Aesthetically cool, but lacking performance 3/5/2012

Shopped and compared for months for a unit to replace my 8yo Sony X-plod unit in my F-150.
Looks cool; color dynamics are awesome. Good positioning of AUX and USB. Controls are easy navigable and comprehensive.
Old unit had DSO for listening position and separate treble and bass. With this unit, tailoring my sound is a little harder despite a customizeable 7-band EQ and I still haven't got it up to snuff. Volume difference between radio and CD varies greatly. (Turn the volume down when going back to CD).
My old unit was also 52wx4, but new one just seems to lack the punch. Same wiring harness and DIN cage as old one seemed odd to me but made installation an absolute breeze.
I would recommend this product for a 1st time stereo buyer or new enthusiast, not someone who is very picky over their sound.
