Farenheit TID-831NRB DVD receiver: the Big Screen comes to the dashboard

I've written about car audio for Crutchfield since 2003, after four years as Crutchfield Sales Advisor, and 10 years as a music teacher. I'm an avid music listener, with a real love of classical and film music. I love having a great system in my car, and I'll still match the system in my 98 Ford Ranger (may it rest in piece) up against anything else I've heard for great SQ. I attended West Virginia University, where I received a Master's Degree in Music Performance and a Bachelor's Degree in History. Let's Go Mountaineers!

We get to see some pretty cool gear come through the door at Crutchfield, but the Farenheit TID-831NRB really turned some heads. Most in-dash DVD receivers with retractable screens have a 7-inch screen, but Farenheit has broken through with a model that packs an 8.3-inch screen inside the chassis of the receiver.

Some clever engineering and space management is the key. Rather than try to explain it, here's a short video I took so you could see how Farenheit got that big screen into that little slot for yourself. And yes, the Farenheit TID-831NRB screen deployment looks that cool in real life.
