It's so good I bought 2 of them.

ForrestD, Crutchfield
4 August 2015
  • Summary: I bought my first DEX-P99RS used from a giant online auction site last year. It was to spend it's life in a garage-queen SQ car that I occasionally show. I run a 2-way active Focal KRX2 set up-front in that car with Rockford Fosgate T1692 6x9's in the rear. I have 2 x JL Audio 13w6v2's for subs.
  • Pros: Left & Right 31 band EQ's. Full Time Alignment (all 8 channels). Good AutoEQ results. Good AutoTA function. Great CD mechanism. Great iPod interface. Highly customizeable (display, colors, sound, etc). Very classy design.
  • Cons: It's more expensive than a decent double din + external DSP. You can get a similar experience in AutoEQ and AutoTA with one of Pioneer's lower line double din units (AVH-X1700 - AVH-X5700BHS units). I had an AVH-X5700BHS prior.

Spend the money!

Drew, Crutchfield
23 July 2015
  • Summary: I've been building systems since 1988 and this deck is the best I've ever owned! I started out looking for an 8 channel crossover to go with a new head unit when I came across this one.
  • Pros: 31 channels to tweak the way different genres of music sound. Audio setting that shapes sound for just the people in the front seats. Removable head unit for security.
  • Cons: Doesn't have Bluetooth. Learning curve for tweaking.

best deck ever

lew, Crutchfield
1 April 2015
  • Summary: this deck is by far the best deck i ever used . it takes a while to figure out the set up areas but customer service is a big help . this replaced my eclipse 8053 and it made my old deck seem lke it was a factory head unit .
  • Pros: best deck ever , one crossovers were set the cds took on a new life even before setting the eq and time delay
  • Cons: set up takes a learning curve and remote is hard to use if you have large hands . price

Pioneer Stage 4 Head Unit

John, Crutchfield
18 March 2015
  • Summary: It's getting harder to find pre amp only head units these day. That's what brought me to the Pioneer. I was impressed with the build quality and the sound quality was top shelf. You get a ton of customizable settings.
  • Pros: Sound quality Solid construction Plenty of custom settings and flexibility
  • Cons: It would be nice if the head unit had a digital input and balanced line outputs.

The best since my old Sony CDX-C90 ES from 1999

Shanes, Crutchfield
26 November 2014
  • Summary: I thought the last 10 + years of of high end head units were pretty much a lost cause since everything has become tailored for iPod quality sound, which as we know isn't nearly as good as complacent disc. This prs 99 is an outstanding piece of engineering and for me to say that means a lot.
  • Pros: Old school quality with faculty for modern day tech like iPhones and such.
  • Cons: Would like it to be able to play high resolution audio such as FLAC or ALAC 24/192 kHz files burned to a dvd or play sacd discs.

  • Pros: It can provide the best sound out there. Or it can take and break your spirit.
  • Cons: Patience, Time and money.
