Several “Wow!” factors
What happens when you combine superior audiophile sound capabilities with big screen usability? Enter the Kenwood Excelon Reference DMX1057XR digital multimedia receiver. “Floating” receivers appear in many modern factory audio systems, but Kenwood has upped the ante with its massive 10.1″ touchscreen display. You’ll easily see all the info and get the latest smartphone interfaces such as Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto®. You can also customize the display to show travel aids you need most, such as the weather, navigation, tone controls, a compass, camera displays, and of course, a clock. It even has a multi-function volume knob for quick adjustments. Kenwood also backs up this Excelon Reference receiver with a 2-year warranty.
Handy mounting features
This receiver’s chassis fits in most double-DIN dash openings, and since there’s no disc player, the mounting depth shouldn’t be a major issue for most vehicles. Once you’ve mounted the chassis in your dash opening, you can adjust its vertical mounting height, as well as choose from two depth positions, to free up other vehicle controls and vents in your ride. Once the screen is fixed into the chassis, you can also manually tilt the display forward and back to compensate for angled dashes and glare.
Check your dash!
Important Note — The screen measures 10.313″ x 7.125″. Before ordering, check for possible interference with your dash, your shifter, and all other controls.
Set the display your way
This receiver’s big screen shows off crisp, detailed video from both your digital video media and up to four cameras you can connect. You can also adjust its layout so it looks (and works) the way you like. Movable widgets let you bring the important stuff to the forefront, such as music sources, navigation, and weather. You can even tweak your music quickly within a widget. Kenwood’s free Portal app lets you transfer photos from your smartphone for slide shows and personal backgrounds for your in-dash media hub.
Getting your phone involved
Using this Kenwood’s wireless connection, your smartphone links right up and you’re ready to roll with all the voice-control wonderfulness that Android Auto and Apple CarPlay bring to driving.
And when your phone needs some juice, plug it in, and you’ll still get access to all your navigation, phone calls, weather, text messages, and music through simple controls and voice commands you’re familiar with — while your battery charges. If you prefer to stay wireless and you have a compatible phone, you can also charge up with a wireless Qi charger.
A great hub for media
Into your high-res music library? The DMX1057XR will play high-res music files stored on a USB drive, including WAV, FLAC, and DSD files. Using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto will open up even more Internet-based music, talk radio, and podcast apps for you, as well. If you’re looking for radio stations that won’t fade away or use cell data, add a SiriusXM tuner to this Kenwood to enjoy satellite radio’s deep programming from coast to coast. You can stay in tune locally as well and enjoy crystal-clear audio from participating stations with this Kenwood’s built-in HD Radio® tuner. If you’re into simply streaming music from your phone, this receiver’s LDAC feature means you can stream high-res sound via Bluetooth with select Android phones.
Built for sound quality and system expansion
For those who like total control over their sound, the big display and widgets help there, too. Kenwood included a 13-band parametric equalizer, digital time alignment, and bass/subwoofer controls that can be part of your home screen for quick adjustments on the fly. If you’re planning on adding multiple amplifiers to the system, the DMX1057XR also includes three pairs of 5-volt RCA preamp outputs that provide an ultra-clean signal, as well as a 3-way crossover network you can run directly from the massive touchscreen display. And because this receiver is part of Kenwood’s Excelon Reference line, it’s also constructed with tuned audiophile-grade components to get the best sound possible from your system.
iDatalink Maestro lets you keep your factory extras
The DMX1057XR offers compatibility in a growing number of aftermarket radios, thanks to iDatalink’s Maestro modules (not included). In a wide selection of vehicles, the Maestro ADS-MRR module let you keep factory features that you’d otherwise lose when you install a new radio. You’ll also be able to check out engine performance data and other vehicle info on the Kenwood’s screen, even radar info from a compatible detector. iDatalink also now offers the Maestro ADS-MRR2 module, which adds features like programmable outputs for add-on accessory items, such as lighting and winch accessories, as well as built-in Bluetooth for future wireless software updates for the module. Once you’ve identified your vehicle, you’ll see the compatible iDatalink ADS-MRR modules offered on the way to the Shopping Cart.
