Kenwood KMM-BT315U digital media receiver

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.

This car stereo initially had a problem with Bluetooth, an issue that's mentioned in some reviews. Kenwood has solved this problem with a software update on all units in our warehouse, effective 3/09/2016.

Kenwood KMM-BT315U Reviews

Reviewer: Anonymous person from Orangeville, PA  
This is a good radio for the price. Bluetooth connection is a bit slow to start

Easy install! Perfect fit! March-06-17
Reviewer: Megan from Lewisville, Texas  
It fits perfectly in my 1991 Mazda Miata. The wiring harness and my stock harness were super easy to figure out which wires went together. The instruction manual was very thorough and easy to understand. I already had the double din bracket in my car so all I had to do was screw the new radio in and plug it all in. I did have to screw in the ground wire to a different spot than it was at on my old radio, but it wasn't a problem at all.

Overall, I'm so pleased with this radio and super easy to install and figure out! Highly recommend.

Reviewer: Brian J from Adel, ga  
This receiver rocks. Fully customizable display, Bluetooth has excellent range, sound eq has all the options and of course kenwood legendary reliability. Can't go wrong with this. On a side note, I've bought relievers from other online stores, but Crutchfield outshines them all. Won't buy audio anywhere else.

Reviewer: Anonymous person from Binghamton, NY  
I'm pleased with this unit, but not terribly happy that one week after I received it, it's been discontinued.  I wish my Crutchfield advisor had mentioned to me that this was happening as I would have spent a little more to get the newer model.

Solid replacement head February-24-17
Reviewer: Bill from Veazie, ME  
All-around decent head unit. I have had good luck with Kenwood in previous cars and used this to replace the Toyota Prius factory radio. I enjoy the Blutooth capabilities as well as the USB function.
I do wish the EQ section was a bit more intuitive, but I almost have it where I want it.
Overall, I am quite happy with this purchase.
