Summary: There is really not much out there that comes close to this head unit. I am someone that is a bit leery about audio manufacturers that tout features without saying much about the efforts and technology used to to make their components sound great.
Pros: Sound quality and feature set.
Cons: There's a bit of a learning curve figuring out the controls. Nothing too difficult, and once you figure it out, it gets easy. At first it can seem a bit too involved and non-intuitive. Ultimately it's not bad, you just have to get past the initial getting acquainted stage.
Summary: I got this installed a few weeks ago. I waited to write this because it takes a little while to figure out this unit. I have it in a 2010 Tacoma it still has the factory door speakers but I installes a JL XD700/5 amp and a sealed prefab box with a alpine type R 10.
Summary: I have had my installs done at the very best shop, with high end Focal and JL components, amps, subs. Because the shop is used to high end (but they do not currently carry Pioneer), they have always been: "ho-hum, it's ready, here are your keys.
Pros: beautiful sound, beautiful understated appearance. words inadequate.
Cons: The color of the dial lighting is adjustable, but not the center text/ sound level display. The sound level display is something I have missed for years, it is absolutely awesome that this has it, and the white is great, so I am going to extreme effort to find a con, but here it is: It would be g...
Summary: Best SQ deck ever! But this deck is not for beginners. Very advanced tuning knowledge is required or your wasting your money. Wish they made this deck in a dbl din touch screen version. Would make tuning much easier, Please pioneer read this.
Pros: Beautiful sound quality. Great simple classy look.
Pros: This unit has so many sound adjustments for down right pure pleasure!!! Now due to all the setting make sure you have some time for sound adjusting with the unit! It's simple looking and that's what I needed for the car. Just ENDLESS SOUND
Cons: Not enough hours in the day to sit in the car and listen to whatever you prefer with adding a 32gb flash drive.
Summary: Out of the box performance. I installed this unit in a 2009 Challenger SRT8 using a McIntosh MC440 6ch amp. Hooked up to the stock speakers with no tuning and still blew me away with sound quality.
Pros: SQ. Very clean unit looks amazing
Cons: Tuning is a bit complicated. It would be nice if Bluetooth was already installed instead of the $200 add on.
Summary: I have two of these decks and they are awesome! I have never had such a deck that puts out the quality of sound the Dex-P99rs does. great sound, great enhancement to my ipod and sounds even better with a CD.
Pros: Competition radio for sure!
Cons: Took me a while to fully understand the full potential this deck has to offer. But other than the patients of studing the manuel it's worth every penny!
Summary: Pure joy...If you are serious about music, you NEED to get this deck. Upgraded from the DEX-880PRS, there is a HUGE difference. SQ from this deck is simply amazing. I don't want to leave the car, I sometimes will just sit in the car after getting home just to bask in the amazing sound this deck...
Summary: Fantastic ! I installed the ultimate STAGE 4 system, for about $7,000+ and it sounds like it was worth every penny. I can hear music the way it was meant to be heard , the way engineers recorded it. I combined the Head unit with Pioneer stage 4 amps & speakers and they sound amazing.
Pros: TA - time alignment . Auto Equalization . Control over the configuration of all the crossovers & slopes from the head unit is great Control of 4 seperate preamp outs is great for fine tuning the system.
Summary: To be the owner of one of these Head Units, i am extremely proud, i cannot think of another Product in recent time that i have spent so much of my time with, my commute to work , even in extreme traffic jam on I-95 in Miami is heavenly, prior to purchasing this unit, i decided to invest in high...
Pros: Sound quality, Built Quality, Tuning Capabilities, Remote control Etc.
