Default Help in Buying a basic head unit in USA for <130$

Hi,
I am looking to buy a basic headunit, in USA, - with USB+IPOD connectivity for a Swift. Not very keen on Bluetooth/Sat radio/etc.

Budget is about less than 100-130$. From the below list I am kind of inclined towards Pioneer, request the gurus and fellow bhpians to take a look and let me know their thoughts/suggestions.

Pioneer DEH-2200UB CD Receiver with iPod Direct Control and USB Input>> 102$

Pioneer DEHP3100UB SCD Receiver with USB control and LCD>>125$

Try JVC KD-AHD59. IMO It has a Burr Brown DAC

Considering you planning to use the player in India (If not then ignore what is written below)

I think for the budget you looking at you can buy a player in Indian Grey market and get the almost same Value for Money as USA, Any way, you will not be able to claim warranty at a cost effective way if you buy it there.

Some new JVC or Kenwood players have come out in India which are good VFM for getting 2 years official warranty too along.

Thanks for your inputs blueraven316 & Piyush_Vroom.

After doing some price checking back in India I felt its def worth buying it there, specially for my price range,with the warranty.

Thanks again.
