liquid ice named himself after someone he knews company, my mate had the show 106 for liquid ice (specialists), he had a nakamachi head unit and yeah it wasent flash, it was expensive but it sounded amazing
Think I have heard of Becker from years ago, aret they part of Blaupunkt?
If looking for a HU try and get one that is preamp only. Internal amps arent that good and they cant be a true high powered unit when you see the size of equivalent powered amps. Stuff like the top Nakamichis even come with the DAC seperate just like real home hifi.
I dont really think its worth spunking such a huge amount of money on a stereo for your car. Your going to be driving about with engine noise and road noise so its not like the perfect sound quality from the speakers is going to be perfect when you head it due to all of the background noise. If youre sitting in McDonalds car park then its totally different because there is less background noise but thats just totally ghey.

not if youre like me, and listen to the quality, not the volume
only had one lot of ICE stolen, an thats because it was all on full show
Agree with Bryan as audio should all be about the quality and detail and delivery rather than volume. Hate all those who just add a sub and all you can hear is bass from a mile away.
If you think about it an ICE set up is probably the most cost effective mod you can do as a good one can go with you from car to car. A good one should last and not date.
I probably spend more time listening to music in my car than I do at home so why should my car hifi not be as good as you can get at home.
Best set up should be a HU with pre amp only as you can never get a good sound from these PMPO amps fitted in head units that declare larger outputs than seperate amps twice the HU size. Then get a decent amp and component speakers icnluding crossovers plus money for quality cabling, sound proofing and install costs.
