    help choosing a head unit

    I have a budget of $150

    I would like nicer pre amps than I currently have (2.5v)

    I would like new (for warranty reasons)

    I would like blue tooth for playing off my phone w/o plugging in aux

    I want a front USB port for i-pod

    I don't care if it has a cd drive or not

    those are my only requirements.....

    my car is a 2000 civic sedan, my current set up is as follows

    JVC KDS27 head unit
    Hertz 6.5 front speakers
    Stock rear speakers
    Audiopipe (VVME actually) APSM1500
    2 Kicker L7 (12"s)

    I'll be replacing rear deck speakers and adding a 4 channel amp next

    Im running the 396,and it works well,The only thing I dont like about the unit, is that the Face Release, and power button in the same location, so if not used to it, in the dark,you may end up pushing on the face release button since it sticks out further,but you will get used to it, and the brightness of the face,to see the functions during the day..seems like it could be a bit brighter,about all I can say..other than that Great HU

    kdc-x696 is installed and I'm loving it. It's amazing how much better my subs sound with a nicer HU.

    my fronts sound better also!
