Hello Ishon!

Thank you very much for locating the Pioneer Premier DEH-P980BT.  It's
exactly what I was looking for.

I installed it last weekend, and it's working great.  It is considerably
better than my old DEH-P920R.

The color Organic-EL display is awesome.  The time-alignment feature has
cured the problem I've had with the sub bass sound arriving late (you'd
think it wouldn't be that noticeable considering the small distances,
but it is!).

One of the things I really like about this head unit is that out of 62
possible volume levels, the top 2 clip - which isn't too bad.  I tested
it by using my laptop to generate a 1khz test tone with maximum
amplitude, and then measured the output with my oscilloscope.  I raised
the volume on the laptop until just before the sine wave began
clipping.  I fed that into the head unit using the IP-Bus cable I have,
and raised the head unit's volume until just before the pre-outs began
clipping the sine wave on my scope.

I carried this process of testing through to the output of my
amplifiers, and I get distortion-free sound all the way up to volume 60,
and I avoid volume 61-62.

The sound with this head unit is clean, with none of the exaggeration I
used to experience.  I haven't had a chance to run a frequency sweep on
it yet (because I'm enjoying the sound of my music too much), but I
anticipate no holes (missing frequencies).

I haven't managed to get the Bluetooth audio to work yet - it appears
Linux doesn't know what to do with the device, even though it is listed
correctly as a headphone type device (for playback).  I imagine it's a
bug in the bluetooth stack in Linux.  At least I still have IP-Bus
(aux-2) and aux-1 inputs :)

I don't recall seeing the option to ship via UPS express or expedited
when I ordered this unit - for your Canadian customers, this is probably
a better option, since these services include the cost of brokerage in
the price; possibly making it a better deal, or at the very least, a
similar cost with faster transit times.  I paid $111.00 to UPS for taxes
and brokerage charges - I totally expected this amount, but it's always
nice to save money when possible.  FYI :)

The shipping box did arrived a bit crushed, but the inner box arrived
unscathed.

Thank you very much!  I definitely recommend your company.

Clarion VRX785BT - A Customer Review

 

Clarion VRX785BT

 We've told you about the Clarion VRX785BT before but check out some of the things that Jesse from Pensacola, FL had to say about this spectacular unit.

I am an avid car audio enthusiast. I have spent months deciding on what single din unit I wanted to put in my 02 dodge ram, quad cab. I like my music loud, clear and able to accept all the latest technology, I believe this is all our desires filled, without dropping a $1000.00. I am extremely happy with the ease of this unit, touch screen and clarity. (I’ve seen em all first hand and this matches any other top of the line unit, believe me.)

If you aren’t a fan of loud music and just function, then you'll get it all with this unit. Now SQ improves 100% on a factory system. After installing multi channel amp, mono amp, and subs, the sound quality needed a boost, especially for the subs, I needed to add the clarion 7 band equalizer, which improved SQ unbelievably. One wish was it had been all in one unit. Pros/ Clarity ease of use, sleek design, Bluetooth, excellent USB controls, all the latest technology included in this unit except radio HD. Great SQ on factory system. Never touch a cd again. easy easy install. Cons/ Low equalizer functions and capability. Especially when installing aftermarket system, mainly you will hear it in your subwoofer guaranteed. Add an equalizer and you’re completed.

 OVERALL: Unbelievable unit for price!!!!! True competitors and sound quality enthusiasts should think twice. This unit is smack dab in the middle class of all stereos; anyone looking for it all for a great price will be completely satisfied. Don’t pay ungodly amounts for any other head unit that wont do as many functions as this will, (I cant stress this enough) if you like your ears to bleed and need a receiver capable of handling everything you throw at it, Be weary, this unit is there to replace your factory head unit and have every function with ease and usability capable to mankind.
