    Double DIN Head Unit Recommendations (SQ w/ options)

    So I'm looking for a head unit for my new system but am having issue finding one that meets all the specs. Here is the list of specs:

    - Clear source (my JBL MS-8 will be processing and handling TA/active, just need unit to provide a clear signal)
    - NO NAV
    - Need 1+ USB on rear (pretty standard)
    - Must - 1 Rear View Camera input
    - Must - 1 HDMI(don't think these exist)/Component hookup for Zune HD AV Dock (Don't care about Ipod controls)
    - Must - Bluetooth Calling minimum (would prefer a phone book option and streaming music would be icing on the cake)
    - Preferably a 7" screen but if a 6 does it better I can adapt
    - Preferably a screen with clear higher res image
    - Little to no lag and no lag with zune running thru A/V in.

    I was looking at the JVC KW-AVX830 and looks like a good match. However, I do not believe I can hook up the rear view camera and zune simultaneously. I am down for any brand that meets these requirements and my price range is 300-1000 depending on features.

    Here is the outline for the rest of the system:

    Front: Polk SR5250
    Sub: Polk Audio SR124 DVC 12-Inch
    Amp 4 channel: JL HD600/4 (Bi-Amped Components)
    Amp Mono: JL HD750/1
    Sound Dampening: MLV / CCF / Deamplifier
    Wire: 14-gauge 200ft
    Sub Box: Custom Sealed - Fiberboard (Have the rest of the mats)

    Forgot to mention, not a deal breaker, but 3-way active would be nice

    So I know sony isn't notorious for sound quality...But what do you all think of the Sony XAV-70BT and XNV-770BT? The other possible option I saw was Clarion VX401. As I said earlier, just need this to provide a clean source to a JBL MS-8, and the MS-8 can do its miracles.

    i'd look into clarions or kenwoods. im not sure if there are any alpines or eclipses that will fit those needs but chances are they are pricey. the clarions and kenwoods will be good quality but not breaking the wallet.

    and ya, hdmi probably wont happen. the industry hasnt caught up with that. we JUST now started getting usb more standardized lol.

    HDMI in a car...why?

    no sources that can decode DTS-MA or Dolby True HD
    no video support over 480i

    maybe in a few years but not 2010
