This unit even offers Versatile Link which allows you to add an MP3 player, VCR, DVD or even Video Game sound to your system. The attractive blue LEDs and silver finish complement the high-tech look.
Summary: This was pretty much top of the line back in 2001. I still have mine in my closet along with my old Soundstream Ref 500 from 1995. It's a good comp deck. I would highly recommend this to anyone with ears and seperate amplifiers.
Weaknesses: yeah, its a little bright but you can push a button and the display will black out
Summary: This is by far the best player I've ever heard. It picks up EVERY sound in the songs clearly. It is so crisp, and if you get a chance to buy one definately do it. I have Eclipse speakers, and the combination is amazing! Listening to bands like Tool or Sigur Ros, or anything else that has a lot going on musically in the song, takes me to another world it sounds so good! This thing NEVER gets hot, has so many options, and is beautiful. Dont get tempted by graphics and crap on the other players, its not worth it. SOUND is what you want, and this is the BEST!

Weaknesses: From the dealer @ $550.00 new, could of got it cheaper but well worth the $$. I bit bright while driving at night.
Summary: I just love the HU, so many features that I don't use but half of them. It is a bit bright during the night, oh well it keeps me awake at 4 in the mornin. Just recently I lost my right side(front, rear, and sub). Going to get it fixed, might just be a couple loose wires. If I need a new one, I would buy one just like this and maybe with speaker outputs from the HU. Dealer told me you either amp all or amp nothing. Better sound quality if you clear out all the crap you don't need in your HU(e.i. speaker outputs 45x4, 3CD changer, ect.) I'm going to keep this HU until I get a new vehicle, maybe a dodge durango.
