I want to buy a new CD-MP3 HU at 250-350$. I'm thinking of Sony CDX-MP450X or Kenwood KDC-MP8017.<br />Maybe even JVC KDSH99 or Panasonic CQ-DP171U.<br />Which one you think is the best? Any other recommendations? <br />Will they all play every (fix or variable) MP3 bit rate compression?<br /> <img src="confused.gif" border="0"> </strong><hr></blockquote>
I have the SH99 and I highly recommend it. It plays ID-3 tags, has 3 sets of pre-outs, sub level controls, etc. The Sh99 will play any mp3 file (as I think all the others will) so that shouldn't be a big factor in your choice. The only thing is that the SH99 deck isn't that flashy, it's cool to look out but it doesn't have screensavers like pioneer decks have.
