Somewhat of a silly question:

I know this is an Android HU, but if I have an iPhone will I be able to play music via USB/Bluetooth by Apple Music? It seems like you can w/o issue but I'd like some confirmation from people who use this with an iPhone

And the information I got for the Premium radio unanimously said it improved the sound quality on the stock setup, but not drastically. This includes the HK and non-HK setups. Doing the swap for an HK system, though, is significantly more difficult than a non-HK system. My 2017 WRX came with the base 6.2" Clarion crapunit with non-HK/non-NAV. There is a great thread here detailing that process. Seeing as I tried the chink unit first, I took the time to immediately upgrade all of my speakers, so I did not experiment with the stock sound system and premium radio. However, being an audiophile, I can tell you that while the audio may be improved, it will likely still sound like ****. The function of sound quality with the stock speakers is much less a function of the headunit as it is a function of the quality of speakers you are using. If you aren't an audiophile, but still appreciate even moderate quality speakers, for about $100 you can buy some decent Kenwood speakers that will sound excellent with the premium head unit. I recommend talking to an agent at CF and they will find you the perfect speakers for dirt cheap.
You just went from being a dissatisfied customer to an intolerant racist. It's alarming that you see bigotry as "sarcasm."

I have a nearly new unit up for sale in the classifieds. I do agree the sound quality is not up to par with other high end head units, but you need $4000 in audio upgrades to notice the difference. The unit delivers in every other way.

well the satellite tuner is built into the factory radio, so anyswap of the radio you will lose that. (unless you do another subaru radio with a sat tuner in it, then you need to do an esn swap)

Offtopic, but anyone here who has replaced the factory radio and center bezel willing to sell the bezel? Mine is cracked on my '15. The factory part number is 66065VA010.
