    Video Setup Recommendations

    Whats going on guys?
    I recently did over my audio setup in my integra and now that its winter, the car will most likely be in storage, I can decide what I want to do for a video setup. The good thing is that my headunit broke (an older signal only alpine which i swore by) so I am open to different methods of running the video setup. Basically I'm not too knowledgable about the video stuff.

    I know that I could get a semi-expensive flip-up screen with an integrated dvd/mp3/cd player, but if i just get that, im going to be spending at least 650, and i would have to make sure that it would be able to play dvd formats right off the bat, because i wouldnt want to have to add another reciever to that setup.

    I know i could also go with a standard audio only deck that could read mp3s then buy a small dvd player, put it in the glove box, and throw a eBay special 7" screen above the mp3 reciever.

    The problem is i dont know what the most effective, easiest to use, least problematic setup would be. Would the single flip-up screen be the best idea? I need your guys expierienced input. I have an external amplifier for the car's components so an internal amp is not neccessary.

    I am looking to spend about 500-700 dollars on whatever I buy, which must include some sort of DIN unit, becuase as I said my older alpine finally **** the cradle.

    I know that I want the best possible quality of sound when the DVD is playing, I dont want to have a great audio setup, but when i turn on the DVD, i still want it to sound just as good as my audio only setup.

    Current Setup:
    4 Alpine Type-S 6.5" 2-Way Speakers
    Alpine MRP-350 4 Channel Amp 4x75 max
    2 Alpine Type-S 12" Subs
    Kicker ZR360.2 Amp
    4 gauge power wire to a Lightinng Audio distro block to two 8 gauge wires

    what are your guys reccomendations, ideas?
