Was looking for a budget double din DVD player and I found 2 that are pretty cheap was just wondering if either unit was worth a **** or which one would be better quality.. I've never ran a deck from either company and can't find anything as far as reviews go..

the decks are PLANET AUDIO P9740 or SOUNDSTREAM VIR-6500

Both **** IMO. They are about the same quality. I heard the Soundstream. It sounds ok if you've never heard anything better. If you like Jensen decks or Kicker l7's, you should be happy with both. You might as well get Jensen because it works better with the Ipod. If you want real quality, you must get Alpine or Eclipse. I've never seen a good budget double din. The cheapest that are worth it are around $400. There's the Alpine IXA-W404, but it has a small screen.

I'd like a Alpine, Pioneer, or Kenwood, but at the moment I don't have a deck at all mine is broke and I need something quick and a high end unit is not in my budget...

I'm using amps for every speaker so nothing would be ran off the deck... still avoid or what?
