You spend a lot of time in your car, so why settle for less when you're buying a car stereo? The Kenwood Excelon KDC-X995 CD receiver offers a stunning display with variable color selection, Bluetooth® hands-free calling, and built-in HD Radio™ reception. Factor in PANDORA® Internet radio connectivity and a 2-year warranty, and there's a lot to like.
Plug into PANDORA®
This Kenwood Excelon receiver keeps you hooked up to your PANDORA® stations. Connect your iPhone to the receiver's USB port, and use the receiver's controls to navigate your way through your favorite stations. You'll enjoy outstanding control, including displays of artist, album, and song information on the receiver's screen, along with the ability to give your songs a "thumbs up" or "thumbs down."
Easy iPod controls
You can use the receiver's direct iPod controls to access your playlists and albums, while the multi-line display shows off your artist and song info in clear detail. Grab the big jog dial and skip through your files in 10% jumps, or search alphabetically — either way, you'll get there fast. Plus, your passengers can use the iPod's controls to switch songs if you want to concentrate on the drive.
Bluetooth lets you focus on the road
Distracted driving is a safety hazard. When a call comes in to your mobile phone, the KDC-X995 will mute the music and allow you to take the call without taking your hands off the wheel — it's a safer, more convenient way to stay in touch on the highway.
Superior radio sound
HD Radio stations offer superior sound quality on their AM/FM broadcasts and additional programming on secondary channels. The KDC-X995's built-in HD Radio tuner lets you access that improved sound and extra programming, as well as tag tunes for future purchase at the iTunes® store.
Beautiful, realistic sound
Kenwood's Sound Excellence feature offers audio enhancements designed to give you the best possible listening experience in your vehicle. Highway Sound optimizes your music so you can hear more of the details over the road noise, while the Supreme+ feature enhances the frequencies in your digital files that get lost during compression. You can adjust the timing of your front and rear speakers so it strengthens your music's focus.
You can use the Digital E's crossover feature to trim some of the lows out of your front and rear speakers, and adjust the low frequencies going to a sub, so your system plays more efficiently. The three sets of preamp outputs send a strong 4-volt signal to your amps for superior sound quality and lower noise levels.
Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter 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: 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 or its optional iPod adapter.
