Not bad at all!

Stephen from tampa, FL, Sonic Electronix

  • Conclusion: This was the first aftermarket radio I put in my car. To start everyone looks at Dual pretty poorly but I can honestly say I enjoy this HU. The iPod feature I use everyday and it works really well. USB port reads quickly and the sound quality is more than decent on all the modes. I used Bluetooth for awhile and loved the audio streaming from my phone but stopped using it because i don't know why but it just stopped connecting, so I stuck to the iPod feature.

Not Sure about this...

Tonymft from Fort Lauderdale, FL, Sonic Electronix
7 November 2011
  • Conclusion: This is my first radio purchase. Im not sure if the quality of the radio is the problem or if it could have been installed better, but I think it's the radio. I often here double talk during talk radio shows - One person will say something and I may hear it two times, like feedback. Also, there is static that shows up, like a buzzing sound. I have to disconnect the radio and push it back in, sometimes twice to fix it.

Great features for price, POOR Durability

Ryan from Costa Mesa, CA, Sonic Electronix
24 August 2011
  • Conclusion: To start, I had a good experience with the previous model (xhd6420), the HD radio was great and it had all the features that I could want. If the reception was not that great in an area it would switch seamlessly between standard and HD (when reception allowed) This one has been quite a different story... The first thing that became annoying is when it would switch from HD to standard radio (or the other way around) it would have a noticeable echo.

Holy Jeepers Batman!!

Robert from Coeur d' Alene, ID, Sonic Electronix
15 August 2011
  • Conclusion: WOW! Nice to install, a little frustrating at times but mostly installer error! But it makes my stock speakers sound like mini subs! Wow. A little distortion, but that is thanks to my stock speakers which will be replaced soon. Overall, great radio for the buy. Takes a few seconds to read the flash drives, but the iPod works great. Cant go to a different artist tho... bummer man!

Tons of features for the price , but has a few quirks.

Paul from MO, Sonic Electronix

  • Conclusion: I have owned this stereo for about 6 months so I have a good idea of it's strong and weak points. First the good. You can't get a better deal on a bluetooth enabled HD radio that has an aux jack, USB port and will run your IPOD (I don't have an IPOD so I can't say how well it works) The blu tooth works well, the best place for the mic is on the visor pointing directly at the driver.

  • Conclusion: Great sound and volume. reading flashdrives takes way too long. sometimes it jumps programing and you'll need to go thru the menu again to get it to play.

Good value HD radio

Kevin from Gray, TN, Sonic Electronix
9 February 2011
  • Conclusion: I like this stereo, I replaced my stock stereo with this when it went out. The only complaints I have are the HD mode isn't something that can be toggled, so if you have a radio station with a weak HD signal it will fade in and out as it keeps trying to re-acquire the signal. The display is a little small, and the bright blue back light for the buttons can not be dimmed.
