Summary: Great radio -- but sometimes, it gets "stuck" thinking it's doing something. the only solution is to pull the power from it; which resets teh entire radio (including pre-sets) I would probably buy this again; but dash mount a 'on/off' button to make it easier to reset. NOTE: it does not control a JVC CD changer; but you can use it with their bluetooth antenna.
Summary: This is a decent little radio that does what it is supposed to. It is a low cost CD player and HD receiver with both a USB input and a 3.5mm input on the face. Sound is fine and the EQ features are exactly what you'd expect of a lower-end of the price spectrum car stereo. The only legitimate gripes about the unit itself are that the menus are a bit cumbersome to navigate and the clock keeps horrible time gaining minutes each week.
Summary: I got one of these last year and liked it so much that when it failed I got another. The reason I marked it down a star was primarily because it failed after less than two years of use (though it was on all day, every day). The sound quality is great, and unlike some radios, the pre-defined equalization curves are actually useful.
Summary: The radio is quite light and the frame it came with is suitable even for 'on face' mounting. The harness was pretty easy to set up, but then I was fixing it into a Japanese car and they are pretty standardized these days. Took about 40 mins from start to finish. The bezel fits tight and is pretty slim so it does not to be shaved to fit in the dash (nice change!) The sound is really good, clear and crisp with a tight bass.
Summary: After researching several similar receivers this one stood out based on price and overall functionality. Upon receiving the product the install was simple (1st receiver I've installed) and directions were enough to direct a rookie. Pros: easy install Seamless iPhone connection Advanced preferences for audio levels Cons: shuffling songs/artists/playlists on menu can be sensitive Too many options for lighting
Great HD radio tuner if your on a budget. But not the best.

Summary: I was very happy to find this stereo on amazon as it was the cheapest iPod capable HD radio available, and a quality one at that. Very happy with the sound. It pushes two 180w 6&1/2" and two 300w 6"*9" speakers just fine. And I love all the different color combinations on the control panel.
Summary: Have had this for about a month now and I'm very happy with it. I installed it myself in less than an hour and everything was easy and instructions clear. Sound is excellent with plenty of adjustments and equalizer - 5 or 6 preset and 1 for custom adjustment. I love the USB feature even though you can't browse through it to find a specific piece of music - I've learned to live with and really don't care anymore. For the price, it's hard to pass up.
Summary: the only real con is the lack of preset buttons, but unless you plan to set 18 different channels its not a big deal to flip through them. Install was pretty basic took about 45mins to pull my alpine out and put the new one in. I can't even explain how much i love the usb port on the front. I can plug my droid into it and use it like a mp3 player and charge it at the same time.
Summary: I love it. It's a lower end item - less, but enough, bells & whistles - but good sound quality, plenty of inputs for the average user (AM/FM/CD/iPod (requires jumper setting) & front input (also iPod frindly without any jumper change). Nice remote.
