These receivers are compatible with high quality codecs such as AAC and aptX, offering high quality sound unlike conventional wireless devices.
The KENWOOD receiver will allow the voice dialing feature found on most smartphones to work through Bluetooth.

Road noise is the enemy of all audio systems found in vehicles. The inherent frequencies of road noise masks a wide range of the audio signal found in music, and this is the reason KENWOOD engineers developed Drive EQ. Drive EQ boosts specific frequencies in the audio signal to compensate the negative impact of road noise.
Use the graphic equalizer to tailor the sound quality to your unique tastes.
Additional sound contouring is available with the Time Alignment feature, designed to provide optimal and balanced sound performance.
