Summary: I bought this to replace a aging alpine i had for 10 years. the alpine was a old v-hybrid 60x4 it just didnt have the features i wanted. still works fine but i wanted something with bluetooth and hd radio and seems kenwood is the only one that has more than 20 watts rms a channel and stays in spec with good sound. i wont be using the decks internal amp i have a 5 channel alpine ill be using. but nether less kenwood always is much nicer with the power ratings.
sound quality is great and bluetooth feature is a real plus

Summary: excellent for the money. love so much I bought one for my other car. the bluetooth feature is great mic can be a little low. Sound quality is good even with bass boost has a lot of hi's. very clean sound distortion is minimal.
Summary: This is the second Kenwood car stereo I've bought. The first was for my truck a few years ago and it still works. After powering up, be sure to disable demo mode in the settings, otherwise it will annoy you every time it is turned on. The mp3 portion worked from both the cd and usb. I was able to pair my cell with it. The great part is it automatically connects every time the car is turned on.
Summary: Overall a good unit, major upgrade over factory stereo. Put it in a Honda Civic and fit and wiring was no problem. Plenty of power to run 4 Polk db651s installed at the same time. I messed with the EQ a lot the first couple of weeks but haven't changed anything recently. Remote is nice and works basic functions easily. IPhone/ipod controls work well with std cables. CD player works fine, has played everything I put in it. The Blue display looks good at night.
Summary: Pure Awesomeness!!! stereo is a little confusing with setting up the Bluetooth but once you get the hang of it the stereo is just plain... awesome! i bought one for my girlfriend for her birthday and im planning on getting one for me when i can afford it! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!
Summary: this radio has everything audio and pone i need.iphone works great with bluetooth,itouch works great with usb connecter. i am very impressed with this radio and its features for the price.this radio produces way better sound than my previous kenwood double din ddx8017 excelon,which i was shocked by cuz i spent $2000 on that radio about 5 years ago when it first came out
Summary: I ordered this receiver to go with my kenwood 6x9's and 6 1/2" speakers... So its all 100% kenwood audio lol. I upgraded the system in my toyota echo with this kenwood system and all I will say is this receiver is AMAZING!!! The entire system is amazing but for real this receiver is the best one I've ever owned. I was unsure how the bluetooth would work with my phone because I've never used hands-free calling before and my phone is not a smart-phone.
