Link your smartphone wirelessly
To make using Bluetooth® even easier, Kenwood's KDC-BT282U CD receiver uses the two biggest buttons on the stereo — one for hands-free calls and one for streaming music — to give you instant access. They also equip this affordable multi-source receiver with robust tone controls, a front USB port that's compatible with high-res music, and solid power for your system.
Music from everywhere
Old-schoolers out there, don't worry — this Kenwood still lets you listen to your CDs and AM/FM radio too. A front aux input keeps this unit versatile, letting you use just about any portable music player out there. A wired connection via USB with your iPhone® gives you control over your music from the receiver. Android™ users, you can control your music when your phone is connected using Bluetooth.
Using Kenwood's free Remote app, you can adjust this receiver's sound settings from your smartphone.
Other smartphone perks
For the times when you're sharing the ride, the KDC-BT282U enables you to pair two Bluetooth-equipped phones and quickly switch between them for hands-free calling. And when you're streaming audio, Kenwood's Music Mix feature lets you pair five phones so everybody can pick their tunes for the ultimate road trip party. You can also control this stereo directly from your iPhone or Android phone using Kenwood's free Remote app.
With this Kenwood's robust amplification, you'll enjoy better sound from your factory or aftermarket speakers. Use the 13-band equalizer and digital time alignment to tweak the tone for your car. The KDC-BT282U also provides one set of RCA preamp outputs, enabling you to connect an amp or a powered subwoofer to add even more punch. You can even adjust the crossover settings for the front, rear, and subwoofer channels independently to get that perfect sound you want.
