I need a head unit that is relatively inexpensive, offers USB support and some way to connect my mp3 player. I used to use a cassette tape, but the quality is bad so I need a unit with good reception to use a radio transmitter or a unit with blue tooth.

Any ideas?

kenwood has a unit with front aux input and USB. I know sonicelectronix has it, scroll through their kenwood decks and you'll find it

wow that alpine ida-x200 is sure cheap on ebay, how costly and where can I get the wiring harness?

Also looked at the KENWOOD EXCELON KDC-X493, and seems like a more solid buy because its new. Any comparisons between the two?

i wouldn't. both of the ida models i had (x001 and x100 + imprint kit) had terrible sq. the kenwood i have now (x993) blows away the alpine in sq.

X2 on the kenwood, very nice HU, easy to tune and SQ is nice.

I'm thinking about getting this one: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_130P6000UB/Pioneer-DEH-P6000UB.html?tp=5684

Comes with everything you need.

I got my Kenwood eXcelon X592 a few weeks ago for $129 shipped at sonicelectronix. Comes with all the installation hardware you need.

If your going to use it mainly for your ipod, i would suggest something with a front aux port/usb port. So its easier to access. As I doubt you want to take your cd player out everytime you need to remove your ipod cable.

Why would you ever do that? I'd much rather have a cord running out the back instead of one hanging off the front. You run the cable to wherever you want e.g., the glove box, center console, sunglasses holder. It doesn't matter.
