    I have had several Kenwood products and been happy with the sound quality. One big disappointment with this unit was the first time I wanted to load a CD the CD door broke off!

    Pros: Easy to install, great upgrade from old factory unit.

    Cons: CD door broke off.

    Like others say, its difficult to see lighted display in daytime. Impossible with sunglasses on. If you use reading glasses the clock display takes a moment too long to come into focus because it is too small. Too much time looking away from the road. Same with the pre set buttons. They are just too small for my normal size fingers and the back light not bright enough to see for a quick selection. The band selection button is located too close to the volume dial so when pressing it I sometimes move volume. One more thing I am not happy with is something I never thought to check. My factory radio has a feature that lowers the volume upon turning off until. So I could shut it down at high volume then when i start car back up, the sound is at a low volume. With this unit the sound when turned off is the same when turning on. Not a major problem after getting used to dialing it down before shutting down.

    The CD door would be better if it swung in. instead you need to open it from a small tab on right side. Same with USB door. It has a small tab to pull open to access. So considering most units in this price range probably have similar functions and sound quality.. I would pay attention to design for my next selection.

    Pros: Looks cool

    Cons: Bad display design. Backlight useless in sunlight. Pre set buttons way too small.

    Coming from an factory radio that id kept since 2002 this was seriously an upgrade. It's easy to go from one app to the next. Tuning is simple and the fact that it get siriusxm is an added bonus. There is so much variety! I can listen to my iphone, USB, pandora, iheartradio, and siriusxm. Hands down there is no way you'll be bored with this radio at all! Definitely recommend. Oh and the detachable face is certainly some peace of mind.

    Pros: Easy access to all apps. Detachablr face. Tons of ways to listen to music.

    Cons: Had to buy a case for my detachablr face.

    Good quality unit. Impressed with the sound quality and easy to use controls. Little bit of a challenge to install, but I think that was just me and my Pontiac. Enjoying most features of it and trying to work out if USB will work with newer Android devices. So far having trouble with Samsung Galaxy S5. Other than that, I'm loving it.

    Pros: Sound quality is great. Look and feel of the device is great.

    Cons: Antenna cable did not match the prior unit. Crossing my fingers the cable doesn't fall out halfway down the road. So far so good.

    Definitely excellent affordability. Easy to install, and looks like its more expensive than it is if you worry about that. My biggest issues are mechanical, sometimes buttons stick or the remote feature doesn't work very well. Other than that, the sound quality is amazing, and the bass is surprisingly good considering that I don't even have subs.

    Pros: Price, sound quality, looks

    Cons: remote feature doesn't work well, buttons stick sometimes

    Pros: -Looks good -Many color options -Many settings

    should have had someone in the car with me while driving to figure it out - instructions that were given by the installer, along with the explanation in the manual was confusing and not able to retain enough to make it work as i know it can!

    Pros: ease of installation general looks

    Cons: did not come complete with screws necessary to complete am 'IZO' install. Fortunately, the installation shop had extra parts for this purpose.

    My only complaint about this unit is the glare in daylight makes it impossible to read the display. Possible mate finish on the display would help. as it is it is usless except at night. Also it would be nice to have a larger clock display.

    Pros: great sound and value for the money

    Cons: display unreadable in daylight. clock display is small

    I bought this to put in my son's 03 Mustang GT after the factory radio ate his CDs. It was a easy install with the included gear from Crutchfield. Total time for the install including wiring the adaptor was 30 min. My son is very happy with the radio and the sound. Makes the factory Mach speakers sound better. The reason for the one star reduction is some times the radio will change the bass settings to +6 upon start up making the bass to pronounced. It does not happen all the time and I am not the person using the stereo so it maybe user error. Over all a great stereo. If I could I would have given it 4.5 stars

    Pros: Great sound and price

    Cons: Settings sometimes change.

    I'm sorry to say that after inserting about 4 or 5 CD's that the unit failed. After calling customer service for advice , and re-setting the unit, the need for deck replacement became necessary. The customer service was great and another unit from another manufacturer was issued without delay. I was definitely afraid of re-installing the same Kenwood unit in case the same thing happened again. I will have to absorb the cost of re-instillation which I'm not too happy about but I understand that these things happen. I would like to say thanks to Crutchfield for outstanding customer support! Everyone was just great, easy to get through to and easy to talk to, and even though I've had initial trouble I would not go anywhere else. Customer service after the sale is just as important as the sale! The attention to my concerns made me a satisfied customer and will speak well of the company. I will definitely do business with Crutchfield in the future!

    Pros: Cool looking

    Cons: Broke after 4 or 5 CD's. I am very careful and go easy on these things. Luck of the draw I guess.

    Overall a nice radio. Controls are quirky between sources. Sirius radio adapter works well but no easy way to change stations without going through direct # via remote or genre.

    Pros: Nice clean appearance. Crutchfield did great on the wire harnesses. Lots of presets and different sources. Good radio with good options for a good price.

    Cons: Volume varies between sources, USB would be better on the back, Sirius control needs easier use. Have to tape all the wires to the vehicle harness Crutchfield provided (easy but tedious)

    This stereo made our 2005 Dodge Ram soung great!!! Was my first stereo install and it went great. This stereo takes a bit to figure out, but after reading the manual and playing with it for a while, it's not an issue. My wife and kid really like the multitude of color choices too!! Hooked up SiriusXM Tuner into this and worked great. XM Soungs so much better than FM modulator hook up.

    Pros: Easy install, great sound, different colors, and SiriusXM ready!!

    Cons: Confusing to control at first, but just unfamiliar with it.

    I replaced the OEM tuner in my '89 Bronco and have been very pleased. The updated instructions that were emailed to me were very descriptive. When I had a issue and called tech support they answered my question before I could finish explaining everything. Turns out that when you call all of your car and tuner make and model info pops up on their screen based on your phone number! Why can't every tech support be that efficient? The wiring was straightforward and the install was simple. Everything is covered in the tech sheets emailed with your receipt. The unit is exactly what I wanted. Enough bells and whistles without breaking my wallet. This is going to be my ski trip vehicle and will see extensive travel this winter all over the country so I wanted something that could play my iPod (USB) when I am out of range of stations or use the iPhone (AUX) to put my navigation app through the speakers during unfamiliar roads. Plus the USB charges your device. I also love that it comes with a remote. Anyone with a full size Bronco knows how far away the radio controls are from the drivers seat. No more leaning over just to change the station. I am so pleased that I am going to update the speakers this week. Can't wait for the snow to fly!

    Pros: *Detailed Instructions *Straightforward Install *Great Tech Support

    Cons:

    My first after market tuner

    This was my first after-market tuner installation in one of our cars. I installed this product in a 2005 Hyundai Sonata to replace the OEM CD/Cassette/Radio that would no longer eject or operate the cassette input adapter I was using and was also getting a bit blinky on the CD operation. Installation with the instructions from Crutchfield was very straightforward though I did need to get some guidance on the wiring for the replacement universal antenna. (The motorized OEM antenna has also gone belly up.) Back to the tuner... I'm very pleased with the performance overall. It does tend to sound a bit bassy and I'm not crazy about the way you change the source from tuner to CD to USB to Aux (which amounts to repeatedly clicking the source button to get to the one you want - but with a delay in response). Even so, I'm thrilled to have the option to connect the iPhone via USB for playing and charging. It does a nice job controlling Pandora and you can program specific Pandora channels to the presets. These work quite well. I haven't had occasion to use the Aux input yet. The device has a removable faceplate as a security feature. I have a little trouble with this because the dashboard trim kit that I got with this unit fits it very snugly and the faceplate catches on it. I just have to fiddle with it each time I remove it and "pry" it out. That's not the radio's fault but a feature of this installation. I had to replace the outer trim ring with the one from trim kit.

    Pros: Good overall sound. Great price point for all the features Nice set of features including USB/Aux/Pandora and iHeart radio support

    Cons: There's a glare on the display that makes it a bit hard to see in the daytime with the rotating color display option. You need a co-pilot to operate the controls if you are doing more than playing/pausing/advancing. Single button toggling through sources is annoying.

    Kenwood KDC-358U was just what I was looking for. Wanted a SiriusXM ready head with iPod and USB inputs. Installation was super simple and the sound is awesome. Crutchfield instructions were spot on. Technical support in helping me pick the right unit and gear was superb. I'm running this with a Rockford Fosgate R250X4 Prime 4-Channel Amplifier through Alpine Sps-610c 6.5" combos in front doors, Alpine Sps-610 6.5" in back doors and BOSS Audio R1100M Riot 1100-watt Monoblock through Kicker 10C104 Comp 10-Inch Subwoofer. Very happy with the overall system. It is in a 2002 Chevy Suburban.

    Pros: All the features I wanted for a very good price. Nice look and display. Sound is very good.

    Cons: Only con is that the clock display is a little small - hard to see. Other reviews complained about the UI, but I thought it was pretty straightforward.

    Great product!

    Still getting to learn how to use all the cool features,. but sound quality is superb, radio & CD player, even thru OEM speakers. I was able to adjust loudness, bass mid & treble to suit the speakers I have. Plenty of power!

    Install easy on 2009 rav4, only 1 hiccup. When i attached everything I found I had no AM reception. If this happens to you, here is my fix, I attached blue wire on Toyota wire kit to the blue/white on Kenwood wiring harness. It doesn't explain it well in the description that this should be done, but after i did it, reception improved for FM and AM came in crystal clear, I think it has something to do with the antenna needing power.

    Pros: Sound improved dramatically, even with stock speakers still attached.

    This is a nice simple deck that has lots of options. The styling is very understated which matches the interior of my Nissan Frontier. Love the USB Features for the ipod. I use it for spotify (even though it has build in controls for pandora and iheart radio). This is my first radio with a remote (which I thought I would never use) but found it extremely useful to help keep your eyes on the road. I would recommend it.

    Pros: Lots of versatility for a small price.

    Cons: Digging through the menu and controls take a little while to get used to. The display even on the brightest setting is almost impossible to ready. Clock display is too small.

    Thanks to Crutchfield, easy install. Operation will take some time to learn, but the basics are easy enough. Everything functions as expected.

    Pros: Great Quality. Great Value. Looks & fits Great. Easy Installation. Sounds Terrific. The variable display colors are especially cool. I like to let it roll through all the colors continuously, instead of picking a single color.

    Cons: Operation is not easy, but instructions are clear and with time it will become easier.

    Overall I really like this radio. I can use my ipod, which was my main goal. The sound is quite good. My only problem is the display. There are about a hundred color choices and none of them is just plain white like all the other radios I've ever had. I chose the lightest color I could, but it still isn't very bright which makes it hard to see during the day. I called Crutchfield and they helped me brighten it up as much as possible, but it's still dim. And the clock is tiny. And it's not particularly user friendly so I keep my manual handy. Besides the display, though, I can't really complain. Works well, sounds good, affordable. I'm happy with it.

    Pros: Sounds good, affordable, easy to use with ipod

    Cons: Display is terrible, and the controls are not user friendly

    Fitting this into a 2003 Audi TT w/Bose proved difficult. The pre-amp outputs on the Kenwood KDC-358U are on the right rear for this stereo. They feed the factory Bose amps. I needed to add 90deg RCA plugs to clear an obstruction inside the dash on the right. If I had pulled out the factory stereo before choosing a head unit I would have looked for one with the pre-amp outs on the left or center. There is little room inside the dash for stuffing the ground loop isolators , antenna adapter and the wiring harness. The Kenwood KDC-358U does work with the Audi TT stereo cover. There is room to close the door if there is nothing plugged into the front panel aux inputs.

    Pros: Good value. Easy to navigate controls.

    Cons: Display could be brighter. I would not recommend this for a convertible.

    This product is a great value for the money. I installed this unit with the Kenwood Excellon KFC-683 speakers. It definitely gave the speakers the drive that they needed and improved the clarity. The radio is much clearer than the factory unit, and some stations come in perfectly clear that were just fuzz on the old unit. I'm having trouble getting the USB port to read my MP3... but it is a non-issue given the aux cable. The only down side is the face is extremely hard to read in sunlight.

    It's been awhile since I have needed to purchase an after market radio and I was hesitant but I went with a brand I trusted and I must say I am impressed. I have a '09 Wrangler with the Infinity system and for a stock radio it was pretty decent. Well after installing the Kenwood I probably should change my opinion on the stock one as the Kenwood delivers quality sounds and packs plenty of power. I certainly upgraded my system and for the price I am beyond satisfied.

    Pros: Great Sound and plenty of audio set up options. Remote

    Cons: Having many color option is nice, but many of them are difficult to see during the day/sunlight. The clock is really small, but I admit I didn't buy the radio for the clock. On the Sirius source, I wish there was a scroll to get the artist and title at once, not one or the other.

    I was looking for a receiver with a CD player since my stock CD player died. I wasn't looking to spend a fortune but wanted a receiver that had auxiliary/USB input and was SiriusXM capable. This receiver fit the bill perfectly and was easy to install. This was the first time I have ever installed a receiver in a vehicle and it went without a hitch. Sound quality is good (I am still using the stock speakers but the unit would probably sound MUCH better with better speakers) and the coolness factor is great. Still getting used to the controls and how to get around but that is to be expected since the stock radio it replaced was a very basic CD/radio.

    Pros: Easy to install, sounds very good, has a lot of features for the money

    Cons: None so far.

    Plenty of features, poor execution of operation

    I was recommended this unit, by Crutchfield. It has all the features I needed, USB,EQ CD, and RCA outputs. The unit, if can believe, is very confusing to use. There is no on/off button, only stand by/mode. To adjust settings like bass, clock or display color, you must work your way through a maze of button pushes and dial turning. To get out of settings mode, you have to back space, multiple times back to radio, rather than it. just doing it ,automatic. The unit has locked up on me twice, where it will not respond to anything. I had to remove the faceplate, and re-insert to get to function. By doing this all my settings were lost and had to be redone, step by step. The display, in bright sun, is almost unreadable. Finally, the sound: weak, lacking high end and not impressive in any mode, EQ or manual.

    Pros: Comes with an impressive number of features, for the price!

    Cons: Awful design and hard to adjust anything, without pulling over. Settings lost when faceplate removed. No on/off button! Display not bright enough to read in bright daylight. Poor sound quality for Kenwood. Might be better with some amps added. I would return it , if it was not in my car, installed, looking perfect.

    Replaced a factory radio in 1999 Tacoma. Good directions and drawings

    Pros: Fits perfectly and was pretty easy to install. Factory speakers sound much better. Installed the satellite package also; very easy.

    Cons: None

    What a difference in sound! Replaced my OEM deck in my 98' 328I. Old deck CD had quit, and the volume control was iffy. Easy installation with the connector adapter. Also have a truck but now find more excuses to take the car so I can listen to the stereo. Never heard kick drum and bass notes so clearly.

    Pros: Easy install, lots of features

    Cons: I like the display color changing. However some colors are harder to see, but this is minor

    Sounds great

    It came with free installation gear and free shipping . Installation was easy and that's coming from somebody who has never installed a receiver before. Very Happy with my purchase!

    Pros: Price, Sound, free shipping, free installation gear

    Cons: Slight learning curve on how to use it . Took me a few days only.

    Great for the price

    A great stereo for the price. The audio controls and features allow for great customizing, and are very user friendly. The USB and AUX ports work great, and USB displays track info on the display. If I have to find something I didn't like, the clock is way too small. This unit has a dual line display, with the option to select what displays on each line, but no way to display the clock on the upper and larger of the 2 lines. The multiple display color selection as a nice feature to match your existing vehicle lighting. Installation kit was a big help, and the factory side mounting brackets lined up to this unit perfect.
