Kenwood KDC-168U CD Receiver with Front USB and AUX inputs
The Kenwood KDC-168U CD receiver includes easily accessible front panel controls to let you control your music, tweak your sounds, pick your favorite radio stations, and crank the volume when the mood strikes you. As far as music choices, you can integrate your iPhone using the Kenwood’s front-panel USB port.
Front USB and AUX Input
Easy front panel connection for your compatible USB-enabled devices. These include iPhone, iPod devices as well as compatible Mass Storage Class devices like smartphones, USB thumb drives and portable hard drives. This USB input will allow you to charge and control the music playback on your connected device.
In addition to connecting your smartphone or a flash drive to the USB port, the Kenwood KDC-168U also lets you go old school by playing your CDs or tuning into your favorite AM or FM stations. You can also plug a high-res portable audio player into the front auxiliary input, enabling you to enjoy your entire music library for those long road trips.
This Kenwood’s built-in amplifier offers impressive power for a big bump in performance over a stock radio. The KDC-168U also gives you a 3-band EQ and a bass boost, along with a sound reconstruction feature that improves the sound of your compressed music. When you connect a powered sub to the Kenwood’s set of preamp outputs, you can turn it up and down with the receiver’s sub level control, a great feature if you listen to a wide variety of music.

Simply install the Kenwood Music Play application onto your Android smartphone, connect it to your KENWOOD receiver via USB, and control your music directly from the car audio receiver.
The inherent frequencies of road noise masks a wide range of the audio signal found in music, and this is the reason KENWOOD engineers developed Drive EQ. Drive EQ boosts specific frequencies in the audio signal to overcome the negative impact of road noise.
