Car Stereo Dorkiness

So, I've had the same stupid Pioneer DEH-1600 Head unit in my cars well, since about 1998. I have a 6 disc CD Changer for it so it's not too bad. I recently decided I was going to upgrade it. So today via crutchfeld.com i ordered.

Pioneer DEH-P4800MP CD/MP3/WMA Player

and two more Pioneer TS-G1641R 6-1/2"/6-3/4" 2-way Speakers

So I'll have an all pioneer matching system that will play my mp3 discs. . .AND has an input on the back to run an RCA - 1/8th in Converter so I can hook up all kinds of devices directly to it


Happy boy. I'll save the DEH-1600/6 - Disc CD Changer for when I sell the beast.

Re: DEH-1600
which is why I got this Pioneer :) MP3 and RCA input on the back. . . run a nice little Monster RCA - 1/8th in and it's covered.

Re: DEH-1600
Cruchfield is giving me 2 options:

Alpine CHA-S634 - 6-disc Ai-NET CD/MP3 Changer

USA SPEC SCD-A88i - 6-disc CD changer for select 1991-up Honda / Acura

Both are out of stock at the moment. :(

The CD player keeps crapping out, so I need to replace it. Neither one of those have the RCA jacks like yours (at least I did not see it listed) so for an iPod hookup I would have to go with:

Peripheral iPod adapter
USA SPEC iPod® Interface

Never heard of this USA SPEC folks, so I'm leaning towards the Alpine and figure something out with the iPod.
