An affordable multimedia centerpiece
Whether it's CDs, music on USB, streaming audio, or radio, I like to have all my options open when I'm on the road, and I know I'm not alone. Kenwood's DDX573BH DVD receiver includes Bluetooth®, a built-in HD Radio® tuner, an option for adding satellite radio, and serious connectivity for smartphones, all controlled by a sharp 6.2" touchscreen display. Add in the new super-simple user interface and some sleek styling, and you've got a versatile multimedia jukebox that'll look great in your dash.
Wireless convenience thanks to Bluetooth
Bluetooth gives you hands-free calling convenience, plus a wireless connection to the songs stored on your compatible music player. And if you're not the only driver, this Kenwood enables you to pair two phones and switch between them. An indicator on the receiver's display lets you know which phone is connected.
Video did not kill the radio star
Sure, you can pop in a CD, DVD, or USB drive for your music fix, but this receiver's strength lies within its radio options. Using its built-in HD Radio tuner, you can enjoy CD-quality sound from participating stations in your area. You can also take it a step further by adding an optional SiriusXM tuner for access to some truly sublime satellite radio stations that won't fade away when you head out of town. If your smartphone's along for the ride, you can use this Kenwood's controls to create, listen, and control your own stations through Pandora® Internet radio. If you like finding your own musical niche, you can pull up your favorite Internet radio app on your phone and stream it wirelessly using Bluetooth.
And video's still alive, too
You can watch your favorite DVDs on the built-in screen whenever you're parked, or send movies to a rear-seat screen when you're on the move. This Kenwood includes a rear A/V input, so you can add a portable video player or video game console as well. The front and rear camera inputs let you connect dash and backup cameras. The Kenwood's screen will show the backup camera feed when your vehicle is in reverse, as well as graphic parking lines — a great feature when backing up a larger vehicle into a tight parking spot.
You can use the robust 13-band equalizer to adjust the tone for your separate audio sources. The digital time alignment enables you to zero in your perfect sound, no matter which seat you're in. The three pairs of RCA preamp outputs will send out a hot 4-volt signal when it's time to add amps to your system.
iDatalink Maestro lets you keep your factory extras
The DDX573BH offers compatibility you won't find in many other aftermarket radios, thanks to the iDatalink Maestro module (not included).
Ford SYNC systems: you'll be able to retain voice-controlled features, steering wheel audio controls, and factory audio functions;
GM vehicles: you'll keep your steering wheel audio controls, your factory amp, safety warning chimes, and OnStar;
Chrysler: you'll keep all your Uconnect functionality;
Toyota: you'll keep your factory amplifer, auxiliary and USB inputs, rear-view camera, and steering wheel audio controls
Volkswagen: you'll retain the factory Bluetooth, the factory digital amplifier and fader, plus VW's media device interface.
The iDatalink adapter also lets you tap into your vehicle's diagnostic port, so you can check out expanded functionality including gauges, climate controls, a distance sensor, and tire pressure monitor on the Kenwood's screen.
Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities.
