Summary: My 2nd Blaupunkt from Crutchfield and I can't help bu be impressed. Very clean looking unit with easy to use controls. Radio reception is fantastic(about the best of any units I've ever used).
Pros: Very clean looking unit. Easy to use controls. Incredible radio reception.
Cons: Mounting depth is a bit deep(but I knew it was going to be a tight fit in an '04 Vibe when I ordered it).
Cons: CD player overheats and shuts down after 3 to 4 tracks, My 8 track from the 70's had better quality sound. The USB port is so cheap the thumb drive will fall out on the interstate highway. FM reception works like a satellite dish in the rain.
Summary: It's a decent unit for the price. It sound better than my factory system, but it doesn't give that wow factors that the Blaupunkt from the 80's and 90's use to give me. Blaupunkt has undoubtedly cut back on quality.
Pros: Easy to install and operate. Reasonable sound quality
Cons: Display panel is not visible on a bright day. It could you a "loudness" button to boost the sound. USB port is hard to find in the dark - It's not lit and the port cover is very flimsy
Summary: This is an excellent choice for any car. My 1973 VW Super Beetle had the dash modified for another Blaupunkt, years ago. Many VW's have been modified to fit other radios. This fit right into the previous hole and the sound is great.
Pros: sound quality, easy installation, USB and alt input
Summary: Really nice stereo. Looks great in '79 Alfa Spider. Simple design will look good for a long time. Relatively easy install. Sounds great powering 2 Infinity Kappa speakers in kick plate. Hooked to Kenwood 2 channel powering Infinity Kappa on parcel shelf. Sounds great!!!!
Pros: Great classic looks w/o tacky lights & styling (most Japanese brands). Adequate power for 2 speakers sounds great with amp.
Cons: Limited instructions & menu isn't user friendly
Summary: The Blaupunkt Cupertino 220 is a really good looking receiver especially if you are looking to use in a classic car and desire to not distract the look and feel of the automobile.
Pros: Great minimalist looks, reasonable sound quality, ipod connectivity, usb connectivity, easy installation. Removable faceplate is a great theft deterrent when installed in a convertible vehicle such as mine.
Cons: Wiring improperly labeled by the manufacturer. + and - speaker wires were labeled in reverse fortunately i knew how to properly wire otherwise the outcome may not have been so good. Blaupunkt needs to do something about their quality control department.
Summary: Bought the Blaupunkt Cupertino from Crutchfield to put in my commuter Beetle. I started with stock speakers but since uprated those to Pioneer 3 ways in front and Infinity reference speakers in the rear.
Summary: This is the first aftermarket headunit I have installed and so far I am very impressed. This head unit brought out the quality of my stock speakers and allowed me to use my phone or ipod to play better quality music.
Pros: Clean simple look, great sound quality, easy to use remote, simple to install, charges phone and ipod, when it doesnt read the device you can still use the usb to charge it while using aux for audio.
Cons: Does not always read devices through usb cord, the face is not very bright and can be difficult to see during the day when it is bright outside.
Summary: Good for VWs no wire harness required, factory harness plugs right into the unit. Good power and pretty good sound, not a lot of adjustments for sound, just bass and treble, no mid setting. Matches dash lights perfect. I have a 2000 passat.
Pros: Matches VW dash lights, good power. Easy install in 2000 passat, took less than 15 min.
