Default What's a Good Bluetooth Head Unit for 2005 Forester?

My wife wants a Bluetooth/CD Player head unit in her 2005 Forester. What's a good unit to put in her car? Any suggestions?

If you are looking for the best sound quality... Kenwood Excelon is the way to go. Those head units have the best DACs, the best "tuneability", and have really nice internal amplifiers. Plenty of really clean power output.

If you're looking for bang-for-your-buck, and are less concerned with supreme sound quality, go with a Sony Xplode unit. Still really good head units, but a little cheaper.

I have never been happy with a Pioneer, had lots of issues in the past... and disappointing customer service.

Hope this helps, I've installed several (very HIFI) systems in my Subarus... Not to be pretentious.

Ease of use? Sony XAV-AX1000 has CarPlay, great UI, front USB and Aux, and a volume knob. Looks pretty low key/stock and great sound, decent power too. Less tuning options than the excelon I had before but having a graphic EQ was way easier.
