Video: Demo of the Kenwood Excelon KDC-X797 CD receiver

I've written about car audio for Crutchfield since 2003, after four years as Crutchfield Sales Advisor, and 10 years as a music teacher. I'm an avid music listener, with a real love of classical and film music. I love having a great system in my car, and I'll still match the system in my 98 Ford Ranger (may it rest in piece) up against anything else I've heard for great SQ. I attended West Virginia University, where I received a Master's Degree in Music Performance and a Bachelor's Degree in History. Let's Go Mountaineers!

The Kenwood Excelon KDC-X797 CD receiver offers some of the latest smartphone integration features for your car, plus the security of a remarkable 2-year warranty. You'll be knocked out by the improved reception provided by the built-in HD Radio tuner, with FM that sounds more like a CD, plus sharp and clear AM. Built-in Bluetooth frees up your hands and keeps your attention on the road when you take a call. And it makes a pretty strong impression with its looks too — you can adjust the color of the button illumination to suit your tastes, while the 11-digit bright white display is easy to read in almost any lighting situation.
