View Full Version : Please recommend a head unit for me

11-04-2008, 03:01 AM
After four years of owning a Alpine CDA-9827 (liked it a lot), I am in the market again. This time I want it to be a budget player (upto around $160) with these priorities.

+ Play mp3 + wma
+ Minimal jazz/color/brightness/lights on the display (my older alpine had a display blackout mode which was what I always used)
+ Very simple looking (no motivation for a thief)
+ Folder/track navigation
+ Nice to have: AUX in (which most players nowadays seem to have anyway)
+ Great plus will be if it can play mp3/wma from a DVD disc (like some JVC units, but their reviews are not so good)

I almost decided on the Pioneer DEH-P3000IB, but the shuffle play in it looks disappointing (not sure) - see thread http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=361046

Many thanks!
