My old pioneer 8600 cost me $500 and has 13 band eq with front and rear filters and tons of other settings. IMO one of the best decks ever but it has its quirks. It definitely has the pico fuse problem. I've grounded the rca's but i'm getting all kinds of noises with a cd in it. Face is getting where it won't open all the way and eject the cd. I was gonna get a new ribbon cable but before I know it I was looking at new decks.
All of the stuff I've been looking at is very lacking in the feature department. Some 5 and 600 dollar decks had 3 band eq and crap like that. Just looked at an alpine iva d106 that cost $900 with 2 band eq and 2 volt preout.
Are there any nice double din touchscreens/decks with some good settings for a decent price?
