    New Head Unit Recommandation

    I have a 2004 Saturn Vue with stock radio. It doesnt have cd changer or aux input. So I am looking for a new Head Unit.

    First Off I am not an audiophile. Stock radio was fine for me (probably crappy for a lot of others though). It just didnt have a aux input.

    Since I am on a budget I would prefer not having any amp and just running the PC to the head unit.

    I ruled out a fm transmitter because of many reasons, most of them enumerated in this forum.

    I have a VIA EPIA MII 12000 motherboard and would like to use onboard sound unless this proves impossible or too crappy for even my basic expectations.

    So, can anyone recommend an entry level head unit that would accomplish this?

    Here's a pretty good one.

    Not sure what kind of aux input it has, but I'm assuming it's a headphone jack type.

    EDIT: Yup, just confirmed on Pioneer's website.

    All Pioneers with a P in the name can use an IP-bus input adapter. EX: DEH-P7300

    Shadow: Uncommonly enough, this unit DOES have a 3.5" Aux-Input jack right on the back of the unit. No need for the usual IP-Bus adapter.

    Actually, pretty common for the Premier line of Pioneer decks. But as far as other decks, yes very uncommon. I saw an audiovox HU once with aux in headphone jack on the front... that's about it.

    He never said it was a Premier and I didn't click any of the links so I assumed it was a regular ol' Pioneer
