    i went out and bought a new cd player for the truck today. i got a JVC KD-G310 cd/mp3/wma player at Circuit City for $89.99 and a wiring harness and installation kit for $25 at D & B Sales which is a local car audio/tool supply place. heres the link to the deck i bought: JVC KD-G310

    it sounds good for spending about $125 total and im happy :)

    yeah my girlfriend bought me a new Sony Xplode CD player :thumbsup: got it at best buy this morning, I would of started a thread for myself but i figured we can compare the 2 decks for others to see...

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?sk...d=1099389701695

    ^^that's the one she got for me. it has every feature I wanted. MP3/WMA player, sub-pre outs with sub control, and a decent anti-shock system... it was on sale in store for $99.99 and with the 4 year warranty the total was $128.xx. I already have the harnesses so i'm good to go on that.

    :thumbsup: to having new radios

    not a bad deck ya got there B16. i actually looked at that one at Best Buy when i was looking around. i just found it unappealing to look at. looks plain...lol. but functions wise its pretty good. :thumbsup:

    on a side note, the frickin remote for my deck is tiny. heres a pic of it in front of a 12oz can of Pepsi to show you how small it is:

    Dude... that remote is tiny as shit.

    If you compare that thing to my remote, it would look like my remote gave birth to yours.

    Brians deck :thumbsup:

    Since we're on the note of people getting new things... I just purchased a laptop. :ph34r:

    you know something BDN, the plain looking style was more appealing to me. it would make someone think it was a an old cheapo deck. the only thing is mine didn't come with a remote but the manual says it's compatable with any of the other Xplode remotes. my friend has an extra one since he sold his but forgot to give the guy a remote +1 for me, yay!!! :)

    and every single feature is exactly what I wanted :mrgreen:

    BTW-for some reason I can't click on the link to see what deck you got [​IMG]

    James, what kinda Lap Top did you get?

    Do you have a block up popper on? Might be why you can't see the link to his deck.

    Anyway, I got basically the bottom end Laptop. It is a Dell... just like my desktop. (which I haven't seemed to have a whole lot of major problems with)

    Inspiron 2200 Intel® Celeron® M Processor 360 (1.40 GHz/1MB Cache/400MHz FSB)
    LCD Panel 15.0in XGA Display
    Memory 512MB Shared DDR SDRAM, 2 DIMMS
    Hard Drive 40GB 5400rpm Ultra ATA Hard Drive
    Operating System (Office software not included) Genuine Windows® XP Home Edition WHXP
    Network Card Integrated Network Card
    Modem Internal 56K Modem
    Adobe Software Adobe® Acrobat® Reader 6.0
    Combo/DVD+RW Drives 24X CD Burner/DVD Combo Drive 24COMBO
    Wireless Networking Card FREE! Dell 1370 Internal Wireless (802.11b/g, 54Mbps)
    Office Software (not included in Windows XP) No productivity suite- Corel WordPerfect word processor only
    Anti-Virus/Security Suite (Pre-installed) No Security Subscription
    Digital Music Musicmatch by Yahoo!â„¢ Music- Entry level with 90 days of On Demand
    Primary Battery 8-Cell NiMH Primary Battery (43 WHr)


    This isn't in any comparison to my desktop; 2.66ghz, 200gb harddrive, 1gig of ram, 17inch monitor, etc. But it'll suit my needs quite well for what I wanna use it for. I'd like to be able to rip out that 56k modem and sell it then start to personalize it without paying the finance charges on upgrades.

    $627 bucks after the instant 150 rebate, plus they're sending me another 100 dollar rebate with the laptop.

    I just got an Alpine CDA-9847 for my car. Love it :thumbsup:

    $156 shipped from finestdeals on ebay. Shipped quick, nice service.

    • 50W x 4 High Power Amplifier
    • 3 PreOuts (2V)
    • Ready for iPod®
    • Bass Engine
    -Subwoofer Level Control
    -Bass Center Frequency Control
    -Bass Band Width Adjustment
    -Treble Center Frequency Control
    • BBE Processor
    • CD-R/RW Playback
    • MP3/WMA Decoder/Playback
    • MP3 Text Information Display
    • CD Shuttle Control Function
    • QuickSearch Function (MP3 Files)
    • Quad Illumination

    • Versatile-Link™ Ready
    • MaxTune Tuner

    The Rotary encoder buggs at first, but when you get used to it, its actually pretty freakin' cool. MP3 text is cool, they have a nice search function that doesn't interrupt the music until you select the track you are after. It keeps playing while you scroll through the songs. And it didn't come with a remote, but I could give less shit about that. My last two systems came with remotes and I never used either of them.

    I really enjoyed my Pioneer deck. I had it in both my Geo and Escort. When I sold the Escort it stayed with the car.

    Then I got a Kenwood KDC for the Civic, and although I like it quite a bit. I don't like the "fold down face" option of it.

    I've had pioneers in all my cars, watched them come and go. Even the cheapest "base model" DEH-1700 is a damn good reciever.

    I'm still looking for an Alpine CDA-9855 cheap... about $350 shipped is the best I can seem to get.

    [​IMG]

    Anyone want my CDA-7998? It still looks and works 100%- just won't talk to the iPod 100%. Retail on it was $800... so I'm taking any reasonable offers. It's still one of the cleanest decks Alpine ever made. :)

    Ehh, I'm not impressed with Alpine. My Aunt used to work there and build their units out in IN. For the price theres better stuff out there. She sports a Pioneer in her Accord.

    I hate hoe the cut off all of a sudden and come back on. Or they skip when the bass hit(13w7 with 1000/1). Pioneer has the best bang for your buck imo. They look good dont cost that much......depends on the features.

    nice find on your deck DPN's. The last time i spend under 100 bucks on a cd player was in a pawn shop [​IMG]
