Head Unit: Sony/Panasonic?
All I need to finish my project is a head unit that has an aux input in the rear. I took my entire dash from my '99 Grand Am and reformed it. I removed the old radio(stupid delco) and put a 7" Lilliput with a spot for my new head unit right below it and moved down the HVAC controllers down to where the storage part was originally. Thing is I now need the head unit to create the sound to my car speakers. I don't really care if this head unit plays MP3's(obviously) or has XM satellite or anything creative like that stuff. The problem the head units I find all come with most of that stuff and I was just wondering if I could drive the price down a little bit without all of that stuff.
All I want is a simple head unit with an aux input.
I found these on cardomain.com:
~ $160 Sony CDX-F5710 (cheapest on my wallet)
~ $205 Sony CDX-F7715X (I like this black color, accents my dash good)
~ $190 Panasonic CQ-C8301U (also a dark color, leaning here)
*Pioneer needs that crappy 30 dollar part to work with aux input
These all offer the rear aux input that I would like to have but from my understanding I would greatly appreciate the Panasonic over the Sony. They would all work but if I could get some suggestions on this I would greatly appreciate it. Even if it is an older HU I could find on ebay it would be a great help!
