Great Receiver sorta
Features are great, EQ helps quite a bit, and the Alexa app is handy. Buttons are small, and the folder shuffle is clunky for USB. I need to have fewer folders, for sure. Not the unit's issue but just clunky. I was surprised the unit did not come with a remote. This radio is in an old Sonoma(S10) and I'm used to steering wheel controls in our other vehicles which makes the remote a must-have for me. The most frustrating issue with this is not the stereo but the incompatibility of the Kenwood Remote app with the newest Android OS. It is obvious Kenwood has abandoned any maintenance and updates for the app. Overall I'm happy with the purchase, and there are not nearly the options for a unit like this any longer.
Easier then expected
It looked overwhelming at first, but I found a YouTube video to help with the wiring harness. The hardest part was probably taking out the old radio!
Dead on arrival
I got my first unit hooked up and it worked flawlessly for 10 minutes. I was getting pretty excited that it sounded so good and then it shut off. My replacement didn't work at all. Service has been good so I guess I will keep trying. Probably going with the cd excelon next
