Default Aftermarket Head Unit

I am looking to get a new head unit for my truck to replace the factory AM/FM in a 1993 F-series. I am not very up to speed on these things. What are some brands to look for in the 150 dollar range?

Things I am looking for are AUX/USB on the front, pre-amp outputs, CD player, and possible expansion to Sirius/XM.

Is HD radio really worth it looking exclusively for it?

Anything else I should know of? I know I will have to upgrade speakers to maximize the sound quality.

Go to your local junk yard. At least the ones around here have decent ones, and you can pick them up for 15-50 bucks. The last new head unit I bought was in 98. Never again will I pay tons of money with there are thousands of new ones sitting in junk yard offices.

It has USB and front aux, dont know about preouts, but do some research. I've always loved my alpines. Not the fanciest, but the quality is good.
