New Double Din head unit: FM Sensitivity

Recommended Posts

I don't see FM sensitivity discussed much. Am I the only one that still listens to FM Radio? :confused: I'm looking for a double din unit in the $150-$250 range. It seems Kenwood and JVC have the lowest FM sensitivity numbers (7.2). Lower is better, correct?

Others:

Jensen:9.0

Sony: 10.0

Pioneer: 12.0

 

I definately want one that will play flac via USB (most do these days). I guess touchscreen with backup camera ability, BT, Pandora. Don't care about CD/DVD.

 

How does this one look? Anyone have this?

I already have these speakers: https://www.crutchfield.com/p_575R165X3/Rockford-Fosgate-Prime-R165X3.html?tp=78072

I thought digital designs was making a head unit from the title. Now I’m disappointed with this thread

They all are pretty terrible. My Alpine 9855 was the best, but that's old. Over the past few years I have had two pioneers and two JVCs and they were all the same when it came to radio reception.

Am I better off with something like this single din Alpine?
