Kenwood - Kdc-x395

Ready to go with your iPod®

Connect your player to the receiver's front-panel USB input, then press the "iPod" button to the right of the main control knob to access your player. Kenwood makes it so easy to navigate your tracks and playlists — dedicated "Search" and "Return" keys limit the need to work through menus when you're looking for a specific song.

You can also switch quickly to "passenger mode" to control your iPod or iPhone® from the device, useful if you're listening to streaming content like Internet radio stations. Once your iPod's connected, this Kenwood uses its own digital-to-analog converter to turn digital files into music, so you'll hear cleaner sound with less noise.
Plenty of entertainment options

The front-panel auxiliary input offers an instant connection for a satellite radio or another sound source. You can play all kinds of CDs, even discs that you've loaded with MP3 and WMA files. You can add a Kenwood HD Radio™ tuner or satellite radio to experience the best in radio. Kenwood's optional Bluetooth® adapter gives you the added safety of hands-free calling with compatible phones — just touch a button to answer a call and keep your hands on the wheel while you talk.
System building
rear panel

If you're adding outboard amps, you'll appreciate the clean signal from the three sets of 4-volt preamp outputs. The System E's crossover offers high- and low-pass filters, so you can trim low bass out of your speakers and adjust the character of your bass.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter 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 this Kenwood, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.

Note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Hands-on Research" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver.

I needed a an inexpensive replacement for the factory unit in my ZJ. My minimum requirements were Ipod and USB capabilities. Glare during sunset makes the screen difficult to read. However, this is what you can expect for less than $100. I look forward to upgrading my speakers to take advantage of this HU.

Super easy to instal if you get the right wiring harness for your Jeep, Dose what I need it to do. CAN NOT use and 8GB or larger USB flash drive for your music or the CD Deck will not be able to read the drive. Great build quality, Works very well. I would recomend one for the money. The (3) 4 volt pre-outs will provide good signal to noise ratio when and if you start to upgrade speakers/ add a sub and start adding amplifiers.
