    Single DIN DVD Head Units

    Are there any decent single DIN DVD head units around? I can only find the JVC KD-AVX44, which I like, but at the same time am not so sure about how the touch controls will work when driving, and I have room in my dash for an external screen (but no room for an actual double DIN, not enough space in the back of the dash where a screen will fit), so would have no real use for the 3.5" built into the JVC.

    I know there are the Alpine DVA units, but the display on the 9861 looks pretty poor (looks like it will only display 1 line of information) and without the H701 I think it looks pretty limited. Then there is the DVA-9965, which looks great, has all the features I think I would want, yet for some reason still costs a bloody fortune.

    I want something that has good SQ, TA, EQ etc and if possible dual zone capability to run video to rear monitors.

    Any other units like this?

    if you want say time alignment and a good eq its gonna cost some money

    almost any touchscreen made by a name brand will give you good response
    IE Pioneer,Kennwood,Alpine,Eclipse.

    Sometimes Jensens,duals,and brands like that dont do so well with touchscreen

    Im not aware ofa single din DVD that will do t/a




    CDT ES comp
    Eclipse EA4200 amp on highs
    TC Sounds LMS-r 12"

    Yeah, the 9965 has all that I want, but like you say, it is super expensive. I am not even sure why it is so expensive.

    Because it's now there flagship HU. It's a tuner only so less chance of introducing noise from internal amplifiers. It is/was as close to having the quality of the F#1 HU without the sticker price of the DVI-9990 (you think the 9965 is expensive). It has a built-in HD Radio tuner as well.

    It's definitely a fine piece of equipment!
