Spend the extra money on an alpine with MX (Media Expander)

It really brings the music to life, and it replaces the missing parts of sound frequencies cut off in MP3 files. thumbsup

If you listen to MP3's, the reason the files are so small is because the MP3 format chops parts from the audible hearing frequency (20 Hz - 20 kHz.)

If you have good hearing, as many people do, you can tell the music is missing something. Media expander replaces the missing frequencies.

It has nothing to do with time delay, nate rofl

true, but I don't like luggin around a crap load of CD's.

an MP3 cd at 192 KHz with media expander sounds the same as a CD, and I only have one CD full of over 100 songs

I also have the stock speakers, so there isn't much quality to the music, it sounds decent. I spend my money on home stereo stuff, because around here, subs, TVs, stuff like that in my car would get stolen, since my car sits outside all night. thumbsdown

So its Panasonic or Alpine. I'm having a little trouble with the Alpine units $250 to $500 for a cd player seems a bit much. I would rather keep the headunit cost under $200.

Check this site out for some great deals on head units and speakers. Personally I think Pioneer puts out the best sound quality. Good luck with whatever you choose.

Etronics is the shit, price leader so far and a far better selection than Crutchfield or Sound Domain.
Etronics prices are so good I think I'll upgrade buy a model or two.

Thanks for the help guys. thumbsup

Looks like I'm going to get my speakers and headunit from Etronics and the install parts from Crutchfield.

Cruthchfield wants $100 more for the Panasonic than Etronics, crazy. spineyes
