Like most new receivers, this sleek number plays a wide variety of formats, including standard and recordable DVDs and CDs, plus CD-Rs or CD-RWs. But JVC adds a feature that'll blow your mind: Giga MP3. Using your computer and appropriate software, you can burn up to 100 hours of MP3s or WMAs on a single recordable DVD, and the KD-DV5100 will play them. Read more

Can this unit actually play a DVD with mp3 burned on it? Has anyone used one and how is it? Crutchfield has it for $300 only and you can find it much cheaper on Ebay. Best Buy has it for $300 w/ free installation.

What do you guys think?

It's not out yet. Just wait for it.

Nissmo, I checked into the JVC deck too, it looks cool for $300, just a few things I read turned me off, based on personal preference. It's screen display can be small when displaying titles and it doesnt "auto-resume" in the middle of a track (like when you turn off your car and then get back in later..it just restarts at the start of the song..)

The Alpine suggested looks costly, but Alpine is a great name.

Yes. The Alpine is 1200, it's on savinglots.com, but they are "out of stock". It's very nice, but the iPod feature is useless (for me at least) and the touch-pad scrolling isn't very usefull, esp. while driving...Otherwise I would get it in a heart beat; I'd like to see some reviews on the JVC though, and hopefully another company comes out with one, without all these bells and whistles like Alpine (I'm partial to Alpine and still, it's too much lol).
