    ive never looked at them as ******. just not my taste.

    the new unit's are about the same bell's and whistles just a new style.

    i like the unit with built in blue tooth, been selling those like hot cakes.

    Re: Are Sony h/u getting better

    sorry, I should have been more specific. the older models didn't have the tuning features and preamp voltage that I like. And didn't see one with 3 pre-outs till recently.

    Re: Are Sony h/u getting better

    I think sony is coming out with better stuff now. We just got a new line of sony stuff at best buy and all of them have high pass/low pass/3 band eqs, some of the higher models even have 7 band eqs Theyve added a new feature which is some kinda fancy mp3 decoding deal or something, and some of the newer models even have usb, distributor cost starts around 40$ for the base model with the high pass, 3 band eq, 3 volt preouts (3 sets) and a bunch of other decent looking stuff. I cant find the models anywhere and not on the bb website either, theyre not out on our planogram yet.


    Id like to try one, but my first radio was a sony, and then i upgraded to pioneer, and dont plan on going back. But for a cheap build id give it a shot.

    should've been under warranty...you could have sent it back and they would've repaired or replaced it

    I bought it used.

    It was a really cool headunit, had like 7 different back ground and moving animations. Back then i didn't know any better.

    Performance was defiantly bad. At it overheated all the time
