Product Details
Description
This mobile CD Changer plays CD-Rs, CD-RWs, and standard pre-recorded CDs; it's also compatible with MP3-loaded discs. A single CD can hold up to 100 songs in MP3 format, so you can load up this ""rolling jukebox"" with 12 discs for days of musical entertainment. CD Text information and MP3 tags appear on the display so you'll know at a glance what's playing. BBE II sound processing enhances definition and pumps up the bass for a big, vibrant sound. Control the changer with the wired remote/display unit or with the wireless remote. This compact CH-X1500RF mounts at five different angles so it's easy to find the perfect spot in your vehicle; a full-floating shock-proof mechanism virtually eliminates skipping. JVC includes a see-through 12-disc magazine.

Strengths: Adds CD

Weakness: You must find the always hot

I am very pleased with this fine product. I can finally listen to all my CDs in my formerly just cassette playing 99 Dodge Caravan. I installed the player under the drivers seat, so it

3 Star Review   By member mmorby - Jan 18, 2005   

Strengths: Nice CD player, easy to install.

Weakness: Skipped a few time reading MP3 cd's

Worst customer service I have ever experienced. Missing a part, and JVC refused to send a replacement. Said I had to purchase it. Last JVC product I will ever buy because of the terrible customer service.

5 Star Review   By member viswanathgondi - Jan 9, 2005   

Strengths: MP3, 12 cds, never skips, great sound quality, two controls a wired and a wireless remote.

Weakness: Takes a minute to change disks.

The sound quality is awesome, it depends more on the quality of the mp3s and speakers than the cd changer. I have a mach 460 system with my mustang convertible and I'm in heaven with the top down and volume up. This is the best system you could buy. Retails for around $155-170. Plays all my mp3 disks. No need to dump your old stereo and get good sound quality. I fixed the changer my self, all you need is a voltmeter and some tape. I removed the factory stereo, spliced the wires to setup the changer. The changer takes a minute to change disks. If you press the cd change button by mistake, you are stuck for a minute. A minute is too loooong.... In all the changer is a very good buy. I have looked at other mp3 changers like the sony one but they had lots of problems with skipping and cd recognition. If you have a car you are in the market for this changer.

5 Star Review   By member forsmithers - Mar 29, 2004   

Strengths: Ease of installation and use.

Weakness: Still looking...

I did a lot of research before making this purchase. I wanted a CD changer that I could add on to the existing factory stereo. I also wanted one that would play CD-R, CD-RW AND MP3's. Of all the models that I looked at the JVC had the most features in the smallest package. I love the fact that you can put 12 CD’s in there and have up to 120 HOURS of music in one magazine. The sound quality is excellent and the ability to change frequencies is nice if you go on a road trip and encounter a radio station at 88.1 FM. The instructions are well written and the only hitch I had during the installation was because there was no fuse box under the dash. I ended up splicing the power leads into the stereo wiring harness and it plays like a dream. In short, this is a great system with lots of features and at a great price. It also comes with a 12 month parts AND labor warranty. Sounds like a winner!

5 Star Review   By member typesinla - Sep 22, 2003   

Strengths: never skipped since i bought it, works great, sound quality is ok just turn off BBE.

Weakness: range on remote is weak, too many damn songs, dont have enough mp3's to utilize the whole 12 disc magazine haha

i was reluctant to buy this at first since the guy w/the corvette said it skipped alot & that was the ONLY review around at the time. took the chance & bought it, couldnt be more satisfied! just need to get more mp3's! ony using 8cd's right now since it is my whole collection. overall: best bang for the buck!

5 Star Review   By member missithang - Aug 23, 2003   

Strengths: Has never skipped! Easy to install, looks great, flawless!

Weakness: My only complaint is the display isn't visible unless you look at it straight on. If you mount it next to you you can't view it well. Other then that, none!

I mounted and set this up just like it said and i've had no trouble whatsoever. Just do it like it say's and you'll have hours and hours of audio enjoyment! Quite the bargen for your buck!

5 Star Review   By member rda5858 - Jul 12, 2003   

Strengths: Great sound, 12 CDs!, rugged

Weakness: controls seem a bit small and not intuitive. But really not bad once you get used to them

We have not had this unit long but we took a 3500 mile vacation recently and played it constantly. We heard 36 CD's once - and many 2 or 3 times! We like to camp and traveled many back dirt roads including one that really should have been marked 4 wheel drive only. Through it all it never skipped even once.

1 Star Review   By member Fabianjr7 - Jun 9, 2003   

Strengths: Pretty color and design

Weakness: Scrachy sound, RF module too short, week sound, the worse shock system

I bought this system and I return it 3 days after. I have a corvette and the suspention is very sporty. This shock system jumped and skipped every time. The worse system I have had. Don't bother with it. The RF console the cable is too short.
