Headunit shopping (around $200)

Well since my old headunit (a pioneer 6400) blew up, I'm looking for something new. I would like to spend about $200, but will a little more if I have to. I could search, but pricing changes all the time and I know new models came out recently. I've never used a Clarion, but I've heard good things about DXZ835MP, and the zeb has it for $220. I was also looking at the Pioneer 660/760. Is mp3 the only difference between those 2? What about Kenwood, or anything else? Gimme some ideas.

Yes thats pretty much the only difference between those two decks. I personally don't like either one of them. I like the 860 best in Premier's new line up. But of course its a tad over your 200 dollar budget now isn't it.

Twist both grounds together. Good call on checking power with a multimeter. I assume you have pulled out and re-inserted the fuses, so as a quick test, connect the radio direct to the battery...

It's a Volvo factory amp, so there's a custom wire harness between the head and amp.

Are you saying that I should replace the jack on the headunit with a wire instead? Is that fairly simple? I'd imagine you would just need to make the proper connections and solder it into place...

Try again on the attachments/pictures. They didn't load. Not exactly sure on the wiring, but you can buy an adapter harness that goes from your factory harness plug to the radio harness plug...
