Mx406 - Mcintosh Am/fm/cd Player with Aux Input

I've had several Audio systems in my car, but I always felt that something was missing in the quality of their output. It is only my new Mcintosh system that gives me the kind of satisfaction that I look for when it comes to music quality.


Alpine DHA S690 - DVD changer

I don't like traveling alone, so I always love to be accompanied by one of my children. This new Alpine 6 disc changer in our car has made long distance traveling fun for both me and my children. They even keep reminding me about getting out these days.


Clarion DFZ675MC 2-DIN CD/MP3/WMA/SD Receiver with CENET

Clarion has been my companion on long journeys for the past two years, and I have not faced any problems with it so far. Its SD card slot is amazing, because I could carry many songs of my choice on a long road trip.



Alpine CD player is a very dynamic system and I just love the features. I recommended it to my dad, who lets me take his car out on the weekends. My friends like to join me on my long weekend drives now.



The USB connection facility on my new JVC KW-XR810 is very impressive. I used to have a lot of trouble with CDs and DVDs in the past due to scratches. This system allows me to play my favorite music easily from portable devices. My opinion is that it is a must-have feature on all new car audio systems.


Pioneer Deh-P9800Bt In-Dash Cd/Mp3 Receiver With Oel Display

Pioneer Deh-P9800Bt is exactly what I was looking for, because it is equipped with wireless Bluetooth technology. My car audio system has become every neighbor’s envy with its MP3, AAC Receiver, CD and Wav display.


Alpine iDA-X305S - Radio / digital player - Full-DIN - in-dash - 50 Watts x 4

I was happy with my old system until I found the Alpine iDA-X305S, which allows me to use personalized wallpapers on it. Its high power amplifier has often made my friends want to accompany me on long drives, especially for business trips.


JVC KD-AVX11 DVD/CD Receiver with 2.7-Inch Monitor and iPod/Bluetooth/Satellite Ready Receiver

My children keep insisting on going for a road trip since I’ve installed the JVC 2.7-Inch LCD Monitor in my car system. While I drive peacefully, they enjoy movies and music videos without disturbing me at all. The one year warranty is quite comforting, as I have nothing to worry when my children fiddle with the receiver.


Kenwood DPX303 Dual-DIN AAC/WMA/MP3 CD Receiver with External Media Control

I am very picky when it comes to music, so I knew that I had to get the best system to listen to my music while sitting behind the wheel. I love all Kenwood products and they have never let me down to date. The DPX303 Dual-DIN sound clarity has never ceased to overwhelm me.


JVC KW-XR810 Double-DIN Bluetooth Dual USB/CD Receiver with USB 2.0 for iPod/iPhone, and Bluetooth/Satellite/HD Radio add-on capability

JVC Dual USB/CD receiver has made my long boring journeys very pleasant now. I travel close to 10 miles everyday back and forth to work, but have never been bothered by the traffic jams, especially with my SAT/HD radio facility in my new car system.
