Could you please help me to choose the best android car head unit to buy?

My requirement to:
-have the head unit support OBD2 over bluetooth and work with Torque App
-The head unit should have 4 preouts (Front and Back Left & Right) and 1 subwoofer RCA + it should produce a good clear sound quality
-The android unit should have the latest android firmware available such as 4.2 or up
-The headunit should have good software/firmware support and updates
-Optionally The head unit should be able to get rooted

I have found some of the headunits below:

after reading the posts for both hui fei and an-21u I have settled my mind to buy a hui fei based model (1.6 ghz android 4.2.2) so i will buy either

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Universal-An...item5d4c6dd9e7

or

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-Din-6-2-HD...item5d4c6decf4

but i am afraid that maybe these 2 units will not support 4 audio preouts, could someone explain if they support it or suggest me another 1.6ghz based model that supports it?

Pretty certain they are Huifei units, if they are they should have 4 pre-outs plus sub pre out (voltage = 3V). Best to email the seller to double check though.

I found also this unit with a great price and the photo shows it has all the 4 preouts, but I am not confident to buy from aliexpress I am used to ebay

Ebay is ****e as well - I bought an Android tv box from them which lasted 2 months then stopped working and they told me to go away, despite toally breaking uk law, I m now going to have to take the b*st*rds to court.

Best thing is to buy using your credit card (NOT paypal) then you are covered, so doesnt matter where you buy from then (apart from ebay using Paypal as Paypal will take any refund your credit card gives you back out of your bank account)
