The Insignia IN-MP101 is an in-dash CD/MP3/WMA/FM/AM player/receiver with a USB port. Insignia is Best Buy's house brand.

The brief summary description on the MP3-CD Decks listing page says "40 watts peak (22 watts RMS) x 4; USB port; OGG playback; AM/FM-MPX PLL tuner; wireless remote", but the bit about "OGG playback" appears to be an error.

The remote control is 21/8" x 33/8", i.e. credit-card-sized, and 1/4" thick.


brief review

My main problem with this player is that it inserts a gap in between songs, even on traditional audio CDs; this is annoying when listening to (for example) certain Beatles CDs, and kind of ruins "Fingertips" by They Might Be Giants. There is also a short (maybe 1/10 second?) fade-in on each track, which is short enough not to be noticeable most of the time. We have run into both of these problems with other players, and this player is certainly no worse than some portable units we've used, but you'd think an in-dash unit would be able to play CDs properly. --Woozle 10:09, 13 May 2006 (EDT)
