JVC is highlighting 21 new products that incorporate the latest technology and convenience benefits to create a more entertaining driving experience. They have sixteen new in-dash receivers, four new speakers, and a subwoofer amplifier. These new products bolster an impressive lineup of more than 60 products.
All of the new receivers replace the 2014 models with stylish design and improved ergonomics. All touch screen equipped models enable the user to position icons for their most-used functions according to their preference. Drivers can swipe a finger on the screen to control volume and media selection on select multimedia receivers. If the vehicle is equipped with factory steering wheel controls, they an be integrated to control all the new JVC receivers.
JVC Mobile’s new receivers expand on their integration with Android-based smartphones to provide a level of integration comparable to that of the iPhone. With the JVC Music Play app, CD and Digital Media receivers can now control audio selection and playback on stored media on select Android devices through a direct USB connection.
Apple phone integration remains a strong point of JVC Mobile receivers with support for music control over USB connection or via Bluetooth. It also offers direct access to Siri Eyes Free Mode for safe, audible, delivery of Web-based information.
Fourteen of the 16 new receivers include a built-in app to access Pandora Internet Radio through a connected device. Most of the receivers feature iHeartRadio. The new receivers include Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC). For MP3 or WMA-encoded audio, the Digital Track Expander helps to restore higher frequencies that are lost when music is compressed.
The HX line of speakers features a lighter and more flexible speaker cone and improved midrange reproduction throughout the four new models. The new single-channel amplifier benefits from a parallel drive MOSFET power supply to improve power while maintaining linearity.
