Our take on the Blaupunkt Atlanta 110

If your ride needs a sonic tune-up, Blaupunkt's Atlanta 110 CD receiver offers better power, clearer sound, and more options than most factory radios. The clarity comes from an internal amplifier that puts out plenty of power, while the options include a front-panel auxiliary input for your music player and the ability to play MP3/WMA files on discs.

Replace that factory stereo

If your ride needs a sonic tune-up, Blaupunkt's Atlanta 110 CD receiver offers better power, clearer sound, and more options than most factory radios. The clarity comes from an internal amplifier that puts out plenty of power, while the options include a front-panel auxiliary input for your music player and the ability to play MP3/WMA files on discs.

And here's another sweet bonus — the Atlanta comes with a remote control, so you can change tunes and settings on the road without having to reach down and fiddle with the stereo.

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.

    Not bad for the money

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Not a bad little unit. It performs as advertised and was easy to install / set up. The menus are not exactly intuitive so it pays to read the manual first. Overall the display looks good and is not too flashy. I didn't want a ton of blinky bright lights like a ton of the aftermarket radios have so I was pleased with the display on this one.

    Pros: looks good and sounds great at a reasonable price

    Cons: menus are hard to navigate. read the manual first if you want to change options

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The price was great and the sound is more than I expected. I can only use this for CD's because I cannot set the region for the radio. I get two radio channels but they come in poorly. I followed the instructions for setting the region in the owners manual but it does not work. I will replace this stereo in a month or so.

    Pros: Nice sound

    Cons: Cannot set the region making the radio useless.

    Still trying to figure out how to use these receivers, but the sound quality is better than I ever had in either of the vehicles we put them in.

    Pros: Nice looking and wonderful sound

    Cons: Too many features to figure out all at once.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Love the power of this deck but it lacks in ease of use and you can't see the clock on it when your using the front auxilary port. Other than that I'm glad I got it. Not a bad bang for your buck.

    Pros: Great RMS power

    Cons: No clock on AUX input mode, buttons are hard to press to change settings.

    OK simple radio

    alananacki from West Bridgewater on 12/14/2012

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I needed a simple radio to replace a defective factory radio. It worked. Some of the buttons were small, but only the ones that were needed to set the radio up and store the radio stations. Once set up it was easy for our customer to operate. The end user has poor eye sight and is technically challanged.


    Cons: On AM the electric window motors could be heard faintly through the radio. There was never any engine or alternator interference. Not perfect and it is only a minor issue.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    wonderful item, shows itself with a simplistic exterior, with the inner workings that gives so much control, just awsome



    Sharp looks for under $100!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Sharp little deck! This unit looks very nice without any attempts to catch your attention with gimmicks! I had purchased this for my little work car to replace an ancient pioneer, I am mostly using FM and the aux jack, FM reception and sound is somewhat weak compared to the 10 year old cd player it replaced. CD player sounds great, even better than the radio, AUX jack works nicely and again sounds better than the radio. Rotary volume knob is nice but slightly too small. The real downside to this deck is the menu functions and the key sequence required to change just about anything, tuner buttons are difficult up and down change the band not station, change the station but take some getting used to. The included remote is nice, but has several buttons that do nothing on this particular model. Pushing in volume switch when car is off turns on a one hour timer, nice if you forget to turn it off again, and no key required! Sound tuning is extremely limited, but the unit does have 22w/RMS per channel and actually sounds pretty good, RDS works great even on the 1-line screen and is a welcome surprise for this price range! There should have been a seperate faceplate key for audio, but again this is under $100. Would I recommend? Yes only for the price, looks and RDS though. Mine was a reman unit as well, but I have had another Blaupunkt before and the confusing menu was also somewhat of an issue, once the menu is learned it is acceptable, and nothing more.

    Pros: Correctly mounts in older japanese vehicles (91 Corolla you can actually use the trim ring!) RDS is awesome, 22W/RMS, rotary volume knob, smooth looks, CD and AUX input sound quality is amazing and really wakes up the amp almost to the point where I can excuse the dull FM sound quality, legible preset buttons on face, remote control included for free. Incredible value for the money. Decent adjustments for backlight and headlamp on dimming.

    Cons: FM reception and sound quality (AM is about the same, not horrible just sounds far away or too quiet), head scratching menu button timing and setup, limited SQ adjustments, faceplate feels loose when pressing buttons and is difficult to remove (afraid I will break the mounting arms off if not careful), tuner button functions opposite of what you would expect.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This is a refurbished item. That may or may not be the reason that setting the menu is almost impossible, requiring starting over multiple times to set any item.

    Pros: Good value for the money. Good sound

    Cons: The menu work erratically, requiring multiple times to set an item.

    Crutchfield response on 11/12/2012 This special purchase Blaupunkt receiver is not refurbished. It's a new car stereo that was originally intended for the European market.
