          I've seen them on mouser and digikey - I'm 99% sure they are still made. You have to dig deep into "LED indicators"

          PS get some tint on that chinesse voltmeter. It looks unreadable. Oh, and install a fuse while you're at it. ;) They aren't ment to deal with car's voltage spikes, and load dumps.

              Crutchfield claims the 80prs wont fit because its too deep, but seeing that you have it installed I may have to buy it now! Im a long time Pioneer fan, but Ive also been considering the Kenwood KDC-X998 http://www.crutchfield.com/p_113KDCX...-KDC-X998.html

                yeah I saw that prior to purchasing....and was weary myself. It does stick it a tad, but not enough (and I'm super OCD) that it bothers me.

                  I like the matte surround.

                  I ended up buying this. Cant wait to install.

                    ahhhh that looks awesome. I'm sure it will perform great!

                    as far as the matte surround, mine came glossy/shiny. I prepped & painted it w/ SEM trim paint. Blends WAYYY better.

                      Good to know I was going to use that SEM trim paint on my chrome window surrounds anyway good to know I can do the radio surround as well.

                          None of them have more than 2 pairs of pre-amp outputs, and the ones they do have are only 2v. Pass.
                          For those looking, the new 2015/16 Blaupunkt offerings have 5 channels of 4V pre-outs with a F, R, mono Sub configuration.

                          They do lose the rear USB input, however.

                            Sure would like blowchunks to get their act together... Multicolor display, matte black finish, and just a few little tweaks would make that deck just awesome.

                            I read the manual online, seems it has the ability to "mix" two sources, called something like "Aux mix". I'd like to see what that feature is, might be really cool...or just another stupid stunt.

                            I also would like to see them bring back their old "FIX VOLUME" trick, whatever you set it at is the volume it goes to when you power it up, no matter what it was when you shut it off.

                            Closing SOON!

                              I had a unit that did something similar. What I would prefer is a soft return, so that it fades up to the volume it was at.

                                Here is my temporary setup. It's not fantastic but it does the job for now. Certainly looks better then the sony HU the car came with.

                                It's a 3.5mm jack and power switch, wired to a 10 amp, 12v -> 24v step up DC-DC regulator along with a small Class-D amplifier board. These are both jammed behind the faceplate (on top of the climate control unit).
