    I see that Pioneer has a good reputation on this site for a in-dash CD player. I don't need the top of the line player but, I was wondering if you could pick up a good Pioneer or any other brand for around $100. I haven't been around a stereo shop for about 7 years so I am not current with the brands that are out there today. I am not too picky because right now I have a stock radio in my 74 Blazer. So anything is an improvement over that. I have a in-dash CD player on my Christmas list and I need some insight on what I can get for around $100 or so. Thanks in advance for the input.

    The cheapest Pioneer now that we (Best Buy) carries is the 1100 model for 140 bucks. No detachable face though. Thats another 20 bucks for the next model up.

    Last spring the stock deck finally crapped out, and I spent a long time shopping around for a new CD player for the Blazer. I finally decided on the Clarion 5675, which cost me around $300CDN installed. It's a 45x4 watt detachable face with remote control that allows for the addition of a CD changer. It also comes with a 3 year factory warranty!!!

    I spent a but more than I wanted, but I realized that the extra $50 gave me a lot better deck overall. IMHO, it's worth it to spend a few more bucks to get a deck that allows future system upgrades.
