replacing genesis unit I would advise the optional wiring adapter makes installation a breeze.

Great piece of equipment. Works as advertised and truly is "plug and play". The Genesis 3.0 provides you with a plethora of wires for various audio and video connections that are taken care of with the "plugs" via the power adapter. I did not have to use the available RCAs for anything. If I have one complaint it is that the wiring diagram needs to be more detailed and there needs to be a terms list for the various buttons. I have a FM input for the Genesis that I did not know went into the "hole" at the bottom of the unit until I called Crutchfield tech. Also, it took a page or two to figure out what "BT" stood for. These are just little things that could be easily solved with more detail in the manual.
Pros: Easy install; true plug and play; great sound and picture.
Cons: Manual could be more detailed, especially wiring.

This is a replacement for a Concertone unit that was a real piece of $@#!. had to use the remote to do anything as the buttons on the unit didn't work correctly. It was actually a replacement for the 1st Concertone unit that failed in the first month. The sound is good, but will be better when I install the 6 1/2" kicker speakers to replace the old ones. It was nice to find a direct replacement so I didn't have to customize a panel. Took me 10 minutes to wire it up and start cranking!
Pros: Easy Install
Cons: None yet

Had to give it a 4 star rating instead of a 5 star rating because it does not have XM/Sirius connection

Easy to install with optional cable. For the price it probably should have had bluray, it is 2017! An additional audio input for my XM would have been nice too. Lights are really bright at night. Sound is OK. 3 sets of speakers and different sound levels for each of them, may be the speaker set up and not the iRV66, I'll never know. Delivered quickly.
Pros: Easy install IF you order the OPTIONAL cable.
Cons: No bluray

I'm sure the unit is great. But since Crutchfield neglected to inform me I needed an adapter to complete the installation and the adapter is back ordered for over a month. I gotta say boo hoo Crutchfield ??
Pros: None yet
Cons: Back ordered adapter with no delivery date

My 5th wheel came with the concert sound system with 3 speaker zones including surround sound system, and it failed about our 3rd trip, had it repaired and it lasted 2 more trips, and it died. Replaced it with the IRV66 which is the replacement for the concertone so basically it was plug and play, and what a improvement, this unit sounds so much better especially the surround sound not to mention the blue tooth connection for cell phone operation for all controls. We play our music from our iphone through this system it's great. Another thing connecting the tv to this system with hdmi is a snap and watching movies is exceptional. We love it.
Pros: Easy installation, easy operation, sounds exceptionally good. It can be used with the tv or you have the option to use the tv speakers.

We purchased a Rockwood Ultra Lite 5th wheel with one of these installed. It never worked correctly and the dealer wouldn't fix it. We couldn't contact the iRV company directly and thought we were just stuck with a useless product. Found Crutchfield's web site and took a leap of faith that their version of the product worked. I received the product in two days and installed it immediately. It works to perfection. Anyone who owns one of these that has had problems and the dealer won't or can't fix it should bite the bullet and purchase from Crutchfied.

The iRV66 was a replacement for the original ZX700 that came installed in our Sabre 5th wheel. The iRV66 was shipped quickly, package adequately, and arrived in good condition. As confirmed by Crutchfield technician, the iRV66 did fit in the cutout the old unit fit in with even the screw holes being aligned so mounting was no problem. The iRV66 is much easier to use than the ZX700 and appears to be of high quality. I say this because I have not used it extensively at this time (other than a function check of all the settings and operations) but I will update my review if/when necessary. Because the ZX700 had different wire connection clip plugs, I needed the RV66-ACWH adapter harness for the iRV66 which then made this a truly "plug and play" replacement. This harness is not included when ordering the iRV66 so confirm if the harness is required for your specific needs. I am very satisfied with the excellent technical help I received while trying to find this as a replacement and would recommend Crutchfield for future electronic needs.
Pros: Quick shipment, good quality, easy installation.
Cons: None at this time.
