I bought a Kenwood KDC-MP232 last night for $100 from best buy, talked the guy down from $129. So I was impressed with that, I didn't even have to walk out first, it was super-easy... But, wtf is with modern car stereo's?? They're either flimsy as heck, or full of ridiculous crap. Here's what I wanted in a car stereo: -HD Radio ready -USB port -Aux input -Front load CD -Tuner scan/seek -Wheel volume and tuner There are no stereo's with those features! Most of the stereo's on display have these 1x5 screens with animation, they flip down to load a cd, have push button tuning, etc. One of them even took photo cards to do slide shows. WTF am I supposed to be looking at when I'm driving? Not to mention there are NONE that I can picture successfully matching ANY dash panel. It's like your only option for an aftermarket stereo is to have it scream "I'm not original and make no attempt to look so". So I finally settled on the Kenwood, thinking it also had the changer control for the changer I already have in the car. Here's what ticks me off about it: -"Scan" is for CD's. WTF would I want that for, I usually know what CD I put in, I don't know what's on the radio, that's why I'd want to scan it. -"HD Ready" does not mean it can tune HD -It doesn't work with my Kenwood changer. It says it won't work with pre-97 changers in the manual. It would be nice if it said that on the box. -The tuning, um, "thing" (it's not a knob) is about the flimsiest POS I could imagine putting in a vehicle. -It's silver and has freaking red and blue lights all over it. My car may not be a showpiece, but at least the dash was consistent and matched. -The Aux input listed as a feature is actually the changer input, which is also the HD tuner input. I have to build a circuit and an interface to plug my MP3 player into it. So why aren't manufacturers making old-man aftermarket tuners? Everything on the shelf was Bling first, function later. Like the Civic crowd is forcing us out!
