    Best HU for 400 or less?

    I need a new HU badly. I still run a stock Honda deck in my s2000 and it starting to give me problems. Ive been wanting to buy an aftermarket for a while now anyway. I have about 400 to spend on it and I wanted to get the best I can get obviously. DVD playback would be nice and of course all the MP3 capabilities as well. I tend to like decks that have nice screens as well. Just wanted to add a little criteria to what Im looking for. I just wanted to get some input from the car audio gurus. Thanks

    Alpine DVA-9861 is pretty nice. Roughly $350. Not exactly the best screen however. DVD playback. Ability to control PXA-H701 processor if you want later down the line.

    Pioneer P880PRS seems to be the current boner -- and rightfully so. Can be had for about $350 too.

    do you have other monitors that you want to hook up dvd to, or are you looking for a hu with a screen to watch the dvd on?
