I purchased this unit to replace another blown head unit. I would never buy a HU without HD radio because it's free digital radio and the sound quality is well worth it.
PROS: The HD on this unit works pretty well. It cuts in and out some times, but my last unit did too. I feel it's the characteristics of HD radio. The other features of this unit are all good including the 5 band equalizer, and the control of the sub woofer. It give you many adjustments over your music including high and low-pass crossovers, and enables you to fine-tune the sound quality. Being able to change the display colors to match your interior is pretty cool too.
CONS: Mixtrax, I don't know if it's supposed to do some of the things it does, but when the Mixtrax is enabled and while listening to a usb source device, it never played the entire song, and toward the end of the song it faded the song out with some weird tones. The lights flashing is distracting at night, and I'm sure this is marketed toward the younger generation. The lighting is also very bright, it does have a dimmer, but it doesn't dim very much.
Overall, I think it's a little too much money for what you get, but a solid stereo unit. I'm only giving it 3 stars (would get 4 if not for this) because It needs to be returned. When adjusting the EQ at the 80Hz and 250Mhz levels, the sound wil all of the sudden kick-in very loud as if the volume is being turned up fully all at once. The first few times I didn't know it was going to do this and it caused my brand new very expensive amp to go into protection mode. That should absolutely not happen and if a fairly cheap HU blows my very expensive amp, I will be very upset; therefore, this unit will be going back. I've already purchased the deh-x9500bhs as a replacement.
Very easy to install with the metra wire harness and metra in-dash installation kit. However, with this particular head unit, the antenna did not work. The solder conection for the antenna inside the unit appeared to have come loose. Radio only works on one station. Until I return it, I will listen to Pandora Radio on my Iphone or listen to cds. The multi color screen feature is nice because you can change the screen color and the key color to plethora of color combinations. I will be returning it for a replacement as I look forward to using the HD radio.
