Video: Valor ITS-702W in-dash DVD receiver
Heads up!Welcome to this article from the Crutchfield archives. Have fun reading it, but be aware that the information may be outdated and links may be broken.
Robert and Ken, Crutchfield car stereo experts, illustrate some of the cool features of Valor's ITS-702W DVD receiver.
Ken: Hi, I'm Ken and this is Robert. And what are we looking at today, Robert?
Robert: Today, Ken, we have the Valor ITS-702W in-dash DVD receiver.
Ken: Nice. I noticed it's a retractable screen, right?
Robert: It is retractable. When you don't need the screen, or when you park, the screen folds in out of the way. And in addition to it being retractable, it is also a touchscreen, so you have some touchscreen control to it.
Ken: Nice. It plays CDs and DVDs, of course.
Robert: CDs, DVDs, discs loaded with MP3 and WMA files.
Ken: And I can see more, too. It's got A/V in, right? Auxiliary inputs.
Robert: Yep, you can hook up another piece of equipment.
Ken: Rear camera — nice and safe for backing up, AM/FM, of course, DVDs, and iPod.
Robert: It includes an iPod dock connecting cable. So as you can see, we have one plugged up right there.
Ken: Hooks right up, huh?
Robert: Yep, and with that, bring up that source screen again, and see how it works our iPod. It gives you a really nice display format so you can see what's in your iPod.
Ken: You don't have to use the iPod at all. You just do it right from the face.
Robert: That's exactly right.
Ken: Nice. So how's the video performance?
Robert: Well, it looks really good. Let's take a look at what we have here.
Ken: Yeah, we should probably mention you shouldn't watch the TV or the DVD player while you're driving, right?
Robert: Most definitely. And in fact, you can't. You have to have the parking brake engaged for the video playback to function.
Ken: Oh, there we go.
Robert: And as you can see, it's a really nice, clear picture.
Robert: One good thing about this unit that makes it so popular is the price point. It comes in at about half the price of a lot of other in-dash video units, and it seems to be a success.
Ken: What do our customers say? We get customer feedback on models.
Robert: They're really happy with it overall. It carries five stars out of five rating on our website. And one thing customers repeatedly say is how good it sounds. So the internal power supply is really good.
Ken: Fantastic. And it's from Valor. And what's the model again?
Robert: The ITS-702W.
Robert: See you later.
