Summary: I already have one of these exact receivers in my truck and I love it. So I was trying to find the same model for my car since my wife has finally figured out how to operate the one in the truck. Turns out, it's been discontinued so I went to ebay hoping to find one which I luckily did. The unit can be a little intimidating for first time users but once you play around with it a little, it is pretty easy to use.
Summary: I'm so glad I got this it has made an unbelievable difference in the overall sound quality of my stereo. I love the 16 band equalizer it is one of the main reasons I wanted this particular deck. Besides that it has lots of other audio settings to make for an awesome crystal clear sound from my speakers.
Summary: do not buy this unit or any Pioneer car unit. car audio service center says they see almost exclusively Pioneer units. EXTREMELY poor customer service. Pioneer is skating on their past reputation. faceplate components are garbage. nice looking... that's about it. controls don't work after 10 months of light use.
Great buy and great features for the price I paid.

Summary: I purchased this head unit for $89 + shipping and it was well worth it, the features are amazing. It doesn't have as much control over the audio as my old alpine but then again neither do the new alpines. I was looking for something with usb support and crossovers for around this price and this fits that category well. I have yet to find out if the usb has enough power to run a 2.5" external hard drive but I do know it worked with my powered 3.5" 120gb external fine.
Summary: I've had this for a few months now. Previously I had the DEH-P7600MP. Better than the P7600: * USB * Ability to show 2 or 3 lines of track information at once * List view of all folders Worse than the P7600: * Joystick control * Navigation through directories * No pause button * Doesn't fit into the dashboard tightly * Top line of display is hidden behind panel if you view it from the driver's seat The worst part is the navigation through folders.
Summary: It only does everything, like the ps3:D. The two usb inputs work great specially when you're on the go with new music and don't have the time to put them in your ipod. The two auxilary inputs are also great, I use one for my sat radio and the other is open for any other source like another mp3 plaer etc.
