No discs required
Kenwood designed their KMM-BT315U digital media receiver to play the music you've stored on your smartphone, thumb drive, or other portable players, so you can enjoy your entire collection when you're on the road. Without the need for a bulky CD player, this compact receiver is ideal for boats, ATVs, golf carts, and other vehicles where no radio dared to go before. Built-in aptX Bluetooth® connectivity gives you outstanding sound reproduction and crystal-clear hands free calls.
Who needs discs when you have all this?
Ideal for Apple® or Android™
If you store your music on an Android device, the KMM-BT315U 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.
Got an iPod® or iPhone®? You can plug your player into the KMM-BT315U'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.
Other sound sources
You don't have to rely on your phone for entertainment, however. You can liven up your travels by plugging in a thumb drive or jacking another device into the front-panel aux input. The KMM-BT315U can play MP3, WMA, AAC, WAV, and even lossless FLAC music files, so you'll be able to enjoy your entire music library. The variable-colour 1.5-line LCD display makes it easy to see song titles and channel information with just a glance.
The centre of your new system
In addition to being the perfect host for all your digital devices, the KMM-BT315U gives you lots of options for expanding. You can add a satellite radio tuner (subscription also required) to enjoy SiriusXM's remarkably varied range of music, entertainment, news, and sports programming, wherever your travels take you. If you're planning to build a really rockin' system, this high-performance receiver offers three sets of preamp outputs, so you'll be in good shape when you add amplifiers and subwoofers.
Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio 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.
Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.
iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.
