I'm looking for a headunit for my ute as my prestige six stacker head unit doesn't play cd's anymore so could anyone post your opinions on a headunit for under $700

I was looking at a an Alpine CDA-9851 and a JVC KD-LH915 but hey post your opinions on brands and post wat is good on the market.

Depends what you want it for really. I mean if your just going to be running the stock speakers off the headunit, then can you really justify spending $700?
But if your running 5 amps, then your probably going to be wanting one one with more pre-outs and that.

It will be running stock premo speakers and a 220 alpine amp with sub and is JVC any good, if JVC is seen as alright than i would spend less about $500

JVC are allright for entry-lower mid level HU's, but if you've got $700 to spend, something like a Pioneer DEH-P7650MP should be within reach if you shop around

I noticed these guys import on demand from asia. this means that it must clear customs to get into australia and you may or may not be charged import tax and you may or may not have to wait months to get it. It's all a really stupid system and i have heard of disaster stories of products spending 6 months in customs. I can only advise you do your homework first.
