Deserves a longer review 03/24/2013
This review is from: New Pioneer Deh80prs Cd Mp3car Audio Receiver Aux Bluetooth Usb Deh-80Prs
I had the predecessor to this deck. It was stolen, and now I run one of these. It is just as good in many respects, although the build materials seem to be cheaper, it still performs and has more functions than my older deck.
The back USBs alone make this a smart purchase. I have a USB3 thumb drive with 64gigs on one of them, and it's the easiest thing to play anything I want.
Price is reasonable for something of this usefulness. I use the onboard amp in network mode and it sounds and works spectacular.
Faceplate scratches easily. In a Chevy Metro, a bad selection of DIN install kits combined with the deep face of this deck means it cannot fully open. I could still get a CD in, but I am all digital anyway.
SD card placement is a bit funny, and using an adadpter with a miniSD card doesn't always work well. Bass or potholes can vibrate the card and cause the deck to reset as if you just selected the SD source.
So mostly I use the usb connecter, and it doesn't leave me wanting.
Volume control does indeed take a long time to scroll up or down. Remote works well enough as you can hit ATT to mute, but it would be better to have a second selection mode for volume control, or just less range in the first place. Some people probably sit there and compete in SQ with all that range, but my 80prs is strictly for knocking up and down the block.
