Excelon quality with smartphone integration
At Kenwood, Excelon means quality, and they back the series with a 2-year warranty. This Excelon DMX906S multimedia receiver with its customizable, widget-based 6.95" touchscreen display delivers on sound quality to give you an awesome command center for an audiophile system. And then there's smartphone integration... With wireless Apple CarPlay® and wireless Android Auto™ built in, you'll gain access to all your most-used phone features while your phone stays in your pocket or bag. If you need a charge, connect your phone via USB and functionality remains the same.
When it comes to music, Kenwood gives you lots of great options, including HD Radio®, high-res audio playback, and cool music service options. Bluetooth makes it happen for hands-free calling and music streaming.
Wireless smartphone integration and more
- With your iPhone® or Android™ smartphone connected to the Excelon DMX906S via USB, you'll gain a variety of apps that are simple to switch between, whether you're using this radio's touchscreen or voice control. This receiver also offers:
- Wireless Android Auto: Android Auto integrates the Android platform into your driving experience in a non-distracting way. You'll have voice control access to Google Maps, weather, music, your phone, text messages, plus easy access to many of your favorite apps.
- Wireless Apple CarPlay: CarPlay integrates your iPhone® into the driving experience, putting iPhone content at the driver's voice command with minimal distraction. That means easy access to your music library, your phone, messages, navigation, and many third-party streaming music apps, too.
- Phone swapping: If your family includes both iPhone and Android users, you simply plug in the phone you want to use without having to choose a particular input or adjust menu settings for control.
- Additionally, Kenwood's built-in Wi-Fi allows you to wirelessly mirror select Android devices on your touchscreen while your parking brake is engaged, so you can view an app not supported by Android Auto.
Bluetooth for all
The DMX906S lets you pair two Bluetooth-equipped phones and quickly switch between them for hands-free calling — an excellent road trip convenience. And when you're streaming music, Kenwood's Music Mix lets you pair five phones so everybody can pick their tunes for an on-the-fly listening session.
Add a backup cam and two more
These days, vehicle cameras are a must for safer driving, and Kenwood gives you three video inputs for front-, side-, and rear-view cameras. Kenwood also provides a proprietary input for the DRV-N520 dash cam. You can use electronic angle adjustment of your display to tailor the screen's contrast for the best viewing in your vehicle's dash location. This Kenwood plays video content in bright, clear detail when you're parked. When you're on the road, you can entertain your passengers by sending a movie from the receiver to a rear-seat screen, while you enjoy your music up front.
HD Radio, two USB inputs, and more
Kenwood includes a built-in HD Radio tuner so you can enjoy the very best audio quality in radio, plus extra programming choices on second and third channels when available. Two rear USB inputs open up your source options too, and there's great news for audiophiles — this receiver supports high-res file playback of music stored on a USB drive. Do you use Pandora™ and Spotify™ all the time on your smartphone? This receiver makes it easy to access your playlists. And if you're looking for radio stations that won't fade away, add a SiriusXM tuner (not included) to this Kenwood to enjoy satellite radio's extensive programming wherever you may roam.
Shape your sound from your dash
The DMX906S also includes three pairs of 5-volt RCA preamp outputs that provide an ultra-clean signal when it's time to add amplifiers to your system. And if you're building a 3-way system, this receiver gives you that next-level crossover capability.
If you're a big-time system-builder, you'll dig Kenwood's suite of sound-crafting tools include a 13-band equalizer, deep crossover settings, and built-in digital time alignment. Bring back the depth and detail for all your digital music sources with this receiver's processing power. If your car speakers are located down low in the doors, this receiver offers Stage EQ, which adjusts your music's frequencies to virtually "raise" your speakers for better, more natural imaging.
Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities.
You'll need a wired connection to your parking brake to access settings and other features on this receiver. Your parking brake must be connected and set in order to view video on its screen.
