Thumbs up

Hi! I'm searching for an in-dash cd changer to replace my stock radio and stock cd changer in the trunk.

I know Nakamichi is producing one (MB-75) but they are very hard to find where I am. If I can't find something else, I'll order it on the web.

Do you know if there's any other manufacturer that produce this kind of in-dash Cd-Changer??

Thanks!

Henri

changers are reaaly outdated. Finding an mp3 capable HU is a better choice.

As far as I know, only Nak makes an indash changer. I believe there's one for sale in the classified section of this site. I wouldn't recomend them though. While Nakamichi makes fantastic HU's (love mine), the indash changer isn't very reliable. I have a friend who bought one, and has had to swap it out...TWICE. Nakamichi was good enough to swap it, but it's just the hassle of not having it work.

Yeah... I don't really like MP3 quality... I have a lot of them on my computer but in my car, I prefer high quality original Cd's...

On "some" occasions I burn few MP3 and my CD Changer supports CDR...

Would you recommend having a trunk CD Changer (another one, since my oem won't fit any HU) and a HU that would read MP3 Cd's ? I don't think Nakamichi fabricate Mp3 HU, right?

I like Clarion also...

Tell me what you would suggest... I'm not into "pimp my ride" cars... I like the classy look of Nakamichi HU and the fact that they are same color as the BMW Amber. I prefer sound quality instead of power and bass...

Thanks for your reply

Alpinehas great SQ and many have matching amber lights. Most have a screen that is not too appealing (to me) but luckily they realize it and you can turn in off.

Prez is right, Alpine makes great head units. Before I started buying Nakamichi decks, I had a couple of Alpine cd players (amongst others).

If you want uncomprimised sound quality, buy a Nakamichi head unit.

If you wan a good sounding deck with tons of features, buy an Alpine.

Either of these can control a changer of the same make.
