Our take on the Kenwood DPX300U
Everyone gets something they like
Perfect for a family vehicle, Kenwood's great-looking DPX300U CD receiver gives you variable illumination colors, plenty of entertainment options, and user-friendly controls. And you can plug your iPod®, iPhone®, or other devices into the handy USB port and auxilliary input located on the front panel. System info shows up in extremely large font size on the display, so you'll know what's up with a glance.
How do you like your music?
Whether you plug in your iPod® or iPhone® to the front USB, load a CD, or listen to Internet radio stations, you can choose from a variety of easily accessible musical options. iPhone users, you can access and control your iHeartRadio and Pandora stations with the Kenwood's controls. You can also add a SiriusXM tuner to access the impressive selection of sports, talk, news, and commercial-free music offered on satellite radio. And the included wireless means your passengers can control the entertainment while you worry about the driving.
Variable color options
The DPX300U will give your dash a face lift, with sleek styling, a glossy exterior, and a prominent control knob that give it way more style than your average factory stereo. When you set the variable display and button colors to match your car's interior, you'll give it extra oomph. Amd here's good news for you Toyota owners out there — this receiver comes with Toyota trim pieces that make it look right at home in your ride.
Sound quality to rock your ride
This Kenwood's built-in MOSFET amp will impress you with its clean power, so turn it up if you want. You can use the 3-band equalizer for precise adjustment of the highs, mids, and lows, while eight EQ presets allow quick shifts to a tone curve that matches your music. The Speaker Settings function tailors the output of the receiver to match the size and type of speakers you've got installed in your vehicle.
Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Kenwood stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the Kenwood, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.
iPod note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver or its optional iPod adapter.

It rotates from one color to the next as default [ RONALD L Jun 29, 2014 ]
It probably needs the update that is almost impossible to download, I had a problem sort of like that with mine. I reset mine and so far has worked fine. There is a tiny pin hole in the front of the unit that needs to be depressed to reset, hope this helps. [ SHON Jul 02, 2014 ]

I have the 500U, I don't think so - have you read your owner's manual? If you lost it you can probably download it from Kenwood. [ Erik Mar 26, 2014 ]

No. The phone needs to be able to be recognized as USB .mass storage device. The new android operating systems don't do that anymore. I don't have the radio anymore but was never able to pair with my nexus 4. I ended up buying a sandisk cruzer fit and it worked great. [ DANIEL Feb 16, 2014 ]
Yes u can [ LUIS G Feb 16, 2014 ]
Yes it has FM/AM Radio. [ JOSEPH Feb 02, 2014 ]
YES [ WILLIAM Feb 02, 2014 ]
Yes it has FM/AM radio. Pandora will play through off of an Iphone and Sirius will work through it if you have the receiver for it. [ DANNY Feb 02, 2014 ]
You can! You can configure your USB drive on your computer to have whatever folders you want. Then all you have to do is navigate to them with the hourglass button on the deck to find your songs. Pretty simple to use. [ BRAD Jan 01, 2014 ]
Yes [ LONNIE Jan 01, 2014 ]
I don't really know. The radio quit working about two weeks ago and my husband checked the fuses and they all checked out but he can't check into it further because he had a knee replacement. I know my IPOD works with it. Sorry I couldn't answer your question. [ DONNA I Dec 31, 2013 ]
Yes, you can play music direct from a flash drive on this unit. [ LARRY Dec 31, 2013 ]
Yes! I listen to music from my flash drive all the time! Works great!!! [ BETHANY Dec 31, 2013 ]
Yes you can. I just loaded some songs to test it. It started playing as soon as I plugged it in. Sounds great and even had the song titles on the display. Also works great with my I-phone/I-pod. Google nav app lowers the stereo volume and goes throught the speakers as well. My wife and I both have this unit in our vehicles and love it. [ JOSEPH Dec 31, 2013 ]
Yes. This is one of the things that I really like about this unit. I just copy files from my computer to a flash drive. I copy entire albums. The display shows all the song info which is also pretty nice. [ JASON R Dec 31, 2013 ]
This receiver does not have a detachable face. [ Jeff Dec 06, 2013 ] Staff
