Summary: This had been purchased new by the previous owner of my car. It was only a few months old when I received it. I hate it. The previous owner said you had to be a rocket scientist to program the simplest functions, and he was right. But after you've spent a weekend reading the manual and trying to get the various menus to work, the worst aspects of the unit set in.
Summary: This is actually a review for the 503 which is basically the same as this one I believe. The only difference being that the 503 has a usb port, which is AWESOME. Its what I primarily use it for 99% of the time. Its great, I just plug my flash drive in and play. It also looks really cool especially at night. I've never changed it from the demo mode where it changes colors, its my favorite one.
Summary: Got this little gem as a replacement for my KIA factory CD. had to up grade the rear speakes from factory but this unit rocks my little car and produces clear sound and base. good price and very good quality product, but then again its a Kenwood I wouldn't expect any thing less. Well worth the money.
Summary: The product is great, the installation was easy as I was replacing a Kenwood, so it basically was a plug and play. I wish I had purchased one level up to a DPX 503. There are alot of programming features that are not available on this model, and the display is hard to read. The feature I miss the most is it does not give song and artist. Other than that it is great and I couldn't beat the price.
Summary: this is a good system. I am a fan of kenwood products and this is no let down. it has all the funtions you need for a good sound system. however, if I had it to do over, I would get the 503 model (the upgrade). It has enough added features to make it a great instead of good system.
Excerpt: ...fa il lettore cd della Kenwood e sono abbastanza soddisfatto a un anno circa dall'acquisto;i cd saltano molto saltuariamente e solo in presenza di sconnessioni del terreno stradale,anche per quanto riguarda la radio sono rimasto soddisfatto anche se devo dire che mi ha un pò deluso l'rds che non funziona con puntualità e lo ritengo del tutto inutile;comunque sono soddisfatto del prodotto che ho acquistato e mi sento di consigliarlo,non temiate come ...
Excerpt: Ho acquistato in Giugno questo lettore CD. Il CD funziona regolarmente, non si verificano mai "salti in lettura". Per quanto riguarda la radio, non sono molto soddisfatto dell'RDS, che presenta a volte problemi, come pure dell'orologio, che spesso indica un'ora fasulla. L'ho pagato poco e ho avuto 6 mesi di assicurazione contro il furto compresa. Non male questo fatto, viste le alte percentuali di furti di autoradio nella mia zona (Torino).Perchè ...
