Video: Double-DIN CD receiver roundup

I've written about car audio and navigation at Crutchfield since 2006. During that time, I've driven to a lot of concerts in many different cities, so portable navigators have come in quite handy. I've also worked at several record stores and volunteered as a DJ at a community radio station, so I've applied the lessons of listening to music from several sources and in various environments to my own evaluations and writing.

Lots of vehicles have dashes that can accommodate double-DIN (4" tall) receivers. However, many owners of these vehicles aren’t necessarily looking for a touchscreen or video receiver. Double-DIN CD receivers keep things simple, yet still take advantage of all that dash real estate. We hit the Crutchfield Labs to compare six of our most popular models, looking at such features as Bluetooth® compatibility, display quality, volume knob, and more.
