Hey there. If you liked the focus stereo, it's about equal. I traded my focus ST with the Sony system and they're very similar, before the focus ST I had a Mini with the HK system and the mini system was more clear but had less bass. I listen to similar styles of music and honestly have never been impressed by any of these systems but have little choice now that everything is so integrated. I miss the old days of single and double DIN opening option that were easy to add aftermarket systems. I have a killer system in my Jeep but it only sounds good when it's parked, lol, It's mostly to overcome the road noise .
