hi again
im the guy who recently bought the mark 2 zed.I got the kenwood cd unit its kdc-4027.Basically i think its big smelly pants to put it bluntly,the problem is the cds seem to skip alot.I know its not the bumps cos it does it skips in the same places and the cds play absolutely fine in other cd players and never skipped!!!.Can any of you ice gurus recommend me a cd head unit thats not to expensive and handles the cds without skipping (unless obviously heavily scratched) only its beginning to annoy me.
many thanks i apreciate your input

pretty much any o the base models by alpine pioneer an even kenwood cos i think the ones the sell to manufactureers are just pish but i would reccommend goin somewhere like halfords just to listen to em before buying then buy somewhere else

Halfords can be expensive tho...go to halfords, listen to them, find the one you like...then shop around...

we;; if ye get a new headunit an it jumps jst send it back under the gaurantee you would get, by whichever headunit sounds best an is in your budget, i could say get the same as me but you might prefer the sound from another one so best hunting about yoursel, different folk wi different ears!!
