    Car MP3 player

    Does anyone have any recommendations for any reasonable car CD & MP3 players?

    I'm not bothered about having an über-loud sound system or a massive brand name or anything like that, just something toward the cheap/middle range that can play MP3s on a CD.

    The ability to play stuff direct from CF or SD card would be a bonus, but it's not a necessity.

    Ok, some random guy at a bus stop wearing a pink raincoat and one of those furry Russian hats told me to get this from here:

    He then touched my legs.

    Inappropriate fondling aside, are you agreed that it's a reasonable one from a good store?

    I stuck a kenwood MP3 10 disk changer in the back of one of my cars (has had to come out now for somthing a bit more fun) and it worked realy well. Sound quality was good as with 10 CDs on tap you just rip the lot at 320Kbps.

    I had the older model of this that didn't have the SD or USB sockets , but for the money was pretty nice

    if you have a little more to spend then the pioneer units are very nice. I have a DEH-77 in my 200 I'm very happy with.
