Bought this not knowing that it was about to be discontinued! Lucky old me! Fantastic sound. Fitted this myself with no problems. Great price. Many thanks Car Audio Centre as I can now listen to 6 music on the move.

Excellent head unit and a very nice all round tone, bought as an upgrade to a factory fitted set, lots of different useful functions for sound shaping and covers just about every form of media. A1 bit of kit.
