Some do, but you often need to add a surround adapter to fill the gaps.
Fortunately both my cars are old and unfashionable enough not to require this.

Amazon are not the seller
Bit misleading

Gonna be no more Planet Rock available on DAB in Devon and Cornwall since their stupid re-tune...grrr!

If your looking for a good car head unit that plays mp3s and FLAC, from both SD and USB then I recommend the Kenwood KMM-361SD - it's a great unit and sounds fantastic with our existing speakers. No cd etc.

Where is the USB connection? I dont see it on the front panel. I only listen from USB sticks these days.

As backtothecaves pointed out most vehicles have a fascia fitting kit available. Sadly though they are generally expensive and/or fugly.

It's covered by a flap, on the right hand side above the aux in port.

No Micro SD slot?
Have my collection stored on a card in my current radio. Doesn't protrude like a USB stick

I have this, overall not bad, only problem I have is when you pair your phone through bluetooth it loses the pairing after you've connected a USB stick, you have to manually pair it every time after that.

If the quality is anything like that of my Pure Legato II ( £350) it is colder than something that is really cold.
Clapped out after 6 months and now so has the replacement.
"Pure"?
Pure shoot more like! oO

Got this head unit few months ago in eBay for the same price. Great unit however remember some of you will need a DAB antenna I used a window screen version from auto leads cost was 20 quid at halfrauds. Then you need ISO leads again this differ in price mine were about 9/10 quid. Then you will need a aerial adaptor if you want to connect up standard am/fm radio. You can pick them up on eBay for 2 quid I paid a fiver at halfrauds for mine as I only found all this out when I went to install it

​just installed mine. dab aerial from Amazon £10, no fm aerial required. Plugged straight in. Good to be aware you may need extras though. The sound of Dab radio versus FM is amazing.

One helluva way of reducing your listener base. Not that Planet Rock seem to give a stuff. Absolute radio is probably the only option now!

I was about to buy this, and then I read that DAB broadcasting in the UK is only 64kbps and MONO.
I thought DAB was meant to be crystal clear oO

I don't know about mono or stereo. I know it is far better than FM. I do lose signal occasionally and it reverts to the FM equivalent station. The difference in clarity is significant.

If it was double Din would've considered replacing my Audi Concert unit, don't like the blaming panel to convert it to a single din slot
Not heard of this brand before, thought they only made DAB Radios

Fairly happy with it. Does the job without wires. Got a cheap arieal from halford which work ok. Controls are simple, only wish would have been able to display name of track I play from my phone via bluetooth to units creen but it can't unless me doing it wrong.
