Built for life on the water
A marine receiver has to do more than just look good and sound great. It also has to stand up to salt, spray, sunlight, and rough weather. Kenwood designed their KMR-D358 CD receiver to withstand the rigors of boating life, with snug-fitting input covers and a conformal-coated circuit board that helps prevents moisture from seeping in and causing damage. These no-nonsense features keep the music playing, so you can relax and enjoy your time on the water.
Ready for your iPod or smartphone
The handy front-panel USB input does more than just let you plug in a thumb drive and enjoy a playlist. When you connect a compatible phone, you can enjoy your favorite music in a variety of ways.
With a connected iPhone, 3G service, and AppMode, you can tune in your favorite Pandora, iHeart Radio, Aupeo, or TuneIn Internet radio stations while you're on the water. And when you're listening to the music stored on your player, Kenwood's made finding the right tunes easy with dedicated "search" and "return" buttons, plus handy tools like "Alphabet," "% Skip," and "Related Search."
Android users can download the free Kenwood Music Control app and enjoy lots of great features. Organize playlists, sort songs according to "mood," and take advantage of quick and easy search capability on the Kenwood CD receiver. You can search by genre, song title, artist name, or record label, and all that info will be displayed on the receiver.
The 13-digit, 1-1/2 line LCD display makes it easier to see what's playing, and variable color illumination means you'll see it in your favorite hue. If you're installing the KMR-D358 in an out-of-the-way spot, a Kenwood marine remote (not included) allows you to control it from the helm.
Multiple media options
If you're a satellite radio fan, add a SiriusXM tuner (subscription required) to enjoy all your favorite music, sports, and talk, even when you're miles and miles offshore. You can also liven up your cruise by loading in a CD full of MP3 or WMA music files, plugging in a thumb drive, or by jacking another device into the front-panel aux input. You can use the 3-band equalizer to optimize audio performance, while the three sets of preamp outputs come in handy if you want to add amps and subs to your boat.
