Need some help choosing a new Head Unit

As the tittle says i need some help choosing a new cd player. I was thinking about putting the factory h/u back in. I have 2 12 rocksford fosgates and a 300 wat amp waitting to be put in. Some channels fried in my cd player. I wanna spend about 200.00 on my cd player or a little less. Anyone got some good suggestions. I have pioneer 6x8s in all corners.

If you use an I-pod I would suggest Alpine they have a couple units around your price range and the ease of use of the alpine with a I-Pod is amazing! I have a 9887.
