Kenwood DMX8520DABS; fully loaded
Experience the dazzling impact of Kenwood’s DMX8520DABS multimedia receiver with its 7″ touchscreen display. Let’s talk about the convenience factor: Kenwood builds wired and wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ into this powerhouse of a receiver, which means you’ll get all the best smartphone integration features while your phone stays in your pocket or bag.
If you need a charge, connect your phone via USB and functionality remains the same.
When it comes to music, the DMX8520DABS gives you lots of great options, including HD Radio and high-res audio playback, along with satellite radio with an optional tuner and subscription. Bluetooth makes it happen for hands-free calling and music streaming.
These days, vehicle cameras are a must for safer driving, and Kenwood gives you four video inputs for front-view, side-view, rear-view, and backup cameras. Kenwood also provides a proprietary input for the DRV-N520 dash cam.
The Kenwood DMX8520DABS plays video content in bright, clear detail when you’re parked. When you’re on the road, you can entertain your passengers by sending a movie from the receiver to a rear-seat screen, while you enjoy your music upfront.
