The crappy Kenwood stereo in my Intrigue died this morning. Since it's my beater and I really don't feel like spending a ton of money on the damn thing, I'm considering picking this up. I usually despise stuff by Boss, but it appears to be decently reviewed and it meets my needs. Anyone have experience with this or something similar?

I saw that yesterday when I was looking for 2-way radios, seems like a decent buy. Won't impress the kids, but neither will the car. If it won't play nice with your ipod or whatever, Amazon returns are easy.

Heh.. give it a shot. Anything w/ aux in will work for an iPod or any real mp3 player.

Everyone makes great points. I went ahead and ordered it and I'll see what happens. I'll provide feedback for anyone else looking for a cheap head unit.

It'll be interesting to see how it works once I get it. I'm aware its a cheap POS, but I'm trying not to spend any money on the Intrigue beyond regular maintenance... for 30 some bucks, I'll give it a shot. Worst case scenario, it's garbage and I'll send it back to Amazon.

I installed this today and for 30 bucks its way more than I expected. FM reception and sound quality are much better than the Kenwood I replaced. I haven't tried any of my iPods on the USB port, but it works flawlessly with an 8 gig SD card. The only thing I'm worried about at this point is the lifespan of the unit, but for 30 bucks if I only get a year or two out of it, I'd be happy.

I agree, a year out of a 30 buck stereo is winning for sure. Well, I know what to buy if I ever need a cheap hu!
