Alpine CDA-9811 has all the features you listed and at $330 retail it is a little over your budget but can probably be found online for less. It is probably about the only thing that will fit your wishlist for features with the budget you have.

Or you can go with Alpine's last years model CDA-7894. You may be able to find it cheaper than the 9811. I have the 7894 and it rocks!! It has everything you need plus some extra features.

I was looking at the Alpine's, but does Pioneer make any that meets my specification's within my price range. (I just wanted to keep my options open)

The only pioneer ones I saw that had both MP3/WMA support and 4V preouts didn't have time alignment for anything close to your price range. Again that is MSRP, what you may be able to find on online may be much cheaper. I would just check out the different manufacturers websites and browse the different models. Some have the feature sets packaged differently.

I recently bought the Alpine 9807, which I think has all the features you want, for $269 on-sale. Excellent unit.
