Great Product!

DkHammy, Amazon

  • Summary: I am very pleased with Googol shop! I was already excited to receive my Kenwood Excelon KDC X494 head unit, but when I received my package (completely on time I must add), I was shocked when they upgraded my purchase to the KDC-X496. I feel like a kid on Christmas, thank you Googol Shop, you have a future customer in me!! Update: It's been over a year since I bought the Head unit and it is still working perfectly.

  • Summary: I bought a 14 year-old truck with a cassette player and decided it needed an upgrade. So I bought this receiver/CD player for its USB and auxiliary front inputs.

What a steal!

Cosmo, Amazon
11 October 2011
  • Summary: I've purchased no other brand of head unit but Kenwood Excelon for 10+ years now. Stylish and well-built, you would be hard-pressed to find a better HU for the money. The X494 is almost end-of-life (will be replaced by a newer model) so the price is a steal for what you get. You can attach either a CD changer or a satellite receiver and there is a front panel USB input for your thumb drive or iPod. It plays MP3 and the display is very attractive. Highly recommended.

Great value and good performance.

listen2theman, Ebay
11 August 2011
  • Summary: Great head unit with tons of customization for the sound quality. I am running an amp and sub and it made bass hit deeper and cleaner compared to my old Alpine. I wish there was more midbass but I plan on adding another amp to power my door speakers. I definitely recommend this to anyone.
