Rated 5 out of 5 by willbrokken Really nice unit.
Good quality big bang for your buck. Lowest cost radio with high voltage preamp outputs. Legendary Sony quality. The previous review is wrong. I'm an certified installation technician and the consumer is using the 3.5mm steering wheel control input instead of the 3.5mm microphone input. User, or shall we say installer error. Simple mistake and the same thing happens to any radio that has the same steering wheel control input and the microphone is inserted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SimFord Great head unit.
Felt I needed to write yet another review to help offset people writing negative reviews due to their own error. This unit is fast, feature packed and quite simply works. Sound quality is quite good and the pre amp does what it claims and more. The App Remote feature is pretty cool and I find myself using it all the time. (Have Android so no wires needed.) The voice control option with this app also works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DjABCraver Affordable and Powerful with Superb sound quality
This unit has made the sound quality and volume of my factory speakers a good 25% better! I Iove how much you can customize the EQ and Subwoofer settings.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hakaboy Hands free microphone does not work
it was installed just fine, but when I plug in the supplied microphone the whole thing freezes up and does not work. The moment you unplug the microphone it goes back to working. Can't get any help from Sony because you get someone in the Philippines who can't speak English very well. Waste of money paying for the extra with the mic plugin the rear. this is the second unit from Sony. It also happened on the first one the week before. By plugging the microphone in to the unit it seem to freeze everything on the stereo and does not pick up any sound. I even tried it with another mic i purchased. So now you can't use hands free at all. Big waste of money.
