Kenwood KMM BT-506DAB car radio test
“Equipment” rating: 38 out of 45 points
Score “Installation”: 44 out of 50 points
Score “Service”: 141 out of 150 points
Quality: The feel of the buttons is very high quality – this also counts for the general processing quality of the radio and the accessories supplied. The radio responds and works quickly and reliably. No quiescent current can be measured when the ignition is switched off. The radio lighting can be dimmed using the vehicle’s light switch, thus avoiding dazzling when driving at night. Note that was not included in the evaluation: After twenty minutes of driving, we measured a temperature of over 40 degrees Celsius on the case. Not dangerous, but other radios stay significantly cooler in the test.
“Quality” score: 55 out of 55 points.
Conclusion: The KMM-BT506DAB from Kennwood is definitely worth recommending. The radio can be operated intuitively, the reception is very stable and the hands-free system also works clearly. The buttons seem a bit small at first, but you can get used to them.
