Kenwood KOS A200 - External Media Controller with RDS Encoder (USB Sirius
Ready). Shipped with USPS Priority Mail.
As the stereo systems in new cars get more complex and offer more options, it
gets more and more difficult to upgrade to a brand-name stereo. Kenwood's
KOS-A200 External Media Controller lets you enjoy the variety of entertainment
options Kenwood offers, without replacing your factory stereo. It features an
array of inputs that let you integrate a variety of sources into your factory
system, so you can enjoy the entertainment options offered by Kenwood systems,
yet maintain the familiar layout of your factory system.
Just connect this interface to your radio via the car's antenna input and
supply it with power and ground. You get two auxiliary audio inputs for
portable music players and other audio sources, plus a USB input, which lets
you connect MP3 players, thumb drives, and other devices with USB outputs. You
also get an input for accessories that usually only work with Kenwood in-dash
stereos, including a SIRIUS or XM satellite radio, iPod® interface, CD changer,
or HD Radio tuner.
If you have an RDS-compatible factory stereo that can display text info, then
you'll see artist, album, and song name from your satellite radio, HD Radio
tuner, or iPod on your stereo's display. You control the KOS-A200 and your
Kenwood components with the included remote.
This interface also works directly with Kenwood car stereos, using a direct
BUS connection rather than the FM antenna connection. You can use it to add up
to four sources to your Kenwood stereo.
