Summary: This HU is everything I wanted. BT connects from my Android Raz and it is flawless. External mic. is crystal clear, even with the windows down. So many colors to choose from, I love options. Can control my sub and amp from the HU, sweet. The USB hook up is exactly what I wanted. I haven't even used the CD player, may never use it. Sound is Kenwood sound, do I need to even say anymore? Better than Pioneer no doubt. Feel is kinda cheap, not what I expected from Kenwood.
Fantasic sounding, very capable, but display is dimmer than expected.

Summary: Sound quality using an external amp, this unit is hard to beat. It has 3 sets of 4V pre-amps. There are around 100 menu options to dial in the unit just right. Controls are easier to work than the previous generation. Switching radio and ipod is a one touch operations and ipod controls are well integrated. So why not 5 stars? Well, the display loses so points.
great product easy transaction and happy with the purchase.

Summary: good receiver, lots of ways to get the sound you are looking for. paired with a hifonics class d 1500w amp,and a aluminum eclipse 12 1500w speaker. still have not upgraded my factory 5x7's but the kenwood makes my factory ones sound good.the only thing i have a problem with is i have a droid razor phone,and the receiver will not recognize my phone to pair in bluetooth.need to fiqure that out..
Summary: Installed it 24 hours ago, so not alot of time to get everything dialed in. I have slowly been upgrading my car stereo. I have noticed that the head unit makes the most dramatic improvement over other components. I have gone through 2 pairs of speakers and 2 amps. Each time that I have upgraded the head unit it has made the previous upgrades even better. Going from factory to Dual was nice, to Pioneer I said "wow" now to the Kenwood KDC-x995 it is simply amazing.
Summary: This deck sound great. Love the blue tooth hands free cell phone use. The I-pod direct control is great easy to use and I love the I-pod tagging when listening to the radio, if you like the song playing on the radio just push the tag button and next time you syn your I-pod in on I-tunes the list of tag song is right there. This deck is just a tad slow on reading the i-pod if you change songs not that noticable but it is slower than my previous deck.
Summary: Fairly easy interface. Works as advertized. Would love to have preselect buttons on front. I bought it for the aux input to tie it into the AV system in my motorhome. It works great that way and I didn't have to buy a home style AV receiver.
Only CD head unit with BT and HD built in. Buy it,love it,rock it!

Summary: I had this unit installed a few days ago along with a Kenwood SW10 powered subwoofer by Best Buy and I am very happy with it. The glare on the screen that I have heard many speak of has not been a problem for me. Not having direct radio preset buttons has not bothered me either as I mostly listen to CDs anyway.
