Our take on the Kenwood KDC-115S
Save $70 off list price!
For the finest in car audio at a price you'll appreciate, look to Kenwood. The KDC-115S CD receiver is an amazing bargain for under $130.00 you'll get Kenwood's Integrated Quad 1-bit D/A converter for pristine CD sound; and 22 watts of built-in 4-way power will really let it rock! A set of preamp outputs is even included for adding an external amplifier for even more power.
You'll see your system settings clearly on the negative green display. Kenwood's CR-2 Advanced Reception Tuner pulls in distant stations like a champ. Be sure to check out the new EC4 equalizer it lets you choose from 5 preset EQ curves (Rock, Top 40, Jazz, Easy, and Flat), so you can select one to fit the music that's playing. Press the handy attenuator button to mute the sound when you want to have a conversation.
