Default Recommended Head Units?

Hey i just sold my truck and i threw in the cd player just as an incentive to get rid of the truck so now i dont have a headunit for my car, it was a piece of crap anyway...
what would you guys recommend for a good HU? If possible i would like to buy it off ebay so i can get it cheaper. But i am thinking spending at most 200 maybe cheaper. What would you recommend? Thanks for the help.

Those are sweet -- but it says for 94 -99 so it wont work for a 92? Those are really cool...
thanks again.
