The JVC KD-X561DBT provides the perfect solution if you’re looking to upgrade/update the original factory-fitted Alpine single DIN head unit in your Land Rover Defender.

The ‘mechless’ design (no CD player) of the JVC KD-X561DBT makes it approximately 50mm shallower than traditional CD equipped head-units. The shallow 111mm depth of the JVC KD-X561DBT frees up some much needed extra space within the Defender dashboard to create more room for your wiring and makes installation and removal of the head unit a stress-free task. The picture below shows the difference in length between the JVC mechless design and a traditional single DIN unit.

Aside from its physical advantages, the JVC KD-X561DBT is packed with additional tech features you’d expect from the JVC Kenwood brand.

The colour TFT display signals an end to trying to read scrolling calculator style LED displays and trying to hit tiny buttons on-the-move to select sub-menus and functions. The 3-inch TFT Screen provides easy to read menu and function selection at-a-glance.

In addition, the TFT display doubles up as a full colour reverse camera screen. A neat feature of the camera function is that in addition to activating with reverse gear, it also offers a manual ‘on’ option to let you keep an eye on that trailer load while on the move. We are now stockists of the fully compatible JVC Reverse Camera KV-CM30. Click the image below for more information and a fitting guide.

The single large rotary button with ‘scroll and push-to-select’ function provides intuitive menu navigation and function selection.

Other features you’d expect of a high-end unit are all included on the JVC KD-X561DBT. These include, DAB+ (DAB antenna required), Bluetooth connectivity for your phone and music, front mounted Aux-In socket, front mounted USB 2.0 socket with rapid charge for iPhone, Sub-Woofer output, camera input, two phone connection for driver and passenger, three pre-outs, Mp4, WAV, FLAC & H.264 file compatibility.

The JVC KD-X561DBT is supplied with mounting cage, microphone and user manual.

Important! Please Read

The back of the JVC head unit is equipped with an ISO car-audio socket that's designed to accept the industry standard ISO car-audio connections. An adapter cable to connect the JVC head unit to the Defender's factory radio loom is not supplied. If your vehicle already has an aftermarket head unit, then you may find that your existing wiring already has the ISO connections and therefore will fit directly into the back of the JVC head unit. If your vehicle is not fitted with the ISO connections as standard we can supply an adaptor harness to convert the vehicle specific stereo harness to ISO connections.

When installing a subwoofer (including our Phoenix Gold Sub) you will require a phono splitter to link the pair of RCA inputs on the sub to the single Sub output jack on the head-unit. The Focal iBus sub is supplied with its own power harness so no RCA connection is required.

You will need to upgrade the standard AM/FM antenna to a DAB antenna to take advantage of Digital Audio Broadcast (DAB) function. DAB antenna suppliers often offer a choice of connector to match that of your head unit. All JVC Multimedia Units use an SMB-Push-Fit DAB Antenna connection. We offer a DAB Antenna with an SMB-Push Fit Connector.

We know that when you shop online you want your order as soon as possible. Choose DHL shipping in the checkout and order before 2pm then you’ll get your stuff the next working day.

On smaller items we also offer a 2nd Class postage service. This normally takes 2-3 working days to show up at your door. If you’re in a rush go for the DHL option for a fully tracked service.

Big Stuff! Unfortunately, our Side Panels, Bulkhead Bars and longer lengths of Cargo Tracking are too big for DHL to handle. We generally use UPS or Fed-Ex but that’s on an ad-hoc basic so you need to order before 12 to get a next day service.

We charge the same rate to any UK address, which includes Highlands and Islands and Northern Ireland. We do this because we think its unfair to charge more just because you live remotely, lets be honest if we could, we’d live there too. In exchange please be patient if your parcel takes more than one day to arrive.

European Shipping

We use DHL to ship to all our European customers, this can range from a 1-5 working day service. The good news is most parcels arrive within 3 days of shipping. If you’re lucky enough to live in France, Germany or Belgium you might even get your parcel the next day.

Once you’ve ordered DHL will be in touch by email with tracking details. If you’ve chosen Royal Mail shipping then you should receive your parcel in around 10 working days (note this can be up to 28 working days).

VAT Numbers: If you have a VAT & EORI number please contact us before you check out.

As the buyer you are responsible for paying these charges, which must be paid before your goods are delivered. If you decline to pay the charges then the goods will be returned to us. Goods returned as a result of payment failure will be refunded. Please note we can only refund the cost of your original order. Delivery costs will not be refunded. Refused parcels may also levy re-entry fees into the UK, they will also be deducted from your refund. If you are thinking of rejecting a parcel due to customs charges, we strongly recommend you contact us first before you reject the parcel. 

If you require further information, we recommend contacting your local tax office.

Please Note: If you live in The Alps or somewhere equally beautiful and hard to get to, we might have to use DPD or TNT to deliver. They should be just as quick.

The best service to choose is DHL, most parcels are delivered within 4 working days. This service is fully tracked and DHL will email you with all the details as soon as they’ve collected your ‘stuff’

If your parcel is light enough, you’ll be offered Royal Mail shipping in the checkout process. This will be delivered locally by your nearest post office. We’ve found that some countries have better postal systems than others. It can take up to 20 working days for post to arrive, so if you are in a rush please choose DHL in the checkout.

Customs & Duties

All packages imported to your country may be subject to customs, taxes or other fees. You are responsible for all applicable customs, duties, taxes and fees charged by your government.

We cannot guarantee that you will or will not be charged any customs taxes or duties.

If you’re worried about possible charges please contact your country's customs office prior to purchasing for respective charges and rates on packages coming from outside of your country.

If you decline parcels locally due to customs duty/tax charges then the goods will be returned to ourselves. Note this will incur further charges which we will debit from your refund, this can often be more than the original customs charges so we would advise you not to do this. If you have made a mistake with your order/ cannot pay the import duty charges then please get in contact with us and we will try to work out the best way forward for you.

Note: Please don’t ask us to declare your goods as a gift, or to value your items at less than they are worth. We’d love to be able to help you out, but we don’t want to end up in jail!

Once we receive your returned parcel, we will process everything accordingly and keep you updated via email. We aim to refund customers the same day that an item is returned. If you originally paid by PayPal then you should receive the refund instantly. However, if you paid by sage pay using a credit or debit card it can sometimes take a few days for refunds to be credited.
