Help me find a HU please :)

I'v been searching for a HU that meets a few certain criteria and I know that if I have more people looking I might get a better selection. Sooo if anybody has a few minutes to give me some suggestions here's what I'm looking for.

It needs to have a Single CD and AUX Input and that is IT. Name brand would be nice, but I'm not going to be too picky. Nothing fancy its going in my trailer so the cheaper the better. Thanks for the help!

I would avoid Best Buy. Have never been impressed w/ the crap they carry. But then you don't sound too particular in what you're after. Price is probably more important in your case..

Were I looking, I'd have a hard time not seriously looking at an Alpine. I went Kenwood for the second time when I got the new truck but am not horribly happy. The biggest thing that bugs me is they got rid of the mute function. Well, they still have it, but you have to use the remote. It's just plain dumb. Meanwhile I'm impressed w/ the Alpines..

Thanks for the advice, I'll see what Alpine has to offer... I'm not to impressed with Best Buy either, but that is where I bought the HU in my truck. I am a big fan of Sony products and I got a good deal from them. I will say one good thing, when my CD player was eating CD's (my fault because of beating it hard and dirt contamination ) they replaced it for free, no questions asked, on the spot, and gave me another 4year warantee... so I cant complain about service.

Pick one of these head units:
Crutchfield linky

I recommend the 9830 or 9833


And this device will give you AUX input.
