Kenwood's Superb New Flagship Receivers. - 22/08/20

When talking flagship receivers one intrinsically expects a sizable amount of fanfare, especially when coupled with a boisterous marketing campaign. Kenwood however prefers to play things a little differently; it's commotion is more subdued, with the Japanese giant preferring to let its receivers do all the talking rather than a trumped up marketing campaign. See Kenwood has been developing high quality consumer products since 1946 and inherently possesses more technological acumen than most other companies will ever manage. This means that when Kenwood introduces new flagship receivers those in the know tend to sit up and take notice. Such was the case with the announcement of the stunning new DNX9190DABS navigator and DDX9019DABS receiver.

Although physically similar in frontal appearance to many within the Kenwood stable, in reality the part number is not the only thing gargantuan about these new receivers. Their ability lists are intimidating to say the least, with just the acronyms alone spanning literally pages. Metaphorically speaking the crafty designer has left no rock unturned, cramming an incredible amount of functionality and technology into the standard double DIN sized chassis.
