5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product, 9 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: XOMAX XM-RSU208B-2 car stereo / car radio + Bluetooth handsfree and playback function + USB port and SD card slot (each up to 32 GB!) + MP3 + WMA + Single DIN (DIN 1) Standard Installation Size + mechless / CD less + shorter installation depth + with remote control (Electronics)
Having read the reviews I was in two minds on whether to buy this product or not. On one hand some gave it good reviews for sound quality but bad for the power and others were saying that the bluetooth didnt work (a feature I needed) and that the built in amplifier was only 7 W not 60 W.

After receiving the device it was a straight swap for my old Sony MEX-BT3900U. Straight off, when configured the sound quality is actually better than the sony. The unit definately is more powerfull than the sony (which was a 4X52W unit) and the bass is a lot more defined with a lot less distortion and clearer at higher volumes. The radio playback quality is excellent and easy to set up. Playback from any SD/USB device is also brilliant but again depends on how it was ripped in the first place for overall sound quality but normal 320kbps mp3 files sound brilliant and better than on the sony.

One issue a lot seemed to be having was the bluetooth. In order to get this working you need to go into the menu (press the large middle button in) and keep pressing the button until you get to the BT-OFF option (this is default) then turn the volume button until it goes to BT-ON. search for new devices on your phone and it will appear as BlueAudio. REMEMBER android devices tend to show new devices at the very BOTTOM of the list so scroll down in case its off the screen. When that is done then it connects within seconds. My old sony unit could take up to a minute to do this, There is no fance phonebook option or dial option from the unit but no biggie there. The call quality is excellent and loud and really clear for the other party as well.

One thing that really surprised me was the music playback. When you select to play music from the phone my music app automatically launched and played, full control for skipping, FF and rewind are all controlled from the unit so you never even have to take the phone from your pocket, a feature that was not available on my Sony, I had to start the music player before I got any sound.

Overall this is an extremely impressive piece of kit for the money, It is high powered and sounds brilliant with a full BT function for your phone for calls and music. Cant recommend it highly enough..

Thank you for your review. You have definitely made me think seriously now about ordering one. I have been looking for a decent player without the CD bit for a long time now and you have surely made me decide to buy from here. I am not sure if this particular model comes with an ISO lead though but that is not a problem really.
These have only just come back into stock on amazon so they are a new batch and I hope I can get mine working as good as what you say?
Although the price has gone up slightly but maybe they are worth every penny?
If you do get this message could you let me know if it does come with the ISO converter lead?
Thanks again for such a good review I think I can trust your review as some people do not have a clue really.

Thanks
Graham
