    Time For A New Head Unit - Need Input

    I currently own a Pioneer 6900UB - it's worked pretty good up until what appears to be faulty RCA or something along those lines.


    Anyway - Head unit must have USB for flash keys and XM radio input - I'd like to have bluetooth for the phone. FM radio doesn't matter at all - no video or anything needed either.

    Have been considering DEH-7100 from Pioneer - any other thoughts?


    Here's my current setup in case it is needed..

    PG 6.5's and tweets up fron connected to old school Orion Xtreme amp for mid-highs

    1 Stereo Integrity 12 hooked up to a Diamond D5 1200.1 For lows.

    Audio Control EQX

    Budget - is $250-300 preferred - can push $350 if I give the wife a foot rub or something - LOL.

    I'd go with a Kenwood eXcelon 693 or 993. The 993 has blue tooth while the 693 doesn't. Both fall into your price range.
