Product Description

The flagship model in the Kenwood Excelon CD receiver lineup is the KDC-X997.  It features built-in HD Radio and Bluetooth.  Pandora Internet Radio, iHeart Radio and AhaTM for iPhone and Android smartphones is supported, and the KDC-X997 also offers unique audio features such as digital time alignment, a 13-band equalizer and three sets of 4.0 volt preamp outputs with on-board digital high-pass and low-pass filtering. The three-line, full-dot variable color illumination LCD display offers exceptional visibility and fast scrolling of music files, multiple telephone numbers and names. The flexible, multi-lingual display of the KDC-X997 gives the user the ability to easily operate external media devices such as iPod, iPod-Touch, iPhone, Android smartphone and USB mass storage as well as content from HD Radio, Pandora Internet radio, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, iHeart Radio and AhaTM (optional smartphone apps or accessories may be required, SiriusXM subscription required).  Front and rear, dual USB ports provide additional connectivity to external devices as well as expanded installation options for these devices. A protective CD Door/Cover keeps airborne particles from interfering with the internal mechanism and gives the KDC-X997 a sleek, finished look in the dashboard.  

Customer Reviews

The whole system sounds so clear.

Works great with Pandora on android platform, not as much control or appeal with iPhone...

The good

This HU puts out the cleanest sound of any CD receiver I have ever heard. The details and nuances of the sound are impeccable for car audio and there is a huge array of fine tuning available. If great sound is your number 1 concern then this deck delivers.
The SeriusXM V200 adapter(not included) is hidden away behind the deck and integrates flawlessly with the HU controls for snappy tuning and super quick reception.

The bad
The display is useless in bright light and practically impossible to see.
AM radio reception is below average and much worse than my Nissan OEM HU
Some BT functions are incompatible with certain Windows phones like my Nokia 710 for example.

Summary
I looked for a high end double DIN with the same features and quality sound but could not find anything that came close to the KDC-X997 at or near the price of this HU. To get a double DIN that would still be a close 2nd you would need to pay more than triple, so I bought a double DIN to single DIN adapter for 10 bucks.

Pros: CDs sound awesome if you turn off DSP, iPod works, iPhone works
Cons: Worse than 1960's functionality for presets, won't read iTunes-ripped tracks from USB flash drive, HD radio is sketchy, user manual is worse than awful

Station presets:

1) There are no preset buttons. To select a preset, press the button next to the volume knob, then use the volume knob to scroll through your presets, then press the volume knob when you see the one you're looking for. Perfectly easy and safe to do on the road, right? Better look for "seek mode" in the settings menu to get your seek buttons to skip through your presets, rather than through frequencies, because that's the only practical way to change radio stations. But to set a preset for a new station, you'll have to change seek mode back so you can even find the station. Those seek modes are called Auto1 and Auto2. Intuitive, right? Oh, and if you remember stations by their frequency, those don't show in the preset list. Better re-learn them by call letters.

2) There is no way to delete presets. If you accidentally end up with 18 useless presets as you try to figure out how to set them, or if you accidentally create them while you are driving, you are stuck with them. Now when you cycle through them using the seek buttons (getting that to work is in a settings menu) you'll have 18 to cycle through to get back to the first one. Neat, huh? You can overwite them, but if there are fewer stations you'd like to set than the 18 useless ones you created, you're stuck with them. You can reset your unit using the recessed button under the faceplate and all that will do is make you set everything else up again. Your useless presets will still be there.

This reciever is great it has a front USB and the rear USB with about 24" of cable. It was long enough to make it to my glove box where I keep my old Ipod which has tons of music on it. I like the clarity of the HD radio and I like how the door covers where the disc goes in making it very clean looking. It has a very good built in crossover allowing the front and rear chanels to be adjusted sepratly and the sub output has its ovn crossover also. I connected this to a Kenwood XR900-5 which is driving JBL GT6-69 and infinity 2 way 5 1/4" speakers I have JL TR050-CT tweeters on the A pillars not that I needed them the JBL's have plenty of tweeter. I am also driving 2-10" MTX subs in a thunderform under my back seat. The whole system sounds so clear. I never thought I would have such a clear system. The KDCX997 has adjustable colors and differant ways for it to display the information. The bluetooth has an external mic that comes with it. I ran it up the Apillar and mounted it at the top of the apillar molding next to the roof. I have used it many times and people have told me it sounds really good but it does have adjustments for mic gain and echo control. I would recoment this unit to anyone who wants a spretty serious reciever. To make the most of it I think you need to have an amp. Alpine is selling an extremely small four chanel amp now that you can mount even under the dash. To get clarity out of speakers you need enough power that the amp or reciever doesnt need to be at its limit to get the volume you are looking for. Best luck. Oh by the way this amp rocks. I could blow these speakers if I wanted to but I just set the gain so as not to damage the speakers. I think it will live for many years since its not working very hard.

I really like the unit --- But the display is pretty dim in the daylight. I had difficulty uploading the telephone contact from my phone - pretty frustrating and the manual is next to useless. The radio kept polling my phone for the contacts but would not recognize them. I downloaded the manual which was hard to get and open and the directions in the manual were wrong.
I found that after the phone was paired go to the contacts list (on the Cell) > left lower button>Import/Export>Share namecard via>Check Select all>Done>Bluetooth>Select Radio> accept connection. Done!
