A particularly sturdy performer at a great price, this offering from Kenwood has an appearance and feature set somewhat belying its position at the lower end of the price range. With an eye-catching LCD display capable of displaying MP3 tag information and a large rotary knob in the center, the DPX501BT looks the part.

The unit is another to receive comments on the screen brightness, some saying it’s too dim while others seem to have found an extra setting allowing them to successfully ramped up the brightness to something more useful.

Device connectivity is good, with both Android and iOS users happily connecting their devices to the unit via the popular audio apps.

The DPX501BT also scores highly when it comes to setting up. Buyers were happy with the no-nonsense installation and the snug fit of the unit inside the dashboard.
