I purchased this unit from my local store. It is a great value for all the options you get. I was mainly interested in bluetooth. It paired right up to my smart phone with no issues. The microphone works great. The sound is very clear even with my factory speakers. I love the color change display b/c my car uses all red interior lights so I was able to make the cd player match. Plenty of rca jacks to add other accessories. I love the rear usb so that I dont tie up my front usb with the bluetooth adapter. Thanks JVC for including the bluetooth adapter and not making me buy it separately. Front auxillary input., remote, detachable face, plenty of power. I would recommend this cd player to a friend. Thanks Jvc and Walmart.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

It sounds a lot better than the factory radio in the Subaru Impreza, but not as good as a Sony DVD unit, which was more expensive. Blue tooth is great, but microphone is so-so. easy to install if you get the right wire harness. Good to have USB and aux plug in. USB does not support iPhone 5.

Best Receiver I've ever owned, BT music is great!

I've had this JVC unit now for seven months, and it never disappoints. Most of the use is streaming music from my Android Bluetooth phone (Pandora One, iHeartRadio, Stitcher, etc.). The stereo bluetooth is fantastic, especially when given a high-bitrate audio source, like Pandora One (subscription). When flipping between iHeartRadio and the same local FM station, it sounds a LOT better through the Bluetooth. The EQ presets are great, especially "Dynamic" for music, and "Talk" for talk radio. The user EQ controls can quickly control Subwoofer level, Bass, Mids, Treble from just one button on the face. More advanced control is available in the settings menu for Q control, crossover frequencies (sub, mid, treble). The face LED backlight colors are completely customizable to match your dash colors, and even allow two separate colors at one time (one for daylight bright, and another for night-time dim settings). E.g. I have mine to bright blue for daytime, and a soft/dim amber at night, which matches my dash. The Bluetooth phone works well, and takes about 15 seconds to pair after starting the car, and displays who is calling, etc. The phonebook is available through the receiver, too, and you can make/receive calls while the phone is in your pocket or purse. The supplied remote microphone has about 10 feet of mic cord, so easily mounted near the upper left windshield, and the wiring hid from view completely behind the trim. The sound is good on both ends, with decent noise control, with no reverb or feedback. The front face USB works fine for listening to music files from a thumbstick. I don't do this often since I have music on my phone, but it does work well and reliably. I have a subwoofer and subwoofer amp hooked to the unit, and four upgraded speakers powered by the receiver. Sound is fantastic, with good imaging and no noise or hiss, even at high volumes in quiet passages. You won't be disappointed! The Bluetooth USB dongle attaches to a second USB port in the rear via a extension cable, so you can place the dongle nearest your phone location (mine is mounted into the glovebox from the rear, so the USB port is accessible if needed... but never have once had to disconnect the BT dongle). Easy to install...probably took about 10 minutes, actually, even with taking off my dash panels (easy on my Honda Insight).

I am Very Pleased with this receiver! I bought this receiver at my local Wal-Mart after some shopping and research. I installed this system and it sounded Great through my Ford Explorer Sport factory speakers, but I wasn't quite satisfied with the sound. I did some more research for some better speakers and decided to buy 4 of the Pioneer TS-A6885R 6X8(5X7) 4-way 350W Speakers and installed them. "WOW" what a difference! I tweaked the EQ and get Crisp frequency response at all volume levels through this system. The receiver and the speakers match perfect! Some people don't understand that matching components make all the difference in performance and sound. That's the reason you research. The receiver also has separate left and right pre-amp outputs for front, rear, and subwoofers if you want to add a power amp and subwoofers. Another awesome feature is the Bluetooth which not only works with iPhone, it also works with other smartphones. Works great with my Windows Phone and can stream music files! CD,AM/FM, USB, front AUX all work great! Love the panel color changing options also! I have mine set on variable colors and looks awesome. Plenty of power without power amp with the right speaker matchup. Everything works great once you learn all the menu options. I thought the receiver was lacking power until I discovered the "volume gain" in the "audio" menu. It is preset low at the factory to keep you from over-powering and blowing low watt speakers. Look for this in your "audio" menu, it boosts the power 2 to 3 times factory setting. You'll love this system if you know what you're doing when installing and matching all components. Ask a professional and do it right and you will be very pleased with your new receiver!
