for Crutchfield, got my JVC for less than $60 and am wholly satisfied. Super easy install with the free wiring harness and adapter plate. I called their rep and told the nice lady what I wanted and she said "try this and if you don't like, send it back"....

I’ve got a $20 dual head unit and I haven’t had a problem with it. It’s not fancy. Am/fm/bt/aux. no cd.
Had it for two years now. Pulled it out my previous vehicle.
It’s low power though so you can’t get loud without an amp but I’ve had all my speakers on amps since the start.

Need a professional opinion on this.
I called up Crutchfield and my advisor Nemo ( yes I found Nemo) sugested this. https://www.crutchfield.com/p_113BT2...DC-BT272U.html
I told him what I was looking for
I need something that is Bluetooth
I am going to delete my Antenna ( I just donít like having it and with Bluetooth I wonít need it) Also I listen to more AM than FM and get lousy reception with the antenna.
I will be able to run everything from my phone I.E. AM/FM , Music
Am I missing anything?

That would work just fine if you are using your phone for everything else, just need to get the wiring harness adapter and remember you have to run a ground wire to a good ground point on the dash

Kenwood's are fantastic! Obviously you will get zero am/fm reception without an antenna, but I am with you, I never listen to it anyway either. If you still have to OEM radio, you will need a dash kit and wiring harness as well. I think Crutchfield sends those with the radio for free sometimes, but make sure. As for the ground, you will need to run your own ground. Take the black wire on the new radio, and hook it to the metal subframe in the dash somewhere. You can either use a pre-existing screw, or make your own with a self tapper. Super easy.
