Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Digital Media Receiver (Mech-Less)

The 612UA is the perfect choice for a receiver for all of your digital music. It contains the essentials for enjoying your media such as having an AM/FM radio, USB port for playback of digital files, and a 3.5mm auxiliary input for connecting your iPod/MP3 player. This is a "mech-less" receiver meaning there are no mechanical parts since it doesn't play back discs or cassettes.

Front-Panel USB Port

It contains a convenient front-panel USB port and 3.5mm auxiliary input for playback from USB thumb drives and your iPod/MP3 player/etc. It also lets you instantly switch out USB thumb drives with a fresh batch of MP3 tunes/podcasts/etc. It's a quick and easy way to enjoy your digital library on the go. You will never go without knowing what song you are listening to while you enjoy MP3s because the display screen has ID3 tag information that lists the artist, track, and album.

Auxiliary Input

Connect your iPod or MP3 player with a headphone output via the 3.5mm auxiliary input which is conveniently located on the front.

AM/FM Radio

Enjoy your favorite radio programming with the PLL-synthesized tuner, featuring 30 station presets for instant access to your preferred stations.

Customize Your Sound

Dial in the sound with standard bass/treble/balance/fader controls. With the loudness control you can ensure you still get rich, full-range sound with plenty of low end.

612UA In-Dash Single-DIN MP3 Compatible CD AM/FM Receiver

Front Auxiliary In

On the front of the 612UA is an input labeled “AUX”, which allows the input of audio signals for MP3 players, headphones, and portable music players.

Switchable US and Europe Tuner Frequencies

If you happen to take the 612UA outside of the US, you are able to pick up European frequencies so that you can enjoy your music abroad as well.

Output Power: 50 Watts x 4 Channels

The 612UA offers four channels that can be used to hook up four speakers. Typically though, it is a much better practice to have an amplifier running your system.

Pros: price, both USB & SD(HC), id3 tag display, and sound quality. Cons: crappy docmentasen [sic;], warranty will cost you, and the mp3 read order. I did the research and knew what to expect for the price I was willing to pay. The unit therefore meets my needs; the sound exceeded my expectations. I was pleasantly surprised that it takes 8GB SDHC media. Not so happy that it did not have standard mounting screw holes, in fact no mounting holes; easy to fix. One of my dislikes is that mp3 files are read in the order written to the USB/SD, not in alpha-numeric order. It therefore requires a bit of planning when putting a larger number of folders (albums) on the device (and even more planning for Mac users...hint rsync really helps!). Nice ability to skip forward & backwards by ten songs or by an entire folder (album), and doesn't have a problem with nested folders, but remember it plays files in the order written, not in the order your file system might show them to you! The other dislike is no illumination control (for night driving).

I did not have the problem others reported of the volume reseting; I don't know about issues with the randomize feature since I generally listen to albums or pre-arranged playlists. FM seemed to pickup the few stations I listen to as well as my old radio did. I was very pleased with the fidelity; 320kbps mp3's sounded clear with full dynamic range, 128kbps I could hear the drop-off. Did not hear any distortion as I turned to volume up to what I consider "too loud to enjoy" or ~30 on the unit's scale of 40 max. Mounted in a 2005 Prius - stealth mode - can finally listen to mp3 on USB/SD or iPod via AUX in my Prius at a fraction of the cost of other solutions.

I installed this on a 2000 Oldsmodbile Alero and I had no issues. Just made sure that I matched the color connectors and hooked it up with the existing harness and voila, it worked. Also purchased an auxiliary cable to hook up with MP3 player and it worked like a charm. Lots of powers (200W) and could receive AM/FM signals. This unit has no CD player and is replaced by an SD Card which is fine. CD's are almost the thing of the past. All in all, I recommend this Boss 612UA car stereo/mp3 player/am/fm receiver.

I threw this into my winter beater since it was only five bucks more than what the junkyard wanted for a factory unit. I gotta say, this thing is worth the money as long as it lasts (only had it for a week). The tuner pulls in stations as well as a factory GM unit, and will even fill your presets automatically if you wish! Aux, SD and USB all work great. It took a 8 gig SD with no problem, which I have problems with my other mechless reciever in a different car. The clock is tricky to set, but at least you have one, unlike my other mechless unit. Since the manual is worthless, this is how to set the clock: /// 1)Hold the mode/clk button for about two seconds and clock will appear. 2) Release button and immediately press again for two more seconds; clock will flash, release button. 3) use volume knob to adjust hour. 4) Depress volume button, and minutes will flash, again use the volume to adjust minutes. 5) Clock is now set. //// However, I have not discovered how to constantly display the clock. You have to hold the mode/clk button for two seconds every time you want to see the time. My other mechless reciever is the Dual XR4110, and it will be replaced with one of these come spring time as long as everything keeps working well. This thing is awesome, love it!

My early Impressions are as follows

User Interface:
The UI is simplistic, but easy to understand. Most of the buttons on the receiver serve simple functions, and auxiliary functions are accessed by holding the buttons down. Their feel is hard and they click with a hard "snap" feeling every bit as cheap as the radio costs. The volume control knob is depressed to access settings, and held to turn off the unit. This is not very favorable as it is possible to hit the button when attempting to turn down the volume, forcing you to wait until it returns to normal function. The pale blue backlit display is adequate during the day, but the bright blue accent lights around the volume knob shine too brightly at night. At this price point you cannot expect a color changing display, but a dimmer would be nice.

Radio Performance:
The radio is sensitive, picking up even remote stations easily, and sounds quite good. The buttons are small and clustered on the right side of the unit - yet are somehow easy to select by feel alone. Tuning the stations is irksome, as pressing the tuning button seeks to even the weakest station. Holding the tuning button sends the radio to manual tune, which is slow to tune and returns to seek after a seemingly random period of time. I set my favorite radio stations in memory and forgot about the tuning difficulties quickly.

This radio has only simple settings for audio - Bass, Treble, and Loud. A few built-in EQ settings are present, but I favored custom settings. The radio puts out 200W peak, which is just enough to drive my 6.5" Polks. The sound quality is good, but a more customizable EQ would be nice.
