My wants for a head unit are iPod compatibility, Bluetooth, ease of use, and RCA outputs for fro, rear, and sub. If you have any other's you would recommend it would be appreciated. This will be a graduation present so preferably under $400. Thanks

Of course... the controls seem easier to me (on my Kenwood just hit the volume nob twice and it brings you to all the audio controls, hit it once and scroll over and thers your other settings) unlike the Poineers Ive used that have have menus you gotta get through... Also the buttons on my Kenwood seem a lot more solid then Poineers

Well that's very useful to me. I like to no menu thing a lot because my current unit doesn't have a menu either. I will deff have to go to the store and play around with them to concrete my wants.
