We continue to be pleased with the growing change of Komsomol from the Land of the Rising Sun with their diligence, the quality of production and the harmony of the ranks, keeping pace with the times. Car audio is no exception. The monitored head unit is a confirmation of this and an example of the unrestrained, a little too fast, evolution of radio electronics. I would not change my obsolete, but well-functioning, 150-ku, if it played FLAC. But MP3 initially infuriated me with its inferiority, and with each listening some kind of negative emotion accumulated inside me. And recently, I felt that all this could spill over and splatter the immediate environment. There was a need to change the “head” to FLAC — reproducible (the best option was MVH-X580BT — there is a 24bit / 96kHz DAC, a processor, 3 pairs of amplifier outputs, etc., but the price still bites). It seemed that the 180th model came out quite recently and it was decided to take it, but then the 190th appears, and even cheaper than the 180th with the same functionality — the decision was obvious.
I bought this radio tape recorder a couple of months ago, by the way, the price turned out to be quite a nice price on Photosklad.ru.
And so, what awaits you in the box —
Included with the device with a removable panel are:
- frame-chassis, some kind of fasteners and two pullers. By the 150th, this all does not fit, and vice versa.
- connector with two adapters: for speakers and for power.
- on the traditional plastic case that protected the removable panel when carrying, saved. Now it’s a rag bag with a tie.
Control algorithms are intuitive. Whoever took the Pioneer for the first time will quickly get used to it. Be sure to practice in the parking lot until the basics of control fit in your head. In the instructions, it is generally written that it is forbidden to switch anything in motion.
- switching signal sources — with the same SRC button
- appeared at this stage of evolution the necessary button for complete and instant muting of the sound MUTE (in the upper left corner). Works on all signal sources.
Turning off the device — hold “SRC” for a few seconds or stupidly remove the control panel, though then when the battery is turned off, all settings will be reset. For long-term parking (for a night or more), take the removable panel home not only for safety reasons, but also because of sudden changes in temperature and humidity in the cabin, especially in winter and in wet weather.
