Our take on the Kenwood DDX770

by Ken Nail
Kenwood

DVD receivers: They're not just for movies

DVD receivers add a new level of entertainment to your vehicle. You can watch a movie on the screen when you're parked on a Saturday night, or play a DVD through your rear seat video setup on the road. Touchscreen receivers allow you to breeze through menus with the tip of your finger. Most DVD receivers feature a USB input for audio from your iPod, and the ability to add an adapter that allows video to display on the screen. Some receivers even offer connections for a center speaker and a subwoofer, so you can build a full-fledged theater in your car, just like at home.

Big screen with an easy-to-use interface

You'd be hard pressed to find a better upgrade for your car's A/V system than Kenwood's DDX770 DVD receiver. It'll enrich your in-car audio/video experience with a variety of tools: easy-to-use iPod® controls, access to music and video apps through your iPhone® 4 or 4S, and Bluetooth® hands-free calling and audio streaming. And you can use the sweet-looking 6.95" touchscreen to change sources, choose music, select DVD menu items, or adjust EQ settings with just a few quick swipes of your finger. For a final cosmetic coup-de-grace, you can even set this Kenwood's control buttons to match the color of your vehicle's dash illumination.

Easy-to-use Bluetooth

The DDX770's features Kenwood's Simple Secure Pairing system. It will automatically detect and pair phones in close proximity to the receiver — with no searches, PIN codes, or other hassles. Your phonebook transfers quickly to the receiver, so it's easy to make outgoing calls — you can even use voice dialing with compatible phones. And the DDX790 will even inform you when you receive a text message on your phone.

You can engage Siri through Kenwood's Siri Digital Assistant Control when an iPhone 4S or 5 is paired to the receiver via Bluetooth. Just press a button to talk to Siri through the included Bluetooth microphone, and you'll hear her answers through the car's speakers. 

App compatibility

With your iPhone plugged into the DDX770's USB input, you can control Pandora® Internet radio, with easy access to your stations, "thumbs-up" and "thumbs-down" ratings, and other major functions. With an iPhone 4 or 4S, you can watch Netflix content on the built-in screen whenever you're parked, or send video to a screen in the back so your passengers can watch while you drive. And you can download Garmin's "Streetpilot" app for iPhone, then use the receiver's screen for navigation.

Play all your other media, too

Of course, the DDX770 plays CDs and DVDs, along with recordable discs loaded with MP3, WMA, and AAC files. You can enjoy other A/V sources by plugging them into the A/V input. The receiver works with the SiriusXM tuner (not included) to bring you the wide variety of music, sports, and entertainment offered by satellite radio. You'll also have control over the music and video content on your iPod from the touchscreen, so finding the tune you want to hear is a snap.

Kenwood's DDX770 DVD receiver

It's easy to keep track of all your entertainment sources on the big screen.

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, then program the adapter for your particular car and this Kenwood, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls.

Note: Bluetooth compatibility of this device may vary, depending on your phone and service provider.

Note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility.

    Touchscreen Display

    Motorized Touchscreen Display: The Kenwood DDX770 features a motorized 6.95" wide, 16:9 touchscreen display with a TFT active matrix system and LED backlighting. The screen has a resolution of 800 (H) x 480 (V) x RGB with 1,152,000 total pixels. This unit has touchscreen controls with interactive video graphics, making menu navigation easy. The monitor electronically slides down for loading or ejecting a disc. The bottom of the touchscreen monitor can be tilted upward at six different positions to provide the best visibility in your vehicle (you can save any one of these positions to the head unit's memory).

    • Aspect Ratio: You can change the aspect ratio for video playback. You can select from Full (16:9), Just (4:3 LB), or Normal (4:3), or Auto (automatically selects to match incoming video signal)
    • Picture Adjustment: You can adjust the unit's display brightness, contrast, color, tint, sharpness, and black level to suit your viewing needs during video playback.
    • Custom Background Images: You can download a still image (800 x 600) for use as the unit's background from a connected USB thumbdrive.
    • Customized Top Menu: You can select and arrange which sources and icons display on the unit's Top Menu screen for easier, quicker access.

    Multi-Language Display: For your convenience, this unit is equipped with a multiple language display. You can select the language which is best suited to your first language - English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Dutch, Russian, Portuguese, Chinese (simplified/traditional), Thai, Turkish, Arabic, Persian, Hebrew, or Greece. For connected external monitors; only English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Dutch, Russian, and Portuguese are available.

    Parking Brake Detection: To prevent the display of video while the vehicle is in motion, the light green wire (attached to rear-chassis) must be connected to the vehicle's parking brake detection circuit. You cannot view video unless your vehicle's parking brake is engaged. If you attempt to view video without the parking brake engaged, the unit's LCD touchscreen will simply display a blue screen and "Parking Off". While your vehicle is in motion (parking brake off), you can still view all of the head unit's menu screens/settings, source information, metadata, and album artwork.

    Front-Panel Controls w/ Variable Color Illumination: In addition to the touchscreen controls, the unit includes frequently used buttons along the bottom edge of the screen. You can adjust the head unit's button illumination from the following preset colors - Blue, Purple, Sky Blue, Yellow, Green, Amber, Red, Pink, White or Scan (Scans through all preset colors). You can also select a custom "User" color that is adjusted between Red, Green, and Blue (values range: 0-31). The Kenwood logo remains red, regardless of variable color illumination setting.

    Dimmer: The dimmer function will dim this unit's display and button illumination automatically when the vehicle light switch is turned On when you connect orange/white Illumination wire of this player's harness. You can also manually dim the unit's display and button illumination.

    Security Indicator: The Security Indicator feature helps to protect the Kenwood DDX770 against theft. Turning this function "On" allows the security indicator light (red) on the front-panel of the head unit to flash when your vehicle's ignition is off.

    2-DIN Chassis: The DDX770 has a 2-DIN chassis (also known as Double DIN or size DD), and will fit in many vehicles with a large dash opening. The unit can be ISO-mounted using factory brackets, or Euro-mounted using the supplied mounting sleeve. As always, please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to verify fit with your vehicle.

    SPP (Secure Simple Pairing): With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), you can easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the Kenwood DDX770 without having to enter pin codes or go through complicated settings.

You can register up to five Bluetooth-enabled devices with the Kenwood head unit (only one paired phone can be used at a time).

    Bluetooth Hands-Free Communication: The head unit supports Bluetooth hands-free communication for your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. The touchscreen controls of the DDX770 can be used to dial a number, answer an in-coming call, or end a call.

    Note: This unit allows you to answer a call or dial out using any option without engaging the parking brake.

    External Microphone: The Kenwood DDX770 includes an external microphone to carry on your side of your phone conversation and voice command dialing. The external wired microphone offers improved audio quality versus an integrated microphone, so you can be heard easier over noisy traffic and road noise. You can adjust the volume level and noise cancellation of the microphone without affecting the other sources. The external microphone features an attached 10' cable terminated by a right-angle 3.5mm connector which plugs into the mic input on the rear-panel of the head unit.

    Note: This unit does not offer an integrated front-panel microphone.

The head unit's LCD touchscreen will only display hands-free calling and Bluetooth audio information (all other functions of Siri are only audible through the Kenwood DDX770; visual data will still need to be viewed from your iPhone device).

    Note: You can ask Siri to get directions to a destination and the turn-by-turn instructions will heard through your vehicle's speakers, while the on-screen map still displays on your iPhone 4S/5. The head unit's audio is attenuated while Siri provides audible directions.

    iPod/iPhone Integration

    iPod/iPhone Connectivity: The Kenwood DDX770 supports audio/video playback from select Apple iPods and iPhones.

    • Audio/Video Playback: The Kenwood DDX770's rear-panel USB (type-A) port and rear-panel 3.5mm A/V AUX input allow you to connect select Apple iPod/iPhones using the Kenwood KCA-IP202 iPod cable (113IP202, sold separately). The unit's USB port handles the control, metadata display, and charging of your iPod/iPhone. You can navigate through your music and video files using the head unit's touchscreen controls and view song and movie info on its display, while your iPod/iPhone charges. The 3.5mm AV input handles audio and video transfer from your iPod/iPhone to the Kenwood DDX770. By using the Auxiliary input, the music travels to the receiver as an analog signal, so you can even play the Digital-Rights-Protected files you've stored on your iPod/iPhone. The unit's rear-panel AV input must be set to "iPod" in order to playback audio/video from your connected iPod/iPhone. Video can only be displayed while the vehicle is in park.
    • Audio Only Playback: If you only want to playback audio from your iPod or iPhone, you can simply connect it to the DDX770's USB port using either the USB/iPod dock cable that came with your iPod/iPhone or Kenwood's iPod Direct Connect Cable* (113KCIP102, sold separately). This 1-wire USB connection bypasses the iPod/iPhone's DAC and sound quality is maximized through the head unit's 24-bit D/A converter, allowing for a Signal-to-Noise ratio up to 99dB. The unit's rear-panel AV input must be set to "AV-IN2" in order to use the 1-wire USB connection. You will not be able to play Digital-Rights-Protected files.
    *Note: If you have an iPod nano (7th gen), iPod touch (5th gen), or iPhone 5; use the Lightning-to-USB cable that came with your Apple device (or a replacement, 472LTN2USB, sold separately) to connect to the head unit. These Apple devices only support audio playback (no video output).

    iPod Control: You can choose to control your connected iPod/iPhone from the head unit, from the iPod/iPhone's clickwheel or touchscreen, or from select apps streamed to your iPhone.

    • Head Unit Control Mode: The Kenwood head unit allows you to navigate your iPod's music library by Playlist, Artists, Album, Genre, Composer, Song, Podcast, or Audiobook. Your iPod's video library can be searched by Video Playlist, Movie, Music Video, TV Show, Video Podcast, Rented Movie, or iTunesU. You can then search each of these categories using the head unit's touchscreen slider function. The head unit also supports Repeat (track) & Random (album) playback functions of your connected iPod/iPhone.
    • iPod/App Control Mode: The iPod/App control mode allows you to control stored audio/video content from your connected iPod/iPhone's clickwheel or touchscreen. This is very useful for the person riding in your passenger seat. The iPod/App mode also lets you listen to your favorite music apps, such as iHeartRadio, SiriusXM, Last.fm, Rhapsody, & Slacker streamed to your iPhone (iOS 3.0+) through the Kenwood head unit and your vehicle's speakers. You can even watch video on the Kenwood DVD receiver's touchscreen from streaming movie apps, such as Netflix & YouTube, downloaded on your iPhone 4/4S (iOS 4.0+), via the Kenwood KCA-IP202 iPod cable (sold separately). The App Mode's video functions can only be accessed when the vehicle is in park and the hand-brake is fully engaged. Not all apps will be compatible with App Mode and App Mode will provide only limited (basic), if any, control over the app. Available controls may include - Play/Pause & Skip Previous/Next.
    Note: Access to your iPhone's downloaded applications will depend on the availability of a cellular and/or WiFi network for purposes of allowing your iPhone to connect to the Internet.

    iPod/iPhone Display: The Kenwood DDX770 will display your iPod/iPhone's music file information when you are controlling your iPod or iPhone from the Kenwood multimedia head unit. The head unit will display Track number, Elapsed playing time, Artist name, Song title, and Album label. The unit will also display Album Art. If you choose to operate your connected iPod/iPhone in iPod/App Control Mode, the DDX770 will not display your iPod/iPhone's music information (the head unit will instead display 'iPhone App and iPod Control Mode + Parking Off').

    iPod Charging: The head unit's USB connection provides 1A of current to power and charge your connected iPod/iPhone when your vehicle's ignition switch is set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position. This unit does not charge the iPad. If your iPod/iPhone has no initial battery charge, then the unit will not recognize it.

    Garmin App: In addition, the optional KCA-IP202 iPod cable allows you to view navigation maps and get audible/visual directions on the DDX770's touchscreen, when the Garmin StreetPilot Onboard USA app ($49.99), and the Vehicle Display Integration in-app option ($49.99) are both downloaded to your connected iPhone or iPad (iOS 5.1+). The Garmin StreetPilot Onboard USA app contains NAVTEQ map data for the United States (lower 49 states); with over a million POIs, turn-by turn directions, lane assist with junction view, traffic updates, and speed limit alerts. Because the map data is downloaded onto your iPhone and does not live on the network, wireless coverage is not required to navigate. Once you have selected your destination on your connected iPhone, your map route will be visible on the DDX770's touchscreen (even with parking brake disengaged) and turn-by-turn directions can be heard through your car stereo speakers. You will continue to use your iPhone's touchscreen to control the Garmin StreetPilot USA app. The screen of your iPhone and the screen of the Kenwood DDX770 may not be identical.

    Note: A Garmin StreetPilot Onboard app with North American maps (US, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, USVI, and more) is also available for $59.99.

    Note:
    • *If you have an iPod nano (7th gen), iPod touch (5th gen), or iPhone 5; use the Lightning-to-USB cable that came with your Apple device (or a replacement, 472LTN2USB, sold separately) to connect to the head unit. These Apple devices only support audio playback (no video output).
    • Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the head unit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to wait until a newer software update is available.

    AM/FM+Pandora+SiriusXM Radio

    RDS AM/FM Tuner: The Kenwood DDX770 features a built-in AM/FM tuner. The unit's tuner features RDS (Radio Data System). RDS is a service used by some radio stations to transmit data outside of normal radio broadcast signals. When an RDS station is received, you can immediately find out what kind of data is being transmitted by looking at the program service name which appears in the display after the frequency. RDS features an emergency transmission function which interrupts regular programming to broadcast an emergency announcement (such as a tornado or severe storm). There is also a switchable Traffic Information function, which will automatically tune a traffic bulletin when it is broadcast, even when you're not listening to the radio.

    • Seek Modes: You can choose one of three tuning modes: Auto 1 (seek tuning), Auto 2 (cycles through and tunes the selected band's preset stations only with each button press), or Manual.
    • Presets: Not only does the multimedia receiver's tuner allow you manually enter your desired presets you can choose to have the unit automatically put stations with good reception in the memory banks automatically; this is a handy feature when traveling. You can store up to 18 FM stations and 6 AM stations as presets.
    • Mono Mode: This feature reduces the noise (static) when a stereo broadcast is received as monaural (for FM band only).

    Pandora Internet Radio: Pandora is the leading Internet Radio music service in the United States, giving people music they love anytime, anywhere, through personalized radio stations. The Kenwood DDX770 DVD receiver lets you playback and control the Pandora Internet Radio music service that is being streamed to your Apple iPhone, Android smartphone, or Blackberry device. Your iPhone, Android, or Blackberry smartphone will need an active Data Plan account with connection to the Internet via 3G, EDGE, or WiFi. In addition, you will need an active Pandora music service account.

    • Connection Type: The Kenwood DDX770 provides Pandora App access via a USB-connected iPhone or Bluetooth-enabled Android/Blackberry smartphone.
      • Pandora App for iPhone: The Kenwood DDX770 provides complete access to your Pandora account using your iPhone, via the head unit's rear-panel USB port. To access Pandora you must have an Apple iPhone (iOS3 or later) with the latest version of the Pandora App from Apple's iTunes App Store.
      • Pandora App for Android/Blackberry: The Kenwood DDX770 lets you playback and control Pandora Internet Radio streamed from your Android or Blackberry smartphone, via Bluetooth (no hard-wired connection required). To access Pandora from the Kenwood head unit, your Bluetooth-enabled Android or Blackberry smartphone must have the latest version of the Pandora App from the Google Play App Store or BlackBerry App World. Your Android or Blackberry smartphone must support A2DP, AVRCP, and SPP Bluetooth profiles.
    • Station Control: The Kenwood DDX770 will provide control over the Pandora music service streamed to your USB-connected iPhone or Bluetooth-enabled Android/Blackberry smartphone.
      • Station/Genre List: You can select Pandora stations from your Station List by date or alphabetically (A-Z). You can also select from Pandora's Genre Stations.
      • Create New Station: New stations can be created based on the current songs or artists playing on Pandora.
      • Skip Songs: You can skip song tracks within a station. You cannot skip back to a previous song. Pandora limits the number of skips allowed.
      • Thumbs Up/Down: You can give songs a thumbs up or thumbs down to help Pandora personalize stations to suit your preferences.
      • Bookmarking: The song or artist currently being played can be bookmarked & stored in your Pandora account.
    • Information Display: The Kenwood DDX770 will display Artist, Album, & Song information provided by the Pandora app on your iPhone or Android/Blackberry smartphone.
    Note: Access to the Pandora service will depend on the availability of a cellular and/or WiFi network for purposes of allowing your iPhone or Android/Blackberry smartphone to connect to the Internet. Pandora is not supported in Canada and only available in the United States.

    SiriusXM Ready: The Kenwood DDX770 comes ready for SiriusXM programming with access to XM and Sirius Satellite Radio stations. Thanks to its proprietary SiriusXM Connect port, you can add the optional SXV200V1 SiriusXM Connect tuner and receive more than 150 channels of exclusive programming directly from SiriusXM, via the "SiriusXM All Access" package (subscription required). Visit SiriusXM.com for a complete list of subscription options and channel guide. Additional features of the SXV200 SiriusXM Connect tuner include:

    • Channel list displays a list of all available channels
    • Category Search searches for channels in a certain category
    • Displayed Information such as Channel Name, Artist Name, & Song Title can be viewed on the head unit's LCD
    • Up to 24 SiriusXM Satellite Radio station presets
    • Supports the SiriusXM Instant Replay function, so you can pause, rewind, and replay up to 30 minutes of live content
    • Channels containing unsuitable content for children can be blocked
    Note: A separate SiriusXM Satellite Radio subscription is required (operates on the XM Network). However, you can easily add this SiriusXM tuner to an existing Sirius or XM account for a Multi-Radio Discount Plan.

    Audio Section

    24 Bit D/A Converter: The Kenwood DDX770 utilizes a 24-bit digital to analog converter for superior sound quality.

    MOSFET Amplifier: The Kenwood DDX770 is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit. The power output specs for the DDX770 are as follows:

    • Full Bandwidth Power: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20-20kHz, 1% THD)
    • Maximum Output Power: 50 watts x 4 channels

    6ch/4V Preamp Outputs: The DDX770 features front, rear and subwoofer 4.0-volt preamp outputs. The front and rear speaker preamp outputs are balance and fade adjustable. The subwoofer preamp output is non-fading. The front, rear, and subwoofer preamp outputs are fixed to the rear chassis of the head unit.

    Front & Rear High-Pass Filter: The DDX770 features an independent High-Pass Crossover for the front & rear channels when your front & rear speakers are connected by the unit's speaker-outputs or preamp-outputs. You can adjust the high-pass crossover from 'Through' (off), 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 150, 180, or 220 Hz. The "Through" selection is a full-range setting. This feature is very helpful when you have smaller-type speakers in the front and larger-type speakers installed in the rear of the vehicle.

    Subwoofer Controls: The Kenwood DDX770 offers the following subwoofer controls, when you have the unit's subwoofer preamp output activated.

    • Low Pass Filter: The receiver features a built-in Low Pass Filter control for the preamp-output, when the output is set to Subwoofer. You can select from 50, 60, 80, Hz, 100 Hz, 120 Hz, or 'Through' (off).
    • Subwoofer Phase: You can adjust the phase of the subwoofer output between 180-degrees (Reverse) or 0-degrees (Normal).
    • Subwoofer Level: Once the Subwoofer preamp output is activated, you can independently control the subwoofer preamp output level (-50 to +10) from the DVD receiver.

    Speaker Type Setting: This feature tailors the DDX770 according to the type of front speakers in your vehicle. You may select Standard (for speakers with a general diameter), Narrow (for speakers with a small diameter), Middle (for speakers with a medium diameter), or Wide (for speakers with a large diameter).

    Preset EQ: Eight EQ curves are preset into memory, allowing you to recall the best preset EQ curve for different types of music. Each preset has its own level settings for bass (100Hz), midrange (1kHz), and treble (12.5kHz). You can choose from the following preset EQ curves - Rock, Pops, Easy, Top 40, Jazz, Natural, Flat, and User.

    EQ Pro: The DDX770 features independent Bass, Treble, and Midrange control when the Preset EQ is in User mode. EQ Pro allows you to adjust the following settings for the Bass, Treble and Mid frequency levels.

    EQ Pro
    Center Frequency Q-Factor Bass Extension Level
    Bass 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 100, 120, or 150 Hz 1.00, 1.25, 1.50, or 2.00 On/Off -8 to +8
    Midrange 0.5k, 1.0k, 1.5k, or 2.0k Hz 1.00 or 2.00 N/A
    Treble 10.0k, 12.5k, 15.0k, or 17.5k Hz N/A N/A
    Note: You can store bass, middle and treble tone settings for each source (Disc, Tuner, AV, USB, iPod, Bluetooth, and Pandora).

    Loudness: This function enhances low and high frequencies to make the sound clearer lower volumes.

    Volume Offset: The level of each source may be independently adjusted to prevent radical leaps in output volume when switching from one source to another. The available settings range from -8 to +6.

    Dynamic Range: The dynamic range can be adjusted by selecting either Normal, Wide or Dialog. Dialog makes the total sound volume become larger as compared with Wide and Normal, allowing you to listen to the movie's dialogue more clearly. This is effective only on Dolby Digital software.

    Key Beep: The in-dash multimedia head unit provides an audible beep to confirm button operation. This function can be turned On or Off.

    AV Connection

    Dual A/V Inputs: The Kenwood DDX770 DVD receiver is fitted with two audio/video inputs. The unit features a rear-panel 3.5mm audio/video input for connecting an external game console or portable MP3 player. This input also serves as the A/V input for your USB-connected iPod (using proprietary Kenwood cable). The head unit also features a composite video/stereo audio RCA input on the rear-panel for connecting an external A/V source, such as a Blu-ray player or mobile ATSC tuner.

    Camera Input: The unit features a composite video input for connecting an optional rear view camera, such as the Kenwood CMOS-210 (113CMOS210, sold separately). The video from this connection can be set to display when switched to this input, or display the rear view camera video automatically when the vehicle is shifted into Reverse gear. The purple/white wire (attached to the rear chassis) must be connected to the vehicle's reverse lamp circuit for automatic video switching. Automatic video switching takes approximately 1.5 seconds. Audio from your music source will continue playing, while the back-up camera is displayed.

    A/V Output: The unit features a composite video jack and 3.5mm audio jack to output A/V signals to an optional monitor and headphone system in the rear of your vehicle. You can select between a 16:9, 4:3 LB, or 4:3 PS Aspect Ratio for the unit's video output to match your connected monitor. The audio/video source which you can output to a separate monitor and headphone system depends on the current source that is being played back on the Kenwood DVD receiver.

    DVD Receiver Source A/V Output Source
    DVD DVD, AV-IN1, AV-IN2, or Off
    Tuner/SiriusXM (optional tuner required) DVD, USB, iPod, AV-IN1, AV-IN2, or Off
    USB USB, AV-IN1, AV-IN2, or Off
    iPod iPod, AV-IN1, or Off
    Pandora AV-IN1, or Off
    Bluetooth Audio DVD, USB, iPod, AV-IN1, AV-IN2, or Off
    AV-IN1/AV-IN2 DVD, USB, iPod, AV-IN1, AV-IN2, or Off

    Note: The volume of the A/V output will be controlled by your rear entertainment system.

    Remote Control

    Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The head unit features an OEM steering wheel remote control input wire (blue/yellow) within the included wiring harness that lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional steering wheel audio control adapter (sold separately). Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible.

    Optional Remote Control: The optional Kenwood KNA-RCDV331 IR wireless remote control (113RCDV331, sold separately) unit is designed to operate this Kenwood multimedia head unit. The wireless remote controller operates off of two supplied "AAA" batteries. The remote operates off of IR transmission so the KNA-RCDV331 must be pointed at the front-panel of the Kenwood head unit within direct line of sight.

    Perfect for Dodge Stealth

    Written By John M., Waterford NY on Wednesday, July 23, 2014
     
    According to the fit guide it won't work. However the stock radio was a double din and I have some experience putting in car stereos so I figured I would take a chance as this is a great unit. Well I can tell you it fit perfect in my 93 Stealth TT. Recommend this unit highly and of course all needed items were included. Crutchfield is the place to buy electronics!!! Next upgrade will be speakers and a review will follow!
    Pros:
    Kenwood name , looks awesome, touchscreen!

    Better than expected

    Written By Deebeecee, Monroe, NC on Monday, January 20, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Nice unit to add video and touch screen to my 2007 F150. Fits perfectly into factory opening with supplied hardware, looks like it was supposed to be there. The thing that amazed me was the improvement in sound quality over my older single DIN Kenwood receiver. I pretty much expected it to sound the same as the specs are nearly identical, but the results were completely unexpected. Much clearer sound and much more volume out of the existing amps and speakers (I only replaced the head unit and didn't touch gains, etc.). Touch screen works very well, easy to use and it makes all the EQ and sound setting a snap compared to older single line displays. The settings memory feature is really a great addition. As many times as I reset things on the old unit after a battery disconnect, being able to recall the settings will be a real aggravation eliminator. Still working on backup camera (weather has been uncooperative) but Sirius/XM and bluetooth all worked flawlessly and the extra display room for text and phone numbers/contact list is truly welcome. Only thing you miss from not buying the Excelon unit is an extra year of warranty.
    Pros:
    easy to set up, nice display, great sound quality

    I'm very impressed with this unit and all the great features. It does everything I want it to do. Installation was easy although trying to get all the additional wires stuffed into the original space was a challenge. I was able to get it in and it's been great. Tech support was awesome!!!
    Pros:
    Ease of use. Lots of great features.
    Cons:

    Kenwood DDX series

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Well to say the unit was a problem would be unfair as it is a quality piece. This is a great unit and I feel is is a great value. The issue was my advisor he informed me this would tie in with my ford sync system took a week with advisors and tech support then it was suggested that I call I data link the conversion part needed to make sync work. Those folks with in a 5 minute call said it work work you need kenwood models so and so to work with sync. So I do have a kenwood unit just not this or from Crutchfield as they would not match the price I found for $250 less so this DDX770 went back.
    Pros:
    Kenwood still is a awesome unit
    Cons:
    Will not work with any Ford Sync system

    Love the new receiver and the ipod connectivity. I had a couple issues with where the RCAs outs sit in relation to the back of my dash, but everything went in quickly and was easy to setup. Looks great in my Sliverado. I had purchased for the Pandora controls and it works great. DVD also has great picture quality. Only down side to the screen is that you can't see it at all in direct sunlight.

    Superior audio and video at a great price!

    Written By John W, Massapequa Park, NY on Saturday, May 04, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I work nights and spend an unusual amount of time sitting in my car. I wanted this unit mainly for its DVD video capabilities which included the largest screen available in a double din chassis. I am blown away by the video which is clear and bright without any LCD ghosting when the action is fast. The bluetooth feature is outstanding and it mated up with my android phone with no problems. The only problems I am having are with the Pandora Radio feature. This seems to be geared more toward Apple products. My android phone has Pandora Radio but the head unit will not recognize it to stream directly. I can however stream it with the bluetooth streaming feature using the pandora App on my phone. I get the music but I do not get the song information on screen. This isn't a deal breaker by any means just a little bit annoying. Another problem I had was the Bass output. I replaced a Shaker 500 head unit. My system has amps and subwoofers which the unit connects to nicely with the supplied wiring harness. I had to adjust the sub woofer output in the settings menu to something like -10 to keep the door panels in my car from vibrating and ruining everything I tried to listen to. After making this adjustment the audio is perfect for me and I couldn't be happier!
    Pros:
    Installation was a breeze as everything is self contained. Video is outstanding and audio quality is excellent!
    Cons:
    Android interface is a little bit clunky but you can work around it to get your features working.

    Fantastic radio

    Written By Brian, New Jersey on Tuesday, April 23, 2013
     
    This is an all around fantastic head unit. I had the Pioneer 5500BHS and after using it for a week decided to go with the radio I should have in the first place the DDX770. Solidly built, no gimmicks and flashy crap, and fantastic sound quality. If you are looking to spend just under $500 for a head unit this is the one. Ipod control is very fast. Bluetooth is great for both calls and streaming Pandora. SiriusXM is great as well. Subwoofer controls and crossover work very well too. Screen doesn't get covered in smudges and fingerprints like the Pioneer. If you are debating this radio just get it. You won't regret it.
    Pros:
    Fantastic screen. Fast iPod controls. Great sound quality. Boots up fast from a cold start. Great bluetooth.

    Hello, Would like to know if KW ddx770 will work with a non-factory backup camera?? Also does this unit's adapter work with Honda Odyssey's audio controls on steering wheel??? Thank you, Very much for your assistance and time. daryl [ Darryl  Jan 21, 2014 ]

    • The ability to retain steering wheel controls with aftermarket receivers will be determined by the receiver you are using and the vehicle you have. For full information on this type of integration (including the parts you will need) please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will also be able to discuss the backup camera with you. [ Jeff Staff  Jan 21, 2014 ]

    • Yes it has an input that you can use for your mp3 and this unit sounds very good. [ JAMIE   Jan 20, 2014 ]
    • Hi andy, What kind of mp3 players do you have? . I used the usb cable on mine with a flash drive and consolidated all my music on to it and it works flawlessly, most mp3 players should work fine thru this usb cable. Neil [ NEIL   Jan 18, 2014 ]
    • Yes it does. Works great. [ STEPHEN F   Jan 17, 2014 ]
    • Sorry. Its on the back side top left. [ JEREMY   Jan 17, 2014 ]
    • Hi Andi, It has an auxiliary input in the back on the bottom right. [ JEREMY   Jan 17, 2014 ]
    • Hi Andy, I didn't see an aux plug. There is a USB plug that you can play music off if a thumb drive.I personally use my bluetoooth Galaxy player. So if your mp3 player has bluetooth then you are all set. If your music on your mp3 is in one of the following formats : MP3/WMA/AAC/WAV then you could just copy those to a usb thumb drive. [ RICK   Jan 17, 2014 ]
    • I need the iPod cable, it won't work with the iPod plugged in directly. But I haven't tried to use any other MP3 player,blue tooth worked for that without the cable. I hoped this helped [ GEORGE L   Jan 17, 2014 ]
    • No but u have to buy another cable, they have a cable that connects to the back, on the other end it has a sub port [ JOSE D   Jan 17, 2014 ]
