Real DAB Radio CD

Offer Ends Weds!!!!

Thanks to DarlkLord there is a further 10% off using HALNEW10


Kenwood’s new in-car CD/iPod Control system now includes state-of-the-art DAB/DAB+. Using the latest digital chip set means for the first time listening to digital radio on the move is free of annoying breaks and distortion. Clever technology will even switch from DAB to FM (and back again) if there is a local signal problem. The system includes a discrete window film aerial avoiding the need to drill a hole in the vehicles body as previously required with less sensitive receivers.

If your mobile phone is of the AndroidTM persuasion you can also download our Free AndroidTM Kenwood Music Control App to gain full control of your phones music storage and display of album, artist data etc.

Want to add Bluetooth hands-free calling with music streaming from your phone? Just add the KCA-BT300 Bluetooth interface.

Looks a good deal, have just reserved at my local store for collection tomorrow, as long as I can get the car off the drive for snow!!
Thats a bit chav innit.
I have the original Sony DAB car stereo and it certainly doesn't cut out every minute, and I am not even using a dedicated dab aerial, I bought a fm aerial to fan and dab amplified splitter adaptor
Fan = fm

I would agree with some early dab car audio. drove a focus hire car for 6 weeks up and down Britain last year and the radio never cut out once. this also gets good reviews. so hot gonna have to buy one.
Civic EG6

Thats a bit chav innit.



Not as chav as the word 'innit'
I have a Sony that tunes into the best signal FM or DAB it is so annoying as the delay means you miss bits or hear stuff twice ,I hope you can switch that bit off on this one .the stick on aerials are rubbish also ,good price why the huge drop though? makes me suspicious
Will try one in the tractor,and return if no good

loved the video,DownHill911,not sure where the DAB aerial would go , coincidentally I was doughnutting my quad bike today on the snow,might try the combine tomorrow
At least the aerial is included on this model unlike the dab4551-u

Not sure what the difference is between the two models.

Discontinued, RRP is normally £190, sells for about £120
Almost ordered, but the bluetooth adapter is nearly hundred quid extra
Banned
The DAB inline aerial adapter I got from DABonwheels works very good.
Easy to fit and so far, the only dropout I have on DAB is ocasionally, when I reverse onto my drive.
And tbh, I don't tend to listen to my radio much on my drive. oO

Might even buy this radio and give my JVC back to argos.

Crap display on this one, the display looks the same as the Kenwood I had in 1998.
