    Another HU selection

    Im lookin for a HU in the $250 + range. I do not own an ipod or use HD radio, blu tooth, etc. All i want is a HU that will play my CDs and give me the best options for toying with the sound.

    I was originally lookin at the pioneer 7100, then the kenwoods started catching my eye. Started reading about the kenwood 693 but I am concerned about seeing the screen in this bright Florida sun.

    Now Im leaning towards the new eclipse 5030. I havent actually seen one of these yet, so i have no experience with it. A buddy of mine had the eclipse avx-5000 and i loved using that unit. I tend to hold eclipse receivers in high regards

    If anybody would like to share their inputs on which receivers offer the best SQ options Im all ears, again I really dont care for 'expandability' options, just sound control

    Re: Another HU selection

    I have had great luck with Alpine.
    9886 or 9887.
    Many many options for tweakability (at least for the 9887).
    I havent owned a Kenwood deck in a long time and have no experience with Eclipse. Maybe someone else can chime in on those.



    Head Unit: Alpine CDA-9887
