I love my mother. No, I REALLY love her. In the butt.
 
Dash units with no disc players?

Why isn't there a plethora of dash units out there with just a USB input (my USB device of choice is a USB thumbdrive, works well in my JVC currently) and optionally an fm tuner?

addendum: without the CD/dvd player the thing should cost ~$75 for a decent one. I don't want a media hub that's ~$300

I'd say you're in the minority if you're able to get by without a CD player... The mass appeal of a thumb drive only deck would be limited, and would be a hard sell for car audio shops.

I'm not saying I wouldn't love a deck like this, I'm just saying I don't think the general public would buy it.

Because CD's still offer superior sound than MP3. The CD isn't dead.

Yeah, you can't play porn DVDs on them without the drive slot. I think as thumb drives become even more ubiquitous, we'll see more decks with at least an USB jack on the front panel, just as we're seeing them with SD card slots. At some point, tho, I think USB will become the dominant method. but I can't see the cd/DVD slot going away, especially if they bring bluray prices down, somehow.

there are quite a few USB input options available on crutchfield, but I'm just curious as to why there aren't more options like iced-t linked. I've had my JVC for about 4-5 years now and it's been pretty epic with the USB slot

I think he's channeling ickytwerp's

Actually, I have to agree with him: CD sound is far superior to MP3.

blu-ray is far superior but they still make DVDs. it's not a one horse race. and if you want pure audio quality, in the car really isn't the best place.. especially in my truck

USB isn't the dominant method? It's the majority of what I see, moreso than SD card slots. Kenwood line has standardized on USB inputs for 5+ years.

Maybe not your truck, but mine sounds pretty good.

Just updated it last week. I can DEFINITELY tell the difference between CD and MP3 now, even at 320 CBR.



(Swapping CD's sucks. I'm considering reripping to WAV.)
