    So I just got my Evo recently and the stereo is manageable sound quality wise, but I really want an AUX input for my Zune. I've done some quick searching and it seems Alpine makes the best head units for my budget (correct me if I'm wrong) so I was leaning toward getting one off of Cruchfield that was on sale. Are there any particular models that I should look into? The biggest priories I have are 1. Sound quality 2. Aux input really that's it. Also after the head unit what should be my next upgrade if I'm going for increased sound quality, not necessarily loudness/bass. Thanks

    I ended up buying this http://signature.crutchfield.com/s_500CDE103B/Alpine-CDE-103BT.html?tp=27783

    On an impulse after talking to there sales man. He said if I want decent sound quality from an mp3 player, it's much better to put it on a flash and play it that way via USB. So I splurged and got that model. Normally I would have done more research but I have to drive for 9 hours this weekend and I only have one legit CD. :o

    Would that power source still be the next mod you get even with this model or should I get better speakers next now?

    i have not had expirence with the bluetooth unit, because there have not been enough feeback on it yet for us to pick them up... that power pack would be the easiest way to get clean power, and those speakers i posted are a great match.

    It's been around forever (minus some options). It's a sound choice.
