I bough this inicar CD/Mp3/USB/Radio player to replace my outdated factory fitted Vauxhall cassette player and what can say, I was amazed and satisfied. The Vauxhall speaker system has reasonably good sound quality and bass range, it handled 4x52Watts with ease and produced such a quality clear sound with a rich a bass and crispy middle tones. Even some of my friends who are obsessed with upgrading or "pimping" their cars with subwoofers and external amplifiers gave this particular system some good credits. Well for normal people like me having this audio player for the price tag of no more that £100 is a not just value for money it is a quality for little money that is one step behind the high end products.
On practical side, yes it took me some time to figure out how to connect it to my car, but it took me more time to remove my factory fitted radio. The manual was very simple and if you follow the instructions step by step you should not have any issues. If however you are afraid to do it yourself I would take it to the garage and for a small fee whosever can proclaim himself as experienced electrical car technician can do it in minutes which will save you some hustle if you are to replace your manufactory fitted device or in most cases stone age cassette player or rather cassette chewer device.
I cannot hide my satisfaction from embedding my 8Gb USB stick in to this device, it gives me hours and hours of continues play back. The AUX input also comes handy if you do not want to spend more money on iPod/iPhone ready systems, just spend £15 on a good quality jack-to-jack cable and your iPod or iPhone could be attached to this system with no loss of quality in sound. Well same goes to CD player and Radio, it has all that is necessary features. The setting are easy to navigate through with a good choice of EQ.
Great value for money and I can definitely recommend this player to everyone who is after a solid performance, tons of features, wide compatibility and quality rich sound.
Summary: Amazing product with a quality sound and tons of features
