Summary: My husband has the Alpine x100 and loves it, naturally we assumed that the x300 would be even better and got it for my car. I hate it, it's much harder to navigate to search for what song you want.
Summary: This isn't a bad stereo, but its replacements include Imprint/Audyssey, which make them so much better than this one that you would have to pay me more than 400k for me to put it in my car instead. It's just not worth it anymore. Hold out for a iDA-X305 or iDA-X303 instead. Imprint is a must!
Summary: In an age where many people no longer want a cd player in their vehicle and would prefer a reciever with an input for an iPod, stereo manufacturers must be worried. After all, how can they justify charging us hundreds of dollars for a simple radio with a USB input?
