The JVC KD-R498 CD & Digital Media Receiver equipped with VA (Vertical Alignment) LCD panels that offer a broader angle of view and better visibility. The 2-line display provides more information with animation effects. Preset EQ patterns are selectable from 15 types including ”drvn EQ” that is designed to maximize the performance of JVC drvn Series amplifiers and speakers, as well as producing dynamic sound for any speaker. Compatible with FLAC format which allows digital audio to be losslessly compressed, so that file size is reduced without any information being sacrificed. Also compatible with playback of 16bit / 48kHz FLAC format.

Simply connect your Android smartphone or tablet to the receiver via USB and enjoy a totally “plug and play” music playback solution. The Android Open Accessory Protocol (AOA2) is supported so absolutely no preparation or set-up is necessary – just plug it in and it’s ready to play audio files stored on your Android device in what’s called “AUDIO MODE”.
