I won't spend that much on a deck either.

All I need in my case is something like the 80PRS with better BT (support for v5, for example), because that's primarily the way I play music these days. (using Deezer and cached music on my phone).

"Nice to haves" would be parametric EQ (like what they had on the old DEH9200), and the ability to "mirror" the deck to the phone via an App, so I can make adjustments from the phone.

Optical/Digital out
Bluetooth AptxHD/AptxHD Adaptive
FLAC Hi Res Support

A HU with those would be the bomb...

Pioneer smart app already allows full adjustments from your phone. Opens up features on the deck thata not accesable from the deck face like a ful 30 band eq. Even on their low end models

thats really a great feature, but i think once the phone removed some of the settings does change up, at least that what it sounds like to me. i save the settings on the deck manually but IDK yet

I noticed this same thing the one short time I had with this. I can be wrong however. I hope someone can confirm.
