The KNW/USB-AV2 connecting cable from Precision Interface Electronics gives you high-speed access to the music and video on your video iPod or iPhone through your compatible Kenwood DVD receiver. One end of the cable plugs into your iPod's dock connector. The other end includes a USB cable, a miniplug audio cable, and a miniplug video cable, all of which connect to your Kenwood stereo's inputs.
The USB cable handles the control and charging of your iPod or iPhone, so you can navigate through your music files with the Kenwood's controls and view song info on its display. The miniplug connectors transfer the music and video from your iPod to the stereo's audio and video inputs. Music and video images travel to your stereo as analog signals, so you can even play the Digital Rights-protected files stored on your iPod. Warranty: 1 year.
Note: Be sure to check "Details" for specific Kenwood receiver and iPod model compatibility with this adapter.
Why would I need an iPod® adapter?
An iPod adapter allows you to connect your iPod to your car stereo, then access your playlists with your stereo's controls - a great idea for several reasons. One, you can scroll through your song titles on your stereo's larger display, instead of squinting down at your iPod. Two, you can route the adapter cable to your glove compartment or center console, so your iPod stays safely out of sight. Three, the iPod adapter keeps your iPod fully charged, so it's ready to rock when you leave your car. And last of all, some adapters bypass your iPod's internal digital-to-analog converter, using your stereo's superior DAC to turn your files back into music.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I recently bought this item and hooked it up to my Kenwood DDX 514. The sound quality is amazing and so clear. I used my wife's iPhone 4, it was like listening to a CD directly from the disc player. There was no muffled sounds like the one's I get from my USB. I will be getting an iPod Touch soon so I can use it for music and movies. Thanks Crutchfield!
