Customer Reviews:

  • super unit
    Bought this from Amazon - could have gotten a few bucks cheaper on Ebay, but, lacks the ability to easily return. Also, got free ship on it. Unit is really great; paired it with some Pioneer speakers - only 4.5" and 5.25, yet its ability to drive with little distortion makes een these small ones sound good with plenty of base. Although some seem to say controls are difficult - they seemed pretty intuitive to me. MAin rotary could be bigger, and, the search is a bit small as well - but, overall east to see and use. USB is great feature not available on most for this price. Probably will never use the blue tooth, so, cannot comment on its functionality. Radio sounds great, which is what I will use most. Would like to have the ability to store more stations on one setting, but, most are the 6 this is. Only annoying thing I found is that I cannot switch off HD - although it definitely has improved sound and clarity - it does not come in all places that the regular stations will. As a result, it is in/out all while listening to any broadcast that offers both on the same station. Additionally, I am a bit wary of the connections hoilding up from removal of the faceplate on a daily basis - I go cautiously. Like the flashing red security light though! Other than that - I would recommend this to anyone who is not a complete audiophile, lots of features, clean sound with decent adjustability, plent of power with ability to add an amp if desired, great station capture and looks good with an easy read face....more info
  • Great Value
    I replaced my old Pioneer head unit with this and it sounds much cleaner.
    We have around six HD broadcasts in the area and the AM sounds like FM in HD mode! I love the USB port and the AUX jack on the front. This is a great product....more info
  • Great
    Great car stereo. Lots of cool features. Sounds great even with my stock speakers, never felt the need to get aftermarket speakers. Sounds much better than than the $400 system I had in my old car. HD radio sounds fantastic but sometimes loses the HD signal in dead spots. I use the aux for my ipod and the usb is cool. Just plug it in and it plays the music on it even if there are other documents on it. Very loud! I have to crank the volume when I have the top down on my car and it is still only half volume. I dont even know the max volume because I dont want to blow the speakers. I was skeptical because Dual is not a big name brand but it works great and I have no complaints. This is the most features you will the money. Buy it....more info
  • I stil love this radio
    I found this radio on closeout at a large chain store and had it installed for a tremendous price. The amazon price is still excellent for all of the features this has. Build in HD, CD, USB input, Auxillary input, and bluetooth ready, and a remote. The sound was great and I had my brother purchase the same one. His is still working, but for some freak reason, my faceplate quit working, and would not connect after only two months. His is still going strong. I still can not say anything bad about it.

  • HD Radio
    The Dual HD radio is great. The sound quality of HD really comes through. I use the USB port all the time too. Convenient, and the USB sounds better than the CD. I really like it a lot. Have had it for 6 months and had no problems or issues.

  • poor quality and poorly laid out
    I don't see as well as i did when i was twenty so the tiny buttons are a pain as is the tiny print on them. The display only has one line of info, so to see time of day and which station or track your listening to, you have to press the display button up to five times for that info. Everything was displayed at once on my factory radio so I miss that. The HD radio is superb and the difference on am is astounding but the signal isn't strong enough on the one HD am station we have in Houston so the radio constantly reverts back and forth from HD to regular signal and that is so aggravating that you will change the station. You cannot switch off the HD. By default, the radio is in auto sig seek mode so it won't find some of your favorite stations until you get into manual tune mode and set a preset. Then the radio reverts back to auto after a few seconds. I've had this radio for four months now. Almost from the beginning the cd skipped but as time goes by it happens more and more often. My eight yr old factory radio that it replaced never skipped unless I hit a bone jarring pot hole. Now the lcd display goes completely blank and that has prompted me to seek warrantee service. I bought this radio because I wanted to play mp3s and wma files from cd. the ability to do it from a thumb drive was a real bonus I've grown to love but the disadvantages of this radio out weigh it's good points. I've reinstalled my factory cd and wont be putting the dual cd back in when it returns from service, look for it on craigs list....more info
  • SUPER..!!
    Now I have telephone on crappy my car :-D.
    Easy to install, sometimes annoying when finishing a call because it doesn't return fro telephone mode to whatever mode you where before, excellent sound for the price.
    HD Radio is SUPER..!!!
    Now I have premium sound in my old car, just for les of a 100 bucks...more info
  • This is my first HD radio!! WOW what a radio..
    My review probably won't help a lot, but here is my take on this radio. The installation was a breeze, I actually opened the manual to check out the wiring diagram. Easy to read and all the colors matched the harness adapter I bought. Setting up the radio took a little effort on my part, I am one of those guys who says "Manual? I don't need no stinkin manual!!"

    If all you want is basic setup and play stations right out the box, then this will also work perfect. It is that easy to start playing, all you really need is the knowledge of how to change channels on any electronic radio. Saving presets is pretty much the same in all radio's. Just tune in the station, press and hold the key down till the number preset shows on the left side of screen.

    Put a CD in and it will read and start playing like any other deck. And it also can use a USB storage device to play mp3's, that is so cool. It also has a random button to play them randomly. I am so use to the mp3 player in the Zumo 500 GPS, it only plays then in alphabetical order. The random button this radio has makes my music listening so much more a pleasure.

    Lets talk a bit on the HD Radio, I was surprise to see I didn't need to add anything to have HD radio, it even worked using my stock antenna. You can't say that about XM or Sirius radio!! All you do is tune in a station and in a second or two, the HD locks in and the sound will knock your socks off. HD even makes the AM stations sound great.

    I had no use for the Bluetooth adapter so I didn't not purchase one, my GPS serves as my hands free device. I can even use the 3.5mm cable out on the GPS mount to the AUX IN and listen to the GPS through the radio!! That is a cool feature I never had before.

    The manual leaves a lot to be desired, but take time to read it and get to know what this radio is capable of....more info
  • NIce CD deck, but a terrible, terrible tuner, and NOT Bluetooth Equipped!!
    When I bought this deck in May 08, I gave it 4 stars. Then I found the deck is NOT Bluetooth equipped, only Ready(Amazon has subsequently changed tohe title to say Bluetooth-Ready. Wankers), and once I bought the BTM-60 Module, I found the module is not compatible with LG phones. I'm a radio junkie, & was excited to get HD radio. That is, until I found HD radio works about as well as an automotive shortwave, unless you're not more than about 10 miles from the source, with good line-of-sight. Unfortunately, where I live, unless I go to the top of a 200 ft knoll overlooking my town, the only HD station I can get is a Conservative "Christian" station. I recently drove from to Central Oregon & back, & I found KUOW-3 only worked 40-25 miles south of Seattle, and 10-20 miles north. Even when I could see the source, the reception sucked.
    I really like plugging my MP3 player into this & using the remote to control it.
    After reading reviews of this unit, why didn't I pick up that this requires addition of a Bluetooth receiver? Bonehead! As Otto(Kevin Kline) said in "A Fish Called Wanda", "DISAPPOINTED!!" But hey, the CD section works flawlessly. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for the tuner section of the receiver, which I'd hoped would be an upgrade from the POS stock unit in my Volvo 240. However, the AM section is weak, even after the addition of a new, slightly longer antenna mast. The only AM I listen to is ESPN, and for some reason, the local Seattle ESPN affiliate's signal is terrible, so I listen to KNBR out of San Francisco. (I just got off the phone with Dual's tech line, & they advised me to send them the unit, that they haven't gotten complaints about the AM reception- which means how long without a radio?). The FM reception basically sucks.
    I really enjoy having a remote control unit, however, why doesn't it have an illuminated keypad? A tech I spoke to at Dual was overjoyed when I suggested it, said he'd never considered it. Logical, eh?
    The almost-bottom line, this is a fine value. The very bottom line: I was overjoyed I scored this unit for $99.95 on Amazon, figuring what a deal, eh? I called Crutchfield, & bought their Installation guide for the Volvo 240, I bought wire & splices. I spent hours pulling panels & my POS stock head unit. I got 75% done, & due to the fact that adding aftermarket audio to the Volvo 240 requires the stock amp in the be bypassed, I hit a place where I was stuck, and did what I should have done in the first place: I went to a PROFESSIONAL audio installer & paid $110 for their expertise in finishing what I'd started. If I'd gone there(CTs)in the first place, this unit would have cost me $149 including installation, and would have saved me time, money, and aggravation plus frustration. As it stands, I'm out about $220 plus gas & time there & back(not to mention the fact I had to kill 90 minutes in Lynnwood, Wa., which is never a pleasant idea). If you have a vehicle where you can simply release the catches and slide your old unit out & the new unit in, by all means snap this up. If installation in your vehicle requires panel removals, and grunting & sweating & wiring, pay the extra base cost, & buy this at and have it installed by your local professional. You'll be much happier.
    In addition, make sure your phone & Cell service provider have Dual listed on their compatibility chart. I figured, "Bluetooth? Same-o-same-o, no prob, but LG told me to check Verizon's chart: very few aftermarket stereos are listed, & Dual is not among them. Bollocks!!
    After 5 months living with this, I'm ready to Ebay it. I really want HD radio, but since I can get it much less than 0.1% of the time I'm listening to the radio, why have it?
    Bottom line: CD player: flawless; "Built-in" Bluetooth: liars; Aux/MP3: flawless; Tuner: totally unacceptable. Terrible. I would NOT BUY THIS AGAIN, & I had to kill my original review, then resubmit it so I could lower the number of stars....more info
  • Works as advertised
    I've now owned this radio for nearly 2 months. It was my first car radio install ever. I had to purchase a couple of converters to get it into my 1995 Mercury Mystique. I did have a touch of trouble with the install, but that was only because of my lack of knowledge on the subject, and in the end, I was able to get it in and working.

    With a small tweak, the sound out of this unit sounds great with my factory installed "Premium Sound" speakers. I had read in several places that the bass from this unit was weak, and when I first started using it, I had the bass turned all the way up and still wanted a little more. The solution to this is to set it to Loud mode. You press and hold the volume nob until the unit beeps at you (a couple of seconds) then it will say "Loud Mode: off" Turn the volume nob to change it to "on" and you will have plenty of bass. You will also have about twice the volume as before, so make sure you don't have it turned up too loud when you do this. Once I did that, I had to turn the bass down.

    I have not had any trouble with the tuner. The HD stations in my area sound better than the analog stations and there are a couple of stations that are broadcasting 2 or 3 streams. If only there was more on the radio worth listening to.

    The aux input was the main reason I purchased the unit, and it has been great. I can just plug my mp3 player in and go. I have also used the CD player, although I haven't tried an mp3 CD in it yet.

    The only function I haven't used yet is the USB port. I was hoping I could charge my Zune (yes... I have a zune) while driving, but the USB port in the unit is not providing power (or at least not enough to charge a device.)

    Of course, coming from a stock, in-dash cassette player this is a huge step up. The sound has been fantastic, and I've enjoyed listening to my music whenever I want.

    The one final gripe would be that the station pre-set buttons are tiny. They are like rockers. You press one side and you get one station, the other side gets the other station. It's impossible to hit the correct one if you have gloves on, and even without gloves they take a lot more attention than they should just to change radio stations.

    All in all, I've loved the unit. The price was right, the features are fabulous, and it functions as advertised....more info
  • CD-any format/MP3/WMA/USB/HDRadio/Aux in.
    This unit takes just about anything you can throw at it. Looks decent and once you play with it enough and understand the remote, very easy to use. Add an amp, good speakers and you have yourself a great system. This unit by itself does all that is advertise. I paid $100 to get it professionally installed; do it right the first time and you will not have any problems in the future. No extra gadget for HD radio makes it a big plus. All of the other positive reviews are true....more info

I had to replace it with a Jensen radio to get the same features, since the store did not stock the Dual anymore, and I used my extended service plan.

  • Would Not Reccomend
    I bought this a while back, and it has recently stopped working well. When I start my car, I have to eject and re-insert CD's so that they will work and it also for some reason will not read my auxilary cable and my ipod....more info
  • A best value for features.
    I have had this radio now for about 2 months. Omaha, NE has at least 7 hd stations, and i must say it neat to pick them up. The HD 2 and 3 stations tend to be commercial free. The difference in quality is noticable. It would be equivalent of going from FM to FM stereo, now HD takes it one step further. Many of the other brands on the market you have to buy the seperate receiver unit, this has it built in. Also, this unit has a usb adapter which allows you to bring your flash drive along and play MP3 tracks flawlessly on the radio, a very nice feature (500+ songs on a 2GB stick) It has the auxillary input for your MP3 player/satillite radio receiver. This unit does have bluetooth capability, but I don't have this. This unit does not have an XM/Sirius ready capability, so you do need a seperate unit, again which can be run to the aux port. So overall the best bang for the buck if you want HD radio, USB slot, aux slot and CD. Check this one out.
    Update: my brother had this same model, he did have to return it after 2 months, the faceplate quit working completely for no reason, so unknown flaw with it. Mine is still working fine, and I would call it a freak thing for now. will keep this updated....more info

  • good for the price with few issues
    Great price especially with reading USB device directly and HD radio. But since I am living in very close proximity of NYC, I don't see that much diffent between standard stereo and digital stereo (probably my car is old). I found a few things I did not like at all:

    1. Fast forward on mp3 is soooo slow. This is not a good thing if you listen to ebook or podcast. Remove the device and insert it again will reset to the beginning of the list. Take a long time to fast forward if you have a large file.

    2. The way the system index MP3 files is really weird. The first file on your list (either title or file name) will not be the first one on the list. I even named the file 00, 01, 02... but file 00 can be number T30 or T21 on the list (randomly). Weird.

    3. If you have ebook or podcast on CD as mp3, the system will skip some words. This is different than the normal skip on regular CD. For example, the sentence "I like this machine. Good" can be played as "I like this good". Rewinded the track will play the same thing again. Only on CD and not USB device. Very annoying so I am only using my flash for MP3 rather than CD.

    4. Not much bass at all. My old system generated a lot more, and I mean a lot more bass than this system.

  • Even without HD, this is a great setup, and great sound.
    I don't want to go over what everybody else has already told you. Here are the pros and cons of this radio as I experienced it.
    The radio installed easily with installation parts from www.installer.com. I put it in my Ford F150 using the Ford speakers. The sound was good, yet not as much power as my original Ford equipment, so I increased the power by buying one of the Dual 300 watt power amplifiers. This was just what it needed, the sound got much, much better. I would call it perfect now.
    The Blue Tooth attachment worked wonderfully with my Blackberry 7100i. So far, not with my Sony Ericson 580i. The calls I make using the blue tooth are excellent. I have placed 10 or 12 calls and all reported very good audio, and most did not know I was using a hands free device. I still had wondered how my opinion would compare, so I left myself a voicemail at home and listened to it last night. It was perfect. There was no detectable difference from any other call. Yes, you do have to end the call by hitting a button on the phone, but I never take the phone from my hip to do that. The phone connects automatically. As soon as I turn the radio on, they link-up and work perfectly. The glowing blue phone button can be used to answer the call or dial the last number again. As soon as a call is placed the music goes into a paused mode and you hear only the phone call. As soon as you disconnect the music returns. The same is with received calls, as a call comes in the music stops and the speakers ring. You tap the blue phone button, either on the blue tooth adapter, or on the radio, or on the remote control, and the call is answered.
    The USB port can hold very big thumb drives. I have a mini 4 GB drive in it. How many songs the memory holds is common knowledge, but the specifications say the radio will work with up to 48000 songs, and play them in random order. It also has a search by name function, a search by track number. The Cd plays CDRW, or CDR. It will play MP3, or WMA, and support very high sample rates.
    The tone controls are the bass, and treble, plus 6 , to minus 6 in range, plus a preset EQ. The EQ has many settings, and they have pretty good range. I managed to get awesome sound.
    I used a two channel 300 watt Dual amplifier on the two front channels. I could have used a 4 channel amp, but I did not see a need for it. My primary speakers are front mounted. The amplifier has a terminal to be controlled by the radio, so when the radio is off so is the amplifier.
    The radio has two RCA outputs, one for front channel audio, and one set for rear. I would give this a rating of 4.5 stars; only because I feel that there is a little room for improvement. One would be the way calls are ended, and other would be that the radio would remember what kind of display I want. As it is, if I want to see Track information in the display, I have to set it that way every time I turn the radio on. Not such a big deal, but I wish it were different.
    One more plus, the radio can store tone controls for each mode separately.

  • Excellent value
    I am very impressed with the value of this purchase. $100 for an HD radio with a blue tooth option, seems like you would get an entry, no name brand, item. But this Dual car stereo is a quality item. I am very pleased with the HD stations and the overall usability of this deck. I have not purchased the blue tooth adapter, so cannot remark on that feature, but otherwise can find little to find negative about this purchase. The digital signal sometimes fades in/out which can be a distraction, but the music quality is excellent. My kids love the auxillary ports. I thought the remote would be mostly a joke in the regular cab Ranger p/u, but my daughter finds it easier to navigate than the dash controls. I consider this to be one of my best purchases in the past year....more info
  • Good features but needs to be factory reset often, unreliable!
    I've had this head unit for almost a year now, the first 6 months were really good. The unit has some great features and it's priced well.. I was happy, then one day it wouldn't tune in my favorite FM radio stations. All my presets just wouldn't tune in.. there was nothing but static. I was confused because it just happened.. with no apparent reason and other stations would still come in fine. After playing with the unit and trying to figure it out, a buddy suggested I try to reset the head unit (a small button behind the face plate) and sure enough... that did it, I could receive my favorite channels again. I reset it and all was good for about a month.. and then it happened again.. and again.. and again. I can't go a week now without the unit freezing up and forgetting how to tune stations in. I wish I would have bought a less sophisticated unit and went with something more reliable....more info

  • Great low-cost but full featured deck
    This unit works great and is cheap.

    Pros:
    - USB (for usb charging or usb memory cards or usb hdds)
    - AUX in (great for mp3 players etc)
    - HD Radio (fantastic if you're in a major city)
    - Resumes playback on mp3s (even from usb) which most cheap and even some not as cheap mp3 decks don't do (they start from the beginning of the track when you turn off your radio and resume).
    - Optional Bluetooth adapter

    Cons:
    - Buttons are plastic-y and a little hard to press and the volume knob isn't that easy to grip. It does come with a decent small remote however.
    - No ID tag or filename reading from USB. Only shows track time.
    - No subwoofer out or subwoofer controls, but it does have 2 sets of preamp outs (front and rear)

    If this unit supported ID3 and or filenames through USB it would have 4.5 stars. If it also had subwoofer preamp out and controls I'd give it 5 stars for the price. The Bluetooth module being separate option also keeps it from the highest rating. ...more info
  • Great Value
    I replaced my old Pioneer head unit with this and it sounds much cleaner.
    We have around six HD broadcasts in the area and the AM sounds like FM in HD mode! I love the USB port and the AUX jack on the front. This is a great product....more info
  • Best radio for the money
    Every feature you could want short of an animated screen and DVD player. Have already referred this product to a couple of friends....more info
  • Almost everything we wanted
    The pros:
    Reception on this unit is superb, both traditional and HD stations.
    Sound is excellent.
    Best value for price point.
    Expandable for Bluetooth with Optional adapter. (We don't have it yet to comment on its functionality)
    USB and aux inputs.

    The con: (yes, only one, but it was almost a two star deduction)
    The control layout is crammed and hard to use. Several important buttons are on the ring around the volume (HD seek in particular). Each station preset button has two stations, a left-right toggle. This wouldn't be a problem except that the face is already crammed. And, the 7-8 button isn't usable for presets??!??

    All-in-all, this is a good unit. If you have large fingers or want a "factory unit"-like layout, it is not for you. This unit will do a LOT. And, most importantly, it has great HD reception in our area.

    We definitely would attempt to find a new model in "the flesh" before purchasing. We have learned to be happy with this one.

  • Exellent value for less than $100!
    We ordered four of these for our little "fleet" of Geo Trackers and Suzuki SideKicks. With all of them being soft tops, having a expensive radio in the dash is pointless. These suit us very well with the USB port on the front panel and the operation of the unit is fairly straightforward. The unit could use a better internal amplifier for each speaker. Dual claims it's a 17 watt per channel amp, but testing it on the bench we saw no more than 5 watts even at max volume. Only noted flaw is, the unit has no way of turning off the HD mode of the radio. If you're listening to the primary HD channel and your car's antenna isn't the greatest, you'll constantly hear the radio blending in and out of HD mode. Would be nice to just turn the HD off and listen in old analog radio mode. A preamp for the antenna may help and I might order one to see if it helps. This lack of a HD on/off switch might be why everyone is selling these at half off since the radio typically sells for $198. ...more info
  • Nice features at a good price.
    For $100 this has all the features I wanted: USB, front auxiliary input, HD radio, and CD player. I haven't tested the CD player or USB yet. However, the quality of sound from the HD stations is quite impressive. (If I had better car speakers, I'm sure I could appreciate it even more.) All in all, it is easy to install, use, and is of good quality. I definitely would recommend this to those looking for a nice, budget model car radio....more info
  • CD-any format/MP3/WMA/USB/HDRadio/Aux in.
    This unit takes just about anything you can throw at it. Looks decent and once you play with it enough and understand the remote, very easy to use. Add an amp, good speakers and you have yourself a great system. This unit by itself does all that is advertise. I paid $100 to get it professionally installed; do it right the first time and you will not have any problems in the future. No extra gadget for HD radio makes it a big plus. All of the other positive reviews are true....more info
  • STILL A NICE RADIO
    I found this radio on closeout at a large chain store and had it installed for a tremendous price. The amazon price is still excellent for all of the features this has. Build in HD, CD, USB input, Auxillary input, and bluetooth ready, and a remote. The sound was great and I had my brother purchase the same one. His is still working, but for some freak reason, my faceplate quit working, and would not connect after only two months. His is still going strong. I still can not say anything bad about it.

  • Great receiver for the cost, HD sounds awesome
    I haven't exercised every function and input, but the clarity and signal to noise ratio is excellent. No FM hiss, MP3s play flawlessly from the inputs I tried and the EQ auto-curves give the sound a nice shape and clarity. Menus and navigation when using USB could use a bit of work from the manual dials, but using the remote seems to be more intuitive. And, I wish I could see the writing and icons on the keys since the unit has so many functions in 1-DIN arrangement. Still, using the remote seems to be the way to go for the general functionality. Two thumbs up....more info
