    What makes you want another Sony? Styling, specific features or just what you're used to?

    I'd really recommend going and trying some Alpine units, you'd definitely notice a nice step up from Sony and for that budget you could get a fairly decent Alpine unit that would have more features and settings than you can shake a stick at.

    People tend to stick with that they know best but I think most will agree you can't go far wrong with Alpine for source units.

    i have a kenwood KDC-M9524


    its gettin a bit old now but cant fault the unit, i went for kenwood cos i could get the music keg

    GF has the alpine glide touch, great stereo but hard to use glide touch when driving

    i used to always have sony units but changed to kenwood for music keg
    What is cross posting? Is it when you get angry and post it on a forum?

    Anything Alpine, or pick up a Kenwood KDC-W808.

    I've the lower model, the 707. It's a brilliant head unit, as good as the Alpine I had before. The good thing about the Kenwood is you can get a lead to make the steering wheel controls AND the MFD on the dash work.

    alpine 9812rb, great unit, had mine a while now and it is an older design but for 200 (sale price) you cant beat it.......http://caraudiosecurity.com/shop/pro...ts_id/417.html

    think its just what im used to... easy to navigate round all the settings, preset's to sound are good (vocal, rock, etc...)

    but possible could consider someting else...

    but has to be completely black...
