I installed this on
Alfa Romeo 147

Review
Finally found a good priced used set with external USB cable.

First thought, the design, build and finish, audio quality is all top notch giving Alpine the leader in Head unit reputation.

Programs were easy to use, screen was high quality WVGA LED screen, button touch was of quality plastic, a lot of features, especially liked it 2nd background style with a microphone similar to The Voice.

The boot up and disc loading is one of the fastest and with an aftermark steering wheel control module, it integrated well.

Sound quality is one of it's strongest point, this HU was highly sought after by competitors and audiophile for its audio quality, features and value for money.
(Mcintosh, Mark Levison)

Hidden features will require a processor to unlock to its full potential for competition level.

Best buy if you can find a reasonable used one, mine was in mint condition and shall port it over to my next car if possible.

What I like
Audio/Video quality

Features

Screen quality

Touch responsiveness

Potential to add processor and upgrade

What I do not like

Review
This MMS has quite a no. of features. I particularly like the Dolby Movie and Music setting (with the external audio processor PXA-H700 or H700). The range of frequencies are crisp clear when coupled with micro precision speakers, tweeters and a sub.

I have the IPod connectivity and that makes playing music from the IPod touch a breeze. It charges my IPhone too.

The touch screen makes it easy to navigate through the setup and source. Playing DVD is just a few clicks away.

The installer was also able to connect the search, mute, volume functions to my steering control and makes the daily fiddling much easier.

What I like
-Love all the functions in the MMS
-Dolby surround, a must with the external audio processor
-Can opt for Bluetooth connectivity with mobile phone.
-Easily connect to view reverse camera in action

What I do not like
- Complicated G. Equalizer, preset P. Equalizer is already tough! But if you are an audiophile, you will appreciate this
- After you have parked the car, the DVD player continues to run (in background) for a while before it stops.
