JVC Introduces Five New AV Multimedia Receivers
JVC Mobile Entertainment introduces five new AV Multimedia products, loaded with new technologies and enhanced connectivity for the ultimate in-vehicle consumer experience. New Multimedia receivers feature enhanced connectivity with the new SiriusXM SXV200 Connect Vehicle Tuner (sold separately, XM subscription required).
