Cheapest Deck with aux input?

Hey, I'm looking for the cheapest possible deck that comes with auxilary inputs so I can run my ipod through it.

I found the Clarion DXZ445 on crutchfield.com for $129USD...can I go any lower?

Maybe someone has something used?

Thanks,


Walter.

USB is more for items like flash drives. I haven't tried it but I'm assuming you could also use the transfer cable for the Ipod to connect it up as well.

The AUX wouldn't do anything with a flash drive, so that's a possible disadvantage. It could only take input from another audio device like an mp3 player/Ipod.

No loss in music sound quality. Through a 3.5mm jack or rca the music is played on a secondary device. Any sound loss or distortion from that device will be past on to the head unit. If you use a head unit with SD card slot or USB then it is direct digital processing of the file directly into the head unit and I found with mine that it sounds just as ggod as the cd player. I have been really impress with the USB and sd card head unit.
