An inexpensive shaft style stereo that plays mp3 files & iPod - Great!

enviroguy, Ebay
2 October 2012
  • Summary: If you want an inexpensive shaft style digital-tuning stereo that plays mp3 files and can play directly from an iPod, this is it. Other shaft style models that do this cost a lot more. Pyle quit making these about a year ago and they are very hard to find. I bought two but only ended up needing one. These receivers came in a plain brown box, sealed in plastic and appeared to come straight from Pyle with all hardware and faceplate. The one I installed sounds great.

Can't beat the price - does what it's supposed to

  • Summary: I bought this to throw in the old truck we use for hauling stuff to the dump. If you want something that is 'quality' you are going to need to spend more that $35. Read the other reviews that list the pros and cons. This radio has no presets nothing fancy just plays music off a USB flashdrive. I had no problems with installation or display.

  • Summary: Great Fit for classic cars with double DIN mounts. Not a high end unit of course, but at such a low price you can't pass it up.

Good for an old car

R. Dudley, Amazon
19 February 2011
  • Summary: I'm one of those people who will not cut a dash on an old car. I have a 1974 Volkswagen Super Beetle that came to me with an old bad Kenwood. I pulled it and replaced it with this unit in about 10 mins... it was $35. works great. so sad to see there not available anymore, or I would buy a few for other old cars I may get in the future.

  • Summary: Do not buy...I spent hours installing just to have a blank face - it worked - all the buttons worked but there was no LCD display - it lit up - but no numbers, etc. Sound was so so...it just isn't worth it.

cheap price cheap product

  • Summary: I guess it works, but the digital read out stop working a week after i got it so you dont know what station you are on , you just have to guess. the USB/SD feature works and is what I use most of the time. It also seems weak on picking up stations sometimes. But you get what you payfor.

Steer Clear!

ChrisM, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this radio because it had USB and Aux inputs. After installing it, I found that the display did not work. I contacted the seller and arranged for a replacement. After installing the replacement, the display did work - - - for about 5 minutes. Since the head-unit only cost $50, and it cost about $20 to ship it back, I decided to keep the second defective unit and fly blind.

A pretty good stereo for your old vehicle

Gary Shaw, Amazon
1 November 2010
  • Summary: I bought this model because of the shaft style volume and tuning. It fit in my old 1984 model Ford truck easily. I previously was using an FM modulator with MP3's on a SD card. The SD slot doesn't make contact with the card sometimes, and I had to slip a small strip of thick paper over it to make better contact. I installed a left angle USB extension cord from the Pyle, through the tuning shaft slot and dash into the glove box for a hidden flash drive.

It's alright...but it broke..

derpderp, Amazon
19 September 2010
  • Summary: Pretty much the other reviews have said everything I would..I would like to see a few more features. Kinda sucks that the shaft style market is so small anymore. It's either buy this for 30 bucks or drop $200+ for something with all the bells and whistles plus more. *edit* I am editing this to 1 star as I've only had it for 1 week and one of the RCA outputs was found to not be working. As well as one of the speaker outputs stopped working.
