Default Auxiliary inputs on radios are terrible

I just wanted to hear thoughts about people who say the auxiliary inputs on radio (Factory and aftermarket) are garbage.

they're a hell of a lot better than Bluetooth imo..

"you will need to use all 31 bands on the eq, qualifying a speaker as better cause you feel it needs lesser eq just means you're not listening closely enough."

They're no worse than the factory CD player.

I can say the aux input in my OEM HU is horrible, as soon as you switch to aux you hear the God awful hiss (even with the volume at '0').

I think it depends on the unit. My oem Chrysler u-connect 8.4 unit seems to have a pretty good usb input. My Pioneer 1700 double din had a great usb input. The usb input on a cheap JVC Arsenal unit I had was terrible. Had a grainy sound.

'14 Grand Cherokee Limited, OEM U-Connect 8.4a, JL Fix 82, c-dsp 6x8, Arc xdi1200.6v2, Soundstream tn1.1200d, stock rears controlled properly by minidsp 2x4 with rear fill plug-in, ID15v3, SB Acoustics SB17NRXC35-4, Seas Neo Aluminum...Rearfill done properly is a helluva drug!

I've had good luck with AUX inputs in the past -- both OEM and aftermarket. My new car ('16 Chevy SS) is lacking one, and I really miss it. The '14s & '15s had one, but it was dropped in '16. Just my luck. Bluetooth is a total beatdown of inconsistency, latency, and signal compression. And the USB connection wants to take complete control of my iPhone, meaning I'm relegated to using the ridiculously slow and horribly-designed UI on the head-unit display. I'd much prefer to use the UI on the phone directly -- it may not be perfect, but it's vastly superior to the mess is MyLink. And if I don't like it, there are countless 3rd party music apps out there with a vast array of different features and UIs.
