what is the price of Pioneer HU 1490? (with CD player) I checked with some dealers here. One quoted 6.9K another quoted 6.9K and I can give you 1K discount. So price is 5.9K.

So I came home and checked online here https://www.carplus.in/1490ub-p-779.html

its just 4.4K !! Is this website reliable because i read lot about fake HU, speakers! I am now totally confused now about actual price of the HU

price seems to be on higher side.
if this reference helps - last week, a friend in b'lore, bought Pioneer 249UB for 5500 with B/W. see how much that dealer quotes for 249UB?

Audio guru's, need advice on a HU+Speakers for Skoda Rapid. Requirements are:

1. Radio
2. USB input
3. iPod
4. DVD-CD Audio/Video
5. SatNav not a must, if available a boon
6. Good set of speakers. Rapid did not come with speakers, just the wiring

I'm a big '0' when it comes to head units, amps and speakers. Heavily relying on Team-bhp inputs, thanks.

do you have any idea about the price of JVC KD-X50BT? carplus.in is selling it for 6300 with MRP of 6900.

got a Kenwood KDC-U4549SD and JBL GTO949 for Rs 9450 with bill and warranty. HU came with some screws which were not used. a metal cage/housing for the HU which was installed in the slot provided for the HU and a remote. the box of the speakers contained screws with nuts, a JBL sticker and some dampning tape. serial numbers on the speakers and HU were same as on the boxes. both these things were distributed by Indian parterns. JVC KD-R626 was Rs 200-300 cheaper than Kenwood KDC-U4549SD. addition charges of Rs 250 were for installation. head unit price must be around 5600-5700. this is to help others to be able to get a better deal if buying either of the above things. cheers!

I am not sure if it is the cheapest, since the Pioneer MVH 1490UB retails for the same price and is superior to the JBL, in terms of SQ and usage. The JBL has some obvious shortcomings, as well as many users complaining of defects in design and manufacture. The only advantage the JBL has is 3 pre outs, as opposed to the Pioneer which has only 1. As long as you can live with that, it is a great HU to go for!

I bought it for the soul reason that it has 3 preouts also I don't use CDs any more . In my case where I usually drive with my parents in the rear seat a separate preout for the sub was like mandatory !! I seem to like the SQ of the HU too . Also there are no defects or issues whatsoever in the HU !!
