Summary: It works but there are a couple things that make me wish I had gone with a different head unit. One is the equalizer is not the easiest to use, I would have been happy with a simple 7 or 5 band eq but instead you get a complicated menu system that makes it way harder than it needs to be.
Summary: my 19 year old absconded with this while I was in hospital, she installed it her self and made all connections with BT, she loves it sounds great looks great, could not be happier. She is now in for a shock, it is now a $199 more to replace than when I purchased it
Summary: Nice unit at first, but volume knob is very sensitive ( does more than volume control ) and one of the preset buttons doesn't work anymore. I like Alpine and always had good luck with them, just think I got a bad unit. I've had it just over a year now.
Summary: Gotta say Magic Sound sucks. They are out to make a quick buck and do not care if your products work or not. I returned this faulty stereo and they said we checked the pre amp out out andnit works. Hahaha u cant fully test a cd player just by checking the pre outs.
Summary: This headunit is pretty good. If you have a smartphone and are using apps such as Google Play or Pandora, this will work for you. Every now and then, when I get in the car, I must push the faceplate eject button and reset it to get the bluetooth going again.
Good sound quality and features, but short bluetooth range

Summary: I installed this receiver on my boat inside the cabin with the hope that I could connect my phone or iPod via bluetooth and keep that with me on deck to control the music. It works OK if you keep the device right at the door within line-of-sight (or close to it) of the receiver, but if I have it in...
Summary: I replaced an older but not old Alpine system with this one. The bluetooth works great, and does not require the external bluetooth receiver like my old one which never worked that well and finally quit. I've been using this one about a month and have enjoyed it.
Summary: Love this tuner. There are so many ways to contour the sound with this thing. It is very easy to operate despite the complex architecture of the device. Blue tooth synced up with my windows phone and Ipad3 fine. I would suggest getting the remote control for it, 15 bucks or so.
