Boss Audio BV7985


$230.00 Released October, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Plays back a wide variety of formats with minimal issues - CDs, DVDs and Mp3 players are fully supported without latency or loss of quality. Flash card support significantly increases external content handling - enables image and video file viewing in addition to foldered music playback. Picture quality is excellent - image and video content are crystal clear, with excellent color and contrast levels.

The Cons:FM radio tuning is hit and miss - sound quality may degrade within 30-60 seconds of dialling in a new station, potentially ending in a static signal. CD/DVD drive takes quite a while to load disc content - considerably slower than competitors from Kenwood and JVC. Incompatible with speaker systems below 4 ohms - not recommended for users with high-end units from Kenwood, Infinity, Alpine, etc.

The Boss Audio BV7985 is an in-dash AM/FM/DVD/MP3/CD car receiver that can be hooked up to both MP3 players and iPods. A slight upgrade from the BV9780, the BV9785 uses a 4.3” wide-screen and touch-screen TFT monitor capable of 1152x234 resolution.
