New help choosing a new head unit

Current setup is Dynaudio component speakers, paired with a JL 8w7 sub, powered by JL HD900 amp, and still running on factory head unit so I really think that this is my next step. Currently leaning towards Pioneer 4500 NEX, but would like to hear what everyone has to say. My main concern is sound quality and features iam looking for in order of importance are double din, wireless Apple CarPlay, CD/DVD player, and literally that’s it. Any input is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

DEH-80PRS would be a better choice in terms of sound quality. It has higher voltage pre outs, and a better DAC and EQ options.

Great choice in component speakers and subwoofer (not saying that just because I used the same). The aforementioned DEH-80PRS is a great unit; however, it is not double-din unfortunately.

I don't have enough experience with double-din sound quality decks to recommend a specific model since most of my recommendations would be single-din as well.
