Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

this is the most awesome receiver I have ever owned. I will never own a receiver without usb connectivity again. It is the way of the future in music. cds/dvds are going the way of the 8 track, hard drives will be the norm for car units in the future, yet usb connections will bridge the gap for some time to come. my only disappointment with this unit is it will not read mp3 players, but that is a small price to pay for the option of using thumb drives to play your latest or most played music. flash drives are inexpensive now and make it very easy to change song lists any time or anywhere(friends houses, laptops, work, school) no need to burn a cd/dvd and let it get scratched or melted. this unit does everything well also, excellent clarity from all formats, and the price is incredibly cheap for this quailty



"Monster Loaded With Features"

JohnNY from Long Island, New York on 12/31/2006

I've gone through about 6 head units in the past year,<BR>and the JVC is the winner for me. It will read and play<BR>anything you load into it. The usb fires up quick for<BR>your ipod or Mp3 player. I have a 512 usb drive that<BR>I use for extra music, and it works great. The best part about the unit is all the extra things you can hook up to it. I hooked up two screens for myself, and<BR>my kids. It plays your dvd's or divx movies with no<BR>skipping. I will finish by saying that this unit is a great buy. You will not be disappointed.



Great combination of sound and features

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was looking for a receiver to replace the poor sounding stock receiver in my WRX, and I also wanted to find a unit that would allow me to utilize my MP3 files that I usually have on my home machine and listen to through my Xbox360. My choice came down to the Sony Xplode with the built in flash memory and this JVC. I'm very impressed with the JVC, and I can safely say I won't bother keeping CDs in the car anymore. It's so easy to burn a bunch of CDs onto a DVD and have a nice selection of music in one place without having to change discs all the time. Also, being able to plug a USB key into the unit to listen to new music is awesome. It's so easy to use a USB key to move things between my MP3 server in the house and the car. Also, the USB key indexes the music on it pretty much immediately while the DVD player takes a couple of minutes to index, although the USB key always starts from the first song in the first folder while the DVD remembers where it is. The only thing that's a little weird is if you insert the USB key while the DVD is playing, the DVD actually keeps playing in the background so when you go back to listen to it, it's in a completely different place then where you left it. I would have expected it to stop the DVD player when a USB key is inserted. Minor design flaw.<BR>The unit has made my stock speakers sound good enough where I might consider not replacing them now, and the multiple inputs in the rear of the unit are awesome and allow me to hook up my Stiletto very easily.<BR>Great purchase for the price!




danny from Yakima , Wa on 9/15/2006

All I can say is "awesome". <BR><BR>This is exactly what I have been waiting for. The USB device works like magic. I will not have to carry cd's with me ever again. Using a small adapter I can use all the compact flash cards and secure digital cards that I already have for my cameras. The radio easily moves from folder to folder so I can have hundreds of songs at my fingertips. Just drag and drop albums onto a thumb drive and the music is ready.<BR><BR>I also love the audio in and out provided on the back of the radio. I can hook just about anything up to this thing. I use my Rio MP3 player and USB thumb drivers almost exclusory now. I will soon be looking for a home stereo with USB compatibility. <BR><BR>And for the price - It is a steel....<BR><BR>The only thing I would change is smaller characters to ease reading of songs and albums without all the scrolling.<BR><BR>I love music and this radio puts me closer to all my favorites. This device is easy to use and sounds great. Good job JVC!!!<BR><BR><BR>Thank you Crutchfield. Why shop anywhere else....<BR>




lolygagger from Miami on 7/25/2006

I bought this head unit because of its versatility and I haven't been disappointed. It plays more formats on more media types than any other unit on the market to date. It plays uncompressed wav burned on DVD+R and DVD+R DL, which no other player does that I'm aware of. My buddy just spent $1700 on an Alpine DVD head unit and it wont play wav or DL media. I can get around 17 cd's on a DL disk in wav format or around 80 in vbr 250 to 320 kbps mp3's. <BR><BR>Sound quality is quite good the EQ is simple but useful.. The display is very simple but fancy displays add considerable cost to a head unit. I like that the just concentrated on functionality and not bling. You can always hook up a monitor if you need more. I have only the head unit but a monitor does give you more playback selection options according to the manual. I read other reviews on the 6200 and they said it resumes playback from the beginning of the song when you power back up this is not true with my unit they may have updated the firmware, I don't know but mine begins playback exactly where it left off. <BR><BR>The only thing I've found so far that bugs me is taking up to 2 minutes to read a full disk. It seems the more files you have on the disk the longer it takes to read when inserted or powered on. The wav disks only take around 20 sec to read but fill up a DL disk with mp3's and you'll be down the block a way's before you here music. But that's a small price to pay for being able to carry around my entire music collection on 4 DL dvd's. <BR>

General Features

Satellite Radio Ready: You can connect a satellite radio tuner to the KD-DV6200 in several 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). A plug-n-play satellite receiver can also be connected to the line input.

Note: In addition to the optional satellite tuner, you will also need the proper antenna and a subscription to SIRIUS or XM Satellite Radio.

Intelligent Equalizer (iEQ): There are six factory preset equalizer curves; Rock, Classic, Pops, Hip Hop, Jazz, and User. Each of the presets can be customized by adjusting any of the seven EQ bands between -5 and +5. One customized curve can be programmed into the User preset.

USB Port: The front-panel USB port allows you to play MP3 and WMA files stored on a USB memory device. One partition USB devices less than 4GB are compatible and MP3 files with a bit rate from 32-320 kbps and WMA files with a bit rate from 5-320 kbps are supported.

Crossover: The crossover point on the subwoofer output can be set to 85, 125, or 165 Hz. There is also high pass crossover which affects the speaker level and front and rear line level outputs. The high pass crossover point is the same as the subwoofer frequency, or it can be turned of so those outputs are full range.

Amplifier Gain Control: When you are using the KD-DV6200 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 Pwr 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 Pwr and the volume control will range from 0 to 50.

Station Naming: The KD-DV6200 allows you to assign names of up to 8 characters for AM and FM stations (30 station maximum).

CD Naming: You can also name up to 30 CDs with 32 character (or less) names. The CD name is displayed when it's played in the built-in CD player or a compatible CD changer.

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).

Source Volume: The relative volume of each audio source can be adjusted and saved so the volume doesn't change when you switch inputs.

+10/-10 and +100/-100 Buttons: When selecting CD tracks or an MP3 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 tracks with a number greater than 99, use the +100/-100 buttons.

Rear Panel Auxiliary Input: A rear panel auxiliary input (left and right RCA audio jacks) is provided to allow the connection of a portable audio source.

Compatibility with Optional Input Adapter: An optional JVC Line Input Adapter (item # 105KSU57) or Aux Input Adapter (item # 257KSU58) 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.

Optional Interface Adapter for iPod: The optional KS-PD100 adapter allows an iPod digital with a dock connector to be hooked up to and controlled by the KD-DV6200. 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-DV6200.

Dual Zone: The KD-DV6200's dual zone system allows you to output the DVD/CD player signal to the line level video and 2nd audio outputs while playing another source through the speaker and front/rear/sub line outputs. When the Dual Zone System is activated the DVD/CD player is controlled only with the remote control. The main zone is controlled using the buttons on the face of the radio.

Clock 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.

DVD/CD Features

MP3/WMA/WAV Playback: The KD-DV6200 can play MP3/WMA/WAV files that have been recorded on CD-R/-RW, DVD-R/-RW, and DVD+R/+RW discs. Discs must be created on a computer with a DVD or CD burner. Compatible bit rates range from 32 kbps to 320 kbps. Each disc can have a maximum of 3500 files and 250 folders, with a maximum of 999 files per folder.

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

DivX/MPEG: You can play DivX and MPEG video files with 720 x 480 pixel (30 fps) or 720 x 576 pixel (25 fps) resolution.

Direct Access: You can directly access any chapter on a DVD and any track on a CD. Chapter/Track 1-12 can be accessed on the face of the radio, any chapter/track can be accessed with the remote.

Multi-Angle Display: This function allows you to choose the viewing angle of scenes that were shot from a number of different angles.

Random Play: When playing an Audio CD you can play the tracks in random order. In the case of an MP3 or WMA CD, either all the files or just the files within the current folder can be played in random order.

Zoom: When playing DVDs or Video CDs, 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.
