This Pioneer DEH P3630MP is the real deal. This car audio was apart of the deal in our Hyundai Matrix. It plays CD's, MP3 and radio. The quality of the sound is superb. The user has the options of adjusting the bass if that is what your into. It is stored in the dash of the car but is easily removed if you wish to do so when leaving your vehicle for extremely long periods. The supporting speakers give credibly clear sound and there is even the sense of surround sound effects. I don't know about you but Pioneer products have always had an A#1 rating in my book because quality is what the company professes and that is what I have always received whenever I use a Pioneer product like the above mentioned device. So, if you want Car Audio devices...anything Pioneer is the definitely the way to go...you wouldn't regret it. Go purchase one today...and let me know how it works out. You will be stating the same thing.
