View Full Version : Recommend me a head unit

11-23-2011, 06:52 PM
What I'm looking for:

Sound Quality (most important!)
Single DIN
Bluetooth A2DP
HD Radio
RCA Outputs - front, rear, sub
Able to dim the lights or change color so I'm not blinded at night.
Easy to read text, I noticed on some JVC units, it's difficult to read.

I'm replacing a Sony HU, and what I hate about this Sony is scrolling through songs. I'm able to use the volume dial as jog, but let's say I'm at track 100 and want to go to track 130, I either need to press next/skip 30 times, or if I want to use the jog feature I'll need to start back at 1.

Another thing I hate is the MP3 music order. On this Sony, it organizes them by last added. So let's say I have 300 songs on a USB stick and I add another song to make it 301, it will be track 301 no matter what the file name is, very annoying.

If someone could recommend me a HU under $300, that would be great. Thanks.

Are these any good?

I'm leaning towards the Kenwood KDC-X995, any reason NOT to get it?

I'd say the 995 would be perfect for you. It seems to have everything you need.
