Trying to find a clean looking car head unit

I'm trying to find a clean head unit. None of that ****ty looking plastic chrome stuff, and no silly like blue colors. I have a 94 miata (1.65 din) so single din units only. I really wanted to get a kenwood x794 but the ebay seller who is the only one that is selling them that I can find now has a dispute filed from me. I listen to the radio mostly, so as much as I love Nakamichi's look and how they sound they're not for me because their radio reception is terrible. I'm looking for a 200 dollar unit though under or over is fine if its worth it. Which means, a 1200 dollar McIntosh is also out unfortunately, same with a 1000 dollar Becker. Lightness is a plus which is why I'm not just trying to find another factory radio with a working volume knob.

I think it was Kenwood that used to make the Chameleon head unit, it was smooth and flat until you powered it up and the lights came thru. That was several years ago so i would imagine there is something newer out. I recommend anything by Alpine, they are not overly flashy and gaudy and arecthe best quality IMO.

all the new alpines are following the hideous trend now. They're certainly not as bad as sony or dual. But they all have the fake chrome and silly color lights everywhere. The main things I want to avoid are the fake chrome/silver, the silly colored lights, and blobby shapes (like a lot of the clarion units)
