Gateway to all your media
Sometimes, I just have to take my hat off to Kenwood – they really keep up with the latest technologies. The Kenwood Excelon DDX594 DVD receiver, for example, gives you touchscreen control over a bevy of entertainment options for all your journeys. In addition to playing music from CDs, DVDs, and USB drives, you also get Bluetooth® with aptX for wireless convenience, a built-in HD Radio® tuner for super-clear AM/FM reception, a satellite radio option, and serious smartphone connectivity — all controlled by an easy-to-read 6.2" touchscreen display. And, Kenwood backs up this Excelon Series receiver with a 2-year warranty.
Bluetooth connectivity for two phones
In addition to streaming audio with Bluetooth, you can pair your phone with this Kenwood for hands-free calling. If your Android™ is Bluetooth aptX-compatible or your iPhone® holds AAC files, you'll enjoy clear, CD-quality music streaming. For the times when you have to share the ride, the DDX594 enables you to pair two Bluetooth-equipped phones and quickly switch between them, without having to dig into the receiver's menus to change phones. Kenwood's free remote app uses Bluetooth, so your passengers can control the stereo directly from a smartphone.
Dive into your music
When used with your smartphone, this versatile Kenwood gives you control over music from Pandora®, iHeartRadio®, and Spotify® Internet radio stations. You can also add a SiriusXM tuner to this Kenwood to enjoy satellite radio stations that will stay with you through a long trip. Using its built-in HD Radio tuner, you can enjoy vastly improved sound from participating AM and FM stations in your area. And no worries, the sensitive AM/FM tuner will catch all your local non-HD stations too. The DDX594 also plays all your CDs, DVDs, and recordable discs, and you can plug a thumb drive loaded with hours of music into the receiver's rear USB input.
Features at the touch of a finger
You can check out your favorite DVDs on the built-in screen whenever you're parked. This Kenwood includes a rear A/V input, so you can add a portable video/audio player or video game console as well. A rear video output can feed additional video screens to keep your backseat passengers amused. The DDX594 includes front and rear camera inputs, letting you connect dash and backup cameras. The Kenwood's screen will show the rear camera feed with graphic parking lines when your vehicle is in reverse — a great feature, especially for tight parking spots.
The sound's the thing
Use the 13-band equalizer and built-in digital time alignment to put yourself right in the recording studio, no matter which seat you're in. The DDX594 also provides three pairs of RCA preamp outputs that'll send a clean, high-voltage signal to any outboard amps in your system, just in case you want some more power to your system.
iDatalink Maestro lets you keep your factory extras
The DDX594 offers compatibility you won't find in many other aftermarket radios, thanks to the iDatalink Maestro module (not included). The module lets you keep factory features in your Chrysler, Ford, GM, Toyota, or VW vehicle that you'd otherwise lose when you install a new radio. You'll also be able to check out expanded functionality on the Kenwood's screen, including gauges, climate controls, a distance sensor, and tire pressure and temperature monitors. It'll even integrate your stealth K40 radar detector into the stereo's display, so you can see and hear about incoming threats (available soon). With select rear-view cameras, you'll even get parking guidelines that curve with the motion of your steering wheel.
Want to keep your steering wheel controls?
In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.
Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities.
