First of all, the Tune Tray, BRILLIANT IDEA! I found this deck simply by searching for the concept. I don't use the CD player anymore, everything is on my iPod. The sound quality of this deck through my factory speakers in my 98 GMC is fantastic. It blows the sound quality away of my Pioneer deck and matched speakers in my car. The downside. The lack of features is a HUGE downer. I bought this deck before the two upper models were released. You cannot have the clock and the song display on at the same time. Same for the radio station. The shuffle is horrible. I set the shuffle for random songs, but if I hit the up or down buttons on the remote, it changes from random songs to random albums and there doesn't appear to be any way to change it back other than to remove the iPod and manually switch it to shuffle. To avoid that hassle, one must remember to use the left and right buttons on the remote. The remote itself is very basic, my previously mentioned Pioneer has a much superior design. I use the remote all the time while driving a standard, it's just easier to have it in hand instead of looking at the deck between shifts. It's an OK deck at best and it gets that because of the sound quality and Tune Tray, but the lack of functionality makes it one to avoid, spend the extra on one of the upper models.
