Default finally took the plunge

i have done a toooooon of research, and shopping around and finally landed on a head unit for my truck, never owned a kenwood before, always been a pioneer guy, so this will be an experience! i got this exact model right here

http://www.kenwoodusa.com/Car_Entert...ivers/KDC-X794

i like how clean it looks and the fact that the usb port in on the back so i dont have a wire hanging off my deck. also i have been told high end kenwoods have a more tuneable sound. it will be an interesting experience for me. crutchfield also suggested it with their signature series which means a lot.

I found it new on ebay for 121+10 bucks shipping, it retails for 200 normally, so i got a killer deal on it too! should be here this week.

Tell me how it goes. I'm looking around for a new head unit myself with a USB input for iPod capabilities.

i used to have the pioneer premier dehp 6100ib or something like that, i liked it a lot, but i wanted something a little more current and a bit more versitile. but the ipod hook up on it was killer, being able to control your ipod through the deck is amazing!
