Summary: After a lot of research, Q&A, forum threads, and discussions with audio techs, I ended up buying this HU for several and specific reasons: My car is a 1998 Mercedes - Benz E320 with the Bose speakers.
Summary: Oh man. May the UI gods smite thee! Worst interface I've ever used on any device. Sound quality: Good. Audio options? Good. Interface? Awful. This is the most non-intuitive, convoluted interface ever. Simple tasks are tedious. - Need to turn it down real fast?
Great sound quality and features. Cheap build quality.

Summary: The audio quality is definitely there if you have all your components set up correctly, but the build quality is an absolute disgrace for a higher level unit. Pioneer sells a big home theater unit for $250 with a thick metal frame at least 3 square feet in size, firm buttons, solid volume knob,...

Summary: Good unit. Lots of audio tuning features to play with. Cons: -Mediocre display. A simple non-animated display would have been better than this cheap display. -Knob outside diameter stops face plate from opening enough to access CD or SD slot.
Summary: This is by far the cleanest sounding hu I've heard!!! strong 5v pre-outs, time alignment, auto eq I should've gotten this deck years ago and you should buy it now if your thinking about it it's not about what's on the outside ....

Summary: Since 2003 I have use 4 Pioneer head units: first was DEH 77 MP, second to replace it: DEX-P 99 RS, each of them in my Sunday car. In my daily car I first choose a DEH 6200Bt. I now replace it by this DEH80 Prs. About the technics and audio capacities I rate it 18/20.
