I'm currently restoring my 74 vette and am looking for a good single DIN. I want something with a good display to show me artist + song title + other usual info. I was thinking of a jvc kd-avx40 or jvc kd-avx2 because of the large display (wont be using DVD function though). Any other suggestions around and under $300 would helpful. I would like a double din but doubt I can fit it, this is what Im working with...

I dont really like the look of the 9887 (looks dated), the display doesnt compare to the avx40 but Ive read the sound quality is good. What makes the 9887 cost $50 more than the jvc?

It's a good h/u. It has a lot of extras too.

Quality, reputation, ease of use, and a great all around headunit. I have a 9886 and am stepping to the ida-x303 or x305, Alpine is the only headunits i will run after the experiences i have had wtih them. JVC, while they do make pretty good stuff, will never compare to Alpine.

Looked at the ida-x305, looks really good and love the lcd screen. The only thing lacking is it doesn't come bluetooth ready but it does charge a ipod when using it.

I love my 880PRS. Too bad I fried it on accident. :( I put in an Alpine and didnt like the way it sounded.

I`ve narrowed it down to a alpone ida x305 or jvc kd-avx40. I went into a local audio store. I liked to ease of use of the alpine but the screen or the jvc. Also the jvc comes bluetooth ready and has a built in mic.

nice

And he's local to me too, so I can grab it a little cheaper. I want a spare badly, but I know I really don't need it.
