    Innovatek - Reliable? Need a cheap cd player *ebay link*

    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

    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

    i'm not talking about how loud it is, just talking about how much ur car shakes. That's how the HU would skip

    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.
