Summary: I have had this deck for almost 3 years. I have installed it in 3 different vehicles. It still works perfect. I was worried it wanted to die on me last year, because the faceplate was unresponsive and flickering. Being oldschool, I remembered nintendo cartridges for some reason. So I cleaned the contacts on the deck and faceplate with alcohol. working great ever since. I use the aux input quite a bit with my Zune.
Summary: The pioneer DEH4800MP receiver performs excellently. My only difficulty was understanding its many features. Now that I am familiar with it, I think it is the right stuff for anyone's ride. I love it and intend to make a similar for my brother.
Summary: First of all this unit is way beyond basic especially at the Amazon.com price. I'll explain.... WOW.... This this unit rocks!! This is my first Pioneer and now I'm kicking myself for not buying pioneer before. The best parts of this stereo for me are: Great price, awesome internal crossovers for your highs and lows. Aux in jack for MP3 players, remote, Satellite ready, plays mp3's and wma's,strong internal amp. Very clean sound.
Summary: I was looking for a Tuner/CD player to replace the AM/FM Cassette that came with my six year old Honda. While this unit is very basic, it makes the speakers in the car sound a heck of a lot better. On the Plus side: the ability to play MP3 and WMA discs (I can now carry around a single disc with almost 200 Beatle tunes as opposed to 10 or 12 individual CDs), a choice of six "Equalizer Curves" enables you to tailor the sound to your tastes, Bass Boost and Loudness control...
