I didn't really believe in HD radio

Abner Barthel, Amazon
11 February 2014
  • Summary: Until I bought this unit. I decided to try the HD radio, without having to buy a separate unit. This receiver works great. It is really nice, with a dot matrix display. Unfortunately the display is difficult to read in direct sunlight. Fortunately that is the only flaw I can find on this unit.

Great piece for the price!

S. Aron, Amazon

  • Summary: I love the feature set on this thing. I bought it for the HD radio. Here in LA there are tons of HD radio stations and it makes radio totally listenable again. The ability to play MP3 CDs drops the clutter in the car immensely. An aux jack is great, I play mp3s off my phone on it.

Exactly What I Wanted

Bruce, Amazon
30 September 2011
  • Summary: The JVC KD-HDR30 was a Christmas present from my wife to replace the burned out factory unit in a 1993 F150 truck. It was exactly what I wanted, with HD, CD (MP3 & WMA), decent controls, and sound that filled the cab perfectly.

Review from an older guy.

The Ritchies, Amazon
31 December 2010
  • Summary: I bought this unit as a refurb due to the price point and the seller being local to me. It is replacing the factory system in my 2000 Mercury Villager. Pros: -Excellent sound improvement, even with the factory speakers. -HD radio reception and number of stations (Seattle/Tacoma area) is impressive.

HD Radio system

Paul E. Ramseyer, Amazon
8 November 2009
  • Summary: Works great easy to install. Love the remote and I got the Ipod adaptor and Bluetooth adaptor too. The only thing it does not have is a way to remember songs that are playing. Newer model all have this feture. This one does not. However this system is great and easy to use. I am very happy.

So far, so good

T. Nicholson, Amazon
16 September 2009
  • Summary: I've been shopping around for a new CD player for about 3 years, but waited until I traded in my car for a newer one. I replaced the factory CD player in my 2004 Civic with this one and I love it.

CD loading mechanism broke in 30 days

H. Hon, Amazon
16 September 2009
  • Summary: The unit sounds great and I was very pleased and happy until it ate my CD. The loading mechanism failed and scratched my CD in couple of places rendering it a coaster. I had to uninstall it out of my car to bring it to the Service Center. Not sure if all this hassle was worth the cheap price.

Discover HD radio

Lil Mikey, Amazon
7 September 2009
  • Summary: I just bought a 97 nissan maxima and that old school radio just wasn't cutting it. I bought this JVC for the price because at this price there is no way you'll get a HD Radio. Installation was a breeze (Note: get your vehicle's wiring diagram before installation this will save you so much time).

Just what I wanted

Thomas Vernor "Gizmo Addict", Amazon
28 May 2009
  • Summary: Then it was stolen along with my car, but the joke is on them, I still have the face! I almost gave it 4 stars because it's a little ugly IMHO but I knew that when I bought it and I'm more of a function over form guy anyway.

Clicking

Jon Barclay, Amazon
23 March 2009
  • Summary: This radio has a known issue with the CD player clicking when you change audio sources or insert a new CD. JVC finally released a firmware update but it does not always solve the problem. I am very disappointed in this radio.
