Head unit options


Recommended Posts

Ok....

 

so im looking for a new head unit for the install.

 

needs to have 3 RCA outs.

Single din

 

apart from that im open to suggestions.

 

I listen to the radio a lot and have a large collection of music on my Iphone (Iphone 5 so has the lightning connection)

 

not sure what else i really need, its very nice having all the latest gadgets on a head unit but tbh i dont think id use them.

 

maybe blue tooth as i dont think there are head units out atm with Lightning connectivity for my iphone.

 

Not fussed on make, so let me know what you have or what youve seen.

 

dont want to spend a mortgage payment either. maybe £200

My advice - get a head unit that is also DAB enabled..... You'll regret it if you don't...:wink:

 

I have this one in my ZX - but with the optional Bluetooth unit added - and I am very pleased with it:

Very good DAB reception; works well with music stored on an 8g USB stick and the hands free phone addition is very handy!!

I have something to say............ It's better to burn out than to fade away..... :tt2:

Jesus the bluetooth bit is just as must as the head unit lol......

 

Does look like a good unit though, but alas it only has 1 RCA out :(

 

Is it...???

 

I bought the whole lot back in May 2011 - head unit, DAB aerial and Bluetooth kit for about £170... And the head unit was brand new on the market back then!!

 

There is an upgraded model out now, I believe - that might have the 3 RCA outs you require!

No blue tooth on the Sony tho

 

Exactly - no point not having it for the little extra it will cost to be able to answer your phone hands free on the move.....
