Simple, smart, and sturdy

The Boss 560BRGB CD receiver gets you into the Bluetooth® wireless game affordably, along with lots of music options to keep you entertained on your drive. In addition to a wireless remote, Boss also includes straightforward faceplate controls and a variable-color display that enables you to pick the right look for your dash.

Wireless convenience with Bluetooth

You can answer a phone call with the push of a button and talk as if your caller is sitting next to you, freeing up your hands and letting you concentrate on the drive. And this Boss receiver supports Bluetooth audio streaming, so you can stream music wirelessly from compatible devices to the receiver, with basic control over Internet radio stations, like Pandora® and Spotify®.

Lots of music options

Not everyone uses the same devices for music, so Boss provided several ways to get your music playing. They included a front auxiliary input for portable audio players, as well as a front USB port for playing MP3 files. You can always slide in your favorite CDs, including discs burned with MP3 and WMA files. Finding songs on your media is easy, thanks to an alphabetic directory search feature.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

    • Hands-Free Communication (w/ Integrated Mic): The Boss 560BRGB allows for wireless communication between the head unit and your Bluetooth enabled cell-phone.

You can make a call using the included remote control's keypad (there is no phonebook transfer).
    • Wireless Audio Streaming: The Boss 560BRGB also allows you to play back stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth enabled smartphone, tablet, or portable digital music player using a Bluetooth connection. You can control basic music playback functions (Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track) of from the 560BRGB. Advance music navigation and song/artist information will still need to be handled through the Bluetooth mobile device. This unit does not display song/artist information from Bluetooth audio devices.
    Note: Before using the unit's Bluetooth functions, you must pair your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone or audio device to the 560BRGB. Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some mobile devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Boss 560BRGB.

    USB Port: The 560BRGB is equipped with a front-panel USB (type-A) port for connection of a USB mass storage class device, such as a USB thumbdrive or portable digital music player. The unit supports playback of MP3/WMA music files loaded onto a compatible USB msc device. USB portable devices that can be charged via USB will be charged when plugged into the CD receiver's USB port (0.5A), and the vehicle's ignition switch is set to ACC or On.

    Note: The unit's USB port is not compatible with Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad or Android smartphones/tablets.

    AM/FM Tuner: The Boss 560BRGB features a built-in AM/FM tuner. The 560BRGB features 3 FM banks and 2 AM bank for storing presets (automatically or manually).

    Where can I find a replacement harness for this?
    [ Wesley  Apr 25, 2021 ]
    1 answer
    A
    If you are referring to the harness that plugs into the back of this receiver, we do not carry it as a replacement part. I am not aware of a company that does and recommend contacting Boss by calling 800-999-1236 to get help locating the replacement harness.

    The system has two power wires, one for memory and the other connects to ignition. Both have to be connected for it to work

    I purchased the harness with my stereo. Plugged the harness into the plug and back of stereo and connected the orange to a ground and it works great.. Not sure if this will help you or not.

    Can anyone give me a simplified solution to how I stop the neon show on this radio and set it to one color only? Boss never replied to my request. Thank you.

    click the volume knob then turn it until there is a setting called system or display. Then click the knob in again to select it. Then there should be a color selector somewhere. Hope this helps.

    I do not think so. I tried when I first bought the system. I listen to my phone through Bluetooth charge my phone with the car charger. Am happy with my Boss system.

    This will depend largely on your vehicle. For details on installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-888-955-6000) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on what you will need for an installation.

    The radio comes with a bracket that is made for your specific car. In my car it just has space to put a couple CDs or whatever you want to throw in there.
    [ Joseph  Jan 03, 2020 ]
    A
    The installation kit that Crutchfiled sells with the radio has a small shelf that takes up that space and give you a little storage area. I had worried about how it would look but it all turned out great. I now have a 05 Vette and am putting in an after market radio I got from Crutchfield.
    [ Dan  Jan 03, 2020 ]
    Q
    Are you able to change the display color on the unit? It defaults to a cycle of all the colors and it is very distracting when driving at night. I checked the manual and did not see anything related to this in it.
    [ Carly  May 06, 2019 ]

    Funny you asked! Put this in my son's car and he's never bothered to change the crazy lights - says they help him stay focused when he's driving (somehow). So don't know if the colors can be set or not. My wife has a similar unit in her car, and she was able to pick a color. Just went to Crutchfield FAQ and here's what they said: Go to settings then arrow over to illumination and you can select whatever color you want. Its under general settings. Hope this helps!
    [ Lynwood  May 07, 2019 ]
    A
    Nope, just cycles like you described..
    [ Curtis  May 06, 2019 ]
    A
    My bad you are asking HOW to. You have to press the big dial on the left and keep clicking it until you see color, than rotate until you find the color you want.
    [ Vincent  May 06, 2019 ]
    A
    Yes you can change the display color. You can choose from red green blue cyan and purple. The blue light burnt out of on me after awhile which is a bummer so I switched to cyan.
    [ Vincent  May 06, 2019 ]

    Is there a way to make the screen brighter?

    I believe so
    [ Valerie  May 06, 2019 ]
    A
    I haven't found a need for a brighter display. Of the four colors available I find the blue works best for daytime display but not glaring at night. I'd suggest putting it on the multi color that switches the color at regular intervals for a while until you find one that works best for you

    Bottom left or right of head unit there is a button you can press to take just the head unit module out. To take the entire assembly you need the 2 keys that you jam into a small hole on the side of the radio and pull out. Check videos on how to take radio out.

    I have an IPhone 6 and it connects via Bluetooth every day. It'll allow you to play music, audiobooks, have phone calls, etc... I believe the answer to your question is yes depending on what you want your iPhone to do. Hope that helps.
    [ Andrew  Apr 03, 2019 ]
    A
    Absolutely. I love this radio I use my IPhone to listen to audio books and my IPod to listen to music. My husband and I drive 160 miles every couple of weeks to see our grandson and spend the weekend with them. We are able to listen to music all the way there and back. I download the Stingray Music app (the music channel provided through our cable provider) and can play all their music. I love this product.
    [ Peggy  Apr 02, 2019 ]

    If you are referring to Bluetooth, yes. I used my Android Samsung and a friend used his iPhone and both worked equally well.
    [ Gary  Apr 02, 2019 ]

    Yes, it will connect to any device with bluetooth capabilities or an AUX Port
