Default Head Unit below 5k

Guys Suggest me a good HU below 5k
I don't need any Bluetooth , USB or Aux ( as am happy running mp3, wma or audio disc)

But there should be no compromise on SQ & should have decent equaliser + sub setting ..
If possible i need 3 RCA out..

I have stand by option of 5950 which is installed in other car which for time being i don't want to touch ..

chiragh yaar. please do not buy a 5k HU for your setup. please make sure you spend well on a good HU. 5K HU will no doubt be better than your existing sony, but dont expect too much of a difference. id say, get a kenwood 5039 atleast!!!!!!! or a pio 5050UB

4050 comes for around 5k. But why you want to go in for such HUs?

I would disagree with you here Frank.

Classic example of my friend:
Bought an all Sony setup. On my recommendation changed his rear speakers to GTO 937 / 4" JBL GTO after he knocked his Sony 6x9 and 4". As he bought everything in grey (gray) his HU stopped reading CDS after a while. He though of changing the HU. Budget was 3-4K. Changed the HU to JVC. His speakers started sounding better.

The he buys a new car shifts his Santro setup to the new car. After sometime ICE bug bites him he goes and buy the same equipment for Santro:

4" JBL
GTO 937
Desi Alpine Amp
But this time he buys a Kenny HU 5039. The system sounds way better than before and the only change was HU. But now he is thinking of changing the HU to Pio as he doesn't like the display and confusing menu options in Kenny and i would agree with him on that.

Will update as soon as he gets a Pio HU.

Your options for sub 5K HU''s are:
1. JVC KDG 735
2. Kenny 5039
3. Pio 4050
4. Panasonic

Chirag i hope you are coming to the meet this Sunday. Why don't you audition some HU's JVC, Kenny, Pio there and decide.
