Smile Newbie HU advice required.

Hi all,

I have just purchased my first car and plan to put a nice music system in the car. My budget for the HU is 200-300.

Need opinion regarding which head unit to get.

Here are my main requirements.

Good sound quality.

Bluetooth and USB connectivity for hands free calling and MP3 playback (A2DP profile would be bonus but not a deal breaker). Good voice quality on hands free calling.

Good response.(I have heard some unit become very unresponsive when you attach USB stick)

Preferably high pre-outs, so as to avoid noise issues when I attach an amp in a few months time. (2 Preouts atleast, for front speakers and Sub. 3 would be nice but I dont think I will be using an amp for the rear speakers.).

Have looked at Kenwood, Alpine, JVC, Pioneer and Clarion and Now I am totally confused as to which system to get.

Any Help Would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Jay
