    Overview
    I've looked at decks for plenty of years now and I've always had a fancy for Pioneer because of the overall quality and reassurance of the 2 year warranty although that is almost never needed with pioneer.
    Looking for a more "high-end" type of style is always what I've been with decks as it is the source of everything. For a few years I've been looking at the 940MP, 860MP, etc. The very high end ones. I would consider this deck to be right up there with them.
    The one option that really got me with this deck is the front AUX input. You heard that right. A front input which is smaller (2.5mm rather than a headphone jack which is 3.5mm) but easily adaptable off of ebay for like 5 bucks. I use my iPod daily off the front input, then when I want to put it away and listen to a cd from a friend or one of my own I just put it all away and bam it's clean. I like that cause I am more of a clean person than just eff it throw it over there.

    Rating
    Sound Quality (rating – 9.5/10)
    “Only problem I have found yet is the fact I can't turn the bass off to my speakers. If I knew it had one or could find it, it would get a perfect 10."
    User Functionability (rating – 10/10)
    "This deck is VERY easy to move around on with the remote. I personally like using the remote over the deck itself cause it keeps it cleaner and the remote is simple to memerize so you can change stuff while you're driving."
    Overall (rating – 9/10)
    "Although it is in no term better than every deck in America, it definatly sticks up there as very high quality, as you would expect from Pioneer."

    This deck has suprised the hell out of me in one way. My old deck, which was a completely bottom-dollar sony (when I bought the car it was in there) was only a 2.2v. This deck, which is a 4v has made my ONE sub sound better and louder than my TWO did with the other deck. The settings to control bass on the sub are great ranging from 50,63,80,100, and 125 Hz and a bass boost of +15 to -15.
    What REALLY made a difference is how well this thing conserves power. With my past deck, I could turn it up to 20 and get dimming lights on the inside and headlights. With this deck I can easily hit 30 with full bass and hardly notice a movement in power (theres a batter voltage screensaver) and almost no dimming at all.

    If you're looking for a good deck in the $200.00 range (check eBay, people) then you should consider this deck highly.

    Sorry I realized after playing with my sub settings that the bass boost is from +6 to I think -20. Mine is pretty much kept at a constant -4 as any higher would take away any speaker sound.

    where you turn the bass off in your speakers will be under the High Pass Filter (HPF) you can turn it on and off so look for that



    Don't listen to me.

    Re: 2006 Pioneer Premier DEH-P680MP

    I bought it straight off of ebay.com I think they're going even cheaper now because I lost my remote and was looking for a new on the other day and saw the prices had dropped. Seriously if you cant decide on a deck to get, look hard into this one. I love it. Just wish I had a remote still haha.
    Still don't see the option to completely turn the bass off to the speakers. Just able to set the Hz to 125 - which works for me. If you can tell me specifically that'd be great. Just send me a PM or say it in here I guess.

    may not be new but still a great deck. Been over a year and a half and I still love this thing. Recommend it to everyone looking for a new mid/high end deck!

    BUMP for a great deck...
    Still running strong. And the girls love it
    My ONLY gripe about it is the paint (silver) on the knob dial physically on the deck has worn off on the outsides of it. That was due to losing my remote and always having my finger nails touching it. Just a forewarning - use your skin on your fingers only/remote

    ALSO
    The actual page the deck is located on Pioneer's website has changed. Linked below...

    http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PU...ers/DEH-P680MP

    My friend now owns the newest (2008) version of this deck. It still has most of the same features plus a few more. No more front input though. Only rear+USB. That was the only draw back I have seen..

    bump.
    If you're buying a deck, make sure to look at the 2008 model before you buy!

    Re: 2006 Pioneer Premier DEH-P680MP

    I have since changed over to a Volkswagen Jetta, and had time to mess with my setup quite a bit. I turned the "LOUD" setting [I think that's what it's called] to low instead of high, even to OFF sometimes. It allows me to turn it up to 40-45 instead of 28-31, in turn making the whole system actually louder.

    Anyone with this deck I encourage to either PM me or get at me on instant messaging I'll try and help you set up yours, even though your listening standards might be a little different.

    Also, if you need help in deciding on a deck - let me know, I'll try to help!
