Ready for your Android phone
If you store your music on an Android device, the Kenwood KMM-BT222U is the receiver you’ve been looking for. Android Open Accessory protocol (AOA) lets you connect your phone either to the front USB port or through Bluetooth, then control all the music you’ve stored there. You’ll be able to run the apps you like and take advantage of a variety of search and playback features.
Also cool for Apple users
Got an iPod or iPhone? You can plug your player into the Kenwood KMM-BT322U’s front-panel USB input to access your playlists. Dedicated “search” and “return” buttons, plus handy tools like AppMode, Alphabet, Percentage Skip, and Related Search, help you find your music fast. With a compatible iPhone, you can also enjoy the convenience of full Siri Eyes Free control.
Enjoy Spotify and Pandora
You don’t have to rely on your phone for entertainment, however. If you’re into Internet Radio, you can enjoy your favorite playlists and explore new music on Spotify and Pandora. You can also liven up your travels by plugging a thumb drive into the USB input or jacking another device into the aux input. The KMM-BT222U can play MP3, WMA, AAC, WAV, and even lossless FLAC music files, so you can access your entire music library.
Get the sound you’re looking for
Kenwood sound reconstruction restores the depth that’s often missing from compressed music files, and digital time alignment ensures that all that sound reaches your ears at the same time. A 13-band EQ lets you get the sound you like, and with the Remote app, you can tune it from your phone.
Want to keep your car’s steering wheel audio controls?
