I will have finally join the ranks of those with a CD player in their cars. 6 Ave. is selling the Kenwood KDCMP8017 for a dirt cheap price of $199.99 plus shipping (around $11 for US addresses). Check on the right side of their webpage for the "internet deals". The usual price on the internet is $250-$360 for this unit (not sure if it's being phased out, but the reviews are very good for this model). The feature that sold me on the deck was the MP3 playback capability. The only drawbacks I've heard is that there's a delay between playing MP3 tracks, and you can only do random play within directories of MP3s, but that's not too big a deal for me who's been hobbling along with a tape deck for all these years. It'll read CD/CD-R/CD-RW, and has 22W/ch (4 channels). The faceplate can be removed, or rotated to look like it's been removed. Hopefully I'll get it early next week. Can't wait to start making some CD-RWs with over 140 songs on them! I had to phone my order in, but the CSR was nice enough to include a wire harness for $10.
