Digital Media Receiver featuring Bluetooth® / USB / Backlit Display / Conformal Coated PCB / 13-Band EQ / Variable-Color Illumination / JVC Remote App Compatibility

Versatile Application

Receivers and amplifiers for marine and motor sports applications need to perform in harsh environments exposed to outdoor elements. JVC’s marine and motor sports receivers and amplifiers feature compact size for versatile installation even in tight spaces. Conformal coated main PCBs (printed circuit boards) offer additional protection against moisture and condensation from damaging the product.



4.0V High-Voltage 3 Pre-Outs

Equipped with three RCA terminals for pre-outs with 4.0V high voltage. Increasing the output voltage from the pre-outs helps reduce transmission noise and distortion when connected with an external amplifier.

Conformal Coating

A conformal coating is a protective chemical coating to safeguard electronic circuits from harsh environments that may contain moisture or chemical contaminants. It provides a barrier to airborne contaminants from the operating environment, such as salt-spray, thus preventing corrosion.


Bluetooth® Control

Sound Optimization

K2 Technology for Enhanced Digital Sound Quality

K2 is a JVC original technology that reproduces the original master sound by expanding the frequency range. For example, K2 will expand the digital data of the audio CD recorded at 44.1kHz to 192 kHz. It is also possible to recreate the high-frequency range above 20kHz that is cut during the CD formatting.


Time Alignment

By selecting the speaker type and the distance to the center of the listening position, the receiver will automatically adjust the timing of the sound output from each of the speakers so that the sound from each of the speakers will arrive exactly at the same time to the listening position.


Space Enhancement

Space Enhancement is a virtual surround technology using 2 speakers. Simply select the vehicle size, and the receiver automatically adjusts the sound effectively.


Sound Response

This function boosts the low frequencies which can be lost during compression to MP3 or AAC.


Sound Lift

Virtually manipulate the height of the speakers by adjusting the sound frequencies.


Volume Link EQ

Volume Link EQ boosts specific frequencies in the audio signal to compensate for the impact of road noise. It boosts frequencies in the music that are affected by road noise.


13-Band Equalizer

Use the 13-Band Equalizer to manually adjust the sound to your taste.


Remote Control App

Control the receiver's source directly from the smartphone using simple finger gestures with "JVC Remote" app* (now available for both iOS and Android). You can even customize your audio setting, and see detailed source information such as song title, artist name and album art etc. from the smartphone.


Short Chassis

The reduced depth of the chassis contributes to a weight reduction and facilitates easier installation.
