Kenwood's KDC-MP145 is a quick way to add WMA/MP3 playback to your vehicle, along with a front input for your portable music player. This CD receiver keeps it simple, delivering playback of your digital files from a data disc, AM/FM radio, a preamp output for expansion, and quality Kenwood sound on a budget.
Easy-to-read, one-line, 11-digit flourescent display.
Front-panel aux input for connecting your portable music player.
Like many modern car stereos, the faceplate of this model can be removed and taken with you, to help deter theft. The control panel is equipped with an easy-to-read, one-line, 11-digit flourescent display for easy control and navigation.
CD and WMA/MP3 Playback
Enjoy your favorite CDs and CD-Rs, or burn a disc of WMA or MP3 files and enjoy hours of music on a single disc, along with ID-3 tag display for artist and title info.
When you feel like letting someone else control the programming, switch to the radio. Store your favorite stations as presets for instant access--mixed preset tuning allows both FM and AM stations to be preset on the same preset band.
Front Auxiliary Input
Listen to external audio devices like MP3 players using the front auxiliary input, which is illuminated so it's easy to find in the dark.
Room To Grow
The KDC-MP142 features one 2V preamp output for system expansion. It includes a rear/subwoofer switch with a subwoofer level and adjustable low pass filter, so you can send just what you need for your system.
System Q Sound Control
Five factory pre-set equalization curves (Rock, Top40, Pops, Jazz and Easy, plus a flat setting) and three speaker matching curves (OEM, 6x9, 5/4 plus a flat setting) can be combined for extreme sound-shaping flexibility. The preset curves include midrange contouring, giving music more clarity and presence. The preset curves can also be combined with the unit's bass, midrange and treble controls allowing users to personalize the sound to their particular taste.
Handy for listening at lower volume levels (or for those who just like a lot of low-end).
