    Damnit, looks like I'll have to spend even more money. Are there any other good cheap (~$150) cd players out there with AUX inputs? I wasnt planning on getting one at all... I guess i could get some cash for the one i have in there. Does anyone know how much i could expect to sell a Premier DEH-36 (on ebay) for? Heres a link: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/premier/deh-36.htm

    Thanks.

    try: www.audio-warehouse.com
    They have a variety of aiwas at good prices.. in their "closeout" area they also have the best aiwa cd player for $170- full flap detachable face cd player, multicolor display.. all the good stuff.. and the other cd players they have some for $150, $180, $200, and $250 (the $250 one is in closeout area for 170)...
    Also cassette decks ::
    $110, $120, $140, $160, $190.

    of course they all have inputs..

    my 8 cents.

    Well I'll just put my two cents in worth here. Ive never owned or really had much to do with a Pioneer head unit, and I assume they are excelent units. As for Aiwa I have a CDZ-106 head with the front aux in. I would have preferred a rear input but I didnt have the cash. My Aiwa is excelent I have never had a problem with it and the sound quality is excelent. I also love the interface. Its very efficient and understated. Clean with style. The buttons feel ok, Id like to have a little more of a 'click' in them but I can deal with it. As for Bass response it outputs nice tight bass unless you use the H-BASS feature which then boosts the bass to an ungodly booming level. The head unit does not distort until you reach about 80% of the total volume...and its LOUD there. Ive got it pushing two JBL 6 1/2's and two Pioneer 6x9's. Well theres my review if you have any more questions feel free to ask.

    Wow, looks like i may have a new winner. They are even selling the new model pioneer for $160, and i was bout to pay $160 for a much cheaper one. I guess ill get the Aiwa now, its got so much more features...
    + I can't afford (well, dont want to spend) the $40 for that adapter on the pioneer. It seems stupid when they could have put one on the unit for a grand total of 25 cents at the factory.

    THanks.

    It's all about the money...that's why they don't just incorporate it into the unit.

    Well, I dont know if this will have any affect on your choice. But, I got my Pioneer <A HREF="http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/Car_2000/deh-p4100.htm">DEH-P4100</a> yesterday and god damn it kicks major arse! I got the CD-RB10 auxiliary connector a long time ago so I was all set.. Just tellin ya.. If ya go with this deck or any Pioneer P-series for that matter, you WON'T be disappointed. The deck ran me $230 with shipping from <A HREF="http://www.thezeb.com/">TheZEB.</A> And I think the CD-RB10 ran me $40 from <A HREF="http://www.crutchfield.com/">Crutchfield.</A> GL on your choice, in the end, you will be happy with whatever you decide on.
