    For the price range, that unit looks pretty good. Id say go with it. But first you might want to find a product review and get peoples opinions that have acually bought and have used the unit.

    A lot of ebay auctions offer warranties. Take a look.

    they offer "warranties" and i doubt you can actually get them to uphold the warranty. its shady that way.

    but i found a few reviews for that aiwa;

    http://www.crutchfield.com/S-yjI2YAL...search=pioneer - $30 over budget, but IMO definitely worth the $30 over the Aiwa

    i also found this... ill take a look at that one squeak.

    http://www.cardomain.com/shop/compar...der%3Dpriceasc

    //edit
    lol i was looking at that one. and i thought about it. but its a 16 year old girl, MAYBE ill get her 2 8" sealed subs and a 200w amp and some new coaxials... but its not going to be anything incredible.

    i really dont see the point unless there is somthing inherently wrong with the unit. whats so much better about the poineer (aside from audiophile settings\stuff? she wont be able to tell the SQ differece im sure.)

    The Aiwa is actually made by Sony.

    I had already heard that, but also noticed the Copyright Sony Corporation (or whatever the exact wording was) on the Aiwa website!

    (later corrected...SONY, not Song...[HOLY **** what a difference that error made!! My apologies...])
