Excellent DAB head unit
on 15 March 2013
My previous head unit died so a new one was required.
I love my tech in my car so it has to be right
My criteria were
I didn't need bluetooth(already have voice activated Bury system)
Not interested in watching DVD's(I have a laptop and tablet for that)
DAB essential as I was already going to buy a DAB addon for my old head unit
AUX in required
The Pioneer ticked all the boxes so I bought it. I also fell for the Pioneer hype(you need a Pioneer film antenna(AN-DAB1). No, you don't
I paid nearly £30 for one and reception was average/poor.
I got a Sonichi magmount and the difference was incredible.
I now get lots of DAB stations with crystal clear reception so now I have Kerrang and Planet Rock wherever I go.
The unit can be customised to suit as I find the flashing "disco" lights irritating but you can set the illumination to suit your taste.
Audio quality when plating CD's is fantastic, better than I expected for the price.
Considering the DAB addon I was going to buy was around £70, this was a bargain and I'd recommend it to anyone thinking of making the jump
to DAB but a good antenna is essential
