At least you can replace your head unit. I am stuck adding a stand alone head unit like my Kenwood excelon DNX995S, or keeping it a little more simple and running an android tablet that will handle the music files I have (like 130 gigs of FLAC). I mean, I can understand why they didn't put a CD player in the Si, but damn, not giving me a way to play lossless audio is a slap in the face to an audiophile....especially when you can't even swap out the stock head unit. I will probably go the tablet route and use a nice DSP to get quality sound. If you're on FB, check out "Car Audio DSPs and Tablet Tuners" group. My buddy helps run that group....you can geek out there forever.100% agree with everything you said! I've been slowly upgrading the sound system with Pioneer speakers (TS Z65CH). Still deciding what I want to put in the back rack. But, I'm in the market for a new head unit, and I love the cheap aftermarket ones like the Phoenix and this new one that just came out (link) & (YoutubeLink). But, people all over the forums say they're sketchy and BS, but most have never actually owned one of those units. However, I recently purchased the Pioneer AVIC-W8400NEX, the thing was ugly and didn't even fit the mount they included. Honestly, it's 2018 almost 2019 why haven't these companies made aesthetically appealing head units with full Android Auto and Apple Car Play wireless connectivity. Man, this shit boils my blood... If they just merged the tech of the high-end aftermarkets with the "sketchy" screens and design of the off-brand... man... that'd be perfect
