Default HU Question

Was planning to get a new HU. Budget is cheap 6K.
Asked 3 guys, all of them quoted :

Pioneer 5950 - 5K
Pioneer 2050 - 3.8K (said its new, 2990's been discontinued now??)
JVC KD-G635 - 4.6 - 4.8K
(got USB)

None of these guys willing to give me B&W, they arent stolen although, lot of guys getting HU's installed. But 'twas thinking are these legit?
Read somewhere the Pioneer 5950 HU is for around 8K? And a lot of fakes in the market too.

Advise.

these are grey market goods, they are legit and not stolen.

Sir Audio is very subjective. What you like other might not. Like you feel NAD is sad. So I think lots of people don't prefer blau due to it features less and costly price.

Hehe the blau is the stock headunit that comes from factory in a cedia. Thats why I was wondering. Anyway the thread creator cleared it up.
