I bought it before my Kenwood, and it SUCKS.

No IDTAG and long file name support at all! You can have 150songs per CD and have no clue what is playing at the moment.

Let me preface by saying I love Sony stuff (not speakers), all my home theatre components are Sony, and i have a Sony Mobile ES head unit in my car. However, in my experience (and that of my car audio installer) Sony car audio head units don't put out a powerful enough signal for use in a an amplified component system. I have to have the levels turned all the way on my amp just to get a loud enough signal to sound good. My installer (very reputable and well known) doesn't like to work with sony head units for this very reason. My mobile es unit is older but when it came out it retailed for around $1,100. In my opinion I would go for something else. Im replacing my unit with a Nakamichi unit if my damn car is ever cured of its suspension malaise.

no id tag support? i dont think i like that
i'd have to look down at an index of songs if i were to use that =/

oh well, i see the kenwood one alot at flea markets, maybe i'll get that. Now that i'm done with my performance mods, (Except for my nos install...that comes next month), and fixing my cars problems, i want to work on the stereo.

i have some equipment so far lying around my basement
two 18" pioneer 600watt subwoofers, and a cheap legacy 800watt amp. I wanna see what i can do with that, and maybe upgrade to a better amp eventually. Supposedly the speakers are alright
