If you are looking for an aftermarket receiver with a good combination of performance, features, and price, you can't go wrong with the Alpine CDE-102. With a rated output of 18X4 watts RMS, it's more than capable of driving factory speakers and at least sufficient for most
good 2-way or 3-way aftermarket speakers. It looks good, is very easy to operate, and sounds great.
For a low-priced receiver, the CDE-102 is definitely high value. It has both front panel USB and AUX inputs. Plug a thumb drive into the USB and play all week. Or plug in a separate audio source, such as an iPod, MP3 player, or like I have, a "dock-and-play" XM receiver, and play even longer.
The CDE-102 is definitely worth considering and SonicElectronix makes it really affordable.
