Enjoy the best-sounding radio
HD Radio™ broadcasts offer FM reception that approaches CD quality, and they're available almost everywhere across the country, free of charge to listeners with the right gear. Kenwood built an HD Radio tuner into their KDC-HD552U CD receiver, so you can join in this radio revolution.

Enjoy your personal music collections
You can plug your iPod® or iPhone® into the front-panel USB input and enjoy easy navigation of your music library. And if you like to listen to Pandora® Internet radio with your iPhone, you'll appreciate the built-in Pandora® controls. They make it easy to browse stations, plus rate and bookmark songs from the receiver's controls. And you Android fans can take advantage of the Music Link app, which provides a variety of search and playback features when your phone is plugged into the USB input.

When you want to spin a disc, slip in a CD and enjoy this receiver's 24-bit digital-to-analog converter. It converts the raw data on your disc, including MP3 and WMA files, with greater accuracy so you hear more detailed, lifelike sound. And the convenient front-panel auxiliary input lets you plug in a Dock & Play satellite radio tuner or other devices.

Sound-shaping tools
The feeble bass and treble controls of a factory radio can't compare with this receiver's 3-band EQ, high- and low-pass filters, and selectable bass boost, along with settings that let you customize the output to fit your car's speaker setup.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat deal!

Pros: easy install with a corresponding kit for your car, easy to set up and program radio and HD Radio presets, has front USB for apple/android/thumbdrives/pandora as well as analog aux jack.

I really like that the pre-amp outputs on the back are not dongles/extra wire to get in the way in the back, they are all mounted to the chassis!

Cons: none, this radio does all I expected it to and more!

Other Thoughts: It would be really great if you could get this receiver with Bluetooth for a similar price range but I will keep dreaming

5 out of 5 eggsgreat HD radio!

Pros: excellent and very fast HD signal acquisition, lots of cool features if you stream from a smart phone via usb. I also like that the RCA jacks are not dongles, but instead mounted to the back of the reciever, so if you don't use them the wiring is left nice and tidy.

I have had a lot of good experiences with Kenwood decks recently and would definitely recommend this product.

Cons: not super user friendly, I installed this in a community van and every driver will have to figure out how to use it.

Other Thoughts: I really wish you could get all these features AND bluetooth for this price range...
