Step up to the big screen

Make a big change in your travel time by installing Kenwood's DDX790 DVD receiver with its stunning 6.95" touchscreen display. And this great-looking receiver is backed by the Kenwood Excelon 2-year warranty.

Kenwood DDX790

The DDX790's motorized touchscreen offers impressive picture quality.

The DDX790 does more than look good, though. 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®, and Bluetooth® hands-free calling and audio streaming. And you can use that big touchscreen to change sources, choose music, select DVD menu items, or adjust EQ settings with just a few quick touches of your fingertip. For a final touch, you can even set this Kenwood's control buttons to match the color of your vehicle's dash illumination.

Bluetooth that's easy to use

The DDX790's built-in Bluetooth sets new marks for ease of use. Kenwood's Simple Secure Pairing system 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.

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

Cool app compatibility

With your iPhone plugged into the DDX790'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. If you have 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 DDX790 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.

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 with this receiver.

    Good for the money

    I switched from a Pioneer AVH to this model because I was looking for a unit with XM capability. My first thought when I started using the unit was that it was very basic. If you are looking for a unit that has some flashy looks then this one isn't for you. It's impossible to change the screen colors leaving the black/blue/white theme on there all the time. I wish there were some other options for this. As far as sound quality I would give this an A+. I have a 500w Alpine amp and a 10" Kicker sub. This radio has a MUCH better EQ system than my old head unit. It really made my system come alive. What it lacks in looks it makes up for with sound quality 5 times over. Overall I would buy this again. Especially for the money.

    Pros: Sound quality. Easy setup. Great EQ.

    Cons: Boring looks and style.

    I purchased a refurbished unit and unfortunately it was defective. The display flickers intermittently and turns white after a few minutes of operation. The only way to see anything on the screen again is to cycle the ignition or turn the unit off and back on.

    I give it 5 stars because it is a great unit! The only down side to this is its only compatible with iPhones and iPods. I have an android and do not planning on switching it. But over all. The Bluetooth connects to my phone great! And does play all my music. The only thing that is a down fall is I live In minnesota and when you start the car in the morning and the blue tooth will only pick up the telephone part not the music. So what I have to do is shut off my car and open my door to turn the radio off. Then restart my car. But other then that a great radio!

    Awesome product. Being refurbished at this price was a great deal. It's a beautiful product and it fit perfectly into my car. Sound quality was above and beyond as well. The touch screen is super responsive and very quick with no lag.

    Pros: Fast, responsive, cool looking, Bluetooth hand free calling works awesome with Siri .

    Cons: Hooking it up was a little difficult, but that was my fault!

    Over all this is a really good stereo

    Pros: Its made by Kenwood.. It's easy to use, you can use a custom background image, the load time on the USB and the DVDs is pretty quick I would say it takes about ten seconds or so not bad IMO. The display is great the images show clear. If you have album art on any of the the devices it'll show the album art which I think is really cool. There's a lot extras in this Kenwood stereo. All in all it's a great buy.

    Cons: When streaming music through Bluetooth it for some odd reason turns off the Subs!!!. Maybe it's something I did wrong but I'm not sure because everything else is in order. If anyone else knows how to keep the Subs on when streaming music through Bluetooth please help a brotha out. I would give it a five star but due to the problem of my subs not playing only when I stream music through my IPhone 5 I had to take that extra star but overall it's a great stereo

    Crutchfield response on Wednesday, March 05, 2014 This problem arose because the default setting for Bluetooth on Kenwood receivers is that the incoming signal will only play through the front speakers. Our tech support team contacted Jerome to help him change that setting from "Front" to "All", which enables the incoming Bluetooth audio signal to play through his full system, including his subwoofers. That's the kind of service you get when purchasing from Crutchfield.

    Great stereo, replaced factory unit in 2013 challenger base model. The sound was better even from factory speakers, can't wait to replace speakers to make it even better. Couldn't be happier. The screen is flawless for dvds. The integration wiring was intimidating at first glance, but was easy to install and worked correctly the first time. Had to cut off mounting tabs or rests for factory radio. Easy to do and radio fits in dash very nicely with the adapter that was included.

    Pros: Bluetooth Backup camera Sirius

    Cons: Unattractive screen while listening to radio.

    Overall this is a good unit it does everything anyone can want out of a unit like this and more. It does has a lot of flash or any graphics that jumps around the screen.

    If a little more flash I suggest you look at the higher end models, will cost more but it worth it.

    Pros: Expandability, good sound, iPhone friendly

    Cons: No screen graphics

    As always I can count on kenwood to deliver a solid product. For far to long manufacturers were ignoring the GUI aspect of in dash monitor/head units. Pioneer got on board first but kenwood perfected it IMHO. The menus and swipes work in an almost flawless manner. The sound is great and the controls and head unit itself are very attractive. It compliments my dash so well. It's not perfect, sometimes my bluetooth is spotty and the iPod interface is a tad glitchy but I haven't come across a single head unit that has minor issues. My factory navigation head unit on my 2013 4runner has a far glitchier iPod interface.

    Pros: Looks, GUI, sound, screen size

    Cons: No remote...... That's it!

    Good unit overall, however, would think a high-dollar unit would have more flash to it, like when the radio or CD is playing, having some pattern or whatever going... kinda plain when stuff is playing. Bluetooth sometimes "forgets" that my phone can play Pandora and I have to select it again in the set up. That might be fixed in future software updates. Looks great in the dash with huge screen and small buttons at the bottom. I would also have liked this unit to have more advanced integration with smartphones, like MirrorLink or the like.

    Pros: Looks great. Sounds great. Many features and can connect so many different devices.

    Cons: Lacks wow-factor that you might expect from high-dollar unit. Bluetooth sometimes quirky

    Overall a solid unit. Wish the volume controls were larger, but you lose that functionality with a touch screen. Touch sensors are very responsive and layout is easy to change. Had an issue with the iPod plug-in with my iPhone 5 for the first couple days, but Crutchfield tech support walked me through a solution in 5 minutes. Works great, very functional and instantly increased sound quality in a Subaru Legacy

    Kenwood implies that it works with the Iphone 5. it does but it doesn't live up to this claim very well. It has to be connected by the USB port to work as I'd like. Could have better designed screen, the radio preset display buttons are awful. I would have looked at other head units if I'd known that it didn't do more with the phone. Otherwise it's a solid unit that I'll be happy with for the next few years.

    Pros: Good sound quality !

    Cons: Lack of full integration with the Iphone 5

    Very nice unit.

    I purchased this unit on tuesday and arrived on thursday. I installed it the same day in about 2.5 hours including the rear camera and the Sirius antenna/tuner. This is only the second time I installed a radio in my car in over 30 years. It is extremely easy and the Crutchfield support department only a phone call away. I called them on some clarification on the wires connections and they took me through the connection of every single wire. How is that for customer service? The unit looks great and it sounds really good with the ford factory speakers, I can't wait to get some great aftermarket speakers. Everything went smooth. Thank you Crutchfield for making this a great experience. However Sirius is another thing. They are terrible. It took me almost 2 hours and 8 calls to get service. First they could not find the unit number, then the unit did not qualify for the trial period, then it was not the right number but had to call the "Tuners" department, then it was the online service. I was ready to take the tuner out and send it back. Finaly I got a manager on line and called the right department directly and instructed them to connect service to the unit.

    I will be back to buy more from Crutchfield. Sirius not so sure.

    Pros: Easy installation with the reccomended accessories. Gret quality and service. Money well spent.

    Cons: Sirius connection is painfull.

    I'm very torn about this product. My radio reception isn't very good with this head unit. There is always static on stations that were normally clear. The video looks great when playing a dvd or using the back up camera. The bluetooth audio and Pandora streaming are great (when my phone (Galaxy S3) is in wifi or 4G range). When its using 3G its a nightmare although that isn't really a knock on the head unit. This unit came with a free back up camera which made it worthwhile. Without the free camera, I probably would've gone with something different.

    Pros: Great video quality. Large screen. Very responsive and easy to customize and flip between various audio/video sources. Overall, a good head unit.

    Cons: Radio reception has definitely suffered in a major way. Little in the way of Android support. Audio quality is a little less than my factory Boston acoustic set up.

    I Installed this in my Corolla and with the steering wheel adapter and it works flawlessly , good reception but dont care about a.m. or f.m. radio , I bought the Sirius tuner to go with it , the hardest part of the whole install was dealing with Sirius to get that going . I have a Samsung Galaxy S 4 and it pairs right up no issues and the Pandora app is awesome , it has made the car stereo sound much better really happy with this purchase and it even came with a free back up camera , i hooked up my 4th gen Ipod touch and no work tried another cable still didnt work called Crutchfield and was told you need the Kenwood kc ip 202 cable , not true i used the 4th gen cable and an extra 1/8 male to male stereo cable and guess what the audio works not sure if the video works once again i dont care ,, all in all so far happy with my purchase and like the free stuff that comes with it ,, thanks again Crutchfield .

    Pros: nice looking head unit screen is large good for us old people,, and the bluetooth is awesome

    Cons: being told you need to buy another cable to play the ipod ,, just not true ,,, read my review

    I bought this unit because it specifically would use the Garmin Streetsmart system on my iPhone. The Garmin software and maps cost about $35 on iTunes. In order to display this software while plugged into this head unit there is an additional charge of about $50. I don't know how Garmin and Kenwood split the extra money, but I think a 140% adder is ridiculous. I've tried other apps including TomTom on the phone and the Kenwood doesn't display anything even with the parking interlock satisfied. So, if you want to use your iPhone/iPod apps buy something else.

    The audio seems to be pretty good. I like being able to change the frequency definitions and the crossover network for the various speakers. I don't have the rear camera connected yet, but expect to have no trouble as the screen looks fine.

    I wish there were more dimming controls for the screen. It's very bright while driving at night. It's easy to get the screen on and off so that's not too bad.

    Pros: Good audio, good video, good looking

    Cons: Terrible iPhone app integration. For this price I have to pay extra to use apps?

    Overall a great purchase

    A well built double din deck for my 07 tundra. Have had quite a few people be impressed with the profession look it brings with the right accessories picked my crutchfield.

    Pros: All around solid Love the back up camera that came with it too

    Cons: Slightly annoyed by the fact USB movies have to be in mpeg1 format

    I am extremely happy with this head unit. I tested it out before replacing my factory speakers and this unit alone made a huge difference. With my Infinity speakers, the combination blows me away. The touch screen is WAY more responsive than I was hoping for, and the display is customizable so you can always see your primarily used inputs. Also, the Bluetooth is working flawlessly so far. Looks like it came factory from Ford in my '04 F150. Build quality is outstanding. So far I couldn't be happier.

    Pros: Bluetooth, Touchscreen Responsiveness, Screen Size, iPhone (4) integration, Sound Quality, EQ Settings

    Cons: None yet

    This went into a '13 Subaru Outback. The stock radio is terrible. The Kenwood has mush greater power and sound. Nicely adjustable EQ. You can change the bass, mid and treble frequencies plus the width. It also has a LPF which is nice. Even the FM signal is much stronger than the stock radio. Pairing via Bluetooth to my Blackberry Q10 was easy. The touchscreen works very well. The buttons are a little small but, what would I expect with a full screen display.

    Pros: sounds great, good EQ settings, nice screen, lot of inputs.

    Cons: small buttons (very minor niggle)

    Great unit for the price, I will tell you that it made stock speakers in my car come to life. Good features, but very slow to get them started. Bluetooth takes a while to lock in, and Pandora app via Bluetooth is VERY slow opening up, once open, a good interface. Reception is not the greatest either. Talked to crutchfield about it, and they send me a new ant amp, but still no help, unit keeps cutting out from stereo, non stereo. I like things to work how they are supposed to work, I HATE having to deal or accept things for the sake of others. I think Bluetooth needs to be corrected, as well as reception issues. I had the unit 2 weeks now, and honestly thinking about sending back and going with the stock unit, at least Bluetooth works as it should, and locks in almost instantly.

    Pros: good styling, easy setup

    Cons: Bluetooth issues, making all the other apps on this unit horrible.

    Nice DVD Head Unit

    This is my first double din purchase and the Kenwood delivers in every way. The controls are easy to figure out and use. Kenwood makes a top quality product!

    Pros: Bluetooth music streaming is great! Easy to figure out how to operate the unit without spending hours with a manual! Sounds great!

    Nice

    I Love this HU, I had the Galaxy Note 2 and it connected pretty well. But then I noticed on the box it says it is Made for Windows Media, so I got the Lumia 928 and it is a way better experience with this setup. It is the best collaboration you can get with this Head Unit. Awesome!!!!

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Nothing

    I researched a lot of receivers before I bought this unit. I wanted a flat touch screen with backup camera capable, bluetooth, handsfree calling, had to work with my iPhone 5. Crutchfield offered this receiver with a backup camera just what I needed, great price too. Well it does all I wanted quite seamlessly the iPhone 5 worked perfect I actually made my first call to Crutchfield support because I couldn't get any volume through the USB connector with the iPhone, had the change to input 2 and then it worked great. Was a bit tight fitting in the Jeep dash you have to cut the top of the factory mounting bracket, the MasterSheet says to remove the bracket however after trying to do that I figured it's not coming out so I remembered the Tech telling me I would have to cut the top off the bracket so I did that with a dremal tool. Than I had to cut two plastic tabs with a hack saw. After that the fit was perfect used the trim plate that Crutchfield provided, looks like a factory install. I used the recommended PAC C2R-CHY4 harness to link to the factory harness.

    The backup camera works perfect great clear video, the PAC C2R-CHY4 links that up with the reverse wire input and the DVD worked great with the parking break input as well. Because of the location of the license plate on the jeep being off to the side I fabricated a bracket to mount the camera about three inches above the hitch which gives me a center view with camera parking lines. Couldn't be happier!

    Pros: Great Looks, ease of use, bluetooth, hands free calling, great sound, real nice screen.

    Cons: None

    Great HU !

    After getting rid of a Clarion this radio is really nice. The only problem, I can't get any sound to work using the iPhone cable.

    Pros: Easy to install and nice looking HU

    Cons: iPhone cable has audio issues
