Review 1 of 4 , from Honolulu, HI, USA

Price Paid:  $215.00

Year / Model Reviewed:
 92/Accord

Strengths:
Works with ANY cd scratched or not. Easy default treble/bass settings convenient. Modest power. Fairly good sound.

Weaknesses:
Display IS a little cluttered.

Summary:
Its obvious I have no real experience with car stereos. But I run this off my stock system and its 10 times better than the old deck. My friends either buy alpine, kenwood, or pioneer. All the pioneer decks work well with all CDs.. where the alpine, kenwood, and most Sonys had problems. I was also about $50 cheaper than my friend's decks.

Review 2 of 4 , from Houston, TX USA

Price Paid:  $250.00

Year / Model Reviewed:
 pioneer deh-410 2000

Strengths:
the "DFS" alarm is very cool. Powerful. seperate sub output. Dozens of ways to configure the sound output. CD title can be programed to be displayed. Rich sound.

Weaknesses:
The remote has got to be pointed directly at the reciever in order for it to work. The manuel needs to be more detailed. I still dont know how to configure the "q" factor on the fine adjustment mode.

Summary:
Id recommend it because I have one. Im sure theres plenty of good radios out there, but this one is pretty strong and for the people who love lots of options, this one is it.

Review 3 of 4 , from Beaverton, OR, USA

Price Paid:  $200.00

Strengths:
Extremely rich sound. The 3-channel EQ and 3-step loudness control should provide excellent sound with any standard speaker system without sub-woofers or external amps. LED panel is actually visable in daylight (or as close as we come to it here in Oregon). Control layout it very logical and are easy (and safe) to use while driving.

Weaknesses:
Display is a little cluttered for my taste (but far less so than other units with full-color light shows. An Aux input would have been useful for me. Another drawback is that it's easy to accidentally erase a custom EQ.

Summary:
I think I represent a minority view in this forum. I listen to a lot of accoutisic music (classical, jazz and older rock). I am looking for clean, rich sound at moderate listening levels. I was very surprised when "better" units than my original Kenwood didn't sound as good. What attracted me first to the 410 was the extensive EQ capabilities. I was planning on spending $100-200 more on a Nakamichi to get 3-band EQ and discovered that the Pioneer had a similar feature and seemed to sound better without an external amp. For those inclined to twiddle with the sound, you can get into a true, parametric EQ mode that lets you fine-tune the boost and cut on 3, variable-width segments of the frequency spectrum. However, if you don't have the patience, or enough pro-audio experience to recognize the name "Orban," the several presets offered are fine for most musical tastes. Unfortunately, if you go through the trouble of creating the ultimate custom EQ setting and then accidentally adjust the bass, middle or treble with one of the preset EQs chosen, you will overwrite your precious settings with the new pattern.
One of the worst things about getting my car broken into was loosing a stereo with a sound that I was convinced was unreplacable. I found something much better that was much less than I was planning on spending.

Similar Products Used:
I bought the Pioneer to replace an older Kenwood (KRC-160) cassette head that was a dealer-installed option when I bought the car (a 94 Saturn) and was stolen when my car was broken into. A few years before, I tried replacing the cassette head with a Sony CD, which I returned, and a Kenwood CD, which I wound up giving to my wife. In spite of their greater output power numbers, their sound was much thinner than the original Kenwood. Until the Pioneer, the best car stereo I had ever owned. I wound up reinstalling the original Kenwood along with a Sony DX-415RF CD changer (a unit I also highly recommend).

Review 4 of 4 , from Waukesha WI

Strengths:
Excellent sound quality, easy eq, 3 preouts,sub crossover at 80 hz, more than enough funtions to play with.(of course cosmetics)

Weaknesses:
This model doesn't have the high pass filter or a variable sub crossover.

Summary:
I paid around 190 for this deck. I would definately recommend the product to anyone. Although the next model higher adds the high pass filter for the interior speakers.

For the price not much can caompare this year.
