Re: what to look for when buying a new head unit?
I've got the 994 and love it.... unless the sun is shining, then I can't see anything.

But they do have some other features like bluetooth, I'm not sure if you're against that. I found mine used in mint condition, LNIB, for $140. It comes with 3 sets of 4v preouts, BT, T/A, 5-band EQ. If you're willing to buy used, you could probably find one for a similar deal. There's plenty of other options out there as well
