Insted of Jenson (which i havent heard before), i would go in for a blaupunkt gt4 /mk2 which is for around 6-7k.
Its better to go for a tried and tested amp than one which has not been heard of before.

hey guys I wasn’t able to get that offer cos of some shipping restrictions.
But does anybody know if Boss Audio BV9995B is any good?? (retails for $350)
I have not heard of Boss Audio earlier, is it something good? I mainly am getting this for my 2 year old to watch Barney, so am not on the look out for the best. Something economical will do for me.
I was also thinking of getting pre-installed headrests with screens, is this a good idea will there be compatibility issues with the head unit and the screens?? The item I am talking about is this one: XOVision GX1569 (for a pair $ 300).
Thank you for your time.

Hey Navin took your advice and bought this 'nextbase sdv685-am' and all needs met as of now.. nothing great but gets the job done.
Main unit with the DVD player also has a 8.5' screen (installed on the windscreen) and a slave (strapped on to the rear head rest), audio can be connected to car audio system via RCA or via FM. I am using FM right now audio quality aint good but will do, as I plan on moving this from car to car as needed. So this serves the purpose best.
Install time: 5 mins
Cost: $ 350
