The JVC KD-R300 is an in-dash car-audio receiver that features a built-in MOSFET amplifier with a 200w max power output. The fourth of six JVC KD A/V head units, the JVC KD-R300 is an upgrade from the JVC KD-R200 in that it is Bluetooth Compatible, Satellite Radio Ready, and HD Radio Ready. Plus, the KD-R300 features a variable-color illumination display with 30 preset color choices. In all other ways, however, the KD-R300 is practically a duplicate of its predecessor. For instance, the KD-R300 also includes a regular AM/FM radio and a CD player that supports traditional CDs, CD-Rs, and CD-RWs, not to mention those outfitted with MP3 & WMA music files. In addition, the KD-R300 sports a front auxiliary input, a wireless remote, a 3-band iEQ, a detachable face, a low-pass filter and subwoofer level control, a 24-bit digital-to-analog converter, and 2-channel preamp outputs. The JVC KD-R300 retails for a slightly more expensive $119.95 (versus $99.95) and comes with a 1 year limited warranty. Additional service plans are available for a fee.

To first-time buyers of radios with such features as Bluetooth and High-Def Radio, beware!
When they say it is Bluetooth, HD and iPod "ready", they really mean you need to buy extra stuff, and the radio is "ready" for you to plug it in. iPod adapter is around $50. Bluetooth and HD adapters run around $100 EACH!
Until then, just another radio.
