Prelude: Thunder has stopped playing my CD-R/Ws. It's touch and go, and going more by the day. Since I prefer my burned CDs to my bought ones, I want a new system.

Okay, there are enough geeks out there, so what's the problem?

Why am I still living in a world where you can't search for electronics by spec? Audio, video, computers, cars - seriously guys, seriously.

I do not care about price, model, or brand. Not even a little.

Specs and features. That's it. That's the initial way I've ever looked for something and it's irritating as all get out when that's the last thing you're told about a product.

*rolls eyes*

And no, it's not fun "comparing" products when what you want to do is *compare all* against what you're looking for, i.e. search by spec.

So... I'll just jot this down for another time.

Car Stereo
Size: DIN

Features:
CD-R/W compatible
CD, mp3, aac playback
nice to have: self-hiding faceplate (will accept detachable), hd/satellite radio ready

Specs:
THD: <2%
Signal to noise ratio: 94+ dB
RMS Wattage: 20Wx4+
Voltage pre-out: 4+
Amp type: MOSFET

Don't care who makes it or what it looks like or what it costs. I'll evaluate those after my list has been checked off.

*sighs*

Update:
Current winner is the Pioneer DEH-P5900iB. Interesting enough, a receiver in this 'series' was the first one I found and liked. The site http://www.crutchfield.com was the biggest help of all.
*ahem* 6900 ... the idea of creating folders on my flash drive rather than burning CDs is quite enticing.

Off the top of my head - have you tried the Crutchfield catalog?

I know all their paper catalog listings were spec-heavy. Always got my car stereos through Crutchfield. Never had any complaints.

*laughs*

My co-worker said that to me as well at lunch.

They are the *best* I've found, and they helped me make my decision too. *see post update*
