    That's where I'd be putting my cash. Alpine or Pioneer for decks everything else is generally average.

    cheapest of the alpine range is the w233 which has ipod connectivity but NOT DAB
    w235bt is similar in spec but also has bluetooth enabled so can connect to your phone
    w530bt is next which has a 6.1 inch screen and all the features above
    w535bt is similar in spec but has better features
    ics x 7 this is the first unit to take advantage of the mirror link function on most smartphones and is app based
    w970 is next which has built in navigation and full double din screen
    w920 same but more features
    w925r same as above but WITH DAB
    w928 r has an 8" screen and sat nav built in

    the cheapest unit i can see which has dab and a few of the above features is and sounds o.k
    the jvc kw db60at its £129 at car audio direct at moment
