Need a new stereo. Suggestions?

5 posts in this topic

I used to be well up on ICE. Dad used to own a car electric business and I spent a lot of time at suppliers. Having been out of that game for 10 years now however I am totally clueless as to what's good and what's not!

I've got a little fabia that I use for trips on my own without the kids and I'm missing having more than a radio. MrsP has offered to buy me a new sound system for our anniversary.

I do believe in the Fabia you can pull out the factory tape/radio and tray underneath and replace with a double din? This in mind I'd like to get something that's double din that talks to my iPhone 5S or talks to and charges the iPod touch I used to have hidden in the dash of the Audi.

Don't need nav. Don't need phone hands free.

Budget is anywhere up to about £200 or so.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Not sure I'd go with a double DIN if you don't need navigation.

 

The Pure DAB head units look good for the money - around £130.

 

Mind you... I've just noticed you can get a Pioneer App Radio for under 200 quid on eBay.

If I wasn't so against aftermarket head units, I'd probably stick something like that in the Porsche.

Alpine. +++

 

Without question.  I may be able to arrange a discount for you if you do want an Alpine head unit.

 

Something like this.

 

If you spot an Alpine unit you like, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

If I remember right I had alpine in the work van and it was brill.

Discount on that would be great if you could get it, thanks!

That's the outgoing model that doesn't work with newer iPhones. That's why it's so cheap. :)
