Pioneer AVH P5700DVD: Bringing home entertainment, to the car
29 October 2008
Summary: I purchased this item back in September 2005, and to this day it's been fantastic (although it has changed cars 3 times) The appearance: When the unit is closed, it looks like a normal CD player, and dosn't even have a LCD display, which is great as an anti-theft target. The magic starts when you put the ignition on, and the automatic rotating screen opens up before you. Displaying a touch screen TFT display.
Summary: Well, this thing was a piece of u know what, sub preouts were bad, which fried my amp, then started a chain reaction, not to mention the screen clicked and did not always go in or out. Tried to get ahold of the Guy, told me tough luck. Will be my last purchase from other seller's on amazon.
Summary: This unit served me well for a few years, but then the touch screen started to get majorly calibrated. As another reviewer said, you would have to touch a bit to the left or right of a button to get it to go. Eventually it got so bad it was virtually useless. I took it apart and tried to fix it- now it doesn't work at all. I'm tired of putting up with Pioneer: exorbitant service fees, poor user interfaces, and screens that go bad.
Summary: Cause i love pioneer radio and i all ready have one i just want another to put in my other car..........................................................................................................................................
Summary: I purchased a vehicle with this already installed in it, and I must say it is not the head unit I would have chosen. The touch screen forces me to poke endlessly about an inch from the actual button image, and sometimes it acts as if it is a larger screen while watching movies. It is difficult to use the touchscreen to surf burned mp3 CDs, but I have been told by Pioneer that if I want to drive about 45 min from where I live I can pay a service tech to re-calibrate the...
Summary: I have owned this unit for about a week now, and it works like a charm! It has three sets of pre-outs which I am using for two MA amps, and a subwoofer. The unit also allows you to infinitely adjust low, mid, and high frequencies - while selecting the kHz. or Hz -, and even which phase your subwoofer is in - OR you can select 16 different EQ modes, which is what I did. The unit can also control a multi CD player, a DSP unit, a Navigation unit, Sirius or XM radio..
Summary: I am not the type of guy who invests half (or even more) his paycheck on "pimpin' his ride". That said, plus the fact that I've a couple of toddlers that need to be kept entertained while daddy's stuck in traffic. So I went out shopping for a DVD player that would fulfill my necesities while keeping my budget balanced. Enter the Pioneer AVH P5700DVD.
