    You won't regret that purchase, Ian. Solid headunit.

I wish there was something out there other than the Elev8 and the unknown Chinese units, but at least from my research the Kenwood should be a good buy, it has a great screen, UI, plays pretty much anything you throw at it and has no problems with large SSD's attached. Looked at the newer 9906 unit, but I could not justify the extra expense for no real gain. Also, Newegg currently have the 9905 with a $100 discount, so that helped!

    I'll feel a little sad at removing the tablet, it has been great for the years I had it, not only did it work incredibly well but it was also a fun project.
    I've always like Kenwood for car audio (their home audio not so much...). I've always bought their Excelon line the two or three head units I've had in the past. If I go with another one for the Lexus, it'll most likely be the DDX9906XR. I'll probably just run it through the stock amp and speakers for a while until I figure out exactly what I'm going to do with the system.
