I had a JVC in my 93 205 and it easily fit your requirements. I put a similar one in my new boat. The new one has an iPod cable and, like the old one, reads mp3 from CDs. The ipod version was $130. It has a pair of rca outs and independent sub controls so you can tweak your sound. We've been happy with it.

This one is similarly spec'd.

I just put a Kenwood KMR 700u in my Maristar 230v. Like it so far but still getting used to it. Sound is great, has dry storage and hook up for iPhone / USB device as well as the ability to navigate the files.

Has three sets of pre-outs (Front, rear, and sub) to drive amps. These are located on a hide away unit with a single wire going to the head unit (minimizes congestion under the dash).

So far so good. It was around $200 on ebay (refurb).
