Boss BV7940


$250.00 Released January, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Very loud output, makes external amps unnecessary in most cases. DVDs play smoothly, look very crisp and clear. Nice interface, becomes intuitive quickly, good for control while driving.

The Cons:Sound output is muffled, not a clean signal. Display is very plain and unattractive when playing audio tracks. Very plain display - shows only track number (no name, artist etc),.

The BV7940 is an in-dash DVD, CD, and MP3 receiver from Boss Audio.  The receiver is an upgrade to the BV7340 since it is designed with a larger 3.6" widescreen TFT monitor that has a resolution of 1440 x 234 pixels and 600 nits brightness.
