Single din, 7" touchscreen, NOT Dynavin... Power Acoustik?

Hi guys,

I've tired of my Dynavin, after doing some testing with a different source in my stereo I've confirmed that the Dynavin is seriously limiting my system so I've been looking for a replacement and came across this...

I know... its "Power Acoustik" which is far from the industry leading brands, and I've never seen or heard one of their units IRL... but atleast they've got products worth showing at the electronics shows (and they bother to show up as well).

The main features that I noticed (and are the selling point to me) were that

It is a Single-DIN, with the unit occupying the upper DIN slot, whilst still providing a 7" screen that would normally only be found on double-Din units.

It supplies all the features that a Dynavin does (bluetooth, Nav etc), but provides somewhat acceptable sound quality features: 4v preamp outputs, 3 sets RCA's, seperate Sub-channel controls from the head unit as well.

On the 7002 model, there is 3 UI's, and atleast one of them looks acceptablehttp://www.farenheitusa.com/IMAGE/radiant.png. On the Wince Ingenix model, you can apparently install your own background (because that skull background sure is fugly).

Has anyone seen or had any experience with this Power Acoustik brand? Are they as cheap as their brand name suggests?

I am not a brand snob, but I was looking to get something with reputable quality ie. Alpine, Pioneer, Kenwood, Clarion, JVC etc. but none of them make a single din, touchscreen flip down (or single din oversized as they are calling these).

Am I jumping out of the pot and into the fire, by selling the Dynavin due to its quality, and then buying one of these Power Acoustik units? I mean their website looks like it was put together by a teenager, and I've heard nothing about these units before...
