Listen to Pio, Sony, and Blaupunkt on the SQ front also look at Kenwood, Clarion and the cheaper Alpines. I understand the Alpine 9843 sells for under 10K (it has only 1 pre out).

you can plug and play songs directly from the USB. The pioneers have this as well now.

Yep. You can directly plug-in a pendrive and play the songs off it.

In the case of Sony, some models have memory in the faceplate itself, and the data needs to be copied onto the faceplate (from your computer), and then played off it.

If you are fine with Pioneer then I would suggest go for Pioneer only.Pioneer has a decent output and You will missout on OEL display, If you dont go for pioneer. Since you were using 6850 I would suggest you go for 7950UB or 6950IB. I dont know much diff bw two except 79-- has a autoslide feature while the other one is manual. Both have USB feature. You'll need to confirm the prices for both models.

i still prefer the looks of the 6850 over the 6950. if i had to get a headunit and i didnt really need the USB connectivity i would personally go in for the 6850 instead although its a little older(last years stock)

6850 is still available for about 8.8 - 9.2kgrey but in a month or two it will be replaced by 7950 pricing about 10.2 - 10.8 as for the start..
yesterday i had seen the 6950 it had one extra cable coming from the rear when i asked the dealer he said it is used for the Bluetooth connectivity( I guess he also wasnt sure about that)
