Variable illumination and a lot more
The right illumination color can really make a new receiver look at home in your dashboard. Kenwood's KDC-352U CD receiver is the first model in their 2012 lineup with variable-color illumination. You can choose a color that matches your vehicle's illumination, or pick something totally wild — it's a cool feature to have, but that's not all this receiver offers.
Loads of media options
If you tune into your iPod® or iPhone® for your music, you won't miss a beat with this Kenwood in your car. Just plug your player into the convenient front-panel USB input, and you'll enjoy outstanding control right from the receiver. If you're a Pandora® Internet radio fan, you can even pick from your favorite stations when your iPhone's connected.
Kenwood sound quality
Your iPod was designed to work with earbuds, not car speakers. When you're connected via USB, the KDC-352U bypasses your iPod's internal digital-to-analog converter, sending the digital data to the Kenwood's superior 24-bit converter. Your music will sound more natural and lifelike.
Your iPod isn't the end of your listening options, though. You can liven up your drive by loading in a disc full of music files, or by jacking another device into the front-panel aux input.
You'll hear the difference
This Kenwood dishes out a lot more power than most factory stereos, so you'll enjoy sharper imaging, better stereo separation, and cleaner reproduction. And your tone controls will take a step up too — just compare the treble and bass knobs on most car stereos with the KDC-352U's 3-band EQ, high- and low-pass filters, and selectable bass boost, along with settings that let you customize the output to fit your car's speaker setup.
Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?
In most vehicles, you can 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 the Kenwood, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls.
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.
