      I would like to tell you about my experience with Kenwood’s KRC-256 In-Dash Cassette Receiver. We have it installed in the car and I have been using it for several years now. It works very well and I am quite pleased with it!

      KRC-256 is a great radio receiver and cassette player. The thing I like best about it is its simplicity. It is very easy to use. The user interface is basic with all the familiar radio buttons: turn radio on/off, AM/FM, higher/lower volume, auto-scan for a radio station and so on.

      I like the fact that things are simple, because it makes it easier for me to use. I usually hear the radio while driving. I need to concentrate on my driving and always leave my eyes on the


      road. I feel that keeping the radio simple to operate is very convenient for me and also safer!

      I work as a software engineer outside of town and travel to work almost every day. I like to hear the news, radio programs and music while driving. Although part of the way is a highway, where I travel around 120 kilometers per hour, I still can hear the radio clearly. So, I must say that the radio reception and voice quality are very good!

      Another great feature that I like is the ability to auto-scan radio frequencies until I reach a radio station. I find it very useful especially when I am in an area with low reception, or when I am tired of hearing the same old radio programs and try ...


      • to find a new station to listen to.

        Once I find a new radio station, I can simply press on any of the six radio station buttons to “bookmark” that station. Next time, I simply press that button, and immediately reach that station. I think this is really cool and useful!

        The only disadvantage I find in this great quick-save system is that I am limited to saving a maximum of only six stations. This is the number of radio buttons available in KRC-256’s panel. Unfortunately, I can’t figure out a way how to save more radio stations, without overwriting old ones.

        I think this is a pity, because many people might be interested in hearing more than just six stations. I would be happy if there was such a possibility! I

        myself find it a little annoying that I must choose which stations I prefer to save, because of this limitation.

        KRC-256’s cassette player is very good too. It has regular cassette players’ buttons, like: fast forward, rewind, adjact etc. I like the fact that I can simply enter a cassette into it and it will automatically start playing it. I think it is nice that I don’t need to explicitly choose the “Tape” menu option to start playing.

        Of course, if I am not interested in playing the cassette right now, I can always choose “Radio” or turn it off completely. I believe Kenwood’s KRC-256 is a great product for every person who wants to hear radio and listen to cassettes while driving. I will rate it 9 out of a possible 10.
