Video: JVC KD-AVX77 DVD Receiver

Heads up!

Welcome to this article from the Crutchfield archives. Have fun reading it, but be aware that the information may be outdated and links may be broken.

Get an up-close and informative look at the JVC KD-AVX77 DVD receiver in this video. It's a regular-sized stereo with a touchscreen display, DVD playback, iPod® control via USB connection, and much more.

Hi. I'm Zak and today we're taking a look at the KD-AVX77 DVD receiver from JVC. Now the highlight of this stereo is its real, super-wide, 5.4-inch touchscreen video display, but in addition to that I also want to show you the built in Bluetooth® calling and its outstanding iPod® controls.

Now at first glance you might notice the lack of buttons on the faceplate. That's because everything is controlled by the touchscreen. The buttons actually change with the source that you're listening to and you can see here the volume up and down buttons - not always too convenient to reach while you're driving, so JVC built this functionality in. You can tap and in a dialing motion easily change the volume up and down or even tap and slide and change to the next track.

The controls will disappear when you're not using them then when your hand gets close they'll reappear. You can customize the appearance a lot of different ways. You can change the colors for the background and the text. You can change the wallpaper. It's preloaded with four and you see we've chosen one here, but it's real easy to upload your own photos if you want. Now besides being a cool control feature, it's also a video screen. The stereo plays DVD movies and MPEG video files while you're parked.

When it comes to listening to your tunes, the KD-AVX77 has you covered. Just plug your iPod directly into the USB input and then operate it using the touchscreen. You can get in there just like with your iPod - playlists, artists, albums, whatever you want.

That's probably not a great idea while you're driving, right, so you can have your passenger control the tunes right from the iPod itself. JVC calls this 2-way iPod control and switching back and forth is just as easy as tapping on the touchscreen; and the cool thing is that while the tunes are being controlled from the iPod your song info, album art just shows up on the display.

Now the stereo is compatible with the newer iPods including the iPhone and the iPod touch but if you want to view a video from your iPod on the stereo's display then you'll need the optional video interface.

Built-in Bluetooth lets you make and receive phone calls through the stereo. It uses an external mic which you can mount on the sun visor, the dash, or anywhere else for optimum audio pickup. You answer calls using the touchscreen plus you can set the stereo to answer or reject all incoming calls automatically.

You make calls by using the touchscreen's keypad or if your phone supports it, by voice dialing. You can also choose a number from your phonebook or from your call history. Now in addition to phone calls you can also stream music through the stereo if your phones' version of Bluetooth supports audio streaming.

If you're using factory speakers you can turn on the amplifier gain control to limit the amount of power going out to the speakers so you don't overload them. On the other hand, if you're connecting an external amplifier, you get 5-volt, gold-plated preamp outputs. That way your amp receives a strong signal so it can create clearer-sounding music. If you're building a movie theater on wheels, this stereo features a built in 5.1 channel decoder for surround sound in the car.

Now that's our quick look at the JVC KD-AVX77 DVD receiver. You can find all the details about it at crutchfield.com/avx77 or give us a call at 1-800-555-9408.
