Summary: Its a very good radio, has good sound and work smooth with usb memories, reminds the last song played and plays from that point. The illumination has beautiful colors, the effects become annoying with the time. To keep in mind, does not have cover for the detachable panel. Works well with the ipod nano using the regular cable, but the iphone looks to need an especial aplication and/or an especial cable.
Summary: I am going to start with the Cons of this receiver: The only thing I do not like about this receiver is that you can not adjust the treble mid and bass. They have it set in hz and I am not that audio inclined when it comes to that. The pros: The colors are great Faceplate looks great The ipod usb hook up works flawlessy. As soon as I plug it in, it works crystal clear and perfect I would recommend this deck if you are looking for an affordable but high performing deck.
Summary: I don't give perfect scores but this thing is worth it. Waw I love the different colours probably about 15 idk. It really shows the quality of my speakers. Nice. Delivery on time. iPod nano works and iphone. Really easy to use as well. I didn't use the manual. There are 3 presets categories for FM. Remote works.
Summary: After 20+ years of replacing stereos in cars I buy I have decided to stop trying new manufacturers and just stick with a great stereo everytime. I bought two of these and they are great stereos, and for the price they are unbelievable. The manual is a little hard to follow, but they usually are. It only takes a few minutes with the controls to figure it out, and the changing colors is very cool. Pioneer stereos have always been great! A+ every time.
Summary: I bought this to replace an old Pioneer KEH-P6010 radio/cassette head unit connected to a Pioneer CDX-PD6 6-disk CD changer when the disk changer failed after about 12 years. These are in a 1991 Saab 900 convertible, which has two separate single-DIN slots -- and nobody makes a single-DIN in-dash CD changer anymore (or at least they're very hard to find -- or very expensive (Pioneer XDV-P6).
Pros: Although I miss having 6 CDs of music to play before repeating, the front-panel USB connecter on the DEH-X3600UI seems as if it will soon make that feeling obsolete. It's a little messy having an iPhone or iPod connected, but as soon as I can get a small (physically) USB flash drive loaded with mp3s, I'll have a lot more tunes than could fit on 6 CDs.
Cons: As others have remarked, the "Mixtrax" button is much too bright and can't be dimmed. The rest of the display is too dim, at least in daylight with the top down. As near as I can tell, the "dimmer" button doesn't do anything visible. Using the menu system, you can set the "brightness" from level 1 to level 4 with "dimmer on" and to level 5 with "dimmer off" but adjusting brightness in this way is very dangerous while driving. Unlike the old unit, the dash light dimmer...
