After 9 years, the CD player died in my beloved Toyota all-terrain dive vehicle. If you think dSLRs have come a long way in the last 10 years, you should check out car radios - my new one has 3 pre-amps, CD, ipod-ready (and controls via the radio), USB-enabled, bluetooth-enabled, 2 aux channels, and is extremely shiny. All for $130, which is much less than the old one cost 9 years ago. It's like an old friend's child I haven't seen in years; the change is just amazing.

That is all. Enjoy your Mondays.

I'm working on a stereo for a ski boat right now and I am also shocked at how inexpensive they are. Really amazingly cheap.
I love it when a plan comes together.

You'd have to pedal pretty hard to generate enough electricity to run it and the speakers - sounds like work.
