5.0 out of 5 stars Good basic car stereo, November 4, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pioneer DEH-1300MP CD Receiver with MP3/WMA Playback and Remote Control (Electronics)
Installed two of these over a weekend in my brother's vehicles (1995 Ford Econoline van & 1999 Ford Escort). Both had older aftermarket units which had failed one way or another. He just needed basic AM/FM radios that work in case of evacuations in Florida due to hurricanes. I have always had good luck with Pioneer car stereos and especially like the FM tuners (Supertuner) for their ability to lock onto stations with a minimum of FM multipath effects (albeit with some reduction in channel separation at times as the tuner "blends" the channels to avoid noise).

The Pioneer DEH-1300MP didn't disappoint us with its performance, looks, or features. It is nice to have the Aux-In jack on the front panel as well as the ability to play MP3/WMA discs and remote control although we didn't really have those features as requirements for our purposes.

Overall, though, the combination of features for the Amazon price was tough to beat. I should note that both of these vehicles had previous aftermarket installations so we did not need to buy new wiring harnesses or fit kits to make them work. If you have a vehicle which needs these, make sure to take into account the cost as well as the effort to install the kit and wire the harness. With cars like the older Escort, this can be non-trivial since the fit kit actually replaces the entire dash module containing the radio, heater, A/C, and rear defroster controls.
