some of the new kenwoods are actually really good in terms of sq and reliability, but i'd still go for an alpine or a blaupunkt

Well, Either brand you choose, you want the LEAST ammount of THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) The MOST ammount of SN (Signal to Noise ratio) and if you listen to the radio alot, you want the highest sensitivity radio sensor you can get (Better reception) A wide frequency response may help but dont rely on that too much. (you wont hear anything below 20 hz (only feel it with a GOOD subwoofer) and you wont ever really encounter much above 20,000 hz because cd's sample at 44,100 hz and are only capable of producing really bad high frequencies at half that. (mp3's sound worse as the audio specrum is GREATLY reduced than standard CD)
What I look for in a brand is reliability and quality. When I'm choosing equipment, I look at specs.
If I had to say a brand, go alpine, if you have the cash, and back it up with a really nice amplifier.

ok, when picking a HU you have two choices. Alpine or Eclipse. Both are easy to use, provide the best SQ and all around use. their hi end models can be pricey but hit up ebay man.
