    I like kenwood but 2 expensive and I really don't need a super high quality system just one that will run my stock speakers good.

    Hey there,

    the Pioneers tend to be a little bit better of a unit, better bang for your buck. The Sony though has a little bit better looking UI and button layout.

    My advice is to get one with the ipod plug in in the back... I've had both and at first I thought I wouldn't mind having it in the front, but it looks so much cleaner with my ipod in the glovebox. Also it's less attractive to steal that way and you can leave an old ipod with your music in there and just forget about it while always having your music plugged in.

    Also 100% personal opinion but I've had 2 sonys and 4 pioneers and a couple kenwoods, I will probably only buy pioneer from here on out. I hear great things about some alpine units as well but I haven't had a pioneer product that I haven't loved once I figured out the controls.

    the pioneer avh-p4300dvd is a good deck, but Bluetooth isn't built in though. they do have it as an add on though

    And I've had Sony, Pioneer, Alpine, JVC and Clarion - I probably wouldn't buy other than Alpine or Pioneer without a bunch of long term sterling reviews.
