Kenwood KDC-258U CD MP3 WMA Car Stereo Receiver with USB & Aux-In

The Kenwood KDC-258U isn't your average $100 car stereo receiver... It builds upon the sound foundation of the KDC-158U and adds variable color illumination to match your car's interior lighting. Kenwood's KDC-258U offers playback of songs stored on USB thumb drives via the front mounted USB input, and it also interfaces with Android smartphones using the free Kenwood Music Control app and offers iPhone users the Pandora One ad-free experience when connected through the USB input.

Four channels of 22W RMS power are on tap for your speakers, and a set of 2.5V pre-outs with selectable low-pass filter for connection to a subwoofer amplifier. Wireless remote control included. Detachable face security. Supports MP3 and WMA discs.

USB Connectivity for iPhone and iPod: Features USB connectivity for audio playback from popular devices like iPhone and iPod. An easy-to-use interface makes iPod browsing a breeze when searching by playlist, artist, album, song, genres, or composer.

For added versatility, iPhone/iPod App Mode enables passengers to control their iPhone or iPod through the KDC-158U. USB connectivity also allows users to connect USB thumb drives and external hard disk drives.

Pandora Connectivity for iPhone: Install the Pandora® app on the iPhone and enjoy a personalized listening experience. A number of Pandora functions can be controlled when an iPhone is connected through USB. Functions include Thumbs up & down, Bookmark Artist, Bookmark Song, A-to-Z search, and Alphabetical channel search. Pandora allows users to maximize the internet radio experience in your car by customizing all of your favorite artists for a rich musical experience.
Pandora application requires a data connection on your iPhone with service currently only available in the U.S.

Kenwood Music Control for Android Smartphones: This Kenwood application organizes your music and provides quick and easy search capability from a compatible Kenwood USB/CD receiver such as by artist, song or genre. Additional function also lets you select music based on your mood.
This free Kenwood App can be downloaded from the Google Play store: Kenwood Music Control App for Android.

Front USB and AUX Input: Easy front panel connection for your compatible USB-enabled devices. These include iPhone and iPod devices as well as compatible Mass Storage Class devices like smartphones, USB thumb drives and portable hard drives.

FL Display: The bright 1-line display makes it easy to see the text information when navigating the menu, your iPhone/iPod, or your USB drive's music content.

Variable Color Illumination: This allows the user to match the Kenwood unit’s illumination with the vehicle dashboard lights from the wide pallet of available colors.

Stereo 2.5V Pre-out with Low-Pass Filter: A low-pass filter allows the outgoing signal to a connected amplifier to filter out midrange and high frequencies. This is useful for amplifiers powering subwoofers as it keeps mid and high frequencies from being amplified and passed through to a speaker designed to handle only low frequencies.

Remote Control and Steering Wheel Connection: This wireless remote control easily control volume levels, switch music sources or select your favorite tracks with the numeric access keys. A steering wheel control wire integrates the KDC-258U into your stock steering wheel control system (when used with additional hardware, sold separately).

Reviews

Kenwood KDC-258U CD MP3 WMA Car Stereo Receiver with USB & Aux-In
Kenwood KDC-258U CD MP3 WMA Car Stereo Receiver with USB & Aux-In is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good radio for the moneyDidn't need anything fancy for an old truck, but wanted CD, USB, and Aux-in. picked this over others for minor reasons -- the display doesn't do annoying animated things and I like being able to set the display color to green for best visibility. Controls are a bit strange (two pairs of arrow buttons -- which ones do what?) and the tiny printing on them is unreadable while driving. But all software-driven car stereos have this issue these days since there's no standardization of the controls. Beyond that, it works as advertised, with no surprises, plenty of clean volume. Since it's in a truck, I hooked the "front" outputs to marine speakers in the kick panels, and the "rear" outputs to 4" speakers in the "factory" locations in the dash. With no baffles, the little speakers essentially just cover the mid-hi range, the but the extra volume is nice and I kind of like the effect.Have not tried the CD player to see if it skips (a common problem with car CD players). USB works well once you find the trick controls for scrolling and stepping through the files (definitely non-obvious). The radio is surprisingly sensitive, even with an old, bent, loose antenna -- perhaps the best FM sensitivity of any car radio I've had.
