that's gonna be hard to do. How about u narrow down some of your choices for us? It is after the Holidays and i'm feeling lazy

I'd probably get something Alpine, so I could control an H701 processor...

I like my Alpine IVA-W200..... Could step up to the 205 but both of those should be in your price range

I prefer Eclipse units, but the Alpine W200 seems pretty good. Not sure about the pre-outs tho.

Your best bet is to look into just the more common reliable brands such as Pioneer, Alpine, Clarion, Kenwood, Eclipse, etc. and do your research and narrow it down to what you want between different companies. Just makes it easier for me and everyone else to help you out that way.

:fyi: when i return there better be choices :fyi:

i gave you hell of a deal on the exact unit you asked for, for the price you wanted to spend. my opinion is you really dont want it. lets negotiate. i have pics and all

Choose this JVC KW-AVX800, the best bang for the buck!

I have a pioneer 6800DVD and I like it. It looks good and the fact that its a 6 disc in dash changer is nice as well

I've heard good things about the new Strada from Panasonic.

Can be had BRAND NEW for under $700.

They have a HD so you don't have to use a disk for the navi...

I got the Alpine W205 currently. I got it for the express purpose of double din and controlling the H701 however I think I am going to be looking into selling it and doing a carputer with a 10.4" in my dash and a 9887.

So far the unit has been great, I don't have it unlocked yet but have the TR-7 (thanks amoffitt) I have been using it primarily for DVD music discs lately and been playing through factory speakers without an amp so so I can't give a really in depth review. The touch screen and pulse feedback sure is nice though and if you use an iPod the full speed cable works good. I really like the way you can browse files on it and find the exact song you are looking for just by browsing through folders and such.

I would put out my vote for an Alpine (mainly for the H701) otherwise probably a Kenwood (seem to come with a little more expandability features built in)
