What we think

The Kenwood DNX572BH offers high end quality with a price tag to match. At the higher end of the in dash device selection, it may not be for everyone. But with a host of exceptional features, all driven by reliable, updated technology, it’s got a lot to offer for the right person.

The first thing you notice about the Kenwood DNX572BH is its size. These days, the vast majority of in dash devices tend to be 7 inches across. Kenwood have gone for a 6.2 inch screen, making it a touch more compact, which could potentially make it harder to use. Thankfully, there’s no damage to ease of use with the reduced screen size. The Kenwood DNX572BH can be navigated with a responsive touch screen that functions exactly as you’d want it to do. On top of that, if you’re an iOS user, the Siri Eyes Free system means that you can use the Kenwood DNX572BH with minimal distraction from your driving. Bluetooth allows for hands free controls, and if you’re on Android, the Pandora system allows for quick, easy navigation of your media.

The Kenwood DNX572BH features a built in Garmin navigation system already programmed with a large number of points of interest. Garmin have been leaders in satnav systems from the beginning, and are one of the main players in the industry. As a result, you can rest assured that you’ve got a reliable, functional satnav system at your fingertips.

The Kenwood DNX572BH plays both DVDs and CDs with no problems, as well as a selection of other audio formats. The built in radio tuner offers high definition radio, while a USB connection for ipods or other devices means that you can play music directly off a device with minimum fuss. A built in amplifier at 22 watts RMS/50 peak, with 4 channels, guarantees high sound quality and covers a wide range. The device has no problems playing straight off a flash drive with lossless FLAC files up to 192kHz / 24 bit. All in all, it has everything covered when it comes to audio playback.

Review

Joe MacEachern bought the Kenwood DNX572BH and says “All sounds great so far, with no complaints”, and reckons that “For the bang for bucks I feel I made out great”. Meanwhile, K. Blanchette said it is a “Great stereo” with “The best price out there”. All together, definitely one to look into.
