Crutchfield offers the Kenwood Excelon 6.8-inch Apple CarPlay & Android Auto Receiver (DDX6904S) for $449.99 shipped. Also at Amazon from trusted third-party retailers.

Not sure if you can install it? Best Buy’s Total Tech Support can handle that for you. Reviews are still coming in on this unit, but Kenwood is one of the most well-known names in the industry when it comes to car radios.

Crutchfield is making it easier than ever to get into the world of wireless whole home audio. The online retailer is offering two SONOS PLAY:1 speakers in white or black for $349 shipped.

Bowers & Wilkins make some of the best sounding (and looking!) audio gear. Every recertified B&W product has “…undergone rigorous testing to ensure they meet Bowers & Wilkins strict quality standards for both sonic performance and mechanical integrity,” and includes a 2-year warranty.

Amazon offers the recertified Bowers & Wilkins P5 headphones in black and gray for $199.99 with free shipping. As a pricing comparison, that’s $100 below the list price for new condition, $40 below B&W’s recertified price, and the lowest price we have ever seen. B&W believes the natural sound emitted from the P5 movie hi-fi headphones creates “true sound” that will change how you enjoy music:

Gimmicky effects like exaggerated bass or artificially enhanced treble quickly become tiring with extended listening. The P5’s natural audio performance brings you close to the sound of the original recording, as you were meant to hear it. Which means you can enjoy your favorite music for longer.

Other features include a made for iPhone remote/mic and “incredibly soft sheep’s leather.” Rated 4.2 out of 5 stars from 175 Amazon reviewers. expand full story
