Unit is very reliable - many users report years of consistent performance with significantly less problems than competitors from Alpine and Pioneer

1 agrees

Remote control peripheral is safe and intuitive - minimalist design increases safety, especially when accessing the unit while driving

Menu layout is excellent - folders are clearly labeled and easy to navigate in and out of

1 agrees

Tilting design is an excellent, function feature - reduces unit stress and promotes visibility during daylight hours

1 agrees

5-volt preamp outputs ensure top-quality audio reproduction - music is preserved without any negative "coloring" as sometimes experienced with lower-level units

Surround sound processing modes are fantastic - "Wow", "Focus" and "Truebass" modes offer pre-configured EQs for a variety of music types
