Summary: I purchase this unit two years ago but noticed that when you remove the face plate to much the connectors from the face plate to the deck short the speaker channels not sure how to remedy this or have it repair.
I am very disappointed at what seems like deliberate planned obsolescence

Summary: This player after 1 year the bass/treble adjuster stopped working. So I was stuck with one setting. then after another year it died altogether. Never in my lifetime have I ever had a car player completely die, even after years of service.
Newer single din Alpine radios are horrible compared to this one. Not compatible with newer iPods/iphones.

Summary: Good Radio. I just bought it because the new Alpine radios are not a good looking as this one. The screen is great (may be too bright even whit the dimmer). It is bluetooth compatible which means you need to buy an expensive and hard to get (now) bluetooth receiver.
Summary: Nice receiver with enough power to push four smaller speakers in a stock vehicle setting. Very good sound as has been expected from ALPINE. I recommend you team up with a 4 channel amp and 6x9 rear with 6 1/2 fronts. As a stand alone, Really good sound while not blowing the budget!
