Posted in Kenwood by Conner Flynn on April 17th, 2011

Kenwood’s new CD player has wood. It is dubbed the U-K525LT and sports a nice retro look, making it both stylish and elegant. It’s based on the existing U-K525 that was released this year. Goes nice with your wood grain Atari console.

Besides playing CDs, the U-K525LT also supports iPods, iPhones, WMA, AAC and MP3 file formats, FM radio and USB data storage compatibility. Did we mention that it also has wood? The Kenwood U-K525LT will cost you 44,800 Yen in Japan. That’s $539. Plus…wood.

Kenwood AS-iP70 Digital Photo Frame with iPhone dock

Posted in Digital Photo Frames by Conner Flynn on March 24th, 2010

The Kenwood AS-iP70 digital photo frame looks like a typical photo frame, but it has something extra. An iPod/iPhone dock. Even better, the dock can be put away when not in use. The device supports memory cards and USB flash drives too, and of course displays the pictures on it’s 7-inch WVGA (800 x 480) TFT display.

You also get an AM/FM radio with an alarm function, so it doubles as an alarm clock. The only bad part is that there’s no video playback. Look for the Kenwood AS-iP70 to be released in April, when it will cost you about 25,000 Yen (or $274).

JVC and Kenwood's MDV-313JVC and Kenwood have partnered to release their very first car navigation system, which is dubbed the MDV-313. The device features a built-in DVD player, an integrated 1Seg TV tuner, USB port and virtual 3D maps and more.

The most interesting aspect of the MDV-313 is the high speed response time that will supposedly go a long way toward improving user experience. No word on pricing or availability yet, but it will be hitting Japan first. It looks like they may have a real winner with this one.

Kenwood SP0001 transparent speakers

Kenwood SP0001 transparent speakersLooking for a pair of speakers to impress your friends with? These Kenwood SP0001 transparent speakers should do the trick. Maybe. I’m not sure. They’re cool, but something about them is very washer/dryer like. If you like transparent washers/dryers then this is gold.

They must look better than they sound however, with a disappointing 10Wx2ch, with 8Ω power, yet costing €765. It comes with a matching pair of stands with white and blue LEDs.

Kenwood Squeezophone 360° speaker delivers sound everywhere

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on April 8th, 2009

Kenwood Squeezophone 360°I know what you’re thinking. You’ve never seen such a fine specimen of speaker technology merged with Wiffle ball design. I couldn’t agree more. Kenwood’s Squeezophone 360° speaker is similar to the insanely expensive Sony Soutina speakers, pumping music in all directions with acoustic technology.

We don’t know much else because it’s still in the development stages. We feel pretty confident it won’t be cheap. Making things look like Wiffle balls is an expensive business. I applaud their creative genius and their willingness to venture into such uncharted territory.

Kenwood CR-iP500 all-in-one CD Player / iPod DockKenwood’s new all-in-one audio system, the CR-iP500 is a CD player and an iPod dock that features a strange otherworldly look. It must be aimed at those who still use CDs on a daily basis along with their iPod. It’s a CD player, FM tuner, iPod dock, and sports USB 2.0 connectivity with 2 x 5W 80mm speakers. Not much to see here.

Garmin & Kenwood in-dash electronics partnership continues

Posted in Garmin by Shane McGlaun on March 24th, 2008

Kenwood In-dash Powered by GarminIt really sucks when you get lost and it’s even worse if you happen to have a wife or significant other in the car at the time to tell you that you should have stopped for directions. The easy way to avoid this is to get a navigation unit, but for some the thought of cluttering up their car with a navigation unit is unbearable. Kenwood’s new products that feature built-in navigation in-dash may be just the ticket.

Garmin and Kenwood announced today that they were extending their relationship. Gamin will be the exclusive navigation supplier for Kenwood’s new 2008 line of in-dash automotive electronics. Garmin and Kenwood also say that they will work together on advertising for the new Kenwood products featuring Garmin navigation.

Kenwood AS-IP300 iPod dock

Kenwood AS-IP300
Kenwood’s AS-IP300 iPod dock looks like it just came from Area 51, which is cool. Unfortunately, it also looks like it could be mounted on the wall and used as a clothes hanger. You can get a black version if you really want it to look like the Stealth bomber.

No word yet on when these will be in the states. The price is about $140. Dimensions are: 380x157x221mm at 1 kg (1.2) for this iPod dock and it comes equipped with a couple 1.9W speakers. I’m a little unsure about this one. On one hand, it’s cool, on the other it looks like it might have been put here to brainwash me and then fly up in the sky to meet it’s cohorts. Is that odd?
