Summary: Unit was installed in my Subaru in a less than expected time. I did need to call Crutchfield Customer Support and they were super helpful. Sounds way better than the stock unit it replaced. All the features I need and looks great.
Summary: I've always been a fan of alpine quality (overall and sound). But for some reason, this HU did not produce "my" expected sound quality out of my stock speakers. I seem to remember my stock HU (fujitsuten) sounding more to my liking.
Summary: In my opinion Alpine is the best. I've been using them for the last 15 yrs and never had one break down on me. I always was able to sell them and upgrade to a newer unit. It might not be the nicest unit, but has the best sound quality and built to last and easy to use.
Summary: I usually always stick with alpine but after 2 months of this unit I've had it.after the firmware update it no longer auto connects to Bluetooth and alpine has no eta on an update only stating that they are working on it.
Stereo I was dreaming about for a long long long time

Summary: WOW. This is the stereo I was dreaming about for a long long long time. 4 months ago I got from Crutchfield Alpine CDE-136BT and I was OK with it, but screen information was so limited, it was really bother me. I Google Alpine in Europe and I find this radio, I was praying to have this.
