Finally my ritz got some ICE after 9 months/7700kms
My requirements :
1 decent quality with no distortions at mid-volumes. Will never listen at full blast.
2 I came to know I am not an audiophile ( after being accustomed to laptop speakers / mobile speakers only in my long hostel life , presence of any non chinese speakers is a luxury for me )
3 what do i listen to - classical rock , altern rock , slow rock , punk rock.....any type of rock , with some pop , mainstream bollywood thrown in between.
4 budget : Not fixed.Being a student I am always on 0 budget . But still I thought 5k should be the bare minimum required.
5 I like to keep the car as OEM
looking as possible.If there are mods they should be very subtle.
Was lucky and got to know from a friend that someone he knew had an OEM
ritz nippon HU gathering dust since 2 years since the guy had upgraded to better system.
Made a deal through the common friend and got the HU+4 OEM
Total amount paid was 3750/- which I thought was VFM
.I paid 500/- for fitting.Hence total came to about 4250/-.
The guy was willing to give me two sony xplod 4 inch speakers along with it free but as I dont have provision to fit them in ritz I had no use for them
So this is the unit and speakers ( 2pairs ) from ritz brochure with specs.
This is how it looks in my car at night when lit up
Notice the way it lights up even when switched off. Gives a much better effect to cabin.
Also attaching a pic from someone else's thread to show how it looks in daytime.Note my car being a base model does not have silver accents like below.
Now the problems-
1 No USB.Only aux.
For this I started this thread but still havnt come to a conclusion How To Install USB in HU with Working HU Controls
2 The stereo has a sound when a CD is played .even when the volume is 0 the sound is heard.It is from the CD drive I think.
Tried cleaning the CD player with a lens cleaner disk but there wasnt much improvement.
Guys what can be it.Please help.This sound is surely irritating.
The following video will make it clear what I am talking about.
Also on aux the sound isnt there.
Finally SQ , apart from the screeching noise from CD drive, I am impressed.( which proves I am not an audiophile at all)
I may upgrade the front speakers to JBL coaxials or something similar . And also add USB compatibility.
