Video: Kenwood KMM-100U Digital Media Receiver
Zak Billmeier grew up in southern Vermont and coastal Maine. After graduating from Mary Washington College with a Geography degree he still isn't sure quite what to do with, he eventually settled in the mountains of Central Virginia. He spends his free time chasing his daughter around, taking pictures, gardening and cooking. Zak traces the roots of his interest in electronic gadgets to the Casio wristwatch with a built-in calculator he received as a gift one year as a child. He joined Crutchfield's car A/V team in 2007.

Zak: I'm at the Kenwood booth at CES 2013. Matt, tell me about the KMM-100U Digital Media Receiver.
Matt: So the KMM-100U is brand new for this year and it is a mechless receiver, which means it does not include a CD player but it does have USB compatibility for a variety of USB-based devices like the iPhone. It will also be compatible with Android smartphones and USB devices, like thumb drives and flash drives. It will also support a variety of different media files like WMA, ACC, MP3, and FLAC files as well. For specific applications where you require a very shallow radio the KMM-100U only is about 3" of depth.
Zak: That's fantastic. That's the KMM-100U from Kenwood.
