Double Din CD/CASS/MP3

I'd like to upgrade my factory stereo and get something that will play MP3's. I'd also like to maintain the ability to listen to a tape occasionally.

I'm leaning towards the Clarion ADB340MP. Does anyone have any experience with with model in particular, or Clarion in general compared to other brands?

I'm comparing this model to a Pioneer FH-P5000MP, and a Kenwood DPX-MP4070. It seems not too many people make a double-din headunit with CD/CASS/MP3. I also thought about getting a single-din cassette receiver that could control an in-dash CD changer, but didn't have much luck finding any in-dash CD changers, let alone ones that will play MP3's.

yup...

But get an amp and subs and you'll easily reach the sound quality you desire

BTW - I would never buy another Clarion unless they have got rid of the REQUIRED $65 "accessory" cable (CeNET)... the cable that is requiered if you want to hook up EACH video/audio IN or OUT or CD Changer or even a TV Tuner to your head unit.
