i'd like to get a double din unit for my truck for a better over all interior look, but i also don't want to sacrifice sound quality. is there anything out there in double din that can match the PRS80's sound quality or am i **** out of luck?

With CES this week that could change, but it looks like Pioneer has nothing to fill that spot. They went with more of the usual cell phone connectivity rather than DSP.

Was hoping Pioneer would come out with something. Best bet is buying a Bit one or RF360.3.

Here's the announcement about their newest head units: Pioneer Intros NEX Networked Car Radios | ceoutlook.com (http://www.ceoutlook.com/2014/01/06/pioneer-intros-nex-networked-car-radios/)
They have HDMI in, which means an Android device could possibly have digital audio through MHL. I'm not certain Pioneer supports that, so don't quote me on it. I know that's how my Clarion NX603 works with my Droid phone. They also support FLAC.

The 8500 from last year has this ability.
