Ok today I went to the good guys which are a very large store similar to best buy and staples. They sell everything from computers to stereos tv’s videos and more.
I found an awesome Panasonic stereo with iPod dock and usb input cd player that plays mp3 wma and cdr cdrw discs. Easy to use not menu driven and good sound for the price.
Haven’t decided yet on the model I am after but as soon as I find one I like or purchase one, i’ll be sure to let everyone know and post a link to the stereo.
