Ok folks, I'm looking for opinions!!

I want a HU to replace my factory one but it needs to have;
-rca inputs so I can plug in my iRiver directly
-cd
-elec aerial control line
-rca outputs to connect to an amp when i do that in the future.

Anyone know of a beast which is good, reasonable priced and reliable. And nice looking - lets face it, they should look nice.

Im using a Clarion DXZ 525 greg. Its a couple of years old now, so you'd struggle to find many around IMO....

Has all the features listed... notably RCA aux input (you'll find this is not terribly common). Nothing too fancy - CD, tuner, aux... sub/amp output with sub vol control, basic EQ, H/LP filtering... And it looks puurrrrdy with changing colours...

pioneer you can get a rca input for the ip-bus (stacker control) for around $100 or so.

with alpine head units, you can just get a simple cable for around $50 or so, that also plugs into the stacker controller.

and there are a number of headunits that have it natively, but they chop and change with each range every year.

yeah can't say i ever use my stacker, with mp3's there is no need to have a stacker anymore, not to mention the ipod's connect directly with most new hu's, pretty much all the companys are incorporating it
