I need suggestions for an hu with the following:
-rca or high level out(rca is preferred). high-low converters are cheap, but hu's will distort when the high level, if it has one, is near full volume. I like to just yank the knob up to full, but with distrotion I'd have to set my amps at a higher gain and only turn the hu up part way.
-removable storage input. mp3's on a sd card, micro sd, usb drive,etc. also needs a good d-to-a converter.
-single din
-buttons to skip tracks, play/pause, volume...

thanks for any help

Actually I think I might buy the cde145 because the usb is in the front

I would step up to at least the cde147. Has 3volt pre outs and other great features you will end up using...

I'll be using a line driver and crossover anyway. I'd prefer if it didn't have sub x-over and the line voltage doesn't matter. I'd honestly prefer a line voltage of 8v.
