Replacement of OEM radio/cd player

I am a new owner of 2005 Focus ZX3 hatchback... I love my car, but the radio really sucks.

Because I listen to AM quite a bit, I think I need to upgrade to HD... I like the idea of USB interface on the front panel for charging my golf gps devices and the front aux input would work fine for my ONE apple product, an iPod that I was given for Christmas. Any of that other apple stuff doesn't do a thing for me.

Recommendations for a decent hd radio / cd player ($150 or less) would be appreciated, and perhaps the install kit. I understand electronics pretty well so wiring the thing up would be less hassle than the install kit to fill the huge 3 story gap in the middle of my dash (3 din?).

Also, the current system sounds like it has a sub in it, but I could not tell you where it might be located.

Any hints for audio upgrades would be appreciated ;-)

Thanks -
