Need a new stereo. Suggestions?


Recommended Posts

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.

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