I'm looking to replace my factory hu. Little by little I will replace all the speakers and add an amp so I would like 3 sets of preouts total. I would also like usb inputs. Thanks.

^ looks nice. I worry about trying to mess with all those very little buttons while driving, though.

For low cost HU's I've had good luck with Panasonic.;)

I'll second that. I've helped install a couple of them into friends vehicles and I liked them. No active xovers, though.

alpine cda9856 mine was 204 but that was like a year ago so they should be cheaper. someone here has that model for 170. 3 pre-amp outputs but no usb. why usb? got an ipod? they have an adapter to run through the hu. or you can get the aux cable and use the aux function and run any mp3 w/ headphone jack.

A very good choice, but I wouldnt recommend it for the simplicity of tuning. There are no simple bass/treble/balance etc. controls only a crossover and eq and dsp. So if you dont know how to set these correctly you may be disappointed. If you mess with the settings you find what you like and then you will be very impressed.

I like pioneer HU. Alpine is kool, I'd say Eclipse is best. Pioneer has HU that looks great. I've only messed with Pioneer Hu's.
