Hey guys,

my kenwood cd player took a **** on me and friend internally. Im looking for a new cheap deck that has some cool USEABLE functions, for a cheap price.

I was lookin on ebay cause I was set on getting an alpine or a pioneer since I hear there good for settings eq's and such. And I came across this deck, Itll go for about $200ish when the auctions done, they all seem to.

Ive never tried a cheap cd player before but they have a lot of good feedback fomr them, what I want though, is adjustable EQ (bass/treble and this one seems to have it, atleast 2 rca outputs (can anyone confirm this has it, i suspect they labbelled the same rca output twice at the end of the description). I also like that it seems to have a connection for my USB flash cards, that I can just load up with mp3's and play right off it.

Im concerned with startup times and such to, I dont want to be waiting 8 minutes everytime I start the car for a cd to start, or to read a file.

I also want this display to look good, when just playing a cd or whatever, I dont want a cheesy interface.

What do you guys think, anyone have or tried one? No hearsay please, need rela opinions

i doubt it. The display of that screen used a lot of photoshop to look that nice

wtf? two threads?

12-06-2007, 04:10 PM
do you guys think it would have 2 sets of preouts? Would it skip alot?

12-06-2007, 04:11 PM
only u and me in here man, nobody else.

U'd have to email and ask about the preouts and skipping would depend on ur ride quality and how loud of a system u have. Which i don't think is that loud

12-06-2007, 04:16 PM
2 cadence 15's on 2k watts gets plenty loud in a 6 cube ported 34hz box...

12-06-2007, 04:24 PM
i'm not talking about how loud it is, just talking about how much ur car shakes. That's how the HU would skip

12-06-2007, 04:25 PM
you didn't need 2 threads to figure this out.

12-06-2007, 05:00 PM
ya I didnt see there was a specific head unit forum so i thought it was better suited in here

thanks for pointing that out...

Konaki makes knock of of the jvc avx2 it would prolly be a better bet then that

12-06-2007, 07:35 PM
Millionbuy has several HU's like that for cheaper... That would be well over 200$ after shipping... Of course I don't know about the quality... But you said you were looking for cheap.

Take a look at the Jensen VM8012... really solid deck, never skipped on me doing 143+, personally I don't trust the Innovatek stuff, read TOO many bad things about them.

Incidentally I do have an 8012 for sale like new, PM me if interested...

If it looks too good to be true it probably is.
