Highlights

Dynamic GUI

Various information including time, photos, album art images, or iDatalink Maestro and more, can be displayed on the home screen in a big, easy-to-view way. Swiping the monitor with two fingers lets you split the screen or change the information window.

3-Camera Input

*Blind spot viewing requires the iDatalink interface and works with compatible vehicles.

Live Wallpaper

Synchronize background visual and color with music.

Clear Resistive Touch Panel Display

The clear resistive touch panel with high transparency and high luminance provides bright images with vivid colors.

SOUND OPTIMIZATION

From advanced technologies that enable playback of premium High-Resolution Audio sources, to the vast array of sound adjustment functions to fine-tune and customize the acoustics exactly the way you want — count on JVC to deliver the music to your ears.

High-Resolution Audio Playback

You can enjoy playback of 96kHz/24bit audio which contains about 3 times the musical information of music CDs (44.1kHz/16bit), or even 192kHz/24bit High-Resolution Audio files with their approx. 6.5 times data volume. With high sound quality approaching the original master recording itself, you will experience the presence and ambience of a tune the way CD simply cannot.

K2 Technology for Enhanced Digital Sound Quality

K2 is a JVC original technology that reproduces the original master sound by expanding the frequency range. For example, K2 will expand the digital data of the audio CD recorded at 44.1kHz to 192 kHz. It is also possible to recreate the high-frequency range above 20kHz that is cut during the CD formatting.

Time Alignment

By selecting the speaker type and the distance to the center of the listening position, the receiver will automatically adjust the timing of the sound output from each of the speakers so that the sound from each of the speakers will arrive exactly at the same time to the listening position.

Sound Response

Cancels time distortion to create clearer sound during the playback of compressed audio files.

Space Enhancement

Space Enhancement is a virtual surround technology using 2 speakers. Just select the vehicle size, and the receiver automatically adjusts the sound effectively.

Sound Lift

Virtually manipulate the height of the speakers by adjusting the sound frequencies.

Volume Link EQ

Volume Link EQ boosts specific frequencies in the audio signal to compensate for the impact of road noise. It boosts frequencies in the music that are affected by road noise.

13-Band Equalizer

Use the 13-Band Equalizer to manually adjust the sound to your taste.

Bluetooth® Wireless Technology

2 Phones Full-Time Connection

You can connect two phones full time via Bluetooth, with secure and simple pairing. Calls to either phone can be received by a push of a key on the receiver.

iPhone®/Android Bluetooth Automatic Pairing

Just connect your iPhone or Android device via USB and the automatic Bluetooth pairing function will work to complete the pairing. No complicated manual procedure to worry about.

Bluetooth Voice Recognition

Improved Sound Quality with HFP 1.7 Wideband Speech

Improved sound quality thanks to HD Voice contributes to a higher level of voice recognition accuracy.

Bluetooth AVRCP1.6 for Versatile Song Selection

In addition to repeat and random playback of music files, you can also easily search for songs using the browsing function. Just look for and choose the song you want to hear from the folder name and song name lists.

JVC Streaming DJ
