    best ipod deck?

    i was interested in the alpine ida, but seen many reviews saying the sound quality is horrible with aftermarket components, and you have to buy alot of upgrades in which others come with. would anyone know of a nice deck with maybe a $500 limit which can scroll through playlists and songs as fast as an ipod while having the best sound quality... or is the best idea to just buy one which you charge and play the ipod but use the ipod to choose the music as the last resort?
    thanks alot!

    yes, it's actually 2 clicks and it changes from hu to hand controlled. yes, regular white ipod cord is all that is needed. sq is excellent. scrolls through the playlists as easily on the hu as on the ipod.
