Is this a good HU?


Its $135 shipped right now from sonicelectornix

It says HD radio built in, does that mean I dont need to buy a HD tuner and can just get HD radio channels right when I install it for free?

That's what it means. I had an older JVC and it served me well, but they don't offer many options to customize the sound. 7 band eq is okay, and there probably isn't much more than that in terms of HFC for the front and rear or level adjustments or anything really. It's a mid grade headunit, to say the least. Having HD radio is nice, though....and yes that means its built in and you don't have to do anything to get the channels, just wire it up like you would any other head unit.

Hmm think I would be better off with a pioneer HU or does this look better? I want to get XM satellite radio as well but I could just get a universal adapter right?

I went ahead and ordered it. Seems like a good deal for HD radio included :)

I got the installation stuff free with it as well
