Overview Details Accessories

No frills doesn't mean no thrills

Maybe you don't need high-tech features like Bluetooth® or navigation while you're driving. You just want good music while you're cruising along. JVC's KD-R470 CD receiver delivers strong sound, while offering several ways to get your music going on the road — including a sensitive AM/FM tuner, a USB port for digital music on flash drives or your Android™, and an auxiliary input. You can run the show using the simple controls on the detachable faceplate or on the included wireless remote control. 

Choose your music

Using the KD-R470 receiver's front-panel USB port, you can plug in your library of MP3, WMA, WAV, or FLAC music files. The USB port also doubles as a port for an Android phone, enabling you to play and control the phone's stored music while it charges. If you've got your music stored on a portable device with a headphone output, like a portable high-res player, you can access all of its music by plugging into the front-panel auxiliary input. Finally, you can go old school by sliding a CD in or tuning in your favourite AM or FM station. 

Setting up your audio and display

A built-in 3-band parametric equalizer, twelve EQ preset settings, and loudness controls let you zero in on just the right sound. JVC included a set of preamp outputs and a low-pass filter, so you can plug in a powered subwoofer to add some oomph to your music. The KD-R470 receiver also features built-in dimmer and brightness controls, so you can see the info on its single-line display without any unnecessarily distracting lights. 

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?

In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.

Reviewer: Anonymous person from Waldorf, MD  
Replaced the factory radio which was dying. Went in without a problem and worked great. Much better and with more features than the one that came with the car.

Reviewer: Anonymous person from Cape Coral, FL  
This radio, along with the suggested install kit, was great. Very simple install, and radio performance excellent.

Great stereo

Does everything I need and does it well! October-16-16
Reviewer: Johnathan L from Vine Grove, KY  
This is the third time I've purchased this stereo.  It does everything I need it to do.  CD, mp3/wma, aux, usb, radio, sub or extra speaker output (rca on back).  It has been reliable and works well.  There's no blue tooth and the controls take a little learning (navigating around the setup and options can take a little while), but it works and works well.

Reviewer: Tom from Lancaster, PA  
This receiver was a perfect fit for my 1998 Jetta and is an excellent value.  I am very pleased with the sound and performance of the product and highly recommend it.
