Paging Jason

Hey a little O/T buy my mom wants to put a CD player in her 96 Toyota Camry. Now I've always had Sony head units. Never had any problem with them, in fact my stereo guy only carries Sony and Blapunkt (sp?) and hardly any of the latter.

Anyhow my mom isn't old she's about 45, but when it comes to CD players she's .... how do you say..... illiterate (sp?). I would like your suggestion on something simple, low(er) cost range, and decent to put into her car.

I told her I'd talk to my stereo guy and see what all he had, but I'm thinking maybe more along the lines of Pioneer or something for mom. Just keep those 3 ideals in mind when giving your opinion.

Thanks man.

I'm not Jason, but Pioneer has a nice $140 unit. Detachable face, blue screen, CD player, Easy EQ, presets,all that good crap. Its pretty cheap but good for the money I think.
Now, illiterate is right, Blaupunkt-that one was wrong [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img][img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Paging Jason

PIONEER BABY! Yeah, I like pioneer's decks. That and jvc is about all I use. Anyway, it depends on how much you want to spend, this is a real nice model for an msrp of 300, which means about 250 at the shops:

Re: Paging Jason

Jesus Willybob, you're the god of stereos now it seems, I hope you dont stat attraction the types with sigs like "01 Z71 sixteen 15" ers and a 10000 watt amplerfier and 235/75 R 15 tire" I'll shoot you in the damn head.

Anywho, the first 4 pioneer models on their line are a real good value and I love them. Real popular around here.

Re: Paging Jason

I have a Clarion BD216 it sounds great and it takes a lot to get it to skip. I have had all 4 wheels over a foot off the ground(long story) and it didnt skip. Also it was only $190 with tax. My dad has a Sonly Xplod in his big truck and it skips really easy along with my friend who has the same head unit in his BMW. My dad has a Pioneer in his van and that is a good unit for the price. The Blaupunkt like Clarion was pretty big years ago. My cousin has a Blaupunkt in his car and I dont think I have heard any thing better on just 2 6x9s.
