Help finding a new head unit... Audio guru's get in here!

So my radio is on its way out.. yet again... thank God for Best Buys 4 year warantee..

I am looking for a radio that..
A) Can control an iPod (Nano)
B) Has a seperate pre-out for subs (aka 3 pre-outs)
C) Is ~200 bucks and carried by Best Buy

I found this one, it seems close to what I want..

What do you think of this one

Thanks!

I got the same exact one in the mail right now.

I've researched extensively, and this is the best bang for the buck. If you want to get this from crutchfield (who includes all the brackets/harnesses you need), AIM me sometime. I'll give you a referral code that can save you 20 bucks.

Also remember to include the iPod cable and maybe a remote

Awsome!

Thanks for the offer, but I have to get it from BestBuy. When I got my first HU a few years ago they gave me free installation if I got the extended warrantee. Well I killed that one in about a year or so and got a new one for only $20 (the differnace in price). So now a year and a half later this one is going, so now I just have to convince the BestBuy monkeys to replace it with out to much hassle.

So I'm starting to see that this is the one to go with then huh...?

Good choice, Alpine makes a great deck for that price.

I just ordered the same one too since the 9831 I bought as an open box crapped out. I talked to some ppl from Alpine and they said that the newer models actually access mp3s much faster than last years models. Lemme know how you like since I won't get mine installed till next weekend.
