I was looking for a head unit that had a rear usb input, as i place my ipod classic in the glove box, and bluetooth. The Kenwood has a clean and simple interface, which is easy to navigate, and looks less blingy than the other decks which was also a plus in my opinion. It was easy to set up my phone and with the external mic the voice clarity is quite good. The only two minor critisms are that there are no external radio preset buttons. You have to digitally preset your stations and then cycle thru them to get to the station you want. Also if i have the ipod selected and then disconnect it, it doen't default to the radio or disc - you have to manually select your source. Other than that i would recommend this deck!

Its a great upgrade from the stock headunit that was in my 2011 STi. Awesome sound quality, great features, Pushes the OEM Harman/Kardon speakers well. Only thing im not too fond of is the Complete lack of a Pause button, the fact that pandora gets errors on the head unit quite a bit, and like all the newer kenwood headunits... THE BACKLIGHT SUCKS in the daytime!
Overall i love it though, and im upgrading the front stage soon so we'll see how that turns out!
