Never looked back. Play all my Porsche approved music (EG JJ Cale) with a USB stock.

I’ve got the non CD player digital/BT only version of it. Great little unit, lots of things to setup to dial your sound. Mine is in my Jeep. I’ve always been an Alpine fan. If you get it, add the little boost amp as well. Very nice.

I ended up going up in model. Less bright power button and 5 volt pre amp. I’m going to use the stock Porsche amp for now. Then look at dash speakers and see if their surrounds are shot.

I know Alpine isn’t like that of “70’s/“80’s but hope I like sound.
