Junk

Michelle L., Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: If you just want something to make noise than buy this. Horrible sound, radio won't stay tuned, balance for left and right speakers will not fade it is only an all left, all right or center and will not stay where set. Radio tuning dial moves but does not correctly point to station tuned in.

crap

Marilou Johnson, Amazon
9 April 2015
  • Summary: I will explain why I gave this one star in a moment. After installing this POS I found out the SD card slot didn't work but neither did the usb port. The tuner is stuck on a station that apparently does not exist in the US.

Seriously...It's a 20 Dollar radio

Jay Dee Gee, Amazon
5 April 2015
  • Summary: A lot of the reviewers here are expecting Gold quality at a Bronze price. This item was installed in a 35 year old farm tractor. The tuner works great, as does the SD card slot. I expect it will work as long as the last 20 dollar radio (10 years) I can't imagine there is much of a market for knob...

Don't waste your time

Eric Starr, Amazon
5 March 2015
  • Summary: I know it's only 20 bucks but your throwing 20 bucks away. And the effort of ordering and installing is worth more than that. I purchased this because the specs say it's 80 watts per channel x 2 channels and I needed a shaft style radio. No way it has 80 watts per channel!

Terrible sound, reception & USB functions

Jeffrey Christensen, Amazon
13 January 2015
  • Summary: I was optomistic when I received the stereo as it felt 'heavy' and built of good quality. The plastic was decent and it came with a couple optional brackets to help it fit snug. I ordered this for an old '74 truck that had a dual know AM radio and didn't want to cut the opening for a newer stereo...

Bow, Amazon

  • Summary: 1/06/2015 Don't buy it is junk. Wired up radio and installed and did not work. Found radio came wired with a 240volt ac 3amp fuse that was burnt out. Had to replace fuse holder so I could install a 7.5 amp dc fuse.

do not expect it to sound like a pioneer or kenwood

Rafael Pantin, Amazon
12 December 2014
  • Summary: It is what it is, do not expect it to sound like a pioneer or kenwood, it is a cheap radio that has a slot and USB ports, watt ratting is over estimated it does not have that power published no way, and shaft to shaft is 5.5 not 6.5 inches as published, it sounds, can hear my alternator in the back...

Shafted by the shaft mount. Center section is much too large for standard mount.

Steve M. Close, Amazon
6 November 2014
  • Summary: Edit: Now that it's installed (after some cutting of center console, which makes me wonder why I didn't just cut it out entirely and go with a modern design) it sounds pretty good. Oddly, the USB side sounds better than the card side.

Too Cheap

Jeffrey S., Newegg
1 November 2014
  • Summary: Pyle really botched it on this one. I expected it to be cheaply made based on the price, but unfortunately there really isn't anything else out there for 2 shaft style radios that cost less than $500.
  • Pros: 2 - Shaft Style Radio. MP3 player sounds good at low volume.
  • Cons: Its just too cheap. Uses mono receiver and amplifier IC's. Analog variable capacitor tuner is weak and drops in and out when moving.

May get you by

Brian L., Newegg
15 October 2014
  • Summary: There are very few new shaft radios out there for older vehicles. Not much to choose from. This may get you by until you find a good used shaft radio.
  • Pros: Will read various memory cards, priced right for the quality. arrived quickly. Easy to install. Newegg has always been a favorite store of mine.
  • Cons: Still sounds like a Pyle, tone not bass or treble leave one wanting for digital quality. The radio came without knobs as if it was a demo.
