Alexa voice control

Load the Alexa app onto your phone and pair your phone to this JVC receiver, press the dedicated "Alexa" button on the faceplate, and you can access music, audiobooks, news, weather, traffic, and smart home controls using your voice. 

You say you want some music?

You can play and charge your iPhone® or check out a USB drive filled with high-res FLAC files through this receiver's front USB port. Android™ users, you can control and play music using Bluetooth. JVC rounds out the connectivity with a front aux input for a portable music player. The KW-R950BTS also lets you enjoy all the programming variety of SiriusXM (satellite radio tuner and subscription also required). This JVC's sensitive radio tuner pulls in your local AM and FM analog stations like a champ, too.

Wireless convenience

Bluetooth is the norm for wireless phone functionality these days. The KW-R950BTS lets you pair two Bluetooth-equipped phones and quickly switch between them for hands-free calling. You can wirelessly stream and control the playback functions of just about any Internet radio service, including Spotify, TIDAL, and Qobuz. You can also stream stored music, audiobooks, and podcasts from the phone that's active. JVC also added a little fun to audio streaming with their Streaming DJ feature — pair five phones so everybody can pick their tunes for the ultimate road trip playlist. Bluetooth also lets you control this stereo directly from your iPhone® or Android™ phone by downloading JVC's free Remote app.

Get creative with the look in your dash by using this JVC's variable color display.

Customize it to make it yours

Remember when we only had bass and treble controls? With this JVC receiver, you can refine your sound with the onboard 13-band graphic equalizer and digital time alignment — a great option to fix the off-center seating position in a vehicle. If you're listening to MP3 files and Bluetooth audio, you'll dig the way that JVC's K2 technology spruces up the sound of compressed digital music.

As its name implies, the Sound Lift feature adjusts your music's frequencies to virtually "raise" your speakers, since they're usually low in the doors, for more natural imaging. Three sets of 4-volt preamp outputs provide a super-clean signal for adding amplifiers to your system for greater clarity and punch.

This receiver's 2-line white display provides all your music and caller info, while its variable-color illumination lets you pick the colors on two areas of the display. The Music Sync feature even lets the lights bop along to your music.

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.
