Video: Demo of the Kenwood KIV-701 digital media 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!

Heads up!Welcome to this article from the Crutchfield archives. Have fun reading it, but be aware that the information may be outdated and links may be broken.
Kenwood's KIV-701 digital media receiver offers the functionality and fun of a video receiver, but in a slim size that'll fit in most dashboards. Gone is the CD slot, replaced by a 3" color screen and a user-friendly click-wheel interface. But you'll have plenty of music to play — with an iPod® ready USB input, A/V input, and a built-in flash drive, you'll stay entertained no matter how long the drive. Check it out in this demo video.
