    Can I throw a spanner in the works and suggest a Kenwood KDC-PSW9527. Very, very nice unit! You can start small with just the HU then add others parts later, eg shuttle or Music Keg, etc.

    Otherwise, if you don't like Kenwood then Alpine is also excellent!

    I had the same criterea for my head unit, bought a Alpine MP3 HU and now I am not going to bother with a changer. 150+ tracks on a CD at high quality. It's fantastic!

    Whats the budget?

    The Pioneer DEHP77MP is a top unit for sound quality. Plays CDs and MP3; also very stylish and subtle looking. If you want DAB then Blaupunkt Woodstock are a good buy too.

    Despite not wanting CDs lying around, i'd still reccomend a Nakamichi- you'll never look back, truly astonishing!

    Each make has its own sound so always listen to a few.

    If you want MP3, then definatly Kenwood or Alpine, i don't know now but a couple of years ago ice mags said Kenwood had the best mp3 sound reproduction. I have the psw9521, which isn't that different from the one audi5e recommended, and its brilliant. But i reckon if i was buying one now i would go for a alpine mp3 HU. Possibly an ipod as well, i have heard the new alpine hu have the connections for a ipod.

    for that sort of money you can get a wicked Alpine mp3 unit. Check out http://www.cel-direct.com/shop1.asp?s_page=mp31.asp i would go with the alpine CDA-9835R, on page 7.
