    Default Which of these stereos should I get?

    I've decided to get a new stereo for my Vectra, and I've decided to go for a Double Din system (NOT the sat nav/DVD style)


    I've picked the following 2, and I'm not sure which one to go for...
    JVC XG701 - Double Din


    Kenwood DPX303/313 Double Din


    Both average about £150

    What do you guys think?
    Any advise?

    Both have pretty much exactly the same specification, so I'm not bothered which one I eventually choose, I was just wondering what other people thought of the actual stereo looks.
    Cheers

    The Kenwood has the looks! but I have had 3 JVC'S and all have sounded great, if you have demoed both and quality is similar I would take the Kevwood "sorry Kenwood"

    Although already the JVC is growing on me - I now see your dilemma sorry I have been of no help!

    For me, it's got to be the Kenwood. It looks more in keeping with the Vec's dash. They sound good too.

    I've had 2 so far, and I'm going for a change.
    I just want a decent standard stereo, but in Double Din format.

    OK,
    I've decided to get the Kenwood, but now I'm wondering what steering control adaptors I should be getting?


    Will the stereo plug straight into the car loom, or will I need to get the adaptor (PC99-X45)?
    Also I want to get the streering control adaptor to go with it.

    Will I need the PC99-KEN or PC99-KEN-DIS
    Also, will the steering adaptor only work if I get the PC99-X45?

    Kenwood now own JVC so your buying the same headunit only with a different face. If you can live wih ipod and radio only Alpine have a new one out atm. Far nicer to look at and prob sounds a lot better too
