    My Kenwood Mask stereo has just packed up and wondering what the best stereo you guys have had experience with that will suit the Seat Leon dash? I want an MP3 player with 50w x4b minimum, needs to have pre outs and i want to be able to fine tune base, mids and treble.. Throw your opinions at me :lol:

    Have a look at Alpine's range, which also have decent quality DACs that make a good job of ALAC and FLAC playback.

    Apline Ida x100

    Suits really well, great kit and usually go for about £100 on the bay.

    The Alpine iDA-X305 or X305s is the best I've seen by a long way, and it is the best H/U I've ever used.

    I'd have another one without question if I didn't have a double-din dash now.

    If you are an iphone sheep the alpines are good, but once you realise better phones are out there, there is no need for an alpine :D

    I like the Becker LEE, a nice OEM look to it, are they still available as I think I remember seeing yours before and researching it, only to find it was discontinued and very expensive from German eBay?

    Is that the case, or am I thinking of another unit?

    Also, which model is yours again please?

    Cheers

    Another +1 for Becker from me:

    [​IMG]

    Plays MP3s on a CD and has aux in.
    Front, rear and sub preouts, all levels adjustable from head unit.
    Also Bluetooth connectivity for a mobile.

    Great Head Unit.
