Car Audio Products: Car Decks: In -Dash Car Video Players: Double Din Size Video Players: Sony A/V Receiver with Bluetooth | Visions Electronics

I'm pretty noob when it comes to car audio but is there a reason I should avoid this deck?
The features seem perfect for me and the price is reasonable too

Reviews on best buy website look good (Sony 6.1" In-Dash Car Video Deck ( XAV62BT) : Double DIN - Best Buy Canada)

it is sony lol.... if you aren't realyl worried about SQ or expanding your system then go for it... but it looks like it only has 1 pre-out and its only 2v. Not a great s/n ratio either.

LAYMAN'S TERMS!!!!

Lol my car has 2 speakers and isn't too great of a sound space anyways with no roof, stripped carpeting here and there and paper thin doors, don't expect much out of it anyways, (although my current alpine single din sounds pretty good IMHO) and yeah I probably won't be expanding if that means getting amps/subs/moar speakers etc.

(IIRC this is the alpine unit that I have now, doesn't do much beyond aux input but the sound quality is great for a less than ideal setup http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/...2b1078f5b1en02 )

lol this is why I need RS, to me it just looks like "hey a screen to watch tv shows" "hey bluetooth handsfree capability"

your current deck also has 1 pre out that is 2v..... That sony deck is fine if you are just running 2 speakers that you don't plan on amping at all.

Because Staples says min 4 per store.. but the price is at $189.99 just wondering...

asking cuz for bestbuy metrotown we get up line up indoors....

Richmond/Vancouver might be different, however.
are you heading to Langley then???..i might come after the memex online sale...but dunno if i'll make it in time to grab a 2tb caviar green..

if you're going mind updating status of lineups in this thread? =]

I've decided not to go anywhere till after the mad rush. Imperial Hobbies is having their 25% off sale, but even with that, their prices are so high to begin with that it makes it normal price. I've been to at least four or five of their sales. Not worth it. I get caught up in the fenzy and end up spending way too much. Being in the line up is a lot of fun, though. Talking to guys about the kind of stuff they are into. Met a lot of people that way and learned a lot. I know all the regulars. Same die hard bargain hunters.

I am hoping to get a microwave oven from London Drugs. $100.00 off, but the sale is on all week and they have a tonne of them in their warehouse, apparently.

I miss A&B Sound.
