I bought this unit to replace the factory stereo in my 2001 Nissan Pathfinder. I didn't have a lot of money to spend and this unit offered a lot of features for the price. I hooked it up to some JBL GTO speakers I had. I have another car I use for a daily driver that has an expensive and very complex system. When I fired up the Kenwood with the JBLs I was amazed at how well everything sounded with just the head unit and no amp. Don't let the price fool you. It offers some great features and has a pretty extensive menu of settings. I really like having the front and rear USB ports. You can even add satellite radio to it. I have a 64GB thumb drive with nearly 4000 songs loaded on it connected to the rear USB port. Paired to JBLs the sound quality is very good. So far I guess my only complaint with this unit is that it doesn't have blue tooth. If you need that then you need to look at another model. I really didn't have high expectations so I was very surprised by its capabilities. I recommend this unit.

I really like the look of this head unit, it's very sleek and elegant. The flaps over the cd and usb/aux ports are a classy touch. I also like the glossy finish, I'm not having any of the glare problems that a lot of reviewers write about. That may be because I have heavily tinted windows. The sound quality is fantastic.This is the first non-Alpine/Pioneer head unit I've owned in years, and I'm not disappointed. One important thing to note when setting your amp gains, this head unit's preouts do not clip at full tilt - volume 35/35. If you set your amp gains at 28/35, which is about 80% like most people/sites recommend, will will end up with a fairly low preout voltage. To get the full 4 volts, you need to use volume 35 and sub +1. Kenwood has seriously stepped up their game lately. One reason I decided to go with Kenwood over Alpine/Pioneer/Claroin, is that I was so impressed with my girlfriend's Kenwood head unit. I got her a new KDC-108 a little over a year ago for dirt cheap, and she loves it. Looks, sound quality, durability, these are all around quality units, and they seem, to me, to be much better value than what the other guys are putting out. There are only 2 things I don't really like about it. Firstly, if you pause then go to a different song, that song automatically plays. You can't pause a song right at the beginning because the you have to hold the pause button for a couple seconds. That may sound like no big deal, but I just find it a little annoying that whenever I get in the car, the middle of a song, or at least a second or two into a song, starts playing, instead of the beginning. & there's nothing you can do about it. Secondly, useless functions like "loudness" and "supreme". I know most companies have similar functions, but Kenwood - You would be much more highly respected in the audiophile community if you'd get rid of that crap. Okay, so my two complaints were pretty weak, but that's really all I've got. I really like this head unit, and I highly recommend it. As far as I'm concerned in the heard unit market, Kenwood is one of the big boys now.
