stay away from sony's...they're just no good, esp. if you're willing to spend up to $400. You should definitely look into the Alpines. I think the cda-7894 would work nicely and it's got alot of nice features...and I also think you can switch the illumination from green to amber (not positive on this one). Also since it's last years model I've heard many places may be discounting it to make room for the new alpines. And the new Alpine, I think it's the cda-9813 is pretty nice and it's got a built in eq and nicer x-overs than the 7894....but it has blue illumination and will probably be more expensive than the 7894, which is still an awesome unit.

If you don't go with alpine, I'd also suggest looking into the kenwood excellon decks...they're also pretty nice and the mp3 load time is on par with the alpine.

The pioneers are a good value too, especially if you can get them at discount...but I hear the mp3 load time isn't nearly as fast as the alpines and kenwoods.

Those are basically the top 3 I think in terms of sq, features, and mp3 ability. Just make sure to avoid sony and aiwa because both of them suck.

Oh, well why didn't you say so? If it's just a temp then buy the cheapest one. Of course...if you treat it well, you could probably re-sell one of those nicer units for a lot closer to the price you paid then you could with a sony or aiwa, making the cost negligible.

And if you're actually getting a discount on the pioneers you could probably sell it back for the same amount you paid for it and basically get a free cd player while you wait. This depends on the discount of course...but the fact that it came from best buy and carries a full warranty would be a good selling point that would enable you to sell if for more than you could if you bought it off ebay.

thats what i was thinking but it might take a few months before the TVs come in and i can afford them and i didnt want to be stuck with crappy sound till then, i luv sound and music and bass... if it sounds bad :angry:

ok

sony sucks when it comes to amps and other stuff, but I have had two sony HU's and loved em both, i have a sony cdx mp70 that i got for 380 currently.

great mp3 player. clean it once a week and i have no skipping problems, even lowered on sportlines with 600 W going to 2 10" infiniti's on dirt roads

if you don't clean it once a week then it will skip all the damn time.

also gives me great control over my subs, xovers, and eq,, all from the same remote.

the deck lists at like 569.00 but if you shop around and do some internet comparison shopping you can negotiate a local dealer down to 3-4 hundred like you want.

it has been in the car about 9 months yet
