Dual makes on that has it all (Aux,USB,HD Radio, Bluetooth) http://www.google.com/products/catal...CBcQ8wIwATgA#p

I have heard no real complaints form this manufacturer either. I know its not top of the line but all that in one package for less than 200 is a steal IMO

Dual is garbage. I'd go with a pioneer or jvc, both are moderately priced and have all the features you mentioned. If you're going to upgrade, upgrade to quality And save yourself the headache.

Looks a little shady to me. if your gonna spend 200-250 you can get a lot better quality.

In my opinion Dual Blows the big dong. I have always bought pioneer from crutchfield and they have good discounts and there is no tax. Plus it comes with everything you need to install it.

It's an internet store only, been in business for a long time, they used to have a counter for pick up in montreal but they closed it, and you can't buy them in stores. Though i've seen a couple of rebadged stereos at canadian tire. Back when the first in-car dvd players came out at 4-5k a piece, they were selling them for 600-700$.

From the local feedback, and personal experience, they are reliable, and a hell of a bang for the buck.

did Crutchfield's head unit help and every time i got back a reply it was the most expensive unit they had with those features. I only got one head unit that was anywhere close to the price range i set. Any other ideas. And I have heard that soundstorm is a really good brand just new.

The link below is this years model of my radio. ABSOLUTELY love this thing. Buy from Crutchfield like they've told you. Free wiring harness, double din to single din adapter (cubby hole thing), installation instructions, free shipping, and the best damn customer service of any company on the planet in my opinion. $139 is cheap, and it's a quality radio.

Also, I use this micro sd card usb jump drive for the front of my radio. It looks WAYYYY better than a standard jump drive hanging out the front to me. Check out my albums for a size comparison of this usb vs. a standard jump drive.
