Here you go - much more simple and with a waterproof box for your Ipod you're not paying for stuff you don't need.

But you cant play CDs or listen to the radio ........... CDs are great fun in rough weather - you get all of a second of music before it skips .......... & I love listening to Wogan on a nice morning.

My point exactly - CD's only work when stationary, but the music would all be on the Ipod anyway .............. are you a TOG then?

Unfortunately radio is a must have, not for me but for my dad...

Can't convince him that we'll never use it but ah-well!

I'm very tempted by a few of those Sony stereos but may just go for a cheapy for now and then at the end of the season when the boat won't be used too much (and I've got more money) play around with a few speaker and stereo setups.

We've currently only got 2 speakers, one each side of the cabin and ideally I'd like maybe one at ankle height underneath the console and a few towards the end of the cabin.

I had one of those Poly Planar things fitted and it was useless and after the second trip blew up.
You can play CDs if you have the right player in rough weather. We were playing CD's on the Conwy trip a few weeks ago that you may have read about on here and we certainly weren't stationary or in calm weather and it never missed a beat.
I have one of these on the link below, although I didn't pay anything like this for it, and it has been brilliant. Has a CD player that also plays MP3's on disc, AM/FM radio, Aux input for MP3 players and can power up to 4 speakers without an amplifier loud enough to hear over the outboard.
One of the best bits of kit on the RIB at the moment.

I just spoke with an audio dealer about making up "just" a power amp with an iPod connector... No problem apparently. He figured a decent marine grade Sony amplifier, the connector and a couple of box speakers would be about $300 CDN.

I don't have space on my console for a head unit, and there's no reliable radio stations here anyway. Conveniently, I have the old C-Map card-reader slot, with waterproof cap still in my dash from an old GOS unit. It nicely fits a Nano and is watertight!
