Great sound quality, messy bluetooth connection.
This is the second Sony head unit I own in the past 12 years and I like them a lot. The sound quality is very good with the 4 pcs of Sony XSFB1330.U speakers, they can be very loud without any distortion.
Someone mentioned above that the curved faceplate creates blinding glare, I also experience this, especially in sunlight, but if there is no direct sunlight, the faceplate is unreadable because of the mirrored light on the curving.
The bluetooth function is very useful but I have some problem with the music playback via bluetooth.
When I switch on the head unit (the bluetooth on the phone already turned on) and the phone connects via bluetooth to the head automatically, and the music starts playing from the phone automatically or manually, the music is jerky, staccato-like for exactly 2 minutes/120 seconds (I measured it a couple of times). In this time the music playing is sometimes faster/slower for 1-2 seconds but the continuously staccato. After two minutes the music playing via bluetooth is back to normal, and no problem until the next switch off/on. It does this issue 10/10 times, so there has to be some kind of background work or searching with the bluetooth in the head unit for exactly 120 seconds after connected to the bluetooth device, and I cant figure out what to do to stop that annoying bug. The firmware is up to date, so that cannot cause the problem.

Awesome head unit, it takes little playing
Just bought this yesterday and after a little playing around with I terrace it works perfectly.

There are a lot of settings to change when you firat start it up to tune everything in. The Bluetooth pairing was the most difficult as it appears as a wireless headset rather than stereo due to the features of the unit.

The sound is amazing for it's price point and the extra bass feature really helps provide that satisfying punch on the lower end and also helps pick up any low frequency tones in my music.

The buttons are a quite small for my sausage fingers but what would you expect for a 1din sized unit.

Still have a lot of exploring the menus to go through but that's the fun part of playing with a new toy.

The look of the unit is great with the faux carbon print it really ties in with the interior of my car and mods.
