However, for looks and function, I'm fine with the stock stereo head unit/dashboard thing. My question is, in terms of sound quality, how is the stock stereo head unit/dashboard thing? Is it recommended that I upgrade it if I want to improve the sound?

I will mainly be listening through the auxiliary in, but perhaps the USB as well.


I have the same radio as you in my 13' focus st1... It works just fine with my alpine speakers amp upgrades. It doesn't have the fine tuning capibility as aftermarket but sounds good none the less.
