I just want a head unit that will play mp3 dvd's....that one worth it? Its really nice

Im worried about it getting stolen though. Will people still steal a head unit if you just pop the face plate off?

it's worth it i think.

it looks just like a regular alpine lower-line headunit, so it's not going to attract that much attention.

JVC also makes a headunit that plays MP3 DVD's. it was in the $300 range, it has the "giga Mp3" feature which allows you to put up to 1500 songs on a single dvd cd.

People will steal a Kraco, so always take the head unit with you. Alpine offers several units that will play MP3s. Look thru the classifieds here as well.

pffft,thats alotta cash for a 2v HU and no Iopd
Alpine needs to get back in the front of the HU pack like they used to be ,
they IMO are behind the curve - Excelons are king in 2006 as far as I am concerned 5v pre outs,Ipod ready - That alpine looks prehistoric too
