About the Kenwood DPX505BT

Easy access to your media

Kenwood's DPX505BT CD receiver combines the user-friendliness of a big-buttoned car stereo with the innovation of Amazon Alexa voice control. The big 3-line display with customizable colors shows you all your music information, while the stereo's versatile Bluetooth options gets your smartphone involved in the action wirelessly. Radio lovers, you'll dig streaming Internet radio apps and the option for satellite radio to entertain for the longest hauls. And if you're bringing your own tunes, this Kenwood offers a front aux input, a USB port for your iPhone® and high-res music, and CD playback.

Alexa voice control

Load the Alexa app onto your phone and pair your phone to this Kenwood receiver, press the dedicated "Alexa" button on the faceplate, and you can access music, audiobooks, news, weather, traffic, and smart home controls using your voice.

Music, music, music

You can play and charge your iPhone® or check out a USB drive filled with high-res FLAC files through this receiver's front USB port. Android™ users, you can control and play music using Bluetooth. Kenwood rounds out the connectivity with a front aux input for a portable music player. The DPX505BT adds a radio option with controls for SiriusXM (satellite radio tuner and subscription also required), so you can listen to your favorite stations without them fading away as you head out of town. And don't worry, this Kenwood's sensitive radio tuner will pick up local AM and FM analog stations like a champ, too.

Bluetooth®, of course

Bluetooth is the norm for wireless phone functionality these days. The DPX505BT lets you pair two Bluetooth-equipped phones and quickly switch between them for hands-free calling. You can wirelessly stream and control the playback functions of just about any Internet radio service, including Spotify, TIDAL, and Qobuz. You can also stream stored music, audiobooks, and podcasts from the phone that's active. Kenwood also added a little fun to audio streaming with their Music Mix feature — pair five phones so everybody can pick their tunes for the ultimate road trip playlist. Bluetooth also lets you control this stereo directly from your iPhone® or Android™ phone by downloading Kenwood's free Remote app.

Tweak the look and sound

You can use this Kenwood's dynamic 13-band graphic equalizer and digital time alignment to make sure it always feels like the band's right in front of you. The DPX505BT also provides three pairs of RCA preamp outputs, enabling you to add additional amps to boost the power for future speakers. Looking to add a personal look or blend in with your vehicle's interior lighting? The 3-zone variable color illumination lets you dial in just the right look for your dash.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.
