    you can get a pioneer premier deh-p880prs for about 300 off ebay, but youre going to need pioneers $50 ipod adapter so that will put you at your 350 limit.
    Pretty much the best choice unless you didnt really mean to spend 350

    Lots of things cheaper......
    But they wont give you all of the features the 880 has.
    If you take a look at the features of the 880, and you are 100% sure you wont use all of them, then you might look at the 780.

    Do you mind Kenwood? Do you terribly mind used?
    I've got a KRC-X679 in great condition for sale.

    To control your iPod it would require one of those $100 boxes (Crutchfield pricing, anyway) you said you didn't want but deck + iPod adapter you're still under $260.

    See my Kenwood For Sale thread if you're interested and according to Crutchfield's site this adapter will make your iPod work with the deck I have for sale.
