Ready for your digital music files
Blaupunkt's Madrid 210 CD receiver gives you a USB port for plugging in storage devices full of music (no iPod® controls) — just plug in and take control of your music from the receiver's controls. This receiver will play all your CDs, including discs loaded with MP3 or WMA files. You can also plug a satellite radio or almost any other audio source into the front-panel auxiliary input.
Sound controls and system expansion
The Madrid belts out plenty of power, and you can tweak the sound with a 3-band parametric equalizer that lets you select specific frequencies to boost or cut. If you want more kick, the two pairs of preamp outputs make it easy to add external amps or a powered sub and an amp.
Note: We made a special purchase on this Blaupunkt receiver, and it's a great deal. Keep in mind that you'll have to activate the AM tuner and reset the FM tuner for American stations — the process is explained in the manual. Also, this receiver does not come with a warranty, but it is covered by our 60-day satisfaction guarantee.

Why replace your factory radio?
Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.
