Great radio

  • Summary: This was installed into an old Toyota sedan. It works well with music plugged into its USB port. The CD slot and the radio work well. It seems substantial enough.

Sounds great. Button layout sucks.

Headybrew, Amazon
22 January 2014
  • Summary: Sounds great. Plenty of power and good clean sound, even though I'm using crappy factory speakers. Using the button/knob to switch between preset channels is awful. You could die in a car crash trying to turn the knob just the right amount to get the right preset number. Who ever designed that setup should be made to stand on their heads in a pile of cow manure for all eternity. And for some reason the clock is fast. Every 1 to 2 months I have to reset it back 5 minutes.

Love this deck

CJ, Amazon
1 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought this deck years ago (I've since sold the car) and it worked great for me! I had 2 12" subs powered by 600w each, and I liked the ability to control the sub output separately. Never had any issues with this thing!

Modern stereo at great value

Ralph E. Keller, Amazon
19 October 2011
  • Summary: I really like this stereo. High Definition radio stations usually scroll the name of the artist. If you don't have a great signal from the HD station, you may experience an annoying echo. You will probable be able to get HD stations that you couldn't possible be able to get without an HD radio. I use the usb (flashdrive) port a lot more than I thought I would. You will be able to find a light color that pretty much matches your car's dash lights.

It works, but needs improvement.

mike, Amazon

  • Summary: So, in terms of positive things I can say about it, it plays music. That's its main goal. I kind of expect a car stereo to just work that way. I got this one for its iPhone compatibility, which works, but definitely needs improvement. 1) It automatically plays whatever music is in my iPhone's music library. When iOS 4 came out, the phone got a whole lot more inherent compatibility with apps like Pandora, but the stereo had no way of keeping up.

Avoid!

Me "ajs-bookseller", Amazon
27 January 2011
  • Summary: I have owned this product for less than a year and have had nothing but hassles. It is very non-user-friendly and unintuitive. My iPod no longer worked with the device after about 9 months. I called the number listed on the JVC manual inside the package and was told that this was due to an upgrade in software by Apple. Yet my husband's older iPod and my daughter's newer iPod did not work either.

Nice Car Stereo deck

motodude199, Ebay
7 September 2010
  • Summary: Pros: Great sound, It uses a silicon based digital front end IC making it sensitive FM tuner that I've found w/ HD, 7band EQ, USB input perfect for those that don't want to fumble with changing CD's while driving(safety first), just rip your CD's to a flash drive and your good to go. Multi-color LCD back lighting, Front AUX input, IPOD/EXT/CD changer inputs with optional adapters, HD and CD Tagging. Cons: None Excellent choice With pricing around $150 USD or less.

Excellent, fanciest car radio ever owned

Randy Bell "computer enthusiast", Amazon
11 July 2010
  • Summary: JVC KD-HDR50 30K Color-Illumination Single-DIN HD Radio CD Receiver with Remote Control USB 2.0 for iPod/iPhone is an outstanding deal, especially if you get it from an associated dealer (Sixth Avenue Elecronics, see the site, 6ave.com, on the web) as I did. I got mine for only 122 bucks, free shipping, outstanding deal!
