Kenwood's KDC-MP342U CD receiver gives you iPod® control through its USB input, but its real strength lies in its versatility.

All you iPod users will feel right at home. Plug into the front panel USB input it's illuminated so you can find it easily in the dark. The Multi Control Wheel and enhanced search functions make navigating your tracks and playlists a breeze. You can search for a song alphabetically, or by jumping through your playlists in 10% increments. Your passengers can also use the iPod's controls to access songs, or they can take advantage of the full-featured remote control that Kenwood includes with this receiver.
Plenty of options
The KDC-MP342U will also play CDs you've loaded with your MP3 and WMA files, and offers a handy front-panel auxiliary input for adding even more music sources. All your tunes will sound great, thanks to Kenwood's robust internal amplifier and an improved bass boost. Two sets of preamp outputs let you add and control outboard amplifiers, and you can activate a low-pass filter and sub level control for fingertip control over your bass.
