eclipse cd7100, haven 't really been a kenwood fan but with the noise issues pioneer been having lately i dunno.

Kenwood, definately

Excelon all the way!

I used the x692 and for the money its a great hu, for the price no way i get a premier.
I say Excelon if you are not going to spend a lot of cash and want a nice simple hu with enough extras to keep you happy.

I loved my 880 PRS, but indeed it did have a noise issue. I think I blew a pitco fuse, but whatever it was, was a huge annoyance.

Loved my Kenwood X492, for the money, there is no better. Sctattooer is enjoying it as we type this, lol!

**** i was just debating on which excelon to go with but from the sounds of it it dont matter, everyone here gave them all a A++

Well I would do a 692 and get the USB cord coming from the back, instead of direct connect like my 492 was in the front. Much cleaner IMO. I wasn't thinking when I bought it.

If I don't go navi for my next deck, then I may hit up an Eclispe 3200, which is very nice. Can be had for 250 and under with Bluetooth built in, and cheap iPod hook up.

Something to consider.

Get the Kenwood DDX812. Built in Bluetooth from Parrot and you can add on Nav as and accessory. Navigation is by Garmin. You get accessories built and designed by proven leaders in their field. I own it and can tell you it is the best deck I have every had.
I also was able to add a 30 gb hardrive for $20. Great alternative to an expensive Ipod. Does exactly the same thing.

imo pioneer is getting worse and worse each year, kenwood FTW, love their new designs

I would suggest the 06 models if you can still find one new. They come with PhatNoise media manager which allows Flac files. Plus the voice indexing is cool.
Check my vid in sig to see what im talking about.
