Bought this radio as I wanted to have bluetooth functionality to be able to stream music from my phone (an iphone). The setup was easy enough and I got to play some music very quickly. The sound quality is very good from CD, MP3, and FLAC (used the radio very little).
The bluetooth streaming functionality also offers very good quality and was the reason I wanted a new radio.
I have been experiencing some issues using the handsfree bluetooth mode as sometimes it will not accept my input, but that could also be due to the phone. When making and receiving calls, people tell me they are able to hear my well and I can hear them through the speakers with good quality, even when driving at higher speeds with some noise in the car.
On some occasions, I had to manually pair the phone to the unit again. I tried two phones paired simultaneously and that worked fine as well.
The button to eject the front of the unit is a bit small and requires some getting used to.
The display is quite nice and it is possible to change the colour of the leds.
Overall, I think it offers very good value for money and it definitely offers better quality than other similarly priced units I tested from Pioneer and JVC.
