Pioneer DEH-4400HD

Radio's not the only thing that'll sound better
It's no stretch to say that the sound of Pioneer receivers is legendary. This receiver's conservatively rated MOSFET amplifier uses special transistors to ensure strong full-range output that stands with any car stereo on the market — you'll hear solid lows and crisp highs from all your music sources. And you'll like the flexibility that the 3-band equalizer offers for dialing in just the right sound for your car and your taste.

More music choices
If you don't listen to the radio all the time, you'll appreciate the range of options this receiver offers. Plug an iPod® or iPhone® into the front-panel USB input and you'll be able to use your receiver's controls to zip through your songs and playlists. With a 1-amp output, the USB port will keep your device fully charged even through periods of heavy usage.

You'll also find an auxiliary input, so you can plug in Dock & Play satellite radios, game consoles, and other devices. And, if you like CDs, this stereo will handle all your CDs, as well as discs or thumb drives you've loaded with MP3 and WMA files.

Want to keep your steering wheel coan adapter (not included)  ntrols?
In most vehicles you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Pioneer stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the Pioneer, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.

Note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver or its optional iPod adapter.

    Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls.

    This is hard to use. If I want to play my mp3's by gender, I better pull over to do it safely. Takes too much concentration to do while driving. Speakers that were matched to play with this clip at 1/2 volume. CD player skips over railroad tracks, old Pioneer didn't.

    Pros: Easy to install.

    Cons: Purchased with (4) MTX TN502 5.25" Coaxial Speakers (5-35W). They start to clip at 1/2 volume. CD player skips. Hard to use.

    I really like this radio. The color change feature is why i bought this radio because i wanted to match it to my gauges. Sounds good and it is of fairly decent quality.

    Pros: Good quality. Fairly easy to use.

    Cons: USB plug in play is a pain to use thru the radio interface.

    Pretty good so far

    I got this radio from an online auction site after researching it on this site. The variable colors are a plus. Turning the volume past 37 is a big change! I got it professionally installed yesterday. It fits, but there is a minor gap in the trim below the air vents. I had wondered if it would support the separate tweeters looking at the wires; I seem to have lost the driver's side in the process. As a bass-appreciator, it is not as "punchy" as the factory's. I am planning on replacing the old speakers at some point. I figured out the controls within 5 minutes, the return button is my friend. I really like the multiple input options: aux for Sirius and USB for thumb/iPhone 5. The HD radio does cut out unexpectedly, but I can't wait to use it when I travel again. The Matrix-like display is very nice and the removable face comes out with my Sirius radio.

    Pros: The display is very nice with the customizable colors. Input options keep me from dependence on a FM transmitter.

    Cons: Not a perfect fit compared to factory's.

    Pros: good features display can match anything (orange for me) my door still closes (this is low-profile)

    Pros: great price, ability to match factory light color, easy to search through ipod.

    Cons: would like to have USB on back of deck for more low profile look. Also be nice to have adjustable crossovers, but for the price...

    It has TONS of features and they aren't that hard to figure out once you get moving around the menus. Slow getting started setting it up because it's not as user friendly as I have had in the past but it has WAY more features! Love the changing display/button colors! Love the USB that charges in the front! Love being able to operate my iphone and ipod from the stereo and being able to search artists, playlists, songs, etc. from the stereo.

    Pros: TONS of features and sooo cool!!

    Cons: Tough to setup at first.

    Great head unit at a great price. Its hard to believe the you can get that much radio for that low of a price.

    Pros: Very cool color changing display. USB and aux jack in the front are very convenient. And its a Pioneer.

    Cons: Takes a couple minutes to figure out how to use all the controls and functions. (only because it has so many options)

    It's definitely worth the money, but it was a bit difficult to figure out how to use it. I can usually figure out the controls/settings right away by just playing with it. With this unit I actually had to read the manual.

    The sound is really good. I can hear instrumental parts I couldn't hear before. But after two emails to Pioneer and one call to Crutchfield, both companies being quite helpful, I've learned how to change or adjust or use it, but I'm still figuring out how to find where things are in the FM bands, for example, this despite spending hours trying to figure it out. Also, the display is usually too dim to be seen in sunlight. I like the way the unit sounds, but it is hard to learn.

    Pros: Good sound quality. Wonderful bass. Versatile ability to switch to using rear speakers as the subwoofer. Good support from Crutchfield and from Pioneer.

    Cons: Volume knob doesn't always adjust the volume. Display is hard or impossible to see. Controls are not intuitive.

    The DEH 4400 was better than the Sony CDX-GT700HD at picking up HD signals even though the sony had a lower dbf. Non HD FM was better on the Sony. However, the DEH 4400 did drop the HD frequently so I returned it for a Kenwood KDC-HD455U which picked up HD a little better than the Pioneer but held the signals much better so much less fade outs which becomes irritating. Liked it so much that I bought a 2nd one as backup. Also pioneer did not play ipod tunes copied to a usb drive whereas the KW did. My main concern was FM reception and it met my expectations.

    Pros: Many display colors, front USB, plays ipod tunes on usb drive, price

    Cons: none

    I think the sound quality is excellent, but the radio preset buttons are hard to get to, the volume knob is recessed too far, and the digital read-out is hard to read in the daylight.

    This is the second 4400HD I have installed in my cars. User interface is the only thing left lacking. I was nervous about things I read about HD. Heard it would be irritating fading in and out on HD, but when it happens, the sound quality goes from great to normal. Do like the sound on HD channels I get. HD AM is very good

    Pros: Easy to install, Nice Unit

    Cons: User interface is a bit different, but now that I have two, I have it figured out

    This is an inexpensive Receiver/player and it does exactly what it says it will do. If you want a thumpin' system this isn't it. I had no trouble using my iphone 5 in it, the CD player works great, the radio pulls in stations as well, but not better than the stock receiver. The big problem with this unit is that the user interface is not intuitive at all andI had to spend 45 minutes on the phone w/ Crutchfield Tech support (They were great) just to figure it out. The problem is that sometimes you use the MFC (multi-function control) to change between options, select options, and choose the option. But sometimes you use the left-right arrows to do that and sometimes you press the MFC. It seems that there is no rhyme nor reason to when you which control. I use computers, iphones, ipads, high end audio applications and have rarely had to call tech support. So to me if I can't figure out a radio in just a few minutes, it is not well designed.

    Pros: Solid value for the price. It was easy to install and the kits Crutchfield sells to make it look professionally installed were perfect (though the directions that came with them were useless) I had to figure out all the hard questions without the help.

    Cons: user interface is inconsistent and confusing. The "flames" that the display shows in attempt to be cool aren't. User manual is not helpful. It is full of information you don't need and missing most of what you do. It should have menu flowcharts!!!!

    This thing is great! Installed in less than an hour. Had one question about the wiring- called a tech at Crutchfield and he led me straight. Really impressed with the HD radio. Like many new tech toys of today, can't figure how I lived without for so long. The programming was not as bad as others have suggested. Read the manual folks. Follow the directions. It's not rocket science.

    Pros: Ease of installation. Crutchfield's got your back if you need it. Like the face and the fact that the clock stays on even when not in use.

    Cons: Might have to get another one in my other vehicle now that this one has spoiled me!

    Love this radio! Great product for the price. Sounds great listening to AM HD and FM HD. MP3 files on CDs are really nice too. I was looking for a system to upgrade the factory system in my '11 Dodge Dakota, but didn't want to spend a mint. Even with the factory speakers, this one was the best solution for me. I haven't owned a Pioneer since the Super Tuner 2 8-Track I had in my '76 Camaro. So I'd forgotten how good Pioneer products sound. Menus are a little tricky, so it's necessary to keep the manual nearby when setting it up. Gonna take a little time to get used to some of the button functions.

    Pros: Great sound. Easy installation. Seems well made.

    Cons: Knocked it down one star in the "Ease of Use" category due to the leaning curve with the menus.

    OEM tape deck/receiver right channel went out after 20 years. Looking through CD/Receivers, I chose the DEH-4400HD because it provided the color choices for display and button, esp. red for night driving. Display is bright even when dimmed - brighter than the OEM lights on the dash. NOISE: No ignition or wiper motor noise at all. SOUND: Fr: 6.5 coax Memphis 15-PRC62, Rr: 6.75 coax JL Audio TR-650CXi (was Sony XS-6026, no difference in sound when compared to the JLs) HU provides VERY clear mid & highs. Plenty of clean power without an amp, but.. (1) I have to increase volume from 10-14 to 22-28 on the freeway. That's two to three turns with the knob. (2) Road noise kills the bass. (3) Loudness 1 or 2 is too much (IMO) at volume settings higher than 12. It adds too much mid-range. EQ adjustments are needed with loudness on. Crutchfield advisor recommended a compact sub woofer to slip under the seat, but I think for all that cabling I'll just add an Alpine KTP445U, which should fix the lack of gain in the volume control. INSTALL: 92 Saturn SL2 has a plastic rear support with a square hole for OEM radio chassis post. Drill 1/4" holes across at that line and punch out the rear to clear the way. HU is 1/16th shy of touching duct work. Install kit requires cutting some extra tabs from bracket and trimplate which is difficult with just a sharp knife. MENUS: Practice, practice... Station memory is easy to set, or use the scan feature. Compact flash menus are intuitive.

    Pros: Very pleased coming from the OEM world of 20 years ago. Feature filled for the price. Good sound clarity with no detectable electrical noise. Fully adjustable display and button colors which are bright. With practice, menu navigation proficiency comes quickly.

    Cons: Nothing specific to this HU, when compared to the HU class it falls in. For SL2's, you may consider adding a SW or an amp or both. I'll review the Alpine KTP-445U afterwards to see if it makes a difference in the bass within the full-range speaker environment and also for volume gain.

    Overall I love this radio. It has all of the features that I was looking for at a reasonable price. The operation does take a little garage time as others have mentioned and the demo mode is very annoying. I thought that I had it turned off, but drove around all day with changing colors, messages, blinking wavy lines etc. That night, I went back into the manual and found the instructions to make sure that the demo was turned off - stupid feature. Please include the manual if you sell your vehicle for the poor soul that would try to operate without it. The USB connection is probably my favorite followed by the HD radio. I loaded tons of songs on a flash drive and the unit shows all information just like an iPod. The HD radio is nice because Atlanta radio has very little good rock stations so at least I have a few other options to listen to including comedy and other classic rock stations. The color display selection is very nice and allowed me to match the OEM digital display of the climate control system for a factory look.

    Pros: Great features: USB, HD Radio, Aux connection, CD Good power and nice display color selections

    Cons: REALLY need the manual to learn how to operate.

    Installation was really simple. I was referred to Crutchfield by a couple friends and also read the best reviews from the website. Just finished up installation tonight on the radio itself. If there is one thing I love it's a friendly professional company and Crutchfield has exceeded with this. Their tech support is amazing. I had a few issues that were resolved on the phone. I wasn't planning on tearing back into the project and fixing it then as I have a cold and losing my voice, but the rep ALAN made me feel confident enough in the amount of time it would take and I got it done in no time. I am very pleased with this radio, it has every function I need and then some for anything I want to add on later. I am pairing it with three way Pioneer speakers in the front. I can't say enough how simple it was to do and how much I love Crutchfield. I will always buy and install with them from here on out. This company has earned my business for a lifetime. I had some doubts in the beginning but once I saw the ticket price at car toys I knew I could do it for a lot cheaper in my own truck and get enjoyment and satisfaction in doing it myself, and I'm glad I did. If I had any bumps along the way it wasn't anything I couldn't get resolved quickly with Crutchfield. Again, the tech support is truly outstanding and I would recommend them to anyone, young or old.

    I replaced my factory radio in my Pontiac Vibe with this about a month ago. It has better sound with more adjustability and neat display but the menu leaves much to be desired. Instructions require lots of reading between the lines, not straight forward at all and settings depend a lot on menu start conditions. Takes A LOT of 'garage/parked' time figuring it out; messing with it while driving is equivalent to texting with a Crackberry! Worse, it's so easy to lose settings! I've already 'hit the wrong key' twice and had to reprogram ALL the settings! Save the manual, you'll need it! In fact, go to the Pioneer website and download it PDF for a back-up. I really wish it had a simple ON/OFF switch; instead, you have to press & hold the SRC button every time I start the car to shut it OFF because it always comes ON automatically. Took me almost 9 hours to install, by the time I managed to deal with all the 'little details' the instructions gloss over. While testing it outside of dash, noticed the underside felt quite warm; given the disposable quality corporate philosophy these days, I hope it lasts! AM is now weaker with more static than before, forget distant stations. However, it's a small loss given the other gains. Probably the antenna cable adapter you have to install has something to do with it. Main reason I got this is because it has CD, HD radio, USB & AUX inputs with great sound. At that, it does very well...as long as I don't upset the settings accidentally.

    Pros: Great, very adjustable sound. Cool display Many source inputs: CD, HD radio, USB, AUX, AM/FM. Good value for price

    Cons: Too complicated a menu, easy to loose settings.

    Sounds very good! Yes I know that as a low-middle of the road it's not going to sound like a $700 reciever and since I was pairing it with new Pioneer speakers (6.5") , it's never going to sound like a audiophile home system. It' going in a 16 year old Jeep, and even with these speakers, the doors shake. It sounds 10 times better than the Infinity system with paper cone speakers.......It could be easier to operate but for the money, it can't be touched...

    Pros: Great sound, looks good and you can match the colors to your dash.

    Cons: could be easier to operate...

    Bought this to replace another Pioneer that died after 5 years of se4rvice. Hope this one will last longer. The sound is nice and I think it was worth the asking price. As for ease of use.... in today's world of computing and what have you, why can't they make it more simple to program this thing?!!! I am still playing with this and eventually I will learn all of the ins and outs. The manual could have been better written.

    The kit I had to send back because I didn't need it. I used the harness from previous install and it worked fine. When I initially looked at this radio the Crutchfield site said it wouldn't fit. But it did. Easily.

    I don't really care for all that "coolness" because I don't mess with settings while driving. "Cause I may never reach my destination if I do.

    Pros: Nice sound and HD is nice to have, if it comes with it. It wasn't a deciding factor.

    Cons: Manual and setup could be much better, easier to read and do.

    I was replacing an off-brand receiver/CD in my Jeep that had stopped working & picked up the DEH-4400HD for this purpose. Though the wiring diagrams weren't too clear, I sorted out the wiring by color coding & installed the unit in 2 hours. It worked completely as advertised; the remote was a plus, as was the ability to customize display color & the added auxiliary front panel inputs. The audio adjustments were somewhat limited (equalizer), but otherwise I was completely satisfied.

    Pros: Installation neat, many features for the money, good sound, remote a plus

    Cons: Instructions somewhat vague, may need electronic experience to install. Limited equalizer settings, may need intermediate equalizer for fine tuning of music ranges.

    My 12 year old car finally needed a decent upgrade, stereo-wise. I ultimately chose this one. I don't regret the choice. It makes music sound way better on the stock speakers, though by level 50, distortion starts to be noticeable, but I blame the speakers for that. I love the iPod control and that you can scan through playlists using the stereo. My one gripe is that it has three banks of FM channel presets (FM 1, 2, & 3), and only one can be used to switch to the alternate HD channel. Speaking of which, I bought this stereo with the hope of listening to all sorts of alternate HD channels, only to find out very few provide such programming. So I'm bummed about that. My only other gripe is on Crutchfield. When I got the package I discovered that I needed either a soldering iron or wire caps to do the work. It would be nice if some instructions would be given on the site of what I will need to have to do the work. Us novices, who have never done this kind of work would appreciate it.

    I was looking for a good basic upgrade to my factory stereo and didn't want to spend a ton of money. I think that is the case with many shoppers looking at this price point. The Pioneer DEH-4400HD had some great features for the money, and as silly as it sounds, it's nice to have a remote for quick tuning and skip features. Upgrading to the HD Radio is also a bonus. I don't typically listen to a bunch of radio stations, but I do listen a bit more now that a few are offered in HD format. You really can tell the difference in the sound quality. The USB/iPod feature is a nice addition too.it's easy to just load up a USB memory drive with music, plug it in and within seconds you can shuffle through hundreds of songs. If you prefer more control to playlists, you can use your iPod and also control it pretty easily with this radio. All in all.it's a great upgrade and well worth the investment. This was my first radio installation and the included instructions were fairly simple to follow, but I did have to look up some videos on YouTube to gain a better understanding of how the dash panel and connections came off. Only feedback might be to have a little more detail in the step by step instructions and a few more pictures for us beginners. But hey, I'm one of those guys that hates to call customer service for help!

    Pros: Great value, good price point for an upgrade from stock radio. Great sound quality is a major upgrade vs. stock radio too. Front panel USB and AUX inputs are great, as is the remote. HD radio function provides a major sound improvement - even for AM talk radio.

    Cons: Display is sometimes difficult to read in daylight.

    Three teenage boys attached the wiring harness to the stereo at my dining room table one evening, in about a half hour. They installed the receiver in the dash of the pickup in about 10 minutes (the old radio had already been removed by the truck's previous owner.) This stereo looks awesome, with lots of color combinations to choose from. For the money the sound is good, and the remote works great.

    Pros: Looks great, reasonably priced, sounds good.

    Typical Pioneer quality product with plenty of features and good sound. Display is difficult to read in sunlight and the set-up instructions are a bit vague. Overall very pleased with this unit though.

    I purchased this radio to replace a rapidly failing factory stereo. I wanted a radio that could receive HD radio and had a variety of color options. The musical quality I expected was that it would be average, but it has surpassed my expectations. It has several customizable options that can tweak the sound to the average listener's liking and while not super-high end, it is a good stereo and seems to be built to last.

    Can't say enough about the quality of the technical support I received and the professionalism of the people I spoke to on the phone. I called twice: first, just to verify my order - it was nice to know that I had everything I'd need for my little weekend project. The second was because I had an issue after my installation - the tuner reception was extremely poor. The tech listened to my issue and immediately told me what I needed to do (installation instructions led me to believe that I didn't need to connect the power antenna / power amp wire for my application - but I did as this powers the antenna amp in my case - something the tech was able to tell me right away). Excellent customer experience. Order shipped promptly, arrived on time, and there was plenty of communication on the status of my shipment.

    Pros: Outstanding value in sound quality considering price. Good upgrade vs. stock radio. Front panel USB and AUX inputs are a huge modernization for my old 2001 Honda S2000. Reads MP3 files on my Android phone without issue. HD radio function provides a major sound improvement - even for AM talk radio. RDS is nice extra.

    Cons: Only 3 equalizer bands. Display difficult to see in bright sunlight due to glossy cover over display panel & lack of brightness of display - display is fine in all other conditions. Those looking for outstanding sound quality should look elsewhere - this unit is more about delivering good sound at a value price.

    Can't go wrong with Pioneer!

    I recently purchased this setup to replace my 2001 Mazda 626 factory stereo. My purchase came with all the tools needed for installation (DIN tools, adaptors, wires, manuals, etc.) My dad and I had it hooked up in a few hours (took so long because we had a hard time taking the old stereo out!) It makes my factory speakers (also Pioneer brand) sound 10x better. The manual is pretty easy to follow when looking up the settings for all the functions. The only two hiccups I've had with this system so far is that the M.C. knob is pretty touchy; it takes quite a few turns to turn the volume up or down. I wouldn't even mess with the knob when adjusting the volume, just use the remote - it's so much easier! And the other slight issue is the Clock Set feature is kinda hard to figure out. I had to whip out the manual three or four times just to remind me of what exactly I had to do. I haven't used the iPod aux/USB plugins yet.

    Other than that, it's a very stylish, functional stereo. The colors are fun to play with - I just have mine set on SCAN and it goes through all 30 color combinations! You can have fun with this function for hours (maybe...) Pioneer has always been good to me and this did not disappoint.

    Pros: Color feature for the buttons and display, installation, remote controlled, HD radio compatible, plugin for iPod, attractive setup, beefs up sound quality of factory speakers

    Cons: Touchy M.C. knob, hard time figuring out CLOCK SET and turning DEMO mode off

    Awesome Receiver/ CD Player; replaced OEM radio/tape player when it went bad in my '95 Mustang GT. Love the RDS & HD. Color display & keys match my factory dash. Other than it sometimes cuts out when switching between analog FM & HD and back again, it been fantastic; I love it, very cool!

    Pros: RDS, HD, fairly easy install

    Cons: Sometimes cuts out when switching between analog FM & HD and back again

    I won't drone on about all of the features of this unit. Suffice to say that all of the features function as expected. However, I have to agree with some of the other reviewers that the display is very difficult to see during the daylight hours. Also, if you're wearing glasses with polarized lenses, forget it. You'll never be able to see the display. Other than that inconvenience, this unit is impressive feature-wise and performance-wise for the money. I am definitely pleased with this purchase.

    Pros: Great features, such as the variable key and display color options, iPod connection and control, tone-shaping, and RDS.

    Cons: Display is difficult to see in sunlight and/or with polarized lenses.

    Good product for price!

    I bought this unit as a replacement for a nine year old Clarion DXZ635MP that I could no longer play a cd on. When I saw the price of the Pioneer and the features, I was suprised about how much I could get for my money. The installion did not seem to take long and it was fully compatable with my speakers so I didn't have to replace any of the speakers that I put in the car. It is pretty easy to use and it has many functions. The usb port is nice because you can get flash drives very cheap and you could load up tons of great music on them. I have found it very easy to scroll through folders and files on the flash drive in order to get what I want. The radio was very easy to program and I like the HD radio on it. As soon as I turned the HD Seek to the on setting, I was getting more radio stations than I ever was able ot get before. The biggest knock that I read on this unit was that it is hard to see in daylight but a lot of radios are like that. I did notcie that if I have my ray ban sunglasses on, then it gets harder to see the display but if i take them off, then I can see the display okay even in sunlight. Overall it is a nice radio for the price. I do not think it has as much power as my old Clarion since i have to put the volume up higher than I did on my old radio but the sound quality is good. If this last as long as my Clarion (nine years), I will be happy with the pioneer. As of right now, i would recommend this unit to a friend.

    Pros: The main pro is the HD radio as it gives you more radio stations to listen to so if some have commericals, there are others that will be playing some music. Another pro is the USb port on the front. I guess that if the cd drive ever were to break, I can still load up a 16 or 32gb flash and still hear all of my rock and roll! The other pro is that there was almost no learning time with this and that was something I was nervous about. This is a very easy systme to use and rock out to!

    Cons: The only con that I am finding is that it is not as loud as i thought it would be. I seem to have to keep the volume in the upper twenties to hear it good when I am driving as opposed to my old Clarion DXZ635MP that i could put the volume on 15 or 16 and have it blasting while I drive. The only other potential con that I have noticed is that when I take out my USB drive, the unit shuts off instead of going back to the radio. However touching the power button brings it back to radio.

    Great unit for the price!

    I have only had this unit for a couple of weeks now but I think I have a good idea of how I feel about it. First of all it is a great unit for the price and features included. Price was a big consideration as was HD Radio. I never had HD radio before but I will tell you now that I have heard it, there is a BIG difference compared to analog radio. I looked at a lot of stereos and none of them had everything I wanted so any choice was a compromise. I chose this unit because it had most everything I wanted, included built in HD radio and with a great price. I would highly recommend this unit for a low price choice with great features.

    Pros: Variable colors (requirement) Variable loudness (desired) HD Radio (requirement) Radio Data System functions (requirement) USB connectivity (requirement) Preset radio station buttons (requirement) iPod control by unit or iPod (desired) Pre-out for front and rear amps (requirement) Good FM Sensitivity (requirement) Scrolling display (desired) Great sound power and clarity (requirement)

    Cons: Only 3 band equalizer (really wanted 5 or more) No auto dimmer connection (really wanted, didn't know it was missing until after purchase) No rear USB (desired) Only displays info or clock, not both (really wanted, didn't know it was missing until after purchase) Display color doesn't quite match button color (Oh well)

    I purchased this receiver along with a set of 4 x 6 Pioneer TS-A4674R three ways to replace my OEM dash speakers and a pair of 6.5 Pioneer TS-D1602R 2 ways to replace the OEM door speakers in a 97 Sonoma SLE ext cab. I finished the system off with and 400 Watt 4 CH amp wired in with an amp kit and believe me, for a modestly priced middle of the road car audio system, it kicks butt!

    The sound is unbelievable; just what you would expect from Pioneer. No subwoofer, to old for that boom, boom crap. I purchased the receiver, speaker mounting adapters for the doors, adapters for the OEM speaker harnesses and receiver harness and the dash kit from Crutchfield and picked up the speakers for half price along with the amp.

    I have $300 and change in the system and as I stated, kicks butt!

    Pros: Good looks and easy to use.

    Cons: None for me but hey, I 'm easy to please....

    Good receiver

    I agree it's a great sounding Receiver, and love the HD radio. I have no problems with reception. Stations come in real clear. It replaced my factory 6-cd in dash changer in my 02' escape. Sound is real good even with the factory speakers. Mounting kit and Instructions, and wiring harness Crutchfield provided were excellent and very easy to understand. I have to get used to the menus and features. If I had any minor issue it would be that the Tone Control be a little easier to get to in the menu. But like I said, I'm still in the learning stage and just have to mess with it a little more. But really once the Tone control is set, I don't have the need to really mess with it cause every radio station and MP3 and CD comes in clear and consistant. I guess most radio stations broadcast in HD now and it's kinda cool cause I tune in a station, and 2 seconds later the display says something like "97.9 HD", cause it's a HD station, and it comes in real clear and has a nice CD Quality sound. I already had someone get in the car and ask me "is that a CD" when a song was playing. Radio sound is that good.
