The Kenwood DPX502BT is a good choice for replacing your car’s factory stereo – reasonably priced yet with plenty of useful features including a big multi-line display, sonic adjustments, and many entertainment options. Its built-in Bluetooth makes connectivity with your smartphones so easy; making phonebook transfers, making and taking calls, and receiving text messages as well as listening to your playlist can be performed just by placing the unit and your smartphone in close proximity. You can even engage iPhone’s Siri via the unit’s Siri Digital Assistant Control.
With the pairing of your smartphone and the Kenwood receiver, you can stream music and access applications. Think of the joys of accessing Pandora, an online radio, via a USB port or Bluetooth connection; Aha Radio via wired or Bluetooth connection; and iHeart Radio. Add in the SiriusXM’s add-on tuner and you will never run out of things to listen to on your car trips.
Multi-line 24-color Illuminated Display
Of course, the Kenwood DPX502BT also plays CDs. CDRs, and CD-RWs including those with AAC, WMA and MP3 files, thus, increasing your track selection choices. The CD player has built-in MOSFET amplifier with 4 channels and 22 watts of power. You can control your music selection and your phone activities via the large multi-line 24-color illuminated display with selectable knobs and buttons as well as by remote control.
USB & Auxiliary
The sound matters, too, and Kenwood has ensured that the DPX502BT will rejuvenate your in-vehicle listening experience. You can customize the settings including bass, treble and mid-range for the standard controls as well as enjoy personalization based on your car’s speaker set-up, cabin size and listening preferences.
You even have the option of adding amplifiers and subwoofers, thanks to the preamp outputs, as well as choose from high-pass and low-pass filters depending on your speaker setup. Expandability options are possible because of the USB and front auxiliary inputs as well as the 6-channel preamp outputs.
