The JVC KD-AHD79 is a CD receiver for car audio systems with a built-in HD radio tuner. This is similar to the JVC KD-HDR70, but uses Arsenal quality components for increased durability and includes a 2 year warranty. They are otherwise identical, with the same faceplate and feature sets. A USB port enables 2-way iPod/iPhone control and includes an external mode for the iPhone and iPod Touch. iTunes tagging is also built in. Both MP3 and WMA files can be played from a CD, and dual AUX inputs are available for input from a wide variety of portable devices. Output runs through a 4 channel MOSFET filter at 50 watts per channel, and a 7 band iEQ balances the audio to ensure proper tone.

AAC is the file format that Apple/iPods use for audio files. In other words, you can't create a data disc from iTunes and play it on this head unit.
