    I've been considering getting an in-dash mp3 player for my car (stock speakers, etc., I just like the music, if I want to listen to it at a quality level that is above good I'd listen to it in my living room) and would like to know which of these 3 are better, or if you have better solutions.

    I would prefer to get either the Jenson MP3510 or the Sony CDX-MP450X since I can get $30 off at Best Buy with a gift certificate, but seeing as they want considerably more money than the link below, I'd just buy it there and find someone to install it (car electronics + me = bad)

    I've looked up what rms, thd, etc mean, however I don't know which are trade offs, thus I'm asking "Out of these, which would be best for an okay sounding system that will still be good in 2 or 3 years"

    Go for the Sony, it's a quality product, and much better than Jensen. I associate Jensen with Wal-Mart and Kmart. However, their products are much better than they used to be, but i stil would never touch them. So go for the sony, in the long run it will be worth it, and it looks much better. You might want to take a look at the Aiwa and Kenwood also.

    the sony mp3 player i saw at a competior's store was not even funtioning in the display, we had to use one of my disk in a regular deck to test the sub i bought. we droped sony a while back because their quality was really starting to get awful.

    I agree with Loud Sony decks to often just seem to fall apart. Ure best bet is to go with the JVCSH99!

    i have the sony one, and i don't really like it too much. it takes forever to read the mp3 cd's. when i got it it was the only mp3 player available though, thats why i got it.

    Well, I took a look at the JVCSH99's and they're quite expensive, and the one thing I couldn't find out is how the software for making the cd's are, and how it reads it.

    A friend said that his Jensen could read 8 directories and that was the only way to sort the music, I'd prefer to not have more than 2 or 3 cd's in my car (the whole idea for my wanting it is to not have to deal with a cd player and switching out discs, added weight of a changer, etc.).

    Anyhow, thanks for the advice, I'll go with the JVC when I can find a really good deal on one.
