Summary: I bought this as an upgrade to my car factory stereo and I couldn't believe my ears, the difference is astonishing, it looks great and it sounds awesome. Who needs it to play when you can throw 1,500 music files into a thumb drive and play them randomly or otherwise? Beats the compact in my humble opinion. I was also pleasantly surprised by the incredibly fast delivery from the West coast to the East. Kudos to the GoogolShop people. I highly recommend this beauty.
Pioneer delivers high quality at an affordable price, as usual.

Summary: I've used nothing but Pioneer head units for over a decade. I've always been happy with their price to performance ratio. All of my Pioneer head units have been entry level models except a Premier unit I owned before this one. This Pioneer product is just as good as the rest, low cost, great quality. Like other entry-level Pioneer units, it has a 3-band EQ and offers good versatility in settings for when you hook up a sub.
