Default Budget Head Unit ~ Maruti Zen

Guys I would like to know my options in purchasing a head unit that fulfills the following criteria

1. CD player
2. USB
3. Aux in

I cannot go too much above 6k - 7k at the max, so what would be my options?

Currently I have the following speakers:

1. 6x9 Pioneer 300w
2. Lightening Audio 10cm 4" 2-Way Full Range Speaker

Check out Pioneer {5050, 5090, 6050}, Kenwood {6039, 6043, 5539}

JVC & Blaupunkt offer few models that suit your requirement and budget

i think pioneer 3190 mp3 player would be around 6.5 k w b&w. Also there is very small difference nowdays between official and gray market products (only in the entry level models)
