Kenwood KDC-BT758HD CD receiver

HD Radio for awesome sound

When you tune into a local HD Radio station, you'll know it — you'll hear FM that's close to CD quality or AM that comes in clear and static-free. And unlike satellite services, you pay no subscription fees. If your iPod's hooked up to the KDC-BT758HD, you can also tag songs that you hear on HD Radio, then buy them later online. And most participating stations send out secondary programming, giving you more choices when you're in the mood for radio.

Bluetooth lets you concentrate on driving

Bluetooth gives you hands-free calling convenience, plus a wireless connection to the songs stored on your compatible music player. If you're an Android® user who's grown tired of your old radio's complicated Bluetooth pairing issues, you'll love this receiver's simple, secure pairing (SSP) technology. If you're an iPhone® aficionado, the KDC-BT758HD gives you full Siri Eyes Free control with compatible Siri-equipped iPhones.

You can talk hands-free by simply touching the dedicated "phone" button when a call comes in. The receiver will mute your music for the call, then turn it back on when your call is complete.You can install the external Bluetooth microphone in an optimal location within the vehicle for superior hands-free communication.

Streaming radio too

If you enjoy Internet radio on your iPhone or Android, you'll really enjoy playing music from Pandora® and iHeartRadio® radio on this great-sounding receiver. You can scroll through your stations, bookmark songs, and give a thumbs-up or thumbs-down right from the receiver's face. For you long-distance drivers out there, think about adding a satellite radio tuner to this Kenwood, so you can tune into the in-depth music, news, and entertainment programming from SiriusXM anywhere you go.

One versatile USB port

The receiver's front-panel USB port allows you to access and control the music stored on your iPhone or Android phone. And if you have MP3, WMA, AAC, or WAV music files on a thumb drive, the USB port can handle those too. Here's a cool feature from Kenwood — Drive Change allows you to connect a memory card reader or USB hub to the Kenwood's USB input and select music from up to five memory cards or USB flash drives.

Sculpt your sound

With all these ways to listen to music while you drive, you'll also appreciate all the tools in this receiver for refining your audio experience. You can pick a preset EQ for your music, or you can tweak the 3-band equalizer to suit your needs. The KDC-BT758HD includes a low-pass filter and bass level adjustments for your connected subwoofer. And, you can also choose the bass boost levels to zero in on your perfect sound. Kenwood's Sound Reconstruction feature gets the most out of your compressed audio files. You'll appreciate the six 2.5-volt preamp outputs if you're adding any amps to your system.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?

In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Kenwood stereo. Connect a few wires, program the adapter for your car and this Kenwood, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

    Bought this radio last year to replace the stock radio in my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee without the Infinity Gold system. The old radio was fine, but I wanted more "up-to-date" features. The KDC-BT758HD had everything I needed! The Bluetooth works great, as I've had 2 phones since I installed the radio (Samsung Galaxy S3, and then a Samsung Galaxy S5), and both work great, I can access S Voice (like Siri or Google Now or Cortana) on my phone and use voice command to make calls, send hands-free texts, etc). Even the caller's names show up on the radio display. On the audio side, there's a ton of adjustments for making the sound the way you want it, and the adjustable display is awesome, as I fine-tuned the green color to match the dash lights of my Jeep at night. The display, like others are saying, is hard to see during the daytime, though is perfect for nighttime driving. But even the USB port and aux input, and even the buttons and knobs light up with the display for the color you set. The CD player works flawlessly, and will read MP3 files. Radio tuner is nice, and HD Radio quality is crisp and clear. Just about 6 months ago I added the Sirius-XM kit, and love satellite radio. I even added some new speakers about a month ago, and even though this unit will sound awesome with your stock speakers, they sound nice with the new, aftermarket speakers as well! I love this unit and would recommend it to anyone! (:

    Pros: Great sound quality, great Bluetooth system, adjustable display-button-knob-USB port-aux input color, HD Radio, SiriusXM can be added on, fine-tuning of sound.

    Cons: Display is a bit hard-to-read in daylight. Buttons are a bit small, Bluetooth microphone's tape doesn't stick after awhile and falls off.

    85% Great!

    I bought this unit essentially because it had both Bluetooth and HD radio built in. I love the features. I love the extra levels of control (I can disable some inputs I never use, I can adjust the input gains per input, I can select from a huge range of colors for the display). But the big let down is the Bluetooth. When it works, it sounds great. But when it doesn't I want to chuck it out the window. It takes what I consider to be a very long time to re connect when I get in the car and turn it on. Often times, I have to turn bluetooth off on my phone, turn it back on, and specifically select media connection to make it work. I also use two phones. I learned early I can't have them both connected at the same time. Eventually I also learned that I can't have bluetooth turned on both phones even if one is disconnected. If there is even a second of overlap between the phones having bluetooth turned on then I get dropouts on the audio. Sometimes I get drop outs anyway. Sometimes if the track I'm listening to ends, and there's nothing up next on my phone, and then I select another track to play the stereo disconnects. There have been two times when it appears the unit overheats and refuses to do anything despite having the AC on high in my car. Because of the great features and what I feel is excellent build quality I put up with some of the bluetooth quirks until now. But it's gotten to be too much. I sincerely hope Kenwood has made improvements in their other models.

    Pros: Lots of great features, lots of customizability, sounds really great!

    Cons: Bluetooth is very slow to connect and 15% of the time malfunctions.

    Wowza!

    All in all, I am very pleased with this unit. This is by far the best sounding car stereo that I have owned. I purchased the stereo, dash kit, wiring harness, and iso screws at Cruthcfield for 204 dollars. The original quote for just installing the stereo at Best Buy was 264.00 which did not even include the stereo! However, Best Buy did the install for the basic price because the wiring harness which included the steering wheel controls that came with the unit did not need to be programmed. The total for the all was less than 300.00. Thanks to Cruthcfield, I saved over 100.00!!

    Pros: I really like the clear sound and being able to hear the all instruments in the different areas of the car. The bass is strong enough to rattle the windows and the high notes are also able to be heard clearly. There are numerous options to get the sound you are looking for with bass boost, loudness boost, hpz settings (cool) plus the normal bass, mid range, and treble controls. I really like all the HD channels that I receive and can go through all the presets through the steering wheel cntrl

    Cons: The biggest most annoying con is the fact that the display cannot be seen in bright sunlight no matter what color or brightness is used! I noticed yesterday that when playing music through the BT that only the front speakers had any sound, the fader control had no effect on this issue. The remote is really not needed since I have the steering wheel controls. The audio coming out is different for each source and have to change settings to get optimal sound. The clock display is very small.

    My big gripe is that the main screen is very difficult to see if there is any glare. I have created a shade to prevent this but this is a very funky solution. i have been told by a representative that this is a common complaint for most car radios. If so the industry has a problem.

    Pros: Easy to operate

    Cons: Cannot see screen because of glare

    Great for the money, but the radio isn't quite as good as my pioneer one in my other car.

    Pros: Great sound, easy install, fit well in my 05 grand caravan.

    Cons: I found the volume button was very touchy and pushing it to go into menus was kind of difficult unless I pushed it directly in the middle, not super customizable, and not quite bright enough.

    Great radio for the price.

    Pros: Pros - HD radio and ability to do digital media (ipod, pandora, android phone or iphone) via usb or Bluetooth. And still be able to play cd's just in case you still have some. Good sound quality. Hand free calls via Bluetooth.

    Cons: Cons - even though this has phone to radio link for making calls, ease of use isn't great. It works, may just need to get use to it. The remote cant access all the features. Cant figure out how to turn it off off (don't mean standby) with the remote.

    I'm pretty critical of head units. I'm a long time pioneer fan but I've put two sub 200 kenwood head units in my cars. One in my 91 240sx and this one in my 04 civic hybrid. The Bluetooth func to onality is pretty good, although slow to connect sometimes and every now and again glitchy, but for under 200 it does a great job. You'll be hard pressed finding a GOOD Bluetooth head unit for under 500 so this one does the job fine. Sound quality is decent, features are pretty nice, and plenty of room for amplifier connections. I'll be amplifying all 4 speakers and a subwoofer so 6 pre outs were necessary for me. The brightness is pretty terrble and hard to read in the sun, but again, its a budget head unit. The color selection is hard to figure out to make your own custom color (I prefer white) but once you read the manual it's easy. I've had an excel on in my other car for over a year so Kenwood head units are fairly reliable. Overall, good budget head unit. Im not crazy about it but when you class it with other cheap head units it does pretty well.

    Pros: Bluetooth, pandora, iheartradio, plenty of decent features, remote

    Cons: Cheap (not really a con considering the price), Bluetooth takes awhile to load, display is hard to read in the sun.

    This unit is just chock full of features! HOWEVER, you MUST READ the manual to get it set up properly. Once you've done your "homework" it actually becomes very easy to work it. Kenwood has hit a home run with this one! For the money, it's a steal! The Bluetooth works like they say, the USB input and AUX input are on the front (nice touch with the dust cover on the USB and the CD) I left the color scheme on multi, adds to the "coolness factor". I added the Kenwood KAC-M1804 Compact 4-channel Amplifier and it's the cat's meow! Just perfect for my '99 Dodge Caravan.

    Pros: Intuitive, easy to set up (must read the manual!!!)

    Cons: None

    I bought this unit for my 1997 F-250. Install was kind of a pain being the older truck didn't have many access points to move wires around. But once I got this beauty in and turned the power to it, all the pain was worth it. Now I must say, I'm pretty brand loyal to Kenwood because all if the units I have purchased have been amazing, and this little guy is no different. Great adjustability for sound, the Bluetooth works flawlessly, great audio quality from the mic ( from what I'm told by people I talk to), the HD stereo is phenomenal, and all the cool colors it changes. I must say that it's everything I wanted for the price I was willing to spend. It'd be hard to out-do this head unit.

    Pros: Adjustability for sound. Sound of microphone quality. Dust covers over CD, and USB/aux openings. Ability to change colors to match gauges, or mood. Bluetooth audio.

    Cons: Clock is a touch on the small side. I don't personally have a problem with it, but if you had a little problem with your eyesight I could see how it could be a struggle. Not enough of a reason not to get this unit though.

    A midrange product to replace the stock unit in an older pickup. Great feature set and performance for the price. The Crutchfield installation kit had everything we needed including excellent installation instructions. gave it five stars considering features for the price.

    Pros: CD/radio plus front-panel iPod/iPhone interface. Ability to adjust colors is actually a very nice feature my son loves. The take-away front panel reduces chance of theft while the vehicle sits in the parking lot at college. Flexible equalizer a big plus.

    Cons: Buttons and display a little small for me though my son didn't think so. ;^)

    Much better than factory.

    There is definitely a learning curve with this head unit. I've had several Kenwoods over the years so I had an idea what I was getting into. If anything, you are given too many options. Take the time in setting it up properly and you will be rewarded with excellent sound.

    Pros: Options. HD radio onboard, music from your phone, satellite radio optional. Bound to be a color to match your dash.

    Cons: Menu and options are not intuitive unless you know Kenwood.

    Great receiver. I usually always buy Pioneer decks because I didn't want to shell out extra money for Kenwood or Alpine. This receiver was a great price and I couldn't resist. The HD radio sounds great. It has sub outputs which made my sub install a breeze. I like that the CD player and the USB/Aux port have dust covers. People on here complaining about the unit being too "dim" I have no idea what they're talking about. It's perfect. The buttons could be a bit larger on the radio presets and seek buttons but it's still usable while driving and not hard to do. And with 22 RMS it definitely improved the aftermarket speakers I had installed.

    Pros: Great sound Easy to use EQ Looks slick

    Cons: Could have bigger radio preset/tuner buttons

    Great receiver. Has all the things you need. Really wanted HD Radio AND Bluetooth. Also, gives you plenty of ways to play your music in your vehicle: CD, USB, Aux input, Pandora, and IHeart. Plug in a USB mass storage device and bring along your entire music library.

    Pros: Easy install, great features and options

    Cons: None

    Price was reasonable for the features I was looking for. I was most interested in the hands free calling and HD radio features. Installation instructions provided by Crutchfield worked great and I appreciated the fact that Crutchfield takes the time to document and sort out all of the needed items for installation. And the fact that everything needed to fit my specific vehicle was included with purchase and was specified for me through the Crutchfield website. I did have some concerns over selecting the correct installation package that was dependent upon my vehicles stock sound system. Being weary of this I called Crutchfield up and they gave me great assistance on selecting the best unit for my needs and sorting out what sound system I actually had in my vehicle. Both the website and customer service were very helpful. If I can convince the wife I will be purchasing another for her vehicle.

    Pros: HD radio works great and hands free pairning is easy. Works great with I phone and other smart phones.

    Cons: Some issues with not so smart phones like pantech on hands free calling. More issues with pantech phone however I phone works great.

    This head unit went into a 2001 Buick Century to replace the stock *cassette* unit. I was looking for a unit that had Bluetooth, HD radio, and a USB, and this unit fit the bill perfectly, plus it includes Pandora functionality. The sound is excellent, and I receive a lot of HD radio stations, and an FM station 70 miles away comes in much better now. Installation took about an hour, and had one minor issue: I could not get any AM reception. This is because my car has a secret AM amplifier built in somewhere, and it needed to get power via the "P. Cont." wire. HUGE thanks to Crutchfield for getting back to me quickly and resolving this not-so-obvious issue! Not all setup options are not completely obvious, so a little experimentation is necessary. Set aside about 15 minutes to explore it. Setting up stations is pretty easy, but the little buttons are tricky to use when driving, impossible if you have gloves on. The station presets are on little rocker buttons, so I have to feel a tiny dot with my nail to engage it. The sound is excellent, and the HD Radio sounds great (AM and FM) compared to analog. Stations tune to analog by default, and then switch to digital if the signal is available and can be locked on. You can get a little more clarity and punch by selecting a preset EQ. The phone does take some effort to get working well. Call someone and tweak the phone settings until they tell you it sounds good.

    Pros: I really like the look of the unit, as well as the ways it can be customized via the settings menus. Bluetooth connects to my Android phone when I get in the car, and you can tell Android to trust this unit, so your phone stays unlocked. Pandora is real nice: we have about 80 stations set up, and they're all accessible through the head unit. For longer trips, it is nice having the ability to throw in a cheap USB thumb drive and listen to thousands of songs without commercials.

    Cons: Display is dim. Suggest a photo receptor to change intensity depending upon available light. Huge glare because display has a highly reflective cover, suggest a matte finish. It is 2015, and time to lose the 1980s LED segment display and go with a dot matrix. Lose the CD reader (does anyone even use CDs any more?) and the unit will have more height for the display. Buttons are very small, lose CD for more real estate. The DIN adapter is bowed under the receiver, despite proper installation.

    AWESOME head unit

    Installed this unit into a 2001 Dodge Durango, the mounting kit and wiring harness included by Crutchfield worked beautifully and the install was very easy and went off without a hitch. This Stereo is the nicest i've ever owned and all the cool settings and functions are awesome! sounded great with my rockford fosgate prime components in front and rear doors before i added an amp and after the rockford fosgate 75x4 amp was added even better. I am also running a kenwood 350 watt amp and 12" sub off of this head unit and it all sounds amazing, the pandora app works great through my Samsung S-5 and bluetooth is clear as a bell. The controls for the subwoofer is a huge plus and makes it easy to fine tune my bass for each application "pandora,aux-mp3 player,CD,HD radio,ETC." this a great buy and you wont be dissapointed, I have read quite a few negative comments about the illumination not being bright enough, I have found it to be just fine and the only time i have had trouble reading the screen was with thefront doors open and the sun blasting directly onto the screen in my opinion this would happen with any head unit and have not had any issues myself while driving.

    Pros: ease of install, inculded mounting bracket and wiring harness, settings and options are plentifull, sounds awesome!

    Cons: none

    I was unable to install this product because it did not fit into the area that the installation instructions said it would. The Crutchfield reps handled it with a lot of class and the return procedure was very easy and straightforward. I really wish it would have worked after reading some of the other reviews. I wanted to replace the existing unit with bluetooth capability which is much easier for my wife who has limited finger use and has trouble turning knobs. I think I need to replace the entire existing unt and I did not see anything else that Crutchfield had that would work. If there are any suggestions I would appreciate it. I am not a pro but probably an advanced DIYer.

    Great HD radio! Love the Bluetooth for streaming my favorite stations from across the country. Pandora and IHeartRadio are a plus.

    Pros: Great sound. Easy install thanks to Crutchfields directions and wiring harness. I didn't need the dash plate for my 2004 Elantra. Thinking of buying another one of these for our mini van.

    Cons: Clock is a bit funky. It doesn't keep the correct time for long. Maybe an update from Kenwood will fix the issue.

    This is a great-sounding unit with a massive amount of customization available. However, as noted by many other reviewers, all that customization makes for a very complicated interface, for instance, toggling between input modes, you have to use two buttons: one to toggle, and one to select. This is needlessly complicated, and not at all easy to do while driving. Hands down my least favorite aspect of this unit is the Bluetooth functionality. It's very slow to respond, taking probably a half second between pressing a button (track skip, for example) and the action taking place. That may sound like a minor annoyance, but it adds up quickly. Given that the Alpine unit I traded up from featured nearly instantaneous response times, this is a huge step down. Also, unlike my former unit, this one does not automatically reconnect when you restart the car, so not only do you have to reconnect the Bluetooth, but you have to hit play again. Again, minor annoyance in the grand scheme of things, but it adds up.

    Pros: Great sound, hugely customizable

    Cons: Slow Bluetooth response time, wonky interface, overly complicated

    Awesome full featured head unit!

    Purchased this to replace a factory stereo. I am flabbergasted by the ease of use, features, design and ergonomics. I also added the satellite tuner, but the clarity of the USB port and HD radio means I rarely use the Sirius/Xm tuner.

    This unit is very adjustable and the controls are very intuitive considering how much you can do with them. Some negative reviews said the display is hard to see in daylight. It is adjustable and it is very bright. Those people need to adjust it. At first I was disappointed with the sound, but using the set up and setting it for 4-5 inch speakers made it sound much better than my OEM stereo. So far my only complaint is that the phone microphone doesn't sound good according to people I have called. This too has adjustments, so I'm hoping I'll get around to making it better. I need someone else to spend time on the phone with me to give feedback on what sounds best. Overall, this stereo offers tons of features and very nice sound. Read the manual and try various adjustments to get the most out of it.

    Pros: Loads of features: HD radio, bluetooth, usb, ipod compatible. Nice sound.

    Cons: Load of features means it takes some time to set up properly.

    This uint is packed with so much cool, fun, and functional stuff, that lately, I've found myself just sitting in my truck playing with it. While it takes some learning and getting used to, the full integration with my iphone and my wifes Samsung Galaxy, are amazing features I wasn't even expecting. I was surprized also, that is actually made my existing speakers sound better and deliver more of their potential. (can anyone say BONUS!?) The ease of installation, and the superior customer service and help on the phone in getting this installed myself, were both a cut above.

    Pros: Everything about it.

    Cons: The clockis a little small for my old eyes but hey, I have my phone for that. lol

    A lot of nice features packed into a single DIN unit at a great price. The settings are flexible, and feed from aux input like an iPod or Droid phone via Bluetooth work great. Definitely outperforms OEM radio in sound quality, and I will probably add aftermarket speakers later to take advantage. However, a few items are lacking: First, the display is barely readable in bright daylight while wearing polarized sunglasses regardless of color or brightness setting. I don't understand how something so basic could be overlooked in 2014. I might have gone w/ a double DIN LED display had I known (didn't go that way to begin with for theft deterrence's sake). Second, it has been tough to get the best position/ settings on the Bluetooth mic. It is VERY directional...the person using it sounds like they are on a speakerphone at the office, or can barely be heard at all. However, background noise seems well managed. I think I'll be able to work this out over time, and results probably vary vehicle to vehicle. Last, the buttons to change preset stations are too small, but this seems common on single DIN aftermarket units.

    Pros: Great value; feature packed, very flexible settings, works great w/ iPod & Droid phones, seems well built.

    Cons: Needs brighter display, larger preset buttons, and maybe a better mic?

    Great product. Easy to install thanks to the included installation kit. I bought this so that I could listen to music off my iPod or friends phones while on the road. USB works great, it remembers what song you were on when you turn it off and back on. Bluetooth audio streaming is easy to set up and sounds excellent. Thanks to Crutchfield for making this upgrade so easy.

    Great product. Easy to install and works like a charm. Very few down sides to this radio. Controls take a bit of getting used to but once you figure it out, no problems. Really like the hands free calling feature and how my iPhone works flawlessly with this unit.

    Pros: Adjustable display color scheme/ease of install/works great with iPhone 5S/microphone was the easiest part of the install/ (which I thought was going to be the hardest)

    Cons: Minor cons- in bright light, difficult to read face/HD radio doesn't provide the dynamic reception for AM sports radio as I thought (however it's better than standard reception) That's it!

    1) The display: I bought this instead of the competing Pioneer product because it has a bigger, 2-line display and I like to read song titles via RDS and USB. However, with the brightness dialed all the way to the max at level 31, I am unable to read anything during daylight hours. Night time looks OK. The culprit is the glossy plastic finish on the face. Couple that with the high and tilted dash placement on my Corolla and all you see is a reflection of the window. I will try cutting out a cell phone anti-glare screen to see if that helps, but you shouldn't have to rig a brand new product. Not even window tinting is enough. 2) "Standby" - For some reason it freezes up for 30 seconds and displays "standby" when switching between radio and aux. Really Kenwood? I could have gotten a no-name Chinese DVD player with navigation for $150 if I didn't care about quality, responsive electronics that function well. I see reviews with "screen brightness" listed as a pro. Maybe I got a defective unit?

    Pros: -after experiencing HD radio, I won't go back to analog! -tons of features -display has two lines, so you can see both the artist and the title, (but only at night, unfortunately)

    Cons: -Display is unreadable in daylight. -Long "standby" pause (~30 seconds) when switching between Aux and Radio. -Pioneer sells a unit with all the same features for $50 less (when there's not a package sale) -Extra cost and space occupied by obsolete CD player. Might as well throw in a tape deck too. I'd like to have paid $10 less for just a media player. -Plastic volume knob feels cheap and offers no resistance to turning, making it hard to operate with road bumps and all.

    Good receiver but could be better with some UI design work.

    Pros: * It performs as advertised. * I can control the ipod (USB) and android (Bluetooth) from the receiver.

    Cons: * Glare of the plastic makes it hard to see the display lights. * Clock is displayed in such a small font that it makes you look down longer than ideal (driving safety concern). * I would prefer an option to suppress some of the source modes when I switch sources. I do not use Pandora, IHeart, and Aux jack so I would like to just step through Radio, Bluetooth, USB.

    This head unit is awesome. My only complaint is that the controls are too simple making it kind of irritating.

    Pros: Plenty of features. Built in HD Radio. Plays MP3s. Everything I was looking for. The Bluetooth is so simple and easy to use.

    Cons: Controls are so simple it gets kind of tiresome.

    This unit took some trial and error to get used to. I purchased it primarily to play WAV files from a USB drive. Initially many of the files simply wouldn't play. I thought I had a defective unit. Turns out it will only recognize WAV files at a specific bit rate and only after being exported from iTunes. Weird, but it works now and I'm very happy with it.

    Pros: USB functionality, plays WAV files, HD Radio, Pandora and Sirius/XM Compatible.

    Cons: The controls are not particularly intuitive.

    The look, sound and features provided in this device are great. My 14 year old vehicle still had a 14 year old receiver so the level of improvement was immense, except for in one area. More on that later.

    Pros: I've truthfully never had a need to utilize the Bluetooth on my Android phone and so had no experience with configuring it, but with all the emphasis on Hands-Free driving these days I decided it was time. It was so easy to sync my phone with this Kenwood receiver. Absolutely love how slick this is to be able to have my music paused and be able to answer a call without having to take my eyes off the road. Setup was very easy. I am generally one who will scour instructions for setup tips bu

    Cons: The display is too dim in direct sunlight. The display is way too dim in sunlight. I read and re-read all the previous reviews on this receiver and saw the numerous complaints about the display being dim. I assume (oops) that the reviewers were exaggerating the issue and that it just probably wasn't that bad. Trust me when I say that the display is completely useless if the sun is shining on your vehicle from any direction. If I had realized how dim it was I would have bought a different

    This was my first aftermarket head unit and I was overwhelmed with all the things you needed to buy, but Crutchfield made it easy with the kit that comes with the Radio. The radio itself is a great product. Very well made with the latest features. It has HD radio the sounds excellent with stock speakers. The blue tooth audio hooks up great and sound's great. Overall a great product with the instructions that were simple to follow! It is a great buy!

    Pros: Blue tooth Audio HD Radio Sound Quality Easy Installation

    Cons: Lack of USB in back

    Really awesome radio! I installed it in my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee without the Infinity Gold speaker system, and it fits well into the dash and only took me about an hour from unboxing to being in my Jeep's dash! The sound quality is awesome, as other reviewers have been saying, and Bluetooth pairing was effortless. Maybe I'll add Sirius Radio in the future. The controls are a bit hard to get used to, but after reading the manual, you will get used to them (:

    Pros: Fits well in dash, Color-variable display and buttons, Effortless Bluetooth pairing process, Sound quality, Feature-packed

    Cons: Controls are a bit hard to figure out at first

    I have now had this radio installed in my Kenworth for almost 3 weeks and it has been awesome. I like the read-out on the face and the fact that you are able to choose how to view everything..(clock,artist, song playing, etc.) and also like the color choices for night and day viewing! The only minor flaw is the HD radio stations fade in and out more than I would have hoped for. But, I think this may be due to my antenna on the truck. Ordered a new antenna, as the top of my current one is broken off due to low branches. We'll see if this fixes the problem. Other than that I love it! Ride On...

    Pros: Awesome features and easy to use and negotiate around the tuner..

    Cons: HD radio not coming in too good, but a new antenna should fix it..

    I really like Kenwood in general, I have had a Kenwood deck in the last 3 cars I have had owned over the course of 15 years now and have never been disappointed. It is a little complicated to use at first but once you get the hang of it you will love it! I had no problems getting my smart phone to sync with the bluetooth feature, which is very helpful. The sound quality was even better then my last Kenwood model that I had in the same car! Overall I recommend Kenwood for the price you can have as good a sound as you would get with the higher end brands!

    I was able to install the deck with the included hardware and have everything running in about an hour. Coming from a factory deck in my 2000 Camry, this was a great move. While I was looking forward to HD stations, I was not expecting better reception. Fortunately, I was wrong. I'm now picking many more stations than the old factory unit would manage. Sound quality is better, but factory speakers are now the limiting factor The Bluetooth picked up the phone without a hitch. Using Bluetooth to manage Pandora and iHeartRadio from my Android isn't all that great. The sound is fine, but the navigation is not. The 3.5mm jack lets me have access to a better interface on my phone. I was hoping that the USB port would let me use my MP3 collection from my phone, but that apparently isn't supported (3.5mm input worked though). It's not the cheapest option, but does afford good value.

    Pros: Better radio reception than factory. Better sound quality than factory. Strong set of included features. Installation is pretty simple as well.

    Cons: Controlling apps via Bluetooth seems to be the only shortcoming at present, but the 3.5mm jack can overcome that.

    We have loved having our new stereo in our car! The HD radio is so nice and we love the hands free calling option. It has connected to our ipad via bluetooth and that is nice for music, but it doesn't work for video because there is a lag for the sound so the audio doesn't match the video, not too big of a problem as we just connect via the audio in. The clock is small but hasn't been too much of an issue either, just a little harder to see.

    Pros: HD Radio, Hands Free Calling, USB and audio jacks

    Cons: Small clock

    I installed this unit in a 2004 Durango. Couldn't have been easier. Crutchfield recommended using the Metra XSVI-6502-NAV wiring harness in order to maintain the ability of the radio to stay on after ignition is turned off until a door is opened. But, I found that the power outlet/cigarette lighter in my vehicle behaves the same way (stays on until door is opened), so I just bridge-spliced the red "ignition" wire from the Kenwwod to the positive wire from the power outlet. Works perfectly. So if your vehicle has this type of set-up, you can save yourself some money.

    Over the years I have installed tube AM radios, cassette AM/FM radios and now, a digital CD/HD radio. if I had known it would have made this big a difference in my truck I would have made this move a long time ago. Working on a DIN chassis radio was a new experience and when I stuck in the two curved wires, pressed apart, and the old radio glided out of its mount like a swan on a calm lake, I was hooked. The Crutchfield instructions and installation gear were exactly what was needed, of high quality and easy to understand and use. I had the old unit out in 20 minutes and worked an afternoon putting in the new one. The installation took longer than it should have because I tried to use a rear support like the old unit had even though the Kenwood instructions clearly said this unit doesn't use one. I watched a couple of online videos on installing the Bluetooth microphone and the hardest part was reinstalling the windshield trim because I foolishly mixed up the screws. I had made a cardboard diagram and screw holder but then put the screws (four different lengths) in the wrong reminder holes. I figured it out. This stereo is complicated and I am still studying up on all it's features. I am an old 20th Century guy and when I started I was at sea with all the terminology. You CAN teach an old dog new tricks. This Kenwood is a delight. The HD radio is great because now I have two new classical music stations. I am a fan of both Crutchfield and Kenwood. Kudos!

    Pros: Quality of both the stereo and installation gear. Rapid and fast free shipping. Amazing number of choices and great comparison tools. And, it was a genuine bargain.

    Cons: As mentioned by others, the lettering on the faceplate is WAAAAY small for my eyes. If this is the only negative one can identify, it is truly praising with faint drawbacks.

    I put this in a 2002 Z3 Roadster and it fits perfectly. The harness installation was a piece of cake once the good people at Crutchfield explained how it went. The power and control of this unit takes so much more advantage of my speakers including the OEM sub woofer. the car now has blue tooth and I have the microphone neatly mounted and out of the way on the driver's side pillar no wires showing. The color selections of the unit was a nice surprise that you can custom to whatever you want. I'm very please with how this unit turned out. Special thanks to the tech support folks at Crutchfield for making the install such an easy experience.

    Pros: Power - Sound Control - Blue Tooth - USB iPod/iPhone connection and controls - Custom Colors - Value

    Cons: Fits perfect but would be nice to have a border plate option to make it really look as if it is OEM.

    Very Pleased!

    I purchased this for my wife's car, replacing a Pioneer radio I purchased from Crutchfield a number of years ago. She spends a fair amount of travel time in her car and I wanted a head unit that would sync with her Android phone easily, provide seamless Bluetooth integration, easy hands-free calling, and easy integration with Pandora. This unit delivers on all points, and my wife loves her new radio! Installation was straightforward thanks to Crutchfield's excellent installation guides. All the necessary mounting equipment is included. Just follow the harness wiring instructions carefully and you will be good to go. I'm a measure twice, cut once kind of guy, so the harness soldering took me a little more than an hour. Getting her phone sync'd to the radio was a breeze and voice integration with Google Now took place without even trying. Pandora, too, plays beautifully through the radio and integrates tightly, even displaying current song and artist information on the display. I was a little concerned about the display legibility based on some other reviews, but it really has not been a factor and is certainly no worse than any other radio with an LCD display. I have an older Kenwood in my car (also purchased from Crutchfield) and that display truly is a challenge to read during the day.

    Pros: The sound quality really is quite good, though the old Pioneer may have been a little more rich and full, but the difference is negligible. Phone quality, too, is very good. The mic pickup does a good job, but it does sound like you're on a speakerphone. Tight integration with Android, Pandora, and hands free phone calling.

    Cons: Like any complex electronic gear, this unit functions are accessed through a myriad of button presses and takes some getting used to. It is not always intuitive but, like anything, becomes more familiar over time.

    Great FM reception with the ability to select HD tuning only, Analog tuning only or auto. Pandora over Bluetooth connection with my Android Moto G works flawlessly. I like being able to use the volume button to enter the setup menu and select settings, it's quick and effortless. The display color was able to be adjusted to match the instrument cluster. The stereo has the power to drive the factory speakers with clear, deep sound.
