Bluetooth® and HD Radio™ built in
Kenwood's KDC-X796 CD receiver looks great in your dash, with adjustable button lighting to match your dash colors. But it's more than just a good looker — this well-equipped receiver also features built-in Bluetooth for hands-free calling and audio streaming, along with an HD Radio tuner for better AM/FM sound quality. Plus, you get the reassuring Kenwood Excelon 2-year warranty.
Hands-free calls and audio streaming
Put your phone away. Just touch the dedicated "phone" button when a call comes in and talk hands-free. Text messages? No worries, the receiver will even auto-reply to text messages to let your friends know that you're busy driving. Bluetooth audio streaming lets you play the tunes stored on your mobile device without wires cluttering up your dash and console.
Experience HD Radio™
FM that's near CD-quality and AM that comes through clean and static-free. That's the advantage of HD Radio — just tune into your participating local stations and enjoy the programming with no subscription fee.
Enjoy your music
Your iPod® or iPhone® is at your command. Just plug into the receiver's front-panel USB input and start searching through your albums, artists, and playlists with the easy-to-use controls. If you're an Android user, head over the Android market and download Kenwood's free Music Control app. You'll enjoy a variety of search and playback features when your phone is plugged into the front-panel USB port.
Pandora® from your iPhone®, Android, or Blackberry
The built-in Pandora® controls let you scroll through your stations, bookmark songs, and give a thumbs-up or thumbs-down right from the receiver's face. If you need more entertainment options, you can plug most audio sources into the front-panel auxiliary input, plus you can play all kinds of CDs, even discs that you've loaded with MP3, WMA, and AAC files.
