Pimpin' my ride...

So when I bought the Odyssey I was very happy with the steering wheel controls, and figured that the stock CD player would be good. My needs are simple, right? Well, somewhere in my brain I had forgotten that straight-up CD players don't play MP3 discs. Ouch. This one did handle CD-R discs quite well, but still...

The final nail in the coffin was Energy 92.7 announcing that they were going "all nineties". Energy 92.7 is the only radio station that I was likely to hear something I enjoyed on. Hell, it's the only radio station in the bay area with a greater than 1:1 music/commercial ratio, so you could say "hear music on" and be valid. But all nineties? Ugh. Time to give up on terrestrial radio.

So I got the Alpine 9857 head unit, the interface for my steering wheel controls, the Sirius satellite connector, and the I-Pod adapter installed by Bay Stereo in Mountain View.

Sweet. I hate paying for music, but at least I don't have to listen to DJs bitch and whine about the warts on their toes any more.
