   Review : Who uses CDs in the car anymore? I can't think of the last time I did... So when my Blaupunkt Nevada started to flake, I needed to look for something new... Since the car is aging, I couldn't bring myself to spending the $$ I did on the Blau so I looked for something much more modest. Hoping for streaming bluetooth, built in mic, this fit the bill and Amazon had it for a good price. Looks- 2/5. It's not flashy, which is probably a good thing so it won't get stolen. Ease of installation- 5/5. I used wire crimps, and it's ISO so the wire color match the harness. My old Blau was ISO, so I could have just used those plugs, but I opted for a clean install. Sound- 3/5. Solid 3/5. I don't think any stereo can come close to the Blaupunkt Nevada in terms of pure sound in a stock speaker setup. The Pyle is not too bad, though. The 80W peak is pretty good, not as good as the 100W peak of the Nevada, but good for the pricepoint. The built in EQs are meh, I'ld just rather muck with the treble/bass settings manually. The treble adjustment boosts the high vocal range but not enough of the sparkly highs so tweeters will help. The bass boosts too much into the low mids so the sound gets muddy fast if you turn up the bass setting. I found that LOUDNESS on, with +1 bass and +6 treble gave a good sound, with (barely) enough bass punch, but not droning or too nasal in the mid highs. Very good for stereos that only have LOUDNESS and bass/treble settings. Bluetooth- 3/5. Unless BT is factory installed, it'll always be a compromise. The mic will never be as good as one with a standalone mic, but I didn't want to run wiring anywhere. For what it is, it's clear enough. Sound coming through the speakers isn't bad either, no feedback, so good vox. Using the remote control, you can actually dial numbers and scroll through call/missed/received. I wish there was a way to do that just on the stereo unit itself. Also, there's no way to prod Siri with the remote or on the unit. So if you need Siri, you need your phone out to push the button. It also doesn't auto swap BTwith radio etc for driving directions. If you're listening to radio, and you have directions through BT, it'll switch to BT on the unit, but not switch back to radio when the directions are done. Ease of use- 2/5. The instructions are lacking, so you need to play with the unit to figure everything out. How do you turn on the LOUDNESS? the remote has a button, but what if that's missing? not in the instructions, but experimenting showed that if you hold down the volume knob, it'll bring up a secondary menu (short press brings up audio controls- bass/treble/fade/LR). EQ/LOUD/BEEP etc is in the secondary menu, which you have to dig for. A lot of controls on the remote that are not accessible on the unit itself. Other- 4/5. The USB provides power even not switch to it. Good for charging phones. Display bright, although dimmer would be a good addition. Overall functionality is very good. Overall- 4/5. Despite the lower individual ratings, the overall package is a decent 4/5 considering the functions you get for the price.

   Review : I needed an upgrade from my am-fm/tape player stereo in my 2004 Accord but on the cheap. I parked outside an Autozone to get the power conversion kit and had it installed myself with a screwdriver and wiresplitter in about 25 minutes. Personally, I really like the removable display face and its simplicity. Bluetooth works great, has aux input and a usb port. Is just the receiver but doesn't support CD player (i don't think, but honestly, get with the times). Only drawback I have with it is a little of the layout of keys, unnecessarily has a SD card slot (do people actually use these?), and doesn't scroll song/artist names from the radio. It tries to when I plug in my shuffle sometimes, but not all that well. Frankly, don't care that much. The thing works fabulously for what I want and couldn't be happier.

   Review : This was the 1st Pyle brand product I have purchased. The main reason I bought this product was the Bluetooth feature. At 1st the radio worked great. Price was reasonable for the features included. After about a month the microphone on the bluetooth quit working. Get to worry about trying to get warranty coverage on my 1st Pyle purchase.

   Review : I have used pyle speakers @ my church for years with no problems. And I can say they make great audio equipment for home & automotive use. This radio has all the features that I would need for fine car music I love the usb & sd card jacks.

   Review : The Pyle PLD27 MPBU works fine, even my ipod works in the usb connector. I give 4 of 5 stars because the only issue is the level or power of the sound, I think it lacks of power, so you should think about adding an external amplifier If you want to hear your music louder. I am using this player with Pyle PL463BL 4-Inch x 6-Inch 240-Watt Three-Way Speakers and with PYLE PLG69.5 6-Inch x 9-Inch 450 Watt Five-Way Speakers at a 1988 Chevrolet Celebrity.
