Is that all? I'm looking at that model # on etronics.com and for $134.00
it appears that we get MP3 CD playback detachable face, remote control and
a whole raft of minor features. This thing goes for 199.00 at
Crutchfield, where we find that the 200w Max power comes to a still
respectable 19w/ch, wtih front and rear preamp outs for the power hungry.

That's impressive enough to make me consider swapping out for my factory
head unit in the Durango, despite it having both CD and cassette
capability. I don't have any real cassettes anyway, the adapter stays in
the deck 24/7.
