Conclusion: I have an older JVC deck so the automatic source switching went unconnected and I have to manually select the source but it still works excellent. I was surprised first at the sound quality. NO DETECTABLE background noise or degraded audio vs. directly connecting to the stereo. The range is also amazing. I can reliably play music from 40 feet away in my house into the garage with no dropouts.
Conclusion: Mostly good except for poor radio reception. DAB is ok but the normal radio is not great (and it's not the antenna). Also the FM stations wont go past preset 4 unless you are quick shuffling up and down, ie goes from 4 back to 1. Sometimes when you are away from DAB it will go back to preset 1 not the one you were on. The blue tooth adapter (purchased separately) often doesn't log back onto the iphone. Not sure if this is a fault of the head unit!!
THE JVC KS-BRA100 works better than the Parrot I have in my other car

Conclusion: I bought this item with the stereo that suggested the blue tooth adapter. I was amazed at how easy it works and the quality is great. No one ever asks me to repeat myself. I do have the cord to the mic running up the side interior and it hangs on the left corner of sun visor out of my line of site. I believe this unit works better than the Parrot system I have on my Suburban and it was less money.
Conclusion: I bought this to run on my JVC deck because I work on an army base and you can only use handsfree phone devices. It never has a problem connecting to my phone and audio/call quality is great. Plus I like the streaming music feature as well. Great accessory. Highly recommend.
