High-Resolution Audio Playback
You can enjoy playback of 96kHz/24bit audio which contains about 3 times the musical information of music CDs (44.1kHz/16bit), or even 192kHz/24bit High-Resolution Audio files with their approx. 6.5 times data volume. With high sound quality approaching the original master recording itself, you will experience the presence and ambience of a tune the way CD simply cannot.

High-Quality Bluetooth® Streaming with LDAC™

LDAC™ sends approximately three times more data (at the maximum 990 kbps transfer rate) than conventional Bluetooth® audio for superior wireless listening. Unlike other Bluetooth compatible coding technologies such as SBC, it operates without any down-conversion of the Hi-Res Audio content *1, and allows approximately three times more data *2 than those other technologies to be transmitted over a Bluetooth wireless network with unprecedented sound quality, by means of efficient coding and optimized packetization.
*1: excluding DSD format contents
*2: in comparison with SBC (Subband Coding) when the bitrate of 990kbps (96/48kHz) or 909kbps (88.2/44.1kHz) is selected

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.

Sound Response
Cancels time distortion to create clearer sound during the playback of compressed audio files.

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

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.

2 Phones Full-Time Connection
You can connect two phones full time via Bluetooth, with secure and simple pairing. Calls to either phone can be received by a push of a key on the receiver.

iPhone®/Android™ Bluetooth Automatic Pairing
Just connect your iPhone or Android device via USB and the automatic Bluetooth pairing function will work to complete the pairing. No complicated manual procedure to worry about.

Bluetooth Voice Recognition – Improved Sound Quality with HFP 1.6 Wideband Speech
Improved sound quality thanks to HD Voice contributes to a higher level of voice recognition accuracy.

Bluetooth AVRCP1.6 for Versatile Song Selection

*Compatibility depends on the smartphone.
