I'm used to Alpine units, and have ran them for ~5 years now, so I'd say something from Alpine....I'd also consider Eclipse units, very nice quality units.

Eclipse CD8454, or CD8053 with the BL if you would use it.

Any of the high end Alpine, Clarion, and Pioneer ones would be a good choice. I'm debating which headunit I should get myself, I'm leaning towards the Clarion dxz945 for the time being.

Well, I bought the JVC KD-SHX700, and of all the HU's Ive had this is the BEST, most slept on HU Ive ever had.....

You obviously haven't owned some high quality HU's then because Alpine or Eclipse are much better HU's than JVC.

Why come here and ask for advice then BLATANTLY not take it?!?!?! Seriously...YOU cam to US! You asked for advice from those MORE EXPERIENCED than you...the consensus was about the same...and then you just ignore it. That's why i had the retort that I did...maybe later when you venture out and try new brands you will LEARN they are better. Have a good one man...peace

I was thinking the same exact thing. He asked for Our opinions and then chose his own anyway. I tried to fight the urge of posting when he originally said what he got...

The Alpine IVA D300 is probably going to be my next HU. Pulse Touch DVD/CD player. 7" LCD. but the cheapest I have found it is $1099

how about the pioneer 6600dvd...much easier to bypass the drive safety mode...cheaper...all the same features plus a background

It pains me to read comments such as this... :crap:

I'd pass on even the ultra elite Alpine and Eclipse setups when compared to the Sony Mobile ES components he was most likely referring to, especially with the prices that they can be had at.

To the original poster, if you're still looking around and have a little luck, $600 might win you this... It may be a little old, but if you're looking for all out quality not much if anything can touch this.

if you are running amps, Eclipse CD8053. if you are not running amps, buy some amps and then get the CD8053 ;)

thats my favorite decks in the $500 price range.

****, I never knew they used to be that hardcore. They must have lost a bit of money on those decks or something because what they have right now is nothing compared to that.
