lol, i love these threads.

Sounds like the customers that come up to me at work. What is the cheapest head unit you have? Ok, ill walk them over to it. Well, is it pretty good?

I always relate back to the saying "you get what you pay for"

haha yeah I understand where you're coming from. I'm not looking to buy the cheapest one for myself, I was just wondering what the cheapest out there is that's still worth getting.

Panasonics are usually pretty cheap online and they're pretty good for the money. I had one and I loved it till I got my Eclipse 8051.

My question remains unanswered ;)

What are your plans, something with a decent eq? Ipod control?

what would you like in a head unit.

I like clarion. Good product that doesn't wipe out your wallet. I have the Max 675vd, and the 765 vd. Bothof them work great and I love the IPOD interface.:)
