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.
If you are serious about QUALITY sound ............

Summary: This is THE BEST car receiver I have EVER owned!! It is a tuner and 31 Band equalizer in ONE!! My speakers literally came to life when I installed this unit. Simplest install ever, but HIGHLY involved in setting up. The setup is definitely not a discouraging point though.
Pros: Super easy installation; backup battery in case of power loss; beautiful display; classy and professional appearance; steering wheel remote control; auto tuning feature; the list goes on and on!!
Cons: Setup is not the easiest, but it can be accomplished with reading the manual and doing research on what sounds the frequency bands produce
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: 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 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: 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.
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: Expensive but well worth the money. Once I got my system tuned all I can say is... WOW I am impressed to say the least. There is definately a learning curve in getting in and out of menus but after a few days you'll be able to change your setting with ease.
Pros: Clean pure sound with the versatility to tune your stereo exactly how you want to.
Cons: Price, but hey you're paying for the best in the market.
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: 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...
