    My 10 year-old Sony CD head unit is dying so I'm in need of an inexpensive but decent CD car receiver to replace it.

    What I'm looking for:
    Must play CD-R audio CDs (CD-RW playback would also be nice)
    Black face-plate (removable would even be better)
    Rotary volume knob
    25W X 4 or better
    At least one set of amp preouts
    MP3 playback would be an added bonus

    As with most purchases, I have a limited budget of no more than $150.00 including tax/shipping.

    So if you have a car CD head unit or you know where I can get my grubby little paws on one, please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Brian

    Brian,

    If the Pioneer unit falls through I have a 2 year old Sony unit that I'll be selling. I think it meets your specs but I'll check this weekend.
