Long Beach, CA (11.23.11) – Kenwood USA Corporation announces the early delivery of three entry-level CD receivers that are part of Kenwood’s 2012 product lineup.
The KDC-252U ($120.00 suggested retail price) represents Kenwood’s entry level price point for in-dash control of iPhone, iPod and mass storage device. The addition of Pandora Internet radio link allows the KDC-252U to choose Internet radio channels, input thumbs up/down and view program data streaming from a Pandora-enabled iPhone (using the white cable that originally came with the iPhone or using the optional automotive-grade KCA-iP102 cable, not included). The Kenwood Music Control™ app, available in January 2012 for free on the Android Marketplace, allows for the KDC-252U to control and playback music files stored on Android-platform smartphones. One set of preamp outputs provides system building capabilities, including the addition of a subwoofer system which is made possible by an optional subwoofer signal output and a built-in low frequency crossover. A full function remote control is included.
The KDC-202U ($110.00 suggested retail price) will appeal to the consumer that prefers the playback of music files through a low-cost mass-storage device instead of higher-cost iPod/iPhone/iTouch devices. The KDC-202U shares all of the primary features of the KDC-252U minus the iPod/iPhone/iTouch control and built-in Pandora Internet radio link. Kenwood’s value leader is the KDC-152 ($100.00 suggested retail price), offering a front-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input, one set of preamp outputs and remote control.
The KDC-252U, KDC-202U and KDC-152 are covered by a limited one-year manufacturer’s warranty and are available through authorized Kenwood retailers.
