Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-7000S and Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-9000S

Die neuen Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-7000S und Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-9000S sollen sich mit Internet Radio, DAB+, Spotify Connect, CD-Player und Bluetooth als besonders vielseitige, gleichzeitig sehr kompakte Lösungen präsentieren.

Micro HiFi systems such as the new Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-7000S and Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-9000S are very popular with many users, as they offer the possibility of consuming music in the smallest of spaces in the most varied of ways.

The two systems from JVCKENWOOD Corporation are particularly versatile, because they offer not only radio and CD plus numerous connection options, but also streaming via the network and, of course, the integration of Bluetooth devices.

CD receivers of the latest design – Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-7000S and Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-9000S

Sticking to classic categories, the two new systems Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-7000S and Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-9000S would have to be described as CD receivers, and in a very compact form.

First of all, both systems have an audio CD player as a source, plus a radio with FM including RDS, and DAB+. For both types of reception, the systems each offer 20 station memories, so you can call up your favourite stations at the touch of a button.

USB ports on both the Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-7000S and Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-9000S provide another option for easy music playback, allowing you to use the corresponding storage media directly as a source.

Bluetooth must not be missing

Smartphones, tablets and notebooks can also be connected to the systems in a flash, thanks to Bluetooth.

If you want to connect analogue sources, you can also do so via a 3.5 mm stereo mini-jack as an AUX input.

Music streaming via network

Of course, you can also integrate the Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-7000S and Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-9000S into the network, in which case Internet radio is also available. Podcasts can also be accessed, with a further 40 storage locations for preferred stations or content.

Both systems also allow direct access to the most popular streaming service, Spotify, and are designed for Spotify Connect. In the end, only the Spotify app is needed to directly select the two systems Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-7000S and Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-9000S and play them back.

Nevertheless, the manufacturer refers to another app for convenient control of the two micro hi-fi systems, namely the free UNDOK app.

A suitable remote control is also included in the scope of delivery, and even direct control of the units is possible via a generously dimensioned display.

This dimmable TFT colour display has a diagonal of about seven centimetres and provides all relevant information.

Two-way loudspeaker systems included

The Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-7000S has an integrated amplifier with an output power of two times 30 watts and comes with two particularly compact two-way speaker systems. The metal cabinet of the central unit measures 200 mm in width and 115 mm in height.

The Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-9000S is somewhat larger, by six centimetres in width, with the CD drawer and display centrally located between the rotary controls for volume and tuning/select. The amplifier here produces two times 50 watts, while the two two-way bass-reflex speaker systems with 30 mm dome tweeters and 130 mm bass-midrange speakers, which are included in the scope of delivery and are approximately 26 cm high and 17 cm wide, are supposed to provide a powerful and detailed hi-fi sound.

Both solutions are expected to be available from specialist retailers in August 2021. The recommended retail price for the Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-7000S is €229 and for the Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-9000S €279. For both models, you can choose between black and silver.

Getting to the point

The two solutions Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-7000S and Kenwood Smart Micro HiFi System M-9000S prove to be compact yet versatile micro hi-fi systems. In principle, a classic CD receiver serves as the basis, but in addition to radio via FM and DAB+, Internet radio, streaming via Spotify and Bluetooth are also available here.
