It is a good move to replace your factory stereo system with the JVC KD-R370 receiver to improve sound quality and device connectivity. Its wide range of connectivity from CDs to radio and quality audio features including 3-band parametric equalizer make it a good investment in aftermarket car improvements.
Despite its compact size, the KD-R370 receiver packs a punch with its 20 watts of power, perhaps double the power of your factory stereo system. While greater watts power does not mean louder sound, it means that you can listen to clearer and cleaner sound at all frequencies. With its 4 channels, you can also plug in as many as 4 speakers into the receiver for better sound quality.
The KD-R370 receiver has an AM/FM tuner that can capture local radio stations with as much clarity as the signal will allow. You also have the benefit of built-in frequency filters, a built-in MOSFET amplifier, and a 3-band parametric equalizer to achieve the clearest sound in your car. Your speakers including your subwoofers will be more than equipped to deliver your sound-related expectations with the receiver in place.
Your expansion possibilities are also covered. First, the two auxiliary inputs are for adding sound sources including satellite radio, smartphone (iPhone or Andriod), and portable music players (iPod). Second, the Bluetooth adapter (sold separately) allows for hands-free operaion of your smartphone. Third, the set of preamp outputs provides for subwoofer additions that allow for independent bass adjustments.
The audio features provide benefits, too. Clearer sound can be enjoyed, thanks to the high-pass and low-pass filters as well as the 24-bit digital-to-analog converter.
Other notable features include separate controls for volume, subwoofer level, and brightness including an auto dimmer; beep tones support, and easy EQ. The unit also comes with wireless remote control for versatile operations even among passengers.
