The Kenwood eXcelon KDC-X794 is a mid-range, single-DIN car audio receiver. Users can control a USB-connected iPod or iPhone via the receiver interface, which represents an upgrade over that of the entry-level KDC-X494, displaying five lines of text rather than two. The KDC-X794 also features AM/FM radio, a CD player and an AUX input. Other upgrades over the entry-level model include AAC support and DSP equalizer options. Bluetooth, HD radio, and satellite radio support all require separately purchased accessories. The receiver outputs up to 50 W per channel and features three 4V preamp outputs. The higher-end KDC-X994 adds built-in Bluetooth support.
