    Pros: Full of features, Auto-hide Dmask, Awesome sound
    Cons: Cheap looking silver plastic, Not exactlly easy to use

  • AWESOME DECK WITH A SERIOUS FLAW

    Sep 12, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent sound, MP3 player, remote control, non-fading output, D Mask, 200 watts, SIRIUS ready
    Cons: Flawed design, need the manual to do minor adjustments (ex. radio presets)

    Summary: EXPERIENCE USING THIS PRODUCT: I had the head unit for exactly one year and a half before it just decided to break one day. Here is the story: I went to get gas for my car one day (head unit working fine). I pull up to the gas station and turn off the ... read more

  • Good Until You Add Sirius Radio

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great sound, settings, and features.
    Cons: Unreliable problems and not supported by Kenwood.

    Summary: This is a fine deck. Unfortunately it is apparently not compatible with the series 901 Sirius tuner from Kenwood. I tried two 919 HUs and two different 901 tuners and the results were identical... the face would eventually slide down and lock up, ... read more

  • Unreliable Mechanics

    Feb 27, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: 1. Many tweaking options, 2. MP3 player is quick to read tracks
    Cons: Too breakable

    Summary: This is a feature filled head unit that allows one to tweak numerous sonic settings. This is important to me since so much source material is marred by poor or inaccurate equalization. Not to mention the poor acoustics in your auto which further ... read more

  • Great for a Year

    Pros: Great sound quality. Full featured.
    Cons: Breaks after 1 year. Presets and Clock hard to set.

    Summary: I originally bought this unit to replace the Kenwood KRC-709 head unit that had mysteriously stopped working after a year and three months of service. The sound quality was fantastic and the features were wonderful. I agree with other reviewers that set ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great sound, nice display, many features.
    Cons: Advanced options can be difficult to learn at first.

    Summary: The basic features of the unit are very easy to use. It is very intuitive. I first ran into troubles when I wanted to customize what was displayed while playing mp3s. The first time or two require using the manual. Programming stations was also a bit ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent overall, great sound, many features
    Cons: Screen display Mediocre, No RDS, difficult to program stations and menus

    Summary: Having played with this deck about 3 weeks now, I feel I've had it long enough to make an objective review. The unit itself is great with many features, but plan on spending some time trying to figure out how to use it! After installing it I was ... read more

    Cons: unreliable

    Summary: This is a nice deck. Cool displays. Nice form factor. Great sound. Many sound modes. One thing is that there is no mute. Not terribly reliable it seems. One time the deck wouldn't tilt down to let me get at the CD tray. Disconnected/reconnected ... read more

    Pros: Deck works great for you until you want SIRIUS Loud clean and has great options.
    Cons: Junk after a you add SIRIUS to many moving parts therefore more things that break.

    Summary: I purchased this deck as a demo. I abused it for about a year, LOVING this deck I thought I'd up grade and add on SIRIUS RADIO. I dont want to get in to SIRIUS RADIO and how much it SUCKS TOO, but what happens with this deck and the 850 and the 719, is ... read more
