Well the update is that I have decided to buy the Hamburg HU after all!

This decision formed more out a lack of options than my inclination towards Blaupunkt. But I hope the Hamburg one is worth every rupee.

The dealer suggested a pair of Kenwood KSC M-1628A 3 way speakers to go with it (I can only afford a pair now). But can you please suggest if these would do justice to the Hamburg - please keep in mind that I listen to music at low and moderate volumes?

Should be worth the price you pay.

I haven't had the opportunity of listening to those Alpines, but would expect them to be not comparable to having components. Since you are buying a good HU, one would recommend that you have at least components in front. The rears can either come later, or be lower cost coax.

Why don't you look at Blau / JBL / Hertz speakers instead? Their budget speakers are better than the run of the mill Alpine or Pioneer.

What is your budget, btw?

The budget is not much - so have installed the Kenwood speakers. They dont sound much - but thats all i can afford right now.

Maybe later, I will transfer them to the rear door, and install some good ones in the front door. Speaking of which, how are the Blaupunkt IN-Car series speakers?

However, my objective has been fulfilled - the hands-free option works superbly - the caller's sound comes clear and loud through the speakers, and the caller can hear me well too

Just 1 thing frustates me about the HU - while scanning for FM channels, it skips my fav ones. When i try to manually set a channel, it moves forward by .20 MH (for example, if I want the 95 MH channel, the HU comes to 94.90 and then goes to 95.10, therby skipping 95 MH ) - any help in that section?

I think that FM tuner is set to North American region. If you go through the manual, there will be a description of how to change the tuner region - select the European tuning. This can be done with the help of the combination of headunit button presses as given in the manual.

Thanks, I will try it out - hope it works.

Any feedback on the Blaupunkt IC122 speakers - compared to the Kenwood ones?
