The RF-9210 is doing great. I only have one complaint about it. The bonnie has dual antenna embedded in both the front windsheild and rear window. The radio doesn't allow for this. So I have to either use one or the other. I purchased and installed an aftermarket fm booster and its mounted on front windsheild above/behind review mirror. This doesn't really help either. So I am stuck with staticky reception. Its not too bad, but definately not clear.
Fortunately, I have a mp3 player(Creative Zen:W) not shown, yet,and also I listen to cd'* frequently. So the static is not a big issue. Only time I listen to radio is morning drive to work.
But back to the headunit, the RF-9210 is great. I was skeptical too, but I bought it after RF decided to discontinue making headunits and got a good price. I also took the leap of faith because I LOVE RF and want to ultimately have a complete RF system. RF interior speakers as well as bass.
The Radio has lots of functionality and build quality is just as solid as their amps. The harness is copper, which I thought was interesting and the pre-amp outs are great too.
This radio is made for aftermarket upgrades and options.
