Just Sounds Great


Did your stereo die? Did it ever work in the first place? Well, even if it did, it never worked like this baby. The JVC KD-R480 hits that sweet spot of budget, features, and just plain getting good music back in your car.

Did your old stereo have steering wheel controls? You can still use them with the KD-R480. Just get it hooked up correctly and those controls will live once again. Front 3.5mm aux and USB ports? Man, what are you doing? Chuck that old stereo and do what you should have done a long time ago. Hit "Add to Cart" and call it a day. You're welcome.

Excellent Radio for a Reasonable Price !!

This is a great radio. Many features and the CD player is fantastic... even with road bumps.

I did not use the remote control, but I can see how it would be very handy on a long trip.

By Kim on March 8, 2018

Awesome deal!!

Not the best receiver but for the money you cant beat it. No issues so far with it. I put it in my winter car with 225,000 miles on it so I didnt expect much.

By James on February 9, 2018

Awesome deal!!

Not the best but for the price it can't be beat. If you need something in a second vehicle this is it.

By James on January 22, 2018

Not bad!

Definitely no $150 head unit, but for the price point you can’t beat it. Not a good pair with a cheap amp for tuning your subs, but I run an SCV3000D so I don’t really have an issue
