Step into a touchscreen radio

If you've been thinking about upgrading to a touchscreen radio, Kenwood's DDX276BT DVD receiver brings a lot of upper-end features to the table, such as Bluetooth®, Internet radio control, and deep sound-sculpting controls that are shown off on a crystal-clear 6.2" touchscreen display. You also get control over your iPhone® or Android™ using a wired USB or wireless Bluetooth connection. It's easy to see why this receiver is a great choice for all your media, including CD, DVDs, and even high-res music files. 

Wireless convenience

Bluetooth gives you a wireless connection for hands-free calling and streaming songs stored on your phone. And if you're not the only driver, this Kenwood enables you to pair two phones simultaneously. And when you're streaming audio, the Music Mix feature lets you pair five phones so everybody can pick their favorite tunes for a mega driving playlist. Don't forget, Bluetooth isn't just about smartphones. Many portable high-res audio players include Bluetooth, too, so you can stream your music collection on your journey. You can even control playback and set up this receiver's robust tone controls using Kenwood's free Remote app on your phone.

Lots of music choices

The DDX276BT lets you enjoy your favorite Pandora®, Spotify®, and iHeartRadio® Internet Radio stations from your iPhone or from your Android. Connect an optional tuner and subscribe to satellite radio, and you can enjoy the immense variety of programming that SiriusXM has to offer. The rear-panel USB port can handle MP3, WMA, AAC, WAV, or FLAC music files on a thumb drive, too.

Kenwood DDX276BT DVD receiver

You can use the touchscreen display for quick access to all your favorite music.

Set the tone

This receiver sports a 13-band equalizer that allows you to set up separate tone curves for different audio sources. And if you're in a hurry, you can choose from the eight built-in EQ presets. Combine that with the built-in digital time alignment processor, and you can put yourself right in the front row of the show. Got a noisy car? This receiver's Drive EQ mode also boosts certain frequencies that help overcome that pesky road noise.

The "video" in audio/video

Besides all the great audio options, the DDX276BT also provides handy video options like a backup camera input that includes onscreen parking guide lines. If you've got a restless backseat crew, you can feed them some video by connecting additional monitors to this receiver's video output. You can watch the videos on this Kenwood's display when your vehicle's parking brake is engaged.

iDatalink Maestro lets you keep your factory extras

The DDX276BT offers compatibility you won't find in many other aftermarket radios, thanks to the iDatalink Maestro module (not included). In a wide selection of vehicles, this module lets you keep factory features that you'd otherwise lose when you install a new radio. You'll also be able to check out engine performance data and other vehicle info on the Kenwood's screen. Once you've identified your vehicle, you'll see the iDatalink module offered on the way to the Shopping Cart if it's compatible.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

    Very sweet the stock radio is in the trash we're it belongs. Had some issues with wiring and called support but waited on hold till my phone died while tech trued to figure it out eventually got it fixed on my own . The confusion was some wires that came with the Maestro were not needed should clairify this in directions

    Pros: Nice upgrade sounds great

    Cons: Vague installation instructions both on the Crutchfield and maestro details

    Really like the look and features. Used in conjunction with the iDatalink Maestro unit. Still have some issues with Bluetooth connections, but trying to work them out. Had the unit professionally installed, and have added a rear view parking camera. Even though I have some experience with audio, I'm glad I had a pro shop install, as there was a little more snipping and wire connecting for the Maestro unit than I might have been comforatable with.

    Pros: Clean appearance. Touch screen ease.

    Cons: Had to get replacement unit as first would not connect to Bluetooth properly. New unit still has issue.

    Installation was a breeze although I was first intimidated by the thought. Really straightforward! I haven't played with it too much but I think I'm really going to like it. For the price point, I think it's great! If you want a receiver that has absolutely everything and that sounds like a concert hall this probably isn't for you but I'm really satisfied.

    Pros: Lots of features.

    Cons: None.

    Very nice stereo. All functions are as described. MUCH better than the stock system. If you stock system breaks, DO NOT REPLACE IT WITH ANOTHER EXPENSIVE STOCK SYSTEM!!! Install one like this, save a TON of money and get a MUCH better system with much more functionality!!! My wife loves it! Installation instructions are a bit tricky, but if you've had any experience installing stereos before, just take your time. On my 2007 Altima, the instructions for removing the existing stereo were complete, but when removing the top 3-pod air vents, be VERY careful. Its very easy to crack the plastic vent pod and also to damage the soft dashboard. DO NOT pry against the dashboard!

    I originally called Crutchfield to get a recommendation and Dino recommended I get the Excelon version of this Kenwood. I waited too long and it went from on sale to clearance to sold out within a day! So I picked this one and it did not disappoint. I wanted to install myself but didn't jive with my busy schedule. I could not be happier. This head unit IMO is very basic and fits my needs. I still use CDs, call me old school, so this unit was good. Some of the features are different from my Pioneer unit in my Jeep was a bit hard getting used to. This unit pushes out 22 Watts RMS from the internal amp so plenty loud for me. I am overall happy I picked this one.

    Pros: Has CD player and basic controls.

    Cons: Basic background pictures. Nothing fancy but is good for me.

    Overall great head unit

    Crutchfield customer from Kenosha, WI on 4/19/2019

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Fits perfect in my 2007(b7, non s-line, non Bose system) Audi A4. Component speakers are loud and clear even though I had to rewire the back speakers because this harness wasn't compatible with my stock amp. My first aftermarket radio so idk how to compare it to any other, but I like how many options I have to adjust sound. I adjusted all of my component speakers to output no bass at all to allow my subwoofer to pick up where my component speakers left off. Able to set gain for each individual set of speakers; never seen that in a head unit and I like it. Bluetooth works great and so does my streaming service, which is Spotify although sometimes it doesn't load on the screen of the radio but still plays. I would like it more if I had better steering wheel control options because there's only 2 or 3 options and they are random and weird so what's the point. I only have volume up and can't scroll down by just one it nearly mutes it but leaves a little bit of volume, which I don't mind but I would prefer that to be another button on my steering wheel. Overall I love this radio and will not be getting another one for my car unless this mf explodes or something. In that case I would order the same one because I'm already familiar with it.

    Pros: Spotify, Gain control, X-Over for each set of speakers, Loud, No scroll wheel just buttons, Ability to turn off screen and still play

    Cons: Minimal Steering wheel controls(in my car)

    Great stereo. Just a little slow to boot up at start. I wish radio stations were displayed on the main screen instead of P1, P2 etc. you have to swipe left to see what stations are favorites. Crutchfield can't be beaten for their prices and support

    A Nice Upgrade from OEM

    2008 Ford Taurus

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I installed in a 2004 Chevy Silverado 1500 extended cab and added a backup camera. I did not have to cut anything in the dash to mount the radio. I ordered Axxess LC-GMRC-01 Interface for GM Class II Data bus (Item #120LCGMRC1), Metra 95-2001, 1990-up GM Kit , DD Mount Kit (Item #120952001), and GM Antenna Adapter Motorola M to OEM antenna F (Item #12040GM10). I ordered a Master Tailgaters Replacement for Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra 1999-2006 black Tailgate Handle with Backup Camera from another vendor. The wiring guides for both the head unit and wiring adapter matched up and soldering up the wiring harness was pretty straight forward. The biggest hang up was the reverse wire to trigger the back up camera and display. Radio, camera, and harness all needed connection. I found a light green wire leading into a block above and left of the brake pedal. I spliced it all in using wire and spade terminals. The mounting bracket snapped together and was pretty simple to install using the machine screws that came with the kit. It seems like a pretty secure mount. It is pretty crowded behind the head unit but I was able to stuff all of he cabling into the dash and secure the head unit without cutting the dash as the instructions indicated and youtube videos showed. Finish was snug and crisp. It is a very nice looking replacement and far superior to OEM from the early 2000's. Syncs up to my cell phone, displays back up cam, plays music CDs and video D

    Really nice unit for the money, easy to use, looks good and works well. Kind of finicky to hook up your Bluetooth device, but that's really the only issue. The hands free calling works great and according to people I've called while using it, it's very clear sounding. I would definitely purchase again. Crutchfield made it so simple to get what I needed, just put my vehicle info in, pick a head unit and they put the rest of the package together. Crutchfield is great.

    Pros: Price, looks nice, easy to use, several settings options.

    Cons: Can be finicky when trying to link Bluetooth devices

    The radio works great, I loved it for the first month. But a couple of days ago I would connect my phone to Bluetooth, and the songs would keep pausing and going again, cutting out most of the song.

    Pros: Great sounding radio, looks good in my truck, easy to install and program.

    Cons: The Bluetooth keeps messing up and I'm still having problems out of it since 1/21/19

    Crutchfield response on 1/28/2019
    Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to Andrew to help him further. We'll either help him get the receiver working the way it should, or help him return it for an exchange or refund.

    Excellent. I do not like exchanging products or having to reinstall for that matter but i originally bought a JVC. The software is very similiar to Kenwoods. The JVC had blue illumination which for me didn't match my vehicle which was fine but it was very distracting at night and i just couldn't adapt to it. I exchanged for this model and it is perfect. Neither in this range or style i wanted had switchable illumination. The homepage and shortcut options are better and cleaner looking on the Kenwood for sure. Menus and features were identical. The Kenwood unit also seems to be a little faster with less lag. Once again amazing customer service by Crutchfield. Delivery time, prewired kit and everything was perfect.

    Pros: Excellent home screen layout and shortcut options. Standard white illumination. Super easy install with Crutchfield's prewiring harness

    Cons: Slight software lag Spotify will not reconnect if source is changed without restarting radio

    Android & iPhone Integration

    Android Open Accessory 2.0 (AOA 2.0) Connectivity: The Kenwood DDX276BT's rear-panel USB port lets you connect select Android smartphones that support AOA 2.0 for music playback. Kenwood does not guarantee operation with all Android devices. There are two Android AOA 2.0 modes to choose from based on what content you want to listen to and how you want to control it.
    • Hand Mode: The Kenwood DDX276BT supports Android Open Accessory 2.0 (AOA 2.0), which lets you connect your Android smartphone (OS 4.1-7.1.2) to the DDX276BT's rear-panel USB port and listen to stored music and music apps from your Android device through the Kenwood head unit. You'll be able to control basic playback functions such as Play/Pause and Previous/Next Track. Other advanced music navigation will still be done from your Android smartphone's touchscreen. In this mode, the head unit will not display song/artist information; only "Hand Mode" will show up on the touchscreen display. You'll continue to view song/artist information from the Android device's screen. You'll also still be able to access other functions and applications from your Android smartphone's touchscreen, while listening to music through the head unit. If you make a call or answer a call from your smartphone while listening to music in this mode, the music will pause until you are finished with the call and then start back up again.
    • Browse Mode (via Kenwood Music Play App): Downloading the Kenwood Music Play app onto your Android (OS 4.1-7.1.2) smartphone with AOA 2.0 support not only allows you to listen to stored music from your Android device through the Kenwood DVD receiver connected via USB, but it also lets you browse your Android smartphone's music library from the head unit's touchscreen controls. You can browse your store music library by Playlist, Artist, Song, Album, or Genre (the music files in these categories can be searched alphabetically or numerically). You can also control Play/Pause and Previous/Next track from the head unit. In addition, the head unit will display song/artist information. You can exit the Kenwood Music Play app to access other functions and applications of your Android smartphone, while your stored music library is still playing through your head unit. If you make a call or answer a call from your smartphone while listening to music in this mode, the music will pause until you are finished with the call and then start back up again.

    iPhone Direct Connect: The Kenwood DDX276BT supports direct connection of your Lightning iPod/iPhone or iPhone 4S with 30-pin connector. If you have a newer iPod/iPhone with the Lightning-connector, you can use Kenwood's KCA-iP103 cable (sold separately) or other Apple certified Lighting-to-USB cable to connect your Apple Lightning device to the Kenwood DDX276BT for audio playback only. If you own an older iPhone 4S with the 30-pin dock connector, you can simply use the dock connector-to-USB cable that comes with your iPhone 4S. You'll be able to listen to stored music and music apps on your Lightning-connector Apple device or 30-pin iPhone 4S through the Kenwood DVD receiver. Video playback is not supported.

    • Head Unit Control: The Kenwood head unit allows you to navigate your iPod's music library by Playlist, Artists, Album, Song, Genre, Song, Podcast, or Audiobook. You can then search each of these categories using the head unit's touchscreen slider function (categories will be listed in alphabetical order).

    6.2" Clear Resistive Touchscreen: The Kenwood DDX276BT features a 6.2" widescreen (16:9) clear resistive touchscreen LCD with LED backlighting. The clear resistive touchscreen LCD provides a high contrast ratio, crystal clear display, and vivid text. The LCD touchscreen has a resolution of 800 (H) x 480 (V) x RGB with 1,152,000 total pixels. This unit has touchscreen controls with easy-to-identify icons, making menu navigation easy.

    • Screen Adjustment: You can adjust the touchscreen display's brightness and black levels for better visibility. During video playback you can adjust brightness, contrast, black, color, tint, and sharpness levels.
    • Background Image: You can choose between nine preset background images or download your own JPEG still image (800 x 480) for use as the unit's background from a connected USB thumbdrive.
    • Home Customize: In addition to the Main Menu screen, there is a Home screen which allows you to customize and arrange your top six sources for easier access.
    • Viewing Angle: You can select your viewing angle (0°, 5°, 10°, 15°, or 20°) in relation to the monitor to make the image on the screen easier to see. The actual screen does not move.
    Note: To prevent the display of video while the vehicle is in motion, the light green wire (attached to rear-chassis) must be connected to the vehicle's parking brake detection circuit. You cannot view video unless your vehicle's parking brake is fully engaged. If you attempt to view video without the parking brake engaged, the unit's LCD touchscreen will simply display a blue screen and "Parking Off". While your vehicle is in motion (parking brake off), you can still view all of the head unit's menu screens/settings, source information, metadata, and album artwork.

    Front-Panel Controls: In addition to the touchscreen controls, the unit includes frequently used buttons along the left edge of the screen. These buttons have a white backlight (not adjustable or variable). 

    Dimmer: The dimmer function will dim the head unit's display & front-panel illumination automatically when your vehicle's light switch is turned On, if you have the unit's orange/white "Illumination" wire connected to your vehicle's headlamp circuit. You can also choose to dim the display manually.

    Clock Display: The DVD receiver offers a 12-hour clock which is visible from any source or menu screen. With your vehicle's key in the accessory or start position, the head unit will continue to display the LCD background image, clock, and button illumination during "Standby" mode. Pressing and holding the Power/Home button turns the unit off completely.

    Remote App (for Apple iOS): The Kenwood Remote App (for Apple iOS 8.0+) operates the Kenwood receiver like a wireless remote control from your USB or Bluetooth connected Apple iOS device. The Kenwood Remote App provides traditional touchscreen control, as well as directional and freeform gesture control from your compatible mobile device.

    • Source Selection: The Kenwood Remote App provides list of the receiver's built-in sources and connected sources (CD, Aux, AM/FM, USB, Bluetooth); so you can select which source you want to listen to from the app on your mobile device. 
    • Playback Control: The application lets you control CD, USB, and Bluetooth audio playback. You have control of Play/Pause, Previous/Next Track, and Repeat/Random. From the app you can also select AM/FM bands, select preset stations, and seek AM/FM stations.
    • Display Information: The app also displays source information such as station number, track number & playback time, as well as song/artist/album information (when applicable)
    • Audio Settings: From the application on your mobile device, you can adjust the receiver's volume up or down. In addition, audio settings such as EQ, Crossover, DTA, and other audio adjustments can be easily set using the Kenwood Remote application.
    Notes:
    • When using the Kenwood Remote App with your compatible Apple iOS device, the application and device must be connected to the receiver via Bluetooth (not USB) for playback of Bluetooth audio. For playback of a USB-direct connection from an Apple iOS device, the device and application must be connected to the head unit via USB (not Bluetooth).
    • The Remote App is no longer compatible with any model Android OS device (as of 1/1/2019).

    Remote Control: The Kenwood DDX276BT offers compatibility with factory steering wheel controls (adapter sold separately) and is compatible with Kenwood's IR wireless remote control (sold separately) for added convenience.

    • Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The head unit features an OEM steering wheel remote control input wire (blue/yellow) within the included wiring harness that lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional steering wheel audio control adapter (sold separately).
    • Optional Remote Control: The optional Kenwood KNA-RCDV331 IR wireless remote control (113RCDV331, sold separately) unit is designed to operate this Kenwood DVD head unit. The wireless remote controller operates off of two supplied "AAA" batteries. The remote operates off of IR transmission so the KNA-RCDV331 must be pointed at the front-panel of the Kenwood head unit within direct line of sight.

    I reached out to Kenwood to see if their support could tell us, but no such luck. I would bet they are adjusting a filter/film within the screen to block out light coming in from different angles to accomplish this adjustment My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Paul
