Comes with original box, remote, remote mount (NOS just purchased from S. Buwalda), harness, trim ring, etc as pictured.

Radio face is immaculate and functions perfectly.

This HU is as good I have ever heard. I bought it thinking that I would be able to use the digital input to connect a hard drive but the connectors on the Pioneer are proprietary and only work with other Pioneer gear, like the DEQ-P9.

The ONLY issue with this HU is that the trim ring does not connect on all sides. It has never fallen off while driving, but if you push on it just right it will pop off easily. The trim rings are available through Pacparts if you are really anal about it and have to have a new one.

If I could get the digital input to work the way that I want, there is no way I would be selling this.

$410 shipped to Con. US.

I would consider an IVA-W505. I know, it isn't the SQ of the Pioneer, but it does some other things that are a priority for me.

Just to be clear as I am not too familiar with this unit. The digital output only works w/ pioneer such as the DEQ? No other units like the Bit One, DSP6, or DAII. Just curios as I may be interested for the wife's car.

The output on the Pioneer is a multipin optical. There are cables that convert that to a standard toslink, so it might work with the optical in on a bitone, but I can't vouch for it and the owners manual doesn't get into that kind of detail. I was trying to use the digital input put the cable doesn't work in the other direction. I tried to get some buys in the business to weigh in on using the digital input but I could never find anyone that had done it.

If you buy the apline, panasonic, or eclipse DDL 4 pin to toslink cable this unit will work with other units such as the Audsion BitOne.

The EQ gives you time alignment and EQ that are not included in the HU.

FYI - It has been tested and found that no HU sounds better on PPI Art or Orion HCCA amps than a DEX-P9 :D

I used to run the 1st version of the ipod control with a DEX-P9 and it sucked. It only displays like 8 characters on the screen. The 2nd version may have fixed this problem, I have no idea. It is not close to as good as it is on the 880
