Kenwood DMX8709S 6.8" Screen Receiver, Wireless Android Auto & Apple CarPlay


In-dash entertainer

The Kenwood DMX8709S multimedia receiver is a premium command center for a top-notch infotainment system. With built-in wired and wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, you'll have all your most-used phone features a touch away on its big 6.75" capacitive touchscreen display. And if you're looking for some alternative music sources, it supports high-res audio playback, plus satellite radio when you add an optional tuner. Bluetooth® makes hands-free calling and wireless music streaming easy.



Link your phone


Apple CarPlay and Android Auto let this stereo's controls behave like your phone's interface, so there's no learning curve. Plug in or wirelessly link your Android™ or iPhone®, and you'll get voice control access to your navigation, phone calls, weather, text messages, and of course all your music. Get more info at and 


Android owners, you can mirror your phone's screen using this receiver's USB port and the free Mirroring OA for Kenwood app. This receiver's micro-HDMI input also lets you mirror the screen from select phones by using a compatible HDMI adapter for your phone (sold separately) and Kenwood's KCA-HD200 micro HDMI-to-HDMI cable.



Bluetooth for everyone in the car


With the DMX8709S, you can pair two Bluetooth-equipped phones and quickly switch between them for hands-free calling — an excellent road trip convenience. And when you're streaming music, Kenwood's Music Mix lets you pair five phones so everybody can pick their tunes for an on-the-fly listening session.



Add a backup cam and two more


Vehicle cameras are a must for safer driving, and Kenwood gives you two dedicated video inputs for front and backup cameras. And if you need one more, you can configure this receiver's rear 3.5 mm A/V input as a third camera input. You can use the display's electronic angle adjustment to tailor the screen's contrast for the best viewing in your vehicle's dash location. This Kenwood plays video content in bright, clear detail when you're parked. When you're on the road, you can entertain your passengers by sending a movie from the receiver to a rear-seat screen.



Music for the road


When your phone's not plugged in, this receiver's rear USB input opens up your source options too, and there's great news for audiophiles — this receiver supports high-res file playback of music stored on a USB drive. And if you're looking for radio stations that won't fade away, add a SiriusXM tuner (not included) to this Kenwood to enjoy satellite radio's extensive programming wherever you may roam.




Deep tone controls

If you're a big-time system builder, you'll appreciate how the DMX8709S includes three pairs of 4-volt RCA preamp outputs for an ultra-clean signal when you add amplifiers to your system. And if you're building a 3-way system, this receiver gives you that next-level crossover capability.


You'll also dig Kenwood's suite of sound-crafting tools, including a 13-band equalizer, deep crossover settings, and built-in digital time alignment. The receiver's processing power brings back the depth and detail of all your digital music sources. If your car speakers are located down low in the doors, this receiver offers Stage EQ, which adjusts your music's frequencies to virtually "raise" your speakers for better-sounding, more natural imaging.



iDatalink Maestro lets you keep your factory extras


Combined with an iDatalink Maestro RR or RR2 interface (sold separately), the DMX8709S includes intuitive vehicle integration that lets you keep factory features that you'd otherwise lose when you install a new radio. Once you've identified your vehicle, you'll see the iDatalink module offered on the way to the Shopping Cart if it's compatible.


Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.




Smartphone note: If you're going to use your smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.


You'll need a wired connection to your parking brake to access settings and other features on this receiver. Your parking brake must be connected and set in order to view video on its screen.
