Default Double-Din recommendations?

I'm looking to replace the stock stereo with a nice double-din system. I'm not looking for a GPS, though. So I was wondering if you guys have any recommendations. I just started looking, but for starters I found a couple on Amazon that I was comparing.
I thought the JVC KW-xr610 was kind of nice, but I'm open to others.

I also found a couple of Clarion units. I haven't heard of BOSS before. I thought they were just snow plows...

I suggest Pioneer, I they have always been great electronics for me.

I just took out a non-touch screen Double Din Pioneer and replaced it with the AVH-P3200BT. Great concept, love the features with the deck and touch screen. I loved the idea of AUX inputs directly on the front of the deck... ALTHOUGH, pioneer dropped the ball by not putting any rear aux inputs with Ipod control ability. My old Pioneer deck had the USB port in the rear, i just kept my ipod plugged into in and left in the glove compartment. With the 3200BT, i cant do that. Ive only had it a week and cant stand having cables hanging out the front 24/7 so this deck is getting returned this week and im putting in a 4200DVD instead. This will get me back to rear USB input.
