I went to my car yesterday only to find someone ripped my Alipine 6536 out of the dash and took my NEO 35 HDD car Jukebox with it!


NEO is long out of business but I'd like to get a HDD based MP3 player with a good clean folder navigation menu like the NEO had. I have about 109Gigs of MP3's at 100% VBR and I'd hate to have to dice up the collection.


Looking at some car stereos today I noted that some of them have USB jacks on the front. I've been out of the loop in car stereo trends for over 10yrs now so I have no idea what is going on.


I don't need video capabilities on this. Just something that will get my entire music collection at my disposal back in the car with a menu that you can navigate while driving, I need a big high contrast display.


I've looked at Zune and Archos. There are so many ipods out there I don't know where to even start looking on them. Are there any other HDD based portable MP3 players out there?


So any advice y'all can give me will be much appreciated.

Pioneer receivers have the ability to play directly from a hard drive. I'm not sure of the limits though. I'm in the process of re-ripping my entire CD collection and will attempt to install 2.5" external enclosure with 2,000+ CD's in WMA 320 format.

Cosmo, I'm leaning toward the classic for $234 it's hard to beat.

I assume your talking about ones with a USB front jack and not a propietary rear jack of some sort. In that case would they read a jump drive plugged into the port?


At least you got CD's It took me a yr of weekends to dub my 400 Lp's!
