Boss BV9972


$505.00 Released April, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Remote control is compact and easy to use - minimalist layout is conducive to safe, in-car control. Sound outputting is clear and powerful - 85 watts-per-channel handling is conducive to larger configurations.

The Cons:Instruction manual is brief and confusing - most users will require the assistance of a professional installation service. Display is seemingly prone to intermittence problems - video signal phases in and out due to finicky flip system. Virtually impossible to use during the day - glossy screen coating reflects even minimal amounts of sunlight.

The Boss BV9972 is an in-dash DVD/MP3/CD receiver with flip-out 7" monitor.  The disc player is capable of playing CDs, DVDs and almost any other format you can throw at it, including MP3, MP4 WMA and writable discs.
