      Comments about Kenwood eXcelon Single DIN In-Dash Bluetooth Car Stereo Receiver:

      This is a great unit. I received it quickly from ABT. I've used Kenwood eXcelon in the past. I'm pleased to know they haven't changed their great formula for building a great solution for my car audio needs. I didn't connect an external amp but it has all the connections I would need. I appreciate the dual USB connections. The rear allows me to have something plugged in that's "invisible" to the user or at least out of the way. I like that the CD slot is hidden. The LCD has options to switch between 3 line and 2 line. I like the customization. I installed it myself and was straightfoward to do. I connected a SiriusXM receiver. The sound quality is great with factory speakers. All around, I'm happy with my purchase.
