Default deck selection help

hey guys i am about to pick up a deck for my ranger to get rid of the stock one, i have always put pioneer premiere in my past cars and been pretty happy with them, but i am looking for something different, i want to stay around 200 bucks maybe a little bit more if i fall in love with something, never liked alpine styling even tho they make a solid deck, and havent heard a lot about kenwood... i really am liking this kenwood deck

any other options or suggestions?

I would go with Pioneer. I had been using and dealing with Pioneer for years and I love it. I can see if I can get you a nice deck for that amount. Stay tuned

that would be awesome, i was running the deh p6000 it was a solid deck, and i really liked the rear input for the usb cable. but for a good deal i might be able to scrounge up a bit more if it was worth it.

haha the audio section in this forum was never alive.. i'd suggest the Sony 640UI or something like that. I got it for $140 and I love it. Simple and easy to navigate and looks extremely clean and nice especially in that blue.

thats not bad looking and i found it for 117 haha but i dont like the font of the writing on the screen, it looks like an alarm clock, and also its nice having multiple lines of writing on the deck for scrolling through your ipod.

ah sweet, anything you dont like about it? i noticed a lot of people say thats its a pain to do anything with it because of there being no buttons, but i dont really listen to the radio, only the cd player and ipod.

as far as the pioneer stuff goes i am drawn to the mvh with blue tooth, thats a shiny pretty thing!

absolutely love my deck. The remote comes in handy. I like having less buttons. Cause the remote works perfect.

x2.

I personally like the CDX-3800UI. Easy ipod controls, nice navigation, good screen, picks up radio stations very well...

Pioneer and Apline has good entry level stuff. Kenwood Excelon series is the next step up

i like the looks of the 7200, it looks similar to the premier i had in my 4runner. they work really well other than the damn cd drive never wanting to spit back the cd!
