Awesome amplification for banging beats.
The DEH-1500UB's built-in amplifiers produce pristine sound delivered at 4 x 50W of pure, proven MOSFET power. If that isn't enough, you can always use the RCA pre-out to hook up another stereo component, like a subwoofer or an extra amp for the rear speakers for example.
You can play tunes from traditional CDs or CD-R/RW, including MP3, WMA and WAV files.
If your music is stored on a portable device, like an iPod, Android smartphone* or USB stick, the front panel's illuminated USB and Aux-in give them a direct connection to your car speakers via the DEH-1500UB's sound system.

Delivery time was about 10 working days, reasonable but could be faster.
Installation was a doddle anyone can do it in just a few minutes.
Performance is incredible, it took me more than a few minutes to figure out what all the features did and how they worked, the instruction manual had only basic information, but with some fiddling about I managed to get the CD I was testing to sound like the artist was preforming from the back seat of my car, which is very impressive, and the amp-age is out of this world, at volume 50 it was more than double as loud as my previous radio/player.
My only disappointment was when I plugged in my Galaxy s3 via usb, the display read "USB N/A" which meant that I couldn't play my music direct from phone, which was the reason I got the radio/player in the first place. Very disappointing all things considered. But there is a work around. You need an AUX line from your phones headset port to the AUX-IN port on the radio/player, and you can play your phones music through the car speakers, and any other noise your phone makes, like navigation, incoming/outgoing calls, all your apps can be heard from the cars speakers.
BUT while I have solved the problem of playing music from my phone, I still have a lot of wires hanging from my dash, and I was trying to avoid using more wires.
All in all, a good radio/player, nice features, sleek design, loud as hell (if you want it to be) but sadly the USB is only compatible with iOS and not android ( but will still charge an android phone), which is the reason I only gave it 4/5 stars.
Bottom line, check if this model fits your car! and second check if it is compatible with your phone before you buy it, or you will have a jungle of wires on your dash.... like I do.
The 4 x 50w mosfet power provides a real boost to even standard speakers though have it to loud and the speakers will show their poor quality so I recommend purchasing some aftermarket speakers as these will handle the brilliant power of this head unit.
Overall a great product that more than matched my expectations.
Have not yet tried USB or Aux for my Ipod.
Initially I thought there was no On/Off switch. There are two power inputs, one for continuous power to maintain the memories but not illuminate the display or start the radio/CD-player, and one for the radio/CD-player. If you have an Aux position on your ignition, by turning the key to the left, that should give you a switch-on for when the engine is not running, provided you pick the right connection from the wiring harness. Otherwise you have to wire in your own switch on the end of a dangly cord (not provided).
The SRC button acts as an OFF switch if you hold it down for about 4 seconds, which could be awkward in heavy traffic. It leaves everything glowing and a clock displayed, which made me think the unit was still running, but it is clearly in a low-drain "sleep mode" and can be re-activated by pressing SRC again. The volume control is very insensitive, so turning it down because you cannot quickly turn the unit off, is a real pain.
When it comes on, the display goes into a sales pitch, telling you about all its features, in a very flashing way. It says you can turn this sales pitch off from the menu, but it appears not to remember that you have done this, the next time it starts. When I just tried it again, the sales pitch has disappeared. So maybe the problem was when I had not wired up the constant power for the memory. We get so used to computers and mains tuners that remember even after they have been disconnected, that it was a shock that there was not an internal re-chargeable battery.
The last thing you want is to be reading a menu whilst driving along. Eventually you get used to using the SRC button without looking at the menu.Read more ›
