Our take on the Kenwood KDC-119

Kenwood

Why replace your factory radio?

Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.

Let Kenwood's KDC-119 rock your ride with 22 watts RMS of 4-way high power! This righteously-priced CD receiver also features System Q Sound Control to really get your tunes hoppin'. You can adjust the tone to match your vehicle's acoustics with the 3-band EQ, or add punch with 6 preset tone curves (Rock, Top 40, Jazz, Easy, Pops, and Flat).

Kenwood's sensitive CR-2 tuner does a great job of pulling in distant radio stations, and you get seek tuning to help you find stations quickly. Source tone memory stores the bass, mid, and treble settings for CD, FM, and AM, so you don't have to adjust them each time you switch sources.

Features

Dual Info Display: The clock and source information can be displayed simultaneously.

System Q Sound Control: 6 EQ curves are preset into memory, allowing you to recall the best preset EQ curve for different types of music. The preset curves are named "Flat", "Rock", "Top 40", "Jazz", "Easy" and "Pops". Each preset has its own bass, middle, and treble level settings.

Mobile Preset: The Mobile Preset function tailors the System Q Sound Control settings according to the type of speakers in your vehicle. You may select a Mobile Preset setting of "SP-F" (flat), "SP-O" (for OEM factory speaker systems), "SP-6" (for systems with 6" and 6"x9" speakers) or "SP-5" (for systems with 4" and 5" speakers).

Source Tone Memory: This feature allows you to store bass, middle and treble tone settings for each source (CD, FM, AM).

CR-2 Tuner: This unit uses Kenwood's CR-2 tuner for clear radio reception.

Clean Reception System Circuit (CRSC): This circuit controls multi-path distortion by reducing stereo separation. As stereo separation is reduced, multi-path has less effect on the radio signal, improving reception in areas with tall buildings and mountains.

Last Position Memory: If the unit is shut off or switched to the tuner mode while a CD is playing, the next time CD is selected as the source, playback will resume from the point where the disc was stopped.

Note

Display Illumination/Clock Display: When the unit is in Standby mode, the face/button illumination is "keyed". In addition, while the unit is in Standby mode, the Clock Display can be turned on or off using the CLK button. When the Clock Display is turned on and the unit is in Standby mode, the Clock Display is also "keyed". Pressing and holding the source button turns the unit off completely.
