Depends on your 'ear'. I have replaced Stock radios within weeks after
buying new cars! Some of them just aren't very good in one aspect or
another. The only one I have hesitated on is the Pioneer unit in my Scion,
because it's 'bearable'. But, I have an adapter harness waiting in case I
want to hook up my JVC MP3/WMA player...

I was looking into an Alpine but found the JVC KD-HDR1 that plays MP3 and
has a built-in HD radio for not very much money. What do you think?

Amazon.com is much cheaper but doesn't provide the installation kits like
Crutchfield.

I have three JVC's but I buy them on E-Bay for about half retail (or less)
Two are MP3/WMA players, one is not, all are excellent.

But, you got me! I'm a technocrat...what is HD?

The ONLY think I have against JVC is that I have an external XM radio that
can either use the built in FM modulator or Direct Connect with a
Headphone type cable. The adapter harness from JVC is $50!!! No
front-panel inputs...
