I will try to bring this back to the original post. The audio panel works awesome. Very easy to use, simple to flip between radios.
As far as the comment “you only get half the use”, as it relates to BT, the PMA7000B does not have BT, period. If you use a Bose headset with BT then your experience is essentially the same as you can listen to music and take a call if needed.
The wired audio input has been addressed below, which solves for music and calls if needed.
The price is now $699 shipped.
Holler if you’d like it.
