USB Connectivity for iPhone, iPod and compatible USB mass storage devices

Most USB-enabled CD receiver models, feature USB connectivity for audio playback from popular devices like iPhone and iPod. Featuring easy-to-use user interface, iPod browsing is a breeze when searching by playlist, artist, album, song, genres or composer. Additionally, you can use advanced search functions like Reverse Browsing, Alphabet Search and Skip Search to find what you want to listen to, quickly and easily. For added versatility, App/iPod Mode disables the receiver's integrated control, enabling passengers to control the iPod manually including some selected Apps. The same USB connectivity allows users to connect USB thumb drives and external hard disk drives.

FL Display

The bright 1.5-line display makes it easy to see the text information when navigating the menu, your iPod or music content.

Three 2.5V Pre-outs with Crossover System

Get the most out of your external power amplifiers by delivering 2.5V of audio signal to maximize sonic performance. Using the built-in crossover system, you can also easily filter out unwanted frequencies to your speakers and subwoofers to tune your system to its maximum potential.

Steering Wheel Remote Input

Many factory systems offer control of the factory-fit audio system from buttons on your steering wheel. Unfortunately, this functionality is sacrificed when installing an aftermarket audio system.

Install a commercially available steering-wheel interface and maintain control of functions such as volume up/down and track up/track down as well as Bluetooth voice dialing. This increases the convenience of using your system and increases driver safety to another level.

Remote Control

This wireless remote control easily control volume levels, switch music sources or select your favorite tracks with the numeric access keys.

Firmware Updates

The operating system is updateable via free downloadable software from KENWOOD’s support sites. Firmware downloads assist in maintaining system performance when using external devices and emerging technologies.

Latest firmware updates are available at www.kenwood.com/cs/ce.
