Kenwood KDC-BT49DAB BT/CD/MP3/USB/DAB Tuner with DAB antenna

Kenwood’s new in-car CD/iPod Control system now includes state-of-the-art DAB/DAB+. Using the latest digital chip set means listening to digital radio on the move is free of annoying breaks and distortion. Clever technology will even switch from DAB to FM (and back again) if there is a local signal problem.

Built in Bluetooth with A2DP music streaming

Kenwood music control app for Android

This unit includes the Kenwood DAB-A1 antenna for DAB reception. This is a discrete window film aerial avoiding the need to drill a hole in the vehicles body as previously required with less sensitive receivers.

Refurbished products are all 100% OK! In fact in most cases you may not be able to tell the difference from new , they represent amazing value for money. These products may be classed as refurbished for a number of reasons:

  • They may have been previously sold, and not put back on sale for cosmetic packaging reasons. This is often as little as a broken seal.
  • Alternatively, they may simply have incurred a minor amount of cosmetic packaging damage during handling in the day to day running of our business.
  • Some items may have been returned with a reported fault or where a customer had difficulty in using the product.


  • On occasion some items may show signs of minimal use, which may include minor cosmetic marks which do not affect the functionality in any way.
  • Although most of our refurbished products are sold in their original manufacturers packaging, there may be occasions, due to packaging damage, where plain white or brown packaging may be used.
  • In a small number of instances, it may have been necessary to substitute some original manufacture accessories with generic compatible models, for example DAB aerial.
  • Similarly, some original instructions or user manuals may be printed or photocopies of the original.
