Pioneer Premier DEH-P410UB CD/MP3/WMA/AAC/WAV Receiver Review

This is a great tuner for you ipod or iPhone. I ran the included cords (has a usb extentioin cord and an ipod usb cord) to my glove box so I just leave it in there. No need to mess with it at all as the redeiver also charges your ipod. My next test is going to be with one of the passport external hard drives with 140 gig of music to see how well it handles it. I have read elsewhere that it does a good job with externals. One thing that is kind of a pain is the shuffle feature. It wants to shuffle all the time so I am going to have to dig through the manual to see how to control the shuffle better, its like it is the default setting for the ipod of something. This has a lot less buttons than other tuners which I like, but they didnt cut any features. Buttons do multiple tasks and the volume knob turns to select settings. Lots of power on this one too. Seems like a quality unit and the only one I have seen that has a two year warranty.
I had an alpine with ipod control that was the bigest pain in the a**; this Pioneer is smooth and easy especially for the price relatively speaking. Got one for my wifes car too. I like having the same unit in all vehicles so I dont have to try and remember what does what, just listen to the tunes.AM/FM radio, CD, CD-R/RW, MP3/WMA/AAC/WAV, iPod, USB, HD/SAT radio-ready, Bluetooth-ready receiver
