First Look: JVC KD-AVX33

1:44 /

The JVC KD-AVX33 is a slick, feature-rich, in-dash multimedia player that supports an impressive number of audio/visual sources, including DVD video and audio from generic USB drives.

^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hi I'm Kevin Massy from CNET Car Tech and today we're taking a first look at the JVC KD-AVX 33. Now this is an in-dash audio and video player for your car. This thing can play MP3 and WMA discs, as well as DVD, video and DivX video for your home brood movies. It also comes with an astounded USB 2.0 port. All disc-based media plays via the single disc slot behind the roll-down faceplate. One of the drawbacks of having such a sparse faceplate is that the controls for selecting and browsing digital audio libraries are pretty elaborate and sometimes pretty complicated. I've got to admit I was pretty skeptical when I first saw this system about how well video would be reproduced on this small screen, but in practice the screen is so bright and the resolution so crisp that you can actually sit here and watch a full length movie. Now the final thing I want to tell you about with the KD-AVX 33 is its Bluetooth interface which I really like. I have my cell phone pegged to the system and I press this hard phone button here I get a menu for dialing, making calls and also has sucked down all the info from my phone book so I can access my contacts. Now this systems isn't cheap; it's on sale now for a price of between 5 and 600 dollars, but if you're looking for a feature packed single-DIN, in-dash multimedia player with Bluetooth built in, then this has got to be on your list. I'm Kevin Massy and today we've had a first look at the JVC KD-AVX 33. ^M00:01:42 [ Music ] ^M00:01:44
