    Thumbs up

    Im all for pioneer. Had two and never had any problems with them. They even repaired one that was damaged in a car rollover under warrenty! I'll stick to them because they are a great unit and i have no problems with them.

    Also looking at the link, you are looking at the DEH-P5200? I own a DEH-P5250 (australian version of the 5200) And it is GREAT! the full flip face makes look brilliant, stacker control, sub control, and every thing else u could need (except for 3xrca pre outs, opnly got 2 :/)

    I have the LX3 and I love it. Easy install, cool remote and the hidden feature is awesome. You can even set the display to "MP3 Player" when using the aux input. I would consider the LX50 also if you have the money.

    Later,

    Well, I bought the Blaupunkt Key Largo and have been substantially impressed by the depth of sound reproduction, even with my less-than-ideal factory speakers.

    I admit I'm a sucker for more European equipment though... demands there are a little different than in the US where often Japanese models fit the "profile" of the average American listener. However, being European myself (born and raised in the UK), I often find a lot of head units lacking somewhere to my tastes (which musically run everything from Mozart and Brahms to some Seattle grunge and more recently Everclear)... but when I first heard a Blau head unit (a Casablanca), I was sold almost immediately.

    I bought the Key Largo simply because in my Japanese car it simply looked... right. The tuner's not as advanced as those in some of the higher-end head units from Blau, but I don't use the tuner much. I do wish the AUX input had RCA connectors though!
