Just letting you guys know I bought the Kensington LiquidAUX bluetooth setup today.

http://www.amazon.com/Kensington-LiquidAUX-Bluetooth-Remote-Phones/dp/B0011UIX2K


Been wanting to buy an aftermarket stereo for months now but nothing really caught my eye. All I wanted was inteqrated bluetooth for hands free AND a2dp streaming, USB port in the rear and steering controls and green illumination. The Eclipse CD5030 was the choice because it had all of those (built in steering controls) but the illumination is only Blue/Red. Plus I found out yesterday they are leaving the car audio business. The Alpines nickle and dime you to death with add ons and most other brands have the USB port in the front.

Then I found the Kensington. Just plugs into the 12v outlet and the 3.5mm plugs into the aux. It has a USB port on the 12v adapter for charging. The 3.5mm cable is the perfect length where there's no extra hanging around keeping a clean appearance. The Bluetooth streaming sounds good. I'm a sound enginner and to me it's good enough. (It's a car! if I want an audiophile experience I'll sit and listen to music in my studio) The Bluetooth hands free is not bad. You have to turn the volume up a little more for when calls come in. People on the other end says it just sounds like a speakerphone but tolerable. My main objective was to be able to get in the E without attaching my iphone to any cables and go. The only thing is that when a call comes in or whenever the phone is switching a function (like when you have a GPS app/music running and the GPS voice kicks in) you'll hear a very slight pop through the speakers. Nothing drastic or annoying sounding. For 25 dollars I can live with it. Now I get to keep everything stock and use that money I saved for a proclip and amp kit. Still trying to figure out how to mount my JL 300/4 under the seat without cutting anything.


Just thought I'd share my experience to anyone that's in the same position as me.

Thanks for this thread guys! I just got this and I'm in love. I don't need to use it as a phone, but for wireless audio, it's great! Thanks again.
