Video: Kenwood KMM-100U Digital Media Receiver
I've been a camera nut all my life, so it makes sense I'd end up being a video producer. Of course, it has been a roundabout journey for me, as I started at Crutchfield in 2007 writing about car audio gear. Over the years I've learned about all the electronic items we sell, and it is my job to make sure we are making videos that you will find useful, whether you're shopping for something specific or trying to install some new gear yourself. My job is a lot of fun because I get to play around with all the cool stuff you see on our website while I'm making videos about it. Getting hands-on with the gear helps me see what I should show you about a product, though the flip side is my personal wish list is a mile long...

Zak: I'm at the Kenwood booth at CES 2013. Matt, tell me about the KMM-100U Digital Media Receiver.
Matt: So the KMM-100U is brand new for this year and it is a mechless receiver, which means it does not include a CD player but it does have USB compatibility for a variety of USB-based devices like the iPhone. It will also be compatible with Android smartphones and USB devices, like thumb drives and flash drives. It will also support a variety of different media files like WMA, ACC, MP3, and FLAC files as well. For specific applications where you require a very shallow radio the KMM-100U only is about 3" of depth.
Zak: That's fantastic. That's the KMM-100U from Kenwood.
