The internal DACs and 24 bit processors are very top notch and the sound coming from it is beautiful. Puts out a really strong signal so your amps get a really clean source that prevents clipping.
Most "close to SQ oriented" double dins are in the $700-1200+ range and they still dont have as in-depth of SQ functions as a pioneer 80 prs, kenwood x998, alpine 149bt. (the big 3 go-to SQ head units)
A digital sound processor cleans up the signal, make it sound really good and provide endless tuning possibilities along with very dynamic sound staging. Very expensive and not very noob friendly. You really need to know what your doing if you want to tinker with it.
also just to let you know, capacitors do next to nothing when it comes to providing power. They regulate fluctuations in the voltage which can be used for a 2/4/6 channel amp to keep a steady voltage and prevent spikes in the sound spectrum. However if you think it can provide power to stop voltage drops from the power draw of your amps, your sorely mistaken. A secondary battery or upgraded under the hood AGM battery does a much much muuuuch better job.
