Planet Audio P375UA

The first component in a 12 volt music chain is the head unit, and Planet Audio is proud to introduce two, new, value priced units for 2010. Often referred to simply as a radio, the P375UA and its entry level brother, P370MA have evolved to provide much more than the ability to just tune stations. The P375UA is an iPod, MP3 compatible in dash 2 band AM and 3 band FM, CD receiver. The P375UA also affords you several options to interface your audio system with USB, SD memory card ports, and a front panel auxiliary input. All this plus a fully detachable front panel anti-theft feature, built-in equalizer, anti skip mechanism and wireless remote control.

Sony DSX-S100

Sony just announced the DSX-S100 head unit, which eliminates the need to have visible unsightly wires inside the car. The head unit has a sleek faceplate that flips down and outputs an integrated tune tray compartment featuring an iPod adapter, for quick connection to iPod or other digital media players. Your iPod and connector are secured inside the flip-down compartment of the receiver, away from view. Once connected to a device, the stereo flips back up and maintains all standard functions. The DSX-S100 features Sony's latest audio technologies, including DM+ Advanced, ZAPPIN and Quick-BrowZer. This model is both satellite and HD Radio ready, and features a large, informative two line LCD display.

SoundStormLab ML33USA

The engineers at SSL recognize that the end of the CD is rapidly approaching and have subsequently developed the mechanism-less ML33USA. This solid state AM/FM receiver with 30 station presets was specifically designed for those who enjoy their music on the go.

Boasting a 3.5mm auxiliary input compatible with the audio outputs of the iPod® and other MP3 players, as well as both USB and SD/MMC Card ports, the ML33USA provides numerous media playback options. The absence of a CD mechanism makes the ML33USA the ideal head unit for marine and off-road vehicle applications. Where waves or bumps in the road would typically disrupt the performance of a CD, your portable media device, working through the ML33USA, will keep on rocking without interruption.

This unit comes standard with a detachable front panel, RCA outputs, and a quartz digital clock.
