Can anyone tell me if Crutchfield will be carrying this item?
The answer is yes! While the item does not yet appear on our external website, it is available for pre-order over the phone. Right now, the ETA on this model is 3/3/10 so we should be able to begin shipping the stereo on Wednesday, if not Thursday.
Once the item is made available to our online customers, you will find it on our website here.
I hope that helps.
I'd be interested in hearing impressions of this unit if you or anybody else obtains one.
In particular, I'd like to know if the volume/control knob is a simple rotate/push control, or the rotate/push/4-way tilt (that doesn't work very well) like the other Kenwood units. The manual seems to imply the former, which IMO would be an improvement.
Also like to know if the USB media implementation is saddled with the common quirks--file/folder structure limitations, write order/sort order, slow/unreliable read errors, and just plain flakiness.
I'd try to look at one locally, but nobody carries the Excelon line.
Well I installed this HU last Friday and yes it's just a simple rotate/push control. So far I really love it and it really blows away the Alpine IDA-X I had. I have a 30 GB Ipod with about 24GB of songs on it and the Alpine would sometimes struggle to go through the list of artists but this thing just runs through them like it's nothing.
I recently purchased the KDC-X794 and I was wondering if there was a pause between tracks. Like when it goes from one track to the next, is there a 1-2 second pause?
I listen to a lot of live music, which some songs tend to transition into the next one, and there is a split between tracks/songs. When using the USB source there is a 1-2 second pause, which is annoying.
I was just wondering if this happens with the iPod?
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
