Retro looking unit for splitscreen bus - recommendations


As per the heading, what have people used for a good retro looking head unit in a split screen? We have one, but with no entertainment and my wife would like it to retain the classic look but have some good music.
Recommendations would be good, pictures too if you could 😊

Doesn't look too bad, but no USB, CD or iPod connections - so no tunes for the kids or if you are out of FM range. Anyone else got any that are in their rides that they are proud of?

Ta Hellbus and Splitbus,

its for Jay in her new Bus ;)
have looked at Retrosound and the USA-630s as well. Both at from over here, so we would be buying it here in the US and bringing them home with us to Aust. That's a warranty question straight away, but had also heard a mixed experience to Retrosound (from other threads on here as well) so am a little cautious of them unless the ones who spoke up were the minority, and there is a lot of folk who have had no worries with them. That's why I put it out there.
Also looking at a UK mob, am over there next week for a week or so.
Cheers
