View Full Version : Kenwood DNX8120 or DNX9140?

Im debating between the 2 for my truck. The last HU I have owned was a ddx812 and I really like the unit, but only owned it of a few months. I would get another one but want nav this time and have heard mixed reviews about the dnx9140. one guy said it has horrible lag with the album art and spoke with kenwood who stated that would not be fixed, sounds ****** to me, even though I could care less about album art. I dont want a pioneer I have never liked them and find they are lesser quality, or an eclipse since I have heard they are pulling out of the US all together.

price wise its about a $2-300 difference in favor of the dnx8120, but the 9140 is supposed to have new features. I was looking for something where I could compare them directly but havent found anything.

If anybody has owned or used both let me know what you think.

8120 is the same as the ddx812 just with nav. 9140 and 8120 both have the same lag on nav.
