Default Help me choose a deck for my pops!!!

Okay i need some help. my dad wants a cd player in our 96 accord sedan but i know he isn't willing to take out and put back on a detachable face. so i've narrowed down these three stealth/flip faces. their all around 200 bucks give or take $20.I havn't had any experience with these brands so any comments or sugestions would be very helpful. by the way my dads just wants a simple cd player, we're not planning to upgrade speakers or ad a sub any time soon. thanks in advance

if you're trying to stay around the $200 price range, and want "d-mask", i'd recommend the KDC-519. It's basically the same thing as the KDC-5019, but I think it looks better.

i know the Kenwood KDC-5019 is a step higher then the KDC-519, but through a hookup i can get the 5019 for around 220 shipped. thanks for the reply!!!

I'm leaning towards the kenwood but then again the Awia plays mp3s. anything other suggestion would be really helpful, thanks !!

I also would go with the kenwood- good looks and reliable. Unless he really wants to be able to play mp3s, go with the kenwood :D
