    Need a solution, even though I have the 117 but somewhere deep down I feel its just not doin the trick, though my friends say I am thinking way too much but somehow I feel something is missing.

    If money is not an object, there are choices like McIntosh MX406, Nakamichi CD-700 II,Clarion HX-D2, Pioneer P99RS etc :)

    Bro looking at,the current setup I think money is the last thing on mind, but do note the nakamichu and mcintosh do not have the forward or rewind feature and incase u wanna listen to track 10 in am audio cd then.u have to.first listen to all 9 songs first.
    As for pioneer p99 rs I will never opt for one, for the price its a disgrace I would compare it with nothing more than an eclipse. hx d2 yes I am eying this one only, lets see how fast I get it I am in que for it.

    Well, makamichi and mcintosh do not believe in those useful creature comforts. I think logically, HX-D2 will suit you as your next upgrade.

    Btw - have you tried playing alac files from an iPOD using 117? what was your impression?

    I play only original CD's thru the 117, rest all features are untouched, I recently heard the hx d2 in a friends ride and from there on everything els is just not sounding tht good.
    Actually me confused between alpine IVR D800r and clarion HX D2

    Yeah, let us continue on your thread.

    I do not really know about the IVR D800R.

    So the worthy replacement has been identified and bought. As and when the install happens, pics and review shall be put up.

    It's a beauty! The 5v gold plated RCA outputs, the simple, elegant and understated faceplate, the small and cute Bluetooth adapter et al. Here are the pics.
