Product Overview↑ Back to Top

HD Radio, Bluetooth and Pandora Internet radio link are all built-in to the Kenwood KDC-X996. It also offers unique audio features such as digital time alignment, a 13-band equalizer and three sets of 4.0 volt preamp outputs with on-board digital high-pass and low-pass filtering. The upgraded audio and streaming text features of HD Radio take full advantage of the audio performance and large display of the KDC-X996. Pandora Internet radio can be controlled and viewed via the front panel of the Kenwood receiver using either an iPhone, Android or Blackberry smartphone. The five-line, variable color LCD display offers exceptional visibility and fast scrolling of music files, Pandora Internet radio stations, and multiple telephone numbers and names. Selectable text sizing allows the option to choose three-lines of larger text or a higher quantity of text displayed over five-lines depending on user preference. The flexible, multi-lingual display of the KDC-X996 gives the user the ability to easily operate external media devices such as USB, iPod, iTouch, iPhone, Android smartphone and content from HD Radio or Pandora Internet radio (optional smartphone accessories may be required). The KDC-X996 can also integrate with existing steering wheel controls through a special wired interface (optional adapter might be required), maintaining driver safety and convenience. Also contributing to driver safety is an SMS auto-reply feature which, when enabled, will transmit a pre-written message automatically upon receipt of a text message.
