CDA9887. Usually goes for ~$300 BNIB.

Or you can look for a Eclipse 7200MKII, Clarion 9255, Pioneer PRS880/PRS800.

Or there are a couple others on ebay with bids on them, but they'll likely go up above that price anyway.

I dont understand those posts cuz I have seen them before... The 9853's dont have glide touch so I thought he made a mistake and meant a 9855 but my 9855's screens look nothing like that???

You are thinking of the 9835 with Biolite and no glide touch.

You could always get the 9887, and get the imprint software, did it in a buddy's car, and sounds awesome.

Any of the ones I listed are active capable. The 9887 has the option to use the KTX-100EQ Imprint.
