The best SQ single din in your opinion

So its 2016 now, wondering what peoples all time favorite SQ single decks are.

For me it would have to be the Pioneer DEH-P880PRS.. I'm looking for something similar maybe a little easier to pick up new/used locally. Preferably 5v preout but 4v minimum, 5 band EQ minimum. And iPod control.

Any suggestions are welcome!

Great deck for sure not sure if I want to spend that much on a HU as of now, though. Still need to plan out the front stage, etc.

The DEH-P880PRS is great looking unit a lot better looking than most of what's out there today. I have the 80PRS and I love it! I also have an alpine CDA-7998 phantom face unit. the only thing its missing is a usb input.

I own an Eclipse Cd8051 and an Eclipse CD8053. The 8053 is supposed to be the better of the decks, but I like the 8051. Both dead head, 8 volt head units. For straight out SQ (and just SQ), you can't beat these decks.

That's the first I've ever heard of any noise problems with Eclipse head units. My 55040, CD8053, and CD8051 were all absolutely noise free. I've been on other forums and cannot recall anyone else complaining of noise problems with their Eclipse decks. Maybe lack of features, but never any SQ problems.
