I'm looking to find out basiclly what best for my kind of money. I'm looking to spend no less than $150 and no more than $300 for a 3 pre-outs, Has the animation display of IE: Dolphins, Oceans Seens, Race Cars ect.. Also must have a built in EQ System like Alpine, Pioneer has. I think pretty much all of them have those cool features. And Would be AWSOME to have a Remote with it.

Any Idea's?

I'm also staying away from Pioneer. So any brand but Pioneer...!!:up2somet:

Can I ask why?

Pioneer > Kenwood, Alpine, Eclipse & Sony IMO

Do you really want the animations and everything? Alpine head units don't have any fancy animations but they are very good headunits. Maybe a sony head unit?http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=6986755&type=product&productCategoryId=pcmcat52600050007&id=1099389701805
Or this Kenwood- http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=6983026&type=product&productCategoryId=pcmcat52600050007&id=1099388637102

Most likely they can be found cheaper at a non retail internet dealer or on ebay. My honest recomendation to you is to get an Alpine, Eclipse, Pioner or a quality headunit and not to worry about the fancy dolphins. And just so you know with that price range and number of pre-outs plus the dolphins its going to be hard to find.

Charlie, Animations are over rated and reduce sound quality didn't you know?

My Friends Pioneer has some dolphins n stuff.

I thought all those animations you described come on most pioneer decks?

I believe the Pioneer problem was solved. Not too many decks have animations like that, look into Sony and JVC. Both upper end units are very good.

dolphin animations are ghey..there all gay in my opinion...i know you said not Pioneer but i know a model thats around that price on ebay(DEH-P9200R) that has a cityscape animation and moons/space..pretty slick blue OEM display...

I agree with you Rumble yes they are GAY but my gf loves it and i'll give her what she wants if i can. Me personally i like Alpine, Eclipse, ect..

The kenwood excelons have graphic displays. It seems to differ from model to model though.

I've got an Excelon X879 deck for sale. It has a nice big motion display and 24-bit BurrBrown D/A conveter to boot! Only thing missing is the trim ring. http://www.caraudio.com/vb/showthread.php?t=113854

Oh yeah, no dolphins but it has bubbles!

This might be the dumbest thread I've evar seen. You're asking for dolphins that mostly only come on pioneer's yet you don't want pioneer for some stupid reason...

Go to cartoys and ****ing browse... not too hard.

i've had pioneer headunits since i started car audio 7 years ago..
never had a problem with engine noise.. just make sure you ground your RCA's and you'll never have noise of any kind.

if you dont like pioneer, i dont really know what other company makes headunits with those features.. if she doesn't have a 4 channel amp, she'll never get engine noise... so i mean i dont know how big of a system she has if what she's most concerned about is ' dolphins racecars and stuff'

<shrug>

just one mans opinion.
