Headunit - recommendations? (cheap/basic, but good audio)
what do people here recommend as a cheap/basic headunit used primarily to just run the audio in from their carpc - needs to be of high sound quality!
i don't want any features really - mp3 cd player and radio, maybe, if i don't want to use the carpc. will need 4 channel preout to go to an amp, and 2-channel in from the carpc (at rear).
what are the differences between the cheap and the more expensive alpine units in terms of sound quality? will i regret buying the cheapest alpine unit - does it sound worse?
(p.s. i've searched and not found much about this, sorry if it's been answered before. and yes, at the moment i am running my sound card directly to the amp which works fine, but i wish to run it through a headunit!)
