Incredible sound and good features. The "pro setup" options let you tailor the stereo to your car. I used the pre-outs and a separate amp, so I don't know about the amp section, but the pre-outs give top quality sound. The hands free Bluetooth (phone) works very well, as does USB streaming.
The two cons are minor, but worth mentioning. First, the presets are clumsy to get to, especially while you're driving. Second, the stereo has an annoyingly long delay when responding to button presses or settings changes. These hold the unit back from getting the full 5 stars.
The pros outweigh the cons by a wide margin, though.
The display is awesome. There are a lot of different options to configure everything (pro audio setup, display, colors, etc, etc.)
The EQ is just great.The sound is flawless.
I guess the only disadvantage is that this unit is just a bit slow to access to MP3 songs compare to a PIONEER
Well for the first week this headunit was by far the best I have ever had. Then, about 2 weeks later, the head unit started acting up and does not work properly. It has a adjustable equalizer that you can either go through it or bypass but there is no sound in the through possition. It still works but now I cannot set the equalizer up how I want.
Excelente producto, funciona de lo mejor. Buen volumen de salida, la radio suena excelente, lo recomiendo a toda la comunidad, si deseas un equipo con un sonido potente y a la vez FIEL con todos los graves y agudos de la cancion original, entonces este equipo es tu eleccion SEGURA.
