HELP: CD Player?

I currently have a stock 6-disc premium sound radio in my truck and they keep going bad. This is like 6th or 7th I have had in my truck in a year and I am tired of Ford's B.S. to keep getting them replaced, I love the sound of it but.... What I am wonderg is what would be a good model/ brand Player to get in my truck that will sound good and not break my wallet? If you have an after market radio in your truck and have a pic. of it would you mind posting a pic. I like they way the stock looks and I really want this to look good. Thanks in advanced for all of your help!

Mike

Alpine is a good brand that won't make you broke. Mine was $200 with free install kit and shipping from Crutchfield

Alpine is a good brand. The new CDA-9856 can be had on Crutchfield for $199 with everything you need or ebay for a little less.

Alpine, Pioneer,Sony,Kenwood etc. all have headunits in your price range. Like anything else it all comes down to personal preference. You can't go wrong with any brand that's been around along as these guys have.
Crutchfield has the best customer service I've ever experienced but you pay for in higher prices. If your relatively new to car audio and plan to do the install yourself, pay the extra money, Crutchfield's Tech Support will help you your installation problems and questions.(you will have them).

Im planning on getting the Pioneer DEH-P6800MP from Crutchfield real soon. Paying a bit extra for the blue display, just to keep the color scheme going in my truck

For laptop ones, you may want to do a search on the forums. Several members have good ones, but I can't remember which kind.
