Simple Bluetooth® solution

Looking for an easy-to-use receiver with Bluetooth? Kenwood designed the DPX501BT CD receiver with the driver in mind. Big buttons and an oversized knob give you easy access to built-in Bluetooth for hands-free calling and music streaming, as well as all receiver functions. You can use your Android™ or iPhone® for Internet radio music, and you'll find controls for an optional SiriusXM tuner. You can connect other devices filled with your favorite tunes to the front USB port and aux input.

Smartphones welcome here

The DPX501BT receiver offers direct control over a connected iPod or iPhone. You can also play, control, and charge select Android phones that are plugged into the front-panel USB port using the receiver's built-in AOA (Android Open Accessory 2.0). You can enjoy your favorite Pandora® and iHeartRadio® Internet Radio stations from your iPhone or Android. In addition to streaming audio with Bluetooth, you can pair your phone with the Kenwood for hands-free calling. To get Bluetooth running quickly, simply plug your Android or iPhone into the USB port and the receiver will pair automatically. The DPX501BT includes an external microphone, so callers can hear you loud and clear. iPhone users, you'll get voice control when pairing an iPhone that offers Siri.

Play your favorite music

You can also satisfy your music fix using the receiver's sensitive AM/FM tuner, CD player, and front aux input. And if you have MP3, WMA, AAC, or WAV music files on a thumb drive, the USB port can handle those too. If you're tired of the static from fading radio stations, you should check out the incredibly deep programming offered by satellite radio by adding a SiriusXM tuner to this Kenwood. Nothing makes a trip go faster than finding a great SiriusXM station, then listening to it for the duration.

Even more features

Once you've got your music selected, you can use the DPX501BT's 3-band equalizer and EQ presets to get that sweet sound you want. You can also use the three sets of preamp outputs to expand your system with additional amps or a powered subwoofer. The taller chassis enables a direct fit in most vehicles with 4" dash openings, and its variable color display lets you pick the look you want in your dash.

Want to keep your steering wheel controls?

In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls.You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.
