Good for the price
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I like this unit alot. I have a Volkswagen Passat, and it was difficult finding a unit to match the dash illumination. That was the first thing that caught my attention.<BR><BR>The ergonomics of the unit are excellent. It is easy to adjust and make selections while driving, and to learn the units operation. <BR><BR>The supplied remote is more than sufficient and provides access to almost every fucntion of the unit.<BR><BR>CD playback is superb. And it is a joy to be able to playback my MP3 library on CD. I can create mixes that playback flawlessy on this unit. The only downside I've found is no playlist support. It plays back the the files in alphabetical order. It would have been nice to be able to specify some type of playback order for the files.<BR><BR>Sound quality is the units weakest point. After owning several high-end units, this just can't compete. Sound is not bad, it's just not as good as I am used to. For the price, it's acceptable. The SQ presets are really horrid. I found them completely unusable. I think the addition of an extrenal EQ might solve some of the sound issues. Volume is more than adaequate, but the unit has some distortion issues at higher volumes.<BR><BR>The other problem I have with this unit is it's lack of a sub output. Of course that is to be expected from a unit in this price range.<BR><BR>Overall this is a great unit for the price.
