Feature packed but lacks the quality of other units out there. Plan on a 2yr life span at most.

Summary: I've owned this unit for just over 2yrs now. So far, I've had to send it in for repairs once because the CD player wouldn't read and now it has the same problem with the CD player, the USB port doesn't work, the clock doesn't hold time and every time I put the face panel back on, it won't return to it's previous state. I have to manually turn the unit on, which it's never done in the past. I've checked all the power and fuses and everything is good.
Summary: I don't really like the volume knob. It isn't very responsive - you can spin it fast and the volume doesn't change much. Also don't like how you use the same knob to tune the receiver by pushing to one side or the other. Small butons for volume and tuner work better, I think. It is equipped with all of the modern interfaces (USB, etc) and it sounds good. There's nothing wrong with it, but all-in-all, I would buy a different model if given a redo.
Summary: Excelente Producto de Kenwood en su linea premium. Tiene colores personalizables para homogeneizar con la iluminacion del tablero.Display de 3 lineas que brinda información completa de la reproducción. Gran calidad y buena potencia, acompañados de parlantes de calidad es una muy buena opcion para reemplazar el estereo de fabrica.
Summary: I wanted a new stereo to play my audiobooks on ipod or usb. Once you get the knack of a few uses, you really should be pulled off the road safely access basic processes such as finding a preset radio station or playlist chapter; it takes too much focus. The manuals were difficult to understand. I've had this stereo for eight months, and I finally figured out how to access my chapters without unplugging my ipod, manually finding the chapter, then plugging back in.
Summary: this stereo was awesome i liked it very much put it in a 2003 pontiac grand prix mad the factory speakers sound awesome.alot of functions to learn to set up just the way you want it but it only takes about 20 to 30 mins.even for me.this stereo is well worth the money i might even put one in my sons car.
Sound Q is awesome ,using it is a nightmare ! Build stinks

Summary: I returned this stereo after 1 week , I read the entire manual that you have to download from the kenwood sight to make the proper adjustments . If you just pop in a cd , its great ! never got to use the usb so can comment if this was easy to use . having a joystick on this was horrible , Pressing the button would shut off the head unit and reboot it , If you want to listen to the radio forget it .
Summary: The stereo was received on time despite the busy Christmas shipping season. The stereo itself had no surprises which is a good thing since we researched the stereo and knew what we should be getting. For $130 this stereo offers all the features we wanted such as USB port and larger control knob for easier control since the vehicle this went in rides very rough and little control buttons are harder to use while driving, but the remote also makes it easier to use the...
Summary: i had a kenwood previously that was ok. i installed this unit and immediately noticed the difference. an appreciably better sound. you cannot fine tune it as much as you would wish but i had in my car a sub, and midrange amp.
Summary: Installed in a 2000 Saab 93 convertible: Installation was straight-forward if you're handy with this type of thing. Get yourself an installation kit (harness, etc...), and a fill pocket if your car as a 2 DIN slot. Take your time ... solder and shrink-tube your splices. The 'quick-start' guide has a wiring diagram. User Interface: Admittedly a little complicated when you first start using the radio.
Summary: I decided to treat my husband to a new radio that he could connect his MP3 player (a Sony) to. We went to Car Toys. This is the unit we decided on, because it seemed to be easy-to-use among the available options. I was a little concerned that I couldn't see how to tune the radio, but the salesman assured me it was easy with the remote control. He gave us a "quick start" guide that was useless. It just referred to the user manual, available online.
