Right on the HD Radio™ button
Kenwood's KDC-HD262U receiver lets you tune into local HD Radio stations for clear, static-free AM/FM radio. You can also slide in a CD, insert a USB full of digital music, and connect a portable audio player using the front aux input. A user-friendly layout gives you easy access to all your sources, while extensive tone-shaping tools make your music sound its best.
Lots of music options
When you tune to an HD Radio station, you'll hear FM that's close to CD quality or AM that comes in clear and static-free. And unlike satellite services, you'll pay no subscription fees. If your iPod's hooked up to the receiver's USB input, you can also tag songs that you hear on HD Radio, then buy them later online. And most participating stations send out secondary programming, giving you more choices when you're in the mood for radio.
The receiver's front-panel USB port also allows you to access and control the music stored on your iPhone® or Android™ phone. With your iPhone, you also have control over iHeartRadio® and Pandora® Internet radio stations. And the USB port can handle any MP3, WMA, or WAV music files stored on a thumb drive. You can also connect a memory card reader or USB hub to the Kenwood's USB input and select music from up to five memory cards or USB flash drives.
Sight and sound
You can use the 3-band parametric equalizer to adjust the centerpoint of your treble, midrange, and bass controls. If you store your music on a portable device, you'll appreciate the Kenwood's Supreme Sound Reconstruction, which breathes new life into compressed music files. Three sets of preamp outputs let you add amps to drive your speakers and a subwoofer. The low-pass frequency filter and level control adjusts the bass going to your subwoofer, letting you make adjustments from the front seat. You can also adjust the color of the display and buttons, so this Kenwood looks right at home in your dash.
