Summary: has great fm reception and i use xm also a an aux input for it. Has easy to use front panel and great choice of colors for display and background, HD fm channels are very nice when you can get them, only seem to get them in or near big citys, nothing in the country yet, but you can notice a difference when you are on a HD station. Haven't played cd's in it yet, just like my xm mostly.
Summary: This is a great player/receiver. Its only drawback is that its menu seems complicated at first but as you delve into it, it becomes fairly logical. The HD radio reception is superb and the playback via iPod and flash drive is excellent and convenient.
Summary: I go an estimate at a 'brick & mortar' store, including install that was SKY HIGH! Product arrived promptly, and has a great sound. Fairly easy to install (read instructions, buy adapter plates as necessary).
Summary: I previously bought a Pioneer DEH 44 (aka 4400) radio, an earlier model for another car. The DEH-5500 has the same features, but a larger display which is easier to read. As with the earlier radio, it has just about every feature you might want in a car Stereo, except DVD playback and Bluetooth phone connection. Radio reception is excellent, including HD radio for better sound quality and extra channels.
Summary: I've had this Pioneer for about three months now, and I have to say, for what I wanted it works very well. Of course, I am no in-dash custom radio expert, this being my first custom radio that I have bought and has installed. The controls are easy to use, albeit the buttons may be a bit small, but it is something that can be easily overlooked. The menus are easy to navigate and discern from each other, and the preset EQs are excellent.
Summary: Looks great in my car(honda s2000). Has a lot of adjustment as far as equalizers and sound control. The instruction manual leaves something to be desired as far as how to work features on radio.
Summary: What more could you ask for? Pioneer has always been a winner with me but they simply keep getting better. Great sound, especially with the HD radio. Nice usb for multiple mp3s and albums on one stick. Who needs a cd changer these days? Plenty of bells and whistles, 5 band EQ, high pass, low pass, sub out control. And outstanding cd player. Love it!
