JVC to intro studio-quality car audio head end

updated 11:20 am EST, Fri December 1, 2006

JVC KD-S100 Car Audio

JVC and design partner Bongiovi said today that they are producing the first car stereo head unit that can significantly upgrade audio quality by itself. Called the KD-S100, the device uses Bongiovi's Digital Power Station processor to tune the audio properties to a car's existing speakers and audio environment, improving sound quality to near-studio levels without having to improve the speakers themselves. The new chip can independently adjust four channels and uses Digital Subwoofer to create a virtual bass unit, obviating the need for the real thing, according to Bongiovi. The audio system is capable of supporting up to 200 watts of power and includes a front-mounted USB port for playing MP3 or WMA songs from flash drives; connectors for an iPod interface and Sirius radio tuning are optional. The KD-S100 is now available through a network of US car dealerships as an aftermarket part.
