Pasmag (Canada) - - Tr. -

ny­one who's on a bud­get and needs a sig­nif­i­cant up­grade from their stock ra­dio will ap­pre­ci­ate the fea­tures and price of the JVC KW-R935BTS dou­ble DIN sized re­ceiver. The unit was de­signed to pro­vide con­nec­tiv­ity to a smart­phone and all the hands free and stream­ing good­ness that comes with that pair­ing, as well as give you ac­cess to ser­vices like Pan­dora, iHeartRa­dio and Spo­tify. And it does all this for well un­der 200 bucks! (U.S. pric­ing) So let's take a closer look at all the cool stuff you get for very few of your hard earned bucks.

The JVC KW-R935BTS is loaded with all sorts of use­ful fea­tures and func­tions. Avail­able sources in­clude CD, AM/FM, Blue­tooth, a pair of USB in­puts with 1.5A charg­ing ca­pa­bil­ity, an aux­il­iary in­put, and apps like Pan­dora, Spo­tify and iHeartRa­dio. How the apps con­nect de­pends on your phones OS. An­droid phones will con­nect via Blue­tooth, whereas Ap­ple de­vices can con­nect di­rectly to the app in­stalled on the iPhone or iTouch. Sir­iusXM satel­lite ra­dio is also avail­able with the op­tional tuner and your subscription. You can also use JVC's Stream­ing DJ to en­able stream­ing of mu­sic from up to five Blue­tooth de­vices!

The KW-R935BTS is equipped with high per­for­mance pre-amp out­puts and a built in MOSFET four chan­nel am­pli­fier, but that's only the be­gin­ning. With such a vast ar­ray of avail­able sources, some se­ri­ous au­dio tun­ing ca­pa­bil­ity is in or­der, and the KW-R935BTS has you cov­ered there too.
