Great HU man... i own 1 and love it.. but one thing man u really have to look at the manual for this one...its not that simple but after u get use to it...u wont need it..4 band eq is great..and there is an mode where u can see how much G's ur car makes in accel and cornering..like that feature...but over all.. u would be happy with it....

I love mine. Totally killer sound quality. I have both the 889 and 789... the 889 is all over the 789 like you wouldn't believe. My only quam I have with it is the lack of blue backlight color on the keys... but that was easily fixed.

The LEDs are surface mount .12mm diodes. If you are good enough with soldering, you can change the red/green to blue. Not an easy thing to accomplish for the faint of heart.
