Android Music Playback
Kenwood introduces the new line-up of car audio receivers that support AOA2 (Android Open Accessory Protocol version 2). Simply install the “Kenwood Music Play” application onto the Android smartphone, connect it to your Kenwood receiver via USB, and control your music directly from the car audio receiver.

Drive EQ
Road noise is the enemy of all audio systems found in vehicles. The inherent frequencies of road noise masks a wide range of the audio signal found in music, and this is the reason Kenwood engineers developed Drive EQ. Drive EQ boosts specific frequencies in the audio signal to compensate the negative impact of road noise.
