How about a unit with dual 20 bit burr brown DA converters?:bowdown:

Good brands include (but not limited to):

Alpine
Clarion
Eclipse
Denon
Nakamichi

Honestly, you need to actually listen to each head unit and decide what features you would like. If you plan on putting in a whole system then I suggest something with alteast 2 pair of RCA outputs. If you want a CD changer, then get a head unit that has changer controls. Decide exactly what you want out of it then I would come back on here and ask suggestions. I prefer simple, yet great sounding HU's. I really don't care for all the flash and all the bells and wistles. Just great performance.

better as a rule is only better if you truely take advantage of it. as for most people all the brands so far suggested are more than acceptable.

and why are they better? all the brands mentioned are pretty decent so you got to decide what you want, and which one has it, and which one is the best value.

why do people just belch out one brand is the best, but yet don't explain why?
