After 4 years of loyal service, I switched from my previous Pioneer to this new DEH-P700BT. First striking difference? The previous one, compared with this one, had a front flap that opened when contact was concluded. This is unacceptable. Now you have to do yourself. But this one has a lot of advantages compared to my previous one: namely a Bluetooth and a USB connection. In terms of sound, this Pioneer is also great. It has an amazing sound quality. Since it has an USB connection, this means I don't need to use CD's any more. My entire record collection is on a USB stick, 16 GB, then turn on the Pioneer, click random and there it is. The Bluetooth connection works great. It immediately recognized my Nokia and you can suppress the annoying echo in two steps. I understand each caller very well and they do can understand me as well. It isn't 'perfect', but rather close to it. Regarding the functionality, I think it is an excellent purchase. It is easy to operate with a large button. The remote control and display is included in several colours to adjust to the tastes of the owner. It costs about 217 $ (141£) Also on Ciao.com under Toysoldier
