KENWOOD CAR AUDIO:
|Kenwood electronics started in 1946 as the Kasuga Radio Co. Ltd. In Komagane City, Nagano Prefecture, Japan. In 1960, the Kenwood was renamed "Trio Corporation". 1963 saw the foundation of Kenwood USA, the first overseas office of Trio, in Los Angeles, California, USA.
In the early 1960s, The LaFayette Radio Company rebranded and sold Trio's products, unfortunately focusing on the doomed 23-channel CB radio.
Innovation at the company was very significant during this period. Trio built oscilloscopes, such as the popular 10 MHz CS-1562A. Kenwood introduced Japan's first FM tuner and solid state amplifier. The company introduced an amplifier with integrated audio and video signal switching in 1981. This product is seen as a precursor to today's home cinema systems.
In 1984, Kenwood car audio designed and manufactured the first anti-theft car stereo receiver. In 1986, Trio-Kenwood became Kenwood Corporation.
Kenwood introduced its Sovereign line of components in 2001. This high-end line competes with wekk known brands of other manufacturers such as Pioneer Elite, Sony ES, Onkyo Integra, and Matsushita Technics. In the car audio market, the "eXcelon" line similarly competes Pioneer Premier and Sony Mobile ES brands.
